|lady_destiny||01:51 am - At the hospital...|
Cordi, Giles and I run in the hospital carrying Willow *now clothed for the most part* in the blanket.
"SOMEONE HELP US PLEASE!!!" I cry out.
A doctor rushed over, "What is the...OH GOD" he said when his eyes met Willow's body. "Get a team on this girl...FAST" he said yelling at so nurses.
A team of doctors and nurses came up with a bed and placed Willow carefully on it. The doctor looked at us as they took Willow down the hall, "How did this happen?"
I look at Giles, "She...she was kiddnaped...ummm...she was brought to us like that," I say hoping he doesn't ask to much more.
He nods, "Any of you family?" Before anyone could say anything, "He...he is her fiancé. He is the only family she has, " I say pointing to Giles.
The doctor turns to him, "Okay I have some paper work I need you to fill out as best as you can...and when she is stable you can see her. I will arrange a bed for you as well if you want to stay with her. I'm sorry you two but only family can stay with her."
"We understand..." I say and smile at Giles. at least he gets to be by her side
Current Mood: scared
"Yes..I understand" I take the paperwork and walk with Hillary." I hadnt asked her to marry me yet.How did you know?"
I look at Giles my eyes wide shocked, "You mean...oh Giles I didn't know. I said it because I know out of all of us she would want you by her side. Her family wont come, your like family to her already. She needs someone in there with her. I just thought you would want it to be you."
"Oh no..its ok.I was planning on doing ti when she got back but now um..I cant..not for a while.God..Buffy.I just feel so bad for them both.Her husband doing this to her best friend..awful"
I nod, "Yeah...Buffy must be going threw hell now. I just hope...Will...that she..." I could say it. I couldn't think of Willow dying.
I smile at Giles trying to lift the sad mood I had created, "You...you were really going to ask her. You must really love her."
"Somethings wrong with Buffy..I I cant sense her anymore.As her watcher..I can sense her..I cant sense her."It hit me suddenly..They have gotten Buffy into her vampire form to kill..great.
Fears, doubts, and death...
"Do...do you need to go to her?" I ask.
He had never answered me about loving Willow. Does he love her that way? He hasn't even cried yet knowing Willow might be fighting for her life now. How would he react if Willow did in fact die tonight? Is he worried about that? That he may never be with the woman he says he loves?
I try to brush aside my questions. I shouldn't be thinking this but Willow is infact my friend, and I knew how she felt about him. Even before they were together she had hinted about a older man she loved that was untouchable...until recently.
"No...he had to love her...it must be the shock...he is trying to excape threw something else. He has to keep his head...that is why he hasn't cried...why he isn't pacing the room like you are now. He has to try to keep his head. That must be it...it must be..." my mind says as I push away the questions I had no business thinking right now.
I stop pacing as Spike ran into the waiting room. I could see tears in his eyes as he came up to us. He looked at everyone of us.
"She's dead..." he says crying, "Buffy...Buffy is gone. Dru killed her...there was nothing...nothing I could do."
He went to Cordi wrapping his arms around her. I look at Giles in shock, "Oh Gods...no."
lazniess is taking over.,..Giles
"B..B..B..Buffy's dead?How?Why?Could you clarify all this for me please? Where is she??" I rub my eyes.The love of my life could die and now..The girl whose like my daughter is dead..and she was pregnant..
Re: lazniess is taking over.,..Giles
I tried to calm down still holding on to Cordi, "We went to look for Angelus and Dru. Well we found Dru. Buffy triped...Dru got a hold of Buffy...she stabbed Buffy...killing her. She...she is at my crypt, it was the safest place I know of. I didn't want to bring her back here, there might still be hope to bring her back."
I look at Hillary, "There is isn't there..there is a way to bring her back"
Hillary just stands there in shock.
Hillary and Giles arrive back at the hospital, and go to Willow's room. "Excuse me...only family after hours," calls out the nurse at the nurses station.
Hillary stops, "You go be with her...I'll stay out here. Tell me if there is any change."
Nurse turns to him, "and you are???"
"Her fiance..The doctor has a bed for me in there with her." I look at her with pleading eyes "M'am please..my friend just died and my fiance is in a coma..have a heart." I wanted to scream at her
The nurse looks at Giles then at me, "I could lose my job..." She sighs, "Make sure she isn't seen okay," she says softly.
"thank you," Hillary whispers and they go into Willow's room.
Hillary goes to Willow's side. "There seems to be no change..."
I finally bring myself to look at Willow. I touch her face sofly. "Willow..please wake up..I love you..I need you.I want to marry you..See" I reach in my pocket and take out a ring. "I wish you could see it.."
I look at Giles. "This must be killing him to see her like this"
Looks at Willow, "Come on Willow...wake up honey...please...I know you have it in you...I know it"
Looks back at Giles, "I can take the first round if you want...get some rest."
"No..thats quite alright.." I take a chiar and bring it next to her "Mum hasnt called my house..Answering machine..Carribean is lovely..She says she misses you more than she misses me.." I smiled adn looked smug "She really likes you..adn so do I"
I sit on the bed and watch as Giles talks to Willow, "He does love her," I think.
"Come on Will...I know you can do it...wake up...wake up...look at him...please...look at him," I think as I lay down.
"Maybe she is worn out from the spell. Keep talking to her...I know she can hear you...she heard me before."
I had already closed my eyes and dozed off without meaning to. My hand held hers , my head rested on her bed and I snored quietly.
�then lets try� I move to the end of Willows bed, "Willow wrote a healing spell. I think we should use that."
I open my arms, "Mrs. Giles, Rupert, take one of my hands and one of Willow's hands. We are going to need all the energy we can get."
I close my eyes trying to remember the spell. "Oh Great Goddess Isis...I in invoke thee. She who brought back thy husband Osiris back from the underworld...she who has the great healing power. I invoke thee."
I look at Willow's body before me, and direct all the energy the three of us had into her body.
"Oh great Isis please hear me. Send thy healing power down to me. Help me heal my friend. That her pain and suffering will finely end. Make her body whole again. From head to toe let this healing healing began. Help me set her free. As I will it, so mote it be."
I stand and look down at Willow and wait...for something...anything.
"Rupert...talk to her...let her hear your voice. Let her know you're here"
"Willow..we..we tried to save you.Please..wake up..Please.."
I can here you my love...I can hear you. I want to wake up. I do. My mind screams this as he talks to me. Fighting to show him I can hear him. To let him know what ever they did worked.
Hillary sighs and lets go of Mrs. Giles, and Rupert's hands. “It should of worked...I’m sorry Rupert.” she says.
No...No...I am here. I can hear you...I can hear you. Please...Goddess please let me show them I can hear them. That I am here...
Slowly my fingers move in his hand.
"Willow..squeeze my hand if you can hear me."
I can hear you...Oh Rupert...I can hear you. I try once more to focus on his hand in mine.
Gives Giles hand a small and weak squeeze.
"Mum,Hillary, is there a way you could communicate with her telepathically?"
I look at Giles, "Has something happened?" I go over to his side and look at Willow with hope in my eyes.
"She squeezed my hand..I know shes there..see if you can try adn tlak to her telepahtically"
