Sickbay - Deck 3
Serving as the ship's primary care facility, the Medical Center is a rather large, single room structure that has the same load-bearing structures to the walls that the halls do, as well as the same heavy hatch. There is a desk at the entrance staffed by a nurse as well as a small locker for single dose drugs like aspirin. Beds are lined up along each wall with EKG's and hangers for IVs in case of triage. Large cabinets at the rear provide ready access to lifesaving medicines and gear, as well as a ready supply of defibrillators. Not far from the primary entrance is the Chief Medical Officer's office and on the other side is a small hatch to the recovery ward. Towards the rear is a sectioned-off examination area. Opposite the hatch to recovery is a sealed doorway leading down a hallway to the ship's morgue.
25 April 2006 - AWD #474

It's evening time, or so it would be if you were down on the planet. Here on the ship.. it's.. almost 1700 hours! Tonight it would seem Wilhelmina has pulled the short straw on checking on inventory, making marks on a list and pulling a few things aside to send down to the planet in the next shipment that is being taken down. At times, she whistles softly a tune, though it's hard to place as disjointed as it might be between the odd words spoken to herself as she works.

<FS3> Marcus rolls Music Composition: Failure.

Arriving in the sickbay, he expected to see Doctors, instead, as he notices the pretty blonde nurse that greeted him to Orion, Marcus pauses for a moment to watch her at work - okay, so he's probably checking out her backside, though he can't quite place the song that she's whistling as she works. He finally clears his throat a little. "Mina?" he says as he waits to be acknowledged before speaking further.

<FS3> Wilhelmina rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Truly, Wilhelmina isn't exactly expecting anyone to come in the sickbay, but thankfully, she doesn't startle when someone clears their throat behind her when she wasn't expecting them to do so! Turning to peer behind her, she ohs upon spying the pilot there, a smile flashing over her lips as she sets down her clipboard, "Marcus, right?" She's met a LOT of people, though surely it's a good thing his name stuck with her, hmm? "What brings you to the sickbay?" No doubt, he's getting that look over from the nurse to check and see if anything is visibly wrong with him!

"Right, Marcus.. or just Marc, if you want?" the Lieutenant offers as he smiles a little nervously. "Was looking for one of the doctors to get some information for one of my sergeants." Reaching up to rub the back of his head, there's a hint of red in his cheeks. "I can come back later if you're busy." His idea is suddenly seeming bad when approached by the young blonde.

Her impish look only makes him blush more before the Lieutenant steps closer, Marcus deciding that this needs some discretion in this case. "She's having a bit of a time with.. partners." he tries first, "And I have decided to ask her to hold a class to teach her fellow Marines the dangers of spending time so openly and publically with partners, especially on shore leave as visits to Picon may become more common with it being freed."

Wilhelmina listens, brows still arched upwards as she tries to figure out exactly what he's trying to get across, "The dangers of multiple partners or…?" Either she's not quite understanding, or she's just trying to get him to speak on this uncomfortable subject further! Ahem.

<FS3> Marcus rolls Reaction: Success.

The ruddiness in Marcus' cheeks doesn't quite go away, though his blue eyes reflect the uncomfortness of it all before he speaks up, a slight hitch in his voice. "Sex, Mina. There's rumors about her sexual exploits, and even though we all have been given shots to protect against pregnancies, it does not protect against the basic STDs and other issues that come from liaisons."

Wilhelmina nods once more, though she tries not to chuckle. Much. "Nothing against sex.. though, if you'd like the information to at least hand out as a reminder to your guys and gals, I can find the information for you to leave around the bunks?" The offer is made, though she tilts her head, "Are you worried about that, or more about the rumors though?" Sounds like that to her!

"Well, no, nothing wrong with sex with the right partner.." Marcus doesn't even realize what he says sometimes, as he meets the blonde's blue eyes with his own. "No no, she's going to give a class on it. You know, a little public shaming to remind her to be discrete in her actions." There's a faint smirk at that as he nods. "She's a good sergeant, I don't want her to throw away a good career on a move from her loins and not her head."

"That's the honest truth there.." Wilhelmina states lightly, finally chuckling as she catches that smirk, and his plans for the Sarge. "Ah, I see…" With that in mind, she fetches the information that the woman will need, bringing it all over to him along with a big envelope, "Here's the information, from lists of STDs, pictures with warnings and symptoms, some various means of protection…" Sex Ed in a big manilla envelope! "Think that will do?"

There's a brief look of amusement as Marcus takes the envelope, a light brush of fingers to each other. Then his face lights up with a thought. "Do you have any of those old film reels from the first war that taught sex education?" he asks. "My grandfather used to make jokes about those damn things all the time."

