PostSubject: A Day In The Life(s)   Sat Mar 10, 2012 11:15 pm

It was a warm day in the sprawl, full of bustle and raucous arguments... Quite average for the city. The residents, long since hardened against the heat and the noise went about their days as usual. There was a certain peace in the chaos of the sprawl, a knowledge that whoever you were and whatever you did, you were part of a community, built to last, and made to reward those who could find their own way.

It was around ten oclock, and the shops and such were just starting to get their lazy selves open...some things never change.

There were a few fights in the streets (normal) Lots of drunken laughing (Immensly normal) And, without fail, a lot of people enjoying eachotheres company. It was a good day, or at least it had been thuss-far.

----------------------------------------

10:22 Carrlo Mansion

"You fucking idiot!"

Axel looked ashamedly at the ground.

"You stupid moronic piece of stupid brainless refuse!"

Axel grumbled to himself but coninued looking ashamed.

"How the fuck do you misconstrue the order 'offer the ceo a buisness deal' as 'Throw the ceo out the window' How the fuck do you do that?!?" Rhode Carrlo raged.

Axel shrugged. "Sorry boss, i didnt intend to throw him originaly, but he was being irritating, and then he pulled out a flamethrower-"

"I was a lighter..."

"...fine, a lighter, and i figured that..."

"Are you really trying to justify this?" Rhode asked, his eyes narrowing to dissaproving slits.

"uh....not anymore." axel said, breaking into a sweat.

"Good....good." Rhode said. "Because if you were axel, i would have to take you on a trip to the spire....and throw YOU out of a window..." he said, letting a puff of smoke out of his mouth. It wasnt that he was smoking, indeed he found the practice repulsive, rather, he was a walking dynamo. As such all of his threats were rather more than empty words. He was possibly the only person in the world that truly made axel nervous.

"So, to be clear-" He continued, snapping axel back to reality. "As it is, i have thought up a less....permanent solution to your idiocy. You are going to go out into the wastes. There is a town destryed in the first war. Its name was Kenton. We are looking for a stockpile of old weapons that were supposedly there when it was destroyed. They were shit then, and they will be now, but collectors will be collecters. Best of all, there isnt anyone for you to piss off." He said. "You'll be provided with transport, and you can take lucas along if you want, but from there it's your problem. Now get the fuck out before you explode." He said.

Most would think that he had mispoke and had meant to say "Before I explode." suffice it to say, he didnt.

Axel ducked out of the room with a polite "Yess boss" and then, once out of earshot of the room. "Son of a-" *insert string of incredibly awful profanity*

Five minutes later, axel walked into lucas's room. He looked pissed...this was not unusual for lucas to see after axel had been talking with his uncle.

"Chewed you out?" lucas asked meakly.

"Shut it." axel responded. "Turns out, were going on a little trip."

Lucas raised an eyebrow.

Antonio was pleased. In fact, he was over-pleased. He wasn't externally giddy, no...He just had a stupid grin plastered on his face and his sunglasses were pushed up to rest atop his hat (which was a black leather trucker hat that read "Budweiser" in red and white stitching). His hands were jammed into his hoodie pocket (again, a Budweiser hoodie) and his hand was wrapped firmly around the piece of paper which had been given to him earlier. A friend of his had approached him this morning and presented him with a piece of paper on which he had messily scrawled information about the destroyed town of Kenton.

Weapons. Everywhere.

Unusable, mind you...But collectors will be collectors, and Antonio was a collector. He was willing to make the trek, as long as he could come home with cool weapons. Even if they were a little melty, he was cool with that. He chuckled quietly to himself. 'Melted weaponry, post-modern artwork...Same thing basically.'

He had almost reached the edge of the city when he noticed a couple of men on their way out. He recognized one of them, one of the Carrlo. He'd seen him around. Then again, you couldn't go anywhere without seeing one of their bunch. Antonio had always admired their power and was always surprised at the influence they had over the city. He didn't really get involved any more than he had to, but you didn't live in the Sprawl and NOT know about the Carrlo family. He nodded at the men and sped up his pace, hoping to avoid confrontation.

Lucas was seriously considering rupturing his eardrums.

"I mean, really dude, what does he expect me to do? I mean, what look for a bunch of random crppy weapons that wont work, that are what, like fifty years old by now?" Axel grumbled, following lucas without really looking at where he was going.

