Her eyes widened, shock and horror jolting her to a status more awake than she expected to be, when Cassandra recoiled suddenly, evidently in pain. The group guessed incorrectly when they followed the trail of the person who fled, and it had allowed the ill-intentioned combatant to get the drop on them. Kitty knew she would have been upset to have any of her teammates injured, but she felt almost paralyzed in the realization that Cassandra had been hurt. It was different somehow than her reaction when the others caught crossfire, and she didn't understand or have the time to analyze it.

Several others immediately rushed the man, and Kitty tried to dash around an arc that would block his path, machete held warningly hoping to avoid his slippery escape.

Shashka averted her eyes for a moment as the blade pierced Cassandra. A flash of silver, a small snikt and a spurt of blood. She could have never guessed there would be people out there willing to murder them when she set off on this adventure. And yet the girl bore it surprisingly well. There was no time to dwell on it though as everyone jumped in at once. Shashka barely had time to blink. The whiz of Saphira's spear, Kitty (Kitty!?) jumping to action with her machete, William's arrow sweeping through the air and Shashka... just stood there dumbly, not wanting to add herself to this close combat clash. She was unwilling to detach herself from her daggers and instead watched the combat, a little overwhelmed.

Saphira's spear hit just as he stabilized, his arrow released just as the assassin returned her fire. His arrow hit its mark but it made little difference: the man was still up and now both Cassandra and Saphira had been hit. Regardless of her injury Cassandra moved to intersect and he loaded another arrow as he, too, moved forward, intending to get to the threat and stop this before anyone else could get hurt or Saphira decided close range was where she wanted to be, too. Aiming carefully, he fired another shot, taking advantage of his line of site still affording him clear view around Cassandra, and jumped off the rock to close the distance to their attacker quicker, casting his bow aside to unsheathe his dagger as he moved.

Her spear hit true but was unable to fully stop him; his next knife found itself lodged in her chest. She winced as the sharp pain pierced through her cloak, knowing it wasn't fatal and yet would probably still need stitches at least. This was the first time in her life she'd been stabbed in the chest, and she must say it was not pleasant. Definitely not something she would do again. And it reminded her how fleeting her life actually was. It put into perspective what she was doing here, and for a moment, just a moment, she wondered if she was doing the right thing. Talking about taking risks and endangering's one's life was one thing, but actually experiencing it was something else entirely. But it wasn't like she could change her mind now, in the midst of battle.

She gathered herself and pulled the knife out with one hand, thinking never had she felt such excruciating pain in her life, and slipped the knife into her own pack as additional weapon and making sure the assassin had one less weapon to work with, then put pressure on her injury with her other hand, the cloak functioning as a temporary gauze. The spear hadn't stuck to the man, and she ducked to avoid the others' attacks as she rushed forward to grab it from its position on the ground.

William's arrow struck true, but the man still wasn't down; at this rate it would be difficult to incapacitate him without killing him. She threw her spear once more, aiming for his dominant arm.

"You're vastly outnumbered, I suggest you give up before you die," she warned.

The assassin moved too quickly for her aim to be true, and Cassandra's lips twisted in frustration. She glanced around quickly, taking in the scenario around her, eyes seeking Kitty first and foremost, checking to make sure she still remained safe. As safe as a situation like this could be, at least. Warm relief swept through her when she spotted Kitty, position to cut off a potential escape route and looking no worse for wear.

Another knife glinted in the darkness, seeking a new target: Saphira. Before anything could be done, the knife sunk through to flesh. Cassandra winced at the sight, being intimately familiar of just how much an injury like that hurt. She hated the fact that someone else in their team had now been injured, and the fact that it was someone as seemingly untouchable as Saphira made it worse.

How much could any of them sustain before the damage became lethal? How many more encounters before they forfeited the upperhand and lost?

But she didn't let these thoughts distract her. The doubts tried to entangle her with their dark whispers but she put her focus instead on the shining beacon of affection she had for everyone in her team.

