(014. you're hiding something, 'cause it's burning through your eyes;
I try to get it out, but all I hear from you are lies
)

It was funny, Harry thought, how there were some days where Zeta would fall into a deep depression, her eyes clouded and troubled for hours as she would stare into nothing. It was in those times that she would revert to her initial state, completely unresponsive to all stimuli. These periods would only last a few hours, a couple of days at the most, but those hours were unnerving: evidently something had happened, but she would never explain what she was thinking. But he could tell something was terribly wrong, because no one should have such horror-filled, sad eyes.

*

Natalie was always disturbed by her friend Zoë’s drastic mood swings. One moment, she’d be that funny, flirty girl that she was so fond of, and then someone would mention something, and she would freeze, staring into space with such empty eyes that it frightened her. Usually, a slight touch on the arm or an inquiry would snap her out of it, but there were sometimes that she would be in her depression for days, going through the motions of life with those dead eyes.

She had asked what was wrong once. It had been a mistake. Zoë had turned on her so fast that Natalie had back-pedalled in fear. The fire and fury in those once-dead eyes had ensured that Natalie would never know the answer.

*

Jack knew better than to ask about her depressions. He knew that she had things that she had not dealt with, horrible things that would cause her to drift in and out of reality and memory for days. She would wander the halls of the TARDIS endlessly, sometimes mumbling things under her breath, sometimes with her hand trailing along the walls (as if she were comforting the ship?), sometimes simply staring blankly in front of her. But he knew better than to ask what was wrong. She’d tell him in her own time.
