Chapter 15 [Part 2]
A few days later
I got a call from the mechanic telling me to come to the garage because the new handbrake had arrived. I said goodbye to Sage and drove to the garage.
When I arrived there, Len had already fitted in the new handbrake, all I had to do was pay and head back home.
There was a lot of traffic and the cars didn’t seem to be moving so I pulled into a side road. I kept driving and soon came up to some shops.
I spotted an ice-cream shop, Sage loves ice-cream so I decided to have a look and ended up buying a few boxes of different flavoured ice-cream, Sage will be pleased.
As I walked out of the shop, I saw a girl walk in. She looked familiar but I couldn’t remember where I’d seen her. Wait a minute........ She’s the girl that was convinced she was my mate a few days ago.
I just ignored her and continued walking but she followed me but then I stopped and so did she.
“Why are you following me?” I asked.
“I want to talk to you,” she said, this girl isn’t going to give up is she?
“What’s your name?” I asked with a sigh.
“My name is Sara, what’s your name? Sara asked.
“Li, my name’s Li,”
“Li you know we’re mates so we should be together,” Sara suggested. Ugh! Why hasn’t she got the message that I don’t want her? Why has she even come into my life? I’m happy with Sage as my mate and will never want anyone else.
“So drop her,”
“I can’t do that, I love my wife,” I disagreed.
“But I love you,” Sara said. “I’m your mate,”
“I’m sorry but we can’t be together. I won’t leave my wife for you,” I said and as I did Sara was stepping backwards to get away from me as tears grew in her eyes.
“But I’m your mate, if you’re not accepting me then what am I supposed to do? I won’t be able to live without you,” Sara came to a sad realisation.
“You will live without me like you did before we met,”
“I can’t live like that again now that I’ve met you, you have to accept me. Accept me now and I’ll forgive you for rejecting me before,” Sara promised.
“I can’t,” I still refused. I’m happy with Sage. I don’t want Sara.
“Please,” Sara pleaded sadly.
“I’m sorry I just can’t,” I apologised.
“Please, I’ll do anything. Just don’t reject me again, please,” Sara begged and by now she was on her knees in front of me and was holding my leg. People were staring.
“Don’t do this. Stand up, you’re only gonna embarrass yourself,” I said then took her Sara’s hand to get her on her feet. She stood up and wouldn’t let go of my hand.
“But you must feel the sparks,” Sara said.
“I don’t,” I lied. I could feel sparks everywhere but I was trying to ignore them.
“I can tell you’re lying, I’m your mate,”
“I’m not lying now please let go of my hand, ” I tried to get my hand away but Sara held on tight.
“Please,” I said but Sara didn’t listen so I took her hand away from mine harshly, it was the only way.
“I don’t understand. I’m your mate you’re supposed to want me not her,” Sara looked confused.
“It’s easy to understand. I love her, she’s mine, we’re fully mated,” I explained and as I spoke, I saw Sara’s face fall then she took a step back which was onto the road, I saw a truck come fast behind her.
“Sara look out,” I shouted and was about to run to her but I was too late, the truck had crashed into her and she went flying across the road. The truck finally stopped, all the traffic stopped and everyone got out of their vehicles to see what all the commotion was about.
I ran over to Sara, she had hit her head pretty bad, there was blood everywhere. I checked her pulse, it was weak but she was still breathing. I took my phone out of my jeans pocket and called an ambulance.
This is all my fault, I shouldn’t have been so mean to Sara and shouldn’t have rejected her. I knew she was right, she was my true mate but I love Sage so what else was I supposed to have done? I didn’t do anything, just stood by Sara and waited for the ambulance to arrive.
10 minutes later, the ambulance arrived. Once Sara was inside, I got in the ambulance too, I had to go to the hospital with her. I couldn’t let her go to the hospital alone.
We arrived at the hospital 15 minutes later and Sara was rushed into theatre for emergency surgery, I guess she is human. I had to wait in the visitor area. My mind was all over the place. How could I have done that? Sara wouldn’t be in this situation if it wasn’t for me. I am ashamed for my actions and wish I could go back and do things differently but I can’t.
It’s been a while now I should call Sage before she begins to get worried. I took my phone out of my pocket and called her.
“Li where are you? I thought you’d be back by now, are you ok?” Sage asked worriedly.
“No I’m not ok, I need you” I admitted and then told her everything.
“Which hospital are you in?” I asked after Li told me everything. He finally has found his mate. I don’t know what to think but it may allow me to be with my mate if Li accepts her.
“City Hospital,” Li replied.
“Ok I’m on my way,”
“You’re coming here,” Li asked happily. How can he be happy when his mate is hurt?”
“Of course you need me, I’ll be there in a bit,” I promised.
“Ok hurry, I love you,” Li said and then I hung up. He shouldn’t be saying he loves me when he has met his mate. He should love her now.
I rushed to grab my jacket and put it on then left the house.
When I arrived at the city hospital, I used my phone to call Li and find out where he was.
“I’m here, where are you?” I greeted Li when he answered the call.
“Where are you?” Li repeated my question.
“I’m by the entrance,”
“Wait there, I’ll come to you,” was all Li said and hung up. I put my phone in my jacket pocket and waited for Li.
This situation was heart breaking but at the same time I had hope, this accident has hopefully made Li see sense. If Sara makes it through this accident then Jaime and I can finally be together but if she doesn’t make it then I know Li will never let me go.
It was still the morning, it was only 10.30am, I had only waited 2 minutes but I suddenly had the urge to vomit and ran into the toilets to puke. When I was done I heard a bang, it was Li. He had nearly broken the door down in panic.
“Sage what’s wrong, are you sick?” Li asked when he saw the sick in the toilet.
“I’m fine,” I said but then everything went black.
