"were here" he says getting out of the car, running around to my side he opens the door, slowly he tries to touch me without causing any pain, not succeeding I might add. Carrying me up stairs he opens a door, walks across a lobby receiving odd looks in the process. Pushes a button and waits for the elevator all very impatiently. I'm pretty sure someone was going to call the police about a young man kidnapped a girl...and so on.
"Cousin drinks too much." He says with a shrug, people nod in understanding. Getting in the elevator, he pushes a button before saying "how are you doing, were almost there, just a little while longer" shaking me a little.
Finally were there, he unlocks a door and runs in.
"Anna! I need help"
"What?!" she screams back before entering the room and sees me laying on the couch.
"What the hell did you do?"
"It was an accident!"
"Oh god what are we going to do, why did you at least take her to the hospital, wait how did you get her here. Don't tell me you hit her, why did you move her she could have broken something" and so on, never stopping to take a breath.
"Hmmm you know your sister talks a lot"
"At least she not dead, I'm going to call 911"
"Anna you no I can fix her up"
"But what if she has internal bleeding, or a concussion, or a cracked skull, or-"
"Jesus please just shut up, I'll be fine" I say opening my eyes, and try sitting up.
"She wouldn't let me take her to a hospital"
"So what if she didn't let you, you should have forced her"
"That's it I'm leaving" but I'm pushed back down well I don't know his name.
"You shouldn't move in your condition, Ann go get my bag" she nods and scurries out of the room.
"What's your name?" he asks while trying to get me to stay still.
Snickering I ask "what's yours?"
"Nate, your turn."
"Well Katherine you have a last name?"
"Yes" he laughs at this, which is when Anna returns.
"Allison I'm so sorry, I don't know what this idiot was thinking, he should have been watching the road."
"I thought you said your name was Katherine."
"It is" I say completely confused
"Wait your Katherine?! Ally's talked about you before, weren't you in Europe?"
"Yes, how do you know ...Ally?"
"She's like my best friend; we met in college, oh my god I can't wait to tell her, she's going to be so excited you're here"
"No you can't tell her I'm here ok? It's a surprise"
"Oh ok fine, so where are you staying?"
"Well I just got here today, I haven't really planned anything, it was a bit of a spur of a moment thing."
"Eek! You can totally stay here tonight! Well you're going to have to anyway, but now I don't feel like I'm going to be murdered in my sleep"
I couldn't help but chuckle at that.
"sooo.... I take it you're the sister of Anna's friend?"
"yes, I came here because I missed her so much I just had to see her again"
"hmmm well anyway how are you feeling?"
"much better, il be fine with some sleep."
"Ok, Anna do you have any clothes she can sleep in?"
"Of course! Anything for Allison's little sister!"
"Well isn't this an eventful evening?"
"You have no idea" I say chuckling.
"K here you go, I didn't know what you wanted so I just grabbed some shorts and Nate's shirt"
"What why mine?"
"Well she probably has some form of scrapes and bruises, and your shirts are bigger."
"Right, and on that topic I need you to take off your dress...or whatever you're wearing..."
Looking down at myself I see I'm still in my dress, once beautiful, is now torn and dirty.
"Um don't you think I should be the one doing that" Anna tentatively asks.
"Uh right you probably should be, I'm going to take a shower"
"So where's your stuff?" stuff... what oh right I'm from Europe I should have stuff.
"Oh did I forget, I was mugged on the way to see ally."
"WHAT!?" she bellows causing Nate to come running in.
"She was mugged!"
"Well crap that explains why she didn't have anything with her. And it is New York so it's not really that surprising" Anna sighs giving up, Nate wouldn't b e any help so there was no point In even talking to him.
"It's not like we can do anything about it, so there's no point in freaking out." I say trying to calm her down.
"Your right, but still, you get mugged then hit by a car, pretty tiring"
"It's been a very eventful day, and I'm exhausted"
"Oh right, well I'll let you sleep then, I'm in that room. So well night."
Thank fully she actually left, she talks too much and her very essence alloys me. But at least she knows where my sister is, this is progressing faster than I hoped, and I was correct she is here in the immediate area, predictable Alice, or should I say Allison. I wonder why she uses a name so much like her own. But that is not something to spend time thinking about, I must find her tomorrow. She will help me find the others, maybe I will keep Anna and Nate, they will be very helpful even if they don't know it yet.
