By the time Kitsa moved to explain her plans, Orion had sailed to the side of the unconscious Air. In one swift, graceful movement, he wisked her slim form into his arms. Orion felt strange sweeping her up from her own brother, but Kitsa had informed everyone that they would be doing the assisting and Lanir had made no move to get her out of the room. The fair-faced elf looked over his new charge as a nanny might a child: analytic concern. "Do we have a room set up?" Orion asked Kitsa as he adjusted Air in his arms to hold her head up better.

"This way!" she called the pale elf and led the way upstairs. Kitsa brought him down the hall until she came across the room number that matched the key. After unlocking the door, Kitsa opened it up and stepped aside to let him pass.
Alera Tai'var wrote:"Thank you," Orion said softly as he passed her into the room. It wasn't too bad of a set up, considering how often he did not even have a bed. The silver-haired elf seemed to float across the room as he came to the closest bed and, with all of the care of a mother for a babe, laid her on the bed. He adjusted her to lay on her side. There were rumors of people who killed themselves somehow by laying on their backs after passing out. Certainly, he would not be faulted for laying her down the wrong way. The slight fingers of his hand pulled her bangs away from her face and behind her ear.
"I shall sit with her," he said, feeling strangely responsible for her.
Kitsa watched Orion closely, her head cocked to the side curiously. The way he cared for Air seemed quite paternal in Kitsa's eyes. The quarter elf straightened and smiled softly. "I shall sit with you as well then," Kitsa said and sat on the other bed.
She was silent for a moment, but she broke it by decided to speak her mind. "You seemed very father like in the way you laid her down," she stated. Kitsa wasn't normally so blunt, but she far too curious to see how he would react to such a comment.