Lucas sighed. "Twenty years or less man, and anyway, it's not like were going and doing this for fun, this is him trying to get you out of the way while he smothes things over with a guy you punched out a window." Lucas answered patiantly, for what had to be the eighth time.

"Yeah but...but....fuck...stop being right you little einstein." Axel said poking Lucas in the back of the head.

Lucas sighed. Though axel was the one who had taken him in, a lot of the time, he felt like he was a full-time babysitter, albiet to a baby who's temper tantrums could lead to wide-scale destruction. Still, it wasnt all bad. When he wasnt being a pain, axel was (not that he would admit it even under pain of death) A nice guy. He took lucas on most of his lesser assighnments, and taught him what he needed to know to survive and thrive in the sprawl.

He smiled, remembering all the times that axel had saved his ass. It was a long list, but, with a note of pride, lucas felt, he had saved axel quite a few times too. They were a good team....that being said, niether of them had a damn clue how to safely navigate the wastes.

"Hey...uh axel, how are we going to...uh, you know, actually get where we need to go, i mean we dont know how to....well, do much in the wastes."

Axel seemed to think about it for a sec, then, without even a moments extra hesitation, he shouted out to a person he had seen occationaly around the edge of the sprawl, he figured that probably meant that he had gone out at some point. "Hey, beer-hat and shirt dude!" He called. "You got a minute?"

Antonio froze. 'A minute.' He tried to remember if he had done anything really stupid lately...He DID get really drunk that night, but he didn't think he punched out a Carrlo. No, he'd have been dead already if he had.

"Yeah?" He nodded his head so that his sunglasses covered his eyes again as he half-turned to face the men. As soon as he got a good look at the two, Antonio began to wonder if they were intending on going outside the Sprawl. The Carrlos seemed like they could handle themselves just fine, but they wouldn't know their way around the Wastes, would they? They were crime lords not survival experts... "Are you guys heading for Kenton, too?"

Axel blinked "Cool your psychic and stuff, so can you read min-"

Lucas interupted him. "Yes. I take it you are heading that direction. We would really appreciate it if you would be willing to escort us." Lucas said hopefully. "We would pay you and things obviously." he said hastily, pulling out a roll of what looked like a rather insane amount of money. "We just dont want to get lost and get discovered later as skeletons." He said, laughing nervously... He obviously didnt quite get the pulling power of the organisation he belonged to. In fact, he seemed to think that antonio was going to laugh at him or something. It was actually kind of hillarious....or it would have been if axel wasnt smiling at antonio in a manner that suggested that "no" was not a viable answer.

Lucas shrugged. "But yeah, we only need to get up to the town, so if its not too much trouble..." Axel silently facepalmed and pulled lucas to the side. "Exuse us for a sec dude." He said, and proceeded to have a whispered conversation with lucas using phrases like "Demanding, not fucking cringing." And "That is several million dollars you idiot.", Beofre striding over to antonio again.

"So, axel said with his terrifying grin, "Whadayasay?"

'I pictured them as much more...demanding.'

Antonio was surprised by how polite these guys were. He thought about it for a moment...On the plus side, they needed his assistance and probably didn't want to kill him. On the not-so-plus side, if he made any sort of mistake they would probably *ahem* dispose of him once they stopped needing his help. Worst case scenario, no one would be able to recognize his corpse when they were through with him. Best case scenario, they would find him useful and he would have the Carrlo family at his back, even if just for a few days.

The one doing all the talking was actually pretty normal...The other one was just creepy. He was about to respond as the creepy one pulled the nice one to the side. He whispered something in a frustrated tone and turned back to Antonio, looking even creepier than before.

"Uh...I don't need the money guys, I've got my beer and basic entertainment, I'm pretty much set." He laughed quietly. "But yeah, I'm off to Kenton myself. I collect guns and such and supposedly there's an excellent stash. I'll escort you, no problem." It occurred to him that he only had enough guns and ammo for one person. "You guys have an sort of weaponry or anything...?" They certainly had enough money to purchase a whole shop's worth of weapons if they didn't already have some...

Lucas nodded with a shy smile, and unsheathed a katana from within his coat. Seeming to feel that this spoke for itself, he gently slid it back into its sheath.

Meanwhile axel just grinned. "Ill be fine." he said casually. "Worst case scenario, i punch whatevers bothering me to dust."

