doctor!tom finding out your were in a car accident and wanting to go to the scene but he had to wait until you’re in the hospital to see you and he isn’t allowed to treat you so he stays by your side the whole time, p.s I love your writing 💕
“Tom, can you come here for a second?” Harrison looked over at his best friend, wishing that for once he could just keep him oblivious to what was about to happen.
“Yeah what is it mate? Got paged that there was some patients coming in from a nasty car accident on the interstate.” Tom slid off his white coat, before grabbing a pair of gloves, but Harrison grabbed his arm and stopped him.
“Okay, with what I’m about to tell you, you’re gonna have to be calm and stay calm. Can you do that mate?” Harrison took a deep breath when Tom nodded his head before letting the word slip out of his mouth. “It’s Y/N. She was one of the people in the accident. Her car got totaled, but from what I got from the EMS who called, she’s stable.”
Tom blinked his eyes, feeling the tears start to form in his eyes. He shook his hand, hands running through his hair before tugging on it.
“It’s gonna be okay alright? I’m gonna be the one working on her. You can’t okay? I know you want too mate but you can’t.”
Before Tom could say anything else, he heard the ER doors sliding open and heard the nurses spouting off information. But all he could hear was a ringing noise in his ears. He felt like he couldn’t breath.
When he saw the room that Harrison was taking you in, he sprinted after you, sliding the curtain closed.
“Tommy.” You whimpered, tears flowing down your cheeks when you finally laid eyes on your fiancé.
“I’m here love, right here yeah? I’ve got you, you’re okay now. I promise.” Taking your hand in his, Tom gave it a light squeeze before pressing his lips against it. Closing his eyes, he tried his best not to cry, but he couldn’t help it.
In an instant, his life could’ve changed. He could’ve lost you.
He almost didn’t hear you hoarsely whisper his name. He only opened his eyes when he felt you squeeze his hand.
“I’m right here okay? Promise. I’m right here and yes I am in pain, but I’ll be okay Tom. I’m okay.” Bringing his hand to your lips, you kissed it, smiling at the way you saw the corners of his lips lift.
“When we get the okay, I’m gonna take you up to your own room and watch over over you for the night okay? Not going anywhere.” He whispered, squeezing your hand again.
You have him a soft smile, your eyes fluttering closed as the pain medication set in.
A few hours later after you had gotten settled into a room, Harrison came by to talk to Tom. He opened the door to say something, but stopped.
The two of you were curled up in the hospital bed together, Tom’s arm wrapped protectively around you and his lips pressed against your forehead. You had instinctively curled your body around his, there was no space between the two of you.
With a hint of a smile on his lips, Harrison walked quietly in the room and tapped Tom’s arm.
“What? What is everything alright? Is it time to go on my shift?” Tom groaned.
“Nah, you’re good mate. Some of the residents covered your shift, they knew you would want to be with her no matter what. Even got it sorted out for you to be the one to check her vitals the last time before we send her home.”
“Need to talk to Charlie about someone covering my…”
“Already got your next three shifts covered.” Harrison interrupted, chuckling at the way Tom’s body relaxed.
“Tommy?” You whispered, groaning at how hoarse your throat felt.
“Right here love. What do you need?” He jumped off the bed, his eyes on the monitor next to him to look at your vitals.
“Just wanna go home. Wanna just go home and cuddle with you.” You giggled, making the two men laugh when you held your hands out, trying to grab Tom’s scrubs.
“Well, looks like the pain meds are kicking in real good huh baby?” Tom chuckled, pressing another kiss to your forehead.
