Boy of Blood
Excerpt from Chapter 7:
“Jeremy,” Nola panted. “Where is he? Is he okay?”
Gentry’s eyes flicked to the door behind Nola for a split second. “Nola, he’ll be fine. They’re taking care of him.”
“Is he hurt?” Panic surged in her chest. “What happened?”
“Nola, you have to get out of here.”
Another stretcher was being carried down the stairs. The guard at the front pushed Gentry and Nola aside, not seeming to care if he knocked them over. Gentry’s grip on Nola’s arm slackened for only a moment, but it was enough. Nola yanked her arm away and ran toward the door that Gentry’s eyes had flicked to, hoping that it would be the right one.
Nola pushed open the swinging door and froze.
It was Jeremy, lying on a table, covered in blood. His own blood. Doctors moved around the table, one of them shouting orders to the others. One ripped away the tattered shreds of uniform that covered Jeremy’s stomach.
“No!” Nola screamed without realizing the word had left her mouth, but the doctors didn’t notice the noise.
Ragged gashes cut deep into the flesh of Jeremy’s stomach. Blood poured from a bullet-shaped hole in the center of his chest.
Jeremy’s face was untouched; his helmet had protected him. His eyes were closed, he could have been sleeping.
“What the hell are you doing in here?” A doctor shoved Nola aside, a needle filled with black liquid held in her hand. “Someone get her the hell out of here!”
