"Miss. Swan you are needed in room 104, the Masens. Dr. Cullen needs some assistance." Said the nurse next to me. I was so nervous, today I offical started as a nurse helping at the hospital taking care of people. I have been here for a couple months now but Dr. Cullen said that today I would start being a nurse. I quickly looked over to the nurse next to me, nodded, and grabbed the clipboard from her and left to the room. I knocked on the door and walked in. When I stepped inside I first say a woman asleep, she had a bronze-ish color hair and was pale, I could tell she was very sick. Next to her was a boy that looked to be about my age, he had close to the same color hair and wasn't to pale.
I walked over to Dr. Cullen with my clipboard in hand. "Ah, Bella, good your here." He spoke quietly so he wouldn't wake them. "These are the Masens, Elizbeth and Edward. Their going to be your main focus for now. All you need to do is to watch and take care of them." He stood up from his chair and walked over to the door. "The papers are onthe table. I'll be checking in once and a while. If theres an emerceny just find the closest nurse or doctor and they will find me." And with that he gave me a quick smile and left. I was still in shock from what was going on.
I turned around and walked towards the tableand picked up the papers and placed them on my clipboard. I walked over to my pations and noticed they were still asleep. I fist walked over to the woman and felt her face for her temperture, she felt normal. Next I walked over to the boy and was shocked. He was beautiful, his bronze hair stuck up everywhere, he had perfect facial features, but he was only a little pale. I placed my hand on his forehead and felt he was a little warm. I walked back to the table and placed my clipboard down. Then went back to the boy and got a wash rag.
I gently placed the wash rag on spots of his face to cool him down. Suddnly his eyes fluttered open. Beautiful green eyes were staying up at me, I gasped and pulled the rag away from his face. He looked at me for a second then around the room. His eyes landed on me again, he seemed to be thinking. "Who are you? And where is Dr. Cullen?" His voice sounded a little horse so I handed him a glass of water that was on the counter next to his bed. He took a sip then sat it back on the counter. "Thank you." His voice sounded like velvet.
It took me a second to remember that he asked me a question. "My name is Isabella Swan, I liked to be called Bella though. Dr. Cullen has left me to look after you and your mother, he is needed in more rooms now also." I walked to the bucket and placed the rag in then walked back over. "How are you feeling?" I asked with a light smile.
"Alright, thank you for cooling me down." He sounded like a complete gentleman. He placed his arms on both of his sides and tried to push himself up.
I quickly went next to him and helped him. He seated himself with his back on his pillow, he gave me a smile when I pulled away. I walked over to his mother again and checked her temperture, once again she felt fine. I went over to my clipboard and wrote down when Edward woke up and how his and his mothers tempertures were doing. I checked also how long Ms. Mason has been asleep, only a couple hours. Then I checked Edwards and saw he's been asleep for 9 hours. I sat my clipboard back on the table and turned around and saw Edward staring at me.
I flet a light blush creep onto my cheecks and he looked down to his hands in his lap. I looked closer on his face and saw a light smile on his lips. "Are you hungry?" I asked him but I don't think he was paying attention. "Mr. Mason?"
That made him snap out of it, he looked up to me. "Please call me Edward." He said in his velvet voice and his green eyes sparkling.
I smiled to him, "Alright, Edward." He smiled to me and I smiled back. "Would you like something to eat?"
He shook his head and looked over to his mother. He looked concerned, his face a little sad. I grabbed my clipboard and checked when he ate last, a few hours before he fell asleep. I looked up from my clipboard and saw him staring at me again. I looked back at my clipboard and felt my cheecks getting red.
"Edward, dear, leave the poor girl alone." My head snapped up to the woman next to Edward. I peeked at Edward quickly and saw a light blush on his cheeks and smiling down at his hands.
I looked back to the woman. "Good afternoon Mrs. Masen." I said to her politly. I quickly wrote down what time she woke up on my clipboard and sat it back down. "How are you feeling?" I asked as I looked at her again.
"Quite fine, but please do call me Elizbeth." I smiled to her and nodded. She smiled to me then looked over to her son.
I decided to give them a little privacy and left with my clipboard. I went to the wing desk and gave it to the person so they could register the new information. While I waited for the papers back I felt a light smile on my lips that I couldn't get off.
I watched the girl, Bella, leave the room. She was beautiful, it was great to wake up to her. I peeked over to my mom and saw her smiling to me with a knowing look. I sighed and she laughed. "So a nurse, hhhmmm?" She asked.
I could feel a light blush on my face and she smiled more. "I just met her mother, let not jump to conclusions. She is very beautiful though." I heard my mom laugh and I felt my cheeks go red because I didn't mean to say the lat part outloud.
"Its okay Edward. Your just growing up so fast. And she is beautiful." I smiled over to my mother. "And I guess it was time for you to find a lady and her to capture your heart." She laughed and I rolled my eyes.
