"Actually, I'm wondering if my brother's stopped by. He got into the
kind of trouble you and I got into all the time..." Doppler lets a
flash of concern show on his face. "...and much as we liked it, I
don't think it's his game. Nor do I think those around him would
appreciate it when he goes off. They certainly didn't at the one
incident I've seen."
"You mean Azalea?"
"..." Marcia shrugs. "Very well. He was here, wondering if you were
still alive. But that was days ago. I haven't seen him since."
"And you probably would have heard. Oh, well." He leans against the
doorjamb, their mutual presence holding the automatic doors open, then
"Oh, I just thought of something," Dee replies. "It's been over five
years...but a lifetime for both of us. *Minax* would never be a nurse
at a place like this. And I...well, Doppler didn't all die that night,
but it definitely started then. It's like we're two different people
now. Blank slate." He tips his hat. "And I, for one, would like to
hear how Minax died and Marcia was born."
Marcia frowns. "And why should I tell you that?"
Dee shrugs. "I'll buy you lunch. There's this great little vegetarian
cafe just down the street I doubt you've discovered yet."
