Status: Open to anyone at the Graveyard on Shift
A pleasant ache spread through Cassius' body as he slipped into bed. He was definitely going to have some bruises in the morning, but he was okay with that. It was the beauty of a good brawl, he'd always enjoyed the pain that came with a good beating. Even when he held his own or one, he was always left with enough aches and bruises to appease him and tonight's fight had been no different. Maybe it wasn't the healthiest way to work out his issues, but it worked for him, so he was probably going to keep doing it.
It seemed like he had just drifted off when Cassius had the distinct feeling of falling followed by a tangling of limbs and the jarring pain of hitting the ground hard. "What the fuck?" His eyes popped open and the first thing he noticed was that he was actually lying on the ground. It was fucking cold, it was hard and there was a petite brunette right on top of him.
Well, okay, maybe that last part wasn't so bad. Or it wouldn't be if he wasn't lying on a pile of snow, freezing his arse off in only his boxers in the middle of a blood graveyard.
The Magpies had just won another great game and Alicia had gone out with her teammates, it was awesome! It was brilliant, and she was really sleepy by the time she got home and crashed into her bed after stripping down to her knickers and sports bra. Curling up she called the three dogs to join her on her bed. It was surprising how quickly she fell asleep, she clearly needed it.
Her dreams had been pretty normal that was until she got a strange feeling and felt herself slowly starting to wake up, but it wasn’t her bed and she was on top of someone, someone with good abs, strong… no she hadn’t gone to bed with anyone, there were dogs on her bed, but no people. Not a single person was on her bed…. But this wasn’t her bed, it was cold, and she was nearly naked without any covers or anything.
She put her hand on whomever it was chest and pushed herself off, trying to stand she slipped on the ice and landed right back where she is. “Sorry.” She muttered knowing it probably didn’t feel great. Alicia wasn’t a very big person, but still it couldn’t feel good to have someone drop on top of them. “What the fuck is going on?” She finally said as the shock of realising this wasn’t a dream set in.
Cassius didn't mind having her on top of him, actually. This was the closest he'd ever really gotten to Alicia Spinnet and he might not be willing to admit it out loud, but he thought she was gorgeous. Having her half-naked body pressed to him was hardly a hardship.
"Oh, don't apologize," he muttered as she tried to stand and fell back on top of him. This could very well be a pleasant dream if he wasn't lying on top of the very cold ground of wherever they were, but he couldn't help thinking that a little discomfort was worth it for the feel of her slight body against his.
It was a struggle to drag his thoughts away from how good she looked or how little they were both wearing, but Cassius managed it somehow. "Not sure,"he admitted. "I was asleep and then I woke up here. You don't think this is one of those really bizarre dreams, do you?" Probably not. It was a little too vivid for that. Besides, he'd had a few dreams about Alicia in their younger days and if this as a dream, they would be doing a lot less talking right now.
Great, this was just really great. She didn’t actually move off him yet as she lifted her head and looked around where they were. They were in a graveyard, a freaking fall apart rather creepy looking graveyard. How had that happened? This was all really way too insane to be some sort of dream, dreams like this didn’t happen. Warrington? Shit. He wasn’t someone she would pick to spend time with normally anyways. She’d had one or two dreams with Cassius in them when they were younger but they were either really violent or really insane and she wasn’t going to think about that.
Rolling off of him finally she managed to sit up although was regretting it the moment she had. “Shit it’s cold.” Alicia cursed as she decided she should try standing up again as she wrapped her arms around her and managed to actually stand up safely as her teeth started to chatter a little bit.
“No Warrington I don’t think this is a dream, besides why would either of us dream of waking up in a freaking graveyard.” She left out the half naked thing. “Unless you make really fucked up wishes.”
Yeah, Cassius wasn’t fond about being here in a graveyard wearing next to nothing when it was bloody cold out. He followed her into a standing position and that didn’t really help. They said hot air rose, but he wasn’t so sure right now.
