wounded head by the flicking light of an oil-lamp held aloft by Nellie
; his fingertips probe the scabbed over wound and with an unsatisfied clucking of his tongue he lifts each of the unconscious youth's eyelids. "I think we have done all we can for the lad, there is no evidence of a fractured skull ... head wounds can be tricky, someone at Trinity can summon a doctor." Jonathan
then covers the wound back up and takes his seat again.
A few moments later the carriage pulls up having reached the Great Gate
on Trinity Street
, "Righto, we're 'ere."
and he ties off the reins and jumps down from his perch. Roxburgh
clambers down, before he can do anything else the side door in the Great Gate
opens and the familiar figure of Inspector Harcourt
steps out, closely followed by Magsworthy
and then a Police Constable. Harcourt
starts to speak but is beaten to it by Roxburgh "Ahh... Magsworthy..."
he booms "Please summon medical assistance, we have Edward Ponsonby in the carriage... he has been hurt in an accident."
he carries on ignoring the spluttering
has opened the carriage door and helped the ladies alight, "Gawd, 'e looks in a right state, I do 'ope 'e ain't bleedin' all over my seats!"
the cab-driver sound quite alarmed.
With an encouraging nod from Roxburgh
the College Porter disappears back into the gate house.Harcourt
steps over to the carriage and pulls Alf
out of the way and peers inside.. "This looks very serious.."
with those words you are aware of the Police Constable stepping over to stand behind you "So then... what happened here then?" Harcourt
asks, pulling out his notebook from his coat pocket.
