Description

Hello My Name is: Ren Katakura
Please Call me: Red
My Birthday is: October 3rd, 21 years of age.
Well Obviously I'm: Male
If you must know I'm: Bisexual
Oh I'm: Mostly stable
It's Been: Four years

~ . ~

My Shampoo?: Crimson
I Don't Need Glasses: Golden
Does This Make Me Look Fat?: 140lbs
Well I Think I'm: 6 feet exactly
Aren't I Pretty: Ren's back is covered in burn scars

~ . ~

Well I'd Honestly Prefer: Watching people squirm, bitter foods, blood, writing, exercise.
Hate Is Such a Strong Word: Sweets, overly happy people, nurses, fire.
I'm Speshful!: Ren is sadistic, cold, and manipulative. Though he will never force himself upon another person, instead waiting for their consent before torturing them. As such he is considered a stable patient. He is very focused and observant. He'll remember the smallest details about people, even after only meeting them once. His smile is never a happy one, its always sick and twisted. More of a smirk than a smile. Despite his dislike of nurses, he'll put up with just about anybody, except happy go lucky people. Those guys just piss him off. Going hand in hand with being a sadist, he's also a pervert. When he's mad he doesn't yell or look like he's getting mad. He gets quiet, very very quiet, that's when you want to run. Fast. He's surprisingly friendly with people, always saying hello, or good morning, or whatever. If someone is being left out of a conversation, he'll make sure to get them involved somehow. When he finds someone he cares about he becomes very affectionate and protective. Overly affectionate and protective. Which is why any relationships he had in the past ended within a week.
This One Time!: Ren has always enjoyed the pain of others. Even as a baby he would laugh when someone got hurt. His parents just thought he would outgrow it, and it was just some sort of little boy thing. But he never did. Then the incident happened. A fire started in Ren's house, killing his family and almost killing him. Nobody could figure out how the fire started, only Ren knew and he refused to tell anyone. During his long recovery in the hospital was when he really started to change. The over happy, pity filled nurses made him sick. He started walking around everyday just to see the pain other people were going through. When he broke a nurse's finger just to hear her scream, they knew something was wrong. The nurse who's finger had been broken stayed with him almost all the time. Talking to him, taking him out to the garden, whatever it was. She suggested giving him a notebook and pencil, so they he could have an outlet for his desire to see pain. It worked beautifully. What he wrote was horribly, horribly, messed up, but very well written. That nurse would read every word of what he wrote and encourage him to write more. Then one day, the nurse was transferred somewhere else and things started going downhill. With no one who was willing to talk to him, or read his stories, or even go near him. He started flat out attacked nurses, doctors, other patients, anyone who went near him. As soon as he was healthy they sent him to the asylum, in hopes that they could help him.
The More You Know: Ren almost always has a red notebook and black mechanical pencil with him. Now his stories, instead of being just sick have actual plots to them. He still writes things with lots of violence, such as murder mysteries, or ones from a serial killers point of view, or about fantasy lands in the middle of wars.

Even woke up to his alarm clock going off next to his ear. Growling and cursing the morning simply for existing, he sat up and hit his alarm clock with a little more force then he probably should have. After standing and walking back and forth mentally going over today's list of to-dos Eve finally decided to get dressed. Throwing on a long sleeve shirt and then a bright green scrubs Eve reminded himself to buy some more next time he went into town. 'Or I could simply order them a spend my day off with Egg...' Eve sat a contemplated that though before he looked over at his alarm clock and went wide eyed.