Lucas nodded, seemingly coraborating this. "Yeah, anyway, if you say so. Were actually looking for the same thing, but im sure we can figure something out." lucas said. Axel seemed to be having another facepalm moment, but seemed to shake it off.

"Allright." he said. "Lets just get going i guess."

(tiny post is tiny Q.Q)

Although Antonio preferred guns over pointy things, the katana that the man showed him was good enough for him. As for the creepy one, Antonio hoped his cockiness was enough to carry him through a fight. He nodded in approval of their weaponry (and the creepy one's lack thereof) and turned, leading the way out of the city and into the Wastes. "You guys take all the guns you need, just give me a couple and call it payment." he laughed quietly, grinning in a friendly fashion. They were so...not evil. He felt oddly comfortable around them. As they had been talking he had been sizing them up, trying to determine what kind of people they were. It was generally an easy task for Antonio, as was detecting lies, and after a few minutes he had them pretty well summed up.

The creepy one was short-tempered and experienced in his line of work. He was probably the other one's mentor, but they didn't seem related. The other was new to this, but he could handle himself well enough. By the looks of it, one was the brute and the other was the diplomat. Antonio had the feeling that he would have to be in charge of putting a cap on the creepy one's temper. After all, he was relatively sure it would save his own ass as well.

They walked for a couple of minutes, silent save for the sound of Antonio's guns clanking together on his back. He cleared his throat. "By the way, my name is Antonio." He said casually, hoping that this would open up some sort of conversation. He didn't particularly want to walk in utter silence the whole way. They had a decent trip ahead of them as far as he was aware...His friend had told him where to go, given him landmarks to go off of and such, but he hadn't said much about distance.

Lucas smiled. "Right, sorry, i forgot to ask. My names Lucas, nice to meet you." He said, inclining his head to Antonio.

Axel let out a chuckle. "Aw'right, im Axel Carrlo Future cappo of the Carrlo family, and Resident bad ass." he said, his simeltaniously true, and laughable statement hanging in the air for a while before Lucas broke the aquard silence.

"right. Anyway, i guess you like weapons like the ones were going to find?" he asked " I guess that means you're our customer base" he said with a grin. "I dont know much about guns, but were always buying and selling stuff like this." He said, making smalltalk.

Meanwhile axel seemed to have become a bit quieter than usual. He seemed to be subtly smelling the air, not making it to obvious, but seeming somewhat concerned. He shook his head and then joined in the converstion. "Yeah" he said, seeming to get away from whatever was worrying him. "This guy is clueless when it comes to antique values..." he said prodding lucas with his elbow.

Lucas grinned back at him. "Yes, but lets not forget who got sold an entire truckload of forgeries a week ago." he said pleasantly.

"Gack...." Axel seemed not to have a response to that, and he lapsed into grumbling. Meanwhile, lucas continued talking to antonio as though nothing had happened. "But yeah, we get a lot of odd stuff. Guns with like twenty barrels and such, wierd stuff really." he said with a shrug.

Lucas and Axel. Now he had something to call them other than 'normal guy' and 'creepy guy'. Antonio shivered as he realized he was walking with the heir to the Carrlo throne. He made a mental note to impress Axel, lest he decided that Antonio wasn't useful to him or the city.

"I like damn near anything that goes 'BANG'." Antonio laughed. Small talk achieved. "I can't tell you all the specifics of guns, but I've been firing since I was 6, so I can say I've got experience. I know what caliber leaves what sized hole and that's enough info for me. I actually do most of my gun customization myself...I never know what to tell the guy at the counter. 'I want it to kill people better.' You don't say?" He noticed how distracted Axel was. Rather, he didn't notice it so much as he instinctively knew that someone was uncomfortable and he assumed it wasn't Lucas. "As for antique value, I can teach you a few things while we're gathering them up, if you want." Antonio became very aware that something was off all of the sudden, and he did his best not to show it. The one thing he disliked about being a psychoactive maestro was the fact that his gut feeling was always right. Always. He could never just say "Must've eaten something bad" or "I'm just worrying myself." No, something was wrong and it was very wrong.

"Do you...I dunno, is something weird or am I just a wimp?" He glanced back at Lucas and Axel, knowing fully well that it was less of a question and more of a warning.

Lucas tilted his head. "Wait what?" he asked, genuinely confused.

