Default Park Bench


Placed strategically along the north side of the street, there are about five park benches on either side of the street offering a place for the weary to rest their tired feet for a moment. There is one situated between Potage's Cauldron Shop and Slug and Jiggers Apothecary, one between Madam Malkin's and Flourish and Blotts - and then on the opposite side of the street, between Magical Menagerie and Eeylops Owl Emporium, and Quality Quidditch Supplies and Scribbulus Writing Implements. The fifth bench is right before Gringotts Wizarding Bank, clearly placed there to let you know you've reached where the street begins to curve.

Take a seat and take a load off if you like, these benches are the perfect spots to sit and chat with friends while you take a break from shopping, or if you've come from Florean's you might be looking for a spot that you can sit and finish off your ice cream before it melts. Try not to be a bench hog though - if you're here for too long the benches themselves might get sick of you and nudge you off so that somebody else can sit for a while too!

What did catch his interest? Books, cubes, owls, nice hair and eyebrows, sweets, printed socks. It was a list that Nina probably knew by now since they'd spent quite a lot of time together at Hogwarts, not including that one time she used his shirt (that he was wearing, mind you) to blow her nose. "I-It was more of if you found something interesting in th-that magazine, Nina...." Because he wanted to know what she thought, as he wasn't even a reader of Witch Weekly.

And with her permission, he gladly took a seat beside her, placing the paper bag on the floor between his feet. "What b-brings you here today?" Surely she didn't come all the way to the Alley from Alicante to simply read her copy of Witch Weekly, yes?
She liked that he was a blushing mess. It was a good look on him. However, she wouldn't say these nice things without warrant, as it would mean admitting to thinking these thoughts without any solicitation. And while Nina Castillo very much cared about what others thought of her, she also did not want to give out compliments willy nilly. It would make her too much like Juliette. Someone who, while very beautiful, ought to withhold some of her sunshine, lest it drain her entirely dry.

AnD FOr the record, she looks at that time (re: that time she used his shirt as her snot wipe) VERY fondly. It was the first time they met. The first person she connected with. The first person who would unwillingly give her his shirt to use as a snot wipe. That time spoke highly of his character and she wouldn't change it for the world. And yes, she did notice his shirt. She payed a lot of attention to stylistic choices. His, by the way, were improving. But this wasn't the point, the point was that Drewett Slinkhard was asking for Nina's opinion. "Oh," the girl gave him a surprised sort of look. She was... confused? It made her go silent in thought for a moment, as if to decide whether she did find anything interesting. But really, it was in deciding whether or not to admit that she didn't.

"I like looking at the pictures," was the answer she decided to go with. A) It wasn't a complete lie B) It wasn't a complete truth. Her gaze followed his paper bag with curiosity, giving him a tilt of her head when they made eye contact again. "My mother had to meet a client in London, she thought it would be nice for me to visit with friends." But Nina didn't have friends, so she was visiting a bench instead. "What's in your bag?" she grinned curiously, her legs swinging freely beneath her.

She really had a mind of her own, now. Which was fun, but also... slightly irritating at times. She was definitely her mother's daughter.

After gathering a few things from a couple shops, Daphne pushed her stroller down the alley, only to stop it part way because Penelope had started throwing a fit about wanting to walk.

"Alright, alright, calm down. I'll let you out." Stopping her stroller near the bench where another mother sat, Daphne went around unbuckled Penelope from her seat. But then Penelope was distracted by the baby boy sat on the lap of the woman on the bench... and was staring.
Tessa had really picked up cooing at the small child in Russian thanks to the husband. Her poor child was probably not going to be aware that he's bilingual for awhile. Her husband really only spoke English when she was around, but she'd been practicing Russian for the past few years. This was incredibly useful for when she wanted to spy on super sappy daddy talk. It was adorable and worth spying on.

So adorable in fact, she now found herself doing that exact thing. She was going on about how much she loved her little baby boy and how precious he was.

