Re: Jamie and Scorpius
Scorpius opened his eyes and gave Jamie a genuine smile. "I don't think I'm doing a good enough job anyway. I guess it doesn't matter, because I won't be an actor now, not when I look like this." Not that anyone knew what he'd end up looking like. His entire body seemed to be covered by gauze at the moment.
"You okay? How's everyone else?" he asked. "I know my Dad is okay, and my grandfather-" They were talking about unknown poison, death, lack of cure. He closed his eyes, trying not to cry.
"What happened to me? I remember the fire and then nothing. I must have passed out from the pain." It was probably a blessing, all things considered. "How pissed are people with me? Getting close and spooking those birds? I had no idea."
