Settings: Ravenclaw girls dorm
More than once during my slow walk toward the Ravenclaw common room did I try to back out. Andromeda wouldn't believe a spontaneous attack of taking-care-of-babyphobia. And I could never use the excuse that I haven't done my homework yet. I couldn't get out of this even if I tried.
I didn't want to take care of Nymphadora because... well, just because. Because I wouldn't know how. Because Nymphadora scares me. Because I'd rather be somewhere else doing something fun than having to face up to the Consequences of my Actions. Because I could be a terrible father. I muttered these things under my breath until I came up to the door of the Ravenclaw dormitory and waited anxiously for Andromeda to find me.
