(No problem!)

Clovis shielded himself as the table came flying at him, but as he stood, the wand behind his back, he saw the muggle weapon pointed at him, and couldn't help but smile about the situation. He counted the number of faces hiding, or shielding themselves in the room, until his gaze fell on Lacetta, lying on the floor. All he had to see was those blond curls, tainted by the blood on her arm, to fully realize the situation.

Whilst the living rope snaked around the man's lackey, rendering him useless, Clovis's gaze fell on the last one standing, and before he sent a knockback jinx his way, and then another spell at the door out, so no one else could leave.

"You've really played your cards badly, mate." Clovis told him, though he doubt he could hear him after the impact of that jinx.

The man was thrown back, but by what? Air? He couldn't stop himself from falling, and there wasn't anything that could have pushed him back. And his buddy, on the floor. What the hell was going on? Was this all an illusion of sorts? Magic tricks? Damn...this was becoming a pain.

"You little shit...stop with those goddamn magic tricks and face me!"

The man's back collided with a wall on the other side of the Inn, a loud noise echoing throughout the room as his weight dented the wall, and nearly broke through it. He had his gun in hand, and he was quickly reloading it, always keeping it pointed at Clovis if he were to try anything. It wasn't supposed to be like this. He was supposed to have won, he was unarmed! Should be unarmed.

"Be an effing man and face me like one!"

The voices could be heard all around, just as the clashes and clangs were, too. On the floor, Lacetta didn't move very much. She could hear the ruckus, though she couldn't really understand what was going on. She hadn't been trying to, either.

All that Lacetta could see was a woman, beyond her reach only by a hair, empty of the lively soul that she once had. She had been kind, and thoughtful, and she deserved anything but this. Anything but being forced to leave.

She was forced to lose her soul and her being, and to be forced out of this world. Mrs. Parcell bled out on the floor next to Lacetta, leaving everything behind.

Onto the bloody floor, a few tears dropped after having left their mark on Lacetta's face. She couldn't help by cry a few tears for her friend, who lost something that no one had the right to take away from her. But they had anyway, and she couldn't bare the thought.

The noises in the background didn't seem to reach Lacetta anymore. Only her cold thoughts.

"Sorry. Not a man." Clovis answered, simply, as he crossed the room to meet the man. As he did so, he used a disarming spell to send the gun flying away mid-reload, so it was out of Clovis's hair. When he reached the man, he cast his spell in a low voice, "Obliviate."

Once he was sure of the absence in the man's gaze, he continued the same process on the other muggles in the Inn, and finally, after finishing with the big brute on the floor, he moved to Lacetta, and his gaze zoned in on the view that had been haunting her the entire time. He stared at the corpse for a moment or two longer, before kneeling down next to,

"Lacetta," he brushed away her blonde curls to examine the wound on her arm, "Let me help you. Please."

For quite a short while, Lacetta had laid on the cold floor, stunned by everything that had happened, and everything that she saw. From everything that she had seen, in her past, had come back to her as well, and it froze her, too.

It was only when a familiar voice called her name that she could feel her daze shatter. Turning her head away from Mrs. Parcell, Lacetta had come to see the face of Clovis, though for some reason it hadn't seemed right.

Lacetta questioned it no further, as everything of that hour came back to her. Everything had seemed rather fast in her mind, and she couldn't place it all in order. She slowly sat up, back against the wall.

Her voice was shaky as she spoke, and not too much above a whisper, "I'm fine...I'll just...go home."

She choked as more tears came to her eyes. Her home was given to her by Mrs. Parcell, and now Mrs. Parcell was dead. She would be forever gone from Lacetta's life. And she'd need a new home now, too, and she couldn't handle everything that hit her in that moment. Pulling her legs in close, Lacetta hid her face in her blood jeans and softly cried.

Dein glanced around the room cautiously, but no one seemed to have gathered themselves enough to be aware of him and Lacetta... As he turned back to her, his hair grew slightly longer, and himself slightly shorter. In a flash, Clovis was gone, and in his place, was Dein. His eyes were wide with alarm, as Lacetta began to cry. Tentatively, he placed his hand on her wrist.

"Lacetta." It was clear he wasn't going anywhere. If she couldn't trust Clovis, perhaps Dein would be able to help. He had no experience in accidents like these, the only person coming to mind that could possibly help was Eirina.

She was so unsure of herself, and so unsure of everything around her. Lacetta could feel herself sinking in her own mind, lost in all of the confusion of where her life had gone, and where it was taking her. It felt to her as though there was so little left to hold on to.

