Default so Collie, maybe?


So COLLIE, maybe?
[ aka Katherine thinks she is being clever with a dog pun in the Call Me, Maybe? lyrics ]


William Williamson and Jade Flamsteed share very little in common: they both are Scorpios, they attended Hogwarts together, they have a soft spot for a certain Herbology professor, they both fail in romance, and they adore their canine companions. That very Herbology professor (we're looking at you, June Flamsteed) sprung the surprise of a chaperoned "blind date" on the due in her joint apartment with Jade at Christmas time 2102...and let's just say it was an awkward encounter with a delicious homecooked meal.

They say opposites attract, and this pair are as opposite as they come, but isn't it also true that we look for reflections of ourselves in others as well?

SCENE ONE; at the dog park
SPOILER!!: summer 2103


In the summer of 2103, William and Jade happened upon each other once again in Diagon Alley where one leash entanglement later they found themselves with hot drinks to-go and on their way to a local dog park in London to continue their conversation while allowing their dogs to run off an excess of energy.


SCENE TWO; the Great Hall at Hogwarts
SPOILER!!: May 2104
The Third Wizarding War underway, Jade rushed to Hogwarts on irrational impulse on behalf of her cousin, sister, 'niece and nephews', and a man she was still uncertain of what to make of. Coming off the battle ground, William finds just the right way to lay on the charm after eight months of zero contact thanks to the Neo-Alliance's influence at Hogwarts...and the entire wizarding world.

Chai tea spice cappuccino in hand with Coconut's leash hanging lazily around her wrist like a bracelet and three puppuccinos balanced in her other hand which also was holding on to Apricot's leach, Jade lead the way out from the Alley and through the crowded streets of London towards a less populated area where the dog park was located. Though, as always, Apricot was not one to heel when so riled up and Jade was not performing her balancing act with as much grace as she would have like. "William, could you hold these until we get there?" she asked while offering the little take away tray the puppuccinos were nestled in. Yes, she had insisted she could handle carrying them all while they were ordering in the coffee shop...but canine companions did not always comply. Apricot had realized now where they were going and for such a tiny little thing...he could be rather persuasive with how quickly their human walked.

And presently he was yipping and seeming to gleefully chase his tail while still in stride due to his excitement. Or perhaps trying to show off to April.

"I have a few consolations in the Alley for some interior renovations but not for a few hours. This outing, and yourself, fit into my schedule quite seamlessly." And she was one to keep to a rather tight schedule whenever possible. Something that certain people liked to point out to her as her need to have control and she would rather like for these people to keep their behavioral analysis to themselves. "What about yourself? In the Alley running errands for official Hogwarts business?"

She was curious how a Creatures professor got away for the summer holiday. He did not have the same luxury her cousin had in that telescopes were perfectly capable of minding themselves in storage when school was not in session. William had an entire menagerie to tend to...and surely he was not like her sister in packing up the majority and bringing it home with him.

William was, frankly, very amazed that Jade had managed to balance so many things in her hands up to this point. He would have offered to take the puppucinos sooner (there was still space for his small black coffee to ride in the drink carrier too) but Jade seemed like the sort of strong, independent woman who couldn't be bossed around by a man. So he waited for her to ask for help. See, he knew how these things worked.

"Sure!" he swooped in to grab the tray, nestling his coffee in the carrier as well and keeping hold of April's leash with his other hand. He was good at carrying things with his big man hands. He chuckled at Apricot's antics; he certainly had April enthralled, who was yipping along every time there was a pause in Apricot's serenade. The two were hardly competing with the street noise, though, as they crossed to the park.

William shook his head as they entered a much quieter area and April began straining to get off-leash and into the doggy section. "No, not yet, sweetie," he pulled her back, the tips of his ears turning pink again because what if Jade thought he was addressing HER? He would NEVER use such a familiar term on someone he hardly knew unless, of course, she was into it? Errr. What was her question again?

