Arlo's POV



I could hear someone calling out my name, but then again I didn't know if i was still dreaming or not, everything sounded clouded, almost far away.


The more the voice called out to me, the clearer it seem to get. After a few more attempts it was eveident that I wasn't dreaming, they were close by, probably even next to me. I could feel how extremely heavy my eyes felt, I honestly had no desire to open them.

"Arlo.." the voice murmurs gently.

I slowly began to lift my eyelids, trying to make out the blurry vision standing over me. Prompting myself up on my elbows, I slowly sat up straight. I reached a hand up behind me, rubbing the back of my neck. For some strange reason it's was aching like crazy.

"Kid, can you hear me? Are you alright?"

I rubbed my eyes, looking around the room, taking in my surroundings. I was in my bedroom, well the guest bedroom that Lucuis had arrange for me to stay in. Tony and a couple more of Lucuis men were standing in the room as well.

I furrowed my eyebrows, thinking to myself. What the hell happen? And why am I in so much pain?

"You were starting to stress me out, kid. I didn't think you were going to come back to us." I glanced up at Tony, confused. There was a hint of relief, but also worry in his voice.

"What the hell are you talking about, T?"

Wymark furrowed his eyebrows, looking back over at the other guys in the room. He turns back to me, a confused expression written on his face. "Erin.." he lets out softly.

"What about her??" I asked. Only this time he doesn't answer me. He stays quiet, putting a long face on. I tilt my head sideways a bit, "What about her, Tony??"

He clears his throat, "She's gone kid.."

"What do you mean she's gone?"

Then it all hits me, I start to remember pieces here and there, quickly putting two and two together.

The loud snap before I blacked out.

The sudden ache in my body.

Her apologizing...

She broke my fucking neck.

I bolted out of bed quickly scanning the room for her, knowing damn well she wasn't in here. She was actually the first person I looked for when I got up, and just like the first time she was no where to be seen. "Where is she?!" I looked over at Tony, a light panic in my voice.

He doesn't say anything thing though, he shrugs his shoulders with a hesitant look. "What do you mean you don't know?" Losing all patience, I grabbed onto his suit jacket, slamming him against a wall. "WHERE IS SHE TONY?!" I shout, starting to get more and more aggravated with in each second that passes.

"We don't know!" he blurts out. Tony was older than I was, he had twice the strength I did, I don't know why he wasn't trying to shove me off. "We can't find her anywhere. The boss has almost everyone searching the city.. We're only in here because he wanted to see you the instant you wake up."

I let go of him, taking a step back. I drag my hands across my face. "Please tell me it's only been a few hours." I murmur.

He shakes his head, "it's been a couple days man, If anything I think she's probably already left the city."
