Scott's P.O.V

I jolt awake when I feel someone shaking me and someone screaming loudly. I open my eyes and look up to see Falon standing above me and shaking my shoulder. I look to my side and see Abby stretching as she lifts her head up off of my chest and sits up in her seat. I look around the small hospital room groggily and notice my sister and parents standing in the doorway staring at nothing as if they're shocked about something.

"W-what's g-going on?" Abby asks wiping her eyes and looking up at Falon. God, her voice is so hot after she just wakes up.

"We gotta go, " Falon says looking down at me and ignoring Abby. I furrow my eyebrows at him and slowly stand up.

"Why?" I ask him as I stretch my arms and help Abby out of her seat. "Where are we going?"

"Daniel's gone, " Falon says and I raise an eyebrow before turning towards Daniel's hospital bed and noticting that it's empty. My anger fuels as I realize that they must have pulled the plug on him while I was asleep. But why would they do that?

"You...you guys um...you did it already..."

"No that's not it, " Falon shakes his head at me. "He's gone. We don't know where he went."

"What the hell do you mean you don't know where he went?" I look over at my parents and Miranda. My Dad looks up and me and shakes his head like he can't believe it either.

"You and Abby must have fallen asleep in the room, " Falon says sounding like he's just as lost. "Mom, Dad, Miranda, and I went out to get some dinner but when we got back he was just...gone."

"Gone?" I look around at all of them and they look down at the floor. "How the actual fuck do you lose a person that's in a freaking coma?"

"The Doctor thinks that he's still in the hospital, " Falon shrugs. "If he isn't then he couldn't have gotten far. Which is exactly why we need to go now. Doctor says that he probably just woke up, freaked out, and somehow ran out. It's happened once or twice before."

"S-so we shouldn't b-be worried

from a distance. When I get inside I get inside I see Scott sprint up the stairs and I hear a door slamming. I slowly walk up the stairs and walk past Scott's door when I notice that it's open and there's no one in it.

I continue walking down the hall to make sure that Scott's okay.I pause in front of a close door that has 'DANIEL' on it in broad letters. Figuring that this is Daniel's room I knock on it a couple times and I hear rustling come from inside.

"Not now!" I hear Scott yell from inside and I sigh before making my way back down the stairs. I walk outside and take a seat on the steps looking out at the dark world from their porch. There are some streetlights on and every once in a while a car will drive by but other than that it's completely quiet. So that's why I'm almost positive that I hear something coming from the tree right next to the porch.

I stand up slowly and squint but I still can't see anything. I'm starting to think that it's nothing and I'm just tired from all the looking around Scott and tonight but then I hear it again and it's starting to get a little weird. Maybe I'm just freaking out for no reason. It's probably just a dog or something. I slowly walk down the porch steps and that's when I see the shadow. It's not very prominent but it's definitely there.

"H-hello?"
