The Darkness Falls
| Lynne awoke with a start. She looked at her clock. It was 2:30 AM. Who in their right mind would call her at this time of night? She stumbled toward the phone.
"Hello?" she said groggily.
"Miss Keller?" (Lynne now went by her maden name, as she was divorced.) Lynne would know that voice anywhere.
"Sariah! What's wrong?"
"You need to come right away. The doctor who is on call tonight gave Autumn too much medication. She went into cardiac arrest; she is now on life support."
Sariah's words echoed in Lynne's ears. She couldn't believe what she was hearing. What kind of a doctor would do that?
"Why didn't he look at her chart!" Lynne screamed.
"Because...well, I'll keep my opinion to myself." Lynne hung up he phone, only to find Jamison's questions assailing her.
"What's going on? What's wrong with Autumn?"
"The doctor gave her too much medication...and she went into cardiac arrest...she's now on life support." She spoke the words, but they still didn't sound real to her. Somehow, she moved her lifeless legs toward the door, and the waiting vehicle.
