Silver linings?

Location: Infirmary

Jrez materialised straight onto a biobed. He felt none the better for having just had all his cells scrambled then put back together. If anything, he felt worse.

He unceremoniously leant over the edge of the bed to vomit but nothing came out, no matter how much his stomach spasmed.

"Give him two point four," a male voice said. The soft hiss of the hypospray was familiar but Jrez barely felt it.

"Chief, can you hear me?"

"Yes," he replied through lips that refused to move and a tongue that felt like it has swollen to fill his mouth.

"Let's run a complete blood count, basic metabolic, and hematocrit," Doctor Morissey said to a nurse, who nodded and drew a blood sample. "Histamine as well please. His heart rate is high," he added, watching the monitor. "Chief, I'm going to give you a muscle relaxer, just a little. It will work in conjuction with the painkiller we just gave you."

Jrez was beyond responding verbally. He just grunted and held out an arm.

"This will help you to sleep too," Morissey said.
