Who: Emmeline, Fabian
Where: Emmeline's apartment, Hogwarts grounds, Hogwarts Castle
When: 27 December, starting at 0743AM
What: Fabian is the auror moving Emmeline from her home to Hogwarts after the dissappearance of her mother, Jane Vance.

Fabian stood outside the Vance residence, staring at his watch while his loosely fisted hand hovered just over the door. He had arrived fifteen minutes previous, and had spent those minutes trying to look casual as he guarded the door. As time ticked down to 0743AM, Fabian rubbed at small scratches and scrapes on the gold, and wondered about the large dent near the wrist band. He couldn't remember how the watch had gotten so beat up, when he himself was fine.

At precisely 07:43:00, Fabian knocked shortly on the door, rapping three times before letting his hand drop to his side. Gideon's gift (warm earmuffs) was placed firmly over his ears, and the auror was also wearing the gloves and scarf he had gotten from Caradoc, as well as a jacket that Fabian had had for many years.

He counted the seconds, deciding to knock once more, before getting too worried about the poor girl inside.

Emma had been curled up on the couch in the living room for most of the night, the owl she'd been sent in her hand. She didn't think she'd be able to sleep, but in fact, she'd dozed on and off most of the night, waking with a start and looking around, everything that had happened crashing down around her only moments later. The result was a tear-stained face and red, slightly puffy eyes. She had one bag packed on the floor in front of her and Izzie was curled up at her feet.

The knock on the door startled her and made her jump, Izzie meowing loudly in protest of getting shoved by her feet. "Mum?" she said softly. No, her mother wouldn't knock. It must be that Auror. Sniffing and wiping at her face, she walked to her door, looking through the peephole to see a relatively young man standing there, black and white earmuffs on. She opened the door enough so that she could close it if she needed to. This whole thing was making her a little paranoid. "Can I help you?" she asked, voice worn and tired.

07:44:06. As he allowed in his mental schedule, there would be a seven and a half span of time in which to to arrive at Hogwarts station with Emmeline.

Fabian tried to keep his voice from being 'auror-y' and offical as he smiled at her through the small open space. "Hello, Emmeline? My name is Fabian Prewett. I trust that you recieved my letter?" He made no attempt to move towards the door, quickly reconizing her expression from the faces of family and co-workers, if not occasionally from himself.

She nodded slowly. "Come in," she said, opening the door a little more, but still remaining behind it. Emma wiped at her eyes again, moving on automatic now. "Would you like some tea?" There were half filled tea cups all over the living room. Apparently making tea was her way of attempting to calm down, even if it didn't always work.

Isabella came forward at the new person. There had been a lot of new people in and out of the apartment and Izzie greeted each one the same way: cautiously stepping forward and sniffing at them. Most she liked enough to allow them into her home. Fabian, so it seemed, was her favorite so far and she favored him with a nuzzle against his ankle.

With a smile, Fabian bent down to run his fingers over the top of the kitten's head. "I'll pass on the tea," he said, for once in his life. While he would have loved a cup, there wasn't really time to enjoy it. "But thank you. Who is this wonderful creature?" He asked Emmeline, cooing soft compliments to the kitten at his foot.

She had been picking up tea cups here and there, putting them in the sink. Emma glanced over her shoulder, the first hint of a smile to grace her face since her mother hadn't come hom. "Isabella. Well, I call her Izzie because when I got her, Isabella was far to large a name for something so small. But Hogwarts seems to have bulked her up a bit." Izzie meowed appreciateively, clearly enjoying the attention.

"Hogwarts has a tendency to do that," Fabian said with a soft smile in her direction. "I suspect that she'll grow into it, like most of us with unusual namings." With one last scratch under the kitten's chin, Fabian helped Emmeline pick up the scattered dishes. Even though it was quite an useless question, he asked, "How are you doing?"

"I keep expecting her to walk through that door." Emma swallowed and took more dishes to the sink. For a moment, she stood there, back to him, letting the sink fill. "Do you..." Her voice caught in her throat. "Do you think she's okay?" she asked softly, turning to look at him.

For a brief moment, Fabian thought to say yes. He thought of what he would have wanted to hear, in her position, and what he would have needed to hear.

"I don't know," Fabian said steadily. He set the dishes in the sink carefully. "I know that's not what you want to hear, but I don't want to tell you something that isn't true."

Emma leaned against the sink. He'd been honest with her and had she been thinking she would have been grateful. But at the moment, all she could feel was fear and guilt. Her mother was in god knows where and she could do nothing about it. A single tear rolled down her cheek.

The sink was filling and she shut off the water. "I'm sorry," she said with a sniff. "Would you mind if I just finish these? I don't want her to come home to a mess." Emma looked over her shoulder at him again, now closer than he'd been before.
