    We're back again

    Date: January 15

    The walk to the hospital was a damn painful one. Tally's jaw, which had been bordering upon stomach churning painful had swollen up as she walked. It felt like a orange was trying to grow out of the side of her head, not to mention the bruising that was going on. Her total wound count was impressive. A injured jaw, a split lip, a broken nose, a black eye, a head wound, and god only knows how her abdomen looked. Rasa should have just carved his initials onto her skin, right next to that giant purple impression of his fist that was probably never going to go away. Not that she was complaining, cause she wasn't. Hell, that had been one of the best fights of her life! Even if it had left her pretty broken and beaten, it had still been fun as hell!

    She only hoped Rasa had as much fun as she did.

    Walking into the hospital Tally scrunched her nose ever so slightly, that hospital smell. Ug, got her everytime. This had to be worse for Rasa then her though. He really seemed to have a thing against hospitals for some reason. Walking up to the front desk Tally pulled out her pad of paper and wrote down a note for the person at the desk.

    Hey there. We need some help, we seem to have screwed up eachothers jaws. Tally motioned to Rasa's mandibles before pulling down her scarf so that the person at the desk could get a better look at just how swollen and strange her own jaw looked. Hopefully it would be an easy enough repair and they'd both be able to talk again soon.

    The walk to the hospital was incredibly painful, but for different reasons. Rasa'Jeqkogoai could stand a bit of pain; he had been trained for such things. A few broken bones and torn muscles could be easily overlooked. Going to the place of doctors and bloodletting instruments, however, was not. In this, the Sangheili felt pained like no other sensation in the world right now. Fortunately he could still walk, his legs rather responsive despite all the pain in his face and upper body. The Tally had done a good job, and somehow... he slightly smiled to himself, pleased. For a human, and a small one at that, the Tally held her own quite well. Such spirit and fire was admirable.

    His mood soured, though, once they entered the... alas... hospital. Upon stepping foot the Sangheili let forth a low growl, but he kept it to himself. Only the Tally would be able to hear if she bothered to listen. Otherwise, Rasa'Jeqkogoai admitted himself willingly into the sterile establishment and said not a word. Not like he could, anyway. His jaw was still wound up tightly in all the gauze and melted ice packs he so proudly wore. Ugh, the smells in this place... Alcohol, gauze, death, decay... Disgusting.

    Upon waiting at the receptionist, he thought they called it, Rasa'Jeqkogoai did not feel he had to show his mandibles but he complied. With a finger he brought out a little of the gauze to reveal swollen appendages and kept quiet. Let the doctors handled this, not him. He refused.

    The Hospital that smelled like death and decay actually smelled like flowers and cleanliness, according to the hospital description page. Poor hospitals and the stereotypes that surround them! But you both are excused, because this RPer is easy-going. And besides, most hospitals do smell like that.

    Nurse Floyd had been reading the Newspaper at the desk, humming to himself a bit. Today was a good day, a quiet day! Quiet until the doors opened and he saw a rather large alien and a really beat up woman walk in. Neither of them spoke. Instead the girl wrote something down, and from the size of her jaw, she must have broken it.

    "How in the fuck did you mess up each other's jaws?!" He blinked for a moment, thinking of something. "...If this is a case of domestic abuse, I gotta call it in, man."

    Rasa growled beside Tally, making her discreetly look up at the other. He really disliked hospitals didn't he? Tally moved to lay a hand on him in a comforting gesture, but realized what she was doing and dropped her hand back down to her side. It was not unusual for humans to express concern or comfort one another, especially towards someone they were fond of, by simply touching them. Rasa wasn't a human though, and Tally wasn't that much for concern or comfort of other people. Unless they were her friends or she favored them. Did that mean that she thought of Rasa as a friend?

    Perhaps she did. Yes, she did. However she would give the Sangeheili his space, they were two different species and Tally had no idea how Rasa would react to being touched.

    And then Floyd went and started saying stupid things.

    Dr. SALLI wrote:"How in the fuck did you mess up each other's jaws?! ...If this is a case of domestic abuse, I gotta call it in, man."


    If Tally could have vocally protested she would have, fortunately for Floyd she was unable to. Tally moved to the next page and quickly wrote out a response.

    No, this is not domestic abuse. We were just having a spar and we ended up hurting each other. Honestly.

    Bah! Flowers and other scents! All hospitals were of death to Rasa'Jeqkogoai. The stereotypes were fit for humans, not Sangheili. It was not like the warrior could tell the difference since every hospital he went to smelled familiar and thick with sterilization and medication. It was hard for an alien under his circumstances to ignore. Perhaps he could not smell flowers as well as the Tally? He eyed a nearby potted plant and snorted at it. Wait, what was this about domestic abuse?

