“Hey Isis.”
At the sound of her name being called Isis turned around to face Adrianna who was back behind the admissions desk.
“Hey girl,” Isis said. “Do you know why my sister was here?”
“Something happened at work and if you want to know more ask her,” Adrianna answered.
When it came to Adrianna’s job she took it very seriously. Most of the doctors and nurses in the hospital gossiped and shared stories about different patients but Adrianna kept her lips sealed. Everybody else’s business on the other hand, that was up for grabs.
“I wouldn’t dare have you tell me anything you weren’t comfortable sharing,” Isis said sweetly.
“Mmm-Hmm,” Adrianna said, glancing up at her.
“It wouldn’t be breaking any rules to tell me who saw her, now would it?”
“Dr. Taylor and if he knows what is good for him he wouldn’t say anything either.”
“I don’t know what you mean.”
“I mean if you want to know what is up with your sister than you should ask your sister,” Adrianna responded.
“Got it,” Isis said.
Isis figured she would just get the truth out of Dr. Taylor. They were close and she didn’t think he would keep anything from her or would want her to spend the entire day worrying. She walked through the automatic doors and straight to the locker room to change.
Isis put on a pair of clean red scrubs, pulled her hair back into a ponytail and left the locker room. Her first mission was to find Dr. Taylor and find out what had happened with Genesis. She walked over to the nurse’s station.
“Hey Lee,” Isis said, greeting the cute and very gay male nurse sitting in front of one of the computers.
“Oh good, you’re here. Dr. Taylor is in room 2,” he said.
“How did you know I was looking for him?
“I didn’t. He was waiting for you.”
“Oh. Thanks.”
She couldn’t help but smile as she headed towards exam room 2. She knew Taylor wouldn’t keep something this important from her.
Isis never entered a room without knocking first to alert to her presence. She raised her hand to knock but had to hold onto the door to steady herself. She suddenly felt really dizzy. The dizzy spell didn’t last long and soon passed. Isis knocked on the door and then opened it.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt.” She was surprised to find Dr. Taylor with a patient. She expected him to be alone.
“You’re not interrupting. You are right on time,” Dr. Taylor said. He glanced over his shoulder and smiled at her.
The nurses had taken to calling Taylor McSexy. They got the idea from the show Grey’s Anatomy and he was their resident eye candy.
“Can I help with anything?” Isis asked, stepping further into the room and closing the door.
“Yes. You can help me explain to Mrs. Carter that she is going to be just fine,” he said, getting up from his seat.
Mrs. Carter was clutching her chest in pain and moaning in agony. She didn’t look like she was doing fine. Dr. Taylor turned to look at her and mouthed ‘gas’. Isis nodded and turned to face Mrs. Carter. Dr. Taylor picked up her chart and began writing.
“Mrs. Carter, that pain that you are feeling is not severe. They’re just gas pains and they will subside,” Isis said reassuringly.
