“Ssh dove, everything’s all right. You’re in the hospital, and you’re…just fine,” he says calmly, though I see he’s upset in the way his fists clench before his hands unfurl to stroke my face.
“Vincent, I appreciate your concern here, seriously I do, but..”
“He got away, dove,” he interrupts, giving me a hard look that tells me to shut up and listen.
“He fell onto the fire escape, and by the time the police got there he was gone. That animal is running around, free, at this very moment, so I need you to talk to me.”
Everything inside me shudders to a stop, and I feel something eerily similar to hysteria bubble up my throat.
Cliffhanger ending. Three part serial.
