Lily doesn't want anything to happen to Rosaleen as she's all she has. The odds of the men who beat her up (racists) getting in trouble were nil and none; she knew that the one who'd get in trouble or be hurt further would be Rosaleen. Lily tricks the security guard by making a phony phone call and slips out of the hospital with Rosaleen.
