"You're gonna be alright."
"Jenny?" Someone tapped me lightly on the shoulder.
Through my blurred vision, I couldn't make out who was talking to me.
"What's happening to her, Chris?" Victoria. That annoying voice would be known anywhere.
I didn't hear an answer from my brother, just a sad sigh.
Slowly, my hand felt what was around me. The soft fabric of a rug touched my back; I was still in the bathroom.
Suddenly, I felt an explosion from inside me. The air inside made me cough, making me taste the blood.
"She's losing too much blood; we have to get her to stop coughing." Was that...Batman?
"That still doesn't explain WHY she's coughing." My brother's voice sounded irritated.
I felt something under my head--it wasn't a pillow. I felt around again, my fingers touching a smooth surface.
And then... lips?
I struggled to open my eyes, ignoring the pain they were giving me. A familiar red-headed man looked down at me with a mask on.
"Red...Arrow?" I managed, before coughing again.
Batman turned my face toward him. "Do te know what Professor Hamilton injected te with?"
My head started spinning while I tried to remember. "Umm, Er-Erica detto I was s'posed to get a Tetanus shot..."
My brother handed him his phone, and Batman was dialing a number. "Get me Hamilton," he detto gruffly into the receiver.
A moment passed, and finally, I heard a faint voice on the other line.
"Oh my God..." Batman's voice was in awe.
"What did he say?" Christopher demanded, crouching beside him.
Batman ignored him. "We have to get her to a hospital. NOW!!"
I was being lifted up, and Red Arrow started running, with my siblings and Batman close behind.
"You're gonna be alright," I heard him say under his breath, just before I went under.
When I woke up again, bright lights flashed in my eyes, with lots of people talking amongst themselves. I tried sitting up, but lines restrained me.
"She's awake!" a nurse exclaimed.
I couldn't believe it. The Man of Steel was walking toward me!
"S-superman?" I struggled.
"Good Lord..." Professor Hamilton rushed to my side, with tears in his eyes. "Jeannette, I'm so sorry..."
"What happened?" I asked, feeling dizzy.
Superman sighed. "The case Professor Hamilton injected te with wasn't the Tetanus formula, but a sample of my blood."
Batman walked inoltrare, avanti with a small X-ray in his hands. "Kryptonian blood is denser than human blood, which explains all the coughing.
"His blood cells are eating through the human cells, forcing them to come out the body. Now, we're going to inject te with anesthetic to begin the blood transfusion."
"Blood transfusion?!" I almost shouted. "Who's blood?"
"Your brother's. Just a sample though," he added quickly, seeing my expression. "With più human blood, the Kryptonian cells will become smaller."
A nurse set a capsule over my mouth.
"Wait!" I detto before she pressed the button. "Vicky and Anna...where are they?"
"In the cafeteria. Your little sister was afraid to see what was happening." Poor Vicky.
"And my brother?"
"Right here." Christopher appeared behind the two men standing in front of me, his face guilty.
He looked solemnly at the nurse. "Look, I have to get ready, but te could handle this, right?"
I pointed my pinky at him. "We're the Thomases. We could handle anything."
He laughed and kissed my forehead. "I'll see te in the morning."
The nurse pressed the button on the capsule, which sprayed anesthetic gas around.
I waved at him before falling asleep once again.
"We're the Thomases. We could handle anything."