As Saphira's spear pierced through the air, Cassandra went for the assassin's other arm. She wanted to be absolutely certain the assassin would not be able to harm any more of her friends.

She tried not to wince or panic, despite the fear that surged inside of her when Saphira also took a hit, although it felt dulled compared to the terror incited by Cassandra's injuries. Perhaps she was simply dulled to the second attack because she had already witnessed the first. Kitty held her position, watching the others but mostly watching the man with the daggers. If she could do nothing else, she would maintain this guarded position and prevent his escape. She didn't want to join the fray too closely, especially when two of her teammates were already wounded, but she had to do her part. They couldn't let this devious attacker get another chance or share information about their path and number with some shadowy other party.

She could barely stand to watch as the events unfolded, Saphira and Cassandra both in the immediate path of the sinister man, and then another dagger thrown at William. Kitty simply didn't know what to do. Her mind seemed to react with a delay to every action she witnessed, each "suggestion" something too late to make any real difference in the scenario playing out before her eyes. She wanted to stop Cassandra from moving in Saphira's path, push William out of the way from the dagger, drag the assassin to the ground to stop him from continuing to fight, and so many other attempts at prevention. She could do none of these things. Thankfully, they managed to subdue him. She moved slightly closer, but didn't drop her guard just yet, just in case he got the slip on them again.

As he jumped from the rock the action intensified: the assassin reached down for the spear that had been thrown, but his gaze went past him - to Saphira - and then solidly punched Cassandra, staggering her. His arrow hit its mark, gratefully not hitting Cassandra during the interaction, and Saphira, rushing past him, had to bend dexterously to avoid crashing into Cassandra and having both of them go down. She grabbed for her spear just as the man did, but her grip was surer and she made away with it. Cassandra recovered from the whole mess, pivoting her weight as though she practiced recovering from being punched often; he slowed despite himself, gripping his dagger and waiting for an opening, not wanting to throw either of the young women off or risk getting either of them while they seemed to have control. Saphira's spear flew again, hitting the man solidly in one arm, remarking in her calm, forceful way that it would be in his best interest to give up, and the man spat at her and whipped a dagger out of his jacket with his uninjured arm. William dodged it easily and paused as Cassandra, rather than getting out of range, threw herself at the man to refuse him use of his uninjured arm.

William closed in, lunging to fill the space in front of the man, his dagger posed sideways at the other's throat to discourage him from attempting to hurt anyone else or move too drastically. He kept direct eye contact with the other man, having to pull off his hood with his shield arm and look up at the other to account for his positioning. The moment the brown eyes looked back into his, he concentrated as hard as he could, thinking the words and forcing his will into them as he spoke. "You will yield," he said, his voice filled with utmost authority, and the man relaxed. 

He removed his dagger from the man's throat, keeping his hold on the other's eyes as he made his next commands. "You will surrender any and all medical supplies to us," William stated, tone ringing, "and then you will give up this task, telling no one where you encountered us or what happened here.

Battle wrote:

 William loses 15 MP

The Assassin started shrugging his shoulders in an attempt to take off his lightweight bag, but with one shoulder shot and the other arm held in place by Cassandra, he was not having an easy time of it.

He stepped back then, breaking eye contact with their former opponent and turning his head slightly aside, away from Cassandra as his head grew light and his body heavy. An ache in the space between his cheek bones warned of an incoming nose bleed and a dull pain in his temples whispered of the headache that was to come. He sheathed his dagger beneath his cloak and pulled out a handkerchief to cover his nostrils and catch the blood that flowed from him there. He was acutely aware that Saphira would have an easy time seeing him from where she was and wished he had better control of the aftereffects. She had been hurt - and Cassandra - but they shouldn't've been attacked to begin with.

The flurry of blows was impressive. It was hard to believe the group wasn't full of trained fighters, they way they dodged and weaved through one another's attacks. Shashka pointedly avoided eye contact with the man's massacred arm and she felt her stomach tighten.


