Keith burst through the Emergency room doors and rushed to the counter. “How is he?”
The same nurse as before sat at the desk and was surprised, “Where did you run off to?”
“Not important. How is he?”
Doctor Cauplin walked out of the Operating room with a sorrowful expression on his face.
Keith followed the nurse’s gaze and found Cauplin’s face. When he saw the sorrow and apology in his expression a simple syllable escaped hi mouth, “NO!”
“Keith, we tried everything we could do.”
Keith felt a cold lump in the pit of his stomach. He turned away from the man and the secretary. His gaze fell upon a picture in the waiting room. It showed a man and woman walking in a forest. The picture boasted that exercise was good. Keith saw the connection of the man and woman and looked down at his hands. He had felt that connection when he held John’s hands. SHIT! His heart felt as though it had been dropped from a twelve story building and he felt it shatter when it hit the ground. He had to get out of here. Walking to the elevator he spared a glance to the nurses’ station. The nurse was on the phone and the doctor had left. When the elevator doors opened he got in and pushed the L button.
Just as the elevator doors closed there was a shriek. The heart monitor attached to John had begun to beep and showed a strong heartbeat. Nurses checked his vitals and everything seemed to be functioning properly. Doctor Cauplin hurried in after he had heard about the bodies return to the living. He also checked the vitals and was very surprised when he too found them to be very strong. “How it this possible?” Wait the man. He ran out of the OR and was told by the nurse he had left. SHIT! “Do you have his number? Or address or anything?”
“No just his name.”
“Then call NYPD maybe?”
“Ok what should I tell him when I find him?”
“Tell him that John is alive!”
“What? Doc you’re kidding!”
“No! I’m serious.” He smiled and said, “I guess miracles can happen.” He then returned to the OR to monitor John.
While he did so the nurse began the process of tracking down Keith.
