I like fast cars and a stiff drink.
I hate drugs. I can’t stand the idiots who take them and I loathe the bastards who supply them. Drugs cost me my whole world.
I wear many faces; right now I’m Doctor Lucas Callaghan and I’ll be him until I get my revenge.
My real name will be the last words to ever pass their lips.
I hate my name, Aoife Brennan, as soon as people hear it they treat me differently because of my father.
Medical school isn’t my dream, it’s his. But, it’s the least I owe him after everything I’ve done. I’m trying to be a good girl, but even good girls make mistakes.
He’s lying about who he is, she’s kidding herself about who she can be. They’re polar opposites with one very big secret in common.
Please note: SCRUBS is a novella serial. Part One ends on a cliffhanger. 18+ adult content and language.
He grins. It’s wickedly seductive. ‘Do you want me to help or don’t you?’
‘Oh, my God, this is mad.’
‘Haven’t you ever done anything mad before, Doctor Brennan?’
‘Well, yeah, but not something like this. This could get you fired. Or get me kicked out of another class.’
‘It could. But as I said earlier, I won’t tell if you don’t. Now, lock the door and let’s get to work. I’ll meet you in the sitting room, I mean waiting room, in two minutes.’
He stands up and walks away, and I watch him like a schoolgirl with a silly crush on the captain of the football team. Maybe I should tell him that I can’t touch patients. Maybe I should tell him it’s because I spent two hours trying to resuscitate my mother, but all I did was crack two of her ribs. Maybe I should tell him that sometimes when I close my eyes, I could still see her blood on my hands. Maybe I should tell him that it didn’t matter what I did; I could never save her. She was already dead. Maybe I should do a lot of things right now, and playing doctors and nurses with Lucas Callaghan is certainly not one of them. I can’t touch patients because it reminds me of how much I failed my mother. But all I can think about right now is how much I want to touch him. This is a mistake. This is a mistake. But I’ve made so many mistakes already. This is one I really want to make.