Axel gritted his teeth. "Yeah....i guess you could say that...." He said, seeming to genuinely shiver. "Im not sure what....but..." he shook his head. "Its...it's just something in the air... Anyway. Lets just get where were going before something wierd happens and ruins my mood." he said, trying to cover up his uneasyness with bravado.

Lucas Looked a bit troubled now, but seemed to be more worried about axel himself than whatever he was talking about. Nonetheless, he continued on without saying anything, seemingly content to let axel do as he wished.

(and onto the wastes which i will make a thread for.)

-------------------------------

Further into the sprawl, two other people began to feel the worlds scream...

Rhode carrlo Was sitting at his desk. He raked a hand through his grey hair and 'tch'ed in annoyance. He stood up, placing his hands on his desk, and breathing deeply. "Boss?" the man across from him said quietly. "Law." Rhode answered back. "Go after axel. Get him back here, now." He said.

Law nodded. "As you say boss, but they'll reach the town before i can get to them." he said flatly. Rhode nodded. "Fine, just catch up to them...and law...make sure you're ready for a hell of a fight." he said. The man in the half mask nodded curtly. "Yes boss. Ill have your nephew back before dinner." He said. And he began to walk out.

"Oh, and Law." Rhode cut in, causing the man to pause. "You had better get back here alive." He said. Law let a small smile pass across his face. "Yess boss, ill make a point of it."

-------------------------------

In the middle of the city, a certain person was making a large ruckus.

"Vivian Please! For the love of god stop! your going to destroy the whole building!" A woman in grey yelled into the whirlwind of knashing metal before her.

"Who Fucking cares!" a furious voice yelled back. "After all of it! After everything, i can feel them again! They're back! Whats one building? Whats one freaking city compared to what they'll do?" the voice raged.

The woman in grey put her head in her hands for a moment. "I know, allright?" she yelled...

The metal slowly retracted, to reveal a woman sitting in the midst of an utterly destroyed room, holding her knees against her chest, tears flowing down her face.

"Whats the godamn point....what did our friends work for then...." She murmered.

The woman in grey cautiosly aproached, and put an arm around her. "I know...but viv....we have to keep trying....we have to at least protect the city..." she said. "Come on, if your going to put that power to use, you dont need to do it on drywall." she said.

Vivian chuckled despite herself.... "Yeah Mel....i guess not... but..." she lapsed into silence.

The woman in grey sat beside her. "As much as we both hate it, we can only prepare now." she said.

"Prepare for what? vivian asked glumly.

"For war..."

(MUCH LATER) |
--------------------

Antonio pretended not to notice Axel's lie. Picking Volker up bridal style, he shoved the cloth up Volker's nose to keep the bleeding under control. He turned his attention to Lucas and focused on centering himself so that he could form a stronger connection with Lucas's energy. He sifted through his memory for a song to drain some of the energy, settling on a song that tended to produce a heady sort of high feeling in those he pressed it upon. It served to calm his own frayed nerves a little as well, which in turn eased the pain in his body a bit. He kept close to Lucas as they walked into the Sprawl, trying to keep his focus.

He kept it up until he began to feel sore and tired again, breaking his focus. Antonio was suddenly very aware of the fact that he was standing in front of the Carrlo estate. He swallowed hard. Although he considered himself to be generally well-prepared, confronting the Carrlo family on their own turf was a daunting task that nobody could truly prepare for. No amount of weaponry or power could cause a non-Carrlo to feel comfortable there.

"Is your boss going to uh, take kindly to our presence? I mean, you're dragging a redneck and an unconscious guy who looks about 18 into his office. I'd be pissed. And if he's pissed...I don't suppose you'd protect us." He said, casting a nervous glance at Axel. Pulling the cloth free from Volker's nose and throwing it aside after making sure the bleeding had stopped, he tossed his human luggage over his shoulder, grunting under his weight.

-------------------

Volker's nose had finally stopped bleeding by the time they reached the Carrlo estate. His nose remained broken, but the blood had stopped.

"Im his nephew" Axel said. "And if he was worried enough to send law after us, i dont think hes gonna give a shit if i bring in some other people that got injured along with me....i mean, he'll shout about it a lot, but he wont actually hurt you. He might throw something at me, but probably not till he's had my injuries patched up." Axel said, dragging himself forewards. "Also, I'm gonna go ahead and consider you an ally to the carrlo's if you are cool with it. You helped out lucas when shit was getting bad...dont think i dont appreciate the hell out of that." he said, giving Antonio a smile that, for once didnt seem to be tainted with anger or sarcasm.

