Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! These are the next sentences in my WIP about a boy who finds himself on a rail pod after escaping from a medical facility in a time and place far from here. This week, we find out what happened to Smith, one of the medtechs who had managed Blagdan’s unpleasant treatments at the facility.

The boy shuddered. Smith had been made strange in his death. His familiar face had been so indefinably altered that the boy had not recognised him when he found his crumpled form at the medtech station.
Blagdan had hovered. Scant moments of confusion and indecision stretched into infinity. The analog timepiece fixed on the wall behind the station ticked loudly, echoing down the empty corridors.
In an instant he was released into a frenzy of action. Grabbing Smith’s pass card, he fled to the forbidden staff change room. Scrambling into Smith’s outdoor wear had taken only a few frantic heart beats. Before he had even taken stock of the situation, he found himself shivering on the grey sidewalk outside the Facility.
