Continued therapy (Jo)
Continued from here
"A map." Hannibal mused. He stood up and went to the pile of mail he'd left here some time ago. There was a map in that. "I don't know what good it will do you."
He set it down on the table next to the girl. "Most of the places move. But there are some that don't. And those are here on this map. It's good that you're already feeling a sense of familiarity. But don't push on it too hard, lest you lose it."
Hannibal took his seat and sat back again, waiting for a sign that she was ready to continue. They'd go at her pace, of course. He didn't want to break her, but help her. Maybe he'd regret this, he had no idea. He didn't know who she was or what she did. But the challenge was too much to ignore.
He stole a quick look at her notepad, instantly forming a memory of the names there. None of them were anything he recognized. But they'd be good to keep a hold of anyway, just in case.
"I think it's safe to say that if you're here now, you've been here a while. Maybe the sense of before that you have isn't that you left and came back, it's that perhaps you've been unknowing of your self for so long it just feels like another lifetime. Does that make sense?"
