Summery: At the beginning of her internship, she got pregnant. Almost five years later… She's the best in the Nuero program. She moves to Seattle with her best friend to continue her residency at Seattle Grace Hospital, where her step-father, Richard Webber is chief of surgery. When she gets there… a lot happens… MerAlex. I guess it would be AU.

"Meredith, are you listening?" Meredith jumped at the sound of her voice.

"What? Sorry, Maggie, I'm just… not feeling well."

"Why what's wrong?" Maggie asked out of genuine concern. Meredith shook her head.

"I don't know. I guess I'm just tired." She put her head down on the counter.

"Alright." Maggie said shrugging throwing a couple things into the trash. "I can't believe we're going to Seattle."

"It's a great opportunity." Meredith said with a sigh. "It's the top teaching hospital in the program."

"It's across country." Maggie argued.

"I can't do this alone, Mags" She sighed.

"I'm coming, Mer. Don't worry about it." Maggie said.

"We can live at my mom's old house. The kids will love it." Meredith said standing up.

"I'm going to bed." She called walking out.

"Alright, night."

"Goodnight." Maggie called.


Meredith laid in bed remembering the day Maggie and she had met.

"Hi." The woman said looking over at Meredith.

"Hey." Meredith said wiping a tear from her cheek. The curtain was mostly pushed back so they could see each other. Balloons, flowers, and gifts filled the other side of the room, but Meredith's side was empty.

"I'm Maggie Hogg." She introduced herself with a warm smile. She had dirty blonde hair and blue eyes.

"Meredith Grey." Meredith said adjusting the IV in her hand. "Congratulations, by the way."

"Yeah you too." Maggie smiled again. "What did you have?"

"A boy."

"Oh, congratulations." Meredith smiled. "What is his name?"

"Carson," She answered.

"Oh my god. That is such a cute name." Meredith smiled.

"Thanks… What about you? What's your daughter's name?"

"Whitney." Maggie smiled.

"Is she with your husband or boyfriend or whatever?"

"Actually… I don't have either… My boyfriend left after he found out I was pregnant."

"Oh god, I'm sorry I didn't know."

"It's fine… What about you?"

Meredith looked down. "I'm not sure where he is. We were in med school together. He left for a different internship without telling me where before I found out about being pregnant."

"I'm sorry, too…. Where is Carson?"

"He's one and a half months premature. But he's doing remarkably well."

"That's good. Whitney is getting checked by the neonatal doctor. There was a small complication early on, so…"

Meredith nodded little did she know that Maggie would become the person who helped her through everything. That was a little over four years ago.

Meredith rolled over on her side and fell asleep.


"Mags!" Meredith called as they walked through the gate into the waiting room. She had a carry-on bag on one shoulder and was holding Carson in her other arm. The group had been separated in the sea off people.

"Right here, Mer." Maggie said coming up behind her carrying Whitney.

Carson had dark blondish brown hair and green-grey eyes. His hair was a little long falling over onto his forehead and sometimes into his eyes. Meredith could tell he was going to be a charmer as he got older. Whitney had dirty blonde hair and bright blue eyes.

"Come on, let's get our luggage." Meredith said as her phone started to ring. She juggled with Carson and the bag pulling it out of her purse. "Hello?" She asked trying to hear over the people.


"Richard? Hey."

"Hey. I'm waiting for you in the pick up line."

"Alright. We're about to go get out luggage."

"Alright. Bye."

"Bye." She hung up and returned it to her bag. "Richard is waiting outside."


They got their bags.

"Mama, where's grandpa?" Carson asked using his finger to twiddle his hair.

"He's outside." She said. They headed out. Meredith spotted Richard leaning against his car. "There he is." She whispered to Carson.

"Grandpa." Carson said wiggling in Meredith's arms.

"Carson." He smiled walking over taking Carson from Meredith's arms. "Hey Mer." He gave her a hug and a quick kiss on his cheek.

"Richard, you remember Maggie and her daughter Whitney."

Richard nodded. "Yep, it's great to see you guys again."

"You too, Richard."

"Come on, let's go." Meredith said excited to get to the house. They got in the car.

"Mer, I need you to come to the hospital to sign the remained of the papers."

"Can we got to the house first, so I can get my car? I'm needed at the firm." Maggie asked.

"Are you taking Whitney?" Meredith asked.


"Then, I guess we'll have to take Carson to, Richard." Meredith said looking at Richard.

"I'm always happy to spend time with Carson."
