I have a situation where two characters run into each other by coincidence, and they're very surprised to see each other. One of them is hurt, which the other notices pretty quickly, and she shows concern for him. It goes something like this:
Her eyes widened. In a rush, she stumbled out, "Jonathan, what happened to you?"
I want to replace "in a rush, she stumbled out" with something more appropriate. I'd like to convey how surprised she is to see him again and how desperate she is to help him.
