It was late-May and again hurricane Lucy blew through Kelly's frantically searching for last minute details for the Nurse's Ball which would be next week. We had already agreed to do the show again, each of the couples was going to do a song. We had already found dresses, mine was a long silver dress, Elizabeth was wearing Purple, and Emily was in Gold, all Chloe Morgan originals. "Are you sure this is a good idea?" Lucky said jokingly as he watched Lucy bark orders into her cell phone. "Aww she's harmless," Nikolas said with a chuckle.
The night of the Nurse's Ball brought back wonderful memories from last year when things weren't so complicated yet. Lucy was only wearing 9 different outfits, one for each year of the Ball, much to the delight of Amy backstage who had to dress her again.
"Welcome ladies and gentleman, to the 9th annual General Hospital Nurse's Ball," Lucy said, wearing a deep red dress. "For the 4th year in a row Elizabeth Webber has designed our beautiful t-shirts," Lucy said, and then went backstage to change into a pale blue leather pants outfit.
"Our first act tonight is Zander Smith and Emily Quartermaine singing "Nobody Wants to be Lonely" by Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin." Lucy said as they stepped onto the stage. Emily and Zander sang very well, then it was time for Lucky and Elizabeth to sing together, and Lucy came back onstage in dark green dress. "It's my pleasure to welcome Lucky Spencer and Elizabeth Webber onto the stage to sing "It's Your Love" by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw." Lucy said, going to change yet again. They did a wonderful job, and finally Lucy came back on the stage in outfit number four, a silver half shirt and black skirt and we knew it was our turn to go onstage. "To wrap up our romantic mood tonight we have Nikolas Cassadine and Autumn Johnson singing "From This Moment On" by Shania Twain and Bryan White." Lucy said leaving to get ready for the rest of the show. I was nervous at first as we started out a few feet from each other on stage and then slowly got closer together as the song went on, by the end of the song I was comfortable and Nikolas was standing behind me with his arm around my waist.
After our numbers were done we sat and enjoyed the rest of the ball. Most of Lucy's remaining outfits were pretty normal, different colored dresses, and another pants outfit. Then she came out in her last outfit for her number with some of the doctors from GH. It was a set of scrubs and a hospital robe. Everyone started laughing as they started singing "Doctor, Doctor" The other pieces of the Nurse's Ball, as always, were the chorus line, where Lucy once again lost most of her outfit, and the video letter from Robin in Paris. She was doing okay although she was starting to get sicker than she was last year. Finally we finished off the evening with a sing-a-long led by Ned and Emily to the song " Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel. The Nurse's Ball this year was even better than last year. And we didn't have to worry about anything happening.
We got back to the cottage and were ready to go to bed when all of a sudden there was a knock on the door. "Who can that be at this hour," Nikolas said, slowly going over to the door. I followed behind him although he didn't want me to be scared by whoever it was so he kept me behind him with one arm. The person on the other side of the door simply walked into the cottage and shut the door behind him. "What do you want, it's 2 am?" Nikolas asked. "Well is that anyway to greet your father after all these years Brephos?" Stavros said.
