I've got a note and a question at the end of this drabble.



Young Master Scorpius was dressed. Tilly had dressed him. Young Master Scorpius was wearing his shoes. Tilly had tied them. Young Master Scorpius was in his robes. Tilly had fastened them.

Young Master Scorpius nodded.

"Does Young Master Scorpius wish for Tilly to be changing his socks for him?"

Young Master Scorpius shook his head.

Tilly's ears drooped. "Young Master Scorpius is wanting Tilly to go?"

In answer, young Master Scorpius threw his arms around Tilly and squeezed, startling her—but not enough to drop the purple sock she held.
