How did he get here?
Cedric looked down at himself. The glistening residue on his clothes argued with his mind. That wasn't blood. Then why did it smell of blood? He didn't do this. Then where did it come from? He wasn't a monster. Then why was he covered in blood? Even his hands were covered in it...Cedric mutely stared at the backs of his hands, fascinated with the slight tremor pulsing through his limbs. They felt foreign, another thing his eyes and mind disagreed on.
Deep breath, close your eyes, count to ten, and...wake up
Cedric opened his eyes again, but the nightmare wasn't over. This wasn't a dream, then. A low moan grew in his throat at the sight of the mangle body in front of him. There was no denying the facts. He'd lost control and killed someone. Who would be willing to help him with this? Jake? Jake would put him down like the monster humans saw werewolves to be. Ilya? Would just congratulate him and pat him on the back. Soren? Soren might be willing to help, or rub his nose in it...Ced wasn't sure, but the Spiral felt like more of a safe bet than his crazy half brother or his backstabbing best friend.
A haze of red fogged his vision at the reminder of Jake's betrayal. The light tremors escalated into soul quaking muscular cramps as his body tried and failed to shift in rage. Ced threw his head back to the sky and yelled at the moon, certain that She alone saw his suffering. The half-blood dropped to his knees, torn between rage and exhaustion.
Soren. Need to get a message to Soren.
He couldn't focus on a patronus. He did have an origami, so he scrawled out a plea for help, oblivious to the bloody fingerprints he left on the paper.
Need help, Kent docks across from the fort
When the crane sped off to find its intended recipient, Ced allowed himself a moment to collapse full out on the gravel beach. The cool stones brought down the heat of his rage momentarily, but instinct drove him to go further up the shoreline and into cover under the dock. Something about safety, defensible, and cover...he couldn't think straight...how had he gotten to this point?
