After leaving Regulus to his stubborn melancholy, Gabby went back out in the living room. Zac was slouched in the oversized couch, Aya at his side. There was no sign of Nye, Tristan or the Three and she guessed they might've escaped to the pub when she returned with Regulus.

"Gabby?" Zac asked, sitting up straight.

She sunk into a chair across from them and rubbed her tired eyes.

"What's wrong?" he asked, when she didn't acknowledge him.

"Aed bit him," she sighed. "He went for me and…he bit him."

"It's not healing," Aya said blandly, earning herself a glare from Zac.

"No," Gabby snapped, narrowing her eyes at the hybrid.

"What do we need to do?" Zac asked. "Is there a way to heal him?" He got it even if Aya didn't and that was a role reversal if she ever saw one.

"He says the only way to heal it would be with Aed's blood."

"Well, we're screwed. Try getting within five feet of the guy," Aya said, splitting the wound further.

Biting her tongue, Gabby glanced away. Fighting between themselves wouldn't solve anything. Regulus was dying and there was nothing she could do. Going after Aed was a suicide mission. Anyone who decided to try would be dead the moment the Tuatha laid eyes on them. She knew she needed to ask, regardless of Aya's reaction.

Glancing at the Celestine she asked, "If it comes to it, would you?" She didn't need to elaborate any further than that.

"No," Aya snarled. Her entire body seemed to glow with the force of her voice.

"Aya," Gabby sighed, trying to keep her emotions in check. "I'm asking you as a witch. As a sister. As a friend. If it comes to it, will you end his suffering?"



"You're forgetting it was Regulus who snatched me from my forest. His actions sealed my fate and that of my family. I will not help you."

"He was ordered to do it," she cried, her control beginning to crack. "Katrin ordered him and he was compelled to do it."

"He may have been ordered, but he wanted it do it regardless."

"It was two thousand years ago," she exclaimed, rising to her feet. "Two thousand years, Aya. Learn a little forgiveness. Aren't you supposed to be the embodiment of nurturing and care? How about you care a little for once in your fucked up life?"

"Gabby..." Zac began, but she didn't want to hear it.

"I'll never forget this, Aya. Never. Don't even think to ask me for anything ever again, because you already know my answer."

Aya rose to her feet, her pale hands clenched into tight fists. "You have no idea what you're dealing with, Gabby."

Gabby felt her power tingle in her stomach, aching for release and before she could lose it and turn on the hybrid, she stalked from the room, tears threatening.

"Let her go," she heard Zac say, but she didn't stop to listen to more.

Easing open the door to Regulus' room, she frowned at how sick he looked. He'd collapsed back onto the bed fully clothed, too tired to even pull the covers back.
