Doctor Y/n - Attending Orthopedic Surgeon - 6 - Grey's Anatomy x Fem!Reader
"Jackson, I need you out here!" Webber summoned Jackson over to the ambulance bay, where you were helping a woman who had been hit by a tear gas canister get onto a gurney.
"Her name is Nell, that's all I got, she was hit by a tear gas canister!" Webber explained as he and Jackson ran over.
"Shot, not hit. Shot, close range, shrapnel went everywhere." Nell stammered, wincing as she was helped to lay on the gurney.
"Trauma one's open, let's move!"
"What the hell happened?" Jo enquired as she spotted you watching Jackson and Webber take Nell for a CT scan.
"I went to the BLM protests with Webber, she got shot with a tear gas canister, close range. They're taking her up to CT, but there's no fractures, so I'm on the ER." You explained to Jo before heading to go change into scrubs.
"Hey, if you're starting your residency all over again, does that mean I'm your boss now?"
"Either way, I'm still your boss, Schmitt." You interjected, making Levi and Jo jump as you appeared behind them.
"Chill, Schmitt, it's Y/n... but you can carry these for Joey here." You chuckled, passing Levi the box of OB/GYN books that Jo was carrying.
The three of you were heading down the corridor when Teddy appeared, hurrying over to check on you and Jo.
"What's, what happened?" You raised an eyebrow, welcoming the affection as Teddy fawned over the two of you.
"A COVID, uh, denyer died. He refused treatment, thought COVID was a hoax and he walked out, he died barely outside of the ER." Teddy stammered, your breath hitching as you processed the unnecessary death, whilst Jo frowned.
"Oh my god, seriously?"
"I'm going to tell her today." Jo announced, sitting up and throwing the duvet off of her, and sadly, you.
"Tell who what?" You grumbled, rubbing at your eyes as you propped yourself up on one shoulder.
"Tell Bailey I want to switch specialities."
"That's nice... come back to bed, it's 1am." You murmured, letting out a whine as you rolled over and found Teddy's side of the bed empty.
"Aw, are you missing your girlfriend?" Jo teased, slipping back into bed to be the big spoon.
"I think I got used to us being three in the bed... sometimes four if Ally won't settle down..." You admitted, running your hand over the empty space.
"There were four in the bed, and the little one said, roll over, roll over!" Jo quietly sung, right in your ear.
"Shush, sleepy time." You murmured, covering her mouth with your hand jokingly, until she licked it and you were trying not to screech so loud that Allison woke up.
"Can we do movie night tonight?" Jo enquired as she found you at the coffee cart.
"Is this because Jackson disappeared or because Levi is with Nico tonight?" You enquired, quirking a brow as Jo gasped dramatically.
"How dare you, maybe I just want to spend time with you? Especially since I have to talk to Bailey today and yeah, Webber told me everything I need to say, but it's Bailey!" Jo exclaimed as you rolled your eyes downing your coffee then pulling your mask back on.
"Get it over and done with, Joey. Then you can work with Carina DeLuca before she leaves or whatever." You shrugged, walking into the hospital with Jo.
"I miss you." Levi announced, approaching you at the nurses station.
"Excuse me? Are you practicing for Nico?" You gave him a confused look, biting your tongue as Levi sighed.
"No, he won't look at me, I actually miss working with you when ortho's involved in cases, because you'd actually look at me." Levi admitted, pausing for breath as you sighed.
"I don't know what runs through Nico's head, but I wouldn't push him, he might just pull away even more or something." You advised, shrugging as Levi chewed his lip in thought.
Joey: Bailey said no
Joey: she said it's a bad time
Braces: damn, I'm sorry Joey
"Stent looks patent after the procedure." Winston announced, as he, Webber and Teddy looked into Meredith's room.
"And the liver enzymes? The creatinine?" Webber enquired, looking at Winston.
"Then why isn't she waking up? We have given her time. We have given her time, and every test and every treatment. We removed the clot, perfectly - perfectly, and she's still not waking up, and she's still not improving and she's still not going home. Why isn't she-" Teddy began to ramble, staring into Meredith's room.
"I'm sorry, I can't, I have to take a walk." Teddy announced, hurrying away.
Webber paused as he spotted you up the corridor, having heard everything.
"Did she wake up?"
"Not yet." You answered, leaning against the door as Teddy sat on the on-call room bed, breathing heavily.
"What if we did something wrong? What if we caused the clot to break off and she's having a massive stroke right now-"
"What if she's in a dreamscape where she's seeing dead people and has to decide whether to come back or not? There isn't anything to indicate any of it-" You began, but Teddy starting to hyperventilate stopped you.
"Teddy, my love, you need to breathe, okay? Here, do you feel that? Do you feel me? Concentrate on me, Teddy." You murmured, pulling Teddy's hand so it rested over your heart, the feeling of your pulse under Teddy's hand to ground her.
"Just let it out, cry, scream, whatever. Feel it, feel all of it, don't internalise it, let it go..." You whispered, feeling Teddy rest her head against your shoulder as the sobs wracked her body.
Joey: Braces, where are you at?
Joey: Bailey changed her mind
Joey: I'm coming to find you!
"Is that a new intern?" You whispered, a smile on your lips as you watched a suited-up Zola be led into her mother's room.
"Come on, Meredith. Come back for her... she needs you, your daughter needs you, she loves you." You whispered to yourself, so focussed on Zola with Meredith that you didn't notice Teddy's eyes drift to you.
A grin crossed your lips as you spotted it.
Meredith smiling at her daughter.
She was awake.
Teddy was quick to wrap her arms around you and Amelia, smiling as you wrapped your arms around her and Amelia too, a weird sandwich situation occuring as Jo rocked up, having been looking for you.
"Oh my god!" Jo squealed, grinning at everyone as she realised what everyone was watching.
Meredith Grey was finally awake.
