It’s raining, but at least the power’s up and it’s reasonably warm inside. I heard that our newest arrival was willing to sell the ambulance she came in. It cost me less than I planned and Monkeywrench gave me a good deal on turning my van into a much less conspicuous ambulance. The supplies will come in handy as well, of course. Especially since Liz hasn’t been able to get any drugs I would be willing to use, presenting me with a bag full of who knows what kind of pills.
And speaking of Liz, I’m not sure how much longer that will last. She’s good, there’s no question about that, but what use is the best nurse if she’s too drunk and high to stand up when I need her?
Anyway. Apart from Splash (Ambulance Girl), there has been one other new arrival – not here to stay, though. Blaster, a ganger, who seems to be Kerry’s latest boyfriend…after making the facts of life forcibly clear to another member of his gang (my first patient that night). Kerry did the same for Liz, who’s sometimes a bit too frank for her own good and who obviously didn’t listen to me when I told her not to use her shock hand when it’s wet. Two more patients, but they were only knocked out.
The bar fight later on was much more productive. Blaster handled himself well against one of our local trolls, so that should bring him at least some respect if he decides to stick around. No-one was seriously hurt, although it would have been nice if Liz had been in a condition to do more than giggle drunkenly at the patients (I threw her out).
Ah crap, the power’s out. I guess I’m going to bed and I’m hoping for a quiet night, if warm is too much to ask. But what else is new.