"I doubt that she would find me intresting." I said lowly but my mother caught it.
"Just do what you've been doing. I can already tell she likes you. Have you been talking to her?" She asked, and I shook my head. "Well then talk to her. But don't worry about me listening i'm going back to sleep, good luck." She gave me her motherly smile and closed her eyes. It was probably good how much she was sleeping, she needed more energy. Just then Bella walked into the room, I felt my smile return. Bella looked at my mother than to me.
"How long has she been asleep?" Bella asked me quietly. Her voice was also beautiful, just like her.
"She just fell asleep." I answered and she she wrote something down on her clipboard. I knew she was going to have to leave soon because of her shift, but I was nervous to say something. But it was now or never. "So how old are you?" I asked and she looked up at me with her big brown eyes.
She smiled to me, "A lady never reveals her age." I felt myself frown and she laughed. Her laugh was musical, I felt entranced. "I'm seventeen" She said still smiling and I smiled back. "And you?"
"Seventeen as well." I said. Then she tucked a strand of her hair behind her ear. "Your beautiful." I blurted out, stupid medicine.
She laughed again and smiled to me. "Thank you." She walked over to the end of my bad and sat down. "Your not so bad yourself." Her cooks were a light shade of pink. I felt estatic inside cause she complimented me and this is turning out good. "Are you hungry now?" She asked me, breaking me out of my thoughts. She looked hopeful and that made think when I ate last. I think it was yesterday, not really sure.
"Yes?" It was more of a question and she laughed. I was starting to fall for this girl more and more even though I just met her. And I'm loving every moment of it.
Suddnley she got up and I missed her closeness. "I'll be back in a second." She left out the door and the room suddnly got quiet.
Just then the door opened and I smiled thinking Bella was back already. But insted it was Dr. Cullen. My smiled faded a little. He looked around the room for a second before looking at me. "Where has Miss. Swan gone to?" He asked me a little worried.
"She went to get me food real quick." I said and his face calmed down a bit. Just then Bella walked in with my food on a tray.
She gasped a little when she Dr.Cullen. "Hello Dr. Cullen." She said walking over to my and placing the tray next to the side table. Then she walked back over to Dr. Cullen
"I can see your doing a fine job." He said in a low voice, but I could still hear him. Bella had a small smile on her lips. "In a couple hours another nurse will come in and take over so you can go home." She nodded and Dr. Cullen left. I felt a little sad that she was leaving in a little bit, but it was getting late and she needed to go home.
She looked over to me and did a small laugh. I looked at her confuised, was there drool or something on me? "Do you need some help eating?" She asked smiling, I felt a small blush on my cheeks. She walked over to my mother and felt her face. I picked up my plate from the tray and sat it in my lap. I looked down at it, tring to figure out what it was. I heard a small laugh besides me and I looked up. Bella stood besides me with a beautiful smile on her lips. "Its liver." I made a grossed out look and she laughed more. "I'm kidding. Its only lasagna." I looked back down at the food, it sure didn't look like lasagna, I don't think it should have a grey spot in it.
"Are you sure this is edable?" I asked looking at her. She smiled as her brown eyes sparkled.
"I'm not totally sure. But it was the only thing they had." I decided to be bold and took a bite. And might I say it was the worst thing I've ever tasted. I started coughing and Bella quickly came to my side and patted my back. She handed me a glass of water and I gladly took it. After a few sips I stopped coughing. "Hm, I don't think that was a good idea i'm guessing?" I laughed and nodded.
After eating that I felt like I could take on anything. I looked at Bella and saw she was writing something down again. She placed the clipboard down and walked back over to my bed. She stood next to me then placed her hand on my forehead then my cheek. I placed my hand ontop of hers before she could take it off. I felt a spark go though my body from my hand. She looked at our hands then to my eyes. I scooted over on my bed and patted on the empty spot for her to sit down.
"I don't know if thats a great idea Edward." She said softly. I just rolled my eyes and gently pulled her down with me. She laid down next to me and looked at me through her lashes. She looked even more beautiful, she was going to be the death of me.
I should probably give her a reason for why shes laying in a bed with a total stranger. I looked into her deep chocolate eyes and she stared at me. "You've been standing all day, you needed to sit." She smiled to me and scooted up so we were eye level now.
"So your taking care of me now?" She asked, her eyes sparkling.
"I guess you could say that." I said as I smiled. I brought my hand up to her face and tucked a piece of her hair behind her ear. "Whats your favorite color?" I asked, wanting to know everything about her.
She bit her bottom lip, making her look cute. "It changes day to day." She smiled to me with a light blush on her cheeks. We continued asking each other questions till we heard a knowck on the door. Another nurse walked into the room and Bella quickly got off the bed. I sighed as I watched as Bella leave. She gave me a quick smile then left out the door, taking my heart with her
