[After this: 1, 2, 3]

It's late, at least by his body-clock. There's nothing else he can do, so he may as well take a nap.

The cot feels unreasonably exposed; he spends a few minutes wrangling the thin mattress onto the floor, at which point the framework obligingly vanishes to give him a convenient place against the wall to lay it down. He takes off his shoes and socks and his button-down shirt, and lies down in his jeans and undershirt, and stares at the wall.

A week. Maybe in a week he can convince them that he isn't a danger to anyone and they'll let him go.

Ava Wilson, member of Security, sent Matt and Epimetheus a note:

Hey guys,

Caught the dude. His name's Andrew Wells. He's in the cells for a week for attempted kidnapping and fighting, but I'm trying to stretch that out until he's safe to be around other people again. Let me know if you have questions.

-Ava W.


Matt read the note several times. Thought about trying to find Epimetheus.

But in the end, he doesn't write anybody any notes at all before he can be found padding down the row of cells, soft-soled sneakers damping the noise.

Matt sticks his hands in his pockets. He feels a bit more jittery than he expected; at least if his fingers shake, nobody'll be able to see.

"Hey," he calls. "Anybody home?"
twiggy_witchboy: (I'm sorry what?)

[personal profile] twiggy_witchboy 2016-08-19 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
"Um. Matt Jamison?"

[personal profile] twiggy_witchboy 2016-08-19 07:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Matt shuffles into view: faded band t-shirt, jeans, his protective bracelet peeking out above one pocket.

"I heard you were in here."

Steel ring.

For no immediately obvious reason, he thinks, Someone has caught you.

Matt watches Andrew for a moment, then pads a bit closer--keeping a respectful distance from the glass, his hands in his pockets, and his shoulders as loose as he can.



"I was in here once myself," he says, glancing around. "It was surprisingly pleasant, for jail."

Ava's had a long, sucky day of trying to convince people that this time, longer sentencing is totally warranted. She thinks the only reason she won is because the situation pertains to her world, which is like the opposite of why you should win these things.

For the moment, she's skulking in a corner booth with tea. Chamomile-lemon.

She hopes the soothing effects kick in soon.
hadyougoing: (welp)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2016-08-22 03:08 am (UTC)(link)
Ava glances down.

A faint smile.

"Hey, Baby. How's it going?"
hadyougoing: (decidedly unhappy)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2016-08-22 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
She sighs.

"Yeah. You wanna come up and hang out for awhile?"
hadyougoing: (highly dubious)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2016-08-22 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
Ava pats the top of Baby's carapace lightly.

And, with her free hand, grabs her mug to sip some tea.

"We get to keep Andrew as long as we need to," she says. "Until he gets better."

[personal profile] nita_callahan 2016-08-30 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
A day or so later, a new face comes down the hallway.

Working Security while also being a working wizard back home is always a little bit of a juggling act; every time Nita comes back to the bar from a few days away she checks the logs in the office to see what she's missed. It's not unusual to see a friend's name in a report. Which . . . probably says something about the kind of people Nita befriends around here, but that's neither here nor there.

That said, Andrew's name was -- kind of a surprise. As was the rest of the arrest report.

She pauses a little outside conversational distance. "Andrew?"
nita_callahan: (Uncomfortable!Nita)

[personal profile] nita_callahan 2016-08-30 08:48 pm (UTC)(link)

. . . Jeez, Nita has no idea how to handle this.

"Hey." She gives him a weak little wave.

nita_callahan: (Upright!Nita)

[personal profile] nita_callahan 2016-08-30 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)

"So, um, this is a new thing for you," she says, gesturing at the cell. "How're you doing?"

nita_callahan: (Listening!Nita)

[personal profile] nita_callahan 2016-08-30 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)

"Do you feel like talking about it?"
