Can she open his eyes to a world without scalpels and scrubs? Will he win her heart with his unassuming manner and charm? This is where their story begins.

Episode 122 ~ Alone Part 3

Sorry to be a tease.  The story post is coming tomorrow.  I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy (what’s left of) Hanukkah. The mess in this picture are the scribblings of Episodes 122, 123, & 124.  My life took a very difficult turn about 2 months ago.  I won’t torture…

Episode 121~ Alone Part 2

One by one, she brewed and assembled everyone’s coffees, popping a K cup out and another one in, until there were four piping hot coffees exactly as they each liked them. It only occurred to Carrie as she retrieved an insulated tumbler for Nathan’s coffee, that he and David took their coffees exactly the same…

Episode 120 ~ Us

They rode quietly, crammed in the backseat of the cab; Legacy’s head on Carrie’s shoulder, shivering wasn’t cold. Nathan sat on Carrie’s other side. He spoke quietly with the driver, giving the address and chatting about the Mets just to give the girls some privacy. “Are you going to be OK?” He heard Carrie whisper….

Episode 119 ~ Do You Still Love Him?

“How was your night?” Daniel asked, yawning with fake cheerfulness.   He’d stormed off when Dorough had been talking to Amy the night before. He was hoping that she’d forget. Amy turned to him, a look on her face he couldn’t interpret.   “Not now, Daniel. I’m tired.”   “Not now, what? All I said…

Episode 118 ~ Alone (Part 1)

“Am I making mistake,” Legacy asked. She’d been sitting for hours not under arrest but refusing to talk. The officer had brought her a Coke; the “good cop” she surmised until the other one, the woman sitting with her now, offered her part of a sandwich. “You are within your rights to wait for your…

Episode 117 ~ It All Works Out

Oh, God,” Nathan groaned. “This unreal! I love being inside you…” She gripped his shoulders hard. So hard that her nails dug into his skin. So consumed by her, by the feeling of joining their bodies, Nathan barely felt the pain. Carrie, he had to keep reminding himself, was new at this. It took everything…

Episode 116 ~ Country Roads

“Hi,” David answered cautiously.  Ayla had tried calling him a few times and though they had talked he’d managed to keep the conversations short. He was driving a rental car from the Pittsburgh airport to the last stop on his book tour. He’d had drivers on every stop except for this one and had purposely…

Episode 115 ~ Something New

“Show me something new,” Carrie blushed. They were fresh from a hot shower, their skin still red, the hallway filled with steam. He followed her into her room, where she dropped her towel and then yanked his from his waist, leaving them both warm and naked. “I thought this,” he said, winking as he laced…

Episode 114 ~ The Long Day is Over

Amy stood, rocking back and forth on her heels, awkwardly picking at her nails while she waited for Nate to get off the phone with her.  He was cautious enough to have a polite conversation so as not to rub anything in but it was always obvious. His dimple flashed more than usual, probably because…

Episode 113 ~ Smack in the Face

Their cab pulled up in front of the building on 5th. To Legacy, it seemed to tower with all the promises that the city had made to them when they’d first arrived as kids. “This is so unfair!” she pouted. Amanda had been such a bitch when they’d been in design school, always gunning for…

Episode 112~ Back to Life

Just after morning rounds, Nate was headed back to his office to catch up on the charts he’d left before the weekend. He kept his mind on his work but she would creep in unexpectedly and he’d find himself smiling at some rather inexplicable times. Lauren’s condition had improved considerably but with her immune system…

Episode 111 ~ One More Day…

They sat in her living room for hours barely noticing how the day slipped by. To say that the conversation with Daniel was easy would have been a huge exaggeration but for the first time, he actually seemed to be a real person and that at the very least made talking to him a lot…
