Can you mix 3 ,38,117 for kay and Cameron? Great writing!
Okay, who ordered the triple scoop of fluff and angst. They include #117 – “Game’s over you son of a bitch! Tell me where (s)he is!”, #38 – “You fainted… straight into my arms. You know if you wanted my attention you didn’t have to go to such extremes.”, and #3 – “Please, don’t leave.” Anyone? Anyone?
“Game’s over you son of a bitch! Tell me where she is!” Cameron yelled when he got to the front desk. For the past few days, he and Kay had been investigating the mysterious murder of a night janitor in a high-end energy drink company. Everything had been going seemingly fine until Kay went missing two nights ago. She had told Cam that she was going to go speak to the president of the company again to ask about some new evidence that they had uncovered. Cameron had offered to go with her but she said that it wasn’t going to take long, Cam wished he hadn’t listened to her, he would know if she was safe if he hadn’t.
The president of the company, Mr. Enerday played dumb, “Mr. Black, I’m afraid I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“I’m talking about my partner, Agent Kay Daniels. She came to speak with you two nights ago and she never came back.” Cameron was in no mood.
Mike rushed up next to Cameron, “Agent Mike Alverez. We’re here because my colleague Agent Daniels came to ask you questions a few nights ago and she hasn’t been heard from since.”
Mr. Enerday shook his head, “I’m afraid I haven’t seen Agent Daniels, if I do, I will let you know. Now if you’ll excuse me.”
“Just a moment Mr. Enerday. If you have nothing to hide, you won’t mind if we look around. You have to understand that Daniels is one of our best agents.”
Enerdaay stiffened for a moment then relaxed, “Of course. Take a look around.”
Cameron quickly walked down the hallway, he had a feeling that he could figure out where Kay was. Mike called after him, “Cameron, wait up!”
Cameron slowed down for Mike to catch up, “Sorry Mike, I’m just-”
“I know but it’ll be easier to find her if we stick together.”
Cam smiled at his friend, “Yeah, I know.” His eyes suddenly caught a door that he hadn’t seen the first time he and Kay had looked around, “Hey Mike, you got my back?”
Mike raised an eyebrow at the out of place door, “Of course.” He had his gun at the ready for whatever was in there. They went through the door and were shocked by what they saw. The company building had this bright aesthetic to it but in here was dark, dreary and kind of rusty looking. “What is this place?”
“I have no idea but if Kay’s somewhere in this building, she’s here.”
Suddenly they heard frantic running, “Stay alert.” Mike warned.
They hid behind a giant wall of pipes when someone came running through, as if she didn’t know where she was going. However Cam recognized her, it was Kay but something wasn’t right. He ran after her calling her name, “Kay!”
He couldn’t hear what she said and he almost lost until she tripped… over nothing. Kay wasn’t clumsy, something was wrong. He got closer, tried to take her by the arm but she swatted him away, “Get away from me! I’m not some guinea pig!”
Cameron noticed that she wasn’t wearing the clothes she had worn two nights ago, she was now wearing an off white cotton dress and a dull blue cardigan. He had to grip her shoulders, “Kay! It’s me, Cameron!” When he finally got a look at her face, he was shocked. She still looked like Kay but there were scratches on her face, bruises on her skin, including her neck and a black eye was beginning to form. Her injuries were similar to what she
Kay blinked for a few moments as if she was trying to focus her vision but was failing. Kay carefully her hand and placed it on where she felt his hand was, “C-Cameron?” It was him, she could sense it.
Cameron smiled, “Yeah, it’s me, and Mike’s here with me”
“Mike?” Kay was silent for a moment as Cameron helped her to her feet, “We need to get out of here! Now!” She pleaded gripping his upper arms.
She tried to walk but she couldn’t keep herself steady, “Kay!” Cameron exclaimed as he wrapped one arm around her waist and took her arm and put it around his shoulders, “Kay, what did they do to you?”
“I-I don’t know, every time I started asking questions, they would just inject me with a needle and… then I don’t know what happened. I would just remember the injections. But every time I would wake up, I kept having trouble keeping my head clear and my eyes won’t focus.”
“Kay!” Mike called out, “Thank God we found you. Cameron was starting to go kinda nuts.”
“He-” Just then, Kay lost her consciousness.
Cameron to wrap his other arm under her legs and pick her up, “Mike, we need to get her to a hospital. Now!” Cameron said.
“I don’t know but she said they’ve been injecting her with stuff” He explained.
Mike’s nose flared, “That son of a bitch.” Mike had his gun held up in front of him and motioned for Cam to follow him. When they got back out to the lobby, Mike pointed his gun to Enerday, “Put your hands in the air where I can see them Enerday!”
“What the hell is this!? You have nothing to tie me to that murder!”
“No, but I can arrest you for kidnapping an FBI agent and using her as some… guinea pig.”
Mike knew that if Cameron wasn’t holding onto Kay, he would have attacked Enerday but Cam did look furious, “You better hope to God that she’ll be okay or you’ll have to deal with a hell of a lot more than simple criminal charges.”
