Thread, Gone III
“You certainly do look a lot like Derek.” Emma said to Amelia. “Tell me more about yourself!”
She had known the woman for nearly two hours and she already wanted to strangle her. That chirpy voice was making her nervous. Aside from her, she had met April Kepner, a red headed woman who seemed to be a nice person –though her voice was way more high-pitched than Emma’s- and her husband Jackson Avery. Alex Karev and Arizona Robbins, both pediatric surgeons, along with Maggie Pierce, the woman who had helped her found Owen’s office, were the three people who she had liked the most. Richard Webber seemed like a sweet man, and she suspected that he also had a problem with alcohol, because aside from her, he was the only one who had rejected a glass of wine when offered. That, or he was plainly weird.
And of course, there was Owen. He was sitting next to Emma and –much to her dislike- across from her. He hadn’t even looked her way since he arrived and he was yet to say a word to anyone aside from his fiancée.
“There’s not much to tell about me.” Amelia said, putting a fake smile on her face. “I’m the youngest in my family, also a neurosurgeon, went to Harvard…”
“Married? Do you have kids?” Emma kept interrogating her.
“No and no.”
“But you’re in a relationship right?”
“Um…” Amelia looked around the table for someone to help her out, and finding that every other person was staring expectantly at her, she sighed. “I had something like that back in LA, where I live. But it’s been over for a while now.”
“You know who’ll be able to tell us a lot of things about Amelia?” Meredith said, gazing straight at Owen, who chocked on his wine.
