    Doctor Doctor, Tell Us the News...

    ((Set after: This ))

    Time: 2:34 P.M.
    Date: August 2, 2012

    Bun-Bun had declined going to the Hospital, deciding instead to go to the Inn, which meant it was Kev the Kryptonistanian and Bonkers the Bobcat toon that were making their way down the street to the hospital. The Hospital was the Emerald city, now if only the road was made of yellow bricks instead of blue Phazon...

    'Course, they wouldn't need to go to the hospital, hoping they'd have a cure, if Kev hadn't hugged his friends. Infected for an hour and already two were infected by him. Which meant Gaara had indirectly infected them. Wonder if water would be a good enough weapon to use on the boy...might turn him to mud.

    Anyways, down the blue phazoned roads, Bonkers and Kev walked, avoiding the stuff as they went, on their way to see the Doctors! "You know Bonkers, I think things are starting to finally look up! If anyone can help its a Doctor! We're gonna fix this, and we're gonna be okay!" And Bun-Bun might forgive him! Oh, he certainly hoped the bunny would, it was still too early in their friendship for them to stop being friends already!

    However, the happy walking came to a pause as the duo came close to the hospital...and saw the energy barriers surrounding it. Kev looked at it with widened eyes. The blue was all over the hospital's building, from the very top of it to the corners of the street it was on. "That wasn't here a few days ago..."

    Oh this did NOT bode well at ALL.

    Bonkers followed Kev with a cheer in his step, turning the save walk more into a game than a potentially life threatening situation as he hopped from phazon-hole to phazon-hole.
    "You know Bonkers, I think things are starting to finally look up! If anyone can help its a Doctor! We're gonna fix this, and we're gonna be okay!"
    At this rate the bobcat was glad to be hearing this come from Kev himself. There was frankly nothing he could possibly add to this, so he nodded with an approving hum in his tone and a slight chuckle.

    He knew it wasn’t too far to the hospital anymore. Given that they’d just been there a few days ago, Mrs. Salli would surely be surprised to see them again so soon!
    And then, from the corner of his eyes, Bonkers saw that Kev had suddenly stopped and bewilderedly held the next jump back.
    "That wasn't here a few days ago..."


    Blinking, the bobcat’s glance shifted from his mouthless friend towards the building in question and…
    “Oh…”
    His guts knot together a bit.

    It was the same kind of shield that had been put up on the Stock Pot Inn (according to what Bonkers had heard at least) and the Orphanage. He just… wouldn’t have expected it to be on the hospital as well. After all the hospital was supposed to help people in need, right? Not lock them out, right?!

    Well, you know what they say!
    Even after the possibility of an infection Bonkers had made sure to not get in any contact with the blue goo, after all – as Kev had put it; maybe they were not infected at all. Maybe the water shower had helped! Oh how great that would have been!

    Holding that thought tightly the toon danced his way over to the shield and glanced at it like he was about to challenge it to a duel. The static it emitted tickled awkwardly on his skin and caused some of his fur to stand upright.
    Well, I suppose there was only one way to find out!



    BOING!

    Catch him, Kev! CATCH HIM!

    The two of them stared at the strange blue stuff. For a moment, Kev almost thought it was Phazon, covering the building, but no. It was a different blue, and it didn't look like...goop. It looked all...sciencey.

    Bonkers didn't say much, but Kev could tell he was likewise uneasy about this little situation right here. If it wasn't phazon...what could this thing be? Why was it here? Mind you, Kev did not know of the shield around the inn or orphanage. He watched, curious and uneasy, as Bonkers got closer to the blue wall that was between them and assistance. It reminded him a bit of Impa's shield spell...was this a shield?

    Bonkers suddenly tried to go through it, but the wall-shield would not have it, and instead of going through, Bonkers was sent flying back. Kev gasped, moving to watch the flying bobcat. He was barely able to catch him, catching him more with his body than his little noodley arms. He stared at the shield, shocked.

    "Why would the hospital be keeping people out?!" Hospitals help people! And they definitely needed some help! Except...the phazon...infections...of course. They would need to keep that phazon out in order to treat and protect their patients. Which meant...

    "You and Bun-Bun must definitely be...infected." His tone was regretful and he placed the bobcat back on the ground, keeping a hand on his shoulder. Guess that cure was out of the question. Bun-Bun wouldn't be happy to hear about this...

