Karsci decided to come to the orphanage to see Grace, as him and Kamille had been talking about adoption and he was pretty set on adopting Grace. He just wanted to spend some time with her today, make sure that the choice they were making was the right one. After talking to the secretary, he went back into the playroom and opened the door. "Gracie?"
Looking up from where she was busy playing with foam blocks, the little girl beamed brightly at Karsci, scrambling to her feet, and toddling towards the man happily. "Karsi!" She chirped, raising her arms in an up motion, once she got to his feet. "Uppa!"
She shook her head, giggling brightly, and trying to capture Karsci's finger happily. "Non!" One of the workers who had been supervising the little girl smiled at the interactions before addressing Karsci. "She's getting some faint memories of the attacks that took her mother from her and orphaned her, so she's been regressing a bit, but we're hoping we've caught that before it got worse." Grace tugged on Karsci's ear to get his attention when she felt like she was being ignored, gaze fixed on the man.

"Ah alright, thank you for telling me-" He cringed when she tugged on his ear, glancing at her. "H-Hey, no tugging on my ear. That hurts," He said and gently pulled her hand away. "You need to be nice, if you want to get my attention just say my name."
She giggled sheepishly, nestling into his embrace happily. “Sowry, Daddy.” Those words caught the attention of the workers, and they exchanged glances, hoping this time was the final time to get her adopted.

He was caught off guard by that as well and was silent for a moment, but he couldn’t say anything that wouldn’t make Grace sad. “I-it’s okay sweetie,” He said and ruffled her hair. “Just be careful next time okay?”
She clumsily tried to catch the ball, but missing. The ball went rolling past her, hitting the feet of one of the older boys, a bully to little Grace, and he bent to pick it up, throwing it at Grace, sending her falling backwards with the force. "Oh... oops. Must've been an accident." He remarked, a cold expression looking at the little girl with disdain, and stalking past, slamming his heel down on the girl's fingers. Grace let out a scream, curling up into the fetal position, clutching her hurting hand, crying and screaming.

He immediately rushed over to Grace, having her sit up and checked her fingers. "Oh no." He noticed that they were starting to bruise, so he kissed them and hugged her. "Shush, hey it's okay Grace. I'm here," He whispered and stroke her head, making sure that she was okay. As he held her, he sent the most intense, brutal death glare at the boy that had done this to her.
She whimpered, burying her face into Karsci's shirt, uninjured hand clenching into the fabric, continuing to cry. The workers had hurried out at hearing Grace's ear-piercing scream, two taking the boy inside for the owner to go at for harming the youngest orphan present, with one watching Grace and Karsci nervously. "Sir? Should I grab the first-aid kit?" She asked hesitantly, ready to run for the kit.

"No no, it's okay," He said and pulled out his wand. "Gracie, it's gonna be okay alright? I just need to see your hand," He said and kissed her head softly. He gently touched the tip of his wand to her hand, letting the healing magic course through her. It was a minor injury, so it healed easily. "There, all better now," He told her with a smile.

"Yeah, inside," He picked her up easily and held her close, carrying her across the playground and inside the orphanage. Feeling bad about what happened, and wanting to get her out of there as soon as possible.
She whimpered, barely watching as the worker led the two to the nursery room that Grace slept in usually. "He's picked on her before... Broke her arm once before and ankle twice." The worker murmured to Karsci, "were her fingers broken? or just bruised?"

“Bruised and sprained, nothing some magic couldn’t fixed. Thankfully they weren’t broken, I don’t have that kind of healing magic,” he said and just sighed at that. “Is it possible for me to speak with the boy? With supervision of course from a worker,” he asked, not wanting this behavior to happen again.
She nestled into Karsci's arms, as he was led to the playmat, surrounded by toys and games alike for the youngest orphan. Grace slowly lifted her head, curious, and blinked, choosing between Karsci and the toys, but ultimately choosing Karsci, only curling closer to his heartbeat.

He just held Grace, but still spoke with the worker about the boy. After some time it was decided that Karsci wouldn't talk to the boy, he was upset but didn't let it show and just held Grace close. "You okay sweetie?" He asked her and glanced down at her small form.
She shrugged one-shoulder briefly, pressing into Karsci's chest even more as he sat down in the cushioned rocking chair. "Me guess... Not like here... W-W..." She was struggling to speak properly, like a big girl. "W-Wand-Want t-t-to-o..." Frustration building visibly on her face, she tried again. "W-Want t-to l-leave."

He just kissed her forehead at that, noticing her struggling. Me and Kamille will have to teach her how to talk properly, or put her into speech therapy. He thought. "Don't worry Gracie, you'll be leaving very soon." He told her, "I promise you that,"

He wanted to surprise her, but felt this was a good time to tell her. "Gracie. Me and my wife are going to adopt you, you're going to be our daughter," He told her with a smile. "You're going to be Grace Russell, and you're going to live with us,"
She smiled, first hesitantly, then more brightly as the words sunk in. "A-Adopti-Adoption?" Grace asked, stuttering over the words. Hearing Karsci's words, the workers silently high-fived, finally happy that the little one was getting a family of her own.

He nodded at that with a smile. “You’ll be ours in about one week, there’s some things that the adults have to do before you can be officially ours. But then you’ll be ours forever,” he said happily and kissed her forehead.
