- Derek dashed down the stairs, taking it two at a time, he ran into Mary who was carrying drinks to the sitting room, spilling it all over him, she would have fallen if he hadn't held her by the shoulders to steady her, "I'm sorry" he quickly apologized. She observed him for a second, "is everything okay Sir? You look pale" Derek shook his head, his head pounding furiously in his chest, "I just got a call that my wife is in city memorial hospital, she's been shot"
- "What!" She gasped, completely dropping the tray holding the glasses of juice and tears immediately brimming in her eyes
- Without waiting for Mary's response, he dashed off and heard her vaguely saying to him to change his clothes and also Marcella running towards her and asking her what happened, without beckoning to his driver, he got into the driver's seat and drove away.
