Elliot smiled in return and closed the door behind them. “Fine, fine. Get comfortable in bed first.” He told her, crossing his arms and sitting in a nearby chair after releasing her hand.
She blinked at him then smiled, “okay, okay. You’re being polite too…at the moment.” She muttered to herself with a little giggle. then Red happily climbed into her bed and got all comfy like she was before she even woke up today.
"It’s really… nothing, Clara. I’ll do anything for you." Gilbert’s expression softened at her words, and he exhaled slowly. "Do you want me to stay with you for the rest of the night?" He asked, looking up at her hesitantly, guilt staining his eyes. It was getting harder to hide what he was feeling from her. Much harder.
Clara nodded her head, “if it won’t be a problem…and I’m sure that Oz would be alright with it too…” She added to the sentence then she looked into his eyes and saw the guilt. After he finished wrapping up her legs she quickly hugged him, “please….Gilbert, don’t feel guilty. It wasn’t your fault. It was mine, I let my guard down…please don’t feel the guilt and sadness I should.”
"Thanks!" He chimed, trying to rid her of the serious atmosphere. Soon, the door opened and a nurse stood in the entrance. Without hesitation, they took her from his arms and began to aide her. Then, Gilbert joined them in no time. "I’ll take care of the rest." He told the women, taking the medical tape from their grasps and going over to Clara. It was once they were completely alone that he began to hesitantly, but silently, wrap her legs.
Clara stayed silent at first, the mood for her didn’t seem to change. She was still scared, “Gil…” the blond started off with as she tried to remain very still. Since her legs still hurt, it wasn’t that difficult. “You’re so over protective of me…” she continued quietly even though they were alone. “You would’ve killed him without any regret or hesitation…I’m still scared of him.” Her grip on the table she sat on got stronger, “thank you…for everything.”
The white haired man simply blinked at her, then smiled lightly. “He killed a couple of our men with his utensils during dinner, and broke free from our guard during the confusion.” Break stated, not hiding any details from her for her own sake. “This time. We’ll have either Gilbert-kun or I looking after him. That way, if he get’s away, we can end him on the spot.” He explained briefly before stopping in front of another door. “Could you knock for me~?”
She was a little shocked about hearing what the man did in order to try to murder her. He did all of that…to end me? Clara nodded her head then hesitantly knocked on the door for him. For some reason, she felt more scared then before.

"I sure am." He responded quickly and smiled at her. "Just you wait. I’m getting impatient." Elliot stated, smile changing to a smirk. Once they were there, the noble forced the door open and pulled her inside.
Red smiled, “you’re always impatient!” She pointed out before being pulled into the room. “Easy there Elliot! You said I needed rest not fun!” She reminded him with a little pout.
Break tilted his head to the side, “I don’t know. Will you give me candy afterwards?” He asked, snickering at her. Then, he received a small glare from Gilbert and sighed. “Alright, alright. Jeez, what a kill joy.” He complained then picked her up bridal style. “We’ll get you to a medical room. Though, I doubt Gilly’s going to let you out of his sight for awhile.” He added the last part quietly, then walked towards the door. The clown was almost certain it was open, still making sure it was before taking a step through.
Clara watched Gilbert in the background as Break walked out of the room with her. Then she received a bad feeling as she looked down at the assassin, it was like he was saying that he wasn’t done with what he had to do. That scared her, “I wanted to see Gilbert anyway…” She murmured to Break then looked away from the assassin’s point of view. The blond tightened her grip on Break for a moment, “Break….how did he get out?”
Elliot scoffed playfully, then bent down to kiss her again. “I guess it’ll be my job to keep you busy then.” He smirked, then took her hand to lead her down the hall again but slowly. “It’s already night time. You slept through last night and all day today. It made me worried that you would sleep for a month again.”
"I slept for that long?" She asked both Elliot and herself. "And don’t worry about that, I don’t think I’ll sleep for a whole month like that ever again!" Red stated with a bright smile. "But putting that aside for now, you’re going to keep me from being bored?"
The man’s eyes widen and he makes a run for it. That didn’t work out so well, considering the Gilbert broke down the door and swiftly caught up to the man, forcing him to the floor by the hair. “Sorry we’re late.” He apologized quickly, voice husky from the pure hatred he felt for the guy he was pinning to the ground.
Oz and Break came into the room as well; the blond went to Alice and the other went to Clara to help her with her bindings. “Gilbert~ Don’t kill him now. We need him for questioning later.” Break told him without even batting an eye at them. “Are you alright, Clara bunny?” He asked right afterwards, “I can’t see if you have any wounds.” He reminded her in a whisper.
"I’m a bit cut up and bruised, he pulled my hair a few times and went for my legs a moment ago…" Clara explained before looking over at Oz and Alice. She was glad that Alice was alright though, then she looked over at Gilbert and the assassin.
Once Break untied her she remained sitting though, her legs still hurt. “That bastard…I may not be able to stand up properly for a while without falling over.” She explained to him in more of a whisper so that way Gilbert or Oz wouldn’t hear her. “So, Break can you just…help me stand for now?”
Elliot smirked, “Are you bored now?” He asked, kissing her again but for a longer period of time. “I hope so. It’s been awhile since we’ve had some time to ourselves.”
"Just a little bored…" She said both honestly and for fun. "Then again, I’m supposed to be bored, remember? It was ‘Duke’s Orders’ and ‘Fiancés Wishes’ for me to stay in bed and be bored." Red decided to point out to Elliot.
On another note, though, how did you think Elliot heard of all of these “infamous tales” about Break and Reim? I imagine that before the rift between him and Gil, lil Elliot at the kitchen table after Gil returned from Pandora during the evening, clinging to his older adopted brother’s every word about his day (whether Gil was venting or otherwise.)
