26-At Fault

LUNA woke up to the feel of warm cloth on her hands. She noticed that her bloodied clothes were already changed and she was now wearing a blue button down shirt. Diana was absentmindedly wiping her left arm with a small white towel that was now streaked with dark brown, the color of dried blood.

"Diana, " her whisper was enough to startle her captor. Diana abruptly stood up and moved away from her, looking down to hide her face from view. They were in a hospital like room with white walls, tiled flooring and ceiling. Only the bed covered in red sheets where she was lying gave color and life to the empty space.

"You're awake. How are you feeling?" There was concern in Diana's voice and it gave Luna a surge of relief.

"I feel better now that I heard your voice."

Diana sighed and faced her. There were tears in her eyes that she tried to conceal with her long hair and cap.

"It should have been Frankie here, but I'm relieved it was her who took the bait. I didn't know you were pregnant. I...I just realized now when I felt your pulse. I'm sorry, Luna. I shouldn't have dragged you into this mess." Diana bowed her head and as much as Luna wanted to approach her, she couldn't bring herself to do it. She felt that there was something strange going on in her captor's mind. She could not look at her directly and she was fiddling with the hem of her loose black shirt.

"Why are you doing this, Diana?"

"I can't tell you. Once you're rested I'll let you go. Here, wear this." She threw a black pair of leggings at the edge of the bed and once Luna donned them, she opened the room's door.

"Will you come home with me? I'm sure they will be happy to see you..."

"No! I mean, no...I can't go with you." There was panic in Diana's voice and Luna could see beads of perspiration starting to app

ing like they did not see each other for centuries.

"Are you okay, baby?"

"Yes."

"Luna, where is..."

"Who?"

"Diana. Was it Diana who took you?" Liam was looking at her and she had to look away. She wasn't sure why she wanted to stall telling them the truth. She just felt like it was not the right time to discuss the ghost who haunted her best friend for years and now turned out to be alive.

"I don't remember. Come on. Let's go home. I want to see Frankie. Baby, please pay for my food first."

"I'll take care of it, " was Liam's reply and Alej lead Luna to the waiting black Cadillac outside the pastry shop. She sighed in relief when she saw only five guards near them. If Diana was still in the vicinity, she would surely be found by those men.

"Are you sure you're okay?"

"Yes. I just want to see Frankie. How is she?"

"She's awake now. She's waiting for you." For Luna, that was the best news she heard in a while. Alej kissed her and that kiss alone could make her forget the ordeal she went through. Whatever it is that Diana was blaming on her, she wouldn't think about it unless necessary. Her wedding is just a few days away and nothing could stop her from claiming her happiness.
