A/N: Hey everybody! First, we would like to thank everyone that reviewed last chapter! We know we haven't updated in a while so it was nice to see that people were still interested in this story! Second, we know that we changed some things around, but that was to help the story :) We hope you enjoy the new chapter!
As we walked through the entrance, I couldn't help but feel a little excited that we would finally be able to see James. I knew that I had been kind of difficult the past couple of days, but I was determined to stay strong from here on out. Not only for me, but for Logan and the guys.
I looked over at Logan at the sound of him calling my name.
"What's up Loges?" I asked as my mom and little sister went to talk to the receptionist at the front desk.
"What are you thinking about?" He asked, giving me a curious look.
"It's nothing." I assured him quickly. "But what about you? I noticed that you looked a little upset in the car but I didn't want to say anything in front Katie or my mom." I told him, reading him carefully to see if I could tell what was wrong.
"I just… What if there's something wrong with James? Both he and Carlos took the blunt of the impact, and you might not know alot about car crashes but I do. I know how much damage they can do. What if he doesn't remember us? Or he has brain damage? Or-"
"Logan!" I yelled, grabbing the attention of a few bystanders. "Sorry." I whispered to them before turning my attention back to Logan who looked like he was getting ready to have a panic attack.
"I'm sure James is fine. The doctor said that as long as James had a successful blood transfusion, everything would be fine. It wasn't anything serious so just calm down." I said, feeling relived when I saw him start to calm down.
"Ok, we're clear to see James. But she said only two people at a time, so I'll let you two see him first." My mom said when she made her way over to us. Logan and I both nodded our heads quickly, feeling very anxious to see him.
With each step we took towards James' hospital room, I couldn't help but ponder over Logan's words. I mean, he did know more about this stuff than I did. What if James really did suffer from some kind of brain damage? Or he didn't remember us? I knew that I wouldn't be able to take it if that was the case.
As soon as those thoughts entered my head, I quickly tried to get rid of them. Surely if something was wrong with James we would've been informed. Wouldn't we?
I felt a little bit of comfort at that thought, but I couldn't help but still worry a little.
We had finally made it to his room, and to say that Logan and I were nervous would be an understatement. The blinds to his room were all closed so we couldn't see inside. Logan and I both just stood there looking at each other, silently pleading the other to make the first move.
After a few seconds, I decided to take the lead. I gave Logan one last look before slowly turning the knob and opening the door.
We both slowly walked in, preparing ourselves for the worse, but we were slightly relieved when we saw James looking pretty healthy and normal minus a few cuts and bruises here and there. I thought that he would look over at us, but to my surprise, he just kept staring at the ceiling.
He finally looked towards us at the sound of my voice, I felt a small smile creep onto my face at the recognition in his eyes.
"Guys?" He questioned, relief etched in his voice.
"It's us." Logan said, making his way over to James with me not too far behind him.
"I'm so glad to see you guys! The doctors wouldn't tell me anything when I woke up so I just assumed that…" He trailed off. But he didn't need to finish the sentence because I already knew what he was going to say.
"We're okay James. We're right here." I said, giving him a comforting hug in the process, motioning for Logan to join us. We all sat like this for a couple of minutes before James finally broke both the hug and the silence.
"Where's Carlos?" He asked, looking around the room as if he was expecting Carlos to pop up any second.
I looked over at Logan, who was giving me a pleading look. I let out a heavy sigh, giving James a sympathetic look.
"James… Carlos is in a coma. He has a fifty percent chance of survival." I informed him, waiting for the inevitable panic attack. But to my suprise, it never came. I looked up at James and saw a blank expression on his face.
"You're… you're kidding right?" He asked, chuckling lightly. "Yeah that's it. You guys are just messing with me."
Logan and I shared a glance before looking back at James. Did he really think that we would joke about something like this?
"James, we aren't joking. Do you actually think that we would joke about something like this?" Logan asked, giving James an incredulous look.
He was getting ready to reply until we noticed Dr. Reynolds entering the room.
"Ah, nice to see that you're finally awake Mr. Diamond." He said in a cheerful voice, clearly oblivious to all the tension that was in the room.
"You can call me James." James said in a soft tone.
"Well James, from what we can tell the blood transfusion was a success. We'll have to run a couple more test just to be sure but then you'll be free to go home." The doctor informed him, although James looked like he could honestly care less. Which really worried me…
"Okay." James muttered, never once taking his eyes away from his hands that he had been wringing together ever since he found out that we really weren't joking about Carlos.
"Alright, I'll be back in a few minutes so that we can get you're test over with. They shouldn't take long so you can leave today." Dr. Reynolds said, finally catching on to the tension in the room before quickly leaving.
"Jay, it'll be okay. Carlos will be fine and-" I started, trying to reassure him but was cut off.
"I think it's best if you guys just wait outside. Like the doctor said, the test shouldn't take long so I should be done soon." He said, still not making eye contact with either of us.
Logan and I shared one last look before heading out of the room.
"We'll see you soon Jay." I said before I walked out the door, hoping to get some kind of response. But to my dismay, I got nothing.
I slowly closed the door to his room before letting out a sigh. I knew that James was upset about Carlos being hurt, but something told me that whatever was bothering him was a little bigger than that. And I was determined to find out what was going on in that mind of his.
Done! So, we're sorry if this chapter is kinda crappy. But this is just a setting up for what's to come! So although the chapter was kind of lame, what did you all think?! Do you think there is a bigger reason that James is upset? Please let us know in a review! And if we can get five or more reviews on this chapter, we'll upload the next chapter by Tuesday at the latest! ;) So please review (Again, even though this chapter was a little crappy)! Until next time!