"I got kicked out of Hogwarts for the summer." Yes, that was what they were talking about. "I'm renting a room over the Leaky for a few weeks before I beg Trent to let me back in. I have so much to do now that our old groundskeeper retired, but he said he needed the grounds 'without distraction or disturbance' so I guess my work will have to wait." He shrugged as though it didn't bother him, but it KIND OF did. Other people just weren't as familiar with his animals as he was, y'know? He hated leaving them in someone else's care.

Not to mention all the things he wanted to clean up on the grounds before the kids got back. He had more than enough reasons to stay at the school year-round.

It was true and to her detriment at times. Something that seemed to only age like fine line, along with the rest of her. She had tried waitressing once or twice when she was a teenager and worked during the summer months. She had lasted two weeks. She had more than enough dexterity to manage rolls of wallpaper with two binders of swatches and a menagerie of additional accessories, sometimes clutched between her teeth or balanced on her head, but when it came to food and drink she was suddenly incapable of finding her way out of a wet paper bag. Not that she did not try to reverse this fortune. "Thank you."


...sweetie?

Her brow arched at him while the corner of her lip curled sweetly. "You seem to have the strong subconscious desire to nickname me." April, now sweetie. Even if she was aware he was not referencing her, the timing was just too enticing to let slide.

Admiring his man hands the interaction between April and Apricot as then continued their walk, turning left down the street and the dog park now in sight (and within ear's reach), Jade listened and pursed her lips at the response. Kicked out? That sounded rather turbulent for a Care of Magical Creatures professor to handle and something told her, perhaps some of the stories she had heard from June, that this headmaster was not going to go out of his way to tend to the wellbeing of the other creatures. "Oh, well, congratulations on your promotion." Decidedly will focus on that rather than explicit work talk. "If the words from my niece are any indication..." As well as her own impression. "... then students and creatures are in for a proper treat with your expertise taking over the entirety of the grounds."

Apricot could hardly contain himself now and was whimpering as though his life depended on it. "Almost, Apricot," she attempted to shush the pup. And then Coconut chimed in as well, whimpering and barking and jumping in a zigzag fashion rather than walking. "Through the gate first. You both know the routine."

It was no problem, he was happy to help out, and indicated so with a small salute of the cups. April had never had a puppicino and he knew she was going to go WILD for it. He was excited to see it! This was turning out to be a great afternoon, and so far William hadn't even messed up roya---

Er, yes, yes he had. At her comment, the reddish-pink flush that had been contained to the tips of his ears began to spread, slowly taking over his forehead, then his cheeks, his chin, and even his neck, until his entire head was blushing like a ripe cherry tomato. "That-- that wasn't-- APRIL-- it--I-I-I---" He didn't even have a RESPONSE, because what could he say? You're wrong? Would that even be TRUE? William tripped over his words and then half-tripped over his own feet. April's leash nearly slipped through his fumbling fingers again, but thankfully he managed to catch it (and not drop the cups) just in time.

Deep breaths. He just needed to stop fumbling around her. She was, honestly, just better-looking companionship than he was used to. That was all! He was out of practice speaking to women! Even most of his colleagues were guys. "I-I---" Nope, not out of the stuttering woods yet, Williamson. He shut his mouth and went with an embarrassed nod, looking down at his pup who was tugging so fervently at her leash that she was halfway off the ground.

"It's not really a promotion," he ended up saying after a too-long pause that only resulted in his face cooling down somewhat. "But. Thank you, Jade." He was sure to use her name this time. She was too nice, seriously. He couldn't handle it. He let a small sigh escape his mouth, mentally kicking himself for that whole... thing, and looked down at Jade's dogs. Er. Were they at the park then? Funny how one could lose track of time and space like that.

The circle of dog owners with which Jade tended to spend her time with, not her most favorite of people and every luncheon seemed to be a competition regarding just how prestigious their child was or who had baked the best fruit tart that week or whose husband had spoiled them the most, came standard with puppicinos. Typically the former Ravenclaw would keep to herself and focus on watching Coconut and Apricot lap up the cream while trying to look invisible to the chatter. Her child was grown and working at the Ministry doing his own thing, she couldn't bake anything to save her life, and she was a divorcee. Therefore there was nothing to add to the conversation other than her own blossoming interior design career which was almost always glazed over by the next lavish piece of jewelry so-and-so's husband purchased on a whim siiiiiiiimply because it matched her eyes.

