A gasp for breath could be heard, making him jump and look to the girl. There she was, breathing. Finally breathing. He sighed in delight, taking her small hand in his. Makarov chuckled to himself about this.
"Lu…cy?" The celestial spirit looked up to his still unconscious master. "Lucy! Oh Lucy!" he said running around to the other side of the bed to hold her other hand.
"Oh, thank goodness." Makarov, Laxus, and Loki all jumped at the sound of Mira's voice, and turned to the door. In the doorway stood practically every member of the guild. Every single one had tears in their eyes. "Thank goodness she's alright."
"When did you all get here?" Laxus couldn't figure out how in the world he kept missing people today.
"Well we heard you screaming for Lucy," Gray stated.
Happy flew over to the blonde celestial mage and sat beside her. "Lucy." A strayed tear left his face as he snuggles into Lucy's side.
If it was possible, Laxus could've sworn that Lucy seemed to relax at Happy's small gesture.
"Move! Out of my way, you stupid humans!" Porlyusica came bustling through the crowd in the doorway. "We have work to do! Now out! All of you out!"
Several people left warily. In the room, all that was left was Makarov, Porlyusica, Laxus, Loki, Wendy, Mirajane, and the two unconscious teens.
Porlyusica set her bag of ingredients on the table thing again and got out a bowl and bunch of suspicious looking herbs and started mixing stuff together. "While I'm putting this gunk that depresses the poison on the boy, I need someone to clean out the stab wound on the girl. If I had known what had attacked them, I never would have put those herbs on her wound. When mixed with kapak venom, it speeds up her reaction to the poison traveling in her system. She could possibly be dead any minute now."
Everyone besides Porlyusica looked at each other, wondering if they should tell her about what just happened. Mira went over to the cabinets and sinks and got a bowl full of water and a wash rag. She then went over to Lucy and pushed Laxus away so she would have room to clean the herbs from Lucy's wound. Laxus quickly stepped away and decided it would be best if he wasn't in the way. He sighed to himself before giving a quick glance to Lucy and walking out.
Porlyusica put the healing gunk on a wound on Natsu's side and Natsu squirmed away as if it burned, still unconscious. "Stupid human. Wendy, mind getting him to sit still?" Wendy went around to Natsu's other side to hold him down. "I'm going to put this on him quickly and he's probably going to fuss. I need to hurry this up to get to the girl. Be ready."
Porlyusica than quickly slathered the gunk on various wounds, some of it sinking into the wounds. Natsu struggled but Wendy calmed him down with her magic. Once the witch was done, it took Natsu a second to relax. Porlyusica then proceeded to head to the blonde mage. Looking at the wound that Mirajane had just cleaned, the witch cringed. The stab wound now looked black and moldy, and, to top it off, it was bleeding again. Porlyusica cursed to herself and rushed over to her bag and added another ingredient to the gunk. Stirring it, she walked back over to the girl.
The celestial spirit was just a shimmering figure now. Loki was not going to leave his master's side. Not this time. Not even for the witch that was trying to get him to move.
Porlyusica, giving up on moving the spirit, went to the other side where Mira had been. She took a swab of the green gunk and carefully placed it on the celestial mage's stab wound. As soon as the gunk touched the wound, the wound became inflamed. Porlyusica jerked back, surprised.
The inflamed wound suddenly started shrinking till there was just a small pen-sized wound. It was still inflamed but wasn't as bad.
Porlyusica sighed in relief before using the gunk on the slash wound on her chest. Some of the gunk started sinking in, like it did on Natsu's. But this seemed to sink in more, like it was deeper. It worried the witch.
When she was pretty sure she was done with the slash on the girl's chest, she looked to the girls face. Porlyusica became very grim. If the slash wounds were deep on Lucy's chest as were the slash wounds on Natsu, then what if the slash wound on her face were the same? What could happen to this girl?
Makarov noted Porlyusica's hesitation and walked up. "Do you think she'll be ok?"
"I can't heal something I can't see that's already fragile."
Makarov grunted. "How badly do you think this wound affected her?"
"I don't know how deep it is, but if it's like the others, I fear the worst. Probably permanent brain damage. Maybe worse. Maybe better. Won't know for sure for a few days at the least."
Loki hearing this turned quickly to the witch. "Is there even the slightest possibility you are wrong? Or even the slightest possibility that she can get better?"
Porlyusica looked up to the spirit with an almost blank look. "Am I wrong that she will have brain damage? Probably not. Can she get better? Won't know till she wakes up. If she wakes up."
"….. If…" Tears came to the celestial spirits eyes as he looked back down to his master.
"You probably shouldn't have told him that," Makarov said looking to Loki.
Porlyusica waved him off. "Well there's one way to find out how deep this wound is." She slowly starts putting some of the gunk on the girl's face wound. The gunk sunk in. Porlyusica put some more on. It sunk in again. Again and again and again.
This wound was deep. Lucy must have been hit at a closer range here.
Porlyusica wasn't happy. She ran out of gunk and she wasn't satisfied with the way she left the girl's face wound before wrapping it up.
Sighing she turned to everyone. "Let them sleep. Only people allowed in here are Makarov and the celestial spirit who doesn't look like he'll leave anyways. Everyone else, OUT!"
