Finding the lost. (part 3)

Submission type:

Taiyo sat listening to Canni breath.  It was deep and steady indicating she was in full REM sleep.  Something triggered a primal sense, causing Taiyo to open her eyes.  A tall, dark haired woman stood in the door.  Tayio was impressed with the woman’s skill, and noted to try to find out more about her and where she was trained.

Standing slowly and placing her hands behind her back, Taiyo addressed the stranger.  “Greetings. Please do not disturb the youth, as she need time to recover enough to be moved.  Please indicate if you mean harm or not to her.”

Jeassiah hesitatated for the breifest of moments, cursing inwardly at herself when the other woman spoke, surprising her as she'd not fully been focused as soon as she'd stepped into the car wash. She instinctively set the butt of the shot gun to her should and had it half raised before she took a moment to focus to just beyoind the woman and had anotehr shock, seeing Canni laying upon some sort of travel cot, and from what she could tell, sleeping, though from what Jeass also know of the young woman, sleeping in a situation like this would be something she'd also likely not do.

She narrowed her eyes behind her dark shades upon the other woman who'd by now had risen fully to her feet, and though Jeass would guess she seems totally calm something about how she moved sparked a warning in her to keep some ditance and not turn her back on this one for a moment until she knew for certain what was going on. She used her thumb to cock back th twin hammes of the shot just as a precaution as well before speaking in a releatively soft tone, "Whom are yee an` what have yee done wit de Canni girl?"

Taiyo noted her stance, and kept her position.  "My name is Taiyo, I am the medic with a group known as the Law Dogs.  I am here to care for the child, as she seems to have let an infection in her leg fester to the point of almost gangrenous levels."

Moving so she did not obstruct the view of Canni, but still keeping between the woman and the child she continued.  Her hands still hidden beheld her back.  “As you can see, she is breathing and unharmed.  She is sedated while the Nanites clean and repair her leg.  I have no intention on detaining or harming her in any way.”

Moving back to a more protective position, Taiyo finished. “Now may I ask who you are and what your interest in the child is.”

Jeassiah's eyes narrow a fraction as the woman, now known to her as Taiyo spoke, and in those carefully chosen words she could also get some sense of feeling, the earlier intuition only made stronger now that she's answered the first question. It  didnt do much to put Her at ease just yet, but she also considered the answer just as carefully before she offered her own answers in return.

"Me name is Jeassiah, an interest in her...is difficult to put ta words mos` would understan`. Either way, if yee Are a officer, yer way outa yer way ta be here, even fer her. Though ah'd say the first thing needs be done is get Canni from here ta somewhere...well...less drafty an more comfort. Then we call de Doc in."

And while she was answering that and keeping a close on on the response of the woman to her suggestion, she also added to the short list of whom else she'll be calling starting with Hyle to tell her some law types were poking around in Hope and to appraise her that Canni was here and hurt.

"IF I may sugges`, we take `er upstairs to be place, at least is bigger bed and she can be clean up a bit before de Medica show up to see to her more, no?"

Taiyo nods.  "Agreed.  I am a doctor as you say, but if you wish another present that is your choice.  So long as the child is not threatened when she wakes.  She will be groggy and probbaly hostile when the sedatives wear off." 

Turning Taiyo gently picks up Canni. “And just to be clear, I am no Officer.  Just a person trying to make the world a better place.”

Hooking the strap on her bag with a finger, she nods to Jess, “Please lead the way, I do not wish her to wake this close to my throat.”
