“What will we do now? What if she dies?” Josh whispered as he helped Matt carry Usha on the motel bed.
Apparently Irene hasn’t been accurate in reporting the number, and weapons, the demons had. Irene said their leader, was one of the responsible of the kidnap and could give them a lead to who their father was sent to after he was kidnapped.
Josh was certain they knew of their arrival; they were too prepared, not only for them but also for Usha. She didn’t expect them to use holy weapons, weapons dipped in holy water. And the only reason they could have use such weapons was to defend themselves against a stronger demon, Usha.
“I’m not going to die you pathetic Idiots.” Usha said grinding her teeth a hand on her wound.
“Come and help us!” Josh shouted to Marie who was sitting calmly on a chair. She didn’t response and Josh didn’t have time to deal with her. At least for now.
Usha was shaking. Apparently there was something that could hurt even the strongest demon. It was good to know. Usha would never have told them such a thing.
He checked her wound. It was pretty deep and didn’t stop bleeding.
“What do we do now?” Matt asked. Josh thought about letting her die. She was one of them after all, one of those who kidnapped their father. And for some reason he felt she was responsible somehow. But looking at her, defenseless, human, made him realize he was not like them. He wasn’t an assassin. He sure would kill to find his father. But not like this. He wouldn’t murder a defensless…creature, human or not.
He couldn’t kill her.
“We stop the blood.” Josh said taking a towel from the bathroom and pressing it on the wound. He ordered Matt to get some water and one of Usha’s vodka bottles.
Usha started laughing.
“At least you find it funny.” Josh said wiping his forehead.
“I never thought you would be the one to save me!” She said coughing.
Josh didn’t reply. Matt was back, he gave Josh the bottle and put the bowl of water next to him.
Josh took a deep breath and opened the bottle.
“This is going to hurt.”
“It is already hurting,” Usha snapped.
Josh raised an eyebrow. “I warned you”
He poured the bottle on the wound. Usha started moving hysterically. Josh screamed to Matt to keep her down. She started screaming and tried to push Matt away who grabbed her legs while Josh pressed her shoulders on the bed and tried to keep her still.
Then she stopped. For a second Josh thought she was dead. Matt looked at his brother slowing releasing her legs.
Josh check her chest.
She was alive.
“Now get me something to sew the wound.” He said sighing exhausted as he started cleaning the wound.
