They pulled up into the neighborhood like last time, parking the car a short ways down from Paige's house. Like before, Cheryl carefully looked out at the residence, watching for lit rooms or movement inside - or movement outside. Jarl could waltz right out, but she had to be stealthy.

She wondered how Paige was coming along, if she was doing better, and how much longer she had to heal her injuries. At least two weeks most likely, but probably a little longer, especially if the detective did something reckless to aggravate them.

Have you called her recently? He smiles softly and now, out of the sight of those who might see, reaches across to touch your hand gently, fingers seeking to twine with yours.

"No...I think I could by now, right?" she mused, sliding her hand into his and squeezing gently. How funny she must seem, the one who had just berated and lectured the foolishness of Kindred much more experienced than her, now fussing over little social niceties of calling a new friend/acquaintance. "Yeah, it's been about a week, and anyway I have to ask her how the cookies were. I'll do that...tomorrow evening. It'll be late by the time we get home."

Cheryl blew of puff of air from her lips, moving a lock of hair that fell right back to her cheek afterward. She shifted her head against the seat rest, glancing at Jarl with a helpless half-pout to convey that she knew she was silly but couldn't help herself. "All right, shall we?"

Everything seemed quiet when they got out of the car. Cheryl let out her call to attract their little scouts, meandering around the car in the meantime to find Jarl's hand again with hers. Maybe she should focus more on focusing before letting her mind wander from the task at hand...

He chuckles and reaches up with his other hand to brush your cheek before you both get out of the car. A lack of focus perhaps, only a single cat comes to your call this time, looking up eagerly for treats. Treats, food, fish?

'Indeed, treats,' Cheryl affirmed, retrieving some from the container and kneeling to give them to the eager visitor while looking around for any others. "You want to try calling, see if anymore of them come over?" she asked Jarl. Cheryl gave the cat a chance to peacefully finish off her fish-flavored goodies and started on a nice petting once she was done. 'The house here been quiet the last few days? No visitors at night?'

No visitor, but bad nights, dark night. Good treats, good lady. Jarl nods and moves off a bit, you can feel the soft call tugging at you slightly as he too calls out. Two more show up when he does, and there is a soft murmur of sound as he speaks to them as well.

'Why bad? What happened?' Cheryl frowned, her attention now focused more fully on the feline. Possibilities already started running through her mind, but she forced herself not to speculate yet.

Dark things in night, good night to stay inside, tonight is good, treats are good. Jarl makes a small noise and looks up at you, shaking his head slightly and mouthing softly. Something was here yesterday

Perfect. Cheryl nodded to Jarl, her mouth set in a grim line, before she turned back to her own neighborhood consultant. 'What did the dark things do? They come to this house? Were they here for long time?

Dark came, stayed inside, is best to stay inside when dark comes. He does not seem concerned and continues to nibble. Jarl however picks up one of his cats and starts to walk toward Paige's house, without consulting you, for whatever his plan is.

Jarl seemed to be having more luck than her, at least. How did he get so good at getting cats to talk sense? And when would she learn to do that? 'But dark not here now. Can you tell where it would have been last night? Maybe smell it still?' She somehow felt like she was grasping at straws with these questions. While she still listened for the cat's answer, her eyes followed Jarl to see what he had planned.

Was here, bad things like you but not, stayed inside. He purrs a bit and looks for more treats, Jarl however is walking right up to Paige's front door and rings the doorbell, at this ungodly hour, cat in his arms, and well... what the hell was he doing?

Kindred. Of all the culdesacs in all the suburbs in all the world...maybe they'd get lucky. Ish. Lucky-ish. Maybe it was just a Nossie snooping for info or a Toreador coming home with a new beau or belle.

Then Jarl rang the doorbell. Cheryl seized up in panic, her eyes growing wide and her muscles tightening in preparation to leap behind the car before Paige answered the door. Scrambling into her hiding space, she mentally cursed Jarl for not at least giving her a warning! Once situated and perfectly silent, she peeked around the trunk where the darkness would hide her half-face and watched the proceedings.

He seems to be ringing the doorbell again, then does something with the handle, you are pretty sure he is letting himself into the house on his own as no lights come on, and then he is gone inside. Some serious talking to later when he comes out, oh yes... that boy.

