Chapter 21 [Part 1]
As the days went by, Sage was by my side at the hospital and my injuries were healing. The doctor said I could discharge myself. This got me panicking. Now that I’m better Sage will leave me. I can’t allow that.
I had some cutlery in front of me. Sage went to the bathroom and there was no one in sight. This is my chance. I took the knife and was about to hurt myself with it but Sage walked in and realised what I was about to do.
“Li what do you think you’re doing?” Sage asked with a horrified look.
“Nothing,” I lied smoothly as I tried to hide the knife.
“That wasn’t nothing, you were going to hurt yourself again weren’t you?”
“Maybe,” I admitted.
“Because now that I’m better, you will leave me again,” I said sadly.
“No I won’t,”
“Yes you will,” I insisted.
“No I won’t,” Sage argued.
“Yeah but if you try to hurt yourself in anyway again, I will leave you and I will never come back no matter how bad you are hurt, understand?” Sage made clear and I immediately nodded my head in agreement.
“Good. Now, let’s get you home,” Sage said with a smile which I couldn’t help but return.
“What if I don’t want to go home?” I asked.
“You do want to go home,” Sage said firmly.
“No. I want to stay here,” I decided.
“Why?” Sage asked in confusion. “Why the hell would you want to stay here?
“We’re close here,”
“We can be closer at home,”
“No,” I refused.
“Yes. If we stay here we won’t be able to mate,”
“You’ll mate with me?” I asked in surprise.
“Yeah," Sage blushed.
“Even after everything I’ve done?” I asked with an eyebrow raised.
“Because I love you,”
“I love you too but how can you love me after everything I’ve done? I hurt you,”
“You’re my mate, I’ll always love you,”
“But-” I began to disagree. I can’t believe Sage still wants me after all I’ve done. I don’t deserve her but I will accept it.
“Li do you want me to mate with you or not?” Sage asked with an annoyed tone of voice.
“Yes,” I said and stood up.
“Then let’s go home,”
I kissed Sage’s cheek and followed her outside the hospital. We got into the car and Sage drove us home.
As soon as we got home. I picked my Sage up and carried her straight to our bed to mate. I can’t believe she’s my mate and now we are together again as we should be.
