A random hallway - open to anyone

Evan didn't know where he was going. He had been in his dorm, and then he had left. Beyond that, all he knew was that the scenery in the halls of of the dungeons paled in comparison to his reflection in the lovely little mirror he was never without. His feet remembered turning some corners and walking up some stairs, but even they were a little distracted, encased in new blue leather shoes.

Big blue-grey eyes stared into themselves, then down down down the curve of his nose, then - oh! - what beautiful lips he had! If only he could kiss them, for real, without the cold, flat glass of reality pushing up against his face!

Suddenly - smash! The mirror collided with a stone pillar (one of the many things Evan had failed to see) and turned into a cracked mess. He didn't have to stare at the distorted version of his face for long before letting out a horrified scream.

Emma was walking down the hall to get Izzie a snack, the kitten trailing happily along behind her. She wasn't so small any more, but technically she was still a kitten. Suddenly there was a crash and a scream. Emma ran down the hallway to find Evan staring at something broken on the floor and realized the sound was coming from him. "Merlin, Evan, what's wrong? Are you okay?"

Evan touched his face frantically, making sure he wasn't all cracked and distorted.

"I thought I'd gone all weird looking, but the mirror just broke," he said, slumping against the wall with relief and exhaustion after that traumatic experience. "Sorry for startling you."

Emma sighed softly. "It's alright." Picking it up, she cast a quick Reparo and handed it back to him. "You're fine and now so is your mirror." Izzie darted forward to inspect Evan, sniffing at his shoe.

"Thanks so much," he said with a big smile, clutching his newly fixed mirror to his chest, still a little scared to look into it. He looked down to see Izzie taking an interest in his shoe. "Do you like them?" he bent down to talk to the kitten. "They're new."

Emma smiled. "You're welcome. Least I can do for a friend." She watched as Izzie looked at Evan when addressed, waiting to see her reaction. She pawed gently at his foot before leaping into his lap.

Evan smiled more at the friend comment. Sure, he loved his own company best, but it was always nice to find a new friend. Especially one that could fix mirrors. He almost leapt up in surprise when Izzie jumped on his lap. "Oh! You're a forward one, yeah?" he said, steadying himself into a more comfortable position. "But you're cute, so I'll forgive the audacity."

She laughed. "Yes, she is." Emma plopped down next to Evan. "Both cute and forward." Izzie settled herself in, deciding that she like Evan. She looked up at him with big eyes, wanting to be petted.

Evan laughed at those big eyes looking up at him. "Aw, you are cute, aren't you?" He obliged to her silent pleading and scratched her under the chin. "How old is she?" he asked Emma.

Izzie purred. "She's about ten months." Emma smiled softly. "She likes you, though."

"Then she's got good taste for a young one," Evan grinned, tickling Izzie more. It was strange, having this new creature encroaching well beyond his personal space, but it also made him feel warm inside.

Emma grinned and Izzie made herself comfortable in Evan's lap. It was always interesting to watch her interact with other people. She seemed to like her friends which was a very good thing to her. Izzie and her friends were really all she had left.

"You seem a lot happier than last time I saw you, which is good," Evan said as he examined Izzie's fur. It wasn't as sleek as his hair, he decided. "I take it everything's sorted?"

She smiled and leaned back against the wall, closing her eyes. "Everything's sorted. Reg and I are back together." She smiled softly, wishing that all her friends were as supportive as Evan seemed to be of the relationship she had with Regulus.

"I'm glad," Evan said. "You're better off happy, even if others don't agree with what you're doing, yeah?" Looking at Emma, she certainly seemed happy.

"Yeah," she agreed. "It would be nice if they did agree though..." She turned to look at Evan and Izzie seemed to be settling down in his lap for a while.

"It would. Sadly, people don't seem to be like that. There's always something wrong with what some person or other is doing, apparently," Evan said, petting Izzie's head. He wasn't just talking about Emma and Regulus, now.

She nodded. "Even if it's just as simple as wanting to come back to school," she murmured softly.

Evan turned to face her sharply. "There's someone that doesn't want you to be at school?" he said in disbelief. Not knowing the reason or what had happened to Emma's family, he only felt envy at this.

"My mum wasn't too keen on it when the school year started. She was worried because my aunt had been killed. She felt I'd be safer with her. We fought about it constantly." Emma wasn't really thinking about what she was saying and the fact that he didn't know her story. She was just letting it all out. "Then, Christmas, everything was good until she disappeared.

Most of Evan's envy drained out at that. "I'm so sorry," he said, putting an awkward hand on her shoulder. He felt like it was an insufficient way to comfort her, but didn't know what else to do, not being in this situation much before.

She shrugged and Izzie, sensing distress, abandoned Evan's lap for hers. She stroked her furr slowly. "I don't think they'll ever find her. It's just something I'm going to have to get used to." Emma offered him a soft smile, silently thanking him for at least listening. That was enough most days.

Evan was glad Izzie seemed to know what to do in this situation. He patted Emma's shoulder then withdrew his hand. "I hope they do find her," he said. "I lost my parents when I was a baby...but I never knew them so it doesn't really compare."
