Alicia had been talking to them both in away, Alicia knew Katie's views on people like Graham and Adrian and while she trusted Adrian, Graham was a whole other subject. She was polite, nice and friendly enough but the man had yet to do much to earn her trust though she was trying hard not to hold the fact that he was a Slytherin against him.
Arms were instantly around Adrian, hugging him tight for that brief moment and for the first time in the past couple of days she smiled and it was genuine and happy, glad to be safe in his arms even if it was only for a moment.
That smirk was noted along with the return glare, eyes flicking from Adrian to Graham but she'd ask about that one later. Something was going on but right now wasn't the best time to ask.
She wanted to, she wanted to stay but worry for her friend made her pause, eyes resting on Katie for a moment. "I can't, I need to make sure Katie gets home..." she told him softly, voice dipped low and worry was thick in her tone, regret there too. "She needs me." And she hoped those words would convey why Katie needed her without having to say it. "Maybe he should sleep here for tonight."
