It's eerie. This place is never quiet. Even in the wee hours - the graveyard shift - the infirmary's fully staffed, so you'd expect noise. There's a constant drone of medical equipment, soft moans followed by murmurs of comfort - sounds in the silence of healing.

It's now, late at night, when I catch myself straining for the sound of her heels. Who'd of thought I'd miss that damn penlight - the steel in her voice bossing me around? Yeah, it's eerie, but I can still feel her presence in the shadows of duty. Still keeping an eye on us, aren't ya, Doc?
