cottage; ren & adrian
While Ren wasn't an overly affectionate person by nature, maybe he let loose a little with people he knew better, and Adrian was one of the few in Repose that he would open up with. And sometimes that physical touch was really calming. He did know this, sometimes having gone way too long without any of it himself.
He nodded at Adrian. "I'm expecting it may take some time," he offered and then afraid it'd sound as if he didn't think Adrian could do it, he hurried on. "If it doesn't that's great too, but we're playing with ideas between two different styles here, you know. And it may take some time to really get it right.
"I don't think we need the wand though. I agree you with there," Ren stuck his hands in his pockets trying to think about the best place to begin with any of this. He'd spent some time thinking over things, looked at some books, and generally tried to consider what he knew about the Obscurus, and the way the power worked. "Can you do some of that stuff now? Like, without a wand, lifting a stone or whatever? On your own, or with the Obscurus, honestly either way - I just want to know what you're able to do right now."
