“Sir I’m sorry but I can’t help her unless she is part of the military.” The nurse said to Taylor as he stood in front of her with me in his arms.
“Please Ma’am you have to help her.” The nurse just sat there looking at her nails picking at her nail polish.
“Sorry I can’t help you.” She said not even looking up.
“Ma’am all I am asking is you take a look at her to make sure she is okay. Please.” Taylor begged as I laid there unconscious in his arms.
“Look kid I said no so get over yourself, begging isn’t going to get me to change my answer. You should have thought of bring her to the right hospital when you found her.” She said rolling her eyes at him.
“Ma’am.” He said clenching his jaw.
“Berta what is going on?” a voice asked. Both of them looked over at the boy standing next to the desk asked.
“Some Marine thinks that we can look at any girl he picks up on the side of the street. I was telling him that he should have thought of where he brought her before he came here.” He snapped. The boy looked over at Taylor before looking down at me. He rushed over putting his fingers to my neck checking my pulse. “Hey did you not hear anything I just said?” She growled at him.
“Shut up. Mom come here quick.” He yelled down the hall way. Taylor looked at the guy thankfully as he opened my eye lids to look at my eyes. A woman in scrubs came running into the triage section.
“Landon what’s wrong?” Landon nodded to me before trying to get my pulse again. “Oh my god.” She gasped running over to Taylor and me. “Marine what happened?” She asked him as she started to pull him into the emergency room.
“Hey what did I say!” Berta said standing up looking at Landon and the woman.
“What are you talking about? I don’t have time for this.” The woman huffed at her.
“I said unless she is part of the military we cannot help her here.” She snapped at the woman making her raise her eye brows.
“Watch who you are talking to because in case you forgot I’m your boss. So you watch your lip before you get your ass fired.” I groaned at the loud noises opening my eyes once again to burning light making me raise my hands to try to rub my eyes. The woman grabbed my hand. “No, don’t you dare try it.” She said with a pisses off face.
“What’s going on?” I asked moving my head to lay on Taylor’s shoulder better.
“Uh, the girl pissed off my Mom.” Landon said looking at me.
“Bailey where do you keep your ID?” The woman snapped. I reached over and pulled my wallet out of my back pocket handing it to her.
“What’s going on Land? Why’s she pissed?” Landon gently stroked my hair looking at his mother.
“Don’t worry Bailey everything is going to be okay.” The woman opened my wallet and pulled out my Military ID out and showed it to Berta.
“But, but I don’t believe it. That could be fake.” My eye brows shot up causing a deadly painful throb baking me woozy again. I clenched onto Taylor’s t-shirt again whimpering. He pressed his lips to my head again trying to calm me down.
“Mom come on.” Landon said taking my pulse again. “She’s in pain.” The woman put back my ID before walking over to us.
“Your right come on.” She put her hand on Taylor’s back guiding him to an empty ER room. “I’ll have to make a call to the commander about her. “ She rolled her eyes still pisses. “Land go get your father in here. Tell him it is an emergency.” He nodded running off.
“Aunt Kelsey my head hurts.” I cried into Taylor’s shirt. She looking at me before dimming the bright lights.
“I know sweetheart. Let me get you on an IV so we can get some pain meds into you so it will hurt a little less.” I nodded as Taylor laid me on the bed pulling a chair up so he still held my hand. I closed my eyes as I started to cry in pain again. Taylor rubbing his thumb over my knuckles trying to calm me.
“Shhh Bailey I know. I’m sorry. I wish there was something I could do to make it go away.” He sighed leaning his head down on the bed bars. I squeezed Taylors hand as I felt the needle going into my skin for the IV to work.
“All down Sweetheart. Now I’m going to give you some pain pills okay?”
“Okay Aunt Kelsey.” I nodded at her turning to look at her. She smiled leaning down to gently kiss my forehead.
“I’m going to go make a call okay Bails, your Uncle should be here soon to look at you.” I nodded at her as she walked out.
“Best thing about having your Aunt and Uncle as Doctors.” I said quietly.
“What’s the best?” He chuckled at me.
“You get seen right away, well once you get past the wicked bitch of the hospital as Landon calls here.” I heard him laugh again.
“Oh she bad ain’t she?” I nodded my eyes still closed.
“But not the usually one. Landon has the biggest crush on the girl who works the weekends. He always talks about her. It’s kind of cute.” I giggled.
“Should I be knowing about this secret little crush that your cousin has?” I shrugged as the pain pills started to kick in making me feel a better.
“Probably not but hmmm you never know what you will learn when you come here.” I said turning to look at him opening my eyes. Taylor smiled at me from where he sat with his elbows on his knees looking at me. “You got a haircut.” I pointed out looking at his newly shaved head.
“Yeah you know got to shave the mess soon or later.” He smiled at me. I looked at him about to saw something when a voice broke out.
“Bailey Kelsey Banks.” I looked at the door and shook my head.
“Is the full name really needed?” I asked groaning looking at my uncle.
“Yes. Yes it.” Uncle Rodger said walking into the room over to my bedside. “Let’s get you fixed up Kid.” He said looking at Taylor briefly before looking back at me. He pulled on a pair of rubber gloves getting ready to see what was wrong with me……….
