I shifted back into my human form and ran to Aiden. but with every step I ran, the aching in my chest grew little by little before it caused me to drop to my knees gasping for air.
I heard light footsteps indicating that Aiden was walking towards me. I looked up only to jump back in slight shock because he was suddenly standing so close to me.
"Aiden please come back to me, I love you baby, please!" my voice croaked out.
"I am trying. I just need you to know that if I don't make it back, I am not in pain here. Also, I love you so much Cole, so much." he whispered the last part as I felt a featherlight sensation on my lips before it and my mate was gone.
I don't know how long I sat there for, maybe minutes or hours, but I sat there staring at nothing.
I am nothing without Aiden. my wolf will loose power and strength, so will I until we get do bad that life just slips through our hands and we die.
If Aiden doesn't come back, death will be invited. A life without my mate is a life I do not want to live.
After a while I felt a hand grasp my shoulder,
"Aiden?!" I said hopefully, only to turn around an have disappointment sink in, it was Andy.
"You might want to get back to the hospital the nurse said that they were close to bringing him back." I jumped up before shifting then bolting off as fast as I could to the hospital.
When I got there, Andy was not far behind. he shifted and pulled out clothes from a bag behind a tree.
"I kinda figured you would need these." he says as he tossed me the bag.
I changed quickly before running into the building and into my mates room. When I got there I heard the steady beat of the heart monitor and I let out a cry of joy. A few tears escaped my eyes knowing that my true love is going to be okay.
The next two weeks were much like the first three, I sat by my mate and guarded his room.
The horrifying part was that he flatlined twice, both times they were barely able to resuscitate him. I cried into my mom whenever it happened.
I held his cold, small hand in my large warm ones. Every once in a while I would bring the back of his hand to my lips and gave it a kiss.
Suddenly his hand twitched in mine. I about jumped out of my chair.
"Aiden can you move your hand again for me?" I asked desperately. It moved again only this time he wrapped his hand around mine.
Next, the most amazing thing happened, I looked up to see his bright sky blue eyes staring at me. I jumped up and an to get the doctors.
"He's awake! He's awake!" I yelled causing nurse and doctors to come running towards the room, pushing me out and closing the door.
I growled loudly and was about to burst through the door when a voice behind me rang out.
"They are just trying to help him." A deep familiar voice called
"Dad?" I asked
He came up and hugged me.
"I'm glad that everything is okay." he said
"Well, not everything." another voice stated hesitantly from behind us.
"What do you mean?" I asked worriedly
"Aiden hit his head pretty hard in the crash, he has amnesia. We are going to check again for a bleed in his brain just to be safe." the doctor said and my world crumble down again.
"Can I see him now?" I asked and the doctor nodded as all the staff left the room.
"I'll be out here if you need me." my dad stated before sitting in a hard plastic chair.
I walked in the room nervously. Aiden was laying with his eyes closed in his bed. I stood frozen, just beyond the door way. 'Will he remember me?' I thought to myself
Suddenly, I felt a a big shove. I was thrusted forward onto the cold floor. I snapped my head back to see Aiden's mom, and dad rush into the room and go straight to Aiden's bed.
Slowly, Aiden's eyes opened. he screamed loudly.
"Who are you people?!?" he screeched
"It's me, your mother, and this is your father." his mom said with tears in her eyes.
"Stop lying, I've never seen you before! Who are you?" he yelled again this time with tears streaming down his face. I quickly got to my feet, drawing his attention.
"Cole!" he yelled and I ran to his side.
Aiden wrapped his arms around my neck.
"Make them go please!" he said causing his mother to fill with rage.
"He is the one who put you in here and he is the reason why you can't remember your own family." She yelled grabbing his arm yanking him away from me.
"Stop! Stop! Stop!" my mate screamed causing doctors and nurses to run in.
"Ma'am please let go of him. if he doesn't remember you can't make him." the doctor said sternly.
"But he is my baby!" she screamed
Her husband drug her out of the room.
"Sh baby, it's okay, I've got you." I promised my still sobbing mate while holding him tightly in my arms.
"I want to go home." Aiden said quietly, his face still nuzzled in my chest.
"We can go home soon. I love you Aiden."
"I love you too."
