Every week, at least twice a week, nurses are leaving the ship in large numbers. Now that surgeries are finished and the hospital is closing down, we aren't the ones who are crucially needed anymore. And so as the goodbyes get harder and harder, we also try harder to make the last days together memorable. One of the many I really don't want to say goodbye to is Merry. The night before she left I was trying to track her down, hoping to spend some time with her.
Completely lacking manners (or just comfortable with my welcome, you be the judge), I went to her room and opened the door without knocking. There stood Merry, Alyssa and Noel, busy writing... something... on papers on the wall. Suddenly Noel and Alyssa are standing facing me, blocking my view and looking very guilty, shooing me out of the room. So I left.
