Falling for You

The young doctor looked down at his old friend and patient, examining the wound on her small shoulder. Nothing serious, a small suture would solve it.

"May I?" He asked pointing to the handle of the overall.

"Of course!" She answered unbuttoning it and letting it the strap hanging by waist. "Do you want me to take my shirt off?" She added.

"W-what!" He choked with eyes wide in surprise.

"To examine me." She chuckled, shaking her head.

"It's not necessary…" He said as he turned around to take his white coat and suture instruments.

When he turned around his eyes fell on her small bare back, her overall was undone and hanging by her waist and she held her shirt against her chest. He gulped dryly and walked towards the gurney where Audrey was sitting, trying not to wonder how the hidden parts of her body looked like.

He brushed her messy hair away from her shoulder and then rolled up his sleeves bending over her to start the suture, and for the first time in years he felt nervous.

For God's sake it's just Audrey!He squeezed his eyes shut and inhaled deeply. Behind his eyelids all he saw was the girl, his mind tricked him with improper visions.

On the gurney, on his table, on the floor. His hands all over her.

"Sweet! Will you finish it or not?" Her voice snapped him back to reality, and he opened his eyes to find her grumpy face. After that, he managed to keep his thoughts under control and finish suturing her wound.

It was undeniable they had became really close and he couldn't deny the effect she sometimes had on him; he wondered if the girl felt the same way. Sweet was not the kind of guy who fell for teenagers, but Audrey was the exception, he found out.

"Done." The doctor announced as he finished bandaging her shoulder.

He froze when Audrey reclined to lean against his chest and sighed heavily. He looked down at her and met her round eyes staring up at him.

"I think… I'm falling for you…" She whispered closing her eyes.
