Default Flourish and Blotts


About halfway down the north side of the Alley stands Flourish and Blotts, the shop noticeable by its wide picture windows displaying all sorts of gold-embossed spellbooks, any new releases warranting advertisement and the occasional sleeping cat, as the shopkeeper’s two cats occasionally decide to make the window display their chosen napping place when they aren’t underfoot. Upon entry, all that seems to be visible are bookshelves, stacked to the ceiling and absolutely filled with books of all shapes and sizes. While it may look like chaos, there is a sort of order to the shelves and various stacks of books scattered throughout the main floor in addition to those shelved. A table sits close to the door which regularly holds sets of Hogwarts’ required textbooks every summer for the ease of students who may not want to hunt them down on their own, and a staircase, even more shelves filling the space underneath, leads up to a second floor that contains shelves of the various works of fiction from the Wizarding world and beyond.

Near the center of the shop stands the counter, where the shopkeeper can usually be found and which is also the location for the occasional book-signing or other book-related event. Surrounding the counter are displays of newspapers, magazines, diaries, journals and other small items that might interest the literary-minded customer. In addition, a large, leather-bound book rests on a small stand to the left of the counter: an index of all the books sold in the shop for the use of the customers who are in a hurry or simply don’t want to search through all the shelves on their own.

Toward the back of the shop, a door leading to a storage area and the small office used for paperwork and any other business the shopkeeper needs to take care of in private, a cat-door installed as well as the cats’ food and water while they’re in shop are there. Tucked away in various corners of the shop, half hidden by shelves and very cozy, are small reading nooks containing squashy chairs and small tables for a lamp, and a larger reading area including a fireplace can be found near one of the front windows. Enjoy!

He didn’t like her because she asked about his personal life? ”… What am I supposed to ask you about?” He was sending mixed signals, for the record. One minute it was ‘you don’t know me’ and the next it was ‘but when you ask to get to know me it makes me uncomfortable’. Clearly there was no winning here.

Which only made Nina WANT to win even more. See the problem?

”Fine.” Though she wasn’t all too sure that he knew much more about making friends than she did. Last time she checked, all those times she had run into him, he had been alone too. ”How do YOU make friends then?” He could ask her those same questions and she would have absolutely no problem with it. Probably. Or she’d find ways to deflect, and that in itself was a talent.
Yes, they went to the same school but Hogwarts is HUGE and there are gazillions of students there but somehow Nina was always around. Like the universe always had their way to make them being in the same room, just like today. All those days on his day off from his kitchen crew duty yet somehow the Slytherin was also here. "Do you always ask others if they had kissed someone when you just met them on the first time?" Or that's just how she initiate the conversation? No wonder why some of her fellow Slytherin girls weren't fond of her.

Well.... Honestly Keenan had never really bothered with making friends. Like, if that particular person found him weird or thought he's not worthy then he's not going to put efforts to approached them and make them like and befriend him. Hence why he only had like.... several people whom he considered as friends or something like that. "... It just happened." That wasn't wrong, though. When he interacted with someone who apparently had same or similar interests with him then they would bond through it. And now, did they both have same hobbies? Didn't think so. Nina once mentioned he's boring because he enjoyed doing puzzles and Lego and not to bothered with science-fiction movies.

In summary, the chance of them being friends was... highly unlikely.

Perhaps HE was the one stalking HER. It was all perspective, was it not?

Nina gave Keenan a wide-eye look for only a few seconds. Shewas slightly taken aback by his snarky comment, but remained calm and poised all the same. As always. Nina Castillo was nothing if not graceful. "No," she replied casually. "And... that wasn't the first time we met." Just to be clear. They met in the library. The potions lesson came in the week that followed.

Keenan Burton was literally the most frustrating boy she had ever met in her entire life. And boys were particularly frustrating, as like, a species. So this was a heavy statement to make and she would not make it without truly being certain that it held true. Though perhaps something more frustrating than how infuriating he was, was the fact that he seemed to ENJOY being called a conundrum. As if he took his impossibility as a compliment. Nina simply looked at him, unimpressed with his answer and furious with everything else about him. There was no logical reason for his disinterest in her. Unless he wasn't into girls like that? Or maybe he wasn't into anyone like that?

