"Get them on those beds quickly." Jen all but shouted to her team as they brought Julia and Mel into the infirmary. Strong arms lifted and slid both girls onto beds next to one another and no sooner had they finished that task Jen was standing in between both of them.

"Mind explaining how my back up doctor got into this mess Mel? Not to mention you Julia, I thought you girls were smarter than this?" She turned to one of her senior nurses. "Kelly, start an IV of fluids for both of them and have the kitchen send down some hot soup!"

Mel was in 'that' state, half awake half asleep as a little of the effect of hypothermia took hold of her. "We...we were t...trapped Jen...there was no other way.." She was now some six feet away from her 'sister' too far to reach out to her, only with her eyes.

"Trapped? Trapped where?" Jen asked, her tone a little softer now.

"Beneath Radek's labs, t..thr....three levels below."

The last thing she wanted was an inquisition situation, certainly off the two of them she had displayed poorer judgement, given she was the weaker swimmer and was still suffering for it.

She tried to respond to Jen, watching Nurse Kelly move away to complete her orders, instead it turned into a coughing fit after the first few syllables of her protest grasped against her raw throat, ending finally with a groan.

Giulia kept her eyes closed for a few moments, listening to her "sister" explaining about their decision to take to the water.

"There was.... little choice... stay and wait....and for how long? ....sensors in that section are disabled, the w..w..whole.... section is powerless.

Raspy she chipped in her two cents, taking her time but not opening her tired eyes.

As Cameron entered and was given more warmer blankets, he walked over to where the girls were. He overheard and responded gently, "Take it easy, doctors. We'll find them.

He tapped his radio and spoke, "Woolsely, this is Mitchel. We have trapped men beneath Radak's lab several levels below. I request some teams to find them. Quickly."

Jen walked back and forwards for a moment, people in this place were like family, more so those who had been here for quite some time, one tends to form attachments and Jen had a rather fond attachment in a familial way to Ronon. Right now she had her own work to do and that was three new patients. Cam wasn't going anywhere for now, she could see he was almost blue. "Get your wet clothes of Colonel, find ward robe and get into one of those beds please. I don't want a case of pneumonia on my hands....Richard will take care of it."

As she spoke, Kelly and one other nurse started with the IV's on both Julia and Melinda, a message came that hot soups would be down shortly. Mel 'ouched' when the IV line went in, even though she had done it enough times to others, it was always a Nurse's joy to give it back. The young woman who was attending to her gave a wicked grin.

"Three floors below did you say?" Jen asked both of them.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MelindaOlofsson2_zps6b53040b.jpg)

Feeling a little more relaxed and at last getting some warmth, Mel was able to answer without her teeth chattering now. "Yes, and its below the water line. That's how we got out."

A look of shock crossed Jen's normally placid face. "Don't tell me, I already know the answer, you both swam out of there didn't you?"

Mel twisted her head around, a half sloppy grin on her face, which was now directly aimed at her 'sister' "We did." She said bluntly and felt damned good about it. She pulled out her free hand, giving Julia a thumbs up. "We did good." She whispered.

All Jen could do was shake her head, but she knew as well Julia wanted to be on top of this to find out why the section was off the grid. "As soon as you're free from her Julia, which I expect will be a few hours observation, you can find out your answers. I expect Chuck might be able to open that door through his control station don't you?"

"Colonel Mitchell, I'll have Chuck do a full analysis first, he may be able to open that door before we send a team down there. I don't want to take the chance of any more mishaps. If he fails, I will indeed get a team down there, I'm giving him fifteen minutes."

Giulia almost wished for the numbing cold back as her IV was set up, however after the warmth of the blanket and bedding changed her mind.

In the same moment Mel gave her the sloppy grin at Jen's very accurate guess, her head turned as well, returning that guilty smile. Hind sight and sea water told her it was a bed move for her personally to make, but it also was worth it for the bond she had with Mel, with whom she nodded her head in agreement.

"Perhaps, from what I could... see in the darkness the circuitry is completely toast on the inside of the section, outside I .... haven't looked. Could I get a glass of ...water, preferably without salt."

Coughing through her request, Giulia did indeed want to know why that section was a dead zone, curiosity and a need to get her still cold fingers moving drive it. All whole section that was a black spot was a serious danger.

"Here you go Julia." Kelly was quick with the water, even if it was a pale green colour and she knew the 'patient' wasn't that out of it not to notice. "Hydralite, you need it, both of you do after that little adventure." She handed Melinda a glass as well then went back to checking their vital signs, which all things considering were quite good.

{Doctor Jennifer Keller} NPC

"Hmmm, by the looks of that monitor, you both will be out of my hair in an hour or so." Jen interrupted for a moment, she knew right then and there these two wayward girls were at least resilient. That was a good sign.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MelindaOlofsson2_zps6b53040b.jpg)

Taking the glass thankfully, Mel stupidly took a large gulp of the liquid and all but spat it out, making a cross eyed face and 'bleh' with her tongue out. Then promptly swallowed it in the knowledge she needed it. No one ever said good things always had to taste good. "You'll love this Julia." She said sarcastically.

"English please Mel." Jen reprimanded her, as Mel did not even realise she had spoken in Italian again. It was becoming a habit.

"Got it," Cam muttered into the radio before shutting it off.

He wandered off toward the bed and plopped down on it rather blatantly letting off a sigh shivering a bit. He spoke again, "Hey Doc, Im getting out, right? I need to lead the teams in fifteen minutes..."

He just sat there hopeful.

Maybe it was the cold still lingering around, but Giulia was fairly sure that water wasn't that colour, last she checked it was colourless. When Kelly explained, Giulia moved her headl in acknowledgment, sniffed at it then watched Mel glug some of it down.

She might have put it aside at that point but she was parched and her throat craved the relieve of a fluid that didn't contain salt and she wasn't willing to wait for the soup to satisfy both needs.

Sniggering at Mel's comment, Giulia then stared the liquid down, closed her eyes and forced herself to take a good mouthful. It tasted awful, but her mouth was gratefully for it, her stomach too. She made herself drink the rest and pulled the blessedly warm blankets around her.

"Still tastes better than salt water. So any chance of a tablet, I need to get my fingers moving."

"Colonel, didn't you hear what I said? Or wasn't I clear enough." Men, Jen thought, sometimes they were worse than children. She left him with that, or maybe he had water in his ears, so she repeated herself. "Get your wet clothes off please Cam and find a ward robe and get into one of those beds. We don't want to see you with pneumonia."


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

Kelly glanced over her shoulder at Jen and Cam, they reminded her of some people she knew back at the SGC. Well one of them was Cam, the other was Caroline Lam, it was pretty much the same there to. She ignored the conversation, turning her attention to her patients. "Come on girls, both of you are brilliant minds, you know the old saying, the malady is worse than the medicine." She patted Julia on the arm. "I'll duck out to your lab if you like Julia and get your own for you. Mel?"



(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MelindaOlofsson2_zps6b53040b.jpg)

'Brilliant minds?' Neither of them would be here if that were so. She had to withhold a laugh at that thought. "Yes please, our labs are next to each other Kelly...will the soup be long? We're starving." She knew Julia would be, so included her in her statement.

"No, shouldn't be long."

Drinking down the last of the liquid, her face contorted somewhat, Kelly was right it was better to drink it than suffer the cause.

"I would be most grateful."

Her throat felt much improved, less raw from wrenching up salt water. Soup was very eagerly awaited to fill her stomach, the tablet so she could fill her mind over the cup rising of the damage to the city.

With the question of their laptops (tablets) out the way and both girls assured that the soup would arrive shortly, Kelly was in the midst of leaving when Mel called her back. "Kelly is it against rules to have our beds closer?" She asked politely.


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

The tall nurse looked at both of them, she could plainly see there was something of a new bond between the girls, something that took place in their flight from the murky depths that had turned their lives upside down and she wasn't one to come between that. With a look at Jen first, knowing she had heard and getting a quick nod from her, Kelly gave them both a 'yes' look. "I'll have to move the chest of drawers first Melinda." Which she did smartly and she could well have asked Mel at least to hop out of bed while she moved it, but seeing two beefy orderlies nearby she called them over to move the heavy bed for her. "You're set now, but please girls I know you're going to talk and I encourage it, keep it down though okay?" With that she set off for their things with a promise she'd be back quickly.

"She's nice isn't she?" Mel said once Kelly was out of hearing range, although Jennifer could probably hear her. "Once things settle down we need to do some work...I mean after we get out of here. I'm going to take the cappy's back where they came from Julia, they're just too much trouble for us here. And you, we need to figure out how we can get back to that ship safely to."

If Mel hadn't asked, Giulia was going to do it. For a brief moment she had a feeling of apprehension that it was going to be a no, but it passed once the preferred answer was given. While the orderlies obliged the request, she tested her limbs for movement, glad to have the cold eased out of them.

Once Mel was beside her she shuffled a little more as much as she without actually leaving the bed. Listening she nodded her head.

" I agree as endearing as they are they need to be not in the City, however we need a better containment for them in the meantime. As to the ship, that in itself will be tricky, I'll go over what I managed to grab, but it wasn't much. I'm just concerned about how much of the City doesn't have working sensors, let alone doors. "

It was not an experienced she planned to do again in a hurry, but if needed Giulia would go knowing the door was going to shut if Mel was at her side.

Melinda couldn't believe what she was hearing, it was uncanny how much their minds were thinking along the exact same lines. "A part of the reason they like to roam so much and this much I've learned in studying them, they are not territorial animals. They mate for life and are very much like gypsies, going from place to place seeking both shelter and the best food source." That much she did know. "We should make that our first priority..after of course we find out what was wrong down below and yes, after Ronon and that woman have been freed." Then there was that ship. "I do hope Mister Woolsey will see the value in going back there Julia."

"So definitely keeping them locked up is not a viable option, I don't think the cooks will appreciate us if food goes missing, if Gloria and Melman get bored of fish. "

Giulia joked a little, rolling her shoulders back to get some movement back, not to mention itching to get work done.
Rolling her head on to her shoulder, Giulia gave Melinda a look and cocky smile.

"Why, don't you think we aren't convincing enough to get him to send us back?  Can't be letting alien technology fall into the wrong hands now. What I managed to get was only a taste."

Shaking her head in total agreement Melinda had to agree, those two rascals had been nothing but trouble since the day she brought them here, getting into everything, always getting under foot. Not to mention their habit of leg humping. She grinned at her own thought, seeing the look on Cadman's face was pure magic to Mel. Then right when she thought their troubles were over and even in jest Julia hit the nail square on the head. "Oh my god you are so right. We have to get out of here sooner or later. If Atlantis can't retrieve enough from that ship, someone will and I know that rogue element of the Genii had been there." She didn't even want to think about the Wraith.

" They do have that reputation,they also have spies everywhere from the reports I read prior to arriving here. It's a matter of time before they get a team out there."

Giulia spoke a little more seriously, checking her drying hair, it was starting to.go into rat tails, the salt clinging to the strands.

"  I want to make sure we get first dibs and pick it clean."

While Julia was speaking an idea was forming in Melinda's mind, that one was quite simple and would deny others from their quest. "It's not all that far away as far as worlds go Julia. What if we could convince Mister Woolsey that it would be in our interest to take either a Puddle Jumper or one of the 401 Tornado's there, disable the gate and we can stay there as long as we like without any interference. That also has the benefit of keeping us above the high water mark, saving us getting into trouble like before."

She noticed her friend checking her hair, Mel did the same and as well she started to feel a little dry and itchy from the salty water. "We need a shower. We'll have to ask Kelly when she gets back, I'd like to be clean before I do anything further."
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on April 28, 2015, 08:38:25 PM
"A very hot shower, I'm never going to have a bath again."

Giulia agreed, setting her fingers down again. A nice hot bowl of soup and hot shower, two very simple pleasures she was going to really enjoy after her experiences.

" We would need to made sure long range sensors were set up, last thing we want is any extra ships turning out of the blue. One was enough."

She was wondering how Ronon and that woman were doing, wither they were close to being rescued or not.

The eye roll said everything Mel was thinking, she to was going to stay away from anything deeper than a centimeter for some time. "It's happened to often and sometimes I've wondered if the Wraith actually know when we gate to an address. That was why I mentioned going by ship, I think that would be...." She didn't finish as Kelly and her 'escorts' entered.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

Two rather good looking Marines led Kelly back into Med Bay, one each was carrying their laptops and for good reason; Melinda's was a MIL-STD-810, a heavily armored laptop weighing in at almost 3kgs, not that was heavy, just awkward if you're carrying two of them plus the girls accessories, wi-fi modems and external hard drives. Kelly herself had intercepted the cooks and brought the tray with their thick vegetable soup that had a little local Athosian spice, much like a curry flavor from home and some large cuts of crusty bread. She placed the tray on a side table, then the soups and bread on each of the bed trays. "Here you go girls, enjoy. You aren't touching those until you've finished." Her head inclined to the aforementioned laptops which the Marines had placed far out of reach.

"Oh...." Mel's eyes lit up, this was going to be heaven for both of them. "Kelly, will a shower be in order when we're done?"


"I would expect so, you're a little on the nose both of you." She answered grinning merrily.

Pulling herself upright, Giulia thought about arguing with Nurse Kelly and then thought better of it. She had been kind enough to fetch their laptops, which was one strengthen having her tablet computer.

The smell of the soup, made her stomach grumble a complaint about being empty. It hasn't much liked the salt water it had gone before. Picking up her spoon she started devouring the spiced meal. Feeling it settle in the stomah and spread its warmth to those last little bits of her that were still cold.

"No argument from me Kelly." Melinda had already dragged the trolley tray to her the moment the nurse had set it down, spoon fulls of the nourishing soup going down with relish. "God this is good, I can't believe how really good it is Julia,  quite possibly that might because we needed it and I think we might have over done it a little." It didn't take long to empty the bowl, with the thick chunky bread being used as a sponge. When at last Mel had finished it all and swallowed a small juice Kelly had added, she felt more than better than just ten minutes ago.

"Shower?" She said to her friend, taking in Kelly's eyes as her head turned.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

The older woman (by a year or two) rolled her eyes, she knew exactly what was going through the young Dane's mind, those Scandinavians  had no sense of shame at all. She tisked before she spoke. "I'll get some clean clothes for you both, and since there is two shower heads in there..." She jerked her thumb behind her. "...and Jennifer is not far away, I suppose it might help you both to go together, it'll be quicker to get you out of my hair as well."

All Mel could do was grin widely as she slipped her legs over the side of the bed, the floor was cold, but nowhere near as cold as the sea.

Giulia considered answering Mel with a reason the soup tasted so good, but was far to overcome with the need to fill her stomach. She finished up much the same, scraping up every last drop of soup with the bed.

"Oh god yes, that water needs to be almost burning hot."

Of course, she didn't actually mean that. Setting her little table to the side, Giulia got up to her feet. Carefully testing that her legs were willing to take her weight, when she arrived they certainly wouldn't have.

"Why Nurse Kelly, I would think you were trying to get rid off us."

Teasing lightly, she moved over to Mel's bed, to take her arm in her own.

"No, just trying to make my workload less. Now go on, shoo the both of you, you're not that incapacitated." She made a gesture with her hands towards them as you would a pair of naughty kids, only these kids were very much grown. "I'll be back in about ten minutes with your change of clothes." Another trip back to their rooms, she should have thought of that the first time.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MelindaOlofsson2_zps6b53040b.jpg)

After taking it all in, Kelly's instructions and all, something just dawned on Melinda. She was going to be stark naked in front of another person, it didn't matter that it was another woman, it was just a little thing that she had avoided all her life for the most part, barring medical reasons of course. Which for someone from where she originated from might have rather odd, being as open as Danes were; Melinda was not having spent the best part of her life away from her homeland except for those horrible few years as a teen. She bit her lip for a second, then made up her mind. "Damn it, I'm not afraid." She said in her own language, slipped off the bed while trying to keep her face as straight as she could. "After you Julia." She said a little shyly, holding out her hand in the direction of the bathroom.

A half smile on her face, Giulia chuckled at Nurse Kelly shooting them off for the much needed shower.

Returning her attention to Mel, she gave a stretch and headed towards the showers.  Giving her a little odd look about what Mel had said in her native language, since it wasn't she did speak herself.
Nudity wasn't an issue for her, she needed to shower and that was it and it wasn't like Melinda had anything she didn't.

" The sooner we get washed the sooner we can get cracking on working on Mr Woolsey and get back on to the planet, maybe find less troublesome animals."

Inspecting her hair again, she grimaced and let it hang simply again. Hot water and fresh clothes, sweet bliss.

One of the reasons Melinda had a phobia about being seen naked stemmed from her years of training; it had more or less turned her into something less desirable in the eyes of both genders. Even wearing a bikini was a chore for her, the men poked fun at her, letting her know in no uncertain terms that it wasn't right for a young woman to have abs like a male body builder, not to mention her well defined arms; for the women, it was abject horror at seeing her looking like someone who chewed rocks for breakfast, and yet despite all of this Mel had her very feminine side, preferring skirts and heels when ever she went out, rather than jeans and skimpy tops. But she sensed with Julia, something she hadn't experienced with others, someone who wouldn't judge her and so with that firmly in her head, she followed her friend dutifully and once that door was closed, so was her mind to the outside world.

"I was hoping you'd say that." Mel replied as she removed the ward gown, other than that she only had her briefs on and they were soon cast aside. She stepped into the shower, not even noticing how close the shower nozzles were together and soon she was luxuriating in the warm water and soap. She couldn't but help see Julia's earlier distress with her hair either, as both of them had quite long hair she thought why not. "I'll wash your hair if you like." She saw that there was some decent shampoo and conditioner there so it was only a matter for them to both finish washing themselves first.

"The point is.." To relax while washing Mel began to talk. "....I'm damn well intrigued what the origin of that ship is and why did it recognise Ashtah's ship? I mean the ship we found must have been hundreds of years old I'm sure"

Stripped and scrubbing herself down, Giulia revelled in the hot water. Glad to get the salt out of her and off her skin. She would properly wash her hair last as she normally did.

"Thank you for the offer, but you don't have to. My hair is thicker than it looks, surprises my stylist back on Earth every time he does it, but then I don't often remember to go."

She chuckled slightly, making sure she was utterly rid of the salt. Though she must admit her skin had never felt so clean. It certainly made some good body scrub, she noted as she listened on to Melinda, before offering some hypothesis or two.

"It can be be that Ashtah's people having changed that much in the way of technology, you know how the Wraith are for stomping on worlds for getting too advanced. The other reasoning is that Ashtah's ship is one she has salvaged and so maybe as old as our crashed wreck. Certainly I want to know the reasoning for the ship's recognition as well, it may well have useful information to be gleaned."

Strangely, standing there starkers as she had hear one Aussie girl say once, talking as natural as you please with Julia didn't bother Mel as much as she thought it would. In fact she felt quite liberated by it, as if she had been set free from shackles she never realised she had. "Keep watching this space." She said playfully and as she let her own hair out, almost instantly the water was absorbed by her flowing blonde locks, it went from a lovely wavy form, into a mass of ringlets. "I think I really have to stop using that straightening wand." She giggled, but then her face turned a little more serious. "Speaking of Ashtah and Ronon of course, I hope Richard is doing something to get them out of there."

Getting a blob of shampoo, Giulia gave her hair it's first round of washing, making sure she got her whole scalp.

"I never have much patience to straighten my hair, too many late nights in the lab. Unless it's a special occasion I just don't see much in the way of a point in using the time."

Though she didn't mind when she was getting her hair professionally done for it to be straightened or curled, depending on the style she was being given. Usually after awhile she would allow it just descend into a natural state.

"I'm sure he is, he can hardly leave them down there. So after we're discharged do you want to a) go see if we can help then retrieve Melman and Gloria to take them home b) go to work on how to persuade Mr Woolsey to let us return to.the planet or c) Formalise our sisterhood. I say c, a then b."

The washing and bathing was almost done, Mel dolloped a good dose of conditioner in her hair then set it near withing Julia's reach, it felt good to be clean and not feeling as if you were an autumn leaf, dried out from the salt water. "I had this impression once, no idea where it came from, that as a kid growing up in Copenhagen, with this mass of curls I felt oddly out of it. Most of my people have naturally straight or at worst slightly wavy hair; the only women your saw with curls were either foreigners or tarts in the sleazy side of town. So I've been straightening it ever since I was around fifteen." She massaged the conditioner in, then let it set for a bit. "But now, being here, being here with you, I don't feel like that at all..thank you Julia."

There was a quick change of topic, more so back on topic. "That suits me to a tee, I'm sure with Teyla's help we can do it on base, probably in her room. I know once that door is open, Melman and Gloria will go back to my lab on their own once they realise the fish aren't chocolate flavoured." Every afternoon at exactly four PM, Mel gave them both a very small treat.

Giving her hair a second rinse of shampoo just to be sure her hair would be squeaky clean, Giulia listened to Mel about her youthful self's impressions of waves haired women. Shrugging slightly. When young all sort of silly notions can get into your head,she knew she had a few of her own.

"Unless there are some strange fish down there, now chocolate covered seafood, there is my favourite restaurant ever. However it shall seem to be a dream. So from here to Teyla, it seems a good plan."

Shampoo rinsed of a second time she put in the conditioner, make sure she got the ends and then let it soak in while she let the water wash folder the rest of her, enjoying the bliss of hot water.

That comment from Julia had really broken the ice for Mel, she bent over laughing so hard her long locks fell over her face and when she could finally control herself and stand once more, that white gold mane was completely covering her face making her look like a naked parody of Cousin Itt. "My god Julia you have such a wonderful sense of humor." It was lucky as well she was still under the shower, as the effort from the laughter made her feel hot. She rinsed off finally, using a slightly cooler setting and at last grabbed a towel. "She'll be thrilled, we tried to rope Cadman and Jennifer out there, Jen was willing but Cadman thought it would put some kind of hoodoo on her, that or she thought it was some lesbian conspiracy. Either way she declined...come on, lets finish up quickly, I'm sure Jen will release us sooner rather than later."

Giulia just gave a wicked grin back, rinsing out the conditioner now that it had soaked in properly.

She listened to Mel a little more, she was surprised that some were reluctant to go through with a custom that was not there own. Making sure all the conditioner was out, she then stepped out from under the shower, wrapping a towel around her and then another around her hair.

" Hopefully, we are lucky. Me more than you. My throat is still a little sore from wretching up that sea water. That soup settled my stomach some though. We are not doing that again unless we absolutely have to and I'm holding you to your promise on swimming lessons."

"I can't imagine for the life of me why she didn't want to go with it, I mean Jennifer and Laura are good friends..tis a puzzle for me to solve." All that was said under the muffle of a towel wrapped around her head and like Julia, Melinda had another around her torso, but she was not going to step out into the ward looking like that. "I've some lozenges in my office, I used them when I went to Travergo last month, that volcano there was still spewing out dust and it didn't do the throat well. As soon as we're out of here I'll get them for you...." She went to open the door a peek to see if Kelly had returned and the woman was standing right outside with their clothes in a neat bundle.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

"I told you I wouldn't be long, although longer than I thought. I hope you both don't mind as I took the liberty of putting them in a food warmer for a bit, they might smell of pie." She didn't want them to feel cold again and the clothing, the base grey uniform would have been cold to put on immediately.

Mel took the bundle thanking the nurse as she did. "No not at all, pie smell is better than cold. We won't be long Kelly and thank you." She closed the door again, placing the clothes on a stool nearby. "Gee she's nice." Mel plucked off Julia's clothes first as they were on top and handed the warm bundle to her. "I wonder if somewhere in this immense structure if the Ancients ever built a pool? We could use that. Otherwise swimming lessons will have to be in that small lake on the mainland." That was a thought, it was shallow and the water wasn't cold.

Making sure there was no conditioner as left, Giulia listened and the pulled a half smile and breathed out a little laugh. She just managed to catch what Mel was saying

"Mel not all people feel a need to formalize a friendship, nor have endured all that we have endured. "

Giving herself a quick rub down, then covering her decency before towelling down her hair, before wrapping it up and responding gratefully to Mel.

"You save me again or at least my throat. Is that Kelly?"

She watched as Mel took the clothes and passed her warmed bundle, which she pressed to her body before dressing.

"We could always have a look at the plans,it seems we might want to look at it before we go on any further adventures around the city. Certainly I want to know what was down in a that section of the City."

Julia was right about that and Mel could only whole heartedly agree. For some strange reason, call it responsive emotion, she hugged her new found friend, her towel wrapped hair threatening to envelope the both of them. That the two were totally naked seemed irrelevant apart from the second towel covering each of them, that piece of apparel dropped to the floor the moment Mel's arms were around the other. "I am so glad we had that experience you know Julia. I think that above anything else we could do, has bonded us for life....oops." She realised what she had done, quickly recovered her own towel and that of Julia's as her face went scarlet. "Sorry....um yes it was. At least we won't be cold."

She began gathering her own clothes, sitting on another stool to get dressed, it would be great to feel the warmth again. "We'll make that number four on our to do list."

Kelly reacted sharply to the radio, when Woolsey called he meant business. "Girls I have to go for a while, be good and don't misbehave." She called to them through the door. "On my way Mister Woolsey." She radioed back at him.

Post by: MeredithMcKay on May 13, 2015, 05:09:55 AM
She hadn't even got the first item of clothing on before she was drawn into the hug. She didn't do anything more than smile at Mel, not fussed that her towel was at her feet or that they were a fantasy of some of the men stationed in the City.

When Mel did realise, she simply laughed, rolled her eyes and shook her head. Waving her hand in a dismissive gesture, she picked up her own towel and discarded it.

"Dont be, you have got anything different than I have. Unless you want to make a confession before I become your sister."

Joking of course, Giulia fetched the clothing and started to pull them on.  Cocking her head slightly when she heard Kelly inform that she had to go.

"You swim out a hole in the City into the Ocean beyond and you just never are trusted again. Definitely number four."

Feeling more relieved and comfortable at the same time, Mel had to tell herself just how lucky she was to have made a friend as she had in Julia. Was this how it was if they had been sisters? She knew girls back home had experiences both ways, good and bad, Mel was going on the presumption that this was one of those wonderful relationships close siblings had. "No definitely not." She laughed. "Other than being bigger, I'm the same as the day I was born."

Getting dressed herself rather quickly, the blush finally leaving her face, she tentatively opened the door. It was clear and not a male to be seen. Jennifer was at her desk and they had a few hours to kill. "Until we're out of here, we can do all we can on our laptops, Kelly was good enough to bring our wi-fi modems for us, so linking into the data base of the cities computers should make our work easier."

"Remind me to buy Kelly her favourite chocolate when we go.on leave to Earth."

Giulia smiled as she followed Mel out into the main infirmary, before heading back to the assigned bed. Most of everything had been set up for them, she was glad. Setting her and Mel up on the equipment was not probably not an acceptable thing to be doing after recovering from near drowning.

Sitting crossed legged on the bed, she turned on and inputted her password.

"So where to begin? "

As fortune would have it, the floor of the Atlantis infirmary wasn't cold, whether the Ancients had made it that way or not didn't matter, it was simply nice to walk on something that looked like linoleum, but wasn't freezing your toes off. So for Mel and Julia, bare foot was an easy thing to do, and as Mel was used to standing while she worked, she brought her laptop over to Julia's bed on the end so she could lean comfortably. "That gives me an idea, I saw several tins of cocoa in the kitchens the other day and I know just how to make chocolate if we have the right stuff. Maybe a cake?" Her mind was spinning with ideas on that topic. "You mentioned earlier city sensors, I think we should start there. I recall seeing a city wide mapping thing Rodney was working on a while ago, it's about 75% complete but that should be a good start don't you think?"

"Now that sounds a plan, but we would have to help her eat this cake."

Giulia responded with a faint smile playing across her face, glancing over at Mel,while she brought up the programme, she spoke off.

"I try to avoid Dr McKay, he doesn't know when to shut his mouth. Though neither do I, which is another reason why I avoid him."

With the programme up on her screen, she tapped into the sensors by Zelenka's lab then started working out their path from there till she got to the dead zone.

"Complete blind spot, no sensors at all are functioning in that section we were in.

"You've not seen Danish cakes have you. Phht, the French think they own cake making, I will have to get La Chef's permission to use his kitchen, but I am not boasting Julia, I can make a Black Forest cake that will make you cry for more. Its perhaps the one good thing I can say I've managed to accomplish in my life without making a mess of it." Mel was proud of that achievement and it was something she took quite seriously, if she could manage to cook anything else at all, it would pale against her grandmother's recipe's that Mel held so dear. "Honestly sister, I don't trust a man who constantly refers to women's legs as if we all don't have them."

She was now logged into her own computer, getting the same feedback as Julia. Back and forth she scanned trying to break the deadlock. Then a strange thought occurred to her. "When they discovered Janus's laboratory, it was by total accident, it to was seemingly a black spot on our scans, do you suppose there are some things even the Alterans hid from each other? Like his lab, private spaces?"

The sound of a chocolate cake was tantalizing Giulia taste buds, which was still suffering the taste of the salt water. The soup had helped to shift it, but my memory was quite strong.

"Ah do not start, Italy and France share a border and we are both famous for our cooking. They may know their sweet streets, but we know how to cook a family meal. However Black Forest cake is the queen of all foods."

There was nothing like sitting at the dining table, with her family and eating a good Italian meal. Though she could drool over the cake idea, it was her favourite kind.

"If you object to his referral of legs, don't get him started on other fields of science."

Giulia warned, looking at the area of the City effected by this lack of sensors and power. She thought back to when she had tried to manually disengage the doors, it had been hard to see in, but the circuitry was damaged, but was it deliberate.

"Black Research... perhaps it was the off the grid research labs. Not the sort of things you want everyone to know about, so you cut if the sensors and cameras so no one can look in. It seems to well defined an area.There might be a separate system, do you not think?"

She looked over to Mel, wanting her opinion.

<<From Base Commander's Office"

Stepping into the infirmary, Tama gazed around with her sapphire blue eyes and found it almost as she expected to see it. She glanced to see the two women working on the bed, but didn't maintain any sort of gaze. Rather she waited on Kelly to instruct her on what she was to do.

The youth had remained quiet the whole way down, clutching her little ragged bundle and feeling the cool floor under her bare feet. Nothing about this city seemed unfamiliar, but yet Tama knew that it was. She had never left her home city, let alone her home world, yet she knew this place.

It had felt so much more comfortable to have her bracer off, rather than pressing at her implant. One that it was back on, she pitched to relieve the other wrist, but she wasn't comfortable to have them on display. She understood that it was not common in any species.

