Thanks to CaseyJr, haleydavisnaker, arubagirl0926, and mahsa for the great reviews!
Sorry that it has taken me so long to update! Life has been crazy!
So Brooke is seven months pregnant in this chapter!
I don't own anything!
"So, B. Davis, where would you like to go next?" Peyton asked as she pulled out of the drive way of Brooke's old house. Brooke's doctor had told her that she would need to go on bed rest in a few days so Peyton was taking her around Tree Hill.
"The River Court," Brooke said with a smile. It was a beautiful February day and the top of the Comet was down so she could feel the surprisingly warm sun on her face and the wind rush through her hair.
"The River Court it is,"
"Peyton! Peyton Peyton!" Brooke suddenly yelled with a smile on her face.
"What? What? What?" Peyton replied, mocking her best friend.
"It was a kick!" Brooke said grabbing her best friend's hand.
"Brooke, I'm driving," Peyton said with a giggle.
"You're at a red light." Brooke said smiling.
"Well, now it's green." Peyton said before putting both hands back on the wheel and driving forward.
Both of the girls were still laughing and neither of them saw the car to the right of them run the red light.
Within seconds the cars collided, the metal of the car was crushed like a piece of paper.
"Brooke? Brooke?" Peyton groggily asked. Her body ached all over and she could tell that she was probably bleeding and something was broken.
She looked over at Brooke, she wasn't moving.
"Brooke!" Peyton yelled as she gently shook her. "Come on, don't do this to me!"
"Help us!" She began to yell at the top of her lungs, hoping and praying that Brooke would be okay.
The next half hour was a blur. Peyton vaguely remembered calling 911 and a paramedic having to carry her from the car because she refused to leave Brooke. After that everything went black.
"Peyton!" She heard Lucas call as he ran across the emergency room.
"Hey, Luke," She replied with a quivering smile. She had a deep cut on her forehead that had required stitches and a broken arm, but the rest appeared to be just bumps and bruises.
"I'm so glad you're okay." He said softly as he held her close, careful of her new cast.
"They won't tell me anything about Brooke," Peyton said softly.
"I'm sure she's fine," Lucas said with a reassuring smile.
"She looked really bad, Luke," Peyton said as she looked up at him with tears running down her face.
"Shh, baby… It's okay," He said softly as he planted a gentle kiss on her forehead.
"Peyton!" Haley yelled as she walked up to them with Jamie on her hip and Nathan beside her. Karen was close behind them with Lilly in her arms.
"Thank god you're okay." Haley said as she gently squeezed her friend's hand. "How's Brooke?"
"I don't know. She was still in the car when they put me in the ambulance and when I woke up I was here and she was gone."
"And the doctors aren't telling you anything? Karen asked.
"No, they stitched me up and put my cast on and none of them seem to know anything about Brooke."
"Lucas, hold your sister," Karen said before she walked off in search of answers.
"Excuse me," Karen said as she walked up to a doctor.
"Ma'am, I'm kind of busy, I'm sure one of the nurses can help you," He said before beginning to walk off.
Karen ran after him.
"Do you know anything about Brooke Davis?"
"I'm on the way to her surgery right now," He replied.
"Surgery?" She asked.
"Oh, I'm sorry. Did no one tell you? Your daughter sustained severe internal damage as well as severe brain injuries. I'll have to take the babies out if they have any chance of survival. I promise I'll keep you posted." He said before walking off again.
"But she's not…" Karen said before walking back towards the group.
Several hours later they were all in the waiting room. Deb had come and taken Jamie and Lilly several hours ago. Karen was sitting beside Andy, who had since come. Haley and Nathan were sitting side by side, whispering. And Peyton and Lucas were sitting in the corner. Peyton had fallen asleep. She looked so peaceful, but she was a mess.
"Family of Brooke Davis," The same doctor that Karen had talked to earlier.
Karen, Andy, Haley, and Nathan stood up. Lucas hadn't seen the man.
"How is she? How are they?" Haley asked as she held Nathan's hand.
"The babies are fine. They're in the NICU now, they didn't sustain any trauma and they appear to be pretty healthy for preemies."
"And Brooke?" Haley asked.
"Her heart stopped during the operation. We were able to restart it, but her brain went several minutes without oxygen. Even if her injuries heal perfectly, there is a chance that she could never wake up.
