=E2=80=9CFamily Comes First=E2=80=9D ((Outside Ballroom, Embassy)) Turner: :: not wanting to argue the point:: I know. I'm ready. ::The Boslic marine officer called for the transporters and, in the blink of an eye, she, Brodie and Turner materialised in the sickbay aboard the Thor.:: ::Brodie saw the children at the same time as Turner did. Taking advantage of their attention being focused solely on their mother he spun around and removed his blood-stained dress jacket, tossing it into the main office behind the desk where it would be out of sight.:: ::One of the nursing staff ran a swab along the cut on his brow. It was only superficial but wounds there always bled disproportionately. The children wouldn't understand that though and if he was to be the on= e comforting them it would be better done without a running head injury.:: Garth: :: hugging her waist:: I took care of Tyler and the girls, Mother. Are you okay? Turner: :: kissing his forehead:: I'm fine, son. Breeanna: :: sniffling, pointing to her leg:: Mommy gotta boo boo! Turner: I sure do, ::hugging the two-year-old:: but it's just a small one. ::Brodie knew that Turner had children, that much had been obvious from the first time he met her at her home. He hadn't me the full Turner cla= n before though. He remembered what it was like raising one child, granted he and his wife were both working exceptionally long hours in high pressure environments at the time but the same could be said of Rear Admiral Toni Turner.:: Vee: Mother, the twins are fine. I guess they are too young to know that anything is wrong. Turner: I think your guess is right. :: hugging her shoulders:: Vee... Garth, this is Counselor Brodie. He came with me to stay with you while I see the doctor. ::Brodie turned back from where he'd been standing and gave the chi= ldren a smile and a small wave as he approached.:: Nurse: Okay, children, I'm going to take your mother to her room so we can get her ready so Doctor Hendon can check her boo-boos. Counselor, :: pointing to a private room:: you can take them in there. It's a make-shift playroom we made for them. ::Hendon was here toothat was a plus...it meant he wasn't = likely to be put under additional strain at the Embassy..:: Brodie: Thanks. ::Turning to Turner.:: I'll keep things settled her= e while you get checked over? Turner: This shouldn't take long. Vee and Garth will help you with the little ones. Brodie: ::Smiling and glancing at Garth and Vee:: From what I've se= en so far they seem to have things well in hand already. Turner: I really appreciate you for doing this. ::He could tell she meant it and he could see the adrenaline debt already affecting his commanding officer. The surge caused by the explosion, the continued torrent as she worried about her children. Now she knew they were safe her body demanded the debt be paid in full. She didn't seem to= o badly injured. Personally his prescription would be =E2=80=98Go in there, cry you= r heart out for as long as you need, dry your eyes and then spend some time with your family.' He rather envied Borishe could just give peo= ple drugs. He would need to watch Turner carefully over the next few days to see how it was affecting herthat new officer too.:: Brodie: That's okaygo on. Sooner you're checked ou= t the sooner you can be back with them. ::Brodie watched as the Admiral was led away before turning his attention to the children.:: Brodie: oO Here we go Oo ::He surveyed the faces ahead of him kneeling down to be roughly their height.:: Brodie: Well, shall we see what they've set up for us then? Garth/Vee/Bree: ??? Brodie: Now, now. You heard your mumshe needs to spend some time w= ith the doctor in private. I'm sure she won't be too long but we ne= ed to respect her privacy, don't we? Garth/Vee/Bree: ??? ::Brodie could have led with =E2=80=98You think that's bad? Wait un= til I tell you about the mutated crew of the Hercules with their claws that could sunder armour!' Instead he chose to lead with.:: Brodie: Well, you've hurt yourself in the past I'm sure, a = bumped head? A grazed knee? Garth/Vee/Bree: ??? Brodie: And how did that make you feel, here ::He pointed to his chest:: Inside? Garth/Vee/Bree: ??? TAG/TBC ------------------------------------ Lt.
