'Remember that, apart from an identical respiratory system and set of muscles, you have altered dramatically from the human world. An standard aging potion would have a set of effects I would... rather not go into at the present.' The blunt truth was the best approach, at times. 'You survived, my dear, because of chance. I'm afraid that's how it works. A single harmless bacterium in your body might have tipped the scales on the chances of your survival. The infection process is one that has never quite been investigated properly... for obvious reasons.'

Håkan sighed softly, another wave of melancholy bordering on depression sweeping through him again. Even the memory of the secret letters hidden in his room couldn't help much this time, though it did bring another question to his mind. He bit his lip again—this was a more serious question. . .one that could actually get him into trouble. Still, with what Adesola was offering him, he decided the other man deserved as much as the truth.

"Um. . .H-Headmaster. . ." He paused again, but didn't wait for the man to answer—best to say it all like ripping off a bandaid. "I've sort of. . .been writing letters. To a girl—sh-she's a fourth year in Gryffindor. . ." Another pause, still not enough to form a reply. "I. . .um. . .told her, about me—she promised to keep it a secret though!—and we. . .were sort of wondering. . ."

If we could be like normal friends, see each other. . .

He trailed off, looking at the ground, too afraid of what he might find in Adesola's eyes.

There followed a rather unexpected silence.

'I would not consider the option of meeting till you have truly settled into your new regime of taking in blood. That could be some time.'

Håkan winced but nodded lightly, sighing a little. "Yes sir. . ." he mumbled. He understood well enough, it was simply so lonely as things were now that he'd taken to hoping that just maybe he could meet Lucienne. "Jag förstår. . ."

(I understand)

Adesola paused, seeming to find the constant movement when discussing something as serious with the boy rather distasteful. At least, for now.

'Remember, Håkan, that I only wish the best for you. But I must also cater for the needs and risks to the other students. Give it a little time... by all means continue this... correspondence. I would like to have a word with your pen-friend, however. Would you like me to tell her anything? In person, from you?'

"I understand," Håkan repeated, in English this time. He slowed to a stop as well. "I understand. . .I don't want to hurt them. I can wait, I'll just. . ." He trailed off for a moment, his hand tugging at his sleeve. It was almost as though he was trying to distract himself from his own thoughts. "I should get some new books."

At the question of what messages he could send to Lucienne, he bit his lip. "Could you tell her. . .I'm sorry? And I wish I could meet her." He laughed softly. "I don't know what she looks like. . ."

'I'm sure a photograph won't be exactly out of the question... although a meeting certainly is. I trust you will not doing anything as impulsive as to orchestrate one.'' Not a threat as such, nor a strict, accusatory rule, merely a reminder.

"I know, Headmaster. I won't." He tried a weak smile, though it was resigned and somewhat weary. Too weary for a fourteen year old, regardless of species. "But. . .I think a picture would be nice. . ." Indeed, it would at least be a face that he could talk to. Albeit one that could only reply once a day.

Adesola smiled sympathetically, and nodded once.

'I'll see it's done, m'boy.'

He smiled a bit. It was a bit heartening, at least. "Maybe. . .I could give her a picture of me. . .?"

"... We may just be able to do one better than that."

Adesola seemed to be thinking out loud, musing to the silent air about them. His steps resumed themselves, and he slipped his arms behind his back, holding one wrist in a pale palm.

"You should have friends your own age. It's all part of the rehabilitation process."

Håkan looked up to the other man, curious. He was still hesitant to let himself hope, but it was a hard feeling to push aside. And Adesola did sound as though he wanted Håkan to have contact with a friend, after all. He swallowed.

"Åh?" he asked, almost quietly—almost as if he was afraid that the headmaster would change his mind. "Better. . .how? Sir?"

"Something called a two-way mirror. The beauty of it is that you need be no where near the person you are speaking to." Adesola replied light-heartedly. However, he grew somewhat more sombre and reminded him that this was far from set.

It was a strange and foreign idea, but suddenly Håkan's mind was alive with possibilities. It would be like his friend was only separated from him by a glass, they would perhaps even be able to talk! As they wouldn't be near each other, there would be no smell—nothing to bring on Håkan's hunger—and there would be no chance of anyone getting hurt. It was a wondrous thought for a attention-starved fourteen-year-old. The smile that curled his lips this time would be rather more lively than the last had been.

"That would be perfect! Thank you, Headmaster! I would. . .would be very grateful." Somehow, the words didn't seem quite strong enough. He turned back to look at the courtyard, fingers twisted in his robe-sleeves, eyes closed and letting his imagination wander.
