Orion silently listened to Darius, knowing that the male was only looking out for him, like always. It still hurt, but he did understand why he had been sent back with the others and why Zieg had remained. He still felt like something was wrong with him, but maybe Darius was right. Relaxing more, he finally smiled, head shaking just a little bit, not liking that Darius thought he wasn’t forgiven.
“Already, forgave you… I was just incredibly worried.” He managed, smiling faintly before the smile faded into a deep frown when told how lucky he was that only Zade had been sent. His gaze shifted down towards the ground as he wondered just who else they might have sent. Would they have terminated him for his actions? Surely not… right? Not so sure, Orion kept those thoughts to himself and instead focused on what to tell Darius about the attacker, though he did respond to put Darius at ease, “I… I promise I’ll be angry more productively next time.”
Closing his eyes a moment, he thought back to the fourth ring and honed in specifically on the memories of the attack, his anger rising yet again. His jaw clenched tightly while fingers curled back up into fists, hating how weak and useless he felt during the attack. Grimacing a moment, he groaned, head shaking.
“Well, I hope this isn’t in the report, but I called Morrigan an ignorant bitch… out loud while she was shooting towards me.” Head shaking, he once again started to focus, needing to recall the words spoken to him. “Said I was refusing to fight back… that I could fight and wouldn’t. Said I was a coward for not using what I am.” Taking a breath, he growled softly, fingers clenching even harder. “Called me a poor ignorant soul and said I know nothing… then said they would leave me alive this time, but I needed to find the truth. That I needed to find out what was really happening and that I needed to question what I know and what I think is the truth.” He frowned, jaw tightening harsh enough to grind some teeth. “Fucking bastard never once showed their face. Just used ice to thrash us…” He fought to gain control of his anger, not wanting to do anything stupid again.
