Blaine stood at the end of Kurt's hospital bed, looking over him. The Doctor said he'd be awake any minute and Blaine couldn't afford to miss it. As Blaine looked him over, he saw the cut on Kurt's lip, the bruise on his cheek, the bandage wrapped around his head. He bit his lip and thought back, it was all his fault.
Kurt smiled over at Blaine from the passenger seat,
"Hi sweetie," He smiled, leaning across the small space, Blaine smiled
"Hello," he teased, "It's awfully romantic out here, right in front of a dumpster." Kurt rolled his eyes
"How many times have I told you, it doesn't matter where I am with you...it's always romantic."
"And how many times do I have to tell you, I'm terrible at romance." Blaine said, tapping Kurt's nose with his index finger,
"You can say it all you want, I don't believe it." Kurt said and closed the distance between them, Blaine kept his eyes open for a moment longer than Kurt, and he saw it. He saw the bright light reflected in the rearview mirror, he scrambled to put his foot on the pedal but only managed to make Kurt pull away, giving him a confused look. He managed to throw his right arm out in front of Kurt before the truck ran into them, the impact sending Kurt flying forward, his head smacking the dashboard.
Blaine was snapped out of his memories by a small sound coming from in front of him. The Doctor moved at his side and went to stand next to Kurt, who opened his eyes and groaned a bit.
"Hey, Kurt, you're in the hospital, you were in a car accident-" the Doctor said
"Any pain?" Blaine asked instantly, Kurt looked at him for a second, then back to the doctor
"Just my head," he said softly, wincing, the Doctor smiled
"I'll get you some meds,"
"Was anyone else hurt?" Kurt said, and the Doctor looked to Blaine, and Kurt followed her gaze, his eyes flickering briefly to the cast on Blaine's arm.
"Uh...you- you know who I am, right?" Blaine asked, looking at Kurt
"yeah..." Kurt said, Blaine smiled
"You're my Doctor." Kurt said, and Blaine's world shattered.
"What?" he asked
"...your'e my doctor...right?" Kurt asked again, Blaine shook his head
"No, oh Kurt, no." Kurt frowned deeply
"Who are you?" he asked, Blaine held up his left hand and pointed to the ring
"I'm your husband." he said simply, Kurt sat for a moment, dumbstruck, before looking to his own hand. He gasped as he held it up.
"Oh my god." he said, tears quickly filling his eyes, "oh my god...no,no,no." He took the ring off like it had burnt him and set it on the table. Blaine turned and walked out of the room, the Doctor trailing behind.
"Go slowly," the Doctor recommended, "it'll take him time."
"What if he doesn't remember me?" Blaine asked "I'm his husband, what if he doesn't remember me?" Blaine was yelling, angry, hurt tears pouring down his face
"Then you do your best to make him comfortable." she said "and to help him because it's going to be really difficult." Blaine nodded and wiped at his face
"When..when can he come home?"
"I'd like to keep him overnight but you can take him in the morning."
"Okay...I'm...I'm gonna go home...give him time to process." the doctor nodded again
"That's probably a good idea."
Blaine caught a bus back to their loft that night. He took the small elevator up to the fourth floor and into their place. He sat on the couch and picked up the phone. It took him ten minutes to dial the numbers correctly with his shaking fingers. How the hell was he going to tell Burt? He hung up after the first ring. He wasn't going to tell Burt. Not right now. He had no idea if Kurt even remembered Burt, or if he had just forgotten everyone. A small sob escaped him and he curled up on the sofa, he couldn't bring himself to go back to their bed. Not without Kurt.
"Kurt...you've lost your memory." The Doctor said, "you were in a car crash and you hit your head on the dashboard."
"What happened to that guys arm?" Kurt asked,
"His name is Blaine," the doctor said "he threw his arm out in font of you before the crash, it got hit with the airbag and fractured his arm. Your injuries would have been a lot worse if he hadn't been holding you back." she looked at him pointedly as he struggled to keep his breathing under control.
"I...I don't remember him." Kurt said. "I'm sorry, I can't-"
"Hey, it's okay, we'll figure it out, is there anyone you do remember?" she asked "friends, family, pets?"
"My dad." Kurt said instantly and then frowned,
"Anyone else?" the Doctor asked, Kurt shook his head
"No." he said truthfully "just my dad." the Doctor nodded
"Alright." she said and wrote something down on a clipboard "why don't you try to rest, okay?" Kurt nodded and laid back down against the pillows, closing his eyes, and seeing bright hazel ones behind his lids.
Oh, this was going to be a long night.
Okay, I just needed to get this out of my brain. I have not seen The Vow (yet) which I think is a good thing because I want to let this story be it's own thing and not heavily influenced by the movie. I'm just...I'm terrible at planning stories ( I don't know why I let myself write) and I often want to have them end after a few chapters which sucks because I would love nothing more than to have full fledged into-the-teens-chaptered stories. So. If anyone would like to beta me and listen to me freaking out (and help me with random ideas and such) please, please PM me!
Reviews would be nice :)