Cold fingers had touched her wrist and jostled Lacetta from her thoughts, looking up quickly, but blankly at whoever had awoken her. On her face had smeared tears and blood, and as she looked on, she didn't believe what she was seeing.

"...Dein?"

Only moments ago, Clovis had been where Dein now sat. Was this a trick or some sort of game, she hadn't known. She questioned her own eyes, for perhaps the fault was theirs.

Even so, Lacetta's eyes seemed to come back to life. There was somebody she knew, sitting right in front of her. Somebody that knew her name, and knew her person. It had been so long since she knew anybody.

"Can you walk?" It only seemed to be a rhetorical question however, as he had soon stowed away his wand and picked her up bridal style. The longer she sat next to the dead woman, the worse off she'd be. Dein wanted to get her away as quick as possible. It was his fault that she had experienced this horrible day. He should have backed off on his work the minute he saw her.

After magically unlocking the front door, he took one last look around the room, to make sure nothing was left behind. The only thing he really forgot was Lacetta's purse, which he got it with a quick accio and was out the door. He didn't speak much, as he made his way down the road, hardly even looked at her. He just couldn't. He was focused on one thing, and that was making sure she was okay.

"Where do you live?" Dein finally asked. He had headed in the direction he saw her walking off to, but now he realized he wasn't sure where she had been heading. She might not have even lived in this town, and Dein was wasting more time.

(I had forgotten to mention, your signature is just lovely!)

Having been swooped up before Lacetta could have answered, Dein had taken her out the door and had already been off and down the street. It seemed to be happening so fast, and she was still lost on all that had happened.

She had felt quite bad, though, for it had been her arm that was hurt, and she wasn't even sure if Dein had been hurt throughout the situation. Unless he hadn't been there until the end, though that would have been quite odd.

"...I can walk..."

The sound of her voice was only just above a whisper, her vocals not seeming to be willing enough to allow her to speak as she normally would.

"Just down here, I rent from Mrs. Parcell the little house down there."

Lacetta had pointed in the direction of the house, and her hand was quivering as she thought about her wording. Rented, was more so accurate, for there was no possible way for her to stay here, or for her to rent from someone who just...

She couldn't think about it, and she couldn't even think of the word. It was too saddening, to have lost a friend like that. And so quickly, too.

(Thank you! Misery made it for me :D And srry if I rushed the wandwork on the last post, I didn't wanna stall the rp ^_^)

Dein stopped in his tracks once he'd processed what she said, and with a curt nod, he put her down gently. The look on her face caused him to look back at the Inn, however, and it didn't take long to put two and two together. Great. More and more memories to make the sting of his mistake feel like poison.

Though he'd seen the house Lacetta had shakily pointed to, he gestured for her to lead the way so he could watch her carefully. He'd wished he knew how to treat that wound, but then again, Lacetta could probably mend it on her own, provided she had the supplies.

"Do you have what you need to treat that?" He nodded towards her bleeding arm as he shoved his hands into his pockets.

(It's quite alright, though I'm afraid I've just done what you had tried not to. I'm terribly sorry, for some reason my laptop just wouldn't let me post!)

Landing softly on her feet as Dein had placed her on the ground, Lacetta had a hard time finding her balance for a moment, feeling rather off center as she stumbled forward a bit. Though it didn't take long before she found herself, fixing her footing so that she could walk nearly normally.

Dein's words had hardly reached Lacetta as she pondered forwards, looking out into the wooded area where her house, Mrs. Parcell's how, really, would be. It was quiet now, and there hadn't been any sirens of any sort going off, which Lacetta had found odd, but once more didn't question it.

Opposed to answering Dein, Lacetta has asked a question of her own while looking at her arm and blood clothing.

"May I ask...why are you here?"

She had nearly forgotten about the Daily Prophet, and all of the harsh words that is had said toward herself and Dein. Certain, she had been, that Dein wouldn't want to speak with her again, not after a thing like that. What if he were to believe it?

Distracting herself from her thoughts, Lacetta tried to look at the back of her left arm, her dominant hand, and saw no exit wound. Only an entrance, meaning that she'd have to find a way to take out the bullet. If only it would have just gone all the way through, though more painful and cause more damage, it would have been easier.