"...you will give up this task, telling no one where you encountered us or what happened here."


So the prince means to leave him alive. She didn't agree with it, but she understood. Even with all the rage she could summon, she wasn't sure she could actually take someone else's life. But even so... they were leaving a trail of people behind them who would be very, very angry if they crossed paths again. Fear ebbed in on the edges of her consciousness but there was no way to soothe it. She gritted her teeth and spent a moment looking at the ground, poking at the dirt bitterly with the toe of her slipper. Being useless was really starting to piss her off.

Before she realized it, both man's arms had been incapacitated, and just like that, the fight was over. Saphira heaved a sigh of relief and winced at her injury, holding her cloak against her chest tightly. She watched as William moved in, afraid for him even if the danger was lessened now, and was surprised when she saw him use his power. Because that was him using it. It was obvious now that she knew about it. She'd seen him do the same with the others in the group before, although not like this. Before, he was just ascertaining truth. Now, he was actively inflicting his will upon this man.

Despite herself, she shivered. The idea of such power still terrified her, and she knew he'd said he wouldn't use it unless absolutely necessary, but she never imagined she would witness him using it in front of her. Of course, now his life was actually threatened, so she understood... but it was still scary.

He looked tired, and in pain afterwards, and the bleeding that resulted from using his power did not escape her notice. She looked from him to the others, wondering if they would catch on to what he was capable of doing. If they ever knew, she knew they would not trust him anymore. But they had no reason to think he was able to do such things.

She moved forward to grab the assassin's bag and pulled it away from him. She glanced back at William then, wondering why he hadn't asked why the man was trying to kill him. Maybe he didn't want the rest of the group to hear the offered answer. Still, she wished she knew.

Her injuries pulsed and throbbed, almost distracting in their persistence, but she did not let that stop her from keeping a tight hold on the man's arm. He'd shown already just how formidable an opponent he could be, and she did not trust him.

The words Leon spoke held weight, and, holding so closely to him, Cassandra felt the way they affected the assassin. One moment, struggle and fight burned with each second, and the next, the flame snuffed to smoke. The assassin's body slackened its wild attempts at escape, once so much like a frightened animal cornered by predator, and obeyed the command to surrender.

Was there something more to it, something more intentional to this series of events other than the assassin simply giving in to the futility of trying to escape the snare? She frowned, uncertain, the pain of her injuries clouding any connections her mind tried to create, and when she glanced at Leon, he'd already turned away, face obscured by posture and darkness.

Upon instinct, she pinned the assassin even tighter until it dawned on her that he was trying to obey another part of Leon's ringing words. Hesitant, she pulled away enough to give the man room to remove the bag, but she stayed alert, ready to grapple him once more should he prove to be untrustworthy in his actions. But somehow, she suspected that this would not be a problem. Whatever Leon held in those words of his, they'd had a strong effect.

Perhaps the assassin simply knew when to give in to a losing fight. Perhaps.

Now without a goal to distract her, Cassandra felt the aches and pulls of her injuries, muscles taut with exertion past anything she'd ever felt before. Injuries were nothing new—pushing through sickness and pain was commonplace in Lorham, or else your family would not eat—but this was far and beyond that. With the immediate buffer of adrenaline leaving her veins, she felt it with startling clarity. Every motion, every breath, reminded her of the sharp agony in her side, the warmth of blood seeping through cloth. The punching blow from the assassin's fist had hurt in the moment, solid and powerful, but she'd been struck before, and it was the extra damage to her stab wound she worried over now. The jerking movements of being pushed around could easily have made the wound worse.

She didn't leave from her watchful position over the assassin, however, no matter how much her instinct called for her to push hands to open injury. That was for later, when the danger was well and truly over. For no matter how strange this behavior was, how docile it appeared, she would not trust anything until the assassin was far away from all of them.

Quote :
If Saphira takes his bag and opens it to get the medical supplies, the man would relax, seeming content to wait until she finished. 

