Continue of "The One When Tragedy Strikes"
Ross glanced at his sister sitting beside him in the back of a taxi. She'd been staring out the window the whole time. Tears ran down her face as she rubber her small stomach. "Mon" he whispered "Its gonna be okay, Chandler is gonna be fine" She turned to look at him "You don't know that Ross" she cried "He's trapped in a burning building" she looked at her engagement and wedding rings "He has to be okay Ross I..I can't do it alone. He looked ta her "Do what alone Mon" he asked "Raise the kids, live" He moved closer to her wrapping his arms around her. She leaned into her brother and cried until they arrived at the office building Chandler worked in.
огонь engines, ambulances, police cars and news vans filled the streets. огонь fighters ran all around with oxygen tanks, water hoses and ladders. Ross helped Monica out of the taxi. She looked up at the building. There were flames and thick black smoke shooting out of the 12th floor jut three floors below Chandler's. "Chandler!" she cried trying to pass some firefighters. One of them stopped her "Ma'am Ты can't go in there. She started at him for a минута a memory of Chandler flashed in her mind. There'd been a огонь in Phoebe and Rachel's apartment they all raced over there and Joey asked one of the firefighters if he could borrow his uniform. Monica scolded him and then told Chandler "You would look good in that." She whispered.
"Excuse me" the firefighter сказал(-а) when he heard her whisper. "Nothing" she сказал(-а) "I..I have to get in there my husband h…he's on the 15th floor" He nodded "We know there's some people on a few floors above the огонь we're going to get them out" he assured her. "But I can't let Ты anywhere near the building its to dangerous and its not a good idea for Ты to be breathing in all this smoke" he motioned to her stomach. Ross came up behind her. "He's right Mon come on we should Переместить away from all this." "No!" Monica cried "Not until I know he's okay" he put his arm around her "Did he take his cell phone this morning" she nodded "You can use my cell phone to call him okay" Ross led Monica way from the burning building and pulled out his cell phone. He dialed Chandler's cell number and handed it to his sister.
Chandler's office was quiet except for an occasional cough. Everyone looked around when they heard a cell phone ringing. They all checked saying it wasn't theirs. Chandler glanced at his briefcase. "Its mine" he whispered forgetting he had it. He took the phone out and saw Ross's cell number. "Hey Ross" he answered. "Chandler!" Monica cried "Are Ты okay" she asked "Mon" he asked surprised to hear her voice. He also noticed sirens and yelling. "Honey where are you" he asked "Outside with Ross" she сказал(-а) "What! Sweeite tell him to take Ты Главная Ты shouldn't be here its not good for Ты или the baby" "I'm not leaving with out Ты Chandler" she cried "I Любовь you" He sighed his wife was too stubborn for her own good. "I Любовь Ты too honey" he whispered
"Where are the twins" he asked "At Главная with Rach and Pheebs" she сказал(-а) "You have to come out of there Chandler we need Ты I..I need you" Chandler hated hearing her cry. "Don't worry Mon I'll be fine" he сказал(-а) "You promise" she whimpered "I promise I'll be out there holding Ты real soon sweeite" he whispered hoping he'd be able to keep that promise. "Ar...are Ты alone" she asked "No honey Steve and Charlie are here as well as my assistant Courteney, and Zack" he told her "Zack the guy Ты brought Главная to be a sperm donor ?"
Chandler laughed a little "Yes that's him" he heard some noise "Mon what's going on" he asked "Th…they made us Переместить again th…they сказал(-а) the огонь jumped to the Далее floor" she whispered "Chandler I…I'm so scared" she cried
"Shh its okay baby don't be scared okay I'm right here" Chandler whispered trying to calm her down with out letting her know just how scared he was himself. "I…I wish Ты were out here holding me" she cried "Me too" he whispered "The огонь its getting closer look!" Courteney yelled pointing to the little bit of smoke seeping under the door. "Chandler wh...what happened Monica cried when she heard his assistant in the back ground. "Nothing sweeite everything's fine" he whispered as he looked at the smoke slowly coming in under the door even though his куртка was there. "I Любовь Ты Monica, so much" he whispered "Never forget that" he сказал(-а) with tears in his eyes. It didn't look good and he wanted her to know how much he loved her before it was too late.
