Disclaimer: I don't own any of the Btvs characters or any of the ER characters and I'm not making any money from this. If I were I would already have a new laptop and not have to use this crappy thing. lol.
Pairings: It mentions Buffy/Angel but it's not BA. Actually it's Buffy/Mark Green. Weird huh? But I thought I'd try this out since nobody has written this before. As far as I know anyway.
Summary: After going through a divorce, Buffy moves to Chicago and works as an ER doctor at County Hospital. This move will change her life forever but whether the change is good or bad us up to her. Will she let herself love again?
Rating: Um…If you can watch Btvs then you can read this.
Feedback: Yep! Don't make me go all "Bride of Chucky" on you. "If I took the time to cook you can at least wash a dish!!!" Well same thing applies here people! I took the time to write this, you can at least take 30 seconds to review. Plus I need to know how people feel about this pairing. Constructive criticism welcome.
Dedication: To Anthony Edwards, cuz I think he rocks! Did you see him in Top Gun? Awesome! If you haven't seen the movie, it's worth the rent! Get it! Get it!
AN: This is AU. All human. Buffy and Angel were married for 17 years before getting a divorce after Angel cheated on her. They have 4 kids not including Connor cuz he's Darla's kid, not Buffy's, but Darla is dead so Buffy is the only mom Connor has ever known.
In ER Susan Luis left 2 months ago so Mark is kinda over it but not completely. He didn't get beat up or any of that stuff.
Things you need to know:
Buffy legally adopted Connor when he was 6 months old. He is 17 in this story. His birthday is April 7, 1989.
Kal-El was born 7 months after Connor so he is 17 also. His birthday is November 9, 1989.
Harry and Talan are twins. Harry was born first. They are both 15. Their birthday is July 31, 1991.
Kailee is the youngest. She is 11. Her birthday is September 23, 1995.
"Mark." Kerry Weaver called as she walked down the hall towards him.
"That new Pediatrician is going to be stopping by sometime today to check the place out and get her schedule. You going to be here?"
"Yeah. I'm not leaving till 6:00. Plus I wanna make sure Doug doesn't give her a hard time." Make said as she caught up with him.
"He still not happy about having her here?"
"He'll get over it. I think he liked being the main Pedi's doc around here. Now we got someone else coming in…I wouldn't be too thrilled either."
"Hmm. Well when she comes I'll show her around for a bit them send her to you and Doug."
"Sounds good. When is she starting her shifts?"
"First thing Wednesday morning."
"Wednesday? Why not Monday?"
"She just moved out here and her apartment isn't ready yet. There were some maintenance problems so she couldn't move in on time. She just got the place yesterday so she has to unpack and at least make the place semi-livable."
"Wow. Sounds hectic. Will she even be able to start by Wednesday?"
"She says yes. I offered to give her another week but she declined."
"Strange. Well better for us. We could use the help around here."
"Well I've got a patient. Page me if you need me." Make said then walked away.
Buffy Summers walked in to County Hospital at 3:00 pm and walked up to the desk.
The girl behind the desk was tall brunette who looked to be in her early twenties and reminded Buffy of Faith a little bit.
"Yeah?" The woman asked.
"Um I'm Buffy Summers. I'm the new Pedi's transfer. I'm here to see Kerry Weaver."
"Oh yeah. Hang on." She paged Weaver and told Buffy she would be with her in a minute, before going back to her magazine.
Buffy took a moment to look around the small entrance hall. The place looked a bit smaller than Sunnydale Methodist but she could see herself working here.
"Miss Summers?" A redheaded woman asked as she approached. She was about Buffy's height and walked with a crutch and had a stern face.
"Hi. I'm Kerry Weaver." She shook Buffy's hand. "I'm Chief Resident."
"Nice to meet you."
"Likewise. Well let's get started, shall we."
Kerry Weaver proceeded to lead Buffy down several different hallways, pointing out rooms and different equipment and explaining policy.
"Ok now that we've got that out of the way you can meet Dr. Greene and Dr. Ross. Dr. Ross is the other pediatrician you'll be working with."
They enter the staff room and saw two men seated at a table. One was good looking with wavy dark hair with small flecks of gray and brown eyes. The other was nearly completely bald, but still looked really good, with beautiful blue eyes.
"Mark, Doug, this is Buffy Summers, the new Pedi's transfer."
"Hi. Nice to meet you."
"Pleasure is mine, I'm sure." The dark-haired on said and shook her hand. "Doug Ross."
"Mark Greene." The other man said and shook her hand as well.
"Well you two can let her in on anything she needs to know and answer any of her questions, I'm sure." Dr. Weaver said.
"Of course." Mark agreed.
And she left the room.
"So Miss Summers, any questions?" Mark asked.
"No, and it's Buffy, please."
"Sure." He gestured for her to take a seat and she did.
"You know, you really don't have to start Wednesday. I understand you just moved here from California. I'm sure you need some time to settle."
"Oh no. I'm fine with starting Wednesday. As for settling, two of my sons are flying in early to give me hand, though it's probably just an excuse to get out of school."
"Oh, well if you're sure…"
Ok. I need feedback. I haven't seen this pairing done before so I need to know what people think. Pretty please!