Quickly pulling on a pair of black pants he bolted into the bathroom and finally into the empty halls. The patients have always been permitted to awake at whatever time they desire but Eve was still head nurse and that meant giving the morning announcement at precisely 7:00 of course he had to run errands first so he knew what to announce in the first place. After making his rounds through the now mostly empty halls Eve finally walked into the nurses command center... In reality it was just the front desk with a small room behind it full of charts but Eve though command center sounded cooler. After saying hello to the secretary Eve grabbed the phone and pressed the announcement button. "Good morning all staff and patients, It is officially 7:00 and breakfast will now be available-"

Eve continued to drone on about any special events the day might hold while also running through when lunch would become available then dinner. "That is all for the day, and while I'm sure that one day one of you is going to kill me for making these so boring I hope that's not today because I'm actually feeling somewhat chirpy." Finally Eve pulled the phone away from his face and set it down ignoring the raised eye brow the secretary gave him. After grabbing his patient list Eve decided it was time to head to the dining room where all the awake and hungry patients would be converging. He needed some food and he also needed to check up on a few of the patients.

Egg awoke to the sound of hallway speakers cracking as her brothers voice came on. Groaning she threw a pillow onto her face and curled up. In the privacy of her own room Egg allowed herself to mentally will the speakers to explode. 'At least everything makes sense...' Egg smiled happy she had not awoken with her communication disorder acting up as that normally signaled it would last for the day causing her extreme irritation and finally to snap at some point and break something. Yawning Egg slowly pulled the pillow off of her head in time to catch her brothers parting message. Snickering Egg considered the possibility of another patient actually killing her brother for being boring.

Sitting up Egg cracked her back and finally got dressed. Being a stable patient she was allowed to choose actual clothes instead of just wearing hospital clothes... Of course her choices were never much more creative then a very baggy shirt and jeans. When she was done with her morning routine Egg left the safety of her quiet and pleasant room and ackwardly walked down the hall toward the dinning room. Her brother was already there and already eating as the nurses table. Egg smiled at this and got her own food. Thinking back to all the foods she'd eaten on a Thursday like this she groaned realizing she'd often settled for cereal. 'Well I shall have to break this trend wont I!' Feeling oddly daring Egg grabbed a plate and got herself some pancakes and eggs with a secretly pleased smile ignoring the confused and somewhat frightened cook. 'Pfff new person... Probably gonna be gone in a week.' Grabbing her plate Egg then proceeded to go over to her table in the corner. While cutting her pancake Egg also began to try and guess who would come in next thanks to her memory on who usually showed up first and how often they would in the past.

Ren looked up from his notebook as he heard the morning announcements. He had already been up for several hours writing in a fresh red notebook. He smirked when Eve said something about a patient one day killing him. Honestly Ren didn't care about the boring announcements. Just the food he could get after they were over. He had gotten ready when he had first woken up, as always he was dressed in some black jeans and a long sleeve red shirt... He tucked the notebook under his arm and left his room.

He entered the cafeteria to see that several people were there already. Quickly he made his way over to where the food was, contemplating what he wanted to have this morning. Eventually he decided on two pancakes and an apple. Despite not liking sweet foods very much, it sounded good today.

Ren decided to sit with C today, even though the man might not even remember who he was. He was sitting alone and might want the company. On his way to C's table he went past the nurses table, giving the two sitting there a good morning. He had it to C's table and sat down across from the forgetful man. "Good morning C, do you remember who I am today?" As he waited for an answer, he set his notebook down next to his tray and began eating his pancakes.

Kiko Narami

Kiko woke up to the sound of the person inside the box in the corner of his room. He knew that it was just a guy speaking into a mic in a different room. How he figured this out is a funny story. His first morning in this place, he heard that voice in the box and freaked out. For a moment he just hid under his blanket, but then he got curious. He moved his bed to the corner of the room where the magic box was and stood on it. He spent a good 30 minutes breaking the damn thing off the wall, but once her did. He wasted the next five hours figuring out the mechanical workings of it. A maid came in eventually, thinking he could have been dead and saw him playing with the magic box. She had to explain to him where the voice came from, and after that he insisted on talking to the man in the box.
After that, he'd become his favorite nurse.

