Default of Professor Culloden

As you enter the room, the first thing you see in the middle of the room is a hand-made Turkish carpet and nothing else. To the immediate right of the door stands a coat hanger for four coats a time, and you are expected to hang your coat there before fully entering the room. Professor's desk and two chairs in front of it are located at the right end with three pictures hanging from the wall, and his bookcase and 'emergency potions' shelves with a representational potion brewing set are located at the left end of the room. The walls are painted light blue.

The desk and visitors' set look expensive, and they indeed are. They are from genuine mahogany, all cut from the same wood. There is usually a big pile of papers hastily arranged at the farther side of the desk, and you will always see a potion phial and a book on the more organised side. Behind it is his office chair, and in front of it are two comfortable looking armchairs with a coffee table between them. You'll find a bowl of sweets that is filled with cheering up potion that will last for approximately three hours. Go on, take a cherry, apple, orange or lemon flavoured. Be careful not to take the last lemon though, because they are his favourite.

To the right side of the wall behind the desk hangs a picture depicting a Mardin, Midyat house with smiling kids sometimes singing a song and sometimes playing a game. To the left is a painting depicting Afghanistan with an old wizard at the centre of it. He is brewing a mysterious potion and will be more than happy to speak to you in Persian, but he just smiles upon asking about what he is doing. He was a respected wizard of Afghanistan, and Professor Culloden paid a fortune for the painting, so act accordingly. Beneath them in the middle hangs a picture of Borneo rainforests with birds and insects. If you are lucky, you will be treated with a birds lullaby and if you are unlucky, the insects will drill your brains with their buzzing sound.

The middle is only occupied by a handmade Turkish rug. While you may step on it, you will land yourself in detention faster than you can say 'potion' if those shoes are muddy or wet.

At the other end of the room is a bookcase full of books about potions, both muggle and magical plants and animals. Don't be surprised if you see your professor's name on 3-4 of them. Depending on how much he likes you, he may lend them to you.

On the shelves next to the bookcase stands his golden, representational potions brewing set and a few phials full of different potions. Along with the carpet and pictures, the set is his most prized possession.

If you can find him in his office, you are 'okay' to pay a visit.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Kevin sneered at the mug of water…yes the mug… and when he looked back at the Professor and saw him glaring down at him he narrowed his eyes back until he looked away eventually. He huffed something under his breath as he folded his arms over each other. His mouth felt really dry and he needed to drink something but he wasn’t stupid! He wasn’t going to drink anything from a potions master. Especially not him because even though they have been on a pretty good terms lately, he still did not trust him. Actually he trusted no one, so no hard feelings. He would go to the Great Hall once he was gone from here.

He had heard that snicker and he glared at the man again. He hated it when people did that when he had said something, it made him feel like he was being ridiculed or something. “MY TONE!? You stop with your stupid toooone” he scoffed, getting more annoyed by the second."And really? detention? is that suppose to scare me?" he rolled his eyes.

UGH he NEEDED something to drink. He didn't care anymore he just needed the water so he abruptly stood up and walked to the desk to grab the mug.

Buuuuuuut then the moment passed, and Toby decided against it quite emphatically. In fact, now that he had a little more info, it might be better to get off the subject, in case he said too much. Luckily, Toby was a well-practiced pro at diverting conversations, though he wasn't nearly as subtle about it as he liked to believe he was.

"That makes sense," he said, and smiled again. "I'll keep that in mind, for my reading and stuff."

With that, Toby reached into his pocket and pulled out a folded up piece of parchment that had seen better days. He kept hold of it and just fiddled with it as he moved briskly on to the next topic of conversation. "There was something else too, Professor. D'you remember last year? With the Un-Felix Un-Felicis thing? You sent a note about brewing a potion with you, and I took a rain check on it 'til after my OWLs." Just refreshing his memory a little. As he spoke, Toby gestured to the parchment now in his hand, the very letter he was talking about. And the subject was changed, just like that.

Cosgrach trustes Toby enough not to question it further. He knew the boy was responsible and wouldn't take the potion on his own, so no need to worry, he really was just going to read about it. Instead, he smiled and nodded, then turned his attention to the parchment.

"Of course I remember," he said, "have you decided what potion you want?"

Cosgrach... was too amused to keep glaring, so he gave up and focused on not LAUGHING instead. For once in his life, he didn't mind the insults, but keeping his posture, he nodded as scarily as he could. "It is," he said, and would have added some more, but Kevin got up to DRINK the VERY water he'd just refused.

