late night rendezvous
[WHO] Eddie & Maisie
[WHEN & WHERE] 9pm, Eddie's flat.
[WHY] Because Eddie's been gone for a while and he wants to make it up to Maisie.
Eddie took a step back and admired the set-up he had created. Maybe this was going a little over the top, but he figured it was okay, because he himself was a little over the top and a little more couldn't hurt anyone. It wasn't like he had really gone terribly far out of his way; just cleaned up and moved some furniture around, washed down the countertops in the kitchen, wiped down the windows, and vacuumed.
There was much he had to discuss with Maisie. They were.... complicated, to say the least, and he didn't really know why but it bothered him that it felt like he should be doing more. It had been years since he had really been attached to a girl, yet here he was, feeling guilty for not writing her enough or not trying harder to see her while he had been taking care of Catherine. Maybe it was just his own sense of justice--which wasn't as rigid, and was in fact very free-flowing, especially compared to that of many Gryffindors--that made him do what he was doing.
He ducked into the bathroom and made sure he didn't look a hot mess. After deciding that he looked all right, he re-entered the living room and waited. At precisely eight thirty that evening, an owl had been sent to Maisie telling her that he would be ready by the time she got there. He sat down in one of the many comfy chairs around the coffee table and checked his clock. Eight fifty-seven. Perfect.
