Regulus looked back over at Rabastan when he suggested he lie down then come and join the party. He could feel underlying tension in people and masked true sentiments. He'd been raised on it. Such was the case now, that he was sensing about Rabastan. Rabaston no more wanted to be around him than a Muggle. That much he suspected strongly.
However, he looked over at Rabastan and smiled. "Sure, I suppose that's all I need." he said with a slow nod of agreement. Regulus then went quiet and looked straight ahead toward their destination, the castle first, then back down to the dungeons. "We don't want to put a damper on your success tonight after all. Of all that made the team this year, I'm happiest about you making it." he smiled. "Even above my returning position. I could tell how much you wanted this accomplishment, and you deserve all of the accolades and all that comes with this new position." he said with a calm sort of tone and smile.
