In My Veins - story

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐IN MY VEINS We make our own fairytales. No one can tell us how to live our life. Some of us have daydreams of being a movie star or a teacher. Some don?t dream at all. But it?s okay. Until someone will took it all from us... First breath. More and more blood covers the spotlessly clean floor... I remember that an hour ago I was whining about the sleepless night. Being a surgeon can be the enervating profession. Every triumph you celebrate, every moment of joy is evanescent when you have an emergency call from the hospital. Second breath. Why the hell there must be so much blood?! Through all those years of studying Medicine I was subjected to many tasks that had to assess my ability to work under the constant pressure.

And some date? Wait, what?! Where is Will and Peggy? Why isn?t she shot? Why isn?t she in hospital?s bed?! ?Mary?! Come on, why have such a stupid expression on your face? GET UP AND HELP ME!? ?So? All of it was just a dream? A nightmare? ? she whispered more to herself than to a talkative blond roommate.? ?What? What kind of nightmare?? ?That I was a surgeon? And I shot myself? I think I had some kind of schizophrenia? ? That made the other girl laugh. She laughed so hard that Mary thought she?ll have to seduce her? Or give her a cup of melissa. ?And when I said that medical school can really mess up with people?s mind, no one believed me!? Word count: 1091 ...read more.
