Story - Visiting the Hospital Again
Game Date: 12/14/2006
Judah walked into his studio and grabbed his nicest suit from the closet, he had his old wardrobe brought up from storage and found most of it fit still. He gathered his things and put on some of the cologne that Rebecca liked so well.
He went to the security station and requested a driver/escort to the hospital, he thought since the publicity from the news would be widespread by now he did not want any trouble. The security force officer on duty was happy to oblige and soon Judah was on the mainland riding in an Alcatraz Foundation SUV towards the hospital.
He requested the driver to stop at the florist to get some flowers. Judah picked out a yellow orchid/tulip hybrid that he thought she would like. The ride to the hospital was quiet, the escort appeared very nervous about something.
"Is something wrong son?" Judah asked the guard who started at the sound of his voice.
"Ummm no sir, everything is fine," replied the security force member behind the wheel.
"Okay then why are you acting like we are going to a court martial?"
"It's just that you look so much like those creatures that attacked the medical center last week. It is kind of unnerving really, sorry," responded his escort.
"What creatures are you talking about? What attack?"
"You do not know? Maybe I shouldn't be talking to you about this sir," answered his escort.
"Okay fine, I will get the information from the Knight," stated Eon. "I assure you that you have nothing to worry about, I had a misunderstanding today when rescuing some hostages from the bank. I have you along to provide a presence from the Wardens security force, in case I need assistance."
The vehicle pulled up to the hospital then went around to the rear entrance at Judah's request. He exited the SUV and entered the hospital using the back entrance.
"Melinda, what room is Rebecca Miller in?" queried the ebon glass warrior.
Melinda promptly responded with the room designation and that the last report said that Rebecca was in good condition.
Judah took the service elevator up to the appropriate floor. There was no sense in scaring Rebecca by porting into her room. He waited a moment for the hall to clear of people then quickly went to her door. It was partially ajar so he entered and closed the door behind him.
She was sleeping still or just dozing. He walked over to her side and whispered her name. She opened her eyes and after blinking a few times became highly agitated and appear to be on the verge of screaming.
"Rebecca, Rebecca! Calm down, it's me. It's Judah."
He tried to say things in a calming tone but his voice still sounded like it was being processed through a crystal glass. He handed her the flowers.
"See its me, please do not be scared, I know I look... different," explained Judah.
She looked at Judah for what seemed like an eternity. Then she looked at the flowers and then looked back at Judah.
"Judah? Judah? Is that you? Oh my god, what happened to you? Are you okay? What caused this, oh Judah, I was so scared."
She began to cry. He leaned over and took her into his arms as she sobbed.
"Oh Judah, I thought you were dead, I thought I was dead, how could you be so foolish?! You almost killed me!"
Judah wished for once in his life that he could cry right then.
"I can not express my sorrow and grief, Rebecca I am sorry I hurt you, more importantly, I am sorry I am now this, this, thing..." apologized Eon. "I will be moving back to the base since I can't imagine you would want me looking like this. Just know I love you Rebecca, always, with everything I am. Sometime when you are better I will explain what has happened to me, but for now you need your rest and I am not quite what you would call photogenic. Please call me at the base if you need me or want me."
He kissed her softly on the head and left his communicator there on the table.
He smiled at her, "Don't be afraid. Remember, I love you." with that he slid out of view and materialized beside the waiting SUV.
He rode back to the base in quiet. When he reached the base, he finally turned to his escort and spoke.
"Son I appreciate your company today and I am sorry for any discomfort you felt riding with me. If you need me you know how to contact me, I will be in the training room."
Judah proceeded back to the training room, changed into his workout clothes and entered the area with a single purpose in mind; hone this new form of his into something that could finally put his pursuit to rest.
He looked up at the control room and saw it was empty.
"Adam, set lighting to daylight, full intensity."
Walking into he felt the energy in him surging. He requested the target range area configuration and proceeded to become the warrior within.
