Everything is as we expected.
Looks like you’ve managed to disarm our loaded gun.
How’d ya knock her out?
Highly concentrated drip of valerian and Jamaican Dogwood.
Charlie is surprised.
Sometimes the old remedies are the best.
We’ll be able to protect her until the hearing is over.
Protect her. Don’t you mean control her?
You understand our situation, Doctor Kricke. Don’t act like you think she’s harmless.
She’s a teenager. This is inhumane.
Despite all your noble allusions, Doctor, Katarina Rodriguez is a member of this community now. She can never again use that excuse.
Aletta Guzman starts down the hallway, with Joe at her side. Charlie and Ma Wei follow them.
She’s already caused enough trouble for ten wards, and she’s only likely to trigger more. I don’t believe even you want the proverbial loaded gun in the hands of teenager?
Joe reluctantly shakes his head.
Neither do I. Even if she is my granddaughter.
