Getting past the pain- Part 9

Nora slumped to the floor in Bo's arms after passing out. when she wouldn't wake up, he began to panic.

Bo: Dam it Nora. Don't do this to me. Wake up.

He put his head down and listened to her heart beat. It was then that he realized she wasn't breathing.

Bo: Oh God.... NO.... No you don't... You are NOT dying on me you hear? Your NOT.

As he began to perform CPR he thought breifly about calling an ambulance. He knew it was probably the smart thing to do but he couldn't risk it. Instead he called Marty, who promised to keep things as quiet as possible. Within minutes she was walking in the door with her medical bag.

Marty: What happened Bo?

Bo: I'm not really sure. We were coming home from a carnival and she just collapsed in my arms.

Marty: She didn't go on any rides did she?

Bo: No. We just played a few games and sat and talked on the grass. Then....

Marty: What? (pause) Bo, you have to tell me. I need to know everything If I'm going to help her.

Bo: There's not really much to tell. She kissed me. That's all.

Marty: Ok, so how did she react to that? Was she tense at all?

Bo: She said she was a little uncomfortable towards the end. But Marty, she's dealing with alot these days. It's almost impossible to avoid stress.

Marty: What else?

Bo: What do you mean what else? Isn't that enough?

Marty: It would be if it was the truth. I think there's more.

Bo( hemming and hawing a little): Well, we did talk about our past. And I... I told her I wanted her back. I told her I loved her.

Marty: Oh Geese. That means she's on overload. We've got to get her to a hospital fast.

Bo: Why? What's going on?

Marty: She could lose the baby.

Bo watched in agony as they carried her away on a stretcher. He would have done anything to take her place right now and it killed him to think what might happen to her after everything she's endured. Somehow he had to find a way to make it better.

Marty: Bo? You coming?

Bo: I'm right behind you.

He climbed into the ambulance that Marty ended up calling and placed his hand in hers. He took his other hand and began to brush the stray hair out of her face.

Bo: Baby it's ok. I'm right here. Everything is going to be all right. I promise.

When they got to the hospital, they were already rushing her into the emergency room. All he could do was stand on the sidelines and pray.

Bo: I love you Nora. You're going to be just fine.

He watched as they hooked her up to a million different machines and it broke his heart. She just had to be all right. There was simply no alternative. as they continued to work on her, he was reminded of another time he almost lost her so many years ago.

        Bo: Sometimes I don’t understand you, red. How could you want to go

        through something like this alone? I thought that’s what love was

        really all about, you share everything in someone’s life, all of

        it, even the pain. Maybe you didn’t really know just how much I

        love you. Maybe I didn’t tell you enough, maybe it wasn’t clear,

        but…honey, I love you. I love you more than anyone’s ever loved

        anybody. And if you can pull through this, I swear, I’ll prove it.

        I promise. Wake up and look at me and see me. See me, please.

        B: Open your eyes, sweetheart. Please. Come on, open your eyes and

        take a look at the guy who just loves you so much that he would...

        Nora. (she slowly opens her eyes) Hey bright eyes. Nora? Nora, can you see?

        Nora: Bo?

        Bo: I’m right here, sweetheart.

        Nora: What are you doing here?

        Bo: Nora, can you see me?

        Nora: Yeah. I can see.

        Bo: You can see! I’m sorry, I’m sorry, okay, okay, but you can see,

        really? Huh?

        Nora: Yeah!

        Bo: Are you sure?

        Nora: I can see!

        Bo: Really? Well, okay, what am I wearing?

        Nora: You’re wearing a really goofy grin.

        Bo: You can see!

        Nora: What are you doing here? What are you doing here, you aren’t

        supposed to know.

        Bo: Yeah, I know that, but you relax, all right? You’re supposed to

        be recovering right now.

        Nora: How did you find out?

        Bo: Look, that’s not important, the only thing that matters right

        now is that you’re fine and you can see.

        Nora: But I don’t understand…

        Bo: Honey, listen, we’ve got all the time in the world to talk

        about whatever it is that you want to talk about. Right now, I

        want to get Ben and I want him to get in here and check you out,

        all right?

        Nora: (crying) Don’t leave…

        Bo: All right, honey, just relax, okay? I want to get Ben. (she

        won’t let go of his hand) Hey, come one, are you supposed to be

        getting those things wet so soon after surgery? (leaves)

        Nora: I can see. (laughs


        Bo: Here’s looking at you, kid.

        Nora: I like that part, the looking part.

        Bo: Me too.

        Nora: I know you, Bo. And I know no matter what you say, you are

        furious with me for keeping you in the dark about this, aren’t


        Bo: You have to swear to me that you will never shut me out like

        this again.

        Nora: I thought I was doing the right thing.

        Bo: I know. It wasn’t. I’m not a shrinking violet, I’m not some

        fair weather fiancÚ. I love you more than anything in this world,

        so I think that means that it’s enough to go through whatever with

        you, I mean, the good, the bad, the rotten, the scary, the

        wonderful, the whole enchilada.

        Nora: You are angry with me.

        Bo: All I feel tonight is gratitude. I am so grateful that you’re

        going to be all right, that you still have your eyesight, because

        it’s really obvious that you have a hard time accepting help.

        Nora: So I’ve been told.

        Bo: Now that the whole scare is over, I think it’s safe to say that

        it’s a good thing you aren’t blind, because you would have been

        tough to handle.



        Bo is whispering in Nora's’s ear.

        Nora: (laughs) Bo! We can’t.

        Bo: Sure we can, we have something to celebrate.

        Nora: But here? Now?

        Bo: Why not? I don’t know about you, but I’ve never done it in a

        hospital bed before.

        Nora: (laughs) Bo Buchanan! I just had brain surgery.

        Bo: I know, but it’s not your brain that I’m after right now,

        honey. (climbs in next to her- kissing)

        Nora: I’m about to get out of here any minute! We’ve got the rest of

        our lives.

        Bo: I know, we don’t have a second to waste. (kiss)


Bo(staring through the window after snapping out of his daydreamns): I got you back you back then Red. I'll get you back now. You just keep fighting. Keep fighting baby. I'll be there.

He was then interupted by the doctors coming out of the emergency room. It didn't look good. He could tell by the look on their faces.

Bo: How is she doc?
