Blakely had figured Willow would pull the papers. How she didn't know but it had been a guess. So when all papers were pulled from the swirling storm.of objects she let it all go back to where it was. To be honest, the young woman would have thought it would still take longer. So it was a happy surprise when it hadn't.
Once the paper was had, both Severus and Blakely rejoined Willow and were at her sides. "Probably for the best." The man muttered, dark gaze becoming cast upon the two young women again.
[b "Nice job it finding it.. And I guess I should get back.."] She said quietly, trying to stop a yawn but couldn't. Even she knew how the other felt. This was the first being so drained since the War.
Sure, he'd love the test run back to when they were toddlers and the world was weary but peachy. Willow thought to herself yet was surprised that this had actually worked. Still they had a pile that was flowing around.
"Accio paper," she said pulling all the papers out before the old parchment was there in her hand. Scrunching to read it she nodded when it had the riddle on top.
"Got it...now...let's get the bloody hell to bed. I haven't been this tired since that night."
"But just to have thought of it..." Severus said quietly. But then he gave her a look when her mind began to wander. He wasn't sure whether it was because she was playing or if she was just that out of it. However for the moment the man decided to leave it alone. He merely followed the young woman and began to help searching the pile.
Blakely had been a bit lost until the sparks and the loudness. A smirk came to her lips she followed it. What REALLY got her attention was Willow's calling out to her. Blakely stuffed a piece of chocolate into her mouth and ran over to the others. She was really just using the sweets to stay up at this rate.
[b "That was clever on your part! And now lets make this easier."] She said and had her wand out, everything lifting and spiraling around them.
"I didn't do any of the work, I just pitched the idea. He still won't listen to most of the ideas. I mean...the super sticky gum has been in movies and cartoons for years, it should exist," Willow shrugged. There went the brightness into the very random aspect that would annoy him. Right now it was her focus just having a hard time staying where it should be.
"B! Over there!" She called, taking another drink to stay awake before starting over there. They would survive this, and maybe turn things around.
Being halfblood himself, Severus knew of muggle things such as fireworks. But he had not known there could be a magical use for them. So to hear her explanation, a small smile did come to his lips. She was clever and very talented for someone so young. "That was very clever and quick thinking on your part." The man said, clearly impressed with her.
Dark eyes then returned to the whizzing firework as it seemed to be "searching". It was not long before it left sparkles behind and stopped over a pile. His eyes then went to her and he nodded. It seemed that she had found what they had been searching the bwtter part of a couple of hours for.
Somehow she had been wrong these years, especially in the last year. Willow knew better now having placed herself in obvious danger to pass messages. Snape had been a double agent that made sure they survived even if he was even more hated.
Willow looked to him for a moment, probably the most unguarded she had ever looked.
"It's like a muggle flare with the tracking potion. It tracks and instead of wondering where it is. It sends up the sound and flares," Willow explained. "There was a rescue when we were in Wales for Holiday, and saw those...thought why can't they be combined?"
It whized around for a moment before stopping in the corner and gave a red flash and crack leaving the sparkles behind. "There we go..."
Being so free to touch another or to help was not in his nature. The helping bit perhaps waa becoming so but not the touching. So when he had done it and it had clicked, his own cheeks even became a faint pink. What got the man to flush more was the small flush from the young woman.
Truly he was at a loss as he did not or rather chose not to interact much with others. So he only gave a weak smile and a nod to her utterance of "Thanks". And the man kept her hand steady until she had poured the amount of potion that she had been looking to do.
The fireworks had been the last thing he had expected and FINALLY he had stepped back and was beginning to regain himself. "What does that mean exactly?" Severus aaked quietly.
Normally there was someone who knew the ointment to relieve the pain, or there was downtime. Right now there was only a time crunch before their body wore down completely. Damnit, they had fought Death Eaters, fought with the Order, and just survived potions. This wouldn't be the end.
Looking back to him she gave a small flush. She never recounted touching him, or him even touching anyone. This was almost sweet.
"Thanks," she said. Finding it at the right level, before placing another dab of something red. "No idea what this is but it works."
