The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Klyde struggled to eat. He need not have. He might be injured and sentenced to spend Lord Ruler knew how long in this mist-cursed bed, but at least he was not some sort of invalid. No, Klyde's struggle was not a physical one (though his bandages did itch whenever he moved). It was the damned food!

Look at this slop! Klyde thought as he choked down another bite. He had grown up in the slums, the priviliged side of the slums, but the slums were still the slums, but nothing he had eaten there had prepared him for the slop they called hospital food.

Yesterday had been better. The bitter old harridan he had then thought of as 'nice doctor lady' had been giving him laudanum then, for the pain. Now she was saying he had recovered enough not to need it. What does that humourless wraith know about need? he thought bitterly. What he needed right then was a stiff drink! Unfortunately, even if one of the women who were currently in the process of oppressing him would consent to get him one, none of them were even around to beg from. Cray, Delissia, even Nessa and Zincell, wherever they had wandered off too, were all the same. All out to make life difficult for him. Lord Ruler! A man would think a woman would at least have the decency to stick around so he could at least try to get himself a drink.

Who am I kidding? Klyde thought as he forced down another bite of the flavourless glop. Humanity only extends to the doorways of hospitals, and then runs away screaming. Yes, those women couldn't be human, for what human would abandon Klyde in this hell with that food.

Klyde hated hospitals.

Zincell snuck into the clinic carefully. There didn't seem to be any obligators. Good. She walked over to Klyde and waved to him a quiet hello before sitting on the floor by his bed, trying to become invisible from the greatest number of angles.

"How are you doing?" She asked with a cringe. "Got you a baywrap if you want..."

Klyde jumped when Zincell spoke, making his bandages itch and causing him to spill his slop all over himself and his bed.

"Lord Ruler!" He swore, "Deepness-cursed, ash-blasted, mistwraith-eaten, Lord bloody Ruler! Don't sneak up on me like that," he shouted, turning to face Zincell for the first time. Honestly, couldn't she see he was injured? Well that confirms it, she really is trying to kill me. "Are you trying to k . . . Is that a baywrap?" Klyde, suddenly feeling more polite, gave Zincell his best innocent expression and eyed the offered wrap hungrily.

"Yes sir." She said with a cringe. She didn't think she's been that good, and an experienced thief like him should have seen her. Then again, he was hurt. She looked around for a new blanket or something, to replace the one that was spilled.

"Fresh and delicious." She added, offering it to him.

Klyde grabbed the wrap greedily from Zincell's hands, not caring that his injuries twinged unpleasantly with the motion. He tried to savour the food, the flavours, the smells, but his appetite got the better of him and he soon found his hands empty.

"Well?" he said, paying Zincell the first attention he had given her since grabbing the bay wrap. "Did you bring more, or were you just intending to stare at me from here on out?"

"I..." She paused and produced another one that she's been saving for later. "Here." She said, offering it to him.

Klyde took the baywrap and began munching, more leisurely this time. He hadn't expected Cell to actually have a second wrap, he was just being disagreeable. That said, he wasn't about to turn down free food when it was offered so nicely.

"So," he said in between bites, "Are you just going to stare at my all day, or do you have something to say?"

"Well, there was a nobleman earlier today that offered a kind of job, I think." She said. "Should I go buy more baywraps?"

Klyde wrestled between his inner desires, one telling him to ask about whatever nobleman Zincell was babbling about, the other compelling him to choose whatever option led to more food as soon as possible.

In the end, his reason won out over his appetite, though by a slim margin. "Nobleman? Who told you to approach a nobleman for the Lord Ruler's sake? Do you know what they can do? What if he had you tailed or something?" Klyde made some more disagreeable noises as he thought about what to do next. He was reacting badly, he could tell. He needed time to process everything, and perhaps to get more real food in him. If Zincell had a real job on the line, perhaps it bore more thought.

"This had better not just be some crush," he growled. "I need time to think out a next move, and how this fits in. Go and come back with more food," his stomach gurgled victoriously, "And we will discuss this noble and your conduct when you return."

"Yes, sir." She said with a slight frown and headed out.
