Alrick's room is very comfrotable. He has an entire living quarters with a sitting area, bedroom, and personal library containing many books. His room is kept clean most of the time thanks to the house elf there and Alrick is very neat.
*Alrick quietly awoke and looked at the clock. It was 6:30 AM. He turned to Raya, laying beside him, still sleeping. He put his arm around her and gave her a kiss on the cheek, then gently shook her, trying to wake her.* Wake up babe, you got to go to work. It's 6:30. *he mumbled.*
Sorry. *he said turning over and getting up off of the bed, slowly, moving to the couch to sit down.* Sorry. At least it pays well - while I'm still unemployed. I might try and get a job at the Apothecary in Diagon Alley though, what do you think? I'm pretty good at potions?
She sighed and sat up, looking around for a pair of clothes. "I don't know. Honestly? I think it's eithe the Hog's Head or Spec Ops for the Ministry- though you do have a temper." She said, a bit of a teasing tone in the last sentence.
*Alrick stopped for a moment and looked at her.* Ministry? Raya, you're brilliant! I could absoloutely get into the Ministry! I'd be good at that, really good. And I could apply for about any department because my NEWTs and OWLs are nearly perfect. I should check into that. I wonder if they'll let me though sense my father was kinda a follower of Shadow and all. Maybe I'd get in if I was related to someone who was connected well into the Ministry. *He then laughed hysterically.* We'd probably have to get married for that to happen. *he laughed hard again. He felt oddly peppy this morning. He did have a good night's rest.*
Come on Raya, you can't be serious? We've only just moved in together.*he said, half smiling until he realized he'd pushed a button.* And, uhm, ya know -ergh - what time you gotta be to work? *He said, trying to sidetrack her.*
*His face looked angry when she said "slapped". He felt awful for doing that, and she'd broughten it up again. He stood up now, flustered.* Raya, you know I feel worse than terrible for doing that. I would never ever do anything to hurt you. *he pointed.*
*he stopped for a moment, feeling a bit more sentimental. He went up to her closer now.* It's not that I don't want to marry you, it's just if I'm 19 years old, I want to be absoloutely sure that it's what I want. Not to mention Shadow is probably trying to kill me and I'm out of work at the moment. I'm sorry I upset you. *he said meaningfully.*
She pushed him away as she grabbed something from the vanity. "If there'sd even the slightest chance you would get murdered, what makes you think it's a horrible idea to not get married to the person you love?"
*He stood back for a moment, but quickly returned.* I just want you to be safe Raya! I can't shake the constant fear that something is going to happen to you. Everytime you go off to work, all I can think is that somehow Shadow will intercept you and kill you. I know you can protect yourself, but I'd be much more comfortable knowing that you'll be safe.
"Well your stupid worrying makes me so much safer." she said sarcastically, using her hands for emphasis. "All I need to do to stay safe is my wand. So stop worrying, okay? I mean d*mn it isn't like I worry about you twenty-four-frikkin-seven!"
