Chapter 7: Five hours Later
It has been five hours and we had not heard how Lisa was doing. I heard my name called 10 minutes later. I looked up and saw a doctor standing in the doorway. I stood up and said I am Savage. How are you related to Lisa? I am her fiance. I said god forgive me for lying but if I didn't he would tell me nothing.
We managed to get the bullet out and stop the bleeding. The bullet was very close to her spinal cord. I am afraid that she could be parallelized. But we won't know for sure until she wakes up. I balled my hands into fists. Can I see her? Yes, follow me. I walked behind the doctor down the hallway to the ICU. I walked in and sat down in the chair near the bed. She was hooked up to all kinds of tubes and was on oxygen.
She looked so tiny in the hospital bed. I held her hand and talked to her. Lisa, please wake up. I want to look across the bar and see you working on your schoolwork. I want to hear you get sassy at times. Please do not die. I look forward to seeing you in the bar. I like how you do not look at the other men. I like to hear you laugh when Whiskey teases you.
Lisa, I want you to know that I will find out who did this to you. I need you to wake open and open your eyes. Please don't make me call Jim and tell him you got shot. He will kill me. I hung my head and thought about how I used to hate going to the bar until she walked in. She makes it worth my time now. She is so pretty to look at and she is shy and naive.
I stood up and did what I always wanted to do. I kissed her on her forehead and told her I would come and see her tomorrow. I turned and walked to the door. As I left the room a nurse walked over and asked, would you like to have coffee with me after you visit your sister tomorrow? Lisa is not my sister. She is my fiance and no I do not want to have coffee with you. I turned and walked to the elevator and back to the waiting room.
How is she Savage they asked me? The bullet was really close to her spinal cord. She might be parallelized but they won't know for sure until she wakes up. Let's go back to the bar I said walking out of the room and outside. As I arrived back at the bar I told Whiskey what the doctor said. He was pissed off. She better not be I said looking at Savage. She did nothing to deserve this.
I picked up my phone and dialed Jim. Jim this is Savage. I have some bad news. What news I heard. Someone shot Lisa in the back and she might be parallelized. She is in ICU right now. I told them I was her fiance or they would not have told me anything or even let me see her. She was shot 7 hours ago.
I am on my way. I need the key to her apartment I told Savage. We have all that here behind the bar. Whiskey picked all her things up while she was being loaded into the rescue squad. I will take about 8 hours to get there. So I should be there sometime in the morning or afternoon if I leave now. We will be here I told him.
I looked up from my phone and asked Whiskey if he heard from Texas yet about the car. I have not heard anything Savage. He is working on it. But if we had some more information to give him it would help but we don't. Put the word out. I want to know if anyone hears about someone talking about shooting a woman. I already took care of that to. Thanks, I said picking up my beer.
Why would anyone shoot Lisa? It's not like she is my girlfriend. We have not been seen together so it can't be that. I need to ask Jim why she is hiding or what or who she is hiding from. There has to be something in her past I need to know about. I need to find out if any of my men's Valkyrie works at the nursing home. I need to find out what she is like outside of this bar.
Is she has naive as she lets on? Is she as nice and sweet or is she putting on an act here I wondered? She does seem to have a fear of men especially some bikers. But I smile as I think about how she tries not to show it. She is so tiny and has a bit of a temper. I am worried about Lisa and why someone would want to hurt her.
I called beast and asked him to ask Sara, Kelly, or Donna about Lisa. They all work at the same nursing home just different shifts. Sara works first shift and Lisa works second shift. I watched as several of the club members and the members of a few allies look at the corner table off and one.
