The pokemon centre was chaotic, of course, Scarlett was supposed to expect that, especially with the world being a dangerous one of constant battles and stuff. She was thankful she'd be able to help out in the backlines, it was something to do and... helping was kinda cool. A hand would work its way through her hair as she trailed after Sid, turning into a room with an x-ray machine. A small notepad was quickly taken out of one of Scarlett's pockets and she managed to snag a pen from a nearby desk. Oh- wait they were... going into a sideroom? Oh! Right yeah, the room where you conduct stuff so the radiation doesn't get to you. She knew that.
Still, she quickly jotted down the functionalities of each room just incase and then turned to Sid once they were finished their tour. "So... how exactly would you go about taking an X-Ray? Like, the core settings? And... if it were say an important-er part of the ppkemon, like the head, would there be specific safety precautions we'd undertake?"
Scarlett had had X-Rays done herself, sure. She'd fallen off a deck while drunk at a party and broke her collarbone once, and broken her elbow attempting to show a partygoer at a different party how to do a handstand when she herself couldn't do a handstand, slamming into a table and having it collapse on her... but! Pokemon X-Rays were probably different, and she hadn't covered them too much yet in class.
She attempted a smile once her questions were answered and the Chansey was released, she'd take observations from here and notes as neccesary..

The sounds of the chaos in the PokeCenter didn’t even fully register to Sid right then as they focused. There was only so much they could do, and worrying about the things other nurses were doing would only limit that further. For now, they remained focused on assessing the X-ray and subsequent break.
Scarlett’s questions were good ones, and Sid paused to consider them carefully. After a moment, they gave a small nod and started to describe the ways in which weighted mats and the like could be placed on specific areas to shield the patient depending on the concern. It was a bit long and detailed, but Sid wanted to be exact. Thereafter, they waited for the print out, grabbed it, and checked it carefully…
“As you can see… it’s a clean break. It will actually be a lot easier to set this way…” they spoke making a small gesture to the x-ray printout. “We just have to cast it, and she should be good to go.” And of course she’d have to stay off her foot for a while, but Pokemon healed much faster than humans did. Making sure everything was turned off again, they went around to check on the Chansey. She was giving them a sort of pitiful expression, and Sid forced a smile. “Don’t worry, we can set it, and you’ll just have to rest for a while. Gambatte….” Reaching up a hand, they gently pat her head very briefly before returning her and starting to a regular room to set the break. “Have you casted before, by chance?” they asked as they stepped into the new room.
The Chansey seems slightly less cheery than usual. Which, by Chansey standards, means it must be in one dour mood! The procedure has been going smoothly enough, but perhaps a bit of good bedside manner might return the pep to its step?
Casting a limb for a trained nurse? Easy. But it was a lot less easy when all of the plaster was missing! Who could be responsible for this? Perhaps the red eyes and golden glimmer peeking out under the bed might have some clues . . . a clue starting with "ya" and rhyming with "task!"
The Chansey was nervous, or... at least Scarlett thought she was?! And that in the long run could kinda suck if she freaked out in the midst of the x-ray or soemthing.Thankfully, Sid's explanations and responses to her questions filled her in on all was neccesary and she found herself yet again scribbling away a few more notes before being content. The X-Ray was then conducted and Scarlett ensured she got a peak at the results, moving next to Sid and nodding as he pointed out the clean break... that was kinda a yikes, the poor Chansey.
But! That was what nurses were here for or whatever. "...Casting." She echoed, as she followe Sid over to the Chansey's side, a kinda shitty attempt at a reassuring smile meeting her lips. "..What they said. You'll be all good in no-time if you take a breather and stuff." Good nursing, Scarlett. Gold star.
Once more she followed Sid out the room, holding her notes to her chest and keeping an eye on the area around her before coming into the new room. Asher stayed at her heel, curiously crying every so often in intrigue. "I've done a test cast or two in class, if that counts?" And it actually turned out pretty damn good, or at least... she assumed it did. Teacher didn't hate on it, so it was cool.
She had waited a few seconds for Sid to find the plaster, only pausing for a moment at a peculiar red that seemed to be shining out from somewhere... that was odd, right? "Uh... are there any special electric equiptment under the bed in pokemon centres that i'm not aware of? I wasn't briefed on anything of the sort..."

Nurse remained quiet behind Sid. He wanted to help but knew his own strengths and limitations when it came to certain bedside manner. It was best to leave that to Sid, and thus he did. He walked along silently as Sid moved to the next room. Once they were in, however, he immediately started over to the cabinets to look for what they needed for the procedure.
“Ah that’s good,” Sid hummed a little back to Scarlett. “You should do fine then.” Casting wasn’t hard, just a lot of bandage padding, wraps, and plaster. It wasn’t something overly technical like a machine, simple and easy to work with. They then turned and found Nurse staring at them with a pensive look. “What’s wrong?” they asked. Nurse made a directional point, and it was Sid’s turn to look for the missing items. They managed to find the padding, bandages but…. “Huh, are we out of plaster???” they asked. Nurse gave a small noise. He didn’t think so. That didn’t make sense.
Sid fidgeted slightly at Scarlett’s question and turned to look at her and then under the bed at the glowing red eye below it. That was… that was ominous. The fact Nurse was quickly coming to stand between them and whatever it was was also a key sign of worry. “Scarlett, be careful, whatever it is isn’t….” Isn’t technical or mechanical. Nurse gave a small cry, a warning. Come out right now or else he’d! He’d do something!
The Chansey can tell that you're trying your best, and has eased somewhat. It even shoots a curious glance under the bed, giving the Yamask beneath a "not mad, just disappointed" frown. Between it and Nurse, the good-cop bad-cop routine has taken effect.
The Yamask, bound up in bundles of bandages and presenting a package of purloined plasters, crawls out from under the bed. Guilt wavers in its red eye.

