Harris had known that it would be necessary to do this in person - but that didn't mean he was looking forward to it. He'd successfully evaded the guidance councilor for the majority of the previous semester, despite the fact that he was meant to check in regularly. This would be the first time that Harris had shown up in the older man's office by his own choice, in any case. Addison's safety and his own piece of mind, however, were worth it. And given what all Harris had to say? It seemed unlikely that they'd be getting off the topic of Addison anyway.
On Monday morning, Harris had changed into his uniform and started for the guidance office, not bothering to throw a jacket on over his blazer. Sure, it was cold, but he didn't intend to be outside for long - and he'd endured far worse many times before. He wasn't going to think about that, though - it was hard enough to see the snow still dusting the ground and not be reminded of that night all those years ago. He hated winter for a lot of reasons, and the snow was definitely one of them. Regardless of the cold, the blond considered stopping to smoke before continuing on his way, but opted not to in the end - smoking could wait, and he knew the only reason he was thinking about drawing this out was because he was reluctant to face the fallout when Addison found out what he'd done. He had, after all, promised to keep the sophomore's secrets to himself.
Finally having crossed the campus grounds, Harris slipped into Dalton Hall and made his way to the correct office. Nervous, the blond licked his lips and then knocked.
