With x-rays and the daily report in hand, Dr. Burt knocked on the King’s door.
The King’s most trusted ally, Lucius, also known as the King’s right hand, answered the door. “Yes?” he said as he carefully scrutinized Dr. Burt.
“I know this is a bit irregular but I wanted to give the King this information personally,” Dr. Burt said.
The King was standing in front of a large window, with his hands in the pockets of his casual Armani suit. A face to face with the King was indeed irregular and would have never been allowed, had it not been for the unusual circumstances. It was said that he was more protected than the President of the United States.
Not much was known about him and only those within the family had ever seen him but the word on the street was that he was a remarkably handsome man. A man’s opinion might differ from a woman’s but even his soldiers commented about his striking looks.
He didn’t turn as Dr. Burt began.
“Sir, I haven’t much in the way of new information but I wanted to give you what I have. I believe Roy has informed you that we ran fingerprints and found no record on file. Of course, unless she has a criminal record, was in law enforcement or had a concealed permit, nothing would.”
Dr. Burt didn’t know that Foy was a step ahead and had already erased all records of her fingerprints from the data bases.
There was no response from the King.
Dr. Burt continued.
“Aside from what you have already been told, there has been a development. It is my opinion that this woman has had plastic surgery to alter her looks at some point and it’s also my belief that the reason is from suffering unbelievable brutality of some sort.
I would guess her age to be in her early thirties and just from my point of view, she is exquisitely beautiful.”
There was silence from the King, who still hadn’t turned to look at Dr. Burt.
Clearing his throat, Dr. Burt said “I believe the blow to her head has caused total amnesia and in my medical opinion, I’m not sure she will recover any memories but I will continue to work with her, if that is your wish. Of course, there’s always the possibility that she’s a very good thespian but as I said, I believe her loss of memory is genuine.”
“I’ve seen a lot in my day and I usually know when I’m being played but I believe her when she says she has no memory of who she is or how she came to be on the yacht. I’ve used different tactics to try to ‘trip her up’ as it were but she has remained steadfast in that she remembers nothing.
There seems to be a great mystery surrounding her…who she is…why she was where she was…what happened to the companion she obviously had, but I just don’t have the answers right now. As I said, if it is your wish, I will continue to work with her and I have a suggestion.”
Dr. Burt suggested that she be allowed to leave her room and co-mingle with some of the staff. “You never know. She might form a bond with one of them and possibly confide in them. As I said. It’s just a suggestion.”
The King slightly turned his head and said “just find out who she is.”
