When Kat sat down all eyes turned to Peg. She was wearing a white coat that was warm and also looked enough like a doctor’s coat to put people at ease when they came to see her for medical advice. She stood up. ‘Bea has symptoms similar to The Malady. She has a fever, aching joints, vomiting, fainting spells. It’s possible she just has the flu but at this point, in this place we can’t be sure and can’t be too careful. I vote yes.’
Kat stood up and walked out without looking back.
Peg sat down, ‘God damn it.’
