Victoria was against the hospital's bureaucratic system and knew exactly how to go about getting the child treatment without having the problem of the child not having money, insurance or an uptown residency.

Koris shared a hospital room with the boy, and yet according to the system; Koris was the only one in the room.

"Let me tell you, " Doctor Lauffer began in clear Mandarin as she paced the room, "that boy is incredibly lucky that you two share a blood type. I could not go under the radar if I took blood from the actual blood bank or cloned the boy's own blood."

Koris nodded along dazedly. He had had to donate quite a large sum of blood to help the little child.

His wife was going to be furious with him, but not as mad as the House of Oxen heads would be. He had missed out on the group photo that was supposed to be taken and that would not give them good publicity.

Nikhita was silent.

"Not a big expensive one, " Koris reassured her. "Just maybe a few paper posters."

"Err. I don't know. Why are you asking me?"

"Because I want to run my idea by somebody I trust will be honest before I suggest it to the heads. I was thinking about trying to get the downtowner vote seeing as I doubt I'll be getting any uptowner votes."

"It's not a bad idea, it's just that fact that I don't think there's any way for downtowners to vote."

"Don't they have electronic voting booths?"
