Crazy Patient, Jealous Nurse
Hey guys ~ sorry for the wait again…and thank you to everyone who reviewed! You make me happy. :) This is the last chapter…sorry the end was so horrible and disappointing and weird. :( I hope you'll still like it though. And please remember to review! ;D
A day had passed; Jessica Turnett was being released later that evening.
Derek groaned. He put his face in his hands, propping his elbows up on his desk. Sure, Jessica was having a great recovery. She could walk around by herself and she was already allowed to have milk products. An amazing recovery, really. And he was happy for her.
But he was still very disturbed by Angie's behaviour. She was smiling whenever he saw her, always said hi, and giggled a whole lot.
It was plain weird.
Before, she avoided Dr. Stiles. And now, it didn't matter whether they ran into each other or not.
The doctor was pulled away from his thoughts when someone knocked on his door. He looked up wearily, but blinked when he saw his blonde nurse standing in the doorway. She was smiling still, and it sent shivers down his spine.
"Er…yes, Angie?" he asked.
"Dr. Stiles, you have another surgery scheduled in ten minutes. You should be getting ready to see the patient and then get scrubbing!" she told him cheerily.
"Oh…right, thanks…Angie…" Derek replied, standing slowly.
Angie just giggled in response and waved before going back into the hallway.
Derek sighed and shook his head. Angie's new act was tiring. But he did indeed have an operation scheduled, and he went off to prepare for it.
"Ahh," Angie sighed happily, stretching. "Another successful job!"
Derek eyed her closely.
She noticed his staring. "What is it, Dr. Stiles?" When he shook his head lightly, she looked over at the clock. "Oh, Dr. Stiles!" she exclaimed, pointing to it.
"What is it, Angie?" he mumbled, not taking his eyes away from her.
"It's almost time for Miss Turnett to be discharged! You should go see her. As her doctor and her boyfriend," the nurse added with a playful wink.
Derek's eyes widened. "No, Angie –"
Angie cut him off with a giggle. "Don't worry, Dr. Stiles. I'll look after our newest patient. Go see Miss Turnett!" She nudged him out the door and towards the elevator. Without letting him get another word in, she waved at him and dashed off to the recovery room. Derek sighed and pushed the up button on the elevator.
He stepped in and leaned against the wall, staring at his reflection in the mirror. Angie thought there was something going on between Jessica and him, even though there wasn't. So she acted like a giggly, preppy girl because she was jealous?
And now she was sending him off for a mushy make-out good-bye scene?
Derek shook his head. He knew that wasn't going to happen.
The elevator dinged, and Derek started towards Jessica's room.
As he thought his situation over, he realized that the sole problem was that Jessica thought there was something between them. He had to settle things with her first.
Quietly, he entered Jessica's room. He peered around the curtain to see her sitting up on her bed, oozing cheeriness. She was already disconnected from the IV, a cotton ball taped over the spot where the big needle had been.
"Derek!" she burst out happily. Carefully, she moved her legs to the side of the bed.
"Miss Turnett, please don't hurt yourself…you don't have to get up," he told her, but she ignored him.
She walked over to him and hugged him. It wasn't as strong as her others, because, well, she wasn't as strong.
"I'm happy that I'm able to leave the hospital now, but I'm also sad that I'll have to leave you," she explained, sighing. "I'll try to visit you…and we can walk together everyday!"
Derek gulped. "Miss Turnett…"
"Call me Jessica. We're dating now, right?" she giggled.
He chewed his lip. "Er…Jessica…" He sighed. "No, we aren't dating."
She looked up at him, confused. "…What…?"
"Well…you just said you loved me and assumed I was in love with you as well…" This was making Derek really uncomfortable.
"You mean you…don't…?" Jessica's voice had turned into a whisper.
"Well…no," Derek said quietly. Even though she was crazy, he still felt bad hurting her like this.
"Oh…I see…" She unfolded her arms from his torso and moved back towards the bed slowly.
An awkward silence passed between them. Derek hated the fact that this was turning into a hospital drama.
"Is there…someone else…?" Jessica murmured quietly, moving her gaze up to meet his.
Derek flushed a little as a certain nurse instantly came to mind. He covered his mouth with his hand, embarrassed.
Jessica sighed. "Oh…I'm sorry that I caused you so much trouble, Derek…" She cocked her head to the side. "It's that nurse, right? The one you always chase after in the halls…Angie?"
Derek flushed a deeper crimson.
"…Yes," he muttered quietly.
His head was spinning. This conversation had gone in a strange direction. But he was glad it had.
He glanced at the clock. Angie's shift was ending soon…
"I'm sorry, Jessica. I hope your recovery goes well. But right now…I have to go."
Jessica nodded sadly. "…Right…bye, Derek…"
"What do you mean she already left?" Derek yelled.
"Dude! I mean, she already left!" Tyler said, holding his hands up. "Chill out, man!"
"Argh…sorry…" Derek muttered, running his fingers through his hair impatiently. He had another forty-five minutes until he was allowed to leave.
He felt someone tapping his shoulder. He looked around and saw Jessica, back in her regular clothes. Behind her was another woman that had the same eye and hair colour as her.
"This is my sister, Veronica," Jessica introduced. "And this is Dr. Stiles."
"It's nice to meet you, Dr. Stiles." Veronica stepped forward and shook his hand. "Thank you so much for putting up with my sister."
"Hey!" Jessica protested, blushing. Veronica giggled.
