    Summary

    "He sighs, turning back around, freezing in his spot as he hears a distant… well, something. He’s not sure what it is, yet, but he keeps quiet, listening for any other sound. There it is, again, and this time he recognizes it as a piano, in the distance, somewhere in this abandoned old building – the sound of the single note echoing through the large halls and many rooms. Again, a note, then a chord, and he cocks his head as whoever is playing starts the song in earnest."

    Ghosts aren't real. That much Geralt knows. That's why, when he explores the halls of the abandoned Woodward Sanatorium in the hopes of renovating the building, he knows it's not haunted. The toy car in one of the rooms only moves on its own because of the uneven floor. The wheelchair in another room doesn't change positions, he's just remembering things wrong. The shadows he sees out of the corner of his eye are just that- shadows, tricks of the light, his imagination.

    Yet, even he can't explain the piano music that drifts through the halls of the abandoned building.

    Summary

    “Jaskier,” he calls again, looking down at him, interrupting the man’s stream of words, “why won’t you go home.

     

    The careless smile on the bard’s face grows pinched, his shoulders tense.“I don’t have a home, dear. A house and a home are not the same thing.”

     

    The silence is unsettling, though Jaskier yammers on about nothing and everything in particular.

     

    The tendrils of guilt grow into vines.

     

     

    Or, Geralt is a witcher and a mercenary and Jaskier is wanted by his parents. The witcher sets out to deliver Jaskier to his parents and Jask trails along, not knowing of Geralt’s intentions, young and excited about all the adventure he’ll see traveling with a witcher. Geralt, on the other hand, ends up falling in love with Jaskier along the way...