...she needed to find a new circle of girl friends, clearly.

In any case, this was a very round about way of illustrating that she was under the assumption that most dog owners were very aware of the puppicino and she would be delighted to know that she was introducing William, and April, to the world of puppy pampering.

Her warm brown eyes shifting back to William, she couldn't help the laugh that was escaping her lips - though there was an attempt to muffle it by covering her mouth. Seeing as the cat had a hold of William's tongue and a red hue consumed the entirety of his head, she figured that she should let him off the hook a bit...though it was rather delightful to see this sort of reaction from a man. It had been...a long while. Somewhere she could hear June's pleased thumb's up. "William, relax. I was only teasing you."

And she would refrain from informing him that it was a good color on him.

It would be terribly inappropriate to now say 'you're welcome, darling'...wouldn't it?

"It's more responsibility...which sounds like a promotion to me," she considered with a gentle tap tap tap of her index finger her cheek. Now inside the park and through the gate, which Apricot shoved open while using his tiny little head like a battering ram, Jade lifted her fingers to her lips to perform a sharp double whistle that had both dogs sitting. Well, Coconut was sitting but Apricot was sitting and then standing and then sitting and then standing again in anticipation. "Not too terribly crowded today," she noted while glancing over her shoulder at the rest of the park. Mostly elderly folks with their fur babies from what she could see. "We can take our drinks and the puppicinos over there," she indicated with an elegant point of the finger towards a little gazebo.

And then she returned her attention to her own pups and unhooked their leashes...which meant Apricot was off jumping and twirling like a jumping bean.

Professor Pink | Mrs. Bruce Wayne | I'm on a Goat | Glitterpuff | Evil Twin | #DancingQueen | BHB

William was just so embarrassed at himself. He was FAR TOO OLD to be tripping over his tongue around womenfolk. It was nonsense! How could he have traveled the world, hatched baby dragons, observed and reported on yeti, and yet be unable to string together a sentence just because someone with great legs and shiny hair fluttered her eyelashes in his direction?!

He was cursed. He was sure of it.

"You can tease me," he mumbled in resignation. "It's fine, I'm just...." CURSED, he said! "A dolt. I accept it." He was practically reciting this as though he regularly attended meetings for Awkward Adults (AA for short, maybe?). Actually, if such a club existed, he was sure his BFF January would have signed him up for it ten or more years ago.

Fine, fine, he'd also accept that it was a promotion, though again, William maintained that it was a lateral move and he didn't care to be promoted at this point in his career anyway. He'd been passed over for the Slytherin Head of House role, and that was fine too. He was too grumpy to be required to do MORE work at that school, and, as he frequently reminded himself, he preferred his alone time in nature to anything else.

But back to the present, with the pups. His eyebrows went up slightly at that impressive whistle, his gaze lingering on Jade's lips for a second too long, before he followed her look toward the gazebo. "Alright." William squatted down then to give his own wiggling pup (her forked tail too large for her bum, even with its little disillusionment charm on it) a mini-lecture.

"I'm going to let you off now, but you'd BETTER NOT pick any fights with anyone bigger than you. Stick with Apricot and Coconut, okay? And share. No biting. You'll come when you're called or you're sleeping alone in your doggie bed tonight." He nodded seriously to April (as though he would carry through with that threat) and pat-patted her lil head, unhooking her leash at last.

She took off like a rocket, of course, leaving the other two dogs behind in the dust like she didn't even know them.

Well. So much for listening to her dad's lecture.

For the record, Jade did not flutter eyelashes at anyone. At least not anymore. Those sorts of techniques were lost to her late teen years and were entirely not age appropriate now. Not unless she was come over with some schoolgirl whimsy, that is.

