I ride beside Zoey's limp body, her shirt soaked in blood. I just got her back, no way I am losing her. When I get my hands on the man who did this I swear I'm going to rip his head off and mount it on a wall. Rage builds in me covering my grief. I hold onto Zoey's hand like I'm a lifeline. The ride to the hospital seems to take forever. 

Finally arriving at the hospital I've watched enough TV to know where I'm supposed to stop but I don't let go of Zoey's hand. They push me away and I stop. "Let me at least kiss her." I beg the nurse who nods and I plant a kiss on her lips and whisper in her mind.  

"Fight baby. Don't give up. we have a wedding to have." I step away and watch them roll her away and the farther away she gets the more my heart breaks. 

Nick and Mariana soon roll in and he does the same thing with a bit more protest, we both take seats hunched over in defeat our hands clenched in tight fists. I look up when Cam runs in. 

"How are they?" I shake my head. "They took them through those doors." I nod my head towards the door that separates us from our beloveds. I feel cold metal cutting my skin on my chest. "They just opened Zoey in surgery." I say and revel in the pain, whether for punishment or as reassurance that Zoey's alive.  

"If I can feel her she's alive." I whisper and clench my fist as I endure the pain. I look over to Nick who's doing the same except he's crying. Three hours later Mariana and Zoey's parents have joined us. A middle-aged bald man comes through the doors and approaches our group. 

"I'm doctor Edwards. Are you the families of Mariana Calavera and Zoey Lewis?" We all stand eager to hear what the doctor has to see. "Yes." Peter says answer for us. "Please tell me how my baby is." Emma begs. 

"They are going to be fine. They are current unconscious we had to remove several pieces of shards of glass from Mariana but they didn't damage any major organs." He looks up from the clipboard.  

"It says that Zoey was pregnant, is that correct?" I answer before anyone else. "Yes."  

"I'm afraid I have some bad news." I feel all blood drain from my face realizing what the doctor said, Zoey was pregnant. My stomach drops. "Is something wrong with the baby?" I ask barely able to get the words out.  

"I'm afraid that she's lost it. A large piece of glass was propelled into the womb. We had to remove the fetus to prevent infection, I'm so sorry." I fall to my knees this loss is going to destroy Zoey.  

"It gets worse I'm afraid. The damage was so extensive that Zoey won't be able to get pregnant again." I choke on air as tears soak the floor.  

This is it, the thing that's going to destroy her. Not the rape, or the torture. No, knowing that she has lost any chance of having children. I feel a tinge of pain and realize that Zoey is waking up. I stand. 

"Can I see her." The doctor looks at me hesitantly. "Please let me see my fiancée." I beg his face softens and nods. I follow him through several hallways to a plain white room that hurts my eyes. He turns the lights off.  

"I'm afraid only one person can be in here at a time." His words pass me I'm too focused on the girl I love in the bed unconscious bandaged all over.  

I force my feet to move until I'm right next to her. I kneel next to her bed and take her hand laying my head on it. I cry and apologize over and over.  

"Why you crying?" She asks her voice hoarse and low. I look up through tear filled eyes I see her looking at me. "I'm so sorry baby, I should have been there." I take a seat on the bed running my hand over her cheek. 

"I couldn't take you to my bachelorette party it doesn't work like that." She doesn't know. "What is it? I can feel your sorrow." I let out a shaky breath. "You were in a car crash and you had several pieces of glass in you and" I don't want to say it, I don't want to be the one to destroy her.  

"Tell me." I shake my head. "I can't, it will destroy you." She squeezes my hand. "Dominic tell me." I look into her eyes. "A large piece of shards of glass was found in your womb." She gasps immediately placing her hand on her bandaged stomach. "You lost the baby. The damage is permanent and you won't be able to have any more children." 

"Wha...What?" I shake my head as tears fall down my cheeks. "I'm sorry." She pulls me to her and I wrap my arms around her as we both cry for the loss of something so precious.  

Doctor Edwards returns and finds the scene. "I assume you told her." I nod her face tucked against my neck. 

"Well I would like to move you into a room with your friend. She's awake as well." Zoey looks at the doctor and nods.  

A few minutes later we are moved to a room with yellow walls and Mariana is in bed curled up next to Nick. Zoey had managed to cry herself to sleep never letting go of my hand. I don’t want to lose her.