So after he woke up to the voice in the magic box (Yes he knew it wasn't magic. He just liked to call it that.) he pulled on his running man shirt, checked in the closet and under the bed before heading out into the cafeteria for food. He saw other people sitting around and eating their food, but Kiko had no idea where to sit. Usually he was the first one here. He got his food and looked for an empty table. Eventually he found one, but it was in between Ren and C's table and the nurse's table. Glancing between the tables every other second he quietly nibbled his food.

Oliver was up far before the head nurse spoke on the speaker. He woke up at five every morning. Oliver wasn't sure why he woke up that early, seeing as he wasn't permitted to leave his room until seven. He had already taken a shower, brushed his teeth and fixed his hair.

Once dressed he spent a long time painting a particularly peaceful painting, which was strange for Oliver. He often painted pictures of darkness, pictures of the one he called Seven. There were hundreds of pictures the he had drawn. Usually the nurses removed them from his room and stored them in an unknown location. Oliver suspected that they were just throwing them away, not that it bothered him at all.

After messing around on the electric keyboard they allowed him to have in his room he finally decided that is was intact time to eat. His stomach rumbled in agreement. He left his room, his iPod playing music in his ears. He walked down the halls at quite a slow pace, stopping to glance out windows when he saw one. Eventually he made his way to the cafeteria, seeing that quite a few people were already there, though he hardly knew anyones name. No one ever seemed too interested in talking to Oliver, so he didn't speak to them either. Oliver grabbed the familiar food tray and grabbed himself some toast and and a bowl of cereal. He walked past the nurses table and sat at his usual table located next to a window and sat down by himself. He ate his toast quietly and looked around, careful not to make direct eye contact with anyone. He noticed the two young girls sitting near each other, he thought it was strange because people here rarely ever did that. He brushed it off and continued with his breakfast.

C was doing a three step process, take a puff on his cigarette, eat some food, watch to see who came in. There was a minor drawback in that sometimes his food tasted like his cigarette which... didn't taste really good, but it was worth it. Kinda. Well, if they had bacon for once; he might consider not smoking while he ate, but the day they did that hell would freeze over, but then again, perhaps they have done it once or twice, and he just never remembers? Well, that was a depressing thought.

He kept his green eyes trained on the door because well, there was no where else to really look besides to stare down at his tray like a beaten down convict which they kinda were. None of the gorgeous nurses were up and so there was no use checking them out, and the kids were kids. Perhaps in a year or five, he would give them the time a day, and if they developed a little more in the breast department. Keeping his eyes on the door had the added bonus of being able to see who he would remember today, but the first one to come in was not someone he remembered. A blond nurse with a respectable rack and nice hips. What? Was he, a passionate man, supposed to notice her hair or her hat? Don't be ridiculous.

C had to admit name tags were his favorite thing about dementia. Was it because it helped him pretend he had remembered who they were? No, it was because he could stare. 'I am not looking at your tag, I am staring at your boobs', he hummed to himself as a silent joke. He would have yelled it, but then C's great con would be over. He couldn't even see the name tag of the blond nurse from here as she hurried over to the other nurses table. Well, C couldn't fault her for that. If their places were switched, there was no way in hell he would want to sit by these screwed up people.

C was pulled out of his pleasant, and base, thoughts by the sudden appearance of a red haired man, but C knew who he was which was always nice.

"Good morning C, do you remember who I am today?"

C leaned back in his seat and put on a 'hurt' expression, "As if I could Red." C said and waved his fork, "You say it like I always forget people; I would never." He said back to his bland face. Yes, he was making a rather bad joke, but what else was there to do in a house full of nut jobs and freaks?

Returning his attention to the blond nurse, C shook his head, "Don't you just love name tags?" He asked Red. Now, some would be confused by his question, but C had it on good authority that Red shared his love for a nicely shaped woman, and so he was willing to bet the man would catch his drift.

