Rhode was more than ready to be done with her appointment, she felt like all that had happened was she got poked at, prodded, and peered at. But the doctor seemed satisfied with her progress, merely told her to keep the healing wound clean, and to come back if there were any problems. She nodded and shook his hand as he left, swinging her legs on the table and twisting her hands. She pulled out her phone and texted Benthesikyme, who only tolerated it for a few texts before telling her to get out there and face the music.
Rhode pulled a face at her phone and slipped it into her bag. Squaring her shoulders, she pulled her purse onto her shoulder and left the exam room, coming back out into the waitong room and finding Helios. She put a hand on his shoulder and said, "Looks like everything's OK. Let's go home, love."