Things were made so much easier by Tama's apparent familiarity with Atlantis, the time to get back to the infirmary was almost as quick as it took Kelly to run to Woolsey's office in the first place. The moment the two of them stepped foot within the large room, Kelly's eyes were on the lookout for Jennifer, she was nowhere to be seen. "Girls, this is Tama, she's a guest here with us. Could you make her feel at home while I go and look for Doctor Keller." She sort of nudged Tama forward just a little.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/MelindaOlofsson2_zps6b53040b.jpg)

There was work and there was of course pleasure; right now both Julia and Mel were somewhere in between with what they were doing neither work asked for or compulsory, just something they had taken on themselves. So when Kelly brought in the new arrival, since Mel was already on her feet, she was the first to greet the newcomer. She went straight over to her, maybe the girl was younger, it was hard to tell. "Hello, I'm Melinda and my friend over there is Julia. I guess you should come and sit by us, Doctor Keller could be some time." All this being said with Mel's accent kept in check as much as she could, she did this by speaking a little more slowly just to make sure.

Giulia cast her eyes over the young woman, but unlike Mel she didn't go over straight away. Moving the laptop of her lap and making sure she didn't knock it over, she came over a moment later.  Not saying anything, she took a good look of the young woman standing in front of them.

The eyes certainly stood out, never had Giulia had seen such an intensity, she was almost sure they would act like cats eyes, the colour was so iridescent. Her clothes suggested she'd been travelling hard and the bundle me by she had been travelling light. The bare feet was odd, but Giulia was not about to pass comment. Rather she smiled and offered her hand to youth when Mel introduced her.

Hello, Mel is right, you should come sit with us, standing around is no fun. You know, since we were brought in Mel and me have had no well wishers or anyone come to check on us, besides Dr Keller and Nurse Kelly. Not that we are put out by it, every one has there jobs to do. So that means you are our first visitor, even if you don't know us, so you must come sit with us."

Tama Akimoto


The nudge to her a little unnerving, she was starting to get what Mr Woolsey ment about them being a more physical people. She wasn't sure what to make of the two women being introduced to her now, she was mid bow when the hand was offered. Instinct made her straighten up and taking it in her hand, giving it a shake, the movement was odd and not to her. Listening to them both talk was odd, neither sounded the same. She could tell that Melinda was taking care with her speech.

I guess I have little choice than to join you, it is a pleasure to meet you both. Though I am sorry to hear that is ill health that brings you here."

Taking a cue from Julia, Mel gently took Tama's other hand and held it for a moment; she had been practicing quite a lot lately, the art of womanly handshakes, since most of her young life was in the company of and competing with males. Even Cam told her a little while back that many won't appreciate her bone crushing grip, even some of the men. "More officially I am Doctor Melinda Olofsson, my friend is also a doctor, but neither of us are of the human study variety. Giulia Montale here is in engineering, my field of science is veterinary medicine." She wondered if either subjects resonated with Tama. "I must add that we are here more as punishment than anything else. We were rather stupid in our actions a little while ago." All that said with only a slight accented hint of her origins. It must have been confusing for the young woman, two others there so disparate in their speech yet from the same world.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary

Tama Akimoto

Returning the hand gesture, Tama then bowed formally as was the custom of her mind or at least the kind she had been raised with. She wasn't sure what "her kind" was given that she was of mixed species.

Hearing their formal titles and fields of study, certainly got Tama's attention, particularly Giulia. Tama's face lit up at the sound of engineering, she had always been transfixed with it and had been glad of what minor engineering she had been permitted to do.

"My formal title is Lady Tama of clan Akimoto, third rank and... "

She faltered,remembering what Mr Woolsey had said in regards to titles, besides she resented her most recent of titles and the changes it had and (should she fall back into her people's hands)would bring her.

"Engineering is a subject that fascinates me most, I was not permitted pets so I built what I could. No one could make much head nor tail of any of what I did, nor was I ever taught. What do you mean stupidity your actions?"

Certainly couldn't be worse than going on the run from trained hunters and killers.


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/JuliaMontale-3_zps103d2f85.jpg)

"I was more stupid than Mel, she at least is a stronger swimmer than me. Long story short, we got stuck and had to swim our way out into the Ocean. I nearly drowned if Mel hadn't saved me. Though I don't think I've said thank you."

She didn't feel she needed to say it, a look would be enough to say it all, but there was something in saying things around.

"Thank you Mel. Now what are we going to do, while we wait?"

As Mel listened, she was now sitting on a chair beside Julia's bed, her chin resting on her hands; she thought of the things Tama had just told them. "That's Japanese. Wow, the Universe is much smaller than I thought." She said to herself, musing on the title the girl had given them. Mel had been fascinated in medieval Asian culture since she was a little girl, watching all those old black and white Shintaro DVD's her father had. She wondered how on Earth did something so similar get transplanted all the way out here? The Ancients maybe? That could be the only answer. She knew a few phrases in Japanese and was curious just how far the connection went with Tama. She'd save that for a little later.

"And....." Mel said curiously, he face a beaming rare smile. "My Mother is a distant relative of the Queen of my country, quite distant I believe. She does though have her own title, though I've never ever heard her either use it, nor anyone else. I think it goes back to before the World War we had on our planet and there is some conjecture that mother's family were from the nation that started the war, hence I suppose her families reluctance to acknowledge what might be a dark past."

She was more than happy though for Julia to have someone take an interest in what she did, for Mel, her work was something of a oddity out here and she could do less with people prying into what she did. When Tama said she had made her pets, that made Mel smile. There was a soldier on the base who made those old blacksmiths ring puzzles which fascinated her, not that she could ever work them out. "We do a lot of stupid things here, but not all of them get us into trouble." Well she did, not so much Julia anyway.

"You did what you thought was right Julia, no one can blame you for that and you know what? I'd do it all over if I had to."  She leaned over, coming of her chair and hugged her new found sister, whispering to her. "Nothing to thank me for." Jennifer couldn't be far away, she was thinking that perhaps they could show Tama something of Earth on their laptops. Mel for one had literally thousands of photos and videos from her travels. "I know it sounds a little boring, a bit like watching someones home movies, but Tama would you like to see some of our world?"

Post by: MeredithMcKay on May 22, 2015, 06:45:21 AM
Melanie seemed to talk a lot of things that made little sense to her, but a moment's though on the context and some of it made sense. She had no idea about "Japanese" though. She understood the context of a Queen being different to the Queen of a Wraith hive.

All women of my kind have titles, even it I'd just to determine social standing. My clan name, ranking and a few other factors can place me higher or lower than others within my society. Our past cannot be unwritten, do says the Goddess, we can only pretend and hide from it. It is customary, when great shame is brought on someone, that their name will not be added to the Temple wall of their clan."

She doubted now hers would ever go now, running away and disobeying the ruling.of her Elders was a terrible sin. She was distracted from this saddening thought at the prospect at seeing pictures of her Pai's world. A smile spread across her face, her small bundle set aside on the end of Giulia's bed.

Slipping herself back down on to the edge of her assigned bed, Giulia smiled at Mel. Feeling that strong bond between them and the comfort it brought. There was certainly going to a lot more stupid things for them.to do in future and Mel was the only one she wanted to do them with.

 She wasn't sure about this youth, she could't be human, not with those eyes anyway. However it was good to.have someone who had an interest, so few women did show such interests at least on Earth. Perhaps it was different where this Tama came from.

"Well come on Mel, break out the album and show the wonders of Earth, Just no oceans, at least not for a while. "

Definitely a connection there, most definitely Mel thought and she knew exactly what she would show the young woman. She was though starting to suspect that wherever this girl came from, she may have been artificially aged, she seemed to be exuberant in her youthfulness, perhaps to much so; yet physically she appeared not much younger than Julia and herself. "Sometimes Tama, a title can open doors for you. At other times as many have found on our world it can be a millstone around your neck."

She booted up her Windows media player and began looking for something exact, something as a starter and she knew exactly what. "There'll be a little water Juila." She joked. "Tama this is a country in our world we call Japan, I thought we'd start there."

Tama Akimoto

Oh boy did Tama understand that Titles could be millstone, not that she knew what it was but she understood the context. Her latest bestowed title had heavy implications that as yet had not been fully explained to her but she had suspicions. It would help to know how much of her had been changed, how much of her genetics had been planned.

Tama watched the two videos on this country of Japan, there were minor similarities in the architecture to the city where the Grand High Temple resided.

"They build their homes so close to the sea level? Do they not have sufficient mountains to build into? What is with the lights? I have seen the City from the Temple and even if does not light up like this. Why do they have their catacombs so exposed? Do they prefer their dead to reside with the living? "

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/JuliaMontale-3_zps103d2f85.jpg)

Giulia tried her best not to sniggering at the girl's question, it was rather difficult but she just managed to stifle it just enough.

"With So many volcanos, building into mountain s might not be the wisest idea in Japan. The dead don't reside with the living, Japan hasn't the room to bury the dead. The two styles of architecture are ancient architecture and modern architecture. The modern architecture involves a lot of lighting, cities don't sleep."

In between a few giggles and an approving high five from Melinda to Julia, things were going quite well with Tama's 'education' of life on Earth. Mel showed a little more of their world, going on a virtual round the globe tour with places such as the ancient wonders of the middle east, the footsteps of the worlds civilisation in Greece and Julia's native Italy, all the way through Europe, the far northlands of Mel's own home; across to America and the huge metropolis's there, Australia and the rugged outback and she ended the little show with a quick tour of Africa, pointing out some of Earth's diverse wildlife and finally ending with China and the Far East. The last image being the Great Wall. As she closed, Mel was looking quite happy with herself, more so because it didn't make her homesick, more it made her proud to be a citizen of Earth. "So you can see Tama, we're quite a very diverse race, not so old in the grand scheme of the Universe, but I think we've done well and now reaching out for the stars."

As she spoke those last words, Mel heard Jennifer somewhere in corridor; she seemed to be speaking with someone rather heatedly and all Mel could do was roll her eyes, the poor woman had been having a few outs lately. She leaned a little forward and spoke quietly. "Is there anything of special interest you would like to know about us?" She meant humans of Earth in particular.

Tama Akimoto

Giulia watched as Tama's eyes took in all the imAges, pointing out parts of her home land with pride. She giggled when they saw the leaning tower of Pisa and Tama's head tilted to correct the angle. Tama hid her eyes at the Grecian status, scandalized by their nude forms.

The colder mountainous climes were more like her homeworld, Tama mentioned when she observed them. She marvelled at the vast citues, the Grand scale of the buildings were astonishing to her, it pleased Giulia to watch her face.

Tama didn't respond to Melinda in regards to the diversity of the human race, she was just boggled by it.

"I think Mel, we've over done it."


She gently touched the youth on the shoulder, Tama then reacted to what Mel asked. Thought with her tilted with one side before looking Mel plainly in the face.

"I really just wish to know who my Pai is, I wish to understand if he did not want me because as a hybrid of our two species I am inferior. Hybrids aren't generally acceptable on my world, so there was never any texts for me to read about them. You said you understand medicine, though I do not know the term veterinary, I presume from the context you mean animal medicine. Does your world have hybrids?

It looked like between Julia and Mel they had done a marvelous sales pitch for Earth; heaven's the two of them could most likely do a number on the Wraith and dazzle them with their charm, that or totally bewilder them into apoplexy. If that didn't work they could simply beat them into submission with their geek speak. Mel looked happier to, than she had for days, at least her smile was natural and not forced; Tama's question was relevant to and something she could answer. "Yes we do Tama in a matter of speaking. It is quite a simple matter to cross breed between like species, but then when you are talking about those that are not of the same genus that is another matter again. But humans have been doing it for some time now, interfering with natural selection. We have bred plants that take genes from unlike species to make a new one. With animals its not so easy, but it has been done." She was thinking of how foxes and dogs have been interbred, and the same with Tigers and Lions. All of those, though from the same original stock, were far apart as far as their DNA were concerned.

Tama Akimoto

The Pegasus galaxy was in deep trouble now that Giulia and Mel were being released, especially once they got back on that planet. There were too many goodies for Giulia to pick apart and reassemble, plenty for Mel to collect and study.

It was interesting watching Tama think, she would constantly tilt her head and consider what was being told to her before bringing her next question. Giulia could tell that she wanted to ask much more than she was, but there was a touch of reservation in doing so.

"Are there other human hybrids like me? Are these animal hybrids inferior to their parent species? "

Tama pressed Mel for more answers, as far as she knew she was the only one of her Oma's species to be made a hybrid, she all to clearly remembered how she was treated by her cousin for being less.

Now that was indeed a curly one to answer and Mel knew all too well that what she was about to say would either confuse Tama (and possibly Julia as well) or amaze her. "Funny you should ask that. In a word, no, not technically hybrids as you would think of them. But there are human species not related to Earth that are in a way a blend of two races. But before I get to that, I can name several humans from our world who have been altered or infused if you will with the gene codes of other races."

She took a deep breath, as she was going on her knowledge from reading several large volumes of SGC medical files. "There was a race, the race that built this city in fact, we call them the Ancients. Some of our people have their gene naturally occurring and some have been enhanced by contact with them." Three names came to mind, Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson and Catherine Hughes. "Then, as I hinted at, in our galaxy there is a race we call the Goa'uld. They are a parasite race and have made humans their principle host. So in a way, they to are hybrids as well." She looked at Julia, there were files and recordings they could access, but Mel was unsure if they should do so, the Goa'uld were quite scary even if they did look human.

 Giulia gave Mel a look, knowing what passed through her head, it said plainly no. They didn't know much about her other than she was a guest. Showing files were not going to go down well with higher ups, even if the contents were not applicable to this galaxy. It wasn't appropriate to do so.

"Hybrids can be a loose term if you want it to be, at least we've found in our exploration."


Tama Akimoto

The same tilt of the head as the youth considered the information she was given, murmuring to herself knowledge that she knew she had not learned for herself.


"Snakes with glowing eyes..."

Her lips pursed together a moment, squeezing into a thin line as she wondered a little more.

"So human Hybrids have not been weaker but stronger because of the hybridization? I wonder what strengthens I have compared to a normal human? My Oma's people...well at least my cousin made a very brutal point that I was weaker."

Tama gently touched her jaw line, feeling the second jaw lightly with her fingers, feeling the little bump from her heeled fractures.

Shaking away her the negative memory, Tama then smiled at Giulia and Mel, feeling a little better about herself. She didn't understand totally what she was, or what purpose was created for, all her information was just fragmented pieces.

"Being part human sounds better now, or maybe I.should think of myself as part Shade? What do you think?

"Let me put it this way Tama. As you saw of Earth, there are many races or as you might see it, sub branches of the one genus. In our world, many of them interbreed and create what was once commonly known as half castes. Although I might add the term is seen as rather derogatory these days." Mel could hear footsteps, Jennifer was coming, so she hurried her little speech along some. "So this becomes a melting pot of faces and in the end, those people, the end result of those intermingling races find they need to call themselves one thing or the other. Generally there is some pride in calling oneself for example Chinese, even though you may only have a quarter of that blood in your veins. Does that make sense to you?" She just managed to finish when the good Doctor finally returned.

{Doctor Jennifer Keller} NPC

The look on Jen's face was a mix of annoyance and amusement. Annoyance because she had to tell someone for the umpteenth time they could only take so much tylonel in a day. Amusement because she found the scene in her ward rather funny. But she was busy and needed to take care of business to. "Tama? I'm doctor Keller, how are you?" She said in her everyday pleasantness.

Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary

Tama Akimoto

The black haired head tilted for a moment, then she nodded slowly. Tama understood the point Mel was making. Yes she was a hybrid,but she largely identified as being a Shade, because she been raised as one, but in thinking that she had seen herself as being inferior to her age mates (though some times she could recall when she had the upper hand because she was physically younger than her age mates). Maybe if she thought of herself as human, she wouldn't think herself as being inferior.the corner of her mouth curled upwards as her ego inflated at the idea of being better than a normal human.

Her thought's of superiority stepped into the back ground when Dr Keller arrived and introduced herself. Tama got up from the bed and bowed from her waist out of good manners, before responding.

" It is a pleasure to meet you Dr Keller. As good as any hunted person can be I think anyway. Melanie and Julia were showing me pictures of Earth and explaining hybrids to me."

Straightened again, her smile still on, but she felt nervous now. The last doctors she had felt with had been at the centre of the conspiracy of the changes hidden under her armlets.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/JuliaMontale-3_zps103d2f85.jpg)

"I promise we were not warping her young mind, well I know I was but I'm not sure about Mel here. So we got to wait any longer before you give us our marching orders?"

Giulia joked, though she wouldn't mind getting out she felt better than she had when she arrived, the soup and shower had helped. If not she wouldn't mind another soulful while she and Mel worked on the mystery of the sensor void.

"Moi?" Mel said so innocently. Truth be told she had in mind about half way through their little lessons of showing Tama the sights of Earth to go a little deeper and delve into some of the seedier parts of Earth, but in hindsight she was thankful they didn't go down that road, happy in knowing what they did show her was some of the best. "Yes that Jen, I'm sure we've recovered enough..." Before she could continue, Jennifer held up a slim finger for silence.


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/avatars/avatars%20two/stargate_avatar120_1344.jpg)

"Were they now?" Jen for the moment had her arms folded in one of her typical poses, one she had developed a while ago that could convey that image of 'I can take you down several pegs if I wish', or one that made people feel relaxed, that was how she wanted to show herself now as the last five minutes vanished from her mind. "From these two Tama I'd be surprised if they didn't have you going around in circles wondering what you had walked into. Don't get me wrong, they're both lovely girls, if a bit flighty."

She unfolded her arms placing them by her side. "Girls, if you promise me no more stupid antics, you can go." She told them, a look from her eyes alone giving them the impression she knew everything.

"We can? Oh wow, great thank you Jen. Tama, we'll catch you soon. Don't be afraid any more okay, we're all here to look after you." Mel was already shutting her laptop down, excited at the thought of getting back to work. "Jen, you have my word.." She gave Julia a half wink.

"The sooner you're both out of my hair, the sooner I can do Tama's medical, then we'll see what happens next okay?"

"Well we won't keep you back we promise no stupid antics, though what we did wasn't stupid. Just ill advised, at least on my part, I'm the one nearly drowned. I also resent the flighty remark, now we'll keep ourselves out if you hair till we get kinks in our neck keeping our heads down."

Giulia countered not willing to admit that it was stupid, no way was she going down as flighty. Though she kept her tone light and jokey,  not wanting to rile Jennifer up, she had heard her before she had joined them.

Closing her laptop, she slid off her bed and started gathering her things together.

"Your lab or mine Mel?"

Tama Akimoto

Did all humans talk to each other like this, in such a cheeky manner? Or was this what human females were like? Her mouth twitched and her brow furrowed, as she tried to understand this unfamiliar interaction.

"Huh?"

It was a quiet sound, to herself mostly though she wasn't aware she made it really.

"I shall try not be afraid."

But how could she not be, she didn't know the extent of the changes that had been made to her, all seven kinds of paranoia was itching in the back of her head. Too many of them squeezed into the little box of fears in her head.

The remark wasn't lost on Mel either. "Flighty indeed." She murmured. Well she could imagine there were moments, more so that of the absent minded scientist kind, Mel had to admit she was prone to that sometimes. If she was working on something, that would consume her thoughts for days, to the point when she spoke quite often she made little sense to others. But flighty? No, she put that down into the category of some Bimboesque type of girl; those type never made any sense at any time at all. She looked at Julia first, then Jen and finally Tama, grabbing her laptop then placing it under her arm, letting her free hands carry the accessories. "Jen, I'm going on record as saying you need to practice your sarcasm a lot more." With that she moved to the doorway giving a semi offended look just for the fun of it. "Your room Julia, mines like a junkyard even on a good day. See you soon Tama."

All Jennifer could do was shake her head, Melinda was right; she needed to pay more attention to Rodney as far as her witticisms go. "Right, I'll check up on you both later just as a precaution mind." She then gave her full attention to Tama. "We'll move into my office Tama, I do have to ask you don't have any predisposed social or cultural phobias about being undressed in front of others do you?"

Making sure she wasn't about to drop anything on her toes, Giulia didn't say anything more about the comment, rather she just blew a lock of her hair and moved away from the bed.

"We'll see you later then, we'll stay away from water.Tama take carw, we'llsee you later."

<<to Giulia's Lab>>
Tama Akimoto

Tama bowed from her waist as the two women took their leave.

Goddess bless you and keep you.

She then picked up her small bundle of possessions, glad to know that she wouldn't be in a public space, largely because she wanted to restrict who saw under her bracers. She was still trying to come to terms with them herself.

"I don't have issue with it, just I would not like any males present. I grew up in an all female community. You will tell me if there is anything odd?
 or of concern? I am 3, but I know look only 2, but I've had too many people not tell me about myself. Keep secrets and plans about my future. Also, there  is one thing about me... I don't want anyone to know. Mr Woolsey knows and I wish to keep those that know limited. "

The young woman explained, but her head never raised up, her eyes fixed down while her free hand rested on the opposite bracers, nervously rubbing it. She hadn't really thought much about how her age maybe odd.

Mel lingered at the door for a moment, real and genuine concern for their very new found friend had touched her heart. She could though see that Tama was in good hands. With a lightened spirit their day had turned out rather well, she followed Julia out into the hallways.

Guiding the youngster into her own private office, Jen waited until the girl was well inside before closing the door and locking it. Not something she would normally do, but knowing and respecting peoples culture was important to both her and the Atlantis Mission. "I promise you, no one will bother us Tama, the door is locked." The was a bed in the office, typical of any doctors private rooms, a large desk, computer and the usual medical paraphernalia, with the added skeletal molds and photos. "You know this is going rather interesting for both of us. I have read about advanced aging technology used in other races, but I've never had the opportunity to deal with it first hand. So before we get started, can I ask did your people put in place a time that your growth would curve out to a stop point, an age where you would then advance normally?" It was a curious thing to her, how was that controlled? Hormones or in the genome sequence?
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 03, 2015, 08:57:40 AM
Padding after Dr Keller into her office, Tama gazed around the room, watching as the door was closed behind them both and secured against any potential intruders. She was certainly most grateful that her privacy would be given, she didn't have it living in the Temple.

Her head tilted and her brow furrowed listened to Dr Keller's question, her bundle clutched in her gabds. It confused her and just brought a little of that stab of betrayal to think about any of the manipulations that may have been bestowed on her person.

"I don't know about what was done to me other than what is physically visible. I know though while you think me to be physically old for my age, I am physically young for my age on my home world. It wasn't our original home world, so we are taught,it's far less harsh. From my history lessons, our true home world was a very harsh place to be, so growing up was a necessity... both mentally and physically. The trade off is a shorter life span. Though I suppose mine might be longer with my mixed heritage, going by that I am aging slower. "

The more she thought about being part human, having had her conversation with Mel, she was now thinking about the upside. Still she dreaded and craved to know the extent of what has been done to her.

"Hmmm, I'm getting the impression Tama that your world, or the race that created you didn't have the best intentions in mind when you were created." To Jen, it sounded like something the Wraith or even the Ancients would do; create a tool or even a weapon from a living being just so they could. It didn't make it any easier for Jen either, knowing she had to take into account what might be a completely different physiology even if Tama appeared human.


"Lets hope that you are aging normally now, I'd hate to think that at some point not too far away I'd be looking after an old grandmother." She did smile, hoping to instil a little humor into things. "Very well then, you can remove all your garments except your underwear and I'll try and get this done as quickly as possible." Now there was a question, did she even have underwear under all those lovely robes?
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 04, 2015, 07:31:57 AM
A long mournful look came from Tama's eyes, before dipping down respectfully and sighing.

" The good or ill intentions were not ever revealed to me, along with pretty much most of everything wasn't revealed to me. They just gave me a title...they are big on titles."

She rolled her eyes on this end statement,it had been exasperating to know who was who when a name was not enough. Tama smiled at Dr Keller's joke, shaking her head in agreement. She replied as she set her little bundle aside and undid her sash for her robe.

Well I don't think you need worry, I'm still considered a child on my home world, I'm not an full adult till I'm 6, when I turn 4 I would have been considered a young adult, but still not old enough to be free of the Temple's guardianship. "

She folded her few garments, leaving only the flap of fabric around her waist preserving her dignity, alongside bindings around her bust, the equivalent of underwear. All restless left was her bracers, which she began to unlace with care. The implants hurt with the relief to be free from being compressed into her skin, setting each one aside with her clothes. Tama's eyes kept on floor, not really wanting look at her forearms, her face going red.

" How do they help your impression of my people's intentions for me. "

Jennifer waited patiently by her desk, she also made sure that Tama was comfortable in undressing by not even glancing at the girl until she was done, and of course ended her conversation. That and the rustling of garments told Jen she was ready; but for the base Doctor, she wasn't prepared for what she saw when at last she did look at Tama.

"My god!" She exclaimed in shock, taking the youngster gently by the head, her own not 6 inches away. "Honey what did they....what are those things?" The immediate medical examination was forgotten for the moment.

Reluctantly Tama lifted her eyes for a moment to look at Jennifer, before looking down again.

"I didn't stay long enough to find out the details."

She murmured quietly, not that she regretted leaving as soon as possible, who knew how tight security would have gotten if they had realised she was going to runaway. She hadn't spent much time looking at them since she had given up trying to take them out herself, there was some sign of her attempts.

" I try not to look at them... I keep the covered as much as possible by a he bracers. Draws too much attention to keep them visible, but it's uncomfortable to keep the covered, I did what I could to keep it clean when they were still healing. All I know was that I was to be The Honourable Lady Protector."

Carefully flexing her fingers, feeling the relief of having them free, but it still felt strange to have these implants in her in her.

You'd be forgiven for staring, these kind of things were simply not done to people, not in a fair and just world anyway. But Jen had realised long ago that the world was neither fair nor just in any galaxy. "Hun, I'm going to do what we call a CAT scan, its totally harmless but it will give me and you an idea on what exactly those things are and possibly what use they are. We can do the rest of the medical after." She then explained in detail what the CT scan was and how it worked. Jen then slipped outside and picked up a clean blue ward gown and handed it over to Tama. "Slip this on and we'll get this out of the way quickly okay?" The terminology Tama gave her was starting to make Jennifer highly suspicious and she hoped dearly that what the young girl was, would not be a hazard to Atlantis in any way.

Listening to Jennifer,Tama found that she had little need to hear it save to ease her anxiety over going through this. Like everything since arriving, just about everything was strange and familiar in the same moment, the principles of a CAT was clear to her and she even could picture how it might be constructed. 

Her dark haired head nodded mutely to show she understood, she wanted to know as much as could about herself and what had been done to her.

Watching Jennifer slip out and back again into the room, her sapphire eyes avoided looking at her wrists in the meantime, she then inspected the gown before dressing. They felt strange to her, the ties were awkward for her but instinct made sure she put them on the correct way.

She turned to pick up her bracers to recover her wrists before leaving the room, she was too self conscious of the implants to go anywhere without them covered.

"I am okay to leave my bundle here?"

"Yes please do Tama." Jen told her in that moment she knew the girl was ready for this next step. For her part, Jen was hoping these things were nothing to worry about but somehow in the back of her mind she knew she was only fooling herself. Alien races don't do things like this just for the fun of it she's found over time.

It took her only but a few moments to get Tama into the separated room where the X-Ray machines were located, which included both the CT scan and a large MRI machine. A little while after that Jen had her on the table of the CT machine for the examination. "Try to relax." She said, knowing that was quite a stupid statement to make, Jennifer knew just how it could be, being in a strange place and getting your entire body looked at by a strange machine and by even stranger people. Yet it was over fairly quickly, Jen having taken all the images she needed to. "We're done now Tama, you can get up and how about you come with me into the viewing room and we can go through the scans together? You might understand some of what is shown more than I perhaps?"

Keeping the braces loose, so she wouldn't have to fiddle around too much with them with them moving rooms, Tama followed through tugging at the hem subconsciously.

Once through she pulled the covers off her arms and did exactly as she was told, keeping silent for now because she felt she said enough. Her eyes instinctively closed as she went through the scan, in her head praying to her Goddess simply for the comfort it gave her.

Once it was done, Tama stood up and retrieved her bracers before solemnly coming through to the room. Her eyes remained lowered till she saw the scans and tilted her head.

"I never got to look at any of the scans before. I'm better with mechanisms rather than biology...  though I have to admit this is really amazing."

The face of the youth looked alive as her sapphire blue eyes inspected the images, taking them in.

"You can really see my inner jaw can you? I mean it looks much brighter, but that is my inner jaw... I can see the fractures from when I broke it. This is far better than looking at the sketches in my text books. "

A little smile twitched at the corner of her mouth, glad to be involved. Her fingers traced the natural looking formations, though they shouldn't have shown up on a ct scan.

"Interesting Tama, I would have to ask why they felt it necessary to break your jaw? Was this some kind of medieval initiation you had to go through?" Jen had heard of worse, young boys in the Pacific islands somewhere who had their legs broken more often than not leaping off a high tower with nothing more than a vine tied around their legs. She shuddered just thinking about it. Yet what she was more intrigued with was what she saw as she went through Tama's scans, most importantly those of her forearms and wrists. Her eyes were wide open, there was no mistaking what she saw, and what she couldn't see either; it looked as if some parts of those devices were shielded, but what she did see was rather frightening. "Neural transmitters, Tama do you know what those are?" She said quite blankly wishing Radek were here with her.

Shaking her head lightly, then rolling her eyes as she thought back to the incident that had lead to her breaking her jaw. One of the many reasons she was glad not be back on her home world.

My cousin didn't have much in the way of love for me, we were sparring but she choose not to hold back and backed me in a corner.I don't remember much else but I'm told I unhinger my jaw and the inner jaw clamped on her war fan and wouldn't let go, broke my jaw. I gave as good as I got."

There was a little warriors pride, lifting her head a little more and a little some. Her cousin had gotten banish for the attack, Tama had though it was because her cousin had disgraced the sanctity of the training area, perhaps it was because of her worth. A darker though brought her head tilting downward again, her sapphire eyes glancing towards Dr Keller.

"So no it wasn't a tradition... it's a sin to harm a child."

Her voice flattened darkly with the last statement, seeing what had been done then dreaming in a control breath. Then took to looking closely at each piece, there was no difference between the two wrists.

"From what I can see they are as you say, there are the components to convert data input into these wires. They are oddly shaped, branching out like that seems natural but they can't be? I can't believe I wish I had paid more attention to my lessons. It would be good to if we could see better details... but I can understand the basic purpose of it, I like it less than I did when I just saw the surface of it and even then I hated them. "

She looked down at her wrists, a finger raised up to touch the flat metal and felt the edge of the inner circle, just room enough to plug something inside. Her eyes studying it carefully before looking again at the scans.

"It is the gravest of sins to harm a child... "

Well Jennifer could certainly imagine that scenario in her life, she had one or two cousins that if wasn't for the disparity of age she would have easily decked them with a broken jaw. Of course as a thirteen year old baby sitter those thought were bound to occur. In a weird way, she found it rather amusing, although the consequences weren't, a broken jaw is possibly one of the worst bones in your body to break; as far as the healing phase goes. "Well." she said. "I'm glad at least you came out of that one alright. It sounds as if in your very short life experience you've packed in quite a lot." Jen did break her pinky once, that was about it for her. "Unfortunately there are a lot in the world, or galaxy if you like, that don't see things the same way. Children have been subjected to abuse and still are to this very day." She herself looked sombre.

