Javier walked into the house.
"Zaf! You home?" He walked into the kitchen sometimes she left a note if something in the Sanctuary occurred. Except not this time. He walked into the living room and there he saw his wife. Javier knelt beside her. She was barely stirring. Zafira was so bloody it wasn't even funny. Her eyes opened but for some reason she couldn't focus on him. Her one leg was stone. But she wasn't an Elemental she was if anything opposite of it.
"Zaf can you hear me?" He asked.
"Javier?" She asked weakly. She couldn't focus on him.
"Yes Zaf. What happened?" He asked. She spoke quietly
"Niccolo." She murmured. Seeing she wasn't moving he phoned the Sanctuary using her phone.
A few hours later the doctors finally allowed him to see her. She was pretty weak but they managed to fix the face and her arms and one leg. The leg of stone was still stone. They said the leg is going to have to heal on it's own like the earth power. He walked into the room. Zafira was awake now but fear was in her eyes.
"Zaf." He murmured taking her one hand,Her eyes tried to find him.
"I can't see." She told him. "My organs are all messed up they said I can survive like this until they work on it bit by bit." Javier stroked her arm.
"What will they help your sight?"
"I...I...don't know. They said they will try and I don't want to have to give up my position as Grand Mage. I worked so hard for it and I will not give up." Javier smiled thinking of how determined she is. He remembered her determination in her younger days. He kissed her cheek. She closed her eyes and Javier knew she was succumbing to the drugs they had her on. They would be trying to arrange her organs properly. Javier took another look at her and sighed. He saw another mage beside him. Zafira's Prime Detective
"Horrible isn't it?" She asked. Javier merely nodded.
"She said Niccolo did this to her. I didn't get much more because she honestly was almost dead. " Javier nodded and his voice was now cold,
"I will murder Niccolo!" He vowed.
Zafira woke up again still sightless. She tried to move her hands but it didn't work. She groaned they had managed to get the eyelids off the bat. Both hands were wrapped in a bandage like thing. Her organs everytime they operated someone would rework them. It was long and Zafira was in pain still. She couldn't tell who was here and who wasn't. Her dreams were haunted by the pain from Niccolo. She had even woken up sobbing. Sensitives were working whenever she wasn't being operated on to reverse the blindness. Nobody wanted to lose her. She felt someone stroke her arm. Her voice even sounded weak,
"Javier?" She asked. She heard the reply,
"Yes Zaffy I got you."
"I want to see." She sighed. The black was scary. Too scary. Javier put arms around her
"Hush my love."