He suddenly started coughing so hard his lungs hurt. He silently cursed himself for all those years of smoking cigarettes. He dropped the phone and fell into his chair putting his hand to his chest as his coughing continued "Chandler!" Monica cried "Chandler please answer me" she sobbed clutching the phone so hard her hand hurt. "Chandler" she sobbed again.
"Chandler!" Monica cried "Chandler please answer me" she sobbed clutching the phone so hard her hand hurt. "Chandler" she sobbed again. "Mon what's wrong" Ross asked with concern. "H...he told me he loved me t…o never for get that then the line went dead" she looked up at the building in the distance. "Oh God Chandler plea...please don't leave me" she sobbed. "Shh its gonna be okay Mon, its gonna be okay" Ross whispered hugging her. The cell phone started ringing in her hand. "Chandler!" she cried answering it. She sighed sadly "It's some professor" she сказал(-а) handing it to her brother.
Chandler couldn't stop coughing his lungs hurt and his throat burned. "Sh…shouldn't we do something" Courteney asked. "We need to get him over to the window he needs some air" Steve said. He took a hold of one of Chandler's arms and told Zack to grab his other arm. They helped him up. "Monica" he gasped in between coughs trying to reach for his phone. "We have to get Ты to the window first" Steve told him. They got him to the window "Take a few deep breaths okay" Chandler nodded. He took a few deep breaths. It helped his coughing but his throat still burned and his lungs still hurt. Tears stung his eyes as he thought of his wife. "At least I got to hear her say I Любовь Ты one еще time" he thought as he took another deep breath.
Monica glanced at Ross on the phone. She wished he'd hurry up Chandler might have been trying to call. She sat in the curb and put her head in her hands. All she could do was cry. She needed Chandler she didn't know how to live with out him and she didn't want to have to learn. She felt someone touch her shoulder and whisper her name. "Chandler" she whispered looking up. It wasn't Chandler. "Joey" she сказал(-а) "Wh..what are Ты doing here" she asked. "Gina and I came to New York to see my sister Dina, she and Tommy are getting married I stopped by your place to see Ты guys, Rach and Pheebs told me what happened" he told her. "Is uh…is Chandler really in there" he asked motioning towards the burning building.
Monica nodded and began to cry again. "Aww Mon" Joey whispered pulling her into a hug. "Chandler's gonna be okay" he сказал(-а) as he glanced at the огонь praying he was right. "I hope so Joe y I..I don't know what I'd do if I…if I" she stopped not wanting to say the rest. "It won't happen he's gonna come out of there to Ты and the kids okay" he whispered. "Hey Joe" Ross whispered walking back over to his sister. "Hey man" he сказал(-а) "Why did Ты take so long with the phone" Monica cried 'Wh..what if Chandler was trying to call" she reached for the phone. "My cell has call waiting Mon, he didn't call" he answered softly. She looked ta him and then at the phone. She dialed Chandler's cell phone again but all it did was ring over and over again.
Chandler heard his cell phone ring. He tried to get it but when he tried to Переместить away from the window he started coughing again. It was wearing him out. He couldn't stand anymore. He slid down to the floor and loosened his tie. He reached out to grab his cell phone that had fallen on the floor. When he finally reached it the ringing stopped. He leaned back against the Стена and closed his eyes as he tried to breath. After a few минуты he struggled to pull himself up to the window. He took a deep breath right before everything went black.
