Inspired by: I Want You
Jen looked out from her office to see a lone figure standing in the lab. She gathered up her things so she could leave immediately after her confession. She took a deep breath and confidently stride into the lab. She cleared her throat to get their attention.
“I have to get this off my chest. I have liked you since the day I started working here. I’m sure you don’t remember, but the first time I saw you is etched in my mind.
“You came in here, practically running, specks of blood on your lab coat. You needed results immediately because one of your patients was coughing up blood. I was eager to help. You left to put on fresh scrubs, and I tested and analyzed the sample.
“The results were being printed as you came back into the lab looking so beautiful and powerful. The paper was still warm, and I handed it off to you. You scrunched your nose as you searched for the pertinent information. You thanked me for getting the results so quickly and ran out of the lab.
“My heart never beat so fast, and I never knew how to tell you. But I couldn’t go another day without saying something. It’s okay if you don’t feel the same way I just…thought I’d let you know.”
Sadie stood in the lab, mouth agape.
“Jen, I don’t know… I had no idea.”
“It’s okay. I feel so much better getting it off my chest. Kind of a coward move dropping this on a Friday, but it already took me years to even get this far. Have a good weekend.”
Jen walked out of the lab past a stunned Sadie. As Jen walked through the threshold into the hallway, Sadie turned and said, “Have a good weekend.”
