"It's called sick weed," I respond casually, still sitting on the bed beside her. "It siphons all of the toxins from your system and causes severe nausea. The initial illness is just your stomach reacting to the leaves breaking down; the real hell comes after the oils from the roots get fully absorbed. If I were you, I would try to choke down some water. Otherwise the cramps will make you really wish you were dead."

"What..?" I frown, moving clumsily to look at him, "Why!?"

"Because," I respond with a scowl. "You lost the luxury of the kinder, gentler help I could have given you when you trespassed onto my property and stole my poppies. Not only did you steal from me, which I could have overlooked given that the poisons they were laced with are punishment enough for the average junkie, but you took it further than that. You intended to use my plants, an instrument of my faith and my connection to the earth, as a means to heedlessly end a life.

"To put it bluntly?" I say with an unmistakable sneer. "You pissed me off and now I have to help you, and that just pisses me off more. So yeah. You're damn right you're going to suffer for it. You'll live. But it's going to be the worst kind of living before it becomes worth it."

My eyes widen with fear and confusion as Marnin tears into me, my posture stiffening as I sit up to look at him. 

"Who are you..?" I ask breathlessly, tears already streaming down my face as the ache starts to take over my body.

"Not Marnin," I respond starkly as I get to my feet and brush myself off. "Try to rest," I say firmly as I grab the bucket and replace it with another so I can clean the first one out. "You'll be sick intermittently for a few hours, and then the shakes will set in. You're going to need your strength."

With a bundle of herbs from Aodhagan and Ljuba's garden tucked into my arms, I head back inside to find Mairon in the kitchen, the smell of sick in the air. I hesitate slightly, Aodh following just behind me, before I go to set the herbs by the sink. 

"Everything okay?" I ask, peering around Mairon's shoulder to see the dirtied bucket, my nose pinching slightly at the odor.

"Everything is great," I smile as I reach back to squeeze Winifred's hand before returning to my task as I hum to myself cheerily. "Ljuba woke up and I got her to start her flush. A day or two and she'll be right as rain."

"Oh?" I perk up a bit at that, turning back to look at Aodh who has already headed back into the living room. Turning back to Mairon, I rest against the counter as I peer up at him. 

"So... what now?"

"Now we settle in," I shrug as I lean beside her, our sides touching as I tilt my headto listen to the two in the living room. "See that she doesn't die, I suppose... she's still pretty out of it."

"Will you sedate her?" I ask, watching him curiously as he seems to be listening to the other room.

"No," I respond a bit gruffly. "Not unless she gets belligerent. Otherwise, she needs to remember this."

"I didn't mean for her," I frown, sighing as I turn away before he can respond. Aodh's soup is boiling lightly, and the herbs need cleaning so they can be added. It's a task I busy myself with.

"Then for who?" I ask before realizing she's turned away. I make an irritated noise at her and then return to cleaning the bucket and gathering the other dishes that I've dirtied, noisily washing them as I protest Winifred's rationale.

I've finished adding the herbs to the soup, fastening the lid back into place and cutting down the fire a bit before I go to head back into the living room, ignoring the heavy way Mairon moves at the sink. I linger at the edge of the room, the woman on the bed sitting up heavily against Aodh's side as he seems to talk to her softly. She looks sullen and out of it, but there's something very present in the way she looks to him with a look of pure guilt twisting her face. I feel like I'm betraying them by lingering at the edge of their exchange, even if I lack the capabilities to truly eavesdrop. 

Sighing, I turn back towards the kitchen to find Mairon facing my direction.

It takes me a moment to realize that Winifred has turned to catch me listening to her movements. Even then, though, I only cock my head slightly as I continue to ponder her inner dialogue, the way she lingers silently, a sort of spectre at the edge of the world of the hearing.

"Do you ever feel like an outsider?" I ask quietly after a moment. "Not even right now, watching them... but just standing alone in the middle of a room? Sometimes I catch myself wondering what the point of me is... or why I'm here, of all places, so out of place compared to everyone else."

Marion's question catches me off guard, and I frown slightly as I step further into the kitchen.

"I feel like a voyeur, just watching everyone around me." I respond, my chest barely inflating with each word, "Like I'm here but not here... like I wasn't made for this world."

"Come on," I sigh as I grab my bag off of the counter, already pulling out the rope and hammock as I head toward the back door. "Let's find some trees, yeah? They don't hear or see."

I nod as I stop by the stove to cut it low, the heat doing little more than keeping it warm, before following Mairon out the back door.
