Squick Quest part 4 - Local HospitalityThe world is weird, and so are you.
Part 1 - http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/262524/Part 2 - http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/279321/Part 3 - http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/308692/Recap: We talked to Doris a bunch and learned more about her among other things. We decided to head to the hospital for no reason besides exploring.
(Original with better grass that was too big to upload: http://oi65.tinypic.com/33xubr5.jpg)You stand in front of the town's hospital, Eleanor Memorial Sanitarium. It towers above and if your eyesight was better you could see the figures passing by the windows, apparently very busy.
Doris drags you along "Come on, come on slowpoke! They look like they could use some help, this place has been very busy lately. We aren't doing anything else so we might as well. Besides I got some friends inside I should check on!"[2/3]
The two of you enter just as a young nurse is walking by with a bucket of organs and other biological materials.[3/3]
>>333777>Talk to the nurse.See if see needs help
(>>333777)Slow night... here's some options then.>Talk to the nurse.>Talk to the receptionist.>Explore. See who needs help.>Or something else?Hit delete without thinking. -__-
>>333817>>Talk to the nurse.>See if see needs help
>>333777 (Deleted double trips q_q )>>333809>>333908You walk forward and ask the nurse if she needs any help. The nurse, who was carefully carrying the organs gets startled and loses her grip on the bucket.[1/2]
The organs and stuff spill out onto the floor. The nurse begins to frantically grab the pieces and put them in the bucket.>"Oh god oh god he is going to kill me..." she says panicking.Doris rushes over and helps her pick everything up before helping the nurse to her feet who is now visibly shaken.[2/2]
>>333992Help her put it back up n the basket
>>334071You and Doris help pick up the things. The nurse is shaking a bit and blushes lightly.>Uh... t-thanks for the help...Doris smiles and rubs the back of her neck.>No problem, I mean we startled you to begin with...
I'm gonna head off for now. I'll be on earlier tomorrow probably so we'll see how that goes.
>>334192Ask to follow her and see what is happening in the hospital
>>333649Woah wait, what happened to our hair?
>>335178SHIT. Ignore that.
>>335105You ask to come with her in case she needs some more help.>S-sure... we are pretty busy today I could use all the help I can get...[1/2]
>>336223You two start to walk towards where the nurse needs to be while Doris stays behind a moment to talk with the receptionist.You inquire about why the hospital is so busy.>W-we just got a whole load of injured soldiers from Manchester. Some are in pretty bad shape but w-we are hoping to get them all on their feet again.She smiles a little, though it seems forced.[2/2]
>>336235offer to do a comedy routine to lift their spirits.
You think about doing some sort of comedy routine but... huh. You aren't exactly sure what sort of things such a routine would entail. You didn't exactly experience a lot of funny things during your childhood that you could work off of.
>>336411Ask her about herself
You ask her about herself.>Well I suppose we should start with my name. Most people just know me as the Doctor's Daughter, but... I do prefer Dee Dee. The title doesn't exactly make sense, as freaks like us are born from the hive and don't have parents or by extension daughters. I'm not exactly sure how this terminology arose in that case, but...She shakes her head before speaking again.>I'm more of an apprentice... I've been working under the Eleanor Memorial Sanitarium's top doctor for a few months now, and I don't feel like I'm improving. Honestly, I'm pretty... clumsy... and I think the real reason I'm here at all is because of my abilities...She frowns a little bit and sighs.
>>336586Don't put yourself down. I'm sure you can do great things, just don't give up.What is your ability though?
>>336598She grabs one of the organs from the bucket and holds it out in front of her. After a few moments, some of the tissue appears to move...The organ peels open at the top, opening into what appears to be a flower. Deedee smiles a little to herself before speaking.>I'm able to use some of my energy to force cell growth in organic materials... it comes in handy if we urgently need more tissue for surgeries or to stop bleeding... but I can't create too without becoming drowsy or even blacking out. I've been experimenting in shaping the tissue into various forms and just generally try to manipulate what I am creating. The most complex thing I've managed so far are flowers, which aren't useful at all considering most people don't have flower-shaped organs. Most of the time, however... things just sort of... turn into cancerous tumors when I try this... so I'm kind of surprised this even worked.
>>337068tell her that it's a wonderful talent and that we're sure she'll get the hang of it sooner or later.
