    Summary

    Bren Aldric Ermendrud had been in the Vergesson Sanatorium for almost six years. He thought he was broken beyond repair. He was a monster, and he couldn’t handle the pressure or level of cruelty required anymore.

    Then an old woman clasped her hands on either side of his head and spoke some strange arcane words in a voice that seemed much more youthful than her appearance, in an accent he had never heard before. Nicodranas, perhaps? But it was like a veil had been lifted.

    He could remember everything. The real and the fake. Very little made sense, but Bren wanted revenge. First he needed to get the hell out of here.

    The aasimar and the purple tiefling dragging away the crazed old woman were probably his best bet at getting any answers.

    Summary

    -x-

    Caleb watches. And he envies. And he tells himself the ache is bearable. He convinces himself that it’s starting to go away, that in a month’s time it will be like he never had any feelings for them at all.

    Of course the night after he decides that they all have to share a room.