Haley felt her heart begin to pound in her ears as she tried to make sense of what the doctor had just said. Nathan pulled her close and held her tightly.
Karen thanked the doctor and then shakily went to tell Lucas.
"How is she?" Lucas asked.
Karen gestured to her son's sleeping girlfriend.
"If it's bad news I don't wanna wake her," Lucas replied.
"Go ahead and wake her," Karen said softly.
A week later Karen sat in Brooke's hospital room.
"And so Andy asked me and Lilly to come with him around the world. And I said I would. But then I thought about the café. But then I had a great idea, what if I gave it to you and you used it for your store? You can have it, please just wake up. We all need you. And your babies are so beautiful and they need their mom. Brooke, please." She placed a kiss on Brooke's forehead before leaving the room.
Haley James Scott and Peyton Sawyer walked into Brooke's room, each holding their god child. It had been a month since the accident. The babies were well enough to go home, but Brooke still hadn't woken up. Peyton walked over to Brooke's bed while Haley put fresh flowers in the vase by the window.
"Hey, B. Davis," Peyton said as she went to her best friend's side. "The babies are perfectly healthy and they can go home now. It's okay, you can wake up now. Maybe you wanted to not wake up so you could stay at the hospital with them, but they're okay now. They need you to fight to wake up. I know it's scary and it might be painful, but we all need you. I need you. You're my best friend, we've been through so much. I can't lose you now. I love you, Brooke Penelope Davis. Can you please just wake up soon?" Peyton asked tearfully as she held Brooke's limp hand in hers.
"We're ready to go," Lucas said from the doorway.
"Okay," Peyton said softly, "Don't worry, we'll take care of them, you just worry about getting better." She squeezed her best friend's hand before walking to where her boyfriend was standing.
"Hales?" Lucas looked up at Haley, who was now staring out of the window.
"I'll be there in a minute," She said with a smile before shifting the sleeping baby in her arms.
"Hey, Tigger. After my accident I could hear all of you, so I hope you can hear me. I know how hard it is to wake up and it's going hurt like hell when you do, but it will be worth it. And you'll get to see C.J. and Isabelle's beautiful faces. They are so much like you. And they would be so proud of you. Karen left with Andy, the Café is waiting for you. We're all waiting for you." Haley said with a smile before leaving.
Lucas Scott sat at Brooke Davis's bedside. It had been a week since her children had been released from the hospital.
"Did I tell you that Peyton got offered an internship at a record company in LA? The one that she used to work for offered her the one she left. I'd miss her like crazy, but she refuses to go. She won't tell me why, but I know why. You. She misses you so much, more than any of us. She's trying to be strong, but she cries every single night. She thinks I'm asleep, but I always tighten my hold on her. This is killing her, Brooke. I need you to wake up for her." Lucas said before closing his eyes and listening to the machines.
Then he heard it. "Peyton should go to LA." Brooke said sleepily. He watched her wince as she opened her eyes.
"Hey, Pretty Girl," Lucas said with a smile.
"Hey, Broody," She said as she tried to sit up. "Can I see your phone?"
"I need to tell your girlfriend to get her boney ass down her then straight to LA."
Lucas laughed as he handed her the phone.
"Hey," Brooke looked up at Peyton who was standing in the doorway. "Nathan and Haley are bringing C.J. and Isabelle up."
"Come here, P. Sawyer," Brooke said patting the bed beside her. It was now empty because Lucas had gone to get Karen from the airport, she had insisted on coming back. Brooke could tell that Peyton was a mess. She was wearing one of Lucas's T-Shirts and a pair of sweats. Her dirty blonde hair was tied up in a sloppy bun. There were dark circles under Peyton's eyes.
She pulled her best friend into a hug and exclaimed, "I'm the one who was in a coma and you need consoling."
"I missed you, B. Davis." Peyton said with a smile.
"I'm back now and I'm not going anywhere."
"Brooke, I want you to meet the cutest twins on the planet." Haley said with a smile as she walked in with both baby carriers. Nathan had Jamie in his arms.
"They're beautiful." Brooke said breathlessly.
She watched in awe as Haley and Peyton took them out and gave them to her to hold.
"I'm a Mommy," She said softly as she looked up at her friends, joyful tears streaming down her beaming face.
