Strolling along the way

He was walking around the edges of Hogsmeade village, something of the trapped animal about his demeanor. He hadn't left the grounds, or gone out of bounds in any meaningful way since his fight with Adela.

Even though he'd hardly spoken to her, he was trying to show her that he was trying to listen to what she'd said. Despite their only occasional conversations, he'd gotten into the habit of watching for her at meals. When he noticed she'd missed a meal, he'd taken to sending a parcel of food, primarily fruit, to her by owl. These packages always contained a note, comprised of simply the letter O, to ensure she was aware of where they'd come from. Other than that, he was trying not to make her feel trapped, while feeling like a trapped animal himself.

He kicked at a loose rock on the road, and lit a cigarette. He had a headphone in one ear, not enough to keep him from hearing people approach, but enough to give him something else to focus on. He took a drag, and sighed, his expression rather grim.
