The Babysitter - Part 2

Chapter 8

"So, I done wrong. Hell why not be honest. I'll never walk out of this place." I said.
"Yes you will. If I have to walk you out myself you will walk out on your own." Zac said, very harshly. I leaned back. He reminded me of Andrew and Adam those months I was there. Those few times I wasn't a sex slave. I didn't say anything else as he walked out to go get something from the car. I turned over on my side and started crying. I just wanted to go home. He came back in..
"What is it?" He asked.
"Nothing." I said, trying my best to just stop. Nope. No way wasn't gonna stop that fast. He sat down.
"No, what's the matter?" He asked.
"Nothing. Just like you say nothing wrong." I said.
"Gee you don't have to get so gripey." He said
Then he just left. I laid back.
"Now what do I do?"
He just left. He never came back, so he just didn't go downstairs. I tried to call the house and only Ike was there he didn't know where Zac was. He always assumed he was at the hospital. Like always the nurses forgot about patients. I wanted the pain killers on the otherside of the room, but it was more twenty five feet then ten. I hit that button and didn't let it go till one came down.
"Yes mame. Geez lay off the button." She said.
"Well, you should answer. The pain killers please." I said.
She threw the bottle at me hitting my leg that made it hurt, then she walked out. I picked up the bottle and took four of them. They knocked me out fast to. I woke up to the doctor shaking me a lot.
"Wake-up." He said.
"Aww." I said.
"I was in a different room. A lot plainer then the other room.
"Hey you okay?" He asked.
"Aww, what is all that pain for?" I asked, refering to my stomach, which was about to kill me.
"Listen you have to stop hurting yourself." He said.
"Yeah." I said.
He left me alone and I slept a few more hours. While I slept, Zac was in another world. He had went to a place just outside Tulsa.for some quite time. As he called he thought about everything. Andrew, Adam and all. What he needed to do and had to do. He needed to be with me. He had a life to.

January 7th

When I came to the following day no one was around. I sat up, but just layed back down..

