The Medical student-Zealious

“Ready?” I asked my patient who was currently lying on his stomach on the doctor’s bed.


Taking a deep breath the middle aged man nodded.


“Okay… Heal!” I chanted as I placed both my hands out in front of me. Green aura formed around the patient's leg.


“Gah..” He groaned as I started to heal him.


“Are you okay?” I asked him.


“Y-yeah… Just was a little surprised is all.”


“You don’t need to worry.” From what I’ve been learning for my entire time as a student, the number one rule when dealing with a patient is to get him/her as comfortable as possible. “I’m told that my Streaks(1) are even better then a lot of the teachers.”


“You’re not a teacher?”


“Uh…” I mentally slapped myself. I forgot that it’s against the rules for students to treat patients without a doctor present. “I mean… because I’m so young looking people tend to think I’m a student?” I didn’t even believe me.


The man laughed. “Hahaha, I don’t even care. I feel like I’m in heaven.”


I sighed. I’ve dealt with about seven patients today and I almost messed up.


Taking a moment to think on myself, I’m surprised of how I’m in this position. I’m seventeen and I’m the highest of the other medical students in school. Granted that means I don’t really make friends since either I come off as arrogant or they’re jealous. I always forget why I want this position.


“Hmm, good Streak, Zeal.” A sweet voice said.


“Gah?!” I blushed as I almost lose concentration of my healing Streak. I feel my face light up as I turned my head sideways to see my mentor, Hygieia an expert when it comes to health.


Oh yeah, that’s why.


“W-what are you doing here?” I stuttered.


“You didn't think you could get away with treating patients without me noticing did you?” She laughed. “I was here the whole time hiding behind the blinds.”


“Of course you were…” I said under my breath.


“Oh so you are a student.” My patient said.


Luckily. “Okay… you’re done.” I stopped using my Streak.


He groaned as he slowly got up and stretched. “I can’t believe I made such a childish mistake of messing up my Streak Flow.”


“There’s been a lot of people messing up their Streaks.” Hygieia said while taking notes in her clipboard. “Thank you for your time.”


“Are you kidding?” He looks to me with a smile. “Thank you for your help.”


“No problem.” I scratched the back of my head in embarrassment as he exist.


I sighed as I tried to relax when he left. “As much as I like helping people, I wish I had more free time.”


“Hehe, You’re good at what you do so don’t complain.” Instead of sitting on her chair like a normal person she sits on the desk and crosses one leg over the other. “Here.” She places the chair in front of her for me to sit.


I shrugged my shoulders and took a seat. “You find it weird how so many peop- what are you doing?” I almost jump when I feel a set of hands placed themselves on my shoulders.


“Trying to help you calm down. You push yourself way to hard.” She says as she carefully found the spots of tension and began to melt them away. “With my mana you’ll be okay in no time.”


“Ah.. t-thanks…” I tried to find out what I was going to say. “So uh… any idea why so many people’s Streaks are messing up?” I force out.


“Hmm,” The look on her face depends. “No idea but I’m sure that it’ll pass.” Both her hands become covered in a green aura. “Okay, ready?”


“For what?” She answered by sending a flow of mana(2) into my shoulder that made a loud pop sound go off in the room.


“Wow!” I jump up from my seat feeling brand new. “You’re amazing!”


“I try my best.” She shrugs. “So now that that’s done I was wondering if you could do me a favor.”


And here it goes…


“Of course!” I agreed without thinking.


She pulls a letter from her ample bosom which caught me off guard. “Can you go out and deliver this for me?”


I take the letter from her. “Uh… do I really have to?” It was pretty late and I didn’t really want to go out.


“But you said-”


“Okay okay I’m going!” I said as I started to exist the room.


Damn it!, I yelled in my head. She does this all the time, first she does something really nice then BAM! I’m punching a Griffon.


If it wasn't obvious… I have a thing for her. She’s one of the only people that I can actually talk to and plush… she’s not bad on the eyes either to be honest. I slap myself for thinking that.


