“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 당신 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 당신 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 당신 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 상단, 맨 위로 of the bottle with a syringe, sucking 0,5 ml tetanus-toxoïd. “Jeremy, this is going to sting a bit” she said as she injected the vaccine in his left arm. “There 당신 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 당신 coming?” Alaric asked.
“Eh, yeah, 당신 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. 당신 look like 당신 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 당신 could prescribe me something”
The doctor nodded. “Are 당신 full-grown?” Silence. “Yeah” Jeremy said 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 said 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 당신 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 당신 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 당신 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 said agitated. “Now, 당신 have to go, before she gets back”
“Thank you” Jeremy said and he left the room.
