You're The Closest To Heaven That I'll Ever Be
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
She closed her eyes and waited for the impact. Hopefully it wouldn't hurt that bad and it would be over in a second.
But there was no impact. Instead, she was pushed roughly out of the way of the car and stumbled to the cold concrete sidewalk. She looked back just in time to see Andy's body hit the front of the car, roll up onto the hood and over the roof, off the trunk and back onto the street.
The car swerved on the grass and kept going down the street. Lily quickly picked herself up off the ground and ran over to Andy who lay still on the damp street.
"Andy? Andy! Oh my god, Andy. Wake up, please!" She knelt down beside him and took his face in both her hands.
His eyes opened slowly and he looked up at her, smiling.
"Andy, you idiot!" Lily shouted at him through her tears. "What the fuck were you thinking?!"
"I'll be there for you through it all even if saving you sends me to heaven." Andy said and then he closed his eyes again.
"No... Andy, no, wake up. Stay with me. Please, don't leave me." Lily begged, shaking his lifeless body. He wasn't waking up but she refused to think he was dead.
Blue and red flashing lights and the sound of sirens came towards her. The ambulance pulled up next to where Andy was laying. The paramedics jumped out of the back and ordered Lily to stand back while they transferred Andy into the stretcher and into the back of the ambulance.
A police car pulled up and the officer got out of the car, hurrying over to Lily.
"Miss? May I ask you a few quick questions?" The officer asked.
"Um, quick, yeah. Please don't let the ambulance leave yet." She replied.
"Okay," The policeman said. "So can you explain what happened?"
"My...My friend, he... He was hit by a car. He pushed me out of the way and saved me." Lily explained.
The policeman nodded as he wrote down a few notes on a pad of paper. "Okay and did you happen to catch a license plate number or the color and make of the car at least?"
"Oh... Um... Ugh..." She struggled to remember. Everything had happened so fast. "Black, I think. A black sedan, maybe? I'm sorry, I can't remember."
"That's alright." The officer assured. "Thank you, Miss." He turned to go back to his car.
Lily looked around and saw the paramedics closing the back doors of the ambulance.
"Wait!" She called out and ran towards them. "Please, let me go with him."
The paramedic eyed her suspiciously. "Are you the girlfriend?" He asked.
"Yeah, yeah, I'm his girlfriend. Please, just... Let me go with him. He needs me. I'm the only one he has." She begged.
The paramedic still looked skeptical but opened the door of the ambulance. "Get in." He said.
She thanked him as he helped her up into the back of the ambulance where Andy lay, still unconscious. Another paramedic directed her where to sit so she was out of the way but she could still be close to Andy. She took one of his cold hands in both of hers and held it the entire way to the hospital.