Yet they had to move forward, so Jen took on a cheerier tone. "You know with what I can see here it reminds me of something I saw in a movie long ago back on Earth....um..movies, they're recordings by actors for our entertainment." She had to reiterate that part. "Anyway there was this movie called Alien Resurrection, one of the characters in that was a human robot essentially and she was able to access the ships systems. I'm wondering if that is what the purpose your people had in mind when this was done to you?"She also knew young Bonnie Heckman back at the SGC had been 'modified' to do exactly the same thing.

Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 12, 2015, 05:41:55 AM
It occurred to Tama to explain more about the sin of harming a child, but really how did that help her but only give her darker thoughts about the views of her people, their view that didn't consider that this was harm. Instead she just listened to Dr Keller's analogy, furrowed her brow as that odd understanding came to her.

"It is exactly that, though it looks like I wasn't finished if I read this screen correctly. I have no intention of letting them complete the ultimate goal. "

Her lips thinned out, holding firm the idea that she would not surrender herself to her people, her hands clenched little. Then she drew in a breath, it was harder to keep her emotions in the in little boxes in her mind. So she turned around and put her back to the screen. Rubbing her fingers around her pendant, saying a prayer to herself in her native tongue till she was calmer. Then put her bracers back over her wrists tightening them a little more than she needed too, making them more uncomfortable than usual.

" Can we stop...I don't want too look anymore. I want to go back to the other room please. "

Jen was surprised by the girls assessment of her own plight, she could see quite well to that she was visibly upset by some of the things they had touched on. It certainly made Jennifer more aware of things in a certain light, things that could do harm to one who's mind perhaps hadn't quite yet been fully formed: for of course not, why would it, at least as far as what is right and wrong, she was after all a babe in a woman's body. Appropriately she flicked the switch on the screen and then turned it off at the power, no need to traumatise Tama any longer. "It would appear so I think. Still at some point when you feel more comfortable about it, I'd like to do some more tests." She stood, pushed her chair back waiting for a moment. "If you like, we can take a break and just talk for a bit before we complete the rest of your medical exam."

Fixing her other bracers around her wrist, pulling the strings tight before securing them with a knot. Glancing behind her as the screen and machine was turned off. She chewed her bottom lip for a moment, then turned Dr Keller.

"I don't mind if you wish to keep going, I do not wish to waste your time or monopolize it in any way.
"

Really Tama would prefer the break to process and get herself in a calmer position, however she had been raised to defer to her Elders. She did want to know as much as she could about herself, but brought back that feeling of betrayal as fresh as it was the day she woke after the surgery. She wouldn't mind hearing about more of the movies, she had never seen one but she knew the moment she heard, Tama understood.

"Can we talk about movies? I would like to know more... they sound interesting."

"To tell you the truth I could use the break myself." Jen had been up since five am this morning removing an appendix on one of the base staff, an appendix that should have been taken out ages ago only for the person in question having this adverse fear of losing their 'parts'. After that she was writing reports and generally supervising things until her staff showed up at eight. The operation she did almost on her own with only the help of one Nurse.

"Movies eh? Well I'm not the biggest cinema goer, but I do have some favorites that's for sure. I could guess you'd probably like the genre we call back home Science fiction? There are quite a few of those in our library and you know, I could use ninety minutes or so of relaxation. Would you like to see one?" Jen had the perfect theme in mind, something that might register with Tama; she thought the story of River Tam in Serenity might resonate with her, the story of a girl who was somewhat different.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 16, 2015, 08:41:23 AM
"Well if you need rest then of course I would not wish to tire you out. It would honour me to watch this movie with you. "

The youth was intrigued by the notion of this entertainment, though part of heroines what it was and understood what the genre mentioned was. Though in that the reasoning why she knew itself was a science fiction, if it had been written down rather than her reality. She herself had need of break,she hadn't stopped since she had her bath prior to her talk with Dorestinya and others. Her stomach grumbled a complaint that it hasn't eaten either in some time, she hadn't grown accustomed to having lean days on her travels, not to mention she had always possessed a large appetite, her governess had committed on it frequently alongside her wonderment as to where it all went. Tama was still a slight young thing after all.

"It wouldn't be to much to ask for some food, while we watch this movie? I will earn it worth in service. "

Her faced flushed a little embarrassed by the sound of her grumbling belly, then tugged her travelling robe a little distractedly.

That was all the motivation Jennifer needed to simply stop working for a while and the mention of food, added with a movie gave her a great idea and a way to introduce Tama to a little Earth social cuisine; more so when you're watching a movie.

"Two things honey, you 'have' to eat when watching movies, its a ritual on Earth. Secondly, Tama the only thing you'll need to earn is your pay, yes pay. Because I am quite certain over the next few days, maybe a week at best, they are going ask you if you would like to work for them, by them I mean principally Richard Woolsey and Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard, the military commander here. When that happens, food is part of the deal."

Now where to watch the movie? Not a hard question, since Jen's office was also her private quarters as well and she had a fairly decent big screen there. As for the food in question that would be a surprise. "My rooms, come on I am so going to enjoy this." Something she should have done long ago, relax.

A few minutes later after Jen had led Tama to her suite, the room behind the office, she had called two people. Firstly the base Quartermaster who looked after all the base needs, which included a massive store of DVD's; the second call was to the chef with a special request. He told her it'd be there in ten minutes. "We'll wait for the food." She told Tama moments after the QM delivered the DVD in question. A little time to fill in, so Jen started up her DVD player for a little light entertainment to begin with, sort of a prelude to the movie. "This is sort of the beginnings of where our movie takes place." She told her as she settled both of them onto the large sofa.




Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 17, 2015, 07:01:28 AM
Making a note of this social custom, Tama then consider the idea of working for these people,still coming round to the notion that she wasn't less of a Shade but more than Human. It was something she would need to contemplate, but she needed to gather more information of herself, of these people who were hers by the blood of her Pai.

Quietly she followed Jen, quickly wrapping her robes around her and tidying the sash to secure it. Tugging her sleeves a little to make sure her forearms were cover a little more, still feeling the deep anger at her alterations.
 
By habit, she followed a couple paces behind, because Jennifer would be considered of higher social standing than she. Once in the room, she gazed around but remained a little uncomfortable,not to say the least she had over tightened her bracers. While Jennifer sat on the sofa, Tama thought about sitting on the floor, as she was accustomed to doing. She then decided it was better to follow Jennifer's lead.

"We often have people come on before a dance to explain the story to be performed when doing a large scale performance."

That last remark made Jen smile, as a child her parents had taken her to the far east, Thailand was her favorite of all places there and it was at many Buddhist temples she witnessed the beautiful spectacle of story telling with dance. That was a treat she would save for Tama later. But now it was time for the enjoyment, hopefully, she was a little afraid seeing the 'Reavers' on the movie might scare the young woman. She waited a few more moments for the other surprise and right on time the Chef brought two large tall cartons of freshly made buttered popcorn. He also placed two packs of vanilla ice cream in Jen's small fridge. The fragrance of the popcorn was exotic now after not having had it for so long. "We call it popcorn." She said, handing Tama one of the cartons. She dimmed the lights and pressed play. Just before it started she whispered. "I'm a lousy dancer, but you know I would love to learn."

Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 18, 2015, 09:15:35 AM
When the Quarter master arrived, Tama pulled herself a little more compact. Being in me company unnerved her, but she was seeing it more that if she did stay it was going to be something she adjusted too. All the same she thumbed her pendant for comfort, her intense sapphire blue eyes watching the quarter master the whole time.

Only once he was gone did she relax again, her hands laying nearly now into her lap, before taking the carton of popcorn. Her face turned to look at the screen, watching the film opening. She heard Jen tell her that she wanted to learn to dance, before she responded back she ate a little of her popcorn. Then turned her head around, her eyes still very iridescent and bright in the dimly lit room, like cat eyes.

"I can teach you a little. This popcorn is good but I prefer sweet and salty "

"Next time we'll try caramel corn." Jen said half serious, she was much the same in any case and could go either way. The movie Serenity began to play, the introduction at least and even with that she could feel the tension rise in her blood. Jennifer had watched this movie quite a few times and the reaction, the emotion of it was always the same. She turned for a moment to look at Tama and saw those luminous eyes, which made her gasp, yet she tried not to show it, but obvious just the same. She had half a mind to say something, anything but it caught in her breath.....before the movie got fully underway she did mutter quietly. "I do have two left feet." A smile white lie, Rodney told her she danced beautifully, that seemed so long ago now.

Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 19, 2015, 07:52:48 AM
Gaze returning to the screen, Tama watched the film, grazing on the popcorn as she did so. Watching the film stirred various feelings within her, certainly she felt kinship towards the character of River, it was inevitable that she would do. There was too many similarities between them.

She laughed, not needing prompting by Jennifer, even if she didn't wholly.understand some of the words, the context was enough to make her face brighten.
Tears rolled down her cheeks when Shepard Brook died, when Wash died.

However when ever the Reavers came on screen Tama was reviled, and would avert her head from the screen, save when she watched River slay them. They were too much like her Oma's ancestors at least their predatory nature was. Occasionally she felt a little twitch in her outer jaw, that desire to hunt or to defend when backed in a corner. Self control kept anything as embarrassing as showing her second set of teeth.

Watching the scene with River fight alone, was like a dance for her, though she watched from behind the hem of  her sleeve. The beauty of it drew her more and more to the character.

She was just entranced with every moment, right until the last laugh at the end. When.it was over, she wanted more.

Throughout the entire running of the movie, Jennifer was enthralled. It didn't matter if she had seen it already several times, the entire concept of it kept her in raptures, so much so she didn't even notice the fact she had emptied her carton of popcorn. She to had cried when both Wash and Brook died, those scenes were heart wrenching for her and there were several moments when she had to close her eyes. The final scenes reminded her a little too much of conflicts with the Wraith and one more rather personal conflict she shared with Telya; that cut a little deeper to the bone and she found herself wondering why she even chose this movie.

But when it was all said and done, when the final credits had stopped, Jennifer turned the light back up, looked at Tama and gave her a smile. "You see Tama, River was very different from everyone else. She to was hunted, she had issues with herself as well, probably just like you do now. But in the end, her heart guided her to goodness and it was her friendship with those around her and the compassion they gave her that made her prevail." She was never all that good with psychology, but Jen did have her moments.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 21, 2015, 04:08:36 AM
As the lights go up again, Tama's eyes normalized. Just becoming intensely coloured blue eyes, these were directed towards Jennifer now as she explained River. Tama's head tilted and gazed steadily at Jennifer for a moment after she finished talking.

"I can see how we are alike, however I see how we are not. She knows her past, she knows who she is, she knows who to trust and who not to I don't have any of those things. Nor do have friends, not even back at the Temple, I was never allowed to play with my age mates, just train with them. You have seen how that went. "

She didn't mean to be so dark with her words, but Tama was still trying to piece together everything, difficult when the true pieces were mixed in with the lies. Smoothing her robes, she dismissed the department darkness and sat straighter.

"However all of those things are why I am here. My Godoma said my Pai was of your people, I need to know who...from there a might be able to make more sense of all this."

Lifting her wrists by way of explanation, then pulled at one bracers then the other to give a little relief to the downside cover them as she did.

The end of the movie signaled time for a little more talk and of course for Jennifer to pull out the cushion of her sofa to look for any mislaid popcorn, which naturally she found plenty where she was sitting. Normally if it were her alone she'd eat it, but she didn't want to teach Tama any bad habits, so she quickly plucked off the pieces and throw them in the now empty carton she had. She did though while doing that, listen intently to the young woman, absorbing everything she had said; that to got her mind spinning on several things and it gave her an idea as well. "Being alone as a kid is not all bad, although I admit it does make you a little socially awkward when you do start to mix with people in your adult life. That was pretty much my life really, I think from a very young age, studying things took my life away. But you know, hearing what you've just told me had given me something I can offer you Tama."

She moved over to her desk not far away to flick through some papers until she found the one she wanted. It was a clipping from her hometown newspaper. Back to the sofa she sat down again, showing Tama the item from the paper. "Briefly this is about a paternity suit. I kept it because I knew this girl back home, quite simply she had an affair with an older man, got pregnant and as many males often do, he denied any knowledge of either her or the baby. So she took him to court, the judge ordered a DNA test to prove the father. My point being, we can do that here and we do not need to extract DNA from anyone other than you by a blood sample. All personnel on this base have their DNA filed with our data base. If what you say is true, I can get a match in minutes."
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on June 23, 2015, 07:21:48 AM
While she watched Dr Keller rummage among the papers on her desk, Tama's brow furrowed, not sure what she could possibly offer about her loneliness. She could agree on the social awkwardness, but then she had been raised in a strict hierarchy. Your rank was absolutely everything there, it dictated everything.

So in this less formal universe beyond the high walls of the Temple, Tama had found herself completely at a loss. On some of the world she had been mocked, others had tried to turn it to their advantage. Either way she had become a little reluctant to interact till she had got a idea of how she was expected to act.

Carefully she took the piece of paper, reading about it while listening to Dr Keller. This would be the biggest secret of her life, but it did bring up her bigger fear. Rejection.

She had been raised in the belief that she had been rejected by her Pai already, she feared that it wasn't a lie. If he rejected her, would she be allowed to stay, if it wasn't true would they still want her?

If you would do this, it would mean everything to me. I would be in your debt, I swear by the Goddess I would. "

With her promise she touched her pendant lightly with her fingers, sealing it.

"Glad you agree Tama, I really am." That was possibly the most poignant oath she had heard for a very long time and Jennifer had heard quite a few in her time, not only here, but home as well; more so at John Hopkins during her time as casualty registrar. "Come on then, back outside and we'll get this done. I'm confident we will find a match if your father donor is on this base. I just hope I don't get to big a surprise." She could think of several, and there were several she'd rather not think about.

Tama wasn't sure what to make of the statement,but she choose not to comment. Setting aside the article, she arose on to her bare feet and smoothed down her clothing, adjusted it before moving to follow Jennifer back.

She could feel her heart pounding in her chest, why wouldn't it with the prospect of finding this answer that was central to understanding who or what she was, or at least she hoped it would.

"This isn't a disturbance to your time. I was only sent for the examination, we haven't done that yet?"

It wasn't that long before that fear made her want to almost back out, though determined for the answer, she was fishing for a legitimate excuse to back out. She knew though really she would be angry with herself if she did.

Picking up where they had left off previously, Jen sat Tama down next to the blood test table, all shiny stainless steel. She took the girls left arm and applied a tourniquet to her upper bicep, tightening it just so. She sterilised her inner forearm with a alcohol swipe, there was no trouble finding a suitable vein, Tama's pulse was incredibly strong, Jen found  larger median cubital vein without any problem. She slipped on a pair of sterile surgical gloves, giving her the appearance of someone who was doing everything by procedure, which Jen practically wrote the book on as far as Atlantis was concerned; she wheeled the sampling trolley over next to her. There were two vials for the collection and the venipuncture hypodermic was ready. "I'll need you to make a fist for me Tama, and I promise this won't hurt." She gave her a reassuring smile.

"Once we're done with this, the sampling will take about thirty minutes, we can finish the rest of your examination then and no, Honey its a pleasure for me to do this, whether I was ordered to or not."

"There is a needle going into my arm, of course its going to hurt. However it will not be the worst pain I have felt."

Being rather blunt and not wanting any sort pandering to, though she did understand that Jennifer was just trying to be nice towards her. Tama was still liking that she could speak her mind from time to time. Her left hand clenched,curling her fingers in under themselves.

"It's kind of scary that I could know in a short time who my Pai is. Then again it has always been scary since I woke up after. "

She raised her right arm to indicate what she ment, holding the forearm up with its bracers still concealing the lower half of her arm.

"Will you have to tell him? About what they did to me? I mean if you find out who my Pai is? "

It was always refreshing to hear honesty, all too often, more so with the men, they made vain attempts to put on a bravado and tell her that it was nothing, all the while Jen knew having blood drawn was no easy feat for some people, being both physical and visual. "Wellll..." She grinned as the needle went in. "I'll make this as quick as possible Tama." Jen spoke rapidly, taking the first vial and filling it, then quickly the second one. "You can relax now, open your hand." She removed the tourniquet, then applied a small circular band aid she had ready to the needle site, then with her delicate hand she wrote the details on the tubes. The only name she could apply for the moment was simply 'Tama'.

"Right, now to business. I'll get those off to the lab immediately and we'll soon find our who your dad is, I can understand your anxiety to, I'd be the same. But I tell you what Tama..when we do find out, I'll be more than happy to be the informant." She picked up the two samples, placed them in a padded bag, then dropped them in a shoot nearby. The results would be on her computer very soon.

She tried not to cringe when the needle went in but Tama couldn't help herself, so she could only turn her head away to preserve her dignity or rather her pride.

Once it was over, she looked at the little plaster before watching her name being written in the characters she knew to be familiar. Though she had never how to spell it in the tongue, now she knew.

Flexing her hand carefully she decided she was better to take the bracers off, simply for comforts sake. She trusted that they would not be interrupted. Her face though huffed slightly in annoyance as she loosened and slid them off, turning her hands face down.

"That is not what I asked, though knowing that his kin has returned to claim him as such will be better believed. I asked if you would have to tell him about what was done to me? Will I be treated as a child of my Oma's people or an Adult of yours? "

If she was of these people, Tama needed to rethink completely as she saw herself, for till her escape she was a child, but in her exploration and wandering she had found that humans did not perceive her that way, the start of this meeting between head been on that subject. She could try and run the calculations in her had and gauge her approximate human age, but that didn't mean she would be treated by that approximate age.

 "I understood perfectly, so perhaps I should rephrase that. Other than telling whoever it may end up being they have a daughter, as to what was done to you I think we should approach that less directly. Its not something that might be taken lightly, nor do I suspect that whoever your father is, will be all that willing to accept that he has somehow been responsible for bringing a child into the world, much less one who is now a fully grown woman." Normally Jennifer was less outgoing in her little speeches, more selective with what she said. But all the while Tama had been telling of her life, Jennifer had been taking mental notes.

She squeezed her chin with thumb and forefinger in thought before she spoke again. "Honey, you're as every bit an adult as I am. True you have some learning to do, but I can see it in you, you have the capacity to learn fast."

"I apologise for any offence I have made, I have not had much practice in speaking this tongue. We only spoke the language of my people within the Temple."

The black hair head dipped respectfully.Even if she hadn't caused offence, ingrained teachings still made her apologise anyway. It was unthinkable that she had corrected someone who was older than her.

The compliment though made her blush and smile, but kept her head bent in humility though every fibre of her being wanted to hold it up high and in utter arrogance speak her agreement of how brilliant she was in that regard. It took her a moment or two to come up with a more appropriate statement to respond with before raising her head and tilted it with a bright smile.

"I will abide by your judgement in handling this, though will you teach what I must know. To be part of this society? "

Slowly, little by little Jennifer could see a development. Tama would listen and absorb what she was being told and then she could see the girl working on it, that is if it were possible to see a mind working. "No offence at all Tama, as human beings at least from where I come from; we value honesty and forthrightness in people. Speaking your heart and mind is something that will be expected from you in time to come as your time here becomes more involved with the city. I half expect at some point, once you've been fully evaluated to be considered as part of a team."

Jennifer straightened a little, looking at Tama square in the eye. "I and many others will be here for you to make sure you learn all that is needed; yes I will teach you and it will be a pleasure to do so. Now lets finish this examination so I can send you back to Mister Woolsey for his final appraisal." Jen would be putting in more than a good word on the girl of that, it was certain.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 01, 2015, 07:50:44 AM
"Yes, we should get this over and done with."

Nodding her head in a firm agreement, Tama beamed a smile. She still felt nervous about being here, but it was lessening as she came to give a little of her guarded trust. She didn't have much in giving the trust really, her fate was not in her hands as yet.

If, as Jennifer said, the offer to work and stay here was proposed Tama knew she would take it in a heart beat. Wandering had been fun in many ways, but being hunted diminished that in many ways.

This next part had to be handled with the utmost delicacy and Jennifer knew it only too well. She stepped out of her chair for just a moment, closing and locking the door, she also switched off the CCTV monitors as well, which as CMO was her call and her choice. "This won't be the first time, so you can take this as an initiation I guess Tama. For me to complete the medical, I'll need you to strip down completely and I promise I'll be as gentle and as tactful as I can professionally be." She hated doing this to other women, Jennifer knew herself how embarrassing it can be, but it had to be done.

Tama did exactly as she was told,not so self conscious of her body having grown up in the company of women. The only thing she was self conscious about her wrists, but that had been seen so she could push that aside for now.

All her clothes, patched and frayed, was folded to the side with the utmost care. They were only one of her narrow choices in clothing.

"Better than my last initiation, I woke up with the implants rather than meeting all the suitable males that I could consider as a potential partner.

A small giggle broke from Jen's mouth, as the last words left Tama's. That was quite funny and she was finding the young girl despite her seemingly obvious naivety to life, had acquired a rather lovely sense of humor along the way. You would have to really, to survive this universe and all its horrors, and hearing some of Tama's life put that into fresh perspective to. "I'm trying to imagine attracting suitable suitor back home if I stood stark naked in Central Park..." She trailed off at the shocking thought of that.

The examination needed to be quick and accurate, which Jen was more than capable of doing. She ran her hands over Tama's body feeling for any oddities, bumps, scars and so on; the usual hand under the groin, which was always an embarrassing thing to do with any gender, even for the Doctor and the following. "Cough please." After that delicate part was over, she checked the small breasts for lumps and found none, so far everything was in order. There were some scars, newly healed scratches and what she could see was a scar on her waist that may need attention. She checked Tama's face and jaw, that was a bit of a shock to see the second set of teeth, which raised Jen's eyebrows just a little. When it was all done she managed a proper smile. "You're in better shape than most Tama, a couple of things that could be fixed for you, namely that wound on your wrist. But other than that, you're doing good. Would you like me to get some base clothing sent up for you?" It would certainly be better for her. 
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 03, 2015, 09:28:05 AM
Even Tama laughed at the notion, her face flushing.

"I wasn't naked then, I was dressed in my stiff formal robes. My face all paintex,my hair waxed and oiled into place. I had to look perfect, because I was a lady of a high rank and ladies of high rank should make the males believe themselves unworthy of us. Which from what the other girls said, the males of my home world really were not worthy of me nor even my intellectual equals. No one was really, I stopped needing a tutor after two seasons. No one even taught me to speak the common tongue or how to piece together my toys and mechanisms. I just knew and worked it out myself."

Talking helped distract her from being to overly focused on the scrutiny she was being put though. Grimacing at the memory of being forced to wear her formal clothing she loathed beyond contempt for its stifling nature.

Glad that it was over, she glanced at her handiwork on her form, she had did what she could, luckily she still had a needle in the hem of her sleeve that made it a little easier.

"I could do with fresh clothing, I have some from the Eld'ari, but if wearing the clothing of your people will help me fit in, then I would be glad if it. Though no foot coverings."

Being more than happy of the outcome, Jen stripped off her surgical gloves, throwing them in the waste bin. She then folded her arms in her typical way, not a defensive stance by all means, just Jens way of relaxing."I don't think I'd get along too well with your former world Tama, the regime seems far too... She searched for the right word and there was only one she could choose. "...strict. Even on my world there are of course rules and protocols to follow, some people live by it. It reminds me of what we do have back home; some countries still cling to the old notion of Royalty and I guess that's how their lives are lived, much like your past." It was worth thinking on that.

"Just slip this robe on for now, I'll make the call and since you're pretty much the same size as I am, that'll make it easier. I'll just order up all I can think of in my size, underwear included." She picked up a clean gown to hand over, then tapped her radio. In minutes she had assured Tama the clothes would be there soon. "You will need some footwear at some point, even if only for safety off world." She added.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 04, 2015, 06:22:16 AM
Tama barely got on with the regime of the Temple, but survival instincts forced her to abide by the rules. She had to find small ways to rebel or cause mischief in some way to release her frustration, but it never could trace back to her.

"It isn't so bad outside the Temple, from.what my Godoma says it was less strict in the Temple. Certainly more rules have been put in place within of the Temple in the last decade. Mostly to restrict the Temple occupants."

Touching her pendant, Tama thought about her Godoma still trapped within, of all the occupants of the Temple, she had been restricted the most on grounds that as Divine Empress she had to protected be.

Once she had put back on her holsters, checking that her war fans were still secure inside. Tama accepted the robes, wrapping it around her waist with care, then tugging her sleeves wanting them to be longer because of her self consciousness of the implants. She then took her bundle and opened it to put away her tatty traveling bribe she arrived into put it away with her other few possessions. Her two good robes, a hair pin and a pair of cloth shoes, the embroidery was unfinished on it.

"There are only three circumstances in which it is permissible under my beliefs to cover my feet and disconnect my soul from the universe. Firstly I have died. Secondly I am dying and third I am prepared to die."

She took the cloth shoes out, hesitating for a moment but decided that explaining them was better left to another time and alongside another conversation,once she had things sorted in her head.

Setting things back in order after the examination was routine for Jennifer, she had been doing so long now it was second nature to her. She spoke as she worked. "Life sometimes can be over complicated with rules don't you think? Yet at the same time, if we as sentient beings don't have rules or guidelines to follow, the Universe would be utter chaos. I know even the most evil of species to, follow some rules of their own."

She finished putting the last of the things away when a soft knock came to the door. Jen switched on her camera screen from the hallway to see it was the Quartermaster's assistant, a young woman from Scotland who had only been on the base a month or so. She opened the door to take the heavy bundle from the girl. "Thank you Jessie."

"A pleasure Doctor Keller. Ye be needin anythin else?" She asked.

"No that will be all for now." The red head smiled, then skipped away happily knowing she'd done her job.

The bundle was wrapped in brown paper and tape, Jen wasted no time in unwrapping it noting that they hadn't forgotten a thing. A pair of brown combat boots, bathroom slippers, two seats each of camoflage and the base grey/maroon jumpsuit, underwear top and bottoms, sports uniforms, tee shirts and shorts, socks, nothing was left out which made her smile. "I'd start with this for the moment." She indicated the Atlantis base uniform.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 05, 2015, 07:16:12 AM
Securing her bundle closed, Tama listened and watched Jennifer put things away. She consider a lot of the rules she had been raised with. Only the religious ones she understood why they were as they were, at least in her own way.

"Rules with a good reason are sensible, the highest sins I can commit, other than harming a child, is to consume meat, especially raw and bloody meat. I certainly am capable of doing it, you saw the inner jaw. However consumption on a regular basis could lead to my prey drive being kicked into overtime and that can lead to danger for others.
If it cannot be contained and the subject brought back under control, we are duty bound to dispatch..."

She didn't finish what was said, the knocking on the door cut her off. Turning her palms down and pressed against her, she made sure the implants were not visible. The accent made her frown, it sounded strange just as the red hair was, to her but she had that feeling of familiarity with it.

She pushed it aside once the red head left the room, relaxing her arms from against her then watched Jennifer unwrap all the clothing. Her eyes widening as she saw the style and variety.

She nodded her head picking up the base uniform and looking at it. It seemed a little awkward for her to be getting into, but she had to abide by it. She glanced at the underwear,ignored the boots and socks completely.

"Which is the foundation garments?"

Keeping the conversation going from where she left off, Jen needed to add a point in reply to what Tama mentioned about footwear. "You could classify going off world with a team you may be assigned to as being prepared to die. I know that sounds a little dramatic, but it could help you justify getting around your customs." It did sound strange in her own ears to say that, yet then she knows that many cultural boundaries had to be pushed to find a way beyond what someone would normally do. The full one piece hooded swim suits for Muslim women was an example she could think of.

"Well Tama you won't get any arguments from me on that score, we have quite a few here on base we call 'vegetarians'. Those who do not consume meat of any kind and our chefs had built up quite a considerable menu list of food that won't leave you bored. I'm even considering myself if only for the health benefits." She had been putting it off for ages and now that Tama was here it might be a good time to take that next step. "There are of course those rules we 'bend' a little to suit the situation if you know what I mean." There was a joke in there somewhere and she was sure it could have been delivered much better than that.

Now they came to the fun part, in a way Jen was expecting this, it made her smile, thinking of the time one of her younger cousins was living with her at the time the girl had just reached puberty. "Confusing isn't it. These things.." She picked up one of the black sports briefs. "...are your panties, or underpants as some might call them. Although that term is most often used for the male version. And this.." Dropping that item, Jennifer then picked up the nice little black sports bra, one of three that came with the clothes. "...we call it a bra, or brassiere to be more exact; is what keeps you intact up here." She pointed at her chest. "This is the sports bra. We do of course have other versions of them, but for most of the time here those would be a waste." Could the girl figure it out, or did she need help, it would be a test to see how quickly her mind unraveled things she was not accustomed to.
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 07, 2015, 08:10:11 AM
The reasoning could not be doubted in regard to foot wear and her customs. In her short time she had been out in the universe she had discovered how dangerous it was and not just because of the hunting party after her.

"Would It bring you piece of mind to you if I did so? I mean I can't deny the logic of it all. I have come close to covering my feet. However there is no bending on the consumption of meat, the bones are okay as long as they are picked clean first. Fish too,they don't have the enzyme that would lead to a crazed killing spree."

She responded, inspecting the underwear with care, slipping on first the bottoms then she fumbled around with the bra, getting it over her body was easy, but she fumbled terribly with the hood, the implants putting a little distance between her arms and her body, pinning the fabric she was trying to stretch to allow her to slide the hook into the eye. They dug into her back, as she tried to pull more but gave up and grunted her annoyance at the stupid contraption.

"I prefer the binding my chest, it's easier to secure with the implants, which I'm sure these bras were not designed in mind of these. "

"Well she managed way better than I did when I was a kid." Jen mused to herself and she was quite impressed with Tama's ready adaptability, something she'd be needing in the future, taking every situation as it came to you as if it were second nature to you. Still she saw there was a problem, a small one which fortunately Jessie was wise enough to provide most everything Tama would need in the here and now. "Honey I have enough problems with kids from the Athosians running around here barefooted then turning up in my office with something in their feet. I certainly don't want to have to be giving you the same sermon I give them do I?" Her smile was quite infectious and she was sure Tama could see the humor in it.

Jennifer rummaged through the clothing, she knew what she was looking for: two things predominantly that would help. The first she found in a small brown paper bundle, she unwrapped it carefully not being entirely sure it was the exact thing she was looking for; she needn't have worried. "Lets meet in the middle on the footwear for around base. You can run around your own room, or the gym without shoes and no one, least of all me will say a thing. But I think these (http://www.kathmandu.co.nz/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/2000x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/3/3/33019_pebble_b22.png) might help." She handed the items over to her. Then there was the issue with the bra and rightly Jen had to admit there was a problem with that. Right almost at the bottom of the pile were the gym clothes. "You can wear this (http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/Lost%20Worlds%20Forum%20Photo%20Gallery/Stargate%20Yoga_zps3ardiw6u.jpg) instead, they're made out of what we call elastane, very comfortable and you simply slip it on."



