(( 5000 actually, but what you’re referring to probably happened around 50.000 years ago. Mankind has changed a lot in the last 5000 years but not THAT dramatically. At least not dramatically enough to stumble over it. If they actually knew what to search for, perhaps. Since they don’t expect him to be more than your average guy who got mugged, stripped and stabbed, they’re probably not going to see anything like that… Though there are things that they are bound to run into… ))
He was intubated and hooked up to two blood bags already.
Little electrodes checking his heart and pulse.
One of those typical sickish-hospital-green sheets had been thrown hastily over his lower torso and legs.
They had been rather busy and quick, but slowly the haste was calming down. The situation had seemed urgent and lethal.
Then suddenly more relaxed, until someone rushed in with a quick note from the lab and the bustling began anew.
They ordered more blood bags.
They didn’t like how his blood flew, they didn’t like how it settled at the wounds and they didn’t like how it looked.
They were surprised about the wounds though. Those looked as if the healing process had already set in a few days ago.
- Thanks to Asmodeus’ and Gabriel’s work… -
They expected him to bleed severely considering how slowly his blood clotted. But it could barely be called leaking or seeping.
It was confusing, but something that worked to their advantage and therefore examining the cause could wait for later.
Even the bloodloss was a positive thing in this case, if they kept giving him blood transfusion, they were going to prevent further damage.
At least for now.
There were some questions though, concerning the treatment…
The nurse listened to the instructions one of the ‘Gods in white’ gave her.
Then she approached that man who had come with the patient. He looked like he was going to collapse any minute himself so she offered him a chair and a glass of water.
"Sir?" she said with a calm voice. "We can’t seem to reach Mr. Allens’ brother, the one who made the emergency call."
Apparently she expected him to know whom she was talking about.
"You have been asked a lot of questions already today. And I know this is not easy for you, Sir. But is there anything else you can tell us about Mr. Allens or his relatives? It may seem like a strange question, but is it possible that someone in his family is from South-east Europe, the Middle East or Africa, Mr… uhm… I’m sorry I must have overheard your name..?”
She made a break to let it sink in a bit with him before continuing.
