Melinda's POV:

School was really fun today. Jim stated While getting ready for work. It was, I walked over to the couch and sat down next to him. When do you have to leave, I ask resting my head on my hands. Five minutes. O (I don't like to stay home alone.) Why do you have to work a double today? I thought it was Wednesdays? It was, but tonight T.J. asked me to cover for him. Family reunion. By the was its only a fore hour shift. I'll be home around 2. (I frowned, I didn't want him to leave.) What did your dad want earlier? (I was trying to change the subject?) Nothing really, he was just giving me some test results on a patents Bobby and I brought in last week. Remember the 5 year old that was in that lawn mowing accident? O Yes,… why? The blood type on the kids medical files wasn't the same as the type he was tested for. So dad was thinking it was some how switched by the hospital… He stopped fiddling with the condense in his med bag and looked up at me. Sorry. I just shook my head, I hated hospitals… and as Jim says I have a good reason why. Well… I have to go he says looking at his watch. Love you, he walked over and kissed me, I cupped his face then slowly pulled away. Love you more. He chuckled, that's not possible. Do you want me to wake you up when get home? Yes, I like to know when your home. Alright. Be careful. I will, promises. He blows me a kiss as he grabs his Med Bag and walks out the door, locking it behind. I sit there for a moment, then decide to watch a movie. After some consideration I grabbed Gone With The Wind. Jim would never watch it with me because it was to sad and he thought it would buses his "ego." So I retrieved my cell phone, laptop, a bottle water and made my way upstairs.

Jim's POV:

Bobby, Mathew, Kelly, Derik and I were all playing a game of poker. Roil Flush Kelly showed. Everyone groaned, throwing there cards down. Dude that's the third time tonight, Bobby Proclaimed! Someone's luck tonight. No kidding, that was this weeks pay, Mat replied! Double or nothing? Kelly asked, while getting an evil eye from Mat. Sorry, count me out, I laugh I've already lost more then needed. At least you won a round, Derik spoke. That's when the alarm sounded.
ALL UNITS, ALL UNITS. THIS IS DISPATCH REPORTING A FIRE AT LIVINGSTION COUNTY LIBRARY, ADDRESS 450 LOCUS ST. CHILLICOTHE MO. 64601. REPEAT A CODE 5, 450 LOCUS ST. It took about 30 seconds to get dressed. Bobby's Driving truck b-1, Kelly truck b-2, Mat back with Bobby, Derik with Kelly Bobby I'm in back, I called. Got it Clancy! They were all in place in seconds. Lets go!
It took us less then a minute to get there because the library is only fore blocks away form the Fire Station but when we arrived at the flames were about thirdly foot high. Myself being the head Firefighter on the seen turned on the ladder, grabbed a hose and started elevating up. There was no one in the building the cops told us so our fist priority was putting out the fire and saving the surrounding buildings. We were working on the fire for about 30 minuets when my foot slipped. I reached for something, anything but just found air. Then every thing went black…

Melinda's POV:

I was asleep peacefully when I heard the phone ring. I looked at the clock on the other side of the bed. Where's Jim? I wondered I figured it was him checking in saying he would be a little late, but when I picked up the phone. This isn't his number. Who would be calling me at two in the morning? Hello? I mumbled sleepily. Hello, Melinda Clancy? A female asked. Yes. Mrs. Clancy my name is Dr. Miranda Chase, from Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe. We have your husband here. He was admitted at 1:27 this morning.
Jim!? I sat up dead straight in bed. Yes ma'am Dr. Chase, said softly. Is he alright?! My eyes filling with tears. Ma'am I'm not allowed to give information out about our patents over the phone. Tears started to stream down my face. Can you come in? Yes, I'll be there right away. I hang up the phone and jump out of bed. I don't care what I'm wearing, I run down stars grab my purse and car keys and ran out the door.
