Ren could feel Adrian, and after he climbed down into the case, he followed that sense of his friends presence until he found him in the grass, barefoot, and a hint of a smile played at his lips. He could feel Adrian’s mood and for a moment he didn’t move to interrupt him. This was important too, in Ren’s mind. This sort of centering work, grounding oneself in the moment and this place and he didn’t think it could hurt anything they’d attempt later. After a few breaths, he moved forward, coughing slightly, and giving Adrian a full smile.
“Getting started without me I see,” he teased, but it was warm and laced with approval.
Ren has spent some time thinking about what Adrian could do, and trying to figure out ways to help him. Something that might blend the methods he’d been taught with those that Adrian had tried to learn. Some hybrid that would allow him to control the magic, and with it maybe the Obscurus too. He didn’t know if he had a specific plan, but he had some ideas. And mostly he wanted to try to feel their way through this, playing with what might work, and what might not.
He reached over and hugged Adrian and stepped back. He’d seen him at Christmas, but he’d been busy at work and he missed him. “What do you want to try first?”
