In the wake of Scylla’s rage-driven flood, many realms were forced to take in Felnovian refugees by the droves. Given the rushed execution of these evacuations, traveling conditions were cramped, to say the least.

In spite of the best attempts by healers, doctors, alchemists, and mages, several otherwise rare diseases including Yellow Fever, Malaria, Dengue Fever, and West Skyfeather have started to spread like wildfire among the unsanitary conditions brought about by the hasty intake of all these refugees, which had forced them all into cramped quarters. Soon thereafter, the healers became lepers, and the alchemists needed quarantine.

***

A healer’s job was never easy, but this was a nightmare. For every child he managed to prolong the life of another miserable day, it seemed two more refugees were brought into their Ristellian settlement, and six more came down with one of the diseases ailing the land. If they were lucky, a room would free itself up. It was rare that they opened up because a patient was successfully healed. More often than not, it was because they had succumbed and were now loaded onto a cart headed to Six knows where.

He wiped from the sweat from his brow. The Ristell suns had no mercy, even in these dire times. He had been working around the clock to serve each new batch of refugees - with no end in sight. It was taking a toll on his health for sure. He had to stay healthy. He had to persevere in spite of his coughing. As he wiped his mouth with the cloth on his head, he looked at the cloth.

It was tinted red with a spattering of blood.