    To hear the human at the counter, this the Nurse Floyd so said his name tag, Rasa'Jeqkogoai walked right on over and - SLAM! He threw a heavy fist down upon the counter and growled; this time audibly. While he couldn't speak and he couldn't write necessarily, the look in his amber eyes said it all.

    "Get us to a room or I break you. Slowly." No one liked a sore jaw, not even Rasa'Jeqkogoai. Maybe the Nurse Floyd would require the Tally's comforting gesture?

    Rasa slammed his fist upon the counter and growled at Floyd, startling Tally and probably Floyd as well. She wasn't sure if it was the domestic abuse comment that got the other angry or the fact that Floyd questioned like he was suppose to instead of helping them. But Rasa seemed to be getting more and more agitated with every second.

    This time Tally did forgo what boundaries they might have had as species and reached out to grab Rasa about the arm. Of course it wasn't really grabbing, she couldn't get her hand anywhere close to around his arm. However the message was still clear. Calm down.

    Honestly, she could get that Rasa hated hospitals. Hell she'd even by that Floyd might have greatly insulted him, what with him coming from such an honor bound species and all. But getting mad and lashing out at the nurse wasn't going to get them anywhere closer to getting her jaw and his mandibles fixed. Tally kept her hand on Rasa's arm for a second longer before releasing him. She looked over at Floyd, hopefully the nurse wouldn't be the type to get too upset and call security on them. That wouldn't get them patched up at all.

    Ball is in your corner Floyd, what's going to happen now?

    He read Tally's note and shrugged. "Sorry then. Its just...you know, two people come in, a gal and a guy, and their jaws are kinda screwy...I ask every couple that comes in if its domestic abuse. Even two gals or two dudes!" Not really.

    The big fella walked over to his desk. "What's u-"

    SLAM

    Between the fist that was now on the desk, and the absolutely murderous look in the alien's eyes, Nurse Floyd was frozen up like a rabbit that almost got pounced on. After a few more moments, Floyd slid off his chair and onto the ground, staring up at the ceiling.

    "Oh...oh my God...guys....I think I saw my life flash before my eyes..." And boy, wasn't THAT an impressive set of flashbacks. Floyd picked himself back up shakily and grabbed up two clipboards and looked up at the two.

    "Let me take you to your rooms! Sharing alright?" Damn man, no respect. The cops thought they recieved no love for their job? All he wanted to know was whether this was a situation that NEEDED the cops! Interspecies relationships aren't so rare anymore after all. Note to self: See this alien guy at the desk, get a different nurse to take care of him.

    Hah, that certainly got the human nurse to do what they wanted, no? Rasa'Jeqkogoai was not mad, however. He wasn't even angry. But agitated, yes. Being in a hospital was not fun, and the alien glanced downward at the Tally's hand curiously. To calm him? Rasa'Jeqkogoai gave a small, innocent shrug in response: "Intimidation; necessary to get things done at times." Not that the Tally would understand this, of course. Hopefully that shrug and relatively ease in his musculature was enough for her to deduce that the Sangheili was not inclined to fight.

    After all, fighting a nurse was hardly honorable. The nurse Floyd was just doing his job, no matter how lowly in the alien's eyes. Now all they needed to do was wait for a room...

    Ah good, Rasa seemed to have only done what he had as a form of intimidation. Or something along those lines, either that or he just flipped from angry to calm on a dime. Did he always do that? Tally hoped it was a form of intimidation and not because he was actually angry about something. An angry Rasa was a very scary Rasa, and not something Tally hoped to see.

    "Let me take you to your rooms! Sharing alright? Floyd looked plenty shaken by what Rasa did. Nurse looked like he was about to pee his pants.

    Tally nodded, she didn't particularly care whether she was stuck in the same room as Rasa or not. She just wanted her jaw fixed. Tally moved back and waited for Floyd to lead the two of them to their room so they could get fixed up.

    Neither objected to sharing a room, so Nurse Floyd walked through the doors and lead them to the hospital rooms. He walked quietly, and pretty fast too. He was kinda eager to get these two healed up and gone, the gruff alien more than the admittedly hot lady. Floyd liked them fiesty!

    As he walked, he scribbled on the clipboard, writing down that both had their jaw or jaw equivalent broken in a spar, and that they probably had other injuries too, although the jaw injuries were most important. He opened the door to the room for them. "I'll be back with Dr. Salli!" He left quickly and sure enough, the next noise they heard was the light 'clack' as her metal heels hit the floor. She walked in, Nurse Floyd behind her almost nervously, and gave the two a polite smile.

