Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 15, 2007, 7:27pm

Or, sometimes you don't die, just get poisoned into a coma.

Its the middle of the 'night' in the medbay. Things that go beep, go beep. Things that shouldn't beep, don't.

Its all a perfectly normal situation.

….

….

And it continues to be. A perfectly routine shift.

Oh. Except the mutie freak in a corner woke up.

Rapt looked around the room. For a few long seconds, with the machine beside him giving off a frantic beeping, he couldn't figure out where he was.

Then he recognized the medbay, and the Shi'ar hovering beside him, jabbering in rushed Shi'ar.

Taking a few seconds to translate what the doctor was saying, Rapt realized the gist of what he was saying, and, after a few slurred attempts, managed to choke out a few questions, primarily consisting of 'what', 'where', 'when', and managing to get the doctor to not call anyone else in. He wanted to know what was going on before that happened.

A short time later, Rapt poked his head out the medbay door. The hallway was clear. He could surely make it back to his quarters without drawing too much attention.

He would if a creature wasn't following him, curious, and a bit hungry. I thought I saw teradon..

"…Rapt!"

I was just on my way to the medbay. Not to check up on Rapt, actually; I've already done that for today. I was actually coming to get this weird candy things the lady in the medbay gives me every time she checks me up. They're like chocolate, only a lot sweeter and harder, and they never melt, and you can suck them for a long time. Like chocolate jawbreakers. Yum yum.

So, anyway, I was on my way to see if I could get a few, and I spot Rapt - RAPT - walking out and standing and, you know…not being in a coma. So I run over to him, catching him in a tackle hug. "You're awake!"

The creature ducks back out of sight behind an overhang at the spotting Roxy. He did not want to be seen in case this turned into a hunt.

Kalvin happened to be walking in the other direction when he heard Roxanne's yell. He slowly turned around to see her tackle hug him. However bad it may be, his only thought was about how awkward this was going to be. Regardless, he turned and walked back towards Rapt.

"So you are." He agrees with Roxanne.

"Yes….. Roxanne, nice to see you" Rapts voice comes a bit breathless, what with the Madrock on him

"Oh, geez, I'm sorry." I back up. "But you're awake! How are you feeling?"


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 7:48pm

Kalvin can't help but smile at Roxie.

"What she said."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.

"Like I've been in bed for a week. Sore. Are you and everyone alright?"


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 7:50pm

"You've actually been in bed for like…awhile, but yeah. Everyone's doing alright as far as I know…"

Yup, awwwwkward.

"Yes, I know. It was an example. The doctor mentioned the date."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 7:54pm

"I would hope so, that IS kinda his job."

Kalvin looks around absently.


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Marisol Morales on Sept 15, 2007, 7:56pm

I look at Rapt. I look at Kalvin. I look at Rapt. I look at Kalvin. I look at Rapt. I look at Kalvin. Rapt. Kalvin. Rapt. Kalvin. Rapt. Kalvin.

"You know, I just remembered, I…uh…left a cookie in the oven." I leap up, giving Rapt a kiss on the cheek and running off. "Bye, Rapt!"

"….I didn't know she was allowed to use the stove."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 7:59pm

"…I didn't know we had a stove."

Hmm..they know him, pitty. Off to subsection 6. Should be some terramites floating around. A giant familar spider drops down from the cieling, scurries past them, and into a vent just a few feet away from them.

Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 15, 2007, 8:00pm

"There are always stoves, …in space."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 8:01pm

Kalvin glances at Fang scurrying away…awesome.

"If we have a stove, why do we need to use the food replicator things?"

That's right, Kalvin, make with the small talk.


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 15, 2007, 8:10pm

"Yeah…well… I need to do some catching up. I'll see you later?"


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Protoman on Sept 15, 2007, 8:14pm

"Yeah, you've got some catching up to do…" Kalvin isn't sure what to say. They obviously needs to talk, but Kalvin really doesn't want to bring it up. "Yeah…" He turns and walks away.

Nicolette hovered in with the express purpose that Rapt could see her new rank.

"Hello," she said with a slight smile.


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 15, 2007, 11:35pm

"Hello." Rapt greets Nicolette. And then walks past her towards his room, as if she was any of the crewmembers one passes, giving a greeting, but nothing more.

She wondered if he saw…

She turned around and hovered after him without missing a beat, repressing the urge to correct him by saying something like "Hello, ma'am" or the like.

"How are you feeling?"


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 15, 2007, 11:44pm

In leu of a verbal reply, Rapt gives an exaggerated shrug, not slowing any on his ways through the corridor.


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by BornIn1142 on Sept 15, 2007, 11:47pm

"So… does that mean you don't feel like anything or that you don't know how you're feeling?"


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 16, 2007, 12:00am

"It means I'm well enough at the moment."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by BornIn1142 on Sept 16, 2007, 12:03am

"Great! We've all been anxious for you to wake up."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 16, 2007, 4:03pm

"I'm sure." Rapt looks around, a bit distracted, before seeing the correct corridor, and making a turn.

"Do me a favor, and bring me a few of the logs since I've been out of commission? I have some catching up to do."

"Oh, are you still feeling a little weak? Don't worry, you can upload them into your room's computer with hardly any effort at all."


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by Rapt "Roc"/Fragment/Fraternity on Sept 16, 2007, 8:55pm

"I just thought you might want to feel useful." Rapt smiles pleasantly, making the final turn, and opening his quarters door.


Re: Lifes a bitch, then you die.
Post by BornIn1142 on Sept 16, 2007, 11:25pm

"Oh, I wouldn't worry about that! But anyway, I hope you feel better soon. Bye-bye."
