The girls were safely administered into the hospital, with Detective Harrison anxiously hovering around from room to room. A nurse came over to him and rested her hand on his shoulder and he shivered.
“Detective, I think you need to rest. You have been vigilant all night and frankly, pardon my French, you look like shit. If you don’t get any rest, you will be useless when they wake. I promise to have someone wake you as soon as we have any news.”
He stared down at her hand and then looked at her blankly. None of what she said had registered. His thoughts were a million miles away. How could anyone mutilate and murder such young girls? It was preposterous! Closing his eyes temporarily made him feel faint and nauseas and he thought he should ask them for some sort of pill to keep him awake.
The nurse looked at him worriedly and repeated her concerns once more but he shook his head. He didn’t want to sleep. The only thing he cared about was the fact that the son of a bitch was out there and he was trapped in here. How can he be in two places at the same time?
Harrison didn’t even notice that the nurse had moved away until she came back with a doctor in tow.
“You, sleep, now!” he ordered the exhausted Harrison.
“How can I sleep? I have four girls fighting for their lives in there and I have the crazy maniac roaming the streets, possibly looking for replacement victims! What would you have me do? What if you had a daughter? What if these girls were yours?”
The doctor looked at him and nodded. He understood but knew that without sleep, Harrison would become a patient himself.
“I want you to catch that psycho as much as you do but without sleep, you are useless to us all. I don’t want to have to be looking after you as well as the girls. Make my job easier for me and take a nap so I don’t have to tie you to a bed!”
Harrison allowed the nurse to take him to a bed.
“Wake me in an hour,” he demanded.
“Of course,” the nurse replied, intending to let him sleep until he was rested and refreshed.