"Oh my God Mr. Bing!" Courteney knelt down beside him. "Mr. Bing!" she called as she gently shook him. "H...He's barely breathing!" she cried "W…we need to get him out of here h…he needs medical attention" Steve nodded "Yeah I know but we can't the огонь is too close we have to stay put until the firefighters come" he сказал(-а) "He has a family, a wife and kids w…we can't let him die" she whimpered "I know I grew up with his wife and her brother" he answered "What do we do" she asked tearfully as she looked down at Chandler laying so still. "We wait ,we hope and we pray" he said. Just then they heard noises outside the door. "Wh…what's that" Courteney asked. "Well either the огонь fighters are out there или the огонь is" Steve answered. They all watched the door hoping it was the firefighters but scared it was the fire.
The noise was getting closer. Everyone huddled around Chandler hoping it was the firefighters they were hearing not the fire. "I think I heard voices" Courteney cried. "its the firefighters!" she said. "You know there's lots of people outside and the windows are open that might be what Ты heard" she shook her head "No Steve the voices I heard came from over there" she pointed at the door. Just then there was a knock on the door "Anyone in there" a deep voice asked. Yes!" Courteney called out as Steve opened the door. A firefighter with dark hair stood there "I'm Matthew is everyone okay" he asked. "No my boss he...he's barely breathing" she cried "Don't worry ma'am we'll get Ты all out of here and get him to a hospital"
Monica was tired of sitting she got up and began to pace nervously "Why haven't they got him out yet" she cried "Don't worry Mon they will" Ross сказал(-а) softly hugging her. "Dude do Ты think its good for her to be here" Joey whispered. "I don't care if its good или not I'm not leaving with out Chandler" she cried having heard him. "Its okay we know" Ross сказал(-а) "You should know her by now Joe she's too stubborn for her own good" She glared at him with tear filled eyes "So if it were Rachel trapped in there you'd be able to leave with out her" she asked. "No I wouldn't but " she stopped him "But nothing Ross, the Любовь of my life, my lobster, my Chandler is in there I won't leave with out him I..I can't leave with out him" she cried "Shh its okay" he whispered hugging her close again.
At that moment several firefighters emerged from the burning building with some people they'd gotten out. One of the firefighter yelled for a paramedic. Ross looked over at the scene. He saw someone he recognized. Steve was standing there with several other people. He then saw a stretcher "Oh my God" he whispered when he saw his brother in law laying on it. "What" Monica asked. She turned to look where he was looking. She saw Steve and Zack then she saw Chandler on the stretcher "Chandler!" she cried. She pulled away from him and pushed and shoved her way through the crowds. She raced towards the stretcher her husband laid on.
"Ma'am you'll need to stay back" a огонь fighter stopped her "But th...that's my husband!" she cried. "Wh…what are they doing to him, is he okay!" she asked when she saw a paramedic placing a mask over his face. The firefighter sighed softly "I'm Matthew I'm the one who got your husband out, when we got to him he was barely breathing and he was uncontious the paramedic is giving him oxygen to help him breath" she nodded "So he'll be okay" she asked "I can't really say he took in a lot of smoke and pasted out" he told her "Okay we're taking him to the скорая помощь now" the paramedic said. "I...I'm going with him" Monica cried following them.
The ride to the hospital was quiet. Monica held Chandler's hand whispering words of Любовь to him. Once they arrived at the hospital he was rushed into a trauma room and she was told to wait outside. She collapsed in a near by chair. "Oh Chandler" she whispered playing with her wedding ring "You can't leave me" she whispered. Ross and Joey came in a few минуты later "Mon Ты okay, they tell Ты anything yet" Ross asked sitting beside. "They took him in that room" she pointed to the room. "That's the trauma room" Joey stated. They both looked at him "What I did play a doctor for years, I was Dr. селезень, дрейк Ramoray" he сказал(-а) proudly. They both laughed a little.
The laughter stopped when a doctor approached them "I'm Dr. Pratt" he сказал(-а) "You must be Mrs. Bing" he looked at Monica. She nodded "Yes" she whispered 'How is he, ho…how's Chandler" she asked. Well Mrs. Bing your husband has…."
