     “I’d really like to see the hospital’s emergency department,” Mrs. Greenly said, breaking through Virginia’s thoughts.
     Anywhere but there, her inner voice screamed, but instead Virginia nodded. “Of course. If you’ll follow me?”
     Why? Her stomach felt like it was about to bottom out to the soles of her feet. Virginia had planned to steer clear of the emergency room. There were so many more “tame” departments at Bayview Grace.
     Departments with Attendings who were more polished and less dangerous to her senses.
     Bayview Grace’s ER Attending was the quintessential bad boy of the hospital.
     She led the investors and the board of directors towards the emergency department and tried to think back to the posted schedule and whether Dr. Gavin Brice was scheduled for the day shift, because even though Dr. Brice was a brilliant surgeon he and the board of directors didn’t see eye to eye.
     Maybe he’s not working?
     Oh, who was she kidding? He was always working and she admired him for that, except this one time she wished he wasn’t so efficient.
     Virginia had been the one to push for them to hire Brice. They hadn’t been impressed with his extensive CV. The board had wanted a more glamorous, “citified” surgeon. Not one who’d gotten his hands dirty and lived rough.
     “It’s all on your head, Dr. Potter. If Dr. Brice fails, you fail.”
     The threat had been clear.
     At first Virginia had been nervous, because hiring Dr. Brice had put her job on the line, but then she’d realized she was being silly. His work with Border Free Physicians, practicing surgery in developing countries around the world, was an experience in itself. His survival rates were the highest she’d ever seen.
     There was no way Dr. Brice would not succeed at Bayview Grace.
     She’d see to it, but the board still wasn’t impressed with him.
     His survival rates were still high. Topnotch, in fact, but Gavin was unorthodox and a wild mustang on the surgical floor.
     He had no patience for surgical interns. No patience for anyone really.
     Gavin followed his own rules when it came to practicing medicine. He was the perpetual thorn in Virginia’s side.
     Please, don’t be on duty. Please, don’t be on duty.
     The board of directors and their investors headed into the emergency department.
     “Get out of the way!”
     Virginia just had time to grab Mrs. Greenly out of the line of fire as a gurney came rushing by from one of the trauma pods.
     Speak of the devil.
     Gavin Brice was on top of a man, pumping an Ambu bag and shouting orders to a group of flustered interns.
     “There’s no time, he has a pneumothorax. We have to insert a chest tube.” He climbed down and handed the operation of the manual respirator over to a resident.
     Oh. My. God. Did he just say what I thought he said?
