Yin, Salvatore, Lonerin
Dubhe was only half-startled when the young boy suddenly approached them. He stuck a piece of paper on her arm and claimed to be a friend. She could tell he wasn't human and when he transformed into Lonerin, she figured he'd be some kind of familiar.
She was torn between wanting to trust him and between healthy suspicion. She looked at the piece of paper stuck on the fabric of her shirt. There was no time to deal with this properly now, so she just pulled it off and ripped it to pieces. At least now the presence of that one familiar-like bird was explained. That left still another that was trailing them.
They suddenly stopped and turned into a narrow alley and reached a small flat. Dubhe didn't take any time to catch her breath and went over to where Lonerin was laying. Her healing skills were less than mediocre and this was the first time she regretted not taking more interest in that field. Hanging her shoulders, she listened to Salvatore. "Thanks. He would've never done this voluntarily." she said quietly "Just who are you though? Showing up and helping me without apparent reason…" she looked into his eyes, the milky white making it hard to focus on them.
Her attention was drawn from him to Lonerin, who made an indistinct sound. She kneeled down next to the bed and gently took his hand. His external wounds were only minor, but who knew how much internal damage had been done. "Lonerin. It's me…Dubhe. Please hang in there…" Up close she noticed just how bad he looked. Like he'd been through hell and back. A former shadow of himself. "I promise I'll get you out of this, just stay strong, I don't want to lose you. You're all I have…" she could feel the moisture in here eyes build up again and felt silly.
She wasn't used to crying anymore.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen
or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.
