Finding the heart part 3
Her day started early. She went into the labs and began setting up for all the test she knew she
had to run. Still waiting for some information or ideas to filter her way to
help get these men if they were medically cleared to learn about current
things. She knew this was an up hill
battle but one she was slowly preparing for.
She also couldn’t leave having spent time with them in an enclosed space if
they were accidental carriers she was now infected as well. She hoped her best
was good enough and started prepping medical intake orders that she often used
when in a mass critical event. She opened up the small room that she would use
as an exam room and hoped that they wouldn’t cause too many problems. Her student would be handling her team in that
aspect, because of the severity of the situation the less they knew, the better.
“Princess?”, she heard coming from in back of her to switch
she swung around and saw Sasuke there.
“Damn you are quiet.”, she said,” You shocked me.”
“Ninja.”, he said as it looked like he tried to smile as he
raised his hand.
“So you adapted to the surroundings. Impressive.”, she said,”
What can I help you with?”
“I thought maybe I could help you. If I go first, they
will see what you will do and not put up a fight.”, he said.
“Good thinking, will they put up a fight?”, she asked now
trying to figure out if she needed to load the tranq gun again.
“No, I don’t like it, honestly. I think they may have some feelings of confusion, but overall no one said anything remotely
threatening to or about you. , no I don’t think they will be to much trouble. Well, Kenshin maybe, Ieyasu possibly, okay they
all have some issues, but if they see
what will be done it will calm them down
a bit.”, he said very matter of factly,” Maybe.”
“That is not reassuring me.”, she started to laugh.
“What is so funny?”, a man she hadn’t had much interaction
with said from behind her.
Sauske said for her to know who it was.
“Sasuke was just trying to help, though the offer was good
the amount of reassurance was slightly lacking.”, she said as she turned.
“Do you need reassurance, Kitten?”,
Masamune purred as he moved closer.
“No, I don’t. Kitten really? Princess is bad enough seriously.”, She went back to prepping the room as the two
men went into the large waiting room and sat. As the minutes past soon everyone
was there. The two doctors were done
getting the room ready, and her student
started to work on the team while she asked Sasuke to come in. That was enough for
all of them to feel slighted and start to fuss. “This is to show you what I
will do. Watch through the window and that way there will be no issues when it
is your turn. I am not sure on which order we will do this. So there will be no fighting. I will get to
everyone don’t worry.”
Sasuke nodded and
headed into the room. “What do you want to do first?”, he asked.
“Blood.”, She answered
as she looked behind her and there were faces
staring at them. She prepped the needles and them wiped his arm with a
prep pad. The face he made as in looking
away and trying to look impassive was comical to her as she filled the vials.
After putting a band-aid on it when she went to her check list. As she was putting the labels on she began her questions.
She then did a quick exam, Eyes, ears, nose, and throat and quickly did blood
pressure and pulse. She then listened to his lungs.
“You seem to be the picture of health.”, She said with a smile as she nodded to the
door. She ripped the paper threw it away, sprayed everything down, and scrubbed
her hands. She walked out and placed the vials of blood in the centrifuge and
began pressing buttons. She pulled out her phone and found a random name
generator. ”Okay, this is how I will pick
next. And inputted names and it will pick next.”
“Kenshin.” Popped up on the screen. She had been hoping that
she wouldn’t have to deal with that man for some time, but she called him in.
“I will have to take some blood.”, she said as she got the
vials and needle ready.
“Why do you do this?”, He
asked. His tone wasn’t exactly harsh, but
it was cool and collected.
“Do what?”, she asked.
“This. See all of us, take blood, all of it.”, he asked.
“I am a doctor. Even more
then that I can’t let you outside until I make sure you won’t hurt the people
here and visa versa. It’s my job
more or less. I have to make sure it is safe you come from a place with
diseases we have since cured, you could release them not on purpose but still.”,
“Why did you become a doctor?”, he asked.
“Because I felt it was my calling.”, she said. “I am many
different things; the doctor is just one
He either was taking himself through the exam or didn’t
realize she had been working through out
the whole process as she wrote things down he grew even more talkative. “What
are you writing down?”
