[oopfsb / undarkest timeline] cold light of day

In the morning Matt gets examined again, and given one more round with the device that stimulates bone regrowth for his cracked rib, and released from the infirmary with strict instructions to go back if he finds either the rib or his head giving him any pain.

Andrew's been talking to Security while this is going on, and returns to hover around the infirmary entrance while Matt's being discharged.

(He feels like he should be feeling less afraid, after a night's sleep and a definite course of action. Somehow he's not.)

Being given a (mostly) clean bill of health seems to have put some spring in Matt's step. His head is awhirl with strategy-- people he might try to send notes to, books to read, warding and protection spells to try. Of course, it'd be ideal if he had a little more information.

(And if he spent some time in the small hours of the night contemplating exes, well-- it doesn't have much to do with what's going on right now.)

He smiles when he catches sight of Andrew.

"Hey-- I'm free."

"Better," Matt decides. "A lot better. I could really eat, though. How about you?"

"Oh, aces. Well ... maybe breakfast, then?"
twiggy_witchboy: (work and or magic to do)

"Uhhh, booth," he decides, starting to walk.

Honestly, Matt's barely aware what word he's just said. He does want to sit down, though, so he can eat something and start to feel a little more human.

Choosing between gingerbread pancakes and an omelet does make for a pretty handy distraction.

(Trick question. He wants both! He didn't eat much yesterday.)

Once Matt has a cup of coffee in his hand, he feels a little better, but he's still not sure how to get back on the subject of the First. There's stuff he feels like he needs to know, but Andrew's distress from last night makes him hesitant to leap back into planning mode.

Matt sips.

In what he hopes is an encouraging tone, he says, "Yeah?"

"It's okay," Matt says. "I know it must've been a big shock."

He nods. If Andrew meets his gaze, he'll find that Matt's eyes have shadows under them, the greens and blues in them blurring muddily with brown; but their expression is serious and thoughtful.

He takes a sip of coffee.

"Can you try?" he says, sounding a bit more plaintive than he really meant to. "And like, if I don't get it I'll ask questions."
twiggy_witchboy: (think about that one)

[personal profile] twiggy_witchboy 2014-12-31 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
Matt pauses.

"I've made mistakes that felt that way at the time," he says. "Or-- when I realized how bad they were."
twiggy_witchboy: (I'm sorry what?)

He nods slowly.

He hasn't touched his own breakfast, though it smells really good. Matt loosens his death grip on his coffee and snags a bite of his omelet.

Another nod, his lips twitching down. Another bite.

This, Matt doesn't have much direct experience with, though he can be pretty good at not thinking about things.

It takes Matt a moment to parse that.

Then he says, "Yeah? What happened?"