In his bag, Saphira would find standard trip items, just on a smaller scale - obviously travelling light. She would find herbs she was familiar with for numbing pain at the sight of an injury, and others that could be made into tea for similar effects for the whole body to a lesser degree. She saw a container with familiar looking salve - a goop used to keep the wound clean and let it heal over well - and some clean(ish) looking bandages.

Would she search for anything else?

Saphira opens the bag and goes through it, removing the healing aids and searching for anything else she can find!
Within the bag, Saphira finds (
but does not yet take, please specify if you would like to remove anything but the medicine and stuff from the bag) 

  • rations
  • waterskin, 3/4 full
  • thin blanket
  • set of knives (3 similar to the ones he had thrown so far)
  • some money
  • a rolled up piece of parchment
  • a folded note



If she didn't open the bag, the man would kneel and rustle through it with his left hand, removing the aforementioned articles and placing them on the ground beside the bag. As he finished, he would seal his pack and shoulder it on his unbloodied left shoulder, stand, and start walking back towards Viachia.

He glanced over and caught her looking at him for a moment before glancing to the others and moving in to help the man remove his bag from his shoulders; even while she was hurt, her pain obvious in the way she held her cloak close to her chest, she was attempting to help keep things moving and assist someone who had hurt them, she being the only one of them who could be assured the other would not lash out again. The bag pulled from the other's shoulders, she looked at him again before opening the pack and searching its contents. He frowned for her, and, kerchief still held close to his nose, closed the distance between them and held out his free hand to take the bag from her to let her rest. "You're hurt," he clarified quietly, "Let me."

She didn't like the way this filthy murderer had just slumped at William's words. Why had he gone from trying with every ounce of his being to jam knives into him to letting the prince rifle through his bag? "It could be a trap," she said, surveying the surrounding area. "He's far too calm. There could be... I don't know, some kind of poison powder or a bomb or some kind of scorpion in there. It could be anything. You should be careful." And someone should slit his throat after. Someone who's not me. She wondered if Saphira would kill the man if she impressed upon her the way William's bleeding heart might lead to his bleeding out someday.

She spotted the herbs and salve and bandages, but frowned as she saw the rolled up parchment and note. There could be information there about why he was trying to kill William. Just then, William himself walked over and extended his hand, presumably for the bag. She moved towards him, deliberately positioning her body against him so that their backs were both facing the assassin.

"You might want to check that," she said in a low voice, nodding at the parchment.

As she picked up the salve and herbs, she grabbed the note as well, positioning it to be safely hidden among the items and her palm while her hand was still inside the pack, before pulling everything out together. She intended to find out as much information about this as possible. She then handed the bag to him.

"There are still some bandages in there," she said in a louder voice, to give him reason to look through it and hopefully get whatever else he wanted or needed as well.

Rather than simply handing it over, Saphira shifted until she was right next to him, her side pressing against his, and his heart seemed to jump in place with worry - did she need support to stand?! Had the strike been that bad, and she too noble to admit it?! Shashka called out about the potential of a trap, a notion he dismissed out of hand for knowing what he did about the circumstances of the surrender of the bag, but rather than address her worries he kept a close eye Saphira for signs of obvious distress, prepared, even, to catch her if she wavered, but instead of leaning farther into him for support, she motioned subtly to something within the bag, her voice quiet, and he understood: she was making a screen for their actions. 

He felt relieved, if foolish still, and reminded himself that Saphira rarely did anything at face value. He nodded and held one part of the top of the bag to better support it. As she removed a handful of the medicinal items, he reached in under her pretense of obtaining the bandages she mentioned and took the opportunity to use the thumb of his right hand to unroll the scroll, his fingers peeling it open from there. It was dark in the bag, but from the starlight overhead he barely made out a sketch of his own features and...

