Evelyn had to admit recent times had become far more interesting than they had been for a near solid year at that point, for as morbid as it was. Instead of being thrust onto the wild goose chase that was tracking down Thomas Solozzo, the Ministry had been thrown into complete disarray by a macabre murder of a Ministry employee happening right under their noses - committed by a werewolf running around unchecked, no less. It was a mystery as to what move they'd ultimately take, but Evelyn could make an educated guess of it. Nonetheless, she still needed to wait a little while longer before it was adequate for her to make a move on the chessboard that was Wizarding politics.

Being let go for the day, the blonde decided to pay a visit to a dear friend of hers. Upon reaching her own home, she promptly Apparated to Professor Riverpond's own home without anyone to see it happen. As she appeared in the woman's living room, she soon realized that there was nobody home. Good thing she came prepared - sitting on the couch, the half-Veela crossed her legs gracefully and retrieved a book from her bag that she had been reading lately, letting its words entertain her for the time being.

It didn't take too long for her to hear the door, signaling Andrea's arrival. The Auror bookmarked the page she was on and put it back inside the bag resting on the seat next to her own, and proceeded to cross her arms under her chest and lean back on the back of the couch while waiting for her friend to make her grand entrance. Evelyn had showed up uninvited so many times at that point she didn't think she'd frighten the teacher in any way.

It had been a complicated week at the school, from the rumours to the actual murder that had happened she was tired of answering questions, telling people to shut up and to stop talking about it. She would be the first one to jump in on the drama, watching it unfold with a playful smile on her lips, but this was different, it had been one of her students, and while she knew about him, she never seemed the type to snap like that, it was improbable that it had been him, but yet the rumours continued to spread across the school and it was nearly impossible to contain them to a single group of people. 

This didn’t get much better as time went by. The rumours continued, now not only about the murder but some crazy nonsense. Kids probably decided to add something amusing to their story and it took a while to die down again, hopefully nothing crazy will happen, she certainly wouldn’t blame the son’s victim if something really did happen and he was the culprit, people get pushed to a limit and when they reach that limit, they snap. Her mental conversation with herself continued, today wasn’t a day to take shortcuts home, she was enjoying her walk back home and she needed the fresh air and to walk by places where people weren’t always talking about the same things. 

Upon arriving home something fell odd, someone was there. The only person that knew how to pass the wards was Evelyn, it was the only person she trusted enough to give a free pass. Whoever it was better not be a robber or they’ll become a popsicle the minute she looks at them. As usual, it had been Evelyn, she will never get used to it. Having to fight so many times for her right to sleep inside a tent she always worries it’s something trying to kick her out. 

‚ÄúHello. For a moment I thought you were a robber.‚ÄĚ she joked approaching Evelyn. She was way cuter than a magical animal trying to share a tent with her when she was still living in Brazil.

It didn't take too long for Evelyn's passive employment of Legilimency to start flooding her own mind with Andrea's thoughts. Much like most other people she dealt with, they were overflowing with Travis Franklin's situation - except, for her foreign friend, it felt somewhat more personal, even if not by a whole lot. Evelyn was quick to conclude she wouldn't be so lucky as to draw out the right mood from the Professor and so she let that thought go, deciding to focus on cheering her up instead.

"Why, my friend, I'm positively ecstatic to see you as well." The blonde joked in return, not bothering to move from her seat. Her eyes were trained on the woman as she made herself comfortable. Evelyn's choice to remain present for her was an odd one - even if she was the type to remain on someone's good graces, it was a rarity when she bothered to dig in to their issues out of genuine interest. Perhaps all the time they'd spent together was starting to make her somewhat concerned over Andrea.

'How quaint.'

"You look like you had 'one of those days', as they say. No offense meant." She spoke up again, watching her with curiosity. "Perhaps it would do you well to discuss what's on your mind. From what I hear, shoving things down does you no good." She could just extract whatever information she wanted, but where was the fun in that?

Andrea approached Evelyn and smiled at her. It was a rare occasion, but Andy did feel comfortable enough around the Auror to let her guard down a little bit, it was hard to keep it up all the time and it wasn‚Äôt healthy at all, at least Evelyn knew Andrea well enough. ‚ÄúDo you want something to eat? Drink? You know you can make yourself at home whenever you come by.‚ÄĚ Andrea didn‚Äôt mind Evelyn inside, it was a mutual respect, unfortunately Evelyn didn‚Äôt live alone, because if she did Andre would visit her way more often, since that wasn‚Äôt the case Evelyn would have to be the one doing the surprise visits to Andy.

‚ÄúDon‚Äôt even tell me about it.‚ÄĚ Andy rubbed her face and turned her attention to Evelyn, it was obvious that the Professor was exhausted, with everything going on she had to be. ‚ÄúWell as you know there was that murder, and dear God things have been chaotic, and this is my downplaying it.‚ÄĚ she leaned back on the couch and closed her eyes for a brief moment. It felt so nice to close them for five seconds without hearing complaints and rumours and a bunch of other things. ¬†Was she being selfish not wanting to listen to her student‚Äôs concerns about another student? Perhaps, but for years nothing happened, and they are worried now?

‚ÄúDue to your job you probably know this, but the victim‚Äôs son is a student, he‚Äôs a werewolf and everyone‚Äôs worried he was the culprit.‚ÄĚ They weren‚Äôt just worried, and normally some rumours are mostly harmless, but others aren‚Äôt, that was a rumour that shouldn‚Äôt be taken lightly, even if it was the truth, they should let the competent authorities take care of it. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs absolute chaos.‚ÄĚ She opened her eyes and looked at Evelyn.

"I think you should sit down, actually. I could prepare something for you instead if you'd like." It wasn't Evelyn's home but it was very obvious that Andrea just needed some good old fashioned resting to recoup energies lost to the most recent town commotion. Hopefully she would ask for a nice cup of tea, as Evelyn could go for one at the moment. 'I can always go for one, actually...'

She scooted away on the couch to give room for Andrea to sit down and turn to her in her seat, an elbow resting atop the back of the seating as she took in Andrea's words. She wasn't telling Evelyn anything new, Legilimency notwithstanding, because it was like the Professor said - it was her very job description to know what was going on.

"Not only that, I'm one of the Aurors assigned to the case." She cleared that up, but never intended to share a single detail about it. "My apologies for the Force not being so forthcoming with information, it makes rumors spread and mutate. But it is how it is. Information leaks compromise the investigation... And, unfortunately, those involved with the situation have to pay the price for the time being regardless of complicity." Travis was innocent. She knew it. Jo knew it. Anyone with a good nose at the crime scene knew it. They had their reports filed, but unfortunately they were halfbreeds. For as competent as they were, their claims still held no water against humans.

"What do you think?" It was morbid curiosity and Evelyn figured it would be far more fun to ask than to prod. If anything, it was excellent fodder for conversation.
