RP: What is going on?
Date: June 1, 2006
Characters: Neville Longbottom, Millicent Bullstrode
Location: Greenhouses at the Shelter
Warnings: language? Don't know yet
Summary: Millicent shows up for work, late, and Neville questions her about her behaviour lately
Neville was up to his elbows in the new plantings for the shelter's food supply for the coming fall when he looked at the clock. Millicent had been constantly late for work, and after her ordeal, Neville had been letting it slide as he understood about the illness. If she was still sick, he could understand too, but Millicent had never told him.
Now she had been arriving hours late for work and behaving rather oddly. Neville wasn't one to be a hard-ass and would rather try to understand what people were going through rather than jumping to conclusions - so when Millicent arrived, looking tired and not really ready for work, he couldn't really wait anymore. He was quite sure she still needed the work, and before she got sick, before Ella got sick... she seemed to enjoy working in the greenhouses. He was concerned.
He had some tea sent in, since he needed it himself as well as it might comfort Millicent with whatever was going on. "Fancy a chat then?" Neville said a little more seriously than she was probably prepared for but, it needed to be done.