With this, he motioned for antonio and lucas to follow him, and walked forewards. Axel snapped his fingers and the gates opened with a thump. Suddenly two men with assult rifles were in front of him. They were about to say something when they seemed to realise who it was. "Holy... Mr. Carrlo You allright?" The one on the left asked The other one glared at him. "Hes bleeding Sam, you think he's freaking allright?" the man asked sarcasticaly. "Shut up guys." axel said weakly. "Yes sir" the two responded. "Get them into the medical wing, have niisa fix them up. Have her bring some tea or something for Lucas too." he said. "I've got to report."

The two guards looked at eachother. "Mr Carrlo...you're pretty bashed up, you might wanna go with em to the medica-"

"Did that sound like a fucking question?" Axel asked, sounding extremely annoyed.

"Yessir." The one named sam said.

"Well get them there on the double."

"Good." axel said.

"All right." Sam said, "Lets go guys."

----------------------------

As axel trudged down the hallway leading to his uncle's office, his bravado that he had been keeping up for lucas faded somewhat. He winced with each step. "Holy shit." he kept muttering under his breath... The image of the centurian was burned into his mind. When he finally reached the door of his uncle's office, he leaned against it for support for a moment before pushing it open. "Boss." he said "Im sorry to barge in...but i have to tell you..."

Rhode carlo had been sitting at his desk, but in an instant he was up, eyes a little wider than usual. "Godamnit axel..." He hissed. "Did you try to fucking fight it? Why in the name of fuck do you have a hole in your godamn shoulder?" He asked, sounding almost a little...panicked.

"There were a lot of them...it was the Godamn angels...I...Couldnt get the guns, im sorr-"

Rhode cut him off. "Axel, you come in here having fought some godamn angels, and what you think im worried about are the guns? Get the hell to the medical wing, and if you so much as freaking think about bleeding out on me, im gonna stuff you so full of restoratives that youll be lucky if you dont get whiplash from how fast you recover. Now get out of my office untill you dont look like swiss cheese." The mafioso yelled.

"Heheh....Thanks Boss" Axel said.

"Get out."

--------------------------

Sam led the remaining people down a long hallway, richly decorated with art and a bold red colorscheme with black and white checkered carpets. At the end was a door with a medical cross on it, and it was through here that sam led them. Inside it was rather white and sterile looking with rows of beds lining the walls. It was like the carrlos had their own little hospital.

Although Antonio was not entirely convinced that he wouldn't be shot at some point, he wasn't about to turn down medical attention. He had drained what little energy he had regained in calming down Lucas. Soreness crept back into his muscles and his head began to throb faintly with the threat of a headache. "Well, I won't complain. Having the Carrlos at my back sounds like a pretty sweet deal. And on the subject of helping Lucas...what sick fuck wouldn't?" Antonio offered a weary but genuine smile.

As Antonio followed the man to the medical wing he began to reflect on what had just happened. He had just met and assisted a couple of Carrlos, run from a a Centurion, and acquired a boy who's name he still didn't know. It had been a while since he'd felt so alive, and yet he felt so dead.

Well, I complained about being bored. I should not have complained. Just gotta pace myself a little, I guess.

-----

Volker groaned as he started to come to. The first thing he noticed was a stabbing pain in his nose. The smell of blood was overwhelming. The second thing he noticed was that he was draped over someone's shoulder. In a moment of instinctual panic he swung his fist back, striking the man's head and causing him to drop Volker. As he scrambled to his feet, he felt several emotions at once. First he felt anger, then he felt embarrassment as he realized he'd just punched Antonio, slight regret for having used his Blaast, and finally a mix of gratitude and renewed anger.

"What the hell? Where are we? What happened?" He demanded.

Antonio turned to face him, holding the side of his head with a look of sheer annoyance plastered on his face. "Ow and fuck you." He hissed. "You passed out back there and Axel carried you back. We're in the medical wing of the Carrlo estate." Antonio ignored Volker's shocked exclamation of 'Oh shit' and continued talking. "Then I carried you here. Also we broke your nose. I would have been sorry about that but now that you've given me a fucking concussion you can call us even."

