"Ohh, I guess that makes sense."
The girl pondered on the euphemism idea, though then again, she had encountered many things like that, hadn't she? Poetry was loaded with that stuff, and sometimes they were so complicated that she didn't understand what it meant unless she looked up what the hell the poem was trying to say. Deciphering the meanings of things she couldn't just sense was tricky to her, but she enjoyed the mystery of it nonetheless... But again, connecting funny farm to asylum was a massive stretch of logic to her. There was no horses choking out bad puns in an asylum... At least not in reality.
Though, onto far more serious matters, she placed her hands within Ulv's, staring down at the now glowing and warm palms as she listened to the brawny woman's explanation of how this would work, in a rather colorful way. She stared quietly at the embracing glow, but then shut her eyes. She did as instructed, trying to think of something she indeed wanted fixed within her, though she was in this state for several minutes, appearing to become more and more unsure. Her grasp on the warming palms tightened, as she tried to summon something she herself wanted to fix within her being.
But her grip loosened, her breath evened, as her eyes opened, a bit of hesitance present, but she spoke, "..I'm sorry but, I can't think of anything I truly wish to fix, at least, not within myself.."
She began, seeming a bit sad to say such, but she had to be honest, "I don't... Feel as if I have any 'great despair' in me. Even if I have no choice in the matter of sensing other's emotions, it isn't something i'm constantly suffering from, it's just a little pain in a little moment, like a lot of things are," She smiled gently, thumbs softly caressing Ulv's palms as she spoke, "My problems are more.. External.. Much of my family's broken and lost to madness, demons are suffering under their reign, tensions are rising in general.."
She gently cringed as she remembered her mother devouring a crowd of protesters, and the only thing she could do was wail and cling to her like a snotty child, but she returned to smiling, "..I get it, you're concerned about me, but... Maybe getting used to how I am won't be so bad? Maybe things.. Might be different. I mean, hey, bright lights and sounds don't bother me much anymore, and I can actually go into a city without bordering into a meltdown if everything's calm. Maybe... If I give it more time and practice, I'll be able to handle all that stuff."
Her grip had tightened and released as she spoke her thoughts, "Sure I need some help, but, I don't think this way," She brought their hands up momentarily, as to clearly gesture what she meant, "Is the way for me... I'm appreciative of your care, even if we just met, don't take it the wrong way.. I think I just need more people like you in my life... More support, more love... I feel really lonely, often, even if I am connected to so many beings..."
Head dipped, she uttered one last, gentle phrase; "Can I just.. Try?"
