I stopped. Even Moriarty looked genuinely shocked. She had pushed herself off. She wanted me to live. She had apologized for dying. I ran to the stairs, not caring whether or not Moriarty tried to stop me or not. I could feel the adrenaline coursing through my veins.
As I scrambled down the stairs, I tripped multiple times, but still kept on. I could start to feel something well up in my eyes. I had never experienced it before. I felt something pour out of my eyes, and realized that I was crying.
I burst out of the building, and ran to the depleted figure on the ground. I pushed through the crowd, drying my tears. I got down nest to her body, and held her hand. I saw her eyes flutter open, but not like in the movies. It wasn't graceful, it was full of pain, as if she was using the last bit of her strength. She looked up at me, and opened her mouth.
"L-l-lo-lo" she tried to sound out, but having no luck. I gulped, she was losing blood. She continued to speak, only to be drowned out by the sound of sirens.
They picked her up on a gurney, and put her in the ambulance. I climbed in back, and I rode with her to the hospital. She looked like she had been through hell. And I guess, in a way, she had.
It was 3:41 when I was finally told that I could see her. I immediately stood up, and followed the doctors. They seemed to be moving too slowly.
Once I got to her room, I walked to her bedside, trying to keep my composure, but loosing it in one long sigh when the doctor walked out of the room. It took her a few seconds to realize that I was even there.
"Hey, Sher. This isn't like you. You look like you've been crying" she said in a raspy voice. She was smiling at me. She had barely been saved. I could see that they would have to do some surgery, but not on her head. She had, at the last second, curled up so that she wouldn't die. She was in terrible shape, though.
"Cinn, what were you thinking?" Was all I could muster. I was just happy she was alive. I had never really been happy that someone was alive before, so it was a new experience. I could hear a sort of chuckle.
"I was saving your ass, that's what I was doing" she said in between coughs. Even now, she was still being a wise ass. I liked that about her. More than liked.
I heard the doctor come in. I didn't want to leave.
"It's time to go. Make sure you say your goodbyes. You won't be able to visit her for a week" he said, walking out and waiting outside the door for me to exit. I muttered a few words, and left. She just turned her head, and looked outside. She looked sad, and I hated leaving her like that, but I couldn't have done anything if I had wanted to. I figured I would ask her what she meant to say when she was on the pavement later.
~So, after this, I will be writing some more, so just because it isn't a cliffhanger, don't give up on me now! Oh, how did you like the suspense? I was trying to make it dramatic, and I hope some of you were shocked at what she did. Anyways, I hope to see you all next chapter!~
