    I have to agree with Deb - Excellent snark and rightly said - Cole definitely deserved his few choice words! I loved McCoy's comforting him in this - and the TLC to come for everyone! This was another great use of the prompt. =D= :)

    yes and continued in the next one

    The new prompt had me continuing the story



    Three times a lady

    "Three Times a Lady" the Lionel Richie song was playing in Cole and Jenna Benson’s when a pager began to add its dissonant tones.

    Cole was the first to notice it. It was his and he was reaching for the ‘offender’ when Jenna caught his reaching hand.

    “It can wait.” Jenna began to stroke him on his back.

    Beep pi beep pi. Trrrr trrrrr.

    Another beep and Cole – hand entangled with Jenna’s – caught the vibrating pager just before it began to fall from the nightstand.

    “Got you!” Cole held the small screen before his face and gave an apologetic shrug. “It’s the medbay with an emergency. I have to go imme…”

    Beep pi beep pi. The pager beeped and vibrated again.

    “Hurry my love and return,” Jenna let go of his hand.

    “You are my first and everything. You are my lady,” Cole slipped from the bed and reached for his boxers, donned them and ran to the door.

    - - -

    There was a soft laugh from an ensign when Cole sped past. Cole had a smile on his face. By now the crew of the Enterprise was used to him running to an emergency on bare feet and dressed scantily. And entering medbay he heard the musical laugh of Jana John and saw her bioluminescent patterns flashing with delight. She was the second lady in his life – professionally – just like the third lady who began to speak.

    “I know what you were doing,” Christine Chapel laughed.

    “You can go back as soon as possible,” McCoy continued appearing behind her. “But we need you. Majeski is already in the OR. Scrub.”

    “And a scrub room-fight after the procedure,” Cole grinned when McCoy began to brief him. He was glad that ensign Wandaso was alright and that Spock was with his lady. The emergency was unrelated to the haunting mission to extricate the hostages.

    LOL and SQUEE! I know Cole is anxious to get back to Jenna and she unfortunately must be used to 'pesky interruptions'. Love Cole's kind thoughts about Chris and Jana. @};-

    Fun to read all the prompts that I have missed in so far. I am never able to write short stuff even though I tend to give my kindergarten kids rather short explanations unless they yearn for longer ones.

    :D

    Had great fun with the new one
    But first some mayhem
    Again a short story filled with fun


    Magnet and Steel

    Lionel Majeski was doubled over with laughter. Seeing McCoy with a surprised look on his face had him getting another squirt out of the plastic squeeze-bottle and landing it this time on the dirty greens of the senior.

    “Who started this,” McCoy thundered, eyes now gleaming with laughter and searching for something to retaliate. The scrub-room was a mess with streams of soapy water on the floor and discarded greens, gloves and empty squeeze-bottles everywhere. And the beginning of the mayhem was there.

    “Benson of course,” Lionel grabbed the sponge that had been McCoy’s target and flipped it over the closed door of the shower-cubicle. The occupant was silent.

    “Magnet and steel,” McCoy grinned. “I knew it when I saw the mischievous look in Benson’s eyes when he left the OR, followed by you and heard the ruckus after giving our patient into the loving care of Christine. You had to retaliate after his bucket-and-water trap.”

    “Magnet Majeski, hey I like your new name.” A sponge came – now wet with soap and water – sailing back and landed after Lionel gave it a slap with his hand on the much abused greens of McCoy.

    Lionel reached down to pick up a water-filled glove.

    “Magnet and steel,” McCoy hurried to a changing cubicle. “You two are a great combination to make my life hazardous even in the safest place on the Enterprise.”

    “Steel catch this.”

    “Back to you magnet.”

    “And to the most hazardous place,” Lionel roared with laughter when the water filled glove sailed after McCoy and connected with his butt.

    More fun coming
    Continuing from the previous prompt with



    Opaque, Translucent , Transparent

    Nurse Jana John was smiling when she saw McCoy escaping the Majeski and Benson created mayhem and diving into one of the shower-cubicles. His very dirty greens were sporting a very wet spot on his butt. His shower-cubicle had an opaque door – not that much to see when he doffed his greens – but the one where Benson was staying had a translucent door.
    Jana John knew why.
    A previous scrub-room fight – years ago with surgeon Jeran Baldavin and nurse Ker Djarada scheming to make life for all the medical staff very interesting – had ended with a demolished door. The techs were to blame. They had come with a spare door, sporting a translucent window. And was that the end? No.
    Baldavin and Djarada had come up with a new prank with the cooperation of a certain engineer. Scotty had provided the door looking like all the other opaque doors until… Jana John broke down in laughter.

    “Ah the doors,” Lionel Majeski came from his shower-cubicle.

    “What doors?” Cole Benson opened his door. “What’s so funny about doors?”

    “Shh,” Lionel whispered.

    “I know,” McCoy shouted over the noise of the pouring water.

    “He knows,” Jana John laughed.

    “I don’t,” Cole said. “Can you tell me what’s so funny?”

    “Scotty placed a door that was opaque until the occupant of the shower-cubicle turned on the water,” Jana replied. “The transparent door revealed all of…”

    “Majeski,” McCoy shouted. “And now get cleaning.”

    After the fun a more serious piece inspired by the new prompt



    Beneath the surface

    Lionel Majeski was a skilled specialist and a funny guy but beneath the surface of professional care and ending almost always a procedure with pranks and mayhem was the soft and tender mind of a man who had seen much in his youth. The last patient on the table – an older man in the security department – had him remembering his youth and the offer of Jeran Baldavin to come to Aldebaran five to join him in the children’s hospital.