The situation was deteriorating rapidly. Cheryl crouched there, teeth bared and tight hands held up in a silent attempt to will Jarl into sensing the disapproval that she dare not voice, but alas, she wasn't psychic.

As he disappeared into the house, however, her thoughts expanded from the simple possibility that Paige would wake and find an intruder. What if Paige was out? What if she wasn't supposed to be out and didn't leave on her own? Jarl's fussing with the door meant that it had probably been locked, so wherever Paige was, she likely hadn't been forced out of her home. What was he looking for?

This was a terrible, stupid idea. Cheryl leaned forward in a motion to stand only to hesitate and hold herself back, repeating this a couple times before she finally emerged from her hiding spot with an exasperated, nervous sigh. Her eyes roved the neighborhood as she sneaked up to the house, as though Paige might jump out from behind any given trash bin and find her there. She paused at the door, leaning in enough to hear any sounds in the dark house, faintly illuminating the interior with red eyes and seeing more than the glow itself revealed.

"Jarl?" she called in a half-whisper. The silence and stillness in the house was enough to carry her voice a fair distance, and she couldn't risk being any louder. If Paige really was here and asleep, then shouting was the last thing they wanted to do.

The house seems strangely empty, a small chill running down your spine, that whisper that something is not right, but then you are already upset, are you imagining things. A slight creak, Jarl is upstairs it seems, and as the sounds echo around you, fading away and leaving you alone again. And then, just as suddenly, his voice, soft from the stairs. Cheryl... she's hurt, I want... I want your permission, I can save her, but it means we are going to end up binding her to us...

The chill that ran down her spine would have raised fur if she had any, but what Jarl said caused a reaction even more peculiar. Strange that someone who didn't generate heat to begin with could feel terrifyingly like her blood froze to ice in her veins, just for a moment.

Cheryl wasn't sure what really terrified her most. It could have been the realization that Paige was hurt and may have died had they not investigated, or it could have been the affirmation that her paranoia of being followed and being in danger was not unjustified, or it could have been the decision suddenly placed in her hands to either let Paige become a ghoul or let her die.

Why did Jarl have to ask for her permission? How could she let someone die just because the alternative made her uncomfortable? She wasn't qualified to decide for someone else whether they lived or died...but making Paige a ghoul took away her decision as well. She wouldn't want to decide for herself after that.

Cheryl rushed to where Jarl's voice was coming from and then froze, squeezing her eyes shut before slowly opening them to see the damage. "We - we can't call an ambulance?"

It would be a breach Cheryl, it isn't... pretty. I can clean up the breach as it is and let it be found, or we can save her, but... His voice trails off, he knows you are young, he knows this is huge as well, a choice, what choice will it be and how can you make it. His eyes flare to light in the dark, two glowing red orbs watching you, lost in glow is any sort of emotion, but you can still hear it there in his voice, asking you, unsure of what you want.

A breach. That would make things all the worse for Paige, because then she'd have the Sheriff on her back as well. It would be a miserable situation to put her in, not to mention that the time Paige would spend waiting before receiving treatment could mean that the hospital might not save all of her.

Cheryl buried her face in her hands, raking her fingers through her hair as she frantically tried to find a way out of this. The more she thought about it, though, the more it seemed like...this really was Paige's best option. Attacked, hurt, alone, far from any other source of aid...showers of glass and burning rubber...this was how Cheryl had been saved...

No. She had been Embraced. For her, that was the only viable option in a moment when her life was about to slip away, but ghouling was temporary. Paige could be healed now, more quickly and probably better than doctors would manage, and the Vitae would eventually fade. But if she died, there was no reversing that.

"I'll..." Cheryl's voice broke, faltering, and she took a deep breath with eyes shut in resignation. "I'll do it."

She trusted Jarl with her life, but she was making this her obligation. She wanted to make sure that this went well, that Paige was cared for and not taken advantage of and that she was given the chance to reclaim her freedom rather than being kept a ghoul. Cheryl was the one putting Paige in this position, making this decision for her, and she had to be accountable for getting Paige out of it again. The only reliable way to do that was to make herself the one responsible. She didn't want to put the detective's fate in anyone else's hands.

"It's best for her right? She'll heal well, and she won't be hounded by the police for something she can't explain or the Sheriff for having the attention of the police. She'll even be a little stronger, right? She'll get some of my Fortitude and be able to handle herself better if this happens again..." Cheryl covered her eyes with her hand, slowly shaking her head. "We can't just let her die. I won't just let her die like this when I can do something."

