And not thinking about new pranks, thinking about actual real deep thoughts.
It was a rare mood to catch the spunky boy in, as he was normally out somewhere causing mischief. he saved these types of uncommon feelings for times when he could be alone. This time, it was during lunch. He could go without a midday meal for a day to ease his overactive mind.
The quiet was very peaceful, another rare thing to surround Landon, as wherever he went, noise and ruckus seemed to follow.
Today all he could think about was his brother. Wilson, who was long dead, would have loved Hogwarts so much. Landon felt that his kid brother would have been in slytherin had he survived to the age of going to the magical school, as he was a very cunning and ambitious child.
Hah, funny how his family valued Ravenclaw and yet the Riley children are in any house but Ravenclaw.
Or, at least, they would be if Wilson hadn't dropped dead one day.
