Bane’s scar

touch the scar, run away

*nuzzles it*

Though Bane had no way of viewing his back, all he needed was to see the expression on Melisande’s face when the Minerva cast had been removed to know that the sight was unpleasant. Yet with Talia, the scars often fascinated her.
            “Does it hurt, Ba-ba?” she had asked while gently sponging the incision under the doctor’s supervision shortly after the stitches had been taken out.
            “No,” he lied.
            When she was finished, she kissed the incision once, like he sometimes did when she had fallen and scraped herself. “There,” she mimicked him. “Now it will be all better.”

            But, as the months passed, Bane eventually accepted that he would never again be “all better.”
