Acer nodded a little bit, but Xiphi was worried.
Be careful, brother... don't use all of your power, we can't both wind up this way...
He shook his head, and placed one hand on the woman's head, and the other over her stomach.
I'll be fine, Xiphi... this won't drain me so badly. I've been resting all day, recharging, I'll be fine. And besides, you can help me if it gets bad.
She agreed, and his eyes began to glow. The skin over his hands glowed, then turned into what looked like mercury or liquid silver, and thin tendrils of it pierced into her skin over the wounds. They moved through her bloodstream, driving out the shards and the fever that was inside, feeling as if ice water was running through her veins the whole time. Finally, the silvery liquids receeded back into his hands, and pe pulled them off her, looking slightly tired. She, however, would be fine, if shaken from his... unusual method of treatment. Not many people were used to being treated by intelligent metal...
"There... I have done all i can..."
The silvery sheen on his hands faded, back into marble colored skin, and he sat back against the wall, resting his hand on the black blade at his side.
