Introducing The Windigo, Page 6

This is a continuation of the continuing story of Cassie Greenaway, a.k.a. “The Windigo”, Introducing The Windigo, Page 2 -Page 3,  Page 4, Page 5, Page 6.

-----------------------------------------------

Nota Bene:

Introducing The Windigo was awarded an Honourable Mention and Writer’s Award in the Original Character Contest - WINNERS, sponsored by Disabled-dArtist. Congratulations to Everyone and Thanks.

------------------------------------------------

Foreword:

Cassie Greenaway was a Graduate Student, at University College, specializing in Organic Agriculture, specifically Companion Planting, and The “Three Sisters”, the main crops grown by some Native American nations: winter squashmaize (corn), and climbing beans (typically tepary beans or common beans).

While her allergies, asthma and sensitivities were manageable, another student, was making her sick with her perfume, and contaminating her specimens.

As a result of that, she was transformed and changed into “The Windigo”, as the media had dubbed her.

After she appeared at the UN, urging the delegates to act on Climate Change and protecting Treaty Rights, Clean Water, Air Quality, and Organic Foods, she went to her Aunt Carol’s condo in the city. Dr. Carol is a Naturopathic Doctor.

Now, Dr. Carol and Cassie’s Grandmother, Emily, are trying to get her to the E.E.H.U. (Emergency Environmental Health Unit), at the Nova Clinic, to see Dr. Astor, an Immunologist, to get Cassie the medical attention she needs, before the media or the authorities track her down.

Memo:

Cassie and the other characters and scenarios are my original.

Nota Bene- There is a continuity error between Page 7 and Page 6.

I couldn’t find Portal to Narnia, by Can-Cat (from Lead Me To Narnia, by feainne-stock), which is a framed print on the wall in Page 6.

So, it has been swapped for “Perspective” [WIP], from A castle window, by RavensLane.

I can’t wait to see what will happen next.

Episode, Page 7:

When Carol got to her condo, her Mum, Emily told her Cassie was getting rinsed off, after suddenly disappearing from the bedroom, while she was talking to her, a few minutes earlier.

Then, she had materialized at the UN; and, then just as suddenly reappeared, in the bedroom.

Carol shook her head, dumbfounded, “I’ve already called in a friend, Dr. Astor. She’s an Immunologist. She has her own office, Nova Clinic. She specializes in difficult cases.

“I’m going to see if she can see Cassie, right away.”

Carol thought for a moment. Then, she tapped the comm link [communications link] on her ID badge to access her AI- PA [Artificial Intelligence- Personal Assistant], “Jeannie, grant access to my Mum, Emily, as a G2 Level Driver, please.”

“Yes, Doctor,” a woman voice, with a light, Oxbridge accent responded.

“Who’s that?” Emily asked. She thought she knew all the staff at her daughter’s office. But, this was a new voice.

“Jeannie is a computer interface. She runs the AI in the car, my calendar, contacts, and parts of the office,” Carol explained.

“Mum, you need to say something, so she can get a voice print,” she explained.

“Um, hello, Jeannie,” Emily said.

“Hello, Emily. May I call you ‘Emily’?” The computer replied.

“Um, yes, of course,” Emily answered, feeling a little awkward, talking to a disembodied computer voice.

“Thank you, Emily,” Jeannie said “Voice print registered, Doctor.”

“Thanks, Jeannie,” Carol said. Fishing in her bag, she pulled out a Guest ID badge, and activated it with a thumb print.

“Here, Mum, you’ll need this ID badge to access the car controls and get into the clinic offices,” Carol explained.

“That is a lot of new security,” Emily said, dismayed.

Carol bit her lip, “These protocols have been in place, for a while, actually. Dr. Astor helped set them up, in case of an emergency. And, I would say this qualifies.”

Emily raised her hands, “No argument here,” she agreed. “But, who’s this Dr. Astor? Do I know her?” She asked.

“Her sister was Izzy,” Carol explained. “She was also a doctor; but, more of a researcher.”

Emily gasped, “Her?” Carol nodded. “But, she was mixed up with all those goings on at the NSI [National Science Institute].”

“’Je me souviens’, [I remember],” Carol said.

“Is that the best place for Cassie?” Emily wondered.

“I think so,” Carol said. “I better call Dr. Astor, to see if she can work Cassie in right away.”

Emily nodded, “I’ll go see how Cassie’s doing.”

 “Okay,” Carol agreed, “let’s get going.”

It has been an arduous process and on-going process.

From Web.MD, Environmental Illness Overview

An environmental illness can occur when you are exposed to toxins or substances in the environment that make you sick. These health hazards may be found where you live, work, or play.

 Exposure to toxic chemicals can cause a wide range of common medical problems or exasperate other conditions.

Early treatment includes reducing your exposure to what is making you sick.

Such as improving the air quality by getting rid of the source of pollution, or with air filters, not allowing smoking in your environment, decreasing mold, etc.
