Dohan left us alone in The Dome today. It was the first time we had the place to ourselves since we’d started training and I immediately tried to use my ‘gift’ on everything I could find. (Which wasn’t much apart from some sticks of furniture.) Even when I placed both palms on the wall, I didn’t get as much as a tickle in my hands or the tiniest spark of an image in my head. Can’t say I was surprised, though. No matter what kind of environment is set up in there, the whole place always feels so sterile. Full but empty might be a better way to put it. If I hadn’t physically touched so many items in there it would be easy to imagine all the training props were illusions.
I’m sure if the walls could talk I’d hear amazing things. But I’m also quite sure they’re never going to talk to me. I’m disappointed and relieved about that. Deep down I don’t think I want to know much of what went on in there over the years or decades.
I mentioned Sara’s news about a temporary Circleweb to Maya earlier. She didn’t seem in any way fazed by the idea of spending ‘adjustment’ time here. No. She seemed ready to jump at the chance. It wouldn’t surprise me if she’s packing a bag right now. As for our baby, well, we both agree it might be for the best if Maya gives birth here. If the baby’s contracted anything from me it’ll have a much better chance at survival here.
To be honest, I’d love Maya to be with me here.
