Errandboy "Gerard" at the doctors
[22:23] Gera Heliosense: Excuse me, milady?
[22:23] Doctor: good day boy
[22:23] Gera Heliosense: I am looking for the doctors house
[22:24] Doctor smiles "well you've found the doctor herself. what can i do for you?"
[22:24] Gera Heliosense: oh...you are the doctor? "He" comes closer, and bows slightly.
[22:25] Gera Heliosense: Lady Redrose sends me
[22:25] Doctor: ah, you are the new boy then?
[22:25] Doctor bites her lip "are you the one..... well there are two. are you the gardner?
[22:25] Gera Heliosense: yes milady
[22:25] Gera Heliosense: no uhm I am the errand boy
[22:26] Doctor: ah, so you are the physical exam.
[22:26] Gera Heliosense: yes....it won't hurt will it?
[22:26] Doctor sighs and looks a bit relieved "thank god, i thought i was going to have to have a hard talk with you."
[22:26] Doctor: no it wont hurt at all. now come along
[22:28] Doctor: first things first boy. how long have you been aboard ship/
[22:28] Gera Heliosense: I've been on a ship for 8 months
[22:29] Gera Heliosense looks around with big eyes
[22:29] Doctor: open your mouth
[22:30] Gera Heliosense takes "his" hat off and opens up wide
[22:31] Doctor looks in, then unceremoniously sticks her thumb into your mouth, testing for looseness in your teeth. she hmphs "i dont like that." she pulls back "youll need to eat more fresh fruit. oranges and limes especially, and anything with onions in it"
[22:32] Gera Heliosense: I will try to do that milady. Now that I work for Madame, I will get plenty of fruit
[22:33] Doctor nods, then looks around your eyes for signs of jaundice. she presses her fingers along your throat, looking for your lymph nodes "have you had any illness recently? fever or stomach issues?"
[22:35] Gera Heliosense: No milady, nothing. "His" dark eyes dance over her face , he swallows a few times, he holds his hands close to his body
[22:35] Doctor: lift your arm
[22:35] Gera Heliosense: She does so
[22:36] Doctor reaches under, looking for the nodes there, and satisfied they arent swollen slips her hand to your wrist "how old are you boy?" she presses two fingers to feel your pulse and starts to count
[22:37] Gera Heliosense clears his voice and answers with a husky voice"I am 18...going on 19 , milady
[22:38] Gera Heliosense watches while she takes the pulse
[22:38] Doctor smiles a bit "really? you seem a bit smooth cheeked for that" she laughs and lets go of your wrist "bow your head i need to check your hair
[22:38] Gera Heliosense smiles slightly embarrassed , then bows his head down
[22:40] Doctor starts coming through your hair, looking for an infestation of lice "do you have any sores or lesions?"
[22:41] Gera Heliosense: Oh no...nothing, milady.....I swear....and...and i always wash myself
[22:41] Doctor: immm hmmm well i need to see, so the breeches come off
[22:42] Gera Heliosense: uhm...my breeches? "He" stands there a bit dumbfounded
[22:42] Doctor: yes boy your breeches. i need to check your hair for lice
[22:43] Gera Heliosense: m...my...hair? you mean the hair...down...between...my legs?
[22:43] Doctor: yes, if you have any
[22:43] Doctor: you seem to be a little late developing
[22:44] Gera Heliosense swallows hard"But..but you are a lady...you...you can't..I mean...I swear..I've got no lice and I've always washed
[22:44] Doctor: washing hasnt a thing to do with it
[22:44] Gera Heliosense backs off slightly
[22:45] Doctor smiles and puts her hand on your arm "i assure you lad, i couldnt be less interested in what you have between your legs, save for the fact that i need to check you for lice, and lesions."
[22:47] Gera Heliosense goes pale and trembles slightly"I ..I feel so faint suddenly...I think I am coming down with the fever after all...."He" holds his shaking hand out"Look...maybe you can give me a medicine
[22:48] Doctor: a fever?
[22:49] Doctor presses her hand to your forehead, then again takes your wrist. she feels nothing and looks at you, then smiles softly "i understand you are modest"
[22:50] Gera Heliosense blushes now and nods:"Please milady...you are so fair...I..I simply can't drop my breeches in front of you"
[22:50] Doctor smiles and looks you in the eye "now, gerald is it?"