 
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 09, 2015, 07:36:33 AM
She inspected what she was offered as a compromise but instead set it very firmly aside and firmly as far away from her as she could. Her back drew straight, her eyes fixed and her jaw firmed up. She wasn't going to attack, but she had been insulted and that inner anger that she often fought hard to keep back was now itching to be released.

"I will not wear anything on my feet while I am within the walls of this great city,lest I am ready to face death or fear that it is near and or it has claimed me. Lecture away, but I will not break my faith! It is all I have."

She disentangle herself from the bra, threw it away and took the Elastane, then proceeded to angrily dress herself in silence. Her back firmly turned on Jennifer as she did so. Mostly for the following reasons:

1) Tama was angry at her still for the insult to her culture and beliefs
2) Tama was angry at herself for her behaviour.
3) She was trying not to cry, because she missed her Godoma, to whom her faith was a last connection.

The legs felt strange, to have fabric intersect between them, but it was easy to strap her war fan holsters around her thighs and check that the catches were securely closed.  Once she was dressed, her bundle checked to be sure it was secure. Tama set about bundling up the new clothes she had, though still leaving anything that she would cover her feet till for now. She would add them last to the bundle.

"I am sorry for being rude. I know it seems odd to only cover our feet for death, but it is the wHole of my Oma's people and I am not ready to shed them.completely. Do not think that I am not grateful for the clothing, they are strange to me, but not so difficult to put on, except the bra..."

Still looking folorn where it lay.

"... that I cannot fathom. Please don't press me to cover my feet on base, as you put it, this is I will promise : to wear whatever foot coverings you wish when I go off base.

One would be forgiven for thinking that Jennifer had just reacted to the best bit of humor she's ever had the pleasure of enjoying such was the grin on her face; the point was, for the time being until Annie Horowitz arrived with Sheppard and the rest, Jennifer was essentially the base psychologist as well as the MD and for the last little while she had been watching Tama, she felt she was bowing a little too much to these strangers. Now to see her with some spunk, that made the woman feel ten times better and it would do Tama some good to get it out.

"Good." She said nodding her head at the same time. "Neither I nor anyone here Tama would want you to change what you are. That you have your principles and stick to them, will serve you far better than being a lackey to anyone. We need strong people here and stronger women and honey believe me you will do well. When the time comes, I get you to meet Teyla Emmargan, she will I believe be able to guide and help you more than anyone else. Oh and the bras, damn stupid things most of the time but if ever you want something elegant, we can get those two for special occasions. So...ready to see Richard now?" She felt like hugging the girl, but for now she held off that little habit. 
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: MeredithMcKay on July 10, 2015, 08:10:15 AM
This was not the reaction Tama was expecting, nor was use to. It threw the youth of balance leaving her a little speechless and motionless while she absorbed that she hadn't been scolded for her ill manners. Humans were definitely more free in.how they spoke to each other, this was going to take some adjusting.

She choose in the end to let that subject line for now and finished securing her new bundle of clothes, placing the offending items last in the pile. They would be best kept lest she cause offence.

"If I need something elegant, I have my good robes and my dancing robes still, but I would be interested in trying elegant clothing of your people. But not Bra's. You can keep them all."

Picking up her bracers, Tama started to strap them back over her wrists and the sleeves of her new clothing. Though the sleeves were long enough to cover the implants, Tama just was still subconscious about them.

"Will we not wait to know if my Pai is of your kind? Or is it best Mr Woolsey knows to, I won't mind if that is the case, as leader he will need to know, will he not?"

A little order was needed for her, so Jennifer went to her own locker nearby, retrieving a brand new back pack she had picked up on her last trip home, Tama needed it more than she did and it wasn't as if she didn't have others, she had three of them in fact. "Here sweety take this as a gift (http://www.kathmandu.com.au/packs-and-bags/packs/entrada-65l-backpack-v2-black-cherry.html) from me, put all your things in that and as soon as we get a room for you, you'll have your own space with plenty of places to store things (and hide them to if she wanted to). We'll go see Richard now and by the time we get there the results should be in. If needed, I'll tell him who your daddy is." That gave her a chance to smile broadly and there was the other thing. "Sometimes elegant formal wear for women of our world is preferable without them and you're of a size that can beautifully carry it off."

Tama hesitated a moment before accepting the bag with both her hands. Bowing from her waist, her head and eyes dipped respectfully.

"Thank you"

Opening it, she started packing everything she had inside the back pack. Taking care of each item to make sure she didn't crumple of them.

"That seems acceptable, though I feel very nervous now I am close to knowing who he is."

Tama admitted, swinging the back pack on to her back, then checked her bra ers were secure on her. Once she was satisfied, scanning her blue eyes around to ensure nothing was left, then followed Jennifer out.

Fidgeting with her pendant, which was only serving as a distraction from.her nerves and pounding heart, Tama entered the infirmary with Jennifer. Keeping close as always, but not staying still.

This was just the first stage, soon she would have a name. The next question was he still around? Was he alive or dead? Would he accept her or deny her out right? She had grown believing that he had not wanted her, but having briefly spoken with the El'dari she wasn't so sure of this (not to mention the lies her people had fed her till the day she awoke from the augmentation surgery). They had suggested that she was not of natural conception, but a clone. She knew her people had such technology, but not completely refined in it.

She would soon know and it terrified her to her core.

Just two seconds from the moment Jennifer with Tama passed the threshold of her door, she closed and locked it; this was one of those moments she simply did not want and refused to be disturbed. Letting Tama find a chair for herself, she went straight to her desk, sat down quickly with her hands reaching for the keyboard as she did so. Clickety clack went her fingers swiftly across the keys... then when she finally saw the results her eyes went wide. "Oh my god!" She exclaimed in mock horror, a half smile creasing her lips. Jennifer swung the monitor around so that Tama could read it.

Tama tilted her head slightly, reading the screen and mouthing the name. It sounded very familiar, like she had known it all her life, yet she knew it had never Bern spoken or written before to this moment. There was something missing from the name, which her mind filled in for her.

"Meredith..."

She murmured lightly under her breath, her hand reached out to touch the screen, while her heart pounded in her chest. She glanced up as she heard Chucks voice call.over the radio. He was here? Her Pai? He would come? Would he reject her again? Did he even really know about her? How much was lies and truth?

Tama could feel her head swirl with the fear of what might be, fear of what he might do, fear of knowing her life before was a lie. The panic rose and she seized her pendant, praying as she tried to breath through her fear. It did not want to go into the little box in her mind, where she was taught to put her emotions. It didn't want to go.

"My Lady, ...have compa...ssion. Share ...in my...fear... ease...it from me...keep me.... safe... let him...let him...be good..."

She wanted this, she needed to know this but it had been a fantasy a dream to her and now it was real. Tama had learned from experience that dreams and reality did not match. Standing up from.the seat she had taken, Tama started packing as she tried to think herself through this, murmuring her prayer between forced intakes of breath as she paniced. Her face had paled, her hands shaking and a cold sweat had broken out.

There were some things you could never change and one of them was Rodney. Despite he and Jen being quite open about being a 'couple' and her having deep feelings for the man; there were still a few things about him that was a little on the annoying side, his priorities for one. Why didn't he see her first when he first arrived?

Jen looked over at Tama, she could see the girl was both nervous and a little shaken by the revelation, even though she could not possibly be aware of who he was. Her hand instinctively went to Tama's shoulder. "He...he's not perfect Tama, but he does have a good heart." She tapped her radio this time. "No its all right Chuck and thank you. I'm sure he knows where to find me." There was a little sadness in her voice.

Tama kept up her prayer,breathing as best she could through the sudden panic that gripped her. She hadn't acted so emotional since she was young, such behaviour had not been tolerated and so squashed.

The terrified youth felt the hand touch her shoulder, directing her fear filled sapphire eyes upwards to look at Jennifer. Her shaking hand reached up to hold fast around Jennifer's. It took a few moments to catch her breath and reign but it was clearly strined with her panic.

"They...the Elders, told me... that he rejected me. They told me lies... but what...if it isn't one? What if is ...a lie, but he rejects ...me any way? Will he ...reject me?"

It wasn't perfection she sought, he could have all the faults possible but Tama just didn't want to be rejected. She had left the only home she had known and returning was not an option. Not with the plans her people had in-store. She feared that if she was rejected, then she would have to leave the city.

"Tell me about him...is he honourable? "

If she wasn't so panicked, Tama would have noticed the sadness in Jennifer's voice, would have maybe noticed there was something between her Pai and her new friend.

What to do? Jen's first thought earlier of course was to bring the man down here and present him with his 'daughter'; but the more she thought about it the more she knew that was simply not the thing to do. He would bolt, totally reject the claim and quite possibly any tentative relationship she had with him with bolt right out the door with him. "Tama, listen sweetheart...yes he is honorable to a degree." He was, he was simply in his own zone most of the time. "I think we should play this at another angle. Those bracers of yours and the connections you can make. What if we introduced him to that without revealing anything else at the moment?" It was worth a try at least.

Then back on the radio, Jennifer covered herself. "Welll, um sort of Rodney. I heard you were back...ah....were you going to come and see me any time soon?" It had been six months at least, so that might do it.

To hear he was honourable in part was of some comfort to her, she was my sure what to make of statement, but she felt that her instincts agreed.

Taking in a long shuddering breath, Tama used the hem of her sleeve to dry any tears from her face. She then looked at her bracelets, pressing uncomfortable against the implants underneath. Tama chewed on her lip slowly before snatching the covers and looking at the implanted metal

Hearing Jennifer, she looked up at her and furrowed her brow. Was there something between,Tama wasn't sure nor did it feel to be her place to ask.

" I trust you who I should tell about these, if this will interest my Pai then I will show him. If I can't have them removed, I would rather them be useful. If you think I should not tell him who I am to him, I will trust you. "

When Tama said trust, it also had obedience undertones. She recognized Jennifer as an senior member of her new people,her old people had left their imprint to obey a d respect those who were high in status or rank to her.

Rodney walked around his lab aimlessly while he considered what to say to her.  He always overthought these situations.  He'd get nervous, start sweating, his mouth would get dry and he'd always end up saying something really stupid.  Why did he still feel so awkward with Jennifer?
"I'm sorry, I've kind of been busy since we got back".
Way to go, McKay, he thought, you just told her how far down on your list of important things she is.
"I'm in my lab right now but I can come down to the infirmary if  you want", he stammered, "Is that what you want?"

Tapping her lips as a means of concentration, Jennifer thought long and hard on the subject of Rodney and how best it was to approach him, that applied to almost any topic you could think of when it came down to it. Finally after a drawn out few minutes she had a plan hatched. "Just a moment Tama." She said in a very kindly tone, Jen needed to reply to Rodney quickly if she was to do this; knowing how impatient he could be sometimes.

"Yes please Rodney. I know busy, so it won't take long really. There is something interesting you should see." There that will be enough to tease him out. She returned her attention to Tama then. "We'll play it by ear as they say back home Tama. As you heard me tell him just now, I think those..." She nodded at the implants."...will be more than enough to get him going. At some point he'll be curious as to how this came about. Lets say we need to see how he reacts okay?"

"Look, I haven't had anything to eat since we returned", he stated hesitantly, "How about if we meet in the mess hall and you can tell me all about it".  Kill two birds with one stone he thought.  He could feel his blood sugar dropping and rather than put her off any longer, he figured they could talk while he ate.  She'd understand he convinced himself as he smiled at what he felt to be his own cleverness.

Listening to the conversation, the youth was still uneasy and fearful of rejection, but if Jennifer.felt that it best to keep her kinship silent and show him the implants then she would trust in that judgement. She knew him best, judging by the tone of their voices.

The suggestion to go to the cafeteria got her back right up and her liberated arms crossed over. Her eyes went hard and cold, she was certainly firm on one thing.

"I will not be showing him or anyone in a public place the implants. If I show him, he will be the last I show."

Even though Tama felt she could trust these people, she was still very aware that she was hunted, her people would search her out and grab her. So keeping it within a few select people.

Now here was the conundrum for Jen and Tama, both had eaten only a short while ago and rather well at that to; of course when you're around Rodney one certainly couldn't be seen as either rude or impolite, not that manners often meant all that much to him, well sometimes they did. What to do? Snacks, they can always use the snack machine again. "Right Tama, no one else will see them, we'll go to the balcony again and Rodney can meet us there okay?" Sounds like a plan. She tapped her comslink once more. "Rodney, I'll meet you on the cafe balcony, its a really lovely day, too much so to be stuck indoors." Always a good excuse.

<<Back to Cafe>>

She held back any stubborn remarks, the balcony was a good spot if it was empty. Certainly it was shelter enough for her to briefly show what was under ger bracers, which she replaced on to forearms to cover the implants.

Once she was sure they were secure, the cuffs of her new and still uncomfortable clothing covered them. She got to her feet and followed Jennifer out to the cafeteria.

 There was still a slight reluctance in Tama, Jen could clearly see that and she knew only too well how the girl felt. Too often culture came in between good medicine and best practice; although at least she was willing. "Okay Tama, how about we start thinking about that next big step? Getting you ready for the OR. I won't kid you, it can be scary but I will be with you all the way."

Hurrying, without actually running, still at a pace that was more in Elle’s tempo rather than his, Mike took the short cut via the hangar bay of the Dread and headed towards the nearest transporter.
If he’d felt a bit like a strange bird in his bright Hawaiian shirt before, although completely at ease with it, he felt just as out of place in his flight suite compared to the rest of the people roaming the halls of Atlantis.
5 minutes later, he stopped in front of Anne just outside the infirmary door, “Alright Dr MacGregor, what do you need me here for?” Mike said in a neutral, yet serious tone, his eyes though revealed that he wasn’t all that serious.

Tama watched from her perch the exchange between Anne and this Michael she was to meet. His response though nearly made her chuckle,but it was brief because she moved her hand to cover her mouth and caught sight of the implant.

Settling her hand back down on to her lap, the brought it up to her pendant, starting to feel more and more nervous about going through this. It was sin to disobey the wishes of the Elders, but was it not a sin against her not to be given a choice? She nearly didn't hear Jennifer speak to her,but her sapphire eyes shifted once her mind finally filter and acknowledge what had been said. She didn't response immediately, just sat there rubbing her thumb over her pendant.

"Nurse Kelly too?"

Fast? Anne knew immediately the poor man had been running, or close to it. She almost felt like throwing a quip at him about his attire as well, she didn't simply because she wouldn't recognize him otherwise and besides Anne adored Mike's lack of discipline as far as regulations were concerned. She ignored the official title for now with a wide smile. "Nothing majorly complex Mike, we have a young alien lass inside whose creators felt it necessary to give her a nice pair of bracelets. The problem is those bracelets are connected to the nerve endings. Jennifer though as experienced as anyone doesn't feel overly confident and for me, I won't trust my hands to do the fine work required. But you, well Mike I've seen your work and I couldn't think of anyone better suited." Nothing like a little ego boosting Anne always said.

“Oookaay,” was the pensive reply from Mike. He didn’t quite believe Anne’s excuse for not doing this by herself, then again - all respect for the surgeon who actually put down the knife *before anyone was put in harms way due to old age.
But his interest was peaked and he relaxed his stance, leaning his shoulder towards the wall as he spoke. “I think I’d like to know a little bit more though. Her age. Her mental and physical condition. What these ‘bracelets’ look like and how many we’re talking about. It would also be interesting to know what kind of equipment do you have around here compared to what I’m used to.”
Mike chuckled as he continued, “Lots of questions I’m aware of that, I just want to know what I’m getting myself in to before diving head on in the deep side.”

Anne arched her eyebrow more out of humor than anything else. Of the several hundred under Anne's command, Mike along with one or two others always brought that out in her. "According to the interview she had with Jennifer, which I've only perused through roughly Mike; she is just four years old yet her physical appearance is a young woman in her late teens or early twenties. As to her mental state, I've talked to her for an hour or so on and off- she's as sharp as a pin."

While talking, Anne's mind was going through everything she had learned since she met the young woman, she realised that at first she had given Mike the wrong impression. "Ah, the bracelets are removable as they are merely covering implants on her wrists so you'd have to see them really to get the right perspective there. I don't think my description would be adequate enough for you. As for facilities and equipment Mike, you won't find it lacking. We could do anything here that was possible at home and then some; although if you're unsure we could always do it aboard the Dread I suppose." That was in fact Anne's initial assessment in any case.

‘A four-year-old!?’ Mike’s initial reaction was one of anger and utter frustration. Who could do that to a kid? ‘I’ve seen a lot of craziness over the years, but this must be of the most twisted things I’ve ever encountered!’
Although as Anne continued, he managed to restrain his feelings and listened on, making an effort to take it all in.

“Oh, nononono.” Mike finally said and held out his hands in a defensive gesture all while he shook his head. Still, there was a small grin, “No. No more aliens on board the Dread. Look where that got me the last time….” He made an indication with his hand towards his face, “…although I actually have my doubts she could do anything like that, I have my reservations about moving her, so – “
Mike tucked his hands in to the pockets of his flight suite, “As long as you have a microscope worth its name we’ll do it here. I just have one more concern, do you have scans of those implants that I can have a look at before I meet her, just to see if it’s even feasible for me to have a go? It wouldn’t be fair to get her hopes up if it turns out I back out of it because I think it’s to difficult or even to dangerous for her to do the procedure.”

Pushing back the ever slipping glassed back up the bridge of her nose, Anne had in her mind what Mike would have asked for before she even approached him and why wouldn't she. They came from the same mindset, they had worked together on the Daedalus or was it the Saggitta? She couldn't recall off hand. Still it made no difference she knew him well enough. There was one thing she had to tell him though, something she knew he'd get a kick out of or find rather amusing at least. "I should point out Mike she has an aversion to males in general, although we've assured her you're one of the good guys." No change in expression, total blank face to add to the fun of the moment. "Come on, while Jennifer is prepping her I'll take you to X-Ray as we have everything on her in there in readiness for the surgery." Whether he did it or not, Anne wasn't about to let the girl be let down at this point.

 With a quick glance Jennifer looked up at the status board, Tama was in luck as Kelly would be theatre nurse on this evenings roster. She was gathering confidence by the minute, that was surely needed right now, needed by both of them as she had to do her best for Tama to know she was in safe hands. "Most definitely she will be Tama. Kelly in fact with be the duty nurse tonight so you will be surrounded by friends. So, how about we get you down to your underwear, then you can slip this on."

"You know how it is Mike, complications are what we Medicos under the Stargate programme thrive on come high or low water, we always have that capacity for finding the most obscure solutions to the most ridiculous problems." While Anne wasn't one to take too greater store in being philosophical, there were of course so many occasions she could point to where the Doctors of both Atlantis and Stargate Command, which included the ships medics as well, had found some of the most unique solutions to the crisis that confronted them. Even personal ones. "She'll be deep under, the lass won't have a clue who is hovering around her. Plus- ." Anne had a point to make.

She relaxed slightly, but only slightly, to know that Kelly would be there. Not that had really met many other of the nurses, but Kelly was probably going to be her favourite always.

Taking the gown from Jennifer, she unfolded it, looking at it with a critical eye and tried not to purse her lips at it. It may have not been as modest as she preferred, but it seemed a lot more comfortable than the borrowed clothing she had been wearing so far she far preferred her robes.

With a little difficulty, Tama undressed down to the just the strips of cloth that constituted underwear for her, her pale skin showing the tale of her short years of training in small scars in scattering spots.

She was trying to work out which way to put on the gown, when her second memory(or split self) showed her the correct manner.

Once dressed, she sat there, feeling very exposed. Her wrists, implants facing her, pressed tightly against her chest, her fingers holding on to the blue stone pendant that she couldn't remove even if she wanted too.

 If she hadn't felt uncomfortable before, she definely did now.

Mike looked at the screens, nodding and studying them as he spoke, “Well, with all the trouble our people seem to get in, we have to be a bit innovative, from time to time.” Then he fell silent for a couple of more minutes, looking intently at the images in front of them before he looked back at Anne.
“From the short bump in I had with Jennifer earlier today,” he said with a warm smile, “I’d say she’s just the right one to convince a reluctant or frightened for that matter, teenager. However – have a look at this...”
Mike turned back to the screen, zoomed in on a small area next to one of the implants, making it fill the entire screen. “This is not going to be as easy as I’ve hoped. This is something completely different than how we tackled the problems we had with incorporating the implants on Bonnie. These implants are merged with her nerve endings in a way I’ve…” he pulled in a deep breath, held it for a second before slowly letting it out, “...unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The metal and the nerve endings are literally fused together. God knows what kind of damage I might cause if I start poking around in there.” He shook his head and turned towards Anne, disappointment evident in his eyes, “I’m sorry, but I don’t think there’s anything I can do at this point.”

"Hmmm, I can see your point there Mike. It is a little disappointing from everyone's point of view especially now since we've managed to psych the girl up for it." Anne stood there for a long moment examining the screen. Then an idea occurred to her when Mike mentioned young Heckman. "You're smarter than you think Doctor. We can replicate Bonnie's kill switch as an off/on switch, then intersect the neural pathways of each implant just below the nape of the neck. That will give us the same result in reality won't it?" At least in her mind that could be the best way to go. Tama won't be able to access the technology unless the switch is turned on remotely.

Looking between the screens and Anne, Mike realized he wasn’t quite following what the other doctor was aiming for. “And by severing the nerves as they exit the spinal cord will gain us… what? I thought the whole idea for this was to remove the actual implants? A kill switch won’t do us any good. Or will it?”

 Jen had began laying out the pre-op anesthetics, a light sedative to relax Tama. It was straight forward, her weight and body mass was taken into consideration, as to her age; despite the fact she looked around 20 or so, she was still virtually a child in metaphysical terms. She had her back turned to the youngster but still could see her in the reflection of the glass faced cabinet in front of her. As the two syringes were laid out neatly, Jen saw Kelly arrive off to her left.

 "Hey sweety." Kelly said in her easy going manner. "How are you feeling, nervous?" Of course the girl was, but it was a standard question, though in this case very sincere.

 Turning around Jen felt relieved now that her theatre nurse had arrived. "Good timing Kelly, could you grab her charts for me while I finish this, also we'll need her blood sugar levels." In reality Tama should have been fasting for at least 12 hours, though Jen knew for a fact that the girl had only snacked lightly and she knew to that because of her make up, she had an extremely fast metabolism.

 "Of course Jen." Kelly reached over the end of the bed grabbing the charts as she did so, leaving them on the prep table in easy reach for Jennifer. Once that was taken care of, Kelly grabbed the glucose kit, sitting beside Tama to try and ease the girl's nerves. "This will just be a scratch Tama, you okay with that?"

He pulled in a deep breath, since the conclusions of that wasn’t very appealing to him, “It will require her to be awake throughout the entire procedure though, so that much for me being able to go in and do it by stealth mode.”

Seeing Kelly put her more at ease, her relaxed it's fiddling with her pendant. A slight smile formed on her lips and her shoulders rise slightly.

"How could I not be... this clothing does not help, they aren't modest."

For an honest question she gave an honest answer. The fine she had changed into was even stranger to her than the clothes she had borrowed. What she wouldn't give to be in one of her tribes. Well not those horrid stiff formal ones, she hated the starched collars of those.

"I've had worse than a scratch before..."

Her eyes rolled slightly, her smile broadened even more. A scratch was nothing to her training injuries or a broken jaw.

"Oh Doctor Keller, I promised my Pai the implants. He wants to study them."

 "You'll get used to it around here Tama. Once you have been fully accepted and placed on a team, you'll be in and out of here often, and as often stripped to your underwear or less." Kelly was straight forward to say the least, but in a kindly way of course. "We always though make sure its by gender, you won't see a man for miles around if and when the need arises....now just a little prick." She pierced the girls index finger with the tiny blood test scalpel, applying a small band aid when she was done. After of course getting her sample which was as expected a very human red. "Didn't hurt did it?" As she was finishing Jen moved over to join them.

 Bunching up her eyebrows, Jen looked keenly at Tama. "That is 'if' we can remove them. I would say though that maybe he should be here during the surgery, what do you think?" It made sense, for if they can't be removed, Radek would at worst have a chance to study them.

Tama Akimoto

"That I am accustomed too, I was always being evaluated, or treated. I.was always smaller than my age mates, I got hurt more than they did. "
Her unused hand rubbed her jaw, remembering having her inner jaw broken by her cousin. Not a fight she would want to ever attempt.

She didn't flinch at the little nick to her finger, but she watched, because it made her more comfortable to see what was happening.

The dark haired head turned though to look at Jennifer, tilting slightly as she thought.

"If he is not busy... I would find comfort in him being there, he seems kind from the short time we have spoken.

 Kelly had to look Tama up and down, trying to imagine this tough young girl getting hurt by anyone, more likely she'd punch their lights out first. Then again, she would learn that eventually when she started to get to know the other women on the base. "Take it from me Tama. If there is one thing I can say about the males on this base, they will make sure you are never harmed. Unless of course its another woman, then they take the sadistic pleasure of watching." She placed the small sample tube in her tray for analysis a little later. "The worst punishment you can expect from any of the medical staff is harsh words if an when you've done something silly like getting injured." At least humor always worked for her.

 By this time Jen was about ready to administer the first shot of the pre-op sedative. She stopped with the syringe in mid air. "Why don't I call Radek down here now before I give you this?"

<<From Gate Room>>

Somehow Reese had managed to make her way back to the infirmary.  This place as still very foreign to her, but she knew that she needed to find Gizmo and make sure the cat hadn't caused too much trouble.  Of course she had no idea if Ruby was still here or had been sent out on a mission.    Reese looked around, not wanting to interrupt anyone when they were busy.

 Even while focusing on the job at hand, Kelly noticed or rather heard footsteps nearby. Glancing through the faint parting of the curtain she saw a woman standing outside in a black flight suit, Dreadnought crew most likely, possibly with an injury. "Excuse me, Tama, Jen." She placed the tray down on the table, slipping outside quietly.

<Nurses Station>

 Her expression relaxed visibly when she saw the woman wasn't injured, at least not visibly. Quickly her eyes fell to the chest patch 'Doctor Reese Prescott MD'. Well that was welcome, maybe the word got through to the SGC finally, although Kelly hadn't seen the latest staffing updates. "Hello ...Doctor. I'm Lieutenant Kelly Roden senior staff nurse. Can I hopefully take it your here to join us and not just visiting?" She was easy on the eye naturally, that seemed to be the way of things with Stargate Command's medical staff.

Reese turned as someone spoke.  She hadn't met Kelly in her previous few minutes here, but that was to be expected.  She hadn't been at Atlantis long before being called back out.  "Please, call me Reese," she smiled.  The blonde shook her head.  "I just got back from a mission and am not completely sure of orders right now.  If you need an extra hand I'll gladly offer it though.  I had come to check on my cat that I had left with Ruby Forester before I left, but Gizmo can wait a bit longer," she smiled.  If they needed help Reese wasn't one to sit back and do nothing.  Not if it was in her power to help.

Tama tried to keep her eyes off the needle, she only managed it when Kelly excused herself.

"Yes... If he isn't busy."

Her eyes dipped a little, she didn't want the brim interfering with his work, but she did want to have family with her. Have someone to reassure her, just as she had always wanted, rather than be expected to just do as she was told.
 
Her Godoma had never been allowed to be with her, she had too many duties, Tama was told.
She couldn't have her here now, but if she could have her Pai, then she wouldn't turn it down.

 "Hmmm, you know Mike I think that may work. Although I'd be happier to at least put her under for a short while just so can attach the transmitter at least. It would also give us the opportunity to see just what we are dealing with if the case is presented to us where we need a plan B. What do you think?" Anne's mind was naturally by nature thinking ahead as she always did.

Mike gave the scan one final look, then nodded as he turned to face Anne, having the anesthetist part of him talking. “Sure, IV Propofol might do the trick. If she has a metabolism just similar to you and me, it’ll put her to sleep within a few seconds and as soon as we stop the infusion, she’ll be awake and lucid within a minute. Used carefully she’ll be able to maintain spontaneous breathing throughout the procedure meaning no need for us to intubate and hook her up to a ventilator… then again if all goes south, we still have the option of having her completely out of it with the push of a button. Literally.”

“Alright…” He pulled in a deep breath and looked down at his flight suite, “I guess I’ll need a change of clothes. Doubt Keller would want me in the OR like this. Where can I find some scrubs?”

 The SGC's 'Old Girl' tapped her bottom lip for a moment with the end of her stethoscope as if she was in deep thought, which of course she was. After a long drawn out minute she weighed back in again. "You see now why I called you in Mike, my old brain would not have come to that conclusion. At least not as swiftly as you did. Very well then, let's call Jennifer in, so we can give her the good news for what it is. "  

 In summary, it was the best possible outcome; there was no other avenue open to them now unless some other brilliant surgeon had something else to offer, which wasn't going to happen. All three of them were fairly much of the same mind now. "Two doors up from here if my memory serves me correctly." Which is where she had to go as well in any case.

“Well, at least we have an idea of how to start, so sure – let’s give her a call.”
Mike wasn’t all to pleased and it probably showed all over him.
There were just too many variables and uncertainties involved. And if it was one treat he shared with most other surgeons world wide, it was the aversion towards surprises. Deal with an upcoming crisis – sure, no problem, but to not really have a plan and play it by the ear when getting in to surgery…
Then again, if Keller and Anne were willing to take the chance and felt confident about this, then at least he could offer his skills in helping them pull this through.
He sighed, “I’ll go and get changed then. Back in a few.”


< Locker room of the Infirmary >

He closed the door to the locker room behind him and as he started to rummage around on the shelves for scrubs his size, he clicked the radio, “Olofsson, Jaworski. Over.”

"Sure leave the old lady to do your job." Anne quipped laconically as she looked over the rim of her glasses, of course she added her standard chuckle at the end.

Now she had to fiddle with that silly radio again, Anne hated the things so much she wished for a good old telephone. Finally she managed to get it working to her satisfaction. "Jennifer its Anne, when you and Tama are ready dear." That should do it.

Mike grinned when he heard the laughter come over the radio. Whatever she was up to, she appeared to have a great time anyway, so his guilty conscience for not being able to join her eased up a bit. "Sounds like I should be asking you the same question!"
He found the shirt and pants he was looking for and started to get changed as he spoke. "But no, no worries. I'm good. Look, I'm sorry, but I got drafted to your infirmary for a... shall we say sort of a consultation, so I'm going to be stuck here for a little while."
With the flight suite neatly folded on one of the benches, he quickly pulled on the scrubs and left the room, "I'll let you know when I'm done here, ok?"

 A moment of freedom Jennifer always took as a reward, even if it was to make 'that' call. "He'll be here Tama, even if I have to drag him down." She knew poor old Radek could be a little squeamish now and then, but this was important to Tama and Radek as well. She pipped her radio. "Radek, its Jennifer. Tama would like you down here please." She kept it brief, it had to be.

 Anne called her then, she only had to pip her radio twice. "We're on our way Anne." She patted Tama on the shoulder. "Ready? You can stay on the gurney Honey, I think with sedative we gave you, your legs are going to be a little like jello." She might have to explain that one.

