Vic's been spending time on the spa planet, not to do spa things, but to spend time barefoot with the birds people, to meditate, and try to be less miserable.

But everytime she sees one of the little feathered kids, with their round healthy bellies, she can't help thinking about a few nights ago, the rescue mission, what was on the floor.

She's been spending a lot of time helping them garden the greens and harvest the rocks that give them the calcium that they need. But she needs another perspective, needs to get out of her head.

So she invited a military man over, someone who might know what she's going through. She doesn't want to burden Cole, Clark's been through enough, and she's sure James wouldn't even know what to say to her.

Most of the swelling has gone out of her face, now there's just a purplish bluish blotch on her right cheek. She waits.

Jake PINs in, dressed in his usual animal hide loincloth and the various accessories that mark his accomplishments. He doesn't have as many feathers in his hair today, but there are some, woven in throughout the long braid.

"That's one hell of a shiner," he says in greeting. "Your face is almost as blue as mine."

"Jesus, why not just yell at them?" He crouches down next to her, closer to eye level, those long legs folding up gracefully. His tail swishes behind him for balance.

jarheadclan: (Wary)
From: [personal profile] jarheadclan
"That was stupid. You should never go off half-cocked and without backup." He's not yelling at her though, more of a 'this is what you should learn' kind of thing.

"You can't yell at anyone if you're dead." The tip of his tail taps against her ankle, then sweeps away again.

"You should. Especially if someone's coming at you hard enough to cause this." He doesn't quite touch her face, reaching out two fingertips to indicate the dark bruise. "There's a real fine line between getting beat up or getting killed."

jarheadclan: (Oh sh-)
From: [personal profile] jarheadclan
Oh, he hates hearing that. He's a big tough grunt, but he still has feelings. And losing anyone is always hard, even if you didn't know them. "Damn. I'm sorry."

"It's okay." He moves his thumb to hold her hand, those big alien hands making her seem child-sized herself to him. "I've seen a lot of people killed before. I'm more worried about you."

From: [personal profile] jarheadclan
"You gotta let it go. If they were gone before you even got there, there really wasn't anything you could do." It's not a helpful answer, he knows, and while he can tough it out she might not be so skilled.

Date: 2012-06-10 08:09 pm (UTC)
jarheadclan: (Both of me)
From: [personal profile] jarheadclan
"But you didn't know. You can't blame yourself for them dying. The only people at fault are the bastards who killed them."

"You can't think that way. Those people you've saved, you made a difference to them."

"There's no one set way for everyone... and it might not completely go away. Probably won't. Is there anything you can do for them? Tell their parents, take care of the bodies...?"

"Where were you?"

"Was someone attacking? What happened?" He gives her hand a squeeze, and curls his tail around to lie parallel with his foot, the tip twitching slightly like a cat's.