The brush of fingers is light, a brief moment of contact as the envelope is passed between them, though Wilhelmina does look to him a moment longer. At his question, her expression turns thoughtful, "I… don't know. I can see what we have in the database. One never knows what you can find.." There's likely a doctor somewhere who has tortured the grunts with it along the way. Or showed it amongst the med staff for good laughs. "Let's see what we can find…" Turning, she heads for one of the computer terminals to see what they can find.

"If you don't find anything, it's fine.. just a thought." Marcus says as he considers. "So.. are you on duty all the time?" he asks, a lame attempt maybe to find out when she may be available for some of the extra-ciricular activities they're currently discussing. Ahem! Probably not, though.

<FS3> Wilhelmina rolls Research: Good Success.

Wilhelmina hmms as she starts typing at the computer, digging into files on the system, "I'm still figuring out what they have hidden away, actually. Which is why I can't say for certain if there is a film like that or not here.." When asked, she answers with a flash of a teasing smile, "No, not always. I've been known to go down to the planet.. discovered a place just yesterday… Checkpoint Charlies?" She got out?!? Who let her off the chain??

"It's a popular spot to unwind. I go to the Officer's Club sometimes to play." Marcus comments as he gives her a grin, coming to stand behind her to look at the files as she scrolls through them. "Perhaps you can come listen sometime?"

"You play?" Surprise shows in voice, even if he can't see it upon her face as she studies the files that come up listed, "Hmm.. this might…" She murmurs half to herself as she clicks on one to see what it is - not the right one - this one seems to be a vid of a surgery. Interesting to her, but perhaps not so to him. "I'd like that.." Wilhelmina offers, turning to look to him as she says it, "They have certain open mic nights or…?"

<FS3> Marcus rolls Reaction: Failure.

The sight of someone's infected nethers being cut away causes Marcus to turn more than a little green at the gills as he reaches up to cover his mouth with his hand and swallows hard. "..I-I don't know. I just usually ask, or play when noone else is around." the Lieutenant manages as he turns away to try to regain his composure and not heave his lunch into a bedpan. "When would you like to go? Wouldn't mind playing to an audience for a change, if you don't mind me being a little terrible at times. I'm trying to write an original composition."

Does Wilhelmina realize that the poor guy is about to barf? If she does, it doesn't show on her face as she clicks the vid closed, making mental note of checking it out later. Another video is clicked on, and this time…. this time… it's the right one! Or at least it may be.. it's B&W and likely made back in the 1940s or something. But it's listed about STDs! "Here's something.." Again, that soft husky murmur before she pauses it and turns to look his direction, "I wouldn't mind, if you might agree to return the favor sometime?"

"Oh? What do you perform?" Marcus asks curiously, before he finally gets the bravery to turn to look at the video and laughs. "Yes, that's it!" he says as he puts his hands on her shoulders to give her a squeeze in delight. "Thank you, Lieutenant, this is exactly what I was looking for. Think you can get me a copy of it?"

"I play the guitar a little. Haven't in a while. Here's hoping that I still have enough calluses to not end up making my fingers blister." Wilhelmina offers, only to grin as he agrees the video is the one he was hoping for. "Oh look…" All together in a file with the video, there seems to be some jpgs of the old posters as well. "I can send you the link to the file in an email, if you'd like? Or even copy it over there to you.." Shoulders relax under his hands, her back leaning into him a little in reaction.

"I play the violin." Marcus admits as his fingers continue to manipulate and work her shoulders, fingers pressing into her flesh as he gives her an impromptu massage for her help with the project. "..don't know if we'd sound good together." It's given in a half-teasing matter as he looks down at her for a moment.

"Right… I remember you playing the first time met you in the rec room. Though I admit, the first sound was… less than stellar." Wilhelmina teases, an while she gets his email, she will send him those copies quick as you please. All the better to then relax under the impromptu massage offered. Knots? She's got a few. Damn inventory! "Hm… I'm sure with a little practice, we'd sound terrific…"

"Think so, hmm? I'm willing to find out." Marcus says, a squeeze of her shoulders and a grin. "When you're off-duty." he points out to her, before he shares his email and releases her shoulders finally. "Don't say I didn't warn you that I'm inexperienced." he says with a wink over his shoulder as he starts to head off.

A look is given to him, Wilhelmina left smiling a little more,t hat impish glint in her eyes to show once more, "I'm willing to find out as well.." Of course, he has to point out she's still working, "I'll be off in a couple of hours, if you're still awake." With the copies sent, she rises, watching as he heads out of the sickbay, leaving her to once more take on the inventory.
