I'll take every moment I can

Emilian smiled when the Headmaster insisted her call him James. Well at least now he didn’t have to call him Sir, which reminded Emilian of his father. Yet, Emilian noticed when the shirt had come to a final resting place the Headmaster seemed a bit put off. Had James just been checking him out? Of course not! Emilian was sure James was straight just as he was.

Emilian frowned when James said he should be going, but was instantly brought to a smile when James said there was something he could help with. Emilian froze a bit when James moved towards him but relaxed when the Headmaster went over to closer to the plants. Emilian had wondered if the older man had seen the scars.

Emilian smiled when the Headmaster confided in him that he didn’t have a green thumb and neither did he want to kill the plants. Emilian thought for a moment and held up a finger.

She’s young so she’ll learn quickly what kind of stuff you enjoy talking about.” Emilian’s favorite had to be kept in his private room away from anyone because that flower knew all of Emilian’s deepest secrets, including what the wands on his wall meant. The only good thing was that his flower spoke French and not many people knew that around here.

“Would you like her, James?” Emilian asked. “Or would you prefer something quieter?”
