Discussing Cutting -- Lisa, Marjorie ((canon))

Post by Lisa on Fri May 03, 2013 4:45 pm

Spoiler:
Wing Lisa smiled softly, letting herself into the house quietly. She had gotten out of the office a bit early for once so she was planning to treat Marjorie and take her out for dinner, especially since the girl had been so much help since she had started to work for her. That was assuming she was here and not out with Riley or Andrew again.

Ella Marjorie was curled up on the bed in her bedroom, an old towel spread out to prevent any stains. She didn't hear Lisa enter, though her door was open, because of the music she currently had going on through her headphones. Her left arm was a patchwork of red lines, shallow but bleeding profusely and she was crying a little bit, shoving her glasses up constantly.

Wing Lisa set her bag on the table and started up the stairs. She reached a hand up to knock on the door frame but paused as she saw the blood. Her training kicked in and she rushed forward, wrapping the towel tightly around Marjorie's arm. "What happened?" she asked, tugging the girl up with one hand and pulling off her headphones.

Ella Marjorie yelped as her arm was grabbed and her razor dropped, staring up at Lisa with large eyes. "Let go of me, I was doing something important!"

Wing Lisa met her eyes, concerned. "Marjorie, why were you cutting yourself?" she asked, half-carrying her into the bathroom so she could clean her arm.

Ella "I can walk," she grumbled and sighed. "I need blood for my restitution," she added. "I started cutting when I was little. It actually doesn't hurt as much." She pulled away, pushing up her other sleeve.

Wing Lisa paused to just gaze at her for a little then sighed, turning back to continue tending to her arm. "Marjorie, you've been crying so that's not all there is to it." She'd bring up that the girl lived with a doctor who could draw blood using a syringe for her.

Ella "It's just a source of comfort," she said softly, looking away under the doctor's gaze. "I had some nightmares."

Wing "You know that you can talk to me about anything, don't you?" she asked, setting aside the towel to look closely at the cuts.

Ella "Yeah, I guess." They were the freshest marks. It was obvious she was cutting rather a lot lately, and there were older scars under that. "Don't tell Riley."

Wing "I won't, but you should. Why have they increased? Because of what you were made to do?"

Ella "I've just been having a lot of nightmares," she snapped then shrank into herself. "I keep dreaming everybody I love is killed."

Wing Lisa stopped to hug Marjorie gently. "I'm sorry to hear that Marjorie. Do you want to talk about them?" she asked softly.

Ella She looked down. "Riley gets shot. Andrew gets drowned."

Wing Lisa gently rubbed her back. "Is there anything I can do to help?"

Ella "I dunno. Make the nightmares go away." She looked down and kicked at the counter.

Wing "I can prescribe you some sleep aids for the short term," she said, pulling away to bandage Marjorie's arm. "Would you be willing to try them?"

Ella She looked up. "Um...I guess? But...wouldn't Riley and Andrew wonder what they are?"

Wing "They're just little pills that you take before you go to bed. I can prescribe you birth control as well. Being male, they'd probably drop it pretty quickly. Well, Andrew'd probably insist on having another talk with Riley," she said with a soft laugh.

Ella She blushed. "We haven't even done anything yet. You adults are weird," she mumbled.

Wing She smiled. "Andrew's protective. He just wants to make sure that you're well taken care of."

Ella She squirmed a bit. "I know. I just...I still can't really..."

Wing "I know. But if you think that it might help you, just let me know. Same with if you start to get to that point with Riley." She finished taping down the gauze then took both of her hands in a gentle grip. "Marjorie, I need you to promise me that you're going to try not to cut anymore. Please."

Ella She looked up at Lisa, frowning a bit. "I dunno...I've done it for a really long time."

Wing "That's why I'm asking you to try. If you start to feel that urge, then call someone. Me or Riley or Andrew or even Halt. All of us want you to be happy and healthy and we're more than happy to talk to you."

Ella "But cutting helps me be happy."

Wing "There are other ways to be happy though. Doesn't spending time with Riley make you happy?" she asked.

Ella She nodded, smiling a bit. "He doesn't get it, but he does. Even if he's a bit annoying."

Wing Lisa leaned forward like she was going to share a secret. "Love is like that, even if you don't think it's love yet."

Ella "Huh?" She blushed darkly. "I-I..."

Wing Lisa laughed softly, standing and tugging Marjorie to her feet. "Now, if you need blood for your power or restitution, let me know. I can draw some for you."

Ella "But what about when I'm not here anymore?"

Wing Lisa smiled gently, smoothing Marjorie's hair back. "I'm your friend and your doctor. You can come to me for anything. For that, or medicine, or just to talk, or even come over for dinner."

Ella She looked up at Lisa after a few minutes and hugged the doctor tightly.

Wing Lisa smiled and hugged her back. "I know sometimes you feel alone but you're not anymore."

Ella "All right." She nodded a bit. "I'll try to stop."

Wing "Thank you. That's all I ask." She loosened her arms a little so she could look at Marjorie. "Now, are you hungry?"