Reese smiled, glad to know they were pretty informal here.  She didn't know anyone here and she didn't want to accidentally offend anyone.  It seemed that wouldn't be the case though.  A slight smile touched the corners of her lips.  "I can handle it," she assured Kelly.  Not exactly what she had planned when coming to collect Gizmo, but she was a doctor and would never just walk away.

Her nerves were starting to kick in a little, but there was no turning back now. She was committed to this path. It made her smile though at the threat to bring her Pai by force if needed.

More so when she heard him was coming, though nerves came back when Anne said they were ready.

"Jello?"

She queried, though not arguing about staying on the gurney. Tama sledding lie down though, there was still.one thing left to say.

"If, if... If something goes wrong, not that I ...believe it will, but will ...you put on my shoes? Don't let ...my soul linger..."

She wasn't sure if she was making herself understood,nor did she know what the beliefs were of these people. But those emborodiered shoes that she never wore but always carried, even now sat with her clothing, were to ensure her should didn't cling to the living world.

Mike grabbed a green surgical cap as he passed a shelf in the hallway back to Anne. “I promise I’ll call you if disaster strikes Mel. Jaworski out,” he said in an amused tone, far from the formal one one were supposed to use while on radio.
Switching to the Dread frequency, he continued although now in more somber tone, “Forster, Jaworski. Do you copy?”

By the time Mike returned Anne had already scrubbed up, donned scrubs then only to wait for one of the Nurses to assist with gloving up. She took the opportunity as well to lay out the Op trays in her neat order, something that every medic on the planet was familiar with. A good well trained theatre nurse could pick up each instrument blind folded as the Medico asked for them.

"He's on his way Tama." Jenn said cheerfully as she turned the gurney around to begin the short journey to the OR. As she wheeled through the end of the Infirmary she kept up a little chatter. "Jello, its a treat you're going to have after the operation, with ice cream by the way. Its made from the gelatinous goo that binds the strands of certain types of seaweed. Once not long ago us humans used a similiar substance taken from animal bones; though some still use that, its losing its appeal these days." That should be enough for the girl to go on.

 Gaining a few more yards she was about to call Kelly over when she noticed her talking to someone. Pausing for a moment, she started to walk away when Radek appeared quietly as he always did. "Everything is fine Radek. Tama here wanted you to be with her, nothing less than that. Excuse me a minute please." She could leave Tama safely there on the gurney with Radek while she went to see who the visitor was.

 "Oh here you are Jennifer. Doctor Reese Prescott, this is Doctor Keller." She was at ease now, things were falling into place smoothly. "Jen, Doctor Prescott has been posted here from Earth, she just arrived on the Dread, oh and she has a kitty with her to." That would be nice, something familiar from home.

 "Excellent timing Doctor; is it too early to throw you into scrubs?" She extended her hand in greeting. "A cat eh? we could use something to take away the idle hours. Make sure though you have Doctor Olofsson check it out first before you bring her down. She's our resident Vet by the way."

Mike popped his head out in the hallway, “Looks like they’re heading our way now,” before clicking his radio.
 “No, not yet, don’t worry,” he replied to Ruby, “I’ll let you off the hook in a minute. I just need you to do me a favor. Go and have a look in the storage next the OR. Just outside my office. On one of the top shelves we should have an early prototype of Bonnie’s kill switch. You know the one that almost looks like an axial-lead resistor with a switch attached to it? Check the date and see if it’s still sterile, it ought to be, and then have it beamed down to my position in the Infirmary. Ok? Over.”

He looked back at Anne to elaborate his thoughts, “Your drawing made me think; why invent the wheel twice when we already have something that might do the trick for us. Since it’s only temporary, I thought we could at least try it out?”

As soon as the gurney started moving, Tama could feel the effects of the sedative start to hit her, so she decided to lay down. Listening to the description of jello from Jennifer.

She was about to ask if she was going to get the kind made from animal bones, she liked to eat bones...it sounded like she would enjoy it, when just on the edge of her vision she saw her Pai.

She tells twitched a smile, her sapphire eyes having now half closed, but still taking in things around her. She heard Jennifer reassure Radek things were well and then excuse herself.

"Jennifer said... I could... ask for you..."

Tama smiled slightly at his awkwardness, she would felt the same but the sedative was making everything a bit fuzzy for her, but it didn't stop her from laughing at his joke.

"... out of this world...

She repeated back in a murmur, before reaching her hand out towards him in a slightly uncoordinated manner.

"It will be ...and I won't be... The Lady... Protector and I... can eat jello ...with ice cream. We can build things...Without my head going in into them... I don't like it...  I can't control it."

Now there was some lateral thinking on Mike's part. A vivid memory of young Heckman passed through Anne's thoughts as he mentioned her, eighteen hours straight of surgery between her and Carrie Svensson, then more again three times after that. Not something one is likely to forget quickly. She was going to ask him where he got it, though it wasn't necessary as Anne recalled Mike did some consultation on the case during and after anyway. "It can't hurt, plus I don't think we could muster up the parts needed in a hurry Mike, though I'm sure Rodney McKay would argue that point."

Anne looked up the hallway to see the gaggle of girls taking their sweet time. "Hustle up ladies, we can't wait all day. Kelly! On the double, my arms will fall off before I'm gloved!" Still Anne, she wouldn't change even if she were one hundred years old.

 Anne's yelling helped to set the pace, strangely the air was light with a touch of not quite merriment, though it wasn't grim either. This was a time of release for Tama, one way or the other she would be free of those things, hopefully. Still one never knew what could come with alien technology. "We're coming Anne!" Not shouting, that wasn't Jennifer, but not too timid either. "Radek, if you mask up, you can stay with Tama if you like." That would be comforting at least.

 "Over there Reese.." She pointed to a room off to the side. "You'll find fresh scrubs, and welcome to Atlantis by the way."

 Kelly wasn't a slacker, the moment the Surgeon General let loose she was off. Almost skidding to a halt, she grabbed clean gloves along the way, slipping a pair on herself, then assisting Anne with hers. That done she had to go to the scrub room to change as well. It was all go now.

“No,” Mike shook his head, “That’s pretty much what I thought as well. If we had more time, McKay might have been able to McGyver something, but I figured this might work for all intents and purposes right now.”
There was a small flash of light and the requested item appeared on a table next to him. “Nice!” Mike grinned and clicked his radio, “Thank you Ruby, I’ll call you if there is anything else. Jaworski out.”

He put his cap on and with a face of recognition he nodded towards Reese as she entered, “Hey. Looks like our paths cross sooner rather than later. We’re about to pick out a few implants from a Pegasus native. Didn’t know you were in on this as well.”

Tama Akimoto

Her eyes closed, she wasn't dead to the world as yet, a nudge or a voice could easily get her to open her eyes and talk if needed. Tama was relaxed, any fears she had were not accessible to her sedated mind.

"Waiting with jello...bones...ice cream..."

A little mumble came from her mouth, vaguely aware of the voices around her.

Always the appreciative one, Anne thanked Kelly with a courteous nod a second before she pulled a surgical mask over her face. She then walked casually to stand beside Tama's gurney, looking down on the lass she hoped that the face covering with the glasses over the top wasn't a frightening aspect for her. "You'll be fine dear." Giving her a friendly pat on the shoulder, with a frown unseen at Radek. "Chicken." She mumbled under breath.

"Mike, I doubt though in all honesty even the great 'Doctor' could come up with the goods in this case, we are after all dealing with something yet unknown. Lets pray that device works if and when we need it. Right then, Jennifer who is doing the anesthesia?"

 Jen leaned across the gurney, she did actually hear Anne and she was quite sure that Radek did as well. Tama was just about out of it to, so wouldn't be aware of what passed. "Radek, for your daughter please. I promise you it would be grisly and if we need to do anything drastic, you can look away or leave then." All that at barely a whisper. "That would be Doctor Prescott,  Anne." She added a little more loudly.

Reese looked up when she heard a voice she actually recognized.  A smile touched her ruby lips.  'Well all be.  Nice to see a face I recognize," she grinned, but then shook her head.  "I just got back and kinda got pulled in.  So this will be very new to me."

She glanced over at Anne and than Jen.  "Got it.  Is there anything I should know about her before I get the anesthesia ready?"  She just wanted to make sure that the the Pegasus native would require the same amount as a human from earth.

As Aria lightly pushed Dylan into the room, she responded as she stood by the doorway, "Wait a mo, Dysun. So, who's here available if someone's available. I got a patient for you," she looked around and made a quiet side humorous comment, "She's a big one."

Dylan felt the light push and scowled at Aria with a growl. She was feeling a bit perturbed to be treated like a prisoner or being ordered around.

Leaving Anne to talk to Keller and letting them tend to their patient, Mike quietly replied to Reese as he put a mask on and then started to scrub his hands and arms, “Guess that’ll be two of us then. Relying on the rookies here, uh?” The grin he had behind his face mask was reflected in his eyes, “Sometime they aren’t very picky…”
His interest turned back towards Anne though as he donned a surgical gown and gloves and overheard her question about attending anesthetist.
Mike looked between Reese and Keller. ‘Seriously?’ She was going to let a general surgeon handle the anesthesia? Sure, they all had to step out of their comfort zone from time to time and become inventive and all that, but this?

His decision to take the back seat until their patient was under just flew out of the window and he walked over to stand just behind Keller and said in a low tone, hoping, but not being sure of that Anne caught what he said, “I might be out of line here doctor Keller, but why are you letting a general surgeon handle the anesthesia part of this? I believe I’m far better suited for that than her with my anesthesiology training. Anne and I made some plans, but if we all just take two minutes before doing anything else, she can brief Reese, I’ll have a chance to read up the girl’s physiology and then we can move along with the right people on the right places, ok?”

 The tall German looked up slowly, she wasn't fond of Australian accents, they to her sounded rather unrefined. Still she had to admit most of those from that southern land were decent hard working people, she simply didn't like the way they spoke. Recognising the rank on the woman's chest patch and the fact she was the Dreadnought's XO, Helga by way of courtesy stood erect to answer. "Commander all our doctors are currently in theater at the moment. If its a medical issue and from I can see.." She looked the other woman over from top to bottom. "...it does not appear to be urgent, perhaps I can help you."

"Welllllll..." Jennifer shrugged as she to headed for the scrub recess. "....I'm just wingin it Mike, I mean there are four General Surgeons here and I was under the impression that you would be lead on this.." She wasn't big on protocol, nor was Jen renown for being that organised as she normally only had Carson, herself and one other junior surgeon who was out tending to the Athosians today. "...I'll go along with whatever works best." As she said the last, Jen slipped off her base jacket to begin the three minute washdown of her arms and hands.

 While all this was taking place, Kelly made herself busy by making sure everything was in place. She was gowned and masked, gloved and psyched up for the experience. She noticed Radek doing everything he could to back out of it, she was having none of it. "I'll make a deal with you Doctor Zelenka. Stay upright and I won't do your physical next time you return from off world." Kelly was known as Miss Meanie when it came to those. As placid and sweet as she was, she turned into a demon when it came to giving needles and physicals.

 Next was Tama. Kelly wheeled the prep tray over to the side of the gurney, giving the girl a reassuring squeeze of the shoulder. "You'll do great kiddo. I'm going to put your catheter in now and with all that juice in you, you're not going to feel a thing." Finding a decent vein wasn't an issue, the girl was as healthy as Kelly's Piebald back home. The catheter in, she placed a surgical tape over it to hold it in place.

Reese rolled her eyes a bit as she finished pulling her gloves on.  "It does seem that way," she smiled.  "Sometimes you can't afford to be picky."  They had all been rookies at one point in time, she just prayed nothing would go wrong this time around.

Reese turned as Mike spoke up.  He had a point there and she would step back if that was what they figured was the best.  "If you think that is for the best, Mike, by all means I'll take a back seat," she said.  This was very new to her and she wanted what was best for the patient.

With mild amusement reaching her eyes, Anne stood there placidly with her hands loosely across her chest. As a young Doctor so many years ago, she was enamored with the personalities of many television show Doctor characters. Sherman T Potter being perhaps the one she attuned to more than any other. So much so she often took on his persona as she did now. "Make up your minds kids. I can easily go find a nice place in the sun with a good cuppa." She was leaving in Mike's hands, there was no getting out of it for him now.

Mike looked at Anne, why was she making things so hard? She was, if nothing else the ranking officer for the military as well as the civilian medics. He heaved a heavy sigh and decided to take thing in his own hands. 'Sue me or court martial me later. We need to move!'
“Alright,” he said as he tore off the surgical gown, rolled it in to a ball and tossed it in the near by waste bin. “Anne, you know our plans, you take the lead on this, at least to start with. Jennifer…” If she wanted to be on first name basis with him, then fine, sure, “You’re first assistant. Reese, you’re with me on 'the other side of the curtain', because if my gut feeling is right, this might turn out to be a tricky one.” At no time, Mike either raised his voice or used a harsh tone, it was more a matter of stating the fact kind of voice.
Taking the chart he sat down by the head end of the OR table and quickly started reading up on the info they had so far on Tama, leaving the three doctors to sort things out for themselves for the next minute or so.

Hearing someone speak with a German accent, Aria turned to the doctor and responded as she placed her arms behind her back, "Nothing too urgent, miss. This woman is not from around here." she briefly moved her hand from behind her back and placed her open hand up toward Dysun continuing, "As she is an Alien, she requires a brief medical check up. You know the works and such."

She paused thinking over her head to make sure she didn't miss anything. Then she exclaimed, "Oh. She calls herself Dylan Sun. Nickname is Dysun. Don't wory about her. She may be all tough and grouchy on the exterior," she bent close and whispered as she covered part of her mouth, "but, she really is a teddy be-har." The last part she said with a strange sort of flow with her heavy Australian accent. She hoped it didn't offend the German doctor. She seemed nice.

As she returned her arm behind her back, she remained the stand by position as her eye rolled to the top of her head and glanced at Dysun. She was starting to enjoy picking on her. Maybe she was enjoying this too much?

 Surprise crossed Jennifer's face, she wasn't quite used to being told what to do on her own turf, but then again in the short time she had known Mike, she trusted him to a point. He was still a male after all. "That will suit me. Very well then Anne, I'll do what I can to make it easy on you. If at any time you need my hands just say so okay" That was the best she could offer, Jen was still a little concerned as to just how delicate this might be.

Heaving a rather huge sigh with the acceptance of her fate, Anne while not all too happy about it, she knew in the end that Mike was right; to a degree. She felt just slightly overwhelmed as well, the look in those eyes told the story. 'I'm on the wrong side of sixty, my hands are not as steady as they once were.' The sad lament of many a fine surgeon; though this by nature wasn't the most difficult of course, she had done far more complicated than what they were anticipating with Tama and only recently to. Memories of Bonnie flooded her mind, giving rise to a pit of acid in her stomach.

"Very well then. Mike do what you need to do, Jen we'll start with a survey of her wrists, right one first. Reese as per Mike's request-" She tilted her head in that direction. "- I want the last images we have as well. Kelly, better get the hardware lass, we may well be doing some drilling, so I'll need two number four plates and the associated screws, if we need to attach Mike's device, I don't want it floating around loosely. Lets get at it people."  She realised as she was speaking that Granny still had her bark.

Reese nodded as Mike made the decision of who needed to be where.  "Right behind you, Mike," she said, turning to follow him.  she wasn't going to question as she was the newbie in all this and just wanted what was best for the patient.  She moved to follow Mike, glancing back at the patient.  Hopefully this turned out routine and she would be fine.

‘Ohfercryin… You have GOT to be kidding me!’ Mike almost groaned as he clicked the radio. “Jaworski here. Yes, I am in fact in the middle of something here and it might be a bit of a difficulty to rush things. Exactly when do we head out?  Over”
He had feeling their departure was sooner rather than later and started scribble down notes about how to handle the anesthesia, most definitely not being happy about this whole situation. When he was done, he handed to note pad over to Reese.
“Ok, sedation 101, quick and dirty. From what I understand, Tama has a very high metabolism. Pros – she’ll be out as a light within a few seconds once we give her the drug. Cons – she’ll probably need about twice as much of it as you or I would. Our plan is to give her just enough to sleep on, not making it a general anesthesia with the need for an intubation and assisted breathing, meaning Anne will have to use a local anesthesia as well since the Propofol doesn’t have any pain killing effects, ok?”
Mike pointed at the pad. “As long as we keep a close eye on her vitals, this isn’t exactly rocket science, take it slow and everything will be fine.”
Pulling in a deep breath he shot a fast look at Tama on the gurney and Radek. The latter having a bit of a greenish color, but that could also just be a reflection of all the green/blue fabric in the room and mumbled  “…and I’d keep a close eye on him as well and act fast, putting his head between his knees if he starts swaying too much…”

The radio cracked to life in her ear as Aria exclaimed. Tapping it, she silenced it as she spoke to the doctor, "Ah, looks like duty calls. I gotta be going. Thanks miss. Dysun, behave yourself in front of the nice lady." Aria responded wagging her finger a little.

Dylan scowled at her not saying anything. Aria backed while giving her the look. Turning around, she left as she smirked enjoying herself. Tapping her radio, she opened the two way as she responded, "On my way, Commander. Five by five. On your six. Uhh, I mean, oh never mind. Be there in ten Bruiser out." Tapping the radio, she exclaimed slapping herself on the face. She had a long day apparently.

Meanwhile, after watching Aria leave, Dylan turned back to the doctor and responded with a silent grunt as she followed her directions.

 Over hearing just a little of what occurred didn't change a thing for Jen at least. Mike had outlined what needed to be done and that was all she needed to have the courage to press ahead for Tama's well being first and foremost. She bent down and whispered to the girl, knowing full well that she may or may not understand. "Everything will be fine Honey. You'll be as good as new when we're done."

"Anne, I've got it." She had to say that, for that was the very thoughts in her own head. "Mike we'll be okay." She reassured him.

Reese glanced over as Mike's radio crackled to life.  Oh that was not good at all.  Losing one of the team could be bad.  Reese studied the note that Mike handed to her, making sure she listened to everything he had to say.  She nodded as she listened.  "Okay, that makes sense.  Talk about being thrown under the bus," she sighed.  She glanced over at Radek.  He could pose a problem and she'd keep a close eye on him.

Tama Akimoto

Everything being spoken to her, around her and beyond her were just sounds, indistinguishable from the other sounds. In her drugged state, she was just aware of people around her, relaxed and free of her anxiety.

She heard Jen, but she couldn't fully comprehend, her sapphire eyes flickered open for the briefest moment, her mouth murmured something in her other native tongue, before she went back into her hazy state.

No fear, no worry, just on the edge of dreams.

“Copy that. I’ll be there. Jaworski out,” was Mike’s very short reply. Knowing his XO had been in charge of the Infirmary for the last 24 hours and no idea whether she’d been able to have some rest or not, he really felt he needed to get back before the Dread left orbit. There was no way he was going to let Rosseli be the one in charge while Coleman had her time off. No way…
Mike grabbed a syringe with the drug and slowly started to inject it in to the girls IV port. He wasn’t very happy about not having had the opportunity to at least say ‘Hi, I’ll take good care of you,’ to her before putting her to sleep, but sometimes there wasn’t just time for politeness.

When the girl one minute later was vast asleep and non-responsive to him, he looked at Anne and gave her a nod, “She’s all yours.”
Her vitals were all stable and her breathing was slow and deep, all according to plan.
Mike turned towards Reese and spoke in a very low tone, “Keep the infusion pump at the rate I’ve set. Push ‘stop’ when you want to wake her up and as I said, I recon she’ll be awake within about a minute. Lucid, probably not quite since she was pretty doped up before I took over, but still, she’ll wake up quickly enough. Anything else you need to know before I take my leave? Any questions on my notes?”

Was she ready to dive into this again? Anne had only expected to pop into Atlantis for a day or so, share a nice cuppa with Jen and Richard, do her inspection tour then off to the Alpha site. She never in her wildest dreams thought she'd be doing critical micro surgery again at any time in her career. With Mike now leaving, all that changed. "Thanks tremendously for your help Mike, I for one are extremely grateful. Now you run off and be certain to take care lad. Oh and keep your head down to won't you?" She wanted to give him a small hug, though OR protocol forbid it. Later then for sure.

Reese wasn't expecting to be thrown into a surgery after only being at Atlantis for a few hours.  She knew as a doctor though she should have expected things like this.  She glanced through Mike's notes, making sure everything made sense in her mind before nodding.  "I think I got it.  You left pretty detailed ones.  thanks for that and it was good seeing you again.  Hopefully we'll meet again," she smiled, a bit sad to see Mike leave already.  He was the only one there she had met before and could claim to at least know a little bit.

 Once that door was closed, the work began. All that was left was for them all to say their last but not final goodbyes to Mike, then it would be full on. For Jen it had been almost five months since she had done anything near to be considered surgery, other than a ingrown toenail removal, one appendectomy and the one child birthing for an Athosian, it had for her been incredibly quiet. This was going to bring her back to with a thump. "Mike, we've got this; be safe, we'll see you when you get back." If she was honest with herself, Jennifer would have far preferred that he stay, alas she had no say in it.

 Shaking her head with even more amusement, Kelly tilted her head towards Radek as Mike was about to leave. "No Doctor Zelenka, not yet. In fact we've only just begun and I am sure you'd love to stand next to Doctor MacGregor to assist wouldn't you?" Cheeky bugger she was, Kelly had the ability, rare that it was; to make almost anyone smile. Some say she could make a Wraith laugh if she wanted to.

< OR section of the Infirmary >


“Alright. Have fun.” Mike looked from Reese, to Jen and then with a grin behind the mask and nod towards Anne, “I always  keep my head down Anne.”
He got up from his chair by the head end and walked over towards Zelenka, speaking in a low and calm voice in an attempt to calm the slightly jittery doctor. “She's doing just fine. If I were you, I’d take a seat over there.” Mike pointed to the chair he’d just occupied. . “It’ll keep you out of harms way as well as out of sight for whatever Anne and her team does, but you’d still be able to be close to Tama.” ‘…and Reese will be able to keep an eye on you.’
He gave him a pat on the shoulder and with a “See you guys later,” he quickly left the OR.

When outside, Mike quickly discarded the cap and mask in the nearest waste bin, and after having picked up his flight suite from the locker room, he clicked the radio.
“Dreadnaught, Jaworski,” then pondered whether to report to the med bay or the bridge, but quickly settled for the latter, “Get me to the bridge please.”
Two seconds later, the Dread CMO disappeared in a flash of light.

>> Mike to the Dread >>

To Kelly Roden and Mike

Zelenka looked at the young nurse a little wide eyed and  with a little uneasy smile, then over to Mike as he showed him the chair

"Thank you, i appreciate this, i certainly dont want to get to near, or in the way"


Zelenka watched as the man left

He looked over at Anne and in a stage whisper said

"If i pass out, kick me outta the way"

He looked over at the nurse and gave her a nervous grin

"You had best do that Mike." Anne murmured under her breath. To her, the staff under her command were like her own children, she knew each and every one of them as well as she knew her own kids and she cherished them as much as well.

Once Mike was gone, it was go time. She noted the time on the wall clocks, one showed as normal, the other would be the time passed, the 'counter'. One of the nurses would set that to 'start' the instant they began. "If you pass out Radek, I'll simply step over you." She joked, reassuring herself that he'd better not do that either. "Very well then ladies, take your places. Doctor Prescott, you can start the IV anytime now, Jennifer we'll begin with tracing the connections to her wrists." That would mean a physical opening, one at a time, the most telling part of what they were about to do.

As good as Mike's notes were Reese would have rather he had stayed.  She knew though that one didn't always have that option.  She watched as Mike walked out of the room before turning to his notes.  What a way to be introduced to Atlantis.  After this she was going to be doing a lot more studying.  Poor Gizmo would have a fit she was sure.  She looked up, her eyes the only thing visible behind the mask as Anne spoke.  Reese moved around to make sure the settings were still set to where Mike had left them before starting the IV.  "All good," she said.

Dylan stared at the German doctor with a wary eye. Even though she was a combat medic herself, she never trusted doctors. She does her own medical diagnosis and trusts her own results. Being immune to almost all diseases or sicknesses is a plus as she almost never had to heal herself. She was almost always healthy especially for her implants she was born with.

Following her instructions, Dylan went to her seat and removed her outer garment leaving behind her covered tank bra and shorts. On her defined physique was several tattoos, some outer implants and scars she received in the past. She was a warrior being a combat marine in a previous life before becoming a traveler.

Keeping her silence, she stared at Helga feeling neither emotions. Just a simple, cold feeling because she didn't know her. Only if the nurse asks her a question, then Dylan will speak. But for now, she will simply observe her through her small, invisible ocular implants. Her eyes were real, but some of her pupils have strains of implantation that aids her in scanning life forms or planets. It sends information to her arm that accesses a terminal or specialized frames that help her learn her surroundings a little better.

Right now, it was just scanning the nurse.

 There was no count, it wasn't needed. Tama was already out by the time Kelly hit the timer clock remote. Jen looked up, noting the hour of the day, then repeated it verbally for everyone. "Four sixteen PM. Kelly start the sterilisation please." It first it was slow going, it always was like this. She glanced at Anne and Reese. "Keep her BP below 120 over 80, I don't want to rush this." She was nervous

 Taking Jennifer's cue, Kelly began the swab down after covering Tama with the appropriate covers, ones that had holes in them to expose her forearms. Other than her head, she was now completely covered and the iodine wash gave her exposed arms an eerie reddish yellow hue. She reached over to turn the display screen around on a better angle for the doctors, the last X-Rays and CT scans popped up immediately.

<Examination enclosure>

 "You've had a hard life." Helga commented as she took note of Dylan's obvious encounters over what must have been a few years. "Would you like to talk about it? I find it makes things go much faster and easier for both of us." The stethoscope was up and soon she was checking the woman over as swiftly as she could. A camera was at hand so she could photograph the various identifying marks such as the scars and tattoos. Being a former model in her younger days before she got the medical calling, it was amusing to her that no matter where humans came from or how advanced, their underwear was all pretty much the same.

"We're good to go then people." There was of course little for Anne to do other than assist, or to step in if Jennifer thought she was struggling. At this point her primary role was guidance with some added consultation. She could though begin the proceedings at the very least. Taking up a surgical marker pen, as she studied the CT scans, Anne traced a 'T' on the back of each hand, the lines of incision. So far that was easy.

Reese took a step back.  For the moment her part was done.  Although she would need to keep a close eye on the sedation and apparently Radek as well as he looked ready to faint.  Mike hadn't been kidding.  She glanced at Mike's notes in her hand, making sure she had covered everything for the moment being.

Dylan stared at the nurse. She was doing the medical routine stuff like touching her with the cold stethoscope and taking pictures of her various marks. It was routine. Even Dylan knew that. The nurse asked the question, so of course Dylan just stared while wondering what she wanted to know. Opening her mouth, Dylan finally spoke her first phrase, "What would you like to know?" There was a hint of accent in her voice that was almost heavy but strong. Almost alien but cold.

Of course, it was short, concise but confusing but to the point. Dylan had a lot in her plate and a lot that she won't share but only to those who needed to know something about her. Dylan wasn't the "sharing type". She more or less would rather obey a direct order from her CO than be involved in a casual conversation. The nurse was nice, but Dylan kept her expression the same and void of any changes. She didn't want to say anything to offend her.

 "Golly." Jennifer swallowed deeply. Not that she didn't have the skills or possess the ability, no this was merely because she was about to do surgery on a young girl who for the sake of the calendar was barely four years old but yet a fully grown woman. Jen had done far more intricate surgery in her career so far, more than many MD's her age at least. "Right I'm going in Anne, Kelly keep the suction close." Going in? She always wanted to say that.
 
 
(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Nurse%20Kelly%20temp%20sig_zpsskg5n4kl.jpg)

 The hand came up suction at the ready as Jen took that first incision, at that point so far Tama was normal as can be, red blood line the first cut until that point at which Jennifer had exposed the connection to the wrist implants. She gasped with Jennifer when she saw what lay beneath the skin.

 In slight shock Jen pulled her hand away, for as Kelly used the suction it was obvious to anyone they were not going to be going much further than this other than to close up. "Damn it! I was hoping this wasn't going to be the case, Anne can you see? Look, the synapses are fused to both bone and sinew, the only way we could remove the connections would be to amputate at the wrists. God....I hope you and Mike had a plan 'B' because all I can do now is close up." She was angry, not because of what she saw, but because she more or less promised Tama that they could do this.

<Examination enclosure>

 She was almost done other than the obligatory X-rays and so on, that could of course be done later. Helga did notice especially the tattoo on the woman's shoulder, that stood out as it was almost identical to the commonly accepted symbol for medics back on Earth. She had a gold one on her lapel in fact. "Oh, anything really. Perhaps we could start with your tattoo, I see we share something in common." She lifted the left lapel with one finger so that her pin shone brighter in the light.

Dylan looked at her tattoo and offered a grunt. With a shrug, she flicked her wrist and coolly stared back at the nurse with her response, "I was a combat medic. Still am."

There was a lot about her past that she would rather keep hidden away locked. Most of them were sad and it wouldn't do Dylan any good to reminisce on the old glory that was best left behind. All she could do was look forward and continue to survive as much as she could before her end which to her would be a long time. Between the two, Dylan was much older than the nurse. She just didn't look it.

Keeping her back straight and her hands resting on the bed, she kept her face expressionless and inquired, "Are we done here?"

Even if Dylan was a medic, she still had a hard time sitting around and being an actual patient if a nurse looked her over. It just made her uncomfortable in this setting. It wasn't anything to do with Helga. She was a nice nurse. It had something to do with her personal distaste for doctors and nurses especially when she's being checked over by them. She had personal reasons of her own she wanted to keep to herself.

However, as she observed the nurse, she silently hinted that they could talk anywhere else that's not the examination room.

"Don't panic kiddo, we did in fact come up with a plan B. Close her up Jen, we'll need to let her wake and rest for a bit." Anne had a hunch this might be the case, her eyes looked back towards the radiology room where Mike's little device still sat in its sterile container. "Ease her back slowly would you dear," she cautioned Reese, then, "we'll still need her partially out of it yet awake for what we're about to do. Jen, Kelly once you've finished here I'll talk you both through it; Reese as soon as you're satisfied she semi lucid, join us please." She stripped her gloves off promptly as she began walking slowly in thought towards the other room.

Reese nodded.  "I'll be there soon."  She glanced at Mike's notes to make sure she was doing everything correctly.  Once she was sure things were how they should be and Tama would be waking up slowly she moved to join  the others.  "She should be awake momentarily."

 Breathing in deeply Jennifer sighed. So okay, lets do this another way she thought; what exactly was Anne and Mike's plan she wondered? Looking down at Tama she could see that her eyelids were moving slightly, ever so slightly and that was a good sign so far. They needed to hold her just on the edge. "Ookay then Anne I'll bite. What's the plan?" She didn't mean to sound short, she hoped the older woman would understand her anxiety right now.

