"Yeah, they know up front... that's why he doesn't have any patients, probably," Pharmaceuti added. Cosmo just shrugged, but that could very well be the real root of his poor customer base.
While they were bantering, Calistheti returned a simple "okay!" to Hyde's question. She ought to know her way around easily enough to return to the right office quickly. On the other hand, PhotoMan was less certain:
That is reassuring... perhaps Bonesaw is only covered in data because her profession demands it. She will spot me as soon as I exit cover. I am going to engage with her for a bit and have her guide me to the correct room. Please handle the shoot on your own for now.
"Your hat? I believe you look better without it," Cosmo offered unhelpfully, ever quick to sieze upon aspects of one's appearance he thought needed changing. Her question caused the two siblings to look at each other with raised eyebrows. "Yes, Bonesaw, our sister, remains close to us. We see her all the time, of course. We rarely go to her place of business though... it's eeeeh... not a very comfortable office, comparee to mine or my sisters'."
"Yeah... even Psychologi's isn't that bad compared to hers. But Bonesaw is, again, the one making the money, so she must be doing something right," Pharmaceuti repeated. "She has a lot of clients too... and not all of them come through the front lobby. A lot of them beam straight to her. Frankly they all look kinda of... what's the word...?" she muttered, first adjusting her glasses with a political pause, then, apparently unable to divine her answer, popping out two more pills onto the palm of her hand and sticking them into her mouth.
"They certainly need cosmetic surgery, in the average case," Cosmo answered, still smiling.
"No one needs cosmetic surgery, that's why it's distinguished as cosmetic!" Pharmaceuti jabbed at him. "As for Bonesaw, she isn't dangerous or anything. Just creepy. Her patients all leave glowing reviews after their treatment... which proves they're alive, if nothing else. In the average case, anyway." Cosmo nodded along; "in the average case" was starting to seem like their catch phrase.
Hyde sent a quick, mildly unprofessional message to PhotoMan, then headed back to Psychologi's office. There, she would find only Psychologi, now dressed back into a professional pant-suit combo. She looked so stately one could almost wipe the diaper image out of one's mind... almost. "Hm? Did you want to.... be seen, after all?" Psychologi asked, then made quite a point of bending over, sticking her bottom out while she picked up one of the inappropriately shaped pens from earlier. Hyde's hat was where she left it.
With no sign of PhotoMan, nor a response yet, Hyde would have to wing it herself. Calistheti hadn't appeared yet either, though one could assume that was only because she had already gone to Cosmo's office.
