Cassius had a protective side. One that surprised her, but was rather adorable. Normally Ondina hated being coddled. Even by him. In this situation though? She enjoyed it. To feel his arms tighten defensively around her. It was almost possessive, "Hmm." Was her only response. They probably should move, but the moment she felt his fingers at her chin that plan went out the finger, the girl obediently turning back to him. The plan quickly returned though when yet another explosion went off. She tsk'ed in frustration, and felt a flash of anger. Yes the school was under attack, but that wasn't her problem! If they stayed clear of her, she'd stay clear of them! Not only that, the school being under attack was the perfect chance to be alone with him. Because there was no way anyone would put together both of them were missing. If she knew her class mates, a good number of them would be hiding as well. It'd be hours before the school tracked down all the students.
Ondina stayed close to him as he moved, squeezing his hand as she pulled out her own wand. Just in case. But then Cassius was moving faster, unlocking the door and taking off down the hall, pulling her along. He was moving swiftly, so much so that he was soon breathing a little harder. He was right to assume Ondina's own breathing had picked up much sooner, lungs burning. Asthma didn't like most physical activities, running down the halls included. Around another corner though and he finally stopped, pulling her into his arms and apologizing. She smiled as she tried to catch her breath. She took a slow deep breath, and then a second, trying to calm her racing heart. Finally she nodded and reached up to gently press a hand to his cheek. "Don't worry, I'm fine." It helped that she knew he had a rather handy potion on him. She'd discovered the last time they were together that he'd gotten in the happen of carrying it around. "I'm ready. Are you sure you can keep up?" she taunted.
The question was, where would they be safe from the intruders?
