PostSubject: Siren Bites?   7/7/2013, 12:43 am

Adelaine pulled up a chair and sat sadly next to the bed in the Hospital Wing. She and Seamus were the only people in the infirmary aside from the nurse. The lad still hadn't woken up, and Professor Renoir brought him in an hour ago.

"When do you suppose he'll come to?" she asked the nurse for the hundredth time.

"He was bitten by a siren, dearie," she stated the obvious. "Even the tiniest siren bite is excruciatingly painful, and this was a big one. He'll wake up by morning."

Adele sighed and stared down at her hands. The guilt she felt was overwhelming. If she hadn't been so stupid...no. It was the siren's fault. The only reason Adele went wandering off was because of the song. Thank heavens Deirdre had the sense to fetch Renoir.

"Well, Seamus," she muttered to the unconscious third-year, propping her head up on on the edge of the bed. "At least you weren't eaten."

Talk about stating the obvious. She slipped her hand through his and held it. At that moment, he blinked and squinted up at her. The next moment, the doors to the Hospital Wing swung open.

Asher took Marigold to the hospital wing after they drank a few butterbeers. She had a sour after taste in her mouth and the gash around her leg was swollen. Asher set Marigold on the bed next to Seamus' and went to fetch the nurse.

"Hey guys."Marigold greeted Adele and Seamus. Seamus had bandages around shoulder and gave Marigold a nasty glare. She ignored it and Asher came back with the nurse.

"Marigold Belet. You should've come immediately to me. This might be infected and there's a small rock in it that it's trying to heal around. Asher, come hold her hand. I need to get the rock out before I can heal it."the nurse said looking at Marigolds cut. Theres a rock in my leg? she thought. Asher came over and held her hand. The nurse counted to three and put her finger in to get the rock. Marigold grimaced and held her breath. She squeezed Asher's hand.

"Got it."the nurse announced. She held it up. It was a little bigger than a pebble and was covered in blood. "I'll be right back with the alcohol." Marigold nodded.

"Ye're a craven."Seamus commented, gripping Adelaine's hand. Marigold turned very red and was shocked at Seamus would say something so mean.

"Shut up you prick. I didn't even see you cast a spell."Asher said in her defense.

"Make me cast one, ye coward. If she 'adn't fallen and ran into the Sphinx, I wouldn' be in 'ere."Seamus snapped back. "Scratch that - if you all 'adn't suggested searchin' tha' bloody cave I wouldn' be in here. I shoulda listened to Adele."

Asher put his arm over Marigold's shoulder defensively. His comment did get to her though. He was right.

Adele went from guilty  to sad to irate all in a matter of seconds. Why couldn’t everyone just forget the whole thing and get along again? They never should have left The Three Broomsticks.

If it’s anyone’s fault it’s Adele’s!” Asher shot back nastily, his arm over Marigold’s shoulder, glaring at her.

How’s it Adele’s fault, ye varlet?” Seamus demanded, wincing in pain and gripping Adele’s hand tighter.

If the stupid minx hadn’t wandered off we wouldn’t have been in this mess,” Asher shouted.

That hit her hard. It was completely true..but no, it was the siren. She wasn’t in her right mind when it happened. Adele wanted desperately to cry, but Beaumonts did not show their emotions. No wonder her father held his power during the wars; he was hard as a rock, and had always taught Adelaine to be the same.

Shut it, both of you!” she stood up, her anger getting the best of her. “Seamus, it wasn’t Marigold who bit you, so don’t blame her. Asher, you’re an idjit if you think it was my fault! Did you not hear a word Renoir said?!

They stared blankly at her, a bit shocked at her outburst. Apparently they had never seen her like this; in fact, Kolby was the only person who ever had. She didn’t like shouting, but there was no other way to drill it into their heads.

If we’re going to point fingers, then here’s how it’s going to be,” she started, angrily. “Marigold, you fell down the hill; you should have run as soon as you stood up. Asher, if you didn’t want to go in the cave you should have stopped everyone. Seamus, yes, you should have listened to me. As for me, I was entranced by the siren’s song first and didn’t have the sense to put it together.

She sat back down in a huff, glaring at all three of them. If she had been able to say what she wanted, she’d have called Asher a sorry excuse for a Gryffindor, and Marigold and Seamus stupid for allowing their bloody curiosity to overcome them. She would have called herself a fool for not seeing the danger sooner and saving them.

Then the nurse returned.

Marigold sat in silence as the boys fought. She really didn't mean for them to yell at each other. Then, Asher insulted Adele. Marigold hit him on the arm, a shocked expression on her face. That was just down right hateful. she thought.

Then, Adele exploded with anger. Marigold sat there, staring blankly at the floor. She rubbed her arms, trying to comfort herself. Then, the nurse came back.

"Alright. I'll pour some of this on the cut and then put a couple of stitches in. I'll have to keep you overnight just as a safety measure."the nurse said.

Seamus groaned and Marigold wrapped her arms around herself. She didn't appreciate being disliked. The nurse left to get the stitches and Asher was about to say something. Marigold covered his mouth.