"A dolt," she repeated with a dry deadpanned tone as her brow arched once more in his direction. Tucked away was the permission to poke at him, thank you for that Mr. Williamson, Jade tapped the corner of her lip lightly as she considered this bout of self-deprecation. "I would hardly call you a dolt, William. Perhaps a little ... rough around the edges ..." She may be looking a bit at the roughness around that strong jawline of his thanks to the scruff and makings of a beard. "...now and then, but I'd hardly open up a dictionary and see your picture beside the definition of dolt."

Her cousin. Now he was a dolt. A genius of the academic pursuits but a social dolt.

William she found rather charming, truth be told. Which surprised her a fair bit and not in an unpleasant way.

"However...I do look forward to making you turn that particular shade of red again."

Her attention elsewhere, she missed that lingering gaze of his (or else he would have made her turn red in divine retribution to her teasing) and instead sighed as Apricot whimpered and yelped while presenting the absolutely more forlorn expression imaginable. All the way down to somehow making his ears droop. Coconut also seemed in on the whole charade and had sunk his neck in between his shoulders while accompanied by whine of his own. "Oh...off with you both then," she laughed as she shooed them both away with an elegant twist of the wrists and fanning of her fingers as though she were performing a bit of nonverbal magic. She was not, for the record. She would never bewitch her fur babies.

Fur babies who were now running so fast to catch up with April that Apricot tripped over his own feet, performed a sort of somersault, and once back on his feet kept running. Though he had veered off a bit to the right and had had to perform a loop to find himself back in stride with Coconut.

"Well...hopefully the puppicinos keep with the heat...though I doubt any of them will mind lapping up whipped cream soup," she sighed, rubbing her hand along the back of her slender neck and then up along it until her fingers could tuck a bit of hair behind her ear. "Shall we?" She looked back over to her dishy companion and then towards the gazebo. There may have been a slight flutter of the eyelashes that she will absolutely deny occurred if questioned.

Default *.* I've probably accidentally spelled puppicinos wrong 8 times in this thread
Professor Pink | Mrs. Bruce Wayne | I'm on a Goat | Glitterpuff | Evil Twin | #DancingQueen | BHB

Rough around the edges was........ actually, a very accurate description of him, one William agreed with and maybe even liked. He liked his rough edges, rubbing at one of them (his jaw) absentmindedly while Jade looked at him. Willy nodded to her seriously, though he couldn't help the twitching that started at the edge of one lip. It was just...well, to compare someone to a picture in a dictionary... it was a humorous, immature reference, to be sure. One he'd probably used countless times on Jade's said cousin, heh, when they were in school together.

He tried not to blush again and instead dipped his head, laughing this time. "Has anyone told you that you're very direct, Jade Flamsteed?" Well, she WAS!

He followed her over toward the gazebo, no eyelash flutter detected, but only because his eyes were checking on the puppicinos as he maybe murmured a bit of wandless magic himself. Not that he was any GOOD at it, but he was fairly confident that with his wand in his left wrist holster and the cups in his left hand... he could surely at least cast a small freezing charm on the puppicinos there.

He might've accidentally cast it on ALL the drinks, but they'd be noticing that in a moment.

"So, you come here often?" William set the drinks down first and then settled himself into the picnic table, not without difficulty. His legs were too long for this damned thing.

Her cousin absolutely would be the sort to have his picture immortalized in a dictionary and would likely relish in the fact as well. It was fitting and the sort of reprimand she too used on him when they were younger. Perhaps even now. The worst was whenever he would call her something completely outlandish and typically from a language from one of those muggle television shows he was forever obsessed with. Her harshly demanding what he just called her, him spelling out dictionary back to her to prompt her to look it up, her then spending what felt like hours sometimes referencing various dictionaries and unable to find the word...only then for him to come back and boast about how he had 'got her again'.

Gryffindors. Thankfully June was not that kind of incessant sort.

