Harsh words

Gawain had not expected Ellie to be quite so upset and was a little taken aback by it. Despite of this he did not let it show that her harsh words actually hurt a bit.

"I'm sorry, but this really is for his own good" he responded in a calm tone "and for yours as well. You both need to understand that you can't just do these kind of things. Someone could have seen you. You also have to remember that Mr. Marriner has only just had that collar removed and he still hasn't completed all his training. I know he might not directly want to hurt you, but in a.. well.. excited situation it will become even more difficult for him to hold back.".

He actually felt a little sorry for splitting them up, but it had to be done "Now, we need to get that wound of yours treated, allright?".
