My eyes grew wide as the realization of what Dr. Marsh just said to me sunk in. two friends went into surgery and only one made it out alive! I knew one of them had to be Kyle. We did our best to make sure his wound was closed but as far as I knew he was the only one hurt. Who the fuck died! “Dr. Marsh. I only knew of one of my friends who was hurt so let us start with the good news first. Who made it out of surgery?”Dr. Marsh looked at me with pity in his eyes. I did not like the way he was looking at me it made feel uneasy like he was about to tell me my word was over. Which I guess could be possible if the person he told me died was Shane. It could not be him! I hated not knowing what happened and I could not take much more of this. If it was the love of my life, I do not think I would ever be able to bring myself to get out of the hospital bed.“Miss White, I apologize I thought you knew about both your friends. Who would you like to hear about first?” Dr. Marsch asked me sadly.
Dr. Marsh and i exchanged looks before he told me to go lock myself in the bathroom. like that was going to fucking happen! There was currently someone inside the hospital shooting at people or something of that nature. There was no way i was going to stay here like a sitting duck. I sat up and slid off the bed. I located a bag in one of the chairs with my cell phone, socks, and shoes. I pulled out and put on the socks and shoes than I tried calling Shane. The phone just went to voicemail. The same thing when I called Natasha than Tony. I figured I would try calling Kyle even though I knew it was a long shot since he just had surgery. I was very surprised when he answered on the second ring in a very hushed voice. “Miss Emma! You are okay! Thank the Gods. I would ask about the babies and your health but right now we got a problem. Did you hear those gun shots and those people yelling?” Kyle asked me in one breath. I rolled my eyes and said, “Of course I heard it. I’m in the surgery w
Kyle and I took an immediate left and half walked have sprinted down to the elevators. Not surprising they were turned off. It makes sense that they would deactivate them with an active shooter on the premises. It Would be harder for them to get to a different floor. We headed over to the door for the stairs and headed through. Neither of us knew exactually which floor the NICU was on, so we decided to go to the highest level and work our way down. Along the way we stopped so Kyle could smash the glass on the fire ax box that was in each stairwell. He took the ax and led us the rest of the way up the steps. We went through the access door once we reach the top and walked through. We found ourselves in a hallway with doors every six feet or so on each side. I walked up to one of them an read the plaque on the wall. “LAB NUMBER THREE: REASEARCH AND DEVELEPOMENT”. Since the entire hall had these same type of rooms, we decided this was the wrong floor and there were no patients up here, s
Of course, it would be her. Who else is psychotic enough to start a shooting rampage through a fucking hospital. I was positive she knew I was here, and she was looking for me. “Kyle, can you see anyone else out there?” I asked not really wanting to know the answer but knowing I had to. Kyle moved his head as far left as he could while still being able to see out of the small rectangular window. “There are a few people lying on the floor. It does not appear that anyone is hurt. Ruby is out there pointing the gun at people and yelling but I can not hear her through the door. Holy shit! This is so fucked. Miss Emma, I do not want to alarm you, but Shane Tony and Natasha are out there!Natasha:Hello again dear reader. I know I said you would not be hearing from me again, however when I wrote that we thought everything was coming to an end and that I would not have anything to tell you that Emma could not. We were very wrong on that front seeing as while Ruby came into the hospital firin
We all began yelling at detective Morris that he just shot Detective Wilcox. “No, no, no! I did not mean it. Jennifer, please tell me you are ok. Jennifer, please answer me!” Detective Morris screamed out in desperation. I called out and said I was going to crawl over and check on her. He gave me the go ahead and I slowly began crawling over to Jennifer being cautious as to not make the detective trigger happy again.When I made my way over to her I first checked her pulse and looked for where she had been hit. “She is unconscious and has a very thready pulse. You struck her once in the chest and once in the torso. You need to get someone in here now to get her and Emma to the hospital. We also have a third person who is injured. He got struck with shrapnel when the explosion happened out the back door.” I said hoping he would understand how urgent this matter was.“Officer down, I repeat officer down. We need two more ambulances aside for the one for Detective Wilcox we have two civi
Emma:“I know what you are going to say Kyle, but we have to go out there. After all we both know she is here for me, and I am afraid of what she will do if I don’t show up.” I said to Kyle trying to convince him how important this decision was. Kyle sighed and turned his head towards me. “I know you are right but that does not mean I have to like it. The only way I will be comfortable with allowing you to go out there is if you stay behind me understood?”I shook my head at Kyle in disbelief. “You know as well as I do that will not work. She will kill you without a second thought to get to me. Look I have a better idea. I know she is going to talk my ear off before she does anything at all. I want you to go back up these stairs to the second floor and make your way to the other staircase. Once there come back down to this level and come in through the other entrance. My cousin’s eyes will be on me, and she will not see you sneaking up on her. What do you think?”Kyle told me that was
I knew I had to start talking to Ruby to try and distract her so Kyle could sneak up on her and take her out. “I am really glad you find your psychotic ways so amusing. I mean someone has to think you will get out of this unscathed and why not let it be yourself. After all you have been through so much in these past few months. You lost Shane to a better woman, you murdered your own child, lost your second family, destroyed your career, and so much more but hey at least you can stand there with a grin on your face and be completely content!”Ruby’s face turned into a scowl I guess she didn’t like her short comings being thrown in her face. That was good I wanted to piss her off, so all her focus was on me. She didn’t even seem to realize as I was talking that Shane, Tony, and Natasha started slowly moving away from each other and their current position to situate themselves around her so we could cover her in a five point angle. Ruby stood there momentarily at a loss of what to say to
After I jumped on Ruby’s back everything seemed to be moving in slow motion but at the same time it felt like everything was sped up. I know, I know that seems really confusing, but it was like the world around me was one big blur of movement while it seemed to take me a lifetime to knock her to the ground though my guess is it took mere seconds.Three things happened simultaneously. Ruby fell, her gun went off, and I knew someone had been shot because I was now covered in red specks of blood all over my arms and I could feel them on my face as well. The smell of rust and salt invaded my nostril and made me feel queasy. I couldn’t let it get to me however or Ruby might wind up with the upper hand.I struggled to grab her arms and pull them behind her back. For a small chick she was stronger than she looked, not to mention I just had surgery and my incision from the c-section hurt immensely. Finally, someone noticed how much trouble I was having and came over and kicked Ruby square in
