Ava is right. We can't hide away forever. We have to leave behind the victim mentality and take action. After all, there is a very simple solution: It must be possible somehow to remove the burn mark from Till's cheek. This scar is the only thing that makes him recognizable as outlawed. He could go outside again without the fear of running into someone from this ominous syndicate.
So we asked around a bit. Not only ChatGPT, but also all over the internet and in our local bubble. Removing burn scars seems to be pretty difficult in general. Actually, all you can do is make them lighter and more inconspicuous - which is hardly enough in our case. We are currently discussing the following three methods:
1. The most promising conventional treatment seems to be laser therapy. This requires four to five sessions at six-week intervals. And it´s not cheap either. There are several beauty clinics in the city that offer something like this. Afterwards, the scar should not be completely gone, but it should be much more inconspicuous.
2 Leo asked old Ursel and she said that she knew of various lotions and tinctures that could be used to get rid of such a scar. It just depends on whether there are any evil spirits involved.
3. We found a specialist who claims that he can remove such a scar completely with a simple surgery. He doesn't even want lots of cash for it. However, he is a bit shady - doesn't even have his own website and his address is in some backyard in an industrial area.
What do you think? How should we decide?
