Sheridan didn't think she had ever been so happy in her entire
life. Oh, she'd heard Luis say he loved her when he was sleeping, but hearing him say it to her face was something
entirely different. "Luis, I lo-" The ringing of the phone interrupted what she was about to say.
"I'd better get that." Luis said reaching for the phone on the table beside her. "It could be important.
Hello, oh Ethan. Yeah, hold on a sec, she's right here."
"Sheridan," Luis said placing his hand over the phone so Ethan couldn't hear him. "I don't think
it would be a good idea to tell him what you remembered. It might place him in danger."
"Okay, I understand." Sheridan said taking the receiver from Luis.
"Good. Why don't I go see if Dr. Russell has your release papers ready? Give you and Ethan a chance to talk?"
Luis grabbed the chair he'd sat in earlier then drug it toward the door. "I want you to place this chair under
the door knob so no one can open it from the outside."
"Okay. Ethan," Sheridan said placing the phone to her ear. "I need you to hang on a second while
I bar the door. "
"Bar the door? Sheridan, what is going on?" Sheridan didn't answer. She just followed Luis to the door.
Then ran right into him when he suddenly stopped and turned around.
"Don't open the door to anyone but me. Okay?" Luis asked looking into her eyes.
Sheridan smiled. "Yes, Officer. I promise. I won't open that door to anyone but you."
"Good. " Luis said leaning down and placing a small kiss on her lips. "Now I'm going to go see if
I can take you out of here."
Sheridan smiled as he walked out the door. Then she grabbed the chair and placed it under the handle just like
Luis told her to do. "See, I'm being a good girl." She said looking at Luis through the small window
in the door.
"It's about time!" Luis said as he turned and walked down the hall.
Sheridan laughed and walked back to the phone. "Okay, Ethan, I'm back."
"Good, now would you mind telling me what is going on?"
Sheridan sobered quickly, then proceeded to tell Ethan why she was in the hospital, carefully leaving out the fact
that she remembered his father was a murderer.
Luis had Dr. Russell paged and asked that she meet him in the waiting room down the hall from Sheridan's room.
She arrived a few minutes later with Sheridan's release papers in her hand. She told him that he could have Sheridan
sign them and then they could give them to the duty nurse on their way out. Luis thanked her, then started to make
his way back to Sheridan's room. He was so lost in thought about his plans to get Sheridan to a safe place that
he didn't hear the supply closet door open behind him or hear the man that walked out of it . He was just about
to walk through the double doors leading back to Sheridan's room when someone hit him on the back of the head.
Then he saw nothing, but darkness.
