If you follow along here on my blog at all, you’ve probably seen that I’ve got a little series of posts where I’m rewriting the flashback scenes from ’Til Death Do Us Part to be from Sam’s POV.
Although To Love and To Cherish does have a couple flashback scenes, they’re in the form of Nash’s dreams, and they don’t involve the other MC. However, the entire story is told from Nash’s POV, and I thought it would be fun to pick some scenes to redo from Myles’ (Emmitt’s) POV.
“So the patient with the open tibia fracture I’m expecting is yours, then?” Nash asked.
“He’s been assigned to you?” Myles replied.
Great. Just great. Myles really didn’t need the added challenge of keeping his inappropriate crush on Nash buried today of all days.
Myles regarded Nash for a moment then blinked. “Great.”
Unfortunately, his tone more closely mirrored his frustrated thoughts than the sentiment that should have accompanied those words.
Nash’s posture immediately stiffened. “I assure you I’m a very competent nurse. Your patient is in good hands.” Nash’s clipped tones shared what was obviously his true feelings better than the civil words had done.
Myles took a deep breath, trying to maintain his composure. Of course Nash was a competent nurse. Nash was one of the better educated nurses as well as being authentically compassionate, gentle, and attentive. That’s why he’d specifically requested Nash to be the day nurse in charge of his grandfather’s care, so why the man would think he felt differently was a mystery.
“I’m not suggesting otherwise.” Again, his tone was more terse than intended.
Nash’s face reddened, and he pursed his lips as if biting back further words. Probably for the best since Myles was having obvious problems conveying his meaning.
The elevator doors opened at the lobby. A number of other people joined them, mostly visitors, but another nurse stepped on, her eyebrows raising slightly, apparently sensing the tension in the elevator.
