*That was… odd… Certainly wasn’t every day that anyone had been interested in talking at this hour
Unless it was Merry… but even then she never bothered to knock on the door like a normal person; but nonetheless, Wallace rather sluggishly walked over to the door and opened… it…
And with that, his expression turned to one of confusion, disbelief, and a hint of suspicion; why would Chester ever feel obligated to visit him???*
I- hello, Chester…
… Apologise…? Wh- but… you-
What is that? Why is that an issue to you now and why- now you gone and broken your fucking leg!?
*Okay, granted, he knew such concern that accompanied his confusion was probably a little… unusual, given Wallace’s general impression of the other, but seeing Chester in a wheelchair and… his rather notable change in attitude (what Wallace had seen of it anyway) only served to amplify the suspicions that something really bad happened- well, it was already obvious enough by the wheelchair, but… whatever… trying to figure out which factor was causing his possible overreaction hardly mattered at the moment. It could wait until later*
[ He sighs, an expected response from Wallace. While his tolerance of him [and a select few others] have grown since then, he was still working on his general attitude toward him……he was still an idiot in his book though. ]
It’s a long story I’d rather not repeat, but to make it short i suppose I’ve had a slight change of heart as they say. Take it or leave it, I’ve cleared at least a little bit of my conscience.
[ He started to back up a bit to leave, being careful not to bump into the walls. He had a long trip back home so he figured he’d better start sooner than later. ]
*Without thinking, he grabbed the back of Chester’s wheelchair, but immediately withdrew his hand after remembering the helpful fact that not everyone reacted so well to being touched unexpectedly (thinking of Cedric, specifically; it’d made him a bit paranoid since)*
I, ah-… That’s it? You’re just leaving after coming all the way here in damned wheelchair???
