It had been nearly two months since Jamie had decided to leave the house and move to Narragyambie for who knows what reason, and a little longer than that since Cole had done the same. The anxiety Alex had been enduring over it didn't make much sense - they visited hear every other day and even had her come to them on the regular and she was practically as close to them then as she was before, if not closer due to the sudden onset responsibility the two had of not leaving her behind. Nevertheless, she felt it. It made her chest tighten and her limbs tremble whenever she considered that they might just stop visiting her. That they may find something of interest in Narragyambie that would make them toss her away like useless garbage, just like her father did. She knew it wouldn't happen, yet her mind was helplessly thrown into that type of disarray on a daily basis.
And that was where Tyson McKennis came in.
She wasn't sure which deity to thank for that chance encounter of theirs back in June but it had been a life saver in her perspective. A source of stability (if one could call their explosive adventures such a thing) had been what she needed, one that didn't make her want to jump off a cliff with stress like her job did. Road trips followed, as well as gaming and other various activities, and it all contributed to keeping the drummer's mind off of things that were driving her insane. The pair became friends rather quickly and it was a no brainer of whom to pick the moment Jamie finally conceded on letting her get a flat mate, if only to make the house less quiet all the time.
"You'd think wizards moving stuff would go much more smoothly." She idly commented as she watched Tyson get to work. She had no problem getting Jamie agreeing to him moving in due to knowing each other, and it just so happened that the younger Quidditch player would be taking the room abandoned in August. 'Aww. Like passing down a torch or something.'
"Need some help there or something?" Probably not. He had a wand. In fact, past letting Tyson into the house (something she was fairly positive he could've done anyway), she wasn't sure why she was there at all.
