It was late, as it was whenever Octavia was working her shift in sickbay. Her lessons had been going well and she was learning a lot from all the tutors even those not from a science background but other crew members too. Word had apparently gotten out what had happened both on the ship and back on Trill, she’d had visits from dignitaries and physiotherapists even a Trill ambassador but none convinced her to return to Trill she was happy here studying to become a Starfleet Officer and doing the odd night shift, and she was building friendships if only a few.

She was mostly alone, there was a night nurse who had popped out to attend to a medical issue in the holodeck and a tellurite engineer who had the bad case of the flu or at least some variant of the flu nothing they did seemed to work, she had over heard the nurses speaking and they deemed it a case of ‘the lazy bones’. Humming to herself she restocked and restacked the main supply cabinets the lights dimmer than usual as to simulate night time which she didn’t mind.

Bump

From the door way the heavy sound that could only be described as two tomb stones being rubbed together or as the voice of the Ogawa dentist said FORGIVE THE INTERRUPTION, WHY ARE YOU MAKING THAT MUSICAL SOUND?

For once Octavia didnt jump, she’d gotten used to the odd dentist that was Dr Black though she did blush, he still made her skin itch and alone she couldn’t help but feel an overshadowing cloud of fear. She turned around to reassure herself that he was after all just a person, if an odd one and not entirely normal.

Sure enough the black cowled figure stood, its skull grinning (being a skull and unable to do anything else) at Octavia. It held one of the billowing robe arms against its chest.

“I. Ur. I was Humming” She said thinking back to his question and trying not to be overcome with dread. “It’s a song called ‘The Hanging Tree’” She added thinking that he would actually appreciate the lyrics behind the sound. “I wasn’t disturbing you was I, I can stop if you’d like.” Octavia offered attempting a smile, in the end she imagined it looked like half a grimace.

For his part Dr Black seemed to consider this news. Tilting his skull. AHH YES, I UNDERSTAND. I RATHER LIKE MUSIC. IT IS SOOTHING.

He looked around. HOWEVER, I APPEAR TO BE IN NEED OF SOME MEDICAL ASSISTANCE. I HAVE HAD A....WHAT IS THE HUMAN WORD FOR IT…AN…ACCIDENT. YES. I HAVE HAD AN ACCIDENT. he gently indicated the arm he held by moving it ever so slightly.

“Oh well” Octavia looked around and saw there were no nurses, “If you don’t mind a somewhat under qualified but super keen doctor to be to take a look I can maybe help” She turned and closed the cupboard door before picking up a tri-corder, “Take a seat” She smiled putting to work her best bedside manners approach. He maybe unnerving there was no need for her to be either.
