The Interns by the Tables.

The Interns by the Tables.


Cam waited politely for the Agent to leave, before paging Clark Edison, Wendell Bray, Vincent Nigel-Murray, and Arastoo Vaziri to the raised platform. Each had been there many times before, of course, but not together. While all were [had been? were still? would be?] interns of Dr. Brennan's, they were currently on low priority tasks, cleaning, sorting, and labeling more of the bones from the Sunnydale Crater, which had arrived about 6 months before.

She waited for the four men to join her in front of the tables where she had the remains of 'Caleb' and 'Anya Jenkins' placed. Mr. Edison was first, businesslike as usual. He was followed by Wendell and Vincent chatting with each other. She glanced at the clock, and settled back slightly. Mr. Vaziri was only just now finishing his prayers, and would be a moment getting to the area.

"Dr. Saroyan?"

"Yes, Mr. Bray?"

"Um, with Dr. Brennan taking a year off, do you know what is happening?" She could understand his concern - he had almost been removed for a lacking scholarship only a month or so previously.

"Not yet. I'm still searching for a replacement. However, until that replacement arrives, or I am told otherwise, we will continue as though you are still working here, same hours and timing. At least for now. Acceptable?"

"Yes, Ma'am." Ooh, so, like that, eh? She now knew who was going to partner with who.

Once Arastoo arrived, she began.

"Gentlemen. An interesting possible case has come up. These two sets of remains were ID'd earlier today. However, the behavior of the man IDing them, and the fact we were alerted that something was off about the situation by the FBI, leads me to want you to work on them. All have had the flesh removed, so my own skills are more limited, but this is what you are training to do. So, consider this a pop-quiz. I want you to work on these bones; Mr. Edison, Mr. Vaziri, you'll work on this set, and Mr. Nigel-Murray and Mr. Bray will work on that one. I want to know everything you can tell me about them. And, the sooner you can tell me, the better. I want everything you can tell me by tomorrow morning at 10."

She waited a moment, then, sharply, "Get to it, gentlemen!"

They split into the assigned pairs, and swept the bodies away. Vincent and Wendell took the bones of the smaller person, while Clark and Arastoo wheeled the remains of the larger bones to the other side of the working area.
