He tries to get his bearings, dark eyes blinking before he’s suddenly moving. He has no energy left to fight the way she moves his wings in around him, the way she wraps the remains of his shirt around his small body, but he does have enough to leave room for one bat claw to stick up from each arm over the fabric as she cradles him.

A tongue darts out as he listens to her offer for drinks, abso-fucking-lutely taking her up on that. But he listens, half wanting to tell her that Remi is his boss now, but unable to. All he can do is watch her with his dark gaze as they walk, the claws atop the fabric tapping lightly as if to ask her to continue, to learn more about Northaven where he can. All he had were what Remi, Ronin, Phoebe, and Loren have mentioned, and much of it seemed biased as the rest. But he didn’t know Vai, didn’t know a thing about who she was or where she fit in when it came to that other world, and it keeps his attention.

Stealing a glance down at him, Vai couldn't not smirk at the dark eyed bat watching her, a far cry from the man she'd shot in the fucking neck but let's not think about that now. "He was lost in the woods, the first time I came across him," she explained about Remi. "Different man to the one you probably know. Though I don't know how you know him, obviously."

The jungle thinned out to the coastline, and Vai shifted her bow on her shoulder while being careful not to jostle the Attuned in her arms. "Not long now," she said. "Do you have someone to keep an eye on you, when we get there? You can just... blink, or whatever." She grinned.

Regardless of his answer, it wasn't too long before the lighthouse peeped up over the horizon. Vai moved swiftly past it, towards the governor's house and the other homes clustered around it. "Which one do you live in...?" she wondered.

He has seen Remi shift a few times — from the first time he’d met the Alchemist when he dumped a blight stricken Phoebe on his doorstep, when he’d met Oliver for the first time with the other man, when Remi had inadvertently been that stepping stone Sunjata needed to attune — however impulsive it might have been.

But he moves with her and blinks against the bright sunlight, the claw tapping against the fabric a bit more as his ears waver with the wind that blows through. Her question is met with a slow blink and a tap, even if he really didn’t want to show up that way, not after their recent conversation. But what else could the attuned do?

He spies the lighthouse, and with it the edge of his home next to Remi and Ronin’s, and he fidgets a small amount in her arms to poke a wing out to point toward his home — the one with wisteria draped all out front, through the garden and encroaching on the wrap around porch. Home, with only a fence between his and The Governor’s home.

Vai followed the wing, tilting her head and having to double check that he was serious. "You live that close?" she said, a small laugh tumbling out of her. "Surprised I didn't meet you the first time I came up to visit." Still, at least it meant she knew where to go, Vai stepping in through the garden and running a finger through some of the wisteria, heading for the door.

"Well, thank you for suffering my carrying you up here like a child. You should be alright, just get plenty of rest and keep your fluids up - not booze, obviously." Smiling, she reached out to knock at the front door, waiting expectantly for an answer or for Sunjata to tell her she could just walk in.

In Nate’s admittedly biased experience, knocks at the door never meant anything good. Here though, the sound out him especially on edge. Anybody he wanted around knew to just come right in, and he wasn’t exactly in the mood to deal with anyone else. There was a part of him that thought about not opening the door at all.

Thank god he was more curious than anything else.

Stranger, blood, bat... Jata. The only four thoughts that had a chance to register in Nate’s mind before he was reaching out to lift the bat and bloody shirt away from the woman, stepping deeper into the house. ”What happened?” He asked in a sharp, clipped tone, the only invitation she’d receive to follow him inside.

Theres a brief detour to grab a first aid kit from the kitchen, and then the bat was deposited, gently, on a sofa, Nate kneeling beside it. ”Kan jy omdraai?” He asked softly, giving what he was assuming was Sunjata a chance to respond and turning back to the woman, if she had chosen to follow.

He does live this close to Remi, but at least she has an idea of where to go now. As for the alcohol? Well, he’s sure Nate will have a few things to say about it. And speaking of? A considerable amount of more ‘fuck, fuck, fuck’s slip into his mind of how this looks and what happened and their prior conversation going over exactly fucking this.

But Nate answers, and Sunjata’s stomach drops, the clipped tone he knows all too well. But he’s handed off into the arms of the Ascended briefly before being set on a couch, shifting back into himself now — shirtless because his shirt had been used as a patch and a bandage — his body still marred with blood. “Yeah.” He manages, the tang of iron still on his tongue.

So he turns, to give Nate the view of the wound once the Ascended removes the makeshift patch. “Shot with an arrow.” He offers, the best he can, dizziness taking over once more with his exertion, sure that Vai could answer it more in depth as he shuts his eyes tight.

Okay, cool, yeah. Vai didn't really get a chance to consider a greeting, or a summary of what had happened, an apology, or whatever else might have seemed polite, before the man-turned-bat was taken from her arms and an aloof stranger was carrying him off further into the house. She followed, only because she hadn't actually answered the question yet, but by the time she arrived and Sunjata was in his original form again, the situation was already pretty apparent - even if Vai only understood half the conversation.

"What he said. Hunting accident," she explained. "I took care of the injury as best I could. It should just need cleaning and bandaging properly now. He's lost blood, though, so no cartwheels for a while. I'll... leave you to it." Providing they didn't have any further questions for her, she'd see herself out so they could continue their discussion in private.

Arrow in the neck and hunting accident both painted a very specific image, sent sharp blue eyes towards the stranger, anger only barely simmering below the surface. "No, hold on." He doesn't rise, doesn't actually move to stop her, hoping the tone of his voice will do that job for him. "You don't get to come to my home, drop off my injured partner, and then leave, just like that." He had questions, or he would, once he was done confirming what she'd said, and patching Sunjata up.

Or, maybe the questions would come while he worked. They bubbled up quickly enough, mostly variations of what the fuck, but he manages to force something sensible out, while he's digging through the first aid kit he'd grabbed, cool hands gentle as a bandage, as pressure is applied to the wound in Sunjata's neck. "Who are you?" As good a start as any, he supposes, and a reason for her to stay where she is, instead of waiting, hovering awkwardly.

Vai follows in, and Sunjata offers what he can while his head spins with the dizziness of the shifting back and forth. But at least he’s settled, if not for the pang in his neck, refraining from reaching up to touch it. It helps that Nate doesn’t leave just yet, as he remains knelt beside the couch. Sunjata reaches out with his other hand, trying to grasp onto Nate, almost feeling the tangible frustration in the air.

And silently thinking more and more ‘I fucked up’ over and over again until it’s too late and all the damage has already been done when Nate’s speaking to Vai. And there’s really nothing more that Sunjata can do, other than lay there and be good for Nate while he works to patch up the hole in his neck, feeling the pressure of his hand despite its gentleness as its pressed to the wound.
