Last week Richard Leonard left us hanging mid-sentance. How’d Sharon finish his rather cliff-hanger-like cut off? Let’s find out!
Last week’s ending:
On the way back she would arrive with relief to find that Morana had made significant progress walking up the street. This continued for several shortening laps until, to Janelle’s horror,
Take it away Sharon!
31 – Sharon Manship
Natalia’s moaning and writhing ceased. She went still.
Janelle darted back to Morana, who was now entering the house.
“Morana, you must try to hurry, something is terribly wrong!”
Morana stumbled up the stairs as fast as her frail body would allow her to. Janelle was by now frantic.
“Please help her!”
Morana entered the bedroom and rushed to the limp body of Natalia.
“She’s alive.” she said, checking her pulse, “But something is wrong. You need to get more help.”
Janelle hesitated…it was one thing to make herself known to a before-timer, but she knew that the Doctor would not respond well to even the sight of her, let alone listen to her.
“Hurry, the baby is here!” Morana interrupted Janelle’s thoughts.
Janelle returned her attention to the scene. The baby had delivered quite suddenly and there appeared to be a lot of blood. She had no choice, she must do all she can to persuade the Doctor to listen to her. She flew swiftly in the direction of the Doctor’s house, ruminating over how she was going to achieve the seemingly impossible.
Morana meanwhile had her own, more immediate, matters to contend with. Not less Natalia’s condition, who although alive had lost a lot of blood and was unconscious. But also the baby. It was a boy. This did not bode well for Natalia or Protector Sumner. This did not bode well at all.
