I decided to write this quick story tonight….my husband was admitted to the hospital, and I hate staying alone at night, so what can be better than writing about Patrick Jane. Enjoy and review if you want…and I will also work more on "A New Life for Patrick Jane" as soon as my life evens out a bit with my husband's health.
Three Secrets of Patrick Jane
Getting out of his car, Jane looks around and thinks to himself what a beautiful day it is. No sign of rain, white clouds overhead. The weather was perfect, gone was the hot days of summer, and since the air conditioning in the CBI office decided to quit last month all was perfect.
He was whistling to himself as he arrived at the bull pen, everybody was in their right places. Van Pelt was busy on the computer, her fingers rushing over the keys. Cho was busy reading a new book, one that he noticed had been in Lisbon's office for some time. Rigby, well Rigby was busy eating a bowl of cereal. He said good morning to all and they either nodded or say hi back as he headed to his wonderful brown leather couch. He took off his jacket folded it and laid it on the end of the couch and sighed as he laid on it.
His eyes closed he heard the door of Lisbon's office open and the sound of her quick walk coming over to him. He kept his eyes closed as she stood there.
"I know your just waiting for me to open my eyes Lisbon, but if I don't will you go away so I can a short nap?" he says with a smile.
"No, and I'm just not hear to talk to you, so listen up."
He opens his eyes with that remark and sits up. Everyone looks up as Lisbon goes up to Van Pelts desk and lends against.
"Okay, today is the blood drive and each department is supposed to go over the nurse's office and give blood. Our time is in a half hour, so I expect everyone, I mean everyone be ready to go." She gives Jane a look that says a lot in one glance.
Jane stands up and starts for his jacket, but Lisbon is faster, and grabs it. She fishes in the jacket pockets and finds his car keys.
"Not this time Jane…you are so not going to leave this time." She says "Since you have been here you have always had a reason to leave when there is a blood drive." She counts on her fingers "A dentist appointment, you had a long wait at the DMV, that wreck of a car of yours had to be towed. No more excuses."
"I didn't see any posters about it this week, nobody said a word about it, are you sure it's today?" he says feeling this perfect day was not going as planned.
"Well if you would read your e-mail once a day, you would have seen it; it was send every day last week and the beginning of this day." Van Pelt says with a smile.
"They have some great cookies when you're through" Rigby says
"Who knows you might need it someday if our Boss finally hits you with her stapler." Cho says not even looking up from his book.
Lisbon goes closer to Jane, and looks at him. "Is something wrong that you can't give blood Jane?"
"No of course not, it's just that I didn't have any breakfast this morning….is that something you need to do before you give blood?"
"I have some cereal you can have." Rigby says and Jane gives him a dirty look.
"It's time Boss " Van Pelt says standing up. They all get up and start out of the office, Jane follows walking like a man going to his own funeral. A short time later they go into a room set up with cots, tables with nurse's taking information and other nurse's helping people over to a table with cookies and orange juice.
A nurse directs them all to a table, Lisbon grabs Jane by the arm and leads him over to a table and makes sure he sits down, and she goes to her table.
"Your name?" the nurse asks him.
"Patrick Jane" he says in almost a whisper.
She types into her computer. "I see this is your first time giving blood Mr. Jane, I need to take your blood pressure in a moment after I ask a few questions. Do you have a cold or not well today?"
Jane starts to say something, but looks at the others who are watching him. "No, fit as a fiddle"
After a couple of minutes she finishes the questions and smiles at Jane. "Okay, you can go to the table marked five, and it won't take long to finish this.
Jane gets up and goes towards the table; he walks past Van Pelt who is already giving blood, along with Cho. He sees Lisbon put her arm out for the nurse and the nurse ready to put in the needle. Jane stops and sways and slowly falls the floor out for the count.
Lisbon is standing by a cot that Jane is laying on; the rest of the team has left. Jane opens his eyes and see's Lisbon looking at him.
"How are you feeling Jane?" she says to him.
"I guess they didn't take any blood out while I was taking a short nap on the floor?" he says
"No, they usually like a person more awake when they do it. Jane, I've never seen you pass out when you see blood, what happened?"
"All those times I wasn't around to give blood….I have a secret Lisbon. I've tried to give blood in the past, and every time I end up on the floor. I really didn't want to do it in front of the team. You know how Cho and Rigby can be." Jane says his face a little red.
"I'm sure they will understand Jane, they won't make fun of you." She says with a smile.
A nurse comes over with some orange juice and a cookie. "Drink some of this juice and you can get up any time you want." She hands him the juice and then puts a sticker on his shirt that has a drawing of a drop of blood and says I Gave Blood. "I know you didn't give us blood, but you tried Mr. Jane. You're the only one today that passed out." She walks away.
Jane takes off the sticker and frowns as the back of the nurse as she walks off.
"Guess that didn't really make you feel any better?" she says. Jane doesn't even answer.
So much for a perfect day Jane thinks, as he stands up with Lisbon's help.
