Clinic, Monday Night

Janet wasn't frantically doing her taxes a week before they were due. Erm. Well, she wasn't frantic, at least.

Lana came into the clinic, looking rather uncomfortable and embarrassed. "Hi. I, um... need to be seen by a doctor," she said softly.

Lana nodded and followed her back.

Lana shifted her weight from foot to foot uneasily, tugging up the turtleneck that kept slipping down. "I, um... need..." she swallowed hard, nausea threatening to overwhelm her again. "I need to be checked for pregnancy and any STDs."

"I..." Lana swallowed hard again. "I don't remember anything, so I don't think it would do any good. I just want to make sure... I don't know who I might have had sex with or whether they used protection, and..." She shook her head, not wanting to go on.

Lana nodded, feeling tears fill her eyes. "Yes. Please. That would work very well."

God. She didn't know what she'd do if she was pregnant. She wouldn't have any way of knowing whose it was. It could even be Jim's. They were pretty careful about using protection, but nothing was perfect.

Lana nodded. "Okay," she said quietly. "The first step is finding out, right? Then... we deal."

"Not knowing what was done with your body for a week is awkward," Lana replied, taking the cup and the gown. "I'll just..." She gestured to the bathroom and headed in.

When she returned, she carefully placed the cup on the counter and slipped up onto the exam table, shuddering as she remembered her encounter with Dr. Troy when she'd come to get stitches.

Lana just lay back on the table, one arm over her face to try and hide the tears that just kept slipping out no matter how hard she tried. When it was over she sat up with relief, tugging the gown around her.

"So, what now?" she asked.

Lana let Janet pat her hand. She felt reassured by her calm attitude. "Thanks. And thanks for earlier - telling me you'd been through something similar. It helps."

Still, she sat nervously, biting her lip and trying not to think of what she'd tell Jim if things didn't work out well.

Lana nodded. "I'll be fine," she said. "Alone is something I've done a lot of the past few days."

Once she'd gone, Lana wrapped her arms around herself tightly and just rocked back and forth. It would be okay. It had to be. One way or another it would work out.

Lana managed a wan smile. "As much as I can be," she said.

Lana swallowed hard, bracing herself for the worst. Part of her wanted to just run, but she'd only have to come back to find out another time. "Okay," she managed.

Lana let out a hard breath, then burst into tears. She dropped her face into her hands and sobbed. "Oh, thank god, thank god."

"Thanks, Janet," she said tearily. "I've been so worried. This whole thing has been such hell."

"It does," Lana assured her. "So much. Just not having to tell Jim..."

She dropped her head, feeling choked up again. "Things have been hard enough without telling him I'm pregnant or have an STD."

"I think I'm good," Lana said. "Didn't even get the bandage on my hand too wet with all the crying. You've done so much. I really appreciate it."

"Thanks," Lana said, finally managing to get herself up out of the chair. "Okay, I'm going to head home now. I know I'm going to sleep a lot better than I did." She managed another smile for her. "I'll see you around."

"I will," Lana said and waved as she headed out.

A tumbleweed came in to see what was going on tonight. The crazy OCD blonde doctor was gone, so it mentally shrugged and rolled back out.
