on watch

Josh found Billy and Newt still outside Amy's room. They were sipping coffee now in a hush hush conversation.

"So how goes it?" Josh looked at both of them.

"Slowly, I'm afraid, but she's coming around," Newt spoke up about Amy.

"And you know who else is here, don't you?" Billy chimed in.

"What happened?"

"Ste got hit by a bus." Billy tried to keep from smiling.

"It just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?" Josh smirked.

"Did Simon come with you?"

"Yeah, he's around. I thought he was right behind me. Who knows maybe he's in the loo." Josh leaned against the wall then with Billy and Newt.

"Just don't expect any really bloody miracle with Amy," Newt sighed. "Not just yet. The vitals are there, but she's not talking yet. At least that's what they told me."

"I'm sure she'll come around. She's made it this far," Josh was keeping optimistic. "Why don't you fellows go home and sleep it off."

"That really doesn't sound like a bad idea," Billy eyes Newt.

"Is it really sleep you're thinking of?" Newt was a bit coy.

"You'll just have to wait and see, won't you?" Billy put arm around Newts shoulder. "See ya," Billy finally said to Josh who assumed he was one on watch now.
