[x] … Medical equipment. Ask Reisen to give you some.
-[X] Ask the ghost why she wanted to shag the doctor.
--[X] Point out that, because the ghost is in your body, if you shagged the doctor, the ghost would also be shagging her by proxy.
Medical equipment is important. According to Renko, Reisen's medical skills are based on medicines. If you want to complete her training, you should teach her “traditional” medicine. Of course, sickness are cured with medicines, but you can't cure wounds or broken bones with medicines.
For example, you remember when your buddy Keith fell from the sixth floor right on the principal's car. You just had to grab his shoulder, and pull hard. He screamed a while, but in the end, he was fixed.
Of course, when the principal learned who crushed his car, he was quite mad. And then, Keith went to the hospital.
You ask Reisen to give you basic stuff. Obviously, there's not enough equipment to do a proper operation, but it's going to be just a weekly visit, right? Like, visiting the local grandmother, watch how they are doing, and leave with some smiles and cheers, right?
”You'll be surprised to see how local grandmothers are still lively.” Oh, hey, Miss Ghost is speaking again!
”The name's Mima. Call me Lady Mima.” You'll do as she wants, even if her name is quite silly. ”WHAT?” Why is she mad? You just think her name is quite silly! You're not saying her naming sense sucks balls on the beach!
”SHUT UP!” Funny, you think about something. Earlier, Mima suggested to shag Reisen. You wonder why.
”What the hell are you saying? I never said anything like that!” She's denying the obvious. Unlike her, you remember, in which she said “You plan to shag her, don't you?”
”I was talking about-” Yeah, about Reisen, you already know that. But why? Is she lesbian or something like that? Is she planning to attack Reisen in the bath, while her long and smooth hair are free, while her body is still wet from the bath, and while she's of course naked? Is she planning to wildly attack Reisen, tearing off her clothes, before pouring nutella all over her naked body, and softly, gently, licking every part of her body?
”FOR AMATERASU'S SAKE, NO!” Really? When why was she asking him to shag Reisen? Could it be... that she planned to shag Reisen by proxy? Good lord, that's clever! Eeeh, you mean disgusting. GOOD LORD, THAT'S DISGUSTING!
Hey, is she still here? She's not answering. Maybe she left? Bah, whatever.
You're now following Reisen, following her very closely. A little too closely, maybe. It's … because you want to be sure you won't get lost! After all, you're unarmed and stuff, so you shouldn't lose your only guide!
Well, you're not totally unarmed, since Reisen gave you a white box with a red cross on it, but you're pretty sure that you won't find weapons inside. Unless it contains a saw, or something like that. And even like that, after using shotgun and assault rifle, you know that a scalpel can't do shit against an experienced soldier. And all soldiers are experienced.
Bah, you shouldn't worry about something like that. Instead, you should talk with Reisen. Because, you were alone for a long time, so now, you should talk with lot of people! Or else your social bar will be empty, and you'll invent an imaginary friend.
IS MIMA AN IMAGINARY FRIEND? SHE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE, SHE'S NOT FOLLOWING LOGIC, AND SHE LIVES IN YOUR HEAD!
“Well, first, we'll visit the Scarlet Devil Mansion. The maid here was overworking, so we'll check her state, and see if she's better. It should be simple.”
Scarlet Devil, hey? That's a name to run away from really fast. And you're going in. You're really crazy.
Well, what do you know. It's really a mansion. And it's really scarlet. It looks like some kind of … well you don't know. But it's huge. More than huge, in fact, it's massive. You can see, what, 5 towers? 4 of them are all over the mansion, disposed like watchtower. The last one, the highest, is a clock tower.
It reminds you Big Ben. Strangely, for the first time since a while, you miss London. Sure, it was an awful place to live, but it has history. And wonderful buildings.
“There's this massive mansion. And there's a garden all around the mansion. And there's a wall all around the mansion. Right?”
Reisen's answer is hesitant. She doesn't understand where you're going.
You rudely point at her, while dramatically speaking:
“If there is so much security in this place, when why is the main door opened without any guardian?”
“Who said there's no guardian here?”
You jump, while screaming in a shameful and girly way.
Later, after being calmed down by Reisen, and after scolding the newcomer about why it's not nice to surprise people from behind, you decide to present yourself. Or maybe it's proper to let Reisen present you? “Proper”, this is a a funny word. “More proper”. Hey. What about “properer”?
“Doctor, she is Hong Meiling. She's the door guard, the gardener, and sometimes the mansion's caretaker.”
The newcomer bows down. No, wait. You're the newcomer here. Rephrase that. Hong Meiling bows down in respect. Yeah, that's better. And then, Reisen presents you to her:
“Meiling, here's … the Doctor. He'll work with me for a while.”
Now that you watch her closely, you can say that this woman -Hong Meiling- is quite impressive. First of all, she's very tall. Maybe as tall as one of those horned guys back then underground. Hell, you even think she's taller than you. Second, despite her feminine figure, she's got some kind of “I'm strong” aura. Kinda like, you're walking outside, and then you see 4 thugs trying to molest that girl, and you don't even move, because you understand that she's going to kick asses, without even knowing her. Yep, you definitely don't want to piss off THAT woman.
