How had he gotten here. Well he had gotten to The Three Broomsticks via Apparition and then walked in, but the reasons he had even come to Hogsmeade hadn't even been close to his radar a year ago. A year ago he was very much single, and here he was hours early to meet his girlfriend once she finished work. He had finished his own work early, and hadn't wanted to head home, so the Three Broomsticks was a decent spot to just relax for a few hours and try and muddle through his thoughts.
Evan had a mug of mulled mead in front of him as he sat at a table more towards the back. He forgot how quiet the place could be without all the students. How many times had he been in here during his time at Hogwarts? Those had been simpler times without much responsibility. But who was he kidding? He had spent most of his adult life so far without any real responsibilities either. All he had to do was show up to practices, games, and events his team made him do. It wasn't that difficult. He didn't even really have family responsibilities to deal with.
That was all going to change, and he didn't even know how he was going to process everything. After all, nothing really changed your life like becoming a father right? At some point in his life he wanted to have a family of his own, but this had come as a little bit of a shock, to both him and Rose. Evan had just come to terms with the fact he was even dating someone. Had just told Rose he loved her. And then come to find out she was expecting his child. They had told her family they were dating at Christmas, but they hadn't told about the pregnancy just yet.
It was just all overwhelming for him. Outwardly he looked like he had it all together. Inside he was absolutely freaking out. It was why he was taking just a few hours to be away from it all and just try and calm his mind off of it. He took a sip of his mead, the warmth welcome on the cold day. He was lost in the thought of how he was going to tell his father, if he was going to when he noticed someone had approached. He was used to people coming up to him with the quidditch career so he looked up at the person with a smile and said "Hello there"
