She'd nod moving over to him to check and wincing in sympathetic pain. "How's your head?"

"Sore enough that even I know it's time to quit," he said. That was downplaying slightly-- his head was aching.

She'd nod. "Alright, lets head out and we can get you a potion and talk about what we think just happened."

He nodded, closing his eyes. When he reopened them, they were both in the living room.

She'd stand and straighten her clothes before leaving the room and coming back with a potion for him. This one was a darker green than normal almost boarding on black. She'd offer it to him.

He drank it down, wincing at the taste. "That one was different than what I usually get."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:17, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah I had to brew up another batch since we were out and I used some extra ingredients to strengthen the normal version since we'll be messing with your head...hopefully it'll be more effective."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 15:18, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "So... that was something in there."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:20, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...let your head stop pounding then we can talk." She'd sit on the floor and take a potion herself...one of the lime green normal variety Eric was very familiar with by now.


NewEric

 – 15:22, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He furrowed his brow. "You... don't normally take potions after being in my head. Are you okay?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:24, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah, just a little headache. You're not the only one who got tossed around. I think you probably took the worst of it since it was your head though."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:28, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Okay." He wasn't entirely sure she wasn't downplaying.


Melinda Adult

She'd nod and sit back against the wall closing her eyes and giving the potions time to help both of their heads settle some.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:33, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He did the same, since she clearly wasn't ready to talk about things yet... or at least figured they should wait some.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:35, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
Once her own headache had dulled some she'd open her eyes again. "Ready to talk yet or is your head still hurting too much?"


NewEric

 – 15:38, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

"I'm fine to discuss what happened," he said. He frowned. "I've been thinking about it... I wonder if I could find the memory where I learned it was you at the Ball. If that would unlock things."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:40, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
"Maybe but since that memory would have me it would probably be locked somewhere with all the other memories of me." She'd pause. "Do you think that reaction was some sort of defense or...just your mind reacting to something it wasn't sure was real or not?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:42, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"It didn't feel like a defense," he said shaking his head. "A defense would feel like it was coming... from some outside force, like with the butler man at the entrance that we defeated. This felt like it was coming from... me. My own... lack of specifics on the memory."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:46, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "So...it was probably your mind defending itself against what it thought was an attack." She'd frown. "Like...me trying to mess with your memories."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:49, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "How would my mind perceive it as an attack? I just said it didn't feel like a defensive reaction. More that... I was asking my mind to do something it... couldn't."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:53, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
"If I'm in there and I...try to change or influence things too much your mind could identify me as an intruder. I guess I assumed when you said it wasn't a defense I thought you meant it wasn't a defense you or your parents created not that...it also wasn't your mind defending itself." She'd pause. "So you think it was because you were trying to remember something that wasn't there to remember?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:56, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"Something like that... It felt like I was trying too hard to remember something that I just... wasn't going to. Like the memory was right there... but that ultimately I never would."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:58, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Which makes sense if the memory was locked away or..." She'd pause and frown. "You don't think they could have somehow just...removed them do you? Made it so we can't recover them with a memory charm or something?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:00, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He shook his head. "I still think the fact that you're in there... has something to do with it. They wouldn't have done anything causally. It was all very deliberate."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:05, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I'm not saying your wrong just that we don't have all the pieces yet. Maybe they just couldn't get rid of me completely so they had to work with what was there." She'd pause. "How sure are you about it? I mean on a scale from really don't know to completely certain?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:06, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

"Closer to completely certain," he said.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:08, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
"Well maybe it's you mind telling you something or something you know on an intuitive level then."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:09, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Perhaps... I should go in without you at some point. Question her... without you there to be... distracting."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:11, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd raise one eyebrow, questioning. "Distracting?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:13, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

"Well... to have two of you in there at once... it was rather strange."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:17, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. She'd sort of hoped he meant something else. He hadn't shown any signs that he was attracted to her at all since he'd been rescued. She hadn't expected it when he was still so weak and recovering but...she'd shake her head slightly. "Yeah, it was rather odd looking at myself that way too. It might be a good idea."