Said woman who is blinking several times, before asking in a soft voice:
“Doctor? You don't have a name?”
And, of course, she had to ask that damn question! What's so important about names anyway?! Quick, invent some kind of excuse!
“Well, I walked alone for several years, and there was nobody to call me by my name, so I kind of forgot it.”
“I see. You must had an interesting life, doctor.”
Smiling gently, Hong Meiling leaves you, and return to the garden.
You look at Reisen, and ask, while smiling in a demented way:
“Well, shall we continue?”
The mansion's inside is disgustingly impressive. “Disgustingly” as “full of gold thingies who looks expensive, especially for a poor scientist who kind of lived in a van even though he had a job in a laboratory and was teaching in an university”.
“YOU LIVED IN A VAN? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!” Hey, looks like the bunny molester is still here! You thought she left!
”I'm not going to left so easily” Too bad for her, because you remember that sickness you studied back in Texas. It was like rabies, but even nastier. Caused nosebleed, mental confusion, and, for some reason, horror. Contaminated people end up clawing their own throats in fear.
Arguing silently against the evil ghost with a silly name, you follow Reisen around. You decide to stop the argument after entering in a room.
In this room, there was a bed. And in this bed, there was a girl. A very cute girl, but you feel like you already saw her before. Or did you? No, forget it, it's probably nothing. You probably saw her sister or something like that.
Half-sleeping, the girl rises from her bed, trying to greet the two of you. Or the three of you, including the ghost with a silly name. Without even thinking about it, you walk to her, and you gently push her back in her bed. She's obviously not well. No need to be a doctor to know it. But you have to admit that she's strong-willed. To be able to move with this fever, she's not anyone. Hell, just by petting her head, you can feel she's really hot.
Wait, you're petting her head? What the hell is wrong with you?! Stop that right now, Reisen may be watching you!!
A quick glance relieves you. Reisen isn't looking, she put her bag on the floor, and she's taking out several bottles. Pill, syrup, tablets... Seriously, that's too much.
Ha! She's not calling you doctor! She must be focused on her current task, then.
“Who is this girl?”
Asking the obvious, hey? It's unusually clever from you.
“Let me check... Her name is Elanor Izayoi. She's the maid here. Take care of everything. Clean the mansion, prepare meals, in short, everything.”
You put your hand on Izayoi's forehead. Good, she's burning! But this is not a proper symptom.
Putting the white box you've been carrying on the ground, you take a thermometer, and place it in Izayoi's mouth. As your fingers are touching her lips, you can't help but wonder how it feels to kiss her. Yes, your mind is focused on her, as a patient, but, just for a second, you were wondering how she would be, as a woman. Her skin is a little too pale, but perfect overall, with tidy hair, despite the fact that she's laying in her bed. Her eyes are staring silently at you, analyzing you, detailing your face with precision, but with benevolence. She doesn't know you, but she knows you're trying to help her, and that's enough for now.
“Reisen? You told me it was just overworking?”
“Yes. Look like it got worse. Excuse me, doctor, but can you leave the room for a while? I will be using the stethoscope on her, and she doesn't know you, so...”
“I understand. Now, excuse me...”
It was a very nice way to say: “she'll be half-naked, so fuck off, you male in heat!”. Or maybe you're overthinking it. Whatever, you leave them alone, and you go in the corridor.
That was quite dangerous back then. Good thing you went from “fooling around” to “serious doctor is doing serious business”. But you can't stay like this.
You're crazy. That's what you think. Well, it's logical, isn't it? After all, you woke up in the middle of nowhere, you saw little girls eating corpses, and you walked alone during several years, without talking to anyone. It's only logical that you're crazy.
But you're a scientist. When you're facing a problem, your mind become clear. You analyze the trouble, you cut it in several part, and you find how to fix each part, in order to fix the whole problem. That's who you are. You are a scientist, a being of logic.
That's how you were, back in this room. Renko, Reisen, and even Mima. You forgot everything when you saw that sick girl. You forgot everything, except your reflexes.
“Don't overdo it” was the first reflex. You quickly put the girl back in bed.
“Heart malfunction” was the second. You watch her face. She was red.
“Temperature regulation” was the third. She was too hot. Too much blood in the face, causing the fever and the blush.
You slide against the door. You feel tired. You don't understand why. Maybe you should take a break.
You look around you. You're alone in the corridor, except for the girl pushing a trolley. Looking closely, she has wings. Yeah. Wings. Maybe you should give up and recognize that this world is no longer logic.
You need a break.
 Breath deeply, think about the past.
 Visit the mansion. Finding secret passage may relax you, you were quite good with puzzles back then.
 Sit on the floor, try to meditate. Think zen.
 SCREW THAT! THROW THE GIRL, PUSH THE TROLLEY, JUMP ON IT, AND SHOUT “AYAYAYAYAYAAAAAA!” LIKE A JACKASS!
Sometimes, insanity can be a defense against bad memories. It was used a lot with Flandre, if I'm right. A trauma is certainly enough to make someone crazy. Speaking about that, is there any difference between "crazy" and "insane"? Which one is worse?