"On more than one occasion, William," she laughed while tossing a bit of her long hair over her shoulder. "I see little sense in being anything else." Directness was a form of respect and there was little sense in wasting either party's time on most subjects. Though she had learned the hard way to show more tact in her directness around clients while first starting out.

It was hard to decide which was more embarrassing, the fact that she had eyelash fluttered at all or the fact that it had gone unnoticed, but her own attention had drifted back to their dogs and making sure they were at least partially behaving themselves. They seemed to be enjoying romping around and rolling in the grass at the moment, so she could then divide her attention back to William and her own coffee. And speaking of direct, do you come here often? was certainly among that fray. Her lips curling into a smile as she plucked her coffee from the holder by draping her fingers over the lid and pulling up, she elegantly folded her long legs one behind the other as she sat across from him. "Fairly often. I'd be here every day if they set the schedule," Jade laughed while nodding her head over to her dogs, Coconut now chasing his own tail and Apricot now sniffing April's rear. "The weekends. Sundays. Typically around this hour, after lunch, and until 4 on most days." She lifted her coffee to her lips and took a sip.....and stilled.

It would be terribly improper and disgusting to spit it out, though the gentle gag reflex nearly had her spitting it all in a shower right into his face (though there was a bit of dribble out of the corner of her mouth, so she took a moment to pause and swallowed it with some reluctance before holding it up and examining it. The walk surely had not been that long to warrant the beverage ice cold already. Not only that...but the consistency was... "...the barista must have misheard the wrong -ccino," she lamented with more than mild irritation.

Frappuccinos were...not among her beverages of choice. Ever.

He'd missed the fluttering eyelashes but he did not miss the hair show. William may have even obviously ogled her... her hair curtain she was tossing over her shoulder in the way he often tossed bags of fwooper feed when he had to get to work at Hogwarts. Really. Hard not to stare.

Right, uhhhhh, he'd just slowly nod to pretend like he'd heard what she said.

He shook himself so he'd focus on her schedule. "So I could run into you again sometime?" Just as a hypothetical? He could? He lost courage halfway through that sentence and quickly added, "I mean, because April needs more training, I think, and your dogs are obviously very obedient...." WWW needed to stop before he embarrassed himself again, particularly since he'd shifted his attention from watching her hair to watching her mouth sip coffee. She, uh, had a bit of a dribble there....

Putting his own coffee (or, rather, the beverage formerly known as coffee) to his mouth, he took a sip... and felt the thud of the frozen solid drink hit his upper lip with some force.

"..." William SWORE under his breath and set the cup down, rougher than he had intended. It dawned on him what had happened in his literal attempt to look cool. "That son of a barista.... freakin' frappuccinos..."

It was all his fault. But wouldn't admitting it hurt worse than his now injured lip? He rubbed at the rough stubble in his mustache line and into his lip. Ow. Ow. Ow. Was it swelling? It felt swollen. He needed a Healer. He'd been spoiled by one of his best friends being one forever and ever, until she'd married one of his other best friends. Could Jade take a look at his big pouty lip? He probably looked like a child as these thoughts ran through his mind.

Of the two gestures he could notice, her hair was perhaps the more flattering option. Particularly when one considered it had not been a performance like the fluttering of her eyelashes had been. Plus, she did have a carefully structured hair care routine from all natural and eco friendly products. Why she still had not a single grey hair on her head yet save for that one the other morning that she had plucked out...and another the week before that had likewise met the same fate.

His staring, however, was assumed to be in response to her directness with her schedule. She was hardly being subtle about it. Something William both seemed to pick up on while at the same time come off as utterly oblivious to. A man who was rough around the edges, truly. "Yes, you could," she nodded with a coy smile and tucked a bit of hair behind her ear. "You'll need more than just a couple of hours once a week for for any real obedience training, William," she teased. Being the man that he was, she was certain he already knew this. But if their dogs were to serve as a metaphorical owl to deliver a point, then two could play that game. "For April," she added as an afterthought.