Volker looked slightly distressed. He sighed and brought his hand to his face, brushing his fingers lightly over the bridge of his nose. He winced. It was still pretty tender. It was in that moment of weary wincing and feelings of embarrassment and distress that Volker felt so pitifully weak. He hated it. His face turned to a hardset angry expression and he snapped his nose back into place with a sickening popping noise, gritting his teeth and stifling a yell. As far as Volker was concerned, weakness was forbidden. And furthermore, weakness meant you should experience pain to tough yourself up.

Antonio stared at him in confusion and disgust. "That...You could have waited until we were actually receiving medical care. I'm sure there was a much less painful way to go about that."
"Yeah well fuck you."
"I didn't even-" Volker cut off Antonio's offended protest with a glare. They remained silent while they waited.

Within less than a minute the door slammed open, and a tall woman with a heart shaped face, red hair and shockingly blue eyes stepped in. She was dressed in what seemed to be a black jumpsuit with a lab coat over it. There was a moment of silence then. "You broken nose, lie down before i lay you out, you're bleeding on my floor. As for you, you have fatigue, so go and lie down till im ready for you, and hello lucas dear, how are you today." During this, her Voice changed inflections at least three times, sounding venemous with volker, exasperated with antonio, and motherly with lucas. Her voice had a slight german tint to it making her "W"s sound a it like "V"s.

Having said her piece the woman fell silent. Lucas blinked. "Uh...im fine Miss Niisa." Lucas said, seeming somewhat intimidated by the woman. "These are-" Niisa interupted "Patiants, yes." She finished, obviously rather uninterested in their names.

"In any case I-" She started. Then, axel tapped her on the shoulder. She turned around. "Oh, hello Axe...VHAT THE HELL DID YOU TO TO YOURSELF?" She yelled, her concern causing her accent to become more pronounced.

"Well I..." Axel began. "Shut up and put pressure on your shoulder While i decide how bad im going to hurt you once i've healed you." The woman raged.

"All right alright you dont have to yell Aunt Niisa." Axel said fraily.

"I will yell as much as i damn vell please!"

Axel sighed...he was getting yelled at a lot today.

"Well screw you too." Volker mumbled, laying himself down in one of the beds. He wasn't in the mood to argue for once.

It was odd, being in the Carrlo estate. He had never pictured himself getting along with their crowd. Yet here he was, laying back in a medical wing with a broken nose and a sore everything else. His knuckles were scorched from where he'd punched the ground, and he flexed them now to make sure they weren't broken.

"Shit!" Not broken, but extremely tender and raw. The movement had torn some of the skin and they were bleeding now. Great, now he was bleeding on her bed. Volker had the distinct feeling he was about to be chewed out.

----------

"Yes m'am. Thank you." Antonio didn't need to be told twice.

He threw himself down on a bed, groaning as his sore muscles settled. Antonio stole a quick glance at the woman. She was...nerve-wracking. She seemed to be extremely bipolar and didn't seem very fond of him or the other boy at all. This did not ease his worries about whether or not he was going to be shot.

Less than a minute later, axel was sitting on a bed with one of his arms up to the shoulder immobilised with a splint, and with bandages covering most of his remaining body. The effect lent him the overall appearence of a very unhappy mummy.

"Seriously, i dont need all this, i can heal from regular cuts on my-" A reflex testing mallet hit axel square in the middle of the forehead. "Shut up and lie down!" Niisa growled angrily. Axel, looking extremely put out swung his legs into the bed, glaring around at the others as though to say 'one word, and i will take you all down, mummy or no mummy.'

Having shut axel up, Niisa looked around the room, and came next to Volker. She glanced at the blood all over the bed and looked momentarily like she was going to punch volker right in his already broken nose. After a moment though her expression changed and she sighed. "Oh vell, i guess it can't be helped." She said with a shrug. She bent down, looking closely at volker's injuries. After a few moments, she pulled a few things from her lab coat pockets.

The first thing she took out, what appeared to be some sort of cream or salve, she took a blob of and spread over volker's knuckles. For a moment they would sting like hell, but then, they would just feel warm and comfortable. It seemed that the bloodflow had stopped, and amasingly, the skin even seemed to be knitting a bit. Having finished that, niisa began wrapping the hand in bandages, utterly ignoring volker himself, instead focusing completely on her task.

