“Okay, that doesn’t look very nice” the doctor said. Jeremy was sitting on the examination table, Alaric was leaning onto the closet. “I’m afraid I’m going to have to stitch” While she prepared her stitching material she talked to her patient. “So, how did this happen? Were আপনি involved in a fight?” Jeremy looked how she pierced the stitching scissor in his hand. “No, it wasn’t like that. It was an accident” he answered. “I broke a cup, two cups. Cut my hand” The doctor nodded. “Are আপনি vaccinated for tetanus?” Jeremy looked up at Alaric, who helplessly raised his hands. “Ehm, I’m not sure. Is that important?” he asked. “Oh, don’t worry, I’ll give আপনি an injection” She waved at the nurse and she went to the cupboard with the medication and vaccination and she took a small, colorless flacon. She gave it to the doctor and she pierced the শীর্ষ of the bottle with a syringe, sucking 0,5 ml tetanus-toxoïd. “Jeremy, this is going to sting a bit” she ব্যক্ত as she injected the vaccine in his left arm. “There আপনি go” she said. She put the needle down and gave him a compress. He pressed it on the injection wound, while the doctor took a plaster. “There, you’re done” she said, while she threw the compress in the garbage can.
“Okay, are আপনি coming?” Alaric asked.
“Eh, yeah, আপনি can go” Jeremy said. “I’m coming, I just need to ask something”
“Well, then I’ll wait” Alaric said.
“No, man, it’s cool” Jeremy insisted. “Go have a coffee. আপনি look like আপনি could use it” And thus Alaric left the examination room. Jeremy looked at the doctor. “Ehm, see, I’m having trouble sleeping and I wondered if আপনি could prescribe me something”
The doctor nodded. “Are আপনি full-grown?” Silence. “Yeah” Jeremy ব্যক্ত very unconvincing. The doctor raised an eyebrow. “No” Jeremy admitted. “I can’t prescribe anything to minors without parental approval. That man, is he your father?” Jeremy shook his head. “No, he’s my history teacher. My parents are dead” he ব্যক্ত soft. “Who’s your legal guardian?” the doctor asked. “My sister” Jeremy answered. “Call her and ask her to come” the doctor said. “There’s a phone in the hall way আপনি can use” Jeremy gave in and left the room. He looked around in the hall way and spotted the telephone. He walked towards it and dialed Elena’s number when he saw the doctor leave the room. He hung up and sneaked back to the room. He quietly pushed the latch down and entered the room. He looked around; at first sight he seemed to be alone. He walked to the cupboard where the nurse had taken the vaccine and he searched through it. The problem was that he had no idea how a cure for sleep disorder was called, so he had to read what was on the boxes very carefully.
“What are আপনি doing here?”
Jeremy looked aside and saw the nurse staring at him with a shocked expression on her face and her hands on her hips. “You’re not supposed to be here and you’re definitely not supposed to be in that cupboard. Get out before I call the doctor”
“Listen, I need this” Jeremy tried to explain. “I’m not having an addiction. But it’s been nearly two weeks since I had a proper sleep. Can’t আপনি prescribe me anything?”
“No, I’m not a doctor” the nurse protested.
“Please, I’m desperate” Jeremy begged. The eyes of the nurse flashed to the door and back at Jeremy. “Maybe I can help you. Meet me at the church at eight o’clock” she ব্যক্ত agitated. “Now, আপনি have to go, before she gets back”
“Thank you” Jeremy ব্যক্ত and he left the room.
