"That's very likely, but it won't do you much good to be confined for the duration. Activity will help."

"What's the date?" He asked softly. They'd strung him out so bad and kept him confined most of the time he had no idea how long he'd been in captivity. Days had bled into weeks, then months, then years.

"It's March 9th," Hale supplied.

His brow furrowed a little. "And the year?"

"February 8th, 2016." That was the Chinese New Year. "We'd gone to a celebration in Shanghai."

"That... is... concerning," Hale murmured. "Are you averse to being checked out by our medical personnel?"

He shook his head. "I would welcome it in fact." He had been moved around a lot, frequently drugged and assaulted. When he wasn't with a 'client' he'd been kept mostly in confinement. No windows. No set mealtimes. The days had all bled together after a while and he'd lost the ability to tell time. Frankly, he was surprised he survived two years, even if it felt like longer.

"Good," Hale gave him another faint smile. "We'll ensure there's no permanent damage."

Yuri's only humane treatment of Axel was the way he screened clients. Pretty much the only stipulations were they had to be STI free, and no permanent damage or scarring wad to be inflicted. Anything else was fair game.

"Thank you." He said softly, tiredly. He had long begun to question his faith but now he was maybe starting to see the potential light in the dark. There can be no pleasure without pain. No love without hate. No heat without cold. No light without dark. No freedom without oppression.

"Of course," Hale murmured. "I deeply apologize for the manner in which we discovered you."

He smiled softly and shook his head. "You discovered me. That counts for something."

"Once I am--out of the woods, as they say--I will also be out of your hair." Though, he didn't know where he would go. He couldn't go back to his old Temple, Yuri would know to look for him there. Without physical confirmation of his death it was unlikely Yuri would ever stop looking for him. They were 'family' after all.

He wanted to argue and say he didn't need protecting. He wanted to say he wasn't afraid, but neither statement would be true. "That's what my uncle told me they would do at the temple. Yuri found me anyway." His eyes began to water with barely contained tears.

Safety was a luxury Axel didn't think he would ever be able to afford again, but if all of these people were like him, maybe that could change? Could that change?

The tears that had been brimming in his eyes suddenly spilled forth and he buried his face in the tops of his thighs. He thought he was going to die that way, in that place. He had been resolved to that fate, had even been welcoming it, desiring it. The sweet release of death. And now this... He hadn't felt hope in so long it was overwhelming.

"I'm sorry." He felt impossibly lost. He didn't know what to say so he just nodded. He sniffled as he lifted his face and bashed at his eyes with teh cuffs of the sleeves of his sweater. "I think--I'm just tired." And sick. So very sick.

"Understandably," Hale murmured sympathetically. "Would you like to be left alone?"

Axel sighed and regardless if it was overstepping any bounds or not, he laid down with his head in Hale's lap and sort of curled up against him. Hale was the first person in a long time ago didn't seem effected in some way by his presence. It was--relieving.

Hale didn't shift him away, he simply queued the television up to something half decent, sorry Axel it was like The West Wing because Hale was so boring, and idly stroked the back of his hair.
