December hit in a flurry of vengeful wind that cut through the air and sank deep into Elliot's bones. For days now the Hospital Wing had been littered with students from everything from runny noses to shear exhaustion from the end of term exams. The Hogsmeade weekend couldn't have come at a more opportune time. Sure he'd likely wind up with another wing full from none of them dressing nearly as warmly a he would like them to, but it was a break that they all deserved. Their spirits were lifted, and he could already hear their laughter drifting towards him as he plodded down the lane towards the village. It warmed him even in the blizzard.
While laughter was great and all, there were better ways to physically get warm, and it wasn't long before he started in search of it. Nothing sounded better at the moment than a huge cup of tea...but Firewiskey didn't sound to bad either. It might have been the weekend, but that didn't mean he wouldn't be up all night with sick kids. It was a tough call to make, but he was going to have to make it soon before he froze to death. Before he could duck into either one, one of the school's professors caught his eye. If a group of them were already there, he might as well head wherever they were going. It was hard to catch up with them while he was always stuck halfway across the castle, so it'd be nice to see them for a change.
"Professor McNamara!" he called as he caught up with her. "I didn't think anyone but the house heads were going to be brave enough to be out in this weather."

I didn't know if she was a tea or drinks sort of girl, so I thought I'd let you decide.
