He spoke a moment too late, as he caught a pair of trousers thrown back at him and quickly tossed them aside upon realizing what they were. Waiting too long to speak was never a good thing, since who knew what Evan might have thrown behind him next. He shrugged nonchalantly at the question, because honestly, he had little idea? "Uh.... the washer? Hope it's not your homework" Although if Evan was like his sister, he'd probably just do it over instead of wasting this effort. Okay seriously... where would he look for something?

"I just mean well, maybe it's right in front of you. So like, you know how if you wear glasses and put them on top your head... you ask where your glasses are, forgetting they're on your head. So like, try in the obvious places?"
Apollo was... not wrong there, he certainly would have just re-done his homework. But the particular item he had lost, he was fairly certain he would be unable to recreate. And he also didn't want to admit that it was gone to any other interested parties. So... searching he would have to do. Which wasn't too terrible, considering he didn't have much to do that day anyways. Outside of perhaps homework, which the seventh year and his new laissez faire attitude had zero interest in working on.

It was on the tip of his tongue to quip back that those were all places that were expected, thus disapproving Apollo's theory. But before the words passed his lips, Evan stuffed them down realizing he would have just been taking out his annoyance on himself on the Gryffindor, which was not fair. While the Ravenclaw had concerns, he didn't dislike the boy - so there was no reason to make him feel like he was already dead set against him. Not to mention if he did that, he would be on receiving end of Maya's ire. A spot which he generally did not relish having. "... Right. Washing machine is probably a good idea. The Ravenclaw boys baskets are proving fruitless."

Making an effort, he moved over towards some of the machines to peer in, before pausing again. "What brings you down here? Are you one of those who prefers to wash your own?"
