He glanced at the young man as they walked.
There had been a telltale pause as the Ministry boy had spoken of Aleksandr, as if he'd been compelled to add the slightest concession about his condition to a friend of the family. It was not all stiffly polite formality, as he would have expected.
"How is he holding up?" he asked, then paused. "Ilarion, that is."
