"Maybe I'll let her have it," I sneer as I step close to her for a fraction of a second before I start toward the door, not bothering to look back over my shoulder as I snatch up my things along the way. "Since I lack such empathy."

"Do me a favor then," I say as his hand hits the doorknob, my head held indignantly high. "Try not to get us caught."

I scoff derisively at her comment before slamming the door behind me, my hand lingering on the door knob as I stare down the hallway - deflated the moment the door had shut. Gritting my teeth, I turn around and pull a small vial of oil from my pocket, take care to dip my fingers in it before drawing along the edge of the door.

I can see the intricate web of wards lace their way across the door even as I hear Ljuba's angered movements beyond it. Nodding to myself, I tuck the vial back in my bag and then pull on my coat so I don't freeze on my way out to the van.

As soon as the door slams behind him, I pace to the bed, jerking at the covers to get the dust off angrily. I hardly remember the jar left there, until I hear the glass shattering as it hits the floor. Fuck. Crawling over the bed, I sink into my spot from earlier as I stare down at the mess of broken glass and filth, my shoulders sagging heavily. 

The night passes after this slowly, the lights cut out except for one lone lantern on my bedside table. Curled under the blankets, I lay with my head on one arm perched at the edge of the bed, my other hanging down as my fingers drag over the spilled contents of the broken jar, trying fruitlessly to piece together what I'd broken before exhaustion wins out.

***

It's cold inside the van, even under the mountain of blankets and clothes that I had unpacked and laid out on top of me to keep the chill out. But I dare not use magic out here for something as fickle as comfort. Despite the chill, though, I manage to fall asleep quickly and stay that way.

Despite having fallen asleep so heavily, I struggled through the night to stay that way. Instead, I woke often to the sound of people outside in the hall, or the rooms next door. Or to nothing more than the emptiness of the room after a fitful dream. 

By the time I finally get out of bed, it's more out of resignation than actual wakefulness. After spending the night thinking of more hurtful things I could've said, or more rounded reasons, it settled simply on regret. Regret for lashing out in the first place and driving Lavellan away. A regret that only worsens when I come out of the bathroom to realize just how late it is for Lavellan to not have returned. 

I anxiously dress and pack what few belongings I have strewn in the room, lingering for only a moment over the broken jar of dust before heading for the door. It's broken, and there's nothing I can do to fix it right now, not here anyway. 

The subtle sensation of magic as I pull the door open almost stops me cold as I adjust the bag on my shoulder to peer down the hall in either direction, ensuring no one could've seen or heard anything before I step further out to inspect the door. No, no one would have seen or heard anything, not anyone who wasn't attuned to those things, anyway. My fingers come up to brush across the door, and though it's dried the soft sheen of an oil catches my attention. It's an oil that's familiar, and one I recognize from Lavellan's use of it at his own apartment. 

Smiling to myself, I tug on my gloves and pull the door shut behind me, heading down the stairs to look for him. I expect to find him tucked into a corner booth out of sight, but he's not there. He's not down here at all. There's a brief panic that settles over me as I consider the fact he might have left, and I head out into the cold air towards the van in hopes it's still there.

Pleased to find it parked in the same spot, I step up to peer through the passenger window. I can just make out the bundle of blankets in the back, and I smirk slightly as I come around to open the side door quietly. 

Lavellan stirs, but just only, as the door opens and I set my bag just inside, crawling in and pulling the door shut behind me. I'm not even sure it's latched, but I don't care as I come over to lay near him. Reaching up to tuck the hair from his face, I lean in to kiss his cheek gently, lingering as I whisper my apology.

"Ung," I groan groggily, my eye peeking open reluctantly to glare at her. "Sappy whore," I accuse half-heartedly as I reach out from under the covers to pull her in with me, the warmth of her body inviting me to return a groggy kiss.

I hum against his lips as he pulls me under the covers, my arms snaking around him as I settle into the warm bed he'd made for himself. I pull from the kiss to hug against him, nuzzling into his beard before kissing his neck gently.

"Mm, stop," I breathe without much conviction as I pull her closer to me. "You're going to make me regret not getting my dick wet, what with this let's just cuddle nonsense."

"I just said be close," I breathe against his neck, my kisses light and feathery as I near the collar of his shirt, "This is close."

"Mmm, no," I murmur as I tighten my arms around her and roll over so I'm resting on top of her, my beard scratching across her jaw as I nuzzle at her neck, my hips moving imperceptibly against her. "This is close."

"Mmm," I moan at his weight settling over me, my hands smoothing up his arms before moving to his neck so I can pull him into an indulgent kiss.

My hands wander as we kiss until they eventually find their way to the waistband of her pants. Unfortunately, after last night, I can't bring myself to pull them down. Instead, they simply tease along her hipbones as I rock against her for another moment before sighing against her lips.

"Maybe," I start, resting my forehead against hers heavily. "I can be a touch insensitive at times."

Looking up at Lavellan, I hardly breathe while he speaks, a soft smile coming to my lips before I kiss him softly. My legs tangle with his as I rest my head back against the layers of blankets, a hand coming up to rest against his neck.

"You were trying to help me, I should never have lashed out at you," I say quietly, my thumb smoothing over the coarse hair of his beard as I frown.

I don't respond to that with anything more than a frown as I prop myself up on my elbows to look at her. My fingers trace along her cheeks and lips for a moment before I shift my weight so I can rest against her side with a sigh.

"We should head out soon," I say unenthusiastically.

"How soon?" I frown, disappointed, as he settles in at my side, my arm resting over my chest as I stare at the roof of the van.

"How soon do you want?" I ask as my hand wanders, tugging at the top of her shirt so I can peek down it.

Rolling my eyes, I glance towards him as I rise onto my elbows to stop his roaming eyes.

"I don't know," I shrug, sitting up a bit more as I glance towards the front windows curiously, "How long will you take?" I add with a bit more enthusiasm, pulling my sweater off in one seamless motion before dropping it to the side.

"That's such a tricky question," I narrow my eyes as I lean in to kiss her neck, my hand smoothing across her chest and down her abdomen. "We're kind of in a hurry, but to say quickly would be an insult to my skill. But... quickly?"

"That could work," I nod before leaning my head away so he can get better at my neck, the brush of his beard sending goose pimples down my arms as I close my eyes. The tease of his touch is in stark contrast with the anxious and painful aching that's settled into my body over the last several hours, and it's a welcome distraction.
