"What did you just call me?" He sneered his eyes blazing.

"You heard me" I snapped knowing fine well he did. This wasn't the time or the place but I couldn't stop the words from falling out my mouth. Everything had been a lie well most of it. Why did he feel the need to keep his name from me? Keep that he had an older brother from me. What else was he hiding?

"My name is Blaze, whoever the fuck told you differently is crazy. Now get on the fucking bike. I've got more important things to do" Deciding that was the end of the conversation he stormed of in the direction of his bike.

Once he parked the bike I was off before he could cut the engine. Shoving his helmet at him I about turned and ran into the hospital. Looking up and down I caught sight of my mom sitting in the waiting room.

"Ava where the hell have you been? I've been calling you all night?" Rising from her seat she pulled me into a hug. "We thought..when we couldn't get a hold of you we thought they had got you" She cried.

Pulling back slightly I wiped away her tears "I'm sorry I scared you. My phone ran out of battery" I lied "Where's dad?".

Shaking her head she took a hold of my hand as we began walking. Where we we going? Turning the corner my breath caught in my throat at the sight infront of my. My dad, the toughest, strongest man I know was hunched over, elbows on his knees as his head lay in his hands.

"He w-wont even talk to me" She cried "Tommy is his best friend Ava, they have been since they were kids. I can't get through to him A. I need him to be strong before he does something stupid" Breaking into a sob I gripped her hand tighter.

If he wouldn't talk to my mom what chance have I got?

"Go to the front end and ask for Ally. She'll give you something to help calm you down. Please don't get stressed mom, think about the baby" Kissing her fore head I wiped away her tears one more time before approaching my dad.

Not saying anything I took a seat beside him. What could I say? I didn't even know if Tommy was stable. Didn't know what his injuries were.

"Dad he'll pull through this. He's strong" I croaked watching as he pulled his head up to look at me.

"What if he doesn't Ava?" He whispered a lone tear sliding down his cheek. I had never seen a man cry before let alone my own dad. Seeing him in this state made my heart hurt. My dad was the one that kept things together and now here he was falling apart infront of me. Gripping a hold of his hand I wiped away my own tears. "They'll do everything they can to save him dad. Please go and talk to mom she's worried about you".

"I've knew Tommy since I was 6 years old. Hated the fucker. Always thought he was better than me" He laughed "I've never had anyone more trusting and loyal. I can't lose him, he can't die".

I didn't know what else to say. "I'm going to go find out his status. Please go and see mom" I said standing "She's really worried incase you'll do something stupid".

Catching sight of Ally leaving the operating room I moved quickly and followed her into the suite bathroom.

"Ava are you alright?" She gushed pulling me into a hug. "Cage called me last night when everything happened, wanted to know if I had seen or heard from you". Taking off her overalls she repeatedly washed her hands.

"How bad is he?" I asked watching her eyes down cast to the floor. That was all I needed to know to know things weren't good.

"I don't know if he'll make it through the night. Gun shot wound to the head, chest and two in the back. We performed surgery straight away and managed to remove the bullets. The bleeding has stopped in the brain but he's on 24 hour watch in case of swelling".