January 10th, Monday

Zac hadn't came back and I was terrified. No one had come to even see me or called. The nurse cut down on the therapy. And with my mind on Zac it didn't hurt half as much. I was scared now. The lights in the hospital had shut off and the back-up generators kicked in, to keep the machines and all working. Some of the really bad patients were transfered in case of an emergency. I was scared, alone and in pain. I thought now that Zac didn't care anymore. He left without a goodbye and hasn't showed up since. It was very unlike him. Ike or Amanda... no one had come. Had they forgotten me? Amanda I pretty much understood, she was on surveillance, but none of the others were. About 1:30 the lights shut out completely. It was now dark. The bladder patients were hooked to a different machine and all the rooms with no kind of electronic machines were shut down, till full power was regained. It was complicated. I didn't even get it, but excepted it. Time passed slowly and I became bored and got to thinking. Then I realized just how scared I was. I then got scared. I wanted a room with light of any kind. About 2:00 the door opened and closed. I felt the bed shift as someone sat down. It was a person. Yes, of course, someone I had to know. His touch I knew when he touched me. I turned over and just went to his arms. I didn't care if I was wrong. I just wanted someone to hold me then. It was Zac, like I had thought.
"What's wrong? Why are you shaking?" He asked.
I just laid there in his arms that were stronger then when he was younger. Strong is why I felt so safe.
"Jennifer? What's wrong?" He asked.
"I don't want to be alone. Why did you leave?" I asked.
"Because I had to straighten something in my head out. I didn't mean to get so mad at you the other day. And I didn't mean to leave without a goodbye." He said.
"Then why did you?" I asked.
He turned a flashlight on and I saw he was half crying himself. He wiped my face off.
"I had a choice to make. To either be here with you so nothing bad happens or to be at home, afraid of even breathing, afraid he would come back. Everyone is right. I ignored ya'll so long. Your right. He is controling my life, even if he ain't in it. He only controlled me because I let him and I'm not gonna do that. I made my career choice. I'm joining you and you will walk out of this hospital, if I have to make you stay here till you do." He said.
I laid my head over.
"Zac, can you do me a favor?" I asked.
"What is it?" He asked.
"Lay down, cut the light off and hold me." I said.
"Okay." He said.
He turned and laid down reclining the bed back some more. Then cut the light off and held me. I felt safe and not scared anymore but Zac was still confused.
"Jen, why do you want me to hold you?" He asked.
"Because I'm scared." I said.
"Why?" He asked. "Why are you scared?"
"Zac , you're not me. You can get up and walk out. I can't. And where you think Andrew is coming to get you it's me he wants and what better of a time, then when I can't run from him. I can't even get a nurse to bring me a book. Let alone replying only to my screaming and it scares me. I was alright the first few weeks. You were here all the time. If you weren't here Tay or Ike, Amanda... someone was. But then when I could get up and move you started going home. Amanda slacked off and Ike and Tay too. So, it scared me." I said.
"Oh." He said.
I rested my head on his shoulder.
"Tired?" He asked.
"Yeah." I said.
I yawned and closed my eyes. I slept till 6:30. When I wokeup he was asleep beside me. I laid my head back down noticing the lights weren't back on, just yet. I laid my head down back where it was. I closed my eyes and just laid there. Forty five minutes passed. The door opened.
"Mrs." A voice said.
I opened my eyes.
"Yes." I said.
"Do you want to exercise today? We have power there." She said.
"Yeah." I said.
I woke Zac up. The past few days I had the one I hated. I was glad to have someone else. He wheeled me down....well, walked behind me. I had fun wheeling through a dark hospital. Once to the room he went for the wrong machine.
"They changed it Zac." I said.
"They did? When?" He asked.
"When the doc realized that was helping to tear the ligament not help repair it." I said.
"Oh." He said.
I got in the right one.
"He said if I'm gonna walk I have to do everything myself. That one does it for me." I said.
He had to snap them though.
"Aw." I said.
"What?" He asked.
"You got the one around my ankle a bit to tight." I said.
"Oh." He said.
He loosed it a bit.
"Thanks." I said.
"Now what do I do?" He asked.
"Sit back and talk to me." I said.
"Okay." He said.
He sat down on the rolling chair. He acted stupid an kept me laughing for hours. Well for an hour and a half till it was walking time, then he quit being funny. It got a little tough and he helped me over to the bars, but pushed the wheelchair back.
"Oh lord not you to." I said.
"What? You're never gonna walk.." He said.
"If I don't get tough and do it on my own." I finished.
"Yeah." He said.
I did rather well. Focusing on him, helped a lot better. Though it still hurt.
"Can you wait five minutes?" He asked.
"Yeah... why?" I asked.
"I got to go the bathroom." He said.
"Go on." I said.
I turned sideways and basically sat on the bar. I was sitting there wen I heard a cracking noise.
"What the?" I asked.
Then an alarm went off. Lights flashed everywhere. Red ones mostly. I heard more cracking then screaming.
"Zac." I said.
I got off the bar.
"Dang that hurts." I said.
"Zac!" I screamed.
More cracking noses. The floor started shaking.
"ZAC!" I screamed again.
He ran in.
"Zac, what's happening?" I said.
"I don't know." He said.
"People screaming, lights flashing. I looked around.
"Oh no!" Someone screamed.
I looked out the window thirty floors down. There was a problem.
"Zac? Something is wrong." I said.
"Why?" He asked.
"Sirens, a lot of police officers. The're evacuating the place." I said.
The building started shaking.
"Zac, we got to get out." I said.
He picked me up.
"Well let's go." He said.
He walked out. The tiles fell, landing in my lap. I threw them aside.
"Zac, wait." I said.
He sat me down.
"I heard crying. A baby." I said.
I got a wheelchair that happened to be beside me and went down the hall following the sound. I came to the nursery. There was only one there and a nurse. She had been killed. I came to her first. I screamed seeing the knife and the blood.
"Oh god." I said.
Zac came in, turning his head and then went and got the baby. It seemed the rest were gone. The building started shaking. He handed me the baby and picked us both up and went to the elevator.
"No... Zac." I said.
"Stairs?" He asked.
"Yeah." I said.
He went down the stairs. He was half way down when the floor started cracking and breaking.
"What is happening?" I asked.
"I don't know." He said.
Tiles fell. I had the baby pulled closed and used myself to protect the baby. The baby looked to be few weeks.old. Not old enough to die. I was hit with one of the tiles. Zac kept walking dodging the tiles as much as possible. He came to the sixth floor where the stairs had broke.
"I can't go any further." He said.
"Go out." I said.
He did.
"Put me down." I said.
"Are you sure?" He asked.
"Yes. Zac you can't keep carrying me. You're tired. I know it. What better of a time to walk." I said.