He felt much more comfortable, now that he was in his own skin. He didn't have to slouch or talk in the scratchy voice that Clovis did, but it seemed Lacetta hadn't yet made the connection. Though he supposed she never really did notice him much, even when they were holding a conversation; the truth in that lied in the response she'd given him. He wasn't angry- it was easier this way. The more she knew, the more questions she would have, and knowing more would not only put her in danger, but it wasn't appropriate for the condition she was in.

He didn't lie to her when he told her, "I was looking for someone. Found you instead," he gave a small smirk as he shoved his hands into his pockets; an old habit he'd gotten out of since becoming Clovis. He would have asked another question in exchange for hers, but as his last question had gone unanswered, he decided against it. Helping her to her home and making sure she was okay was enough for him.

Having nodded her head in response to Dein, Lacetta really hadn't heard the words that he had said. She was lost, trapped in her own mind as she often found herself several years ago, and once more it was happening.

She was not one to realize this, and had instead continued on, placing most words and actions inside her head and often thinking them real. In a way Lacetta was living in two worlds at the moment, only she didn't know nor understand that the one didn't exist.

As she made her way down the beaten path, staring at her bloody clothes and feet, she would only ever glance up slightly. She hadn't looked Dein in the eyes since he had first appeared, and only caught glimpses of his hands in his pocket. An odd habit, she had thought, but made no outward comment towards it. Instead, she found herself thankfully upon her rented 'home', where she had left the door slightly cracked.

"This...we're here."

She spoke not as quietly this time around, though quiet all the same as Lacetta bit her lip, as though she were nervous to have been home. Letting herself in, she left the door open for Dein to follow her into her rather plain and temporary home. Possibly now more temporary than she had thought before.

Dein paused at the door, and glanced down at his watch. With a sigh, he gave one last look back towards the Inn, before stepping inside and closing the door quietly behind him. He didn't spend much time looking around- not like there was much to look at in the first place.

"What do you need for that wound?" Dein asked, speaking more loudly than he had previously. It was likely he would be ignored again, so he made himself at home and entered the kitchen, looking to see if she'd stored any medical related things in there. He was rummaging rather loudly though, so that Lacetta would know he was.

He would find it quicker if she did hear him for once though. And she was a nurse, certainly she would have a first aid kit of sorts lying around for situations like these. If she didn't, well, that wouldn't sit well with him. He crossed back into the room where she was, and watched her expectantly, waiting to see if she would respond this time or not. His patience was wearing out however, with her lack of awareness. Even without their current situation, she acted like this before, back at Hogwarts. Did she ever listen?

As Dein had entered the kitchen, Lacetta had as well. She sat down at the small table, and stared at the old wooden table, tracing parts of it where the wood had chipped and where pieces had been sticking up. It would have been easy to get a splinter on this table, though she had never noticed it before until, as she touched the sharp chips of wood.

Dein had posed a question, and Lacetta hadn't looked up until he began to rummage through all of the cabinets. What would she need?

She looked back down at her arm. Never before had she dealt with anything of this sort, a bullet wound was not a common occurrence in the wizarding world. And the bullet had been in her arm. What was there to do?

"Disinfectant and healing ointment...that would be in the bathroom upstairs, I do believe. Though..."

She couldn't think of anyway to get the bullet out of her arm, other than some odd form of tweezers, and she was certain that would hurt. Would it cause her any harm to leave it there? She thought not, perhaps she could let it be as it was, and it would turn out fine...

Before, Lacetta wouldn't have let something simply go, but rather be sure to take the time to figure out the best way how. It had been herself, of course, but even then, she wouldn't have been nearly so willing to give up on the matter in only seconds.

"...I'll go and get it."

Slowly standing, Lacetta pushed out the kitchen chair and began to walk toward the stairs, still in a bit of a daze as she has been.

With a frustrated sigh, he followed right after Lacetta up the stairs. As out there as she was acting, he wasn't going to let her out of his sight while he was here. Each step on the stairs creaked under his weight, and his fingertips slid across the railing as they made their way up to where Lacetta had indicated.

He could still imagine the ringing in his ears from those weapons the muggles had been using. He hadn't the time to inspect it, but the sound it made was ear-piercing. His gaze fixated on Lacetta's arm, as he imagined what kind of pain that shot would ensue. Of course, she seemed so out of it, not even she would have known what it felt like. Muggles and their stupid contraptions.

"How are you feeling?" He finally asked as they reached the top of the stairs.

Up the stairs, Lacetta had made it to the top, looking first to her right, where her simple bed rested in the corner with the night stand next to it, and then to the left, where the door to the bathroom was only a few feet away.

