Uuhhh...

Oh good, you're awake.

Wha...

Shhhh..shh... It's okay. I've got you.

Who are you? Where am I?

I don't know where we are.

Oh. Why is it so wet?


You're  bleeding sweetie. You're hurt very badly.

What happened? Why am I bleeding?

So many questions.You need your rest.

Why am I bleeding?!

You... You were stabbed.

Who would want to stab me? I didn't do anything.

You put up quite a fight. It was rather foolish of you.

Who are you?

Please, you really must rest.

Who are you?

There's no need for suspicion. I'm here to help. 

Were you here when they hurt me? Are you hurt too?

I was here, and no, I'm not hurt.

We need to get out of here.

Just relax.

If we don't leave, I'll die down here.

You'll be fine. I'm here.

What if they come back?

They aren't coming back.

But what if they do?

They won't.

Who were they anyway? What did they want with me?

Everything will be okay. 

Why are you dodging all of my questions?

I'm not, you just need your rest.

Who are you?!

Please, calm down. I know it's dark and you're frightened, but it will all be fine.

Tell me who you are!

Please, don't get angry. I don't want you to get angry with me.

I just don't understand why you won't give me any answers...

I told you not to get angry with me!!!

Pl...Please...put that thing away...

You're all the same. All of you pretty young girls. Can't you see, I love you, and all I want to do is take care of you. You'd be lucky to have a man like me to take care of you, but all you care about is who, and how, and why, never now. 

You're right. Forgive me, I've had a long day, I'm weak. I need rest. 

But you're wrong, you would have said those things anyway. 

No, I'm just tired. Would... Would you hold me?

Well...

Please, let me rest.

Anything for you dear. I can't stay mad, I do love you so. Is there anything else you need? 

If it's not too much to ask, could I have some water?

Of course. And while I'm up, I'll get you some bandages. You're still bleeding quite a bit. 

Thank you.

My, you are looking awfully pale. Your exertion must have drained you. There there. I'll go get your water, and when I get back, I'll come lay with you and you can just rest.

*****

Oh dear, has your stay expired so soon? I left you for too long! I should have stayed. I could have saved you! We could have been together for all of our lives. Now, I must find someone else.
