As Theresa waited for the doctors to tell her anything about Kris,her phone rang.
Angelique:Ewwwww.....why you sound like that?
Theresa:This has been one hell of a nite.
Angelique:Girl....you wouldnt guess who was at my house earlier?
Theresa:Look Angie....im tired and im really stressed....
ima call u later ok?
And before she could say bye she hung up.Theresa dropped her head into her lap and tried to make since of the following week.As she came up with a solution,Kris' mom walked up to Theresa.
Karen:You coulda left me one child.....just one.(crying)
Then she sat next to Theresa.
Theresa:Please...im sorry....its not my fault.I love both your kids.And Kris is not going to die.I wont let it happen.
Karen:How do you know?Hes had girls like you before. Caring,cute and smart.But when its time to give up and go your own way you wont.
Theresa:Ma'am,im sorry but you must have me confused.... i like your son and all but ive only been going wit him for a couple days.
Karen:........Baby im sorry....my heads so messed up from everything.Get a call at work saying my daughters dead and my son is in critical condition.I need to relax.
After that nobody said nothing.Then a doctor comes out and asks who Theresa was.
Dr.Kindall:He keeps asking for you and we have no choice but to take you in there.Its a chance that if he sees you... he will survive.
The doctors rushed her into the ICU to see Kris.She felt bad that it wasnt his mothers name he was calling but atleast she knew he was ok.She pushed her way through the doctors and nurses to get to his bedside.They were still looking for the bullet but it seemed as if the only thing that mattered was Theresa.When he saw her face with tears he felt as if he wanted to go but couldnt.He had to be the one to bring joy into her life.So he gained alot of his strength back.Theresa took his hand and it was so pale and limp like his sisters hand was before she passed.
Theresa:Baby....your gonna make it....Please dont die...(crying)
Kris:(shakingly)Im here for you.Im not goin nowhere cause I love you.
Those three words made her cry even harder.Not tears of sorrow but pain and joy.She had longed for Rick to say those words but the thought of him made her want to stay by Kris' side much longer than life.She kissed his hand and the doctors pushed her into the hallway.She sat in the chair that was in the walkway that lead to the wating room.After maybe 45 minutes,the doctors came out looking tired. Theresa got up and walked into the room.She was expecting the worst but got the best.He was laying there,looking tired. Tired of stress,pain and life.She wasnt ready to let him go.She was willing to stay by his side 100 percent.She was ready for him to call her his wife.Even though it was to early, this past week made her think of life as precious.She was there with him instead of being Rick.She felt like she had accomplished something.
