The hospital bustles with activity. 

At one point, they hear arguing outside the door. 

Permalink

Well, Topher is still decompressing over what happend to Izakin and Temple is still checking things.

Sovie tries to overhear.

Permalink

A man with a soft, gentle voice speaks angrily, insisting that any intruders should be treated as threats, until they can properly contain them.

Permalink

Another voice urges caution.

Permalink

Sovie backs away slowly and waits until Temple can interrupt his work and passes him a note explaining what she heard. The note is written in an ancient Elan language and Sovie is using her magic to allow Temple to read.

Permalink

Temple reads the note. "I will improve the wards accordingly."

He starts fiddling with the wards so they will filter drugs in the air and grant more generalized protection.

Permalink

The sounds of the argument fade, and they hear retreating footsteps.

Permalink

Ezra is currently duplicating Izakin's memories to himself in case the drug has some weird effect. He tries very hard not to think about what would've happened if he had been drugged. How long are they left alone?

Permalink

About four hours.

Permalink

That is enough for Temple to have a draft to the improved ward, but not long enough to just implement it. What happens after four hours?

Permalink

There's a knock at the door.

Permalink

Sovie is the one to answer.

Permalink

"Hello. I take it you're my new patients?"

Permalink

Sovie looks down at him. "Uh, I don't remember being referred as patient."

Permalink

Okay, just hearing the word "patient" causes the air around Ezra to chill considerably.

Permalink

"Until you've been confirmed uninfected, you're my patients, or you're a threat to the survival of our species."

His cane taps against the door as he steps inside.

Permalink

"That sounds reasonable. What is the problem with your eyes?"

Permalink

"Temple!"

Permalink

"Sorry, mom, I just wanted to know if we could fix it."

Permalink

"If I remember correctly, they were gouged out by a rather frustrating man." 

Permalink

 

...

Permalink

"What does being your patient means exactly?"

Permalink

"Either you convince me you don't need treatment, or you accept treatment."

Permalink

"Convince you? I was under the impression the fungus was something testable."

Permalink

"It's a bit difficult to examine a memetic hazard, but yes, we can test for it in certain cases."
