Someone Like You
Chapter 5: All I Have Left
Kerry felt even more lost and alone after she was asked to leave Honey's ward. Yvonne and Honey were the only two people who knew about her pregnancy and now she couldn't see Honey and Yvonne was at work. She didn't know who to turn to, the only person she could think to go to was Smithy. Kerry was still unsure of her next move. She had told Honey she had booked the appointment for her abortion but she still wasn't sure if she was going to go through with it. She knew a baby would drastically change the relationship between herself and Smithy which had been going so well but she knew that if Smithy did want the baby he would find it hard to forgive her if she terminated it. Kerry had so much to think about and it didn't help that Smithy was still in a critical condition from the crash. Kerry stood still in the corridor, she knew she couldn't go back to Honey's ward but she didn't know if she was ready to face Smithy. She took an uncertain step forward.
"Would you look where you're going?" Gina Gold demanded. "Oh, Kerry it's you. Are you okay?" She asked, her voice becoming sympathetic when she realised who it was.
"Uh, yeah fine thanks ma'am." Kerry replied vaguely, Gina was having none of it.
"I'm just about to go and see Smithy, do you want to come as well?" Gina asked.
"Uh...um..." She stuttered.
Gina took her firmly by the arm. "C'mon Kerry, he'll be pleased to see you."
Kerry didn't have the strength to argue.
"What's up Phil?" Mrs Hunter asked as she saw the expression on Phil's face.
"Nothing honey, I'm fine. Just tired." He said, loud enough for Stuart to hear, he turned and glared at Phil. Sam turned around to avoid laughing although she knew she shouldn't find their rift amusing because it had nearly cost their marriage the night before.
"Good, I'm working with Zain on a case so I'll see you later." Sam replied, giving him a quick kiss. Phil smiled after she had gone, this annoyed Stuart further. He couldn't stand Phil and it had been a blow to find out that he was married to Samantha.
"Did you know the DI has paired Phil and Stuart together today?" Zain asked as Sam perched on the edge of his desk.
"No." Sam replied. "Somehow I think that might be a bad idea."
Zain nodded in agreement. "Could be an interesting day." He mused.
"You think Suzie should've got the job don't you?" Sam asked.
"Honestly yes I do. I'm not saying Stuart isn't good at his job but I think they could've waited a little bit longer to see if Suzie had passed her sergeant's exams before hiring someone new."
"Fair enough." Sam nodded, pleased that Zain had been honest. "Let's go then."
"Philippa?" He asked incredously as he entered the reception area. Nothing could have prepared him for this. His first thought was what could be so important that she had to see him in the middle of the night.
"Neil!" She exclaimed, sitting up and rushing towards him. Philippa stopped inches from him and they looked at each other awkwardly before Jack and Mickey came over to intervene.
Mickey escorted Philippa to an interview room while Jack took Neil to one side of the reception area.
"What the hell is going on?" Neil demanded of his superior. He was close to bursting point and still he was none the wiser.
"Yvonne phoned through to CID because Philippa wouldn't talk to anyone else but you. She said it was urgent but she wouldn't tell us anything at all. The only way to find out what's going on was to ring you." Jack explained.
"I haven't seen her since the divorce was finalised." Neil said quietly. He hadn't be prepared for meeting Philippa again so soon. Things were awkward enough between them as it was. "I don't think I'm ready to face her."
Jack looked at him sympathetically but as usual the job had to come first.
"If she wants to talk to you, it's your responsibility to do so. Not as an ex husband but as a Detective Inspector." Jack told him.
Neil nodded his head slowly. "I know guv." He walked towards the interview room where Philippa would be waiting and went to meet his fate.