Movement caught his attention once more as 'I hear dead people' and Mister Royally Fucked in the Head showed up. Did he know their names? Yes, but it was much funnier to think of them like that. Especially since Mister always had that collar on; maybe he had a serious fetish for dogs. If he were a she, C would say that was pretty hot, but as it was a he; it was just weird.

"Huh." C said looking at the two new arrivals, "Did I order extra crazy today?" He asked Red.

Hearing the words "extra crazy" pop out of C's mouth right when Kiko sat down made him frown. Why couldn't he just have a simple breakfast without harassment for once. He scooted away from the two boys slightly, his appetite almost gone.
"I'm not crazy..." He muttered, picking at his food.

Alice let her eyes roam around the cafeteria as she ate. More and more people were beginning to enter the cafeteria. She noticed some of the people that entered. The pale girl was named Sage....and the boy with the collar was named Kiko. That's all the people she really did reconize that had just entered. Of course she knew some other people in the cafeteria already that were here before. Even though there was a lot of patients, there never really was much talking. It's not like a school gymnasium where it's so loud you feel like you're in the middle of a busy day in New York. She does like that it's at least quiet though, so she doesn't have to get a headache first thing in the morning.

Her eyes continued searching the faces of the patients until they landed on a certain man with black hair that was staring right back at her. She blinked once before returning her gaze back to her plate. It seemed like he was staring at her chest. Maybe trying to figure out her name. She did have a name tag on, after all. She's not sure she reconized him. Proabably never worked with him before or actually got the chance to Introduce herself.

Alice wiped her face clean with a small napkin after she was full on her eggs and toast. She stood up slowly and grabbed her tray and looked around for a garbage. She spotted on on the opposite side of the room and sighed, 'Why so far away...?' She whined in her head as she began making the painful trip to the garbage can. It wasn't that she was lazy, it's just that she hated walking around the tables that were spread out. She remembers that one time she actually fell awhile ago because she banged her hip on a table edge and fell because she had no hands to catch herself because she was holding onto her tray. Boy, that was embarressing. She eventually made it to the garbage and scrapped the remains of her uneaten food into the garbage with her fork. She than walked over to the front and set her tray and plate on the counter so the people could wash it later.

She made her way back around the tables, but this time she was heading towards Kiko, Ren, and that guy with black hair. She smiled up at them once she arrived, "Good morning, Kiko, Ren...and.." She said as stuck out her hand in front of the guy with black hair for a hand shake. "...I don't believe we have met before. My name is Alice Thompson. And you are...?"

C put on a fake hurt expression. "As if I could Red. You say it like I always forget people; I would never." Ren laced his fingers together and placed his chin on them. "Of course not. You just left your memory in your other pants." This kind of joking was normal between some of the older patients of the asylum. It kept the sane... Well as sane as they could get. As C fixed his gaze on the nurses table Ren returned to eating. "Don't you just love name tags?" It took Ren a moment to get what C meant. "Oh yes. They're placed in such a convenient area. Though excuses don't work for me as well as they do for you. Ren was a pervert so he knew exactly what C was referring to. He finished eating and set his tray aside. "Huh? Did I order extra crazy today Red?" Ren set his notebook in front of himself and opened it to the page he had left off on. "No that was me. Crazy goes great with pancakes." Ren said with a smirk.

Ren didn't know why but he was feeling rather jokish at the moment. It was then that one of the nurses walked up. It was the blonde one with the nice features. "Good morning, Kiko, Ren...and... ...I don't believe we have met before. My name is Alice Thompson. And you are...? Ren narrowed his eyes at her, what he thought was, overly friendly tone. He had strong dislike of nurses and their kindness and pity. Always wearing those same boring outfits... Though he did have to admit he liked her hat. "Good morning Alice." He kept his tone calm and almost bored sounding.

