He came into the house, and sat down on the couch, setting his cane next to him. He set a stack of catalogs on the table-- merchandise from the store he'd need to look through and familiarize himself with.

He looked up and shook his head with a smile. "I only just got back myself."

Ooc: idk if you saw my messages on reddit. Did you wanna do a Hope/Ferlen follow up?

He stood and grabbed his cane and followed her, taking a seat at the table. "I got a job today."

Ooc: it can be off screen. That's fine.

"Quality Quidditch Supplies," he said with a smile. "Just up front at the registers. But it's full time, and it pays. And the longer I'm there, the more I can move up, I'm sure."

"For the most part," he said nodding. "What are you making? Can I help?"

He nodded. "How was your day?"

"So it's time for another trip?" He guessed.

He chuckled. "Why wouldn't it be okay?" He asked.

"Melinda, I hope you know by now that I'm fully capable of taking care of myself. I'll be fine."

"Are you wanting to make sure I'm okay... or that you're okay?" He asked gently.

"I'm glad you're excited," he said with a smile. "You should be. You've been cooped up in these same walls for far too long, honestly." He paused, then asked. "Have you even had a chance to use your Animagus form since you've found me?"

He nodded. "Then it sounds like an extended trip is exactly what you need."

He shook his head. "Of course not. Everyone needs alone time, some more than others. And in your case... you have a specific way that you take yours. I won't pretend that I fully understand it, but the fact that it's important to you is crystal clear. And I want you to get what you need."

 – 16:57, June 4, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded, but there was a confused look on his face. "Of course. But... I don't remember it being an issue before. Was it? So why would it become one?"

He chuckled. "While Brazil didn't go super well... what it taught me is that you need that. The traveling is your world, and your way to truly be yourself." He frowned. "And if I ever implied that I needed you around more... then I'm sorry."

"If it's an issue, then it's my issue. You would never tell me to work less or... do something I enjoy less, right? We might be in a relationship, but that doesn't give me a monopoly on your time. We still have things that we do separately from each other, for our own sanity. Asking each other to give that up, even in part? Doesn't seem healthy to me."

He nodded. "Alright." He reached out to grab her hands and slowly pulled her closer, until she was practically in his lap. "It's our issue. And I'll let you know."

He had more than wanted to kiss her. He let out a slightly defeated breath when she pulled away. "It smells wonderful."

He stood up and grabbed glasses. "I saw wine earlier... maybe that for our beverage?"

"Do you have that?" He asked looking back at her.

He opened the cabinet and found the bottle. "Is there a glass it's usually poured in? I admit it's pretty foreign to me."

He listened as he grabbed the cups and poured. "What's it taste like? Any similarity to other liquors? Or is it too unique to describe?"

Knowing how adventurous Melinda was with food and drink, that description was a welcome surprise. "Sounds lovely," he said bringing the glasses to the table.

OOC: I'm supporting a student on a field trip in the morning, and another student at a kindergarten carnival in the afternoon, so I might not be around as much today.

He nodded, sitting down. He picked up his fork and took a few bites before trying the sake. He nodded. "This is all really good."

He noticed how she deflected his praise, and downplayed it again, but chose not to mention it. "So where's your next trip?"

"How long will you be gone in Romania?" He asked. "I heard you mention that at Christmas."

Ooc: student who was supposed to do the carnival had a meltdown, so I might be able to post more this afternoon than previously expected. :)

 – 19:01, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Okay. I was afraid you were gonna leave me for the whole summer," he said jokingly.

OOC: I think more than anything it's cause the carnival was mostly outside and it's really warm and humid today. And with it being out of routine is hard too.

He nodded. "And even though he's young, it doesn't hurt to start making connections."

He nodded. "He strikes me as quieter than the rest of the bunch, so it's nice he has that good relationship with you."

"Sounds like someone else I know," he said, covering his grin with his cup as he finished his sake.




NewEric

"I was thinking more the bit about not being pushed around," he clarified.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 19:19, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He considered that and nodded. "Probably. I don't remember any of my siblings letting Emmett push us around."

He shook his head. "I... didn't know what her status was."

OOC: Jaye told me that she was killed off in the serial killers expansion?




NewEric

 – 19:31, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned, and didn't say anything for several minutes. "Was it my parents? Did they do something to her?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 19:34, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He let out a slow breath. "I suppose... all I can do is pray that it was swifter than what I endured."




NewEric

 – 19:40, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He put his arm around her as well. "With Emmett in Azkaban... I think Eliott is in America... but I'm not even certain of that. It's just... me." He let out a breath and shook his head. "Never would have expected that."




NewEric

 – 19:44, June 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah," he said. He cracked a little smile. "They're better people in general, too."

"Maybe," he said with a shrug. "Let me think on it."
