Richard left his encounter with Tanzy feeling angry and guilty. He was angry at himself, he had thought he had gotten through all the angst that his mother had put him though. Guilty at making Tanzy cry. That was wrong and he knew it. Richard was climbing, rather running up the stairs leaping two at a time trying to make it to the Gryffindor Tower before he lost it. He was making good time up the stairs until he turned the corner running smack dab into someone. His hands reached out and caught her before she fell. Unfortunately, they also reveled eyes that were swollen and red, tears waiting to fall.
