Characters: Candice Wilmer, Jimmy Lee
Summary: Some secrets must be kept.
Jimmy expected that the procedure wouldn't be painless, most experiences involving him and doctors weren't. He had developed a high pain tolerance over the years, his body already bore scars from his experiences. That said, tolerating pain was different from enjoying it, and the body still found ways to rebel against someone, there was so much mental pushing through pain before the body worked for its own best interest.
He had made it home, sore all over and especially at the site of the injection. Mohinder had told him what to be on alert for, and gave Jimmy explicit instructions what to do if he felt worse or different. Curling up on the faded couch in his living room, he tried too sleep, in hope that he'd look more lively for the training session he was slated to lead hours later.