Pulling the lid off her coffee, Jade took a peek inside and and frowned at the slushie that was meant to be a warm chai tea spice cappuccino. It was not the most unpleasant of flavors, but she strongly disliked this texture and there was just something about cold chai that was incredibly off putting.

Bit of dribble still there, Jade nearly knocked her drink over (which would not be the worst of things as it would mean she no longer felt obligated to drink this swill) when William had his own brand of visceral reaction to his drink...which had turned to ice? Of course this made absolutely no sense to her brain and even the worst kind of customer service in muggle London did not serve literal blocks of ice for iced coffee, but William's lip was looking as though it had just had, well, had a solid block of ice smash against it. So she could pick apart the curiosity that was their drinks in a moment, her paternal mode was triggered in the presence of an injury and her hand was moving swiftly to her bag to retrieve a handkerchief. "You're not bleeding are you?" she questioned as she rose from her side of the bench and over to his. Her warm chestnut eyes glanced at his cup and sighed at the irony before she gave it a firm whack against the table to break off a bit of the frozen coffee and wrapped it in her handkerchief for a cold compress. Looking back up at him, she was moving on pure impulse to hold his chin while leaning forward a bit to apply the makeshift compress to his lip. Though stops herself seeing as William was a grown man and not a small child.

...even if he may resembled one just a little in the moment.

"...may I?"

Well well, it had worked. William tried not to look too self-satisfied, even as she possibly (definitely) saw right through his 'obedience training' ploy. "Oh, I guess it'll have to be a regular thing, then," he mused, rubbing at that distinguished chin of his. "As regular as I can manage. I mean, er, your dogs are, uh, excellent example models for her, good friends to visit on the weekend...."

Where was he going with this? Was he getting too into the excuse once again? Yes.

"I dunno," he pouted, definitely looking like a full-grown man and also a very large baby at the same time. Fully into his pout, he just jutted out his lip and wallowed in his self-pity while Jade fussed around like an old sport. He tilted his head up at her so she could see his big baby lip, and nodded to her question.

Yes, of course, please fix it.

...and while she was here, could he wipe away the dribble by her lip? William couldn't stop staring at it now, now that she was in his bubble. Without asking, and half in a daze (it was the booboo's fault), he reached a thumb up and gently wiped it away from the corner of her mouth.

She absolutely did. Or, rather, she assumed that she did...but William was so bumbling at times that she could not be absolutely certain (especially when one considered they were still very much in the getting to know one another phase of whatever this was). Perhaps a bit of a projection of what she hoped was the source of his inquiries and she herself nurturing it. "Well I hope you can manage often," she mused while tucking a bit more of her hair behind her ear. The subtle breeze was making it a bit untamed. Maybe she had a clip or tie in her bag she could utilize in a moment. "Being self employed, I have the luxury of setting my own schedule to accommodate my needs."

So he could take from that what he wanted.

And, for future reference, while she fully acknowledge that she was not young and sprightly and that the word was one of endearment, she could do without any sort of reference to old in future thoughts. Thank you.

That pout, let them call a spade a spade here, likewise retracted her earlier thoughts about him being a grown man and just the most subtle of laughs escaped Jade's lips. Surely if he were bleeding he would be able to taste it by now, but in the name of thoroughness she was gingerly pulling his lower lip away to inspect his lower teeth when he was doing a bit of exploration of his own. With his thumb. Brushing along her lip.

Who was the direct one? Hmm?

Dark eyes shifting from her examination to his eyes, a little wider than they had been a few seconds ago, she tilted her head a bit in amusement and with an accompanied slight shake of the head. "You need to let me finish this before thinking about kissing me, William."

And had she pieced together that he had been the one to cast a Freezing Charm on the beverages, she may have found this whole situation an elaborate ploy. May being the key word. William seemed more the sort to stumble into situations and messes more than create them knowingly. A comedy of errors personified.

Oh, she could set her own schedule, could she? William tried not to get too hopeful with the perky little feeling he felt rising somewhere in his midsection. Tried not to look too closely at her hair, either, catching the wind like that. Like... so perfectly. Why get hopeful, Willy Wally, if you'll just get disappointed later?

