Chapter 69

Wilson hurried through the ER doors to find the hallways consumed with complete chaos. It was another busy night. He quickly spied Lisa walking towards him through the hoards of people.

"Where is she?" He quickly asked.

"Last curtain on the right." Lisa answered.

"Have you talked to her?" Wilson asked.

"Only for a minute. She's conscious." Lisa glanced around curiously. "Where's House."

Wilson stopped outside the green curtain that enclosed Cameron. "He should be here. I talked to him over twenty minutes ago."

"I'll give him a call." She said as she placed her hand on Wilson's shoulder.

Wilson glanced at Lisa's hand but quickly shrugged off the butterflies in his chest and stepped behind the curtain.

He quickly assessed the situation and saw several nurses and residents tending to Cameron. He stepped closer to the bed. Her eyes were closed and her flawless face was now bruised and swollen. Anger filled Wilson as he thought about someone hurting her. He bent over and whispered in her ear. "Hello beautiful."

Cameron opened her eyes to see Wilson's sweet smile. "Wilson." She whispered.

Wilson saw her eyes scan the room and he knew who she was looking for. "He's on his way."

A tear rolled down Cameron's cheek.

Wilson told the resident standing next to him what tests he wanted ordered and for Cameron to be taken to x-ray.

"I'll be up there in a minute." He assured her as he stepped out to look for Lisa, who was at the counter talking to detective Hodges.

Hodges and Lisa stopped talking when they saw Wilson walking towards them.

"How is she?" Hodges asked with concern.

"We won't know until we run tests and take x-rays. Do we know if there was any sexual assault? Did anyone ask her?"

"Not yet. I was waiting until we had her somewhere more private." Lisa answered.

"God, I hope she wasn't raped." Wilson added. "Did you call House?" He asked Lisa.

"Yes but it went to voice-mail."

Wilson glanced at his watch. "It's been over forty minutes since I talked to him."

Hodges saw the concerned look on Wilson and Lisa faces. "Tell you what. Why don't I run by House's apartment and see what the hold up is."

Wilson let out a long sigh. "That would be great. Something just doesn't feel right."

Hodges nodded. "If there's one thing I understand, it's a gut feeling. Have either one of you seen my partner."

Both Lisa and Wilson shook their heads no.

"He's probably trying to pick up on one of these nurses. If House shows up, one of you call me." Hodges said as he walked away.

"We will." Wilson said, then turned to Lisa. "I'm going up to see Cameron."
