The infirmary has had one section partitioned off for a delicate procedure. It's always tricky to get an anaesthetist, so Guppy has brought Atton along to help.

He's spent a fair amount of time over the last few days getting to grips with the bronchoscope, but at least if he nicks anything he's got a healer on hand...

He smiles in welcome at Charles when he arrives.

"Do you know one another?" he asks Atton and Charles.

"I've seen you around, but no, we've never met.

"Vic Sage, or Charles Victor Szasz, but Charlie will do." He extends his hand.

"Hi," Atton says, shaking his hand. "I'm Atton."

"That's good. I never enjoy being drugged." Even when he can't remember being drugged, like he was near the end, strung out on morphine.

"Just tell me when and whether you want him asleep or just numb," Atton says to Guppy.

"Please, it's just Charlie. I never do anything formal." He forces a smile, not nervous about the procedure, trying to be calm about the results. "Whenever you are ready, Doc."

Atton reaches over and draws his hand over Charlie's face, concentrating. It's not a difficult thing to induce sleep, really, and the tiredness gathers only a few seconds before sleep sets in.

Charlie is totally out. When he wakes up, he will be disappointed that he didn't reach any higher level of consciousness while under.

Atton isn't exactly subtle about waking Charlie up. It's the kind of jolt that would generally accompany a dream about suddenly falling.

Charlie wakes with a start. And quickly composes himself. All those years of meditation have their uses.

"That was abrupt. Everything okay?" He immediately notes that he feels just a bit drowsy.

"Will my insurance cover it?" He feels a bit tender, but he's been through a lot worse.

"That's...good." A vast relief. "I can have a couple of weeks to think about it?"

"Still, I want to talk to friends about it." And make sure they are around to help out.

"Doctor Sandhu, I retired from heroics some time ago.

"And the last time I got plastered was..." Pause. "I can't remember last time. So don't worry."

"Thanks.

"Thanks for everything." And with that Charlie lies back to snooze.
