The weekend is upon me...

Since Tiffy Sue was asleep Stacy laid her head up against the wall and dozed-off. A soft shuffling noise woke her and when she opened her hazel eyes she was face to chest with the same man she'd plowed into on her way through the ER door.
          She cleared her throat. "I'm sorry that I ran into you a little bit ago." In her present state of tiredness it didn't occur to her that he shouldn't be in her room.
          "Its fine, I know the circumstances were the cause." He accepted. "Is your baby going to be okay?"
          "I hope so. I think she may have had an asthma attack. I'm not sure why she would just start having them now though." It was odd that she was even speaking to this stranger because it wasn't her habit to talk to people she didn't know, but his voice sounded so familiar and safe to her...
          "That's too bad. Where do you live?"
          "I've got a house up on 23rd and Shields." She'd practically given the guy her address and oddly enough , she still wasn't worried.
          He stuck out his hand and said, "I'm Isaiah Cobb."
          Stacy took his offered hand and shook it firmly. It was warm and dry. She didn't feel the least bit put-off by his touch like she did with most men. "I'm Stacy Masterson, pleased to meet you."
          "I'm pleased to meet you, too. I'm from down River's Bend way." He told her.
          Stacy's eyes widened slightly. Her mother lived in River's Bend! She'd been trying to get her to move there ever since Chris had been killed.  She was finally beginning to wonder why this man was in her room and why the hospital had allowed it. She knew there was a security guard on duty. She'd seen him making his rounds several times since arriving.
