Beside You

Perfectly Ruined

Sergio stepped off the team bus into the Valdebas training center parking lot to find Alex and Carter waiting for him. Sergio had to stay an extra day in England for some photo shoots and interviews with Madrid after winning Champions League. Alex flew back the morning after the after party with Carter. Sergio grabbed his suitcase and backpack as he said good bye to his teammates before strolling over to Alex and Carter. "Hola nena." He said before kissing her and moving to give Carter a big hug. "Hello papá." Carter said hugging him as Sergio picked him up. "Papá?" Sergio mouthed at Alex surprised. "He wanted to call you that because that's what his sibling will be calling you, he's been deciding on names for you." Alex smiled. "Really Sergio is fine." He said as he put Carter down and loaded his stuff into the trunk of the car. "No he really wants to, I didn't tell him to." Alex said. "He can call me daddy, papá makes me feel old." Sergio smiled. Alex ruffled his hair before kissing his cheek and getting in the Audi. Sergio sighed happily as he started the car. "What was that about?" Alex asked smiling. "My life is good." Sergio smiled. "I am engaged to the one girl that I would lay down my life for, who I love so much, her son loves me like I'm his father and I love him, I have a child on the way, and I'm a European champion." He smiled wider. Alex smiled and grabbed his hand, rubbing her thumb over his hand. Sergio stopped at a red light and leaned over to kiss Alex, "I love you." He spoke. "I love you more." Alex responded. "I love you most." Sergio smiled. Alex chuckled as Sergio got on the freeway. Sergio kissed Alex's hand and placed his hand back on the steering wheel. Sergio moved to change lanes as someone cut him off, catching the tail of the his car. Sergio spun out, and was hit on the passenger side before the crumpled car came to a stop, Sergio was knocked unconscious for a moment.

"Sergio! Sergio!" Carter screamed. Sergio blinked awake and quickly looked around. "Sergio I'm stuck and mommy is bleeding!" Carter wailed. Sergio moved painfully as he freed himself from the car. He quickly noticed the engine flaming, and moved to grab Carter in one arm and quickly ran to the other side of the car to save an unconscious Alex. Sergio ran with the two in his arms and hid behind a freeway wall, protecting them as the car blew into a ball of fire. Sergio shifted to have Alex sitting up next to him as he held a screaming, crying, and scared Carter. Sergio tried to comfort Carter as he pulled his phone out and called for an ambulance. Sergio held tight to Carter as he looked worriedly at Alex.

"Alex! Alex please!" Sergio said as he held her hand on the ambulance, while the paramedics helped to save her life. "Alex I love you! Please baby! You can do this." Sergio said as tears filled his eyes. Sergio had cuts all over his body and bruises to match them. The paramedics thought he may have broken his hand but he Insisted the help Alex. Carter had been taken by the police to meet them at the hospital, Sergio really didn't want him seeing this if it took a turn for the worse. Alex was not fully conscious, all she could see was a blurred image of a man with dark brown, short hair, who had blood all over him, and was crying. That was the last thing Alex saw before she blacked out.

"Mr. Ramos please, you need to stay here so we can X-ray you and asses the rest of your injuries." The petite nurse said as she tried to hold back the strong footballer. "No! I need to see her! I need to be there!" He yelled angrily. "Sir you must stay here! She is in intense critical condition, and is heading into the brain trauma unit to ensure she doesn't have internal bleeding in her brain." She said trying to push him back. Sergio stopped pushing and looked at her, "are you single?" He asked. The nurse looked puzzled, "no I am engaged." She said cautiously. "And what would you if your fiancé was where mine is right now?" He asked seriously. "I would do everything I could to get to him." She sighed admitting defeat. "Go ahead." She said quietly, moving out of his way. Sergio pushed past her and sprinted down the hall to find Alex on a monitor with her heart racing as the doctors shocked her back to life, Sergio's face paled and his legs went weak, he was sick and had to leave. Sergio sat in the hallway sobbing to himself as he prayed Alex would pull through. He wished it were him, she didn't deserve this she had been through so much. Their life together was perfect, and now it was shattered.

Sergio woke up to the sound of a steady beeping noise, he moved his hand around to find the alarm but was shocker when he felt the cold metal of a hospital bed. He lifted his head up and saw Alex asleep with a tube down her throat to assist her breathing. Sergio looked down and saw his hand holding hers, and the other in a stark white cast, he must've fallen asleep holding her hand. His head was pounding, he was sore all over, and he was starving. "Hey buddy." Skylar said softly in the doorway. Sergio could. Barely manage a smile before he started crying again. Skylar ran over and hugged him, Sergio hugged her back and cried into her shoulder. "Bud, you need to calm down, alright? She will pull through this." Sky said trying to comfort him. "What is happening to her? Is she in a coma?" Sergio pulled back and looked sadly at her. Sky sadly smiled at him and wiped his tears away. "She's in a coma, but there isn't any bleeding in her brain so she should wake up soon." Sky responded. "How long have I been asleep?" Sergio asked. "I got here two hours ago, straight after I landed in Madrid and heard the news, you were asleep when I got here, the crash was about 12 hours ago." Skylar answered. "Oh." Sergio said, his eyes widened. "Where's Carter?" He asked as he panicked. "Relax he's in the children's wing sleeping." Skylar said. "What happened to him! Is he okay? Oh my god, I'm a terrible person." Sergio said as he panicked, gripping his hair tightly. "Hey hey, calm down, we don't need you to have an anxiety episode when you don't have your medicine with you." Sky cooed. "You aren't a terrible person, you saved Alex and Carter from a car that almost exploded. He has a broken arm and Iker is upstairs talking with him and signing his cast." Skylar continued. Sergio took a few deep breaths, "okay." He sighed. "Can I go see him?" Sergio asked. "Yes go ahead I will call you if something happens." Sky said. Sergio painfully moved and walked off to say hello to Carter.

Sergio rushed back down to Alex's room to find her coughing on the air tube, before the staff removed it. Alex blinked away the sleep and the fuzzy image of a tall, handsome man in front of her cleared up. Alex was frightened when he grabbed her hand and kept saying her name. "Alex? Love, are you alright?" The man asked. Alex had no idea who this man was, but something seemed familIar. "Wh-who are you?" She asked shakily.
