*I wake up to the tones.*


I was actually asleep! Damn it!


*I get up, doing the typical night call routine. I throw my legs off the bed and into my boots and pants, pulling them up as I stand. I grab my job shirt and pull it over my department T-shirt and grab my department logo'd hat hanging by the door on the way out. I make my way down to the bay, unlock M1, and get into the passenger's side of the cab. I hear the driver's side door open soon after. I pick up the radio while hitting "en route" on the MDC.


"Medic 1 copies, North 3rd and Bay, we're enroute from station." I say over the radio like a half-asleep robot. 


I honestly have no idea what this call even is about, typical 3am bullshit probably. My curiosity gets the best of me and I actually start to read the call on the MDC.


'TC bus....wonderful. Dump truck rear ended an empty bus, calling it now. AMA and back in bed in 25 minutes tops.' I say to Breslin as she closes her door and starts the rig up.


*I notice I haven't scrolled all the way down in the notes. I scroll down and read. My jaw drops*


'Holy shit, nevermind. We might have a legit MCI here.' 


I'm now 100% fully awake.

*Breslin & I get back to the station. As soon as we park, I jump out of the rig and run up to my bunk room. I place my 7-11 Coffee and pre-made sandwich on the bed side table and grab my duffle bag. I quickly proceed out to the bathroom and take a fast shower. Showering while available is always a risky procedure. It's 100% necessary while on a 48, but if you get a call mid-latehr....good luck. I guess I like living dangerously. My shower is quick and efficient. It would have made a navy submarine crew proud. I get out, dry off and put on a new uniform. Now that I'm at least dressed, I proceed to take my time. I get a good shave in (not like I grow facial hair all that quickly), a good teeth scrubbing, and I;m done. Amazing! No call yet.*


*I proceed back to my bunk room, all refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day. I put my duffle bag away and pick up my coffee and sandwich right where I left them. I then proceed out to the living area. There I see Sjostrom watching the ball game. I take a seat at the table and start in on my sandwich.*


'What's the score?' I ask.


I can sense a little tension.


'Hey so I'm sorry about that call. We probably should have just let you do everything, but Breslin had a hair up her ass...she didn't think we needed to be there and all that...you know how she gets sometimes.'


'it was just quicker for us to deal with it. You had an equipment malfunction, shit happens, us just taking over because of that wasn't right, so yea...I apologize. That's on me. Those are the kinds of calls we should let you guys shine on.'

*Breslin gets back in the cab and we start to pull away from the scene*


'I need coffee and a shower stat.' I say.


'You mind stopping at 7-11 on the way back?'  I ask.
