"Tell me everything! I want all the details, do not skip a second!!"

Jeff was speeding now, I could almost see his heart beating through his chest, I knew how it felt because it was beating in mine.

"He was driving back to the hotel, he wanted to come say he forgives you and that he's sorry for freaking out, because he would have done the same thing if he was in your position."

"So it's my fault? I don't understand."

"Just shut up for a minute and let me finish."


"Anyways like I was saying, he passed by your room and you weren't there, he called me and asked if I knew where you were and I didn't, I told him to ask some of the wrestlers and divas they might know. Maria told him that she thought she saw you go into John's room. He passed by Johns and saw the 'do not disturb'
sign on the door. He was pissed. He called me yelling, and I told him that i'd come pick him up. He told me no, and said he's fine and he'll be where i am in a few minutues. He got in a car crash Sarah. He was so angry with you and John that he wasn't paying any attention and he got in a crash!!"


I slid down in the seat and cried. I never meant to do this too him. Me, one simple fan, screws every thing up. I had tears streaming down my face and I was trying as hard as I could not to break down and cry completely. I didn't want Jeff to see me down and weak, but what was I suppose to do? Pretend like everything was okay when it wasn't? We pulled into the hospital driveway and I was running full speed.
I was about to ask where Matt's room was when Jeff pulled me and told me he knew.

Matt was in room 258, he had bruises all over his face, and bandages. He looked like a complete wreck.
IV's in each arm, and tubes everywhere else. I leaned over the bed and grabbed his hand. My tears were getting him wet, but at this point I really didn't care. The nurse came in.

"Is he going to be okay?"

"He should be fine, he suffered a minor concussion, and is a little banged up, but he should be able to come home tomorrow."


"He Sarah, I'm going to get some coffee, do you need anything to drink?"

"Nah, thanks Jeff, i'd rather stay here."


I waited tell both the nurse and Jeff left and put my head to Matt's chest. I stared at him and wispered in his ear.

"I'm sorry. I'm so so so sorry, I didn't mean, I didn't know, I'm so sorry, Matt, I love you. I'm just a kid, I don't know how to handle someone loving me back, I'm so sorry."

"Sarah, your bruise, please get off."

It was faint, it was almost a wisper but I heard him say it.


We both laughed but he started coughing, so I shushed him up. I put my finger to his mouth and told him to hush.

"I'm staying here with you tonight Matt, I'm sure you've got worse then this in the ring, but if it's my fault i'm staying."

"It's not your fault."

"It is, now you get some sleep, goodnight I love you, see you when you get up."

I kissed his forehead and went to go get Jeff. I walked into the cafeteria and saw him sitting alone sipping his coffee. He wasn't looking at anything, just staring. I walked over to him and sat down, this time he was the one to break the silence.

"You know, he told me once before, when he met you, that he was going to live for you, and he was going to die for you....I didn't think he meant that literally."

"I'm not going to leave him, ever again...I shouldn't have in the first place, I know. I'm just, well was confused, but it'll be okay now right?"

"What do you want me too say? That I forgive you, for breaking my brothers heart? He's been through it once with Lita, he doesn't need you too."

"I understand why your upset, I would be too, But I hope someday you forgive me."

I got up and decided to leave him to himself, he grabbed my arm. "Sarah, I forgive you." He wispered the words, almost as if I wasn't suppose to hear them, but that'd be just crazy. I went to Matt's bed side and stayed there for the rest of the night.

"Matt, I know your sleeping, but I love you. John? I was just with him because I needed someone, and you were upset, but from now on, I want to be with you, and only you. Until the end of time, your mine.
The day the rain stops being wet, I'll stop loving you."

I felt someone reach over and grab my hand.

"I Love you Sarah."
