A/N: So…this story came to me when one of my friends was talking about ferrets, because I know that Callie had one for a long time when she was younger. Anyways, I am going to try this out and see if it works. Let me know what you guys think by reviewing! :)
Everyone was crowded around the lockers trying to find a suitable space that would work to fit their essentials as they traveled along the path toward surgical greatness. Callie Torres was among one of the lucky people to be accepted into Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital's surgical internship program. Everyone in Seattle had big hopes for Callie. She was top of her class in medical school, and she was excellent with different types of medicine, Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital was lucky to have a new intern like Callie Torres.
"Oh dude this shit is gonna be awesome. You ready to kick some surgical ass Cal?" Callie's best friend from medical school, Jules, said as she took a seat next to her friend.
"You bet, just as long as I get the good resident."
"Just as long as WE get the good resident, if we're not in the same group man I'm gonna have to make new friends and you know how bad I am at that." Callie smiled, she was so thankful that Jules was there to help her get through her internship.
"Yes Jules I know you're terrible at making friends."
After a few more minutes of chaos a short African-American resident came through the doors of the locker room and started calling out names of interns who were assigned to certain residents. Callie silently prayed that she wasn't separated from Jules, because if she was it would be very hard to feel comfortable in a group of new people. After a while it was looking like there were only five people left in the locker room so Callie assumed that they would all be with the last resident. She had hoped she wasn't with Bailey, Callie had heard that Dr. Bailey was the toughest resident by far.
"Adams, Grey, Karev, Torres, Yang," the short African- American resident said after everyone had left the locker room. She waited until they all stood around her before introducing herself. "I have five rules, memorize them." She walked out the door and they all followed obediently. "Rule number one: don't bother sucking up I already hate you that's not gonna change. Trauma protocol, phone lists, pagers, nurses will page you, you answer every page at a run, a run that's rule number two. You're first shift starts now and lasts forty-eight hours. You're interns, grunts, nobodies, bottom of the surgical food chain, you run labs, write orders, work every second night until you drop and don't complain. On call rooms attendings hog them sleep when you can where you can which brings me to rule number three, If I'm sleeping don't wake me unless your patient is actually dying. Rule number four: the dying patient better not be dead when I get there because, not only would you have killed someone but you would've woken me for no good reason we clear?" Callie was totally overwhelmed by all this information that was passing through her head when she saw Grey raised her hand. "Yes?"
"You said five rules that was only four."
"Rule number five when I move you move." And then she was off with only a quick glance at her beeping pager to know where she was going. Callie ran after her with Jules and Yang on her flanks.
"Holy shit man that was intense." Jules said once they had stopped running.
"You know she's called the Nazi right?" Grey said.
"I thought the Nazi was a man." Karev said.
"Me too," Yang concurred.
"Nazi's can be woman I guess." Callie said.
"I guess so, I'm Meredith by the way."
"Callie, and this is my friend Jules." Jules waved, she was already focus on something else, or someone else for that matter.
"Jules, what are you looking at?" Callie asked, she only pointed at the man standing by the nurse's station.
"We are going to have a lot of fun here huh Cal?" Jules said while smirking.
"Who that guy?" Karev asked Jules who only nodded.
"He could be old enough to be your father." Karev said.
"Shut up Karev," Jules whispered as he walked by.
"Fighting already, good luck with these interns eh Bailey?" he said to their resident. Everyone froze hoping she didn't kill them or something, nobody had any clue what the Nazi was capable of.
"Thank you Dr. Sloan, but I think I can handle these scraggly bunch of miscreants." He walked away but winked at Jules before turning his back. Bailey caught onto that and glared at her intern.
"You, will not get involved with that, do you understand?" she said very sternly.
"Yes ma'am," Jules said quickly.
"Scaring your interns already Miranda, give them a little break it's their first day." A very beautiful resident said as she walked over to Bailey.
"We didn't get any breaks, why should they?" Bailey said.
"If you wish to torture them then that's your issue, I have my own scraggly bunch of miscreants to attend to anyways." She smiled and turned to her interns. "Interns, this is Dr. Bailey a very dear friend of mine and fellow resident. You will treat her with respect and anything she says goes no matter what it is got it?" All of the other interns nodded at their resident.
"Same goes for all of you with Dr. Robbins right?" Bailey's interns nodded and Callie smiled. She couldn't help to notice how beautiful she thought Dr. Robbins was. Callie couldn't help but laugh a little when she saw Dr. Robbins roll away on her wheeled shoes. Bailey rolled her eyes.
"Dr. Bailey?" Callie asked.
"Why does Dr. Robbins wear wheeled shoes?"
"Why don't you ask her?" Bailey said aggressively.
"Sorry," Callie said.
They were twenty-four hours into their first shift as interns and Callie was already exhausted. She had no idea how she was going to be able to withstand this much work for the next seven years. She felt disgusting in her dirty scrubs, but had no time to get new ones or even shower. She was being paged every five minutes by Bailey, and if she missed a page she'd be dead so she had to endure being dirty and disgusting for the next twenty-four hours.
Callie, Jules, Meredith, Cristina, and Alex had all become pretty close at that point. They had been together for what seemed like forever, and knew that the only way that they were going to survive a year with Bailey would be to stick together. They were all in the ER trying to help some car accident patients when Callie went to the next curtain to discover Dr. Robbins holding her shoulder in an oddly weird position.
"Uh, Hi." Callie said.
"Can you page someone in ortho to put this back for me?" Dr. Robbins asked.
"I can do it,"
"You've been a doctor for a day so excuse me for wanting someone with a little more experience to pop my shoulder back in."
"I've been popping shoulders back in since I was seven. I can do this." Callie said sternly. Dr. Robbins rolled her eyes.
"If you fuck up my shoulder I'll have you thrown out of this program faster than you can say surgery."
"I won't I promise." Callie went for the drawer where the morphine was but the blonde doctor shook her head.
"No drugs, I need to operate in an hour."
"Are you sure, this is going to hurt and I don't think you will be operating for a few days."
"Just do it," Callie took her hands and put them right on the place where she needed to push the bone back in.
"On the count of three okay?" the blonde nodded. "So why do you wear wheeled shoes Dr. Robbins?" Callie asked.
"Because they are fun and the kids love them… MOTHER FUCKER!" Callie had popped the blondes shoulder back in mid-sentence. "I thought you said count of three!" the blonde screamed.
"It hurts less when you don't know it's coming." Callie said as she wrapped the arm up in a sling.
"I guess that makes sense." The blonde said as she hopped off the table and grabbed her lab coat. "Thank you for this, you did a good job for not being in ortho."
"I've had a lot of experience with shoulders and knees."
"I see, maybe ortho is a good specialty for you Dr….?" Arizona had no idea what the interns name was.
"Torres, Calliope Torres."
"Right, well thank you Calliope Torres."
"I'll see you around then?" Callie nodded and watched the hot doctor skate away with her sling and lab coat halfway on.
Callie couldn't help but think about the blonde doctor for a long time. She was stuck in the interns mind like superglue. Callie was really happy that this resident was noticing her talent, but Callie couldn't help but notice that the resident was noticing more than her orthopedic talent. Callie had no idea what was to come for the next day, but she was very satisfied with how her first shift as a surgical intern at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital went.
