Amelia’s life is in danger Owen is destroyed.
“Hello beautiful” Owen kissed his girlfriend.
Now they spent every spare moment of the day together, lunch and dinner, in hospital, in the on-call room and even at home. They were a couple, the whole hospital knew about them and both lived with pride their love in the light of the sun.
They didn’t separate from each other for more than a day.
But even if they were together for the past four months neither of them had even said the three words that the other wanted to hear, perhaps for fear that the relationship it would explode or simply because it’s afraid to reveal everything about yourself to another person.
“How was your surgery ?!” he said.
“Hmmmm well. I left to the interns all the fun. It was just a simple aneurysm. The I do the badass surgeries.” She smiled and wrapped her arms around Owen’s neck.
“How about if we go home, quiet dinner and then …” he smiled slyly leaving the sentence unfinished.
“ I’m in.” Amelia placed a quick peck on his warm lips.
“But wait a minute, I have to go check on a patient in the ER.”
While Owen was giving instructions to Kepner and the interns, Amelia looked around in the crowded ER.
Her eyes traveled over the beds, all carried out with grace.
Deep in thought she calmed herself until a figure lying on the bed 4 caught her attention. A familiar face, but where she had seen him ?! In Los Angeles.
“Amelia Shepherd.” Shouted the man. At these words she paralyzed when recognized the tone of voice, the cadence of the words.
That was the drug dealer from which she and Ryan used to buy the ‘oxy.
The man got out of bed and walked over to her, Amelia looked around searching for someone or Owen but she didn’t see him.
now he was infront of her mumbling .
“You’re a doctor. Uh. Who would have thought that my most loyal customer treat people.”
“I’m not that person anymore. I am no longer the girl you knew in Los Angeles,” she said through clenched teeth.
“Ooh one thing I learned from this work. People never change.”
The man grabbed her wrist violently, Amelia screamed and tried to free herself self from the man’s iron grip.
Owen who was in the other room ran to her as soon as he heard her scream. He arrived in time to see Amelia fall on the cart with the operation tools.
Time ran in slow motion he knelt beside her and saw the pool of blood spread on the white floor.
Kepner and interns helped Amelia stopping the bleeding and removing the scapel pierced hiin her s stomach.
He looked at Amelia and when Kepner said that she had everything under control the fury strike him like a truck.
He ran to the man who was running away, when he reached him he grabbed him by the neck sleeve and lifted from the ground.
“If anything happens to her, I” Owen was red with anger, breathing heavily.
“I didn’t want.” the man said he breathe heavily. And Owen’s hand tightened even more on the man’s neck.
“I kill you.” Owen yelled “I’ll kill you understand ?!” Owen looked at him and threw him against the nearest wall.
The man hit his head violently and fell to the ground.
Both Jackson and Alex intervened, Avery took the man to do a CAT scan but he didn’t want to feel sorry for him he hurted his friend.
“Hunt, we’ll talk about this later.” and he walked away.
That afternoon they planned Amelia ’s surgery, Meredith couldn’t do it because she was a relative, Webber was a close friend of Amelia and then he was out.
The scalpel had created serious damage to internal organs of the neurosurgeon.
The pancreas, liver and some sections of the intestine were injured.
It was a long and painful surgery for both Meredith and Owen.
He felt so guilty, he had sworn to her that he would protect her despite everything and everyone.
He failed miserably.
“What would I do if I lose her ?! ?! I love her so much. Oh she doesn’t know how I feel about her. I don’t ever had the courage to tell her the truth, perhaps for fear that she ran away ?! No I was a coward, every time that I dream my future everything falls apart.
I was afraid that I could ruined everything, but not with her. I love her too much, she’s the person that I wanted and that I was looking for all my life. ”
Owen’s heart ached when Bailey looked up to the gallery and nodded.
She saved Amelia’s life, the woman he loved.
He stood at her bedside for three days in a row. His face was gaunt, honed by fear and suffering.
Unshaven, dark circles under his eyes purplish marked.
He hadn’t come home for days, he washed, ate and slept in the hospital and only if someone was watching at Amelia’s bedside.
He no longer knew what day it was, he didn’t work for days he had taken a time off work to be with her.
When his hope was leaving a voice caught his attention.
Her voice was like a whisper, “Hey.”
He looked up and immediately ran over her bed.
Copious tears flowed from Owen’s face “Babe.” Sobbing “I thought I’d lost you.”
A light and sweet smile appeared on her tired face “No way.”
Owen kissed her hard not wanting to let her go.
The words were out of his mouth without filters “Don’t you dare do it again. I can’t , I won’t live without you. You came into my life on tiptoe, you upset everything. You have the ability to tear me apart and pull myself together. You are the breath of fresh air that I was looking for for, you’re pure oxygen in my blood.
When I’m not with you I feel bad physically. I wanna fell asleep beside you and wake up with you in my arms. You are the light that illuminates my future ,you’re my home.
When I’m with you I am a better man, your light your greatness and your heart amaze me every single day. You’re my everything, my present and my forever. I love you.
I can’t imagine or leave in a world without you.”
Amelia looked at him in amazement, she had never heard more beautiful words, tears flowed from her face, but the smile never disappeared “I thank heaven every day to have met a person like you. You make me feel fully accepted, and you make feel beautiful and loved. You don’t want to change me and accept me as I am. I love you too. ”
She shifted herself slightly from the bed “What are you doing, you can’t move the sutures can jump.” He said worriedly.
“Come here.” He followed her orders and lay down beside her .
Amelia looked into his eyes and smiled she caressed his face, shave under the palm of her hand was the best feeling in the world.
Owen closed his eyes and finally began to breathe again.
“Don’t worry I’m here. rests, I’m not going anywhere” Amelia stroked his hair and kissed him gently on the forehead, he fell asleep in the arms of the person he loved most in the world.
In each other’s arms both showed their vulnerability by making a joint force, they could face everything together.
