It's been about two days.

Nobody's come for him.



Andrew's lying down, staring at the far wall.

Good, because she doubts he's going to like the next part.

"May I ask you why you still wear those cuffs?"

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 01:39 am (UTC)(link)

"I've worn cuffs before, but I always find they grow uncomfortable after a few hours."

"According to whom?"

gothamsheiress: (I seek the means to fight injustice)

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 02:57 am (UTC)(link)

"I think," she says, quiet but definite, "you would likely feel better if you stopped wearing them."

Brix makes no move to rise from where she's kneeling on the floor -- indeed, no move at all.

"I won't take them from you. But I think they're binding you to a memory of pain."

"What if you took them off just for a night? To see how you felt. You needn't get rid of them or even put them away."

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
"I won't," again, calm and still definite. "But I ask you to think about it."

Brix sighs softly.

"Then I will worry, and you will keep them, and that will be the end of that."

"Thank you."

It was worth trying -- strike while the iron is hot, after all -- but she would be lying if she told herself she isn't disappointed. But her expression remains composed and neutral.

"Is there anything else you need, in here? New books?"
gothamsheiress: (pick yourself up again)

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh -- would you like different ones?"
gothamsheiress: (pick yourself up again)

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
"What scares you about them?"
gothamsheiress: (I seek the means to fight injustice)

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
". . . If you'll feel the same?"
gothamsheiress: (the hero Gotham deserves)

[personal profile] gothamsheiress 2016-10-26 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
"Do you think new ones might suit you better? Ones you have no association with."

The corner of her mouth lifts, though it's not quite a smile.

"I would offer to bring you something from my world, but I'm not sure our tastes run to similar ends."