    “Woooaaaaaaaa-”
    Thankfully Bonkers crashed comfortably into Kev, who broke off his little flight-adventure that could have taken a far worse outcome if you considered the current environment.
    Knowing this, the bobcat clung unto the alien and muttered a hearty “Thank you,” before he shook off the layer of ash that now covered his body.

    "Why would the hospital be keeping people out?!"
    Having a vague idea about this Bonkers’s gaze wandered away from Kev and locked back upon the hospital as his friend pondered the question.

    "You and Bun-Bun must definitely be...infected."
    The bobcat’s ears twitched as the Alien placed him back on the ground and rested a hand on his shoulder. Bonkers’s eyes however, still rested on what kept them from their best hope yet.

    They wouldn’t really do this… would they? Maybe they didn’t even know about it! Maybe – as good-willed as the bobcat knew it was – these shields had been set up without their consent?
    Placing his own hand on Kev’s and softly removing it from his shoulder Bonkers approached the shield again. While still avoiding contact with the phazon, the spring in his step was gone and he didn’t appear to be overly careful anymore at this point.

    Having arrived at his previous spot again, Bonkers let a hand run in close proximity of the shield. It left a trail of dancing, probably hurtful, energy wherever it moved. A slight frown grew on his face as he glanced past the shield at the doors and windows of the hospital.
    “SAAAALLIIII!” he suddenly screamed at the wall, hoping that maybe she’d hear him and come out and excuse herself and tell them that all of this was just some terrible misunderstanding and that of course they had a cure and that they could have it.
    And in case she didn’t quite hear that yet, he slammed a fist against the shield much like you would knock on a door, just in case there might be someone watching by the windows.

    And as though nothing had just happened, he casually crossed his arms behind his back, focused his eyes on the shield and chirped a hopeful “Knock, knock!”
    Your turn, Salli - you know what you had to say!

    Kev gave the bobcat a nod. "You're welcome!" Least he could do after all! He gave the bobcat a pat on the head as he shook off some...ash? "You okay?" That didn't look right! Then again, Bonkers was a toon. Its like he was genetically made to not act or be normal. But then that's why Bonkers was such an interesting little fella.

    His hand on Bonkers' shoulder was slowly removed and he watched curiously, as Bonkers seemed ready to try again. He took a step back, ready to again catch him in case he went flying. He seemed only to be touching it, not trying to run through it, when-

    Bonkers wrote:“SAAAALLIIII!”

    Kev placed his hands on the sides of his head, startled by the sudden yelling from those tiny bobcat lungs. "Ow..." He then knocked on the shield rather hard and...was that the start of a knock knock joke. Kev couldn't help a small chuckle.

    "Who's there?" Might as well make the most of their situation. Crying over spilled milk only made you twice as wet as before. Unfortunately, it seemed that the Doctors inside couldn't hear them. Or they didn't want to...

    (Kudos to the Knock Knock joke go to Chowder, because I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY WORK %D)

    “Orange!” Bonkers responded at Kev’s question. He’d expected an answer from inside, but that didn’t seem to be coming, “Are you glad I didn’t say… BANANA?” and out of nowhere, the toon had pulled a banana from off screen. Waiting whether or not there might still be an answer coming from inside or not he carelessly peeled it and began to nom it, but by the time that he was done eating it… no response either.
    His shoulders sagged a bit and he let the Banana Peel drop to the floor before heartily jumping upon it and… zooming right ingot Kev’s direction again.

    CRASH!

    There they lay now on the ground,
    Phazon puddles all around

    And as he watched his friend, oh whee ~
    The toon had an epiphany

    “Methinks we shall have to find
    someone healthy to deliver us a message!
    Eh… in spirits kind.”

    Bonkers wrote:“Orange!”

    ...Orange? He sent the bobcat a bewildered look. There was an orange at the door?

    Bonkers wrote:“Are you glad I didn’t say… BANANA?”

    Oh right! That's how that joke goes! He gave a small chuckle. "Nice one." The bobcat pulled out a banana and began eating it, the both of them warily eyeing the building they could not reach. There was still no response. It was good that they were being proactive like this to keep the patients phazon free but it was a pain in the bruuka at the same time. How were they gonna get out of this one...

