Introduction

Image

Once a med-student interning at Vancouver General Hospital, a hospital well-known for its research department, a young doctor comes across an old patient of his from a few years ago. She's a young teenager, now only seventeen, and has been in and out of the hospital since the age of three due to her immune system not working well enough to continuously keep her healthy.

She's been asked by the head of the research department to take part in a study, an experimental medication that requires she return to the hospital for an examination at least once daily. During this study, she's been assigned to a new doctor, recently graduated at twenty-four years old; the intern she had met years ago while he was still just a high school student. She'd had a crush on him then, even when he became an intern, and it hits her full-force as she tries to hide this and retain the professional doctor-patient relationship they're supposed to have. Unfortunately, she can't help but yearn for more than just this.

The doctor has a lingering attachment for the girl he saved years ago when he'd been late to an early morning soccer game during his high school years. He's been shocked when he had become her intern and, years later, was shocked again when he was told he was to be her new doctor. She is his first real patient without another, older and more experienced, doctor watching his every move behind him. Perhaps, even, his first real love?

It was a sunny day out but it was too bad she couldn't spend any of her time outside, drinking in the warm rays while laying on a towel in the yard or something. Addison gave a sigh as she thought this, her aqua eyes annoyed with her condition. She had been coming into the hospital on a daily basis for regular check ups, especially since she started the new medication research study she had agreed to become a part of, but now they wanted to change her doctor.

She understood that Doctor Doyle was old and all but did he really have to retire? The teen had grown fond of him in the years she had known him and he'd been someone she could always confide in but, now, even that seemed to be leaving her.

Addy shook out her long blonde curls and pushed them over her shoulders to cascade down her back, her curled bangs falling into her eyes slightly as she did so. She blew out a breath of air in frustration, tapping her foot on the ground as she shifted on the hard plastic chair. She was waiting for someone to call her and she hoped it would be soon, after all.. They were running 15 minutes late as it was and Addison wasn't exactly too bothered by this as she pulled her Blackberry Bold from her jacket pocket and checked for messages.

" Addison King?" A nearby voice asked, practically in front of her, and the teen looked up as she replaced her cellphone into her pocket. Addy gave a nod, " Yes, that's me." The nurse, as it turned out, beckoned for the younger girl to follow and lead her to her usual hospital room. Her parents were closely linked to the hospital and had arranged for this one room to pretty much be Addison's whenever she came by. This is where she usually had her check ups done.

" The doctor will be with you shortly, he's just finishing with another patient." The nurse said as she slid the door open and then left Addison to her own devices, quite literally too.

The blonde heaved a sigh as she stepped into the room and sat on the comfortable white chair, taking off her shoes before curling her feet under herself and pulling out her phone to play a game while she waited. She hoped it wouldn't be much longer.

Stepping into the office, his face buried in his patient files, Nathanael walked into the room. Setting the folder down, he looked up at Addison. "Addison... King. Hmm, that name seems fami-" he cut himself off mid-sentence almost dropping his coffee. Addison King was in his office. The little girl he had met years ago through a twist of her bad luck, was sitting in his office. The small, blonde girl he had almost completely forgotten about, who had no doubt forgotten the intern who just started there a few days before. "Addison King? Little Addison from all those years ago? Well what brings you back here? Hopefully not something like the last time we saw each other."

Addison was so startled to hear the sound of a voice, his voice in particular, and dropped her mobile to clatter to the floor. She bent to pick it up quickly before sitting straight in her chair and looking over at her new doctor, her pale blue eyes staring in shock at who she saw.

It was that intern, that guy who'd helped her out when she was younger and had been really sick. She realized she still hadn't responded to him and did so, " Yeah, that's me." She smiled at the man, hating that she'd ever had a crush on this guy and that he had to be good-looking. It just wasn't fair. " But I don't exactly recall your name?" Her eyes were apologetic as she waited a few moments to hear his response, if her had one, before deciding to answer his question on why she was currently in the room in front of him today.

" I'm part of the new study they started up a few weeks ago," Addy started, taking her time with her explanation, " The medication they made is designed to help the immune system to identify pathogens and destroy them before they harm the body, which wasn't happening before like that time you helped me. So, in short, we hope for the medication to make my immune system more like yours or any other person." She spoke in a plural as though more than one person were with her other than herself but, other than herself, she meant her parents and her little sister who hadn't come on this visit.

" Is that what you were looking for?" Addison asked lightly, pushing her phone into her pocket before clasping her hands together on her lap.

Nathanael laughed. "It's all right. I honestly wouldn't expect you to. I just kind of sat back and watched the real doctors last time we saw each other. It's Nathanael Hollis. But feel free to call me Nathan. Or Nate. Or Doc, really, I'm pretty partial to those over Nathanael." He smiled at her, pulling up a chair and sitting in it. He had to admit, she looked really good. Medically and physically. He slid the folder across the counter and opened it up, listening to Addison's response on why she was here. "That's just about word for word as the folder. You didn't sneak a peek while I wasn't looking hmm?" He said jokingly.

Addison laughed softly at this, trying not to feel weird that her doctor wasn't much older than herself and had given permission to call him by a nickname. " Alright then," she hesitated but continued, " Doctor Hollis...?" It felt odd but she was supposed to be respectful, right? Unfortunately....

Shaking her head caused her curls to bounce against her back, " No," she replied as her lips turned up into a smile to show that she was, in fact, amused. " I don't need to look at the file, it's all in here." Addy released on hand to tap her temple lightly with her finger before bringing it back to her lap.

