Escape and Shelter


12:00 pm Streets of London (Gem's Prov)

It was pitch black outside; the sky was dark as the rain poured onto the sidewalks. I ran as fast as I could through the streets; looking behind me to make sure no one saw me escape from my hospital bed. The rain pounded harder, as I slipped into a small alley; breathing in relief I allowed my weak body to slide against the wall.

I groaned in frustration when I beheld my attire, I was still in a white hospital robe" Nice, I ran out of the medical client without grabbing my clothes." I sighed; to be honest I needed to escape that place for his sake. I glanced down at the blanket my arms admiring the face of my newborn son. I stroked his soft brown hair taking in his facial features.

" You look just like your daddy," I cooed tears coming into my eyes;" No I can't think about that now, first thing is we need to get out of the rain." I scanned the area seeing nothing, immediately I stood positioning the newborn comfortably in my arms. I noticed him shiver and pulled the blanket more onto my son," Don't worry." I whispered" I'll find us a place to stay for the night."

The baby whimpered his eyes closed tightly, as I began walking out of the alley. I ended up on another street, but I didn't expect there to be this many houses." This was going to be harder than I thought and I don't see an inn nearby." It was late, and truthfully I did not want to knock on doors of strangers for a place for me and Jr.

After I had given birth, I knew I had to leave the medical clinic after all my baby's father Aaron was not normal and I knew that my son would be born the same. I couldn't just take him anywhere, I needed a secluded place for us that way I wouldn't have to worry after all being a first time mother is not easy.

I felt my baby shiver once again, I held him close to my chest; we needed shelter fast. I ran further down the streets; hoping for a miracle when I saw it an abandoned building, it was dark and tarred looking but I wasn't picky. With sheer joy, I burst into the small building; it was surprising warm felt cozy; but the place looked far from it. There were piled coffins, jarred organs, and a life size skeleton that caught my eye;" How creepy."

Around the area, I saw no one; I approached a desk in the front and gently set a sleeping jr. on top as I glanced at a small note on it. From what I read, this place belonged to the town's mortician;" That would explain the coffins." He had gone to a convention for a few days and that meant the shop was temporarily abandoned." What luck! And when he comes back we will be long gone."

I smiled happily taking jr. in the back to explore our new surroundings; too much happiness there was a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garden, work area and a basement. My smile grew wide at the luck of finding such a place, but I had to remember it was temporary for the time being. I began to yawn as I stared at the clock, it was 2 am time had went by pretty fast since I was in a panic.

I made my way to the bedroom, since I could not find a cradle for my son; I found baby coffin stuffed it with pillows. To my surprise, Jr didn't notice and slept peacefully; while I jumped in the bed to get some well-deserved rest not bothering to take off the hospital gown.
