The sharp odor of disinfectant assaulted his nose as soon as he stepped inside the doors leading to the emergency room. He squinted his eyes at the bright fluorescent lights.

Nurses in their whites and doctors in scrubs scurried back and forth like trapped mice. They spoke to no one, ignoring the anxious relatives as if they were invisible. Their only concern was for the patients that lay beyond the white curtains.

Rob noticed the wrappings from bandages and gauze that had been torn open, the wrapping falling on the floor in the doctor's emergency. Small drops of blood on the floor in some places, and Rob had to turn his eyes away to keep from getting sick, but the groans coming from behind the curtains still turned his stomach.

He looked around for his dad and Mum and the two little girls. Rob didn't know why they were here, and Mr. Ward had been very quiet on the drive to the hospital, evading the many questions the boys threw at him. He hadn't even bothered to park the car and come into the hospital with them. He only dropped them off at the door with a quick, "Nice to meetcha." and drove away.


The boys were left speechless. With hands in his pockets, it was Caleb who led the way through the double glass doors with Jacob, Luke, and Rob close on his heels.

Caleb approached the desk where the nurse sat, shuffling charts and answering the constantly ringing phone. She finally glanced up at them when he spoke to her.

"Excuse me, Miss," he said, exasperation in his voice.

She was reading notations on a chart to someone on the other end of the phone. She pointed the pencil she had been taking notes with toward another set of glass doors.

When Caleb glanced back at her, she pointed the pencil to the doors again.

Rob shrugged and shouldered past his brothers. He didn't need a map. The sign hanging on the wall next to the set of doors read Waiting Room.

He spotted his dad as soon as he went through the doors. He was sitting on a couch, Ruthie, and Lizzy on either side of him, their faces stained with tears. When they saw Rob, they climbed down from the couch and ran to him.

Rob stopped in his tracks. Kneeling, he caught the girls up in his arms. His eyes traveled to his father.

Carl's face was blank with shock. His eyes were looking right past Rob as if he wasn't there.

Rob started to feel dizzy and disoriented. He held tighter to the girls as if they could keep him balanced, afraid he would fall to the ground if he tried to stand. He held fast to the girls because he didn't want to see the truth in their faces. He didn't want to know.

Before his world collapsed entirely, Rob felt one of his brother's hands under his arms, lifting him from his kneeling stance. His other brothers were lifting the girls into their arms and returning them to the couch. The atmosphere of the hospital grew surreal.

"Dad?" Caleb asked. He shook his father's shoulder gently. "Dad, what happened?"

His dad's eyes were bleak as he focused them on his oldest son. The tears started flowing freely down his face. He opened his mouth, but a hoarse whisper was all that came out. A great sob left him, and he covered his face with his hands.

"It's your...mother."