After Mike had brought in Enerday, he drove Kay to the hospital with Cam watching over her. Kay had been taken into the ER, still unconscious, leaving Mike and Cam in the waiting room with Cam being a worried mess. Mike placed a hand on his friend’s shoulder, “Hey, she’ll be okay.”
“You saw those injuries on her, right Mike?” Mike could only nod as Cameron continued, “What I don’t think you saw was the look in her eyes. I mean she was having trouble focusing her eyes but… God, she looked terrified, I have never seen her like that before.”
“I can only imagine. Kay’s strong though, she’ll be able to pull through.”
“What the hell did they… inject in her?”
Almost as if on cue, a nurse walked out of the ER, “Kay Daniels?” Mike and Cam both stood up and walked over to the older lady, “She’ll be fine. She had been given an unhealthy amount of non-FDA approved drugs but we managed to flush most of it out of her system. Unfortunately, because of the drugs, we could not give her any pain medication. All she needs now is plenty of rest and we’ll need to keep her here for a few days for observation just until all the toxins have been eradicated from her system.”
Mike nodded in understanding, “Thank you Nurse… Rose” Reading her name tag.
“Can we see her?” Cameron asked.
Nurse Rose nodded, “She’s being taken to a private room now, I can show you the way.”
Mike patted Cam on the back, “I actually have to report back to Deakins now and make sure our new friend goes behind bars. You go on, tell her I’m glad she’s okay.”
Cameron nodded as he followed the nurse to where Kay was. “So what is your relationship with the Ms. Daniels?” The nurse asked with a kind tone
“Oh, uh… I’m just a friend.”
“Just a friend?”
“Then she’s lucky to have friend like you, I happened to noticed you when you three came in, you wouldn’t stop until you made sure she would be alright.”
“I care about her, I wanted to make sure she would be okay.”
The nurse stopped in front of a door and opened it, “Thanks to you, she will be. I’ll be back in a little while to check up on her.”
Cameron walked into the room and saw Kay lying on the bed with her eyes closed. Her skin was no longer a sickly pale and her cuts and bruises had been cleaned up. we walked over sat on the chair next to the bed and took her hand. “Kay? I know you probably can’t hear but… I’m glad you’re okay.” He took her hand in both of his brought it close to his lips, “I’m so sorry that you had to go through… whatever it is you went through. I know you must be in a lot of pain but it’ll be over soon, I promise.” He then kissed the palm of her hand.
“Hmm?” Kay began to stir. After a minute, she cracked open her eyes and saw Cameron seating next to her, not having noticed that she had woken up, “C-Cam?”
Cameron couldn’t help but smile, “Kay?”
“W-where am I” She tried to sit up but her headache got in the way, “Ugh, and why do I have such a nasty headache.”
“Do you not remember? You’re in the hospital.”
“Yeah, you went to talk to Enerday and then you went missing… for two days.”
“Honestly the last thing I remember is walking into the Enerday building.” Kay suddenly looked down at her arms and saw that there were many needle holes, “What happened to me?”
“You were drugged… a lot. So much that hospital is reluctant to give you pain medication.”
“That explains the pain. How did you guys find me?”
“We found this hidden section of the building that didn’t seem to match up with the rest of the building’s theme… then we found you as you were trying to run away, you said something about how you weren’t some guinea pig and then.. you fainted… straight into my arms.” Cameron smirked trying to brighten her mood, “You know if you wanted my attention you didn’t have to go to such extremes.”
Kay smiled but felt pain as she did so, “I must be a total knockout right now.” She muttered sarcastically.
Cameron shrugged, “Makes no difference to me. You’re still the same strong beautiful woman you’ve always been.” She blushed at the kind words. Cameron smiled that she seemed like she would be fine and back to her old self in no time, “I’ll go see if Nurse Rose has anything at all she can give to help with the pain”
He stood up and was about to leave when Kay gripped his hand, “Please, don’t leave.”
“I… I’d just feel more at peace if you were here with me.” Kay pressed her lips tightly, “Just until I can fall asleep?”
Cameron smiled at her as he sat back down. The two continued to talk and Cam even preformed a few card tricks for her until Kay fell asleep. Cam would have left but he stayed a little just to be sure that she would be okay. When Kay had been woken up by a nightmare involving her kidnappers, Cameron calmed her back down and hugged her until she stopped shaking. He then proceeded to lie down next to her claiming that if it happened again, she could just grab onto him like a teddy bear or body pillow. Kay soon fell asleep again with her head against Cam’s shoulder and her arms wrapped around one of his arms while his other soon pulled her close as he fell asleep as well. Kay didn’t have any more nightmares that night.
When Nurse Rose came back into the room to see how they were doing, she saw the two in their sleeping embrace. She quietly closed the door and let them sleep. She could bend the rules just this once.
I swear that these stories won’t all take place in a hospital!
