"Let's get him in," he said and got out of the car. The other man and woman came over to help, their daemons assisting Maia to get out as well.

Norah got out of ROb's car and followed along as they brought Elijah into the emergency room; she was so overwhelmed by everything that it hadn't even crossed her mind that Sophie was still in the other car.

(Sophie nooo)

As soon as he was inside, the nurses brought out a gurney and wheeled him to the back to take care of the wound. Rob stayed back with Norah, as they didn't allow anyone to come with.
"I'm sorry, but I had to call in some favors on my end. So...he knows you're both here," he said to her, looking solemn. He glanced around, frowning a bit now. "Where's your daemon?" He asked.

Norah could not think of a worse situation to be in. Elijah was clinging to life, they were back at the hospital controlled by a man who wanted them dead, and now Elijah's boss knew exactly where they were. She breathed in sharply and looked at Rob, for the first time realizing Sophie wasn't on her shoulder. "I...I left her in the other car," she said shakily.

"I think they followed us," Rob said, frowning at the doors. He crossed his arms and sighed a bit. "The boss has offered to lay off Eli, but...you have to back off too. It's the only way I could get him to agree to help Elijah."

Norah stared at Rob, mouth slightly ajar as she processed what Rob was telling her. She shook her head slowly, "No." she finally said, "I...I can't..." Norah got out as her eyes slid passed by Rob to where they'd taken Elijah.

"He'll kill you both, Norah. This way you're at least both safe," Rob insisted.

Natalie burst through the doors and beelined for Norah. "Where've they taken him? Have they said anything?"

(this. is horrible :P)

Norah tried her hardest to hold in the tears that threatened to flood down her cheeks. She quickly wiped at her eyes as Natalie burst inside and gave Rob a small nod. As much as Norah wanted to refuse, she wanted Elijah to live more. She didn't see another way out. Norah glanced at Natalie and shook her head, "They haven't told us anything yet," she said quietly.

(It might get worse too :D )

"I have Sophie," Natalie said, holding her arm out with the bird to Norah. She looked over at the emergency room doors, shifting from foot to foot anxiously. The rest of the Bears that had helped had placed themselves around the room, watching the group of them.
 
"I know this isn't ideal, but it may not have to be forever," Rob said as he watched Norah worriedly.

NOOOOOOOOO)

Sophie hopped from Natalie's arm to Norah's shoulder and nuzzled her cheek in concern. Norah just looked at Rob then at the other bears in the room; she could feel all their eyes bearing into her. "I'm not going anywhere until I know he's okay," Norah said, "but...then I'll stay away," Norah said, practically forcing the words out.

Rob nodded, looking away. "That's fair," he said, then stepped away to go talk to one of the others with them.

"What do you mean stay away?" Natalie asked, her face scrunched with worry.

"They're only helping if I stay away from him," Norah said quietly, avoiding Natalie's eyes, "If I don't, the boss will kill both of us," Norah said.

Natalie bit her lip, holding back tears. She hated the thought of either of her friends being put into a situation like this. "M- maybe he'll changehis mind."

Norah shook her head, "He won't," she said, clenching her hand into a fist. Part of her wished they hadn't called Rob and gotten the Bears involved but then Elijah might have died and she would rather never see him again than for that to happen.
