Beep… Beep… Beep…
"Ugh!" I rolled over and shut my alarm off. Today was my first day of residency at Mercy Hospital. I just moved from my dorm at Harvard to a high end condo in NYC. I majored in pediatric medicine and I just got a job as a pediatric internist.
You see, most people think my job is all fun… especially with kids. It took me a lot of work to get where I am now. I grew up in a small town called Forks, Washington with my parents, Charlie and Renee. My dad is a lawyer and my mom is a doctor. They taught me at a young age to do well in school. My friends, or at least the ones I had, always asked me if I thought they were being too hard on me. I think they were, but if they didn't, then I would not be where I am today.
My best friend Alice owns a boutique in the high end part of the city. She majored in fashion design and marketing in Harvard also. We were roommates. She lives in the building next to me in a penthouse her parents got her as a birthday present.
She is actually the one who has transformed my look. In high school, I used to be plain old Bella with plain brown hair and dull brown eyes. I basically had a stick figure with absolutely no curves. I stood at about five feet. Now, at 22 years old, my hair actually has volume with layers that go down in waves to the middle of my back. I gained about four inches, but I really am not all that tall. I gained some curves after joining the college basketball team and have a fit body.
I pale in comparison to Alice, but I am getting there.
I walked into the shower and washed my hair with my favorite strawberry shampoo. I used my body wash that smelled like freesias and finally got out of the shower. Alice had picked my outfit out for today because she herself said, "You have to look good on your first day and make a good impression."
She picked a knee length black skirt that hugged my curves perfectly. I wore a red blouse with a v-neck that showed an ample amount of cleavage, but appropriate for the hospital. I didn't need a blazer because I would be wearing my lab coat on top of my outfit. She also picked out a pair of black high heels. I usually opted against them, but Alice would kill me if she saw me without them on.
I blow dried my hair and made soft curls in it with my curling iron. I also picked out the red glossy lip gloss that Alice gave me from her mother's makeup line. It did wonders. I also put some light mascara on and smoky eye shadow. I opted against blush because Alice said I had enough of that naturally.
I looked at myself in the mirror, and I was amazed that I had actually done this by myself; Alice would have been so proud. I actually looked somewhat pretty. I went downstairs and had a granola bar with yogurt while I read the paper. I was still pretty early so I put my wallet and other items in my new coach purse.
I walked downstairs and said hi to the receptionist, Ellie. She was really nice and I have known her for a few months since I moved in. I walked into the garage and got into my midnight blue Lexus hybrid; a birthday present from my parents.
As I drove to the hospital, I couldn't help but be nervous. But I had come so far for this. I wasn't going to freak out. Breathe Bella, breathe. I pulled up into a parking space next to a silver Volvo. Nice car.
I walked into the hospital and saw a receptionist at the front desk. Her nametag read Jessica.
"Hi Jessica, I am Bella Swan, a new doctor here," she looked up from the book she was reading. "I was wondering f you could direct me to Mr. Cheney's office, the administrator."
"Oh, yeah, go down the hallway and make a right," she said in a dull voice.
"Thanks," I smiled.
I walked down the hallway and couldn't help but notice how fancy this place was compared to an average hospital. The walls were beige and the floor was laminated wood. Simply beautiful, I thought.
I entered into a gorgeous office and saw Mr. Cheney at his desk.
"Excuse me, Mr. Cheney," I said. "I am Isabella Swan, your new pediatric internist."
"Ah, Dr. Swan, pleasure to meet you," he said. "please, take a seat."
"Thank you." I said.
"So, I hear that you are one of Harvard's top graduates." Mr. Cheney complimented.
"I guess you can say that," I replied modestly.
"Well, we are very lucky to have you here, Dr. Swan," he said. "Here is your lab coat and stethoscope… I am guessing that is all you will need today. Each doctor has their own computer in their assigned room where they can write charts and do dictations. You will be assigned with Dr. Weber, Dr. Whitlock, and Dr. Cullen."
"Okay, which room is that going to be at?"
"That is room 101 on the main floor, where the pediatric wing is. There are also some rooms on the second floor that you may have to go."
"Thank you so much, Mr. Cheney." I said.
"You're welcome. If you want to get your lab coat on and come with me I will show you your wing and have one of the doctors show you around today." he said.
I followed Mr. Cheney out into the beautiful hallways.
As we were walking, he said, "Since it is morning, most of the doctors in pediatrics will be in this area, so I can introduce you to most of them. Here we are."
I was led into an area with nurses' desks that looked similar to the receptionist desk and many doctors writing things onto their charts. This place was also very well furnished.
"May I have your attention please," Mr. Cheney said. Everyone turned and looked at Mr. Cheney, and then their eyes darted to me. I was trying not to blush because I hate when the attention is on me.
"This is Dr. Swan. She is a pediatric internist and will be working with us from now on." Mr. Cheney said. "Now, Dr. Swan, if you will please tell us a little about yourself." I felt like I was in grade school and I was talking to a new class or something. But rather, I was a 22-year old woman that was introducing herself to her fellow colleagues. How embarrassing.
"Okay," I smiled. My mom always told me to look confident and smile while talking to new people. 'But don't act conceited' she always said. "Well, I grew up in Forks, Washington and I am 22 years old. I am a Harvard graduate and am doing residency for pediatric internship here at Mercy, and oh," I decided to add some humor at the end, "my favorite color is blue." Everyone laughed along with me.
The people here were so friendly. "Well, I trust all of you to introduce yourself to Dr. Swan, I have business to take care of," Mr. Cheney said. "Sorry about that."
"Oh, its no problem." I smiled.
A tall woman with brown hair and dark blue eyes walked up to me and said, "Hi, I am Angela Weber. It's nice to meet you."
"It's nice to meet you too." I shook her hand.
"So you are doing pediatric internship?" she asked, "That's pretty tough," she said with a genuine smile.
"Yeah, but it's something I have always wanted to do. My mom was a pediatric radiologist." I admitted.
"I am doing that too. I love it, it's just that I don't get to see the kids a lot." She said.
"Yeah, my mom said the same thing." I said with a smile. Just then a tall man with blond hair and light blue eyes walked up to me.
"Hey, I am Jasper Whitlock. Pleased to meet you," he said. Realization hit me. This was Alice's boyfriend. She kept on telling me about how gorgeous he was and where he worked.
"Hi, are you by any chance Alice Brandon's boyfriend?" I said.
"Yeah…" he trailed off looking kind of creeped out.
"Don't worry, I am not stalking you. She is my best friend." I said with a laugh.
"What a small world," he stated with a grin.
"So what's your specialty?" I asked.
"Pediatric surgery." he said.
"Wow, that's something," I said. A few more doctors and nurses came out and talked to me for a while. I even heard some male doctors say things like "She's hot" and "I bet I can go out with her by Friday" It was a major distraction. I came here to do my work, not fish for men.
Just then, I saw the most gorgeous man I have ever seen. He had auburn hair that almost looked bronze with the most angelic face I have ever seen. What made my breath hitch was his beautiful green eyes that looked like emeralds. He was tall; and he was muscular and lean. Absolutely perfect.
I saw him walk up to me to introduce himself. Here goes nothing.
