He grinned and nudged him back and they fell in step together as they walked back to the bus stop. "I like him a lot. He's really great. Sage was pretty cool, too."

"Told you," Laurie smiled back. "He likes you a lot, too. I can tell."

Brandt's grin widened a little. "I'm glad. I'm sorry you guys--can't be together more."

Laurie inhaled slowly through his nose and gave a nod. "It's probably for the best. I guess I can be a little overbearing, haha. It's good he's able to, you know, be his own person now."

He nodded. He had a younger brother. He knew how that was. "Yeah. Yeah I can understand that."

Brandt shrugged and nodded. "As far as any of us know."

"I'm looking forward to meeting him." Laurie's eyes crinkled when he smiled and they stepped out of the hospital onto the crowded streets. "Portkey's nearby." He retrieved a metal bottle from his tote and twisted off the cap, taking a sip from it and grimacing. He held it out to Brandt.

It smelled strongly of firewhiskey. "Cure for the cold."

Brandt didnt know what Firewhiskey smelled like. He took a sip and immediately turned to cough it up. "Holy--hell," he declared hoarsely between fits of coughing. "People drink that?"

Laurie immediately burst into laughter, clapping Brandt on the shoulder. "Gives you welts!"

"More for me," Laurie sing-songed, looping his arm through Brandt's.

Fortunately for Brandt, though, he just took another swig and then put it away. They crossed the street and ducked between several rows of buildings, leading to The Leaky Cauldron.

Brandt was anxious to get home. He collected Peepers and his bag and went fishing in his pockets for the paper that told him where the portkey was and what it looked like.

Laurie spotted it a few moments later and pointed, nudging Brandt in that direction. "Whatever happens, don't let go. Got it?"

He nodded. "Oh, ok. Yeah. I remember." He walked with Laurie towards the item. It was an old shoe with torn laces and holes in the sole. "I was told it can be a bit dorientong." So he was mildly prepared.

Laurie took Brandt's hand in his, and then reached out in one abrupt movement to grip the shoe. And then the ground disappeared from their feet and they were flung through the universe, spinning dizzily within a realm of gray and floating houses and wizards reading newspapers and stirring cups of tea upside down. Brandt slipped a little and Laurie grabbed him and flung them down through a complicated, interconnected series of dimensional doorways that plopped them dead center in the middle of a field, around a large tree.

Brandt collapsed to the ground with a thud, ears ringing and feeling like he was gonna puke. "Holy hell." He groaned and rolled over to check on peepers who was cool as a cucumber. He sighed and got to his feet.

He brushed himself off and when he looked up, he recognized that tree. His grin widened and he heard a cow mooing in the distance. "Come on!" He tugged on Laurie's hand and started running, excitement winning out over any disorientation.