Eve was eating when Alice sat across from him. Blinking he nodded in hello and continued to eat. Unlike most of the nurses he never rushed, maybe because he grew up with Egg he was use to life at the asylum he even enjoyed it a little. Eve watched the other patients drift in with mild interest. Looking over his patient list Eve grinned to see he had some of his favorites. By favorites he meant the ones who always told him what they were working on and because Eve was a curious brat he could not help but show interest. Eve finished his toast and looked up to see that Alice was done and now talking to some of the patients. Standing Eve cooly made his way across the cafeteria where he set down his tray. After flashing a smile to his little sister Eve walked over to where Alice was standing.

"Hey there boys please be nice to Alice, oh Tick." Eve focused on Kiko happy he was allowed to use his nickname. "You got me later today for your weekly checkup hope you got something cool you've been working on to show me!" Eve flashed a grin as he turned waving as he did so. His first thing to do each morning was to make sure his sister was having a 'normal' morning. If she was having a communication... challenged morning he generally had to make sure she spent the day away from people who could set her off that and she tended to dislike being around others when she did not understand what they were talking about. Weaving around the tables Eve stopped a few times to talk to a patient and ask them how something was coming along. He was also stopped a few times by other patients would wanted to know when they would have him next or if today was there turn for there interview. Eve could see allot of them were nervous and it was understandable each week they would get interviewed on how they were doing and for some of them that meant having privileges removed or re-instated. Eve re-assured those he felt needed it smiled and kept going.

Egg was about to bite into her pancake when a voice broke her away. Looking up Egg met the inquirers gaze immediately after doing so Egg's mind went and found every date and time she and Rei had ever interacted or even seen each other. Egg smiled gently. "Of course..." Egg finally bit into her pancake all the while watching her brother as he looked over things. She was proud at how far he'd moved up sense first starting out in the asylum though she often thought he took his job a little too seriously... Or maybe he enjoyed it to much... She never quite understood how he could be so genuinely happy to live here and interact with people that supposedly could snap at who knows what moment.

Egg took another bite of her pancake humming as the taste of syrup filled her mouth. "So what do you plan to do today Rei? I was thinking of spending the day in the music room playing... But maybe I'll go down to the aquarium place for some inspiration..." Egg smiled at the thought of fish darting among the ruins of what had once been her home. Course it wasn't much of a home now a days if anything Egg just wanted out of here more each passing year not that she would let Rei know... Rei was probably one of the youngest with Egg being 17 and Rei being 15 she did not want Rei getting depressed or anything. Taking another bite of her pancakes Egg watched as her brother finished his meal and began doing his morning routine.

Kiko Narami

Upon hearing from Even that he'd have him for his weekly inspection brought a grin to Kiko's face. He wasn't joking when he said that he was his favorite nurse. He was eager to show the other male his new device. A long time ago when he told Even that he was really good with technology and other devices, he'd let him tinker with a broken remote. Even though it wasn't exactly technological (since it was now broken), he enjoyed playing with it and figuring out. Currently, he'd been working on the Riemann hypothesis. Something that had yet to be proven, and which Tick intended of solving. And he was almost close too!

Kiko quickly finished his meal, avoiding looking at C the Meanie and Ren, and dumped his tray. But of course, his luck couldn't hold up and he tripped over the leg of a table landing flat on his face... He lay there for awhile in pain before actually saying something, "Ow..."

His other pants. Not bad. Of course he could have made that same joke before, and C just forgot. Which would really just put a damper on everything, but then again, C wasn't sure he would be able to stay civil if he heard the same bloody joke every morning. Oh well, he would just have to trust in his own innate creativity that he was able to come up with new jokes every morning even if he did not remember making them before.

"No that was me. Crazy goes great with pancakes." C nodded at that as if it made perfect sense. "Seems legitimate to me." C said. C glanced at Red's pancakes and grimaced a little; he was not fond of pancakes. They were... well, they were just not his cup o' tea; he was much fonder of waffles. Pancakes were what people made when they couldn't afford a waffle iron.

