I don’t own DC Universe or Twilight. Please read and then leave your review.
She scoots back in the bed as the doctor enters the room.
“How are we feeling today?”
“Just a bit jittery and sore.”
The tall older salt and pepper haired doctor nodded. He pushed up his thick black glasses that reminded her of her Uncle Jim’s. He wore them occasionally. The man picked up one of the visitor chairs. He had a clipboard with him and was flipping through some notes.
“Ms. Gordon you are on the verge of kidney failure. Have you noticed any signs leading to this?”
Bella’s heart raced at his words.
“I’m afraid the pills your doctor prescribed are the reason.”
“Are we talking both my kidneys?”
“I’m afraid so. The urine specimen taken showed signs of kidney disease. So we ran a few more tests and sure enough it was concluded. It is important that you take extra precautions from here. A study diet, plenty of fluids, and taking extra precaution in what medications you take now. We need to find a way to lighten the strain on your kidneys. Now I’m going to give you this booklet on how to do that. Ms. Gordon… I cannot express enough how important it is that you follow these guidelines. Your life could very well depend on it. Your right side was worse off than that of the left.”
Bella pinches the bridge of her nose.
“You can get through this. You just will be living somewhat of a stricter lifestyle.”
“Is this something that’s permanent?”
“I’m afraid in your case… it may very well be. You’ve been taking these pills for far too long. The damage is already done. It’s a slow process into reversing it. The only way to know for sure is to keep running tests and see how it goes from there. I will be prescribing you some pills as well. Three different ones you are to take daily. They will keep any swelling down and the other is a phosphate binder that will help you as well. I wish I could tell you precisely what is to come from here, but it’s a waiting game Ms. Gordon. I will also want you to start taking some vitamin D pills.”
“So you haven’t noticed any signs over the years?”
“Some back and body aches yeah… don’t have near the appetite I used to and I’m always thirsty.”
The doctor nods.
“How long ago did you notice these signs?”
“A couple years ago I suppose.”
He sighs and shakes his head.
“And why didn’t you see a doctor sooner?”
Bella half laughs.
“It was a doctor that prescribed the pills to begin with.”
“Well I say next time you get a second even third opinion. This doctor is in for one hell of a lawsuit. It’s doctors like him that give ones like myself bad names. I always tell my patients if they do not trust the advice I have given them to go get another opinion. I really wish you would have, but the damage is done and we just go from there. I truly apologize I can only imagine what you must be feeling about now. You put your trust in this man. Honestly, he should have his license revoked and should be thrown in jail! All cost to this should be at his expense!”
This doctor truly was upset about what Dr. Crane had done. He’d never seen such a case. He went over a few more things she could do in order to help. Afterword he exited the room. Bella saw it was 1 pm. But it felt as though it were nighttime She carefully got out of bed and dragged the IV machine along with her as she went to the bathroom. Once she finished she washed her hands. She then looked in the mirror. She washed her face and dried off.
Bella looked out the window. She thought about Jervis. Her heart did that dropping thing. She leaned back against the wall. It just occurred to her that he was on the same pills. If there was any hope that Jervis would make a comeback, she couldn’t fathom the idea of him dying. Though it still felt as though he had. So her mom and dad and now her best friend?
Anger coursed through her and now to find out her doctor was pretty much poisoning her? Did he even realize it? She thought back to Batman’s advice. What did Batman know that she didn’t? She carefully made her way back to the bed. She felt slightly dizzy. Bella lay back down. Before long there was a knock at the door.
Her aunt and uncle entered the room. Jim was first to grimace as he saw the marks around her neck, head, and how frail she looked.
“What on earth?!” Sara questioned and rushed over to her.
Jim and Bella shared a silent glance upon one another as Sara hugged her.
“Sweetheart what happened?”
“Don’t please… I’m ok.”
“You were missing for days and you look as though you’ve been through the ringer?”
Sara ran her finger along the marks on Bella’s body.
“Who did this?!”
Bella’s breathing became erratic and she didn’t understand why she felt so angry. She shut her eyes trying to keep that anger at bay.
“I just don’t want to talk about it right now.”
She didn’t have the heart to say who. She didn’t even want to think about it.
“Well you can’t keep it all bottled in and since when can you not talk to me?”
“Sara…” Jim warns seeing the look in Bella’s eyes.
He tilted his head noticing the drops of sweat forming on her face. Her hands were balled up and her chest heaved with irregular breaths.
