Who: Drew & [OPEN]
When: The day of the big lock down
Where: Hufflepuff dorm room, all trapped up
What: All this house arrest is setting off Drew's claustrophobia
Drew liked his common room, he did. Most of his friends were in Hufflepuff and Cuddles liked to hang around there as well, so the time that he spent there on the sofa or on his bed hanging out was usually time well spent.
Except, apparently, when he had no choice about spending it there.
The low dorms didn't usually bother him as the place was more cosy than close, but now with everyone packed in there and unable to leave he was feeling that heart-fluttering, sweat-icy, head spinning feeling that meant a panic attack was on it's way. He didn't suffer them often, being the daredevil he was, but his mostly unnoticed, mostly hidden claustrophobia was picking an awful time to emerge.
He'd been writing to Alfie but he hadn't been able to finish, standing up to pace shakily, earning annoyed complaints from the rest of the room. The more he paced the worse his panic became, the smaller the room seemed until Drew was pale and wide eyed. "I can't, I have to go..." he stammered before he bolted out of the room. He hop, skipped and jumped his way past the other students, trying to get to the door. He wasn't thinking about what he'd do when he got there, just that he needed to get there because he needed OUT.
