Janna dropped her gaze ever so slightly so that she could appear even just a little less confronting. “Connection is an important thing. It helps us feel seen,” she said softly. “And I can tell that that was a lot for you to tell you, so I’m proud of you for venturing there with someone you don’t really know. It makes you very courageous, Viyara.”

At the word courageous, Viyara turned her head again and looked once more straight at Janna. “Really?” she asked softly and uncertainly. She had never thought of telling her story as an act of courage and found it hard to believe that it was.

Kingston met her gaze and smiled softly. “Yes, really.”

“Was this… friend of yours the first person you’ve spoken to about this… topic?” Janna asked.

Viyara nodded ever so slightly. “There was one other person, but with them I only hinted at a few things. He is the first one I told. Not in any details, but more than I’ve ever told anyone before,” she replied softly. There was a quiver in her voice and she had began to shiver a little as she was suddenly feeling cold.

Janna nodded slowly. “And how did you feel after sharing that story with your friend?”

Viyara pondered that question for a moment and then shook her head. “I’m not sure. I felt exhausted, but otherwise … I don’t know,” she replied, her brows pulled tightly together. Naming emotions had never been her strength. Apart from things like happiness, anger or sadness that is. And while in some ways both of those intense times with Daggum were very vivid in her memory, in other ways it also was rather hazy. Just like a lot of the past few days and weeks was very vivid and hazy at the same time.
