Alasdair was taken to the medical science facility. Arellia had only been allowed to follow because of her status. They do have a hospital for the public, but that would have meant more travelling.
They took him to be full body scanned and the results made Arellia cringe. A couple of broken and fractured ribs, shattered shoulder blades, cracked skull, definite concussion if not brain damage and snapped collar bones.
“Damn, that’s going to take a lot of work”, the leading medical scientist said. She was a slender, and tall woman that had introduced herself as ‘Maaria’ while Alasdair was in the scan. “Your highness he’s going to need some of our experimental treatments, do we have your permission?”, She said her dark eyes locked with Arellia’s. This was when her heart sank deepest, she had not known fear until this point. She didn’t really have time to truly think about it.
“Yes, I want him recovered back to his usual self”, her voice sounded calmer than she truly felt.
Alasdair was taken away, out of her sight. Her worrying thoughts made her heart panic. She couldn’t sit still. After hours of them all being gone she had paced the full length of the city inside that small corridor. No one had come out to speak to her, no one had explained what those procedures were that she had agreed to. Now that she was thinking about it. Did she have a choice?
A door opened. She turned to it. She didn’t care of the fact that door was the entrance she had come from to get to this corridor. She just wanted someone to give her news on Alasdair.
But it was neither one of the scientists or Alasdair. It was Jeremy. He was covered in sweat, and panting.
“Laura is looking for you”, He said.
“Tsk, yes I had agreed to make weekly announcements to the people”, She worried her bottom lip between her teeth.
“Well go do that, and I’ll wait-…”.
“No”, She snapped.
“The people won’t wait”, Jeremy said. He used the understanding tone that people used on her when they didn’t want to upset someone. But that only irritated her.
“They will wait”, she argued. Her pacing started again. Her foot falls harder than before. Jeremy hurried to keep pace with her.
“You can’t do that, they won’t understand”, Jeremy protested.
“I am not leaving!”, she shouted at the top of her lungs. Her eyes wide with fury. Her body shook. All of her insides felt like a storm of turmoil. Jeremy quickly apologised and went to inform Laura of the situation.
She was alone again. Left to her minds constant fearing paranoia. Arellia didn’t cry, as much as she wanted to, she refused to allow tears to fall.
