Chapter two – Don’t leave me alone!
The day had half passed before a doctor showed his face to the group, the adults and young adults looked up to him their eyes full of hope and fear. The doctor cleared his throat carefully before he spoke “She’s is stable at the moment, sorry it took so long we had a little complication. But that’s solved now.” Cell came closer to the doctor “She is going to make it, isn’t she?!” “Cell, let the doctor speak..” Olfa said while she held his arm, looking to the doctor with hope in her eyes. The doctor however remain a bit silent, he seemed to look for words of how to put Carameja’s condition. “She got quite damaged.” He said careful, Broly knew that was a lie she wasn’t just quite damaged he had lost control who knows what he had done to her! It must have been terrible either way, the doctor was a bit too nervous to his taste. With a guilty look he stared to the ground. “Say doc is she going to be on her feet soon or what!?” Waluigi suddenly said now that the doctor didn’t seem to finish his sentence. The group including the children looked to the doctor, waiting for an answer. He scratched with a finger under his chin they knew he had the answer already but seemed to be careful with what he said to them, Sallie frowned a bit and looked from Cell to Broly and back to the doctor. “Listen, they care about her just tell us the truth that’s all we ask for!” Olfa nodded agreeing with her friend “I just want to know if my little girl is going to be alright!” Cell said while his voice trembled. Surprised the doctor stopped scratching his chin and nodded “I am afraid we can’t say when she will wake up.” “Y-you mean she’s..?” “She doesn’t respond to anything of what people normally should do.” The doctor said on a more serious tone “I must ask what happened to her? I never have seen a person with such broken bones!” Broly wanted to swallow but he couldn’t it was as if the guilt had traveled to his throat punishing him by preventing him to swallow or say another word! Cell junior stood up and pulled at the doctors jacket “What do you mean by that!?” “Eh.. well her bones are broken on several places close to each other.. It will take long before that’s healed, if it even will.” Cell junior looked to his father “Will this mean big sis won’t play with us anymore?” Hafsa gasped and looked to their mother who’d only stared at the doctor “Isn’t there anything..” “Ma’am we will do our best to heal and help her. But we also have to face a realistic possibility she won’t wake up at all..” He couldn’t take it anymore! Broly ran out of the waiting room down the hallway into the stair house running them down towards the back door exit and the tears were back too, running down his face but he didn’t care for them anymore the possibility that Carameja would never wake up was all his fault! He had to get away from the others, from the doctor from the hospital the chance he’d hurt someone was too big it’s just too dangerous! HE was too dangerous to be around others he’d never forgive himself, he wouldn’t even ever go near her again just to keep her safe! Sallie shoke her head silently, Broly should know better than this Carameja will be heartbroken to know he ran off to be alone cause he sees himself as a danger to others. She had tried so hard to help him, if he ran away and threw everything away it would’ve been all for nothing! But even so she could understand it was just too much for him at the moment, she thought back when she lay here KITT hadn’t left her side for most of the time but he had drove around and asked people about her, about memories just to hear about her and ease the pain even if it didn’t make the pain less. The doctor cleared his throat “It is a possibility but I can’t see the future so we have to wait and see, if it makes you feel better I can call for someone to be her personal nurse?” Cell just shoke his head “I don’t think Carameja is going to like any kind of doctor or nurse. She’s very scared of them as for needles and hospitals itself besides..” Cell got interrupted by Hafsa’s crying, the little girl let them all hear she had longs of steel. Cell kneeled down and hugged the small girl who’s tears fell down like an endless waterfall Cell tried to comfort her but it was no use. Cell Junior looked angry to the doctor as if it was all his fault “I want my big sister awake! You wake her up now!” he screamed at the doctor who shrieked yelled at off guard. Olfa wrapped her arms around the small Bio Android who kept looking angry at the doctor while tears formed in his eyes. “They’ll do everything they can Junior.” Olfa said softly “Their best is not good enough! They have to do better then perfection!” he yelled. Olfa got a small sad smile around her mouth Carameja had said that once to Cell Junior so he wouldn’t give up on becoming stronger and kept training with his big sister. “I want to see her!” Hafsa cried rubbing her eyes, the doctor nodded “If you think it is wise for them to see her..” Cell stood up, having Hafsa on his arm “You heard them..” “You do realize this can be traumatizing to them to see her like this?” Cell Junior kicked the doctors leg “WE WANT TO SEE HER NOW!” Olfa pulled him a bit back “Junior!!” The doctor hopped a bit on one leg rubbing the other “Okay okay! This way, please calm down!” He led them to the room Carameja laid in. Junior climbed a bit on the bed looking at his big sister “Cara?” he said soft Carameja however didn’t respond. Junior tried again “Carameja!?” he nudged her a bit again no respond the doctor looked to Cell and Olfa but remain silent knowing if the small boy would go too far they would stop him. Cell places Hafsa on the other side of the bed next to Carameja, she just sniffed and cried softly petting her big sisters forehead the only spot on her entire face that wasn’t covered in bandages. Hafsa couldn’t seem to place this view in her head, no this wasn’t right big sisters are strong, they couldn’t be hurt or put in a hospital and they were defiantly not afraid of anything! Olfa bit her lip holding her tears back Cell held an arm around her just looking silent and sad to Carameja. Sallie and Waluigi did the same, not sure what to say or do. Carameja wasn’t like this, so silent she is a joker she’d sing funny songs just to make people laugh she’d even do stupid things just to keep others safe. She is a crazy girl with a dark side she rather not show others, she hated to admit whenever she was sad or down. She put herself last and others first no matter how hurt she might be, another was always more important then herself as she would say. Hafsa couldn’t break contact with her pink eyes from the face of her big sister, still petting her forehead carefully, Cell Junior started to do the same “You’ll be okay.. You just have to!” he said softly “You never gave up on me, I won’t give up on you! No matter what others say!” he hugged his big sister carefully while tears rolled down. Sallie petted Juniors back comforting while she held Carameja’s hand carefully, her hand was cold compared to Carameja’s hand, she looked to the doctor who got the message and silently left them alone with her. After some time they left the hospital and stood in front of the hospital entrance KITT started his engine and drove closer to them ++ what did the doctor say?++ Cell tried to stay calm and told KITT what the doctor had told them and that Broly had left shortly after the doctor had told them the possibility of her not waking up. KITT’s scanner just moved calmly and the car seemed to be thinking ++ Does anyone know where he is now?++ Cell shoke his head Junior and Waluigi shrugged. Olfa Hafsa and Sallie didn’t say a word for a moment. Who knows where Broly was by now, he could be anywhere! KITT opened his doors ++ Step in I’ll take you guys home.++ he said calm.
