"Oh god, god I'm dead!" Shuichi moaned, rubbing his eyes. "I'm dead!"
"Shuichi! Oh thank god!" Yuki said, pulling Shuichi into his arms,

"Oh no! Yuki, you're dead too?!"
"You're not dead you idiot."
"So…this isn't heaven?"
"Who says you'd be getting into heaven?"

"So…so I'm not dead?! I'm alive?!"
"You're alive!!"

"Oh my god!" He opened his eyes and looked around. The room was packed to the limit with people. K, Hiro, Sakano, Fujisaki, Ryuichi…they barely all fit.

"Are you feeling okay?" Hiro asked, his eyes showing both worry and joy.

"I'm feeling great! I mean…my stomach hurts a little…but other then that I'm great!"

"Thank god!"
"So what happened?"
"After Tatsuha shot you," Yuki began. "and you passed out, the door had burst open. The police had been called. They arrested Tatsuha, who had apparently been drugging Taki and Tohma to get them on his side."

"But…who called them?"
"It was Sakano."
"What?"

"He had been following K since he dragged Hiro out of the room at NG. So he knew exactly what was going on. Once he saw me and him get ambushed by them, he called the police. They got there just in time."
"Thank god Sakano's nosy!" K said, putting an arm around Sakano's shoulder's and grinning.

"Sakano!" Shuichi exclaimed, ginning twice as brightly as K. "Geez, I owe you!"
"No," Sakano replied. "You don't…" He was blushing. He hadn't gotten that much attention since…ever.

"I mean it! I don't think I'd be here without you! God, thank you!!"

"Ahem," came a voice from the doorway. They turned to see the doctor--the same one as before--standing in the doorway.

"If you all don't mind," he said. "Shuichi needs his rest." Murmurings of "right" and "okay" and the likes went through the room. "So…if you could all….you know, shoo! And that does include you Mr. Yuki!" he added, seeing how Yuki was about to protest.

"I'll see you later Shu," Yuki said, leaning forward and kissing Shuichi on the cheek.

"Don't worry. He'll be outta here in a few days."
"That's good. Its too damn quiet without him."
"Yes, well, visiting hours are up. Shoo!" Slowly, everyone said their goodbyes and left. But, after Yuki, who was the last one to go, left, the door opened again. A misty-eyed Tohma came in, followed by Mika.

"Shuichi," he said, his voice breaking. "I'm so, so, so sorry."

"Oh, Tohma, it's okay," Shuichi replied.

"N-no it's not. I'm so…I feel so guilty…"

"It keeps him awake at night," Mika said.

"You're not helping," Tohma said bluntly.

"Well it's true!"

"Still. Shuichi, how can I…how can I repay you?"
"It's no problem. Its not like you're the one who did anything."
"But…" He turned to Mika. "Can you give us a minute?"

"Sure," she replied. Quickly, she turned and strode out of the room,. Seemingly glad to get out of the tense scene.

"Surely you remember…in those two weeks…," Tohma said awkwardly. Aha, that little detail…, Shuichi thought.

"I remember…," he replied. "And I forgive you. I know you weren't thinking clearly."
"But it's eating me alive! Isn't there anything--anything at all!!--that I can do?"

"No, Tohma, its okay. Its in the past, isn't it? What's done is done. All you can do is promise you wont do it again."
"I swear it on my very life, I wont do that again." Shuichi smiled.

"Good."
"So I'll see you at work then, eh?"
"Yeah."

"Well…see you." He turned and walked to the door, then stopped. "Yuki did score pretty well with you though, " he said, winking, before leaving. Shuichi smiled again, laying down. Finally, his ordeal was over. He could sleep easily at last! And best of all, he could be with Yuki! And he fell asleep with that smile still imprinted softly on his face, dreaming happily of Yuki…