“We don’t have to talk about it.” Jim says softly.
He makes his way over and takes her hand.
“We’re just glad you’re alright.”
Bella nods and clears her throat. She wasn’t about to tell them she had kidney disease or any of the such. It was taking everything within her not to lose it.
“Do you need anything? Could we bring you something to eat or to read?”
“I’m fine. I ordered some food through the cafeteria. Please don’t fuss over me you both know I hate that.”
Jim chuckles and Sara sighs. Sara takes Bella’s hand. She and Jim sit down and visit for a couple more hours. After while her friends from school showed up. Everyone had flowers and cards. Everyone had the same questions. Jim made it clear to everyone that Bella wasn’t ready to answer any of those yet. She was thankful he said something. Still the anger rose within her. Jim practically had to drag his wife out. She wanted to stay with Bella, but Jim could see it all over his niece’s face. She wanted to be left alone. He understood so made certain Sara came home.
Once everyone left Bella took in the deepest of breaths. She took it upon herself to undo her IV. Bella walked over to the window and sit on the pane and looked out to the city. Jervis never left her mind. The five years they had together begin to replay.
Her body felt antsy and she continued to feel as though she was burning up. There was a knock at the door again. She turned to see Jake entering the room. She half laughs and shakes her head. He sighs noticing the look on her face.
He nods, but makes his way over.
“What do you want?” She questions, but continues to look out the window.
“Bella please babe will you just at least look at me?”
She rolls her eyes and turns his direction.
“I thought I told you we were done. I meant period.”
“Bella please. I had to make certain you were ok. Do you have any idea what I went through? Dammit I came back to find you were missing!”
“What you went through huh? Once again it’s always about you.”
“Bella you know I didn’t mean it like that. Just tell me what happened?”
He looks to the marks around her face, head and neck.
“Jesus baby who did all that?”
“Baby?” She scoffs.
“I haven’t been your “baby” in years. Just go Black I don’t want you here.”
“He did this didn’t he?! He finally lost it! I was right all along!”
Bella comes to her feet.
“Nah, man I’m not going anywhere! I’m going to stay right here! All night if I have to! Now I want to know what the fuck happened and I want to know now!”
“LEAVE! I DON’T WANT YOU HERE!” She gasped back and stumbled a bit.
“Please, just let me take care of you.”
“Since when do you care?”
“I’ve always cared!”
“LIAR! That’s all that comes from your mouth LIES!”
“Bella take it easy now…”
“No! I won’t fucking take it easy. My whole world has been turned upside down and you’re the last person I want to see!”
Bella opens the door to her room.
He nods with that wounded pup look. He exits the room and Bella shuts the door. She leans against it for a moment her entire body ached.
There’s another knock and Bella rolls her eyes.
“I SAID TO LEAVE!” She shouts and madly and opens the door.
He smiles and had a vase of flowers in his hand. He welcomes himself inside. She thought about Batman’s warning again. Bella looked to Dr. Crane in thought.
“And how are we today?”
“Not so great as I’m sure you’ve heard.”
“Unfortunately, yes I have.”
“Dr. Crane I think we need to talk.”
“In need of a session my dear?”
“Um no actually I’m afraid I won’t be seeing you anymore.”
He tilts his head a bit. He takes off his glasses and wipes them clean. He holds them to the light checking for smudges. Dr. Crane then places them back on.
“And why is that my dear? Haven’t we discussed this very thing before?”
Bella takes in a breath.
“Dr. Crane? What exactly are in those pills you prescribed us?”
He makes this smacking sound with his mouth as he paces about the room. His hands were about his waist.
“I’ve told you before, they’re to stop your hallucinations, nightmares, and things such as that.”
“You’re aware I have kidney disease?”
Dr. Crane looks to her a certain way. One she couldn’t quite decipher.
“Is that so?”
“Yes sir. Did you know that they’re brought on by the pills?”
“And who told you this?”
“The ER doctor.”
Dr. Crane half laughs.
“And you truly believe I’d give my patients something that could cause such a thing?!” He acted appalled.
She takes in a breath.
“Are there any other patients on these pills Dr. Crane?”
“That is confidential and you know that.”
“Well maybe you should know that you’re looking at a malpractice suit. You’re aware just how serious this is aren’t you?”
He half laughs and shakes his finger at her.
“Hmmm, you’re not a detective just yet Ms. Gordon. Watch yourself…”
“Is that a threat?”