C waved his left hand, that still clutched the cigarette, at the nurse-mans comment, "I am always nice." C said dismissively, heaven forbid the crazies make jokes about each other. Its okay to wear one's underwear on one's head and write about hanging puppies, but the second someone made a joke at another persons expense; the world came to an end. C did not understand why he said such was even bad in the first place. It was true. Those two guys were the crazier of the bunch, and that was an award all in itself. Maybe C should get his hand on a large trophy that said, 'Congrats on being the most fucked up guys here!' Hip hip hooray! Hooray for the 'special' little boys and girls of their 'special' little asylum.

C took another long drag from the cigarette, and nearly choked when the blond nurse whose 'name tag' he had been checking out popped up to say hi. It wasn't like he was frightened or nervous of her appearance, more so that he had been so lost in thought that her popping up surprised him. On the contrary to most of the weirdos in the 'fine' asylum, C never had trouble communicating... It just happened that he had to go over the introductory phase of the conversation more then most.

C regained his composure and looked the blond nurse over before flashing a large, and extremely fake, smile, "Hello Ms." He said pausing to look at her 'name tag' once more, "Thompson."

He offered his right hand, "I am C, but please call me Mista C." He said with a wink. Did he really expect anything to work? Hell no. Might as well flirt in an extremely obvious and obnoxious way that way it was more enjoyable. Anyone that would consider an 'inmate' at an Asylum for the people who fell down the stairs one too many times as a 'prospect' was even crazier then them. Well, crazier then all of them save for the earlier mentioned trophy winners.

C turned his head sharply at the sound of something large impacting the tile, and spotted Super Crazy #1 laying there. "Meh." C said as he took a drag from his cigarette with his right hand still extended to Alice, "Way too easy." C said and dismissed it. There was no fun in making fun of something that was so blatantly easy. Where was the challenge in that?

Oliver didn't really get a response so he just kept eating after he snapped out of his daze. He looked over and saw two girls waving at him. He wasn't sure why they were waving, nor did he know who they were. 'Am i just popular today or what...' He thought. Oliver waved back at them, managing to actually smile. Suddenly there was a thud. Oliver flinched, he wasn't fond of sudden loud noises. he looked over and saw a young man facedown on the floor and raised an eyebrow. It wasn't the first time he'd seen a patient face plant. He watched while two of the nurses, one he knew and one he had just seen around, help the man up. He assumed the man was fine and went back to minding his own business, and fiddling with his iPod once more.

Oliver started playing some game similar to 'papi jump', which was basically just a little face jumping on platforms. After losing four times he turned it off and got up to empty his tray. He walked past he two girls who waved, glancing at them. He threw what was remaining of his breakfast away and put his tray in correct place, then returned to his seat by the window. He took out his pocket notebook and mechanical pencil and began drawing the entire scene in the cafeteria, it only took a few minutes and he was done. Bored, Oliver rested his head on the table and sighed to himself.

Ren frowned as Alice seemed to ignore his good morning. Not because he actually cared about the response, but because it was rude to ignore people. Something that nurses never did. He almost liked it. She wasn't looking at him with those pity filled eyes that wanted to know what could possibly be wrong with him to land him in here. His normal smirk appeared on his face as Kiko tripped, brightening his mood a little. The frown returned when he saw that Kiko was okay.

Ignoring the conversations around himself, as they didn't have anything to do with him, he let his mind wander a little. He wondered what nurse he would be paired up with for his session. He always hated them so much. It was just that paticular nurse reading whatever story he had created. Occasionally asking him what he meant, when his descriptions got a little over the top. They never actually talked to him. As if his stories were all he needed and his 'problem' would fix itself. Well they would be in for a surprise this time. The story he was working on was a fantasy one. Of course there was a war going on, but it was more focused on the actual characters and the reasons BEHIND the fighting. He had even drawn the main characters in the front of the book, something he never did. Ren was hoping this sudden change would make the nurse actually talk to him.

He decided now he would insert himself in the conversation, making sure not to interrupt anyone. "Ms. Alice do you know which nurse I'm paired up with today?" He thought he would add the miss to the beginning to maybe get her attention this time.

