Brother's Keeper: Sanguis

Another old 100 word story update.  A continuation of Brother's Keeper, returning to the Doctor and his gruesome work in the laboratory.  

Enjoy.







13 Doctor:  Sanguis

      The problem with bringing back a person from the dead was that it simply could not be done without help from the living; help in replenishing the parts that have died, and help in piecing together those parts.

      I go through a mental list of materials on hand. Along with the gravedigger’s latest haul, my supplies should be sufficient.

      Buckets set on the floor beneath the hanging specimens were half filled with crimson liquid.

               ... Drip... 

                           ...Drip... 

               ...Drip... 

      ... Came the sound...

      I would need to exhaust that resource, I note ruefully. Time to kill the few subjects that were kept alive.
