-blinks- Just… -holds out one of her bags idk bby clothes shopping???- Could you just…hold that for a second? Trying to fish my keys out of my purse and the last time I set a bag on the ground, the wet seeped through the bottom and ruined a few things.
Not a problem. -takes the bag willingly- So, uh… -is treading carefully bc she doesn’t want to offend lizzie again- …What sort of shopping were you doing? If you don’t mind me asking.
-clenches her jaw briefly and then sniffs like HMPH- Just because I’m a little roundedthan usual, doesn’t mean I’m not capable of carrying things. But… -begrudgingly bc a bit- Suppose an extra pair of hands wouldn’t be bad.
I didn’t mean to insinuate that you needed the help, I just offered to see if you wanted the help. -perks up a bit- Of course! What can I do?
You obviously meant something by that comment.
No, really. I was just offering to help. It looks like you’ve got a lot to carry, there.

No? I thought you’d be angry.
S’what I don’t get, though — why he’d want Lily. -pauses- Mean, she’s the most talented witch I know, but it doesn’t change the fact he doesn’t take kindly to muggle borns.
Maybe he was willing to overlook that because she is so talented. But let’s not over think it, yeah?
But you didn’t — he didn’t think you’d ever want to join him. -feels a bit sick to the stomach tbh b4 shaking his head- But you’re right.
Of course he didn’t. He wouldn’t want me, remember? Maybe I’m lucky in that regard. …Well, no. Definitely not lucky.
Value my — that’s — -shakes his head- Knew he was insane, but this is a new high.
He is insane, yeah? So don’t think about it. Just put it from your mind. It’s what I do. I’d have gone mad ages ago if I just let myself wallow in my worries all the time.
