A House on the Edge of Town
After some walking, you arrive at the house the serving girl had mentioned. The sound of calliope music is in the air.

Hedda walked up to the door and knocked.

"Did someone need a doctor?" she called.

A grizzled, yet handsome man answered the door.

"What'd you say?" he asked.

"Well, Letta, the serving maid at the inn, said that there was someone here who needed a doctor's care," said Hedda.

The man brought a finger to his lips.

"Come in," he said opening the door.

Hedda entered.

"So, where's the patient?" she asked.  "And what can you tell me about their condition?"

"It's me," the man said as he pulled up the sleeve on his shirt. You can see that his arm is covered in bandages.

"Okay, that could be worse," said Hedda.  Probably true.  "What happened?  What kind of injury is that?"

The man was acting like he wanted to keep it secret, which was worrying...

"I burnt it," the man said as he began to undo the bandages. There were a few bits of burnt skin and lots of redness. There were pockets of dried blood as well.

Hedda made sympathetic noises.

"Easier if I'd been here right after it happened," she said, "but I'm sure I can at least help it heal.  At least your burns weren't more severe-- hot metal can burn down to the bone, and medicine can only do so much.  You were right to keep it bandaged, though."

"Do what you must."

You manage to fix up the arm to the best of your ability. The man looked at it before asking.

"How much do I owe you?"

Hedda considered the man, his position, her needs... the state of commerce in a village like this.

"Re-shoe my horses," she said.  "That's the price."

"Have you heard anything about the Carnival?" Hedda asked, as she packed up her supplies.  "I haven't been to anything like that in years..."

"Well, fair enough," said Hedda.  "I'll tell Letta that you're all right later on.  Just be careful with the wounds, all right."

She departed, planning on investigating the carnival.  Perhaps it would be fun!  ...Or she might find someone needing help.  So-called "Freaks" were something that often needed help.