Not gonna laugh nope nope nope.

Holding the mug of water in his hand, Kevin leaned against the desk and sighed when the Professor was being all scary. He first drank the water as if he hadn't had anything to drink in a few days and when he placed the mug down on the desk, he wiped his mouth with his jacket sleeve. Muuuuch bett---no. "WHY is my mouth still dry?!" he asked out loud in an even more annoyed tone than before "You did something to me , didn't you!?" he pointed his finger at him and narrowed his eyes.

"Well, it doesn't" he snapped back, getting more and more agitated by every single thing and he sat on the desk while grabbing another sweet from his jacket pocket and ate it. "Besides, I doubt you'll ever be as scary as Cat Man" Now Quigley, HE had been intimidating. And he felt no shame admitting that because everyone knew that.

His own eyes flicking back to the parchment, Toby unfolded it and looked through the list that was written on it again.

"I... don't really know," he admitted, and pulled an indecisive face as he stared at the parchment. "See, I'd like to brew that De-Aging one, 'cause that sounds fun to brew and fun to test out, too, right?" Toby glanced up to check for a reaction. "But it looks sorta easy compared to... well... the Polyjuice Potion. That looks way more challenging, and I'd like to give that a go, and it would be best to do that with you, as you're a pro and all. And then try the other one on my own one day." He wasn't trying to flatter Culloden or anything. Even if Toby were the type to make it a habit of flattering his professors, he and Culloden were past that point. Nah. Just stating facts, really. "What d'you reckon?" Just a roundabout way of saying 'the Polyjuice Potion', really.

But then, Toby wouldn't really be Toby if he didn't get to the point only after a whole bunch of rambling, now would he?

Still, that De-Aging Potion sounded fun. He was determined to brew and test it, one day.

Cosgrach narrowed his eyes. He was hurt, you know? He didn't even KNOW why Kevin was accusing HIM. Did he really look like someone who would intentionally hurt a student? PFFFT. He glared at the boy, watched him eat another candy, and walked to sit down on the other arm chair. He wouldn't answer to the detention comments, but rather show him WHY he felt terrible.

"See this?" he asked calmly as he grabbed the now but-for-two-candies empty bowl, "you ate like 15 candies in the last 15 minutes and they had a cheer-up potion in them. So you poisoned yourself." He put it back and hurried before Kevin could say anything. "Just relax and wait for it to pass."

To be honest, Cosgrach didn't know WHEN it would pass. Oh well.

Still sitting on the desk, cause sitting in a chair was for normal people, Kevin looked at the almost empty bowl of candies that the Professor held up. See this? See what? "yeah....?" he carefully answered, a frown on his face and that frown deepened when he heard what he said next.

He had poisoned himself? ....poisoned....himself?

"..........What?" This was a joke right? WHY would he poison himself?! ...It took him a moment to realise what on earth was happening and when it dawned on him the Gryffindor gasped. "I POISONED MYSELF?!" He shouted and grabbed the mug again, filling it with water with the Aguamenti charm and drank it quickly. Ok ok, relax Kevin, just relax.

"I can never be a potioneer after this!" he sighed sadly and folded his arms over each other. And then something else got him thinking and he looked back at the Professor. "Wait....you didn't even TELL me that i was poisoning myself! You WANTED me to get poisoned, didn't you? " he glared at him. "You didn't even try to stop me , what? you enjoyed it or something?!" Well, actually..if the roles had been reversed he would have enjoyed it. But that was not the point now.

"This is great then," he said with a grin, "thank you." Excuse his somewhat dreamy expression, Lux, he was merely imagining how he'd be THE boss.
SNORT.

Lux got the feeling that Professor Culloden was pleased with the news though he was trying to hide it. Wanting money didn't make someone bad unless they did mean things in order to attain it...or once they had it. He wasn't the evil type, so there was nothing to worry about. "I'm glad I could give you good news, sir."

Now it was time for her to ask something else of him and he was always so willing to help her out. "I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions relating to the potion I am inventing." Or was he not giving assistance? Because if so...oops.

YEAH, Cosgrach wanted to yell but didn't, Kevin really had poisoned himself. So he smirked as the kid drank more water, and waited for him to process it.

"Kevin, pleeeeeeease," he said, "you ate the sweets at light speed. Why would I want a kid to poison himself in my office?" He wasn't stupid, very much unlike Kevin. So, he folded his arms and looked at the boy with a small smirk.

"Why did you even come, anyway?" Not to poison himself, truly?

EHEHEHE.

He smiled somewhat sheepishly. "Great news indeed!" he said, then focused on what she was saying.

"Of course," he said. She didn't even need to ASK. He was all ears.

Awww, he was so precious. Lux gave Professor the BIGGEST smile because he was so nice. He was also wonderful because he was going to let her ask him questions about the assignment. Some Professors might not have done that though all of them were nice besides Bellaire. Quigley she still wasn't sure about because sometimes he was nice and sometimes...not so much.

Okay, he had better be ready because she might end up overloading him with questions if she didn't keep herself in check. Hehe. "Well, I want to make the effects of my potion last for 24 hours and I was wondering what the most effective method to do so is. Like a certain spell or ingredient or whatever." She had looked through the books, but some of the stuff in there managed to CONFUSE her even though she was supposed to be a potions expert. Okay, she wasn't even close to the level that Culloden was on. BUT STILL.

Look at her being good and sticking with one question for the moment.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

…….Why would he want a kid to poison himself in his office?...good question and Kevin frowned before he clapped his hands once as if he had just gotten the most brilliant idea. “Because you’re a potions professor and maybe wanted to experiment a new potion and watch what happens?!” he said. “Cause i would do that if i was a potion master” he grinned. Mweh , no one had his humour.

The Gryffindor jumped off the desk and began walking around again because he couldn’t sit still, with the mug of newly added water in his hand and sipping from it now and then. At the Professor’s question, the boy turned around and sighed HEAVILY. “Ok so, i hate studying so my question is, is there a way to still become a potioneer without having to go to uni. Cause i heard i had to go there if i wanted to become a potioneer but studying and me does not go well”

Toby couldn't help but smile at that. It sounded like a pretty good deal to him. And his grin widened further at that last part.

"That sounds great to me, sir," the Hufflepuff replied with a nod. "I'll tell you-" He seemed to realise at this moment that they they were meant to be speaking almost conspiratorially, and quickly lowered his voice, "-before I try them."

Ahem. Nice. So. That was a plan then. He and Culloden could spend time brewing the potion together, and it would be pretty good to spend time with the professor, especially doing what the dude was a literal pro at.

...which was EXACTLY why Kevin would never get to teach potions.

"Unlike you, I'm not so cruel," he said in a somewhat amused tone, and cocked his head to the side. He was going to admit that this was too much fun to be concerned, though. His body would process the excess potion peacefully anyway. Or, y'know... depending on how much he let himself be annoyed.

HEHEHEHE.

Cosgrach didn't move from the armchair, but watched him. Uh oh. Was Kevin in some sort of trouble - OH, haha.

"I can, yes," he started cautiously, "but you have to study even more, then, because in university you are taught. However, on your own, you'd have to learn by yourself." Could Kevin perceive the difference? "So I'm sorry, but to be great, you have to." Otherwise, he'd just be someone who worked in a lab.

Hard facts of life.

Ahem. Nice. So. That was a plan then. He and Culloden could spend time brewing the potion together, and it would be pretty good to spend time with the professor, especially doing what the dude was a literal pro at.

Cosgrach grinned at him, then, and clapped his hands once as he leaned back.

"Great, indeed!" He paused. "But you know, we have to start 3 later, because I need to stew Lacewing flies." Sounded good?

NICE. Everything was a go, and Toby was pretty psyched to be able to brew this potion with Culloden like he'd wanted to since getting the letter. He smiled a genuine smile and nodded hurriedly to show he understood.

"That's fine, sir. Makes sense and all," he replied, nodnodnod. He checked his watch, the one he'd got as a seventeenth birthday present from Ella, just out of habit. "I can meet you in the Potions lab later then yeah?" Pretty exciting stuff, wasn't it? Well... to Toby at least.

This year only kept bringing worse and worse. So he did the only thing he could: shut-down.

Even the words of Sophie Brown couldn't lift him up right now. He wasn't okay. He wasn't going to be okay. None of this would ever be okay. He didn't even know why Sophie insisted to go to Culloden. What could the man even do? He did give her a small nod though because he knew he wouldn't be alone. There were plenty of others... Sort of. He was having a hard time thinking of them, but he knew there were others. He just didn't want to think right now. He couldn't. Thinking hurt too much because then he'd have to think about what it'd mean to have to go through the day knowing that his best mate wasn't here. And that was absolutely horrible.

She didn't reach for any of the potions because she wanted Culloden to pick whichever ones he thought would be best and do what he needed to do, but she scrutinized each and every label before turning to look at both of them.

They needed the sofa. Could they bring the sofa in the office? She thought about asking, 'cause Zander probably needed to sprawl out and get comfortable. They could counsel him better that way and it'd be like a cute little therapy session.

"I also offer myself up as comic relief. If that'll help." Whatever that meant to them, she'd do it. Anything to make Zander smile.

You know what was a tell tale sign that things were off? The fact that he didn't even so much as scrunch his nose at being called 'Zandy'. Like WHAT? See, definitely something was off. Well, if that hadn't already been apparent with the fact that he wasn't doing any talking whatsoever. Just a lifeless life-form in the shape of Zander Adair. That's what he was at the moment. It was easier this way though, the shutting off. Meant he didn't have to think about things because things were the last he wanted to think about.

He wouldn't have even brought himself into the office had it not been for the gentle tug from one Sophie Brown, but she managed to pull him inside to where he made the decision to sit on the nearest armchair. Not that he really had much of a say in this whole decision making thing, actually. He didn't even look over at Sophie all curiously as she searched the potions shelf. He just sort of found a nice, interesting looking place on the ground. Actually, no it wasn't interesting at all, but he was still going to stare at it.

He only lifted his head to shake it at Sophie's offer. No, he didn't feel like laughing right now. And back to the ground his eyes went. What was he doing here? And could a potion really fix what he was feeling inside, right now?

This was terribly, very wrong, and Cosgrach didn't even KNOW what to do. He didn't even think Zander would laugh again, which was absurd, actually. Kevin wasn't dead! He was just... expelled. The man bet they would see each other in Hogsmeade and stuff. He had Sophie to have his back now. What was the deal?

...

The deal was, Zander'd lost a friend. Cosgrach knew the feeling - that nothing would be the 'same'. Kevin was exluded from Hogwarts, and Zander had lost his best friend, period. The man sighed. "The cheer up potion is in the sweets," he said, and offered the bowl to Zander. If he didn't eat by his own consent, Cosgrach was ready to force it down.

"We can talk about him if you want. Or we can tell funny stories. Or... hug or something. To show ya you aren't alone and have other friends." What did he want?

Zander was dead inside, Sophie noted, and wished the boy would say something, but there was no life behind his eyes - no, he looked like the world had ended.

Helpless, Soph looked to Culloden for guidance.

Of course, she knew that there was cheer-up potion in the sweets, but... wasn't there something STRONGER they could use? More effective? She chewed her bottom lip softly, unsure of what to say or do, but when Culloden continued talking, Soph nodded a few times and crossed to sit on the arm of the fancy armchair Zander was sitting in. "Yeah. And you can cry, too, if y'want. Everyone cries. I've seen this nerd here cry like twenty times in the past few years," she grinned, her eyes flickering up to meet Culloden's briefly but falling back down to reside on Zander again. "You're in good company. Not alone," she reminded again, reaching to encouragingly take hold of one of Zander's hands. "Y'can do and say anything y'want."

If he started breaking stuff in a rage, she would personally repair it all, so Culloden didn't have to worry. Heh.

Toby gave a single nod.

"Cool, thanks," he said, tucking his folded up parchment away back into his pocket now that it had served its purpose. He sat there for a second and drummed his fingers on the arms of the chair, looking as though perhaps he was about to say something else. But a moment passed, and then another, and then Toby was standing, instead. "I'll see you soon, then, sir."

An awkward pause, where Toby was pretty sure they were done talking and he could go, but Culloden hadn't actually said so out loud, so it felt impolite to just head for the door.

...

"I'll just go then."

Cheer up potion in the sweets? Zander gave his Potion's Professor a very skeptical look at the offering, making sure to glance over at Sophie too. Should he take them though? ... Wouldn't that be cheating? He wouldn't actually be happy, it'd all just be the-- You know what? He was going to do it anyways. He hated this sinking feeling. So what if it was cheating his feelings just a bit, anything for momentary relief. It was his only option. So Zander took a small handful, though he only popped two small pieces into his mouth.

And already he was feeling a bit better. But only a bit.

"I-uh-I know I'm not alone... I get that," he slowly took his eyes off the floor too. It was probably the potion getting him to talk some, but at least he was talking? Not much light behind his eyes still, that would take time. Or maybe a few more of these cheer-up sweets? Maybe. "I was just SO caught up in my own mess of things that I forgot to check in with him. He thought I was avoiding him for the past few months. Some best friend I was." So maybe he felt guilty? But more than that, just plain upset.

"It's just-- I don't know... It's stupid, but it's not going to be the same without him here." Understatement of the century, by the way. The Gryffindor felt his eyes doing the watering thing and he almost immediately wiggled his hand out of Sophie's rub his eyes. He wasn't going to cry. He was being emotionless, remember?

Darn sweets loosening him up.

She had looked through the books, but some of the stuff in there managed to CONFUSE her even though she was supposed to be a potions expert. Okay, she wasn't even close to the level that Culloden was on. BUT STILL.

Cosgrach didn't answer right away, but thought about her potion. He had a great memory when it came to potions stuff, so he didn't need to check her ingredients list again. Instead, he said "Your potion wouldn't cause any side effects," he said, "so the only problem with it would be the overeating." He couldn't help but smile. Hehe. "Of course, we won't know for sure, but, I think it'll suffice to drink one more dose when it wears off." So, no extra ingredient or something to add. However...

"I think it's better if we replaced dragon horns with a piece of kneazle tongue. Dragon horn has no... effect in what you want." He made an apologetic face. Although it was 'cool', it would only poison it. "Cats, however, are picky when it comes to food and we want the perception of tongue anyway." So... all set?

For once, Cosgrach didn't try to correct Sophie but let Zander know that he had cried a lot. These weren't normal times, and Zander needed comfort more than anything else, and see? He was even eating the sweets! Cosgrach put the bowl back on the coffee table, and gestured at the armchair if Zander wanted to sit down. Or, his throne, even.

Zander started to talk, however, so the man focused solely on him.

Oh.

"His expulsion isn't your fault, Zander," he said slowly, because Zander had to see that. "Kevin has always been... troublesome. I do think he made some progress," he did, he did, "but it wasn't enough. You can accuse yourself for not being a good friend," honestly, Cosgrach didn't know how their friendship worked, "but don't you ever think he's expelled because he felt lonely." Got it? As for the 'same' issue, why, maybe it would be better?

Cosgrach felt like the boy was debating saying something, but then he got up. Okay. It wasn't like Cosgrach wouldn't see him again, so Cosgrach got up too. Sure, Toby was socially his inferior and he didn't need to get up while he boy walked out, but it felt impolite. Besides, Toby wasn't some arrogant brat to misunderstand it. Yeah. "See you later," he said, smiled, and moved to sit on his throne as he walked out.

Okay. OKAY. NOW Toby felt better about leaving, and not like he was just walking out or whatever. He smiled back and gave Culloden a little salute not unlike the kind he afforded Airey, and headed on to the door.

Aaaaaand then he was gone. With the wind. Or something.

"Of course, we won't know for sure, but, I think it'll suffice to drink one more dose when it wears off." So, no extra ingredient or something to add. However...

"I think it's better if we replaced dragon horns with a piece of kneazle tongue. Dragon horn has no... effect in what you want." He made an apologetic face. Although it was 'cool', it would only poison it. "Cats, however, are picky when it comes to food and we want the perception of tongue anyway." So... all set?
...Why wasn't he answering her?

Lux was beginning to wonder if she had asked a dumb question when the Professor answered. Phew. She didn't want to look silly in front of a GENIUS potion master.

No side effects, gotcha. She hadn't been TOO sure about that, because she wasn't as well-versed when it came the the more mundane of ingredients. She was really proud of herself at how much better she had become at the whole science, and next term they would brew more potions together which was exciting.

In her notebook, she recorded everything that he told her though she was amused when he brought up the dragon horns. "I admit that I only added those to the list because DRAGONZ." Hehe. Call her silly, but she liked dragons. No effect was better than a bad effect, right? "Noted change. Thanks, Professor. I hadn't thought of adding the kneazle tongue." Duh, it was so obvious looking back on it.

Since she was running lower on time, Lux decided to cut things short so she would ask ONE more question unless anything he told her made her come up with other ones. "I was also wondering for the amounts... is it best to stick with a number like seven for the mundane ingredients, and use a less powerful number for the magical ones?" Honestly she didn't know much about numbers and power, but she did know that seven was MAGICAL.

She did not have a book to read at the moment, so all Nicole did as she waited for the Professor was to stare at the closed door. Soon, he arrived at the Waiting Area, not from inside the office, but from the Dungeon Corridor. She stood up when she saw him and smiled back.

Nicole wondered where the Professor had been, but did not think about it much as she greeted him. "Hello, Professor," she said. She walked into the Office as told and looked around. Everything looked cool, especially the Turkish carpet in the middle of the room. Then, she turned her attention to the Professor again. "How are you doing, Professor?" she asked. The Ravenclaw pulled another one of the large chocolate sweets out from her bag. "Would you like a Chocoball?" she offered.

So what if it was cheating his feelings just a bit, anything for momentary relief. It was his only option. So Zander took a small handful, though he only popped two small pieces into his mouth.

And already he was feeling a bit better. But only a bit.

"I-uh-I know I'm not alone... I get that," he slowly took his eyes off the floor too. It was probably the potion getting him to talk some, but at least he was talking? Not much light behind his eyes still, that would take time. Or maybe a few more of these cheer-up sweets? Maybe. "I was just SO caught up in my own mess of things that I forgot to check in with him. He thought I was avoiding him for the past few months. Some best friend I was." So maybe he felt guilty? But more than that, just plain upset.

"It's just-- I don't know... It's stupid, but it's not going to be the same without him here." Understatement of the century, by the way. The Gryffindor felt his eyes doing the watering thing and he almost immediately wiggled his hand out of Sophie's rub his eyes. He wasn't going to cry. He was being emotionless, remember?

Darn sweets loosening him up.

Zander started to talk, however, so the man focused solely on him.

Oh.

"His expulsion isn't your fault, Zander," he said slowly, because Zander had to see that. "Kevin has always been... troublesome. I do think he made some progress," he did, he did, "but it wasn't enough. You can accuse yourself for not being a good friend," honestly, Cosgrach didn't know how their friendship worked, "but don't you ever think he's expelled because he felt lonely." Got it? As for the 'same' issue, why, maybe it would be better?

Sophie smiled when Zander gave in and started eating the sweets, giving Culloden a hopeful, relieved look, but her expression grew concerned once more when the Gryffindor started talking. Ohhhhhhhhhhh no - no, no, NO. He was NOT blaming himself - ohhhh yes he was. Sweet Merlin. Soph was glad Culloden argued against that and nodded reassuringly, rubbing the back of Zander's hand she was holding soothingly.

"Yeah," she agreed gently, her gaze down at their hands. "Kevin's always had his own slew of problems, y'know that. His back-talk to professors... his arrogant, rude, careless demeanor... his attitude problems and his selfishness and how he forgot his own best friend's birthday..."

...Oh. Awkward. She hadn't meant to insult Zander's best friend - okay, yes she had - but she quickly added on, "But I know despite all his problems, he means a lot to you, and... and he was making progress and trying and... you were seeing changes in him. And that hurts, m'sure, that you got to see the good in him and see that there was more to him than the attitude he gave off in classes and stuff." There was a pause, and then, "But if you were the same kind of friend to him as you are to me, there's no way you were a bad friend to him, Zanderpander. You're the best friend. S'not your fault. Not even a little."

If anything, Kevin didn't even deserve a friend like Zander. But... luckily, this time Sophie had enough sense not to verbalize that thought.

It.... It wasn't that he exactly blamed himself... Actually, maybe he did a bit. He was having a hard time keeping his thoughts straight at the moment though, so nothing really was making much sense. And surely that much was evident as he struggled to explain everything. Words were hard. He looked up again at his Potion's Professor as the man tried to talk some sense into him. Kevin did make progress. He absolutely made progress. Why was that much so hard for everyone else to see?

And then Sophie Brown happened and that shut Zander up for a good bit.

"That's the thing. No one even gave him a chance," the Gryffindor took a deep breath, letting his gaze fall back down to the ground again. Maybe he should've had more of the sweets? He wasn't even sure what he was upset about anymore. A combination of everything maybe? Like when you go through the day and everything just builds up on top of each other and all the sudden you start crying because you ran out of butterbeer. And then everyone thinks you're ridiculous because you're crying over a mug of butterbeer, when really you're just upset about everything else and the butterbeer was just a tipping point. Like that. Except, he wasn't crying over butterbeer and he wasn't even crying, well, yet anyways.

It was everything. Constant nightmares bringing him back into the forrest, watching Gregoire. The expulsion of one of his best friends. Missing his family. Getting the badge taken away. Getting it back without much explanation. Everything.

Feeling his eyes starting to betray him, he quickly reached his hand (the one that Sophie didn't have in her hold) up to them and rubbed a bit. Effectively making the redness even worse, but it did help him in holding back any tears. "I tried to always have his back and he always had mine. And now he's gone. And I don't even know what he's going to do anymore."
