Summary: Roger comes in for a check-up
When Roger Davies had turned up in her ward at St. Mungo's soon after Remus and Hestia had left his flat(Hestia refused to think of it as a crime scene), his injuries were much worse than Hestia had thought they would be. She'd stunned him, and she knew that the spell had hit him square in the chest, but she'd never counted on him collapsing into his coffee table. The table was ruined by Roger's fall, but she simply hadn't had the time to check his wounds before she and Remus fled Roger's flat with the recovered journal. It was probably for the best, it would have been off for intruders to heal their victim.
She couldn't find a way around calling Roger a victim, and that frustrated Hestia. It had been over two weeks since the break-in, but Hestia was still mulling over what she and Remus had done. It wasn't right that Roger had gotten mixed up in the Order's mess, he was an innocent bystander, and none of this would have happened if the twins had been responsible with the journal in the first place. That, at least, was what Hestia told herself to lessen the guilt. She had to convince herself of her own innocence if she wanted to convince anybody else of it, after all, and that was necessary. Judging by her schedule for the day, Hestia was due to run Mr. Davies' check-up examination for the injuries he'd sustained during the altercation. She steeled her face before entering the examination room where he was waiting.
