Elijah kept his eyes closed, trying to Will the pain pounding against his skull away. His vision was spotty, which was why he kept his eyes shut.

"I know that Sadie, but he's really in no shape to get up and walk out of here!" Norah snapped, then looked back at Elijah. Norah was frightened; what if his pain didn't pass? They had to get out of the hospital, but how could they do that with drawing attention?

Sadie grunted her discontent and started to pace, eyes glancing furtively around the room, desperate to find something of use. “We’re in a damn hospital, there’s got to be something around here...”

“Sorry,” he said softly, pressing his hands against his head. He dragged them down his face and took a few deep breaths. “I’m sorry,” he repeated.

"Hey, no, don't be sorry Elijah," Norah told him as she moved so that she sat beside him. She put her hand on his back, not sure what else to do but try and offer some comfort. "We'll figure this out. Just take your time," Norah said. She looked over at Sadie, "You could look around, find some kind of pain killers?" she offered, not sure thogh if it was worth the risk

Sadie ran her hand through her hair, breathing deeply. “Just stay put, okay? I’ll find something, and as soon as he can walk we’re getting the hell out.”

Elijah turned and curled into Norah some, shaking slightly. “My head,” he said weakly. “They did something to my head.”

Norah blinked away tears as she as she gently kissed the top of his head, "Why is it only hurting you now? When you remembered us, this didn't happen. I don't understand," Norah siad, voice breaking, "What did they do to you?" she wondered.

He just shook his head and pressed it against her shoulder some. “It’s getting better,” he mumbled after another moment but he still didn’t move.

Norah didn't even want to contemplate what they could have done to him; she hoped for his sake he at least never remembered that. "That's good," she said softly as she held him close. She bit her lip, not sure if it was wise to ask, but she felt it important, "Did you...remember anything?" she asked

“Some,” Elijah told her. “It’s a bit blurry.” He slowly pulled away from her and sighed, carefully moving to stand up. “We need to go.”

“Are you sure you’re up to it yet?” She asked but quickly got to her feet and lend him her hands to help him up.
