Even though his shift didn’t start for hours JD was still awake and in the process of getting dressed well before dawn. It was Sunday, typically the day for rest and while most of the island seemed to be still curled up in their beds, JD knew he had somewhere he needed to be, Sunday and Wednesday were the two days of the week that either he or Ian checked the secret little ‘drop box’ that had been set up in order for residents to leave letters or requests for items from the mainland. He had agreed to do today’s check, letting his friend sleep in for a bit longer. Although that was sometimes easier said than done, especially when they were sharing the same bed. A gentle touch and whispered Shh, I’m just going to check the drop was enough to get him out of the room and down the hall of the barracks.
Except today he wouldn’t make it to the drop box. No sooner had he stepped outside then he was greeted with a sight he wished to God that he could unsee. A dead body. Without a second thought he ran over to the figure lying on the ground surrounded by blood where he squatted down and checked for a pulse, sadly he found none. As he was off duty and under the guise that he was going for an early morning jog he didn’t have his walkie-talkie or cell phone on him either, stepping back carefully he rushed inside to raise the alarm before he returned to the body. It was then he took in the facts - female, young and she appeared to be a brunette if the long, blood clumped hair was any indication, her face - or what was her face was so badly beaten that it was unrecognizable and she was dressed in a hospital gown.
Wait… hadn’t Hannah…? No… it couldn’t be.
Then he saw the wires sticking out through the skin, in the area that he had seen Hannah scratching at when he visited her in the hospital a few weeks ago. But wasn’t she supposed to be released a few days after that visit? Had she relapsed? If this was Hannah it raised more questions than answers but the biggest one. What the fuck was going on?