Actually, the fact that he didn't seem to notice how nice her hair was or how cute her smile was or how good she smelled or how pretty she was or-- All of the abOVE was the one thing that frustrated her the MOST.

And so she did what any logical, mature, young woman would do. She took a step forward and gave him a kiss. On. The. Lips.

A quick one, mind you. Because she hadn't ever kissed anyone before and she had been saving it for the perfect moment (which this wasn't) and for the perfect person (which this wasn't). But she wanted to prove a point and the ends justified the means. But when she pulled back, her cheeks burned red and she could feel her heart-rate picking up. She regretted it instantly. Nina Castillo rarely made daft decisions, but perhaps kissing Keenan Burton in Flourish and Botts was one of those rare instances.

Ahem, yeah that conversation happened when they were in the middle of potions lesson but they just barely knew each other at that time (well, even until now he still thought Nina wasn't that close to be an acquaintance). So asking a very personal question wasn't appropriate and he had a right to refuse answering that. Not that he was ashamed of being a late bloomer or whatever the term was but he just thought to keep his private life to himself.

You know what? Keenan was done with this stupid argument. Perhaps this was his cue to leave but somehow he noticed this girl leaned closer and ...

.........................

Did she just? Yes, she did. Even though it was quick but still.... unexpected. He had never thought of kissed someone or even being kissed like... it was just a kiss, no big deal about it and no pressure if he was like the only fifteen year-old boy who had never kissed/being kissed until now. Keenan just stood there, felt the warmth of his cheeks, said no words and his heartbeat was also racing like he had run a few miles. Still not being able to break the silence, he just looked at the Slytherin in confused expression. Yes, he was confused because what should he do?? Kissed her back? Said "Thank you for the kiss?" Asked her why she did that? He was totally inexperienced in this field hence the overthinking.

Welp.

He didn't have to answer the question. She wouldn't have made a big deal had he been polite, but he shut her out immediately and the rest of the lesson was mighty awkward. As was every other one of their interactions. Especially now.

Nina Castillo did not consider herself a reckless person. In fact, she considered herself the exact opposite of reckless. She was calculative, somewhat reserved, and rarely acted on instinct alone. But here she was with Keenan Burton in the middle of the history section of Flourish and Botts. Kissing. Well, kissed. If it could even be considered that much. Was it reckless? Less than one would think it to be. She had her reasons. But at the moment, she was burning up. Her cheeks flushed pink and her eyes nervous, the girl quickly turned in a panic and cleared her throat.

Her first kiss. She had given it away. The gravity of what she had done dawned upon her. She had been saving her first one.

In all honesty, she was hoping to share her first kiss with Drewett Slinkhard... Or Calloway Bennigan... Or Hudson Lupin... Or, Józef Kowalski. In fact, there was a list of about ten boys she wouldn't have minded sharing her first kiss with and yet here she was with Keenan Burton. The last person she would have thought of.

"This is the one I needed," she quickly reached up to the shelf, picking out a book about who-knows-what and holding it as if it was the EXACT thing she had been looking for. Spoiler alert: It wasn't. She picked it up at random. Anything to shift the focus of the moment.

First kiss was overrated, he thought. Why everybody was obsessed with it? Keenan had never bothered to think about it and more focused on more important things... Such as his study. Yes, call him boring or nerd or whatever. He had been immune with all those terms ever since his days at primary school so it wasn't a big deal.

One minute she just jumped in and kissed him then next... found the book she wanted to buy? Huh, this was weird. The Ravenclaw knew she's trying to avoid what just happened or probably would act like it never happened because it looked like Nina had regretted kissing a weirdo like him. Wow. Probably Keenan would just play along with her, acted like it never happened. Except he couldn't. "You just kissed me and then you found the book that, I guarantee it's not the actual one you're going to get." His voice sounded more stern than his usual.

