Afternoon at the SGH Cafeteria  
Izzie smiles to herself and take another sip of her tea. It's pouring outside, but somehow she feels like the sun is shining down on her. She sits alone for now, enjoying the solitude. The other day with Finn was unexpected but somehow refreshing. They talked for hours afterwards and he convinced her to reconsider her internship at Seattle Grace.

Izzie had just finished a two hour meeting with the Chief and Dr. Bailey and was granted permission to continue her internship. Even though she is now under strict probation and being watched like a hawk by Bailey, she doesn't mind so much. She tugs her lab coat around her tighter and it's as if she's starting to become whole again.

She hasn't told her friends yet and she grins to herself again, imagining their faces when they see her sitting casually in the caf in her scrubs and lab coat.

(ooc: I needed to get back in the game and fast forward through some stuff...bare with me here. And someone join Izzie for a little chat.)

"Well between Addison and Slone, I haven't seen the inside of an OR in a month either," he considers this not having really realized how long it had been since he had scrubbed in on an actually procedure-not counting c-sections.

They reach the next set of stairs, continuing their slow climb.

"Not like you'd get any good surgeries anyways. Not with the twins doing every Attending in the hospital."

"Aren't we a pair?" she asks jokingly. "Should I put your name on the seat next to mine in the gallery?

They reach the floor and Izzie opens the door, going through first then holding it open for Alex to follow her.

"Twins?" she asks as they make their way to the labs department.

"Grey and Yang."

Still seeing her blank look.

"Shepherd and Burke. They don't pick anyone else to scrub in besides whoever is occupying their bed."

He follows her through the door and into the hallway where the lab results for prenatal are located.

"You've only been gone a month Iz, nothings changed."

"Unbelievable," she remarks and stands in line behind another doctor waiting for results. As much as she loved her friends, the hypocrisy was irritating. They constantly talked about things being fair and unbiased, and yet it was pure coincidence to them that they just happened to get all the best surgeries and that they just happened to be screwing the Attendings in charge.

She shakes her head and gives Alex a sympathetic look but breaks into a playful smile. "Well if this is how the hppsital works, it looks like you're going to have to sleep with Dr. Montgomery-Shepherd, and I'll have to sleep with Dr. Sloan if we want any OR time these days..."

"They would be so lucky." He says out of the side of his mouth, smirking at her before looking up at the nurse whose standing behind the window.

"Lucy Collen for Dr. Montomgomery-Shepherd." Alex slides the results off the counter before tilting them towards Izzie. Her eyes light up as she takes the file and both of them head back towards the stairs.

"Ooooohh" she coos as she takes the files. "Aww, twins!" she comments as she flips through the results and hands them back to Alex. "Too bad it isn't surgical."

They enter the stairwell and suddenly stop dead in their tracks when they hear Bailey's voice. She must be on the phone talking to someone and her voice is getting closer as she comes down the stairs.

"Shit!" Izzie whispers under her breath and grabs Alex by the arm, pulling him down the stairwell in the opposite direction of Bailey's footsteps.
alexkare_v on November 27th, 2006 11:16 pm (UTC)
She's practically pulling him down the entire flight of stairs, taking each step two at a time down the first level then the next. He stops her, pushing her up against the wall of one of the stair wells shielding her with his body as they both pause to listen. They can still hear Bailey's voice and it's still loud but at least it doesn't sound like it's getting louder.

They're both breathing semi-hard and he's fighting the urge to laugh when he whispers behind his shoulder. "Shit that was close."
Izzie Stevens: izzie and alex are amusedizzzie_stevens on November 28th, 2006 05:53 am (UTC)
She covers his mouth with her fingertips to shut him up. Bailey could easily hear them whispering and seek them out.

Izzie tries to ignore the fact that Alex's entire body is pressed up against hers as they continue to hide from their resident. The contrast of the cold wall behind her and his warm body in front of her is a little distracting but she snaps back to reality when the doorway above them opens and Bailey's voice fades away once the door closes again. She rests her head on his shoulder and allows herself to giggle at the absurdity of the situation.
alexkare_v on November 29th, 2006 08:32 pm (UTC)
He hadn't been aware that they were standing so close until she tilts her head and it lands on his shoulder. She's giggling now which makes him groan inwardly because he loves it when she's laughing. Laughing is good.

He turns around, placing one hand on either side of her but so his palms are flat against the wall. He's trying not to laugh too. "I'm never taking you anywhere again."

Izzie can't stop giggling at his expression. She can tell he's trying hard not to laugh but she can see the sides of his mouth twitching upwards.

"Oh, you missed me. Admit it!" she laughs again and her hair falls into her eyes blocking whatever look he may give her.
alexkare_v on November 30th, 2006 09:58 pm (UTC)
Her hair falls into her eyes and he opens his mouth to say something when she reaches up and swipes her bangs back, lifting her head to look at him. Right in that moment, none of the last three months has happened. Denny didn't die, Alex wasn't an ass, Izzie isn’t broken. It was like before, before when things had been easy.

He is staring at her now. Both their breathing slightly louder then normal breathing should be as he starts to lean forward.

But then Denny had died. Alex had been an ass and Izzie was still broken. So he stops. He drops his hands from where they were trapping her against the wall and takes a step back. "Ah, we should…I should deliver those results."
Izzie Stevens: close up scrubsizzzie_stevens on December 1st, 2006 04:27 am (UTC)
Izzie looks up and see's his face leaning closer towards her. She freezes. Her heart speeds up and she feels like she can't breathe. It feels like an eternity before Alex breaks eye contact, drops his hands and steps away. She feels flushed and claustrophobic and she can barely make out what Alex is saying to her.

Slowly, the blood rushing past her ears isn't so deafening and she lets out a breath she didn't realize she was holding.

"Yeah, uh... I should go too." She moves away from the wall and heads in the direction of the locker room. "I have errands to run and stuff. So, yeah!"

An intern from a different service runs past them, taking the stairs three at a time. Izzie takes another step away from Alex and gives him a warm smile, trying to break the awkward silence that follows.

"Well, I'll see you tomorrow, then."
alexkare_v on December 1st, 2006 06:24 am (UTC)
"Yeah. Yeah." He nodds back at her. "Tomorrow." She smiles back and turns to leave. "And Iz- I'm here. Tomorrow I mean. And the next day..." He swings his hands together in front of him as he tries to clarify. "I'm just. Here- If you need me." He adds just to make it sound a little less non Alex.

He grins then too and starts to head back up the flight of stairs they just came from, stopping two flights up to jump and slap the top of the stair well with one palm. "Izzie's back."
Izzie Stevens: pretty blue scrubsizzzie_stevens on December 1st, 2006 04:39 pm (UTC)
Izzie watches him go back up the stairs and smiles to herself. He's definitely different; nicer and less obnoxious. It suits him, but also makes her feel off balance, like she doesn't know what to expect anymore.

She exits the stairwell and spots Bailey heading towards her. Izzie doens't want to know how she managed to get down so quickly, but she doesn't have time to care. She slips into the locker room and quickly changes into her regular clothes. She hangs her stethascope back up in her locker, folds her lab coat and scrubs and shuts the door. She grabs her purse and finally heads out the door.

Bailey is outside giving her a sideways look and Izzie just smiles warmly. "See you tomorrow, Dr. Bailey."

It's still pouring outside when she reaches the lobby and she fumbles with her umbrella for a few seconds. She checks her phone quickly for the time and sees a new message from Finn. She closes her phone before listening to the message, and heads out into the cold rain.
