Regulus - 3, Marlene - 1
Only have arrived a handful of minutes before the chaos ensued, Marlene was closer to the exit than most. She was never on time for anything and was hoping to make up for the lost time, when she heard screams and the screeching sound of birds. Instinctively she began to run towards the sounds of Scorpius cries, when she saw Regulus cast his blasting hex. She stopped dead in her tracks, slipped and fell. Not feeling any worse for the wear, she noted the slightly grazed skin on her leg and knew she would be well bruised up and sore tomorrow. For now she could stand and hold her ground and she quickly got to her feet.
Reaching for her wand she sent a hex toward a bird circling overhead, when she saw Regulus fall. Making her way toward him, she cast a protective barrier as he drew closer.
Leaving had been the furthest thought from her mind as she heard the cries, screams, and shrieking birds. She quickly panned around looking for Lily, but in the commotion and debris she couldn't see her. She knew the right thing to do would be to head to the infirmary to tend to the injured, who would make their way there, but it didn't make the choice any easier.
It was when Regulus spoke that she knew she had to concede. "Alright, Black," she said reaching out to grab his arm. He was in much rougher shape than herself. "Let's go."
