    One of the nurses who had attended to Jude found the two of them, followed close behind by a doctor. She quietly asked the nurse a question, taking aoment to look at the two of them before giving a curt nod and approaching on her own.

    "Mr. Genovese? Ms. Del Bosque? I apologise for the intrusion. I was going to call, but my nurse said you were both in the building. Intuition. Regardless. I assume since you are both here, you are aware of Mr. Broen's admittance?"

    When the doctor approached, Zora looked at her anxiously and with expectation. She was fairly young looking, though the truth was a lot of people on the island seemed to defy time to some extent. She could have easily been 25 or 2500.

    "Yes, yes, we have been informed, but that's about it. They told us to wait. Is he.. how is he doing?" she asked hesitantly, now feeling somewhat anxious, concerned, again now that the doctor was finally available to speak to them and let them know what Broen's status was. Dreading the worst, even though she knew it was supposedly only a fist fight he had been involved in.

    Jude wondered if there'd been damage. Maybe. But as someone who was literally missing most of his left arm, his concern levels were pretty low. Things could be fixed. What he cared about more was Broen's mentality. He'd been all sorts of fucked up before, but hearing Broen laugh at the end - hearing him laugh in the face of his father as his father viciously beat him - had given Jude hope he'd been fixed.

    The appearance of the doctors answered a question Jude had wondered when he'd first arrived at the hospital and been badgered to call his guardian, but he let it go uncommitted on.

    "I was there," Jude said, holding up his hand. "They just discharged me."

    "Well you're both on his emergency contacts. I'm not going to lie to you, he's in really rough shape right now. Been in and out of consciousness. But we expect him to make a nearly full recovery soon enough."

    The doctor gestured for the two of them to follow. It wasn't very far to Broen's room, and the doctor stopped outside of it. She lowered her voice considerably, "You can check and see if he's awake. But don't agitate him too much. We'll keep him overnight at the very least and see how he's doing tomorrow."

    She gave a tight smile, one that didn't look nearly as optimistic as she hoped it did.

    Inside the room, Broen was conscious. His face was stitched together and his hair was pulled back into a cap. His left eye had gauze and bandages over it. Bruises were everywhere and he was hooked up to at least three IV bags.

    Zora blanched visibly when the doctor said he was not in good shape and that he had been wavering between consciousness and unconsciousness. That only added to her fears that something bad had happened.

    Nodding when the doctor mentioned that she and Jude were his emergency contacts, Zora just looked grimly at Jude and followed quickly behind the doctor, the sound of her high heels clicking against the linoleum echoing throughout the corridor, until they stopped outside Broen's hospital room.

    "We won't. We just want to see how he's doing, make sure he's okay and if he needs anything," Zora told her, keeping her voice low and even as her gaze strayed to the room, desperately wanting to see how he was doing. The doctor's words and tone not reassuring her in the least that Broen was okay, or even going to be okay.

    As the doctor left, Zora let Jude go first and followed quietly, or as quietly as she could, behind him into the room.

    "Dios mios...* " she whispered quietly, shocked and immediately apprehensive when she saw Broen laying there in the bed, his face bandaged, bruised and hooked up to IVs and a machine. This was way worse than the doctor had led them to believe.

    "Broen? Love..." Zora said very softly and with some hesitation as she approached the bed, not sure if he was awake, conscious or what.

    *Good lord / my god

    Jude had seen Broen when he was at his worst. He'd been maybe a foot away when the police had shown up and had to physically drag Frederick off him. He'd seen how his face looked, and in the hospital room he looked downright cleaned up.

    There'd be damage. He was probably going to have scars. But he strongly suspected Broen would still think the whole thing was worth it. Maybe he didn't really feel the consequences of it right then, and he scooted over, taking a seat beside the bed.

    "You up?" He asked quietly.

    Broen's good eye slowly turned to look as his door opened. Zora and Jude. He gave a weak smile, not because he himself was feeling weak but because he was on a really nice dose of pain killers and other meds. "'m fuckin' high is what I am boyscout," he said quietly, not quite able to make his lungs push enough air out to talk loudly.

    "Hey... babe..." he said as his gaze fell on Zora. He tried to smile, but doing so pulled at his stitches and he winced and gave up. He opted to lift his hand towards her a bit. "...don't worry... he fucked himself... worse than he... fucked me..." His shoulders shook a little as he exhaled sharply through his mouth. A laugh.

    Hearing him speak as she came to stand next to the bed, even if he was high on pain meds, immediately made Zora feel somewhat relieved. Taking his hand in hers when he extended it to her, she gazed down at him softly and smiled, just glad he was okay.

    "Good gods, you had me worried there for a second," she admitted, just shaking her head at his words, chuckling softly as she leant forward and very lightly kissed his cheek, careful not to hurt him.

    Apparently Jude wasn't in the one in an unusually good mood considering how bad things were. He felt like he was on cloud nine, and so did Broen apparently.

    "You did really well," Jude said. "He's, to put it gently, fucked. In fact, hold on.."

    Jude fumbled into his pocket, pulling out his phone and flicking it open before turning it around for Broen to see. On the screen was a picture of Mayor Crawford, covered in blood, in handcuffs. Police flanked him on either side, and he looked absolutely dead inside.

    "Got this for you. Knew you'd be upset you missed it."

    Broen's mouth twitched slightly upward when Zora kissed him, the closes to a smile he could manage. "You... sorry for not kissing you back. Can't hardly move."

    He gstured Jude closer so that he could see the picture. Broen stared at it for a long moment and let out more of those sharp breaths. More laughter. "Fuckin'... cocksucker..."

    "We fuckin'... won..." he paused, catching his breath. His lungs hurt by virtue of being near his back muscles, which he was pretty sure were on fire. "...bitches..."
