Lost and insecure
Characters: Harry, Faelan
Summary: Harry and Faelan scout a location that isn't for the magical creature refuge.
Harry let go of Faelan's waist as soon as they reappeared in the windowless room. He had scouted several locations for Sirius' memorial refuge for magical creatures, and Harry knew that this one was completely inappropriate. The choice wasn't entirely for the purposes of altruism, at least, not for Sirius' beloved magical creatures.
After his talk with Oliver, Faelan had been coming home more often. Over large plates of food in Harry's attempt to entice Faelan to gain back some weight, the two had discussed many topics, some even personal -- except Padma. Whenever Harry brought her up, Faelan side-stepped him, changing the subject with a spectacularly bad set of non sequitors.
The last time Harry remembered Faelan bringing up Padma willingly, it had been to feel him out about the idea of Faelan moving into a loft next to Padma's store. Nothing had ever come of it, and it turned out that the entire building still stood empty to this day. It was far too small a lot to house potentially massive magical creatures, but Harry was a bit desperate to provoke Faelan into...something. Something that might help him stop camping out exclusively in Neville's cramped office space. Visits with Oliver alone didn't seem to be helping the boy move past Padma's leaving.
They were on the far side of the building from Haven Books. Harry hoped he had a few minutes before Faelan would recognize where they were.