“Stats. Your vitals.”, she said with a smile. “It lets me
know things. You are done.”
She began the process of cleaning up to which Sasuke had explained
in the other room why she wasted so much and the reason she did everything. One
by one she went through the bunch, finally by mid
day she had cleared four of them and needed a few other tests for some
others. All were healthy. Masamune was the only one that she had doubts of
clearing a hundred percent.
She was going over her notes when her student came in. “I am
getting the blood results back, something is off and I am not sure what it is.”,
he stated as he pushed his glasses up
“I will look at them in a few minutes.”, She said. She continued to go over her notes
and adding them to her computer for easy
access later on. She had popped in a movie for them to watch and they were all
plastered in front of it right now. A quiet moment, that was rare for her.
She went out and picked up his results quickly going over
them as she spotted what he had seen. It was odd. “clean the machine and run
the test again with a fresh sample.”, She
said hoping the anomaly was due to old equipment. She looked at her tests, and they were coming out as she had expected.
So went took her papers and inputted them into the computer, and her mind kept going back to that test
result. She hoped it was wrong. As the day went on,
they sat in front of the large tv while she worked hard on the computer. No
phone calls had come in, and for that, she was grateful and slightly paranoid. She
sat back in the small exam room she had made and looked at the ten men as they sat there watching tv for the first time.
Something caught in her throat as she watched over them, they were very much
like toddlers. She knew she could not treat them as much, but that was how to teach them. She kept
thinking when her eyes slowly closed and she tucked her legs into the chair.
She had been up throughout the night, and
it finally caught up with her.
James walked into the room as did the rest of her team and
they as well plopped down to watch the movie with the visiting men. James
looked around and saw Princess wasn’t around. He got up and walked to the
window and started to chuckle. His actions brought some of the others also to get up and look in the window. “That
girl, Always working herself too hard and
never sleeping.”, he said.
“She does this often?”,Ieyasu asked.”That cannot be
“It probably isn’t, and she will be bitching about a neck or
back ache later. She is dedicated when
she sets her mind to something god help the person who stands in her way. She
may very well rip off someone’s limbs, and they
beat them with their own arm. She is
ruthless, but on the flip side to that, she will take care of everyone around her
before herself.”, James said as he smiled at the girl as he rounded the room
and turned off the lights.
“No Coup tonight guys.”, he said jokingly to everyone as he
“I don’t think we were even planning one.”, Shingen replied,”Your
princess has taken good care of us so
“She is like that.”, Another team member said.
“She said it was her calling.”, Kenshin replied.
“She did, did she?”, James said as he raised his eyebrows. “She
normally won’t talk about herself. Interesting. In a sense that is correct
though it was her calling, but that isn’t
why she chose it. She was told she couldn’t
do it. From her earliest days, she was told no, and
she couldn’t do things correctly. When she was old enough, she left and proved them all wrong.”
“How do you know her so well?”, Mitsuhide asked, his own interest had been peaked about her the
“I was on the team when she first came to work with us. She
was young, brilliant, and so full of herself.”, He
started as he began to laugh, ”She quickly made her own path and became the lynchpin
to everything. She isn’t just another co-worker to any of us. She is a friend, but more than
that probably like a younger sister.”
“Is she married?”, Yukimura asked,”I can’t see any man allowing her to work as she does if she is.”
“She was. He died some
years back.”, James said. “He was a good guy too. It was an accident, and I don’t think it had been even a year at
the time they had been married. He knew
he couldn’t control her; I don’t think he
even tried. She is a force of nature sometimes.”
“So not married any longer?”, Nobunaga asked.
“No, not to a person. She is married to her work.”, He said.
“She doesn’t even go out anymore. It is rather a huge waste. She is something
“That she is.”, Mitsuhide agreed under his breath, and he could hear others saying similar things
as well. They all sat quietly and watched movie after movie as questions were asked, but
no one made to much noise. They were
acutely aware of the sleeping woman in the tiny room off the one they were in,
each of them making silent plans to get to know her better.