No, no no. He WAS reading things right. He was. He cleared his throat a little as though tsk-ing at himself. "Well then, guess maybe the stars will align to allow us some time together.... with the dogs, of course."

WAS THAT TOO FORWARD? Was he blushing now? He was, wasn't he?!

But back to the booboo thing because somehow we're on two timelines HAHAHahahah...

"Merlin's beard, Jade," William replied softly, his face completely on fire again. "You really know how to make a grown man cry."

But he wasn't crying, actually, he was grinning pretty widely despite his red face of embarrassment. Come to think of it, did his puffy lip even hurt anymore? Did it? He couldn't tell. Maybe Jade needed to take a closer look at it. Maybe she needed to inspect it further for him.

It was improper and embarrassing, especially since she did not have her handkerchief to cover her nose and mouth, and her eyes widened in distraught surprise as she snortedas a response to his stars comment. So William was one those varieties then? Not that she found herself particularly surprised, he did seem to be the jaded romantic sort where such sentiments had to be squeezed out, like water wrung from a nearly dried out sponge.

"It helps if one knows how to chart the stars, makes them aligning work more in your favor," she noted casually and taking a bit too much pleasure in once again making a grown man blush. Astronomy had never been a particular strength of hers, but hearing her cousin drone on and on about such things and it was virtually impossible for an inquisitive mind like her own not to learn a thing or two in that process. Which was her being entirely too practical about what had been a sweet flirtatious comment from the man.

And speaking of booboo's...another glance at his rock of frozen coffee and her slushie mess had her brow arching in all kinds of scrutiny as the pieces fell into place. "I think you've done a fine job nearly managing that on your own." There was a bit of judgment to her tone, though a light a humorous one, and her eyes flicked upwards from her inspection of his lips his mouth to meet his flushed face...which also somehow seemed to accentuate his eyes by contrast. "Glacius aside, you'll be just fine. And you even have the ice prepared to help with that swelling." Her finger gently traced over the affected area, testing to see if he flinched at all from any sort of discomfort before teasing him just a little bit more. "...April can kiss it and make it all better."

Speaking of their pups...they WERE still behaving themselves, yes? She could hear barking in the distance but nothing that sounded to distressed.

William eyed her for a moment as he found a spot to slowly lower his levitation spell, promising to the woman that he'd, "Be right back." The thing was that SOMEONE had caught his eye and he needed, he HAD to go talk to her.

So he once again draaaaaaaagged himself way, this time heading for a dark-haired beauty talking to another healer. "You can fetch me a latte with foam on it, NOT frozen, please." Heh, was that too much to ask? He nearly collapsed just with relief at seeing Jade, though, and the pup under his arm let out a yap of glee for the familiar face too. HI, JADE, HI, was what April said.
She could feel herself siphoning off the calm of the other healers in the Great Hall, otherwise there was very little chance that she would be maintaining the stature that she was presently. There was always a task to focus on, something to distract her from from the twists and upheavals in her heart every time someone new was added to the row of deceased and unconscious or tended to by for their injuries, and right now Jade was back to ensuring there were enough clean cloths and sterilized instruments for the professionals to do their job.

Noting the growing tremble, she paused to wring her hands and attempted to relieve some of the tension in her knuckles just as she heard someone address her. Gruff and boyish but with a weary crack to every couple of syllables that had her eyes widening as she spun around on the spot. "William?!" she breathed out in a combination of disbelief and sheer relief. His rugged and peppered features were looking a little worse for wear, which was only to be expected considering they were in the middle of a bloody war...but it was upsetting nonetheless. Far more burly than herself, it took great effort to keep him entirely from collapsing while she snaked one of his arms across her shoulder - which provided more than ample opportunity for April to have at Jade's cheek if she so desired. April, of course, receiving some affectionate scratches behind the ear. "We can discuss your coffee order once we've got you sitting down and all this tended to."

Which is why she was walking with him over to the side to sit him down. This would be one patient she would be tending to herself.