    "The citizens of Portal Breach sure enjoy their spars, don't they?" She gave the clipboard another glance before looking back at them. "Alright, the fastest way to heal your jaws would be an injection of nanobots, especially since you can direct me to what your other injuries are and I can treat them accordingly. Either of you two have any objections to the nanobots?"

    Being in the same room did not bother Rasa'Jeqkogoai. In fact, he trusted the Tally well enough to know that she would not do anything underhanded. Such was the faith a fighter will share with a fellow blood-stained warrior. But as for the nurse, and not the Nurse Floyd? Rasa'Jeqkogoai eyed the strange metal construct, dubious. What was this? Who was she? These nanobots she spoke of; were they safe enough for different physiologies? The alien had his doubts, but he did keep his poise. If nanobots would be the best, not only the fastest, way to heal their jaws then Rasa'Jeqkogoai would have to endure it. A minor setback for greater outcomes.

    Rasa'Jeqkogoai nodded to this... the Nurse Sally, giving his consent that she had permission to fix his busted mandibles. And... what strange foot attire she wore. The Sangheili had never seen anything like them! Why did they click?

    Ah, it was Sali! Tally gave the woman a small wave in greeting. Sali sure had it right about people enjoying their spars. At least Tally did, she couldn't speak for the rest of Portal Breach. Though they must have as well if Sali made the comment.

    Nanobots. The little miracle of Portal Breach, they were the best way to get out of the hospital quickly. Shaking her head was painful so Tally did it slowly. No, she did not mind nanobots. The faster her jaw could heal the better off she would be.

    How nanobots would react to Rasa though she had no idea. The hospital used them on people all the time though right? They had to know what would kill people and what wouldn't, right?

    Ah good! Both of the patients seemed to have no problem with receiving the nanobots. Turning to Floyd she took the small handheld gun that he was holding and quickly sterilized the needle like tip of the gun. Rummaging around in her pockets, she removed two small vials that contains a silver blue liquid.

    Nanobots of course. The small robots would travel quickly through the bloodstream, going directly to the targeted damaged area and repair it. Of course the process was different for each species, and measurements of course were always taken to ensure that no one would have an allergic reaction. There was no need to fear, Tally and Rasa were in good hands.

    Now you may feel a slight pinch as well as a tingle as the nanobots begin to repair your jaws. But you shouldn't feel any pain. Dr. Salli approached the larger of the two first. She gave him a calming smile as she injected the serum, a small beeping noise coming from the gun as it fired. Moving away from him now she removed the tip of the gun and disposed of it in the hazardous material trash can. She removed another tip from an air tight baggie and began to disinfect it as well replacing the used vial with a fresh one.

    She carefully place the tip of the gun to Tally's arm and pulled the trigger, injecting the human with the nanobots as well.

    There now, you should be able to talk again in the next five to ten minutes. Dr. Salli smiled softly at the two of them.

    ...Was that... was that a gun? "Hrrrgh..." While Rasa'Jeqkogoai knew that he had practically consented to this procedure, that didn't mean that he would necessarily like it - especially that gun. You don't show a trained and armed soldier a gun and then proceed to wave it around their face! What about post traumatic stress disorder? Thankfully the Sangheili knew the difference between a hostile firearm and... well, whatever this thing was. Hey, what was in that - OUCH! "Hmph!"

    Consider that to be a prime piece of Sangheili meat the Salli was messing with. Mandibular areas were sensitive for Sangheili! And it was also broken, so... Rasa'Jeqkogoai quickly placed a comforting hand upon his jaw and the alien curled his toes - well, the thick stubs that were his toes. A trained warrior didn't cry, but that certainly did smart... And to think! There were little machines now swimming within his proud, thick veins; pumping alongside with the rhythm of his bulky heart. What would those down in his platoon think about that? They'd surely jest and laugh at his plight. Then again, they were all dead or... what did people around here say? Somewhere, but anywhere instead of here? Something like that.

    Regardless of what he had just endured, Rasa'Jeqkogoai wasn't ungrateful. He tipped his head respectfully to the Dr. Salli and her nurse, the Floyd. But, boy. He certainly didn't want their sorry jobs.

    Tally's eye twitched as the gun went off and injected her. It wasn't so bad, but she still rubbed the spot on her arm anyways. Tally nodded in thanks to Salli, ten minutes to fix a jaw that was either dislocated or broken was an amazing feat.

    There now, you should be able to talk again in the next five to ten minutes.

    Tally nodded and lifted her hand to her jaw, carefully touching it. The tingling was already starting for her. She could feel the mending slowly starting to happen, huh, so was this what it was like to have regenerative abilities? She'd have to ask bloodscream at some point, he'd no more about that than anyone. Tally waited patiently while her jaw continued to mend.