    Suddenly, a Bonkers! With a hearty oof, the Krpytonistanian was caught off-guard and slammed into, this one being a lot less graceful than Kev's attempt at catching just a moment ago. The both of them were on the ground and Kev groaned as he picked himself up. "Things just don't want to stop being terrible.."

    Bonkers wrote:“Methinks we shall have to find
    someone healthy to deliver us a message!
    Eh… in spirits kind.”

    "...In spirits...kind?" He blinked. But besides that, he understood what the bobcat said. They needed to find someone with good health, have them be a messenger! and in Kev's case, NOT touch him. Because that would screw everything up. He looked around the streets surrounding them, looking for a healthy candidate to be their messenger.

    "HEY! Anyone wanna get some free money?" Nothing gets people's attention more than the promise of money.

    "...In spirits...kind?"
    “Meh,” Bonkers chuckled and patted Kev’s cheek, “It makes sense in context.”

    That being said the toon crawled off from his friend and got back on his own feet. While the Alien already began to look for some nice NPC candidates, Bonkers quickly checked himself for more ash or any Phazon-blobs that he might have caught during his Peel-Slide when…
    "HEY! Anyone wanna get some free money?"
    Bonkers raised a quizzical eyebrow before he turned to look at Kev and subtly poked him.
    “But, Kev! We don’t have any money!”
    At least none that they could – you know hand over without infecting the recipient!

    Regardless of that fact however, someone had seemed to hear the offer...

    Being holed up in the inn wasn't going to solve anything and even though it was obviously dangerous to venture outside, Link did so anyway. The inn had enough food in storage and freezers to last for a while but who knew how long this would last? Better stock up now before the only way one could walk in the streets is to swim in blue goo. So here the innkeeper was, with what seemed like a crate of shopping held high above his head courtesy of his power bracelets giving him the strength to lift objects hundred times his own weight and hopping from Phazon-free spots to Phazon-free spots like a child playing hopscotch.

    He was just through the hospital barrier and had dropped the crate to the ground for a while to ease swing his arms. Super strength or not, the position of holding the crate was enough to give you cramps sooner or later. The boy took this chance to look up and around. The hospital had a shield too eh? Whoever the pink-haired lady was ('Wha-shoo' Link believed Leo called her) she needs an award for her work.

    Bonkers wrote:“SAAAALLIIII!”

    "Aa?" sounded Link, just as he was thinking of taking off again with his crate of food (and also half wondering if he should donate it to the hospital here - they must need it more than he did, right?). Massaging his shoulder, he looked round the corner of the building and squinted to the very edge of the barrier. Is that...?

    Kev wrote:"HEY! Anyone wanna get some free money?"

    Kev and Bonkers? What are they doing giving out free money in the middle of a Phazon-filled street? On a normal day, Link would have gaped and wondered if those two were begging to be mugged by saying those exact words out loud but it's not like there were anybody in the streets anymore...

    "AAA!" he called for their attention as he ran over to where they were at the barrier but remained inside its safety. "What are you doing out there? Come in. The blue stuff is spreading by the minute," was his hastily scribbled message on his digiglass.

    Makes sense in context huh? If you say so. He eyed the people around them, but no one seemed to be taking the bait. Come on people! You don't want some money?

    Bonkers wrote:“But, Kev! We don’t have any money!”

    "I do! Its right here in my-" In his probably phazon infected pants. Kev paused, and facepalmed loudly. So loud, that Ridley up in space could probably hear it. "ALL HOPE IS LOST!" And to go with that dramatic statement, Kev fell to his knees and made this pose. They had no way to communicate with the Doctors and they were basically locked out. And they were going to die. All hope is lost indeed!

    But suddenly, like a bright light flashing in a tunnel, someone within the barrier noticed them and ran over. And to his surprise, it was Link! "Oh hi Link!" A healthy person! Oh, if they didn't have a barrier between them, he would hug the boy. Oh and also infection.

    He read the written message and shook his head, almost gravely. "We tried, but we can't get in. I got pushed out of the Sanctuary and landed in the blue stuff, and ended up hugging Bonkers accidentally. We have that blue stuff on, or possibly in us. We were hoping to talk to a Doctor, see if she could fix it."