 "I'll go and set up the portable X-Ray in case we need it again." Kelly stepped back to the right distance, stripped off her gloves as she left the OR for the room nearby. She stopped though at the chair where Radek sat. "You okay Doctor Zelenka?" She asked, so far he hadn't passed out or anything.

 "We are." That was about as thorough as it gets without Jennifer doing it herself, which she generally didn't of late leaving it mostly to either Helga or Kelly in the first instance unless of course some male got uppity about it, then Jen was called in to sort them out. "I thought as much. As I said we seem to share a lot in common. My last five years before coming here was in a war zone back home. As you would appreciate they are not fond memories." She wasn't sure what came next, so she had to ask. "Were you to return to Mister Woolsey after this?"

Tama Akimoto

Awareness crept into her mind, from absolute nothingness and void, came sound, but no sensations...She was comfortably numb to that all.

Tama could hear the sound, but processing it was another thing all together. No she wasn't at that point of awareness to give things meaning. She was creeping up on the edge where a significant sound or movement would tip the see saw of awareness to temporarily consciousness.

This was a blissful, peaceful moment for her that gave way to a brief sigh from her mouth.

Anne noticed Tama's REM as well, well within the green zone; tough kid she thought. "Radek care to join us as well if you would, we may need your help." With that she walked over to the table top nearby, by passed it completely to cut Kelly off as she headed to X-ray. "Lieutenant we have the images we need. There is a small sterile bag sitting on the desk from  Doctor Jaworksi, bring it to me please."

Then swinging back she leaned on the table top as she returned to that position. "This is what we had in mind." She brought up the last images of Tama's spinal X-rays, particularly that near the apex of her shoulder and neck. She overlaid that with the 3-D image from the CT scan. "See here, the junction where the nerves from the arm extend up into the spinal cord? Right there." She jabbed with her slender finger. "We'll put in a remote blocker. Basically its the same one we used for Brownwyn Heckman and Jen a much newer version than that you used on Colonel Hasluck. We use a junction, bypass the synapse endings and if all goes well we can switch her on and off. This is why I needed her semi awake, we need to test the damned thing before we close her up. Any questions?" She was confident Reese would be the first on the table with that request.

Reese moved from her spot once she was sure everything was still working as it should be and moved over to where the others had gathered.  She studied the x-rays, trying to follow what Anne was saying.  She blinked a couple times, not sure she had heard right.  "Wait a minute," she said, looking at the others.  "I don't quite understand."  She didn't really know the names Anne had named or their whole stories.  She had heard of them but hadn't studied up on all the cases yet.  "Shut her on and off?  She's not a machine."

Radek stood up, he was a little nervous, what on earth could Anne need him for, but, he was also curious, so he approached the table and waited to do what Anne wanted of him, he trusted her and hoped that she trusted him.

 Obviously Reese needed to be brought up to speed and quickly. "Anne before I say yes we need to fill in Reese, Radek please chip in if I get anything wrong." Silly thing to say, of course he will.

 She sucked in her breath once again, knowing she was guilty of doing that repeatedly in the last little while. Glancing quickly for a moment out the door to ensure there were no other staff around she began. "Tama came to us a few days ago via another race we've just met. Though when I say just met, that only applies to Pegaus; apparently back home in the Milky Way we've known this beings for over six months. They call themselves the El'Dari, meaning the Old Ones. I've not seen them yet but I've seen photos of them and when I say they look astoundingly beautiful I mean it." Jen took a breath.

 "Apparently Tama was aware of this race from her own people, at some point in time they were known to one another; she fled her own homeworld because of what they were doing to her, these wrist devices are just one of them. Machine Reese? No not quite but she is a blending of beings; she was made, physically she is only four years old and these things attached to her wrists enable her to interact with things, like computers." She left that stand for a while then continued. "Richard Woolsey has told us that before Tama can be granted complete freedom if she wishes to stay with us, we have to find a way to disconnect the neural implants. What Anne and Mike have proposed will do that."

 Kelly stood there staring. Yes she knew about sixty percent of what Jennifer had related, but not all of it. "Poor kid." She then wandered off to gather that which Anne asked for, returning in a few minutes. "This ma'am?" She held it out for her.

Dylan shrugged responding only once more, "I don't know."

Honestly, at this point, Dylan was just waiting for orders. She was out of place in here. Isolated from her peers. The Travelers were far away from her now and all her friends were dead. It might be possible that Dylan would probably remain here for the time being, but she didn't know to what extend it will be.

Dylan was here to be cleared by medical. After that, she doesn't know what else she will do.

Radek listened intently to  Jennifer before he said anything, he coughed and pushed up his glasses.

"I doubt that what Mr Woolsey had to say influenced Tama in any way, I do know that she was adamant that they should be removed, and as such, we should respect those wishes, however, what Anne is proposing is an on off switch, i cannot say if Tama would be against this or not as this was not proposed at the time, so, as her father, at this time, i will go with Anne, and if, when she awakes Tama is against this, then we can continue with the full removal of them".
We have to consider that this was done to her without her permission, so we must give her a choice, dont you agree?"

Sagely Anne moved her head up and down in approval at both Radek and Jennifer's explanations; it was after all as good as it will be, plus the simple truth. Though she had to be sure on one thing. "Very well then. I advise that we wake her, for a few moments enough so that she understands the difficulty we face, then as she will still be semi anaesthetised we simply administer a local in the neck shoulder area to insert the module.

Reese listened to the explanation, nearly scratching her head in wonder.  Okay, she had a lot of reading to catch up on if she was going to be stationed here.  Oh well, she couldn't change that now.  She would just have to trust the others to know more of what was going on.  She finally nodded.  'Thank you for explaining that.  Give me just a sec and I can get her a bit more coherent."  Reese hurried over to adjust the dials and gauges, letting Tama wake up a bit more without becoming fully alert.  They still wanted to be able to do the procedure once Tama gave her input.

 With nothing more to do now than partially wake Tama up, just enough so she is semi-lucid, Jennifer to nodded in full agreement. That was what she loved about being with the Stargate Program, nowhere else in her experience did people work so well together. "Go ahead then Reese, this is all but done now apart from that last step." Which she hoped would work.

Tama Akimoto

Her awareness of her surroundings changed as her sedation was lightened further. Her sense of her form, prone and supine, became more tangible, though she felt no pain or discomfort.

 Sounds and light through her eyelids became more noticeable to her, she felt the urge to follow them, to find where they came from despite feeling a little groggy.

Slowly the iridescent sapphire eyes opened slightly, her head rolled to try and take in what was around her.

"Nomatc na tae Pai-nof?"

"I only recognise one word    and that is Pai, that is me, maybe, and i am just guessing, she is asking have we finished"

"Thanks Radek." Anne mumbled, basically being put on the spot. Although admittedly with Mike gone it was her show now. "Kelly, I'm sorry lass I wasn't ignoring you, thanks." Being older she was more than entitled to be a little forgetful now and then. Anne picked up the device in the sealed bag so that everyone could see it, especially Tama in her semi-awaken state.

"Tama lass-" She then very gently went onto explain the reason why the wrist interfaces could not be removed, how they were fused to the bone and only radical surgery could even get near to what she wanted. Then after apologising several times Anne explained to Tama how they were going to circumvent the technology by placing a blocker at the neural cortex at the base of her neck, how it could be remotely turned on and off. "- so I hope you understand what we face dear." There was a sadness in her eyes, one that was genuinely palpable.

Reese finished the adjustments she needed to make before stepping back around.  Now all she could do was wait.  A slight smile touched her lips though when it seemed Tama was coming around just enough to know what was going on.  She listened as Anne reexplained what needed to be done, shuddering a bit.  It sounded like it had to be done, but that didn't mean it would be pretty.  Poor Tama.  Hopefully this came out alright and the girl could get on with a normal life.

 Listening to Anne reminded her all too well of those lectures the then visiting Surgeon gave at John Hopkins what seemed so long ago. Anne even then was regarded as one of the worlds leading trauma surgeons and as Jennifer found out when she got to know the older woman, a rather deft hand as cake baker as well. That made her smile, as she received a number of rather helpful lectures on that field of expertise from her as well. Anne didn't leave anything out, she was concise and to the point, so much so that even in Tama's state she would understand. "So Tama, you can see the dilemma we face." That was added to enhance what Anne had told her.

 "Don't even think about it ma'am, I understand." She should, her own mother was around Anne's age and much the same in the forgetful department.  She looked over at Reese, it looked to her as if she too was feeling the anxiety of all of this. "It'll be okay." She said quietly to her.

Tama Akimoto

It took her a moment or two to let the grogginess to lift a little, she was still calm and slightly out of it, but her mind was clear enough to process everything that was being said. It was rather more the translation I'm her he'd from English to her native tongue.

For a time she remained quite, processing everything with care and slight sluggishness.
Eventually she came to her decision, though heard that it was.

"Without my hands, I cant fight, I can not wield my fans. I need them, I will not be helpless ever again. Perhaps with this new way, I will be able to learn control...May be I can put it use or maybebe leave it turned off forever, but I will must be able to fight when they come for me."
Each word was carefully thought out, slowly spoken the edge of concentration she needed to translate while trying to keep her of herself at bay. Her accent flirted between her natural one and one a kin to Zelenka's.

"I want just to be free... to choose,to be allowed to choose my destiny like this always"

He smiled at her reassuringly

The kid was bright, Anne had no doubts of that. More to the point she had been able to fight through the remnant anesthesia to give quite a decent answer. Anne being who she was then, merely nodded (that was possibly due to her Scot's blood and the need to be frugal in all things, though he dear old Grandfather often said that was all concocted BS). "Put her back under then Reese. We'll begin the moment her vitals stabilise, I'm looking for around 110 over 65 or thereabouts."

Reese was surprised by how coherent Tama was.  Mike had certainly been right in his notes.  No wonder they needed to watch her vitals carefully.  Reese nodded in answer in Anne.  "On it."  She moved back over and turned the machine back up to where Mike had it set originally.  It seemed to be the best place to keep it while making sure Tama stayed under enough for the others to complete the procedure.

 That was how it went, fairly quickly and quite more easier than Jen had expected. So for now she was a spectator and one who would be paying very close attention, because it was this little device that was so lacking when she had been the primary surgeon who had worked on Colonel Hasluck just two years ago. Not that it was needed, the many only had some fairly rudimentary 'modifications' done to him, but one of those was as done to Bronwyn Heckman, an auxillary brain so to speak. "Its your court Anne, I'll be here as your second and to watch and learn. So lets get this done while we can."

It made him recall a time he tried to peek over and around his mum and dad when they went past a certain shop, they had tried to hide him from it and he tried his damndest to see, of course now he knew what it was, they tried to protect his innocent little mind from the smutty stuff.

He thought

Waiting a moment for the deep sleep to overtake Tama, Anne watched the monitors closely, once satisfied she had to have the girl in a sitting position. To do that, large foam pillows were positioned at the end of the table. "Kelly lift her up please, Jennifer I'll need you to support her while I do this." Instructions given, she checked to see that she had everything available at a hands reach.

 "Watch the lines Reese." Jen had to let the anaesthetist know to be aware that they could pull out a IV with this manoeuvre of getting Tama into the upright position, fortunately Kelly was on one end to ensure nothing was snagged.

 With a gentle heave, the young girl was now up against the pillows, her legs out in front of her in a slight downward angle. "I can support her Doctor MacGregor, Doctor Keller can stay with you." Kelly was strong, she was Navy and had done years of training with the Marines, in fact most of her service life had been attached to a Marine element.

 "That works for me." Jen switched positions ready to lend Anne a hand as soon as it was required.

Without delay Anne began the procedure, one that would prove to be quite simple and straight forward, although it took the better part of thirty three minutes to finally have the device in place, junctioning at the cerebral cortex nerve endings. The 'switch' was inbedded into Tama's left upper scapula, being held in place with titanium screws, then layered over with a bone fusing 'glue'. When she was done, with Jen administering many forehead wipes for Anne, she stepped back, pulling off her gloves. "Well done girls. Reese you can wake up her now as we'll need to test this immediately. Jennifer, you can close up; any adjustments we need to make we can do so with the remote device." That little thing, looking very much like an automatic garage opener sat on another table nearby.

Dylan looked at Helga and scanned her over. She nodded responding seeing that she herself needed to ease up a little on her own rigidness, "Okay. Call me Dysun. You may show me around later." Even if she hated doctors and nurses, Helga seemed to be okay and Dylan might grow to trust her a little bit.

Only her friends call her this, so she was allowing Helga permission to call her by the nickname only if she wanted. Turning to face the door, she walked across the small path toward the doorway and stopped before the corridor. Turning to her side, she noted one of the SFs looking at her. Baring her teeth, her coldness returned as she growled lightly at the SF.

Reese worked quickly to make sure the lines didn't get tangled, giving Kelly a smile as she helped with the lines as well.  Reese watched the process, intrigued by it all.  She nodded at Anne.  "Working on that now," she said, moving around to start redo some of the switches.  She sat back.  "Alright, should be just a short amount of time now," she said.

Tama Akimoto

From conscious to sleep to consciousness again seemed barely a moment at all to Tama. Though everything was changed, everything was different and she didn't just feel it was her new position.

Her surroundings at least were vaguely familiar in her post open haze. As her sleepy sapphire eyes gazed round.

The implants were there, she could feel them still impeded on her skin, but the tingle she had with them, that she had know since first waking with them was diminished.

"My destiny...is my own. I am not
..the Lady Protector."

It was no question, it was a statement. She knew they had put her destiny in her own hands for the first time in her very short life.

 With the speed of a practiced surgeon, Jennifer inserted 5 very neat stitches into Tama's back, using an extremely fine cushing suture. She was more than pleased with the result and for Tama it meant a very quick healing with little scar to show in time.

 After that was completed, she applied a plaster dressing, which occurred just as Reese had begun the 'wake up'. It was all so quick, total time as she looked at the counter 36.5 minutes. A job well done. Then Tama was starting to speak, groggily but that was to be expected. "Try not to move to much just yet Tama. We still need to test this while you're in this position. Anne?" She looked at the older woman, then Reese and Kelly. "Excellent work girls."

By the time Tama was awake, Jennifer, Reese and Kelly had completed their tasks, Anne already had the remote in hand. She also picked up a nearby laptop placing that alongside the young girl. Setting the remote to off, it was a simple next step, the laptop was already switched on with her password set. "Tama, see if you can access this for me please."

Using the hand that had not been sliced into, Tama moved her hand over to the laptop and placed it down. She connected, but it wasn't full on, like her first experience.

The screen reflected her interaction too, the mouse moved irrationally a cross the screen, while gibberish was being written into to the password box.

Unlike her first experience, Tama was able to more easily pull her hand away. Everything reverting as befiee.

"I can still... still connect, but it's not so much chaos"

The tired youth said quietly, the edges of her mind hemmed anaesthesia still. She would feel the pain of recovery later, but her mixed genetic worked in her favour.

 By rights Tama shouldn't have been able to even sense the equipment, at least that was the plan. She furrowed her brow for a moment as she also looked over at the display on the other laptop that was showing the graph from the signal of the transmitter. This was getting into Radek's terrain now, so it was good he was here. "Some fine tuning Anne?" She asked, remembering that all did not go according to plan when they did much the same for young Bonnie Heckman; there were issues. "Radek, is it possible Tama's physiology might have something to do with it? Tama, how much do you know about what your devices were meant to do in the first place. We could work backwards from there I'm sure."

Reese sat back in her chair.  It was getting out of her element now, but she was curious to listen and see what she could learn.  She could see there were going to be times that she would be learning new things and lots more studying coming her way.  This process was something she had only heard whispers of.  She had never actually seen it done before.

"Yes yes, that is quite possible, those connections are very powerful, and i believe she was mentaly trained to use them. i should..... be able......... to help"

He stood in front of the laptop

"If Anne does not mind me fiddling with her device, Tama, i am going to try and power it down some more, tell me if you feel anything"

For a moment Tama was about to shake her head, but was partly to sluggish and had enough sense to not do it.

"I know nearly nothing...my tea was drugged and I then woke up with them. I escaped that night... the only thing that was said to me was that I would be the Lady Protector once I was finished. "

Her intensely blue eyes followed her Pai move around the room from her position rather awkward postion. Once she was instructed she put her hand that the laptop,making a connection, just as diminished as it had been before. She could almost start picking out the lines of code in her head, but she was still groggy and that wasn't the point either.

"I can still hold a connection...it's limited thought.. not so much information. "

"Yes, yes." Anne said, a slight touch of frustration in her voice. It should have shut the connection down completely. What was she missing here? When Radek stepped forward to make some remote adjustments though, her face beamed brightly. "I'm so glad I paid close attention to my late husband. Will was, apart from a beautiful soul, loving husband and father, an electrical engineer from his early Navy days. He thrived on gadgets, their house back in Sydney was littered with them. "Frequency modulation Radek. I should have left the module exposed, I never thought we'd have to go through this. But there is a way to make the change. Kelly," She eyeballed the Nurse. "could you pop down to engineering and ask them for a small magnet, they will have one." Her mind was racing now, they were on the cusp of securing Tama's freedom.

"Here you are Doctor MacGregor. There were a few of them, different sizes so I grabbed one I thought suitable." It was shaped like a heavy U, painted red.

Slumped forward, propped up on pillows wasn't a comfortable position, Tama was just going to have to put up with it. She tried to move her hand to scratch her nose but it pulled slightly her back, so she stopped.

With one eye on the monitor, she applied the device to Tama's back, turning it back and forth until the readouts were practically zero, or as close to. "Radek, its pays to pay attention, I couldn't have done it without the time I've spent around people like yourself, Sam and Rodney." She tapped Tama lightly on the shoulder then.

"If you wouldn't mind..."

The youth repeated her request,very much aware of what was going on behind her as she sat upright in the slouched position. She wanted this to be done, so she could be frer. Free to choose and free to rest... they couldn't make her follow their plans not now. She didn't need to run any more.

She recalled having to hide in the brush if some random world as hunters trawler around looking for, she had nearly been caught then.

Breaking from the terrifying memory, Tama looked up to the man she how new as her Pai, yet his face still seemed so familiar. That would be because of how she was made, she supposed.

Reaching out her hand, she touched the laptop again, this time nothing, absolutely nothing. The screen remained the same, there was no tingle, now flow of information clamouring into her head demanding to be sorted.

The look of sheer joy on everyone's faces was a clear sign of just how great a job they had done. Experimentation on the fly, one that the likes of Sam Cater and Rodney McKay would be quite proud of. Anne saw that to in Radek's eyes, so it was no surprise to Anne his face was alight more than anyone else, except Tama. "Yes lass you are free now. Everyone, I simply want to say thank you, all of you did marvelously. Radek, I'd like you to speak on Tama's behalf when she sees Woolsey, she'll need confirmation from you that the procedure worked better than expected." Taking a moment to breathe in that relief, Anne continued. "I think we all deserve a break though. Tama, I'll notify Mister Woolsey myself, we'll let you know when he wants to see you. Dismissed everyone, I'm going to sleep for a month." After an imaginary beer of course and an equally imaginary havana.

 For Jen, the best outcomes were always an event for celebration, at least as much as being way out here could provide. With that thought in mind and Radek's admission that perhaps Tama get a little sleep, Jennifer had to admit even to herself she could use a little shut eye herself, having been up non stop since yesterday morning without a break.

Reese nodded.  A little rest sounded perfect.  She hadn't really gotten a chance to stop since coming to Atlantis.  "That sounds great.  I need to figure out where my little rascal of a cat ended up anyhow," she grinned.

Tama Akimoto

"Sleep seems good,I'd like to really sleep, a proper sleep"

Between having to be aware of her surroundings lest she be attacked by the hunters or being woken by nightmares, Tama hadn't really had a good sleep.

" Can I lie back yet?"
She was hesitant to move herself, apart from the slight forgiveness she was still feeling, the IV and her bandage were part of her awareness.

A yawn escaped her, before her Sapphire eyes closed to sleep.

Success came in the way of appreciation, that so often came in a mere look of the eyes in someone. Anne saw that not only in Tama, but all of them; she was happy, more than happy that her visit here had been so fruitful. It would though be one hell of a report to write up. "I tell you what lass, we'll transfer you to a recovery bed, its far more comfortable for you there and Radek can sit with you for a while at least." Giving a nod to her staff, that was the last thing she had to do to see it done.

 So far all had worked out well, the real test would be in the field so to speak. But to be fair to Tama, she needed rest right now more than anything else, in fact they all did. It had been an anxious few hours for them. "Kelly, you can disconnect the IV's now please, we will though for a short while keep her on a saline drip."

 "Tama Honey as soon as Kelly takes the lines out you can lie down. You'll be able to sleep for as long as you like then." Jen returned the nod to Anne, she liked working with the woman, straight to the point, you always knew where you stood with her.

 Taking a moment while Kelly did her work, Jen spoke to Reese. "Gizmo wasn't it Reese? Where did you leave him last? You know having something so familiar around here like a cat could do wonders for some of our patients." Her eyes moved towards Tama, she was one who could use some of that support.

 "I'm on it." Kelly was a model of efficiency, never letting an opportunity to slip by where she could do her job and do it well. Within minutes she had the tubes disconnected, leaving only a single IV receiver in place so that the saline could be hooked up when they moved her. "Okay, we're ready to move you Tama when you say so, or just smile, that would do as well."

Reese smiled when Jen remembered her cat's name.  'That's right.  And last I had seen Gizmo she had been with Ruby and Mike, but Mike has left already and I am not sure about Ruby."  Reese felt like she hadn't had time to stop since she had first arrived at Atlantis.  She nodded a bit.  "Animals can do wonders and Gizmo loves people."

 Kelly looked up from her desk, it had been very quiet since most of the medics were away doing something. There was but one patient, one of the civilian scientists, recovering from having an in grown toe nail removed last night by Reese. Other than that, there was nothing to do but clean and read. Which was exactly what She was doing when the call came from Amelia. Answering promptly, Kelly soon had a small team in readiness for the arrival. It wasn't going to be the first baby they had delivered in Atlantis.

 The door of the transporter flew open as if it were possessed by something, or at least that was what it looked like to Melinda, she didn't recall them being as quick as that just a day ago, or even this morning. Half way to medbay, Kelly and her team met them. "That was quick Kelly." Mel said to her on the fly, she was still holding Brina's hand who at this time was still semi conscious. "She's stable, 112 over 80 with a very slight fever at about 38. As far as we know, this will be a c-section so can you have one of our girls get A theater ready for us." Hopefully she was saying the right things, which was a given considering the 'Vet' had spent more time here than in her own digs.

 "Already done Mel. Reese, don't frown, you girls have got this." While she didn't know the full story, Kelly was one of those buoyant nurses who had that way of lifting everyone's spirits.

Reese smiled slightly when the doors opened and Kelly greeted them.  That was a good thing to see.  At least things were all prepared.   "Good job Kelly.  Thanks.  And i'm trying to stay positive, " she promised.  She was determined to save Brina and the baby.

 Staff flew into action as if trained for this very scenario rather than treating the typical wounds they had to deal with on, that delivering babies was an everyday event. While that wasn't the case, they certainly had the experience behind them with not only here in Atlantis, but many of the staff had served in either Afghanistan or Iraq where delivering babies was an everyday event.

 As soon as the gurney started moving, this time Brina did wake up. Her eyes were obviously pained but still full of spirit. She tried to speak, but Kelly quickly placed her hand gently over the young woman's lips. "Shhhhh, save your strength girl, you will need it." Her words were exactly what she needed, much in the same context as she would expect from one of her own people.


 Doors slid back, Melinda raced over to SCRUBS, dragging Reese with her. Inside the cordoned off room, she sat on a bench after plucking one of the disposable one piece theater coveralls. Without even taking off her boots she slipped into the legs, then stood to get her arms in. A Nurse was on hand to zip up the back. "You know what Reese..." She started to say as her bare arms went under the running warm water and surgical cleanser. "..I take back what I said, forget I ever said it in fact. We 'are' going to have both mother and child leave her safely when the time comes." That was her current theory at least. Now all they needed was the accompanying hope.

Reese knew Brina was in good hands as Mel drug her over to get washed up and put on the horrible scrubs which were necessary.  She grinned at her friend as she tugged the scrubs on.  "Now that's the spirit.  That young woman seems like a real fighter and I'm not about to give up on her."  Especially when it seemed Brina had already been through so much.  Reese started to wash up, not wanting to waste another minute.

 Now that everyone was on the same page, the rush began to save them both. Melinda was in her scrubs now wiping all trace of moisture and cleanser from her arms with her eyes darting every which way making sure nothing was left to chance. There was one thing, they needed Brina awake during the procedure, there being only one way to do that. "Kelly would you go prepare an epidural for us please while Reese and I take care of the portable ultra sound."

 "On it." The brunette said before she herself had a chance to get into scrubs. She did though take care of that procedure first before going to the op theater cabinet to retrieve the anesthesia and syringe.

 Fearing not to touch anything now that she was sterile, Mel detailed off one of the other nurses to fetch the ultra sound. "Reese as soon as you're done and changed we're going to bring a new Athosian warrior into the world." She didn't keep her voice low that time, making sure Brina heard her. The young woman looked up and smiled.

Reese finished the last minute prep as she made sure she was sterile and ready to go.  She wasn't taking any chances with Brina and her little one.  She glanced over as Mel ordered the ultra sound and epidural.  It would be a bit awkward for Brina but Reese agreed with Mel, it would be the best way to get this done.

Reese grinned widely.  "Sounds like a good day to me," she said, checking everything once more before turning to Mel.  "Let's see what we can do about helping this new momma along so she can be holding that little one."

 A few moments later Kelly returned in SCRUBS pushing a theater trolley in front of her. On top of that was neatly laid out the necessary instruments and equipment needed for the operation; the epidural syringe was already prepped, it would go straight into the base of Brina's spine, effectively numbing her from the waist down. She then leaned down to the girl as two orderlies slid her from the gurney to the table. "This won't take long Brina. Soon you'll be holding your new babe in your arms okay?"

 "Uh huh...I know it'll be d-d-d -difficult and I know you will all do your best.." Brina struggled to speak, she was now really in a lot of pain. That was a condition they could do something about.

 Another second or three after Kelly returned, Melinda had the ultra sound set up, a tool she had used almost as many times on animals as she had now used on human beings. She was becoming quiet adept at it. "Okay Reese I'll let you take care of the epi and as soon as Brina has been sedated we'll start getting some quick pictures. I don't though want to waste any time, we really need to get this done as fast as practical." Time was always of the essence in these situations.

Reese was impressed by how well everyone worked together here.  She had noticed that the first day she had arrived.  They worked as a true team.  And it seemed they had everything set up already and all her and Mel needed to do was join them.

Reese nodded.  "Got that covered.  And yes, I do believe you are right.  We don't want to keep this poor girl in any more suspense then necessary," she smiled in case Brina heard them.  It was really for Brina and the baby's safety but she didn't want the young girl worrying.  She walked out to where Brina and Kelly were, giving them both smile.  "Alright Brina.  You'll feel a slight prick before going numb.  Then we'll get that beautiful baby into your arms," Reese said, accepting the needle and carefully inserting it.  Thankfully this was one thing she had done countless times and it was the same everywhere.  "Alright, you should start to feel more relaxed more."

 Everything began to happen quickly after that, Kelly assisted with the ultra sound the moment Reese had Brina sedated who could only manage to nod when told about the small prick. She may or may not have felt a thing, with the Athosian's you never could quite tell, their stoic demeanor seemingly getting them through most things that mere mortals from Earth would complain bitterly about, or simply faint over. They were tough people.

 Melinda did the scans with practiced ease, gaining six good images within moments. She had them up on the screen beside them shortly after; which was the best way for Reese to determine how to approach this delicate situation. "As I suspected, the baby is reversed. That though isn't the main problem, Brina is raging with fever and I think both her and the bub may have an infection. But at least they are both alive....God I wish Jennifer was here." She stopped talking for a moment to weigh up their options. "What do you think Reese? Deliver the baby first then administer some antibiotics to both, or take a chance, give Brina the antibiotics now and wait a little while. Without any danger to either of them, an hour under light sedation shouldn't do any harm." She hoped not at least.

Reese studied the ultrasound images, not liking what she was seeing.  Even if they would have had more time there was no way this little one would have been born naturally.  She thought about it for only a brief moment.  "We need to get the baby out.  Any added time will just but the little one in distress which could lead to more problems.  We'll deal with the fever and infection after the baby is here."

Reese hoped she was taking the right measures as she grabbed up a scalpel.   She wanted and prayed that both would survive.  She left the others to get the antibiotics ready as she started the c-section.  What felt like an eternity later yet was probably only a few minutes Reese held a squalling baby in her arms.  "Take her and get her cleaned.  I'll finish here then we need to get both mom and baby on some antibiotics," she instructed.

 "Agreed" Mel said more quickly than she would normally do so. But then she had to remind herself they were dealing with two human lives and not the animal specimens she was normally with alien animal creatures that were at least a touch hardier than human beings. That wasn't to say Athosian's weren't tough, they were. But infection will put anyone down.

 Brina was calm and quiet throughout the whole procedure even if she was saturated with sweat. It was beading off her like a waterfall, which was a surer sign of infection than stress. Melinda had an IV catheter into the girls left wrist as Reese worked, she already had a full spectrum antibiotic ready for as soon as the baby arrived. Kelly as usual was everywhere, taking the divine little girl in her arms with a warm towel as soon as Reese had cut the cord. "She is so sweet." The veteran nurse was heard to say as she quickly whisked the baby away to the clean room. They already had a humidicrib ready as that was the bub's best chance if she had the same infection as her mother.

 "Do you want me to close for you Reese?" Mel asked as she finished inserting the catheter and taping it up. "I think you have done so well, fabulously in fact."

Reese had never heard a more beautiful sound then when the baby cried.  She nearly wilted as she had seriously been worried they would lose mom and baby.  Now though it seemed both had a chance to live a happy life.  She smiled at Mel as Kelly took the baby to get her cleaned and in the crib.  "Sure,' she answered.  "And Brina here did all the hard work."  She reached up to squeeze Brina's hand.  "She's here, Brina.  And she is so beautiful. You did a good job."

 The young red head managed through the pain she was still feeling, to turn her head to one side following Kelly as the little girl was placed safely in the humidicrib. "Is she well?" Her fever wracked voice croaked.

 Melinda nodded in thanks to Reese before her own eyes looked over to where the baby was to be settled in then back to Brina, then to Reese. Their work wasn't done yet. "Your baby will be fine Brina, now we have to get you back healthy and ready to take care of your little one." With a little tactful movement of the head, Mel indicated the ampules that held the broad spectrum antibiotics, then Brina's drip line. The last thing they wanted to do now was to allow Brina to be aware of just how sick she really was.

Reese's heart broke for the young mother.  Brina had a long way to go but Reese wasn't giving up on her.  "She is perfect.  And such a content little one,' Reese promised as she quietly moved around the bed.  Mel had it right, they didn't want Brina worrying anymore.  She carefully added the antibiotics into the dripline, praying they could get Brina's temperature down.  They hadn't made it this far to lose the young mother now.

