The Abbot winced as the nurse applied disinfectant to the cut above his eye.

“I think my mistake was laughing” he said, “it seemed to irritate her most unreasonably.”

“Hold still, I'm nearly finished and I don't want to hurt you.” said the nurse.

“That's good” said the Abbot, slipping his hand under the nurses habit, “I don't want to hurt you either...”. The nurse pause what she was doing and looked him directly in the eye. He smiled.

A scream echoed around the quadrangle and a small group of friars turned to look at its source, the infirmary, and saw the new Abbot limp out and scuttle across to his quarters.

“Bitch!”he said and sat down to check his emails. There was one from the strange Mr Justice:
