He jerks back, head shaking violently. "nonononono!"

"Okay. Okay, Star, no one is going to make you, alright? You don't have to."

Permalink

His breathing is still rapid, but he stops shaking his head, stops repeating 'no'. (Lee will keep him safe.)

Permalink

"It's okay, Star," she repeats, gently. "There are other options, or we can just wait for it to wear off on its own if you want," (she sounds unhappy about this but willing to work with it), "okay?"

Permalink

He's silent for a moment. "don't like."

Permalink

"Yeah. Okay. Other options are something you swallow, or something you breathe in. Either of those sound much better or should I ask more about them?"

Permalink

He makes himself smaller. "breathe?" It's half question, half answer. He's not sure just how easily he could swallow right now.

Permalink

"Okay. It's okay, Star."

She takes a moment, breathing, and then: "He wants the inhaled version?"

Permalink

'Get that Pri?'

Permalink

'I'll let Ms Adareif know,' Pride confirms.

Permalink

'Lee, I've left clothes on the other side of the bathroom door. You might have my softest shirt, but this one's a close second.'

Permalink

"Okay. Star, I'm going to get you some clothes. I won't go out of your sight, okay?"

Permalink

Star watches her closely, but nods.

Permalink

Nicole gets up and goes over to the door -- it opens on its own -- picks up the clothes, carefully staying within Star's line of sight, and brings them back over to him, setting them carefully down next to him.

"Do you want me to leave--"

Permalink

He makes a distressed noise, half reaches out for her before snatching his hand back.

Permalink

"Hey, hey, it's okay, I won't if you don't want want me to, Star, okay?"

Permalink

He breathes a little easier, makes a sound that Lee will definitely be able to translate to 'good'. He reaches for the clothes again, and then pauses, eyes darting to Lee, and then back down to the clothes.

Permalink

"Yeah, that's why I asked. I can turn around?"

Permalink

He nods. It's better than her leaving.

Permalink

She nods, and turns around.

"How long?" she asks Erie.

Permalink

'Five-ten minutes. Not long.' (Too long, but not long.)

Permalink

Star dresses quickly, wraps the blanket back around himself, and clears his throat quietly.

Permalink

"Done?" she checks.

Permalink

He nods, remembers she can't see him, and hums an affirmative.

Permalink

She turns back to him, and sits back down where she was before.
