[Wednesday morning is a particularly warm day in Mayfield. With the sun in the sky, it seems like the perfect time to go for a swim down at the rec center. Luckily for you, although the pool has been closed off the past two days, it seems as though this morning, someone has left the door unlocked.

But you may not want to go for a swim. The water in the pool is tinged pink, and there's a terrible smell. In the center of the pool, floating face down, in a man dressed in a police uniform. His limbs are broken and he is bleeding profusely from somewhere on his head into the water.

Without seeing his face, it's difficult to tell who this man is, but this man is too thin and too tall to be Officer Grady.]

Update: Evan Olney is now dead.

[As soon as he sees the uniform, the Doctor jumps into the pool (in the shallow end because Time Lords are not made for swimming!) and goes over the body. It's not any fellow officer that he recognizes. Which makes him even more nervous about the entire thing.

He takes it gently by the hand and pulls it into the shallow end, preparing to examine it.]

[The hand in his grasp tenses slightly as he touches it.

This man is still alive.]

[The Doctor gasps and grabs the man by the middle and pulls him over to the stairs used to exist and enter the pool.

The Doctor struggles to carry the man out of the pool gently, being a skinny weak idiot, and instead settles for leaving him propped up against the stairs.

He turns the man over, to keep his face out of the water.]

[The man coughs and sputters as he's pulled from the water. The Doctor might notice the deep blood stains all over his uniform, implying the head wound is not the only wound. The Doctor might notice that his badge does in fact say Officer Grady. The Doctor might also notice the head wound: it appears a bullet went through the man's eye at close range. A large part of his face is gone.

There is no reason this man should still be alive.]

[The Doctor cringes at the sight of such wounds, but swallows and gets closer to the man. Helping him keep his head up out of the water as he coughs.]

...Officer Grady?

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
[He groans, obviously in terrible pain at being moved.]

Don't call me that.

What do you think you're doing?

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
Your badge...

[Is he really going to try to argue with the should be corpsy-guy? Really? Best not to.]

Right, well, was thinking about investigating your body. But then it turned out, somehow, that you're actually not a corpse at all! ...Mostly.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
I'm a corpse. A living one.

I know what my badge says, and I am who you think.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
Well, seems I had it right. D'you remember me? I'm one of your... erm, Grady's officers. Before you went all corpse-y.

The Doctor?

[He gestures to himself.]

And obviously, I'm going to ask you what happened, so might as well as right now. Take your time. What happened?

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, I know who you are. "Officer Doctor." It doesn't make us friends.

[He coughs]

Don't waste your breath. I stopped going to church when I was a kid, and I don't need any deathbed confessions to set me on my way.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
No, but you know me. And that's a start.

[A pause.]

Well, I've never been to church at all and I'm not looking for a deathbed confession for your soul. I want to know what happened and why. For the sake of everyone else here.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
For their sake, is that right?

Why am I supposed to care? As far as I'm concerned, your existence is a ridiculous joke.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
And why is that? Jokes tend to be funny, I haven't laughed in sometime since coming here.

Really bad joke if you ask me.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
I never laughed, either.

But none of you are worth a second of my breath. Get out of here.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
And why's that? Seems like a lot of time is wasted keeping us penned in and inline.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
Seems so.

[He closes his eyes, tuning out the Doctor's voice.]

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
So that's it then.

You're just going to stay like that and rot and not tell us anything? That's how it's going to be?

[His voice is rising against his will.]

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
That's it.

[There's a small smile on Evan's face. He's enjoying that the Doctor is starting to get angry.]

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
So what? You want me to leave you here to die? Except for the fact that you've completely failed to even manage that on your own.

If you weren't going to tell us anything, there's no point in you being alive at all!

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
Did you think they're keeping me alive for your sake?

I want you to leave me here so I can suffer like they want without also having to suffer your questions.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
So you're just going to lie there, being completely and utterly useless, until Lucy Smith gets bored and kills you off. Brilliant.

Can we have the old you back? I think he was better.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
There is no old me. There's just me.

I hate that bitch, but not any more than I hate all of you.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 05:07 am (UTC)(link)
And what have we done to earn your hate? Really, I'm quite curious.

[identity profile] mayfield-mods.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
And you'll stay curious. Ain't that just a peach.

[identity profile] coolbowtie.livejournal.com 2011-07-20 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
...What's going to happen? Are you going to die and be replaced like Ja-... Samantha?

Or will you wake up as the old fat Officer Grady again?
