My new job

The Letter

Getting new job is always wonderful thing that makes person feel happy, doesn't it? In my case i was both happy and surprised when i got letter from mail telling me that i got job as nurse in ward that was for cancer patients, happy for the opportunity to learn new things and payment was good for person who had still the package of student loan hanging over my head. Surprised i was because of my experience on the field was so low.

Letter was like the usual ones telling how grateful they were to have new member to their hospital staff and how they were looking forward of the time we would spend there as big family, but there the normality stopped.

What followed were the rules of the ward. Some were normal rules that every hospital and ward might have, but some were almost disturbing ..

rule 1: Hospital staff have to wear working clothes no t-shirts and jeans allowed 

rule 2: due to risk of contamination cloves need to be changed in between two patients before exiting one room.

rule 3: for your own safety and for safety of patients you are not allowed to wear any hanging material such as ear rings, piercings. Those might cause risk of infection and danger to be torn off 

rule 4: washing hands before and after attending to patients is important

rule 5: the image of the hospital is important do not wear too much make up or too bright hair color

rule:6 when ever encounter patients that are silent and pale on wards corridor do not speak to them. it is matter of respect to let them be 

rule 7: you are not allowed to take any money or gifts from patients or their relatives. all donations belong to hospital

rule8: when you hear screaming from dark and empty room for the peace of your mind let it be

rule 9: doctors and nurses are not for moral reasons allowed to be social together after or during work hours 

rule 10: if you see woman walking besides examination table and crying do not look at her it makes her more upset

rule 11: make sure your wallet, keys and mobile phone are locked on nurses changing room during working hours 

rule 12:all mobile phones and tablets must be turned off during sift 

rule 13: if someone asks for help and bleeds and everyone just walks by it is better for you to ignore it. he or she just might go away

rule 14: if you make mistake and something attacks you for not following rules, please do not be loud . wards patients need their rest 

Im sure you will be happy and find our ward to be relaxing and wonderful place to work.

yours Head nurse Miranda Mckinley

Caitlin E. Jones: There is something genuinely sweet, child-like, and heartfelt about stories where books comes to life. For me, at the least, since one of my favorite books- "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke, uses the concept lavishly. This piece brought back those same warm feelings, with its loyalty to the fairytale...

Kastril Nomenclature: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Kastril Nomenclature: What a fascinating work: a photo that seems to reveal a strange figure in the window of an old hotel leads to a mystery about a missing page of Queen Victoria's diary! This is a mystery in the best sense, with small clues leading to bigger ones, all of them building one upon the other to the quie...

M.L. Bull: Hello, Aalia!Your story compelled the emotional pain and struggle of a teenage girl very well.. The imagery was also convincing and well-written, showing the different personalities of your characters and their actions. However, I do think that many of your sentences are too lengthy and could use...

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...

mjtelesca: The plot keeps the reader interested, and you want to help the main characters in their conflicts. A very interesting ending that makes the reader think and talk about it. Minor punctuation and grammatical mistakes but does not impede the overall story. Any fan of action/adventure will enjoy t...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Caitlin E. Jones: Such a riveting short story, full to the brim with folklore and horrors! The rich details used to make up Doolin were as well-placed as they were written, right down to the disturbing presence of magical creatures. The lives of the humans are used to great effect, giving us short glimpses of thei...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.
