Rattle the Cage || Mackenzie and Dr. Granger
Mackenzie did not want to go and see this doctor again, since she nearly had a psychotic break last time, she felt fragile and things that are fragile -unless handled with the upmost care- shattered. Carter had brought her over even though he wasn’t allowed to come into the meetings, that made her feel a little better, that the only separation between them would be a single door, thin, wooden and somehow confining. She felt impossibly claustrophobic, as if someone was trying to pop her lungs with their fists. Mack made herself take a deep breath then knocked on the door twice with a shaking hand before stepping inside. She was right on time for her appointment. You’ll be fine, you have to do this, you have to be okay. You have to be okay for Carter and Fiyero, she told herself. Mack wasn’t a child anymore, she had to face her problems so that she could get past them, but another breakdown like that and she was afraid it would hurt her marriage, because she inadvertently shut Carter out. She wanted his help but he didnt know how to give it. Mackenzie felt like she needed to learn how to earn it.
