Chapter ONE

Drip, Drip, Drip. The heavy water was pounding against the sink basin, causing a stir of water droplets with every link. Martha began to stir. I need to fix that damn tap. She rubbed her head ever so lightly. Did I get any sleep last night? She began to move her head and roll over a couple of times. She was tired, groggy and her head was pounding. With every drop of water in the sink basin her head felt like it was about to explode. She lowered her hand and placed it under her bed. She was reaching for the clock. She maneuvered her hand until she felt it and pulled it up on top of her. She rubbed her eyes a couple of times to see it. 9:00am, damn that is early. Martha suddenly felt a sense of déjà vu. How many days has it been? 30 days in a month, 6 months, 1…2…3..4..oh I give up, it has been a long time.

Martha arose from her double bed and walked over to the sink and wriggled the pipe a few times until the dripping stopped. That is better, now I can get back to sleep. But something made Martha stand very still. She felt different than normal. She saw a light shining towards her. It was calling to her. She was excited. After 6 months of seeing everyone else go back into the light, it was finally her turn, it was finally her turn to see him and feel him again. She walked into the light and smiled. After 6 months of heavy depression and disappointment, she finally had a reason to keep going.


Jack shifted in his sleep and woke up. His eyes flickered and he winced as the sunlight shone through the hospital window. His heart skipped a beat. Like every morning, his hope and faith rose and then sank again as he saw Martha's lifeless body still lying on the hospital bed. He sighed, he had been waiting for six months and still nothing has changed. He wished something would happen. Something that would give him more hope and more faith to carry on everyday for the rest of his life.

"Morning Jack! Oh did you fall asleep here again? We really should get another bed in here right beside Martha for you!" said Rachel as she cheerfully walked through the room.

"Hey beautiful, I thought I told you to wait for me this morning…oh..uh..Hi Jack..sorry I did not see you there" said Hugh as he wrapped his arms around Rachel.

"It's cool man, you don't have to be sorry for anything, at least your girlfriend is conscious" muttered Jack

The atmosphere changed quite suddenly and all three of them felt very awkward and did not quite know what to say. It was the sound of Hugh kissing Rachel's head that broke the silence. This was killing Jack inside. For all he knew he might not ever be able to do that to Martha ever again. Jack shifted uneasily and coughed heavily to hopefully let them know he was feeling uneasy. It wasn't like her could go anywhere. Rachel got the hint and pushed Hugh away.

"Look Jack, I want to discuss with you the option of turning of Martha's life support machine. I know you don't want to but it has been 6 months and nothing has changed. Maybe you should put Martha out of her mise---" said Rachel as she unraveled away from Hugh and sat next to him. Hugh thought he should leave them alone and went to get some coffee for him and Rachel. Jack immediately stood up, looked at her in disgust and started ranting.

"MISERY? MISERY!...is that what you were going to say? How is she in mysery Dr. Armstrong!" yelled Jack as he sarcastically yelled Rachel's professional name.

"Umm..well..it has been studied and shown that when someone is in a coma they live normal lives with everyone else that are in coma's however they can be in great misery if their partner is not there with them." Stuttered Rachel

"Oh really? Have YOU ever been in a coma?" said Jack

"Well no, but the studies have sho--" assured Rachel

"I don't CARE about the studies, I just want my girlfriend back" yelled Jack.

Jack began to cry. He knew it wasn't Rachel's fault but he couldn't help it, Martha didn't do anything wrong, the car accident wasn't her fault yet she was being punished for it. Rachel began to cry. Hugh rushed into Martha's room after hearing Jack yelling and he hugged Rachel. Rachel was beginning to cry as Jack's rantings became more hurting and offensive to her. Jack's yelling ceased when Hugh punched Jack in the face.

"Now is NOT THE TIME!" yelled Hugh as he called security to have him escorted from the hospital.

"Hey, are you ok?" said Hugh as he knelt down to Rachel's level and he kissed her. He held her tight untill she calmed down.


Martha was nervous and excited at the same time. She was hoping and wishing that everything would go back to normal when she got back. Everyone else around her noticed her light and they grew depressed. They all wished they were in her position. You can understand how much hope all these people have. Martha took one slow step at a time towards the light. She couldn't take the frustration anymore and she began to jog. She smiled.

"I'm coming Jack" Martha panted as she disappeared through the light, going back to where she was.

If I could tell the world just one thing

It would be that we're all OK

And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful

And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless

I won't be idle with despair

I will gather myself around my faith

For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes

It didn't steal your laughter

And heartache came to visit me

But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, not out of spite

For someone must stand up for what's right

'Cause where there's a man who has no voice

There ours shall go singing

In the end only kindness matters

In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

We are never broken

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's mind

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's heart

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's eyes

We are God's hands

We are God's hands

Good start, I'm loving this already. Glad that Jack and Martha are together in this fic too.

Hope Martha wakes up now, Poor Jack, he's miserable. :(

Can't wait to read more. :D

Just wondering what song that was at the end and who's it bye?
