Even with the furniture, Nick's flat seemed empty. At least her own had a few touches of life, though that was going to change. Judy had been looking at him but now turned her attention to the bag. She didn't know exactly what was in the bag, but seeing it caused an ache. She could imagine Nick as a child half carrying, half dragging it across the ground. It was as important as the items it contained.

She only half smiled. "Say goodbye to that cracked mirror because we're moving onto better things." The use of we felt right. Judy wrapped her hand around Nick's arm and apparated into her apartment, forgoing her own comfort for him. Moving away, Judy closed her eyes to dispell the dizziness before grabbing the newspaper and settling down on the couch. Onto the business of finding a new flat. Finch could always call if he needed her but for right now Nick was her priority.

He didn’t like the way she looked at him just then. He’d seen it so many times with every new home he got shuffled off to. However, it didn’t take long for the new foster family to find something wrong with him and ship him away. Would the same happen here?

Harris told him to bid his cracked mirror farewell because they were moving on to better things. They. They. Which meant that it would be as a unit, like how they’d moved the last several months in the Ministry. The woman strode across the room and took hold of his arm, apparating them to her apartment. Setting his old duffle bag on the floor next to the couch, he raised a brow when Harris flopped onto her couch with the local newspaper, opening it up to the rentals that were currently available.

For several moments, he kept quiet, shifting his weight from one lanky leg to the other. “This is for real, huh?” he said, finally making a decision and easing himself into a sitting position on the couch next to her. He looked over her shoulder at bit at the newspaper. “You don’t have to move, I can just sleep on the couch.” It wasn’t a horrible thing, as far as couches went.

"Yes." This must be so new to him and Judy's chest ached again. She sensed Nick sit down to her but didn't look as if he was a bird she didn't want to scare away. "I saw that sorry excuse for a mattress the Ministry gave you. And you've slept on far too many couches. You deserve a real bed."

Because Judy hoped he'd stay for a long, long time. She handed him one section of the paper and started circling potential places, unconsciously nibbling on one end of the pen as her eyes scanned the ads. "Let me know if you find someone and we can call them." Judy kept solidifying in his mind that they were together now, closer than before.

She confirmed that it was for real and then went on to say that he was going to be getting a real bed. He frowned at that. “I’ve had a real bed before,” he said, rubbing the back of his neck and leaning back on the couch. “A couple times at least.” Ryker’s probably didn’t count in the woman’s book. In Judy’s book.

He’d done that every now and again. Called her by her first name. It was an easy name, rolled off the tip of his tongue like it belonged there. He was so accustomed to calling people by their last names that it had simply become what he’d called her as well… but if this friendship was going to be a legitimate thing, then maybe he could at least stop sounding like an ass and call her by her goddamn first name.

His thoughts were interrupted as Harris – Judy – as Judy handed him a section of the newspaper. He noticed that she was looking through The Daily Prophet, handing him what he could only assume was one of the No-Majs newspapers, as the photos didn’t move, and none of the type tried to play tricks on him by moving around while he read it.

“I’m… is this something we’re gonna get done in a day?” he asked, giving her an apprehensive glance. It was… a little overwhelming. He’d never truly looked for an apartment before.

"That old thing the Ministry called a mattress doesn't count." And neither did his prison bed. Talking to Nick kept making her realize how lucky she was that the Harris family had come along. Nick's question drew her from her thoughts and she berated herself for forgetting that Nick was new to all this.

"No, of course not." Judy looked down at the newspaper in her hand, embarrassed. "I just got excited, that's all." She was eager to give him the things he'd never had before, to see him smile. To see him happy. She was long past believing those feelings were for platonic reasons and was thankful Nick hadn't caught on. Yet. It might just shatter everything.
