I over hear that my truck was sabotaged, my uncle Riley is investigating the accident, and something else but I can't make it out. Cassie comes back in with a grim look on her face. I look at her, she seems so fragile right now, I would feel the same if it was the other way around; her in the accident and me coming to the rescue. Cassie gives me a weak smile before sitting in the chair again.
"Hey, Zane." she says. I smile at her, wondering why she stayed with the rescue crew, then I remember; I had just gotten done with my shift when I hear a knock on the door. I open the door to see a girl in a tattered hoodie, jeans and boots. She says, "Hi, my name is Cassie Martinez and I was wondering if you have any open spot on the squad.". I look at this girl in awe, then say to her, "Let me check with my supervisor, but come in and sit. It looks like it might rain.". She nods her head and then comes in. She and Mom begin talking about her becoming an EMT.
I smile at my Cassie, the one I thought I would never get along with, but yet I did. Cassie smiles at me again, but says nothing. Mom and Sadie come in and Sadie says, "Zane, get better alright? Your the only other one that can help with whatever I need.". I nod my head and then a nurse comes in.
"Zane, you can go home tomorrow providing you don't go back to work until all of your injuries have healed." she says, then she states, "You only have a broken leg.". I nod again but Cassie looks confused. I explain, "When I crashed I had my right leg braced against something and that's when, well you know rest.". She nods as she looks at the now visible orange cast on my right leg. Tomorrow I'd be going home, and Cassie will be with me.
I close my eyes and fall into a deep sleep; that's when the nightmares begin again.
