Anonymous asked: Rumbelle. Modern AU. He finds her unconscious on the side of the road.
He wraps the poor girl in his coat and dials 911, but Gold is horrified to find that the woman isn’t even breathing properly, and doesn’t respond to his calls.
Finally, out of options, the ambulance on its way, he tries the CPR training he was given as a lad: he pumps her chest five times, and then leans down, breathes into her mouth hard and begins his compressions again, hoping to God that it isn’t too late.
The paramedics later tell him that he saved her life that day: he never learns her name, but he keeps the picture from the paper in a box somewhere, a reminder of the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen.
