He nodded, and then looked at Laurie and Mahra. “If you guys don’t have anything else to say to Yarah, I’m going to walk her back?”

Laurie and Mahra both nodded. "Yeah, that's OK," Laurie said.

“Okay,” he said, rose, and accompanied Yarah into the corridors.
“Is there any information on development of sexuality and puberty in Veela or Veela hybrids?” This was obviously why he’d chosen to ask while they were alone.

Yarah started laughing, but it wasn't cruel. "Not that's publicly accessible, I'm afraid. Laurie's been very helpful in that arena, being very blunt as to what types of things to expect. Veela physiology is much different. There isn't much of a separation between sexual or emotional relationships, although from what I understand, the emotional aspect comes first. Puberty involves an increase on all levels of a Veela's mental and physical capacity, that which allows them to influence others. To Veela, this is normal and natural, but to a hybrid living in human society, there is obviously some problematic issues involving consent. Mahra and Laurie both have complicated factors here in that they haven't necessary intuitively learned these things, so that is something that the treatment team here is prioritizing in emotional counseling."

He nodded thoughtfully. “Ah, I was asking because – I’ll be with them from now on and, also, I thought they’d begin puberty soon, and children are taught about it.”

"Ahhh," Yarah nodded. "Is that something you're interested in discussing with them?"

“Yes,” he nodded, but he was looking at her; always happy to listen to what she had to say.

She just smiled. "Tread lightly, and prepare for landmines."

He knew she was purposefully being vague, but he didn’t want to do something that may be bad for them.
“Landmines?” They passed by a magical vending machine, and his gaze flicked to it with a small smile as he recognised this was where Laurie had gotten his pepperoni.

"Metaphorical ones," she laughed. "That kind of conversation is something all kids need to hear, and they're at the right age for it. Laurie had a lot of experiences which make him feel he is equipped to understand what you're going to be talking about. He's not. Neither is Mahra. I'm sure that they'll both be perfectly capable of handling the discussion, and it's something they need to hear from an adult who is invested in their wellbeing."

He smiled softly. “You are too.
Anything I shouldn’t say – or be more tentative about?” He knew many things shouldn’t be hidden or vague.

"This is a completely normal conversation, and it has to be had. There will be topics of sensitivity, but I'm confident that Laurie and Mahra will be able to handle it, provided you are a patient teacher. Which, I'll hazard a guess, you appear to be." Her eyes crinkled kindly.

He smiled at her. “Okay,” he nodded. They’d reached her office, and he glanced back down the corridor that lead to Mahra and Laurie before bringing his gaze back to her. “I’ll try to come again the day after tomorrow.”

He nodded as confirmation. “Thank you, Yarah. It’s a pleasure to meet you.” He gave her a genuine, warm smile that curved his eyes into little half-moons.

She grasped her hand in his to give it a shake and then slid into her office, shutting the door behind her. Mahra and Laurie had already said their goodbyes by the time Qingying returned.

Qingying joined Mahra with a smile. “I’ll try to come back soon, okay?”
Then Mahra could get to know more about Qingying and they could also make the filter.

Mahra grinned. "Yes," he said lightly, and hugged Qingying goodbye as well.

He hugged him back and gently stroked his hair. "See you later, Mar," he said with a smile, and then Qingying and Laurie departed.

Qingying spent that night and the next day studying the information Yarah had given him and doing research while Laurie was with Brandt. Qingying wanted to visit Mahra every day :c but leaving Brandt on his own too frequently also wasn't appropriate, so he'd asked to visit Mahra a day later. In the meantime, he periodically chatted with Mahra using the Bifracetransferer when the child wasn’t in therapy or spending time with his friends.

As he was reading and during one of the periods he and Laurie were alone, Qingying asked, "Are you aware when Mahra is connected to you mentally, and when you act as a shield for him? And has Mahra been unstable from when he was little?"

Laurie was curled up on the opposite side of the bed, an arm wrapped loosely around his left knee. "Sometimes, sometimes, and yes."

“Do you feel any of what Mahra feels as harmful stimuli when he is connected to you or using you as a shield?”

"It depends. Usually no. But sometimes Mar got overwhelmed by someone particularly bad, and he needed me, that's when I'm aware of it. I helped make a spot in my mind where he could go, to shut out all the things he saw."

"I don't know. It's not conscious." Laurie was staring at the wall the entire time, not meeting Qin's eyes.
