Mick’s notes Entry 1 Uh I am not much of a writer but I have to do this. Doctor Froman insisted. Yeah he is my shrink. Uh I am Mick Kerebuy and 29 years old and a doctor in the New Holstice grand hospital. I had terrible dreams, was tossing and turning in my bed when my brother Jim came in. He is – like me – a Dunai, 26 years old, a doctor and also gifted with feeling things. Jim hauled my sorry unwilling body to Froman’s treatment room after I was turning my bedding in a tangle of rumpled and torn sheets. Why did I have those nightmares? They began five days ago on melona 25. I had been treating a badly injured fire-fighter and went to my home. There I went to bed after making something for dinner and sleep came easily. And the dreams. The injured fire-fighter had me remembering my parents. I will tell you about them. I was three years old when I became an orphan. My parents were professional fire-fighters serving the New Holstice fire-department in firehouse 5. I was in the crèche with my baby-brother Jim that fateful day when some uneasy feeling had me toddling towards the room of the caretakers. I was standing in the doorpost and saw all on the holotube. Firehouse 5 was called to an accident. Children and their teacher were trapped in a burning schoolbuilding. My dad was the first to go inside with his mate and mom was on the second team that went searching for survivors in the school. They found the children and were able to get them out. But a teacher was missing some children. Three teams and a commander went back inside the school. I saw the building becoming engulfed in flames. Seven fire-fighters died that day. All children and teachers were saved. Investigations revealed that the missing children had escaped and had gone to their homes. Jim and I were sent to an orphanage that day. I have to go.
