You're in an accident
a/n: I got inspired from another fic I read on instagram so I don’t totally know how the whole memory loss thing works this is just fictional so if anything’s inaccurate just go with it ;)
His heart stopped as he answered the phone from an unknown number. He had been trying to reach you all night, but you wouldn’t answer. He knew something was wrong- you always answered. You’d gotten out of a meeting just to answer his call to then have a ten minute discussion on if fish have feelings. So as soon as his phone rang, seeing the unknown number, Luke knew something was wrong.
He picked it up quickly, barely getting out a worried “Hello”
“Hey Luke, it’s me sorry I’m using y/b/f/n’s phone right now cause mine died… it just took me a while to figure out which number to use” you let out a giggle towards the end.
He let out a huge relieved sigh, running his hand through his hair. “You scared me half to death oh my gosh I love you, okay? Are you on your way home?” he asked sitting down.
“Aw babe I’m sorry for the scare, I love you too. Oh and this is off topic but can you change the sheets by the way? And yeah we grabbed a cab home I should be there-“ you started but got cut off when y/b/f/n’s let out a scream.
Luke furrowed from the other line and was about to laugh it off when he heard a car beep, your scream and a crash. He froze for a second before processing what had just happened.
“y/n? y/n? please baby can you hear me? are you okay?” he repeated as if it was going to change anything. He heard sirens and the line went flat.
Luke tried not to let out tears as he checked the location of the call. Not too far away. He let out a muffled sob praying this was a dream, or- or some sort of elaborate prank and you were gonna show up any second. It wasn’t until he got his second unknown number of the night from the hospital. That’s when his world came crashing down. He couldn’t contain himself, he couldn’t breath or think or process the situation.
He slowly calmed down to grab his keys and drive to the hospital. When he parked, he went straight to the entrance and saw your brother in the waiting room crying.
no no no no no no.
“Luke oh my god you’re here” y/b/n spoke wiping his eyes.
“please tell me she’s okay” Luke said trying to keep it together.
“It’s not good, man. My parents just went back there before you came. I haven’t heard anything yet. I heard before that she’s going through serious head trauma.”
Luke took in these words carefully and nodded. She’s alive and breathing. She will be okay.
He had to keep telling himself this as he waited and waited. Your parents walked out and Luke’s head shot up. They walked up to him, “She got out of surgery a while ago, she is okay. Their cab was hit by a drunk driver” your dad spoke.
Luke calmed down a significant amount in that moment but wanted to kill the person behind that wheel. He smiled wiping his eyes again with a nod. “But listen Luke, there’s kind of a ‘catch’”
His smiled faded as your mom spoke, “As of right now she has no memory of anything that has happened to her in about the past two years. When the doctor asked basic questions she was fine, but up to more recent things, it’s completely blank. The doctor wants you in there but be aware more likely than not she won’t know who you are. They say this is temporary, but we don’t know for how long. It could be two weeks, months or years. We’ll just have to be patient.
He prepared himself as he walked in but thought, she has to remember me, right?
He wanted to cry again when he saw your current state- you were all hooked up to wires and bandaged up profusely. There were cuts all over your face but he couldn’t care less.
You were alive. You were breathing and that’s all he could ask for.
“Ah you must be Luke” the doctor introduced herself. “I’m going to ask y/ n about you and such okay?” she asked bringing him over to you.
You blushed slightly at the sight of this attractive man.”Okay y/n do you know who this is?” she asked slowly as you looked him up and down. You looked at him sympathetically and shook your head no. His face fell but he kept it together.
“Okay well this is your boyfriend, Luke. You’ve been together for a year and a half and he’s going to take you home in a few days. Is that okay?” she asked
“How the hell did I manage to make him like me?” you whispered to the doctor but failed to keep it quiet. Luke chuckled softly, already feeling a little better. “You know I ask myself the same thing every day about you” he smiled and you blushed again. “I’m really sorry I don’t remember you.” you said sadly. “Don’t worry, we’ll get it back,” he took your hand”
It had now been a month since your accident. Luke took you home as planned and started reintroducing things to you. He showed you pictures and videos of the two of you, even a snapchat memory he had taken right before you left the night of the accident. GUYS LOOK AT HOW LUKCY I AM LOOK AT MY PRETTY GIRLFRIEND
Luke was very patient at first, hoping anything could spark your memory. But now he was losing hope. You were still apprehensive about things he did somethings, because to you it felt all brand new. His heart shattered a little every time you didn’t kiss him back at first or things like that.
You were both now getting ready for bed as you danced around the bathroom brushing your teeth. He smiled at the sight. yup, you were still there.
You joined him in bed as you shut off the lights, both drifting asleep. You curled into his side, as he wrapped his arms around you securely as you slept. Sometime around 4 in the morning you woke up in a sudden burst. Your head was killing you and it felt like a ton of bricks were hitting it at once. You held your head tightly letting out a whimper. Luke woke up slowly and turned on the light.
“Baby what’s wrong?” he asked worried as he saw you holding your head.
“Yeah my head it really hurts… wait a minute didn’t I ask you to change the sheets?” You said looking around seeing them the same.
“Yeah I’m sorry I- wait a minute..” Luke said thinking about what you just said. You asked him to change the sheets months ago…
“Y/n when’s our anniversary?” He asked thinking of a quick question only the old you would’ve remembered.
“October 9th… wait-“ you smiled sitting up, “Luke I think I remember! I remember everything.” you cried happily as he hugged you tightly, “oh my god babe.”
“You’re Luke, my amazing beautifully handsome sweet boyfriend who met me after you spilled your coffee all over me. You were all blushy and nervous and you took me to the park on our first date. We kissed on our third date at your place and the night I got hit I asked you to change the sheets cause I hate the color” you listed, laughing happily towards the end.
“I love you so so much. You’re back!” He exclaimed kissing all over your face. You laughed meeting your lips with his as he kissed you gently.
You pulled away slowly. “I’ve always been there, Lu. It just took me a while to get back to you.”
