Wincing, I let him take my hand without any objection as I watch him quietly. At this point, my limbs just feel like they're floating in warm water, and even the sensation of his scissors cutting through the bandage is lost as I instead try fruitlessly to move my fingers. They're not responding, not beyond my thumb and index finger, and the inability to move them leaves a feeling of dread and anxiety pooling in my stomach. 

"You'll fix them, right..?" I ask.

"Don't try to move them," I say gently as I frown and feel the bruised and tender flesh. "I've done what I can, stitched up what I could. Now it's up to your body to heal itself. But I don't want you straining those tendons while they're trying to heal for at least two weeks. It's nothing but suture and cord holding them together right now."

Turning her hand over in mine a few times, I sigh to myself as I pull a container of gauze over so I can clean the suture site.

"It looks good, though," I smile slightly as I glance up to her. "There was so much dirt and grit in the wound, I was worried about infection. But it looks like I was able to debride it well enough, and it's starting to heal nicely."

I only nod as I sniffle, the thick bandages on my other arm stopping me from raising that hand to wipe my face. Laying my head back in defeat, I exhale unsteadily as he rewraps my wrist. 

"So how long's it been?" I ask softly, "Since he brought me?"

"About forty-eight hours," I respond with a bit of a frown. "Marn's been sneaking in to see you."

Laughing, I nod at that. 

"Of course." I say heavily, my eyelids feeling heavy despite his touch.
