"A little bit of everything, really," I say as I continue picking at the carrots. "Officially, I'm a relief mechanic for the generators and other city machinery. Unofficially, I'm a tinkerer, engineer, freelance fixer extraordinaire.

"Really? I just like taking things apart and seeing how they work. This just happens to be less messy than being a therapist."

"More admirable, as well," I laugh lightly, returning to where I'd been working earlier to tidy up the coffee and side tables in the living area. "I never understood the appeal of therapy. Telling me why I might be sad won't do anything to alleviate my pains, if anything, it just offers a more self-aware sort of depression. 

"I didn't like it."

"Why did you have to go to therapy?" I ask before I can think better of the prying question. "...if you don't mind me asking."

I tense mildly, realizing the trickle of personal information I'd offered before standing to look back at him. 

"To cope with the death of a loved one." I respond with a slight shrug, my arms full of books and writing utensils and other peculiar tools. "I struggled for a bit after, and someone close to me saw to it I got 'help.' I only went two or so times, if I recall," I continue, moving around towards the desk so I can put away the pens and pencils and drawing tools, "I always left feeling worse than I did when I went, so I stopped."

"Understandable," I nod with a sympathetic frown. "Sometimes it's best to just let things go rather than dwelling on them. I see someone pretty frequently, but when it comes to that kind of stuff, I don't know... I try not to let them focus on it. I'm at a whole other place when it comes to death compared to most people."
