Immediately Era regretted not trying to prolong her denial. Her arm hurt enough as it was without Emi 'fixing' it. But it was too late now. She'd have to live with the consequences of her choice.
Era had no idea what Emi meant by 'brace your feet' but her body was taut with tension that it was a moot point. The dragon held her breath; but with the snap of her arm, it left her with a cry. For a moment she felt cocooned away from reality in some place overwhelmingly intense. Her stomach roiled, and she felt hot and flushed. Era swayed on her feet, needing to sit down.
