She was here, why not? She shifted slightly to her side lifting the hem of her shirt about 2 inches. A nasty bruise, mostly due to size, it was deep and barely showing discoloration, from a misplaced Kidney shot. Compliments of Uhjaw. “Might as well check this one. Felt like a pulled muscle but it’s probably bruised.” The myriad scars easily showing to the doctor’s pursual. “Recognize your work?” she asked, it was him, she had no doubt. He may have a different name now, but this was Dr. Thomas Kidd. His vocal mannerisms gave him away. But she remembered him, egging her to breathe, to remember how to do so without pain. “You were on Centurion with me.”

Without reaction Theo began to probe the area of the new bruise. “Hmmm.” was his only response for a moment. He looked up at her and for once the charm and gentle nature was gone, replaced with a very guarded, calculating expression. He turned his attention to the bruising and reactivated his device. “I always have disliked playing patch work on a patients injuries. It often leads to shoddy or rushed work which as you are aware, leads to scaring. ” Internally Theodore considered the situation and the woman. Well there goes an alias we can use… he mused. A trivial matter really, Theo soothed, he had not gone under the guise of Doctor Thomas Kidd for years. Theodore Knox was who he was at birth and now, even if he hadn’t been for some time in between those two fixed points of reality. He made a metal stock take of sickbay. Busy people, enough distance and cover noise and a perfectly plausible reason to be conversing. He looked at her again.

Casela watched him look around. Carefully, so he was aware of what she was doing, she reached for an object clipped to her pocket and showed him. A small signal jammer. And their voices were low enough no one would over hear. She clipped the device back in her pocket.

“A wise precaution,” he murmured.

“I assure you I am here under my own volition, now if you would be so kind to show me anywhere else you are injured?” He asked

Dr Knox
She nodded accepting his assertion for the moment. “If you should see your colleague again, tell him thank you from me. As far other bruises, I have no idea for sure.” She flexed each muscle experimentally testing for stiffness, for a few moments. Then pointed over her left shoulder along the trap. “Maybe there.” While the Dr checked, “Will I need to come in between now and my surgery for the anemia?”

“If you could sit up for me please.” he said again, mask back in place. Turning his attention to the injury he shook his head. “Not if you would rather not, I can provide you a hypo with a set dosage to take each day in the interim.“ he stood behind her to access the shoulder better.

Casela sat up and the paused before undoing the clasp to give him access to the bruised shoulder. “A screen if you don’t mind, Dr. With scaring like mine it is easily remembered. Something in our work I can not afford. And a hypo will be fine. I know Sickbay can get very busy as can containment. I will take it first thing in the morning.”

He complied with her request without comment.

“You are talented at controlling your reactions counsellor. I commend you on that. I assume you reacted without detection when the penny dropped for you as it were? That is an interesting skill.”

Dr Knox

“Thank you doctor. And a very shinny penny it was. I will admit to not being quite sure at first, you are unflappable yourself. An interesting but necessary skill. It’s saved me more times than I can count.”
Lt Synthi-er CNS

“Thank you.” he said sounding genuinely pleased with the compliment. “It does present me with a rather precarious situation and a potential opportunity. I trust that you are capable of being discreet? It took me a long while to amas the right amount of strings to pull and leverage to allow me to be released as it were. Though you and I both know that is not entirely the case but if you will indulge my use of the term. I would hate to think it could be snatched from my very grasp now.”

“I have reason to be anything other than deiscreet. I only ask the same in return. I too have worked hard to get released as it were. I have no desire to jeopardize that for myself or anyone else.” The man saved her life, she owed him that much.

He experimentally prodded at the shoulder. “The potential opportunity is difficult to pass up. If I may be so bold as to ask, how much exactly do you remember? And will you allow me a closer examination of your scars?”

Dr Knox

Her eye twitched, barely as he prodded at it. “For a scientist, doctor or not I can see the lure of the ARU.” She thought a moment. “After I escaped…mostly the pain, freezing and noises of the ships. I was mostly on automatic. I remember overriding the controls on the freighter when I realized we were near Centurion. Using my access codes for the transporter…” She was quiet for a moment. “After that, lights, voices, pain coming and going, hands…I remember a Vulcan trying to mind meld with me. I think I hurt him,and then another Betazoid. I do clearly remember one of my doctors telling me to breathe deeply over and over and berating me for thinking it was going to hurt.” She grinned slightly. “I don’t remember much really.” At his final question she nodded. If she was in his position she would want to know. She wouldn’t ask him why though. “Of course doctor.”
