Give Me Strength by Joey (Fan Fiction)
Another little short... enjoy :)
Cristina [Narrating]: People are weak. I see weakness all the time. The woman who gives up her life to have babies, the man who gave up his career to travel the world. Its weakness, it’s giving up. I hate quitters, quitters are stupid. What is the point in starting something if you’re not going to complete it? I commit. If I am serious about something, I commit to it. I don’t do things by half, I don’t beg for help, I man up. People are weak. I, am strong.
[A woman is on a stretcher being carried out of an ambulance, she is frowning with a burn mark on her head and a feeble looking man follows her]
Cristina: What have we got?
Ambulance Man: 32 year old female, wax burns to her head and eye
Linda: Candle Wax, this jackass thought he was being romantic
Ray: I’m sorry! I thought I’d try and cheer you up
Linda: Do I look happy Ray? Do I?!
Linda: Don’t babe me, I’m blind
Cristina: Um, page Sloan. Are you feeling any pain?
Linda: No, these burns are quite pleasurable
[They are taken into a treatment room]
Cristina: 10mg of acetaminophen and bolus IV
Linda: You hear that, Ray, they’re drugging me!
Cristina: You’re going to have to be calm so I can examine you
Linda: RAY YOU JACKASS
Cristina: SHUT UP
[Linda stares at Cristina]
Cristina: Good, now I’m going to take a look at the eye
[Cristina peels back the bandage and we see the eye is badly burnt]
Ray: Oh god..
Cristina: Get him out of her
Ray: Linda, I’m sorry!
Cristina: You said it
[Sloan walks in]
Sloan: This better be good Yang, I was on the phone to an estate agent
Cristina: You and Lexi are getting a house?
Sloan: No, I’M getting a house
Cristina: For yourself?
Cristina: OK... 32 year old female with candle wax burns to her forehead and eye
Sloan: Candle Wax?
Cristina: Romance gone wrong
Linda: Romance my ass, the guy wouldn’t know romance if it bit him on his ass
Sloan: Let’s have a look here
[Sloan pulls back the bandage]
Sloan: OK, the burn to your forehead will heal by itself. What I am worried about though is the burn to the eyelid...
[Lexi walks in]
Sloan: Dr Grey, perhaps you could explain the risks of an eyelid burn
Lexi: Um, Corneal Dehydration and ulceration?
Linda: Will I go blind?
Sloan: No, but we’re going to have to perform what’s called Debridement to that burn in order for it to heal. This is a minor surgery...
Sloan: I’ll take away the dead skin tissue
Linda: But surgery?
Cristina: The other method would be autolytic where we would use wet gauze in order to allow the wound to heal the dead tissue itself, however, with the nature of the injury it’s important we remove the dead right away
Linda: What are the risks?
Sloan: With any surgery there are risks. I will have a Ophthalmic surgeon with me but I assure you I am the best plastic surgeon around
Linda: I’ll have the surgery, on one condition
Linda: You make that jackass fiancée of mine watch
[Sloan and Cristina stare at each other, we move to the nurses station where Meredith and Derek are stood talking]
Derek: Mrs Shepherd
Meredith: I’m not changing my name, Derek
Meredith: No! You got your wedding
Derek: My wedding?
Meredith: Can’t you just be happy that we’re married
Derek: How about a baby?
Derek: I want your crappy babies, remember?
Meredith: I didn’t mean straight away
Derek: Why not?
Meredith: Are you serious?
Meredith: You want children?
[Derek’s pager goes off]
Derek: Got to go
[Derek runs off as Meredith stands shocked. Cristina by, looks at Meredith and walks back]
Cristina: You OK Mer?
Meredith: Derek wants babies
Cristina: That’s crazy
Meredith: Thank you!
Cristina: Love is stupid anyway
Meredith: You and Owen not doing too good?
Cristina: Oh we’re fine; eventually he’ll pluck up the courage to actually touch me
Meredith: At least he doesn’t want babies
[Cristina’s pager bleeps]
Cristina: It’s my eyelid burn woman
Meredith: Eyelid? Ouch!
Cristina: Her fiancée burnt her with a candle
Meredith: Who said romance was dead?
[Cristina walks off. A woman walks by with a pushchair, Meredith looks at her]
Meredith: Stupid babies
[Cut to the treatment room]
Ray: How are you feeling?
Linda: Over the moon Ray, you should burn me more often
Ray: For god’s sake I was being romantic you bitch!
[Everyone looks shocked]
Cristina: This can wait, there’s a bit of a delay
Linda: Don’t talk to me like that
Ray: I’m sick of you, I try and I try...
Linda: What do you want Ray?
Ray: Compassion! I mean, come on, I proposed to you and all you said was “I guess... now get up you’re embarrassing me”
Linda: Everyone was looking!
Ray: Because that’s what people do when something amazing has happened but not you, I mean, you don’t even want a proper wedding
Linda: Are you still going on about that?
Ray: You never say I love you
Linda: I do!
Ray: You’ve never said it, what are you? An ice queen? I’m surprised those burns haven’t healed already
Ray: I’m sick of you
Linda: Ray, please
Ray: It’s too late now
Linda: RAY I CAN’T SEE
Linda: Get help!
Ray: HELP, HELP!
[Ray runs into the corridor]
Ray: DOCTOR, HELP, SHE’S GONE BLIND
[Cristina rushes in]
Cristina: Can you see this?
[She holds up a pen]
Linda: Everything has gone dark
[Sloan comes in]
Sloan: What happened?
Cristina: Sudden loss of sight
Sloan: We need to remove that dead tissue, has she been using the artificial tears?
Sloan: Ma’am the burn to your eyelid may be deeper than we thought. Grey, ring the OR, tell them we’re on our way. You’re going to be fine
[Lexi goes to phone as Sloan walks out, Cristina and the nurses raise the sides of the bed and begin to wheel her out]
[Linda extends her hand, Ray grabs it]
Linda: I love you
Ray: I love you too
[He kisses her forehead as she’s wheeled out. Cut to Meredith at the desk, doing charts. Callie sits next to her]
Meredith: Dr Torres
[There is an awkward silence]
Callie: Congratulations on getting married
Callie: Should we be calling you Meredith Shepherd now?
Callie: Oh right... it’ll be babies next
Meredith: What is with people and freakin’ babies?!
[Arizona walks over and leans over the desk]
Arizona: I just saved a babies life!
Meredith: I’m out of here
[Arizona and Callie stare at her, confused, as Meredith leaves with her charts]
Arizona: Dinner and a movie tonight?
Arizona: Fancy, I know. I was thinking Pizza?
Callie: Sounds perfect
[Arizona and Callie kiss. Callie smiles and Arizona walks away. Cut to the treatment room and Linda is back from surgery and Ray is at her bed side. Cristina enters]
Cristina: So the surgery went well from our part. We’re going to take off the bandages and then hopefully, it’ll be a result
[Cristina unravels the bandages from around Linda’s face. She steps back as Linda looks over at Ray]
Linda: I can see you!
[Ray’s eyes fill with tears]
Ray: I’m so sorry
Linda: No, I am
Ray: I love you
Linda: I love you to
Cristina [Narrating]: Weakness... the universal trait. We are all weak in some way. Weak in tackling a problem face on...
[We see Cristina in the car park, Owen is on the other side, he simply waves]
Cristina [Narrating]: Weak in deciding what you want...
[Meredith and Derek meet in the lobby, they hold hands and Meredith clutches her stomach as they walk out]
Cristina [Narrating]: Which is why we have to embrace the moments when we are strong, when we do what we were committed to doing. That’s when you can truly say... I am strong.
