"Empty my mind of all thought..."
"Should be easy for you!" There was no malice or ill intent in Psychemon's teasing, but that didn't mean it didn't bother Diego. The whole point of this meditation exercise was supposed to be that calmness and serenity, outside and in, was supposed to help the young man be a little less anxious in his everyday life. The only problem is there were two minds in his skull, and he only had any control over half of them.
"Psychemon, please." The conversation was one-sided from the point of view of most people. It looked and sounded like this 13-year-old was just muttering to himself. Only he could hear the constant interjections of the spirit of the mind, and he had no direct control over them. The best he could do was try to bargain with it. "I can't do this if you... do that."
"Well what am I s'posed to do?"
"Do it with me."
"I don't wanna! It sounds boring!"
"I'm begging you, please." Diego was taking measures to make sure at least he didn't make himself a public spectacle. He was off any of the beaten paths, plopped himself right down in the middle of the grass with hopefully no one around him. He was also trying to keep his voice down, but as Psychemon continued to upset him his volume rose slightly. "I need to try this. But I can't do it unless you do it with me. It's not gonna work if my head is quiet but yours keeps buzzing. Can you just do it for... for a half hour? Please?"
"...OK. You said please." At last! Diego sighed out of a huge relief, one of very few he seemed to get anymore. As he finally closed his eyes and attempted to relax, she added, "But I'm keeping time," breaking his concentration yet again.
"Stop it!" he finally broke out and yelled.
