Regulus Black paced the length of his room once more. Something he'd done much of over the last few days--he felt caged--trapped. Nothing he did would rid himself of that gnawing feeling in the pit of his stomach.
He knew well what was troubling him, even though he tried his best to push down those suddenly odd, and bothersome ideas. But no matter his path to easing such worries, nothing ever worked...everything was back to the bleak course before him moments later.
Running a hand across his cheek and chin, Regulus had to laugh out loud at himself over the thoughts that were muddying up his mind of late. "Damnit, big brother...this is all your fault, in some ways, we're more alike than different," he muttered aloud at the irony. Yet something inside him wished to be able to gain brotherly advice, though he knew it was a moot point.
The young wizard had all but made up his mind on matters--but still this decision was major, there was a lot to lose, including his life. So to pacing he began again. But there was one thing in his schemes, if he might die, he'd do his damnedest to bring a few others to hell with him. That he vowed.
And to add insult to injury, his mother's upcoming dinner party for her more important guests, was a hindrance in his mind at well. Truly he didn't want Andromeda to go down the same path he'd found himself walking now--but there was no way to spare her, it was her own decision, but Regulus was finding it most difficult to sit back and keep mute. He liked Andi...very much so, and knew the darkness that awaited her if she was taken in by the bold seduction of his mother's acquaintances. He knew well how their words and propaganda had swayed him from a very early age...so the temptation was most real.