“I can see we’ve come to a fork in the road. Such a shame… my precious Tiger Lily…”
Bella comes to a halt. He nods in satisfaction, but knew he had to hurry and end this. The pills were leaving her system and his hypnosis wouldn’t work for much longer. He cups her chin and caresses her face with his other hand. And he hadn’t exactly prepared for this. Who tipped her off?
“I’m very sorry. I had other plans for you my dear one. However, I can see that I’ve no longer a choice. My game must come to an end. You’ve not a clue just how much this upsets me. How much I’ve enjoyed these years of picking at your interesting little noggin’! But I suppose all good things must come to an end. How I’d much rather have seen you end up in Arkham like HIM! But you’re just entirely too stubborn! Now I want you to realize you’d be better off dead! You’ve had enough of this awful place and you can’t stand to live another minute! After losing your parents and best friend you just can’t bear no more. You will unlock your window and SWING! Another words jump as soon as I leave this room!” He pecks her on the lips then the forehead.
“Goodbye Ms. Gordon! It’s been swell! But I was never here!”
Bella makes her way to the window unlocks it.
Bruce paced the area of Bella’s hospital room door. He ran his fingers through his hair and argued with himself. He was trying to think of what to say and do. How does he know she’s even here, things of that nature? That he knew she’d be questioning him about. Bruce looked to the door once more. He rolls his eyes and starts to leave. However, another man had just exited her room. He practically knocked Bruce down as he was leaving. Bruce narrowed his eyes and looked towards the older gentleman. He was in such a hurry he only was able to observe him from behind. He was slightly balding and very tall he was in a black suit.
Bruce’s eyes grew wide though as the door was still in the middle of shutting. He saw Bella crawling out of her window. Bruce rushed inside and quickly seized her.
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” Bruce snapped at her as it clearly looked as though she were attempting suicide.
Bella blinked a few times. She looked disordered.
“Bruce…?” She said softly and reached to her head.
He had her pinned against the wall.
“That is not the answer, I can assure you!”
“What are you talking about and why the hell are you yelling at me?!”
Bruce narrowed his eyes and noticed her pupils were dilated. He turned back to the door remembering the man that had bumped into him.
“Who was that man that was just here?” He said more softly, but was losing it on the inside. If he had left she’d be dead.
“What man? Bruce you’re not making any sense and no offense, but why are you here? I mean I got the flowers and all, but how’d you know I was here?”
He doesn’t answer Bruce quickly rushes out of the room.
“Bruce?!” He heard Bella calling to him, but he wanted to catch the man and see if his assumptions were right.
Nevertheless, the guy was nowhere to be found. Bruce sighed with frustration and made his way back to Bella’s room. Her arms were folded about her chest and she cut him an accusing glance.
“Want to explain yourself?”
He wished he could, but couldn’t. He had to come up with something and quick. Bella rubbed her arms for warmth and turned back to the window.
“Jesus it’s freezing why is that open?!”
Bruce couldn’t believe any of this. He wasn’t sure what to make of it. She had no recollection whatsoever of the man in her room or her attempt to fly! Bella reaches over and shuts the window and locks it. Bruce leaned against the wall and folded his arms about his chest trying to think. He couldn’t very well say well Batman told me what happened or well because I’m Batman! Though he was curious as to what her reaction would be. To find out the one man she can’t stand, happens to be someone she idolizes? Still, that felt very weird to Bruce. He didn’t feel he was worth idolizing. That’s not exactly what he wanted, not from Bella. He wanted something a little deeper. He clears his throat.
“I went to visit you at the college and heard you were here. I do apologize. I will leave if you wish for me to. I just wanted to stop by and see how you were. Hadn’t heard from you in a while.”
“You went to visit me?”
He sighs as if disappointed.
“You never replied to my apology. I thought maybe it would be more sincere if done in person rather than on a note, which is something I should have done from the beginning.”
“You came to personally apologize?”
He nods and she looks to him confused. She was shivering all over though. Bruce took off his jacket and started to place it on her.
“I’m ok really…”
“Please, I insist.” He leads her to the bed and starts bundling her up with blankets.
“No offense Bruce, but why are you here?”
“Didn’t I already answer that?”
She sighs and shakes her head.
“I meant do you like torment or something?”
He cracks a smile.
She shakes her head, but he took notice of the fact that she was smiling in return.
He pulls up a chair beside her bed.
“May I ask what happened?”
She half laughs, but that of misery. The pain and emotional turmoil was written all over her face.
