Crash and Cry

Hey all, this is a new fic I wrote. Hopefully y'all like it, and let me know if you want me to continue it!
———————————————
It was a beautiful Saturday, but everything was about to change. I'd been living with my boyfriend for over a year now, and we always had such a beautiful relationship. He loves me and I know I love him more than anything. That weekend he decided to go camping with our friend Jason. They'd been preparing for weeks and I know my boyfriend was super excited to head out to spend time in nature. After helping him pack and getting his food ready, I gave him a kiss and sent him off, reminding him to be safe. I had plans to chill out all weekend and give myself a much needed break from work and stress.
It was 4pm and I had been pigging out on chips and Netflix marathons for hours until I got a call from Jason. "That's weird," I thought. "They should already be at the camp, and it has no cell service out there." I quickly answered.
"Jason?" I heard nothing but shaky breaths.
"I'm so sorry," he croaked. I could hear the tears in his voice.
My heart dropped. "What happened?"
Breathy sobs began to escape him. His voice shook as he spoke. "We- we were on the freeway and I was stupid."
I held my breath as he spoke.
"We'd been on the road for eight hours. I was driving and he started drinking and I was bored so I took a few drinks too. We were going 80 miles and then it was like this semi truck came out of nowhere."
"What happened to-?"
"I tried to swerve out of the way but so did the semi-truck and we crashed and he went flying out of the windshield. I'm so sor-"
"How could you do this, Jason? He's your best friend."
I heard him begin to sob on the phone. He tried to speak through his sobs. "H- he- he's- in the hosp- hospital. They p- put him in- a- coma."
"Can I speak to his doctor or a nurse?"
"Yeah, I'm in the parking lot and I already explained that he has no family and that you're all he has." He took a deep breath and kept talking but I heard nothing he said.
"I gotta go."
Jason tried to keep me on the phone but I hung up and called the hospital they were at. They basically told me he's having too much brain swelling so they put him in a coma. The hospital is 5 hours away but they told me I couldn't go see him because they're not letting in visitors due to the pandemic. I made them promise to call me with updates. As soon as I hung up from the hospital I saw I had 3 texts from 20 minutes ago from my best friend, Adam.

Adam: Hey I heard about what happened, you okay?
Adam: Obviously not but are you okay? Do you need anything?
Adam: You know what forget it I'm coming over. You shouldn't be alone right now. I'll be there in 20 minutes.

Immediately, tears sprung to my eyes, but I tried to hold them back. I knew if I started crying I wouldn't be able to stop.
With tears in my eyes I replied: "I'm okay it's ok you don't have to come." After I sent it I realized he was probably already arriving.

Adam: I'm pulling into the parking lot right now.

"Fuck, as soon as he gets here I'm gonna break down. I can't handle that right now." I went into the bathroom to wash my face, hoping that'd keep me calm. I checked myself in the mirror to make sure I was presentable. My eyes were red and completely full of unshed tears. As soon as I was done scrubbing my face, I heard his knock on the door.
I took a deep breath, trying to will myself not to cry. I opened the door and barely had time to see his concerned expression before he rushed in and wrapped me up in the tightest hug I'd ever had. Immediately, tears burned in my eyes as I tightly shut them. Almost as if he could sense that, he squeezed me tighter. That was all I needed. Several tears began to escape my eyes. They rolled down my cheeks and landed on his shoulder. I tried to hold back the sobs as he let go and looked into my eyes.
"I love you, and I'm here for you, okay?"
I nodded as the tears kept coming out. He turned around and to my surprise, pulled in a suitcase he'd set down outside my door. Then he shut the door to my apartment.
"What's this?" I asked.
He turned to me and wrapped me up in another hug. "I love you, I said I'm here for you. You shouldn't be alone so I'm gonna stay with you until he gets better."
"But- what about work?"
"I'm doing my work at home anyway, I can get it all done on my laptop. It doesn't matter though, what matters is you." He pulled away and looked into my eyes. "Talk to me; how you holding up?"
I looked away from his concerned face as more tears fell from my eyes. I couldn't speak, all I could muster was a shake of my head. He wrapped his arms around me and led me to my couch. I sat down and noticed him kneel in front of me through my blurry vision.
"Look at me," he whispered gently.
I opened my eyes and looked into his bright blue eyes.
"Whatever you need from me, I'm here, okay? Anything you need done I'll take care of. I just want you to let me in and talk to me. Don't shut me out. I'm here for you and I love you so much."
At those words, more tears rushed from my eyes as a quiet sob escaped my lips. He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me into another hug. I couldn't hold it in anymore. I buried my face in his shoulder. My tears had smeared all over my cheeks and my sobs were no longer silent. He gently rubbed my back and held me tight. I lost track of time as I cried for what felt like hours.
Eventually I pulled away. I reached up to dry my cheeks but he beat me to it. He held my cheeks as he slowly wiped my tears. As soon as he dried my cheeks, more tears would fall. Eventually he gave up and pulled me into another quick hug. He sighed softly as he released me from the hug. I sniffled as I wiped my tears.
"I'm going to the bathroom to get you tissues, okay? I'll be right back." I nodded as he got up off the ground and rushed to the bathroom. Surprisingly though, he shut the door instead of just grabbing the tissue box. After several minutes, he finally came out with the tissue box, and I noticed his pink, wet eyes. He sat down next to me on the couch and wrapped his arm around me as he gave me a few tissues from the box. I took them and blew my nose.
After a few moments, he broke the silence. "I'm so sorry you're going through this." I looked at him through my tears. "You don't deserve this kind of pain and I hate that Jason put you both through this." His eyes began to get wet. "I love you so much, just know you're not alone, okay? I feel your pain, and I'm gonna stay with you every step of the way."
I shut my eyes and to my surprise, I realized that my sobs had turned into wailing. Adam pulled me into his lap and laid my head on his shoulder as he buried his head into my own shoulder. After a few minutes my cries quieted down. That's when I noticed his sobs. He was gripping the back of my shirt and gently sobbing. I couldn't help myself, I had to see him so I pulled away. His face was blotchy and tears were smeared all over.
"Why are you crying?"
"I just-" he paused, trying to collect himself. "I've known you so long and we've been through so much together. You truly deserve to be happy. It kills me that you're in so much pain and I can't fix it. I love you. I can feel your pain and I'm just so sorry." Several tears fell down his cheeks as he spoke.
I'm not gonna lie, I hated that he was crying. But it felt good to cry together with him. As close as we were, it brought us together even more. He pulled me into his chest and rested his cheek on my head as he rubbed my back and arms. By this point, my crying had been reduced to a few tears and a lot of sniffles. He had begun to sob quietly though. Eventually I had to pull away to grab more tissues. I blew my nose and handed a few to him. He wiped under his eyes and pulled me into another hug. My tears just weren't stopping so I didn't bother drying them.
By this time it had been a couple hours. I was tired and I know he was too. I turned around and leaned against him. We laid back and eventually I fell asleep. When I woke up I discovered he was asleep as well with his arms around me. I saw the clock on the tv and noticed that I'd been asleep an hour and a half. I looked at Adam and saw his cheeks were still wet. He'd been crying even after I fell asleep. I leaned back on him and tried to go back to sleep but I couldn't.
I don't know if my boyfriend will be okay, but I know I'll have Adam to help me through no matter what happens. He knows I'd do the same for him.

Re: Crash and Cry

This is an amazing fic. I hope you decide to continue it. I could picture every detail. It was really sweet how Adam wanted to comfort her and make her feel better as it was that he was willing to open up to her and cry out of feelings for her pain. Honestly it made me feel for both characters.
