dragonofgrey: (Draco and Mia outside)
[personal profile] dragonofgrey
Draco and Mia entered the Guild, and it was obvious that he could barely keep it together at this point. It was only when they reached her rooms, and an anxious Alhena briefly startled him.
She whined, and babbled with concern as he flopped onto a couch in Mia's sitting room.

He then bent over, sobs overtaking him completely.

She gently puts her arms around him, sitting down next to him.

"I know, I know, it's hard," she tells him quietly. "I'm here for you, darling, to help however I can, and we have friends and family here."

She has to be strong for him now.

That way, he'll be strong for her when she needs him to be.

He just continued crying, and clung because he could barely feel her there. Between the war, and then the added stress of family estrangement. It was just too much for him.

She held him tight.

"It's over now. We'll find a way through this. We just have to take it slow."

She starts quietly humming to him. It's not quite as good as Luna, but it's the best she can manage for now.

It was going to take a while to stop. He shuddered, and the sobs starting going into choking cries as he slowly got it out of his system.

"I know, I know," he finally gasped out.

She gives him a kiss on the forehead.

"How about we take a little holiday from everything, just hole up in here for a little while, and in a few days we can see about opening your shop?"

There's a gentle knock on the door.

"I'll get that. I'll only be gone a moment."

Too bad Mia's too nice to tell people to sod off.

Draco just curled up on the couch. Alhena nuzzled him worriedly after she hopped up, and he just cuddled her quietly.

"Luna?"

Mia wasn't expecting her to be there.

"Majesty Lemia told us you were away and that you and Draco might need us when you came back."

The Guildmaster decides to let her friend in after a moment.

"Draco?" Mia says. "Did you want to move somewhere more comfortable?"

She has some idea of what Luna might do.

Draco just shrugged wordlessly, and curled up more. Alhena in the meantime got up, and barked at Luna. Likely telling her to help Papa stop hurting.

Luna leans over and scritches Alhena.

"Don't worry, love, I'll help him," she tells the pup.

Mia sits on the floor near the couch, watching as Luna leans over Draco.

"I'm sorry this has to be the way we first met, but at least I should be able to help."

And the former goddess starts singing a lullaby, one with her soothing, calming sleep magic.

If any dreams visit Draco during this sleep, they will be peaceful ones.

Draco's eyes drifted shut easily. He already found out that he could go under trances easily, and this was akin to that. But even more calming and soothing.

He uncurled a little as his body relaxed, and his breathing became even and slow. Even asleep, he didn't look quite such a little boy now though.

Mia brushed her fingers a little against Draco's forehead.

"Need some help getting him to the bed?" Luna asks.

Mia blushes a little, but doesn't ask if Luna knows. She just answers with a nod and the two women, with the help of a little magic, move Draco into Mia's bed.

Once there, Mia takes her side of the bed and Luna sings the lullaby again.

Late into the night, though, Mia nearly shakes awake, her mind going back to those lonely nights when she would dream Draco was with her.

The tears are starting to come.

Draco felt the tears in his sleep, and murmured under his breath. Shifting a little, and snuggling closer against Mia.

She clings to him, as she often did when he was gone.

"Draco," her voice chokes out in her sleep.

A murmur back of concern, "Mia?" Embracing her back as he went deeper into sleep and dreams again.

She presses herself against his chest.

"Please be here when I wake up."

She saw his side of the bed empty one too many times during the war.
