Callandra's assumption wasn't incorrect. There were still thousands of Terrans in the city that would have just walked away as soon as they saw the Tech Con label. Terrans had a hatred for the Aschen down to their very soul.

But Jack Mercer was a forgiving man. He was a Federation Terran and far stronger than Homelanders. The man opened his mouth to say something but shook his head and closed it instead. He stood up and grabbed a damp rag.

"I'm not anyone else," said Jack simply. He patted her forehead with the damp cloth gently. "It would have been wrong to leave you there, Aschen or not."

Wincing slightly, she could feel the nanites mend the last portion of her broken neck, this was signaled by the slight moving of her head.

"I'll... see too it you're adequately compensated for risking your life. Name your price I'll make sure you're paid." She said, staring back up into the ceiling.

"Someone needs to notify my supervisor, and the CPF so they can get an investigation rolling." She added, licking her dry, cracked lips in thirst.

"Thank you for saving me, i don't think money could ever repay you, but it's the best I can do."

Jack couldn't help to smile when she offered him money. He was the co-owner and operator of Daedalus Enterprises. The man had more money than he could spend in a hundred life times. Instead of boasting about his wealth, Jack just shook his head and set the cloth aside.

Jack filled a paper cup with water. "Also, I don't want or need your money. A name would be nice, though." Jack went back to the woman and put a straw into the cup. It must have been awful and itchy to be stuck in a full body cast.

"Water?" he offered.

"Callandra, Callandra Mc-- Henderson." She said, catching herself for a moment. "I'm... I'm a Senior Captain with Tech Con's RDA." She added.

"Water... please." She whispered.

"And a doctor who knows a thing or two about Aschen medicine and how to work immersion tanks."

Jack let her drink from the straw, as much as she needed. When Callandra was finished, he set down it down beside her table.

"I will see what I can do about medical help. I'll come back. I won't leave you here alone," said Jack. He knew what it was like laying in a hospital bed all alone while in agony. If he could help it he was going to stay with her through her recovery. He didn't want anyone to go through what he had.

"I will also see what I can do about contacting your people."

Callandra smiled in relief. "It's comforting knowing there's some half decent people out there." She said, taking a slow drink from the straw, and slightly moving to get comfortable.

"This cast is damn itchy... I'm starting to get the feeling back in my legs, and the pain's starting to die down. How do you Terrans do it? Back home, an accident like this meant a night in the immersion tank and we were good as new." She asked, relaxing some in the bed.

"Shouldn't be hard to contact them, if they're not already aware of what happened."

"I'm not..." Jack started. He paused to think about how he could explain it. "I'm a Federation Terran. I'm not from this planet. I am visiting here from somewhere else. This is the Homeworld but we Federation Terrans don't like it here. Too much death and chaos."

"So our medicine out there is far more effective since we were able to focus on new technology instead of wars, invasions, and God knows what else that happens on this damned planet," said Jack. He dug out his cell phone and swiped to unlock it.

"So, who do I call? Tech Con or maybe an ambassador?" Jack asked Callandra.

"Call my supervisor, Miles Hagan. His number is on my cell phone, unless it got vaporized in the accident." She said, struggling to move in her bodycast.

"Just call two-six-five, five-five-nine, one-nine-one-seven, zero zero nine one nine. It's Mr. Hagan's direct line, just let him know what happened and he'll delegate from there." She said.

"I really appreciate you helping me like this... I imagine being away from this cesspit has enlightened you. I respect that."

Jack dialed the numbers but didn't press send right away. He smiled at Callandra and said, "Federation Terrans are a little more open minded than people here. But, not all of us. There are still a lot of people that dislike and distrust the Aschen. You are the main reason we immigrated into UCON after all."

Jack pressed send and listened to the rings.

