Rose didn’t sound too happy with accepting his help, though he supposed that was to be expected. He’d been the cause of the mess, after all. Still, she accepted, and that was more than enough reason for him to promptly slip his hand in against the base of her neck, collecting the longer ends of her hair together so that he could wrap the napkin around the mass. He took it in his fist and firmly slid it down her hair, stripping off the majority of the breakfast carnage. Which he just let fall to the floor, because there was hardly any point in trying to collect it for the rubbish bin when there was already bits of exploded pancake all over the ground around her feet. One of the house-elves would take care of it, he assumed.

Shaking out the napkin, he slung it over his shoulder, uncaring of whatever dirty streaks it might leave behind on his white tank top, and began combing his fingers through her hair a bit more thoroughly. “Hah, fick dig!” he grinned, triumphantly pulling out a larger chunk of pancake and tossing it to the side. “You are right,” he continued on, addressing Rose this time. “My hair is very uncomplicated.
