"Tuck me in?" Regulus repeated and turned to look up at the taller Slytherin holding him upright. He giggled again and stared up at Lucius, a strange look of wonder and awe appearing in his bleary eyes it seemed. "You care that much for me?" he asked, seeming surprised. "You'd carry me drunk because I'm home? That's... That's... so gallant of you Lucius. You..." Regulus lifted up his hand that wasn't wrapped around Lucius and patted Lucius on the stomach gently.
"That's right noble of you. Very, very noble. I knew you were a good man to know Lucius. I... I hold you in the highest of esteem, and uh... respect." he said fighting hard to maintain his grasp on proper English. "Everyone thinks your just, well, your just the Dog's Bollocks, aren't you?" he said with a winning smile and stared up into Lucius' eyes as he shifted his weight from one unsteady foot to the other, and ended up leaning more heavily on the other boy.
