Let me tell you a few things about my roommate, Octavia. After all, she saved my life.

Author's Note:

"Aaaaaaaaaaaand..." Dr. Terra clicks a stopwatch. "Stop."

I obey her.

And for once...

...I don't notice any difference.

I am the same pony when inhaling and exhaling.

Somehow, it's always been this way.

I slowly open my naked eyes.

The magenta is everywhere... and yet nowhere. If I try hard enough—in that I don't try at all—I find that I can ignore it. Swim through it. Breathe through the strange medium like I've always had gills.

Only now have I begun using them. It's a little bit painful... a teensy bit dizzying...

...but I can manage.

I can manage.

"How do you feel?" she asks.

I stand up, squirming slightly. I look up at her.

She fidgets where she stands.

I raise an eyebrow.

"It's just..." Dr. Terra smiles, hugging the clipboard to her chest. "...I have to admit. I... I almost didn't expect this kind of progress. I mean..." She bites her lip. "To call it 'miraculous' would be unprofessional, but..." Her eyes narrow. "Are you certain your previous physicians were actually qualified?"

I blink curiously.

"Because... because it's almost as if half the symptoms don't even exist anymore. Surely you got second opinions during all these years."

I look at her. I shrug... and then I smile.

She shrugs back. A nervous chuckle, and she flips through her clipboard. "Uhm..." A dry gulp. "You're quite the enigma, Miss Scratch. I'm very happy that Miss Capricorn requested that I work with you."

I nod. I breathe easily.

I can breathe easily...

"And... I know it's none of my business, but..." She cocks her head curiously to the side. "...how goes the other project that you're working on?"

I stare at her from across the hospital room.

A dumb grin hangs off my muzzle.