 Brina understood what they were doing, she was told by one of the Athosian healer's a month ago there was a chance of her being infected by the blistering sores she had at six months when she brushed passed a thistlecrown tree. Of course back then, being still naive and so young, thinking she had the toughness of her race she'd get through it alright. Hindsight had proven her wrong, a mistake she'd not make again if she survived this. "Tell me Doctor, my baby, does she have the infection to?" It would stand to reason, why else where they so careful with the infant.

 Melinda looked helpless for a brief second, she glanced at Reese, Brina and Kelly each before answering. "She does, but we will do everything we can to stop it Brina as we are doing with you. Our medicines are very powerful and...if all that comes to nothing, we can call on friends."

 The nurse looked over at the two doctors from the crib, it didn't sound good to her and she knew exactly what Olofsson was talking about, the El'Dari. "They do owe us some favors don't they?" Their people, the Tauri of Earth as they were known, had gone far beyond their weight in two wars and had stood by their new ally when other races were throwing wild claims around about them, all proven wrong of course.

 "Uh, huh. They do. Reese I wonder if we should ask Richard to give them a call just in case?"

 As Melinda went to the wall phone, Kelly looked around for the ice packs, remembering they were in the large walk in freezer. "Reese do you think we should slip a rubberized sheet under her first?"

 While waiting for Olofsson to return, Kelly got to work with Reese as quickly and as gently as they were able to. The 'wet' sheet she unrolled and slipped it beside Brina, feeling her forehead as she did. "She's burning up, we really need help quickly. Reese, we roll her to one side, I'll slip the sheet under her, then we do have to get that ice. I don't think we have enough here, we may need to ask the kitchen to help out on this."

 "Got him!" Mel almost squealed joyfully then launched straight into without delay, hoping to convince him in one very quick sentence. "Mister Woolsey I need you to listen very closely. We have an Athosian girl here who has just given birth but she is in dire need of help. She has an infection from a local plant we cannot find a suitable antibiotic for and she will die soon if we can't help her. Please sir, would it be possible to call in those favors from the El'Dari on this?" She waited.

 Slipping the 'wet' blanket beneath the girl was easy, she was as light as a feather. After that between Reese and Kelly they began packing what ice they could find around her. "Reese check her lines to make sure they're not tangled underneath her, the drip has stopped." The senior nurse was always on the ball, she could see the 'bubbles' come to a stop. Her mind was racing though, even just glancing at the readouts she could see that Brina's temperature was still at 104, way too high. "Mel, when you're done with Woolsey, call the kitchen please."

 Mel could only but nod at that point.

Animals she could cope well with when sick or injured, humans just made her go into shock, a trauma she hadn't quite gotten over from her time in the war on the Daedalus. "Reese!

 "An hour sir, that's all we have...I have to go." She rang off, there was simply no point in hanging on the phone any longer. Two speed dials later she'd rang the kitchen then hung up again. "Ice is on the way, Kelly what else can we do?" Melinda went to Reese's side, the woman she knew would be in a slight state of panic right now. "We'll save her Reese, we have to or our reputation will be shot to pieces." Of course there was no time either for levity but she had to try and make her friend smile.

It was true, Reese was trying to hold it together.  She refused to lose Brina.  That cute little girl needed her mother and Reese didn't want to lose anyone.  "Praying I can do," she breathed.  "And no, I refuse to lose her.  she is gonna be here for her little girl."

 As soon as Mel turned around, before she could even answer Kelly two SF's brought in bags of ice from the kitchens, four of them to be exact. It wasn't going to hold on the bed, not even with the rubberised blanket. "Reese, Kelly I think we should move her to the bath, we still need to get her fever down a little more, its better but still high. What do you both think?"

 Kelly mused for just one second, "We'll do it, far better than waiting for the elves I think." She had no idea how long that would take. "Guys..." She said to the SF's before they left. "Push the bed into the bathroom for us please will you. Reese, we need that monitoring gear in there, I'll go make sure we have all the right connections." Kelly moved off to the store as the two large men followed orders silently.

 "We will NOT loose her Reese." Mel reiterated.

Reese nodded.  "It certainly can't hurt."  She was willing to try anything to make sure that Brina survived to raise that little girl of hers.  She quickly moved about getting the rest of the equipment while Kelly went to check the connections.  She would leave the bed moving to the SFs that Kelly had spoken to.

A slight smile touched her lips when she heard the radio crackle back to life.  "Must say that is the best news I've heard yet," she said in relief.

 Reese and Melinda were fast and efficient workers, they had to be in almost every case they handled, except of course for the odd cut finger, hand or bump on the head; most of the  injuries and illnesses that were treated in the infirmary tended to head towards the serious level. With so many stairs and balconies in the city, there were bound to be accidents. Then there were those noxious unexpected things, teams coming back from unknown worlds with all kinds of infections. But this one, right under their nose was proving to be the most stubborn.

 As everything was hooked up to Brina (Kelly had come and gone twice now), Melinda had a thought. "Reese, I don't want to have to say this but it needs to be said. We need to get both blood and tissue samples from Brina and the baby. I say this because this infection came from the mainland and as many of our people are visiting there, not to mention the Athosians themselves; what would we do if it happened again?" Like they couldn't keep calling on the El'Dari could they?

Reese had known as a doctor that she would face things that would leave her in near tears.  This was one she hadn't been prepared for though.  Not that she was willing to throw the towel in yet, but it was so heart breaking to see Brina suffering the way she was and not being able to do much for her.

Reese looked up at Melinda, her blue eyes wide.  A silent groan escaped her lips.  "As much as I don't want to agree you're right.  We don't want this to happen again.  And if it does which I have a bad feeling it will we want to be able to help, not just sit here with our hands tied," she agreed.

 Every time Melinda and Reese set out to do something lately it ended in some kind of drama whether it was something minor or as had happened more recently, a major incident. Today was no different, as usual they were tackling it with their stressed out yet 'get it done' approach. "Kelly, get in touch with pathology, tell them we will have some blood and tissue samples down to them soon, we'll need testing done in record time."


(https://i.imgfly.me/eBXDB.png)

 Finally something constructive to do, Kelly looked up from her Pad, nodded smartly then zipped out again down the hallway to the lab.

 After the CNO left, Mel returned her attention to Reese. "Who would you be more comfortable with Reese, Brina or the baby? We're going to need blood works, the full spectrum (that meant about 6 vials), a bone marrow sample and hair sample as well." Doing the baby would of course be delicate work, very delicate on a newborn.

Reese sighed softly.  Things were not going well at all.  She prayed they could save Brine though.   Reese thought for a minute.  Normally she was comfortable with either.   "Considering I am still learning about their race I think I'll take Brina.  I don't want to hurt the baby by accident."

Both Richard and the El'Dari leader exited the transporter together, then walked the short distance to the infirmary, he spoke in short bursts as they went. "Trouble seems to plague this city from time to time. We currently have-" He stopped, thinking he was saying too much, but then she would find out soon enough. "-there is a threat from the Genii rebels, but hopefully we're dealing with it as we speak. And here we are." Stopping by the door he made the appropriate introduction. "Doctors Prescott and Olofsson, may I present Sunniva Guorun, leader of the El'dari. She is here to assist in whatever way you need and if either of you need me, I'll be in the gate room."

 Mel was about to answer when Richard brought in and introduced Sunniva. The first reaction from the Vet was to mutter 'Wow' under her breath. She had heard so much about the El'Dari, much of it legend she imagined, some tales of course and then that she'd heard from both Woolsey and Lorne. But never in her mind did she ever think she'd be so blown away, not simply by the woman's immense height, like she'd not seen overly tall women before (Sunniva was at least just shy of 7', but not lanky, she was well proportioned); it was the aura around her, those intense steel blue eyes that saw straight through you. For a very long moment, Melinda was lost for words. When she finally spoke, she was almost stuttering. "Um..ah....I am sooo pleased to meet you..." But the thing was this situation was dire, deathly. "I'm sorry, Sunniva.." Then Richard disappeared before she could even thank him. "Damn!" She swore. "S..Sunniva, yes I'm Melinda, Reese is the Senior Medical officer in Jennifer Keller's place at the moment, have you been briefed on Brina here and her baby?" She was on the verge of tears at this point.

Sunniva merely looked at the two girls as you might children trying to grasp the meaning of life. She smiled ever so sweetly, but there was somehow a coldness there. She nodded before answering.  "I will greet you both more formerly when the time is right. I can though feel the essence of the girl, she has been poisoned badly. Reese, with your permission may I attend to her?"

Reese was a bit speechless when Sunniva walked in.  Yes she herself was on the short side anyhow, but now she felt really really tiny.  She had never seen anyone like this woman before.  She quickly shook her head though.  There wasn't time for gawking right now.  Brina's life hung in the balance.

The doctor nodded.  "Of course."  She took a step back to let Sunniva close to Brina.

 Sunniva looked down upon the helpless girl, she was moved greatly as her could is when life hangs in the balance. To the El'Dari, life is and always would be the most precious commodity known to them, everything else takes second place. She glanced quickly at both Doctors. "I must work quickly, whatever you do, do not interfere until I am finished. This may well tax me to the extreme, but I say again, do not interfere."

 That wasn't a simple order, it was a command and one which Melinda wasn't about to disobey. She took Reese by the elbow to move them back a few feet. "I wonder what she will do?" The barest whisper escaped from Mel's lips, curious to know how Sunniva would handle this.

 "We don't need this." The El"Dari said in the same moment the ice and water disappeared to land with a loud noise in the adjacent wash basins, making a splash on the floor. "Make yourselves useful, she'll need blankets when I'm done."

 Melinda was looking a little like a startled rabbit in headlights, the mere presence of the woman was over powering to her. She froze for a brief moment until reality set in. "Stay with her Reese." She then set off to the Nurses store to get the needed blankets and anything else she could think of.

 While the girls were occupied, Sunniva set to work. The first thing she did was to run her hands all over Brina's body, as if she were feeling for something, there appeared to be a faint pale blue glow coming from between her fingers. After some agonizing five minutes, suddenly Sunniva straightened up, a moan escaped her lips as she wobbled slightly. "It is done." Then she collapsed on the floor.

 (https://i.imgfly.me/cdM5Y.jpg)

 Just as suddenly Brina sat up wide eyed, realzing her nakedness she sank down below the rim of the bathtub. "What just happened and who is she?" her slender fair hand pointing at Sunniva on the floor.

Reese probably would have stood there in shock if Mel hadn't tugged her elbow to move her away.  Although she still watched in interest.  Just what was Sunniva going to do?

Her eyes widened as Sunniva suddenly collapsed and Brina bolted to a sitting position.  "Whoa!" she exclaimed, kneeling next to the much taller El'Dari.  "Are you okay?" she asked gently, hoping Mel or Kelly would check on Brina.

 That certainly was out of left field for both of them. Melinda checked on the baby, she was fine at least as far as the readouts were concerned and there was no way she was going to open that humidicrib now, she could see there was no immediate need to do so. Leaving what she was about to do then, she joined Reese at Sunniva's side. She looked quite pale, if you could tell that from her normal alabaster complexion in any case at least. Mel felt for the pulse, it was strong and steady, as much as she could tell for one of their kind.

 But before she could speak, Sunniva opened her eyes sharply. "You did not..?" She left the question unsaid as the look on Melinda's face told her they did obey her command, which considering they were in Reese's domain was a little strange.

 "No we didn't, you collapsed when you finished." Mel said blankly, she wasn't used to an outsider calling the shots in here. But then they had no choice. "And we thank you Sunniva for coming to help us with Brina, I'm afraid we had no alternative."

 Sunniva sat up defying the fact she was flat out a mere second ago. "Think nothing of it, I see it as a duty. How is the babe and the girl?"
 

 (https://i.imgfly.me/cdM5Y.jpg)

 Brina leaned on her elbow in the bed, she was at least dry now and warm. Still feeling just a little weak she answered for herself. "I am fine, better at least. I believe my thanks are to you?" She'd never seen an El'Dari before, to her Sunniva was just another member of the galaxy, little did she know how much a part of that the El'Dari were. Brina looked over at her little girl in the crib, she smiled. Immediately she knew the name she would carry. For now she said nothing.

 Unfolding like some graceful bird, Sunniva stood to walk over to her patient, she checked on the baby first, then Brina. "You are strong, to be truthful Brina you should not have survived but for the quick thinking of these two. I was merely the instrument that brought about your healing, do not think of it." She more or less repeated herself.

 "Thank you to all of you then." Brina said softly, then laid back to rest.

 Turning to Reese and Melinda, Sunniva withdrew a small vial from within her cloak. "This roalberry, it grows only on my homeworld. Give her just a small drop every three hours for a day, no more. The baby is doing well so there is no more to do there other than your usual care. I would though like to stay a while if that is well with you both?"

 Melinda found a smile at least, she stood to join the El'Dari, hauling Reese up with her as she did. "We are grateful and I am sure that can be arranged. Reese?" It was her call after all.

 
Title: Re: Atlantis: Infirmary
Post by: sorra on January 03, 2018, 12:40:39 PM
It had been hard for Reese to stand by and watch, but she had also learned to obey.  And when she saw Brina alive and healthy she was glad she had.  And she was also glad that Sunniva seemed alright.

"It is good to see you with more color, Brina," Reese said as Mel pulled her to her feet.  She accepted the vial with a nod.  "We'll do that and please, stay as long as you like," she assured Sunniva.

 Melinda took the vial of purple colored liquid from Sunniva, she popped the top open to give it a cursory smell, she was quite certain since she knew just a little of the El'Dari and the world they lived on, this 'roalberry' could very well be a cousin in the berry genus to Elderberry, it was the same color and the fragrance of that plant back home always lingered in her mind, her mother had a bush growing right outside Mel's bedroom, she would inhale its sweet freshness every spring. There would have to be a time for the girls to have a reciprocal visit to Sunniva's world and Mel hoped soon she could bring the subject up.

 Her blue eyes looked over to the woman, the question on her mind became a spoken one. "This is an immune booster isn't it?" She asked.


 Sunniva dipped her head towards Reese and Melinda, it was difficult for the latter at least to come to terms with the fact that the El'Dari woman's mind, if not her body at least, had lived for millions of years and in all that time, many of those years spent in a never ending recycling of an Asgard body until they woke up to the fact of the Xerox syndrome. "Thank you Reese, I am honored. I do have to spend some time with your leader Richard Woolsey, there is a little matter of a treaty I need to see to. After that I would like to learn as much from you two as I can. I am afraid that despite the reputation of my people and all the wonders we have achieved, the simplicity of everyday medicine is something we have come to rely far too much on technology. I pray your people over time won't make the same errors we did...yes it is." She added at the end to Mel's question.

 
 (https://i.imgfly.me/cdM5Y.jpg)

 Brina could only listen to the talk, it was a language all to their own. Not that she didn't understand them, of course she did. But the talk of medicine escaped her, she was a warrior first and foremost, a mother now second and of course a widow because of the Wraith. She felt comforted though by being in their presence. "Thank you Doctor Reese, I do feel wonderful and I could say amazing, though I do still feel a little weary. Would it be permissible for me to hold my baby soon?" She asked, propping herself on one elbow.

 Sunniva looked at both the young Doctors (She was aware of Melinda's qualifications, though she was also aware of how much time the girl had spent outside her own department). "From my point of view, certainly any time she can. I would though suggest that Brina rest for a few hours at least before you bring them together."

 That was good enough for Mel. She after all could only in the main part boast of delivering baby animals, though human beings were in truth far less complex than many she had a helping hand in.

Reese was definitely curious to speak with Sunniva more.  It seemed there was a lot that they both could learn.  And learning new things about medicine that could safe lives was certainly something she was interested in.  Not to mention learning more about the El'Dari was something that interested her as well.

Reese nodded.  "Of course.  I look forward to getting to speak with you more.  I think we could both learn much from each other."

She looked over at Brina and nodded.  What Sunniva said made sense.  Of course she didn't know half of what Sunniva had done to help Brina.  "That sounds about right.  You rest for a bit Brina, then we'll get your little one to you.  She is doing well."

 "You should rest now Brina." Mel soothed the young woman, pulling the covers over her. She then turned to both Reese and Sunniva. "We can talk more comfortably in the staff room, its been a harrowing experience for all us I would say."

 Sunniva agreed. "Hopefully I can show her people how to safely get rid of that weed where they live, it does not belong there and they should not have to live in such danger. Had she been a child, she would not have lasted so long. We should make this a priority."

 "I agree. Its too dangerous and hopefully since we brought the Athosians here, they can see the value in doing them such a service. Reese, since Teyla has gone off world, you and I can talk to the elders about it."

Reese smiled as Brina lay back down.  It wouldn't be long before the new mom would be able to hold her little girl.  This was one of the many reasons Reese enjoyed being a doctor, to see a new life come into existence.  Of course no all cases turned out so well, she was just glad that this one had.

She followed the others toward the staff room.  at least they would have a bit of privacy there.  Reese wrinkled her nose.  "Hmm, that will be new for me," she admitted.  She had never had to speak with the elders.  "But if it will help save lives then count me in.'

 With a very pleasant nod of her head, Sunniva gave the impression to the girls she was something close to a godly regent, although she would be the first to sway you off that thought. It was simply her baring, the immense height added weight to that it must be said. It wasn't though a dismissal, merely her way of departure. "We will speak again, for now I will see to it that Richard Woolsey is fully appraised of both this situation and that of my people, I bid you both a good eve." With that she left silently, you couldn't even hear her footsteps.

 Mel waited the appropriate amount of time before speaking again, when she did she whispered, getting that feeling that the El'Dari could hear her no matter where she was. "A strange one that Reese, very strange. She looks human to a point, other than those pointy ears of course and that skin, god what I would give to have skin like that, never mind she is so so very old."

 After a moment of silence, she spoke up again. "Kelly can take care of Brina and the baby now Reese, I think its really important now we get back to the mainland don't you? I'd hate to think one of their kids got poisoned by that stuff while we were here. We have to warn them."

 Mel laughed a little, the first time in a while that she'd feel light enough to do so. "I believe from what Teyla has told me, even some of the humans in this galaxy can be rather bizarre. But then, that is hardly different from our own back home isn't it?" She was right on that score, he own father was considered somewhat 'weird' at times.

 "Right, this is something we must do. Kelly..." She called to see if the nurse had returned, which she had a moment ago.

 "Mel?" The older woman looked up from the babies crib.

 By this time Melinda was on her feet ready to move out again. "Can you take care of Brina and the baby for a few hours, there is something Reese and I need to do back on the mainland. I'll clear it with Woolsey when we get to the Jumper bay."

 "The weed? Yes I heard Sunniva on that. Take my advice hun, drag along some marines, some red tags and do a good job. I don't want to see another case like this too soon do you?"

 "No." Mel shook her head. "Come on Reese, grab your gear we're going to be busy for a while. Could you swing by the cafe and grab some food, I'll see Captain Hunter and see if he can loan us a few of his boys."

Reese laughed.  "I'm sure there are some that would find us odd," she pointed out with a smile.  Now that Brina and her baby were safe she could relax a bit.  At least for now.

Reese nodded.  "I'll see what I can get my hands on.  Sounds like we'll be there for a while." She didn't want to see anyone else get as sick as Brina only because they didn't take a little extra time.

 "It's good to be back home again." Mel was singing in fact, a line from an old favorite of her Mother's, she couldn't quite recall who sang it, she just knew it was a lovely country song from long ago. Dropping her pack on the floor she was quite taken aback to see the med bay empty until she saw a small note on the nurses station desk.

 It read. "Doctors Prescott and Olofsson. The nurses have called a meeting to discuss our current wages and conditions. We feel we have been neglected far too long and we must warn you that if our demands are not met, industrial action will soon follow." It was signed simply 'The Nursing staff'. Which meant all of them.

 "Oh, oh, damn. Reese you had better read this." She handed the paper over to her friend. What a time to do such a thing and can they even do that?

Reese stretched a bit, chuckling as Mel sang.  "It is good to be home," she grinned.  "Hope Gizmo isn't too mad at me,"  her poor cat had been left behind for a while now.

 She had to scratch her head for a moment on two answers for Reese. The first was easy. "We left Gizmo in my lab didn't we? I'm sure we did. If so one of my assistants is looking after her, most likely curled up on my chair asleep." That was how she found at least one of her staff one day with a puppy like creature Mel had been taking care of. It was so sweet to see. Next, the nurses. "I really don't know, I mean they're all military, it isn't the normal sort of thing we'd expect from them is it? I don't even know if US personnel can go on strike can they?" It was worrying, a thing like this could spread throughout the base.

The blinding light subsided as Carrie blinked a few times, adjusting her eyes to the slightly dimmed lit Isolation room.
She quickly checked on the still very much asleep Mike in the bed, making sure nothing had changed during transport. Not that anything should change, but who could blame her for being a bit of a control freak at this point? One step closer to home for her friend…
Finally taking a step back, she nodded at Cate and Lena, “He’s fine, so you can leave him for now. Nothing much will happen anyway until I’ve had a chance to talk to Dr Horowitz about our next step.”

 "That is so annoying sometimes." Cate quipped once she had patted herself down checking to see all her body parts were still in place. One would think as one of the SGC's leading geeks she'd more comfortable than most with the beaming, that was the problem, she knew like Rodney, Sam and a few others exactly what was involved in the process.

 As they appeared she stepped over to look at her friend, a slight look of anxiety on her face. "Yes well, other than in dire need of a shower and something to eat Carrie, I guess you're right. But I hate leaving him like this you know? I wish there was more I could do for him." Then it struck her, there was, but how in God's name does she broach the subject with the medicos, they'd think she was far more crackers than they already know her to be.

Carrie gave Cate warm smile, “Yes, I understand that, but right now, the best thing you can do is go get some food in to you so that when you return here you’re all full of energy to be supportive when he wakes up.”

“Thank you, it’s good to be back.” Carrie turned to Annie as she approached the small group around Mike’s bed. “I’m glad you could join us this quickly. Let’s step outside for a few minutes for a quick update, shall we?” She signaled towards one of the nurses up in the observation room, to come down and take over the more hands on monitoring for a few minutes.

“Sounds great.” Carrie said and after a few instructions to the nurse, she said her good bye to Cate and Lena, hoping they’d do as told.
With the tablet under her arm she took the lead out of the room, only to halt in the corridor as soon as the door closed, “Look, even if I plan to keep this as short as possible, I could really use some coffee. You want some?” Carrie made an inclination with her chin towards the staff area.

 "Colonel Horowitz its good to see you again." It wasn't really, well Cate had nothing against the woman really, it was simply that their last meeting was under circumstances she'd rather not dwell on. Being more or less interrogated just because you apparently died not once but twice as if that was a big deal, only to find that powers that be wanted to know if you weren't off your rocker or something. Funnily enough, the woman did actually help her find a new perspective, so she had that much to thank her for. "I'll do just that Carrie, in fact I think getting something in my stomach and getting rid of this layer of cold induced body sweat will do more than that for me. Since the team doesn't as yet have ongoing orders ..." She looked hard at Lena. "....I think we should stay here at least until Mike wakes up."

"Quit pawing yourself, Cate, someone might think you're in heat..."

Elena quipped back, mentally doing the very same patting down process, only inside of her head, reading signals from her bits and bobs and praying that her brain won't scream a control sum fail signal.

"Yeah, Carrie, we'll do just that... Cause I don't think he'd love waking up to the sight of two skunks staring hungrily down at him... Colonel Horowitz..."

Ovcharenko acknowledged the shrink with a nod of her head, not wanting to keep them all waiting, and when they were left alone again, turned to stare down at her XO.

“I do! These last couple of hours on board has been frantic to say the least.” Carrie handed over the tablet to Annie before pouring a cup of coffee with a hint of milk in as well as another one with the already brewed tea to her colleague. “Lead the way and we’ll talk as we walk.”
She took a deep breath in order to collect her thoughts, “I did scan head to toe as soon as I could, but there were no signs of any traumas what so ever. Not even a hint of the concussion he had about 6 weeks ago. But hey, no surprise there though since it was a minor one. As for a chemical component - well, his blood work came back negative, but obviously there’s no way of telling what happened almost a month ago.”
Carrie stopped outside Annie’s office door and waited for her to open it. Not only because of her hands being full, this was after all, one of the few places not even her CMO privileges would grant her access.
The reply to the last questions would have to wait until they were behind closed doors, no need to put it out in the open for the rest of the infirmary to hear.

 Both girls did the rounds of the gate room, leaving Amelia some cake and a little more on plates for anyone else who missed out, they even sent some down to Rodney and Radek so they wouldn't feel left out either. "They've got Captain Jaworski in Iso I see." Mel commented once she had read the Nurse's charts. "He's physically okay it appears but they have him heavily sedated, I wonder why?" Some of the charts were missing so its possible Carrie Svensson had the with her. "What's next? Brina's still here, do you want to check in on her?"

Reese was glad they got the cake delivered to Amelia without anything happening or being called in.  Now they could focus on other things.  She shook her head a bit.  "I'm not sure.  Must be bad though," she answered.  A smile touched her lips.  "Ooh, I would love to see Brina and her little one," she said.

 Before leaving the Nurses station Melinda quickly went through the daily charts, that didn't take long at all as they had all been cleared except for Brina's and the baby's. Taking a deep sigh of relief in the knowledge they might have a reasonably easy day (or what was left of it), she led Reese into recovery where they had moved the mother and baby. "Knock, knock." Mel said softly at the door before entering. "How are you doing Brina?"

 With the small bundle cuddled to her chest Brian looked up from her bed smiling, it was the broadest smile imaginable. "I am fine now that you are both here. And I have finally decided on a name." That grin broadened even wider. "She will be called Reese Melinda Tarbaron, the last is my late husband's family name."

 "Oh..oh wow." Mel stood there stunned. "I..I am so honored Brina, so very honored." She grabbed Reese's arm in deep friendship, they had done something good.

Reese was glad to see that they didn't have a lot of files.   It was never good when a lot of people where in the infirmary.   Plus that meant they got to spend more time with Brina,

She smiled when she saw the girl and baby.  They both looked well.  Her eyes widened in shock.  "Oh ah,wow.  Thank you Brina.  That is a true honor."  She grinned broadly at Mel, nearly wanting to jump up and down.

 "The honor is truly mine, honestly when I was at the lowest point all those hours ago I never thought I would survive. Do you know I was speaking to Kelly earlier while you were away, I asked her in your world how I could describe you two and Sunniva." She paused gathering her blanket up close as the baby slept. "She told me that in your world you believe in beings called Angels, those who help mankind in their travels along the path of life. So, once I understood that and the concept of guardian Angels, that is what you both are to me." When she finished Brina was smiling, not broadly, but a sincere loving smile.

 Melinda stood there transfixed, she was utterly speechless as she had never regarded herself as anything but just someone doing their job. She never looked for plaudits or even gratitude too much as that was a given to see someone (especially her animal friends) survive a terrible ordeal. She felt like crying as she held Reese's arm so tightly. "You'd better say something before I fall apart." She whispered to her.

Carrie stopped just outside the door and turned towards Annie, “Maybe I should do this alone. I’m thinking it might be less stressful for him not to have more unfamiliar faces around him as he comes to. Since he was in an agitated state of mind when he was put under, not to mention it happened in another place, he might not wake up as quietly and calmly as we all like, but if he sees someone who’s a least a little bit familiar to him, it might help calm him down. How does that sound as a plan? You’ll still have full view via the CCTV up in the observation room.”

As soon as Carrie came in to the room, she dismissed the nurse on duty, ordering her to wait outside if needed instead and then without any hesitation, stopped the infusion pump that had made sure Mike was asleep for the last couple of hours.
Within a few minutes, he stirred in the bed and his eye lids fluttered.
‘An upset induction is very likely to become an upset wakening’ lingered in the back of her head as she stood vigil a few meters away from his bed.

< Isolation room >


It was all quiet. His body felt heavy and the eyelids took an immense effort to pry open. Large room, bluish lights coming from lamps in the walls, ceiling way, way up there.
Not recognizing anything of this, he felt his heart rate pick up and win or loose, he sat bolt up in the bed, panting slightly. ‘This is not! right.’
“Take it easy Mike. It’s alright. You’re safe. No one’s going to hurt you.”
The calm, female voice came from someone on his left and he twisted around to look at the woman. Blond, talking with a slight accent, intense blue eyes, yet her face was calm and… well, she looked sincere, friendly.
Rubbing his face in an attempt to get to cobwebs out, the cogs and wheels slowly starting to fire up. ‘Right, Carrie. Met you before. Filed under ‘unknown’, but kind looking person’
“Would you like some water? You’ve been asleep quite heavily for a while, so I imagine you might be thirsty?”
Mike pulled his legs up, to sit cross-legged and arms folded on the knees. Then he frowned, lifted on the thin blanket and he felt his cheeks turn red as he realized that while he’d been sleeping, someone had exchanged his clothes for a white short sleeved shirt with pants… That was down right disconcerting. “Where are my clothes?”
Carrie poured a glass of water in a small white cup and took a few steps closer, “Well, they were all wet and… and to get you all checked up, I needed you out of them.”
She held out cup towards him, and if he wasn’t mistaken, she looked almost as embarrassed as he felt.
He accepted it and with a suspicious look at her, he sipped on it. It tasted like heaven to his perched and foul tasting mouth. “Oh... And what else did you do to me while I was asleep?” he said with a suspicious voice as he followed Carrie with his gaze as she sat down on a chair by the foot end of his bed.
“We had some blood samples taken. That’ll explain the small pinprick needle marks in the crock of your arms. We also had your head scanned to see if there were any obvious signs of why you can’t remember anything. And by the way you reacted when you were about to enter the elevator, I’m kind of glad you slept through that part, because a scanner is way smaller than an elevator...”
Mike nodded, now he felt truly and utterly uncomfortable, “Yeah, sorry about that. Did I hurt anyone?”
Carrie smiled and shook her head, “No, not really. They are all fine and no hard feelings. How about your shoulder? You landed pretty hard on it.”
Taking the cup in his left hand, he pushed up the sleeve and gently probed it with his fingers. Sore, bruised, but no big deal as he saw it. “I’m good. I'll live,” he concluded. Taking yet another sip of the water, he realized that it tasted a whole lot different from what he was used to. It was good, but still very different.
“So what did you find during that check up? Anything that can explain why I am like this? Why I can’t remember anything before waking up in a bed on Tamora?”
Carrie looked at him and her way of staying quiet for just a moment to long felt like a bad omen, “The scans of your brain came back negative.” The smile that accompanied the news was down right contradictive.
Mike frowned, “Negative?”
“Sorry,” There it was again, that hint of embarrassment, “Negative is actually something good here, it means that there’s nothing physically wrong with your brain, No injuries.” Carrie became quiet again for a moment before continuing, “Unfortunately that also means that since I can’t find anything wrong with it, there’s nothing for me to mend or repair. I’m sorry.”
He believed her. She really looked like she meant those last words, not just saying so out of curtsy. Mike closed his eyes, supporting his forehead in his hand, “So that’s it? All of it is just... gone?”
Carrie remained silent again before speaking up, “No Mike, not necessarily. The mind sometimes works in ways we don’t understand or fully comprehend. Maybe it’s still in there; you just don’t know how to reach it.”
Mike opened his eyes and looked back at her, “You do understand that by first  giving me hope, then taking it back and now trying to give it back to me once again, isn’t a very good foundation to build a future relationship on, is it?”
Carrie gave him a sad, almost disappointed look, “Well, we’re not entirely out of options just yet though. I’ve got someone outside of here who’s a specialist on the human mind and I think it would be a good idea for you to see her. Talk to her. See what she might have to offer.”
With a snort-like sound, Mike looked around the room and its very closed door. “Do I have a choice?”
Carrie nodded, “Yes, you do. You can refuse to see her, but I strongly suggest you take me up on my offer. She’s very good at what she does…”
He looked down on his hands for a few moments. So far no one had lied to him. They had all appeared to be friendly and sincere in their efforts to help him. Yet, in spite of their efforts to put him at ease, there was that nagging feeling of everything just being an illusion, a feeling of that it all could be taken away without a moments notice. A feeling of them knowing so much of something that he didn’t, putting him in an inferior position, but even though it was disturbing, keeping a low profile might at least be the right thing to do for now, meaning he’d go for the offer and not put up any resistance. At least not for the time being.
Mike looked back up at the woman, “Alright, let’s do this then. Bring her in.”

