Who: Professor Snape & Theo Nott
What: Theo's paranoid about the Puzzle box
Where: Snape's office
When: Saturday evening
His father might have tried with violence and a heavy hand but Professor Snape still intimidated him more, inspired more respect than his father could ever hope to. Theo didn't even realise this consciously, it was just something that was and whatever strange kind of father-complex he had about the whole situation, Theo remained unaware of it.
He had the puzzle box in one hand, wrapped in the cloth that it had come in and again in another cloth - he wasn't about to touch the thing with his bare hands and he thought it better that he didn't advertise his strange gift. He hadn't recognised the owl that had brought him the thing and he knew better than to thoughtlessly give in to his curiosity (although it was burning inside him) and the only person he trusted to be able to help him properly with this was the man who's door he knocked at before waiting patiently.
He waited to be called, manners that had been engraved into him being hard to forget.
