Hunter wakes up in the hospital. 3:00AM

The sound of electronic devices around him, artificial respirator and other monitoring and scanning gadgets made all kind of noises disturbing his sleep. The pain and strange sensations to open his right eye was unbareable, like needles going through his brain.

He looks down, to watch his whole body covered in bandages, third and fourth degree burns in 90% of his body looked aweful from this point of view. He had an medical collar along with several splints to immobilize his arms and right leg. Had two IV one on each arm, one supplying all the painkillers he could endure and the other antibiotics and drugs.

In a couch near by was Maggy, covered in blankets still sleeping.

Hunter was confused and numb from the various drugs flowing through his body. What the hell happened? How did he end up here? Was he really this wounded? Obviously he was, but his memory of the explosion wasn’t this bad… was it? His memories were hazy; the pursuit had been adrenaline-fueled and chaotic so he couldn’t trust his memories completely.

All the questions seized when he saw Maggie. He wanted nothing more than to hold her but that was of course impossible. Could he even talk? Only one way to find out.
”Maggie?”

A plastic tube inside of Hunter 's throat made the effort of talking painful but some words managed to escape this beaten body with a sizzling tone in his voice. Maggy was deeply sleep, almost like she was dreaming, she opened her eyes scanning the room.

When she realized that Hunter was awake she jumped from her couch and said.
"Hunter are you awake?" it was only retorical, she started to smash the emergency button and cry desperately.

Hunter felt the panic welling up as he realized there was a tube down his throat. Having his arms locked didn’t help but seeing Maggie, just having her in the same room was enough for him to not give in to the panic completely.

Trying to calm himself, he simply watched her and waited for the doctors.

Fortunally for him the come only lasted a couple of hours but his recovery would take a lot longer. After the initial struggle passed and the doctors checked Doyle, they explained to Maggy that Hunter was a lucky man. There was no brain damage and surely all his wounds would be healed eventually. Now there was only a matter of time and God had made his part to keep his mind whole although his body wasn't.

The days after Hunter found out that it was unlikely for him to walk again. That last hit on his back did cause a severe damage and just to heal him out of the hospital would take a while. Hunter knew that his health issurance wouldn't cover all that way, it was good enough to safe his life and patch him out but now the later operations and physical therapy was out of his reach, in his heart he knew that all these was just propaganda but no in his reach to get.

Maggy was a very determined woman, also a cautious one, she had saving that might get little Chloe to the college one day, funds that now would go undoubtly to her beloved husband's health.

There was no way that Hunter would take money from his daughter, the savings they had for her college would stay there and he would not change his mind. The insurance would carry him as far as it did, after that he would find a way. Fucking insurance companies and their bullshit! Fucking hospitals for selling out! He was furious, he was a fucking police officer injured in the line of duty, he was in this situation because he was willing to protect others, it wasn’t fair and it pissed him off but he knew he would do it again if possible.
He could rehabilitate on his own if needed be; he had the will, the basic physiology and medical knowledge, he could study library book to fill in the missing knowledge… he would find some way to do this without taking his daughters money… even if that meant never walking again… He would walk again, and by himself if needed be!

After dealing with all the bad news and grief, he longed for his daughter, to hold her and play with her but he also didn’t want to scare her with his injuries. He needed to get better, for her.

Also, he had questions about the night of the explosion; what happened? Did Ferguson survive? Was there any arrests? Was all this pain and shit worth anything at all? How the fuck did that one biker take all that damage and still fight?

Many good friends from the station came to visit Hunter the day after, Mike Callahan was the first of them. He broght some hideous flowers with a 'get better sign' on them, a gift from his wife Caroline, he said. Hunter could not speak except from short words from time to time, Mike on the other hands had his mouth full with complains and curses to everything that happened to his brother, his partner, the good Doyle. Pherguson was in a room close by, she had most of her body burnt to the bone, its a miracle she is even alive.

After him Maurice and Britney came to visit him as well. Another two flower gifts left on a table, one with some NYPD guard dog-like officer winking an eye for his recovery. Maurice was the one to explain that the cargo being smuggled that night came from a company off shore, all men captured there were mercs, foreings and locals, all hired by a ghost company in LA with a subsidiary in NYC, none of the white collars were capture at this raid, much less the owners of the company.

Maggy came in the morning and then in the afternoon. Chloe has send many drawings for her dad to get better, she was picturing dad laying in a bed with little angels taking care of him. The situation back home was sad, for everyone, but Maggy was holding the line and doing her best to keep her shit together.

After Maurice and Brit left the room Dr. Jhonanson, Hunter's physician came to the room with another man dressed as doctor, the other guy was contrasting with Jhonanson like day and night. Identified as Dr. Hammer, an african american with a very strong complexion came to talk to Doyle about an opportunity.

