Seattle Grace Memorial Hospital.
Located within the overcast state of Washington and perpetual gloomy overcast, Addison Montgomery had once held her head high with dignity. With her world class career in neonatal and obstetrics, she had at one point managed to be the highest paid surgeon within the pacific northwest. Though no amount of money could put a dent in what was currently happening. With back-to-back surgical procedures on her board today, the redhead hadn’t had the opportunity to as much as look up from her scalpel until she’d finished her final delivery.
Coming out after changing into her usual pink colored scrubs, the doctor eyed the hallway with a squint. Residents, nurses, and patients alike had all but bolted. As much as she’d prided herself in her degrees from Yale and Columbia University, the state of the world outside the walls of this hospital was far from any scientific explanation she would ever manage.
“An apocalypse…” She deadpanned at one of the fellow residents. “You’re sure it’s not a full moon--? Something reasonable?” The redhead mocked incredulously, still not buying the story. Overhearing the comment for her to look for herself, Addison almost wished she’d stayed in the safety of her operating room. With a quick check on her phone, media coverage across the country had begun to broadcast their new reality. Her jaw ticked ever so slightly, and her instincts of fight or flight began to wash over her usual calm demeanor. She had to get the hell out of dodge.
Clutching her coffee in her well-manicured hand, the woman didn’t waste any time in hurrying to the locker where she kept her things. After piling all the contents of her life from the hospital into her bag, Addison didn’t waste time in keeping her head low as she evacuated.
