He watched with aggressive, protective suspicion as a tall lean witch approached him and then the boy. By nature Nemsi didn't trust anyone, but the boy's wounds were out of his depth and he knew he needed help. He hated to ask for help. Hated it more than he hated vegetables. More than just about anything. But he wasn't so proud a man that he wouldn't do something to help the young urchin. His needs, his pride, no longer mattered. It was about the child. He grunted as she moved to take him away, refusing to leave his side even though he had yet to be asked to. She had a soft voice and kind eyes but he was still wary even as he followed her past the nurse's station and into a small room.

He hated small rooms too.

Feeling trapped and especially like he didn't fit the tall brute of a man grew rigid. She asked him a question, he was fairly certain of that, but he took a moment to formulate the answer. He wasn't ignoring her but finding it hard to bring about sentences in the language she was speaking. He hated London as well. Everyone here spoke English, it was narrow and boring. He was still trying to figure out how to answer her first question when she placed the strange shiny thing on the boys chest and Nemsi took a step forward without realizing it. Eyeing the device sharply he folded his muscular arms over his chest. "What is it?" He asked, pointing at the stethoscope quickly before returning to crossing his arms. She said more words and he liked the sound of her voice but when she said blood he felt his heart jump. "Why? Why you need blood?" He asked, feeling like this medicine was absurd. Since when did fixing someone mean stealing their blood? They needed their blood. It was supposed to be inside the body, not outside, what kind of healer brought the blood outside? Nemsi far from understood practical medicine. They didn't exactly have a sterile operating bay on the Demonfish.

"Blood inside. Not outside." He told her in short abrupt sentences before growing frustrated. "Charm?" He motioned toward the air around him, above his head, in a circle before pointing at his throat. "English, charm?" He asked again, hoping she knew the spell that would allow him to understand what she was saying and the other way around. Nemsi knew very few spells and he'd never actually had a wand. Where he came from they were obsolete. Wizards from his part of the world used other types of items to harness their magics. Items more useful than ornate sticks that broke and got lost. Nemsi of course knew very little real magic, having never attended formal wizarding school, but of course he wasn't about to share that weakness with a stranger.

It was obvious on his face that Nemsi was more than frustrated with not being able to understand what she was saying and more importantly what she was doing to the boy. Modern medicine always looked like torture to him. He was used to potions and salves and humming, not cold metal objects and needles. He brought the boy here because he knew they would do what they could for him but it didn't mean he understood what they were doing. Nemsi didn't know why he cared so much about the health of a stranger he had just met but maybe he saw a little bit of himself in the boy. Maybe if someone had taken a moment to help him when he needed it he wouldn't of ended up in such horrific surroundings. Maybe things would be different. He sucked in a harsh breath of air when she pulled out her wand. Even though he'd asked her to perform magic it didn't make him any more comfortable. He didn't trust wand magic either, how could he, he'd never seen it used for anything but bad.

"Yes much better." He told her, chin raised, as the words she was saying were suddenly presented to his ear's in his own language. It was nice to hear it even if he knew it was a lie. He spoke comfortably back to her in his own tongue and began to relax only ever so slightly. This was progress at least. As soon as he felt a little better another woman came into the room and Nemsi tensed right back up again. He saw the first witch hold her back, noting her superiority and valuing it. "Yes." He told her shortly to answer her question, she could proceed. She was being polite and respectful and now with the barrier of language between them temporarily solved Nemsi wanted to allow her to do what she was trained to do. He knew he couldn't do it, he came here for exactly this, so he would get out of the way.

Stepping back and finding himself up against scratchy wallpaper he watched as Montserrat and the nurse began their work. She asked if he had any questions and of course he did. "What is a... pe-di-atrician?" He sounded the word out as she had said it. It was a word that did not translate to his language and thus a word he did not recognize. "Is that your name?"

He looked from one healer to the other and back to the first when they began to laugh about his question. Silently he cursed the translation charm, assuming it was faulting and had made him sound like a fool in their language. The only thing that kept him from becoming truly upset was the sound of her laugh. It was melodic, soft, it was comforting like maybe he could trust her. People lied with words but it was much harder to lie with expressions. He liked the way her laugh sounded, it nearly made him smile. When she told him of her name he tried to mouth it out, sound out the words the way that she had said them but it was a lot. The way the words formed was so foriegn to him but Monste was something he could wrap his mind around, that was close enough to something he recognized to be able to repeat without massacring her name. He didn't want to offend her by saying her name incorrectly. "Montse." He repeated, finally smiling ever so slightly only to have the small grin torn from his face only seconds later.

Nemsi had begun to relax again but instantly his shoulders tensed back up and he held his chin high, suspicion in his voice. "Why do you need my name. I am not being healed." He told her, not meaning to sound as rude and ungrateful as he might of. He was paranoid and secretive but for good reason. He had to be just like he had to help the child but he couldn't sacrifice his safety and the safety of his loved ones for the child's either. He wanted both. He wanted to leave his name entirely out of it but there was something about the way she held herself, the way she spoke, the way she smiled, that made him want to trust her. Something about her was different than most people he had met, it was something good. Maybe she was good. He hadn't had much experience with true goodness in his life but perhaps someone who dedicated themselves to treating and helping children was that: good. Honestly good. Maybe she could be trusted.

"I do not know his name. I found him on the street." He told her bluntly, the charm doing it's work as his words sounded strange even as he said them. Magic was odd. "Nemsi, I am Nemsi." He finally confessed, his hand reaching to point at his chest as he did. He didn't give her a last name but it was a lot for him to even give her that. There was more than just a simple word to name. Nemsi knew of the magic that could be performed just on a name alone, not that he thought she would be up to any of that darkness, but he was cautious even so.

"What will you do with him?"

Despite his suspicions, of which there were many, Montse was putting him at ease. He felt like the young wizard would be in good hands with this witch. She seemed not only to understand what she was doing but to easily pick up on the nuances of the situation, even if Nemsi couldn't. He shifted his weight from one foot to the other as she took notes. He was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt and wondering if she would do him the same favor. He didn't know the child but it wouldn't be the first time assumptions were made during a situation like this. He was a grown man bringing a young wizard in all beat up and sickly, it wasn't hard to leap to the wrong conclusion, but she didn't seem to be. The way she just wanted to gather information and not jump to the wrong answer made him relax slightly. "Nice to meet you." He repeated what she said, the translation charm helping him understand what she had said so he could return it.

And then she said something he was not ready or willing to hear. "No, no." He said, hands up in front of him and head shaking as he began to slowly step backward toward the doors. "No auth-or-ties." He repeated again the word she had used, now knowing what it meant. He didn't want to answer their questions or deal with their suspicions. "They will... assume wrong things." He tried to figure out the ways to say what he meant and the language magic was helping but not nearly fast enough for him to feel confident in the meaning. He began to speak in his own language, fast and hoarse, clearly upset by her wanting him to stay and wait while she got the authorities. She wanted him to stay and talk with them and for a moment he began to consider it. She seemed so trustworthy and truly kind, like she wanted to help, and he wanted to believe her. She was a healer after all. She wasn't an enemy. Nemsi was paranoid and he couldn't help it.

She moved toward the door and he felt himself being ushered out. He stole one last look at the poor kid who was lucky to be in the care of such a well-versed mediwitch and followed her out. Towering over her height Nemsi felt like a child moving along behind her in the narrow brightly lit hall. He tried to take a few quick steps, to move to her side and speak with her about this 'authorities' business but every time he almost peered past her he would have to slow down to let someone pass by them. The hall way led into a larger waiting room and finally he could see her face again.

"Montse, I can not wait for authorities."

"No more questions."
