"His name is Dalton," Shiress asked Kami, confused, "Why would he tell me his name is Noah?"

Kami shrugged, glancing down at the boy as her hand smoothed damp hair off his forehead, "I think it's a security measure for kids brought up as he's been. To some, knowing someone's true name can mean control," she explained, voice soft.

Shiress had met the healer, Kami, after she had stopped by The Panacea, looking to find someone to hand over the boy's care to after Shiress's hands had gotten burned at The Forge. Kami had been the first person she had run into at the clinic. Shiress explained Noah's situation in detail to the healer, detailing the boy's accident and resulting broken leg.

She had tried to explain her plan on stabilizing the break with the iron rods that Antelokes had constructed for her and was pleased to see the slight look of what may have been admiration that crossed the other female's face, but when Shiress lifted her bandaged hands and asked if someone else could treat the young man, Kami had been quick to point out the etiquette that Kami shared with her Akalak colleague; you finish what you have started, and went on to explain that Noah...well, Dalton, had already formed a bond of trust with Shiress when he had first been brought to her. Shiress had promised the boy would be okay, vowed to stop the pain, and Dalton had believed Shiress. Had trusted her. To switch caregivers would set the boy back.

Shiress eventually saw the healer's reasoning and agreed to continue her care, remembering Antelokes' words and his trust in Shiress's abilities, too. However, Kami had agreed to assist Shiress and would look after Dalton until her return. After going to the Outpost to seek out her own healing touch for her burned hands, Shiress had returned to a comfortable and sleeping Dalton and to a room fully prepped for the surgery that would potentially save the boy's leg.

Uta had returned her herb book and it was lying beside the table. Shiress had asked the young woman to update the collection of herbs and their uses in the book to include those from Syka. Pulling the book from the table, Shiress read through the new list, looking for concoctions that might be safe to use on such a small body.

"Thank you, Kami," Shiress said, looking over the supplies around the sleeping boy, "I can't tell you how much I appreciate your willingness to help me in this."

Kami inclined her head, "Absolutely," she replied, then smiled, "just consider me your exceptionally skilled nurse, if just for a day," she nodded toward Dalton, "I took the liberty and called on Rak'Keli to cleanse the boy's wound to lower his chances of infection."

Shiress sighed, relieved, and placed a gentle hand on the other woman's shoulder, giving it a grateful squeeze. "Okay then," she said, replacing the book and drawing in a fortifying breath, "Let's do this."

Shiress went to Dalton's side, placing a hand on his sweat-dampened forehead, then frowned, "he's feverish." she said, looking thoughtful, "from shock, I'm thinking."

On the other side of the table, Kami nodded her agreement, catching Shiress's eyes, "And the risk mounts the longer you wait."
