A/N-I find it funny that all the slash stories on here are mostly with B.J. and Hawk or Charles/Klinger ( one that I know of ) but never any with Margaret and ? anybody. SO I'm trying this. It will be a one shot.
Margaret was sitting on the edge of her bed reading the letter and she slowly put it down and thought about it. She got up and walked to the window, the window was open so she could feel the cool breeze on her and she closed her eyes then she went and sat down in her chair and thought some more about the letter and she looked around then she went to her closet and pulled back her dresses and Army uniforms that she briefly looked at then she went and put the suitcase on the bed and she goes to her dresser drawer and pulls out panties, bras, socks, pantyhose and in another drawer she gets some shorts and shirts then she goes back to her closet and gets some dresses and carefully packs 2 in then closes it. She looks down at herself and pulls off her housecoat and goes to the closet and pulls out a simple grey dress and goes to the bathroom and changes.
She come back out and grabs her suitcase and doesn't waste time in leaving. She goes down through her living room and she runs for her car and gets in and goes to the bus station and asks for a ticket to *Steel, New York. She gets on the bus and settles in for a long bus ride. It gives her time to think and soak in what the letter said and what she is about to do but she is more sure it is the right thing for her.
She falls asleep on her ride since she didn't leave until after midnight, her sleep is dreamless and amazingly when she wakes up, she feels full of energy, you wouldn't expect that riding on a bus after midnight to a town in New York. The bus driver announces they have arrived at their destination and she gets off and she looks around while she waits for the driver to hand her suitcase from underneath the bus. She gets the letter out of her purse and she asks the driver for directions and he points and says something and she says "Thank you"
She goes down the road to a corner of a street and she calls for a taxi, it stops and she gets in, she tells the driver where to go and ten minutes later she stands in front of a building. She looks up and stares for a few minutes then takes a deep breath and goes up to the doors and opens it, looks around and goes to the mail boxes and looks for a name then pushes a button underneath and a voice asks, "Hello?" "It's me, Margaret" It takes a few seconds then she says, "Margaret! I didn't think you would come! Come on up !"
Margaret gathers her courage and picks up her suitcase and goes up a flight of stairs then she comes to the door and knocks on the door. The door opens and the woman is Lorraine Anderson.
She has always been friends with Lorraine and the last time they saw each other was in Korea, when she and some country pig came to trade places for a week with Hawkeye and another nurse, they had their problems, Lorraine helped her start to break down the walls she had put up around her since becoming head nurse and now...
Lorraine's face beamed when she saw her and she pulls Margaret in and closes the door and says, "I didn't think you would come after I sent the letter" "I couldn't stay away"
Both of them sit down on the couch then Lorraine says, "Excuse me a minute" Margaret shakes her head and Lorraine goes into her bedroom then a few minutes later comes out with a small box, hands it to Margaret and Margaret looks blankly at Lorraine and Lorraine encourages her to open it and she does and there lays 2 sets of gold earrings and Margaret laughs heartily then she asks, "You actually kept them!" Lorraine smiles then says, "Well, yes, they represent a wonderful time in our lives" Margaret quits laughing and smiles then says, "Lorraine..." Lorraine interrupts then says, "I know, it was presumptuous of me of me to send the letter but..." Margaret says softly, "No it wasn't Lorraine...it made me think...all my life I have wanted to be in the army. Being in the army was and is my life...for my father...for me...but as you know, we have to do everything we can to hide a part of our lives to stay in the army" A glimmer of slim hope comes to Lorraine's eyes and she asks, "We?"
Margaret shakes her head then says, "Yes, there's a part of my life that I have kept from you...from everybody...I'm wondering if...I know that's why my marriage didn't work. Or any relationship with a man, I didn't want it to work deep down, I just wanted to put it on for show"
Several minutes pass then Margaret says, "I've...always...been in love...with somebody but I was never able to say anything..." Lorraine's heart beats faster than the subway trains and she walks softly over to Margaret and touches her face and slowly leans in to give her a passionate kiss and at first Margaret's body is stiff and rigid but she relaxes and gives into the kiss then they stop and look at each other then they happily sigh and continue the kisses into the bedroom.
A/N-*Steel, New York is a fictional place as far as I know.
