Icarus nodded and closed his eyes for a moment, "Thank you." he murmured. He didn't feel nearly as bad when she was around, which was quite nice for him.

"Yeah." Aurora answered, sounding distracted as she opened and shut the door. Padding down the stairs, a small smile started to form on her lips. He liked her...and he was kind. He had tried to kill her before, but only because they had been fighting. He was a nice man....a good man. Her smile slowly faded as her feet hit the bottom floor. Why had he turned to this kind of life when so many others had been opened to him?...

Icarus closed his eyes and smiled a bit, things were looking a little better with Aurora. She was nice, a little shy, and a bit rought around the edges. Icarus liked her and he hoped that she didn't leave before he got the chance to get a little closer to her.

Aurora padded to the kitchen type of area of the shop and looked around. She could hear the woman around...but didn't see her. She didn't want to startle the woman, so she simply cleared her throat. "Excuse me?" She called.

(that last bit is the latest)

The small woman jumped slightly and then turned to the sound of Aurora's voice. "Yes?" she answered, stepping out so that she could be seen. "May I help you?"

"He needs some more brandy." Aurora said, hooking a thumb at the ceiling. She looked closed off in front of the woman, fully aware of her wounds. She half waited for the woman to say something.

The woman nodded quickly, "Yes, I'll get some for you right away." she slid behind the small counter up at the front of the shop and rummaged around for something. A few moments later, she brought out a new bottle of alcohol. "This should do it."

Aurora nodded, a little surprised that her face hadn't caused a reaction. She did not smile...she did not show any emotion visibly as she took the bottle. "Thanks." SHe said curtly, turningon her heel as she padded back up the stairs.

The woman nodded, "You're very welcome." she closed her eyes and then began bustling about the shop in the hopes of cleaning things up.

Aurora paused at Icarus's door upon getting there. Did she still have to knock?...should she just come in? Timidness struck her hard once more. She couldn't....she couldn't open herself up...she'd hurt him or he'd hurt her. She bit down on her lip fiercely, repremanding herself. But it actually ended up hurting a bit more than she had meant...it tore a stitch or two. Well damn...now they'd have to be redone. She sighed at the thought and just opened the door and walked inside. "Got the bottle." SHe murmured.

Icarus smiled faintly when she came into he room. "You waited outside for a long time." he murmured quietly, knowing t hat she had been hesitant to re-enter the room. "I won't bite." he joked, smiling weakly.

Aurora turned her head away a tiny bit to hide the broken stitching and shrugged a little, more quiet and reserved than she had before. "I dodn't know what to do." She murmured, putting the bottle down beside the water basin.

"Next time...you can just come inside." He assured her, "Even if you did interrupt my sleep, it wouldn't upset me. The worst I would do is groan a bit and maybe whine like a small child."

"Ah." She said quietly, uncorking the bottle and dumping it's contents into the basin. She took the remains of her other shirt and dipped them into the basin, her eyes staying on her work. Who was she kidding? She didn't know how to like someone... Aurora's hands stilled in the allcohol and she just stared at her reflection.

Icarus watched her silently for a long moment, unsure of what to say. He didn't want to make her feel uncomfortable, but he did want to be able to talk to her. "So...did you want to go out and get some fresh air? We could go for a small walk..."

"Between your back and my face?" Aurora asked, her voice surprisingly soft and quiet.

"I'd give it a shot." he replied, "Especially if you needed some fresh air."

Aurora just shook her head and steeled herself as she cupped her hands in the basin and drew them out. She touched her palms to her face and made a near strangled squeek as she fought down the pained sound. She trembled as stinging overwhelmed her...before it faded. Aurora backed off and lifted the front of her shirt slightly to dab the blood away. "I'm fine. and you don't need to be walking anywhere." She murmured, her voice a bit thin.

Icarus was up in a flash, ignoring the sharp pain in his back as he stood. She was still hurt and he should be taking care of her. Her words kept him rooted to his spot and he nodded, "Once we're both better, I'll take you on a walk...fresh air clears the mind."

Aurora had jerked away from the basin as she heard him get up so fast. She backed away on instinct a step or two, facing him with her hand on the table the basin was resting on, her other hand spread out beside her for stability. She calmed instantly when she saw he was still beside the bed. She nodded at his words, turning her face away once more carefully. It was childish she knew....it would be better for her to get those torn stitches fixed...but damn it..she didn't want him to have to peel out all the others just to fix two torn threads...even if they were all attatched to the same string and would soon unravel the rest of the way...

Icarus slowly walked over to her, wearing a pained look on his face. "You're stitches tore?" he watched her for a moment before he reached out and touched her hand with his fingertips. "Please...let me help you."

Aurora tensed for a split second, before she found herself relaxing. "Yes." She answered slowly, her eyes finding something else to look at, namely her shoes.

Icarus took her hand and gently pulled her over to the bed, gently pushing her down so that she was s itting. "It'll be fine." he promised, grabbing the small pouch that he kept a needle and some thread in.

Aurora nodded, her back straightening stiffly. She could handle pain...she thought...she could handle it because she understood it. Aurora hardened her gaze as she watched her hands in her lap, shoulders squaring in preparation.

Icarus was very careful, gently removing the torn threads before he began stitching her face back together again. He murmured reassuring words to her as he did so, knowing that it would most likely help her stay somewhat calm.

Aurora didn't flinch, but her eyes did water a little. It wasn't something she could really help. Her shoulders slowly lowered about halfway through the proceedure, the true volume of her pain becoming visible by the simple movement. She eased as he spoke to her. She found that she loved his voice...or atleast liked it. When he was finished, she was not trembling, though it took some will power to make that happen. She didn't want to look weak...honestly didn't want to.

Icarus put the needle away once he was done and gently turned her head slightly so that he could look at her. "I think you should get some rest." he said softly, "The more sleep you get, the more time your body has to heal."

Aurora watched her with blank eyes, lifeless eyes used to hide her pain. SHe gave a slow blink behind her barriers and moved her head in a slight nod.
