About seven years ago, the gang had ambushed him outside the hospital. With their recent release, Guppy has had some time to prepare. Part of him thought they would surely stick to their parole conditions, and leave him alone, rather than risk going back inside.

It became a ritual, checking the exits from the windows on the top floors. He'd had to let some of his department in on the problem, so that they could keep an eye out, and this had mostly been met with sympathy.

When he finally spotted the gang, he had to watch for a few moments to make sure they were definitely the right ones. But with the zoom on his camera, he identified Lee clearly before the man pulled up his hoodie.

He goes back towards his department to find a bar portal and get some help.

Since talking with Guppy, Charles has been in Milliways and today he's reading.

He senses Guppy's worry before he sees him and looks up, putting his book away, "Guppy."

"Right, time to make certain they don't do this again,"

He gives his book to a rat to put with Bar as he stands up and walks over to Guppy.

"Yes, I can and you can do this as well,"

Its still a dangerous plan but he trusts Guppy.

"I can. They'll be thinking about what they're going to use. Would you feel comfortable with me telling you telepathically?"

"They won't,"

That's easy enough to promise, he's good at making people forget he exists.

He closes his eyes and focuses on them, "No weapons."

Charles watches the scene and thinks to Guppy,

I see them and will get them. As long as you're thinking I can hear you.

The ambulance seems to be at the change of a shift and Charles keeps an eye on them. There's a door behind him on the stairs and the railings are meta. He can make some noise to get their attention or yell for them. The trick is to find the right moment that doesn't put Guppy into more danger.

Fran's here. That will make the situation more complicated but there's no time to think about that as he yells and uses his telepathy to focus their attention to the fight,

"Over here, help!"

When they glance his way, he'll shift their attention to Guppy and the gang so they don't recall who shouted only that someone did.

From above it all looks bad and Charles searches the surrounding area for any police.

When he finds a car, he tells them to turn the corner and come upon the fight. They should get there sooner than the ones called.

When the police arrive, Charles exhales and opens the door behind him.

He had noted where the hospital cafeteria was and heads there where he buys a tea and a bun. His money isn't right but the cashier just blinks and lets him pass through.

Once he's seated he thinks at Guppy, I'm in the cafeteria. Take whatever time you need.

Then from his pocket, he takes out the paper he had picked up earlier and starts on the crossword.

"That's where he belongs," Charles hugs Guppy since that was a painful fight to watch.

"Now don't do that again."

"Yes, I just wish there had been a safer way to accomplish it but it is done now. You're a brave man, Guppy and a lucky one."

"And you wouldn't want to worry him. If you'll just open a door for me, I'll leave you to rest."

balancingminds: (soft smile)

"Thank you,"

He follows with a smile as he watches Fran and Guppy and how they fit together.