He released the scroll and it rolled itself back up out of material memory, took the bandages into his hand and knelt to deftly reseal the man's bag. He stood, his actions terse, his expression purposefully blank as he handed the bag back over to the man, offering it to his uninjured hand. "My thanks. Good luck on your return trip," he stated, voice crisp and professional as the man automatically accepted the pack, and without further ado, William walked around the would-be assassin and made to return to their campsite at the top of the hill. "You can trust that he will follow instructions," he called back to the others of his group before his chest could tighten so much that he could no longer speak. 

Rather than packing, his eyes staring off into the distance, mind completely elsewhere, he automatically rebuilt their fire and lit a small flame, set a small pot atop it, and used the source to heat some water.

She watched as William unroll the parchment, watching his expression while keeping her own neutral. It was hard to read, but that was probably for the best. She pocketed the medicinal supplies and, as he walked back to camp, she followed, hoping the others wouldn't have too many questions about this whole thing. Surely it was strange to just leave an assassin behind and expect him to do what they asked. Maybe it even made no sense. But William had taken the risk to do that instead of incapacitating him some other way, so she hoped he knew what he was doing.

She waited until they were back at the campsite before she opened the note she had lifted from the bag, curious about the contents.

It was not what she expected at all. Saphira raised an eyebrow in surprise. She considered it for a moment, then sighed. The other three were still with the assassin, so if he wasn't happy about this...

She trudged back to the group and handed the refolded note towards the man. "I seem to have accidentally grabbed something else. My apologies."

The man, who had taken back his bag and had slung it up over his left shoulder, looked to Saphira with some confusion before a spark of recognition crossed his features and he took the note back into his hands, treating it with apparent gingerness while he shrugged the pack back off his back, having a little bit of trouble doing so. 

He reached with his right hand - now striped in blood - to pull open the ties to the sack, wincing, but obviously not wanting the note to be bloodied. He said no word to Saphira, only grunted his acceptance of her admittance of the accident.

She almost wanted to help him as he struggled with putting the note back in his bag, if he hadn't been trying to murder them earlier. As it was, even returning the note was already too nice. With another sigh, she returned to William's side, taking off her cloak momentarily so she could inspect the damage to her wound. It definitely wasn't deep, but it still hurt and needed to be dealt with before it got infected. She sat down beside him and took off her top to reveal her undergarments, seemingly unconcerned about him seeing it. She pulled out the salve and started to apply it carefully onto her wound.

"So... what did you see on the parchment?" she asked William, wincing as she cleaned the wound. The herbs should help with numbing the pain later, once she was done cleaning it.

Even with the docile expression upon the assassin's face, even with him making no sudden movements at all, Cassandra felt on edge. She grimaced at the pain pulsing in her side as she continued to keep a close eye on every small movement the assassin made. She wouldn't allow anyone to get hurt simply because she stopped being vigilant.

Still, she glanced as Saphira and Leon moved about, seemingly unconcerned at all about what was happening. Such confidence that this man would listen to the words Leon spoke to him. It went against Cassandra's instincts, it went against what she thought she knew to expect from the both of them. How were they so content to leave this dangerous man alone without a second glance?

Shashka, at the very least, continued to be wary of this entire situation, but despite her words of warning, neither Leon nor Saphira made comment about the possibility her words held. Instead, they went through the bag with no trepidation at all, and Leon went as far as to tell the group directly that they could all trust the assassin. Trust the man who had already done such damage? A man whose very title of assassin should have been all they needed to stay on high alert?

Cassandra frowned, no longer trying to hide such an puzzled expression. This left a bad taste in her mouth, but she couldn't even begin to make heads or tails of it all. She listened as Leon and Saphira appeared to give little thought to the potential danger, but she did not relax no matter their apparent ease, no matter the way her body protested.

Her earlier thoughts were still the same. She wouldn't rest until this man was gone.

