Amy blinked against the flashing lights as she made her way past knots of people along the side of the road. She walked with steady steps, ignoring the rain that slid under the collar of her raincoat. She had not taken the time to look for her rain shield.
The blue beam of a police barrier blocked her way. Numb, she stared past it at the lights, heard the chatter of emergency communicators as rescue workers coordinated with their central station. Her first reaction, drilled into her from years of medical training, was to determine if they needed her help. But she knew that County Rescue had the situation well in hand and they were adequately staffed. That was not why they had called her away from her post in Antarctica.
