Ring ring! Ring ring! Ring ring!
"Ugh!" I groaned. If it had been any other phone at two in the morning, I would have ignored it. But of course it had to be my work phone, the one the hospital gave me in case of an emergency. I knew I had to answer it. One, because it was my job and two because if I didn't the shrill ring would wake my fiancée who was already stirring.
"Hello?" I asked groggily as I picked up the phone and flipped it open.
"Hello Edward. It's Doctor Newton. I'm sorry to bother you at two in the morning and I know tomorrow, or I suppose today, is your day off, but I need you to come in at seven. Dr. Crowley has come down with the flu and we have no one else to call. Dr. Black, Dr. Webber, and Dr. Shaney aren't going to be back from their vacations until Saturday."
I sighed. "Mmmkay."Yawn. "From seven till when?"
"Till eleven tomorrow evening."
"Dr. Newton, I understand I will have to come in, but is there any way I can get home earlier. Its me and my fiancée's anniversary and I promised her I would be home."
"I'm sorry, but I swore to Paul that he could have the day off as long as he came in by eleven. However, you are getting the weekend off so I need to see you at seven."
"Fine." I snapped as I slammed the phone down. As I laid my head back down and let out a deep breath, Bella rolled over throwing her arm across my stomach and snuggled into my side. I sighed and used my right hand to stroke the length of her arm that she had suspended across my abdomen as I pulled her long, silky, brown hair through my fingers on my other hand. As I looked down at her, I wonder as I still often did, what I had done to deserve her. To be allowed to see the little grin that formed on her face when she slept or to have her beautiful body snuggled up against mine every night. I was clueless.
Bella was smart, beautiful, funny and sweet as an angel. She worked with children as an O.T. at the clinic next door to the children's hospital where I worked. She always came to the hospital on her days off to play with the children. I was the head cardiologist there and that was how we met.
"There you go Brandon." I said as I squeezed the last of his medicine into his I.V..
"Knock knock!" said a trilling voice. I turned to see the most beautiful woman I had ever seen standing in the door way. It was Bella. O f course I knew who she was. I had had a crush on her since the first day I saw her. Even seeing her now, dressed in skinny jeans, flip-flops, and a blue hospital t-shirt caused my pants to get tighter.
I smiled at her. "Hi Bella." Bella was the average height of 5 foot, 4 inches, with long brown hair and big brown eyes.
"Hi Dr. Cullen."
"Okay Brandon, Is it okay if Ms. Bella, it is Ms. Right?" I asked looking at her quickly. She giggled and nodded. I turned back to Brandon. "I it okay if Ms. Bella stays and plays with you until I come back?"
He nodded and I walk over to Bella's side. "Since it's six thirty and he normally falls asleep around seven, if he falls asleep before I come back, if you could just stand right there in the doorway. I'll be right across the hall, so I'll see you and come get him ready for bed."
I winked at her and saw her blush out of the corner of my eye as I walked out the door. All I could do was smile.
End of Flashback
I hoped that she was still asleep, but some dreams never come true.
":What was that all about?" I asked wondering why the hospital was calling him at two in the morning.
"The hospital needs me from seven till eleven tomorrow."
I sat up looking at him through eyes that I was sure already had tears in them. "What?!" I shouted. "Edward. Tomorrow is our anniversary. How are we supposed to have one if your busy working all day? You promised you were going to be home! The dinner reservations have already been made and what about the fireworks and the walk through the park? We've done that every year since we met. You swore you were going to be home for that, for us, for me. You promised me."
He pulled me into a hug as I sobbed into his throat. "I know I promised but one of the doctors got sick
"I don't care! You're never home! This was supposed to be our day, our night." I cried looking into his now tear filled eyes. I knew he hated to see me upset and I knew it was his job, but it just wasn't fair.
" I know and I'm sorry baby. You know I love you and I can't help that I have to work. Believe me, I would so much rather be here and if could be, I would be. But listen." he put both hands on either side of my face. "I am going to make it up to you. They are giving me the weekend off. So, I'm going to take you away this weekend, from Friday till Sunday evening. Just you and me. You can pack for us while I'm at work tomorrow. Okay?"
Sigh. "Mmmkay." That did sound like a good idea and a three day anniversary sounded even better than one night. "Where are we going? I need to know if I'm going to pack."
"My parents E-mailed me not to long ago. They just bought a beach house. It's brand new, waterfront, three stories. It's really nice they say."
"Cool." I said as I leaned in for a goodnight, or I suppose a good morning kiss. He returned it, kissing me sweetly, and then started stroking me hair and my arm again as I laid back down against his side.
"Goodnight Bella. I love you." he murmured
"I love you too." I mumbled as I drifted off to sleep. This was going to be a great weekend.