Cheryl. He steps forward, off the stairs and reaches for you, pulling you into an embrace. You don't have to, she will know that something has happened, I am not a horrible man to dominate her, heal her yes, if she asks too much, bind her to me, but never slave like some... You don't have to see her like this.

Worry is there but even then, he seems to know you have made up your mind, a soft kiss on your forehead as he turns to the stairs to motion you up them if you are ready. Yes, she would know, knowledge is death so often, the blood could pass through her, but then could it ever, if she knew what you were, the masquerade, the law, was this where it came to?

Cheryl hugged Jarl close, curling into him as though she might find a way to hide from this whole thing. He could do this himself. She knew that he wasn't horrible...but she knew that she would regret it later if she let someone else have control over Paige. Once those reins were passed, there was no fighting against it if anything went wrong.

"She'll know either way. Things will...change for her, right? Me and her getting along like we were isn't important. I want to make sure for myself that this doesn't end badly for her." If she died, then they couldn't be friends anyway. If their acquaintanceship shifted because of this, then at least their relationship was one that Cheryl had a say in, unlike if Paige ended up addicted to someone else.

She stayed still on the stairs for a moment longer before following Jarl up. It wasn't the blood and gore making her hesitate; she'd been plenty bloody herself a few times. In fact, seeing what state Paige was in would probably just make Cheryl hurry to fix her up.

He slips his hand into yours and leads you into the bedroom, the scent of blood hits you, knowing that there is blood here, and it is Paige's... He moves to turn on a small lamp, only then releasing your hand to kneel beside the bed, pulling the sheet there back slightly. Paige looks to be unconscious, and if not for his words that she was still alive, you might have doubted it. There are unhealed bite marks all over her arms and chest, her face a mass of bruises and blood too. Sabbat, had to be Sabbat to do such a thing and just leave her there, an obvious breach, a mess, to slowly die most assuradely from the injuries and blood loss. He looks up at you, his eyes fading back to normal, the glow gone and nods softly. Have you ever done this Cheryl? You will need to coach her to heal herself as you feed her the vitae, she will start to rouse, instinct will heal some things until she is concious, and the taste, she will want more, you must not drain yourself...

Oh god. Cheryl felt a knot of panic briefly flare in her stomach. Had they made her suffer until she passed out? Why did they wait so long to come after her?

Jarl spoke and started instructing her. She looked at him and then nodded, approaching the bedside shakily. She felt so clumsy. "O-Okay." Bite the wrist, right? That was how she heard it was done. Cheryl brought her wrist to her mouth, glancing at Jarl for any sign that she was going about this wrong, and slid out her fangs to slit an easy line across her vein. She winced and jumped at the shock of pain, then stared for a moment at the line as though to make sure it was proper.

Her blood started pooling up through the gash and she jumped again, hastening to tilt Paige's head back and open her mouth before gingerly placing the opened wrist over it. "Um, w-what do I say? How much should I give her?"

Just let her drink, at first it will pour in and her body will start to use it, when she starts to move, speak soft, soothing, tell her to feel the warmth, guide it to all the parts that hurt, soft and soothing, see, she is starting to rouse. He smiles encouragingly as he watches both her face and yours. Paige moans softly and you feel her lips move to your wrist now as the vitae trickles down, her tongue reaching for the taste, unthinking, though her eyes are still closed, still so swollen.

Cheryl again nodded silently with mixed feelings over Jarl's smile. On one hand, it reassured her that she wasn't screwing up horribly. On the other hand, it made her a little sick to her stomach to think of smiling at all right now. That discomfort wasn't helped by the sensation of her wrist and blood being licked.

She shook it off and concentrated, gently putting her other hand on Paige's shoulder and leaning down to speak more softly. "Paige?" she asked, repeating the question a couple times and brushing her thumb back and forth on the woman's shoulder until she received a hint of conscious response.

"Paige...listen to me. Listen. Try to drink." God, that felt wrong to say. "Your throat is warm. Focus on that. Feel the warmth and try to move it. Move the warmth to where you hurt and let it soothe you. It will help." This wasn't right. They should have tried another option. There should have been another option. They should have tried harder to think of one.

But it wouldn't help to think of that now. Now Cheryl had started this process, and she had to worry about getting Paige healed properly before anything else.
