HHHH I really am glad you love how I write Chase! It’s not completely irreversible, he can be saved, but it depends on if they can get him away from Anti long enough to fix him. ;D
Anti hasn’t even started doing anything to Henrik yet. They’re in some apartment, with Henrik sitting on a couch. He’s still able to move around freely, he can get his hands into anything available. It’s trying to leave that causes the issues; Anti had somehow managed to trap every exit with some electric force field that is no doubt coming from his own abilities, and the thought terrifies Henrik moreso than previous.
Is it just him, or has Anti gotten more powerful lately?
He doesn’t care about escaping right now though. That is something he can deal with later, his focus is on Chase. Chase is slumped over on a chair currently, staring up at Anti with the most adoring expression Henrik had ever seen on his face. Chase had never even looked at Stacy with that expression, and it twists Henrik’s stomach. He could jump up and hide in the room, but he knows Anti is going to drag Chase in there and force the doctor to keep watching.
Anti’s petting Chase, pressing his thumbs into the sides of Chase’s neck. Chase is limp, relaxed, with eyes half lidded and nearly closing. It’s clearly some sort of conditioning, maybe hypnosis? Henrik tilts his head to the side as he watches, half filled with disgust, half curiosity. He can hear a faint static hum that tells him Anti is shocking Chase somehow, but clearly it’s not a painful action.
Chase looks as if he’s in a trance.
