Is it strictly necessary for you to be this loud?
Malf-- Scorpius! Sorry, mate-- I, er... didn't mean to wake you-- erm-- Albus?
It's fine. Late night camping out on watch.
He's at St. Mungo's, though.
Oh. Right. St. Mungo's-- so he'll be there a while.
Well, let's see--Probably at least another couple hours. He's been getting a lot of attention, what with the new pepper-up.
Oh right-- the whole sparkling thing.
Er-- it's nothing. I-- how are you?
Bit disheveled. Wearing boxers. You know.
What is it?
S'Teddy's first day back at Hogwarts.
That's...good? Is that not good?
No--yeah, it's good! It's great. He's so excited.
Hey. Hey. Okay. You need some of that hair, Al--James.
Sorry. Not quite awake.
He's excited, and you're panicked?
Because you can't look out for him?
I-- I don't know what to even do with myself. I'm not needed in Wales until five, and he won't get home until half past four--
I mean, supremely fucking unhelpful, I know. But you know that, right? Everyone at the school's going to have an eye out for him.
Why don't you sit down? I can get you some tea? Or a shot.
Can't have alcohol on game days.
Right. Game day.
Why don't you just...erm...stay here?
Do you want me to put some trousers on?
Hah-- no, I'm not actually my husband.
Not--not that I enjoy looking at you in your pants-- bugger-- no, I mean, fuck! Ahh-- shit.
Bloody fucking hell. It's like he's rubbed of on me or something.
Do you really have tea?
Stop looking at me like that.
Like what? These are my fucking eyes.
I'll see what I can do about some tea.
Thanks. Do you have sandwiches? I know you have an elf. I won't tell Teddy don't worry!!
Thank Merlin. I thought I was going to have to pretend to boil water.
We had a elf when we were kids.
Well, I sort of know. Not, like--Not from Al, really.
