Chapter 12: Care
I heard banging on the door a few minutes later as I finally pushed my attacker off of me. I also heard yelling.
I was able to land a good punch on his face, before he struck me in the stomach again. Spitting out blood, I rolled over and was met with a kick to my back. I latched onto the bed frame for support.
I noticed that a lot of blood covered my hands. I was dragged back by my hair as he prepared to aim his foot for my face. Fear was dead set in my brown eyes. The door was finally busted down and in stormed a police officer, a doctor, and Aaron who immediately went for the attacker.
He punched the crap out of him right in his face. Then, he was out cold. I was shocked, dang was Aaron strong! He was obviously very angry as the police guy had to pull him off my attacker. While he was calming himself down, a nurse who heard the commotion came in and immediately checked my Vital Signs. I didn't hear what the results were; I unfortunately passed out at the time.
The nurse was telling me about her Vital Signs, which were out of normal range a bit. But my only concern was getting her to safety. I picked her up bridal style and carried her out of the room. I noticed she was bloody. Her head was bleeding in a few areas; she had blood on her hands and her mouth and chin. Her shoulder looked like it was dislocated and I prayed she had no broken bones.
While heading to the x-ray room, the police passed me with the still unconscious man. His mask was removed and I had to contain my anger for me not to drop the women in my arms. Two officers were dragging him away to the vehicle.
I forced myself to focus on Christina's priorities first. I had a nurse lay her on the exam table as I took a few pictures of her. I wasn't happy with the results but they were repairable. She had two broken ribs, a dislocated shoulder, and I prayed that she didn't have brain damage when she woke up. I did a catscan on her just be sure and relieved. She must've hard a hard head or something.
I sighed in frustration as worry hit me. I didn't let it show on my face, but I was really worried about her. I would be doing her surgery immediately after the nurses cleaned her up. I was going to have to have a talk with Shelby. My gut told me she had something to do with the incident.
I began the surgery with only a few specific nurses and another doctor helping me. Later, she was cleaned, bandaged up and resting in a private room.
After finishing my other surgical procedures and everything else on the menu, I was sitting by Christina's beside. She has only been out for three hours and should be waking up any moment now.
Her eyelids fluttered open as she adjusted her vision to the area. She instantly sat up as if she was on high alert. I stood up immediately. "Hey, it's alright, no one is here. Just us." I said while helping her in a more comfortable position. She relaxed soon afterward.
"What happened after I passed out?" She asked looking directly at me. After explaining what had occurred, her face was in shock. "No way, it was Mark? Wow." She replied.
She had told me about how she received an emergency message, found Shelby with a bruise on her face, and was physically attacked by him. She hung her head and shuddered at the memory.
My alarm on my cell went off and I checked it to see that our shifts were over. Just then Doctor Reys, who was the supervisor over Christina, Shelby and I walked in. "Good your awake. I'm sorry for what happened to you. The police have arrested him. I already covered your police report." he put a comforting hand on her shoulder.
"Don't worry this will not affect your grade, please rest until you can return to work." He smiled and then left us alone. "Ah yes, both of your shifts are done for the night. Good night and great work."
About ten minutes later, Christina was ready to get home. Her dislocated left shoulder had already been popped back into place. Her apartment was walking distance from the hospital. We walked side by side while she leaned on me a little for support. Just then my cell phone rang breaking our silence.
"Hello?" I said. I mentally sighed because it was Shelby. It was still dark outside, so I kept Christina as close as possible by wrapping an arm around her.
"Hi babe. Where are you?" She asked and she was loud enough to where even Christina hears her.
"Out. I want to talk to you tomorrow." I finally said after a long time. She went on and on about her day. "I feel there are some things that need to be said." I kept the anger out of my voice, or at least tried to.
"Sounds good-"She yelled in a cheerful tone as I cut her off by hanging up the phone. I even deleted her number out of the phone. She was in for it tomorrow.
"I saw the bruises and swelling on Marks face. You got him pretty good." I told her wanting to start a conversation. She giggled. She seemed to brighten up a bit.
"I was really worried about you. When I saw you in that state, I was furious. He wasn't about to get away with hurting you." My tone was seething with anger. I raised my hand up as I got ready to punch the fence next to us. I couldn't help it, I was angry. But on a side note I was glad the police had got him. I can't believe he did that to her.
Christina stopped to embrace me from the behind. I had instantly relaxed. She was great at doing things like keeping the peace from what I've seen during our years of school together.
"Thanks for caring about me so much Aaron. But don't injure your hand for my sake." She let go as I turned around to face her. "You are my best friend." She smiled wide and I could see that she was blushing a bit.
"You're welcome and if I had to injure my hand, I would but only for you." I winked. She quickly lowered her head as she blushed again. I loved seeing her like that. Looking so sweet and innocent.
We made it to her apartment building and she unlocked the door. Jack and Rose were still asleep in the Master bedroom. We took off our shoes and put them on the light green rug. I locked the door and went to grab us some apple juice. After pouring two small glasses, I found her in the guest room making a pallet for me. She of course would sleep on the futon.
I grabbed a large blanket and pillow for her from the closet nearby. She went into the living room as she quickly changed into her black and white PJs. I changed into a pair of boxers and plain t-shirt before she came back.
After drinking our juice, I took the dishes to the kitchen and decided to wash them in the morning.
"Time for bed." I said as I laid down and yawned. "Even though it's late for this, you don't mind me staying the night?" I asked just because I wanted to hear her response.
"You're welcome anytime Aaron. You never told me about what happened between you and Shelby—"She replied as she got in her spot on the futon.
"Shelby isn't my concern right now. You are." I told her as I watched her fall asleep with a smile on her face.
Shelby has the best present I'm going to give her tomorrow, she certainly won't forget it.
I just so happened to glance out of my window when I was closing the curtains in my hotel room and I thought I seen a young woman that looked familiar. Hmm, she appeared to have dark brown hair. And the young man seemed familiar as well.
I had closed the curtains and dimmed the lights as I was trying not to be too obvious. They both had on some type of colored uniform. I wonder where they were working. And who leaves or goes to work at six thirty in the morning? Surely at least eight is better.
It sickly reminded me of my dear Rose and that rodent Jack who might I add needed to be squashed like the little insect he was. I had seen both of them go into a very nice looking apartment building that was only a few blocks away. I couldn't see inside the building, so that ruined my chances at finding out what number they stayed in. This just would not do, not at all. I have to get someone to track those two very soon.
In the next chapter, we see how Cal and his buddies are dealing jail time. XD
