The Arrangement, Part 1

Posted on Wed Oct 24th, 2018 @ 9:03am by Civilian Tamar Todd & Civilian Esperanza Roman

Mission: Every Day - March 2012
Location: Townsend Tower/Infirmary
Timeline: Wednesday, March 7, 2012/Late Evening

Esperanza looked through the window of the private infirmary room. Tamar was slouched in the chair in the corner, nodding off, fighting sleep. Mary Ellen lay still, waifish and emaciated, under light sedation to help her sleep and ignore the pain of her body starving to death. Esper shook her head. Something needed to be done or the girl would die.

Esperanza looked down at the tablet in her hand. She scrolled again through the files of mutants that had shown similar mutations as Mary Ellen’s and the notes Esper had taken. She took a breath and headed into the room.

Tamar jerked awake and looked up at Esper with a weak smile. “Sorry. Must’ve dozed off,” she murmured.

“It’s late,” Esper told her, putting a hand on Tamar’s shoulder and giving it a reassuring squeeze. “You should go to bed.”

“Ah cain’t,” Tamar said. “Emmy needs me.”

“Mary Ellen isn’t going anywhere,” Esper said. “She will be here in the morning. You aren’t doing anyone any good by running yourself ragged.”

Tamar sighed and rubbed her face tiredly. She had dark circles under her eyes. “Yer prob’ly right,” she said with a sigh. “Thanks, Esper. Yer a good friend.” She stood and hugged the taller woman.

Tell me that tomorrow, Esperanza thought, but returned the hug.

Tamar watched her go and then looked down at her tablet again. It was time to do what needed to be done.”
