characters Andromeda + Teddy.
It wasn't as if I had known that this day would come. I had sent owls to her. I had kept a careful correspondence for a long time, just so I wouldn't lose touch with Andromeda entirely. I had done everything I could to make sure that we still maintained some connection, but she hadn't come back to the journals in a long time. And then she had, and I knew that it was the right time to say something.
She shouldn't have to live the way she did.
Not with her life ahead of her and a growing child.
So I waited there at the Three Broomsticks. Outside, under (and a bit left of) the sign hanging on the building itself, the heat rose from the ground and poured from the sky. I had hoped that it had been an easy trek for Andromeda from the school. (I always hoped for the easiest when it concerned her.) Hopefully she would arrive soon and we could go inside, and we could talk, and I could.. And I could hold Nymphadora and talk about her life (our lives) and maybe feel like I was a part of it for awhile.
