Dr. Victor was beginning to regret leaving the conversation of an eight year old for this.
"Alex, please, sit down. You're rambling, your heart is probably racing and your teeth can be fixed if you stop flapping your jaw."
He adjusted his shirt, tugging it over his waist a little too forcefully to be happenstance.
"Thank you, though. I appreciate you remembering about my query. The difficulties between that man Ashley and myself are really none of your concern; to put it bluntly I have no beef with him and it is all just in his little head. Now, for me to ask, have you spoken with Ione about your tone yesterday? I'm sure you signed up to get out of the building, but she deserves some measure of reply from you. I don't know what your intentions were, and frankly, I'm not too concerned myself. However, you have to understand we can't let things get to everyone. If we are at each others' throats, we might as well all jump off the building."
He waved his hand a few times, the wrist making it flop around like a dead limb.
"But enough about that. We all have important sides to our personality which people may not accept. And I assure you, it is best to remain off specific subjects. Think of this as if you were dating everyone here, okay? Avoid subjects like religion, politics, and ex-lovers and you should be fine."
He offered up a dry chuckle.
"Anyways, Alex, I'm glad you are back. Regardless as to what may come of you and Ione, I think you are a very valuable person to the group. You have such vim and vigor, it is refreshing to partake of your company. I think I have a few pills I can spare for your teeth. You just need to eat something first, something of mild substance. Any allergies?"
The doctor winked at Dr. Melange with his back turned to the young man. Everyone must pretend to be dating; this is what we call the 'sympathy flirt.' He coughed to cover up a sudden giggle. He returned quickly with the pills. Dr. Victor clapped Alex on the shoulder, reassuringly and offered him a flat smile.
"It's just ibuprofen, so... here's two 200mg pills. Remember, eat something first. And, if you see Ione, don't bum rush her like you did me just no, okay?"