"Just drop it. I know tensions are high after everything we've been though today so lets just calm down."Marigold said.

Seamus rolled his eyes but Asher apologized to Adele. Marigold smiled and turned Adele.

"I just want to say thank you for everything you've done today. If you hadn't used that spell, I would be dead. So, thank you so much."she said, giving Adele a hug.

Adelaine's expression softened a bit at Marigold's apology. She hugged her tightly in return. Asher's apology, however, didn't seem a bit sincere so she continued to give him the cold shoulder. Quiet hung over the room when the nurse returned to check up on Seamus.

"Let's see how this is doing, then," she muttered, unwrapping the bandages. She gasped. "This is infected. How did I not see this before, what was wrapped over this before Renoir's bandages?"

Adele looked quickly to Marigold. It was a spur of the moment thing, she knew, done only to help Seamus. But probably wasn't too smart.

"Erm, Marigold wrapped her scarf around it.." she murmered, hoping her friend wouldn't be upset for being thrown under the carriage. "She had it wrapped around her leg at first.."

That did not seem to make the nurse happy. She pulled out her wand and conjured a small sponge, which she poured alcohol on. Seamus winced and gasped when the woman dabbed the sponge on his wound.

"Don't know what you were thinking, Marigold Belet," she said angrily, putting fresh bandages on the bite. "You would have done better to leave it alone, better than practically dousing his wound with your blood."

Seamus gave Marigold another nasty glare, and Asher glared back at him. Leave it to a sphinx and a siren to tear two best friends apart. The nurse left, still muttering to herself, after telling Adelaine and Asher that they had an hour.

"Adie, would ye mind closin' ta curtain?" he asked, shifting on the bed.

Asher jumped up and closed it before she could even move; that certainly didn't lighten the tension in the room. "Sorry, Adele, but I don't want to see him any more than he wants to see me," he grunted through the curtain.

Fifteen minutes of silence between the two pairs passed. Seamus finally turned to Adele and smiled.

"I'll listen ta ye next time," he mumbled. "Don' blame yerself, by the way. Ye're still ta bravest person oi know."

Adelaine blushed and grinned, not certain what to say.

Marigold and Asher sat in the awkward silence, the nurse stitching up Marigolds leg. Thanks to a numbing spell, it didn't hurt as much. But, she winced every now and again. The nurse smiled at Marigold though.

"I know you were trying to help and thank you. But, please leave it to professionals. Come back later and I'll teach you some spells. With the way kids get hurt around here, I could use some help."she commented, pouring her a glass of water. Marigold smiled and said thank you. The nurse left, saying that visiting hours would be over soon. Marigold looked at Asher.

"I'm sorry for ruining your friendship with Seamus."she said sadly. Asher chuckled and kissed her hand. Marigold blushed.  

"Don't worry about it, we'll get over it eventually. And, the nurse was right. You were just trying to help. All of us know that. Even Adele."he said, rubbing her hand. Marigold smiled. He was right.

But, she was still uneasy about Seamus' sudden hatred for her. She really didn't want to be left overnight with him. She didn't know how many of his hateful comments she could take. Suddenly,she heard a gasp behind the curtain.

Adele and Seamus chatted quietly behind the curtain, going over the day’s events. What was supposed to have been a regular, fun trip to Hogsmeade turned into a near-death experience within seconds. Luckily no one had been seriously injured, though, or worse..

Do you think you and Asher will be fine?” she asked quietly, thinking about the seething Gryffindor.

Aye, we’ll be a’right once we talk et ov’r,” Seamus half-smiled, half winced in pain. “Adie, do ye suppose….could ye maybe stay ‘ere tonight? I don’ fancy bein’ alone wit Marigold righ’ now.

You know it wasn’t her fault any of this happened.

Adelaine’s smile faded quickly. Why was Seamus so set on blaming Marigold? He had to know it was actually Adele’s fault in a way…unless he was too intent on keeping on her good side, and wouldn’t blame her even if it was her wandering that caused this.

Fine, um…” she looked around, thinking up a reason to stay; she gasped loudly. “Ouch!

Seamus sat up immediately, a worried look on his face, before he saw her grin. Adele gripped her leg as the nurse came rushing over, pulling apart the curtains.

What is it, what’s happened?” the old woman demanded, grabbing her leg.

I think..I think my muscle may be in spasm!” Adelaine complained. “I tripped in the forest..

The nurse immediately ushered her to the bed next to Seamus, conjuring some sort of contraption to prop her left leg up. She then rubbed a thick, greenish ointment to numb the “pain” and told her she’d be staying the night as well.

Asher, you’ll have to go in 20 minutes,” she insisted, before heading back to her little room.

Asher moved the curtain when he heard the gasp. Adele was holding her leg. Something about a spasm. Marigold smiled. At least she wouldn't be alone with Seamus. The nurse told Asher that he had to leave in 20 minutes. He rolled his eyes and moved the curtain back.

"Look. If he gives you any trouble or you get lonely, you can contact me, Peyton, or Gavin. Let me show you."he said, pulling out his wand. Marigold pulled her out too. She looked it over. There was a small chip in one of the roses. She hoped that it wouldn't interfere with her spells or classes. Asher pulled out a little statue of a bird.