He smiled at her again. "Well then Miss King, if you've got all that info down, there's no doubt you know what we're going to have to do right?" He asked, rolling up his sleeves. "Blood samples, virus spots, the usual. I'll make it as painless as I can all right?"

" Uh huh," the seventeen year old muttered, her eyes bored already even though the tests hadn't started. " Oh, and you know I have to come in everyday, right?" Addison asked quietly, her eyes gauging Nathanael's reaction. Would he be surprised, annoyed, or just be friendly and say he looked forward to it like Doctor Doyle had done. The sweet, sweet old man.

She was glad she'd worn a halter top, mainly for the sun but also if he was drawing blood. She hated pulling up her sleeves or taking off a heavy sweater but, of course, never complained about it. Addy pulled her arms out of her black jacket and stuffed it behind her on the chair, " You'd think I knew it was coming or something," she added in a slightly louder tone.

" So, let's get this done and over with." She was happy that taking blood was only a once or twice a week occurrence... Addison hated needles with a passion not that anyone knew that.

"Every day hmm? Well I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the thought of catching up with you." He said with a smile, spinning around to get the syringe. "I just wish it was under more fortunate circumstances." Turning back around, he smiled again. "After all this time I'd hope you know it was coming. If it surprised you, things might not be exactly right." He joked.

Addison nodded, hiding a smile. Seeing him everyday definitely wouldn't bother her, she just hoped the fact that her small crush she'd had hadn't been easily detected when she was younger. She could feel it resurfacing and practically hitting her dead in the face as though to say I'm still here!

" So do I," she responded, keeping her tone light as she kept an eye on her breathing. One part about being sick and constantly in and out of hospitals; it absolutely sucked to hate needles especially since you tended to get quite a few. Pale eyes pointedly avoided looking at the needle as she studied Nathanael's face.

She could tell he was taller than her, it'd be odd if her wasn't, and looked pretty healthy. As befitted a doctor. He had grey eyes that tended to smile when his lips did, showing he was a relatively good natured man. Addison ignored the slight pinch as the needle went in and exhaled the breath she hadn't realized she had been holding, keeping her eyes calm and her body relaxed. She'd learned long ago that it hurt more when you were tense.

" So," the blonde began, honestly curious now. " you became a doctor. Was that before or after you helped me?" This was partly a joke, " Do you like it?" Yup, this was definitely Addison trying to keep her attention off the needle. Classic. She felt like hitting herself in the forehead, that's how stupid she felt.

Nathanael withdrew the needle from her arm slowly. "It was a little bit after. Those kinds of things tend to an effect on people's lives you know?" He said with a grin. Once the syringe was completely out, he turned and faced her. "There we go, that's all done. Not too bad I hope." He took the vial from the needle and placed it in a small case labeled 'King, Addison T'. "So what about you? God knows it's been almost seven years since we've crossed paths hasn't it?"

The teenager nodded her head slowly, doing the math out in her head. He was right, Addison had been ten at the time she had met him.

" Yeah," the blonde answered, " Seven years, that's a long time.." Her aqua eyes were thoughtful as she considered what to tell the doctor, pulling her arm back toward her petite body. " But you haven't missed much. Hospital visits, boy drama, graduation.." She listed them off easily, shrugging as she did so. " Honestly, that's nothing," Addison smiled at Nathanael before adding, " Anyway, enough about me. You're a doctor now, eh, Nate. How do you like it?" Her words were smooth, no hesitation this time as she slipped into using the nickname he had said she could.

He turned away from the case and back to Addison. "Too long if you ask me. Why can't all my patients be this nice huh?" He smiled at her. "Anyway, enough about me. You're a doctor now, eh, Nate. How do you like it?" "Well it pays the bills you know? It's been kind of a drag though. Wanna help me liven it up a bit?"

" It's my pleasure," Addy responded, bowing her head as she held in a laugh. " I do what I can to make things easier." She shifted in her seat, hiding her confusion as she looked over at the doctor. " Well, of course it does. And what do you mean?"

"All these tests and such take a while to process and they don't need me here for it. I'm sure you've noticed that by now right?" He asked, washing his hands quickly. "So what do you say we go get some lunch at the deli across the street huh? My treat."

Addison nodded, " That's true.. They definitely do. And sure, why not?" The blonde watched Nate as he rinsed his hands, having always found doctors to be somewhat interesting to watch. Sadly, this one in particular had caught her attention. Second time's a charm? She didn't want to go for 'third', three seemed to be her unlucky number lately.

She stood slowly, stretching her long legs as she felt for her cellphone in her pocket. Her over-size white bag, which acted as a school bag for her, sat leaning against the chair leg on the floor. Her meds were inside.. Addison had to take two pills twice daily of one type and another at lunch time. Every. Single. Day.

It truly was a hassle but she figured it was worth it. And, even though Nate was her doctor, she always felt weird taking pills in front of people. She'd most likely walk into the bathroom after eating or, even better in her eyes, just wait until she got home to take that particular little blue capsule. After all, it didn't seem to hurt her.

While she'd had these thoughts racing through her mind, Addy had had a smile don her lips and had bent to pick up the bag to swing it over her shoulder. " Do you want me to wait outside?" After she'd entered this new program she noticed they worked differently than the hospital itself did, as odd as that sounded.
