Chapter 9:
Check Up in the Medical Department

“This has been an eventful evening wouldn’t you say Amber?” Hanako asked only notice the unicorn lost in her train of thought with a serious look on her face. “Hello?”

“Huh? Oh, sorry my lady. I was….thinking.”

“Still angry about what happened at dinner I take it?”

“I’d be lying if I say I wasn’t.”

“I wouldn’t worry about it so much really. I’m pretty sure she’s just pissed that she wasn’t here before I came to save you guys. Plus from what you said, it seems you hit the nail on the board when it came to them being prepared to “save” the Crystal Empire from Sombra.”

“I’m not sorry about what I said.”

“Which I have no problem with that. You have every right to be pissed off at them. But next time try to be more...tactful and more calm about that subject.”

“....I make no promises about that.”

“Well can you at least try not to attack them if any of them bring up that subject. Lord know I don’t want anymore trouble between now and when their princesses come here.”

“I’ll try...but I make no promises.”

“I’ll take it.” Hanako said as she yawned. “Welp, I’m heading for bed. Make sure the guards keep a watch on the ponies from Equestria, and have the guard patrol the kingdom.”

“As you command my lady.” Amber said as she trotted off down the hall.”

“The sooner they’re gone, the sooner I can focus on getting stuff don’t then have to worry about the Equestrians.” Hanako said as she started to make her way to her room. “First order of business is to check on Northstar and see how things are going for the medical team.”

[Medical wing]

“It’s such an honor to have you here in the medical room Lady Hanako.” Northstar said as she guided the ronin through the room. “I’m a bit surprise that you would be here so early in the morning.”

“Just came to see how things are in the medical wing and see how far it progressed. How’s it going by the way?”

“Oh it’s going well. Especially with the information from books you gave us. I had no idea you can use magic in such a way. You’re even able to use magic to bring somepony back from the dead so long as it’s within the twenty-four hour period. You humans are both interesting and fearful creatures when you want to.”

“We can be when we want to be. Though it’s the one with powers are the ones that are the fearful ones.”

“Kinda like how you are?”

“I have common sense unlike most ponies do. So is there anything you need that you’re missing?”

“Not really. We been able to produce a lot of the potions from the books you gave us on how to make them.”

“Good to hear that. Well seeing how you got everything under control, I guess I’ll make my leave.”

“Oh, before you go there’s something that I need from you that Amber said it was okay for me to do.”

“And what would that be?” Hanako asked as she turned around to look back at the medical pony. Only for the color of her skin to turn pale upon seeing a the pony levitating a medium size syringe with a thick needle on it.

“I need to take a few blood samples from you. Seeing how you’re the only human in this world. I need to make something in case our medicine or medical treatment fail to save you.”

“Understandable...but why do you need a syringe like that?”

“Well there’s the thing. In order for me to do that, I’m gonna need to take some of your marrow. And this needle here is going to help me do that.” Northstar said as she start to walk over to Hanako with a devilish grin on her face. “You understand right? We’re doing this so we can be prepare for the worse.”

“....Why are you in this field of work again?”

“Because I’m the best they have. Now let’s get this over with so we don’t have to put this on the side burner and forget about.” The unicorn said as she motion Hanako to follow her to the operating table. “I hate to ask of this, but you’ll need to remove your clothes. It’s standard protocol here and I won’t be able to get it right if I can’t see where I’m putting the needle through.”

“Fine, but I’m keeping my bra and underwear on.” Hanako said as she walked over to the operating table while removing her clothes and gear from off herself. After removing her clothes and gear, the ronin sat on the operating table while looking over at Northstar looking at her due to her battle scars on her body. “What?”

“Oh, nothing. Just got distracted by those scars all over your body. I mean...most of them look like fatal to near death wounds.”

“That’s pretty much how it was during the war in Ivalice. I’m a bit surprise that I was able to survive that one.”

“Was it that bad of a war to get those scars?”

“...You have no idea, nor do I wish to tell you about it. Right now let’s just get this out of the way so I can check up on the others on their progress.”

“Of course my lady.” Northstar said walking over to Hanako as she levitated a goss covered with alcohol as she rubbed it around Hanako left thigh leg. “Fair warning before I do this. Unlike taking blood samples from pony’s forehoof. I’m taking blood samples from the inside of your thigh bone. Meaning that this is going to be very painful seeing how I’m going through the bone. You ready for this?” The mare asked as he levitates the needle close to the area that she’s prepare to extract.

“Let’s just get this over with so I don’t have to deal with this later on.”

“I’m so in advance for this.” Without even a second thought, Northstar slammed the needle of the syringe into Hanako’s thigh. As the needle went through her thigh and into her femur bone, Hanako gritted her teeth as she gripped the edge of the table that she was sitting on. “How are you holding up?”

“I-I’m fine. T-This wouldn’t be t-the first time I had something like this happens to me.” Hanako said as she tried her best to smile, but due to the pain it only came out as a painful one. “I hope this is all you need from me?”

“For now yes, but I’ll be needing some more from you later on during your ruling.” Northstar started draining some of the blood within Hanako’s femur. As the syringe started to fill up with her blood, the unicorn carefully removed the medical needle from her leg as she quickly used her magic to heal the area. “Again sorry in advance for doing that to you.”

“It’s fine. I can see why you have to do that. But damn does it hurt.” The Ronin said as she rubbed her thigh to comfort it. “Do you do this to most ponies here?”

“Rarely I do this kind of thing. But seeing how you’re a new species and all, we have to make sure we have something made for you incase our medicine doesn’t work on you. Anyway you might feel a bit light headed and weak for a few hours or so seeing how I have to pull out a lot of bone marrow. In the meantime, try to relax for a few hours until that time. Meaning you are not allowed to get into fights or training sessions.”

“Why do I get the feeling that Amber planned for this to happen.” Hanako thought as she sighed in annoyance. “Okay, anything else that I need to know before I leave?”

“We’ll call you back once we get a full analysis from your bone marrow. But for now we’re done here for today.”

“Good, now if you’ll excuse me. I’m heading over to see Brimstone to see how he’s doing with the armory and stuff.” Hanako grunted as she pulled herself up from the table. Upon standing, the ronin staggered a bit before placing a hand on the table for support.

“Told you so.” Northstar said as Hanako looked over at the unicorn with a deadpanned expression on her face.

“Smartass.” Hanako grumbled as she quickly put her clothes and gear back on, and began to make her way outside of the medical wing.

“Alrighty then.” Northstar levitated the syringe as she summoned a unicorn wearing a white mage robe over to her. “Sapphire, I need you to take this over to Midnight and have him examine Lady Hanako’s bone marrow sample so we can make medicine for her.”

“Do you think that this will be enough for him to make it?”

“It should be enough for him to make one. But if not, then I’ll ask Amber to send Lady Hanako over here to get another sample from her.” Northstar said as she started to head back over to her desk. “If there’s a problem with making the medicine, call me and I’ll help. Until then I’ll be filling out paperwork that haven’t been signed off in the past couple of years.”

“Yes, ma’am.” Sapphire said as she trotted off.

“I have to admit. This is going to be an interesting new age Lady Hanako is bringing to this kingdom….now if only I could examine her more than just taking a bone marrow sample.” Northstar said as a bit of saliva ran down her mouth for a moment before wiping it off. The mare quickly looked around to see if anypony saw this. Thankfully, nopony did as she composed herself. “Keep it together Northstar. Just be patient, and sooner or later you’ll get your chance to...examine her more~.”
