Upon first waking, Fatina had been hysterical, even lashing out at Jil for saving her. He had pulled her close, ingnoring her words and holding her tightly against his body - so different from Neeba. It was that simple action that woke Fatina from her anger. Tears began to appear and she struggled to choke them back. Within moments her body was wracked with sobs and Fatina threw her arms around Jil's neck, giving in to her emotions.

No more words had been spoken. The tears eventually dried but Fatina did not make any attempt to move. Jil untangled her arms from his neck and for a moment Fatina found herself lost in his eyes. One of his hands reached up and a blush spread along her cheeks as he leaned close. Instead of the expected kiss, Jil lightly ran his finger against her cheeks, drying the trails of her tears. Fatina lowered her gaze and began to wonder why everything he did was suddenly being compared to Neeba within her mind.

Jil suddenly grasped her hand and pointed towards Meskia. Fatina nodded and the two began to trek towards the settlement. After a moment, Jil opened his mouth, a determined look in his eyes. Before he could voice his thoughts, Fatina squeezed Jil's hand, meeting his gaze and shaking her head. They both knew what he was about to say but Fatina wasn't ready to hear it just yet. Not when her thoughts were still so muddled.
