A good Jay to die/

Katrina wheeled around and thrust the phial into Jade’s hands.
“Now! Do it!”
“I can’t just administer something when I don’t know what it is, it could kill him!”
“He’s going to die in minutes if you don’t!”
Jade turned the phial over in her hands for a moment before getting to her feet.
“You’re right…we’re way past being careful now..”
She got up and strode across the ward toward the room where Jay lay comatose.
“Sorry, Kat, I’m going to have to ask you to leave so Phi and I can work…”
“I’m not going anywhere…” Katrina said. “Not after everything we’ve been through to get this”
Jade nodded. She hadn’t expected anything else. “Ok…sure” She scrubbed up and entered Jay’s room.
Katrina paced up and down the room for what seemed like hours, but had only been a few minutes, Jade and Phi working feverishly to prepare Jay to receive the cure.
After what seemed like a lifeline, Jade watched as the black liquid drained from the syringe and into Jays lower spine.
“It’s done” she said after a few seconds “Now, we wait. It shouldn’t take long” she and Phi rolling Jay onto his back.
The room was silent for a few minutes, except for the repetitive ‘boop, boop, boop’ of Jays life support machine.
That was until Phi spoke.
“Erm..Jade…we have a problem….”
Jade glanced over at the monitors.
“He’s going into to cardiac arrest!” She yelled, grabbing the defibrillator off its charging cradle on the wall.
“Can you save him?” Katrina asked, panicked, as Jade administered the first jolt to Jay’s chest.
“I don’t know…his body’s giving up…he might not be strong enough…”
She jolted Jay again.
And again.
And again.
“…….Jade?” squeaked Katrina, her eyes filling with tears.
Jade threw the defibrillator aside in frustration, before composing herself.
“I’m sorry Kat….there…was nothing we could have done..it was…too late.”
Katrina fell to her knees, and sobbed.
