Raphael and Fausto choose to go to the main building for luch and to relax a bit afterward. So it was only Ella and Tom walking down to the cafeteria.
"I don't really know if I should ask, but what is this ?" Tom was pushing the food around his plate looking at it suspiciously.
Ella smiled teasingly. "I warned you didn't I ? But it's foat in curry with rice, it is actually okay if you don't think to much about it".
Tom looked at it again, then he shrugged and started eating, after a couple of mouthfuls he looked at her. "Your right it is actually quite tasty".
Ella finished up her food and waited for Tom to finish before getting up. "I am going to work in the clinic, care to join me ?"
"I would love to, I am really glad that you are letting me se and experience everything". He sendt her a beaming smile and but his tray in the holder.
She shrugged but smiled back at him, it was impossible not to. "No problem, I just hope that when people se you care they will care enough to make a donation".
"Me to, I will do anything I can to make people aware of the great work you do here". The walked out the cafeteria and toward the medical clinic.
They walked into one of the treatment areas and Ella started getting her things ready. "We are offering free vaccination for kids 3 afternoons every week, so that's what I'll be doing".
"I think that is so great, it is okay for me to be here ?" He was watching everything she did curiously.
"Of course, but just so you are ready for it, some of the kids are very malnurished and some has really bad injuries from attacks". She looked at him, could he handle that ?
He nodded and said with his voice quite emotionel. "Then it is only much more importent to protect them, let's get to it".
She smiled and called out to the receptionist that they where ready for the first patient.
Once again Tom showed he had a fantastic way with children, even though he couldn't speak with them, he made them smile and laugh and feel secure.
A grandmother brought in to little boys, and after they where done he padded Toms cheek and said in broken english. "Very nice and very handsome this one, right Ella ?"
Tom blushed and Ella answered grinning. "Sure Abida, you are absolutely right, are you looking for a new young husband ?"
"Not for Abida she to old, for Ella, you need good man". The old woman said clicking her tongue, and now Ella was blushing.
She ushered out her grandkids, sending them a toothless smile and a knowing look, Ella and Tom look at one another and startet giggling.
A little girl with severe burns in her face from a bombing came in, Ella looked at Tom to see his reaction, a look of sorrow and compassion on his face, but then he turned on his million dollar smile and squatted down to the girls height, the girl smiled back and so did Ella.
When to girl was getting her shoot she insisted on sitting on Toms lap and he lifted her up, holding her gently and talking to her while Ella gave her the vaccination.
The little firl started crying and threw her arm around Toms neck, and he hugged her, talking soothingly and stroking her back until she was happy again.
"Do you have a family at hom Tom ? Kids ?" She couldn't help but ask after the little girl and her mother had left.
He shook his head, his eyes a bit sad. "Unfortunately no, no kids yet and no one to have them with either, but hopefully some day".
"You are going to be an amazing father, you are so good with the children". She said, wondering why this near perfect speciment of a man didn't at least have a girlfriend.
His face lighted up. "Bless you, that is such a nice thing to say, I really appreciate that, what about you ?"
She shook her head. "Oh no, I have more than enough to do with my work here and no plans of going back home in the near furture, maybe never".
The next patient entered, and they and they concentrate on getting the job done, working through all of the waiting patients.
