Breaking The Habit - Chp 6: Freedom
A/N: Sorry for the abrupt cliffhanger, but I needed enough material for this chapter.
You all probably know that ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit, right? Just checking…
Your heart is full of broken dreams, just a fading memory
And everything's gone, but the pain carries on
Lost in the rain again, when will it ever end
The arms of relief seem so out of reach
But I, I am here

"I got him," Havoc volunteered, picking up Ed and following Knox into the hallway. The other soldiers remained huddled around the Colonel, who was shaking from a fresh round of shock.
"He's… he's alive…" was all he could manage.
Hughes smiled and patted his comrade on the back. "I must admit, that news flash threw me for a loop, too."
"I just hope Dr. Knox will be able to stabilize him," sighed Fuery, wiping his eyes under his glasses.
