Setting: Their flat
Things had been so busy lately. Not just busy for Kingsley but busy for me too. My school had become so busy and so Gideon and I were constantly pulling late nights together, and then there was Emmeline who was staying with us because her place had gotten broken into by a Death Eater, and then there was the occasional Order meeting and whatever else I happened to be doing that week.
It was no wonder Kingsley and I were starting to fall apart. It was okay though, I had faith in us and knew we'd work this out.
Today was the day we had said we were going to have a chat, so I pulled some strings and made sure Em would be out and had Gid cover my classes. I'd work a Friday for him or something, maybe he could see his nephews.
I made some coffee and waited quietly in the living room having woken up far too early. Still in my pajamas, I curled up on the settee with my coffee and watched the morning news with the volume down low. More missing children - a few of them I actually recognised. Oh God it made me sick.
