Chapter 20

[ Lea Michele - Run to you ]


May 18TH

It's been three weeks since Adrienne coma. I wait every day hoping that she will wake up really soon. "Hello Laila." I greet her mom and hug her briefly. "You looks tired, have a seat.  Do You want anything? Coffee?" I asks and she just shake her head no.

"No thanks Joel. You here since the first day until now. You must love Adrienne so much don't you." She said and done take my seat next to her.

"Yes, I do love her with all my heart.. I will wait for her to wake up because I know she will. She's a strong girl." I said. "Can I go inside to see her or maybe you want to go first?" I asks.

"No no you can go first. I'm going to rest here for a bit." I nodded my head and get inside of her room.

"Hey Adrienne." I said and take a seat next to her bed. "Do you want to know something? Zach's birthday yesterday and all of us were there except you. Even though we laughed and all, but I just can't stop thinking about you at the hospital." I said holding her hand. "He told me that he misses you , not only him but everyone misses you especially me. When you wake up, I will asks you to be my girlfriend and even though you might reject me again, I still gonna act like you're not." I said and chuckles a bit. "Look at you... Look at that, you're becomes more and more beautiful every day. How can I stop loving you." My lips curve up into a smile.

After I feel it's been so long talking to her, I decided to go out for a bit and let her parents see her too. When I open the door, I can see the boys and Hillary and Cherry sitting at the chairs. "Hey guys. When did you guys arrived?" I asks.

"We just arrived. You look much better than before, Joel." Hillary said and I just smile at her. I can see that she and Zach are finally together.

"So you and Zach now huh?" I tease looking at their entwined fingers. When they realize it, they immediately take each other's hands. I chuckles. "It's so obvious. Don't worry I will ship you guys." I said and take a sit on one of the chairs too.

"Aren't they cute?" Isaac said and Zach looks like he's ready to hide himself out of embarrassment.

"Okay guys that's enough. Don't need to tease us like that." Zach said.

"When did this happened? Yesterday?" I asks and he nodded his head. "You guys make a good couple." I said and Hillary smile. "Oh umm where's Peter and Laila?" I asks them about Adrienne's parents.

"Oh Peter said he need to settle some works. Laila her boss called earlier asks her to be at the office. So basically both of them need to finish their work and we're all gonna take their place and take care of Adrienne here." Hayes said and I nodded my head understand.

"Well if that so, I'm going in then. You guys wanna go in too?" I asks before walk into the room.

"We're good here. You need more time to spend with her I guess." Hayes said.

"Whatever." I answer and walk in the room. "Hey Adrienne it's me again. Your parents have to finish their works at the office so I'm going to look after you then. I take seat and talk to her because I believe that she can hear me even though she can't response to my words.



My eyes still remain still at the sight of her, watching as the nurses take the report of her condition time to time. "It's a miracle. He's getting better and better, Mr. Nelson." The doctor said to Peter and that cause him to smile widely. You hear that Adrienne? The doctor said you're getting better and better. I know you can do it. Keep it up. "But can we talk for a minute in my room?" The doctor said and done kind of curious about it but just let it out.

"You can stay here for a while right?" I nodded my head and all of them walk out leaving me alone with Adrienne.

My eyes wander around the room to see a large amount of flowers being placed near the windows. It's all from Hillary,Cherry, the boys and also her parents. "By the way... I have one song for you," I reach out my phone in my pocket as I press play and kind of raise the volume a bit louder. "I don't know what's your favorite song but I like this song. It's a little bit slow and I know you will love it.." I said as the song start to play. "It's a song from one of your favorite YouTubers, Jess and Gabriel conte, called Greater. It's so lovely." I smile as the song playing.

It doesn't take me long to just sit close to her as we both listen to the same music, knowing that she's probably enjoying it too. "I love you, Adrienne." I whisper near her ear and keep playing the song.



Ever since she was confirmed to be in a coma, I never spent a day without visiting her here at the hospital and sometimes spend the night here. Even though we all didn't know when she will wake up, but talking to her every single day makes me feel she's so close to me.

A month has passed and she still laying here with all wires around her body. There's no signs of her to wake up at all which worries me. It's become a habit when I want to go and visit her, I will bring a daisies and also a new songs for her to hear.



"Do you know when the last time we actually talk to each other?" I asks her. "I can't remember it too." I let a moment of silence pass for a few seconds before let out a soft chuckles. "The graduation day is on November 2nd. Means, it's about five more months.  Tomorrow will be the July 1st which means only you only have four months to sleep and then you have to wake up. You don't want to miss the graduation say right?" I said to her.

I talk to her until her dad came in. "It's late Joel, you should go home and take a rest. You have school tomorrow." He said and that's true. I've been here since after school but still don't feel enough with her.

"Alright then, I will go home now. See you tomorrow Adrienne and see you tomorrow too Peter." He hug me before I walk out from the room. I walk to the lift even though my feet are so heavy to leave Adrienne but I need too. I go to my car and drive away.



"Hey Joel." Cherry says, which causes me to turn towards her before seeing her nearing me. "You didn't have any class right now?" She asks.

"It's in five minutes." I said.

"What are you doing here? You should get to class now or you might be late." She said.

"I just need to clear my mind here. What about you? Why you here?"

"I'm going to my class then I saw you here. So I just decided to see how you're doing with the current situation." She said and I nodded my head, "you're okay right?"

"You look at me and tell me how I'm doing?" She breathes out, sighing deeply before looking away.

"I'm sorry, Joel. I just be a concern friends for you. We all worried you might get sick if you keep acting like this."

"Well thank you for being concerned but I can't act like I used too because the girl that I love still didn't wake up from a coma and who knows the deceased still in her body even though they did the surgery on her." I reply. "I will meet you all at the hospital then." I said before walking down the hall, sighing...

After school, I didn't go straight to the hospital. I stop to buy daisies before go there. Just then, my phone buzzing in my pocket. I give the flowers to the florist and take out my phone to look who it is. It's Hayes. I answer it. "Joel! Where are you?" He asks in a rush.

"What's wrong? I'm buying the flowers for Adrienne." I reply while giving the money before take the flowers with me.

"It's Adrienne." Just like that, I immediately run to my car and drive as fast as I can. My heart continues to beat fast, worried and mostly scared of what happening. I should asks Hayes what's wrong but I can't thinking straight right now. After arriving at the hospital, my legs won't stop and I run through the hallway.  I keep running until I arrived at intensive care unit, where Adrienne is.

Within seconds, I'm already standing in her room and every one was here too.
