Face

Cassandra was sitting on the table. It had taken a little bit of work to figure out how to get herself on the table.

“You need to keep your eyes closed while I do this. The light will damage your eyes,” QT said.

“That should not be a problem.”

QT turned on the light over Cassandra’s head.

The boy’s chin was resting on the table. His hands were on the table as well. The toy robot was on the floor at his feet.

The light moved around Cassandra’s head.

“All right, Cassandra, now I need you to lie down, as low as you can get so that your head will be under the light.”

Cassandra slid down on the table and laid back. She could only fit on the table down to her knees, the rest of her legs dangled off the edge of the table.

The boy, who had hid when Cassandra moved, came back up to watch again.

“Good, turn your head to the right, please.”

Cassandra turned her head; the boy started to duck when Cassandra turned in his direction until he realized that her eyes were closed.

QT again turned on the light and scanned the left side of Cassandra’s face.

“Turn to the middle now,” QT said.

Cassandra turned her face upwards into the light. QT scanned that as well.

“Last, but not least, the right side of your face,” QT said.

Cassandra turned to the last side of her face.

“We are done with that. There is only one thing that I would like to do. I just want to…”

The door opened, the boy quickly hid. Cassandra tipped her head back on the table. With her upside down vision she saw David standing in the doorway.

“What the hell is this?” David yelled.

“QT was helping me,” Cassandra replied.

“QT should be doing her job and not playing around. She still has numerous files from the Agency to get through. How dare you take away from QT’s valuable time for whatever you were doing.”

“But…”Cassandra tried to reply.

“No buts, get off the table and get out. You are causing nothing but trouble.”

Cassandra slid off the table. She gathered up the box. She stopped in front of David.

“QT was only trying to help. You should not jump to conclusions without first finding out what is going on.”

“That is what I am trying to do.”

Cassandra walked out the door.
