She squeezes her eyes shut. "That - I hadn't been so scared since I Exalted. You'd completely cut the blood flow off to my brain, if I hadn't figured out how to use Essence to keep myself moving - "
"Do you know how fast brain damage happens, when you cut off blood flow? Permanent brain damage, that not even the greatest healers can treat?" She's shaking, now, at the memory. "I - panicked, and I wanted it off - "
"And then you relaxed it - and - "
"I was scared and in pain and confused and there was an angry Solar standing over me, demanding I beg for mercy, and - "
"It wasn't you I was seeing. Attacking."
"And you don't regret it."
