Main Fiction: Defending Elysium by Brandon Sanderson
The woman thrashed and spasmed in the hospital bed. Her dark hair was matted to her
head with sweat, and her uncontrolled motions seemed almost epileptic. Her eyes,
however, did not have the wildness of the insane—instead they were focused.
Determined. She was not mad; she just couldn’t control her muscles. She kept waving her
hands in front of her with awkward movements, movements that seemed strangely
familiar to Jason.
And she did it all in silence, never uttering a word.
Jason switched off the holovid, then leaned back in his chair. He had watched the vid
a dozen times, but it still confused him. However, he couldn’t do anything until he arrived
at Evensong. Until then, he would simply have to bide his time.
