“So, what made you schedule this appointment specifically?” Dr. Franco asked.

“I think I need some new tranquility techniques… the old ones are insufficient for what I have on my plate right now.” Nate answered.

“Why don’t you tell me about what’s going on?”

Nate sighed pensively. “Well… it all started when I accidentally created a wound in time and space and made a portal to the underworld.”

“Yes, our feelings can feel like a bit of a black hole sometimes. Seemingly neutral things can trigger traumatic episodes.”

Nate laughed. “You think that’s bad? Wait until you hear about the shape shifting demon-witch and her hive mind army that’re trying to kill everyone in town.”
