Chapter 1: Hospital
I walked through the doors of the hospital, tears still fresh on my cheek. Elizabeth and George had returned last night. They told me I should go to see Violet and Rose as soon as possible. I knew my fear and anxiety were showing clear as day.
I heard the beep of monitors as I walked down the halls. I was headed for the ICU. The shallow breaths that were all that I could take were only making me dizzier. I needed to appear calm, but I was anything but and still, I only had myself to blame.
I came to the ICU, and pushed the button next to the door. A young doctor came to let me in. When he saw me, he knew exactly who I was here to see. He smiled at me solemnly, and then led me to Rose’s room.
She lay still in the hospital bed as the monitors beeped. She didn’t stir, and she didn’t wake. She hadn’t awakened as of yet, and no one was saying much of anything about that. A cry escaped my lips, and I put one hand over my mouth and wiped away the tears. I sat down and stared at her. I should have saved her. I should have pulled the both of them out of that fire the moment I saw them, but hate and anger clouded my common sense.
She looked beautiful as she lay there. That was not to say she got out of the house unburned. If she didn’t make it… it killed me to say those words, it made my stomach churn, but unfortunately, I knew that was a possibility. I would find Sienna, I would find my father, and I would kill them both. Hazel might just get some mercy. I got up from the chair next to her, but before I could walk out the door, I had to stop and stare.
