After the doctor stitched up your head in the surgery room, you were put into a room to rest. The air refresher produced fresh oxygen. Your eyes were closed and an IV was stuck on your arm. Your head was bandaged up firmly.
Seunghyun, Taeyang, Daesung, and Zico came in to check on you.
Jiyong and Seungri came in as soon as they had gotten fixed up.
“~~~~~~ wake up.” Jiyong shook her.
“Shh. Leave her alone.” Taeyang murmured.
“What if she doesn’t wake up?!” Jiyong panicked.
“She will. The doctor said she was all right.” Taeyang assured.
Jiyong still frowned.
Zico lightly d your hair and took your hand. *Thank you for making it out alive.*
The door opened and Teddy stepped in.
“Hyung!” Your brothers called.
“I signed all the papers. You just have to come to the police station later for witness statements.” He said.
Seunghyun came over, “Teddy hyung, I don’t understand…”
Jiyong ran over, “Hyung, you’re really a cop?!”
Teddy smiled, “Yes, I am.”
“How…?” Your brothers were in awe.
“I guess I should’ve told you sooner but I am an undercover cop so it was difficult to. Besides, you 6 were just children. I never knew you had anything to do with the Dragon case.” Teddy explained.
Seungri put the puzzles together, “So…if we had just stayed with you…we wouldn’t have had to run for our lives…”
“No,” Teddy shook his head, “You would’ve been safe with me.”
“…Well that just !” Seungri crossed his arms and moped.
“Hyung…mianhae.” Seunghyun whispered.
“Don’t be. You did a great job as the oldest. I’m so proud of you.” Teddy lightly ruffled his hair. He pulled Jiyong close, too. “I can’t believe you all grow up so fast. 10 years just flew by, eh? I remember when you showed your rap skills to me at the shack.” Teddy lightly tickled Jiyong who laughed, “Hyung! We missed you.”
“I missed you 6, too. I always thought about you all, especially when it rained. I wondered how you were all doing, if you were starving or cold.” He smiled. Teddy spotted Zico who wouldn’t leave your side once. Teddy nodded at him, “Hey, is that your new brother?”
“No.” Jiyong scowled.
“Boyfriend.” Seunghyun whispered.
“Ohhh, no wonder Jiyong is being edgy.” Teddy chuckled.
Just then, you stirred awake.
“Hyungs! She woke up!” Daesung hollered joyfully. They all rushed over.
“~~~~~~ are you okay?! Do you know who I am?!” Seunghyun asked.
You blinked at the faces and did a double take at a new but memorable one. “…Teddy oppa?”
Everyone sighed in relief. He grinned and ruffled your hair, “That’s right. You remember me, little girl. Well, you’re not little anymore but you are still pretty.”
You slightly blushed, “W-what are you doing here?”
“Long story.” Teddy waved it away.
“You idiot! Why’d you run in like that and sacrifice your life for this douchebag?!” Jiyong pushed Zico’s shoulder, “Was he more important than your brothers? Huh, huh?”
You weakly pushed his hand away, “Don’t hurt him.”
Jiyong rolled his eyes in a huffy manner, “Defending him till the end, huh?” Zico proudly smiled. “Don’t smile!” Jiyong snapped.
“Oppa, stop. Besides, I came back for you. I saw your car pass by so I had to save you all.” You wearily sighed.
The nurse came in, “Excuse me but the patient needs her rest. Only one can remain for the night.”
“I will.” Taeyang said.
“No, I will.” Jiyong argued.
“I’m her mom.” Taeyang said.
“But- wait…whaaaa?” Jiyong gave him a bewildered look as if Taeyang was the one that hurt his head.
“We’ll all go…” Seunghyun eyed Zico, “And let him stay.”
“HYUNG!” Jiyong exploded.
“Come on.” Seunghyun dragged him away.
“Sweet dreams, princess. Oppa will be back in the morning with Baskin Robbins!” Daesung kissed your forehead and left. Seungri slunk after him.
Taeyang sighed, “I’d hate to leave you but I can trust him, right?” He anxiously eyed Zico. He nodded, “Don’t worry, hyungnim. I’ll take care of her well.”
“Bye, oppa.” You croaked and waved. Taeyang waved and left.
There was finally peace and quiet again.
The nurse came back in, “Would you like me to give you more morphine?”
Your head was aching a bit so you nodded. She injected the morphine into your IV.
Within minutes, you fell back into a bottomless slumber.
