Guy talk in the library @ Gideon
Barty tried to focus on his transfiguration homework. Homework always calmed him. He could focus on work. Work didn’t involve other people and their confusing, difficult, infuriatingly impossible to predict actions. But he couldn’t focus tonight. Not when he kept glancing up every two second to see if Gideon was here yet. His palms were sweating so much he couldn’t hold onto his quill. His heart was pounding deafeningly in his throat. Was this really such a good idea? Barty would never admit it out loud but he was terrified of most older students. Then again Rodolphus had a way of making all older students have a bad reputation. Still… did Barty really have to do this?
Well there wasn’t time to back out now. Gideon had just walked in.