"Hello. This is Jack Mercer. I'm calling from Wing City Hospital, Mister Hagan. I'm calling for Callandra McHenderson. She's been in an accident. I was directed to call you." Jack moved toward Callandra as he spoke on the phone. There was a bamboo rod sitting on the counter. He picked it up and showed it to Callandra asking if she wanted him to help her with the itching.

The phone rang, there was a brief pause, and then it rang again.

"Hagan." The voice echoed on the other end, and there was silence as he listened and took down notes as to what happened.

"Do you have any details on the accident? What law enforcement agencies were involved? What hospital is she at currently? What kind of treatment has she had?" Hagan asked on the other line.

There was a crackling, a pause, and then another voice.

"This is Paramilitary Coordinator Valaj-Karesh, I'll be handling all issues concerning this accident. I'm letting you know this call is being recorded, and myself, and Mr. Hagan on the line." The second voice said.

"I'll need you to take a statement with our investigator, in addition to a statement with the Confederation Protection Force, is that okay?" He asked, as Cally beckoned Jack over to help with her itching.

Jack took the phone away from his ear for a second and covered the microphone. "This may take a minute or two," he said before he helped Callandra with her itching. He slipped the rod in between her skin and the cast as he spoke to whatever officials were on the line.

"The accident happened earlier this evening. Callandra was hit by a black SUV," Jack said. He gave them the partial plates of the vehicle. "A WCPD officer named Randin and I pulled her out of the wreckage before the truck blew. She's in the ICU at Wing City Hospital. And seeing as I'm not family, I'm not allowed into her records so I have no idea what medical treatment they've given her." Jack paused and looked down at Callandra.

"... but she's in a full body cast. You may want to transport an immersion tank if you can. She's specially requested one and I would appreciate it if you brought it too. She is not enjoying herself, sirs."

The voices on the other end conversed briefly in Anquietas, before Miles hung up, and the younger voice replied. "I'll notify her next of kin and see that she's transferred to a proper Tech Con facility." The Coordinator said, before he too hung up, disconnecting the line.

The woman breathed a sigh of relief as the pole caught the itchy spots, relieving her of the persistent itching that the cast had caused.

"If you want, i'll see that you are allowed to come with me to the Tech Con facility."

"Roger," was all that Jack said before he shoved his phone into his pocket.

"I would like that but before that I need to get back to my hotel. I desperately need a shower if you can't already tell by smell alone," Jack said to Callandra. He laughed and kept running the rod beneath her cast to keep her comfortable.

Jack didn't tell Callandra but he was also going to hire an investigator himself. He despised drunk drivers with every fiber of his body. Jack needed justice done too, for Callandra's sake and his own.

"So, do mind being called Cally? It suits you."

She shook her head as much as the cast and neckbrace would allow. "Not at all. I'll be here for awhile yet, takes time for the bureaucracy to work it's magic. Go get cleaned up and I'll see you at the Tech Con hospital. Hopefully by the time you get done, I should be out of the cast and at least be able to move a little bit." She added.

"I probably smell worse.. I look forward to seeing you there." She said with a soft smile. "And once again, thank you for everything."

"Not a problem," Jack said with a wink.

"I will be back as soon as I can. I promise. I will leave you my number in case you want something from the city or need to get into contact with me." He wrote down his number on a pad.

"See you soon, Cally," said Jack before he left to go take care of business.

On Jack's way out, a rather imposing blond haired individual was seen making his way down the hospital hallways. He was clad in a black Imperial Navy uniform, adorned with the various devices and patches of the Aschen Imperial Navy.

He moved towards Jack, moving to shoulder check the other man as he walked past.

"Out of my way, Terran." He barked, before turning into Cally's room, closing the door behind him.

"Hold up! Wait," Jack said as he saw Cally being carted down a hospital hallway. The man had bought a vase of cheesy flowers for the woman. Jack thought it would make Cally feel better. Hospitals were awful and at least the flowers were colorful.

"Are they taking you to Tech Con now?" asked Jack. He looked at Cally and then at the two guards with her. They didn't look too happy nor too friendly.
