She narrowed her eyes

“What about a plate?”

“Didn’t see it,” the boyfriend said, finding his voice. “I looked. He backed up as soon as he hit them, and headed west.”

“What type of truck, son?” the cop asked, seeing he was going to have to join in versus take control.

“Dodge Ram,” the boyfriend said, “Black, two-door, short box on the back.”

“Any previous damage, identifying marks?” the cop asked, writing in his pad. “Was he alone in the vehicle?”

“Don’t remember any other marks. I only saw one shadow inside the vehicle,” the boyfriend added.

The ambulance attendants wandered up, one with a kit in his hand. “Ma’am, can I have a look at your arm?” he asked, seeing her support it.

She didn’t need him yanking on her. “I know it’s dislocated.”

“Okay, sir, can I get in there?” He put a hand on Thane, and got a frightening glare in return.

“Take her to the hospital. Mace, how’re you doing?” Thane asked, giving him a once-over.

“Going to be sore tomorrow, that’s about it.”

“Ma’am, it looks like you can walk. Come with me, and we’ll take you to the hospital,” the attendant said.

“I don’t need to go,” she protested, taking a step away from him.

Thane gently grasped her. “Kayla, you’re going to the hospital.”

“I hate hospitals,” she said, raising her voice, since the Captain obviously had a hearing problem. “Caleb can take care of it, and a couple pain killers will do the rest.”

“No.”

“Yes,” she barked back.

The cops and paramedics heads ping-ponged between them.

Mace sighed, and walked around Thane, putting a hand to her back. “They do this all the time. Come on, you stubborn mule. Let’s go.”

“I’m not going.” She rooted her feet to one spot.

The Captain leaned over her with his “I’m the boss” look blazing in his eyes. “If you don’t get moving, I will give you a spanking right here, right now, in front of everyone. Get in the damn ambulance.”

There’s no way he’d do it. She narrowed her eyes to mirror his. “This is not a big deal. Stop acting like an overbearing asshat.”
