Elena was lying on the couch, much to Damon’s discontent, while Meredith did some basic tests.
“How long have you been feeling like this?” she asked while she checked Elena’s eyes.
“Started this morning, when I woke up” Elena answered softly.
“And you’re having pain?” Meredith continued, checking Elena’s ears. “Where exactly?”
“My shoulders. My knees. My ankles. My hips” Elena summed up frowning, pausing after every joint she mentioned.
“Open your mouth” Meredith ordered and Elena obeyed. “Looks just fine” she mumbled and Elena closed her mouth again. “I’m going to take a little blood and have it tested”
“Is that necessary?” Elena asked a little reluctant.
“Since when are you afraid of needles?” Damon frowned and Elena shot him an annoyed glance. “I’m not scared. Go ahead. Do it”
Meredith prepared the syringe. “Let’s not forget, you still have cancer”
Elena shook her head. “No, no, that’s not it. I’m sure of it. I’ve been drinking chá every single day. My cancer is gone”
“Tea? What kind of tea?” Meredith asked a little stunned as she injected the syringe in Elena’s vain.
“I don’t know. Caroline’s supplying me, but it’s been really helpful and the pain only started today, which is why I think it has everything to do with last night’s training and nothing with the cancer”
Meredith shook her head disbelieving. “Well, we’ll see once the results are available, but I hope for your sake that you’re right”
