The Dragon Talisman
Part One: Ryo
Taking off her outer clothing, she set the shower for ‘steam’ and began to wait. She activated the trapdoor function (it would lead to where the portal was set for). She was there for about fifteen minutes when she heard the familiar knock. She unlocked the door to the room, and activated the trapdoor function. She was warped immediately to Seiji’s room. In all honesty, Seiji’s room was actually an entire wing. He had a slightly (only slightly?) annoying habit of picking up sick people who couldn’t afford Medicare and healing them. When he couldn’t cram them all in his room, he had to buy a wing from Nasuti. His family didn’t approve, but they offered to fund a little bit of it.
There were four rules in the wing: No violence, it will disturb the patients. No grudges in the top of your mind, I will pick up on them. Please be sober when you enter the wing, if you are too loud you will break two of the rules. And finally, no disturbing ME! They were posted on every door.
Nasuti entered the last door in the hall. There she found Touma, reading a book full of short stories. After reading one with him, they began to debate. After a while both could hear an enraged sound. Touma frowned. Both knew that sound all too well: someone was disturbing Seiji. And Seiji was not one to disturb when treating a patient. The sound of a door closing then, “d*mmit Ryo, how many times have I f*cking told you: Do not enter this wing if you are goshda**ed drunk!” …!?!D*m* you Seiji! Will you f*c*ing let me in this goshda**ed s*i*-house!?!… The cat’s yawn (That’s what Seiji’s mind voice sounds like) replied, …!!No Ryo, I will not. You are bad for my patients, bad for my mental health and bad for my reputation!!… Quickly, Touma shoved Nasuti under the tile in front of the window and locked the door. He climbed out, falling soundlessly to the ground, pulled a string, caught her as she fell, and sent her off to the forest. Following as quickly as he could.
