The leaf came free with resistance, like it was plucked from a vine. Eike turned his head slowly to look at it and the blood on its stem. Whatever he felt, or thought, or recognized in it was unreadable in his vacant stare. But one thing was clear - he wasn't surprised.

Surprise came when Tempeste described what the liquid in the vial would do - numb pain. His hands tightened around his arms. Why would she- he didn't... want... that. Did healers normally deny patients the euphoria of feeling? Why would people seek to numb their gift? Eike's breath came out shallow and he glowered at Tempeste as she stitched his wound. His discomfort and confusion were overwhelming him and it was all bubbling towards...

"Why... why did you want to numb me?" he began shakily through gritted teeth, "The divine right of human feeling... isn't for you to-!"

The would-be tantrum on the rise was interrupted by a pig-headed Outrider barging into the ward with the Ranger. Eike's head slammed back onto his pillow as his discomfort reintroduced itself like a boulder landing on him. He stayed very still and glared at the ceiling. He hated it, he hated it, he hated it. His eyes went flat and dark and his face turned blue as Korgan and Tempeste began to court right next to him. HE HATED IT, HE HATED IT, HE HATED IT.

His head flopped to the side to catch Korgan in his glare. His lips were thin and his eyes freakishly wide, simmering with the threat of bodily harm. Then Tempeste moved to lay hands on the Outrider and they just wouldn't stop, and Eike sat up straight.

"Ishara we're going," he announced briskly, snatching up his shirt but leaving his jacket behind in the hurry. He grabbed Lilou's hand and strode towards the door, wanting to be out of the light, everyone's eyes and especially out of the crossfires of all this office romance drama that he kept being privy too.

Those... flies... those insatiable, traitorous, unworthy insects. Why did they scorn Ivelda by flitting around this girl like moths to lanterns? He hated it, hated it, hated it.