"Did you talk to Angie?" Jessica asked, turning her attention back to Derek. Her eyes were sad.
Derek shook his head. "She already left…but hey, I can talk to her tomorrow."
Jessica looked at him long and hard, until Veronica butted in.
"Uh, hey? Earth to Jessie!" she called, waving her hand in front of her sister's face. Jessica blinked. "Mom's car is here." She pointed out the window to a black Ford truck in the parking lot. "Bye, Dr. Stiles, and thanks again!"
Jessica looked from the truck back to Derek. After a moment, she smiled. "Thank you, Derek."
Derek smiled and nodded as his patient turned and went after her sister. He sighed.
She's a nice girl…
…but she was still a little nutty.
When Derek was finally able to go home, he took his sweet time changing and saying his good-bye's for the night. He trudged out the door, staring at the ground. Now he'd really have to wait to talk to Angie…
The doctor looked up, squinting from the glare of a streetlight. If he had remembered correctly, then his nurse lived in one of the apartment buildings around Caduceus…
Derek shrugged. It couldn't hurt to try!
Jogging, he headed towards the row of three tall buildings. It wouldn't take long to check the directories in them for Thompson…
However, he didn't get that far. As he went to enter the first building, he noticed a petite blonde figure leaning against the wall outside the middle one.
He started towards her. "Angie!" he called out.
She looked up, startled. When she noticed him, her face went bright red and she dashed into the apartment. Derek cocked an eyebrow and quickened his pace. He raced into the building after her, grabbing the door in time.
"Angie, what the fu – hey!" Derek yelled. She had run into the elevator and was pressing 'Door Close' anxiously. She let out a small 'eep' when the surgeon slipped through the doors just in time.
He pinned her to the wall. "Why are you running away?"
"I…uhm…" Angie stuttered, turning pink as she looked up at Derek. "I talked to Jessica…"
Derek felt his ears go red.
"Er…what did she say…?" he asked cautiously.
"That…you didn't love her…you loved someone else…"
Derek's heart was pounding. This was his chance…he could tell her now…she practically already knew, anyway, right?
The door dinged and opened. The two adults looked over to see a little boy standing in the doorway, wide-eyed.
Derek and Angie looked at each other, and Derek quickly stepped away, his face hot. Angie swiftly exited the elevator, patting the boy's head; she obviously knew him. Derek, however…
"Er…hey…uh…st-stay in school, kid!" he said stupidly and ran past the child after his nurse. "Angie!"
He grabbed her hand and pulled her back to him. "I, uhm…"
Angie was staring at him, her eyes wide and glistening, her face red.
"I love you, Angie…"
A moment passed, and Derek thought he had screwed it up.
He looked at Angie; her mouth was hanging open in shock.
Angie cut him off by wrapping her arms around the doctor and burying her face in his chest. Happiness and relief washed over him, and he hugged her back.
"I was so mad when I thought you and Jessica were going out…" she whispered. She giggled; a real, genuine giggle. "How stupid was I to think that?"
Derek pushed her gently against the wall and lifted her chin up. He pressed his lips to hers, moving one hand around her waist. She lifted her arms up and ran her fingers through his soft, brown hair, enjoying the moment she had been wanting for a long time.
"I…love you, too, Derek…" she murmured softly when they parted.
Derek observed Angie's apartment as he waited for her to make tea. She had a nice place. She had a big TV in a fancy wall set with DVDs in cabinets on either side. She had a black fabric sofa with a glass coffee table in front. Plus, she had an amazing view, and a really big window. But that was only the living room, of course.
Angie walked out with two cups of tea on a tray. She set them down on the table and plopped down on the couch beside Derek.
He looked at her. "Hmm?"
"I'm sorry…I was such a bi – "
The doctor leaned over and pushed Angie down, crawling on top of her. Resting his forehead on hers, he said, "You don't have to be sorry." He kissed her again, his lips moving from her lips down to her neck.
…He, uh, ended up staying the night at her place…
When the two arrived at work together the next day, they couldn't stop staring at each other and grinning involuntarily. They were wrapped up in a world of their own.
Dr. Stiles looked up to see Tyler and Leslie.
"Derek, man! What's wrong with you?" he asked, eyebrow cocked. "You weren't even home last night. I tried to call you like three times and you didn't pick up."
Angie and Derek simultaneously went red. "Guh…"
Derek coughed, embarrassed to no end.
"I…uhm…stayed at Angie's last night," he muttered, looking away from Tyler.
Tyler's eyes widened and his face broke into a grin. Then he started laughing.
"Wh-what?" Angie asked, more blood pooling at her cheeks.
"Well, it's about time! Leslie and I were talking about making a bet on how long it would take for you two to get together!"
Leslie was smiling, too. "It's a good thing we didn't, or Tyler would owe me so much money…"
Dr. Chase leaned forward and whispered something to his nurse.
"Victor'll kill you, Tyler…" she warned him.
He shrugged and ran off anyway. Knowing Tyler, Derek immediately dashed off after him. But he was too late.
Dr. Chase had run into the cafeteria, where all the staff at Caduceus was eating. He stood on a table and threw his hands out dramatically. Everybody stopped and watched him.
"Just letting everyone know that Dr. Stiles and Nurse Thompson are now officially together!"
Everyone turned their attention to Derek, as well as Angie and Leslie. Angie slapped her forehead as they all burst into cheers.
Derek gave in and shrugged. He grabbed Angie and they locked in another passionate kiss, making their crowd go even wilder.
