From The Grey House:
Charlie gave her one last look, then left the van. She watched him run inside, then carefully slumped a little bit. She laid her head on the headrest and took deep breaths, trying to relax. Her shoulder hurt. The doctor had offered her painkillers, but she refused. She still didn’t like to use any kind of drug. Natalia learned how to control her pain with breathing techniques, but sometimes it wasn’t enough. She wished she had told Charlie to get her some pain relievers.
