Wishing On A Star
By Demeter


"You might want to let go of her hand now."

He should be in a holding cell but Brink is rather lucky: At the moment, he is the only one who seems to have an idea of what is happening in the chair and how to get them the results they deperately need.

Lindsay glares at him but reluctantly follows his suggestion. Truth be told, she is scared beyong imagination of having to give Cindy's life into the hands of this... Kid... And that would be a nice way to put it. She finds him irritating to no end, but she doesn't think he's going to play around in a room full of cops and attorneys. Still, the fear keeps gnawing at her. You can't completely undo a person's experiences, they are stored in the body as well as in the mind. Caroline is not the same person she would have been without the 'addition' of Echo and Omega.

"Are you comfortable?" he asks Cindy and with a smile she answers, "Yes, thank you."

Lindsay wants to slap him for even talking to her. That might be a result of being exhausted.

The chair is being lowered, and Brink inserts the scan into the according slot. The process begins. Lindsay hasn't been praying in a long time but in that moment, she does.
