    Two easily confused beings and no insurance

    Ever curious and nosy, Xiao Xiao had always wanted to visit the hospital but couldn’t find a good enough reason to poke her nose into it. What a good thing Livewire came along, now she had the perfect excuse to visit the place!

    Frowning slightly at the sound of all the traffic that passed by, Xiao managed to direct the cybertronian to the hospital, gaping in awe from her spot on Livewire’s shoulder as the doors swished open. “Magic doors~!” the squirrel cooed then sniffed the air excited, picking out whatever cleaning products they use, the flowers and all the scents of the people who came through the exact same doors.

    Thankfully, she wasn’t too distracted and managed to spot the sign saying ‘Robot Wing’. She patted lightly at Livewire’s cheek and pointed at the sign. “That way?”

    Livewire is a robot, yes? That’s what metal people are called, yes? This squirrel isn’t too sure but she hoped the walk here didn’t damage her new friend’s foot too much.

    Livewire winced with each step that she took by her new friend's directions.

    "Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, exclamation of pain, ow,..."

    She kept walking on, trying REALLY HARD to not step on anyone (why are they so near her feet?!) and only falls into the road ONCE. Yes. This is a cause of pride.

    She comes up to a large white building that has the word "Hospital" on a sign along with multiple listings of the word in many different languages.

    "This must be it!" She walks inside and pauses as her New Friend starts twitching, kind of acting like she's sniffing stuff. She keeps walking until they show up at the "Robot Wing".

    "THIS must be it!" Livewire makes a happy sound and tries to walk through the door, only to run into the doorframe and fall backwards, clutching her head. "Owwww...."

    The robotic Doctor was once again prowling the empty halls of the Hospital, currently the halls of the Robot Wing. She had been fixing up the joints in her hands, the tiny digits were used so much, they occasionally locked up. Although lately, with all of the inactivity, the locking up had died down.

    She began making her way out of the Wing, opened the door, and almost ran into two peculiar specimens. The first thing she noticed was a red and white squirrel, who seemed to be able to speak! Portal Breach being what it was, such a thing wasn't exactly unheard of though, of course. The second person she noticed in front of her was a robot, much bigger than herself, with a peculiar yellow and white checkered pattern. Must be Cybertronian.

    "Good day you two! My name is Dr. Salli, do you need any help?" She asked, actually pretty interested in why the strange duo had come to the Hospital.

    Livewire heard a voice and onlined one optic to look up at the newcomer from the floor. "Yes....yes please. I require some assistance. My stabilizing servo is sparking and I do believe that I just dented my helm. ...could you help?"

    Livewire leans up and tries to stand so that she's not just lying down in the middle of the hallway but her ankle gives out and she collapses with much more noise than before. "Ow..."

    When Livewire walked into the doorframe, Xiao was unlucky enough to join her in the frame-smack, causing her to totter then roll off the cybertronian’s shoulder, somehow landing on her feet and blink dizzily up at the robot lady in front of them.

    “Hello, Miss Robot Lady,” she squeaked then flattened her ears when Livewire’s foot finally gave out. How were they suppose to drag her into the Robot Wing now? The squirrel hopped forward and curled her tail on the robot’s ankle (careful to avoid the sparks) as if the cushy fur could make it all better again.

    “Livewire hurt her foot!” said Xiao Xiao as if that wasn’t obvious enough by now. “Do you heal metal feet here too? She doesn’t have an insure-ants, whatever that is.”

    Salli tilted her head a bit as the young Cybertronian looked down at her and explained her problems. Even in a sitting position, the robot was taller than herself. A dented helm was easy enough to fix, but a sparking servo? Seemed as if there was an underlying problem there, something she'd have to investigate.

    The bot tried to raise herself off the ground just to fall with a loud clank. Salli winced a bit and smiled reassuringly at the robot. "Its okay, there's no one else here in this place and this is close enough to the wing. you might as well just stay put, don't want you injuring yourself even more, do we?" She said, turning to face the small squirrel, still smiling. "Robot feet are fixable, depending on the problem, and the hospital is free, no need for insurance!" What a darling little squirrel. She turned back to Livewire.

    "Now...your sparking servo. How long has it been sparking?" She asked, walking closer to inspect the damaged servo.

    Livewire looked down at her servo and was temporarily distracted by all of the pretty colors sparking from the joint. "Wha....oh! Um...maybe...half an hour or so? I'm not really sure."

    ((Wow you respond fast xD))

    Only a half an hour? Then the problem probably wasn't life threatening or anything like that. She gave the appendage a few experimental pokes, and a few sparks shot out, fizzling harmlessly on her metal arms.

    "How did you injure it in the first place?"

    Livewire "oohs" at the new spark shower. "Umm....I jumped? A lot higher than I think I was supposed to?"

    ((Just a small reminder, there's a 100 word limit on posts! It doesn't have to be exactly 100, somewhere in the 90s is fine too ^^))

    "Oh, that should be an easy fix then!" she smiled, looking at the servo again. With a small grunt and a little effort, she lifted a plate of metal where the sparking was coming from. A few more sparks came out, but Salli ignored them, focusing on the matter at hand.

    Underneath were several wires, one of which was kinked a bit, and sparking. It seems that by jumping, the wires inside rubbed against the interior metal of her leg, exposing some of the delicate wires inside. A very easy fix indeed!

