Lu opened her eyes, frowning slightly. She'd stretched her arm across the bed to her boyfriend, Mickey, but all she felt were the sheets and the empty spot where he'd been last night.

She got up, wrapping the covers around her, and went into the kitchen. Mickey was there, hovering over a frying pan.

"Hey," he said by way of greeting. "What are you doing up? I was going to make you breakfast in bed."

Lu smiled, and slipped her arms around him from behind. She turned her head, leaning against his back.

"So, you doing anything tonight?" he asked hopefully.

"Actually, yeah." Lu said. "Marc's coming home. He's been with his dad the past week or so."

"I noticed." Mickey said, flashing back to the past few nights, when he and Lu had had the apartment to themselves. Those had been very, very good nights.

Lu laughed, guessing correctly what he was thinking of, and playfully jabbed his arm. He retaliated by lightly spraying her with water from the sink. They were both laughing now, and she moved toward the table to get away from the water.

Suddenly, she started feeling dizzy. She had to grab on to the table to keep steady. Mickey rushed over to help her into a chair.

"Lu, what's wrong?" he asked, kneelnig down in front of her.

She shook her head. "It's nothing, I'm just a little dizzy, is all."

He looked at her suspiciously. "Luisa, you're a doctor. You of all people shouldn't just be brushing this off. Are you sure you're not sick or something?"

She nodded, touched by his concern. "I'm sure. I'm probably just hungry." she added, glancing at the frying pan containing eggs that were dangerously close to burning.

"Well, Doctor Delgado, if you're sure," he said, getting up. "I think it's time for breakfast."

He served her the eggs with a glass of orange juice, then took some for himself. They took their time eating, joking around until finally Lu kicked him out, due to the fact that they both had to get ready for work. Her dizzy spell was completely forgotten, until, when she was in her room getting dressed, she was hit with another. This time, it was accompanied by nausia. Lu ran into the bathroom.

Minutes later, she emerged again. She sat on her bed, thermometer in her mouth, but her temperature was normal. In fact, she felt absolutely fine. She went back into the bathroom to brush her teeth, wonder if Mickey had remembered to check the expiration date on those eggs. Chalking it up to bad food, Lu dismissed her symptoms and finished getting ready for work.
