The adventurous life is dangerous and thrilling, but it becomes beautiful when you have a partner to do the life loving adventures with you. But risks and accidents are an essential part of this life. They’re waiting around the corner like a long lost best friend to grab you the second he has any opportunity. My loving, beautiful wife to be met. Such an accident that left her in a coma.
Her boyfriend, Eric, had to make an incredibly difficult decision. Either stay by her side for 19 years or move on with his life. That was the toughest moment for him when after 19 years, Stanley woke up finally and all he could see on her face was anger. But he couldn’t understand why she was angry. It had something to do with the accident or something else triggered this emotion.
That uncertainty left Eric in so much trouble for 19 years. When the doctor said that they didn’t know when she’d wake up, Eric had been thinking of how she’d react about the accident. He was afraid that she’d blame him for everything that happened. Eric had been listening to the stories of people who still managed to hear while in a coma. Eric felt that his fear had been confirmed.
Eric knew that Sally would require an explanation. To understand this, let us tell you a little backstory about the accident and what happened later. Eric and Sally had been together for two years and a half but still didn’t live together. They’d been making plans when they were only 19 and 21 years old respectively, so they didn’t have to hurry about a family and could enjoy a better and healthy time together. They were no ordinary vanilla couple.
They loved to play extreme sports together and participate in many potentially dangerous adventures, sometimes even to risk their lives together. They both had completed their studies and earned their own money from full time jobs. They spent their money on whatever crazy things they wanted and dangerous trips. They always tried to lift their spirit together, climbed mountains, parachuted, and dived into deep charcations. They thought life could not provide them with enough adventure to fill their tanks.
They were happiest together, but not everyone was excited about their lifestyle as they were. Even the couple’s parents hated that they put each other’s lives in danger in such a careless way. They already had spoken out against it so many times. Still, the couple never cared about their opinions or even from anyone else. They sometimes felt they’d been doing something wrong, but unfortunately this feeling wouldn’t last long.
They didn’t want to spend their life like regular couples. They knew they had to make their life adventurous and fun if they wanted to live together. That’s why they did parkour in the busy city center or took their bikes to the irregular forest terrain on the city outskirts. But even regular tracks can bring about disasters that never happened before. They traveled in the area that had already been tracked.
For so many trackers, of course, such an easy task was not difficult for the people of their skill level, but still, it was a good way to make their blood pump and increase their energy. When you’ve done so many dangerous things in your life that you get complacent and even consider your security guaranteed. But surprise can always come out of nowhere and catch even the most experienced bikers. Eric, Sally and their friend Van were ready to leave. Van wasn’t far behind her, but she was quick to establish a good rhythm.
Suddenly, something appeared in her way just a few meters away from her when her bike was faster than average. It was a rabbit, but Sally was so confused that she acted in a split second and immediately turned to the right. She couldn’t see where she was going and entered the densest part of the forest and hit a tree.
She fell from the bike and hit the ground hard, banging her head in the process. Bikers must be prepared for anything to happen in the jungle when animals are all around them, but unfortunately they were so overconfident that they didn’t even wear a helmet.
This was when Eric realized how wrong he had been his entire life. A couple had not been taking anything seriously, and then within a few seconds, Sally was lying unconscious before him and he was shot. Eric almost panicked, but then realized that she was still breathing and he needed to act quickly. He immediately called the ambulance, but there was another problem waiting for them. There was no network in that part of the forest where they were at the time, and he couldn’t connect with anyone.
He didn’t know where to find the tower in that maze, so he made a run to find an area with the network. When he was finally able to call, he got to know that the ambulance couldn’t reach the place, first because it was too dark, and second because they weren’t able to reach that place within time. But they promised to reach outside the jungle. It was dangerous to take Sally on the bike because of the bumps, so Eric carried Sally in his arms. He didn’t feel tired, and the adrenaline rushed through his body.
At that time, Eric was only thinking about saving the love of his life was unconscious in his arms. He finally reached the edge of the forest where the ambulance was waiting for them, and they provided first aid to Sally. They drove as fast as they could and reached the nearest hospital while stabilizing her on the way. The doctors were able to save her life from danger, but they had a sad message for Eric. The paramedics waited to announce anything until they were sure, but they finally had to tell them that Sarah had gone into a coma and they were not sure how long she’d take to recover.
It broke Eric’s heart into tiny pieces. Seeing her lying on the hospital bed silent and motionless, he could see from his experience that the doctors were good. Still, they couldn’t wake her up without the risk of some serious complications.
He was devastated by everything, and when he called his parents he had such worse reaction. He met Sally’s mother hysterically crying and her father blamed Eric that he put their daughter’s life in danger and that he was always warning the couple that something dangerous would happen.
Even his own parents were angry with him, but they all came to the hospital immediately to see their daughter. On their arrival, they saw Eric outside the room with such expressions that were enough to change their mind. Instead of arguing, Sally’s father apologized for his reaction and said it was not his fault. Till then, Sally had been transferred to the average room where machines around her would keep her stable. Eric’s eyes were full of tears to see Sally lying on her back in the hospital with closed eyes and swollen head where she hit the ground.
Her arm was plastered because it broke when she fell. They sat next to her bed for a long time, just looking at her and talking about her. Unfortunately, doctors could do nothing but advise them that they should go home and get some rest and that they’d take care of the girl. Eric again asked if they could tell when she’d recover, and the doctors told him that they had cases when it was a matter of days and when it went to months and years and years. He rode with her parents to his home.
They discussed what happened and how he was going to move on with everything. From that point, he could tell nothing about what he expected from his life. He didn’t go back to work the next day and decided to take a week off. He wanted to spend time with Sally in the hospital and think about his coming life. One day Ban came to the hospital and asked if you could do anything for them.
He reminded them of such accidents were always a possibility with their lifestyle, and both of them wanted the other to move on with something else if something like this happened to any of them. But now, when the day came, he didn’t know what to do. He couldn’t imagine leaving the love of his life and trying to move on with someone else when they promised each other they were together for just a few months and their relationship was not as strong as it was at the time of the accident, and every such promise felt like being practical.
ut now when the relationship was really strong, he felt like it would be betraying Sally. Even his parents requested him not to waste his life on a person who would never wake up, and Eric knew that it was possible that she would not wake up for years.
She’d been so important part of his life now, at least he could hope for the best. It was a hard time for Eric, and spending a lot of time in the hospital affected his personal life as well as his social life. He’d stopped going on adventures and vacations. He started doing his office work in the hospital. He’d stopped meeting his friends.
Everything he liked became the story of the past. And it was like everything in his life paused except the hospital. He got a lot closer to her parents. They were happy that he stayed true to their relationship, but they were worried about him. After such instances from Sally’s parents and his friends that he actually decided to go out and do something for himself, he tried to resume his hobby.
He decided to take a trip abroad and go hiking with his friends. He didn’t want to touch his cycle again, but he went back to do parkour in the city and met new people. And in those new people, he met a girl from the past who had always been interested in him. When she found Eric alone, she had a chance to interact with him again. She didn’t know about the situation.
