I let the healers look me over, yet again. I hate this kind of thing. The sterile walls, the close, scrutinizing eyes.
It feels just like the Ordo.
"Are you finished?" I finally ask, my patience having long since expired.
The head healer frowns as she lowers her head to stare at me, and I can tell no matter what she says in return, the exam is far from over.
"In such a hurry to leave? You were lucky to have survived that, child." Her voice is kind, regardless of whatever ulterior motives she has.
"I just... I'd like to get some rest, outside." I shrug, hoping to not give off any tells that she can read.
Her face just grows closer, more concerned, and more scrutinizing.
"Care to tell me about why your mind is so fragmented?" She asks after a long pause, cocking her head in puzzlement.
"Fragmented?" I ask, not knowing what it is she's leading on about.
"Broken up, not whole." She continues, pressing for information.
"Sorry, but I don't know what you're talking about." I stand back up, turning for the door, when a hand on my shoulder stops me.
"You may not know, but I do. Tell me, did they have someone, a pscher... Did they..." I push her hand off of my shoulder roughly, shaking my head as I do.
"I don't want to remember any of that."
"Want to or not, child, one day it will happen. Those pieces will join and you will be left with it all intact once more."
"...Whatever." I push open the door, moving quicker than I'd originally thought. With a shaking hand I light up again.
