Who: Alim and Morrigan. What: Trying to stop her being an emotional zombie. Or something very similar to that. Warnings: Probably not!
Morrigan could deny she had feelings all she wanted, but moments like this honestly proved otherwise. She'd left Alim in charge, with strict instructions not to tell Aedan where she'd gone, and come back like this.
To say it was mildly worrying would be an understatement. At least he could thank the Maker that she hadn't decided to almost get herself killed this time.
He sent Aedan out to practice his skills, preferably as far away from the cottage as possible, before steeling himself as best he could and knocking on Morrigan's door. "Any chance of you leaving that room anytime soon? You're managing to worry people."