She made her way into the bathroom, turning to face the wall with the cabinet on it. Opening it up, she pulled out a few bottles, turning them in her hands, reading the labels that she had on them with her handwritting.

Dein's voice had reached hers in the bathroom, and she looked up from the bottle that was now in her hands, knowing that he had asked her how she was feeling. Though her mind was a little to clouded to know as she looked down at her arm, moving it out slightly. Now that she was focused on it, looking at it, she could feel the electric pain as she moved it.

"It'll feel better soon…"

Now, making her way out of the bathroom, Lacetta sat down on the edge of her bed, ointments in hand and staring at them, thinking of what to do.

He watched, as she sat down on the bed, but didn't immediately start treating her arm. His gaze hardened as he watched the delay in her actions. She couldn't have been playing off the wound like it was nothing, could she? Dein couldn't be sure, so he needed to see it for himself. He sat down beside her, and inspected the wound. When he felt no hole on the other side of her arm, his gaze turned to her eyes, "Is there something inside? Something had to have caused the hole; they were muggles." He may not have had prior knowledge to whatever it had been the muggles used, but he did know that it hadn't been empty air that hurt her. If it was a muggle weapon, then there was definitely something in her arm. Poison, perhaps?

The thought made his heart race, as he leaned forward to catch her attention. She had to listen to him. She may have understood the situation far more than he, but even so, if her life was in danger, he needed to know about it. His jaw tightened at the thought of the officials finding her as a cold, dead corpse. What would he do then? He couldn't let anything happen to her; not Lacetta.

The bed had sunk in as another body had appeared next to hers. Lacetta could feel the heat of Dein's body, but she didn't lift her face for a few seconds. It was when he had begun to inspect her wounds that she looked up, seeing his dark hair and pale features so close to her body, and his warm skin on her arm.

She stared, blankly for a few moments as thoughts swirled in her head. He shouldn't have been here, he had only just graduated from Hogwarts, and she hadn't wanted for him to gain a reputation, not after what the Daily Prophet had posted...it still felt so fresh to her. Lacetta barely answered Dein's question.

"Yes...but...I don't believe you should be here. The Daily Prophet has been rather harsh, and I don't-"

Lacetta had to take a breath, for her speech had been picking up faster and faster. As Lacetta was going to finish speaking, she looked away from Dein, now staring out the window.

"I don't think it would be best, for you, quite the opposite, really."

Her worry was for Dein, and for his reputation. He'd still need to find a job, and a place to live, and so many other things that she thought if he were to be seen even near her, she'd have ruined, all due to that silly article. It was as though Lacetta was starting to believe what the Prophet had written.

Now, as she face the window, Lacetta looked down at her hands, nervously fiddling with her fingers and thumbs.

"Fuck the Prophet," Was his, rather crass, response. He hadn't cared about the filth in the paper before, even after speaking with Eirina, and he sure as hell hadn't changed his mind now. He'd never cared about what people thought in the first place. He wouldn't care unless it ruined his work, and the only possible way that could happen was with Aries. Either way, even if he left now, he would still be paying the consequences anyway. Dein wasn't leaving.

His gaze had not wavered from hers, not once, and he was certain about his position. He was going to make sure she was okay. His hand remained loose around her arm, as he continued, "Now tell me, Lacetta," his words grew heavy, as he practically demanded an answer, "is there, or is there not, something in your arm?"

His heart was pounding in his chest in the heat of the moment, as though her answer would deliver life or death. He realized his grip on her arm was becoming more firm in the anticipation, so he loosened it, letting his hand slide down to her forearm. He felt like the contact was all that was keeping her focus on him; if he let go, her mind would stray again, away from him.

Turning back to look at Dein, Lacetta's eyes were wide open. He had been quick, and harsh, and soon after Lacetta's eyes had become soft. Had he really not cared? It seemed so strange for him to have acted this way, for what of the news could have only hurt him. She saw no light in the article, and yet he hadn't cared about inked words on paper.

She nodded her head as Dein had become more and more serious, his grip tightening on her arm. She wasn't sure why it had tightened, other than that he was still in shock from being at the Inn, from wherever he was, during that situation.

If it weren't for the voice belonging to Dein, Lacetta would have been frightened. His voice was so firm, and held a tone of authority, Lacetta felt that she had to reply and listen.

"Yes, a bullet. It's like metal, or silver, I'm quite so sure. Though, I don't know how to get it out. I'm sure it's fine to leave."

