I gain speed every time my feet hit the ground. The distinctive smell of hospital antiseptic assaults my nose the second the sliding doors open. I need to get to Roan, and fast.
My heart had stuttered when I answered my brother’s phone and heard Mila’s cracking voice. Puk’s ol’lady had called to tell Deeds that her little sister, Roan, had been attacked. She was taken to the hospital and the doctors had said it was bad. Mila and her husband were still three hours away, stuck in traffic and they’d called my brother for assistance. No one is there for her.
Fuck that. I am. My ass was on my bike the very next second, and I broke damn near every traffic law on the books to cross town in record time.
Swiveling my head from left to right, I scan the place for a fucking nurse. There’s one tucked behind the desk so I step close and lean in.
“Roan Bayrells. What room is she in?”
The nurse eyes my cut. “And you, sir are?”
Shit. They’re not gonna let me in if I say friend or what the fuck ever. Without blinking I snap, “Husband.”
The nurse shoots me a strange look. “Husband? That’s not what…”
I don’t allow her time to question me. “Yeah, it’s new.” It’s new? I’m a fucking idiot. “A Vegas thing, we hopped in that boat a few days ago so we haven’t had time to change everything, okay?”
She nods and taps a few keys. After scanning her computer screen she looks back at me and says, “She was brought in a few hours ago. It took some time to contact her sister since she was the first on the list. I’ve just paged the doctor. He’ll be right… Oh, there he is.”
Her gaze is fixed over my shoulder, so I follow her line of sight and see a young dude, who looks more like a fucking teenager than a doctor, striding through the corridor.
His hand extends toward me. “Good afternoon, I’m Doctor Williams. You’re Mrs. Bayrells’ husband?”
“Yes, sir,” I croak. Fuck, that sounds so fucking right and I haven’t even seen the girl.
