John is 5ft 8 inches, has lots of dark black hair with a few greying pieces at the side of his head. He wears small dark round glasses and has a moustache that is almost completely grey. John is a slim man as he knows the importance of keeping himself healthy as every day he sees so many people who have not. John is a very kind man who is always so calm and patient with everyone.
To work John wears a red tie, with a sharp white shirt, some shiny loafers and a classy black pin stripe suit. He has a very precious gold watch that his wife Prada gave him as a wedding present 30 years ago and a small gold braclet that a client gave him. John has twin boys called Sachin and Shiv who are 23 years old who are both at University.
Every day John travels into London but today was going to be a very different day he was flying to New York on a business trip to a meeting with all the top doctors in the world. The alarm did not go off and he overslept, he missed his train to the airport and had to get a later flight. As he settled into his seat on the Jumbo, the airhostess offered him a large black coffee. He read the papers and then closed his eyes. This afternoon was going to be the first meeting and he didn’t want to be tired.
In his sleep he could hear voices screaming at the back of the plane and then an announcement if there was a doctor on board. He waited five minutes until another announcement came and by this time he could tell it was a ladies voice that was screaming. He gets up from his seat and looks for the airhostess to let her know that he is a doctor and can he help. As he got closer and closer he knew that she was very pregnant and about to have a baby. John had never felt himself panic before, he was now not going to be a heart surgeon but instead was going to be a doctor who was going to have to deliver a baby.
John took a deep breath and decided he had to calm down. He was normally so calm but this time so many people were watching him and he did not know if he could do this. Mary was moved to the front of the plane to have the baby. Normally John saved lives but now high above the Atlantic Ocean he was bringing a new life into the world. After the baby had been delivered John sat there holding the baby in his arms. Mary decided to call the baby after him – Johnster.
John arrived in New York exhausted but proud of what he had just done. He left his cases at the hotel and went to the meeting where he could now say he really was a great doctor.
