Horace nodded. "That is a good point. I briefly considered saying that while Dumbledore was that it's unlikely that Tracey Davis is the next Dumbledore. However, did Albus' teachers know how far he would go and what he would do when he was a student here?" He smiled, enjoying having a little faith in one of his students; even if she didn't have the background or promise to earn an invitation to his little club.
"Thank you. You are too kind." He readily took the whiskey then had a sip. "Ah. Perfect." His hands were less shaky and his nerves were beginning to calm.
"Sounds like a reasonable course." Horace lingered a few more minutes and finished his enhanced tea. "Thank you so much for taking time to speak with me. I look forward to speaking with your sister a little later."
"Thank you, Professor Delacour." He smiled and made his way towards the door.
