Kaya had avoided the infirmary for weeks. The last time she had been in there was the night she was jumped, when she was almost killed by that girl in the rain. She remembered the pain of the encounter, the gashes and kicks and screams. The most important thing she remembered, however, was her knife, the feeling of its cold steel pressed against her ankle, the shouts inside her rising up to use it, use it, kill her, kill her. She remembered it each night, every time she went down for bed, at the brink of when her breath would calm into sleep. It always came when she was about to sleep. The nurse that night seemed rather peeved, and the flashbulb memory of the night caught a glimpse of this nurse, her face. It stuck with Kaya, the way she talked, the nonchalance in how she handled her case save for the occasional scowl to herself. She seemed scary, the opposite of what she thought a nurse would be. The nurses at Arviat were kind and old. She seemed mean and young.

But like all mean and young people, like Tabitha in Vietnam, Kaya hung on her. She knew not all people were mean without a purpose, or at least this was her way of thinking about it. When Kaya passed that bulletin board at the end of the hallway and saw that yellow sheet, a hastily printed paper calling for a nurse or doctor after a certain member of the personnel left, Kaya decided to jump on it. She did not know why, or what would become of it, but it would be good to stay out of the forest for a little while, to indulge herself in student life and maybe make some friends. The owls were good listeners, but not entirely good friends.

She was in the infirmary the next morning, having filled out the paper, signed the waiver, and been admitted the previous day. She swept the floor of nothing in particular, of dust hardly settled, in hopes that it would bridge the gap of time until a new person came with new dust.

There was someone new in the infirmary. When she'd first heard about it, she'd felt a surge of relief. With Logan gone, there was that much more work to go around for the rest of them. She never expected to miss him, but when she was working late shifts filing paperwork, it was hard not to wish for someone to share the load with. That was until she heard the name. Kaya Yakone. Kaya, Kaya, Kaya, the girl drenched in rain and blood with a name just like hers. Even if she was just a few spare inches shorter, she'd looked small then, with her clothes plastered to her skin, just on the brink of consciousness. Kayla didn't know her, but whenever she thought back to that night, she couldn't imagine anyone but someone sweet and defenseless. It left a nauseous feeling simmering in her gut, but there wasn't anything to do.

Of course, she'd never gotten the full story. She pried all she could, but Kayla couldn't remember her saying anything more than three words the whole night. The other girl, Larissa, looked just as lost. That's what had bothered her most about back then. Maybe Kaya would be fine in the end, after all the scars had faded away, but the fact lingered that she'd been attacked and left to bleed out in a field.

Her footsteps squeaked through the length of the hallway until she was standing outside the infirmary, her thumbs hooked into her pockets. A flicker of electricity ran over the brass knob as it began to turn on its own. The door creaked open, and she was greeted by the sound of a broom sweeping over the tiles.

Speak of the devil.

She'd known they were bound to run into each other again eventually, but Kayla still couldn't speak for a moment when she saw her standing there. It was the same girl she'd meant that night, but healthy and alive. Her eyes swept over the near spotless floor, and then over her waist and shoulders. Did she still have the scars? Did they still hurt?

Kayla gave a weak smile and leaned on the door frame, sparks running along the brim of her hat. "I'd heard you applied," she said in a light tone, almost questioning. "I just don't get why. Did you like your first visit that much?" It was a weak joke, but it was just bringing a voice to her thoughts. That's part of what made seeing her so strange. Weeks after she'd been bleeding out in a cot, she was back again. She glanced around to the infirmary, fighting a grimace. This place held bad memories for her too.

Kaya didn't much sense the joke, or she was trying hard to be polite. When Kayla walked in, she looked up and stiffened a bit, pausing her chore to smile and nod. "Yes," she told her. "I like this place. It's interesting. You as well are." As soon as she said this, she continued sweeping, reaching into corners and dark places with her broom and pulling out clumps of dust seemingly out of nowhere. She used to sweep the local store in her old town for some money. They'd scold her for missing under the cupboards.

Her? Kayla rubbed the back of her neck, looking down. "Well, that's a first," she said, turning over the stilted English in her head. Not a first language? She walked past her and over to the desk, settling down in that usual uncomfortable chair. Every single time she sat down, she made a mental note to bring a pillow the next time, and every single time, she forgot. A spark shot off over her head.

She rest her cheek on her hand, watching the girl sweep. Thinking about it, she couldn't remember one time she'd broken out that broom without being told. Kaya was already turning out to be a better nurse than her. "Anything acting up?" she ventured after a few moments of silence. The girl looked fine, but all those questions had been gnawing at her ever since she'd first left the infirmary. "You're healing fine?"

"I'm healed." When Kayla sat down, Kaya stopped sweeping for a moment, looking down at the broom. She sat her elbows on the broom's staff, and balancing like a T, mimicked Kayla in putting her hand on her cheek. She stayed there for a second, before immediately popping up, and reserving herself from the burst of excitement to shy, short sweeps. "I know who did it."

Her mouth twisted in wry amusement, watching her. Healed. That was good. Even as soft-spoken as she was, she seemed full of life, and that was more than she could ask her. Something about her reminded her of someone she'd cared about over a thousand miles away. Maybe that was just her projecting, imagining things. Was she homesick? She realized she'd been smiling as she'd been staring.

Kaya's words felt like a punch to the gut. Her smile evaporated, and Kayla sat upright in her chair, bringing her hands down onto the counter top. "Who?" she pushed, an iron edge to her voice. That had been what she'd been prying for that night, what had nagged at her since Larissa laid the girl out on the cot. Something drove her forward, a flint of heat burning away at her insides. She didn't know her, and she didn't know why she felt what she felt, but she couldn't help the anger swelling up in her chest. "Why?"