The red lights were kinda menacing, and Scarlett was half tempted to get on her hands and knees just to have her curiosity sated, though as Sid spoke the girls eyes widened somewhat- oh shit. It wasn't like... a thing that was supposed to be there? Damn, shit, isn't that like, a security breach or, uh... uhm... Nurse and Chansey seemed to be quick to lure it out, however, whatever the lights were, and Asher stayed by Scarlett's side, vines wacking at the air warily, as if wanting to help but not knowing specifically what to do.
And then the Yamask appeared. They didn't look menacing, or mean, they looked... sad... guilty. It tugged on Scarlett's heartstrings a little bit, but only a little, because this thing was also a menace that stole nursing equiptment. Her lip curled slightly and she pushed a hand through her hair. "Asher, grab the plasters for me?" Asher gladly whipped out his vines, happy to help however he could, and trotted up to Sid with the items.
Scarlett's gaze however didn't leave the Yamask... "I wonder where they came from..." A hand pushed through her hair, "Possibly a patient?" Of course, they had bigger tasks to deal with, but there was a chance the Yamask could still fuck up everything. She started towards them then, being as careful as she could. "...Is your trainer here?" It... perhas didn't come off as nursely, and there was a certain bite to her tone she couldn't hold back, but she was trying!

As the Yamask revealed itself, Sid let out a slow breath they hadn’t realized they’d been holding. What a strange child wrapped in bandages and holding plaster. As the Bulbasaur took the plaster and handed it to them, Sid sighed softly. “Thank you,” they murmured. Now what to do with this little guy. Was he wild? Did he belong to someone else here at the center? They had certainly never seen him her before….
It seemed Scarlett was willing to take up the mantle of figuring out, though. There really didn’t need to be two hands on that, either. Turning, they smiled a little at Nurse and the Chansey instead. “Hey, let’s get that foot bandaged up…” they encouraged the Chansey towards the soft exam table so that they could prep the plaster and the wrapping. Grabbing some extra padding from another drawer, they were pretty sure they were ready to go now.
Eyes flicked to Scarlett again. She had said that she’d already done this a couple of times in school, so it really didn’t need to be taken step by step. Looking back at the Chansey again, Sid smiled and started setting her foot gently. “I’m sorry this is going to hurt a little, but we have to make sure those bones are in place first…” they murmured. Nurse stood beside them looking up at the Chansey with a meaningful look of reassurance. Things were going to be ok.
Words: 261 Rolling for Nursing skill up is always the first roll in a job.
The Yamask tilts its head curiously. Trainer? Huh? No. It shrugs, doing a few curious orbits around Scarlett to try and figure out what her dealio is.
While the procedure doesn't give Sid much further insight into the medical arts (skill roll failed ;;), it does give the Chansey a well set bone! They cringe a little at the pain, but are all smiles once everything's put into place.
Asher was on standby incase any help was needed from him, his vines retracting as he bounces from one foot to another. As Sid worked to bandage and help set the Chansey's bone, Scarlett half wanted to help, however she had a different task- the task of figuring out this Yamask's origins. She found her head following the Yamask's curious movements, her hands shifting to adjust her nurse skirt slightly as her lips pressed together. "...How long have you been in here... Uh... Do you want to get out?"
Eyes moved back to Sid momentarily, hearing the gathering of the materials and watching as they went throught the effort to begin setting the pokemons foot before properly casting. It was truly professional, the way they were conducting things. Maybe... she'd be like this one day or whatever, Chinami would be so proud of her. Probably give her like fifty different bouquets on graduation day-
Oh. She was getting sidetracked. She shrugged her shoulders a little and after nodding at The Chansey turned her attention back to the Yamask. "We should take you out of here... or something, see if you recognise your surroundings..." Head tilted for a moment, she blinked... hm. Gaze flicked back to Sid then. "You need any help?"
The soft trill of pain from the Chansey could easily have snapped Sid’s heart to pieces had they not been trained for this sort of thing. A well set bone would heal well. They just had to remind themselves of that. Nurse the Audino, meanwhile, eased the pain a bit by forming a Heal Pulse and gently pressing it into the Chansey just for better effect. The Chansey let out a soft coo at that at least.
Their eyes flickered to Scarlett as she spoke, and a small nod was given. “If you wouldn’t mind dipping some of the gause in the plaster, I can wrap it better that way rather than do both…” If she agreed, they’d start doing the casting. Wrapping first the gause padding that gave some give to the cast, Sid then got the actual heavy duty wrapping gauze and gave a small instruction on how to dip it effectively in the plaster before handing the task off to Scarlett. Thereafter, they went to work. It was relatively short, easy, painless.
“There… now we just have to let it sit for a little, Chansey…” Sid smiled once they were done. Their eyes then went to the Yamask again. “We could probably just let it out if it is wild… maybe it got lost somehow…. Ghost types do faze through things…” Which made barriers for such things a bit hard.
Sid's instructions should be simple. Dip the gauze in the plaster, then wrap... what's this? As you attempt to carefully lift out the plaster-covered bandage, you see that the Yamask has become hopelessly tangled up in it. Damn ghosts and their tendency to phase through things.
