Brandt grinned and stuck out his tongue in reciprocation. He got a bag of peanuts in the shell out of the pantry. "Alright, let's go."

"Does, uh, your brother believe in Santa Claus?" Laurie didn't really know the etiquette there and had observed Brandt's parents being very theatrical about this. "We're not supposed to tell him?"

Brandt nodded. "That's right, yeah."

"Can I ask why?" It was a genuine question. Laurie truly wasn't familiar with Christmas.

"He already knows magic is real because--" obviously. "I think the way I see it is like what's the harm of letting him believe a little more?"

Brandt grinned and patted Laurie on the shoulder. "Thanks, mate." He attempted an endearment he so often heard other students say but it didn't sound right at all coming from him. "Sorry." He made a face.

Laurie laughed, shaking his head. "So close."

They went upstairs, to the second story and Brandt opened the window in his bedroom and climbed out with the bag of peanuts. "This is the best way to the roof."

"Are you sure this is safe?" Laurie looked skeptical.

Brandt shrugged and rolled his eyes a little. "You sound like mama. I come up here all the time." There was a ledge outside his window and it was a very short climb up onto the roof, literally like one step. "I'll leviosa you if you fall." He grinned as he gave Laurie a wink.

Laurie wasn't really concerned about his own safety. He watched Brandt like a hawk as they headed up.

Which Brandt found annoying. And kind of endearing, but mostly annoying. He knew what he was doing. There was a blanket on the roof already, a large flannel quilt, that was covered lightly in fallen leaves. There was also a battery operated mini stereo and a flashlight.

Brandt started sprinkling the shelled peanuts across the rooftop, offering the bag to Laurie to do the same.

He took them in hand, gazing at the scene with widened eyes. It felt like something out of those old snowglobes he used to shake, lined in rows above an nonoperational hearth at the run down group home before he'd booked it the fuck out of there. He'd reach up and grab it, watching the scene upset and then tip it over as the snow righted itself and gently fell. Real life, he surmised as he followed Brandt onto the blanket, was infinitely better.

Brandt laid down next to him, a handful of peanuts in his pocket and he started peeling one as he gazed up at the stars. "Me an' Bash sometimes make up our own constellations out here."
