16. A red towel

Justins POV

In panic I hung up the phone, and ran to my car. I pulled the door up, and started it. At least I tried to, it wouldn't start. I looked down at the gas meter, empty. Excellent. I furiously slam the door behind me and start running down the road, hoping to catch a cab. Or any vehicle at all to be honest. After 10 minutes of running, I heard a sound behind me. I quickly turned around to see a big truck coming against me. I stretch my hand out, trying to hitch hike with the truck driver, fortunately, now I was in luck. The truck stopped in front of me and I ran around to the passenger side. As I sat down in the seat, catching my breath, I looked at the truck driver. A 40-ish fat man, with a big beard, and small glasses on his nose. "Thank you, so much." I said. "Where to?" He asked with a deep voice. "You going past Kingston?" He started the truck again. "You're in luck today boy." Then he started driving. "And please hurry." I added.

Half and hour later, the truck driver, which I had learned was called Bob, stopped in in front of my house. "Thank you so much Bob, you're a lifesaver." I said quickly and threw him a 50 dollar bill. Who knew what I would've done without him? I ran to the door and pulled it open. "Hello?" I called. The air was dead silent. "Hello!" I screamed in panic. All of the people that mattered the most to me in the world were in big danger, how could I not panic? "HEL-" A little groin interrupted my scream. I ran into the living room. On the floor, to my chock, was my mother. She held a red towel against her leg, and looked incredibly pale. "Mom!" I called and fell to my knees in front of her. I lifted her hand away from her knee. The strong smell of blood burned in my nostrils as I looked down at what was left of her knee. I felt like I was going to throw up. I looked up at her face. She was looking sleepily at me. I quickly pulled up my phone as I watched her cough weakly. "911, what's your emergency?" I heard a woman say on the other line. "Hello, I'm calling about what looks like a shot wound." I told her the address and she told me an ambulance would be there in 10-15 minutes. "Oh god mom I'm so sorry."  I hugged her tightly. For a moment I sat there embracing here. Rubbing her head and telling her that everything was going to be okay. "Justin." She whispered in my ear. I nodded, knowing my voice would break if I spoke. She took a deep breath. "Jazzy and Jaxon is upstairs, he sent them up there and told them not to move. But Karla.." I felt my body stiffen at her name. Her voice got weaker and weaker as I heard the sirens rushing towards us in a distance. Her voice was so low I could barely hear what she whispered. But I could make out three words. Three words I hoped I would never hear. "He took Karla."
