Remus visits Shell Cottage
Who: Bill, Remus (eventually Harry, maybe Ron/Hermione/Luna/Fleur)
What: Catching up
Where: Shell Cottage
When: Evening, after dinner
Rating/Warning: Likely PG
Bill sat on a rock at the cliff's edge outside his home, cigarette in hand, watching as the smoke trailed out towards the sea. It was, perhaps, his worst habit but he kept it as one guilty indulgence. The last of the butt was nearly gone and he snuffed it out on the ground and reached for the pouch in his back pocket, carefully pouring out some of the herbal tobacco and rolling another fag before putting it in his lips and lighting it.
It was chilly outside in the crisp March air, but he'd needed a little escape from the house and a place to sort out his thoughts. Plus, Lupin was due to arrive soon and Bill wanted to catch him before he had a chance to speak with Harry, both to fill him in on the week and to ask a few questions. Bill liked Remus a lot but with Dumbledore gone and Remus now the Order's somewhat-replacement when it came to leadership, Bill'd noticed the increased strain on Lupin. With a kid on the way and Fenrir's pack always a threat, Bill couldn't find good reason to feel angry at Remus for being absent lately, but at the same time, this was exactly when they needed Lupin around. Bill was glad he'd managed to contact him and arrange a visit.
Pulling his scarf and coat tighter, he took a long drag from his cigarette and sat back on the rock, waiting.
