Eventually, Elle had leaned back onto the bed, curled away from Ava, watching the IV drip. The sandwiches have been consumed and the packages discarded. X is sitting at the edge of her bed – Elle has been listening to her breathing, while she waited.

She's not entirely sure what she's waiting for.

But if it's for sleep, that doesn't seem to be coming any time soon.

Eventually X shifts, tucking her knees up against her chest and resting her cheek against them.

Her gaze is fixed on Elle's back.

"Elle."

She says it quietly. Carefully.

"You are awake."

X just keeps watching Elle.

"You want to leave? The infirmary."

A jail-break can be staged, if so.

X has the technology.

"Okay."

X is always willing.

She is just not sure what to offer as another option.

"I do not know what else to do. In here."

"I do not want to leave."

Beat.

"To get something else."

Like a book. Or a cat.

Or a deck of playing cards.

Or more food.

"Okay," X repeats.

She still hasn't moved.

And she definitely won't, now.

X shifts her own hand to meet Elle's, fingertips just overlapping.

"Sometimes it is difficult to know," X offers, gaze flicking from Elle's chin to her eyes, and back again.

"What people will do. When they are not okay."

X hesitates, head tilting as she studies Elle.

"You are better? Now."

She is not entirely certain.

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-11-10 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh."

X absorbs that for a second.

Then --

"You know why?"

She doesn't. Not really.

If X were someone else, or of a more scientific bent, maybe she would be preoccupied with the 'why?' inherent to this scenario.

As she isn't, what she says instead is, "It is good that he is gone."

For many, many reasons. Most of them involving Elle.

X does not bother looking at Ava.

"Maybe she will be."

Beat.

"Sometimes people are."

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-11-10 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
X looks a little bewildered.

"Yes."

It probably should not be a question.

And yet.

"I heal," X says.

She sounds a little uncertain.

"And I was not dismembered. It is okay."

"You are important," X says firmly.

It is like an explanation.
