"Common" "Common Sign" "Scalveen"
It had been a few trials, Lavender and Nalin seemed to be getting used to life at the medical hub. They had a room together and were eating probably a lot better than they had been in a long time. Lavender hated it, the trapped feeling, as neither of them weren't really allowed to go out much. As Faith had explained it, light exercise would be okay, but Nalin needed the rest. They both understood that, and Lavender actually agreed on that note it seemed, but Nalin could see that even she was getting antsy. She wanted to go home, not that that place was much different. She had to stay indoors there for the most part as well.
Volker had been visiting them almost daily, though Nalin hadn't told him that his body had rejected the soup after he left. He didn't have the heart to tell him. He wasn't sure why he hadn't been able to keep it down either. He just knew that it hadn't been pleasant. He sighed at the thought, kind of hoping that he wouldn't come in today. Or at least not be around when Faith came in. Knowing that the two seemed to dislike each other a lot. He kind of understood it but at the same time, he hated seeing it. Volker was a human too, he just was a bit prickly on the outside, probably because of things that happened to him in the past. That was okay, not everyone was good at keeping a good handle on things.
He looked out the window and sighed, the nurses had come in this morning to do some basic checks, but Faith was due in any trill. She had been coming in to see the both regularly. It was good that she was so willing to try and help them, and in fact he could already tell that even just the things she was prescribing for his symptoms were helping. Some sort of cream was being used on his Bloom twice a trial, once when he woke up, and once after he washed himself off. It kept the aching, burning sensation from bothering him too terribly much. There were times where he kind of felt it, but he wasn't in so much pain that he couldn't move his shoulder without wanting to yell.
She was also doing things to help with his sleep and other needs, still though, he couldn't really get more than 2 or 3 breaks of sleep at a time before he woke up and couldn't get back to sleep for at least a break. Though it did mean that he could at least manage 4-6 breaks of sleep a night if he was lucky. He'd just have to be able to move that to mornings when he went back to Almund. It would be great if he could keep things that way.
Lavender was curled up next to him right now, making hands symbols on his chest. He smiled a bit. She was signing to him, telling him that things were finally looking up for them. She didn't know the danger that loomed over them even after all of this was said and done. He had yet to tell her about their father, who was still alive and apparently after her. The thought made him shake his head and clear his throat. Lavender questioned if he was okay against his chest and he nodded.
"Soon, everything be right Lavender. Hopefully sooner be able to hear angels voice. Your voice."
Lavender smiled and nuzzled against Nalin's shoulder. They barely fit on the bed together, but Lavender didn't care, and it was obvious she didn't. She wanted to be close to him. He was the only familiar thing here, that, and to any other, it was obvious they were close and cared about each other. Nalin turned his head as he heard the door to their room open, he smirked at the woman who came through the door.
"Bout time miss. Anything new?"
