Eric Crown rushed into the hospital, carrying the injured woman mindful of the fact that she is heavily pregnant. He left his assistant Andrew behind, who was trying to catch up with him.
Andrew had tried to carry the woman from Eric but he refused to allow him or even allowed his driver touch her.
""Somebody help me" Eric immediately alarmed the hospital nurse at the reception immediately he entered with the injured woman.
The emergency staff and nurses ran to him immediately seeing the injured woman in Eric's arms.
Doctor what can be done for her Eric asked she is so seriously injured.
We have to get the baby out of her first, the doctor replied assessing her injuries. We will try to save her life, I hope the baby is still alive the doctor added.
What! Eric exclaimed shock.
Take her to the operating theatre the doctor instructedthe emergency personnel there.
The nurses and emergency staff put her on a hospital stretcher, and started wheeling her to the operation theatre.
A nurse came with some papers for Eric to sign, he didn't even look at them he just signed.
Dr. Robert, the medical director of the hospital was already informed of Eric's coiming. He just got to Eric at this time and asked who the woman involved in the accident was?
Eric, still in shock with blood all over his shirt and trousers turned to Dr. Robert puzzled. What does that have to do with anything ?
Dr. Robert was surprised by Eric's answer. Mr. Crown, I wanted to know if she was a family member he explained.
No, I don't know her. She was hit by my car and we just rushed her here.
Dr. Robert has known Eric for a long time, well known for his compassion and charity work but he never get emotionally involved. From the look on Eric's face, Dr. Robert felt there can only be one explanation then asked "were you driving" ?
No, my driver was Eric answered.
I see, you don't need to wait. Be rest assured we will take good care of her, it's just that from what I have seen she is in a critical condition.
How critical Eric asked Dr. Robert.
She might not survive Dr.Robert answered heavily, we were all quiet until a nurse came and told Dr. Robert they were ready for him at the operating theatre, he left with the nurse.
She can't die, she cannot die Eric told himself. He felt this strong sense of attachment to her. Why is he feeling like this? As if, as if we have met before he thought.
Sir, sir. sir? Andrew called out, touching Eric's shoulder lightly.
Eric don't know how long he stood there but he suddenly realized Andrew was calling out to him.
Sir, you need to change, there is a rest room over there Andrew said holding a change of clothes for him and pointing toward the restroom.
Eric just continued to sit there, dazed! The incident playing over and over again in his mind. How come she was on the road at this time of the night? He wondered.
She is heavily pregnant, why would any man allow his wife to move around at this time of the night?, and she was alone.
Come to think about it, Eric didn't notice any wedding ring on her he thought, probably he didn't look properly.
Mr. Crown, a nurse called out .
Eric Crown looked up at her wondering when he sat down. Andrew immediately asked her what she wanted
We need to know her name for our records she said
We don't know Andrew answered..
It's an emergency, we had to rush her here, she was already unconscious Andrew explained.
Then Dr. Robert suddenly came out of the Operating theatre, pulling off his face mask. We stood up as he walked toward us, eager for news .
You have a baby girl Dr. Robert said smiling
Me ? Eric asked surprised!
