Leo sat next to Tae-Hyun's gurney and held her hand.
He squeezed his eyes shut tight. He didn't want to see what the paramedics were doing to
Leo felt Tae-Hyun's hand barely tighten around his.
He lifted his head to look at her.
Tae-Hyun's eyes were half open. She smiled weakly at him and said, "Leo, you're here."
Leo held her hand with both of his and said, "Yes, yes, I'm here. How are you feeling?"
Tae-Hyun looked down at herself and said, "My stomach hurts."
Leo's smile faded and he said to one of the paramedics, "Excuse me, Sir. The patient said his stomach hurts."
Tae-Hyun chuckled and she said softly, "You don't have to do that."
Leo squeezed her hand and said, "I will do whatever it takes to help you."
Tae-Hyun smiled tiredly, "Thank you."
"You're welcome." Leo held Tae-Hyun's hand up to his face and kissed it.
"You are very sweet, Leo." Tae-Hyun said,
Leo smiled and stroked her hair, "That's good. Now, rest."
Tae-Hyun nodded and closed her eyes.
Leo stroked her hair and thought, You're so beautiful to me. Please don't die before I can tell you that.
