It all seemed too much too fast. There was registering as an Elemental, then there was training. It just seemed like a lot of work which showed on her face. She was worried. It seemed as if she wasn’t going to be good at this or even get the hang of her powers. As she sat down, she tried her best to keep up with the suggestions that he was putting out there. Her head was spinning in so many directions, she didn’t know what way was up or what exactly was going on. As he continued to spin off ideas of training for her, she quickly snapped back to reality when she heard the door open and her attention was diverted. A young girl came in and walked over to Ryan.
The young girl seemed shy and timid at first, but with Ryan, she was completely comfortable. Reagan watched the interaction between the two and couldn’t help but smile a little at how he treated the young girl. She was a beautiful little one but even Reagan could recognize a child who had been through tough times for she was one as well, losing both of her parents when she was a young child. Her eyes said it all. Reagan frowned, knowing full well that Jessica was a troubled young girl.
When Jessica asked who Reagan was, she looked over at Ryan and smiled a little at his answer. Her eyes fell to the young girl and shook her head. “No no, I want to be as pretty as you.” She as she took the little girls hand in her own and shook it gently. Once Ryan sent her away, and he walked over to the wall to hang up her picture, he began to explain her story. Reagan knew that she had rough past but whenever Ryan explained in full gory detail, Reagan felt her stomach come up into her throat. She swallowed hard and cleared her throat.
“That poor girl. I couldn’t imagine.” She whispered. She felt horrible for Jessica. To say that she was keeping up appearances very well was an understatement. It was obvious that she was shy and had a lot of issues but something like that should cause any child to be in an insane asylum. “I understand. She must be one of your more complex cases. I can’t imagine having to have had found her. I don’t know how you can stand it.” She said shaking her head gently. “Whatever you do, I admire it.”
Reagan knew that Ryan wasn't who showed emotion that well but she knew that deep down he cared about the people he worked with, his family, and her. She walked over to him and gently wrapped her arms around his waist gently and kissed the back of his neck gently. “You are, truly, an amazing person Ryan Blackwood. I’ll never understand how I got to be so lucky to be called yours. I hope you knew that I’ll always be by your side, no matter what.” She whispered before taking a deep breath.
“I don’t want to bother you while you’re working. Why don’t you show me where to go next and I’ll go from there”, she said as she turned him around to face her. She reached up and gently laid a hand on his face and smiled. “And later when we are both home, we can talk about that house that we want to build. How’s that?” she asked.
