Teresa barely noticed the man had not reacted to her, as it was kind of what she had expected. She had met many doctors and all the good ones had not reacted to her body. At least not to her mere body. Something that was only to be expected in a profession where you had to look at naked bodies all day. It would have been more shocking if he actually had responded.
In a way Teresa had the same problem. She had seen so many bodies naked, the thrill of it was kind of gone. Not in the sensual way though -albeit that was not a minor number either- a, long, long time ago she had been the second wife to some sultan in the far east. For some reason it had been her job to shop for slaves. For the love of something, she could not remember whether the job was dumped on her or she fought for it. In any case it had been her job to ‘scout’ all the new meat, most of the time quite literally. She understood why the doctor had not responded. In a way it was more intriguing that the succubus did not respond. The silver eyed witch had met a few succubus in her time and heard even more about them, but this one did not act like anything she had come to expect.
Regardless her attention was soon drawn upon the doctor again anyway. She simply nodded to his enquiry why she was here and for ten minutes barely moved as he was waving some kind of magical device all around her. It was easy to ignore and at the very least he was being thorough.
It was as she had come to expect though. Due to her condition her body was almost always in immaculate state. It was what all the doctors had found. Well those she had not visited after having been in combat… or recently poisoned. Eventually her body usually sorted itself out, but it tended to take it’s sweet time. “I am glad to hear that and I am pleased you are taking this seriously.”
She said gracefully as she erected herself again. She was almost ready to get up and thank the good doctor, when suddenly the doctor announced a second round of tests.
[color:6668=redOkaayyyy… that is new.
She thought to herself as she relaxed again and shifted her weight around to make herself comfortable again. As mr. Faustein investigated her for a very long time, one of her cheeks almost feel asleep and she had to shift a few times to avoid the annoying pins and needles that always followed. He was doing some of the stuff she was familiar with, trying to blind her with a light, checking if her neck vertebrae were working by jerking her chin. She was about done with the entire charade, when suddenly he began talking again.
What he said though astonished her thoroughyl. Thirtheen hundred and sixty four years, nine hundred thirty one doctors and this guy was the first to guess the problem. Even without hints.“I see your reputation is more then deserved, mis- doctor Faust.”
She said with slightly trembling eyes as she snapped her fingers and reequipped back into her normal body suit. It was not that she minded being naked, but if she had to be, she preferred it in a place were it wasn’t so cold. It felt as if her nipples could cut glass at this moment. Plus she really missed the magical flask that came equipped at her hip with that outfit. “You are correct. I am effectively immortal, at the very least biologically. Are you familiar with the forms of immortality?”
She asked as she reached for the flask that was now bound to her hip again and lifted it, unscrewing the cap in a single practiced motion. “I definetely have longevity, I am over a thousand years old. Also definitely regeneration, yet possibly also not regeneration. I have never dared cut of my head to try confirm that theory.”
She said calmly as she took a big sip of the flask, filling her mouth with delicious raspberry schnapps. “I am pretty sure it is neither parasitic or undead though.”
She said after having savored the liquor for a moment, before swallowing it. As she continued she held out the flask to the god doctor to offer him some as well, in case he could use a drink. “I am very doubtful it could be reliant. I have traveled all over the world and got stuck in the nether dimensions for a few years, without change. Of course the last two are ridiculous, godhood and complete immortality.”
She finished as she pulled out a cigarette from her breast pocket.
In a way it was ridiculous. Technically she was incapable of getting physically addicted to substances. Her body renewed itself completely over the duration of three days. Yet she still got all the symptoms of addiction if she did not smoke or drink for a while. “In any case I am wondering if you would like to try and find out together what could cause this.”
She said dead serious as she sat down in the chair again, cigarette in one hand, the flask in the other and gently crossing her leg to get even more comfortable. “If such a thing interests you of course doctor, I would not dare to presume immortality would be of interest to you.”
She finished with a faint smile.
