Falling Feathers Chapter 26
Chapter Twenty-Six: End
At four o'clock the next morning Sterling opened one eye at Maka and Soul's kitchen table for the first time since having been stabbed. Granted it was with great difficulty but at least he was conscious. Kris patted him gently on the head as Coraline peeked over the table to see what had just happened and Stella walked in from the living room, Andrew remained seated on the couch facing away from them with something in his lap.
Sterling's eyes burned and his head pounded but he smiled none the less.
"Are you alright?" Kris asked laughing happily.
"I- I can't move," he replied through gritted teeth.
Her eyes glistened with a thin layer of tears. "N-no?"
Kris bowed her head and placed a hand on his arm.
"What's going on outside?" he asked trying to change the subject.

All fell silent and bowed their head

"Hey! Hey!" Crovix shouted leaning over Hace's body on the sofa of Maka's house, "He's awake! He woke up!"
Sterling, still lying on the kitchen table, turned his head to see Hace sit up so quickly he almost knocked foreheads with Crovix, who jumped backwards and bumped into the coffee table. Kris sat up from her chair at the table and looked over Sterling at Hace, rubbing the dirt out of his eyes and hair.

"See! I said you'd be okay!" Crovix smiled trying to ruffle Hace's hair, but pushed her off and started to get up but failed, limping slightly.

Helena grinned and laughed as she knocked a weapon from a Legion member's hands and twirled her red blade between her fingers.
"Too slow!" she chuckled kicking his legs out from under him and smashing him over the head with the flat surface of her sword. Her young attacker, looking to be only about fifteen or so, was knocked unconscious and Helena quickly grabbed him by the feet and dragged him to the side of the alley where four others were lined up, also knocked out.
"Why are there so many of us," Karsh groaned looking above his head to see a few other meisters and weapons sprint by either chasing or running from Legion.
"Come on!" Helena said running on but Karsh grabbed her by the arm.
"Go home!" he shouted, "That's five out of hundreds! You and the baby are going to get hurt!"
Helena pouted but knew he was right so threw her hood up and began to walk back, still cautious and glancing around corners as Karsh stood motionless
