When an eye gets obsolete

Post by Bruno Winters » 2008-06-20 02:07

Bruno was making his way to Med Com for his scheduled eye exam ever since he got the replacement eye put in. This time he decided the trip was not going to be the everyday trip to Med Com. He decided it was time to upgrade the prosthetic eye and at least make it worth his while for the trip. He was going to go for the top of the line model available to him which happened to be the Cybernetic Eye Level III. Of course he was just about to shell out 25,000 credits for it, but he felt that his personal well being and the fact that he could get a heads up display, image enhancement processor, low-light enhancer, ultraviolet, infrared, flash suppressor, x10 zoom, and selectable targeting reticule.

Bruno was very thoughtful about selecting this specific eye since he hardly wore a constricting helmet to cover his entire head. He just wore enough to cover the top of his head and a portion of the sides ever since he became a Spec Ops soldier and got to shed that obviously noticeable white storm trooper armor. Bruno just reached the door to Med Com gave it a knock and walked in to see one of the few doctors that could perform the procedure. He then walked up to the doctor and handed her his 25,000 credits and said, "I'd like to skip beating around the bush and get straight to implanting my Cybernetic Eye Level III please." Then with that he quickly lied down on the nearest reclined repulsor chair and awaited the procedure to begin.

Ruby had been sitting in her office for the past hour; the workload was so intense that what had been planned out as a simple smoke break had turned into a solid hour of puffing away on three cigarettes and tearing through a veritable mountain of paperwork. Not surprisingly, the room was awash in the stench of cigarette butts, and the foul odor had managed to impress itself on her body and her clothing. The former, she could rectify with a very quick spin through the refresher attached to the office...specifically, just for that very purpose. As for the stink on her clothes...that would take another matter, for which she was grateful to have remembered to pack a change of clothes, just on the off chance they were necessary.

Sighing to herself, she tossed the smelly uniform into the clothes-bin inside the refresher, stepped in for a very quick shower, and toweled off, wrapping her otherwise-naked flesh under the cloth as she stepped out into the main area of her office to find the spare clothing she'd brought with her.

Another sigh loosed itself from her lips as she stared at the choices available to her. On the left, she had a shirt that was intentionally kept in tatters, and a skirt that easily ran far higher up her legs than was within regulation. The shoes that went with that outfit were open-toed, with heels that extended one and a half inches to the ground and an ankle strap that really served no purpose other than decoration. In the right-hand compartment, she found shin-high boots with four-inch heels, a pair of black thigh-high stockings, black jeans with a gray t-shirt, and a black leather jacket. At least it's regulation, she thought to herself, shaking her head in frustration as she grabbed the clothing and quickly put it on. It took significant effort to even get part of her ID badge to fit over the coat's upper pocket, forcing her to just jam it in, leaving it unseen; such was just yet another failure in a clear wardrobe malfunction. "Next time, Ruby," she scolded herself under her breath, "bring a spare uniform...and an extra change of underwear."

The mad rush, of course, was because of the patient waiting for her, just outside. She was, of course, just barely prepared to deal with him; the only reason she had bothered to even stop her paperwork and get remotely ready was that he had booked an appointment ahead of time to deal with the issue. Her footsteps clicking in an obviously-hurried rhythm, Ruby quickly made her way to the waiting room, the door barely starting to open before she got to it. Perhaps it was good fortune for her that her lipstick, a more noticeable giveaway of her identity, had washed away in the shower. "Major Winters," she began, smiling just a little, "the doctor will see you now."

Bruno viewed Dr. Terix and was shocked at her choice of apperal for the operation. Next all he heard was, "Major Winters," she began, smiling just a little, "the doctor will see you now." With that he walked in to the operation room and plopped himself down in another repulsor bed and awaited the operation to begin. He was ready to upgrade. Well, he had been for a while, but he didn't have the credits until now. So he just laid there and awaited the "fun" to begin.

"You, Mr. Winters, need to learn to play dumb once in a while." Ruby's voice was somewhat harder than usual, her tone going from that of a pleasant, cheerful doctor to a cold, near-condescending bitch. The speed of her walk seemed to increase slightly, the clicking of her heeled boots resounding with both more frequency and volume. Her lips curled into a snarl, which the major fortunately couldn't see...not that he had the authority to do anything about it. Or the balls to back up any effort! she thought to herself with an overly-vigorous shake of her head. "Operating room is down the hall on your left; I'll scrub in and be with you shortly."

Without waiting for a reply, Ruby immediately grabbed the nearest aide, shoved her towards the major, and pointed both of them in the direction of the nearest open O.R. While they both headed off in that direction, the doctor made her way in a beeline towards the changing room down the hall. It would take a few minutes, but she'd be ready to go in and take care of this elective surgery almost as soon as the patient was strapped down on the work table.

Bruno got up from the repulsor bed which seemed like the millionth time to him and moved down the hall with the rather ravishing nurse. He then made his way into the room, which seemed like an eternity of a walk to and laid down on hopefully the last bed he'd be laying in besides the post op bed. Well that is if he was no immursed in bacta to do the job alot faster than natural recovery time. Bruno then stared off into the ceiling and tried to pass time without flirting with the nurse, god forbid he crossed any boundaries presurgery and they both decided to kill him midoperation and say it was an accident.

Once she was finished scrubbing in, Ruby made her way into the supply room just next to the room in which the surgery would take place. The eyes, of which one would play the most pivotal role in this procedure, were naturally very few in supply; such expensive hardware was largely kept in storage with a technician or two in another section of the medical lab. The laser-scalpel was docked, almost fully charged; with that, a supply of bacta salves and patches lay nearby, should any be necessary. Out of the sheer idea of it being more efficient to get the major out of her department all the faster, Ruby quickly snatched up a small salve and an applicator, along with one eye and the charged scalpel.

Within a few minutes of all of this, she was walking into the operating room, her eyes staring down coldly at the man on whom she'd have to perform the surgery. Perhaps she had felt some measure of interest in forming an emotional attachment with him; he had managed to ruin that, personally...not that she would have shown hints of it, anyway, what with the presence of a third party in the room.

"Prep the area around the eye," she said to the technician, her voice less than cheerful, "and I'll dig it out."

Bruno just laid there and watched them come closer towards him. He was sure he was going to be in a world of pain and conscious for it all. He just awaited Dr. Terix's arrival to replace the what he deemed now an obsolete eye. The wait felt as if an eternity had gone by, but he knew it would be worth the suffering and the wait at the end. Then just as he was about to relax and lose the stress of the wait the door burst open and in came Dr. Terix. He saw very few items in her hands, but it was a relatively quick and easy so to speak procedure versus some of the others you could ask for. All Bruno heard as words passed between them was, "Prep the area around the eye, and I'll dig it out." Bruno just laid back and let his mind drift to else where so as not to flinch or move during the procedure.