He hadn't... he hadn't really wanted to believe it. He had accepted the possibility, even entertained it, but it had been too fantastic to honestly believe in. Despite where he was, despite what he was doing and the choices he had made getting to this point, part of him, deep down, felt like it was some game. That when he got back to Thelline with the star and presented it to his grandfather all ill-feeling he had towards the man would just be gone, that bringing it back would be met with good-natured teasing at his expense at how he could've waited for someone else to bring it back. They'd remark about how dangerous it was, and how unnecessary, but how it was good publicity nevertheless. That they could use that to launch his tours. That his father would mess up his hair like he used to and comment on how his mother would've been proud. 

But now... it was all true. Or at least enough pieces were fitting into place to make an easy-enough to identify the picture. 

Knees drawn to his chest, he stared at the flames and not much else, strengthening his resolve. It was one thing to let out all his paranoid suspicions to Saphira in the light of day, but now -  

Her voice startled him. He took a deep breath, not exactly sure when she had gotten there, and blinked twice to clear his vision. He cleared his throat, straightening out, and replied, "What I expected." He looked over at her and then quickly away, shocked to see her state of undress, and cleared his throat, marveling at how casually she was acting despite being underdressed, especially in his presence. Her undershirt had been stained and sticky with blood and she was applying some salve on her own - it'd be easier with another person assisting. Staring across the campsite in an attempt to respect her modesty, his gaze near to where Kitty had been sleeping, he said, "You should probably get help applying the salve and wrapping the wound site - I'll see if Kitty or Shashka can help." He stood, "Cassandra may need help, too. The water's to wash the bandages if they need it, or for warm drinks if those would be useful. I'll - " he paused, looking around, and realized there was something useful he could do, "I'll collect the projectiles and your spear and clean them to give everyone some privacy.

He stepped back from the campfire and moved back towards the side of the hill where the action had taken place, walking far enough to see the three other members of their party and the retreating form of the person responsible for the attack. ... Or, the person ordered to carry out the attack, not so much responsible for it. "We should take care of that wound quickly, Cassandra," he called down, waiting to see if Kitty and Shashka would follow before requesting that they do.

It was over, the man was leaving, and everyone seemed generally okay with the outcome. In the aftermath of the whirlwind fight, Kitty stood there nearly dazed, until she heard William call to Cassandra. Her slate blue eyes widened with the memory of the injuries her friend had taken, and she stepped forward towards the other girl with evident concern.

"Here, let's take care of that," she said, ready to lead Cassandra towards the small fire William had started. That would be good—they'd need it. Kitty wasn't really sure what to expect, but she wasn't too worried about the wound as much as she was worried about the person injured.

The petite, pale-haired young woman slipped automatically into the sort of familiar routine she'd used in the past when her siblings or parents injured themselves. Usually no one got stabbed on the ranch, but there were certainly more than enough other perils.

Though relieved that the bag didn't contain anything dangerous, she was horrified to find that not only were they leaving the assassin, they were just letting him waltz off into gods knows where with his bag full of who knows what to do whatever he damn well pleased. They're all insane, she thought to herself, trudging back to the camp.

As she loped along, she was jolted by a view of red from Cassandra's wound. In the tense moment, she had forgotten her entirely. She went to the stalwart girl, shelving interrogating William and Saphira for later. "I don't know much about medicine, but is there something I can do? Maybe, like, water to wash the wound or... something?"

She shifted from foot to foot. She felt more than a little awkward. Shashka usually didn't interfere if she didn't know how to accomplish a task. She liked to just get things done and over with, and hated feeling incompetent, but things were slowly changing. She couldn't remain the same and keep her head above water. She'd learned that much, at least.

His answer was vague, and she could only guess on what it meant. That the King was after him? Was he the one who sent all those assassins? But why? Had he caught on to William's plan somehow? Because otherwise, why go through the trouble when the star catching journey itself might already kill him?

She was too caught up in her thoughts to notice his reaction towards her, until he continued to speak. Kitty or Shashka? She doubted it. Kitty would probably rather take care of Cassandra and Shashka... pfft. She'd probably sooner let the wound kill Saphira. Her suspicion was proven right when she saw both girls quickly tending to Cassandra. She was hoping if anyone, William would do it, but since he seemed hesitant for some reason - and part of her felt confused and hurt that he decided against helping himself, not knowing his true reasons - she let him go.

