Callie drops on her knees beside her lover and gently strokes her neck feeling for a pulse.
"Ari, Arizona can you hear me" she feels a pulse.
Arizona was sure she heard a scream but wasn't sure if it was a dream but then she hears her beautiful voice and slowly opens her good eye.
"Oh my god baby" Callie says, she doesn't know where to touch her as she is so badly hurt.
"Callie, are you really here, you found me" Arizona whispers with a hoarse voice.
Callie can see the blood in her mouth. Mark kneels down too and places his hands on the wound but Arizona flinches away from him and Callie can see the fear in her eyes.
"Its just me Blondie, its just me" Arizona starts to cry again and Callie's heart breaks.
"He hurt me so bad Callie" Mark and Callie exchange a look, they were both thinking the same thing, her clothes were torn off her body and she had restraining bruises on her wrists. Callie stroked her cheek whilst she too sobbed.
"It hurt so bad Callie, I tried to stop him" Callie couldn't believe that after all these horrific injuries she was also raped.
"Callie, I want you to know that I love you, I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you" Arizona said then started to cough again and Callie could see the blood in her mouth again.
"Don't you dare do that, don't you dare say your goodbyes, please baby, I cant loose anyone else please" Even Mark was crying now as he applied more pressure to the wound.
Before they knew it the paramedics had arrived, Callie filled then in on as much info as she could. Mark called ahead and filled in Derek who had made sure they were all waiting for her to arrive.
The paramedics loaded her on to a gurney and asked Callie to move aside but the look Callie gave them made them realise that she wasn't going anywhere. They made it to the ambulance.
"Callie please don't leave me"
"Am right here baby, I'm right here," Callie said as her heart broke over her tiny fragile voice.
The ride to Seattle grace was quick and Callie could see their friend's worried faces as the doors opened. As they took her out the ambulance the paramedics ran through her injuries. Webber asked Callie to stand back twice.
"She has been on her own like this for god knows how long THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL IM BACKING OFF NOW" Callie shouted and Webber just nodded as sad nod.
Bailey stroked Arizona's head and Arizona just looked at her with tired eyes.
"Were all here honey, don't you worry, your safe now and were all going to look after you" Arizona gave a small weak smile and then the worst thing happened.
"Lost the heart beat, get the paddles charge d to 200" Webber ordered and Callie had to let go as they rushed her into the exam room. Callie watched her lifeless hand drop down limp. Mark put his hands on her shoulder and guided her into the room.
"Come on Callie" They entered the room just in time to see Arizona's body jerk with the electric charge.
"No change" Alex came in and looked at his mentor and friend.
"Jesus" he said and put his hand over his mouth.
"What the hell happened to her"?
"Charge to 250, clear" Webber yelled and Arizona jerked again and Callie put her head in her hands. Everyone held their breaths and looked at the monitor.
The sound of the monitor beeping was the best thing Callie had ever heard.
"We got a rhythm, she's back"
"We don't know" Callie's guilt was immense. Derek was examining the head wound, bailey was looking at her stomach and everyone else was covering her other injuries.
"Mark I need my phone, I need to call her parent" Callie said without taking her eyes off her girlfriend.
"I'll go get it and be back in 5 minutes" he left quickly.
"We have brain swelling here chief" Sheppard said.
"I need to repair this stomach wound" Bailey said, Webber put his hands up.
"Okay, lets get a head CT, Full body can, x-rays everything people, she's one of our family and she's been through hell, lets do our job as best we can" Bailey looked at Callie who was close to breaking point.
"Callie, she's in the best hands possible"
"Bailey I need you to, I think that" Bailed looked confused at her
"We found her with her clothes ripped off her, she had been on the bed and her wrist have bruises on like she has been held down, I need you to do a rape kit" Everyone stopped and looked at Callie, then to Arizona. Alex looked sick, he thought of Arizona as a sister and the thought of her being hurt like that made him want to kill someone. Bailey couldn't help the tears that fell but she wiped them away quickly.
"Ok, Ok I will take care of it"
They wheeled her out of the ct room. Alex came over to Callie with some scrubs.
"What are those for, they wont let me in the O.R" Alex looked as heartbroken as her.
"Its, its for you to change" Callie looked down at herself to see Arizona's blood all over her clothes. She started to cry and crumpled to the floor.
Alex wasn't good in these situations and just knelt down and placed his arms around her.
"She's like a sister to me," he said and Callie knew that he meant it. Mark returned a few minutes later and helped Callie in to the on call room. He stripped off her clothes for her and dressed her into the scrubs then tied her hair back. Callie thanked him and took the phone from him. She could see that she had a voice mail, she played it and realised it was from Arizona from last night.
"Callie help me"
"Oh my god" Callie said and burst into tears
"What, what is it" Mark said grabbing her shoulders.
"She called me last night didn't she when we were watching that phone and I ignored the call, she was calling me for help" Callie said and played the message again for him to hear. The time of call was 7.47pm
"Mark, she'd been there all evening, night and morning alone, scarred maybe dying and I turned my fucking phone off" Mark held her as the tears and sobs wracked her body.
Derek, Webber, Meredith and Christina were looking at her head scan when Callie came in looking exhausted.
"Well, she has a fractured skull, but what's concerning me is there seems to be a splinter of bone that is making her brain bleed, I will have to go in and take it out, my concern is her developing a clot here" he said as he pointed to the area. Callie breathed deeply.
"Will she have any brain damage"?
"Honestly, I don't know, she's had a serious maybe two blows to the head and her brain is bruised and swollen, we are going to have to operate together, me and bailey as I don't think her boy could take the stress of too many operations."
Webber stepped forward.
"She has a broken wrist, two broken ribs, a severe concussion, large laceration on her temple, broken knuckle, looks like she put up a hell of a fight" Callie smiled a little at that.
Bailey joined them in the room filled with Arizona's friends who were all waiting to hear the results.
"As far as I can tell she wasn't raped, there is a lot of bruising around the legs so I think he was obviously going to but she must have fought like hell" They all let out a sigh of relief
"Thank god" Callie said
"Prepare her for surgery"
Callie went to the viewing lounge to watch her soul mate be cut open and repaired. Alex was in surgery on the little girl, Mark was in on Arizona's surgery minimizing the scars on her face, Meredith was in with bailey and Webber and Derek were all in the theatre too. So Callie sat alone. Christina came in and sat next to her. In a very uncharacteristic move, she took Callie's hand.
"I'm here if you need me, you're my 2nd person" Callie was touched as yang didn't do feelings. Alex came in after a bit then Lexi.
"Thanks guys" she said to them all in the room and in the theatre.
The operation went without a hitch. Bailey managed to heal her wound, her wrists was reset and casted up. Derek managed to retrieve the splinter and stop the brain bleed. Mark stitched up her head wound so she would have a minimal scar. Now all that was left was to wait for her to wake up which Sheppard said would be in a couple of days.
Callie stood outside Arizona's room and dialled the number and took a deep breathe for the following conversation.
"Daniel, hi its Callie"
"Oh hello Callie, is everything ok, you sound upset" Callie started to cry.
"Daniel, Arizona has been hurt, I think it would be best if you and Mary came to the hospital"
"Hurt, how bad is it what happened" Callie cried harder
"She was attacked in her apartment, she's been stabbed and beaten pretty badly"
"Oh my god"
"But they have just finished surgery on her, she is going to be fine, but you need to be here"
"Thank you Callie, we will be on the next flight, look after her for us"
He hung up the phone and went to tell his wife the bad news.
