You wobble your way outside. Fresh airm is nice, even if breathing hurts a bit right now. Elsie follows you, and Dave confronts you.
"You're going for a walk?"
"Actually, I was going for a drive. I had to walk to the car because I can't fly with my psychic mind powers yet."
"Man, I can understand getting restless, but there's a line that needs to be drawn. It gets drawn at about the point where you get yourself killed aggravating your injuries."
"Calm down, Dave."
"I'm perfectly calm. I just need you to comprehend that if you don't stay down to REST and HEAL on your own, I'm going to cuff you to your bed."
"Look, I'm just going to talk to my Mom. If it makes you feel better I'll take Elsie with me, she'll make sure I don't over extend myself."
"Alright. But if she tells you to back off, listen to her. If you don't, I'm going to go grab Mooch's dart gun and make sure you stay down."
With that, you and Elsie get in the car and cruise over to your Mother's house.
"So why visit her?"
"Make sure she's alright."
"Alright, we'll tell the guys that. Now what's the real reason? She hasn't magically become less capable since we last saw her."
"...Stuff. Some things I wanted to talk to her about, etc. And to make sure she's alright. It's not for her, it's for me. Remember how you said it's hard for you to sleep since Hope without me? I can't relax unless I know they're alright. It's just... after Hope, all I've got are my friends, my family, and my Core. That's all I have from my entire life. Some part of me needs to be reminded constantly that I haven't lost it yet."
