Chapter One: Denial
Edward held his breath as Johnny caught up to him outside of the hospital room he had just ran from. “What the hell, Mate? Your wife just lost your baby and you run?” Edward turned on his heel to stare at his best friend. “He was my son, Johnny, my son! And he’s gone and…I don’t, I don’t even know why.” Edward let his back hit the wall and he slid down to the floor. “I’m scared. Was this my fault?”
Meanwhile in Caroline’s room.
Caroline just sat with her hand on her now empty belly. No…it wasn’t real…it wasn’t true. George…he was okay in her belly. Karin held her other hand tightly and handed her the glass filled with water. “You should drink something; maybe it will make you feel better…” Caroline shook her head and pushed the water away, “Drinking something might work for you, but I need my baby Karin, where is he?” Karin parted her lips to speak and suddenly Caroline shot up in her bed tossing the water out of Karin’s hands. The water flew behind Karin getting her hair wet. “NO! Don’t even say it! He’s here! He’s here somewhere; I want to see my baby. Where’s Edward? Has he seen him yet?” Edward came back into the room then Johnny in tow.
Johnny took his girlfriend in his arms rubbing her wet hair softly while Caroline sobbed into Edward’s arms. “No…No!” Edward cried himself unable to stop the tears from falling down his face.
“I want my boy!”
