Once at the hospital, I was taken immediately to surgery to extract all six bullets from my chest. Due to the fact that dude had been shooting as a fact of being shot himself, none of the bullets hit my heart or any other vital organs. Once out of surgery, the doctor went to talk to everyone in the waiting room. Raisa saw the doctor first.
"How is she?"
"She'll be fine, just as soon as she wakes up. None of the bullets hit her heart or any other vital organs so she should be out of the hospital in just a few days. However she will be sore for quite a while so no overexertions. This means no work that doesn't involve a desk. Sorry."
"No problem doc. She'll be on a desk until you can medically clear her."
Beep, Beep, Beep.
"Ahhh…another patient, I'm sorry I've got to go. I'm on an E.R. surgical rotation today. You may go in and see her if you'd like."
"Thanks again doc."
Raisa went in first. I was awake and she gave me a slight "air" hug. Then she sat down and told me how my family was doing.
"Tay is alright, although she kinda won't talk to anybody. Not even me. Nipi has been given medication for the medication she wasn't able to take while in captivity. Little Robe is doing better. Aleshanee has siad that he woke up this morning, right after the girls were brought into the Emergency Room. We're thinking he meant to wake up when the girls were found and they were safe. Do you think it's the reason?"
The confused look on my face said something was wrong. Raisa stood up and left the room.
"Are you okay?" Ziva asked.
"She's confused. She didn't understand what I was saying. It was like…like she didn't know who I was."
"How can that be possible?"
"I don't know, but I think we should get Aleshanee down here."
"I think your right." Gibbs interrupted, hearing what Raisa had said.
"McGee go get Aleshanee."
"She's already here, Boss."
Dow looks like she doesn't know who I am. Do you know why?"
"She's gone back into her protective shell. There was a reason she asked to be brought back to the states. Our father not only murdered Ziva's brother, but also managed to assault my sister. She's gone back to before that incident. It was always safer for her to be away from our father on a mission. The mission he killed Ziva's brother, he raped her, then made it look like Ziva's brother did it and shot her in the chest. The bullet lodged 10" into her heart. She never forgave our father for what he did. In her 'protective shell,' she was able to...well your going to think I'm crazy, but she was able to relive the day our father raped her, the day Ziva's brother was killed by our father."
"Can she really relive the day my brother was killed?" Ziva asked.
"Yes, but let me talk to her first. You can watch through the window. Where's the doctor?"
"He's coming around the corner now."
"Doctor, you, you took the bullets out of my sister. Did you take a bullet out of her heart?"
"Yes, we did. Why do you ask?"
"Because the other doctor said that if they ever took the bullet out she'd die from internal bleeding and they wouldn't be able to do anything about it."
"That may have been then, but this is now. There is no internal bleeding and we will monitor your sisters' condition as long as she is in the hospital. I was just coming to see you."
"Well I'm here now. And I aim on talking to my sister with the others looking on. Is that alright?"
"I need to talk to you in private."
"Come with me."
The doctor and Aleshanee walked out of the hallway and into his office. The doctor shut he door.
"What did you need to talk to me about?"
"Your sisters' doctor is dead and you are next. He left the E.R. and I grabbed him and pulled him into a closet. You're never going to see your sister or kid or husband again. I'll see you on the other side."
"Excuse me. What the FUCK is your FUCKING problem? Are you FUCKING insane? Do you even have a FUCKING medical license? What the FUCK? Get the FUCK off of me, you FUCKING FUCKHEAD?" Aleshanee screamed, which got everyone's attention. Ziva and Gibbs were in the office, guns drawn within minutes. The man backed off.
(AN- if you can tell, she's only swearing to get everyone's attention as to not get anyone else injured.)
