one_word: (Disturbing)
[personal profile] one_word
I couldn't name her. It was on the tip of my tongue, her name, but every time I looked at her I was distracted. As though a frictionless field surrounded her against which my gaze slid away, looking directly at her was simply impossible. That being the case, even though I couldn't remember her name, I couldn't call her by another. Being unable to look at her was bad enough, but calling her by some word not her own seemed to make it worse, disrespectful somehow. "Nameless," was a misnomer. But named, she'd be human, and in her state, so badly burned she was unrecognizable, I couldn't let her be human. That would be too much pain to bear.