“I lost my best friend that’s what.” She says so softly he barely caught what she’d said.
“Your best friend?”
She nods and was doing her best to keep it together. That was the problem though. Bella was keeping it bottled up. That and she were going through withdrawals from the pills.
“It’s a long story…”
“I’m not going anywhere.”
She looks to him oddly.
“I just meant I’m a good listener, if you wish to talk about it. If you want me to leave then I can do that too.”
“I don’t want to talk about it.”
“So what happened to your friend?”
She shuts her eyes tightly. Her body was trembling. She was sweating profusely. She felt hot all a sudden. Bella takes Bruce’s jacket off and hands it back over.
“I thought I said I don’t want to talk about it.”
He nods again, but Bruce was going more into his detective mode now. That and he knew she needed to let it out. He doubted she had.
“Where did your friend go Bella? You said you lost him?”
She cuts him a dirty look. Bruce ignored it and continued on.
“Who is your friend?”
Bella began to feel as though she couldn’t breathe. Jervis’s face burned into her mind. The way he’d laugh and smile. How he made her feel the world wasn’t so bad after all. She sucked back a painful breath.
“Jer…” She answers with a quivery voice.
Bruce felt his own throat knotting up. Just the mere expression on her face was killing him.
“I’m just wondering what happened that’s all.” He continues to talk very softly.
“Maybe you should go.”
“Why can’t everyone just leave me alone?!” She shouts and pulls at her hair with frustration.
“Everyone keeps probing me! I just want to be left alone!”
Bruce takes in the deepest of breaths. He presses his lips together. He comes to a stand and retrieves a nice cold washcloth for her. Bruce places it on her forehead. She was sweating out the toxins from the pills. Her eyes closed again as he did this. Hot tears ran down her face.
Bruce sat at the edge of the bed. He continued to run the cloth along her face and neck.
“Just go please…”
Bruce pinched his eyes shut for a moment.
“I’m only trying to help.”
“I don’t need anyone’s fucking HELP!”
She hops out of the bed.
“Just go! I mean honestly Bruce I don’t get you at all. What exactly is your interest in me?! I mean look at me!”
“People around me either die or lose their minds! Trust me whatever you think it is you see! It’s not there. You and I couldn’t be more different!”
“Ever think that maybe that’s what I see in you? That you are different? That I’m tired of the same ole same ole?”
“Oh Bruce you got beautiful women throwing themselves at you constantly!”
“But not the one I want.”
“You barely know me!”
“That’s not how it feels to me. You think I go out my way for any of those other women? If you’d just give me a chance.”
“Bruce I’m in a hospital. I just lost my best friend. My life is a literal labyrinth of hell. You truly want to be a part of all that?”
“I’d like to be given the chance.”
She pinches the bridge of her nose and paces around a bit.
“I’m afraid you haven’t a clue what you’re getting yourself into.”
“Then talk to me. Tell me about your friend and how all this came about. If nothing else let me be a friend.”
“Does Bruce Wayne have friends?”
He raises his brows.
“And there she is…”
“I did it again didn’t I?”
“And why do you like me again?”
He chuckles a bit.
“I haven’t a clue. My butler used to beat me as a child.”
Bella’s eyes widen.
He smiles showing the whites of his teeth. Bella covers her mouth and softly laughs.
“I almost believed you.”
She leans against the counter. She nibbles on her bottom lip.
“I just keep seeing his face. I keep asking myself why? Why him?”
Bruce listens as she begins her story. She breaks down in literal sobs off and on. That and Bella couldn’t believe that of all the people in the world, she was telling this to Bruce Wayne. Bella reaches to her back afterword. She began to feel dizzy again.
“Are you alright?”
She nods, but grits her teeth at the pain. Bruce makes his way over.
“I think you should lie back down.”
Bella lies back down. Before long a nurse enters the room. Bruce happened to catch a glimpse of Bella’s charts as the nurse laid it down to fix her IV. It took all will for him not to react. He read the abbreviations KD in her diagnoses and already knew. He cleared his throat and came to his feet. He wondered if Bella even told anyone. Bruce wanted to take this Dr. Crane’s face and bash it in. What the hell was this guy up to?
“Is something wrong?” Bella questions.
Bruce shakes his head. He was to mad too answer at the moment.
“I suppose I better let you get some rest. Might I come by for a visit tomorrow?”
“I don’t know Bruce, can you?” She replies, but with a playful smile.
He smiles in return. Bruce grabs his jacket and places it back on. He takes Bella’s hand and kisses it.
