It was another slow day at the ER and thankfully to all, Dr. Weaver was not there. Most of the staff were sprawled around the admin desk. Carter was laughing at Abby's futile attempt to control her hair, and she was glaring at him. Susan was surrounded by a slew of nurses admiring the newly situated ring on her left hand. Luka was doing a quick round of the ER, flocked by none other then Julie Smart herself. His usual patient disposition was quickly being tested by the incessant questions and frequent stops he had to make while Julie picked one thing or another off the floor than she had knocked over.
He was almost relieved to hear the incessant beeping coming from the trauma room closest him, it gave him a chance to do something productive. Julie Smart followed him as he raced into the room and took a moment to study the monitor. He picked up the paddles and spread the gel while and Carter and Halle ran in behind him.
Carter took a spot on the opposite side of the gurney, beside his med student, and prepared the patient.
"Julie, have you ever shocked a patient before?" Luka asked.
Julie hesitated before nodding. She opened her mouth to say something, but Luka had already pushed the paddles into her hands.
"Oh, no, you see it really didn't go well the first time," she tried saying, but her hands were already being expertly led to the correct place on the patients chest.
"Just relax, and take a breath," Luka told her, his hand still resting the patient. Carter was readjusting the patient's arm.
But Julie couldn't wait. Her hands instinctively tightened on the handles, without her consent. She knew what was going to happen before it happened. Both doctor's were knocked backwards, right off their feet, and onto the floor."
"Clear," Julie said quietly to herself before dropping the paddles, letting out a sob and racing out of the room to the bathroom she had spent the better part of the week in.
AN: Well, that's it. Loved it, Hated it, feel indifferent, pleeze let me know if you got a sec. I hope you liked it. I'm really sorry about the substantial delays in writing this story, I checked my original post date and it's a year minus five days to today. Wow, that's a long time. Anyway, I want to thank-everyone who reviewed and kept me writing, the dominating, borderline threatening reviews are probably the ones that got me the finish it this soon. I would like to extend my thanks to Kitkatgurl, ("Hey, Kitkat!") who was pushier than anyone else, and got me to finish the story, even if she didn't carry out her half of the deal. Anyway, I know I left the ending up a little with the question of Luka and Carter switching bodies. It's safe to say I will not be continuing or adding a sequel but if someone out there wants to write it, send me an e-mail. Thanks again for all the reviews. Oh, and PS to Sqully, please don't kill yourself. Lol.
