As the SS Europa neared New York City, the first thing everyone on board saw was the Statue of Liberty, that is everyone but Alannah. The stranger that was in her suite with her during the remainder of the cruise, was a docrtor and he would let not one soul enter the room. As soon as everyone else was off the ship, Alannah was taken by ambulance to the hospital where she was cared for further by the staff at Mercy Hospital. It turned out that Martin the creepy old Mexican had some how slipped her something that had almost killed her. As Nicolò who had been with her just days prior to her taking ill, he had also been quarantined. Alannah had been taken to Mercy Hospital in New York. Nicolò had never left her side until she was placed in ICU in an oxygen tent, and even then he refused to leave the ICU. Nicolò was the only one who knew her, and when he was asked for her name, he absent mindedly gave it to the hospital staff. The hospital managed to track down the only relative of Alannah in the New York area, her brother.

It would be yet another week before Alannah would be well enough to travel. Nicolò could too his leave from the ship, bid the captain and crew farewell, and stayed behind with Alannah. His ship had left yesterday heading for England. As Nicolò had made a promise to keep Alannah safe he was going to keep that vow, he had fallen in love with her from the first momen he saw her, five years past.
