"Did you just yawn? Was that a yawn?" Mark commented when all the residents came out of the elevator. April was yawning. It was around 6 pm and they had the whole day to sleep. Because they were all working the night shift without any attendings. "Don't tell us that you're tired after getting to sleep all day."

"It's not as easy as it sounds." April remarked. 

"Not easy? Not e ..." Bailey scoffed. "When I was a resident, I actually worked for a living. I did every other night call for five years."

"There were days that I didn't go home for 72 hours. I loved it." Stark, the new head of peds, commented.

"As you trudged through the snow while you whittled your own scalpels." Alex muttered making all the residents laugh, but not only the residents.

Natalie tried to hide her laugh but a soft snort came off her mouth, making Mark give her a look. "Sorry." She whispered, but she didn't really mean it, because she hated the new head of peds. and she missed her old friend.

"Uh, Karev, I need you to follow up on my post-ops. And here. Take this research. Divide out all the fistula cases." Bailey told Alex, trying to inform the residents what they were going to do so they could all leave. 

"Avery and little Grey, Hunt is waiting for you in the pit." Natalie told them. "All right. Try not to screw up our patients." She added.

"Gonna be over at the bar. Try not to need us." Mark said as he took Natalie's hand so they could walk together towards the elevator.

"There's the man of the hour." Mark said excited as all the attendings walked into the bar and found Derek. He had won the grand to start his Alzheimer's trials.

"Congratulations." Natalie gave her friend a quick hug. 

"Thank you very much. Thank you." Derek thanked his friends an colleagues as one by one was congratulating him.

"First round is on me." Bailey said but Natalie was too busy with the sight in front of her. The sight of Cristina bartendering.

"Um, guys." She pointed with her eyes at Cristina who was failing miserably at pouring beer into a glass. Everyone walked towards the bar and Natalie couldn't hold back the question, not when her best student was wasting all her talent. "Why are you behind the bar?" She asked and everyone was patiently waiting for a reply. 

"Uh, Owen told me to get a job, so I'm working." Cristina shrugged not wanting to get into details. "What's everyone drinking?"

"There you are!" A voice pierced through Natalie's ears and soon a person attacked her with a tight hug. "There's my brother in-law." Bella hugged Mark next not giving a chance to Natalie to hug her back or react. "I convinced this girl to let me make some cocktails and it's amazing guys." Bella handed them a glass of a red cocktail and Natalie gave Mark a look telling him that he was the one who had to try. "I can totally make some at your wedding. AH, you're getting married I can't believe it!" Bella hugged Natalie again and she mouthed 'help' to Mark who made a face at the strong taste of the alcohol.
