When Locke came to sit beside him, Elikos shifted. Straightening he leaned forward and rested his hands upon his knees. With slightly bowed head he frowned. The events of tonight were sitting heavy in his gut. A part of him wished that he'd taken that last blow. Another was glad that The Reaper was the one to do it. Still another was cringing that he'd ever gone back to Walled at all.

Seeing Hike again, seeing the Monster again. Memories he'd hoped had been long buried tore themselves out of their graves to haunt him again. He shuddered.

"You, I didn't make go to the creche for a few reasons. One, you are thirteen. Second, you had been living on your own on the streets for several turns. Hike...he's what...maybe ten? On top of that, yes, he's had a horrible life, but he's lived it under someone else's roof. He's not used to being on his own. So if he stays here and he doesn't go to the creche, then he'd be your responsibility to watch. I can't be here all the time to watch him. Is that something you'd be willing to do?"

He glanced over briefly as Locke spoke. He did not keep his eyes upon him. Instead he straightened again and his frown grew. His gaze flicked over to where Hike and two others were heading to the bath. Staring at Hike's back, he looked back to Locke with a shake of his head. His voice, held naturally at a low volume was even quieter as he admitted. "I can't." To explain that he wasn't trying to be selfish but wondering if he was, he opened his mouth to reveal something. Shaking his head again he changed his mind. "Ya don' understand." He muttered unhappily instead.

"Maybe yur right. Maybe he'll be okay elsewhere or at the creche or somethin'."