She continued going through the motions, cutting a piece of gauze, dipping it into the water and cleaning the area of the wound thoroughly, wincing every once in a while. It might be more difficult doing it on her own, but she was used to not having someone else to rely on, so it was fine. She applied the herbs to the wound to numb it, feeling somewhat better once the effects kicked in, and more salve to keep it clean. Bandaging the whole thing was downright impossible on her own, though, so she decided to wait until William returned and see if he would help then.

In the meanwhile she put some of the other herbs into the boiling water to turn it into tea that she and Cassandra could have later. The others could even have some too if they wanted, as it worked for soothing general aches and pains as well.

She didn't stop watching until the man was lost to the shadows of the night, and even then she half-expected an arrow to come whistling through the air, intent and dangerous.

But there was nothing, only the sounds of her friends around her. Leon's words barely registered in her mind, so focused was she on keeping watch. It wasn't until Kitty spoke that Cassandra finally let herself relax, accepting that perhaps things really were over then. It felt so strange, so anti-climactic and wrong, somehow. Was the pain from the injury clouding everything, making shadows and suspicions where there were none?

With Kitty so near and Shashka's questioning bringing her back to reality, Cassandra let all of the strangenss fall away from her. Perhaps there would be a time later to dwell upon what happened, when her mind no longer felt sluggish and drained.

"I don't know much about medicine either," Cassandra admitted, following behind Kitty. Her hands went to her side, felt the sticky warmth of blood. "Hurts." The word tumbled, honest and simple, before she could hold it back, more a realization she hadn't fully let herself feel before this, not while everything had been so dire and dangerous. But she frowned, not wanting to complain. She was not the only one to get injured, after all.

As they made their way back to the campfire, exhaustion hit her with full force. Cassandra sat heavily down upon the ground, limbs like lead, cotton fuzzy in her thoughts, and she looked to Saphira. "Are you okay?" she asked, and looked critically at the red-haired girl to gauge the severity of her injury. Saphira seemed well on the way to fixing it up, or at least what Cassandra imagined such a process to look like. With no true experience with medicine, she only had her books to rely on and even those were lax on details. "Do you need help?"

She didn't know how to help, but she would. Mostly though, she just wanted to sleep.

"I'll show you," the most petite of the trio replied, her mind already ticking through the general checklist of care. She hoped nothing would be so serious that she couldn't at least try her best. Kitty certainly wasn't a doctor, but she had more than enough practical knowledge and experience. She wasn't immune to injuries or illness herself, and had both observed the care others gave her and been forced to improvise on herself, and she was still standing today. She had to believe it would work out fine right now for both Cassandra and Saphira.

When the dark-haired girl from her hometown admitted that she was in pain, Kitty felt a familiar strangled sensation in her chest. She remembered cradling poor Rickert in her arms, listening to the small boy's pitiful whimpering, after he fell from the tall climbing tree near the pasture. He tried so hard to be brave, but she could see the way the arm sagged unnaturally and knew how much he must be hurting. In those moments, taking him in and helping to hold him still while her mother and the village doctor set the break, she shared the pain he felt. That's how it always was for someone you loved.

With the injured party's willing cooperation, they quickly made their way towards Saphira. Kitty busied herself with using the available supplies, thankful for the boiling water. She attempted to give Shashka a few directions and tried to make sure the other girl could clearly see most of Kitty's actions. She wasn't quite the right person to offer any long explanations, but hopefully her teammates relied more on visual and tactile learning. The supplies acquired from the assassin seemed even better quality than what was usually available in Lorham. It didn't take her too long to put them to good use. Cassandra's injury worried her, but she had to trust that she'd done the best she could.

"Pretty good," she said of the nearby Saphira, appraising the now-clean wound. Hopefully it would heal well. The elegant young lady seemed too fancy for uneven scarring.

"Any help?"