Alice let go of Kiko once Eve came around to make sure he was okay. She stood straight up and looked down at Kiko, who was now sitting up on the floor. 'Is he just going to sit there....? I should atleast try to help him stand up...no....he might attack me if I do that' She thought as she looked up at Eve. "Always vigilant Alice... Remind me to promote you or something sometime soon..." He said. Alice smiled and waved him off with her hand slightly, "No...I'm just doing my job, sir." She replied back. She doesn't feel like getting promoted would make her job any easier. Probably harder, in fact. She just thought being promoted was where you just become more popular....Eh. She never was the person to really be at the top of the food chain.

"My head hurts..." She was pulled out of her daze when she heard a mutter from the boy. "Well..." She mumbled as she scratched the back of her head, "You did just face plant into the ground, so..." She said with a soft laugh. She wasn't trying to be mean though...She was 'Stating a Fact' as she always said it. "Do you want to try ad stand up? Or..." She asked.

"Ms. Alice do you know which nurse I'm paired up with today?" She spun around at the question, only to find Ren. She doesn't remember if she has worked with him before....but she knew his name. She blinked a few times while looking up at him, "Well, hmm..." She mumbled out as she thought. Damn, she was in such a hurry this morning she only got to take a short glance at the charts before she hurried off. The last time she forgot who she was paired with one morning, she just waited until everyone went with their nurses and the last patient there was hers. Isn't the way every nurse should act but...she thought it was a smart idea. Though, she would never tell anyone she forgot. That would be embarressing.

She thought for a few moments until the lightbulb lit up above her head, "Ah." She said as she remembered, "You're with....me." She managed to squeak out. She was 99.9% sure she saw his name beside her name on the charts this morning. She knew most patients here didn't like her either, so she always hated telling the patients she thought 'hated' her was paired up her for the day. Maybe she's too cheerful and caring. But she was always taught that you need to act "polite" around patients. She has always hated that rule but she goes with it anyway. It kinda just stuck with her over the years.

Kiko Narami

Kiko shook his head viciously. "No! They're all staring at me!? If I stand it'll be worse!" Kiko said, his voice growing louder with every syllable. He didn't like that Alice was treating him like a child. He knew he'd just faceplanted, she did not need to tell it to him.

He heard Ren's voice and shuffled nervously. "Why's he here...?" He said, his voice going back to a faint whisper as if he were trying to disappear. "Eve... Why is he here?" Kiko asked, trying to get a response out of the man."

"Ms. Alice do you know which nurse I'm paired up with today?" C closed his eyes in a grimace. Aw, they had to do that again. How he hated it. It wasn't that C was against attention; it was a different matter when the attention was because you were a lab rat they wanted to poke and prod. 'Hey, whatcha painting?', 'Why are you painting it?', 'What does it mean to you?', 'How are you feeling today?', it was enough to drive a man crazy. Not as crazy as the two super loonies, but pretty close. Could he just paint because he felt like it? Couldn't that painting just be there cause he thought, 'You know what would look awesome..'. C took another long drag from his cigarette taking it nearly down to the bud. Finished with the death stick, C stabbed it into his gravy to put out the smoldering tip.

C looked down at Crazy and noticed he was still there. For the first time in a long time, C thought back to an old cartoon he once watched as a child. All he needed was a red ball, and he could throw it at the collar-wearing crazy and say, 'Magikarp, I chose you!' Maybe if C was really lucky, he could get crazy to do his 'special' move and have him wiggle around a little, but C doubted the crazy had his sense of humor or quick wit to catch on to the joke in time.

"No! They're all staring at me!? If I stand it'll be worse!" C shook his head, "Yes, and laying in the middle of the floor yelling is such a better way to avoid attention." C stood and picked up his tray, "Your intelligence and sense of logic are leagues above mine, apparently." He said with a sigh of 'defeat' and turned on his heel to dump the tray and place it neatly on the rest of the dirty trays.

