No tears necessary

“You’re welcome. Glad I could be of assistance.” Liam laughed, if Sophie’s house was anything like his was growing up, she was very right. He didn’t have any kids of his own yet, (or nieces or nephews for that matter) but he’d spent a good amount of time around children when he’d worked as a magician for muggle birthday parties. Obviously it nowhere near compared to being a parent, but he was familiar with how irrational little ones could be, particularly when it came to not getting their way.

“Hey! I thought so! You probably don’t, I was like, a third year, I think, when you Quidditch Captain. I used to be in Pecari too. Forever ago it seems. I was a lot shorter back then. And fatter.” Liam smiled and put his hands in the pockets of his jeans, suddenly feeling some of that pre-teen awkwardness again. He’d made sure to choose his words carefully, he knew most women didn’t like to be reminded of their age, and though Sophie was only a few years older, he thought it best not to use the word old.

“O’Malley now though, huh, does that mean you’re related to Carrie?” He asked with wide blue eyes. It was no secret that Carrie O’Malley had been a rather unpleasant student, not that he’d really had much to do with her--thankfully. He couldn’t remember that much about any of Carrie’s siblings, as he had never really gone out of his way to learn more about her. Plus, back then, his social circle was basically a straight line between him and Aria. Somethings never change.

Liam smiled when Sophie revealed that she had two boys. “Excellent, well congratulations! And how thoughtful of them to see you off with a buddy.” He said, gesturing to her purse where the hippogriff toy was tucked away safely. “You must be very proud.” He rubbed the back of his neck as he considered her question about how well he was acclimating to his new position. “Office hours can be a little boring, and it’s definitely a bit weird being here again, and not getting to see my girlfriend as often as I’d like, but overall--it’s good. A bit lonely at times, as it appears that I am the baby of the staff, but good.”

“Potions though! That has to be a fun one to teach, I was never very good at it, but it was always one of the funner classes I thought.” He furrowed his brow a little as it occurred to him that Sophie was very likely a pureblood. From what he’d gathered, pureblooded witches generally stayed home with the kids, and here she was working. Nice. Liam knew better than to ask about it, but he couldn’t help but feel a little more respect for her.

      • That's always a plus - Sophie, Sat Nov 12 04:33
        Sophie looked up at Liam with scrutinizing but kind eyes, attempting to imagine him as an awkward, short, apparently chubby third year. That was obviously a lot of changes, since it’d been about a... more
