Abby walked back down to curtain three and looked down at the sleeping form of the first love of her life. He hadn't changed much since she last saw him, but she noticed how pale he was. 'What did he do to himself?' She asked herself. She got out his chart and began reading it. When she looked back at Michael, he was slowly waking up. His eyes blinked open and looked straight at Abby. She could tell that he instantly recognized her.

"Abby?" He choked out. She only nodded. "What are you doing here?"

"I work here." She stated.

"You're a doctor?" He aske hopefully. Abby remembered the time when she told him she wanted to be a doctor.

"Im a nurse."

"Well I guess we're both not living our dreams huh?" He said with a laugh.

Abby smiled and also remembered the time when he told her that he wanted to be a writer, or a rock star. "Obviously" Abby said. She knew it was harsh, but she was mad.

"Abby, I can explain-"

"Save it." Abby interrupted "I could care less about what you have to say. The bottom line is you have a seven year old daughter out there waiting for you to wake up."

"I told Candy not to bring her." He said trying to sit up. Abby helped him.

"Oh yeah, I ran into her too. She told me to tell you that she was leaving and she said that you would know what that meant."

"I knew she was just after what I had." Michael said. Abby assumed he was talking about drugs.

"I really don't want to talk about this now. What I really wanted to tell you was that Social Services will have to speak with you."

"What? Why?" He nearly fell out of bed when he heard her words.

"Because you're an addict and you have a little girl!" Abby almost screamed.

"You cant take her awat from me. When her mother died, I could barely take care of myself, let alone a 3 year old girl. But now I don't know how I could survive without her." He had tears pooling in the corner of his eyes. Abby guessed that he wasn't an addict my choice. But he was still on addict. She was breifly reminded of Carter.

"I'll see what I can do, you know that, but I'm not the only one who knows about you". With that, Abby walked out of curtain three to find Susan and tell Abigail that her father was awake.
