I wanted to write another Mondler story but I couldn't decide about what.
So I finally decided to write about them in college.
The story starts after they bring Chandler to the hospital in 1988 Thanksgiving.
I don't own Friends, but I wish I did.
Monica, Ross, Rachel, Judy and Jack are in the waiting room, waiting for news about Chandler's operation. Ross and Judy are screaming at Monica for cutting Chandler's toe.
Until the doctor come to the room, seeing them screaming, he clears his voice and everyone look at him. Ross comes running and asks:
"So, how is he?"
"He's fine. He's recovering. He has to spend the night."
"When can we see him?" Monica asks, relieve from the fact that he's fine.
"He's already in the room. Follow me." And the doctor indicates them the way to the room and says "He must wake up in a little."
They all sit in the chairs. Ross is sitting in the chair next to Chandler's bed. And the others are sitting in the others chairs more far away from the bed. Rachel is telling to Monica something about her boyfriend, but Mon is simply ignoring, just looking at Chandler, hoping that he wakes up fast and to have some time alone with him , for her to explain what just happened. But now she remembers how can she explain? What she says that she liked him, and then he called her fat, so she wanted revenge, she would sound like a little girl. Then she ears a voice, Chandler's voice, he was trying to speak; so she decides that she will know at to say when she has to do it, and she stands up and comes close and they are finally ear him talking
"Where... Where am I?"
And Ross answers: "Dude, you are at the hospital, you were spending Thanksgiving at my house."
"Yes, I remember, but what happened?"
And so Monica says: "I'm so sorry, Chandler." Saying this, she picked his hand but then she catch Ross's eyes and fast let his hand go. And in that moment she come to the conclusion that she didn't want to let go of his hand and she can't really figure out why. She is waken up for her daydream from some noise coming from Ross's belly and with Chandler asking if they had eaten. And finally their parents talk for the first time, saying that they had to rush to bring him to the hospital and since then they're there. And Chandler answers like this:
"Go eat and go home. I'm fine here, just come picking me up tomorrow." Saying this to everybody and the last part directly for Ross, who answers:
At the same time, everybody starts to go for the door, no, not Monica. She stays in the same place, so Rachel asks her: "Mon, are you coming?"
"I'll be there, I just want to talk to Chandler first, if that's ok with him?"
Chandler asks that it's ok and so Rachel before going says:
"Ok, Mon. Can I bring you anything to eat."
"Yes, please. The same as you."
And with that Rachel exits the room, leaving Chandler and Monica alone.
Monica sits in the chair next to Chandler's bed, where Ross was previously sitting. When she sits, she puts her hands on his bed and he immediately takes hers on his. And let a reconforting smile.
And Monica, who is still looking down, just says: "I'm sorry."
"Don't be just tell me what happened?"
"I don't know how to tell you. It's a big story."
"I have time." And he squeezes her hand. "And start from the beginning."
"Ok. Last year I heard you."
"Heard me. Saying what?"
"You don't remember."
"You call me fat. You said you didn't want to be stuck there with Ross's fat sister."
"Oh my god... I'm so sorry. You weren't suppose to ear that..."
"Yes, that's what everyone says. They can call me fat if I don't listen." And she starts to cry.
"Mon. Wait. Can I call you Mon?" She nods and continues: "I'm so sorry. That's why you lose weight?"
"Yes. But not in the way. It was because you didn't know me and your impression of me was just that I was fat..."
"Stop there, Mon." He left her head, for her eyes to be facing his, and he says in his most soft voice. "That's not true. I'm not going to lie to you, you were fat. But that wasn't what I saw. I saw an intelligent woman, the most confident woman I ever met, because you never hide, you always walk with pride and confident and I saw a sweet girl who make a great macaroni and cheese." And she let a little chuckle. "See I make you laugh." And he pulls her for a hug and she relax in his chest and says:
"Thanks, Chandler. That really make me fell better." And she isn't just talking about what he said but also about being in his arms, she fells safe, as nothing can hurt her.
"I know that I'm your stupid brother's roommate, but you can always talk to me, that I will understand and if you want I won't tell your brother. And when I call you fat, it wasn't for hurt you, because I know how it fells to have people talking behind our back." And she just says, this simple words: "Thanks. And I will."
Then they ear a knock in the door, she stands up and sees that it's Ross to say goodbye to Chandler and to say to Monica that is time to go. She exits the room but not before taking one last look at Chandler. And in that moment they both fell something like shills passing all over their body, but they couldn't figure out why.
I really hope you like it. I loved writing it.
I'm sorry if there is any mistakes, but english isn't my maternal language.
And please review.