Dr. Hammer said.
"Good afternoon officer Doyle, I know this is very hard, even to speak, so please just hear me out. My name is Sebastian Hammer, I'm a medic, specialized in research and development of new treatments for the National Security Agency. As soon as we heard the catastrophy ocurred in Brooklyn we started to check if your profile was acceptable to include you in our Experimental Treatments Division.

We're looking for volunteers for an special program that might help you in your current situation. The treatment we're offering is warrantied to recover your body in a very short term but this is a long term kind of a deal Mr. Doyle, it is experimental and we'd need to have you frequently checked by our medical staff, to follow an strict alimentation regimen and special exercise routines. If you accept you'll be transfered from the NYPD to the NSA and from this Health Center to another in Manhattan, all expenses are covered by the US government.

I'll leave the details here in this folder for you to discuss it with your wife, I'll come back tomorrow to check on you and proceed according to your decision."
he smiled and waited for Doyle to answer.

The mornings and afternoons were the best parts of the days, they were what kept him sane for the other hours restrained to the bed. Those moments with his wife and getting the paintings from his daughter, those were the moments he felt like himself, felt some measure if peace.

Getting a visit from Mike, Maurice and Brittany were a pleasant distraction and they answered some of his questions about the fallout of that night. At least they had some good leads and that made the injuries feel at least bearable. He wondered if Ferguson felt the same way, if she was even conscious considering the degree of injured she suffered. He wanted to see her, to show his support, they had only been partners for one day but getting blown up had formed a bond in Hunter’s mind. If possible he would be there for her, she didn’t seem to have anyone else but she would have him.

He watched the two doctors through his one good eye as they entered. Angrily his first thought was: ”Great, how much will this consultation cost me?” Then the second doctor introduced himself and his offer. Hunter was dumb-founded, this was a God-send, truly a miracle, but he was hesitant. Why did he feel hesitation? Simple really once he thought about it, it was that word: experimental, that made him hesitant. He struggled to croax out:
”Thank you… Doctor… But… side effects?.. Would I… be allowed guests... at the… clinic?.. Freedom of… movement? My family… is very… important… to me… And my partner… Ferguson… is she… eligible?”

He really had no other option but he wanted to know more, and to talk it out with Maggie. She would calm his worries, or cement them depending on her stance. When did the NSA start doing medical research? The things you don’t know.

”Thank you… Doctor… But… side effects?.. Would I… be allowed guests... at the… clinic?.. Freedom of… movement? My family… is very… important… to me… And my partner… Ferguson… is she… eligible?”
Hammer said.
"The treatment has three stages, in the first one quarentine is required but the whole point is to reinsert you into society and be the support your family needs. Eventually, you'll get to stage three when you'll be in contact with them. In the mean time you can use video calls and other types of correspondency but no physical contact."

Maggy came the very next morning, he came with a smoking paper cup of coffee, she was smiling and came with a cylindrical map case under her arm, the one she usually use to carry paintings from one point to another. She began with the good morning and how did you sleep but never care to listen the reply, she was just too excited to show Hunter the surprise she has gotten for him.

She lefts the coffee on the table next to Doyle's bed and picks up a rolled piece of paper and went to the wall just in front of him, next to the television to unfold a lithograph of a starry night Van Gogh's classic. A night that always remembered how small we're in the big scheme of the cosmos. She always said to Doyle when things turned dark, there's always a star to guide us but this time she said.
"In the big scheme of things everything makes sense my Love. Even this tragedy is meant for our well being." he could see the Faith in her eyes.

Hunter smiled at Maggie's excitement and the litograph she put up. He let her finish before continuing the conversation. Struggling with speaking but happy to do so with her.
”I love it... beautiful, like you… How’s… Chloe? And you?

He then indicated the folder that Dr. Hammer left at his table. Maggie’s opinion would weigh heavy in the decision so he was eager and curious for her to read it.
”Good news, maybe… Treatment offer, free… courtesy of… the government.”

”I love it... beautiful, like you… How’s… Chloe? And you?
Maggy smiled greatly, he looked better with each passing day.
"Chloe is fine my Love. Missing her dad greatly, she asks me alot about you"

She goes talking for a while about this morning's breakfast, Chloe made a little scene at granmas house, making a mess with her cereal and ended up with cold milk inside her shirt, making her jump and scream for everyone's amusing. She told the story laughting a little.

”Good news, maybe… Treatment offer, free… courtesy of… the government.”
Maggy's eyes went wide and ran to read the folder. Her eyes ran over the papers eagerly and then she stops. Looks up and says.
"Is this legit?"

Hunter remembered the doctor's answer about Pherguson.
"We are studying her case at the moment. Her body might be too damaged, I'm sorry to say."