“Then it’s a date.”
“In a hospital?”
“I could think of worse places.”
When Bruce pulls her door shut he walks up to the employees.
“I want all cost put under my name anonymously. No matter how much she and her family insist they are not to know. I will also be hiring my own security to be keeping guard of that room. No one’s to enter that room that doesn’t have Ms. Gordon’s permission. If a Dr. Jonathon Crane happens to come by. You’re to call the police immediately no matter the case.” Bruce goes to walk away, but stops at the elevator.
“Also cancel her dinner for tomorrow. I will be providing that.”
Batman breaks into Dr. Crane’s office and begins to investigate. However, this guy was doing everything in his power to cover his tracks. He must’ve gotten the word and bailed as soon as he could. Batman checked every nook and cranny of the office, but hadn’t anything to go on. The place had been ransacked proving he was in a hurry when he left. He wasn’t about to give up in his search though. He had some questions for this doctor and he wasn’t about to stop until he had answers.
“It’s looking clearer already. That’s a good sign Ms. Gordon. Still a process, but the red blood cell count in your specimen has dropped.”
Bella sighs in relief.
“Much better than when we first ran the tests. Nevertheless, I want us to continue with the plan. Eat right and careful not to stress your body out too much. Have you talked to your family about this yet?”
Bella shakes her head.
“I would advise that you do. You need all the support you can get.”
“You make it sound as if I’m dying.”
The doctor clears his throat.
“I’m merely stating that there is no shame in having help Ms. Gordon.”
She nods as he exits the room. Megan and Casey brought by her makeup work and homework from school. Jim and Sarah also got her covered for her missing days and got doctor’s notes from the hospital to take to her professors. She gradually came around throughout the day about Jervis and a little about what took place. The only thing she hadn’t told anyone and wasn’t about to was about the kidney disease. She didn’t see any point in making matters worse. That and she didn’t want the constant fussing over the situation.
Bella was watching the news when Bruce came in. He had a basket with him. Bella looked to him curiously. He had some sort of vegetable stir fry dishes that looked to be homemade. Bella breathed it in thinking it smelled wonderful.
“Actually no I made this.”
“So you can cook?”
He nods and begins setting up.
“So how many hospital patients do you date in a week?”
“Just the one this week.”
He slides her table of food over. He then pulls up a chair and sits his up on the nightstand table.
“Not so bad Bruce.”
She takes a few more bites.
“Actually this is very good.”
“Try not to sound too surprised.”
“So start over?”
“Yes please do.”
“Ok…” He grins and lifts his eyes toward her.
She clears her throat.
Bruce chuckles and plays along.
“Actually no I made this.”
“Oh, well I should have known this looks wonderful!”
Bella laughs and takes another bite. She was surprised to see that he was in just a regular black t-shirt that was very form fitting. Bella swore she was actually seeing a six pack through that shirt. She couldn’t help but to gawk practically. He also wore black slacks today. Something about it made him look even sexier. Bella figured it was just because she wasn’t used to seeing this side of him. He looked more relaxed this way as well.
“That’s not a bad look on you.”
He wipes his mouth after he chews his food and swallows.
“Is that another compliment?”
“Well aren’t you going to comment on my very lovely hospital gown?”
“It is quite exquisite.”
“I thought so.”
“Brings out your eyes.”
Bella laughs and sips at the tea he’d brought.
“You’re a breathtaking woman. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing.”
He took her by surprise on that one. She didn’t say anything to that she was a bit stunned. She had a hard time believing that he’d find her breathtaking with the sheer amount of women he’d been with. It was a known fact that Bruce dated very gorgeous women, models even often enough. All the more reason this felt incredibly weird to her. Here he was in a hospital room having this odd date with her. Something she’d never dreamed. It just didn’t seem very Bruce Wayne like. Perhaps, she didn’t know him as well as she assumed, which left her feeling more like an ass.
Bella also wasn’t even quite sure how to go about dating anymore. She looked to Bruce in thought.
“I’m rather new to all this again. So just let me get my sea legs back so to speak.”
“Understood and there’s no rush for anything. We’re just having fun.”
“Something you seem to know a lot about.”
Bruce shakes his head. Bella winces at her own words.
“Dammit…” She utters in a hushed whisper.
“You didn’t deserve that I’m sorry. I just…”
“Bella, it’s ok. I know this is going to take sometime. You’re giving me a chance that’s the least I could ask for. So I can take a few puns at my own expense.”
