Sabriel had meant to stay in the bar after speaking to Blodwen, but the experience had shaken her more than she had liked to show. The woman is terrifying just by being, and yet so apparently rational, so cool. Kerrigor had retained his wits, but no ability to mimic humanity in conversation that way, and yet...

They are all too alike.

The Abhorsen has seen a great deal in her years since taking up the bells, but there are some things that still frighten her.

She really must speak with Sameth. Her own door is still gone, but if his is back... far better if he is away. The forge would seem her most likely chance of finding him, so there is her first port of call, knocking on the door and then peering in anyway.

Honestly, he's not sure if he's ready to go through it just yet so he's been working in the forge.

When she knocks, he doesn't look up since he's in the midst of trying to figure out how to make a spring work in a sort of leg and so waves to the person at the door.

As the Marks slip onto the metal, he uses a touch of sodering and then sets it down,

"Do you mind if I just see if this works? I'll be glad to help you after that."

He almost drops the little leg since he didn't expect her to look for him here and smiles in honest confusion.

Since he's glad to have her see what he does, but it just feels strange,

"My workroom's rather out of the way of everything."

He just looks uncomfortable but nods and traces a mark as the leg tries to hop.

Its movement is slightly awkward and he leans down to stop it and frowns,

"I really don't have it like I want it yet, but it can wait."

The ward makes him look around, its not one that he's used before and he's trying to spot how it works.

Also this gives him time to think of a decent explanation,

"I'm not sure quite yet. I think its going to end up a frog."

Even watching the spell isn't enough distraction to hide suddenly how pale he goes,

"What happened?"

"T.that's good."

He'd like to know more but he's not sure the best way to ask.

"I.i don't know how she thinks, but I can't think how she wouldn't."

It shakes him to see his mother so unsure and he's not sure of a way to comfort her or if he even can.

"I will. I promise that I will, Mother."

He doesn't want to though its hard when she looks at him that way since he's letting her down in so many ways.

"Of course and many people here fear and hate her so she will be dealt with, I hope."

The touch is nice but he's never sure what to do and so gives her a worried smile.

"Yes, but I'm not sure everything they can do, but she's known danger."

He looks down and absently adjusts a piece of metal on the leg, it should be easier to talk to her somehow.

Its quite striking just how fast he can go pale and look worried and sheepish,

"Um, I didn't mean to."

He also didn't mean for her to find out about it.

Maybe if he says it quickly and simply that will work best,

"A.after the attack, a woman in Security asked me some questions and I didn't tell her very much. Apparently she spoke to Blodwen so when I came in from the forge one day, she pointed at me and said I'd attacked her. I.i had, it was foolish and stupid and so I spent two days in the cells."

His voice sounds small as he looks down at his work and thinks of all the other ways he's disappointing her that she doesn't know.

"Y.yes, the cells are nice and have a sort of Sending built into them."

Her confusion gets a small smile from him, he and Ellimere used to try and guess what she would do if she had to punish them. It wasn't too hard to guess because she never seemed to know what to do,

"I promise that I won't provoke or approach her again."

"Yes, I'll do my best to stay clear of the more dangerous people here."

He knows he shouldn't be smiling but carefully parsing words reminds him of the arguments he made to be able to spend time in the castle forge when he was younger.

"I'd much rather be in here making things than getting hurt or put in the cells again."

Which is the complete and utter truth, there's more he wishes he could say but this is best for now.

"I will."

Its not enough, but its what he can say and mean.

How long she takes is hard, he can do some things, not enough but some.

Though now he's not sure what to say, he doesn't want her to leave again, but just has no idea where to start.

He doesn't want her to leave yet, but talking is so hard,

"You can stay. I don't mind having anyone here while I'm working. I tend to get lost in the work."

That just gets a grin from him and a slightly sheepish look,

"I haven't burned myself in a while."

Then he turns back to his work and at first, it takes a while to not be too aware of her there. Though in time, he forgets and gets lost in trying to find the best way to make the leg move as he wants it to.