Cassius ignored her comment about his fucked up wishes, except for shaking his head, but he was actually concerned at her chattering teeth. “We should get you someplace warm,” he said, not really thinking as he started to rub her arms with his hands in an attempt to warm her. They could use magic to build a fire if he either of them even had their wands, which would help if they were going to stay here, but it was probably better to get out of here.
“C’mon,” he said, nudging her lightly and nodding toward what looked like an exit. “You don’t have your wand on you, do you?” His was at home, next to his bed, just as it always was. He was kind of irritated about that, actually. Getting carted off without a wand basically left him relying on his wits and his fists.
Her feet were freezing, okay she was completely freezing and felt like she was going to turn into a Alicicile. She flinched slightly when she felt his hands on her arms, she felt like she should pull away but his hands felt a lot warmer than anything else and well, she was never going to admit it but she was slightly grateful for that moment of warmth from him. She tried to calm her teeth but it was really hard for her to get that going.
“Yes Warrington, I hide my wand in my sports bra when I’m sleeping.” She responded with an annoyed glare at him. It wasn’t really that she was annoyed with him, but it was that she didn’t have her wand either, which basically made life suck if you asked her. They needed their wands and while she was sure they both could do some wandless magic (basic stuff), a wand made life easier and they needed to really focus for wandless magic.
“I can’t believe I’m going to suggest this but come here.” She said as her survival instincts kicked in. She let her arms free from hugging herself and moved so she could wrap one arm around him. “Body heat, we might get Hypothermia otherwise.” Alicia felt like this had to be a fucked up dream or something, but she knew she’d probably catch it and he was the only thing she could see at that moment that would be worthwhile and useful in this situation.
“Wishful thinking,” he muttered, rolling his eyes at the glare. Really, did she have to be like that? He was trying to be helpful. He knew she couldn’t stand them. Hell, he couldn’t stand her half the time, either, but he was trying to put that aside so they could get out of this situation and if one of them had their wand, that would have been really helpful. There was always wandless, but Cassius wasn’t great at magic without his wand and it would be hard to focus in this cold.
“Geez, Spinnet, if you wanted to cuddle, you could have just said so,” he joked, slipping an arm around her and pulling her closer to him. Body heat, right, this was all about survival, but he couldn’t help injecting a little bit of smart ass into the situation, if only so he didn’t have to think about how he actually didn’t hate the excuse to be close to her.
It sort of hurt as she walked every single step hurt on her bare feet and she really wished she had her wand and could first off heat them up and second get something on her feet. She needed something on her feet badly. It hurt and it was cold and she was pretty sure they’d both have cuts on their feet from this whole walking on snow and ice like this.
Alicia hit his abs lightly (very lightly for her… she could hit hard but she was cold and she didn’t want to hurt him in this case). “So you did cause this so you could get close to me? Is that it?” She snapped right back even though she’d been the one to suggest that they get close and use body heat. “Where the bloody hell are we, and if you say a cemetery I will actually hit you.”
“Believe it or not, Spinnet, I really don’t have to go to these kinds of pains to get a girl,” he returned. This wasn’t his ideal situation at all. It was freezing and the ground was hurting his feet and he was stuck in a graveyard in the middle of who the hell knows where.
“How the bloody hell should I know?” he snapped. Obviously, they were in a graveyard, but whatever else he hadn’t a bloody clue. They weren’t going to figure it out by standing here and snapping at one another. “Let’s just get out of here, there’s got to be somewhere we can get some answers.”
Shrugging she actually managed not to ask him if he was sure, and he wasn’t getting her, they were just stuck in this situation but he wasn’t going to win her over, they were stuck with the whole freezing thing and bod yheat was important. That was it. He was not going to get her with abs of steel or anything like that.
She rolled her eyes but pulled herself a little closer to him with one hand as she looked around. “Yeah, go that way?” She pointed with her free hand but quickly put her hand back sort of around him, walking might be awkward like this but it was at least a little bit warmer.
