When Eddi woke up she felt peaceful, which was strange. She also felt very well rested which was something she hadn't felt in a while. As she led there, slowly all the memories of yesterday starting coming back to her, Oh Luc. Why is he so insistent on helping her? Eddi really wished he would just leave her alone.
As she sat up and looked around she realised she was still in his campervan, he really wasn't going to give up. As Eddi rolled out of bed, she groaned, her feeling of peacefulness suddenly vanishing; all too quickly for Eddi's likening. She felt like crap. Her stomach was cramping, and Eddi knew why now she was awake her withdrawal symptoms were really starting to hit her. She had a splitting headache as well which wasn't helping.
Giving in already Eddi started to madly search through all of Luc's belongings looking for a box of comoxidan, just one tablet would do. She told herself over and over, it was just for the pain, she wasn't addicted. Eddi was too distracted searching for some pills she didn't hear Luc come back in, he stopped and stared at her sadly as she rummaged through all of his things.
"Looking for these?" Luc asked her, holding up a pack of comoxidan. Eddi jumped when she heard him and spun round to face him, feeling even sicker.
"Please Luc," she begged, reaching for one.
"No Eddi, I'm trying to make you better. You can beat this I know you can." He told her.
"No I can't" she cried, dejected.
"Where's your old fighter spirit gone Eddi?" Luc asked
"It went when you did." She told him angrily.
Luc stood there stunned, not sure what to say. She was right of course but it still hurt to hear her say something like that. Luc quickly got a hold of his self and re-focused on helping Eddi.
"Can I have one? Just one?" Eddi asked him.
"Only if you promise to let me help you," Luc told her.
"I don't need your help," Eddi sighed collapsing down on a chair.
"Oh sweetheart, I think you do," Luc whispered kneeling in front of her.
Eddi shook her head, starting to cry she couldn't even look Luc in the eye. He put his hands on each of her cheeks and made her look him in the eye.
"Come on Eddi, you can do this." He told her, wiping away her tears, he then stood up and kissed her temple before grabbing her hands and dragging her back to his bed.
They both led down quietly, Eddi snuggling into Luc's side and crying in pain. Luc tried to not cry as he watched Eddi fall apart.
"Let me help you," he whispered into her ear.
After a while Eddi finally nodded, and gave Luc a watery smile when he kissed her forehead. Luc took the packet of comoxidan out of his top pocket and handed over one pill. Which Eddi took before lying back down with Luc and grabbing onto his hand tightly. Soon Eddi drifted to sleep, not letting go of Luc.
When Eddi woke up, there was light streaming through the window, and Luc was whistling whilst cooking. Eddi nearly laughed when she saw him. When Luc noticed her he turned round, and walked over to sit next to her.
"Are you hungry? It's nearly five we slept most of the day." He told her sheepishly.
"Mmm I'm starving." She told him. Getting up and walking to the table while Luc finished cooking, he made her French toast with bacon and sausages.
"This is a bit like breakfast" She told him as she ate.
"I know, sorry. It's just the first thing I thought to cook." He told her.
"That's alright," she told him.
"How are you feeling now?" Luc asked her.
"Better, how long will it last?" She asked quite desperately.
"I'm not sure, another couple of hours. Listen tonight I was thinking we should leave here and drive somewhere else, get you enrolled in a proper programme. What do you think?" Luc suggested.
"Umm Okay, I guess." Eddi answered nervously.
"It will be fine, I promise. They'll help you and I'll be with you every step of the way," He assured her.
"Urgh, that's a bit cheesy." Eddi laughed, "But thank you, I'll sort myself out I promise." She told him.
"I know you will, don't worry. I better start packing up then, you finish that." Luc said before heading outside to get everything.
A couple of hours later they were all packed up. Eddi sat in the front with Luc as he drove.
"Where are we going?" Eddi asked.
"Anywhere," Luc told her. "We can go anywhere."
"Let's just drive then." Eddi told him.
"Alright, we'll drive." Luc agreed.
And that's what they did, they drove and drove, didn't stop until morning. Because it didn't matter where they were as long as they were together, they could do anything! They were unstoppable. Having Love like theirs could get them through anything...
Which it did, it got them through a drug addiction, a handful of jobs each with their own stresses. It kept them together as they travelled halfway around the world and when they settled down into a flat, it got them through arguments, fights, 2 pregnancies and childbirths which were terrifying. It kept them sane as they got up at three every morning to feed a crying baby, kept them happy as they watched their children grow and become fantastic – both doctors of course. Their love got them through a battle with cancer and every other scare afterwards. Their love kept them together until one day when at 2.30 am their love finally failed, and after 50 long brilliant years they were finally separated by the only thing which could separate them; death.
So this was the last chapter, I hope you liked it. I didn't plan it to be the last chapter it just kind of happened :( I'll be posting lots more Leddi, don't you worry. Goodbye for now.