NewEric

"I don't know if it's weird for her," he admitted. "But until I know what sort of emotions, or even memories, that she's attached to... it's hard to know what function she serves. I'd hate to be getting to know her and for her to just... attack you, in the process."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:21, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "She didn't act very...lifelike. I wonder if that means she's not attached to much or if that was intentional."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:23, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"Or that we didn't... poke to whatever it is that she is attached to."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:25, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...could be that too. Just be careful poking around alone in there when you go in. There might be traps or defenses left to go off if you're in there doing things by yourself."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:27, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"I've got enough training that I think I can handle things. And I have the advantage of knowing how my family works."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:28, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. She knew he was right but it just felt odd to be left out after having helped care for him for so long.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:31, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He looked at her with a small smile. "You don't always have to take care of me."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:32, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She wasn't sure how to respond since it felt like she did sometimes. She'd just nod.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:35, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned slightly. "Did I say something wrong?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:37, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "No. I guess...I'm just trying to figure out our new relationship since everything's changed."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:40, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"Which is why I'm trying desperately to get my... our... memories back."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:46, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Right but...that doesn't mean we don't have any type of relationship now. Since you were rescued it's been mostly a caretaker type relationship while you were healing, hence the nurse outfit in your mind. Even since you've gotten better it's still been mostly that since I've been doing the cooking, cleaning, laundry and everything else." She didn't seem upset by this just thoughtful. "So we have a current relationship and sometimes it's just hard to figure that out or how that might affect things later you know? I mean can you imagine how the would seem to someone on the outside? I'm living with my Ex-fiancée who can no longer remember me and mostly trying to help him regain his memories and physical strength."

"If I've seemed ungrateful for any of it, I apologize," he said. He moved a little closer to her. "You've been... the kindest person to me. And the only way I can think to repay the kindness is to... find myself again so that I can be the person you so desperately want me to be."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:57, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head slightly. "I wasn't looking for an apology or anything...just explaining why I wasn't sure how to respond to you saying I didn't always have to take care of you." She'd pause a moment. "...and I guess I should ask if you want to be the person you were. I mean you just outlined it well...the person I desperately want you to be but if that's not who or what you want..." She'd shrug.

"I have no one else to be," he said. "I don't want to be a... broken, useless version of myself... the way I am now. It gives me something to fight for. Almost a way to... fight back against them, and something they stole from me," he said, his voice steeling some.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:02, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Ok."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 17:04, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

Without thinking, he leaned in and gently kissed her cheek.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:08, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
It felt nice and she wanted so badly to take and move his lips to hers...but she resisted the urge.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:12, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

He lingered slightly, his face very near hers before he closed his eyes and pulled away. It felt painfully familiar... but it also made his head ache.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:13, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd catch him wince and pull back slightly. "Sorry."


NewEric

 – 17:15, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

"I want to... you have to know that. But... any time I've thought about it, I get a headache."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:17, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd frown. "I'm...sorry." She hadn't realized she had been causing him pain. She'd look away.


NewEric

 – 17:19, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"Melinda, do you really think I could be around a beautiful woman as much as I am... especially one who's told me we were engaged... and not think about the various possibilities?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:21, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shrug and look back at him. "You've been recovering and had a lot on your plate and to deal with."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:24, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"You downplay your beauty, and kind heart, Melinda. I'm surprised you never found anyone else... or had someone else chase after you."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:26, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
"I...never really looked for anyone else and I can be pretty scarce at times which most guys don't want to deal with." She'd pause feeling awkward. "If it'll help I can...make myself hideous or something."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:27, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He laughed out loud at that. "Why on earth would I want you to be hideous?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:32, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shrug her face serious. "Less...recognizable as me and less attractive so it wouldn't hurt your head or...anything else...as much."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 17:35, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He shook his head. "I want to see a beautiful face every morning. It helps."


Melinda Adult

She couldn't help but smile her voice a whisper. "Ok."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:54, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

He didn't want to get her hopes... or his own... up any more than they likely already were. "I think I'm going to go lie down for a bit."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:58, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod.

He reached over and gave her hand a squeeze before standing and heading upstairs.
