"It never does, does it?" I sigh softly, still staring out the window listlessly. "You come out the other end worse than you went in, if you come out at all." I add a bit thickly. 

"I spent a long time wishing they'd have just killed me, it'd have been the more merciful punishment."

"Life is pain," I offer with a lame shrug. "I wish I had better answers for you, but in all the decades I've lived, I've only found that things really don't get better. You just find new ways to adapt, new distractions and lies to tell yourself to keep going. And that's about all you can do - find more good things than bad to convince yourself it's all worth it.

"So far, you're off to a lousy start," I say with a teasing smile. "But you're in good company."

"You're lucky the urge to hit you pales compared to the fear of what might happen if I do." I retort as I glance his way with a slight smirk.

"So! Six days?" I continue with a heavy exhale, sitting up in my seat stiffly as I curl my legs back underneath me again. "Six days of driving? Or six days of stopping in little towns for proper food and leg stretching and... I don't know, not driving."

"We'll be doing the latter," I respond dryly as I glance at her, shaking my head. "Not for the sake of comfort, though. We need information if we're going to sneak into the Grand Circle. And you need to brush up on your skills because I'm certain they'll be needed if we're going to get out again."

"You want me to use my magic on people here?" I groan as I twist in my seat to face him. "That sounds like a really stupid plan."
