A owl would deposit a letter for Ashley.

"Dear Ashley,
I realized that I never properly thanked you for what you did for me while we were at Mary's. If you hadn't stepped in when you did... Well, yeah. I'm still not on board with Transfiguration as a method of disguise, and I'm still not your biggest fan for what you did to Lily. But I know when to thank people for what they've done for me. So thanks.
Renee"

Luca stood outside, hesitation on his face. He wasn't even sure if he was in the right place. What if she doesn't want me here, though? Pushing the thought aside, he knocked on the door and waited.

She opened the door a bit cautiously, then opened it completely when she saw who it was, a surprised look on her face. Her hair was tousled, framing her face like a lion's mane. "Hi, Luca."

She smiled at the gesture, feeling quite comfortable in his beanie. If the relationship was this new and they were already discussing adopting a kid, she might as well talk to him about Lily. "That woman Lily I was impersonating before? I was impersonating a real person- my best friend. And she passed away a few days ago."

Hearing Ashley's words made Luca smile. "When I was put in an orphanage, I had a friend. He was older than me by five or six years, but it didn't matter. We were close, considering we shared a room. I had another friend, closer to my age, who had lost his family, and thus was placed in the orphanage. The older one told the younger one: "Those who avoid talking about those who have died, fearing that to do so is a threat to their happiness or well-being, have much to learn. Remembering our Beloved Dead expands our hearts and our lives, making us bigger and not smaller. And the irony is that avoidance prevents us from truly living, making everything around us contract and atrophy." His smile faltered. "He stole the quote from Dr. Joanne Cacciatore. I'm sure that Lily would want you to move on, love. Aside from that, there's nothing that will make you feel better besides speaking about it and giving you hugs."