He wander how legit was it, why couldn't help her as well. Hunter felt uneasy about the whole deal, even suspicious but all that ended when he noticed the expression of hope in Maggy's eyes, she was looking for something to hold to, desperate even.

"Chloe is fine my Love. Missing her dad greatly, she asks me alot about you"
He smiled and laughed at the breakfast incident, it felt good but also made him miss her even more.
”Tell her.. that daddy loves her.. very much.. and.. misses her too.

"Is this legit?"
Seeing the hope light up in Maggie's eyes sealed the deal. Even if he was uneasy about it he couldn’t pass up the opportunity, he had to make whatever he could to become well again. For Maggie and Chloe’s sake.
”Yeah.. it’s legit.. They can’t.. make promises.. but the Doctor.. seemed very.. confident.. It’s.. for real, babe, a miracle.”

He goes quiet for a moment, resting his throat as much as preparing for the bad news of it all.
”It’s just.. no visitors at the clinic.. quarantine for.. the first and.. second stage.. of treatment.. writing, phone.. even video.. is available..”

”Yeah.. it’s legit.. They can’t.. make promises.. but the Doctor.. seemed very.. confident.. It’s.. for real, babe, a miracle.”
Maggy's eyes went inmediately to tears, she kneeled next to Hunter's bed and cried of hapiness, he could tell how much she was holding back. Inside she was broken but still trying to bring light to Doyle's life.

”It’s just.. no visitors at the clinic.. quarantine for.. the first and.. second stage.. of treatment.. writing, phone.. even video.. is available..”
She rised her head still smiling, and said.
"Just get well my Love! Chloe needs you! We need you!"

She stayed alot of time, talking about his quick recovery and giving him glympses of what she have had to endure. From the idea that he would be able to walk again, or work again, not even to be with her like a man. Much Doyle had to interprete between lines but it was there, he knew his wife.

After she left, a few hours later, Dr. Hammer came with a man in a suit. The lawyer explained that all the information from that point on was considered secret and he could not share that information with anyone. Making him sign a document about it. Then he drawed another document, this time to aproove his inmediate transfer to another Health Center, under the custody of Doctor Hammer, to get an experimental treatment and commit to such treatment until he was medically release. A third document flashed out, this time his resign to the NYPD, effective inmediately, then a fourth document: power of attorney to Stronghold & McArthur, to take care of any paperwork in his place. Finally, a fifth and last document, a contract to be inmediately hire by NSA special operations field agent.

Each time after Doyle's signature the Doctor will sign as witness. After everything was ready the lawyer closed the suitcase and noded to Dr. Hammer, wishing all the best to Hunter before he left.

This must be so hard for Maggie, Hunter thought. He would get better, he would make this up to her. When he was better she wouldn’t need to carry it all, he would make it his mission to make her life as easy and filled with love as she tried to make his. This, he swore to himself.

He made all he could with the hours they spent together since he had no idea how quickly things would move once he accepted Dr. Hammer’s offer. The discussion with Maggie had made it clear to Hunter that he would accept, he could do nothing else. They needed that he tried, to keep the hope a light if nothing else.

All the paperwork made Hunter uneasy so he made sure to read through it all, he wanted to know what he was getting himself into. The first and second document was quickly signed but the third one made him pause. He had been a police officer for over ten years, it had been his identity for most of his adult life, if he wasn’t a cop what was he then? A father, he concluded after a while, he was a father and a husband, and now that meant leaving the force so he could become someone that could take care of them again. With a sigh he signed it too. The forth document he read very carefully, making sure it didn’t affect Maggie or Chloe in any way and when he felt confident it only applied to him he signed it as well. The contract to become a NSA Field Agent made him pause, in confusion more than anything else. Sure, Dr. Hammer seemed confident in him walking again but it couldn’t be guaranteed could it? Seemed like a risk for the NSA to him; he wouldn’t be much of a field agent in a wheelchair. He chose to see it as they really believing in this treatment so he accepted it and put his name on the final paper.

Miinutes after the lawyer departure a two man dressed up as nurses came to pack Doyle and was there in that exact moment that he realized they were about to take him NOW. No time to say goodbye to Maggy or to see Chloe again. They started to unplug him right away and pack him up to leave.

Hunter tried to explain, to struggle, to ask for patience, mercy but they were determined and at some point in the middle of his panic attack they gave him a shot in the vein and he was out for good, just blacked out.

He did struggle against the two men, it wasn’t that he wouldn’t go with them, it was just so unnecessary. If they had only told him what was happening and giving him a chance to give Maggie a call or even just leave her a note he would go peacefully, there was just no need for them to treat him this way and he wouldn’t take it without fighting back, to whatever capacity that was. As he fell unconscious his final thoughts were that this treatment he had accepted wasn’t a miracle, it was a devil’s bargain.
