Location: O'Shea Manor
Rating: PG 13- R?
Warnings: Screaming, blood, panic, swearing?
Summary: Verity goes into labour unexpectedly.
She'd felt the panic first. The whole house was in uproar and no one would allow her to see Theo, not even (or more so, especially) Theo. Padma was dead, Nathaniel, her godson, was in bad condition. She didn't know what was going on specifically, just that it was Death Eaters and that her friend was dead and her Theo was nearly unresponsive.
Verity tried her hardest to do what she could to help and to keep Marlowe calm but even the boy could tell that there was something terribly wrong. That was when she started feeling new pain. Pain in her belly that was nearly crippling. The first time it took her breath away the second it pulled a strangled cry from her lips. She had to sit down. And then it was wet. She whimpered as she realised what was going on.
She wasn't entirely sure who it was, but someone had sent for Healer Mallard. They had tried to get her set up in Nott Manor but she refused. She'd just have to put off the labour. The contractions were far apart, she could do it. But as the evening wore on and Nathaniel was stabilized she took more time to examine herself. She wasn't going to be able to hold off much longer and the carriage ride was going to be too far. She had to leave, the children had to be born in O'Shea Manor to be under the blood protection.
Things moved quickly from there, or so it seemed to her. Before she knew it Ficus had come and collected Marlowe, apparated him to the Manor (she refused to leave him) and she was in the carriage with Healer Mallard. She just prayed that she could hold off as another whimper escaped her throat as new pain swept through her.
