Hestia was close to questioning him about his abrupt end to their conversation until she noted the focus his eyes had taken. If anybody knew when to drop a conversation around a suspicious character, it would probably be the Ministry's head Auror. "Understood," Hestia said compliance as she took a sip of her wine.
She rolled her eyes as he teased back. Hestia really wasn't aware of where she might have led their conversation, but it really hadn't been in the direction of where he was taking the talk. She worried her lower lip between her teeth as he leaned forward.
"That would be lovely, Auror, and I'm flattered," Hestia began "But I've recently started seeing somebody." It wasn't as if he seemed like the sort of man that Hestia wouldn't date, she enjoyed talking to him, but she and Viktor had been working things out between themselves, and that was going far better than Hestia might have previously imagined.
"I'm sorry if I came across the wrong way or made some sort of implication," Hestia said gently as she pushed her fingers through her hair. "I'm not so used to being in a relationship and I haven't completely adapted to the changes."
