It was difficult to know for certain, but being away from Durmstrang - and Sweden - seemed to be doing good for him. Thorir had found himself feeling more energetic in the past month. He felt like he had when he was a zoologist. Eager to perform his job, and wanting to chase after any opportunities that came his way. He’d even made attempts to be there for his students more often. Helping those who asked for assistance, providing support, or doing whatever it was that was needed of him. To make things better his moods were less dreary, making him more approachable and less...less intimidating. Or at least that was the impression he hoped he gave off.
To put things straight, Tor felt a change in his own mindset. The different environment was helping him relax more, and with each passing day, he thought he could feel it more and more.
The end of winter was within sight as evidenced by the slowly melting snow. Out of all the places he’d frequented in the area around Hogwarts, Tor had found himself spending very little time in Hogsmeade. For once he’d found himself taking advantage of the weekend to visit the village. Wandering through the streets, the tall blonde Swede kept took care to avoid bumping into any students who scurried past him. He manuvered his body to be wary of bumping into anyone he passed by while keeping an eye out for a place to stop by for a drink.
It was only a short walk before he approached the Three Broomsticks. Judging by how many customers went inside, there was no question that it was a popular establishment. Whether or not it would suit his own taste was another question, but he had faith that it would provide a perfect environment for him. A place to relax and forget the stresses of work for awhile, and kick back and enjoy a drink or two. That was all he needed.
Pushing the door open, he made his way inside. Eyes observed the interior silently before he made his way to the front counter. When it was his turn to place an order Tor decided to go with a bottle of butterbeer for the time being. He wasn’t in the mood for anything too strong, no matter how tempting the firewhiskey might be. That could wait for later when he wanted a little more kick and not a drink he could relax with.
He accepted the beverage once it was brought to him, paying for it while offering a smile to the employee who had served him. With drink in hand he turned around and immediately set out to find a table to sit at. Walking through the rows, Tor took notice as to exactly how busy the Three Broomsticks was. Students meeting with friends at one table, and another contained adults discussing business. There was a wide range of individuals inside, with the crowd only making it more difficult to find an empty table for himself.
It only took another few minutes for him to locate a table, one in a back corner and near a window much to his surprise. With long strides Tor moved toward it, wasting no time grabbing a seat and claiming it for himself. It was a perfect location to sit, one that helped him relax right away. Butterbeer in hand, he opened his bottle and took a sip, savouring the flavour as it hit his lips.
Tor turned toward the window to observe some passersby, then turned to glance around the interior of the bar. His afternoon seemed to be going perfect so far. The weather hadn’t been terrible and he’d managed to take advantage of a break to relax. It was what he needed. Taking another sip of his drink, Tor allowed a small smile to grace his features. He turned back to look out the window enjoying the views of the village from his corner inside. Even if he didn’t mind being alone, Tor felt a need to go out and socialize more. Maybe once he was finished he’d seek out one of the other Professors who had travelled down to Hogsmeade. Or perhaps company would find him in the bar. Whatever came first he’d be fine with.
