The second floor corridors were dark and ethereal as Jimin and you walked through them. The night had closed in, and though you knew that in the theatre it would be bright and loud, here it was so peacefully hushed.
You leant heavily on Jimin’s strong body, keeping your bad leg from any pressure. “I’m sorry.” You said softly. “You must be sick of having to half carry me everywhere.”
He smiled. “It’s what we ballerino’s are trained to do.”
“Usually the ballerino’s does a little more to help, though.” You pointed out. “I can walk.”
He rolled his eyes. “I think you’ve already done way more than you should on it. Really, I should be handing you off to Doctor Hill, not making you move even more.”
“As soon as Doctor Hill gets at me, I’ll be locked in a dance-proof cell for the rest of my life.”
Jimin grinned, as he helped you down the senior corridor. “You’ll find a way out, just like you did this time.”
“I didn’t want to break the rules.” You said.
He raised an eyebrow. “But you had a decent reason.”
You paused as you reached the door to the Senior Common Room. “What do you mean?”
The two of you went in. None of the lights were on, but the heater in front of the deceased fireplace glowed a warm orange. Jimin helped you over to one of the couches and sat you down, pulling up a coffee table and a cushion to rest your ankle on. You felt so helpless, but warmth spread through your chest. You had always fended for yourself, this was strange, but so nice.
