Fallacy of Many Questions

Post by Young Lawrence Keelan » Mon Jan 15, 2018 1:29 pm

Ever since Laurie had received that note at Gringott's he'd been reserved and pensive, but he left Brandt in the waiting area of St. Mungo's to check in and ducked into a spare conference room. "You didn't have to do that," he said to the air, wrapping his fingers around his wand and squeezing gently. "I took it out for you. You can have it back, OK?" He'd purchased some inexpensive gifts with the remainder of his own funds. It wasn't much, but he obviously didn't trust the alternative.

Qingying had kept himself visible to Laurie as that was his own policy, and followed him in.
“I know I didn’t have to,” he said.

"OK," he nodded once, curtly, and withdrew the satchel of galleons to hold it up to Qingying. "There you go." He offered a spare smile.

He didn’t take it for the moment.
“I’m not giving it to you,” he explained. “You can use it and pay back later.”

"Please, just respect my wishes. Keep your money, and, and your gifts, and, then nobody has to worry about paying anyone back. I'll give Mahra what you made for him. It's a very nice gesture. Just, we'll leave it at that."

He opened his palms slightly to show he wasn’t resisting.

“Experiences… are constantly accumulated. That was the past, this is the present. It takes trust in ourselves and also courage to step out into experiences of the present. They will keep affecting you in the present whether you surround yourself in a ring of experiences of the past, anyway. Sometimes we need to allow change, and the new to come inside of us.”

Laurie slammed the door shut and whirled around on Qingying. "OK, I'm eleven and I'm in state care. How exactly are you proposing I pay you back?"

He let out a short laugh, incredulous. "What? OK, I--don't even know how to--" his eyebrows narrowed, and then he drew his hands down his face. "Oh. Oh, fuck."

There was magical surveillance in the hospital but it wasn’t as if they would know of Qingying’s presence anyway.

He stood there quietly.

"OK." He glanced around, and shouldered his bag once more. "OK. Come on." He opened the door and gestured outside. "Let's, uh, let's go."

The door closed slowly – in an effort to be as unthreatening as possible – so they wouldn’t be talking with it open.

“Why fuck?”

He cleared his throat. "Being here is difficult." Qingying had felt it, like a whine building inside Laurie's head that steadily grew louder the closer they got to the hospital. "I'm sorry. All right, I'll, uh, pay you back later. Let the present in and all that fun stuff," he quipped with a smile. So fun. Someone please drop a meteor on him.

"Come on." Laurie stepped out of the room before Qingying could stop him again. "OK, so, Mahra isn't really like me at all. I'm, uh, you know I'm a hybrid, right?" It was the politer way of saying halfbreed.

Well, Qingying was always willing to adapt for him.

He fell into step beside him and gave a nod.

"Mahra is, too. Veela hybrids are notoriously mentally unstable. Unfortunately, Mahra isn't an exception. He's also far stronger than me. It can be hard to, to concentrate, to assert your own will, things like that. I don't know if that will apply to you, but I thought I'd warn you anyway."

Hahaha. Concentrate. Assert your own will.
Didn’t he know about that.

"He doesn't mean it, it's not intentional, and I can usually override him. Relatively speaking, he's safe. It's just not a typical experience, and some people find it overwhelming. If that is uncomfortable for you, we don't have to go."
