A/N: Wow, so my FIRST STORY for Combat Hospital….wish me luck! Haven't missed an episode yet, so I'm hoping I can live up the characters standards, but also add my own little twist. Let me know what you think! :D

Disclaimer: I don't own Combat Hospital or its characters….if I did, this relationship would have blossomed even sooner….even though it did happen pretty quickly.

Darkness enveloped her. Silence filled the air she breathed. An empty room had become her home. And yet, somehow, she felt suffocated, unable to breath. She felt as if one single movement would cause her life to come crashing down around her.

Rebecca rolled over in her bunk, trying to find a comfortable position against the hardened mattress beneath her petite frame. After wrestling for several minutes, she gave up, rolling herself on to her back. She stared into the darkness, letting her thoughts consume her.

'Rebecca, what you did today was right, but the way you went about it was all wrong.' Colonel Marks' voice echoed angrily in her mind.

'I didn't know you had it in you, Gordon. Way to go! Hope he doesn't punish you too hard!' Captain Bobby Trang's deep voice played once or twice through. Him being one of her best friends, what he thought was important. She had to convince herself that there was no hidden message in what he had said. In the end, she was lucky enough to find nothing.

But then one more person's response crossed her mind. Of all people, he was the last one she thought of as she tried to fall back asleep. Lying back down, she let her eyes flutter shut as the past took over and she heard his voice clearly.

'What were you thinking, defying his orders like that? You're one hell of a woman!' His voice seemed louder than the rest. It was the one voice she couldn't release herself from. It was the voice of a man she had come to fall in love with. That sexy, accented voice belonged to none other than Doctor Simon Hill.
