The couple awoke the next morning totally euphoric.
"Hey, you," she said.
"Hey, yourself," he said, kissing his wife.
"So, are you going to tell me where we're going today for the next three days," she asked, leaning over her husband.
"I thought we'd take a trip to Tahoe. Thought we'd take the train there so we don't have to worry about anything," he said.
"That sounds like a wonderful idea. When do we leave," she asked.
"Soon as you pack, babe," he said.
Julianna, reluctantly, got out of the bed and, grabbing Johnny's shirt from the chair, slipped it on. She took the duffel bags from the closet and started putting clothes in them.
Johnny propped himself up in the bed on his elbow and watched her. He couldn't believe how incredibly sexy his wife looked in his shirt.
She knew he was staring at her. "You going to sit there and stare at me all day or are you going to help so we can get out of here? We only have three days before we HAVE to come back. We won't get a vacation from LA for another four months," she said, turning around.
Johnny got out of the bed and kissed his wife. "Whatever you say," he said.
They packed their bags and took off for their honeymoon. They hated the short time they had, but they were going to make a bigger trip in a few months and they were just happy to be together.
Johnny reported to his first shift since the wedding. He couldn't be happier. He opened his locker and started to change his shirt.
Roy came in a few minutes later. "Hey! How's married life," Roy asked, opening his locker.
"Great. Just great," Johnny said.
Julianna reported to work that morning like Johnny. She went to Brackett's office.
"Morning, Kel," she said.
"Juli! How's life as a married woman," he asked.
"It's good. We had a great time in Tahoe. Hated to come back to reality," she said.
"Well, reality awaits," Kelly said.
"I wanted to know if you can get me the paperwork to change my name on my medical license. I have already filed the paperwork to change my name on everything else," she said.
"That shouldn't be a problem. You just have to bring a certified copy of the marriage license. You can have your name changed here right away, but be careful with signing things until you have that new license in your new name," he said.
"I'll need that time to get used to it. Johnny actually seemed shocked that I was changing my name to his," she said.
"Well, it was a wonderful ceremony and I'm glad you allowed me to witness it. You ready to get back to work," he asked.
"Yeah. Johnny's working today," she said.
Johnny worked his shift and couldn't wait to get home to Julianna. She was working the a 24 hour shift in two days and they wouldn't get to see each other during for a few days.
"Hey, Leelee! I'm home," he said. Julianna came out of the kitchen and gave him a kiss. "I missed you," he said.
"I missed you, too," he said.
"I fixed you some breakfast. Thought we could spend a few hours this morning, before you have to head to bed" she said.
"Sounds like a plan to me," he said.
Julianna laughed and poured her husband some coffee. "If you're on your best behavior, I might join you," she said, smiling at him. They talked about what to do on their next weekend off before Johnny went up to bed and Julianna headed off to the store.
She returned several hours later and found him still sleeping in their bed. She was heading into work that 11 the following morning and working a 24 hour shift. They were short-staffed since Julianna returned from her honeymoon.
She snuggled next to her husband who immediately wrapped his arms around her. Despite them only sharing a bed for a few days, it already felt strange to sleep in the bed without him.
"What are you going to do while I'm working? You have to go in tomorrow at 8, right," she asked.
"I'll probably do a little fixing up in the barn," he said.
"Promise me, you'll be careful," she said.
"I'm always careful. You sure you're up to this 24 hour shift," he asked.
"Yeah, It shouldn't be too difficult," she said.
"Will you stop by and see me when you leave in the morning," he asked, his eyes filled with concern.
"Promise," she said, before sitting down and eating the spaghetti she fixed.
They shared dinner and watched some television before they both turned in for bed. Of course, they didn't get much sleep.
Julianna and Johnny shared a quick breakfast. Julianna was working her 24 hour shift and Johnny would be at home alone for most of her shift.
"Bye. Love you. Will you stop by and see me before you go home? I want to make sure you're OK," he said.
"I promise. Love you," she said. They shared a quick kiss before Julianna headed out the door.
Johnny watched her car head down the driveway and waved until she was out of sight. He put his hand on the doorway and the sun caught his wedding ring. He smiled.
He headed back into the house to change and do some work around the ranch.
Julianna spoke with Johnny twice before he left to report for his shift.
Despite telling Johnny it would be an easy shift, she was bone tired when she signed out her last patient to Kel. He had apologized for putting her on the 24, but they had been severely short-staffed and he knew Julianna would appreciate having a few extra days off.
"I'll see everyone in a few days," she said, yawning.
"You want to crash in the call room, Juli," Kel asked.
"No, I'm going to head to the station and see Johnny and Mike," she said.
She waved bye and headed to her car. She drove to the station and buzzed the door.
Mike let her inside the station. "Hey, Juju. What are you doing here," he asked.
"I wanted to see Johnny and you. I realized I'm too tired to drive home," she said.
"Well you can probably catch a nap on Johnny or my bed in the dorm," Mike said.
"Thanks. Where is Johnny," she asked as Mike walked her to the dorm.
"He and Roy went to Marina Del Ray to an emergency. Their supposed to meet a helicopter and go for a rescue in the water," Mike said.
He pointed to Johnny's bed and his and told her to take her pick. She sat down on Johnny's bed and took off her shoes.
"Thanks, bro," she said. Mike pulled the blanket around her and left the dorm.
Roy and John met with the other crew of paramedics waiting to board the chopper.
When they rushed to board, the pilot stopped them. "I've only got room for two of you this time. We'll get the other two on the second run," the pilot said.
51 looked at 99. They didn't know what to do, since both squads wanted to be on the run.
"Guess we'll flip you for it," Johnny said.
Roy flipped a coin and one team was able to board the chopper.
"Better luck next time," Johnny said as the doors to the helicopter closed.
Mike was sitting with the rest of the guys waiting for the squad to come back or a call to come. They heard the tones, but the announcement was one they didn't believe.
"Station 65, Squad 39. Copter crash at Marina del Ray. Code-I reported at location. There is a fire burning on the boardwalk. Time out 1331."
The air was sucked out of the room at the announcement. Mike immediately thought of how he would break this news to this sister. He knew, once the Captain got the word, she would be hearing it along with Joanne.
