Nia thought it over. "You're right," she said. She laughed a bit. "Sorry, dear. I got a bit presumptuous. I guess my being new to the wasteland still shows, huh?" Nia put a blanket over the raider who overdosed on Buffout. "At least I have someone familiar to the place to set me straight."

"We'll have to leave soon," Lakesha said. "It's too easy for people to wander in. The floor can't handle many more super-mutants."

"Yeah, we typically can't stay in one place for long. I was thinking of trying the sewers next. There's not too many places not already full of some crawly though," Razu said. "Let me find you a room."

"Hey Jill, don't forget the pile of scrap, nails, and hammer on your way to the door," Lakesha said. "Close it up again. The sound he made when he came in suggests a bunch of damage."

Razu led Tyson away from Lakesha and Jill. "So I'm sure you've noticed most people here were slaves. I hope you can appreciate how scared they are. A couple of these guys will probably kill themselves before they get taken again. Many more would rather kill you. I'm not saying you're a slaver, I'm saying you don't walk with the same amount of fear as some of the people in here, and there are slavers who are smart enough to say they aren't slavers.

"Don't worry. I give the same speech to everyone. Keeps the ex-slaves calmer, to know someone has their back. A few things to note: Be careful around the women. Assume most of them have been victims of sexual violence, because they have. Especially the ex-slaves. Jill, the girl I hadn't introduced earlier, has had very specific paranoia set in about that, so don't get too close to her, make too many sudden moves, and so on.

"Lakesha, well, I think she has some sort of mental illness that I don't know about. As a wasteland doctor, we tend to be more concerned about the body than the mind, so I can't even find literature on mind-illnesses. What I can tell you is, if she's completely unresponsive, don't try to wake her up." Razu pushed his hair back, revealing that he didn't have a left ear. "That's how I lost this. Other symptoms seems to be a complete lack of social skills. If you feel insulted by what she says, the best thing to do seems to be to tell her this directly, then explain logically why. For example: "It upsets me that you imply my mother is a whore, because I am very attached to my mother, and she is not a whore."

"I'm the doctor. Well, there are more, like Jill, but seeing her paranoia, let's just leave it at "I'm the doctor." This is my 'office.'" Razu opened the door. "The room next to me just opened up. Most people don't like to stay there because of the patient's crying and screaming and all that. Feel free to let me know if you mind, and I'll find you a better room. Any questions?"
