I rushed into the emergency room, panting and wheezing, blinded by the dimness of the light in the room. Stumbling, I moved to the left of the door and waited for my eyes to adjust enough to see. Then I scanned the room with my eyes looking for a desk, a nurse, someone that could help me find my son. Spotting the emergency room desk across the room, I ran over to it and stood waiting for the one and only nurse I saw to get off of the phone. The emergency room was empty, very unusual for a Saturday afternoon. The sun was shining brightly through the windows, casting shadows all around. The television hanging in the corner was the only sound I heard other than the nurse talking on the phone. Shaking uncontrollably, with beads of sweat rolling down my face I finally heard the receiver of the phone being set down. Quickly my head flew back so that I was staring into the nurses eyes with a look of terror on my face.
“I am looking for Dustin Brand, I got a call saying he was here.”
She looked down at her computer, typed something in and then looked back up and said.
“Please take a seat,” pointing toward the chairs across from the desk, “and I will go back and see what I can find out about your son.”
Startled by her reply I said, “What!” very loudly, but she pretended not to hear me and continued to walk away.
Panicing I impatiently looked around the room. Looking frantically for someone else that could help me, but there was no one.
