Continuation of 'And The Wind'  
As Chief of Medicine, it’s Perry Cox’s responsibility to tell the other staff members of the situation. He says the situation, because if he calls it anything other than that, it would be impossible to remain professional for everyone else, especially when it’s hard enough to stay professional for himself.
 
There’s a certain camaraderie, a certain solidarity in the hospital that Perry has noticed at times like this. Everybody is untied by shock, and by grief and by concern for the other members of staff who were closer to those at the centre of the tragedy than they are. Were. They fight and beat Death every day, which is why situations (that word again) hit them harder. But, even if they weren’t doctors and nurses and even if they didn’t fight Death every day, it would be impossible not to be hit hard by this.
 
Perry concludes his talk to the hospital staff (including the janitor) by saying that they need to stay strong because the patients need them to keep it together. They really can’t deal with any more deaths today. But if anybody wants to talk about it, the hospital’s grief counsellor, Dr Hedrick who is standing to his right, will be available at any time to talk.
 
As grief-shaken hospital personnel file quietly, solemnly out of the doctor’s lounge, Hedrick says, “That applies to you to, you know.”
 
“I’m sorry?”
 
The shorter man smiles comfortingly (or at least an attempt at comforting). “Feel free to talk to me at any time if you need it.”
 
Perry and Hedrick had never been the best of colleagues, but this is not the time for petty conflict.
 
“Thank you.”
 
“If you want,” Hedrick says, “I can even call the family members.”
 
“No thank you. This is something I need to do.”
 
Hedrick nods, and leaves Cox to his own grieving process.
 
One of the nurses has been good enough to have the contact details on the nurses’ station for him.  He goes to the nearest phone and dials the number written on the page. When the person on the other end of the line answers, it hurts Perry to think that they have no idea what’s about to hit them.
 
“Hello, Dan,” he says nervously. “This is Perry Cox speaking. I think… I think you should down, buddy.”

*creeps in nervoulsy* Hi! How much do you hate me right now?

Tortured Chickenxxcozmicstar on May 10th, 2008 11:34 pm (UTC)
I haven't really decided yet...

On a scale from 1 to 10..probably a 29.

Aw dude, that's cold.....
Tortured Chickenxxcozmicstar on May 11th, 2008 07:50 am (UTC)
I know, but lets face it. I can never hate you. Even if you kill people.

I was just overcome with the grief of you killing the HAPPY DORIAN FAMILY.

But, uhm, I love you?
talking_cookietalking_cookie on May 11th, 2008 08:31 am (UTC)
Aw, I love you too. *hugs* haha.

Can I point out that I haven't yet told you who is (was) *in* the happy Dorian family? :)

If its Sammy that just makes it worse...!!

(and on a sub-note I think they might kill off someone major at the end of season 8, like JD or Elliot....)
talking_cookietalking_cookie on May 11th, 2008 10:55 am (UTC)
lol. Yes, it probably would be.

(And are you being serious? Or are you just trying to make me feel bad?)
brajaviobrajavio on May 11th, 2008 10:59 am (UTC)
Ah, so its not Sammy ;) Haha, it might be Rowdy!!! :O Nooo!!

(yes I am serious)

talking_cookietalking_cookie on May 11th, 2008 11:01 am (UTC)
Seriously? I don't know. I don't think they'd angst up the end like that.
brajaviobrajavio on May 11th, 2008 11:05 am (UTC)
Eh, I'm probably wrong and I aint saying its likely, but I can see it happening.
Tortured Chickenxxcozmicstar on May 11th, 2008 07:44 pm (UTC)
If it was Kim, that won't be too bad. :D
talking_cookietalking_cookie on May 11th, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
Well, no it wouldn't... but.... well...

...you cruel human being. *bawl*
talking_cookietalking_cookie on May 11th, 2008 09:28 am (UTC)
Yes... yes I am.

*taps fingers impatiently wanting to know who died*

If it's like Elusive and it's Elliot again, with added JD and Sammy I will kill you >:(

Can you make it obvious who it is in the next chapter, you're cruel to keep us hanging like this :(
talking_cookietalking_cookie on July 23rd, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
Well..... um..... All I can say is, as of 4.59pm on 23/7/08, Sammy is not one of the ones who dies. I'm not telling you who else is at this moment, but it's not Sammy.

Yes, yes I am cruel. Just as if you don't hate me enough already, I've hardly written anything since this one. Although, there is another section written somewhere else on this journal.

I'll try to write more of this one tomorrow, but I should let you know that none of it just now is in any real order; I'm writing each sort of... section as it comes to me then I'll rearrange them once I'm completed. :)
