Chapter One - The Start Of The Beginning Of The Beginning.

It had been a typically hard day's work for Abby. She was glad that it was finally over. Now she could go home and.

Her thoughts were interrupted by a figure running into the lounge and slamming the door shut.

"Hi, Carter."

He turned round and saw that it was Abby, "Oh hi."

He took a look out of the window in the door and relaxed slightly.

"Hiding from something?"

"Someone."

"Who?"

"Susan."

"Why?"

"She's mad at me."

"Mad at you? I couldn't imagine that."

"There was a misunderstanding."

"Uh-huh." Abby tried her best to sound not in the least bit interested.

Carter took a final look out of the window and seeming happy with what he saw. He turned his full attention to Abby.

"Long day?"

It took a moment for Abby to realise what had prompted that question. She must have looked really bad. She guessed her hair was over all the place and she didn't even want to think about the rest of her. "What!" She hoped that if she acted angry he might leave the subject alone.

"Nothing." Carter had been with enough women to know what her reply actually meant.

There was a silence between the two as Abby tried to fix her hair in a way that she hoped he wouldn't know. And Carter tried not to notice this. Finally Abby gave up, "What misunderstanding?"

"Oh yeah. It was about a patient I gave her. She thought I had said he had a rash on his shoulder."

"What did you say?"

"Ass."

"Ass? You gave her a patient that had a rash on his ass?"

"Yes."

"And you call that a misunderstanding."

"Yes. She misunderstood me."

"How can you misunderstand ass for shoulder."

"Because the way I said it must have sounded like shoulder."

"How did you say it?"

"Shoulder."

"I can see how she misunderstood that for shoulder."

"Anyway she is now mad at me."

"I wonder why."

"She should thank me. It is not everyday you get to see a rash of that magnitude on that part of the body. It was a great opportunity to further her medical knowledge and therefore better prepare her for future patient care."

"In that case why didn't you take it?"

"Are you kidding? The guy had a rash on his ass."

They both laughed.

"So you off now?" Carter had noticed that Abby was preparing to leave.

"Yep. What about you?"

"Half an hour. That is unless Susan catches me." He hesitated for a moment then asked, "You want to get something to eat?"

She also hesitated, "Errr Sure."

"Okay."

Neither of them moved but just stared at each other. Finally Abby broke the silence, "I'll be at Doc Magoo's."

"Sure. But if I'm not there is half an hour, wait longer."