    "I'll be right back!" She grinned, dashing back into the robot wing. She grabbed out a small roll of black duct tape and returned, hands back inside of Livewire's servo, as she tried to wrap the tape around the exposed bit of wire. Only a few minutes of work and it was done.

    "One down, one to go. Where's your dent, exactly?" she asked, cocking her head.

    Livewire watches her fix the kink in the leg, intensely focused on all of the parts that she has never seen before inside of her leg. "What's that do? And that? Why-Why are there so many different colors in one limb?! What does that tape stuff do? So what happened with the leg? Is it fixed now?" She keeps asking many, MANY questions, not even noticing that the leg is fixed until the Doctor closes it back up.

    "Wait, what? Oh! Um...the dent....uh.......Hold up." Livewire feels around her helm for a few moments until she finds the dent, wincing when her fingers brush across it. "Found it! It's right here!" She leans her head down closer to the doctor and sits very still.

    Xiao hid behind Dr. Salli’s leg as she watched the going ons, not wanting sparks to fly out and hit her in the face – though the sparks were pretty pretty and she was tempted to leap in and attempt to catch one with her paws. When Livewire leant in for her head to be examined, the squirrel ran up Salli’s leg and back until she was on the robot lady’s shoulder, just so that she too can peer in and examine the dent. Nosy squirrel is nosy after all.

    “It’s just a dent, yes? She’s not broken in any way, is she?” asked Xiao Xiao worriedly. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have asked her jump. I didn’t know she’ll break so easily.”

    Salli blinked, an action which made a small clicking noise as the thin metal of her 'eyelids' met, slightly stunned by the young 'bot's many questions. She'd have to answer them as best she could then.

    "The tape is going to keep the wire that's causing all of these sparks closed up and safe. Your jumping seemed to have made the wire rub against the inner metal of your leg in the wrong way, and the protective coating was rubbed off and exposed. It should be fine now, as long as the tape holds, and if not, I can always apply more later!" She explained calmly.

    As she began to lean in to inspect the dent on Livewire's helm she felt something scurry up her leg and onto her shoulder, smiling as she saw that it was just the young squirrel. "Don't worry, she's going to be fine!" she assured, looking back at Livewire and hesitantly giving the dent a small rub. Felt like it was a good sized dent, but not one that was bad enough to damage the interior. "Its just a simple dent, nothing to worry about. Don't worry, little squirrel, there was no way you could have known this would happen! And you brought her here to fix it, which was nice!"

    Indeed, not everyone on PB was as nice as Xiao, to bring Livewire to the hospital like she did. She tapped her chin, trying not to move too much and knock the young squirrel off. Finally she snapped her hands and grabbed out a small walkie talkie.

    ---

    In another part of the Hospital, Floyd the male nurse was doing the most important part of his job: Playing with paper footballs. He squinted his eyes, aimed the folded paper towards the trashcan, and just when he was about to flick the thing off of his desk-

    "Nurse Floyd? Someone? Please pick up!"

    "What the hell is that?!" Floyd yelled, jumping up and looking for the mysterious voice, paper football forgotten on the sign in desk. A bit of looking around and he saw a walkie talkie on a chair nearby. "When the hell did we get these..." He mumbled, before grabbing the talkie up. "Uuh....hello?" He said into it hesitantly.

    "Nurse Floyd! Its Dr. Salli, I need a clean plunger, bring it to the robot wing!"

    "Uuuh......okay." He wasn't about to start quetioning his boss. He liked having a paycheck. Without another word, Salli appeared to disappear off the talkie and Floyd sighed. Darn, almost made it to 42 hits. But work had to start at some point. He set out to do what was asked.

    ---
    Back with Salli, she grinned a bit as she put the walkie talkie away. Such devices were useful for communicating throughout the hospital. "Alright, my Nurse should be here soon with a plunger, I'll be using it to get that dent out of your head!" She explained to the duo.

    Livewire held very still as the Doctor examined her helm, not wanting to accidentally bump into her and hurt her or anything (She can't help that she's tall and big!).

    "So...why did it rub up against the inside of my leg?" Livewire didn't particularly care to repeat the painful experience, and wanted to try and stop it from happening again.

    While Livewire was thinking up more questions to ask the Doctor suddenly pulled out a strange device and started speaking into it! ...why was she doing that?

    "Nurse Floyd? Someone? Please pick up!"

    What's a nurse? ...is Floyd someone's name? Livewire thought so, but she couldn't be sure of it. Just as she opened her mouth to ask if Floyd was a name, the small device SPOKE!!! Was is a small robot?! That is so COOL!!!

    "Is that a robot?!"

    She was busy preening herself and grinning proudly at Dr. Salli's words. Why yes, she was kind. Very kind indeed! What a nice doctor! To know that Xiao brought Livewire here because she was kind and not because she was just about drowning in curiosity about the contents of the hospital. Oh no, she wasn't curious at all.....Oh fine. Yes, yes, she lied. She was curious and that was the reason she was so eager to bring Livewire here. But she didn't correct the doctor anyway, liking the compliment and fluffing up her tail delightedly at hearing it. Her RP-er really should stop waffling and babbling nonsense when she's typing as Xiao.

    When the walkie talkie came out, Xiao Xiao leant so precariously forward that she almost fell off the doctor's shoulder, then she chattered squirrelishly and leap up and down several times in excitement. "A magic box that talks!"
