We all chatted, well mostly I talked, they asked questions. They probably knew my whole life’s story in that one sitting. Seems the new guy always got grilled. But it didn’t feel like that. But then again I was used to spilling my guts with everything. It tended to just fall out.
I didn’t learn anything new about Jo, or anyone else. Cliff’s Amelia sat in my lap. It was an enjoyable conversation I had with myself and Cliff. He even helped me to my room. Amelia stayed behind said she was going to watch my back. I wasn’t exactly sure why that was but since I couldn’t see her I doubted whatever she wanted to protect me from I could see either. I did wonder if Cliff was crazy or not. Or if he really did see ghosts. Hell of a gift to be a medium and then everyone disbeleive you and call you crazy.
I tried to stand and walk and all I managed was to sink to my knees. Crawling would have to do I wasn’t about to scream for assistance. I should have gone to sleep but without Sage or Dev I was actually a little afraid to do so. Even here where I should be safe I didn’t feel it. I used a wisp of air to unfurl the yoga mat not to far from my bed. I may not be able to stand yet but I was sure I could do some yoga to calm down and relax.
It wasn’t lights out yet. And the longer it grew from dinner the more I found myself drifting into a drowsy state. Whatever they had given me was making me tired. But I powered through the sitting and kneeling yoga moves then moved into some bodyweight exercises. A pushup was difficult but I did manage it, without any real assistance. My core was still relatively strong, just my legs. And that was difficult without any standing.
But I wove air around me and I used that to assist. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier. I didn’t need assistance from anyone I could do it myself.
I heard a large shrill buzz and then a voice over the intercom, “Lights Out.” I’d spent at least three hours zoned out in Yoga. That was unusual. I would need to ask about that. I didn’t like this medication if I was going to lose time.
I laid down in my lumpy bed and wrapped the blankets around me. I wrapped the elements around me to comfort me. I could feel the warmth from my ability coursing through me. I wished it was Sage or Dev. I wondered to myself when Dee would fit that comfort bill, if she ever would. I was pretty sure Dee wasn’t going anywhere.
I closed my eyes and imagined the warmth around me was Dev. I wanted to see Dev. I needed to see him. I wondered what kind of dream I’d have with him and his baby blue eyes and inky hair that I wanted to run my fingers through…
