RP: Ron & Regulus Who: Ron & Regulus When: midday, 12th February, 2038 Where: Hogwarts' grounds, specifically the Greenhouses What: Practical things and Horcrux discussion
Ron and Regulus met outside the main entrance and headed towards the Greenhouses. Ron's arm was still aching, but less so than yesterday and not to any extent where it would be a detriment if they had to defend against any creatures. He really hoped they wouldn't have to, especially the Acromantulas, but it was easy to see even from the castle that the forest had gotten even wilder in the eight years since whatever had wiped wizards off the face of the Earth. Who knew what was in there now.
"I have to warn you, if one of Aragog's descendants comes lumbering out of the forest, I'm killing it and then running," he said, only half-joking. Spiders were the worst. "So, how do we want to tackle this? I hate to think what some of the plants could have done in the absence of wizards. Some of them were almost as dangerous as acromantulas." If Hagrid's gardens had gone over all wild, there was nothing to say the greenhouses hadn't as well. "So...you should know that I know what you did. About the locket."
Ron knew it was blunt, and likely came out of nowhere from Regulus' perspective, but he was of the opinion it was better to clear the air at the beginning, especially if they were going to be working together. There needed to be trust built, quickly, and what better way to start than to get everything out in the open at the beginning.
