AUTHOR: Me, Anna
ARCHIVE: (if you want a notice) yea what does this mean?
SUMMARY: Carter and Kerry have a mistaken incident

“That’ll be $1500 dollars Dr. Carter.”

Finally the perfect ring had been found. Carter had been looking for the perfect engagement ring for Kerry, and finally he found it.

“Kerry when do you get off?” Malucci asked.

“In about 15 minutes, why?”

Tears started to swell in the corner of Dave’s eyes. It had been a difficult week for Dave. His daughter, Jessica, was just diagnosed with Leukemia.

“Dave, what's wrong. Is everything okay?” Kerry asked with a sincere tone.

“I just found that Jess's state is a lot worse then what we thought. She might not make it through the week.”

“Dave I am so sorry. I didn’t know it was this bad. Gosh, my words can’t tell you how sorry I am.” Kerry said. Her eyes were about to burst with tears.

*Knock, Knock* Kerry limped to the door. It had been a rough day, she just found out that Dave’s daughter was going to die sooner than they thought. She opened the door. There stood the tall, gorgeous and not to mention Kerry’s love, John Carter.

“Hey baby, how are you?” Carter asked thrilled to see her.

“I’m good, its been a rough day.” Kerry said.

As they came in the house and sat down. John leaned in and kissed her passionately on the lips.

“Kerry would you like to have dinner with me tonight?” Carter asked. He was going to purpose to Kerry tonight.

“Sure, John. What time?”

“About say 8. Then lets go walk down by the lake.”

“OK, 8, it is. Well I have to go to the store. You can come with me if you want to.”

“I have to run my the hospital so I’m just going to on there. And I’ll see you tonight.” Carter said looking so happy. He would finally get to ask the love of his life to be his wife. All the other girls Anna, Rena, even Abby didn’t mean as much to him as Kerry did. But now after 3 years of waiting she was finally going to be his.

It was about 7:30 and Kerry was looking stunning. She was wearing a black silk cocktail dress. It was beautiful. The telephone rang as Kerry was just finishing pulling her hair back. It was Dave.

“Kerry, can you come by the hospital. Jessica just dropped her stats. You’re the only doctor I really trust right now. Please Kerry, please.” Dave said. He was crying so hard. Kerry couldn’t say no.

“Yea, Dave I’ll be there in 10 minutes.” Kerry said. She knew she was suppose to meet Carter in 30 minutes. But a child, a friends child, was in a life threatening situation. Kerry beeped Carter, and told him that she would have to cancel their date. And to call her later tonight.

At County Jessica was getting worse. The doctors didn’t think she would make it through the next night.

“I can’t believe this is happening. Just a few weeks ago she was playing and having the time of her life. Two weeks later she’s lying in a hospital bed with a machine breathing for her. What the heck is going on? How can this be happening to an extraordinary little girl?” Dave asked Kerry as the both sat at her bedside.

“Dave, sometimes we don’t know why stuff like this happens. It just does. But in the end everything will be okay. And if its not the okay then its not the end. IF you do lose this little girl. I’ll always be there for you to talk to. No matter what.” Kerry said. This is really the first time Kerry had seen Malucci look so scared. But then again his daughters’ life is at stake.

Something good is getting ready to happen. Check out part 2 coming soon!!

The Ring Part 2

“Dave what time is it?” Kerry asked.

“3:24am.” Dave answered.

Kerry had been with Dave all night. He was losing his little girl. He needed a friend. She hadn’t talked to Carter since that night. He was disappointed because they didn’t have dinner that night.

“Dave I’m gonna go to the lounge and check my message’s. I’ll be back in a few minutes.”

Kerry checked her messages. She had 4 from Carter. She knew he wasn’t checking up on her. Just wanted to make sure she was ok. Just as she got done finishing her last message, Carter walked in.

“Where have you been? You didn’t return any of my calls. I was so scared Kerry. I thought you were hurt. Oh man.” Carter said as he grabbed and held Kerry.

“I’m fine, I’ve been here with Dave all night.” Kerry stopped there. Even that didn’t sound right.

“What?!? You mean I waited at your house while you were here with DAVE. My gosh Kerry.” Carter said. The look in his eyes was to much for Kerry.

“Carter, John, its not what it sounded like. He’s upset his daughter is dying. He needed a friend. And he called me.”

“Oh, well I’m sorry his daughter is dying, but why didn’t you tell me? I would’ve liked to know.” Carter asked..

Well everything was worked out between Kerry and Carter. But not everything was good with Dave. Jessica died. And having no one else to reach out to, he reached out to Kerry.

(At Doc Magoo’s)

“She’s gone. Its been two days. She’s really gone. I’ll wake up thinking its a dream. But its not. And it hurts...bad.”

“I’m sorry Dave, this is so hard for me to understand. I’ve never really lost someone that close to me. But I know its hard.” Kerry said.

As they were about to leave Dave did something totally unexpected....he kissed her. Right when Carter walked in.

The Ring Part 3

“Kerry?!?” John said with a look of hurt, anger and confusion in his eyes.

“What are you doing Kerry?”

“John its not what it looks like. I didn’t kiss him.” Kerry said. She had promised Carter she would never hurt him. But she just broke that promise.

“Carter, its not what it looks like, really.” Dave said. He didn’t mean any harm. He didn’t really even like Kerry like that. He just acted on an impulse.

*Beeeeeeeeep* John its Kerry please, please pick up I know you’re home. John I love you. And I really want to talk to you. John, please call me. Or beep me. I love you.

Carter had been sitting at home in the dark. Crying and thinking. Did Kerry really want to hurt him that much. Or did he just read the situation wrong. Kerry had called 5 times already. Should he call her? Or was it just a waste of time?

“Carter, I’m coming over I’m going to talk to you.” Kerry said. You could tell she was on her cell.

*Knock, Knock*

“Carter its me open up please.”

Carter made his way over to the door. Standing there was Kerry. She had been crying. She looked like she needed a hug. Carter opened his arms inviting the very familiar body into his arms. And the she accepted.

“John it wasn’t what it looked like I swear. Dave kissed me. I had no clue he was going to do that. After you left he told me he didn’t know what he was doing. He was so sorry if he had ruined our relationship. Carter, I love you with all my heart. I could spend the rest of my life with you. I would do nothing to hurt you. I swear.” Kerry said. She was so beautiful when she was sincere. Carter loved that.

“I know you didn’t want to hurt me. I came home and thought about all the great times together. And I was like this beautiful, intelligent and loving women wouldn’t hurt me. So Kerry Elizabeth Weaver, will you marry me?” Carter got down on one knee right there. And purposed.

Of course Kerry accepted. They were married on June 4th. Carter’s birthday. They have one daughter, Sara Jane Carter. Of course thats a whole different story!

The End
