Friends Till The End

Chapter 2: Meeting the new doctor

When the bell finale rang to signal the end of the day, Val helped the kids get there things in order and off to where they were going. Val than got her stuff ready and headed for home.

"Hey I'm back." Val said as she was coming in the door to her house.

"Mommy!" Carrie jumped off the couch and ran to her mom and gave her a hug.

"How is everything going?" Val asked Susan.

"Oh she was very good. She just got done eating and she took a nap."

"Well, that's good. We got to go to the doctors off honey and met your new doctor and hopefully your test results will be back." Val started to gather what they would need and told Susan thanks and headed off for the hospital.

"Ok Carrie, let's go." Val parked the car and started to get out.

"Why did I get a new doctor mommy?"

"I don't know. I guess we will find out when we meet him." Val gave her daughter a smile.

Val and Carrie headed to the nurses station and they checked in and went to sit down and wait to be called back to meet the new doctor.

"Carrie Linear, this way please." The nurse called them back and pointed to the conference room that they would be in. "Your new doctor will be in, in just a few minutes. Until then here is a coloring book you can use." The nurse smiled at Carrie.



"Hi I have been assigned to be your new doctor. My name is…."

"JAMIE!" Val shouted after seeing her long time friend.

"Val? What are you doing here? I'm supposed to be…"

"This is my daughter Carrie."

"You two know each other?" Carrie asked her mommy.

"Yeah, this is Jamie Waite, the guy I told you about from high school." Val smiled at Jamie.

"Oh. The Rebel. I gotcha. Nice to meet you. So you're my new doctor? What happened to Dr. Ralphy?"

"Well, I'm new to this town, and I deal with the same thing that she does, and they thought I might have a better shot at helping you in the long run. Is that ok with you?" Jamie asked Carrie.

"Yes Sir. Any friend of my mom's is a friend of mine."

"Ok now that we have met, we still have time to wait until your test results get back. I put aside 30 minutes to spend with you getting to know you, so let's do just that."

"Jamie, I just can't believe this. I haven't seen you since high school. How have you been?"

"Been good. I went all the way and became a doctor. I never got married, yet. And I decided to adopt this little girl after her mom died and her daddy left her. Her mom was a real good friend of mine in college. So I took over and got her." Jamie explained his story.

"Well, during college I meet this guy, and started dating him, got married, had Carrie, and than she got diagnosed with this, and he spilt. But that was 3 years ago. So we've been doing well, even better since he left. Right honey?"

"That's right." Carrie looked up from coloring, "Whatever you say mommy."

"Sorry to hear that." Jamie had a sad look in his eyes, "I'm sorry this is happening to you and Carrie."

"Thanks. But we are dealing with it. Wait, you said you adopted a little girl and moved here. How old is she?" Val asked thinking of her new student in class.

"She is the same age as Carrie, just a day apart."

"Would her name be Emily Blackville by any chance?" Val asked.

"Yeah. How do you know?" Jamie was getting curious.

"Oh. I forgot to mention this to you. I'm a first grade teacher at the school and I had a new student come in today and that is her."

"Well, at least I know her teacher is a great woman." Jamie smiled, "Let me go check to see if the test results are in yet." Jamie got up and left.

'Wow, I can't believe Jamie is going to be the new doctor. This is so cool. I hope we can go back out again. I can't believe I just said that. I still like him? No I'm over him. I have to be. But what if I'm not. I wonder if Carrie likes him. Should I ask her if I can date him? What's it to her? Well she is my kid and it has been me and her for 3 years now and but what if….' Val was thinking.

"I got the results back in." Jamie said coming back into the room.

Carrie got up from where she was sitting and went by her mom and held her hand. More so for her mom than for her.

"Well, it looks to me that Carrie is……"

A/N: What's going to happen? Is Carrie going to be sick again or is she OK? Well Review and encourage me to write more and I just might do that. If you have any ideas please e-mail me at thanks. And please, please review. Remember I had no beta reader for this chapter so please be nice.
