Remus respected Robards' decision, but didn't hide his surprise. "OK," he said. "I understand."
He hoped Robards knew that the offer stood, if he happened to change his mind. Waiting for Robards to finish the thought, he furrowed his brows together. The Auror didn't end up saying anything, and Remus wasn't quite sure what that was about.
"The offer stands," he said quietly, voicing his thoughts. "So you know. I appreciate what you've done. Many people will. Innocent people."