"Well, if anyone needs me; I shall be in my room." C said making his way to the door. He was doing it for more then just wanting to leave the melodrama as he gave it a few minutes before Crazy charged up his 'ki' and went Super Crazy. Maybe he would get blond hair? Wouldn't that be hilarious, but C had his fill of crazy already and really didn't want to see the guy get taken out back and put down like Ol' Yeller.

If his luck held out, no one would need him. Taking his leave of the cafeteria, C headed towards the safety of his room to finish his painting just encase he forgot it before he finished.

Even Blackadder

Eve was not the best at dealing with sensitive situations, this inability to act like a rational person only deteriorated faster when people seemed desperate or upset. Eve ignored C and Ren but re-assured Kiko that they were paying attention to Alice and that he would not let them hurt or stare at him. Turning his head sharply Eve's eyes narrowed to dangerous green slits immediately many of the eyes watching them that were seated at tables snapped away, everyone knew Eve was rather protective of his patients and his sister but there was still little he could do about C and Ren luckily Alice's feminine qualities would probably distract the rather rude male patients from bugging Kiko.

Eve suppressed an annoyed growl at C's antiques in favor of squatting down to block anyone's view of Kiko. Now facing the other male dead on Eve's face softened into a smile. "Don't worry no one will stare at you so long as I'm around Tick... Now come on why don't we get out of here and leave these people to stare at there eggs as they should be doing, instead of ogling my patient." Eve's smile grew a bit wider as he gently offered his hand out to Kiko but did not force it upon his patient it was and always would be Kiko's choice, or it would be until someone tried to hurt the black haired patient because in that case Eve would just pick him up and carry him to the nurses office. There was also the case of Kiko snapping but even then Eve preferred to try reason before physical force. Not to say he had not done it before, Eve had several times had to pick up his sister and carry her away from a situation forcibly but really reasoning was so much easier with less guilt afterwords.

Egglantine Blackadder

Egg smiled gently. "I know it is... I remember the fuss you made during your first birthday here... I personally don't celebrate mine but... My brother does. I guess because I remember everything I find it boring to celebrate another." Egg smiled. "Also your birthday is a good excuse to write another song... I've been getting lazy lately and that simply will not do." Egg gave a wider smile glancing once and awhile at her brother. She wasn't one to stare because she knew it was rude but she was always worried when it came to her brother... Then again he seemed to handle his patients all very well and with that strange patience she never understood. After she deemed he had the situation under control she returned her gaze to Rei.

Alice looked over at Eve and Kiko and saw they were having a little "talk". Alice didn't want to get in that "zone" so she decided she'd let it be. Hopefully Kiko didn't break his nose or anything. That stuff's not pleasant to look at and it hurts, too. She can hardly blame Kiko for "not being careful" while walking in the cafeteria. Alice did take a meeting with the ground too, after all.

"Well, if anyone needs me; I shall be in my room." C said before walking off. 'Better run while you can.' Alice said in her head. She had to admit, if she were in the patients shoes, she would hate being questioned about every small little thing. That's why she tries to avoid questions at all times. She can tell when the patients don't want to answer questions...because they usually don't answer them. And as she heard in a...a...Dixie Chicks? She forgets what the band was called. But as she heard in a "Dixie Chicks" song, "Answers Only Make More Questions." And Alice has lived by that motto ever since. Although, since she was raised as a nurse to be polite, she sometimes gets panicked whenever something's wrong and starts asking a bucket load of questions....

"I'm ready whenever you are Ms. Alice. The faster we do this the faster we can be done." She heard Ren say. She nodded slightly and put her hand out in front of her, pointed towards the doors of the cafeteria. "Lead the way." She said. She was all ready to get on with today's plans. She stuffed herself up with eggs, and talked to some of the patients. She was ready to see some more wacko things. Her favourite.
