He smiled down at him and glanced at the people walking by briefly before returning his gaze to Laurie.
“And, Orie, it wasn’t a ‘job’; you two didn’t choose willingly.” He didn’t appear to have finished, but perhaps he wasn’t sure what to say – which to pick – and rested his chin on his knees, looking ahead.

He waved his hand. "Yeah, I know."

He smiled a little, and gave their backs a couple of rubs.

“I’m going to apologise to Yarah,” he said, as he stood while gently untangling himself from them (and making sure his sleeves didn’t whap them), looking down at them and turning to the door to indicate they could stay here with each other for a while if they wanted.

Laurie grimaced, knowing full well he would be doing the same very shortly. "OK, I'm just gonna finish my cig," he waved Qin on. "We'll be in in a minute."

Qingying nodded. “Okay.”
He went through the doors and walked to Yarah’s office to find her.

Yarah was there! She looked up from her desk and gave him a sympathetic smile. "It sounds like the war cries have stopped. Are you holding up OK?"

He laughed lightly at the ‘war cries’.

“Yes,” he dipped his head – and he really did seem to be okay, rather than ‘acting tough’.

“I apologise for the… disruption.” He dipped his head again, and then looked in the direction he’d come from, before giving her a smile. “You could say I stepped on one of those ‘landmines’,” he chuckled, and this tone and expression said it was not Laurie’s fault. “Though…” He looked down the corridor again and then back at her, still with a smile. “It was likely something that had to happen.”

"I think you're right," Yarah laughed gently. "Avoiding the subject doesn't do any good, and now it's out in the open. You're a really good influence on both of them. I know it's not easy."

He wasn’t entirely sure he was, and a little of that showed on his features as he glanced down the corridor, but it wasn’t strong enough for him to address.

He shook his head with a small smile. “It is not hard.”

"Are you planning to stay with them throughout the holidays?" she asked, curious, looking up from her clipboard.

"How long are you planning to stick around altogether?" she wondered curiously. "You're not affiliated with Hogwarts, as far as I understand..." It was a diplomatic segue, one where Qingying clearly felt she was angling at a specific point, but she hadn't yet come right out and said it.

“I taught there… a long time ago,” he said, and then tilted his head, looking away from her for a moment. It seemed he would answer her question, but then he didn’t – yet it didn’t seem as if he was withholding from her purposefully.
It more appeared that he was waiting.

"Right, but that's not your connection with them." Her eyebrows arched. "Are you planning on staying with them for a significant period of time?"

“Yes…?” His eyebrows raised slightly playfully, inviting.

"Well, from this perspective, it certainly seems like you've taken on a guardianship role with him, if not them both. How do you feel about that?"

He considered her words, and when he next answered her, his expression – though still bearing a small smile – was more serious.

“I… do feel that way about them.”

She rested her fingers on her chin. "I think... whether he would admit it or not, Laurie views you as a parental figure. It's one of the reasons why he lashes out at you, yet is very polite toward other adults in his life. It's an indicator he feels safe with you."

"It's a big, it's taking on a big role," she laughed gently. "I'd love to hear your thoughts about it."

His gaze flicked to the ground momentarily before returning to her.
“I approached him – observed him, revealed myself to him – because I had decided to stay.”

"You're someone who's a positive influence on him, who is helping him to reshape the way he looks at the world, how he views things. It's very much a, a parental role. It's a degree of responsibility, you know, it's a dynamic." She smiled. "Have you two spoken about that at all?"

He looked thoughtful – in the midst of recall.
“No…”