She could feel his arm move down hers, now gentle, and she watched as it fell, her gaze straying away from Dein's eyes, though her focus had always been on him. Even then, when she should have felt pain in her arm, and surely she did, her brain told her that it wasn't there.

As she described the object that had entered her flesh, he focused on the wound itself, but once she suggested to leave it, he looked to her sharply, "Leave it? Lacetta, if it isn't natural, it shouldn't be there." He thought of his ash-tainted scar, and how it wasn't natural. But there hadn't been a choice for him; Lacetta did have one. He knew it would cause her pain, but could it be worse than leaving it there, ingrained inside her arm?

"I can help you get it out. Do you have a tool?" She had taken care of him more than once, and with much effort when he'd come out of the tournament. It would have been difficult for her to remove the bullet, as she'd called it, if she did it herself. But Dein, though without experience in medical affairs, would be in a much more stable position to help in the situation.

Even if she refused to get it out, he would persist. He didn't like the idea of something that was potentially a hazard. Perhaps even take extreme measures if she didn't allow him to remove the bullet. She wouldn't have left something inside him like that, had the roles been reversed. As a nurse, most importantly, she would take care of it as soon as possible.

Was it really all that bad? Lacetta hadn't known much when it came to a subject such as this, this was a muggle sort of medical situation. She wasn't trained for anything of this sort, for muggle weapons and wizarding magic were quite the two very different situations.

If Lacetta had any tools, she wouldn't have known where to find them. Nor did she really know what sort of tool he was looking for. Perhaps he thought that he could get the bullet out of her arm? Oh, surely not, Lacetta couldn't let that be.

"I'm rather unsure, but it's fine as it is, I'm positive! There's no need for you to help, I'd very much like to believe that it'll be okay."

And it had been what she had liked to believe, even though it was hard to believe it. It would most certainly cause discomfort, at the very least, if it had stayed in her arm after healing over.

Though not often did Lacetta have to deal with pain, as she was the nurse, not the patient, and she was too scared to have it taken out. If she had known where any sort of tools were, Lacetta wasn't so sure that she would have told Dein.

She was realizing that she was a bit scared, as she was coming to her sense more so now than before due to the fear, and the pain of her arm had slowly been creeping up on her. Seeing her clothes now, she could see the blood that seemed to escape her mind before, and her hands began to quiver every so slightly. Slowly, but surely, she had been returning to herself.

He was quiet for a time, looking her over as he thought over what she said. He would have been angry, but something prevented that. He looked down at her hands for a moment, and possibly didn't even notice their quiver, but his hands reached out to hers. He gathered the words in his head for a moment, as he ran his thumb across her palm, before looking into her eyes again. He was confident about the truth in the words, as he told her, "The pain is temporary. I'll take care of you." He gave a small nod to further assure her- maybe even himself, and rose to his feet.

"Could there be something in the kitchen that would help? I can get some ice as well, if you'd like." His tone grew rather tender by the end of his statement, though he hadn't intended to sound that way. He was honest when he spoke about the pain; he had experienced himself after all. He could relate in the small way that he did, though at the time, he himself hadn't been afraid, even when his lungs began to refuse the air around him. Yet, he had a distraction at the time, that being the realization about Eirina sharing his blood.

A distraction...

Although she could feel his eyes, looking at hers, Lacetta couldn't help but close her eyes as tightly as she could. She did her best to convince herself that the blood wasn't there, that it wasn't blood but dye, that it wasn't the blood of a friend but spilled juice. She had done what she could, though it hardly stopped her quivering.

As Dein spoke to her only the kindest words that she had heard in such a long time, she nodded her head. When he next asked a question, Lacetta had opened her eyes, though looked at the ceiling with a deep breath before looking back at Dein.

"It's...it's quite alright. There may be something-in the kitchen. I'm not quite sure..."

She had broken off and tried to tell herself of other things. In the kitchen, was there anything to use? The first thing that she thought of was cooking tongs, which wouldn't do. Surely, there were tweezers in the bathroom, though she didn't think they'd be big enough. Unless they used magic, which she only just thought of now.

"Tweezers?"

Still shaking, Lacetta stumbled over her words as she spoke, the pain starting to become more and more noticeable and she couldn't help but close her eyes again.

She could catch flashes of what had occurred at the inn, the loud noises and the pain of the bullet which pushed her to the ground, Mrs. Parcell's pale face on the floor next to hers and the blood all around them. All of it was horrifying.
