: heading home/ At Miranda’s home.Interacting with
: Declan @infamous Auror
Once Declan had sat down with Miranda, she took a couple of sips from her drink, head titled to the side slightly, watching him with her soft gaze as he was hunched over after having a bit of his own drink. It was clear as day that something was really on top of him this time round, she noticed the burns earlier when he came in and so knew this was not one of your typical shit days a normal person might have from a non-paranormal life, after a moment of silence between the two he finally began to speak.
He stops as quick as he started, at the name Jenna, Miranda only heard of that conversation with his girlfriend… Were they even still together now, Miranda didn’t to mention it right now while he was explaining it, but from what he was saying to whatever he was being told, it didn’t take a private investigator to know that it sounded like Jenna was playing away, heartless bitch. Soon he began starting off with explaining that they both know of what he is and that he had no choice as he showed her his burnt hand, looking not so burnt anymore, he was healing nicely, In the moment his hand was held out to her she shuffled over a little to look at it better, she hesitated in taking her hand into his and holding for fear it would irritate what was left of the burns despite wanting to reassure him.
He then went on to explain how the situation had come about and what lead to him having no choice but to tell them, Gwen she felt could keep a secret, she was like herself in a way speaking their minds but were loyal to those closest to them, Fin, Miranda was not sure about, they didn’t get on or probably trust on another, so Miranda really wouldn’t know how the other would have taken hit but did expect as possible freak out from the pair.
He was trying to save Gwen from the mine with Fin, made sense really... he was close to both and Dec was the kind of guy that would go to help others at his own expense, it made her heart ache a little, he knows he couldn’t go in there but did anyway, it was what made him so amazing and unique and in a way thankful that Finley was with him at the time to help. It also sounded right that Gwen would grill him with a lot of questions… So the pair didn’t bolt and leave which was something and was even wanting to take him to the hospital, which probably not been a good idea.
But then he growled at the mention of Gwen, it did give pause for thought as it was his wolf side that was letting this growl out, he needed to calm down as she didn’t not want him to run away, not like this. He then dropped the bombshell that even caught Miranda by surprise, Gwen or Jenna, which ever name some had come to know or call her by, was quite the looker in Miranda’s eyes, had actually asked if Dec was responsible for the death of the mayor and even if a valid question possibly from someone else that didn’t know him, personally she should’ve know Declan better than that and wondered why she would ask him. Did she generally think he was capable of such a thing? or simply trying to remove him out as a possible suspect?
When he fell silent and short of his sentence, Miri knew that what Gwen did had really hurt him and hit close to home and it did totally suck seeing him like this but Miranda knew him better than anyone, they grew up together and always had each other’s back and total trust. There was no way Declan would have murdered someone, he was in control, if he wasn’t she would’ve been on menu long ago and being what he is, he was still that kind, loving Declan that put others before himself, he was still the same guy inside.
Placing her drink on the table in front of herself, Miranda placed one arms around Declan, pulling him closer to herself as she placed the other hand on top his own that was still holding the drink she gave him earlier. She looked at him carefully as if trying to read his thoughts, which of course she couldn’t. Right now priority was being there for Declan, then at some time she would go and have a ‘word’ with Gwen herself. “Dec…. It’s Gwen we are talking about; it was probably her way of removing you as a suspect.”
She began softly. “But to be honest she should you better than that; And I myself do not believe for one second that you could do that to anyone, you may be a werewolf Dec, but that doesn't mean you are some mindless animal
Miranda then placed a hand on his chest roughly where his heart is “You have a kind loving heart Declan and nothing will ever change that, all this has not changed the person that you are and it shows because you are hurting over what Gwen said… Look I will go and have a talk with Gwen when I get a chance to see her. She cares, so don’t give up on her yet okay, just give her some time and she’ll come round.”
Sure Miri was fuming at the accusation but going out there now and angered won’t solve nothing, god it wasn’t fun to be stuck between two people that you really like, after a moment she removed her hand, grabbing her bottle of cider.
