What You'll Find Here
Situated above the daily life of the city, Anacosta Heights is a tucked away suburb featuring extravagant neo-gothic inspired mansions. The inhabitants of this neighborhood often show their overwhelming wealth with sports cars lining their long, circular driveways, large pools, and manicured gardens. The homeowners of Anacosta Heights treasure their privacy as seen by the high iron gates to the security personnel present at every entrance.
Dupont Circle is a small suburban neighborhood settled within the serene portion of the southern portion of town. These four-bedroom, single-family homes feature back yards, porches, garages, and far more breathing space then the Village offers. This neighborhood often is more family orientated and even has organized events for children and the neighborhood as a whole.
Settled in the middle of downtown, Hawthorn Village consists of several victorian inspired row houses just off the main street. Due to it's convenience to just about everything, the village can be a tad expensive to live within. However, the residents of this neighborhood often have two to three-story townhouses, often with a one to two-car garage. Many of the houses feature bay windows and/or rooftop terraces with a small fenced-in 'yard'.
River Dale primarily consists of apartments that, despite their age and industrial appearing interior, still hold to the Victorian history that permeates the town. These apartments are often the cheapest option and sport scuffed, older wooden floors, open floor plans, visible beams, and the occasional brick wall.
The sound of the sirens and the flashing lights melted away. It was like an out of body experience being loaded into the ambulance and rushed to the hospital. Surely she was going to wake up any second back in her bed with the twins snuggled up on one side and Frost fighting for the covers on her other side. Nadya's gaze drifted back to Frost after watching the paramedics hook her up to the monitors. She could feel twinges against their bond from him. A tension of sorts that had Nadya blinking through her own red-eyed fog. She hardly had time to form any sort of intelligent query before the ambulance halted in front of the hospital and out Frost leapt before the doors had even completely opened.
The paramedics met with the triage nurses in handing over Nadya on the stretcher. Their exchange didn't really register with her as she was more focused on the fact that Frost had been separated. Nadya could tell the moment that Frost was stopped by a nurse that it wasn't going to end well for that woman. "You shouldn't-...wait..-" She tried to point it out to one of the triage wheeling her away, knowing full well how intense he could be and not wishing that unleashed on the unsuspecting humans. Her words fell on deaf ears though as she was put in a room leaving Frost unchecked. When would the world learn that he was much better behaved with her at his side? Honestly, it was in everyone's best interest.
The nurse could do little more than stammer at Frost's outburst as he seemed to grow ever taller the more insistent he became. "It's...It's just a sensitive...most men...the husbands...they don't want to be a part of it." She didn't dare reach back for the clipboard for fear that her hand would be bitten off. "She's..she's been taken to the private exam room 1." The nurse indicated the short hallway Nadya had been taken down before scuttling away.
Nadya's attention turned towards the door at it opening, seeing Frost walk in and immediately gave him a questioning look. "Do we have to send flowers and an apology card? Or pay for therapy now?" How bad did he lash out at someone out there. At least she had found some sense of herself again enough to poke at his over-protective nature. Still, she reached out a hand for his, wanting that simple touch of reassurance that he was finally back at her side where he belonged. The room was of ample size with the obligatory posters about vaccines, nutrition, and STD's.
It seemed like forever waiting under those stark lights before the door opened once more and in walked the doctor and nurse wheeling a cart laden with equipment. "My name's Dr.Whitman and this is my nurse Julia. I see we've had a rough night." The man sat himself on the wheeling stool, glancing at Nadya's chart of notes from the paramedics before addressing the pair once more. "We're just going to take a look first to see what's going on and we'll go from there." He offered a small reassuring smile then turned to the nurse who began to hook up all the wires to the machine on the cart. At least that machine Nadya was familiar with. The ultrasound screen lit up and the doctor parted the gown at Nadya's midsection to squeeze the gel onto her abdomen, his eyes glued to the black and white image as he maneuvered the wand. Nadya glanced up at Frost as she gently squeezed his hand. A male doctor was nothing they could control since ERs were generally limited at this time of the night.
The doctor took a minute, this way and that, but Nadya knew what he was looking for and not finding...a heartbeat. The only sound on the machine was the faint whooshing of her own blood through her body with no hummingbird to celebrate. The nurse shut off the machine as soon as the doctor nodded and briskly left the room. The doctor turned back to the couple and handed Nadya a cloth which she busied herself wiping the gel from her abdomen. "So...it looks like you did miscarry." The doctor glanced between Frost and Nadya. Loss of any kind was always a difficult thing for a doctor. "Now, since it was a mid term miscarriage, your body is unable to absorb everything. We need to clear everything out so there isn't an infection. It can take a few hours to start working but the pill is inserted into your cervix which will help soften it and cause the contractions. I'll prescribe some pain medication to manage the pain as well."
Nadya could only nod numbly. What other choice did she have? The nurse had returned to the room with another tray of instruments. Oh yes, those she recognized from her ob/gyn appointments. Nadya took a deep breath and laid back in her seat, squeezing Frost's hand once more to get his attention. "Look at me." She whispered up at him as her feet were put up in the stirrups and the doctor ducked between her legs. Nadya winced slightly at the cold instruments poking and stretching the very tender flesh but otherwise kept her gaze locked on Frost. She really didn't want him concentrating at all on the stranger between her thighs, doctor or not, she knew her mate. "I think we should take the twins to Disneyworld." It was her attempt at distraction at least.
