Talk to me, distract me.
From the piece of wood piercing your abdomen?
Okay, remember our first date? You were nervous. I ordered kale to impress you and you ordered fries to impress me. Remember?
Remember when James was born? I was scared he wouldn’t make it and you were so sure he would. I remember having to pry him out of your arms just to get a chance to hold him. You were so protective of him once he finally made it into the world. Maura? Are you still with me?
Y-yes, I’m…I’m here.
Remember when James and I were sick and you stayed home to take care both of us? You missed your favorite conference for that.
I love you.
I know. So stay for me.
But I can’t.
You have to, Maura. I need you. James needs you. Your parents, my Ma, your sister, my brothers - they need you. You are the glue that holds us all together. I can’t do this on my own. I can’t raise James on my own without you. He’ll end up like me, Maura. I know you don’t want that.
He’ll be so brave, Jane. If he’s like you…he’ll be such a brave and kind man. I want him to be like you…just like…
Please don’t leave me…Maura! Please! I love you too…I love you too.
#And that’s when EMS shows up#they slap a respirator on Maura#hang 2 units of fluids#Jane decks the paramedic who says she can’t ride in the bus#they all go to the hospital#and when Maura wakes up#Jane is passed out beside her#and she spends a long time watching Jane and messing with pieces of her hair#and finally someone remembers to call James#and it makes a fantastic story for James’ wedding reception#because he ends up marrying the doctor who operated and saved Maura#ta da#i saved it#and it’s barely lunch time