KITT had dropped the others off at Olfa and Cells home and had asked Waluigi and Sallie to wait for him there, without asking why Sallie just nodded and smiled sweetly to the car who then drove away. He searched for the most thinkable places where Broly could be but after some hours, it started to get dark and KITT decided it was best to look in the places where you mostly could find Carameja if she wasn’t home. First he drove towards the edge of mushroom kingdoms biggest forest, one of Carameja’s favorite places because whatever the weather the forest would always be a bit dark and gloomy. As if he could’ve felt it his scanner saw Broly sitting against a tree on the ground at the edge of the forest, his head rested on his arms that lay on his knees. KITT drove as close as he could to Broly who looked up “KITT are you alone?” ++ yes, I am.++ KITT understood the question Broly was ashamed of himself to be crying as well he felt very guilty to what happened to Carameja. “What am I going to do KITT, what am I without her?” KITT didn’t expected this question and remained a bit silent to think about this for a bit. Broly sniffed and rubbed his eyes “I don’t know what to do, I caused this it would be hypocrite to sit next to her and just hold her hand..” ++ Why do you think that will be hypocrite Broly? You lost control did you not? I know for a fact you’d never hurt her like this on purpose!++ Broly looked right at the cars scanner that calmly went from the right to the left and back. “How’d you know?” ++ I am maybe a car, I maybe don’t have eyes like you but that doesn’t mean I am blind. You love her You care.++ Broly blushed a bit denying it would be stupid KITT was very smart he should’ve known KITT have read his body language whenever he was around her. Now he got the small hints KITT had given him before but only just now he understood them, at the time being he’d only had stared at KITT as if he spoke in a complete different language and Carameja would’ve laughed at his facial expression. ++I can understand how you feel Broly.++ KITT said some more serious ++ But don’t you think you could’ve stayed a bit longer there? Not for the others and if it’s not for yourself why not for her? You know she fears hospitals and everything related to it.++ “But..” ++What would Cara want? It’ll be obviously someone she cares for around her right now.++ “The others will..” ++They are at Olfa and Cells place. There’s no one there by her right now. Broly she cares for you more then you think, what are you afraid of that she doesn’t want to see you anymore? You really think Carameja would’ve gone all that in the past for you to let you fall now? Carameja wouldn’t give up on you even if that means giving her life for you..++ Tears stung his eyes again, it was true Carameja always supported him if he was sad, she was there if he was scared she was there even when he needed a little push to dare to say a simple ‘hello’ to people she was there. He considered himself a danger, she never has she saw him for who he is not for what he could do to the planet. Broly knew what KITT was trying to do but it didn’t make the pain or guilt go away and as if KITT could look right through him his engine roared a bit louder shrieking Broly out of his thoughts. ++Go to her.++ KITT said on that calm assuring voice which made him sound so full hope. Broly wiped his tears away and stood up nodding “Your right, She’s always there for me it’s my turn to be there for her.” If KITT could smile he would looking how the Saiyan floated up and flew away on his way to the hospital, his job was done. As Broly enters the hospital several nurses asks what he is there for and if he had an appointment he didn’t answered them and kept walking towards to the stairs. One nurse grabs his arm “Young man!” it sounded funny he was so much taller than most people around him he could see the humor of it, he knew if Carameja stood beside him she would’ve burst out in laughter. “Where do you think you’re going?!” the nurse asked on a strict tone. “To a friend.” Was his answer “Sorry but you have to come back later, visiting hour is by far long passed!” “What makes you think I care when it is visiting hour? I have to be there for her and you are not going to stop me ma’am.” The nurse was intimidated by the tall young man who looked calm down on her, she’d let his arm go and took a few steps back. He’d only smile and walked up the stairs.

He’d only smile and walked up the stairs. A nurse left the room as he walks into the hallway towards the room, the nurse seemed to write some notes down on her way to give out report about Carameja’s condition from this moment. Broly waited until the nurse was out of sight and entered the room, he was a bit scared to look at her at first but he reminded himself he was there for her and hoped she’d hold on and wake up soon. He sat down on a chair next to the bed he looked a bit sad to her, she was wrapped in bandages wires and strings attached to her body. It seemed so unnatural to see her like this but he stayed calm and held her hand that’s what she would’ve done for him after all, he sat there for hours looking to her as tears filled his eyes again “Please Carameja, wake up.. Don’t leave me alone..”
