Hello Tink? May I call you that?

From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
Are you available? Actually I have an odd request.
To Dr Watson:
sure . . what do you need?
From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
Well… we’ve asked Phil about anyone he might know or trust…
From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
…and he mentioned you.
From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
Would you be available to chat with him briefly?
To Dr Watson:
sure …I asked about him a few minutes ago
From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
It would reassure people about his wellbeing.
From Dr Watson in Kirel Neighborhood:
I’ll send you an invitation to a neighborhood the DRC uses.

You can close the door and the conversation is private.

To phend:
do you believe them when they say “a few more days?”
phend:

phend:
he is a friend
To phend:
do you believe Dr Kodama?
phend:
he doesn’t talk to me much
phend:
i don’t know him
To phend:
he struck me as one who speaks directly … says what he means
phend:
yes
To phend:
well … are they feeding you … taking care of you properly?
To phend:
a place to sleep if you need it?
phend:
when i leave i will find you again - is that alright

Dr Watson:

To phend:

Dr Watson:
I trust Phil was helpful?
Tink:
Dr Watson … can I ask YOU a question, too?
Dr Watson:
of course
Tink:
Not truly sure … hope so …
Tink:
What has been worrying you about phil?
Tink:
He seems as loopy as ole Tink … not particularly goofy clinically
Dr Watson:
He’s a friend who’s been gone for a year - and he’s returned…not quite himself
Tink:
How is he different?
Dr Watson:
he always had a special concern for…the D’ni - but not as you see him now
Dr Watson:
and like you said - there’s something just not quite right
Tink:
The D’ni … I have VERY mixed feelings about them …
Tink:
how did he feel about them?
Dr Watson:
I’m concerned at two levels - personally…for my friend and colleague
Dr Watson:
and professionally for the sake of the restoration
Tink:
I didn’t say there was something different . . you did, sir
Dr Watson:
I’d love to discuss this more but we do really need to get going
Tink:
Can we talk again sometime?
Dr Watson:
Thank you for your time Tink and understanding
Tink:
Talk again to me sometime …
Tink:
later mr engberg?
Michael Engberg:
yes
Michael Engberg:
Thanks tink
Tink:
Oh! Is this to be kept with Tink … or passed on?
Dr Watson:
Michael be sure to convey my congratulations to Victor on the clock by the way.
Michael Engberg:
thanks
Dr Watson:
Tink please pass on the truth to those who are worried
Tink:
Dr Watson … can I pass this on to others?
Tink:
OK … thought I needed to ask
Michael Engberg:
Tink, this has helped more then you know.
Dr Watson:
we want people to know Phil is OK
Tink:
