I’m just worried about how that’ll make me look…
What do you mean? Tell them some bullshit excuse like you want more real world experience so you can be a better worker or something.
*She took his hand, shaking it to make the deal.* It always happens. There’s no way around it.
Damn we’re good. We should just be auror partners once you’re done training. We’d be unstoppable, and then maybe we’d actually get some missions.
Yeah… You’re right. I mean, atleast for a while.
I’m always right. It’s a trait I share with my sister. *He joked.* You could always defer their offer, or try to. See if they’ll hold it for you for a while. If you’re that valuable to them then I’m sure they’ll say yes.
Sounds good to me.
*He held out his hand to shake on it.* That’s the problem with trying to blackmail you. We’re too much alike and we always manoeuvre ourselves into a tie.
If you so much as even go near Trent with those ghastly pictures I will hex you.
Ah, I believe we have reached a stalemate. Here’s my offer. If you promise those photos will never be seen by Rose or Avy, I’ll promise that Trent will never see the ones I have.
No, you’re totally right. I… Thanks. For the Input.
You’re welcome, man. But in the end, what makes you happy is important too. And hey, with Ara as an auror and just the two of you, things will work out.
Would you? *She smiles* Oh, thank Merlin. Clara isn’t usually like this, I don’t know what’s gotten over her to run away.
Of course. It’s not too far. *He grinned back.* There’s a full moon coming up, maybe it’s that? All the animals around here seem to spook when there’s a full moon.
We both know I would. And I’d hold it over your head until we’re both old and grey and show it you your kids, and your kids’ kids. *He grinned cheekily.*
Oh goodness, Aid-…Aidrik, I’m so sorry about that. They were both such wonderful people, they didn’t deserve to die like that. I-I’m sorry.
Thanks. It was a while ago. I’ve kind of just accepted it at this point. No sense in hanging on to the past, right?
No. I can use these against you. I’m not giving up an opportunity like this. You, my dear Aidrik, are never getting these photos back.
Ara. *He glared at her.* Fine. I’ll just have to dig out all my blackmail material against you. Or owl mum to get some of the really good stuff.
