The baby is still in the incubator, and both Alex and Mere manage to get themselves up though Mere has a nasty gash on her head. She immediately reaches down and opens the incubator, pulling out the baby. Alex thinks she's insane but she shows that her mothering instincts are alive and strong and tells him that the baby was just thrown around inside a plastic box and needs to be held and have a human touch. Alex accepts this but tells her they have to get out, and when Mere points out how much stuff she is hooked up to Alex just quickly figures out what each of them can grab (oxygen, IV, etc.) so that they can go outside and take their chances. The open the door and step out to find that the rain has stopped... but in front of them is an overturned truck, on fire, and three bodies lying in the road. (At first, I was sure these were dead bodies but I am not entirely sure if that's the case.) They must be in some serious shock because all they do is stare as Mere finishes up with a question: When we have some kind of little bad thing happen, would it help if we could see what gigantic horrible thing was on the horizon? "Would we have known that those were the best moments of our lives?" Well, we will have to answer that question in a few weeks, dear readers. While we ponder, I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!
