That whole 'your pain is my pain' thing was serious, she realized suddenly, her heart twisting and her stomach dropping as she felt every curse and mutter bite through her like fangs. She was trying so desperately to pay attention to her cousin, to sort this whole mess out herself but it was admittedly very difficult at the moment. Not only was Scott hurt, bleeding even, but he was only half dressed and that was a little distracting in its own right, her eyes wandering for a second to his chest before shifting away quite suddenly, her mind fighting tooth and nail to remain focused on the situation at hand.
Because she really did feel bad for Melanie. The last they'd talked, Teagan had been devastated, depressed, outright despondent, and she had been so in the presence of the very person that made her feel that way to start with. Then she disappeared and stayed gone for hours without even a single text to let her cousin know that she was even alive. Teagan would have been just as worried and just as upset as Melanie surely was right now. She understood.
But focusing with Scott around wasn't a talent she had mastered yet. She still couldn't stop dropping little touches along his arms and hands, her fingers treading ground against the pulse of his wrist as she blinked at Melanie's question, her attention shifting back to her cousin as she tried to prepare herself for what she assumed was inevitable.
Because this was a lot to take in. Teagan wasn't oblivious to the fact, even if she'd had absolutely no problem processing it herself. At first she nodded in response, shifting her eyes back to Scott and frowning again at the blood that had already dried on his lips. "Yeah, yeah, of course, always." Unfortunately that response was just a tiny bit unfocused, her hand lifting intently to scrape away the remnants of his injury, her eyebrows raised up at him as if silently asking if he was okay.
If she wanted this talk to actually set in or make a dent at all, she'd probably have to ask Scott to leave herself. Whether out of obliviousness or sheer stubbornness, Teagan wasn't about to do it herself, nor was she really getting the hint that maybe this should have been a private talk.
