Even when leaving, he refused to offer his hand, but when he did on getting on the chariot, I happily obliged.


This brought a frown to the otherwise void face, and he sported it almost halfway back home.

"Is there where I will go after I finish treating you?" I looked back to where my memories will no longer be mine to remember.

The flames of ember danced with amusement. "And why would you go there." Was his short answer, leaving me in a fearful smile.
