chapter 2: McCoy

On a Georgian ranch a year later…

Today the second of our legends was born the one they know as one of the greatest doctors in the history of all star fleet Leonard Heratio McCoy. If many didn't know any better they'd not known he was born and raised a southern gentleman. It was cold January morning when he broke his mama's water and she with his proud daddy raced to the hospital so he could be born. "it's gonna be alright now darlin take deep breaths" George McCoy instructed

Five hours later…

It was a long period of giving birth but he finally came. Outside in the waiting room sat George worried and scared for his wife and soon to be son he puffed and paced in circles until he heard a nurse say " George McCoy your welcome to come and see your wife now congratulations your now the daddy of a son" after he heard he raced in to see her lay there and in her arms lay his new born son. Leonard had wisps of dark brown hair and gorgeous blue eyes of his mama. "George what should we name him?" she asked then the two thought of an old western legend named cactus Leo "how bout Leonard dear?" he asked his reply was a kiss "perfect! Leonard! Leonard Heratio McCoy" she chimed handing Len over to his proud father "I hope son you will grow up to become first a southern gentleman and second a proud Starfleet doctor like your mother or a scientist like me your daddy" he whispered rocking Len back and forth until McCoy fell asleep. Little did they know McCoy would also have to overcome some very painful hardships in his life as a Georgian boy though he would be tough but gentle as well…
