Genesis continued to watch the clock while she waited for the results of her x-ray. She needed to be out of the hospital before Isis showed up.
Dr. Taylor came back into the room moments later.
“Your x-rays were clear. Aside from the bruising and cut on your neck, there doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with you. You are free to leave.”
He handed her papers to sign.
“Thank you.” Genesis signed the papers and handed them back. He gave her a copy.
“You better hurry,” he said before leaving the room. Genesis was pretty sure that he was laughing at her.
She looked up at the time. Crap. Genesis jumped down from the bed and began dressing.
Fully dressed in her uniform, she left the exam room and made her way to the exit. Genesis spotted Isis first. She seemed to be in her own world and not paying much attention. If Genesis hadn’t been so determined to get out unseen she might have stopped and scolded her for not being aware of her surroundings at all times.
Genesis pulled her hair loose from its ponytail and let it fall in her face. It was the closest thing she had to a disguise. She had almost made it to the door when her name was called.
Genesis stopped and slowly turned to face her sister. Green eyes met eyes the color of the sky.
“Hey Ice, what’s going on?” she said, nonchalantly.
“You tell me. What are you doing here?” Isis asked. She walked over to Genesis. Crap, Genesis thought.
“Oh, I just had to see a doctor,” Genesis said, slowly inching towards the door. She could see that Isis was giving her a once over.
“Are you hurt?” Isis asked, alarm filling her voice.
“No, I’m fine.”
“What happened to your neck?” Double crap.
Isis rarely missed anything and Genesis knew given the time she was going to notice the bruising. Her hair covered most of it but Isis saw enough.
“If it’s nothing why won’t you tell me and why are you backing away from me?” Isis took a step towards Genesis.
“I’ll tell you at home,” Genesis said, trying to drop the conversation.
“Yeah, I promise. I really have to go.” Genesis turned and walked over to Chris who was waiting by the door.
He gave a nod to Isis and followed Genesis out of the door.
Isis watched as her sister hurried out of the hospital. She couldn’t believe that she had been here and worse, Isis had almost missed her.
Isis had woken in a good mood and was happy to be at work. She had been thinking about how good things were going for her and almost missed Genesis’ partner Chris standing by the exit. It was like having a vague memory of something; which is why she turned around. She wanted to see if she had actually seen him or if her mind were playing tricks on her. She wasn’t expecting to see Genesis trying to make a dash for the exit. And worse she had tried to disguise herself. Putting her hair in her face was so lame. Didn’t she know that Isis would recognize her anywhere? They were sisters for crying out loud. Had grown up in the same house. Hell, Genesis had even raised her for two years before her eighteenth birthday. She would always be able to spot her sisters.
Isis was determined to find out why Genesis had needed to make a visit to the emergency room. She wouldn’t have unless it was really serious. Genesis had always been very healthy. Not even catching so much as the common cold.
Isis loved her job as a trauma nurse but it was one of her biggest fears to have any of her sisters needing the type of care that she gave people on a daily bases. She let Genesis leave but she wasn’t going to wait until her shift ended to find out what happened.Advertisements
