Excerpt:
Courtney wakes up, her head is pounding and blood is all over her lab coat. She does not know how long she has been out, but she remembers being knocked out by Calvin Taylor. She looks at Selma’s bed and she is still sleep. Selma was administered a heavy dose of Percocet to help her sleep through the night as comfortable as possible. Courtney then began to look around for Marcie, calling her by name, but unable to move swiftly. Water in the bathroom is running. Courtney managed to get to her knees and use the couch to get to her feet. When Courtney opened the bathroom door, Marcie was in the shallow shower with water running, bruises on her arms and legs. Her shirt was around her neck; her bra ripped off, her pants and underwear, all at her ankles.

“Oh God!!! Marcie!” Marcie doesn’t reply nor does she move. Courtney turns off the water, runs outside for help. The officer was getting up off the floor the same time Courtney was coming out of Selma’s hospital room. “Sir, are you ok? I will have someone come by to look at you, don’t get up stay seated.”

Courtney made her way to the nurse’s station, the nurse looked up, “Oh Courtney, what in the world happened?” said the nurse.

“I was attacked by Calvin Taylor, Selma Taylor’s husband, please call hospital security and have them dispatch the police. I need to call down regarding my shift, I was supposed to report to work, what time is it?” Courtney sees the clock, “Oh no, I have been out for over 30 minutes? I also need someone to look at the officer outside Mrs. Taylor’s room and I need help getting Marcie Taylor to emergency for examination.”

The sixth floor nurse scrambles to meet the request and makes the necessary calls. A second nurse joins Courtney to check out the officer. Courtney heads back down to Marcie with a gown and blankets in hand to cover Marcie. When Courtney gets back to the room, the nurse behind her tends to the officer to identify his injuries. Courtney opens the door. Marcie is still in the bathroom lying in the shower.