"Someone in a class, a class of mine." She cleared her throat and swept at nothing, now truly nothing, just to look busy. Though, she looked at Kayla, something she was always good at doing, maintaining some sort of eye contact when it was necessary; her eyes were a soft, cool gaze, dark and unglinted. "Her name is Arbor according to my teacher. I don't know if you recognize her, not much persons do." Her gaze floated back down to her broom, and she stopped her job a second time, and finally rested it against the wall.

Arbor. She wouldn't have known the name if they hadn't mentioned it under their breaths when they were holding her in the Headmaster's office, with an arrow drawn and held up to her back. That had been her first day at Beata Academy, and she'd hunted her down during her night shift in the infirmary. After all the things she'd said to her, it was almost embarrassing to remember... There'd been a misunderstanding between them. The girl was trying to kill her, and she'd known her name and her power, and after everything she'd been through in the leading few weeks, she'd thought she was someone... different, than just a normal student. Kayla didn't know what she would've done if a prefect hadn't shown up to stop her, but none of it could've been good. She hadn't been in her right state of mind, and her thoughts had been racing with paranoid fears and possibilities.

She'd heard a few rumors since then, but she hadn't caught so much as a glimpse of that old orange hood. A girl who went around hunting students. Kayla gripped the edge of the counter, gritting her teeth.

Kayla stood up. Electricity surged across her shoulders. Her mouth was twisted in a grimace.

"I know her." Maybe being so infuriated made her a hypocrite. She couldn't even count the number of fights she'd been in since she got to this school. But this... "Do you think she'll do it again?" That went without saying. Even if she never even looked at Kaya from this point forward, there'd be some other helpless person bleeding out in a field. Kayla was never going to be the last person she attacked. "Do you feel safe?"

When Kayla asked about her safety, Kaya looked down a bit, rubbing her nose with the back of her hand. She had a week after the incident where she stayed entirely to the forest, never stepping foot on campus save for the classes she decided she couldn't skip a second time. She'd since recovered from her paranoia, but there was a time where she wanted to call Loic and make him take her back home. "Not anymore." She looked back up and blinked, then all at once, collapsed onto the bed she was sitting on, outstretching her arms and looking up towards the ceiling. "Maybe."

Electricity flickered up her arm. "Let me deal with her." There had to be a better way to say it, a better way to propose it, but she'd never been great with words. That was the only phrase that flashed to mind. The prefects and guardians were useless. They'd just make things worse. Her voice lowered to a hush. "I'll make sure it never happens again." She'd pay her back. This, at least, was something she understood... Kayla wasn't meant to be a nurse, but she could do this one thing.

The electricity did not make Kaya look back up, propping her elbow so that she could face Kayla. It was her proposal of revenge. It had come across her mind a few times, hurting or killing the girl. She was scared, though. Kayla surely had a bravery to her, and her mouth hung open a little as she studied her fellow nurse. "That is a strange statement for a nurse to say." She blinked and let herself go crosseyed as a particularly large piece of dust floated past her nose. "I could do it," she said, in the midst of her distraction.

"You could?" She remembered the explosions, the flash of a razor-thin disc, the cuts and bruises when Larissa had carried her into the infirmary. Maybe she could. Kayla didn't even know her power, or what she could do with it, but that still didn't sit right with her. With a grimace, she let her gaze drop to the desk. "I know. I'm not cut out to be a nurse." When she'd first signed up, she'd thought it was something she wanted, but things didn't turn out like she thought. They made her keep working there as a punishment. The Headmaster didn't call it that, but that's what it was. "But this is something I can handle."

"How will you find her?" Kaya was suddenly very interested. She sat on an angle at the side of the bed. Despite the insinuations of violence, she treated it like something grandeur, like a magic trick or a special job. Her knees were high, and though the bed was short, her feet only touched the ground by her toes. "Are you going to find her now? Can I come?" Though she was now a nurse, she seemed pretty okay with abandoning the infirmary. Maybe Kayla could teach her to fight alongside nursely duties. Kaya needed direly to learn how to fight, or rather to get in the mindset of fighting. That was the reason she didn't fight back against Arbor. She froze, and was scared. This girl, though, seemed like nothing would scare her.

How would she find her? That was a good question. Kayla hadn't thought that far ahead, but it couldn't be hard. If she was in one of Kaya's classes, then they just had to track her down. "Right now...?" The way she talked about it made her sound like a little kid. "It's not going to be pretty," she warned, a frown spreading across her face. Electricity twined around her wrist. "You might get hurt. I might get hurt." It twinged at her pride, but there was a chance she'd lose. When it came to that girl, that was just a fact. And if that happened, she didn't want Kaya nearby. She didn't want her coming back to this infirmary as a patient again if she could help it. "I don't think that's a good idea."

She seemed visibly disappointed with Kayla's verdict, planting her feet flat on the ground as the older nurse denied her. She brought them up on the frame of the bed and hugged her knees. "If I don't go, you may have a bigger chance to get hurt than if not so." She looked at Kayla in the eyes, which seemed to glow even as a silhouette painted itself over her in the rising sun. Her gaze was low despite being on eye level with the girl; her chin was down and her eyes were up, as if her face was trying to turn from her but she was fighting to alleviate this impulse. Finally, her eyes caved in, partially due to a movement of light in the corner of her eye, the dawn of morning trudging along. Her gaze was preoccupied for a moment. "If I come along, you will defeat her. There is no way you will not." Then, her eyes flitted back, like an innocent child who was suggesting a time in the park after school to her parents, a hesitant kind of simpleness. "Let me come, Miss Kayla."
