Your eyes were heavy and slowly, bit by bit you tried to open them up. The room was white and from all the equipment around you, you realised that you’re in the hospital.
“Y/N! Dear, you’re awake!” someone said.
“Jungkook?” you asked.
“No, Y/N, it’s your mom.”
“Mom, where’s Jungkook?”
“What do you mean where is he?”
“I have to call him, make sure he’s okay,” you said in a shaky voice. You quickly sat up and started searching for your phone when your mother noticed what you’re looking for and gave it to you before laying you back down. You frantically searched for his number in your address book, you checked a few times, scrolling through it from the start to the end just to make sure but it wasn’t there. You looked at your mother who stared at you with a sorrowful expression.
“Mom, why don’t I have his number?” you asked. It seems like she wanted to say something.
“Tell me!” you begged her. “Is he okay?”
“Y/N do you remember what happened?”
“Oh my God, is he? Is he okay?” you couldn’t hold it in anymore and started crying.
“He’s fine or I think he is, I don’t know but the doctor did say the hit to your head was pretty hard, what else do you-”
“Mom! I don’t care about that. I have to call him,” you said and snatched your mother’s phone from her hand, she used to have his number as well and you sighed in relief when you found it. You quickly called him before your mother could stop you.
“Y/N, let me just say one thing, you might end up pretty disappointed,” but you didn’t listen to her anymore as he already picked up.
“Jungkook?! Where are you?”
“What? Who is this?”
“It’s me Y/N, don’t you recognise my voice?”
“Y/N? What do you want?” your heart sank at his question, a nervous laughter escaped your throat as you had no idea how to react.
“I thought you said yourself that we’re done. Don’t call me anymore,” he said and hung up.
You sat there not knowing what happened and only now did you felt the pain in your whole body, your legs were stiff and you lifted the covers off to look what it was. One of them was broken. Your mother put her hand on your thigh, reassuring you that your leg will be okay before speaking.
“Y/N, dear, he wasn’t with you when the accident happened. You were driving from work alone,” you had trouble processing what she was saying, you remember him being there. There was a pause before she spoke again. “It might be a bit of a shock but… but you two broke up before all of this happened.”
You couldn’t believe it, why would you even do that? Is your mind playing tricks on you? You needed to think.
“Mom, could you leave? I want to be alone for a while.”
“Of course, I understand. The doctor said that you might experience a minor memory loss but it might come back if you’re willing to work for it,” she smiled. “I will be back in the evening.”
You lay in your bed for hours and watched how the city was engulfed in darkness and wanted nothing more but to remember. You heard your room door open and turned your head, thinking that it’s your mother. The light coming out of the hall was restricting your view as it was completely dark inside. After looking at the person for a while you then recognised who it was and closed your eyes. What do you say? The person came in and closed the door. Without turning the light switch on he picked up a chair from the corner and sat besides your bed. He was silent for a few minutes.
“Y/N, I know you’re not actually asleep, so stop pretending,” Jungkook sighed. “I met your mother or rather she called me and told me what happened.”
You wondered what he was thinking and as if he could read your mind he answered.
“She also told me that you lost part of your memory,” you two didn’t say anything again for a while after that. You were the first to break the silence.
“Is it true?” you asked and he took a deep breath before speaking.
“It will be easier if I say all of it in one go. We broke up. That’s true. It’s as simple as that. I’m sorry that you don’t remember and I may seem harsh now but you yourself told me that you would rather die than stay with me, so I…” he stopped, wondering how to finish his statement and you used this chance to slip your hand from under your covers. Hearing this from him broke your heart and you wanted to hold him but he didn’t do anything and fell silent again.
“Just take it, you idiot,” you thought and you could feel tears starting to stream down your face. As if knowing, he finally took your hand and you squeezed it tightly.
“Don’t cry,” he said turning his head away. “It was always one of my weaknesses,” he whispered so quietly, you weren’t sure you even heard it.
You stayed like this and it seemed that time stopped. You couldn’t see his features clearly in this darkness but from his breathing you knew he was in deep thought. He squeezed back your hand and let go of it before standing up.
“I… I need to go. Please don’t contact me again,” he said and went to the door.
“Jungkook, wait!” you wanted to chase after him but your broken leg was holding you back and you almost fell out of the bed.
“Can’t we start over?” you begged, sitting up. He stopped in the doorway.
“It wouldn’t be fair if I’m the only one who remembers what happened,” he told you and without sparing you another glance left the room and you alone in the darkness.
