10. THEN- Kris

She's awake! 

"Oh Tor," I sob, "I thought you were-were"

"Hey, um, Kris, please can I just take a quick look at Tor to check her over?" the medic, Lily, asks. I nod and move to the side, holding Tor's hand.

Lily shines a light in Tor's eyes. The pupils don't contract. Oh dear.

"Okay, Tor, sweetie, I'm going to ask you a few questions. Is that all right?"

There is a slight delay but Tor answers "Yes."

"How old are you?"


"What's your friend here called?"

Her answer is so sudden it surprises me. "Kris."

Lily looks a bit confused. "If it's concussion, there's meant to be a delay when answering questions," she mutters, "but that answer was immediate....however the one before had a delay....interesting."

Lily clears her throat and tries again. "Tor, how long have you been down here for?"

Tor's expression is blank. "..........where?"

Lily gestures around her. "In this concrete bunker!"

"......oh, um........let's see, two years?"

Lily looks reassured. "Definite concussion," she murmurs, scribbling on a pad of paper she has produced from her green overalls.

Tor tries to get up. "Agggggggh!" she cries in pain.

"Lie still, darling. We need to get that head fixed up," Lily instructs, diverting her attention to the crackling walkie-talkie. "Okay, can I have a stretcher and a wheelchair to room 24. We have a girl with a serious head injury and a boy suffering from shock. Over."

I'm just so glad Tor is alive.
