'What did they do to you?!' I asked, shocked, taking his arm and looking at just how bad the cuts and burns were. Straight away I felt around in my pack for the first aid kit we always carried with us. I knew they would have more stuff somewhere in the school, so I promised myself that as soon as it was safe I would go find it. I set to work on putting creams and bandages on his arms and legs as he continued on with his story. 'They grabbed me and all I remember of that night is getting kicked and beat around the street by the patrol. They were screaming and shouting all sorts of things but the only thing I could understand of what they were saying was 'You do this?!' Then I woke up in the Wirrawee hospital. No one was around and I tried to get up but I was in too much pain. I ended up staying there for 8 days. They had beaten me pretty hard, I assume, from the amount of pain I had! The place felt empty. The only person I saw was a nurse once each day, who came in and changed the food tray and check on my burns and cuts. But there was no one else around that I heard or saw. By the ninth day the pain had almost gone and I was feeling a lot better, so after the nurse made her visit, I made my escape. They are pretty slack in the hospital. If you act sick they don't worry about you and it's pretty easy to get out. I carefully walked down the corridor and headed around to the emergency exit. No one was around, so I opened the door and made a run for the bushes. That's probably how these got so bad.' Lee pointed at his burns and cuts 'Because I've been stuck in the bushes for the past 12 days. I tried to head back to Hell, but every time I try to work my way around the outside of Wirrawee to get to the bush that would lead to Hell I'd either run into patrols and have to turn back so they don't catch me, or I run out of energy and have to rest. I've made it as far as the school. They even sent out a small search party searching for me at one stage. But I think they gave up. They know what I look like now though, so they know who to look for. They've got patrols everywhere. They're really scared about this attack and are really buckling down. So I guess we've done our job well.' Homer smiled at me, obviously satisfied that we had given them a scare. 'Seeing how scared it made them makes getting beat up almost worth it.' Lee nodded to himself, then flinched as I smothered the biggest cut in cream. He sighed. 'That feels better. They have been flaming and so painful.' I looked up at him. 'You're lucky. They are close to infection.' Lee shivered. 'So what happened with you guys since the attack?' He asked looking around.
