Phillipa managed a chuckle, though it came out more wheezy than she liked, "I definitely feel like I'm dying, but I guess one would when they had spent the better part of the day vomiting." Costa's treatment had been particularly vicious this morning, and the potions pumping through her system had made her stomach revolt. It definitely didn't get easier, and Healer Costa had been telling the truth when she'd said that it would be a brutal.
Letting her head rest on Eleanor's shoulder, she swiped her thumb over the woman's smooth hand, "You know I've never told Eloise about her father. I'm not sure why, it's not like he was a bad man. I just..." She swallowed, struggling to find the words. She'd never told anyone this not even Meja, but beneath the sun's rays, standing at deaths door, Phillipa suddenly felt like she had to tell someone. "When I fell pregnant with her, he had insisted on me having an abortion. He had never wanted kids, and that was something that wasn't ever going to change. I had thought that too. Children were...messy, but when I booked my appointment, I was lying on the bed, the nurse brought me the potion, but for the life of me, I couldn't get myself to drink it." Phillipa's voice was small, but not because she was sick, small because she was ashamed. Small because she was unsure the woman would react. "I told him I had the abortion and he was so happy. Eleanor you should have seen his face and it broke me. I knew I had to leave if I wanted this child. So I did. I left and I raised Eloise by myself while her father doesn't even know she exists."
