Rane: I don't have to grow up but if I stay like this, I hurt things. So whether I age or not I need to change...or that's what they think.
Sakker: Maybe. Probably. I did.
Chris: Well, what do _you_ think?
Rane: i'm scared.
Chris: What kind of scared? Are you scared of the choice?
Rane: scared that if I lose control then it leaves openings for pain. and changing would probably mean being less in control... less rigid.
