Swamped Chapter 135 Page 2

You distinctly remember talking to the man with a scar on his cheek. You don’t entirely remember what the conversation was – or rather, will be – about, but you need to start it. It’s important, even if you don’t know why.

Fortunately, enough time has passed that they’re convinced there won’t be a relapse, so they’ve untied you. You’ve still been advised to lie down, but it’s not as if they’re actively watching you. They’re far too busy for that. You just need to quickly glance through your curtain and make sure the doctor and both nurses are busy.

They are. You step out, and look for the man with a scar.

Hmm. His associates are at the emergency exit, but he doesn’t seem to be with them. Perhaps you should ask them if they’ve seen him. Then again, they’d probably ask you questions in return, and you’d really rather keep that to a minimum.

The irst thing to do, you suppose, is check if you can spot him anywhere else. But you don’t. So he’s either behind a patient’s curtain – possibly his own – or he’s ducked into one of the various side rooms for whatever reason.

Well. You might as well make your best guess as to where he is. If it doesn’t pan out, then you can risk the uncomfortable questions.
