Blair winced as the paramedic cleaned her head wound.
“Who knew it would take a natural disaster just to make us say those three words to each other?” Chuck joked, smirking.
“Ha. Ha. Very funny, Bass.”
The paramedic put a small patch of bandage on her head. “Are you feeling okay, Miss Waldorf? Light headed? Dizzy?”
Blair shook her head. “I think I’m okay. Thank you.”
Chuck took her hand and kissed it. “I do amor you, though.”
She smiled at him. “Good. Because I amor you too.”
“Serena?!” Aaron called out. “Serena?!”
“Aaron?” a voice asked from behind him.
“Oh, thank God!” He wrapped his arms around her. “I was so worried.”
She returned the embrace. “Me too.” As they continued to hug, Serena felt something wet on her hand. She pulled away from Aaron to take a look what it was.
“Oh my God! Aaron, you’re bleeding!”
Serena turned him around to take a better look, only to find a glass shard sticking out of his lower back. “We have to find a doctor…paramedic…someone…anyone…”
Aaron winced. “Serena, it’s okay; I’m fine.”
“Don’t be stubborn. I’m getting you a paramedic, and that’s final.”
Vanessa tried to pick herself up off the floor. “Nate?” she asked out loud, still trying to stand up, but failing. She heard someone groan in pain from a few feet away. “Nate?!” she tried to call a little bit louder. She tried to stand up once more, and this time, suceeded. "NATE?!" she called out yet again, into the dark, empty room.
The unknown person groaned again.
Fuck, she thought to herself. Fuck-ed-y, fuck, fuck, fuck. Try harder, damn it! This is you're fucking best friend and boyfriend! You have to find them!
"Vanessa," she could barely here someone trying to call for her. Whoever it was, they're voice sounded weak and strained.
Vanessa searched the room some more. The ceiling lights had fallen, walls had collapsed.
That's when she saw it. Her. "Oh god. JENNY!" She rushed over to the blonde who was lying in a pool of blood - her blood. Most of the blood had come from her abdomen, where there was a large gash. "Oh god. We need to get you help." Tears started to form in her eyes, and she started to choke.
"It's too late," the younge blonde stated weakly. "It's too late," she said once more, a tear falling down her face.
Vanessa shook her head. "No. It's not too late." She looked into Jenny's eyes and put her hands on both sides of her face. "I'm gonna get you help. And you - we - are going to be okay. Okay?"
Jenny nodded. "Okay."
"VANESSA!? JENNY!?" they heard Nate's voice call for them, concern and panic evident in his voice.
"NATE! We're over here!" Vanessa tried to lead him in her's and Jenny's direction.
The two girls heard him try to rummage through the mess that the earthquake had caused, and shortly, he found them. "Oh god." He rushed to where Vanessa was sitting. Jenny's head was placed on her lap. "What happened?" he barely could get the words out, for he was starting to choke up as well; tears were starting to form in his own eyes too.
"I don't know," Vanessa shook her head, "I think something sharp cut her. Badly," she added pointing towards Jenny's wound. "She's still bleeding, Nate. We need to get her help."
Nate nodded trying to take in all the information. "I have an idea," he said.
Vanessa looked at him hopelessly, one mais sob escaping her lips.
"Let me have her," he said, taking off his jaqueta and placing it over the large gash. He then carefully, and gently took Jenny's limp form into his arms, standing up slowly. "I hear sirens. There's gotta be paramedics out there."
After 5 minutos - and what seemed like forever to them, the two found the ambulances that were parked outside of the school. "HELP!" they both called, trying to get a paramedic's attention.
Two paramedics rushed over to them with a stretcher. "What happened?" one of them asked Nate and Vanessa.
"Ugh...during the earthquake, I think something sharp might've cut her or fallen on her," Vanessa explained.
The paramedic nodded, jotting down a few notes onto the clipboard. "We're going to take your friend to the nearest hospital," she explained. "But you two should get checked out as well."
Nate nodded. "Thank you."
She nodded and hurried over to help the other paramedic get the stretcher Jenny was on into the ambulance.
Nate looked at his girlfriend. "Hey," he cooed, wrapping his arms around her, "everything's gonna be okay. Jenny's gonna be okay. We're gonna be okay. Just...everything's gonna be okay." He rubbed her back and just let her cry.
Bart searched the crowd for his wife. "Lily?" he called out, hoping that a miracle would happen; that she would, somehow, hear him.
He turned around to face Lily. "Lily? Oh god," he said, embracing her in his arms., "I was so worried. When I saw all the ambulances...I was terrified. Terrified that I wouldn't get the chance to apologize-"
"Shh," Lily hushed him por a kiss. "It's okay."
A few tears fell down Bart's face. Fuck. Man up, Bartholomew, a voice commanded him inside his head. Bass men do not cry. But he didn't listen, Didn't care. He was just so happy Lily was alive.
He pulled away from Lily all of a sudden. "Where are the kids? Are they okay?"
"I called Eric. He said he was fine. But I don't know where Chuck and Serena are."
"I'll go and try to find Chuck. You try to find Serena."
She nodded and the two parted, heading in different directions to look for their kids.