Bella gets this mischievous look to her face.
“Should have seen that one coming.”
“You really should have. I mean you totally set yourself up!”
Once they finish Bella gets out of the bed and drags her IV along with her to the bathroom.
“Need some help?”
“I’m pretty sure I can pee just fine.”
“Just making sure.”
After she finishes she comes back out and washes her hands. In the middle of washing her hands Bella freezes. He hears the water continuing to run and Bella’s staring out the window.
“Tiger lilies…” He hears her whisper as she looks to the flowers Dr. Crane got her.
“Tiger lily…” She repeats with clenched fists.
Bruce narrows his eyes and comes to his feet. Bella takes the vase of flowers and throws them against the wall they shatter everywhere. She starts taking all the flowers and destroying them.
“Bella!” Bruce quickly grabs her. She was barefoot and glass was everywhere.
He gets a better grip as she struggles to get free.
“Bella please…” He sits her down on the bed.
Bruce moves their tables out of the way. Bella starts hyperventilating.
“Tiger lily!” She grabs Bruce’s wrists.
“Just calm down now and breathe…”
“I remember…” She sucks back a breath and grabs him by the collar of his shirt.
Tears stream down her face and she fights for a breath. Bruce cups her chin looking her in the eyes.
“I remember… everything!”
“What do you remember?”
She collapses against him and starts to cry. Bruce swallowed back wishing he knew what to do. He hugged her and let her get it out.
“He was the scarecrow man he killed my parents! Dr. Crane! He’s been fucking with my head this entire time. He was hypnotizing me! JERVIS!”
She pulls back.
“No! It was him all of this everything! WAS HIM!”
Bella promptly rushes off to the bathroom and starts to vomit. Bruce ran his fingers through his hair and paces the room. Bella was having a meltdown.
“He did something to my father. He made my father shoot my mother and then himself! I saw it all! And this entire time he was my therapist! He was the one supposed to help me! He was their fucking murderer!”
Bruce nods and calls the nurse. He makes his way to the bathroom and helps her up.
“He killed them! It was him all along!”
Bella yanks out of Bruce’s hold and starts towards the door. The nurse steps in just as Bella’s trying to head out.
“Is everything ok?”
Bella doesn’t answer she runs right past the nurse. Bruce takes off after her as Bella steps into an elevator. Bruce barely manages to hop in before the door closes.
“Where are you going Bella?”
“To find Dr. Crane!”
“You’re in no shape to go anywhere. Look let’s call the police and you can tell them everything. They will handle it from here. You need to focus on getting better.”
Bruce takes her hand and pushes the button back to her floor.
“Let’s go to your room and I’ll call the station.”
“Why? Why would he do all this?”
He leads her back to her room and lays her back down. The nurse redoes her IV and gives her something for anxiety. Bruce calls to the station then he sits down beside her and takes her hand. He stays throughout the report as they question her and she tells them everything she knows and remembers.
She then looks to Bruce. As it just hits her…
“He was here… He wanted me to jump out the window.”
Bruce flinches at her words. He couldn’t get over how sick this bastard was and just how badly he’d been messing up Bella Gordon’s life. Once the police left, Bella asked to be alone. Bruce respected her wishes and cleaned up before he left. He kissed her forehead before he started out.
“I’m sorry our second attempt didn’t go so well.”
A small grin forms on his face. He turns to her.
“It’s ok I can afford it.”
She laughs and shakes her head. He nods.
After he left Bella tried her best to stay put. Hours pass and she couldn’t sleep. Jervis, and her parents were going through her mind nonstop. She took out her IV. Bella attempted to leave yet again. She got as far as a block down the hospital.
When she heard a thumping sound.
“Holy fucking shit Batman!”
She utters in a gasp. He cocks a brow at this.
“Um so nightwatch?”
“Justice will be served Dr. Crane will be found.”
“You need to go back at once!”
“I have no problem dragging you back.”
“Pushy aren’t we?”
Bella swore he was smirking. She narrowed her eyes and looked to him oddly. He stepped back into the shadows. He fired off his grapple and disappeared.
“You need to go back at once!” She mocks as she heads back.
“He’s so serious…”
The nurses and doctors look to her oddly as makes her way back in. Bella sees the guards outside her door. She hadn’t noticed that before.
“Um are you like watching my room?”
They each nod, with the craziness to everything else. She doesn’t even question it. She just throws her hands in the air and enters her room.