Before I made my way outside I quickly got changed from my uniform. Now I dressed in a doctor’s lab coat, black long pants, and a yellow undershirt. I also made sure to get my weapons, Bracers and metal plated boots. I may be a doctor student but I’ve trained in martial arts.


The lamp post will make sure that I don’t end up getting lost. Plush there’s also the river trail.


“Please… stop.” I hear a voice cry.


“Huh?” I look around to find the source.


After a little searching thanks to the lamps I was able to see my target. To my surprise it was a Kur(3). A bunny ne to be honest. She doesn’t seem to go to my school either but she did look my age.


Some jerks were pulling on her ears and rather hard I might ask.


“Stop!” I called as I ran by them getting their attention. They look back and I showed them I fake police badge I made in school. It was dark so that helped my cover up and they took off running leaving her by herself.


“Wow… what idiots.” I chuckled to myself. “Are you okay?” My eyes widened when I look at her. Her face read fear and unacceptance.


Probably should’ve realized that… Kurs… aren’t really accepted into the world at least by humanity to be honest.


She looked to be on the urge of crying to and was still holding her ears.


“Uh…” This was awkward. I tried to think of something I could do to gain her trust.


I noticed that she starts to run away. “Stop!” I yell after her and to my surprise she stops dead in her tracks. “Huh?” I tilted my head.


“You… said ‘stop’ didn’t you?” She says back in a shaking voice.


Oh right… she’s probably used to being told what to do by humans all the time. Great now look what I’ve done. “No I didn’t mean to tell you to stop.”


“So can I go?”


“Sure you can.”


She starts to walk off again. “Wait!”


“W-what?”


I mentally tear my hair out. “I mean you can go-stop!” I yell when she tries to run again.


“Are y-you just playing with me?”


“Damn it, I just want to help!”


Open mouth insert foot.


She looked like she didn’t like that I used the word ‘damn’, as if she’s never heard a curse before.


I sighed. If she’s going to listen to me I might as well use it to my advantage…


I hold my hand out. “Give me your ear.” And as commanded she did so. I can hear her whimpers as I hold them. “It’s okay.” I said gently as my hands were coated in a green aura. Using my healing streak I rubbed up and down her ears trying to heal all of the pain she has.


She started to struggle at first but eventually she started to calm down. In fact she even started to enjoy it.


“Mmmm~, th-thank you.” When it seemed that she calmed down I stopped although she seemed slightly disappointed.


“Sorry about the confusion, I have nothing against Kurs I just wanted to help you.” I bow to her.


She looks to her side and takes a deep breath. “My name… is Cabby and… I love cats.” She awkwardly says while holding a hand out.


“Huh…” I tilted my head.


“That’s how humans become friends right?” She pulls her hand back and nervously scratches the side of her head. “We say our name and then… say something we like.”


I couldn’t help but laugh, she needs lessons it seems. “My name is Zealious and I like eating.” I said honestly.


“Oh!” Her ears stood up straight. “Would you like to share my vegetables?!”  She pulls a bunch of carrots out of nowhere.


“I’ll pass I still need to… Oh crap!” It hit me. “I still haven't even found out where I’m supposed to deliver the letter!”


“Fri-Zeal… lious are you okay?” Looks like she needs time.


“No…” I crouched down to sulk.


She looks like she wants to comfort me. “Uh… would you like to rub my ears?” She crouches down next to me.


“Huh?”


“Lots of other guys asked and they say it ‘makes guys feel good’.”


My eyes widened. “That’s… something else.”


“Huh?” She tilted her head.


“Best not explained.”


*Ring Ring* *Ring Ring*. My phone ranged. “Hello?” I answered.


“Zealious! Please hurry!”


“Hygieia? What’s the matter?”


“There’s one last important patient I need you to look at, please!”


“O-of course, I’ll be right over.” I said while hanging up the phone. “Sorry Cabby, but I gotta run.”


She grabs my arm. “Can I… come to?”


I was taken back a little but… it couldn’t hurt right?


“Okay… follow me.” I said as I ran back to the school with a new ‘Friend’ along. I couldn’t have predicted that this moment would change my life forever. But I’ll stick through it… because I have Determination!
