[complete] Working with boring people can make you sick

[complete] Working with boring people can make you sick

Postby Jack Greengrass » Sat Aug 24, 2013 10:20 am

He'd started to feel a little woozy during his impromptu meeting in the cafe line with the Kirbin, senior International Magical Trading Standards Body clerk. That job title alone was enough to send someone into a coma, and so he'd assumed it was that.

After a few moments, however, he had a fleeting moment of realization that it might be more than the boring little man, before he was stumbling sideways, reaching out a hand for the wall to steady himself but finding someone's shoulder instead. He opened his mouth to apologize, but promptly closed it again when his stomach made it apparently that it was getting in on the party.

He stumbled quickly in what he hoped was the general direction of the little Ministry clinic, barely making it inside before he had to close his eyes and take two, then three deep, steadying breaths and sweat beaded on his brow.

((OOC: I looked up all the healing spells mentioned in the books, and they didn't mention much in terms of healing, so I'm going to kind of wing it a little? If it breaks stuff, let me know, I'll edit! :D))

Nico was currently on duty, and the clinic was quite slow at the moment; she was passing the time making some notes in a file when the man walked in. Immediately, she was on her feet, moving swiftly toward him.

"Hey," she said, reaching out to steady him. "Are you all right?"

((Wing away! No one will play canon police :333))

It was a testament to how not all right Jack was that it didn't even occur to him to make a smart ass comment in reply. "No." He said simply, still gripping the doorframe as if it were the only thing keeping him upright (it was.) He had not opened his eyes.

"All right, come on then," she said gently as she moved to his side. "Put your arm around my shoulders."

He did as she said, but standing absolutely still was the only thing keeping his stomach contents where they were. He didn't have time to find a trashcan, but he at least turned away from the woman so he didn't throw up on her robes.

"All right," Nico said once he'd finished. "How are you feeling? Can you make it to an exam table, or do you want to go to the men's room?"

After the last few heaves, Jack actually started feeling a little better. Better is, of course, a relative term, and he felt far from feeling good, but it seemed the wave of nausea was passing almost as quickly as it'd come over him. Raising his arm weakly, he wiped his mouth with the sleeve of his robe, which was gross but the alternative was grosser. As he did so, Jack shook his head, then regretted it instantly because it throbbed. Instead he gestured vaguely toward the exam table, then took a deep, steadying breath before and moving to sit on it. "Awful." He said as he shuffled over and sat heavily. "But better'n a few second ago."

"All right," she said, seeming totally unaffected by the mess as she steadied him. "You can lie down if you want, just make sure it's on your side, OK?"

With that, she turned toward the mess on the floor and cast a quick "Scourgify!" before turning back to the man. With a murmur, she cast another spell, and the tip of her wand glowed a bit blue as she moved it around him, scanning. "What's your name?"

"Jack Greengrass," He said, tone still weak. But he'd managed to stay upright at least, and hadn't hurled again, so things were looking up. "And you are?" He added with a small, tired lift at the corner of his mouth that was meant to be a smirk.

She cracked a little smile at him as she scanned him and said,

"Nico Vale. It's nice to meet you, Jack." Then,

"So tell me about when you started to feel ill. What have you eaten today?"

He tried to think back if he'd eaten anything that morning. "I think I had a couple of pumpkin pasties around 9." His tone said he wasn't exactly confident in that. "But I felt fine all morning. I was in line to get lunch, just now," He jerked his thumb over his shoulder in the general direction of the cafe. His tone was still on the weak side, but it was getting stronger as he spoke. "when it hit me. I knew I had to get away before I embarrassed myself in front of half the the Ministry." His look turned wry as he continued. "Shame you had to be the one I embarrassed myself in front of, instead of some crotchety old mediwizard." He sighed and shook his head, this clearly weighing on him more than the fact that he'd cast up his pitiful breakfast.

"No reason to be embarrassed," she said, giving him a smile. "I've seen much worse, I promise."

She continued to scan him and hummed. "You don't have a fever, your pulse is a little weaker than I'd like, but nothing really awful... Have you had any other symptoms?"

"No, none." He thought better of shaking his head. "Felt perfectly fine until just now. I'm not..." He paused, and gave her a wary look. "I'm not pregnant, am I?" It took everything in his power to keep a straight face.

Nico didn't even try -- she burst out laughing, shaking her head.

"That's highly doubtful," she told him with a grin. "I don't like the way this came out of the blue; for now, I'd like to keep an eye on you, get you hydrated, give you an anti-nausea potion. If you're feeling all right in a little bit, we can send you back to work. How does that sound?"

Jack gave up the act and grinned broadly, pleased his joke had elicited the proper response. "Sounds good to me, but you have to promise to let me stay here long enough to redeem myself from earlier," He gestured vaguely toward the place where he threw up. "That was a horrible first impression. I"m usually much more charming than that. Or at the very least, have much better aim." He was joking, but not entirely about the last part. Missing the wastebasket was a bigger hit to the ego than the barfing had been.

She grinned back at him. "Well, don't worry, all is practically forgiven already. Like I said, I've seen a lot worse, and you're already my most charming patient today, easily."

"Yeah?" He seemed rather cheered by that. "What do I have to do to move that practically to completely? I know," he continued without giving her a chance to answer. "I could take you out and promise to go the whole time without throwing up on you." He grinned brightly, the twinkle in his eye saying he knew he was being incredibly obvious and cheesy. It was part of the fun, after all.

She laughed, then considered him for a moment, then nodded, grinning.

"All right, Jack Greengrass," she agreed. "A no-vomit date to redeem yourself."

It was with that same grin that she cast a scourgify spell on his sleeve.

He only flushed a little when she cleaned the vomit off his sleeve. "And just think, we'll have this cute story to tell our grandkids." Jack said with a shit eating grin.

Nico's eyes widened, her expression one of exaggerated horror.

"Don't make me remember I have an appointment to brush my dog, Greengrass!" she said, a laugh in her voice.
