Okay so. It might have been a while since Cadan had seen Delilah. Maybe. Possibly. Okay, yeah, September to January was a bit of a while, but who could blame him? How else was he meant to take the news that she was pregnant except for freaking the hell out, and running to another country? He'd never claimed to be a sensible adult.
He'd met Jasmine Queen again in Spain, and she'd bullied him into returning to England, but that had been back in November. It had taken him this long to gather up the rest of his courage (maybe he wasn't quite so suited to Gryffindor), and write Delilah an owl suggesting they should probably meet up. Probably. Maybe. He still kind of felt like running away again.
But, no. He wasn't. He was sitting in the three broomsticks, with a drink, and he was going to stay and talk to her. Maybe.

Delilah felt like she was waddling around more then she would ever like. Being pregnant was the worst ting in her world. She'd been so excited to have a kid, but this was just a bit much. Cadan had just vanished on her. Which was fine. She had Elliot to be around and he was great. Being at Hogwarts at least gave her something to focus on. It would be just fine though.
Cadan had actually written her and she had no idea what to do about it. They hadn't seen each other in forever. So what was she supposed to do? Fine. She'd go ahead and go. She'd put her hair up and made sure she looked as decent as possible as she got to the meeting spot. He was actually there?
She snagged a seat and raised an eyebrow at him. What was she even supposed to do now?
Okay. So. He was drinking. The more he waited, the more he wanted to get back up to his feet and get out of there. But that would be rude. It was rude to make a pregnant person come down here and then stand her up. Rude. Not that it would be the first time he had stood someone up, maybe he should do it.
Before he had the time to follow through that thought however, she had sat down across from him. "Uh. Hi," he said a bit awkwardly. This was a bad decision.

Delilah wasn't really sure what was going on. She was probably supposed to tell him that he didn't have to do anything. She should probably just tell him that she didn't expect him to be in the baby's life. But she'd already said that, right? Maybe she should just sort of wait for him to say something? "Hey." And she wasn't even too worried about this. She could just order some tea and it'd be okay.
Getting her tea, she nodded at Cadan. "So how have you been?" Did she care? Not so much now. Instead she was just dealing with this. Maybe if she had the paperwork so he gave up his rights, it'd all be okay? Would he even sign it?
"Uh," he said at the question, and then shrugged his shoulders. "I spent like... three months not coming anywhere near England?" Though he had kind of had fun in his time away from England. But it was mostly the anxiety of returning to England that had caused that. He didn't want to be having this conversation. "How about you? How are...things?" Right. This was awkward.

Right. Naturally he'd spent time doing anything other then being anywhere near her. Delilah just didn't want to deal with him, when it came down to it. Sure, she was pregnant and she was keeping it. But at least she was making this work out. "Things have been really good, actually." Despite being pregnant, it seemed like timing would be just fine. She shouldn't have to miss work to have the kids. And Hogwarts seemed willing to work with her about everything when it came down to it. "So where all did you go in your travels?"
"That's good," he said. Being pregnant didn't really sound like an awful great deal of fun, so it was probably a good thing that she was good? He wasn't really sure how this worked completely to be honest. "Being pregnant doesn't sound nice." He shrugged his shoulders. "Bit of everywhere, really. Just went wherever the wind took me." It had been fun, he'd enjoyed it.

"It has it's ups and downs." Thankfully her youngest students were eleven and at least knew somethings. The older students sorta left her alone and the younger ones just asked stupid questions she deferred to other adults. "That sounds really nice. I hope you had fun." Surprisingly enough, there was no bitterness in her voice. There was no anger or resentment in her soul. Or if there had been any previously she found herself without it now.
Kind of sounded more like downs than ups. But then so did children. Happily trying to continue avoiding that one, thank you very much. "Yeah, I had lots of fun," he said, eyeing her. She didn't seem upset, which seemed a bit weird. Maybe that meant he could get away without actually doing anything?
