She pulls both girls into a hug.

Permalink

Hug.

Ellie is crying a little bit.

Permalink

Anathema's crying a lot!

Permalink

She strokes their hair, breathing raggedly.

"I'm so glad you two are okay."

Permalink

"S-same for you."

Permalink

"I'm sorry I worried you."

Permalink

All the hugs! (Cuddling is only briefly interrupted when a nurse brings in a (still very weak, and exceptionally grumpy) Scarlet, setting their box on Fay's bedside table and putting them in Fay's lap at Fay's request.)

(Fay's going to have... So many questions, and also so many words about risking yourself later, but right now - they're alive, she feels sick and wrung out, and. They need time, first.)

Ellie can give the story they told the Aurors, prefaced as such.

Permalink

Stroke. "I'd like the full story sometime, but - at home."

Permalink

"It's still a month until the end of classes, right?"

Permalink

"Something like that. Professor Dumbledore's been teaching Defense."

Permalink

Small smile. "Hopefully I can get cleared to go back to work soon, then."

Permalink

"That would be good. We've all missed you."

Permalink

Snug. "I'll keep to my medical plans, then."

Permalink

Smile.

"Good."

Permalink

"How've classes been going?"

Permalink

"Kind of weird, since we moved to the new school. There's not as much space and the rooms are set up different. And Professor Lockhart just... ran away."

Permalink

"Good riddance," she mutters.

Permalink

"Except for the part where the castle hadn't been evacuated yet when he did that, yeah."

Permalink

Her expression indicates a wealth of curses she has for him if they ever meet again. 

Permalink

Anathema giggles.

Permalink

Her angry expression fades into a smile. She ruffles Ellie's hair.

"We'll get through this."
