    “I’m starting to think we’re a little understaffed.”  Le said to himself as he pushed deeper into the market, his wand held at the ready.  He couldn’t help but feel like the enormity of the situation might be a bit much for a couple of ministry department workers to handle.They’d set out in pairs; It didn't make sense to rush in alone and get themselves killed, someone had said.  He’d ended up alone anyways.  The chaos had seen him separated from his partner but - and this was an important but - he hadn’t gotten himself killed.    

    It wasn’t for lack of trying, of course.  The large swath of claw marks from his left shoulder to his mid-back was evidence of that.  Someone had stopped most of the bleeding with a crude charm and he knew he would need to see a proper healer eventually but there were still so many people missing he couldn’t turn in now.

    It had been several hours and the dust from the collapse had begun to settle.  It swirled in clouds around his ankles with every step he took.  Streaked with dust, sweat, and blood he trudged on.  Hours of adrenaline and tension was taking its toll leaving his body sore and tired.

    With a start he spotted the shimmer of a protective charm and moved towards it, silently thanking all the people who’d been smart enough to bunker down in safety rather than try to run.  He’d seen the remains of too many who didn’t make it.  He stopped short of the protective barrier and called through it.  

    “I’m with the Ministry, are you alright?”

    After the embarrassingly but fortunately not too destructive incident at the Market less than a week ago, during which she had become the pilot of a rogue magic carpet and ended up careening into a rather less than impressed Mr Crouch, Minnie had been quite sure than anything else that happened at the Marketplace would be quite uninteresting. She had been quite, quite wrong.

    After the initial attack – during which she had managed to stun a tiger into near-unconsciousness before promptly hiding for all she was worth and casting a protective charm around herself – Minnie had seen the end in sight. The tigers were winning, the Ministry was slow in responding and, after living through fire and plague and Mr Crouch’s ire and auntie Olivia’s school and all manner of other terrible calamities, she was going to be eaten by tigers. She had cried silently in her huddled hiding place, hoping Emma remembered her well and that mama wouldn’t be too sad and before she knew it the world, as she had expected it would, came crashing down around her and darkness fell.

    Before it could occur to her to apparate away unconsciousness had claimed Minnie briefly until a voice cut through the haze of her mind and she realise that, against expectations, she was alive!

    “I…I think so,” she replied uncertainly, unable to make her voice especially loud and so she kicked out against the barrier in the hope it’s movement would stop whoever it was before they left her here, thinking her dead. “Please help me!” She coughed out.

    YOU CAN BE HER HERO BABY

    When Le saw the form stir he released a breath he hadn't realized he'd been holding.  At what point had he started assuming every prone body was dead?  He moved towards her only stopping when he felt the force of the barrier pushing him back.  

    "Please, if you are hurt try not to move."  he said hurriedly, scanning the barrier for a gap or break he could get through.  He was impressed to find it whole and complete which was surely why she'd lasted this long.  He stepped back and cast a larger barrier of his own, taking care to completely enclose himself and her own shield within it.

    He moved back as close to her as her barrier would allow.  "I've got us covered -"  he began gently.  He would be lying if he said he wasn't at least  a little relieved to be under protection himself for a moment, he couldn't imagine how she must be feeling.  "If you can, I need you to lower your shield.  Mine will protect us when you do."
