He had enjoyed every moment and would always be grateful that Evan had asked him along. “They are. All kids are, if you think of it.” A very good thing for him to say given the fact that someday he’d have an entire Quidditch team. Well, Evan needn’t worry if he spontaneously combusted into an alpaca; Jude’d be there to take care of him. Chuckling softly, the Hufflepuff quipped, “Fabric, paper and all that jazz are not good for your stomach, my sweet-loving friend.” It was why Jude purposely carried carrots and apples with him: he was worried about Evan consuming the other stuff he had just mentioned.

That was exactly Jude’s point: them being in each other’s company would change drastically in the next year. Who knew if Evan would find that he liked being Jude-free in that time? Indeed a lot can happen in about 365 days. The sixth year didn’t expect Evan to have an answer to his dilemma or even words of comfort but it felt better to have his worry out in the open. In a way, it reminded him of Reagan and the dread she felt when Koen was about to be married and in turn have more time away from his other three siblings. He almost laughed at the sheer coincidence of his and Rea’s insecurities. Almost. Jude finally looked around at Evan upon hearing him speak again. He was silent again, processing the words. Honestly, he was surprised that he hadn’t started to tear up, being the empath that he was. He supposed it was because he felt so worried and hollow at the moment, not a single tear would form.

Evan would miss him? That… that was a surprise to hear him say but only because Jude was still getting used to the new Evan, the one that talked more about his feelings. In any case, Jude would miss him too. And all the studying they did. Not to mention their other hangouts. “I don’t doubt all that you just said.” Especially since Evan sounded so confident. “I know I’m being stupid by thinking like this.” Jude forced another laugh. “I’m sorry for putting this on you. I think I’m worried because you’re so important to me.” Then something else occurred to him. “If I feel like this in the future… is it okay if I tell you? Do you think I’d annoy you if I did?’’

Were kids all cute? Evan hadn't ever really thought that much on it, figuring kids wouldn't generally like him anyways. Kids, babies in particularly, seemed drawn to big personalities - or at least big expressions. That wasn't him, so he generally left the fawning in circumstances where applicable to his sisters or older brother. Jude's thoughtfulness for snacks for the animal version of him was very appreciated, as even the mention of things not being good for him had him wincing slightly. He hadn't wanted to worry anyone so he tried to be pretty discreet about his trips to the hospital wing for something for the constant dull pain in his abdomen. "All the sweets probably aren't very good for my stomach either when you think about it." His stash was looking rather large without the constant raiding he usually did.

"i wouldn't say you're being stupid by feeling something." And Jude's concern that he could be was what was most worrying to Evan, his own brow furrowed a bit. "And you don't need to apologize. For as many times as I've leaned on you, it's okay to need to talk sometimes too about things that are bothering you." And why in the world would he think he'd be annoying if he did so? "Did I annoy you when I talked?" It wasn't a real question, not something that he was concerned about because he knew Jude hadn't been annoyed. He was merely pointing out that it would be the same for him. Not an annoyance.
