Subtle Paypack

A/N1: Drabble written from a prompt given to me by carinjo.


Janet was, by nature, a caring soul. Her empathy coupled with her seemingly inexhaustible patience made her a good doctor, a good healer. However, even she had her breaking point.

It usually came not during the cacophony of an emergency, but during the quiet times, after the dust had settled and she knew her friends were no longer in danger.

As a doctor she could do no harm. But that didn’t mean she couldn’t act out in subtle ways, pay back those “problem” patients when they got on her last nerve – with the stethoscope she kept in her office refrigerator.
