Terri awoke unaware of where she was. There was a sharp pain in her side as she breathed. She heard the soft patter of rain against a window and was aware of a light beeping sound coming from next to the bed. She was also aware of a quiet snore like sound coming from the chair next to her.

She couldn't make out the face of her visitor, but had a good idea of who it was. Stiles. She didn't know were she was, or what was going on, but she was glad he was here. She heard movement outside and voices that sounded familiar. Tom Gage, Jackson Haisley, Carl Reese, and a voice that she didn't recognize. She heard the doorknob turn and someone enter. She kept her eyes closed so that who ever entered wouldn't know she was awake.

"Stiles. Stiles, it's time to get up, we need to go." She heard Carl say as he shook Stiles' sleeping form.

"Alright, alright. Do we have to go now? Terri's not even awake." Stiles replied standing from his position next to Terri's bed.

"Yes. We're in danger, we need move again."

"Ok. Can I least ride with her?"

"That's not up to me Stiles."

"Ok. So where's Dr. Moore?" Stiles asked Carl as they walked towards the door.

"He's outside with Gage and Jackson."

"Good, maybe they can help convince him to help me out." Stiles said, exiting the room, followed by Carl.

She could hear voices being raised and could tell Stiles was pissed about something.

"We have to tell her!" Gage yelled.

"Not yet!" Stiles yelled back. "Give her some time."

"She's going to wonder why we have to keep moving."

"Well let her wonder. She's been through enough as it is." Jackson replied, sounding just as pissed as Stiles.

"We need to move; Quinn has our position and is on his way." Carl said hanging up his cell phone and joining the group in the hallway.

"He's going to personally see to it that she's dead."

"We'll move, but you're not telling her yet." Stiles said motioning for the doctors to get Terri ready. "And I'm riding with her; I don't care what you have to say either."

"But..." Gage tried to reply before being cut off by Stiles.

"No!" Stiles said walking towards the door, followed by Jackson and Carl.

"Stiles we need somewhere to go. Somewhere safe." Jackson said as they stopped in the parking lot so the doctors could load Terri into the ambulance.

"We'll go to my uncle's cottage." Stiles replied as he stopped next to Jackson.

"Where is it? Is it safe?" Carl asked.

"It's in Colonial Beach and yes, it's safe."

"Get Lex to get the address. We'll head there when we're all ready."

"Alright, Stiles stay with Terri in case she wakes up." Jackson said dialing Lex's number.

Stiles got in the ambulance and saw one of the nurses talking to Terri.

"Stiles." Terri coughed out.

"Hey. How you feel?" He asked taking her hand in his.

"Tired." She managed to get out before going into a coughing fit.

"It's okay Terri, take it easy."

"Terri, try to take it easy. You've been unconscious for almost two days." The nurse said checking Terri's vitals.

"Terri, do you remember anything?"

"A little." She answered in a voice not much higher than a whisper.

"Nurse, could you give us a minute?" Stiles asked. "And could you get Mr. Haisley for me please?"

"Of course." The nurse replied, stepping outside.

"Thanks."

"Stiles what's up?" Jackson asked while getting in the back of the ambulance. "Terri, you're awake. How do you feel?"

"Sore, tired." Terri answered.

"Terri, what exactly do you remember?" Stiles asked.

"A farm. Than I saw you and I remember Joshua being there." Terri answered as tears came to her eyes. "Stiles where's Joshua? What happened?"

"It's okay Terri." Stiles said while wiping the tears from her face and eyes.

"Stiles, conference." Jackson said pointing outside.

"I'll be right back okay?"

"Okay." Terri answered tears still in her eyes.

"What is it Jackson?" Stiles asked once they were outside.

"She doesn't remember what happened. She doesn't remember about Joshua either." Jackson answered.

"And."

"Stiles, that's good. She doesn't need to know what happened just yet."

"I know. Jackson what are we going to do?"

"Right now, we're going to be there for her, especially you. We need to stay brave and aware for her. If Quinn wants to find us he will."

"I know. How we going to stop him?"

"Gage is working on it."

"I don't trust him. He knew what was going on and didn't do anything about it."

"Stiles don't worry about it. Right now Terri needs you to be there for her. She doesn't need you worrying about Gage. That's Carl's job, okay."

"Okay."

"Alright, go find out if she remembers anything else and let me know."

"Will do." Stiles answered getting back in the ambulance. "Terri, you alright?"

"Yeah, just a little tired, that's all." Terri answered.

"Terri what else do you remember?" Stiles asked, taking a hold of Terri's hand and gently squeezing it.

"Not much. Stiles, why isn't Joshua here?"

"He's, busy."

"Oh. What's going on, why are we in the back of an ambulance?"

"You were shot. We need to get you somewhere safe." Terri stared at him blankly. "Basically we're on the run. Are you sure you don't remember anything?"

"Positive. Who are we running from?"

"I can't tell you that yet."

"Stiles we're ready to go." Carl yelled from outside.

"Alright. Terri I'll be right back okay?"

"Okay."

"Did you get in touch with Lex?" Stiles asked once outside.

"Yeah, he got the address and said he would keep us posted." Replied Carl.

"Good. Can I ride with her doc?"

"Yeah, go ahead." The doctor answered getting in the front of the ambulance.

"You ready Terri?" Stiles asked getting in the ambulance followed by Jackson.

"Yeah." She replied reaching for Stiles' hand.

"It's alright Terri, I'm here." He said taking her hand and sitting down on the bench next to her bed. "We'll be there soon, don't worry. Just hang in there okay."

"Okay." She replied, her eyes filling up with tears.

"It's okay, everything will be fine, I promise." He said wiping away her tears and brushing a strand of hair from her face. "I promise."