He would like to know the reason behind the impromptu kissing.

Overrated is a word that could be used to describe many things in this world. For example, the coffee sold at a shop for 5 sickles is overrated when the same coffee could be made at home for a fifth of the price. Gobstones is an overrated sport where there is very little need for skill and ultimately requires an abundance of luck. Witch Weekly is overrated and often redundant in it's published content. A first kiss, however, was not overrated. Nina Castillo didn't think it was, anyway.

And for the record, she had just now decided that what she was feeling was not regret for the sake of kissing him. It was regret for the sake of waiting for so long just to waste it on a moment that she hadn't prepared for. Her first kiss was meant to be perfect. Instead, it was this. And she had no one else to blame but herself... And Keenan Burton for being so damn frustrating. It was his fault too.

"Yes," she replied casually, turning to face him. She did kiss him. And then she found the book. Of course for all the subtlety that her voice wore, her complexion was telling another story. Her face was absolutely FLUSHED red. "... What makes you think I wasn't looking for a book about--" um. "the Soap Blizzard of 1378?" There couldn't have been a worse subject to read about. "I'm a fan of hygiene." There also couldn't have been a worse thing to say. Nina was slipping up. This was rare.

She had been hoping to fluster him and yet she had managed to do it to herself. This was a disaster.

Like he had said before, Keenan was not a very open book person, hence why people (especially her) thought that he was being difficult. It was his defense mechanism because he didn't want any toxic person intruding his life and dictating what should he do in order to make himself become someone who wasn't the real him. It wasn't good for his mental health. Social pressure was also bad for it, that's why he stepped away from that and just being... himself; the awkward, nerd, puzzle-lover, difficult person.

If Nina Castillo thought he was being difficult and frustrating, why she insisted to approach him? Why on earth she kissed him? Did she think a peck of her lips would change him? It was not.

The title of the book made him giving a "huh" look. Clearly she was lying about that but the Ravenclaw was going to ignore that. "Looks like my job here is done." His lips curved into a smile, a really tiny one that probably she wouldn't notice about it. Since she had found the "book", Keenan turned his back from her and walked away. If she didn't want to talk about how she just kissed him then it was okay by him. Probably now she had regretted her action just now because kissing someone like him was embarrassing and wished it'd never happened again.

It was okay for him. Just like what he always said.

It wasn't good for his mental health. Social pressure was also bad for it, that's why he stepped away from that and just being... himself; the awkward, nerd, puzzle-lover, difficult person.

If Nina Castillo thought he was being difficult and frustrating, why she insisted to approach him? Why on earth she kissed him? Did she think a peck of her lips would change him? It was not.

The title of the book made him giving a "huh" look. Clearly she was lying about that but the Ravenclaw was going to ignore that. "Looks like my job here is done." His lips curved into a smile, a really tiny one that probably she wouldn't notice about it. Since she had found the "book", Keenan turned his back from her and walked away. If she didn't want to talk about how she just kissed him then it was okay by him. Probably now she had regretted her action just now because kissing someone like him was embarrassing and wished it'd never happened again.

It was okay for him. Just like what he always said.
Yeah, well, Nina wasn't an open book either. Despite the image she tried to sell, the girl was incredibly private. And selective with the information she chose to share with others. And Nina wasn't trying to dictate what he should or shouldn't do. Aside from the talking thing. She did want him to say more words, but that was so that they could have a proper conversation as opposed to whatever this was turning out to be. She didn't mind the awkward, nerd, puzzle-lover person. It was the difficult part that struck a nerve.

Why did she approach him? .... Why'd she kiss him?... That information was highly classified.

"Wait! Keenan!?" He was just going to LEAVE?

She stood in place, helplessly. A book that she didn't want to read (or BUY, for that matter) in her hands, cheeks ablaze (STILL), and heart-rate still faster than usual.