Placing another piece of the paper in she saw it fizzle before launching like a firework. "I love this part of my job..." She gave a free grin.
Blakely was still letting the items flow around in the swirl but it was hurting her head. There was way too much stuff and she knew if she was going to hell right now that Willow would be worse. Because she didn't know how much more she could take, the young woman gave up to try and see if she could find the other two.
Everything was seeming to pile up or look the same. Everytime it seemed like he had looked in one area, the room would rotate and more "junk" would take the previous' spot. It was getting harder and harder to consentrate. But he knew he had to keep trying and to help the two young women. Dumbledore had made that VERY clear though he did not know why.
He had done with the area he had been searching in and backtracked a bit. Soon he came across "Piper" and she looked even worse if that were possible. And for a moment he watched as she found a bowl and was about to pour a bit more of the potion. And from what he could see it was rather shakily at that. Without much thought, the man had moved to her and steadied her hand, helping her pour.
The headache wasn't getting better and the room only seemed to be growing. After an hour with an increasing headache she knew they wouldn't last going through it again.
"We need another approach," Willow rubbed her temples before fumbling for the remainder of that potion. She'd just owe the person that makes it another favor. If only her arm wanted to work with her, there wasn't fire but it was steady tingling.
"This should work...God, I hope so," she said finding an bowl to pour it into.
Willow had been VERY good at what she had done. Always so very clever and witty. Sometimes both a blessing and curse. Especially when it got them both into and out of trouble. And for a moment or two, the young woman had let herself think on it. Or did until the doorway had appeared in front of them.
Severus nodded to her when she had asked that she had. He had seen hiw tired she had been and how tired she seemed. In fact, both of them looked like hell and like they needed a long sleep. So he hoped they would find it soon.
"I'll start off this way. Good luck.." The man said and soon left them.
Blakely went off to a pile herself and had withdrawn her wand. The young woman decided to have the items floating around her in a circle and studying each. She had no patience for truly digging through the piles. She was just hoping ONE of them would find it soon.
Being muggle born didn't make her popular, nor did her affinity for getting into trouble. They needed someone on the inside to report who was going in and out, and whatnot, so they devised a communication system and code and became fucking spies. If it hadn't been so traumatic, it was amazing.
Stepping to the wall, she focused her mind before the door revealed itself. "I did? Oh...right...I need sleep. Um, yes, it's supposed to be--"
Entering she looked at the massive piles everywhere. "In here...so, yeah, let's do this."
She took one corner, since she was systematic. INstead of going by hand she sorted through the piles by what material it was.
She had not been in school their last year. The girl had joined what was left of the Order and had only joined in the Final Battle at Hogwarts. But she knew the pain and hell the others had faced. And she regretted not having been able to help. Dumbledore had been a great loss..but to her all of their friends, teachers, and those they knew had come at such a high cost.
[b "He always knows...remember here the walls do have ears and eyes."] The young woman said. Her features had gotten semi back to normal, but it killed her knowing what they did.
"Perhaps to split up could save some time. You already did show me a basic last night of what you would need." Severus said in his slow drawl and offered them a faint smile
[b "How does he do it? It's really disturbing,"] Willow commented. There was sadness knowing in the next few years he'd be gone. This Dumbledore was lighter than the one they had sort of known. That funeral was the first time she felt her heart plunged in freezing water.
Seeing the look from Blakely, she knew it was because they knew he'd die as well. Blakely hadn't been there for the hellish last year, yet they made it alive.
[b "Uh, yeah, I guess we could use a little help,"] Willow nodded.
Blakely had honestly hoped she would not have to be setting foot back in the castle again for a long time. There had been so many good times spent here. But also the worst days of her life too. And she couldn't help the tears that threatened to fall as she could remember all those they had lost. Quickly she had to push those thoughts away or she would break.
[b "Time is...shall we say of the essence?"] Blakely asked as Willow's hand been placed on her arm. When asked if she wanted to say hi, the young woman shook her head.
"Professor Dumbledore did say I may find you here. He even suggested that I help in your search." The man said as he moved towards them. And the look the second young woman gave was one of pain in a sense. It really did have him curious but he did not speak more
