The bedroom is sort of a wreck though it looks more like it was ransacked and everything looked through at one time more than like it was generally kept this way. Some of the clothes out on the floor are Hufflepuff robes in a style worn decades ago at Hogwarts. There's a Slytherin crest hung prominently on the wall but all around it posters of bands and quidditch teams popular forty years ago are hung. There's a large bookshelf stuffed with textbooks and other books used for school and research. There's also a small desk with tons of notes and research on a wide variety of magical topics most of which are very in depth or were innovative at the time. The wallpaper and decorations are clearly from another decade and despite the dark coloring the bright lights still make it feel comfortable somehow. Overall the room feels like somewhere someone lived and spent a lot of their time before having left quickly and it being completely overturned in the aftermath.
She 'd take a few moments, calming a bit then pull away slightly, her voice trembling. "Octavia's dead."

The news caused her to take a few physical steps backward. Her heart was pounding, and she felt sick. "Octavia. How? When?" The words were hollow with shock. Octavia was an Auror. That... wasn't supposed to happen.
She'd swallow hard. "I was supposed to meet her tonight. We'd been working on looking into some things with the Minister. When I got to where we were supposed to meet I found her lying on the ground, dead."

Her heart twisted with fear. "Rose, if they found her, that probably means they know you, too," she said, her voice trembling slightly. "Who else have you told?"
She'd shake her head. "Nobody. This was ten minutes ago...I came straight here."

She let out a slow breath, trying to piece together logic and a plan. "You have to let the Department Head or another Auror know... a death--" she squeezed her eyes shut, trying not to get too emotional. "Is still a death. They need to know, especially given that it was one of their own."
She'd shake her head. "I don't want to involve Mom. Dad...maybe I could talk to someone I saw that I think works in the Law Enforcement Department." She'd check her watch. "...but it's almost midnight so...maybe not tonight?"

She hesitated, feeling like it should be reported now. "If you do it now, there's likely to be less people around. So your conversation is going to be more private." She chewed on her lip. "I'd offer to go with you but..."
She'd shake her head quickly. "No...no I don't want to risk you too." She'd finally start buttoning up her coat getting ready to head back out.

She'd almost hoped Rose would have agreed to that. She'd been in here for the better part of a year. It wasn't Azkaban, sure. But it was still miserable. "Come right back when you're done if you need to."
She'd close her eyes and take a deep breath. "Yeah...maybe you're right." She'd open her eyes again. "So you've got dreamless sleep potion and earlier you mentioned Polyjuice...have you been brewing up potions here?"
Regan BlackRavenclaw Alumna -Three Broomsticks Waitress and Artist – 16:19, September 13, 2019 (UTC)
She hesitated. "Dreamless sleep ones, yes. Polyjuice, I noticed, was already here. Old Pure-blooded family... it's not out of the realm of possibility to be stocked, I guess."
She'd frown and wrinkle her nose slightly. "I can't imagine it would still be good after all this time. Potion's effects slowly weaken over time so...who knows what might happen if you drank a Polyjuice potions from years ago."

She shook her head. "You don't need to apologize. If you need to talk and process, we can. I'll to put on a pot of tea, if that's what you need." She was a hair surprised. She thought Rose was more of an internal processor.
