"Come on girls, momma's going to take out some aggression while you two play, okay?"

She was tired, restless even. Around the hut, she'd done the cleaning, fixing up, and whatever manual labor that needed to be done and she still didn't feel any better.  Of course, the whole deal with rapture wasn't solved, but there was only so much they could do and even she knew that she couldn't patrol every day of every hour, though a part of her wished it. It wasn't her place though..if anything she hoped that Lipton would find Lydia, find her and go back to being the happy, content family that he and Jane were.

She looked at the girls playing under the shade of the deck, their wooden toys being stacked and moved about in a way that only a one-year old could find fun.

Maybe we do need to move, she thought. As much as she didn't like the thought of facing people just yet, maybe another change of pace would be good for them.

No..what would be good for her was some shadow boxing. In their-in her-front yard, there was a thick tree that was perfect for the deed, its trunk smooth and wide enough for her to wrap a long coil of rope around and use it as a punch/kick target. She'd replaced it several times since she'd first moved to the hut, but it was easier than going to the punching back in the Hidden Hamlet-nice as the people there were.

Making sure that the girls were content (she had some water and snacks just incase), and Max was within sight (and safely chewing on something he hunted) Sonya pulled on a set of combat gloves, flexed her shoulders a bit-and started going to town on the tree.

punch...punch..turn..jab

roundhouse kick...triple kick

turn..jump crescent kick...


She was soon lost in a pattern, visualizing the tree as her opponent and delivering blow after blow. They were automatic now, her body feeling the endorphin rush but there was no longer any sense of enjoyment or relief in the blows.

Helen actually didn't have Gregory with her today, seeing as how she liked to be sure he had plenty of time to bond with Will and had decided to go for a run of her own. She had lost the baby weight several months back but her metabolism being what it was, she needed to continue a high level of physical activity in order to keep that figure she'd worked so hard to regain.

Once she came past Sonya's, she paused for a moment, jogging in place to keep her heart rate up. "What'd the tree do to you today, hmm?"

"That's quite possible," Helen agreed. Physical activity to work out complex emotion had always been a favorite of hers - not that she was entirely certain that had been Sonya's motivation in working quite so hard.

"You know, my house back home had an entire gym in it. Anything you could think of was there. Pity it isn't here, isn't it?"

"Mine has not begun to walk or talk yet so I believe I am immune for a little while." Soon enough, Gregory would be on his feet and into everything and at that point, she would have to be more concerned. As it was, he was only crawling a bit and as long as Helen kept him corralled, it wasn't a problem.

"Yours are at the age where everything goes into the mouth. I don't envy you."

"As an English woman, I should refuse on principle but I don't think that I will," Helen teased.

"It's too bloody hot to drink hot tea in the middle of the afternoon no matter how much I prefer it."

"Someone seems to need a n-a-p," Helen said, cautiously spelling out the word on the off chance the girls had figured it out.

"I might have one myself when I get home."

"I've plenty of time," Helen promised, settling at the table to wait. Gregory tended to go to sleep quickly and hopefully the girls were the same.

"It's quite all right. Everyone with children understands a need for rearranging schedules."

The tea was actually quite good and she drank it a little quicker than maybe she should have.

"And happens much quicker than you'd think, even in a place so humid as the island," Helen said, nodding in agreement.

"I'm surprised we don't have more issues with that in the clinic on a regular basis but I suppose the population's learned to adapt."

"Ah, yes, but I doubt the rest of our citizenry knows that," Helen said, shaking her head.

"Then again, there's a lot of industrious and clever people who end up here. I'm surprised we don't end up with more just baseline humans."

"Because everyone is different. Everything is something new," Helen said, shrugging.

"I've never had an issue with getting jaded."

"There's so many, I don't know that I could choose just one," Helen said, thinking it over. "And so many of my memories are personal and have very little to do with science. I'd have to say discovering werewolves was up there. We call them HAPs, though. Hyper accelerated proteans."

"It's usually a good course of action," Helen agreed. "Putting limitations on things only serves to give you massive blinders when it comes to seeing and being aware of the world around you."

"People don't like things they can't explain," Helen agreed. "I spent my whole life working against that."

"I don't play video games, I wouldn't know," Helen said, shrugging slightly. "I barely even watch television."