[22:52] Gera Heliosense: uhm..Gerard...yes milady?
[22:53] Doctor: you do know what kind of house you are moving into?
[22:53] Gera Heliosense: uhm...yes milady...it a..well a pleasure house where the ladies entertain the gentlemen
[22:54] Doctor: and so you understand that in these places you will see some things that a fine young boy like yourself might not be ready for don't you?
[22:55] Gera Heliosense casts his eyes down and murmurs" well yes...but I...I do know about such things...the men on the ship talked about it all the time"
[22:55] Doctor: i'm rather sure they did
[22:56] Gera Heliosense nods
[22:56] Doctor: men of the lower classes can be so beastly. now gerard... i think i understand your problem...
[22:56] Gera Heliosense: You do? "His" face lightens up
[22:57] Doctor: you dont want anyone to see you in a state of undress.... but you understand my problem. i cant let you go to lady mystery's house and perhaps spread some sort of infestation
[22:58] Gera Heliosense: oh but I assure you...I am clean and I've got no nasty illnesses....I swear by god and sweet Jesus
[22:58] Doctor: hmmmm men often swear by god.
[22:59] Gera Heliosense: Please milady..." His dark eyes, which are as soft as that of a doe , plead with her
[22:59] Doctor: i'm going to offer you a bit of a compromise gerard. go behind the screen and you will find soap, water and a razor. tug your breeches down, shave off every last hair and bring it all out to me.
[23:01] Gera Heliosense swallows and nods quickly"Yes...yes I will do that" With that he moves behind the screen. One hears the rustling of clothes and for a while its quiet. Then he comes out again holding a bunch of dark hairs in his fist
[23:02] Doctor looks over the hairs, searching for signs of lice "very good gerard. now.... a few more matters." she looks at you with her clear blue eyes then looks away "what color are my eyes?"
[23:03] Gera Heliosense smiles "As blue as the sky on a clear day, milady
[23:03] Doctor smiles "and you know that because this whole time as we spoke you were looking straight into them were you not?"
[23:04] Gera Heliosense blushes a little"I...I think so ...yes"
Doctor: i know so
Doctor: a man would not have
[23:04] Doctor: you are smaller than i am, which is a wonder. i thought you might be perhaps 12 but you are not
[23:05] Doctor: your hands are too fine and your hips slightly too broad
[23:05] Gera Heliosense swallows hard"I..I beg your pardon?"
[23:05] Doctor: the women at the whorehouse might notice this
[23:05] Doctor: always spare them a glance
[23:06] Gera Heliosense remains quiet and watches her carefully, biting "his" lip.
[23:07] Doctor: if you don't look at the girls they will decide you are a buggerer, and they might sell your arse to sailors, so... if you value the virtue of your buttocks, practice. talk to me, and very occasionally drop your eyes .... quickly as if you think you can get away with it"
[23:10] Gera Heliosense gasps and nods quickly. She looks into her blue eyes , then quickly glances down over her fine body, lingering over her cleevage for a moment
[23:10] Doctor: better
[23:10] Gera Heliosense: "yes milday"
[23:10] Gera Heliosense: Still has red cheeks and looks a bit flustered
[23:11] Doctor: you'd do well to keep yourself shaved down there. you never know what passing sailors might bring in and spread to the girls. ships are filthy places
[23:11] Gera Heliosense: "yes milday, I will do that...I will shave and wash"
[23:11] Doctor: eventually, one of them is going to get it into her head to take your virtue. be prepared for that
[23:12] Gera Heliosense bites his lips and nods" oh but...I ...uhm...yes milady
[23:13] Doctor: now before i send you on your way with a clean bill of health, is there anything you wish to ask of me?
[23:14] Gera Heliosense ponders on her question. She tries to read the doctors face to see if she was found out but finds nothing but a friendly open face. "no milady, nothing"!
[23:16] Doctor smiles "now remember gerard...anything you ever ask me about is a sacred trust. i am your doctor." she squeezes your arm affectionately "so don't be afraid to talk to me if you have any health concerns." she gives you a smile
[23:18] Gera Heliosense smiles back truly grateful and he bows slightly takes her hand and brushes his lips over her knuckles briefly" Thank you so much , I will bear that in mind, milady"
[23:19] Doctor grins "such manners. quite a young gentleman. i will let my friend Mystery know you are ever so well mannered."
