Previously: Dawson and Joey have just been attacked. Read the first two stories, it would make more sense.

We Can Get Through This Part 2


"But they haven't arrived yet. Sorry if I scared you. They should be here any minute."

The Leery's and Bessie let out a sigh of relief. Just as they sat down, Dawson is wheeled past them into a room. Then they see Pacey running with Joey into a room.

"God, what's wrong with Joey?" Bessie asks frantically.

Just then Pacey walks out of the room Joey is in.

"Pacey, what's wrong with Joey?" Bessie asks.

"Well, actually, she wanted me to come out and get you," Pacey replies.

"How is she, Pacey?" Bessie asks.

"She's cool. Other than a few broken bones she's fine. But emotionally, I don't know."

"Thanks, Pace, thank you for being there for her."

"No prob," he replies.


Finally, he thinks, done with all those x-rays.

"Dawson, honey," Mr. and Mrs. Leery say while entering the room,"How are you?"

"How do I look?" Dawson says sarcastically."I'm just joking, I'm feeling much better now. Just a broken arm and a few cracked ribs. But other than that, I am fine."

"Well, we're just glad that you guys are okay."

"Speaking of us, how's Joey?" Dawson asks.

"We really don't know. Last we heard was that she wanted Bessie with her while they ran some tests."

"Do you think I could see her? I mean, I'm done in here, so could you help me over to her?"

"Sure, Dawson, let's go," Mr. Leery says.

Mr. Leery puts his arm around Dawson and helps him walk.


"Jo?" Bessie asks.

"Oh, Bessie, thank god you're here. I can't stand being alone during all of this," Joey says nervously.

"God, Jo, who could have done this to you guys?"

"I don't know. I'm glad they didn't ra....you know what I mean," she says, choking up.

"Jo, don't cry. I'm sorry I brought it up. Come on we'll get through these tests and let Dawson in to see you."

"Sounds good,"Joey says.

They did a number of tests. Even though Joey says she wasn't raped, they test her to make sure. She is pretty tired after all she'd been through and wants to go home. Next thing she hears is a knocking at the door.

"Come in." Joey says.

"Hey, Jo, how are you?"

Joey just stares at him and tears well up in her eyes. Dawson is hurt so badly, and all she has are scrapes and bruises. He had risked his life for her. She can't help it, she breakes down in tears.

"Jo, what's wrong?" Dawson asks, very worried.

"It's just...it's just that you risked your life to save me, and you got hurt so badly," Joey says, now sobbing.

"Jo, you know I would risk anything to save you. I'm just glad that you're okay."

Joey just smiled and ran to Dawson and gave him a hug.

"OOHH, Jo, don't squeeze that hard."


"I have a few cracked ribs and they are very sore."

This makes Joey cry even harder.

"Jo, please don't cry. Jo, the reason I saved you is because I love you. You're my best friend in the whole world. If anything ever happened to you, I wouldn't be able to live. You're my everything, Jo, you complete me," Dawson says with tears welling up in his eyes.

Joey just stands there, shocked.

"Dawson, I never thought I would be able to love you any more then I already do. But after you said that, my love for you just grew a billion times bigger," Joey says running up to Dawson and giving him a big, but careful, hug.

"I am so happy that you are okay, Jo. I love you."

"I love you, too. More than you'll ever know," Joey says.

Tthey just stand there holding each other so tight. Then someone knocks on the door.

"Dawson...Joey?" Pacey asks.

Dawson and Joey break apart to see Pacey starring at them.

"So you guys, are you all right?"

"Yeah, I'm fine, just a few scrapes and bruises,"Joey says.

"I'm not so bad either, just a broken arm and a few cracked ribs. I could have been a lot worse."

"Yeah it could've been. Well I was told to come and get you guys," Pacey says.

Dawson and Joey let go of each other and start to walk out. Joey leavs first and Dawson stops Pacey.

"Pace, how can i ever thank you. You are such a great friend. All I can say is thank you for being there for me and Joey," Dawson says.

"No prob, D. I mean you and Jo mean so much to me. And if I lost you guys, I don't know what I would do,"Pacey says, giving Dawson a hug. "Let's go."

Dawson and his parents had left and Bessie, Joey and Pacey were leaving.when they got to Joey's house. Pacey walks them to the door.

"Pacey, I just want to say thank you. You are a great friend. I am so glad to have a friend like you. I love you, man." Joey says pulling him into a hug.

"Like I said to Dawson, you guys mean so much to me. I was glad to help. And I love ya too, Jo," Pacey says.

"Well, it's getting late, Pace. See you in school on Monday."

"Bye, Jo." Pacey says.


With that Pacey is off to his house.


Joey is exhausted. She showers before going to bed. She has to get all the gross feeling off her. She can't believe how good she is taking all that happened. Maybe because they didn't rape me, I feel a little different, she thinks. She is too tired to think and just konks out.


12:15 a.m.

Run, Run, Get away from them. Faster, they're going to get you. NOOOO!