    Bonkers watched Kev’s dramatic breakdown critically, rubbing his chin and shaking his head.
    “No, nooo!” he scolded and walked up to the alien, gripped his arms and started to bend them around a bit, “That’s better. And now you need to look desperate. I want to see more PAIN on that face, Kev!”

    Actors…

    The bobcat’s critism was quickly interrupted when his ear perked at the sudden screaming that came from… hey, was that LINK? Oh, and look, he was INSIDE the blue bubble!
    With a bright smile on his face Bonkers followed Kev back to the shielding and waved at Link as their situation was laid out for him.

    We were hoping to talk to a Doctor, see if she could fix it.
    “Precicely!” Bonkers said and demonstratively pressed a hand against the shield as though it was made of solid glass. He gave the mute boy a sympathetic look and nudged his head into the direction of the hospital.
    “Do you think you could go in there and tell them about us? Or get one of them out?”

    It took Link a full minute to digest what they told him and by then his digiglass was almost slipping out of his fingers. They're WHAT? This is no time to be joking, you know. It's far too serious a thing to joke about - even though he knew that they were indeed being serious about their case. But Bonker's hand on the shield and the barrier's reaction proved it.

    The boy reached a hand out as if to console them but then hesitated and retracted it. Straightening up and biting his lower lip with determination, he nodded then turned and ran into the hospital.

    "AAAAAAAAA! AA! AA!" he shouted once he was through the door, arms waving and trying to catch one of the doctor or nurse's attention. "I have two blue-goo infected friends outside. Can you come see them?" he wrote on his digiglass and held above his head, displaying it to everyone who looked his way.

    It had only been a day since that dragon had decided it'd be a fun idea to cover all of Portal Breach in weird blue sludge. People were dying from contact with it almost instantly, and it had only taken one dead patient's contact with a nurse to figure out that this stuff was toxic. Luckily, not 30 minutes after first exposure, someone had created a shield around the hospital, keeping the blue sludge at bay. The last thing they needed were more patients or employees dying, let alone the entire building getting covered in the stuff. Since it was just the second day though, no one knew that some could get infected and actually live.

    Wind Waker Link wrote:"AAAAAAAAA! AA! AA!"

    Dr. Salli looked up from some charts as she heard the yelling. It sounded like the young mute boy, Link! Was he in trouble? She ran in the direction of the yelling, and once she got close enough, she could read what he had written.

    I have two blue-goo infected friends outside. Can you come see them?

    Oh, they must be dying...and the poor young boy was hoping there was someway she could stop it. As far as she knew there was none, she didn't even know what this stuff was. But when she reached him she put a hand on his shoulder and smiled down at him softly.

    "Take me to them, I'll see what I can do." Imagine her surprise when she finds them goo covered-but ALIVE. And nowhere near dying just yet.

    Aa! Dr. Salli! His favourite doctor! (Well, considering she was the only doctor he ever met here in his hospital trips...) Link waved for her attention even though she was already heading his way. The moment the doctor smiled and said those words, Link nodded then took her hand and pulled her out the door, only to slow down once outside to look down at her hands. Shouldn't they bring those needle things that heals all wounds? Wouldn't that help?

    Link was about to turn them right back around to fetch said medication but thought better. See Kev and Bonkers first. After all, they might need different doses of the stuff. Link could always run back to fetch them later whilst Dr. Salli is working on saving them.

    Bonkers, Acting Coach wrote:“No, nooo! That’s better. And now you need to look desperate. I want to see more PAIN on that face, Kev!”

    Kev gave the bobcat an amused look as he advised him and even adjusted his pose. But this was good, he'd be taking notes on what Bonkers said. "You must be really good at this acting stuff. Those are some good pointers!" Mental notes taken and words exchanged with Link, Bonkers backed up his claims and asked the boy to grab a Doctor.

    Link seemed rather shocked, stunned. Kev wished he could properly console the boy. Its like Mr. Dark all over again. He winced guiltily. Link ran in and he could hear his yelling from there at the edge of the barrier.

    It didn't take too long and Link came back out with the same robotic Doctor from before. He gave her a small wave. "Hello! We're back again. Miss us?" He chuckled nervously before steepling his fingers. "My friend and I need some of your...sciencey assistance." Take it away, Bonko!
