Clarke had seen her fair share of horrible things in four long years as an army medic. When someone asked why she did the job when it was so hard, it all boiled down to her patients. Amazingly enough, her moments of clarity happened when she stayed up late into the night making sure everyone in her beds kept breathing. This particular night, her focus was on the man in bed three. Bellamy Blake was on his third tour. He’d crashed three times since coming in sixteen hours ago with shrapnel in his abdomen, twice during surgery.
Clarke was determined that he would make it home.
“I can take over,” Jackson offered, tapping at her shoulder.
She shook her head, rubbing at her eyes as she shifted in her hardbacked chair.
“It’s my shift,” Clarke said, accepting the cup of coffee that he held out to her. “I’ll sleep…”
“When you’re dead?” Jackson cut in.
She let out a laugh before looking at First Lieutenant Blake.
