I'm sorry for the delay, 6 assignments to do and I have to tutor every Monday and Wednesday, so sorry for the delay.
Nada swirled the wine around in her glass, the air was uncertain. Her blue eyes shot up as the door opened, Zimmerman entered.
"Sorry to intrude" He said.
"Not at all" Nada replied, "Helen just left, if you were looking for her"
"No, actually I wanted to speak to you" He said, leaning against the wall next in front of her, she was perched expertly on the thin ledge of the window sill, the wind billowing around her as she looked over the River.
"About what?" She asked cautiously.
"Well, I'm the resident Physiatrist and if you wanted to talk about anything, that's what I'm here for" He crossed his arm.
"I may look like a child" Nada replied, dryly, "But I definitely am not and I do not need you as a shoulder to cry on"
"I'm not saying that, I just want to know more about you"
"Well, I spent the first 30 years of my life stuck underground believing that the surface was a chemical inferno" Nada said, "And that my mother was dead, I only found out a week ago that she was alive because of my keen observation of words, Nikola kept me locked up like a common criminal, never let me out of his sight. He only let me go to fetch him ingredients in his experiments"
"The Nuclear Power plant in Ukraine" Will murmured.
"When I was 32 I got sick of being in a trapped box and went on a suicide mission, I'm stronger than my father, you know, knocked him out and followed the route to the surface, only to find out it was a beautiful blooming place. You see, Dr Zimmerman, you've probably lived more than I have, even though I'm older"
He was nothing but shocked by her words.
"You can see yourself out" She murmured.
He nodded and left, he glanced back as he closed the door, he normally read people like a book. This girl, or woman, was impossible; her thought process was so different to others, her ability to see the world was so different to the way everyone else did. She was like a Hollow Earth Abnormal only she had no reason to believe that the surface was real.
"Hayy, Will, where ya going?" Henry came around the corner.
"Magnus' office" He replied, absently, "You?"
"Nada's room" Henry smiled.
"Why?" Henry said, alarmed.
"I just spoke to her, she seemed pretty fired up" Will glanced at him.
"What'd you do?" Henry asked, "You did the whole get into your head thing, didn't you?"
"It's my job, Henry"
Henry stared at him; "I'm going to my Lab" He turned around and went back the opposite way.
"Don't blame me!" Will called back.
Magnus put Nada through a Fitness Test, starting with monitoring heart rate and blood pressure as she worked out and Blood tests.
"Well, Nada, you seem to be more than in shape" Helen smiled, "If I may take a sample of your blood?"
Nada nodded and held out her elbow, "So why do you want to know all this stuff?"
"Future practice" Helen smiled, "The information on our staff may help the Sanctuary teams in the future, that is why we keep our records up to date, even now Henry is working some of my earlier logs into the computer system, even though most of what I had in there was incorrect, it is still useful"
"Takes a big person to admit their faults" Nada glanced at her elbow as the Doc pulled the needle out, the small blot of blood disappeared as the skin healed over.
"Yes" Helen said, absentmindedly, "How did you do that so quickly?"
"What?" Nada asked, "Heal?"
Helen nodded, "I've only ever seen a full blood Vampire heal that quickly, even on such a small wound"
"Oh, it's simple" Nada picked up a knife from the table beside them.
"No, Nada, wait-"
Nada sliced the knife through her arm, leaving a long bloody gash which healed over almost immediately, "Cool isn't it?"
"Stay here" Helen held out a hand for a second and walked quickly out the door.
"What happening?" Nada called after her.
Sorry for the long wait, I didn't mean for school to get in the way so much, but you know High School, a week to do a draft, 3 days to get the finished copy in and imagine doing that with six and I mean 1500 words each! I am so out of my depth here!
