For reasons the doctors attending Nadia could not explain, she began to
come out of the drug induced coma they had kept her in for over a year.
She slowly began to awaken despite the efforts of the doctors to keep
her sedated and when she opened her eyes the Rambaldi induced madness
was gone from them.
“Where is my father?” Nadia asked the nurses in a weakened voice,
“Where’s my sister?”
Caroline DuBanks was a part of the team who had been helping to care
for Nadia for most of the year she had been unconscious in the drug
induced coma. She spoke in a quiet voice to Nadia as she finished
taking her pulse, “Dr. Sanark will be in shortly to see you and he’ll
explain to you where your family is.”
Nadia nodded, “All right.” Already her eyes began to get heavy and she
fought to keep from sleeping.
“Ms. Santos, you shouldn’t fight to stay awake,” Caroline’s voice was
soothing her, “Dr. Sanark will still be here to talk to you the next
time you awaken.”
“But...I...need...to see my fam...” Nadia’s voice trailed off as she
fell asleep again.
When Dr. Sanark appeared a few minutes later, Caroline met him outside
Nadia’s room to voice her concerns regarding their patient. The doctor
listened to the nurse closely before he went in to examine her. Nadia
woke up halfway through the doctor’s examination and he smiled at her.
“Ms. Santos, my name is Dr. Sanark - how are you feeling?” he asked.
“Tired,” she replied, trying to move, “Weak.”
“Ms. Santos, what’s the last thing you remember happening?” the doctor
“I remember going to Russia...to stop the end of the world,” Nadia’s
replied, with alarm crossing her face.
“It’s all right, you’re in a CIA medical facility, we know what
happened in Sovogda,” Sanark said, “Ms. Santos, do you remember
fighting with Agent Bristow or even being shot by Mr. Sloane?”
Puzzlement crossed Nadia’s face, “My father shot me?” Dr. Sanark
confirmed it with a nod. “Where is he now?”
Sanark’s face was serious as he answered, “Mr. Sloane was sentenced to
life in prison for his part in what happened in Sovogda, I’m sorry.”
“I can’t see him then?”
“No, I’m sorry,” Dr. Sanark answered.
Tears flooded Nadia’s eyes but she didn’t allow them to escape, and
with a nod she said, “And my sister? You said I fought with her?”
Sanark nodded, “Agent Bristow is fine and has become one of the
Agency’s best handlers.”
“Sydney’s a handler now?” Nadia was again puzzled, “What about the
other members of our team? Jack Bristow, Irina Derevko, and Michael
Vaughn - did they all make it out of Sovogda okay?” If Irina had come
back with the rest of the team, that meant her mother was in prison too
and she wouldn’t be able to see her either. But then again if Irina
somehow had escaped when the mission ended, Nadia knew she still
wouldn’t be able to see her mother because that would mean Irina would
have to risk capture by the CIA to see her youngest daughter.
So either way either way she was without her parents.
“Agents Jack and Sydney Bristow made it out okay, while Ms. Derevko
somehow managed to effect her escape in the aftermath of the crisis,”
Sanark answered, and then looked down at her chart to write a few new
notes. “Ms. Santos, I am going to order some tests to be run to see if
there are any after effects of the Rambaldi water.”
“What about Agent Vaughn, doctor?” Nadia asked, “Did he make it back
Dr. Sanark looked up at her, “Why don’t I call your sister and tell her
you’re awake and want to see her as soon as possible?”
“Vaughn’s dead isn’t he?” Nadia said.
“I think that’s something you should discuss with your sister,” Sanark
replied, “If you’ll excuse me, I’ll go make that phone call.” He left
before Nadia could say another word and as he left, another thought
entered Nadia’s mind.