    Meeting Jeran all those years ago – shortly after Jeran had joined the crew of the Enterprise thanks to the timely interference of Admiral Morales, Spock, Uhura and Florian McLintlock – had him thinking about his childhood. Jeran had shown him pictures of Panusconi, the admiral who had wanted him and his colleague and friend Ker Djarada to join him in his cyborg program. And the picture of Panusconi had Lionel becoming teary eyed and confiding to Jeran that he had been abused by a relative of the admiral.
    Jeran had made the offer during that talk.

    And the events from a few months ago – with again Panusconi trying to get Jeran and Ker in his devious clutches – had started the longing to become a doctor for the children. Even more after Cole Benson – looking like Djarada – had joined the Enterprise. Sure Cole was a funny guy and a pleasure to work with.
    Lionel was now sure about his future.

    And again a touching update
    Thanks again and here is the next part



    Bothered, Bewitched, Bewildered

    “Lionel,” McCoy shook his head. “I didn’t know you were that bothered by our devious admiral Panusconi. You want to leave as soon as possible?”

    “Sure,” Lionel Majeski had a soft look in his eyes. “You don’t know what began when I was a five year old boy and living in the same neighbourhood as Harry Panusconi.”

    “Who was Harry Panusconi?”

    “He was an uncle of the admiral and very friendly towards my parents. He offered his assistance.” Lionel sagged down in his chair supporting his head with his hands. “Yeah my parents had jobs requiring them to be away often. I was alone with him and…”

    McCoy saw the bewildered looks appearing in Lionel’s eyes. “He abused you and told you…”

    “That I would be bewitched by him if I told my parents about the things he did with me,” Lionel became teary eyed and told more about the abuse. He ended “now you know why I want to be on that shore-leave shuttle to New Vulcan. From there I can catch a transport to Aldebaran five.”

    “You will get my place,” McCoy began to smile despite the information just revealed to him. “A certain officer and his girl-friend will act maybe a bit bothered by my absence on the shore-leave party but he certainly will not be bewildered or bewitched.”

    “Nyota Uhura will have him bewitched and bewildered,” Lionel had laughter breaking through his tears, now of joy. He was leaving the Enterprise. “And please don’t tell anyone that I am leaving.”

    “I won’t,” McCoy grinned. “None of the crew will be bothered, bewitched and bewildered by your absence. Just me. I have to find a new sleep-doctor to bewitch my patients. Get packing Lionel.”

    Oh, Lionel. :( That was a difficult history to read about, but I was certainly touched by McCoy's grace and accommodation on the matter, as hard as it was. [:D]

    Thanks for the nice replies.
    And now introducing his replacement in a short piece with the new prompt



    Warmed by the fire

    Smiling dark brown eyes in a pale face surrounded by a mop of rather longish grey hair, a scruffy beard and moustache and a long thin and gangly frame, was the right way to describe Nick Roberts. And what was he doing just after his arrival?
    He was sneaking towards the medbay to surprise his new commanding officer. Sure he had heard enough from his friend from his childhood days Lionel Majeski that the guy named McCoy was full of snips and snarks and caustic remarks but that he could partake in a good scrub-room fight. And he came to a halt, peeking around the doorframe when the door slided open to see…a lovely blonde with eyes that seemed warmed by the fire within.
    ‘Lionel, you never wrote in your letters about having colleagues that lovely,’ Nick took some firm steps, bowed down and said “I am Nick Roberts.”

    And Nick and Christine are here again
    He is here in the new part



    Stand your ground.

    “Grey Horse,” Christine hurried inside the medbay, coming on early duty after her communicator had startled her awake from some lovely dreams. Sure the conversation with Nyota had her returning to her cabin with a big smile on her face. Nick Roberts was real nice. And she had discovered his nickname when she strolled past the recreation hall where Alberts – one of the junior ensigns enlisted at the security department – had recognised him immediately from the tour of duty at the academy. The ensign had jumped from behind a pillar and had shouted ‘Grey Horse, you still stand your ground I presume.’ And she had heard the reply. ‘I do and I hope you don’t need my services again.’ What was further discussed was unintelligible and she hoped that more would be revealed when she met Nick again.

    “Chris,” Nick looked up from what he was doing. “You know my nickname.”

    “I overheard some of the conversation yesterday between you and Alberts,” Chris chuckled.

    “I see.”

    “And why were you so resolute?”

    “I had him in the academy medward and he was very unhappy about me keeping him in his bed hooked up to tubes and whatever. He wanted to leave as soon as possible but with severe blood loss after a badly fractured femur he just had to stay.”

    “And you could convince him?”

    “Yes, after promising him that I would use my negotiating skills to get him enlisted on one of the starships.”

    “And you never knew that you would end up on the same starship.”

    “No and it doesn’t matter. You are here and that’s nice. Watching basketball this evening?”

    “Sure Grey Horse and I will bring the oats.”

    “Popcorn I hope.”

    “Sure and now let’s see if ensign Jalolla is ready for wake up,” Chris began to help.

    Coming up with the next one and continuing a story begun by Nyota's Heart in the edited challenge



    Aftermath
    “Matthews is awake and lucid,” Nick was busy turning a used blue glove into a ball before removing the second one.

    “I didn’t expect you so soon after the long procedure,” McCoy grumped good-natured when he saw the second glove getting the same treatment.

    “I needed to see him and,” Nick threw the ball towards his superior.

    “Humph,” McCoy ducked and saw the blue ball sailing towards an opening door. “Fun you like to have in the aftermath of a difficult procedure.”

    “Men,” Christine grinned. “One is imitating Yoda and the other a pranking Jedi healer. And both are adorable.” With that said, she entered the ward where more patients were waiting for her tender and loving care.

    “Yoda you are, healer I am,” Nick had the second blue ball bouncing towards McCoy who caught the thing expertly.

    The game was on.
