Rei smelled blood. The metallic taste was in her mouth enveloping her senses. Sirens blared, but the throbbing of her head hurt so bad she didn’t have the will to open her eyes. She had to open them. The accident, her last thought before being suffocated by the chilled waters beneath the bridge where they’d crashed, was that her sister, EmVee was thrown from the van. Her brother hit his head; Dexter was drowning. Her mom and her twin brother what happened to them? Reece, her the accident, it was her fault. She had to save them, get them away from here. She struggled and jerked, feeling if she was fighting to get out of the suffocating waters of the lake.
“Ah!” She fought the pain that coursed through her entire body and pushed herself up. Rei’s trembling hands braced herself on the hard cot in what appeared to be the inside of an ambulance.
“They are on us!” a gruff curse from a medic behind her yelled. The ambulance sharply whipped to the side.
Rei slid off the hard bed, her knees buckled when she hit the floor. “God! Ah.” She willed herself to stand and pushed her back up against the wall, wincing at the burn in her side and on her head. She opened her eyes; one was bandaged closed, but the other she could see clearly through a hole in the covering over her head. Everything on her hurt, but suddenly an energy she couldn’t explain rushed through her in waves, dulling the pain, giving her focus.
The crouching medic held on to a rounded looped strap in the corner of the ambulance van. The medic pointed a gun through the broken glass window of the back-double doors. Several pops sounded and the doors flew open. Someone was shooting at them? At an ambulance? Why? Rei crawled backwards, grimacing at the pain.
“I can’t die today.” Rei searched for something to hold onto and a weapon, anything she could use. The bed slammed the opposite side of the ambulance, then surged at her. Rei dropped to the floor barely in time to keep her head attached to her neck.
