Ver hadn't sat down to digest her friends death; Enjolras' death. She should work to try and make a funeral for him, try to send him off with good memories and a hope that maybe he would return but she wasn't sure, all she had was hope and as the days passed it became less and less likely and his casket grew colder and colder. She wished she'd sought out Kira sooner but it didn't feel right, sure they were friends but at the same time there was always distance between them the cold frigidity of when they were just tense clanmates never fully going away even after all this time. They would never be completely close always poked by each others boundaries. She doesn't expect him to come to her either but time has changed the man just as it's changed her, she's not the hot tempered immature medic who'd worked under him and he isn't the calculating bastard of a leader he once was in the jungle.
She hadn't known he'd left for the Veil to hear the news she was to scared to give him and suddenly hearing his paw wrap against her door as well as his voice calling in towards her asking to see her, asking to talk about their many losses. About what he'd just learned he'd never have again. He doesn't sob against her doorway doesn't beg to see her and she wasn't sure what she would've done if he had. She'd never seen him cry - she'd seen him so brutally injured but never had she seen tears well out of his eye. She leaps off her cot her paws pads thudding against the aged wood floors of her cabin as she makes her way over to the door and opens it up. She forces a smile tries not to state Enjolras' name the minute her gaze falls on his face. She takes a breath ”Yeah of course, come in and make yourself at home” she tells him one wing opening up and gesturing inside. ”You should know i'm not one to turn down a free drink” she laughs but it doesn't perk her lips any higher, perhaps even sounds a bit choked.
Once he would enter she would sit close to her cot that wistful sad smile still painted over her and without thinking or meaning to she barks out a question that she knows the answer of ”You went to the Veil didn't you?”
