Chapter 197

James was groggy from the pain medication and annoyed that he had allowed this to happen. A cop was sitting in a chair by the door reading a newspaper and drinking his fourteenth coffee to stay awake, whilst in the bed to his left there was a man who lay unconscious. Nurses came in and out of the room, along with the occasional doctor. He pressed a buzzer and a nurse came to see him.

“Yes? How can I help you?”

He looked at the matronly nurse and asked in his most seductive voice, “I am hungry and wondered if there was any way that I could get something to eat?”

She fluttered her lashes and giggled, like a school girl on heat, as she replied breathlessly, “Why, I’m sure I could rustle you up something.”

“Thank you,” he drawled as he gave her an appraising look up and down, before continuing, “You look ravishing for someone that has been up all night worked off their feet. I am sorry to trouble you.”

“Oh no, no trouble.”

He watched her scurry out of the room and dash past the policeman, scowling at him as he smirked and returned to reading his paper. James dared to be bold and called out to him, “Are you hungry? I could ask her to bring you something as well?”

The policeman shook his head, “Nah, you eat. I’m not hungry. Hospital food makes me wanna check into hospital myself.”

James laughed, “I hear you. Only, I feel like I haven’t eaten for a week, so bad food is better than no food.”

As he lay back on the pillows, he heard a man ask the policeman some questions one moment and the next moment the cop was gone. In his place stood Arianrhod.

“Hey you. I should be mad at you for leaving me on the side of the road but I guess it was for the best?”

He stared at her mutely.

“Well? Are you going to say hi?” She sauntered over to his bed and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

“Hi,” he finally croaked.

“Hmmm... you’ve sounded better,” she said with a raised eyebrow.

“I guess a bullet can make a guy sound different.”

“I guess so.”

“What are you doing here?”

“Busting you out.”
