“Captain Harkness, we've been expecting you,” the petite young woman before him said, extending her hand out towards him.
Jack took her hand in his, lifted it to his lips and softly kissed the knuckles.
“The lovely Doctor Sato I've heard about I assume?” Jack said, giving her his widest smile.
“I am and I've been forewarned about you Sir,” Toshiko said with a smile of her own, removing her hand from the Captains.
“I don't know what you could possibly mean!” Jack answered, trying his best to look and sound completely innocent.
“Just remember that I'm your doctor and then we'll get on fine,” she said, turning to press some numbers on the keypad on the door behind her and then pushed it open. “if you'd like to follow me I'll introduce you to your fellow companions.”
“Don't you mean inmates?” Jack asked.
“We don't like to think of anyone unfortunate enough to be in here that way, they are just patients like any other hospital and I hope you can treat them with the same respect you'd hope for yourself?” Toshiko asked him.
“Of course, sorry,” Jack apologised, glancing about at the other patients in the large communal area.
“Good, now lets introduce you,” Toshiko told him and indicated various people in the room as she told him their names.
“The blonde girl over there in the corner is Rose, the black guy trying to get her to talk to him is Mickey,” Toshiko informed him. “the dark haired woman sat on the floor playing with the doll is Gwen and the woman sat at the far end of the room is Rhiannon.”
“I thought there would be more patients,” Jack said, taking in all the people around him.
“No, it's much easier with smaller groups to help them,” Toshiko said.
“Can I ask why they are here?” Jack asked.
“Those details are confidential, unless the patients offer them to you themselves,” she replied. “now, lets introduce to you the rest of the group.”
With that she called everyone to the group of chairs in the middle of the room and once they were all seated she sat herself and introduced Jack.
“Hi,” Jack told them cheerfully. “just so to reassure you that I'm not dangerous I want you to know that I'm here for one month after coming off strong medication for the pain in my leg, I hurt it over ten years ago in a plane crash.”
“That explains the limp then,” Mickey grinned, acknowledging him with a nod.
“We're you a pilot?” Gwen asked, her large eyes seeming to grow even bigger.
“Yep, in the RAF,” Jack replied proudly. “but an accident put paid to that, now I'm just stuck behind a desk.”
“I never want to go in a plane,” Rose put in quietly but a panic still evident in her voice. “no, never, never!”
“And no-one will ever make you,” Mickey told her comfortingly.
While Toshiko went around the small group asking them how they felt that day Jack focused on the one person who hadn't spoken, Rhiannon and wondered what her story was as she sat there completely silently gazing down at her hands in her lap.