When his hand was done she looked him over again. "Alright, dont screw vith the bandages for at least a couple hours...now as for the nose...it isn't busted, just offset a bit....soo...." Suddenly niisa had her hand over volker's nose. She made a sharp movement, and there was an odd whoosh noise. Volker would feel like his face was on fire, but the bleeding from his nose would stop, and it would feel far less tender.

"Now obviously dont hit that on anything." niisa said frankly, and walked directly away from volker.

Next she sidled up to Antonio. She looked him over and smiled. "Good, you arent bleeding on my things." She said. "Gold star for you." She glared momentarily at axel, who seemed to wither a little bit under her glare.

"Take this." She handed Antonio a tablet pill, and she filled a small plastic cup with water and handed that over as well. "It will restore some of the energy that you lost doing vhatever the hell you did. You'll still be achy in the morning, but you vont feel like you are dying."

Giving a parting nod Niisa swept over to lucas, who was still jittering. There were a couple moments of silence. "Did you try to drink mister carrlo's cofee again?" Niisa asked confusedly.

Lucas shook his head.

"No, i just ran like a hundred times faster than normal though." he said, with a shaky little grin.

Niisa blinked. "Huh....vell...ill go mkake some chamomile tea." She said with a shrug. "In the meantime. Axel?"

Axel looked up. "yeah?" he asked.

"If you get out of that bed i vill litteraly chain you to it and shoot you vith a tranque dart, okay?"

Axel paled slightly. "Okay." he said.

Obviously axel had a history of not letting his injuries heal properly.

Volker hissed words of profanity until the stinging subsided. Profanity turned to silence and a paling face as he watched the skin over his knuckles begin to knit itself back together.

"Oh Christ." Volker looked away before he could get sick. He had this overwhelming feeling that the doctor lady would snap his neck if he vomited on her floor.

-----------------

Antonio wrinkled his nose, clearing his throat to force the pill along its way. He was just grateful to have some help.

"Thank you, ma'am." He muttered. To be honest, he was a bit afraid to say anything other than "thank you", "yes", or "no".

Niisa nodded crisply. "well at least your friends are polite." She said, looking pointedly at Axel, who, in a move quite beneficial to his well-being, said nothing.

As she walked out of the room, presumably to get the aforementioned tea, Axel and Lucas both let out a sigh of relief. "Well that could have been worse." Axel said with a halfhearted grin.

"Yeah, she could have put you in a full body cast again." Lucas said, stifling a laugh. Axel gave Lucas a disparaging look. "We don't talk about the body cast incident." He grumbled.

"Anyway" He continued. "Thanks for your help out there guys." He suddenly seemed to get serious. "I can't believe they're back." He said.

"You're welcome." Antonio shrugged. "I mean, I ran away like a bitch but you're still welcome."

His head still hurt. He didn't really want to talk too much.

--------------

"Yeah, no, aren't they supposed to all be dead or something?" Volker said, sitting up cross-legged in the bed. He had vague memories of just how shitty life used to be, and much more recent memories of how shitty those things were/are. "They got back on their feet pretty damn fast."

"Thanks for getting Lucas out." Axel clarified with a shrug. "Anyway... yeah, I thought they were gone for good, i mean, they pretty much got wiped out as far as I was aware." He said, not quite managing to hide the worry in his voice. "More to the point though, what does that mean for us at this point? Them being back I mean?" He seemed to dwell on it until Niisa bustled back into the infirmary, a platter of tea, and what looked like little biscuits of some sort balanced on one of her hands.

Axel lapsed into resentful silence as Niisa surveyed him, perhaps trying to figure out if he had been out of bed in her absence.

She placed a cup of tea on each bedside table, following them with a couple of the little biscuit things. Lucas couldn't seem to stifle a grin. He picked up his tea, sighing happily at the taste.

Axel looked down at the tea and biscuits combo warily.

Niisa rolled her eyes. "I did not put sedatives in your tea." she said, though her tone suggested she had considered it.

"In any case, you two..." She gestured to Volker and Antonio. "Mister Carrlo would like to see you when you are feeling up to it. Your injuries aren't life-threatening..." She aimed another look at Axel. "So I am villing to let you go on the condition that you do not do anything monumentally stupid to hurt yourselves between now and the time you return."