>>337096>>337098You tell her she has a wonderful talent and that you are sure she'll get the hang of it sooner or later. She looks a bit flustered and glances at the floor, avoiding eye contact.>T-thanks, um... I'm not sure I got your name...?You give her your name(s).>T-thanks Sam and Rob... it means a lot to me...You nod and the two of you continue on your way to wherever Deedee is needed...And that's all for today! I'd do more but I need to sleep because I'm gonna be busy much of tomorrow. That gif also took a lot longer to make than I thought it would take, though it turned out alright. I should be back to continue tomorrow at around 8PM EST.
>>337358>Arrive at our destination
The two of you enter a room where a doctor is trying to stop the bleeding of someone who's unconscious. Deedee brings the organs over to the table.The doctor who's working speaks up.>Oh thank heavens you're here... this guy got hit real bad... bunch of shredder rounds... he's probably pretty torn up inside.Deedee bites her lip in worry.>What's he need?The doctor removes the cloth momentarily and thinks>Probably a spleen and a kidney... he's bleeding a lot though we are going to need a lot of flesh.You watch a bit awkwardly from the sidelines, feeling a little squeamish.
>>338909Stay out of the way, but observe
>>338909We should let the doctors handle this as we watch from afar
Postponing for another 40 minutes, something came up
You decide it would be best to keep out of their way. Probably should let those who know what they're doing to work with some breathing room. The doctor starts making incisions while Deedee waits for her turn.You figure you aren't much use right now so you offer your organs, but the doctor puts a hand up as if to stop you from talking.>No need, we got just about everything we need here... we could use some more stuff but we might be fine without it.Deedee gives you an odd smile.>T-thanks for offering though... we don't get many donors.
>>340163take off bob's blindfold so that he has to watch too
>>340163I'm here if I am needed
>>340253You take off Rob's blindfold so he can watch too. He isn't particularly thrilled by watches anyway. He figures he might as well try to learn something from the doctors, so he watches them.>>340264This is a reply to the post right?
>>340276If they are ok with it, ask them about the operation is.
>>340276maybe we should catch up with doris and see how her friends are doing.
>>340276It is a response to the post. Supposed to be said to the doctor
>>340297>>340264>>340310You ask about how the surgery is going. The doctor pauses a moment before speaking.>Looks like it should go smoothly... We just gotta open 'em up and remove all the spent bullets and whatever organs are shredded up. We should have replacements for anything their missing, and then Deedee here can help with closing the wounds.After opening the wound he reaches in and pulls out a warped metal object.>Aha, here's one of though devils... this thing does Hell to someone's internal organs. Lucky it didn't hit anything too important...He chuckles a little and gets back to work.>>340304You tell Deedee that you are gonna go check on Doris and her friends.>A-alright... if we need any help I-I'll be sure to call for you! Your friend is p-probably in the next room.You nod and start to walk away, leaving the doctor's to their work.
>>340344>Check in on Doris
>>340348>>340304You head into the next room and spot Doris leaning over another patient. She smiles slightly and you can overhear part of their conversation...???>...we were so close, I could nearly bite her! Walter and Leon got away unscathed, but not I swear to you she looked me dead in the eye!Doris>You've told me this already three times... you really should just rest, alright? Don't strain yourself any more...You approach them and Doris smiles slightly more and waves at you.Doris>Hey there Sam, Rob..
Alright, heading off for the night. Should continue tomorrow at the right time (8pm EST) without delays.
>>340404Ask about what you just overheard
>>340833You ask Doris what the two were talking about.DorisOh, he's just uh... kind of out of it right now. You probably heard me say he mentioned the same thing three times? He's suffering from some sort of head trauma.Doris waves a hand around by her ear in a "cuckoo" motion, trying to lighten the mood. Her friend appears to have already passed out.
>>340947How long has he been like this?
You ask her how long he's been in this condition. She shrugs.Doris - I'm not totally sure actually. The others that found him estimated... he was like this a couple days before getting here? I've tried talking to him but he keeps repeating himself...She sighs and closes her eyes a moment before opening them again.Doris - We also aren't really sure what happened- well I mean besides the blunt force trauma. Each time he tells his story it changes a little, so...She gives a careful smile.Doris - He's going to be fine, but, I can't help myself from worrying.
>>341937What are some of the things he claimed happened to him
>>341971You ask her about the things her friend claimed happened to him.Doris - Well... he just so claimed that he came face to face with probably the most dangerous outlaw ever...She smiles, but you can tell there is no happiness in it.Doris - Aaaand he claimed that she might be planning to hit this town next...END OF PART 4
