SOMETHING IN THE WATER
Callie was just putting in her earrings when her beeper sounded. She closed her eyes – this was just not damn fair. She picked her beeper off the bed and looked at it “major rail crash – central Seattle – all surgical staff needed “
Immediately she put her own feelings about missing her date with Amelia out of the window – this could be major and there would be lives to save and she would have to be at the top of her game. She left her earrings in but removed the sleek black dress and opened a drawer to pull out a black tee-shirt to get back into her normal clothes and get to the hospital as quickly as possible.
Amelia had been in her car driving to the restaurant when the message had come through. Cursing she spun her car around and headed towards the hospital. She felt frustrated but this was a just a temporary setback – there was nothing plotting against them. It was just the lives they both lead – and if only a surgeon could understand another surgeon then you had to accept that human catastrophe was going to get in the way of at least 40% of your plans. But she felt that the payback from Callie Torres would make all this worthwhile – the more she looked at her – the more she desired her and the less she desired a man. There wasn’t a man in the hospital that could make her go weak at the knees like the tall and delicious Head of Ortho. For now she was going to have to forget about Callie Torres which was not easy
“What time is it?” Amelia asked Jo Wilson who had been assisting her in the operating theatre. They were now washing their hands before going to check on the woman they had operated on at 10 the night before
“Oh God – do you know if everyone else is still here?”
“I don’t think anyone has been stepped down – mind you that was 3 hours ago”
“You did well in there Wilson”
“Thank you – you are such a fast worker – it scares me “
“I had to work fast – normally I don’t but speed was what was going to save that little boy – not my tidiest work but it worked – we will need to keep an eye on him –do you think the canteen is open?”
“I hope so because coffee is the only thing I can think about “
Amelia removed her surgical gown and followed Jo out of the theatre and down to the canteen. There were several surgeons sitting clutching large cups of coffee – Hunt and Webber were sitting together right beside the door – they had no option but to stop to exchange pleasantries.
