The dr sighed slightly. As he returned the bird to his cage he walked back over to the table. Why was he feeling such pain this time, his other experiments. Erin always had been special even if he wasn't the easiest person to deal with. He would no longer need his helmet or entire suit but he would have the breathing tubes in his nostrils. Still it didn't seem like much his body remain frail even if it was better then it had been. There was also the psychological issues to consider as he had no idea how the process would affect Erin's brain. But it was something a small victory.

Miseri coughed into her sleeve, trying to muffle the sound. She'd ended up not taking her medicines earlier, for some reason the nurse who had been supposed to give them to her had never shown up. She knew she should go back to get it, but now she was at Erin's side, she didn't want to leave yet.

The dr handed her a small pill as her coughing grew worse. " chew on this a little it will abait your symptoms" with that he went back to compiling his notes and taking into account all that had happened so far.

Meanwhile Erin's hand slowly clasped around Miseris again and his breathing became deeper and more regulated. He tossed and turned slightly but still showed no signs of waking up. Then his lips moved ever so slightly and he mouthed the words "Myste i...." Ever so quietly just loud enough for her to hear.

Miseri took the pill, thanking the strange doctor, sighing softly in relief as the pain eased and she was able to breathe better. She smiled when she heard Erin's voice. "I'm right here, Erin." She squeezed his hand gently. "I love you..."

Erin could hear Miseris voice and he had a vague sense of his surroundings. It felt as though his past few days had been a weird nightmare. What had happened to him. It took all his strength just to open his eyes slightly. But when he did he saw Miseris kind and gentle features staring at him and felt the warmth of her hand on his. Even though he couldn't say anything and wasn't certain it wasn't all haut a dream it was a good feeling. A warm feeling friendly and inviting calling him
Home and into her arms once more.

Miseri fought back tears of joy when she saw his eyes open a bit. "Hey. Welcome back. I've got so much to tell you."

Erin could hear her voice and fought to wake up more. He was gaining consciousness but where on earth was he? And so much to tell him? How long had he been gone for? What was going going........he could feel sleep calling him again.

The dr walked over to the two and put a hand on Miseris shoulder. "He's about ready to wake up give him another hour or so. Come on Lets get you something to drink" the dr then walked out a little and began to gather the ingredients to make tea.

Miseri nodded to the doctor and reached over to gently caress Erin's forehead. "It's ok... I'll still be here when you wake up, so you can go ahead and rest a bit longer..." She waited until he was sleeping again, then went and peered over the doctor's shoulder. "What kind of tea is that?"

"Red hibiscus bud" he said and allowed it to steep and brew. "It's a little strong but it has a good flavor." He set down a makeshift plate and waited for the tea to finish brewing. " he won't need his helmet anymore and the suit can be adjusted as well. I've been working on his hand that hasn't proven as easy to adjust" the dr poured her tea and proceeded to tell Miseri Bout the contaminatiojn that had begun to spread through Erin's body as a side effect of his cybernetics. Their removal had aided in bettering his health but he still needed recovery.

Miseri nodded in understanding. "I had a problem with that before, when one of the previous synthetic heart implants they'd tried ended up starting to break down." She bit her lip. "They're trying to design one that won't get destroyed by my own body the way my heart has been, but so far, they haven't had much luck..."

"Really......." The dr replied. He let the conversation drift off from there and his mind started to go to work. Why was this girls heart being destroyed? What role would a body play in rejecting the heart? Unless it wasn't all biological hmmm perhaps a faux heart design chamber with the necromious....maybe but it would need to many replacement valves shots could be injected though to the heart. Tht would place too much strain on the body though Erin's heart had been a different matter it wasn't too badly corroded it was his lungs.....wait that was it a secondary link pump to the central chamber no not the chamber to the stream directly after the body had accepted......yes yes indeed that could work bit powder would be too slow dam.....the need for more liquid stability....

Miseri nodded. "Yeah. It's a rare genetic defect. My body is literally eating my own heart. Unfortunately, it's done the same to every implant they've tried so far." Seeing he was deep in thought, she reached over and finished making the tea for him. "The medicine they have me taking slows down the destruction, but it can't stop it completely."

"Mmmhmmmm" the dr said maybe a mixture of the medicine mixed with the necrmious. " please tell me more about this I might be able to think of something who is your dr by the by?" He walked away for a little while and ordered a guard to bring trays of food for the two of them. It might not be much but he could at least try to mend a little of the symptoms she was having.

"There's Dr. Lasonis, the surgeon, and there's Nurse Lynne, who's in charge of my general health. Lately, though, she was put in charge of one of the other programs after the previous person in charge of it was killed, so one of the other nurses has been taking over for her while she's busy." She brought him a cup of tea. "I've had this condition since I was little, although it wasn't anywhere near this bad until I hit puberty."

"Hmmmmm" the dr sat deep in thought. A pre existing condition that grew worse once her body started to grow. Activated by bodily hormones....yes yes that could be it....hmmm...he was no closer to solving the problem then he was when he started. But it was possible if he could reverse necrosis maybe or channel it to make it target the dangerous cells.

As the dr rambled on erin dreamed. He dreamed for the first time in countless days, Miseris. He saw her face and felt her touch agian. That warm gentle glow and the soft beating heart. As the dream ended he could hear voices and noticed the lights in the room. It still blurred his vision for awhile but as he woke he still couldn't move much. But his mind was coming back online.
