The first hour at least was a welcome chance to think over her decisions from earlier that morning. She had spun round her life on nothing more than a hunch.

The traffic though soon lost its appeal, this is why she thought, that she lived IN New York.

The building and office space were a dream come true, and she ticked off the various specialties in her head as she passed the doors. Even recognised a few names from prominent papers, the halls were busy, but with a hushed calm rather than the clammer she knew in the ER.

Her smile spread as she met Mrs Winters. This was not the usual way her colleagues greeted, but they had also met her before!

Mrs Winters, I’m very glad to be here. she offered her hand to shake. I’m relying on you to get me back up to speed if you can

Mrs. Winters took Sam into the office.
"Oh Margaret, Mr. Elliot did some major changes in your absense. I hope you like it, I think its beautiful!"

The inner side of the consultory, had three offices and three medical examination rooms. Two of the offices were still empty, the largest one was at the back of the place with a big panoramic window to the East River harbor and industrial zones of north Brooklyn.


Each examination room had the basic equiment while the largest one, next to the biggest office was fully equipped with the most advance techonology in general medicine, from the illumination to the electrical reclinable table. It had its own computer and you could do even minor surgeries in this place.


Then they went back to the main office. It had two slidding doors: one to the hallway in front and the other at one side conecting to the largest consultory. It was also beutiful, with another computer a huge bookshelf with the most modern collection of general medicine books and five beutiful pieces of painting, complementary to each other in the opposite wall.

The whole place still smelled like fresh paint. Everything was new.

I think my husband knows me a little too well Amelia

And it was true, she really did prefer the latest reclining chair to a set of diamond earrings!

The city looked beautiful from up here, it wasn’t a view she had seen much or would tire of, she could imagine herself working here, building up a practice, maybe even bring in couple of hopefully competent partners to fill the office space.

Do we have any open cases? I can have a look or take them home.

Failing that, could you show me the system you have set up.

Amelia negated with her head and answered.
"Oh no madam, all the archive was removed for the remodelation. This books and the painting got here this morning, the mobiliary yesterday. The only papers I've are bills left by the contractor for Mr. Elliot. Even the computers are brand new." she said awesomed about it.

"Oh, I have the manuals. Technical descriptions and such." she looks for the handbooks and says.

"Would you like to read them?"

That makes sense, it’s difficult to invent a total life in two weeks...

Sam takes stock of the room, checking which machines she has used before and those that are new to her.

Hmm, let me see.

I think I’ll need the specs for the RT300 and the new scanner.

But I think first we should get some coffee and you can tell me a little about yourself and your experience

The equipment was hardwired to the computer and both computers were in a network. That means that all analysis performed in any of the equipment inside the lab is automatically recorded in both computers and the same software allows to print reports and include medicine for recipes based in a repository from internet where it organized in a database. The whole system was very easy to use.

Amelia and Margaret spent the morning reading manuals and exchaging anecdotes about their experiences. For some reason Amelia thinks to have known Margaret for four years now. With very specific memories about patients and other interesting stories that Samantha knows are false. Amelia had a motormouth, she could talk alone for hours while giggling over coffee and cookies brought from the service-to-office coffeshop.

By noon both were truly amazed about the whole place hopeing for good things in this new begining. Samantha was hungry, longing for the Ellison cousine, surely Martha and Louis the executives chef would spoil her again with a plate of her choosing.

It was a far cry from the hospital canteen, and she hoped they had an account because Sam realised late in the day that she no cash. No cash card and no ID. It wasn’t a usual of comfortable position.

She did however enjoy her time with Amelia, her professional nature appealed to Sam, and conversation was easy.

Do we have an account with a local restaurant? I’m getting hungry!

Amelia was a very nice person. Light and smooth, very polite and easy going.

Amelia opened her eyes widely and with a complicity look.
"Let me call the restaurant to ask that."

A few minutes after and a lot of chit chat on the phone she comes back with a big smile.
"We have a table reserved. Mr Ellison already had arrangements."

I think Mr Ellison is a mind reader.

Either that or he is making sure I take a break and has an excellent co-conspirator


It seems she would eat well after all.

Letting Amelia take the lead, she didn’t know this part of the city well, they go in search of sustenance

Samantha realized that this building had two restaurant when Amelia pushed the button to the roof as she kept talking about its beautiful view and that she had never eaten there *it was too expensive* she whispered into Sam's ear.

The first restaurant Samantha saw when coming into the building, really good looking with a streetview and very fancy furniture. The rooftop restaurant The Medicci was italian, not the kind that serves only pizza but somekind of gourment italian food specialist. Very exclusive.


After lunch time blazed away in no time just spending the afternoon talking to someone as pintorestic as Amelia. Samantha knew everything about her cats, her moron husband addicted to american football and details about recipes and her taste for infusions, foods and pretty much everything. Not a very good listener but definetely someone to spend your afternoon just thinking about the future.

At opportune time, Samantha was ready to go down and meet with the driver in the basement.

Sam breathed a sigh of relief as she entered the calm of the car.

The lunch had been delicious, Amelia’s company entertaining enough, but some, most of it came across to her as trivial. It would be different once the work actually started she thought, if things went well there would be busy days, and she hoped some interesting cases, god forbid she grew to miss the unpredictable nature of the ER.

Well I think we can chalk that up as a successful day Amelia she said as she gathered her coat to head downstairs.

I’m not exactly sure when things will return to normal, but this was a good start.

Leaving the older woman to close up the office, Sam heads downstairs, even with the traffic she should hopefully make it back in reasonable time, perhaps even a selfish nap in the car while they make the trek back.

Manhattan traffic at peak hour, crossing the bridge to Brooklyn, to then leave toward Long Island was more of an epic journy worthy of Tolkien's book than a normal day-by-day trip to work. Samantha got time to sleep, to read, to meditate and to get bored as hell. Fortunally the TV was available in the backsit with satelite signal for her enterteinment, as well as the minibar and few other gadgets.

At 5:01pm in the middle of the Manhattan Bridge Daniel, the driver, received a call to the car but Samantha couldn't hear anything from the back sit. It was quick and he hang almost inmediately.



Eventually she got to Ellison's Castle, very late almost 8pm, she wonder if Eliah was there already. Daniel came to open her door in front of the house but when Samantha got out was him, Eliah the gentleman holding her door open.

Visiting the practice (samantha)

Post  Dr Samantha Wilson on Thu Sep 06, 2018 10:19 am

The journey was everything that Sam hated, souring the time she had spent at the office and allowing her to dwell far too long on hastily made decisions.

She was not one to overthink a decision, part of that was her ability to reach them quickly, the other was her reluctance to back down afterwards.  Arguing a lost case hadn’t helped her career...

Her mood brightens as they leave the city and gain pace.  

So much for being back at 5pm..

It was already dark as they rolled up the long stretch to the house, and the structure was once more bathed in soft light spreading to the gardens.  This time her own memories filled the scene, it was just as beautiful, holding the promise of things to come.

Her head was full of apologies for the late arrival, the traffic.  But it went silent as she saw Eliah open the door and her eyes searched his face for a clue on his mood.

(To be continued...)