"Roger that. Be right there."

She entered the iso unit, paused just inside the door. "Hello, Carrie." Then she nodded at Jaworski. "Captain Jaworski, I'm Colonel Horowitz. I'm a psychiatrist, a doctor of the mind. If you are interested in working with me to attempt to recover your memories, I would be glad to help. Should you decide to become my patient, we would have doctor-patient confidentiality, and anything you say to me will remain between us, though of course I will report in broad strokes on your condition to our superiors as required." She smiled and waited. The choice was his.

When Colonel Horowitz finished talking, Mike looked between the two women, a bit at loss about what to do. He wanted help, of course. And that thing about keeping it all between them sounded pretty good too, even though he wondered who these superiors were.
So what was the catch? What did they expect in return for helping him? Yorvis people had been very straight forward – work on the fields for food and shelter, but somehow these people seemed more… complicated in their relationships, somehow more complex. Then again, what did he have to loose?
He pulled in a deep breath, pulled off the blanket and swung his feet over the bed to sit with his feet over the edge, facing them.
“Alright. Where, when and how do we start?”

Mike went quiet for a minute as if he were considering his options, before replying, “Mike will be fine. You seem to know me by another name, but that is just not me, now for the rest – a  clean up would be nice. And since you mention it – I wouldn’t say no some food. It's been a while since I had something to eat.”
Annie’s mention of food had woken up his stomach, making it growl. He’d eaten before the sun came up, but then the team had come before he and Elle had taken their first break, so thinking back, it was only natural that he was hungry.
Pinching his shirt, Mike shrugged, “Well, these are kind of comfortable, but maybe I should change in to something less conspicuous?”
That last remark earned a small giggle like sound from Carrie as she stood by the door.
“What?” Mike gave Carrie a bewildered look, “What did I say?”
Looking between the two, Carrie still grinned a bit, “I’m not sure if Annie wants you to discover everything for yourself or if we’re allowed to pitch in and tell you bits and pieces, but I doubt me telling you that dressing in a conspicuous way never really bothered you… before.”
“Oh!” Mike had a perplexed look in his face, but then concluded, “Well, at this point I think I’d like to blend in as much as possible though.”

Mike felt confident enough to assert his desires and set boundaries. That was good.

Annie smiled at him. "Mike it is. How about we get you some house BDUs and then something to eat." She glanced at Carrie. "We should start with something simple, since your diet on the other planet was radically different. Don't want you to get sick. After that, you can be brave if you like, try new things."

She definitely wanted to try him on some of his favorite foods, see if the smells and flavors of those triggered any memories.

 Thankfully Cate didn't bump into Rob again, she thought that would be simply too convenient to even begin thinking about. Making reasonably good time she arrived in Med bay about five minutes after leaving her room; she had a purpose for wearing the particular uniform she had chosen, it was the same outfit she had on when she first met Mike at the Alpha site and she had hopes that it might trigger something in him. Getting directions from a Nurse, her next step then was to stand in the Observation Room. She could see Mike, Annie and Carrie in there but she knew he nor they couldn't see her. Seeing that they appeared to be getting ready to leave, Cate stepped back out again so she could casually intercept them outside.

 "The nurses tell me I and baby will be well enough to return to the village in a few days time, is that true?" Brina tried to give her best pleading smile, she was Athosian, they were tough people and in her heart she felt she could even return now. "The thanks is mine Doctor Prescott, I would not be here if it wasn't for you, both of you and Sunniva. So what do you think? I could go home earlier? Its not that I do not appreciate the company and splendid surroundings here, but I really would feel far better among my own people, do you know what I mean?"

 Melinda still holding onto Reese's arm thought about it for a moment. She then released herself to go to the end of the bed so she could read Brina's chart. It was impressive to say the least. "I do Brina. Give us a minute." Mel said going back to Reese then taking her aside. Keeping her voice low she gave her impressions. "Her chart is nothing short of a miracle Reese, no trace of the infection and the same with the bub. All her vitals are in the green, her potassium count is up, as is all her other minerals.

<<Elena from the Quarters to Isolation Ward>>

Russian's routine was quite similar to that of her XO. She just took pause on her way to the quarters due to some unavoidable nature calls suddenly overcoming her completely. Elena did not forget to glare at Cate just in case it was another one of her tricks before slipping into the closest head. That little hold up was enough for Lena to get to the quarters assigned to her and notice from quite afar Rob handing in the room the bags, including hers, and bugger off over the other stairway. Naturally, Ovcharenko knew the emergency code that Cate had on her room so without disturbing the singing contest, she snurched her things and finally hit the shower herself.

Lena rejoined Cate in the Infirmary just a minute or two after her friend made it in there. Redhead now had her fiery red mane loose and cascading down to her shoulders, letting it rest from all the ribbons and ties that held them out of the way during the last few missions. Her clothes were much more comfortable as well - a simple set of field uniform, which may or may not needed a bit of adjustment to sit proper.

"Looks like it went more or less okay, doesn't it?"

((Okay, I can't put two English words together tonight, and if this lame way to bypass having to post in the quarters as well doesn't work - edit it out))

 Brina looked at them longingly when she saw them returning. "You have good news for me? Please tell me so?"

 "We do indeed Brina. We have come to the conclusion that you should be sent home, but we do have rules. We will provide you with a radio and we want you to check in with us at least twice a day for the first week. Do think you can manage that?"

 Her eyes brightened visibly and before the girls knew it she was throwing the covers off to slip off the bed. "Oh yes, oh yes I can and thank you both!" She gently laid the baby on the bed to hug both of them.

Reese nodded.  "There is still much to learn about them.  It's a miracle Brina is as well as she is and the baby is healthy." She would certainly have to do  more research.

She followed Mel back over to Brina, seeing the hope in the young girl's eyes.   A smile touched her ruby lips when Mel gave Brina the good news.  "Hopefully we can get down to see you both as well," she said ad Brina hugged them.  "You take care of yourself and that little one. "

 "Alright then Brina we have a deal. Reese since we can't leave again we should call Major Lorne to do the taxi service this time don't you think?" Mel was thinking ahead, they were going to be busy today with general duties and she had heard they were planning to  move the people from Tamora soon and their animals which meant a lot of work for both departments.

 "Should I get dressed now? Are my clothes suitable?" She asked thinking they were somewhat dirty when she came in.

 "We'll fix that Brina. How'd you like a set of our clothes to wear?" The loose fitting green onesies would be perfect.

 Brina thought for a moment then nodded. "Yes that would do nicely thank you."

Reese thought for a minute before nodding.  "That is a good idea.  He'll take extra good care of them." She hated that they couldn't take Brina back themselves.

She hid a giggle behind her hand as Mel suggested scrubs.  Those were always so attractive.  At least they would be clean.

 "I'll call him as soon as we have Brina ready and the baby of course. Reese would you like to do that? Bundle our little cherub up ready to travel?" Already Melinda was heading for the change room to grab some clean scrubs, a tee and boots and socks. They already knew Brina's details as that had all been logged when she was admitted.

 "What is a cherub?" Brina asked out of curiosity.

 From within the room Mel's voice came back. "A baby angel." She was smiling not that anyone could see her. A moment later she reappeared with the pink/maroon scrubs the nurses wore, a pair of standard issue hospital joggers, socks and a white Tee shirt to go under it all. "Hmmm." She thought, looking at their patient, then Reese and herself in the mirror. "She'll need the other items Reese and neither you or I are big enough in one area." Her fingers were pointing to her chest. "The bum we can do. I'm going to see Kelly and ask her if she wants to donate a couple of hers; she's about the same size."

 Brina shook her head in laughter. "You two make me smile. I know of what you speak of and you are so kind. Teyla speaks much of the people of Atlantis, it is all true."

 "On our day." Mel added. She tapped her coms set. "Major Lorne its Melinda. Would you be available to take Brina and her babe back to the Mainland" After she made that call she was onto Kelly, who had no problems at all donating the required underwear. Mel zipped out for a moment to retrieve two pairs of her best notevenusedyet briefs and soon after that Brina was ready to roll. There was more giggling as Brina was shown how to manipulate the complex Earth garments, that was going to go down in Mel and Reese's memory books.

Mike felt confident enough to assert his desires and set boundaries. That was good.

Annie smiled at him. "Mike it is. How about we get you some house BDUs and then something to eat." She glanced at Carrie. "We should start with something simple, since your diet on the other planet was radically different. Don't want you to get sick. After that, you can be brave if you like, try new things."

She definitely wanted to try him on some of his favorite foods, see if the smells and flavors of those triggered any memories.

She took point through the door, aiming for the bathroom a little further down the corridor, nodding towards Cate and Lena, “That didn’t take you two very long.” No surprise there though, she’d been more surprised if they hadn’t showed up so soon.
Mike followed suite, but halted for a second in front of them, giving them a hint of a rather embarrassed smile, “Hey… again. I hope you can forgive my actions last time we met.”

Reese grinned broadly.  "Gladly," she answered,  moving to collect the blanket and the cutie that was going to be wrapped in it.  She cooed to  the baby, hoping one day she could be holding her own.

She looked over at Mel, trying hard not to laugh.  "I hadn't thought about that.  Hopefully Kelly doesn't mind." She had a feeling Kelly wouldn't mind at all..

Reese moves over to help Mel and Brina once she was sure the cutie was tucked onto the bed.  It would certainly make for an interesting story.

Avoiding Annie’s comment about the transporters for now, Carrie muttered towards the retreating back of Cate, “Christ, she makes an Energizer bunny looks like a slug on a glass wall,” then turned to Mike. “Come on, I’ll show you where you can clean up.”
Without a word, Mike followed her, in to another room down the hall. It smelled differently, clean, but without that annoying hard smell of disinfectant but instead there was a small hint of… flowers? That felt really odd.
“Do you know how a shower works?”
Mike looked at the nozzle and taps on the wall and shook his head, “No, not really?” he said hesitantly.
Carrie grinned, “Thought as much. Here, I’ll show you. It’s not exactly rocket science.”
Mike pulled in a sharp breath, “I know that expression! Yorvis never understood what it meant, and even if I don’t know the exact meaning, I know and have used the expression.”
“Told you it’s in there. Somewhere.” Carrie’s grin widened.

A few minutes and some instructions later, as well as having arranged for one of the orderlies to bring along some clean under wear, a t-shirt and a flight suite in his size to wait for him to put on once he was done. she finally left him on his own and returned to Annie in the corridor.

Hands behind her back and leaning towards the wall, facing Annie as well as the door to the showers, she said, “Look, Annie, I know I’m on your turf now, but from what I saw on board the Dread, I’d strongly advice against using the transporters.”

Elena was about to agree with Cate that Mike's particular case looked more like a mind wipe than anything when he and the others appeared. She actually believed that Mike being able to speak a terran language after that  wipe was a small mercy in its own. Now, it would have been a very fun story if they would have to teach him how to talk.

So, redhead just smiled at the very confused man before them.

 With Jennifer still away and not likely to return any time soon, Reese effectively had become the CMO with Melinda's helpful assistance. The staff had become reliant on both of them and even in the last two days Jen's office had become Reese's space. When the call came, it was obvious that one of them had to stay behind and knowing some of base's aversion to having a Veterinarian take care of them, it fell to Reese. "So, I guess you could do it either way Reese. Send Kelly or Helga, or do as Jen would do and go yourself. Personally if it were me, I'd go but the decision is up to you." In the meantime she'd answer the call just the same. "Hendrix, Doctor Olofsson here. We'll have someone with you shortly, stand by please."

A blinding flash of light illuminated the room briefly as three forms appeared. The first in front and foremost stepped forward looking for Melinda. Finding her, Jon spoke, "Doctor Ol-ool, umm," Jon mumbled trying to pronounce her last name and sighed shaking his head, "Sorry. Ma'am. Me and my team arrived from Tamora. The Tamorans brought along their animals and the animals need to be checked over. I think you know the drill? The animals need to be checked over for any possible viral infection that could be dangerous to the wildlife of the mainland. Anyways, we also need to get to the mainland in the southern area to scout it out for a possible campsite for the Tamorans. So, we need a puddle jumper."

Jon thought for a bit to see if he needed to add something and it dawned him as a lightbulb flashed over his head, "Oh yeah. I have the ancient gene. I was wondering, since I got training to pilot the AC 401. Maybe I could learn the basics of the puddle jumper? I've read the schematics, so I should probably learn to fly one of those.

Jon has the eagerness of a child when it comes to learning new things, but he kept his professionalism of an Team Leader to hide it. He was still pretty much a wide eyed child when it comes to seeing new things and trying them out.

"I should add Doctor,that these drafts, as the Tamorans call them, look healthy enough, but I think we'd near to see how they adapt to their new environement.  I could assist in the setting up of a test field, if you think that will help!  That would give us a chance to see if they could present a problem for the Tamorans, which could hopefully be contained.

"Umm," Jon sighed looking at both the doctor and Cooper who sidled up quickly to introduce himself who also added that bit about the gene. Closing his eyes, he massaged the bridge of his nose and shook his head muttering, "Hang on a bit, Morgan,"

Opening his eyes, Jon spoke after finding his voice, "Apologies, Doc. I might be a bit confused. It's First Lieutenant Jonathan Agathon," Jon spoke while mentally kicking himself in the noggin for the bad first appearance. With the desire to start over with this first meet, the team XO put on his best charming self, "Morgan, who you met. Just now. And my buddy behind me is Corporal John Valentine. I haven't been to the mainland. Obviously, the animals need tending to,"

Turning his attention to Morgan, he added straightforwardly, "We do need to scout out the Southern area of the Mainland a bit first for the Tamorans and their animals," Placing his arms behind his back while crossing them, he added while making eye contact with the doctor, "We are here to offer our assistance to make this transition for the Tamorans and their drafts easier as they could be here for a long while."

Giving Melinda a hopeful look, Jon kept his feelings about her to himself. She seemed pretty and Jon wanted to find the right time to ask her out. There wasn't anything on fraternizing with Atlantis personnel, but Jon kept a cautious pace as to not ruin the moment.

“I don’t suppose I could take some carrots or something with me too?” John was also excited to try the puddle jumper.

 Mel figured that she had come up against a team that hadn't yet fully integrated with one another, that wasn't her affair, as she was there to do her job. "I'm pleased to meet you all then. Let me say from the start, I'm not a flight instructor today, so you'll have put your aspirations of flying the Jumper in a holding pattern Lieutenant Agathon. I suppose you can ride up front with me and observe, that is the best I can offer. Although there isn't a great deal to it, as Mr Morgan has said it takes something from your mind, focus and concentration is how I would say it. After three or four flights with someone with you, you're pretty well set to go solo. Now, to the job at hand." She needed to ensure the Doctor's position wasn't empty when she left. "Chief Morgan, I'm possibly the second busiest Specialist on the base, there is so much life, so much animal life out here that we know nothing about."

 "Amelia, has Doctor Keller returned yet?" She asked over the radio.

 (https://i.imgfly.me/2bW9v.jpg)

 "Yes Doctor Olofsson, she arrived about an hour ago. She is in her rooms at the moment."

 "Thank you." Then she went to the wall intercom to punch in Jennifer's room. "Jen, its Melinda here, I'm going to the mainland with Commander O'Neil's team. Reese is on the Dreadnought at the moment, so could you please come and take over for me?"

  "I'll be there in three minutes Mel. I'll see you when you get back, take care and we have a lot to talk about."

 Melinda turned about, grabbed her small pack as she stood by the door. "Well then I'm free for the next few hours...." She paused almost to start giggling. "...carrots? Just how many animals are we dealing with by the way?" Then she started walking. "This way, we'll go down to the Jumper bay now."

 The journey back to the medical section was at a good pace, neither fast nor slow, merely as quick as you could push a gurney along without breaking a sweat. Along the way Abi reassured Carrie that she was indeed joking, letting her know that security personnel were required to have a minimum range score with both side arms and rifles of at least 94, putting them in the marksmen category.

 Just as they rounded the corner Jennifer came down from the opposite end to greet them.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/jenny%20Keller2_zpsfbhm3rct.jpg)

 "I just got the notice a minute ago." She said cruising up to the gurney. Looking down then up again she spoke to Carrie as a matter of protocol. "Something about he tried to take his own life Carrie, or did I get that wrong, it was a little garbled in translation." The SF who had radioed her was Italian, and typically he spoke all too quickly.

 "He was about to swallow something when we stopped him Doctor Keller." Kelly was going to ask when Jen had returned but that obviously was irrelevant now. "Then he became violent, overly violent. Doctor Svensson had him sedated by one of the guards with a Zat gun. We were lucky in that as he was carrying one of the few of those weapons we have on Atlantis."

 "I see. Very well then, room 4, its set up for security isolation."

“What she said, and now that we’re here,” Carrie inclined her head towards Kelly, then held out her hand, indicating for Jennifer to take point. “Please, lead the way.”
One minute later they were inside the isolation room, transferred the man over to the bed and made sure he was securely strapped down to it.
“Alright Jennifer, You’re the boss here. Any more ideas about what to test for other than the tox screen, CBC, Chem-7 and DNA sequencing we’ve already done? I would recommend keeping him sedated for the time being, but as I said - it’s you infirmary, you call the shots. No pun intended,” Carrie let out a small grin when she realized what she’d just said.

 Abi's medical knowledge extended to CPR, basic first aid and a decent little bit of bedside manner. Once the medicos started on the more technical side of things she was lost in the wilderness so to speak. "I'll stand guard at the door if its okay." She told them. The other thing was she tended to get a queasy watching Doctors work; she had enough of them hovering around her to do a lifetime.

(https://i.imgfly.me/k94kf.jpg)

 "A tough girl like her wanting to find an exit?" Jen smiled inwardly, nothing changed much, some of the men were worse. "That's fine Abi, nothing much will happen for the moment." She reassured her.

 She heard Carrie out, making an assessment as she spoke, that assessment came down to several factors. "Since he's only been hit with a Zat, that isn't going to last long. Kelly, prepare 4 ui of Clonidine for an intra." While she waited for that she finally gave Carrie her conclusions. "Going by what we historically know having dealt with other alien life forms and their little tricks, I'm going suggest one more avenue which I think might hold the key. We'll do a full C-scan and check for any 'unknowns'. I'm going out on a limb here Carrie but I think what we are looking for is something non medical if you follow my thinking."

(https://i.imgfly.me/eBXDB.png)

 Kelly quietly went about her work, preparing the intramuscular injection, once it was done she handed that over to Carrie. "I'll call up radiology and have them set up the scanner." She was on the phone in seconds coming back with their reply. "They'll be ready when you need them Jen."

As promised, a couple of minutes later they had the man under the scanner, heavily doped up without a chance of waking up anytime soon.
Standing next to the tech, Carrie crossed her arms over her chest, intently looking at the screen. What had she missed the last time… and why?
She blew out a frustrated breath, she really hated not knowing what they were dealing with.
“There!” The tech pointed towards the back of the neck, deep under the trapezius where it met the base of the scull and very close to the vertebrae. “As far as I know that thing is not supposed to be there?”
With a frown, Carrie leaned closer, “How come we missed that in the previous scan?”
The tech shrugged, “Well, you know how it goes – if you don’t look for it, you don’t see it. We weren’t looking for that… and I changed a few settings and filters to enhance anything with a higher density than the surrounding tissues. Default settings and trauma CTs has its limitations. As simple as that.”
“Ok, fair enough. Can you enhance it?”
“Sure. Just give me a sec.”
Turning towards Jennifer and Kelly, Carrie said, “What do you think? Leave it in or take it out?”

 Scratching her chin for longer than she normally would Jen saw the problem as soon as it was evident. Under normal circumstances she wouldn't hesitate to remove the thing if this 'person' had been developed as a normal everyday ordinary human. He wasn't, that alone presented a thousand and one problems right there and then. "It's happened to us before Carrie, don't think about it. There are times when the most obvious thing we find isn't all that obvious in hindsight. As to this, we don't know how it's connected to his brain as there is nothing to indicate how and knowing how advanced these Vanir are it could be there version of a wi-fi. We need to turn it off first before we remove and yes I know what you're going to say, but we need Rodney down here asap."
 
 (https://i.imgfly.me/eBXDB.png)

 Intrigued. That was the only description to give to Kelly as she watched intently. Snapping out of that after Jennifer spoke she said blandly. "Shall I call him?"

 "Yes, please do Kelly and if he complains we can ask Abi to go and drag him down for us."

 (https://i.imgfly.me/N8F9P.jpg)

 The security Chief glanced in the room when her name was mentioned. "Seriously Doc? Now that's a duty I wouldn't refuse."

 With the confirmation Kelly got on her radio to make the call. "Doctor McKay, this is the Infirmary. Doctor Keller needs you down here as quickly as you can please." Far too politely said to be fair.

Looking at the enhanced image, Carrie nodded and replied a bit absentminded, “Yeah, better safe that sorry. Even if it’s the enemy.”
Maybe it was just her imagination but she could almost swear were there some kind of very thin filaments reaching out from the device, entwining the spinal cord?
“I agree, trying to switch it off before trying to do anything sounds like a good idea,” she concluded as she straightened up. “I read Mike’s report about that girl you had here a couple of weeks ago.  Her name was…Tama? You think this might be something similar?”

 "We've had too many occurrences of these implanted alien things being booby trapped in our history. Well.....not so much here." She had to think, there was one incident close to being the same. "...well back on Earth we've had things go wrong coming from the Goa'uld haven't we?" Answering her own question. Jen's head spun around when McKay came a calling. "Yes Tama. I supposes its in the same field in a way, alien's futzing around human beings to change an outcome to their advantage. Anne was here fortunately, she guided me through it...darn scary that was Carrie."

 Just in time. "Sorry Rodney, but this is your work really, same thing, same issue, same villains." She had to elaborate. "Our Vanir friends have been doing some really nasty things. This poor man is in fact a clone they happened to create as part of their army; apparently there are a lot of them like him, but not all from the same original donor so to speak. What we have found though is their automatic response to us after capture as in A.." She held up a finger. "...their unwarranted instant hatred towards us, B....when cornered they try to kill themselves with a cyanide like pill we've found on them. Then we dig some digging so to speak, hence the C-Scan. See that little object there under the trapezius?

He had the smug look on his face only he had when only he could fix something, with his chin jutted out and an irritable tone

"Well, yes yes, of course, let's take a look shall we"

He moved over to the bed and took a look at the  Cscan

"Ummm yes, I wonder, what frequency is it on?, anybody know? of course not, ok, I'll need my radio spectrometer, which I will go get, don't touch anything till I get back,...............

As he turned to walk out he clicked his fingers turning back to talk to Jennifer

And with that he turned and  left

Before Carrie had a chance to react, McKay had come and left.
“That was… interesting. But very Rodney-ish, I guess.”
One quick look at the man’s vitals and nod of approval, Carrie walked over to the triage area and fetched the laptop sized ultrasound machine with its various transducers.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

“I think I might have an idea about what he’s going to do, hardly FDA approved use of a machine like this… then on the other hand – FDA really doesn’t have jurisdiction out here, right? I think we’ve proved that more than once.”

 Looking over her shoulder from the screen Jen could only but agree. "Very much so Carrie. In fact Rodney is a far better person when he's busy. If he's idle he can be intolerable so doing this gives his mind a puzzle to solve and a challenge. He'll find the answer I know it."

 The request for the Ultra sound was if not unusual, but like her counterpart Jen could see something in the direction this was taking. "I think I might have a clue in the same direction, we are after all dealing with a technology not too dissimilar to our own in many ways, if more advanced. The principles are the same though aren't they?"

(https://i.imgfly.me/XskZnq.jpg)

He walked back into the infirmary, he had been gone about ten minutes, and he was in full flow

"Ok, lets take another look at that CScan"

He walked over and took it off of the table, holding it up in front of him

"Ummmmm, I see"

He moved over to the patient and held up the spectrometer, turning it on as he approached.

"This should pick up anything transmitting, so....

He stopped as the spectrometer beeped when he got to the chip in the patients neck

.....Ummm, this is very very low, bout 1.3Mhz, looks like it's idling, due to him being asleep,......and, did you get my ultrasound?.

He  turned and looked at the women, then he spotted it and walked over, taking it off of the table and walking away

"I have an idea, a doppler pulse should sort it, I will be back when it is ready"

He held up his finger and paused in the doorway,  he turned slighty

"This may take an hour or so to complete, until then keep him asleep"

And he was off, the usual Rodney, ignoring everyone, and  really explaining nothing

 Still standing casually on guard at the door just waiting for something to happen, Abi's staring at both floor and ceiling came to an abrupt halt when Colonel Sheppard called her over the radio. She poked her head in the room to let them know what she was up to. "I'll leave two SF's here with you Doctor's, I have something to attend to with Colonel Sheppard."

 (https://i.imgfly.me/k94kf.jpg)

 "We intend to Rodney, now off you go." Again, she thought raising an eyebrow at Carrie.

 Abigail immediately after told them of her leaving and an assurance two guards will stay at her post. That was fine by Jen. "Take care Sergeant and thank you for your help."

 On the radio Abi sent her reply. "I'll be there in less than ten minutes Colonel. Lawson out." Before leaving she assigned the guards, popped her head back in quickly. "My pleasure doc. See you around soon." Then she was off at the run.

As promised he was back in just a little over an hour, he walked over to the bed and pulled over a nearby trolley, he put down the scanner on it.

"Ok"
He said, spinning around to look at Jennifer
"I have here something which will shut this little chip down, it's a bit like aaaa...   doppler pulse works, like a radio signal underwater, just like ships find submarines then by attuning the pulse to the same frequency as the device I  created a command code to shut it down.

He clicked on the machine and nothing was heard, only McKay's mouth

"See, there we have it, this will work on their pets, we should have no more bother with them, don't thank me yet"

 The device worked as predicted, that wasn't surprising given Rodney's abilities whether self proclaimed or not. He was quite simply that good. "I don't like to use the word Rodney, but if you can get that to work in a weaponised version that is just one more advantage we'll have over them. Now you had better see what Reese needs while Carrie and I move him into theater to remove that device. Carrie do you want to lead on this?"

<< Outside the Surgical area of the Infirmary >>

Stepping out of ones comfortable zone was, from time to time, a necessity when working at the SGC. This time it had meant for Carrie to do micro surgery in the proximity of the spinal cord, and being so close to the base of the scull, the stakes were higher than she liked and a mistake at any point could be disastrous for the patient in her care.
But the team had pulled it through and now the man was off to post op to recover from the anesthesia.
Carrie pulled off the cap and face mask as she slumped down on one of the chairs outside the OR. Rubbing her eyes, she let out a sigh out of pure relief. It had been a tense couple of hours ending up where she were now and for the first time since Rhiase and Todd had entered the Dread, she felt she was able to actually let go and relax. The neck and shoulders felt stiff and there was the unmistakably throbbing in her temples, not yet a head ache but if not taken care of, it would be.

Ronon made his way here first, both because he was going to check in with anyone who didn't know about the possibility of trouble and because he thought he heard Rodney was here. He looked around, before spotting people leaving the surgery area. Midas and Wolf both were carrying body armor and Stunners to hand out, along with their own weapons already on them.

"Hey. Anyone see Rodney around here? Oh, and Jennifer, if she's free. Need to talk to her." Ronon said.

 Slipping off her gown and gloves, Jennifer wiped her brow. "I would not like to have to do that a hundred times over if the reports of these clones are true, would you Carrie?

"Well, I'll wait for her then." Ronon said. Midas first went about prepping his first aid gear from the medical supplies, while Wolf waited by the equipment.

 A frown wrinkled Kelly's brow. It wasn't as if with all the rumors going about that given time it was expected by any means. For it meant that the medical staff were to arm themselves which was in total contradiction to their ethos; but if it meant staying alive and protecting patients, Kelly wasn't going to argue. "I understand Ronon, if it comes to it we will stand with the others. I would like to ask though for the few patients we have do you think they'd be safer with Teyla's people on the Mainland?"

 While she was talking she noticed what the others were doing. "Petty Officer, in that closet left of the door, there are pre-packed first aid field kits, take as many as you think you'll need." They were hefty in their camoflaged packs, two was fairly easy to carry without too much burden.

Looking up towards Jennifer, Carrie nodded, “Yeah, I sure hope so, because my nerves are not cut out for this. I choose trauma for a reason.” She poureda glass of juice from the pitcher on the table next to her, took a swig and leaned back in the chair.
“Look, why don’t you go check to make sure your infirmary still stands while I’ll take care of postop procedures for the man and write the surgical report. Ok?”
‘…and get some ibuprofane for that head ache…’ she added internally.

“See you later then,” Carrie raised her glass at her colleague’s retreating back, then got up and after a quick stop in the pharmacy room to gat the before mentioned ibuprophen, she continued over to the post op area to check on their patient. Hopefully he would make a full recovery, but as always, it was a bit of a nervous waiting game until the patient was awake and fully alert. Having put down orders of pain management and check up’s for the next couple of hours in writing, she asked her way through the infirmary until she managed to find an, at least semi-secluded area, to sit down and write the surgical report.

Since it had been a fairly straight forward procedure, the report was very succinct and to the point, so after another proof read, Carrie hit save and leaned back in the chair, rubbing her temples. The pills she’d taken had started to do their work, so the head ache had now more or less been reduced to a small discomfort.
She clicked her radio, “Dreadnought medical, Forster. Svensson here. How are things holding up at your place? Over.”

Finally the pacing could stop; knowing she probably were running a few nurses nuts by walking back and forth like she did, but never the less, sitting down was worse.
Carrie clicked her radio, “Copy that, Jennifer. We’re on our way,” and then called towards Reese at the other end of the room. “Reese! You coming?”
