Rec Room

The wardroom, or rec room, is a place to connect.

[Wanda shakes her head; that doesn't matter. She's up now.] I will stay as long as you want.

[She nods while they talk, follows along with the story in Bel's memories. It doesn't hurt, but it's definitely fortunate Zam already dragged Rinzler off. Wanda would not be gentle, not after seeing what he did.]

When you were hurt...I knew. I could feel that something bad had happened, but I didn't... [She squeezes their hand again. Bad memories of Sokovia, bad visions of the future.] I was afraid it was worse.

If it will make you feel better, but I can sleep anywhere.

[It's kind of sweet how concerned Bel is about such trivial things - she's slept in far worse conditions than a chair in the medbay. But Wanda has a sneaking suspicion that they won't let this go, so she rolls her eyes in fond exasperation and pulls an empty bed over with a flick of her wrist and flash of red.

...if anyone on the staff wants to harass her about it tomorrow, she'll just tell them she's on watch in case Rinzler somehow gets away from Zam. That makes sense, right?]

This is what happens if I am close to someone. It's like a spider's web - I know when the threads pull or break. [She squeezes their hand again, gently.] But we can talk about it later. You need to rest.

[Which means they're going to have to let go of her for a few seconds - Wanda's unwilling to initiate that with Bel in this state.]

[She wouldn't do this for just anyone, mind you, but it's Bel. Wanda feels psychically safe with them, enough that sleeping here shouldn't give her problems.

...which leads to the other reason for this arrangement.]

They gave you something for the pain, yes? It might make your dreams strange but...

[Wanda looks away and fusses with the sheets on her own side, uncertain. It's one thing to reveal that you can read another's thoughts and quite another to let on how simple it is to change them. It's more than memory sharing - she can twist them into anything she wants. Very dangerous in the hands of someone not inclined to be careful with it...

...and once upon a time she didn't care as much as she should have.]

I can stop that from happening, keep the nightmares away.