"The spells called Piertotum Locomotor. You just point at the bird. It'll come to life and you can tell it where to go. For example."he said. He pointed his wand at the bird and it sprung to life. He sent it to find Peyton and Gavin. She nodded in understanding.

The bird came flying back after a minute. He handed it to Marigold and left the hospital room after a hug.

"Aww. Is Ashy getting attached?"Seamus mocked. Marigold sighed and hid the bird under her pillow. It was going to be a long long night.

Later the night

Marigold laid wide awake in bed, trying to sleep. But, it wasn't very comfortable. Plus, the siren nightmare was burned in her mind. Everyone just dead in an instant. And, those two girls.....She looked over to where Adele's bed would be. It was quite dark. The nurse only left a small candle burning in the corner. Not the best of light.

She looked at Seamus. He was sleeping but was muttering things.Is he okay?Marigold thought. She didn't know if he had night terrors. Suddenly, he started screaming and yelling.

"No Mum! Ye're a great cook. I didn't mean it! No!"he yelled. Marigold got the bird from under her pillow and sent it to get Asher. She then swung her legs over the side of the bed. She grimaced at the pain. She didn't think it would hurt so badly. Then again, the stitches were fairly new. But, she really needed to help Seamus. She looked at Adele.

"What should we do?"she called over Seamus' screaming. He was now jolting in bed and kicking and punching. There was no way two first years could restrain him on their own.

Adele had been halfway asleep when Seamus started talking in his sleep. Before long, he was shouting. It seemed like he was having a terrible, terrible nightmare, until they finally shook him awake and the dream seemed to continue.

"No, no, I won't!" he shouted, pointing in front of him, sitting up in the bed. "Adie, Marigold, tell him I won't!"

"Seamus, what're you talking about?" Adele asked, shaking him again. Was he simply sleeping with his eyes open? "Tell who??"

"What're ye on abou'," he said, looking at her like she was out of her mind. "Don' ye see 'im standin' dare?"

Adelaine turned her head slowly; there was no one there. She hopped out of bed and started to run to the nurse's office before she remembered it was too "hurt" to move. Climbing back in bed, she turned to Seamus.

"Who do you see there, Seamus?"

"My father," he mused, befuddled. "He wants me ter join 'im an' be a sellsword."

Marigold sat back down on the edge of her bed and listened to Adele talk to Seamus. Her eyes widened when he said his father was a sellsword. Sellswords are swordsmen that sold their services to the highest bidder. But, they would betray you at a drop of a pin. They were incredibly dangerous and unreliable. Marigold couldn't see Seamus being a sellsword. He didn't seem like that kind of person.

"No, i don' want to! No! Jus' lemme righritkh jurhi. "he yelled, holding his arms up like he was about to get whipped, his words becoming slurred and unintelligible. Marigold covered her mouth. She really hated seeing her friends like this. Asher came running with the nurse.

"Girls, get back in bed. He's hallucinating. Asher, come hold him down. I have to calm him down."the nurse said, grabbing a potion from a cabinet. Asher held Seamus down and the nurse tilted his head back. Then, she uncorked the potion and poured it in his mouth. Seamus swallowed and shook his head.

"I gave him a Wit-Sharpening potion. It should help him be able to tell the difference between a hallucination and reality. Now, I'm going to give him a Dreamless Sleep potion so he can't have night terrors. This should help him through the night."the nurse said, writing all this down on his medical report. She also wrote down the potions she used to give to Professor Aitken to make. Then, she made Seamus drink the Dreamless Sleep potion. Seamus slowly sank back into his pillow and the nurse went back to her station to get some sleep.

"Are you okay?"Asher asked Marigold, helping her back into bed. But, she couldn't sleep. The nightmare was to fresh and scary.

"Well, the nightmare the Siren caused......it's haunting me. It won't go away and I can't stop thinking about it."Marigold said, tracing shapes into the blankets. Asher nodded and sat on the edge of her bed.

"Would a lullaby help?"he asked. Marigold shrugged and yawned. It might help. It can't do any harm.she thought to herself. He smiled and tucked her in, kinda like a big brother. Then, he cleared his voice and sang a lullaby. Marigold recognized it right away. It's called The Fox.

"The fox went out on a chase one night,
he prayed to the Moon to give him light,
for he had many a mile to go that night
before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o.
He had many a mile to go that night
before he reached the town-o.

He ran 'til he came to a great big pen.
Where the ducks and the geese were kept therein.
He said "A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o.
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
before I leave this town-o."

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck,
and he slung the duck across his back.
He didn't mind the quack quack quack
and the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o.
He didn't mind the quack quack quack
and the legs all dangling down-o.

Old Mother Pitter Patter jumped out of bed.
Out of the window she popped her head, yellin',
"John, John, the grey goose is gone
and the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o!
John, John, the grey goose is gone
and the fox is on the town-o!""


Marigold felt her eyes get heavy as he softly sang in his mid tenor voice. It was lovely and she had a feeling he sang to his younger siblings quite often. After a while, Marigold had fallen asleep.
