For the last ten minutes, Abbey had been sitting on the couch, reading Jed's medical record, waiting for him to return to his office. When he did return, he was just in time to see Abbey's eyes about pop out of her head.
"I see you got to the juicy stuff." Jed smiled, crossing the room. "Have you ever treated a person with MS before?"
"I've diagnosed some people before. But no, I haven't really treated anyone yet." Abbey said softly.
"Will it be a problem for you to treat someone with MS?"
"No, Sir. It shouldn't be."
"Okay." Jed smiled. "You understand that that is top secret information, right?"

"Okay." Jed sat down at his desk. "So are there any questions you have for me? Because right now would be the time to ask."
"No Sir, none that I can think of."

"It's just... when I asked Leo, yesterday, he said you should be the one to answer that question."
"I'm going to kill Leo." Jed said.
"I don't think you can do that, Sir." Abbey pointed out.
"That's what they all say. But what's the point of being the President, if you can't have your friends killed?"
"I don't know, Sir. Maybe to do good things, to help your country. And you never answered my question."
"What question would that be?" Jed stood up.
"What happened with your last doctor?"
