But a little here and a little there worked wonderfully for her. It just wasn't her fault that her eyes were bigger than her pockets and absolutely the fault of all her favorite brands coming up with new product for the summer season - only ONE of which would sponsor her which was just rude.

What wasn't so rude was the sickle that came rolling towards her and spun to a stop after hitting her shoe. "Don't mind if I do," she hummed to herself as she pocketed it. Still was not enough to get herself a butterbeer...which now meant she was debating with herself as to whether or not she really wanted one or if she had just seen the cart and the color and smell had enticed her - that was good advertising. But then she noticed that one of her peers (the one with the purple backpack and was just as likely to fall into a Venomous Tentacula as she was to consider it endearing) was being messy. "...you trying to lay a trail to catch a niffler or something?" she questioned with her right brow raised.


Phoebe didn't mind being perceived as in need. It wasn't like she WASN'T in need, because she technically was, and she liked having money for books and other things, so. She could deal with the sympathetic looks of parents who had parents if it meant that there was a butterbeer involved.

Phoebe had finally managed to pick up most of the coins- all but two. One had rolled further away, and the other one was in her classmate's pocket, but Phoebe couldn't find either. She crouched down, looking for her two missing coins.

"What? Oh." Phoebe flushed in response to her classmate's question, which made her feel some type of way. "No... I'm just trying to get enough money for butterbeer. Have you seen my two missing sickles? They have to be around her somewhere." Phoebe was distressed, because she wanted that butterbeer badly!! And yeah, so could always try and ask people for more money, but she'd earned those two sickles fair and square! She wasn't ready to consider them lost just yet.
