When Alex got back to his room, he sat down in a chair and studied the man in his bed.

He had nice features; high cheekbones, a small, straight nose, and a strong, angular jaw line. His hair was dark brown, and slightly wavy, though it was dirty at the moment.

Pushing back his hair to wash his face with a wet wash cloth, Alex noticed a small gash above the man's right eyebrow. He dabbed at the wound carefully, cleaning it as well as he could. The young man did not even wince, which was an indication that this was more serious than a drunken fool. He had more likely been drugged heavily.

Picking up some overdue paperwork, Alex tried to concentrate on it. Halfway through, he fell asleep, giving in to his exhaustion.


When Alex woke up the next morning, he was not in the chair. Looking around, he noticed he was in his brother's room. Sighing, he got up, used the restroom, and walked back into his own room. He saw Will sitting in the chair, finishing the paperwork he had been working on. He looked tired, like he had not slept at all.

"Hey," Alex touched Will lightly on the shoulder. "How is he?"

Will shook his head. "No change." He was silent for a moment, then he smiled at Alex. "I'm gonna take a short nap, then we can head over to the station, okay?"

Alex smiled. "Sounds good," he motioned toward the paperwork. "Thanks, by the way. I tried to finish it last night, but..."

"Yeah, I know. I finished it, because it needs to be turned in," Will grinned. "We can take it with us." He stood up and stretched. "I'll see you later. Wake me up in thirty minutes, if my alarm doesn't, please," he said, walking out.


When they got to the headquarters, the physician put the man on a stretcher and wheeled him into an examination room. He did not let anyone else in, mainly because he was planning on using his telepathy and did not want there to be any interference from other minds. Closing the door, he blocked out everyone, except the young man.


Nearly an hour later, the doctor came out, holding two glass vials. One was filled with blood, and the other with plasma. Turning to Alex and Will, he smiled.

"His blood appears to be clean, so I don't think he will be an immediate threat. However, we will know more when the drug clears out of his system. I'm gonna send these samples to the lab, and they can find out who he is."

Alex nodded. "So, do you think he may be a threat to S.T.A.R.?"

The older man sighed. "Possibly. We don't know where he came from, or what he's capable of, yet. We'll just have to keep on watching him."

Alex nodded, glancing at his brother. "I would like to be the one to watch him. I found him, so he's my responsibility."

Will laughed. "It sounds like you're talking about a stray dog."

Alex shrugged, grinning. "He is a stray. I just don't know if he's an animal."

The doctor smiled. "I hope not."
