Talia placed her fingers over the man’s wound, light glowing out of them as she gently passed her hand on the injury, closing it. Not even a scar is left.
“ There, done! You shouldn’t feel any pain, it wasn’t very deep. “
The man nods, and exits the room, thanking Talia.
“ You have to stop this Talia. You can’t keep killing people for him. For the white rose. “
Jack says. He’s not really ...
I thought I was healing people.
For years now, I thought I was doing good
But no. I wasn’t. I’m not. I don’t.
Theres am opposite for everything…
Happiness - Sadness
Talking - Mute
Tall - Short
Nice - Mean
Beautiful - Ugly
Life - Death
I thought I was giving life. But I found out I’m doing the opposite. I’m bringing death closer....
He let out a soft sigh, sitting up and looking at the lady he had just healed. She had come to him a few times, and although he continued healing her with his magic, she only seemed to be getting worse.
“There you go miss, you should be good” He said, getting to his feet and sighing happily. Another job well done. “Call me again if you need me, alright ma’am?” He added, walking to the door and pu...
We have all heard of peoplle with hands that can heal. You could believe in a higher power or not, but that does not change hearing about someone being healed when someone else has laid hands on them. If you do believe in a higher power you may have heard more of those stories about healing hands. I grew up believing in God myself. I have read the bible and the many stories about Jesus healing pe...
Rain beated against the tents that served as an infirmary of sorts. The pale, overtired woman winced slightly as my cold, clammy hands settled onto her stomach.
“Why there?” She questioned.
Her voice pulled me from my disassociation, my fatigued brain taking an extra second to process what she said.
“Oh,” I glanced at my hands, “the stomach is the most central point of the body. Since your pain...

“I built the walls,I built the floo...
Elise’s brow shone with a thin sheen of sweat, furrowed and focused. Her hands held over the body of yet another suffering from the recent catastrophe. The light that echoed off her palms flickered and went out.
She redoubled her efforts and the body lain out beneath her jolted as if struct with electricity. The gasp of air was enough to know she’d brought them back but how many more times could ...
“Martha,” I called out while knocking on the door.
After a few seconds, I called out again, “Martha!” Still no answer.
I went to the window, peering past the curtains. A few of the lights were on in a far room, but there wasn’t any apparent movement. Moving back to the door, I tried jimmying the knob to see if it would open. No luck.
At that point, I wondered if I was letting what Lana had said...
“It’s the most I can do,” I say with a sweetened smile after healing my final patient for the night.
He thanks me profusely, pulling me in for yet another hug. Though I’m quite exhausted at the moment, I can’t contain the smile that creeps onto my face.