While he could remember clearly how she used his shirt as a snot wipe and how mildly horrified he had been on that moment, Drewett wouldn't change things either because it started their friendship. That alone was enough reason to not want to trade that day for anything. He did not regret it,. Having to stand beside her while her legs had been wobbly that day, or letting her meet his owl, Pietro, which wasn't exactly a friendly introduction but at least owl bites were avoided.

And truth be told, this Ravenclaw actually did value her opinion. Why shouldn't her opinion matter? Drewett wouldn't have an answer to that question. He could, however, hear in his head Eviloise's possible answers and he didn't want to entertain that. He liked Nina, and he only wished the people who didn't like her gave her a chance. Oh, and fashion-related praise is all thanks to one Jolie Chosen, by the way. Drewett appreciated each and every one of his Slytherin friends. Wasn't that obvious?

.......Pictures. Drewett tried to mask his confusion with a small curl of his lips. A little smile. He wanted to question her answer, but he knew enough to not push someone to share more than they wanted to. He respected that. "P-Pictures of......boys?" It was literally the first one that popped in his mind. Girls liked looking at boys, didn't they? He momentarily forgot that he was a boy himself and, if only he realized what he said, this would have been awkward. "Oh, this?" He raised the paper bag a few inches off the floor, his other hand ruffling his hair. "New t-trousers. I outgrew my old ones."

Unfortunately. On top of that, growing pains sucked.

To be fair, had their relationship been what it was now back then in that moment, she wouldn't have used his shirt as a snot wipe. So perhaps he could take solace in the fact that he would never be her snot wipe ever again? She had far too much shame for that. He had stumbled upon her in a... less than ideal circumstance. Though the day did eventually turn around. Aside from her one blunder in exposing her extreme fear of living, breathing aniMALS, snot wiping, and the whole ugly crying thing... It had been a good day. One of the greatest. A day destined for the books, that's for sure.

And the fact of the matter is that Nina shouldn't have been surprised that he valued her opinion. Yet... She was. Because, well, typically people valued the opinions that they wanted to hear. Nina would know, she was very accustomed to giving boys the opinions she knew they wanted. Like when Calyx talked about plants, Nina suddenly loved plants! Even though, really, she felt the same way about magical plants as she did for animals. Or when Hudson talked about his buildings and designs, Nina was an avid fan of architecture. When in truth, she didn't really care far beyond the aesthetics. Perhaps the only times she truly gave her real opinions was when she was around the girls and that only ever made her the bad guy. She lived in two extremes, clearly.

This was also the reason why spending time with Drewett was so confusing. He was one of the only boys who ever turned it around on her. Asked for her truthful opinion before giving hints as to his own. It was slightly unsettling and why she always found herself slipping up, though she was sure he was too dorky to notice. Exhibit A.

Nina let an easy, quiet laugh escape her mouth before looking at him with a mischievous glint in her eyes. "Why are you interested?" she teased. "Plenty of those kinds of photos, but some are a little tasteless." It was a summer edition. Hardly any clothes. Which she didn't entirely mind to be frank. Was she amused? Very. He really did bring this upon himself, did he know? "Now that you mention it, I could tell that you've grown taller!"

Penelope was hobbling over to the bench and that was just fine. Daphne spent a couple moments rearranging things in the back of the stroller - a couple shopping bags and Pen's jacket just in case it decided to rain (London weather was unpredictable). She heard some baby babble and glanced up over the stroller to see Daphne standing next to the lady with the baby on the bench.

What she didn't realize was that Penelope, the chunky, darling three year old with a wild curly mop on top of her head, was repeating a few words in Russian that Vladimir had said to her a few times. Penelope had picked up on quite a few of them over the last year or so and had recognized some of the sounds the little baby was making.

Drewett, in fact, did find solace in the thought of no longer having to sacrifice any of his shirts. However, should the occasion arise, he wouldn't mind. Those were usually unexpected events, were they not? He preferred a not-crying Nina, but he would be there for a crying Nina too. He knew how awful it would be to feel a certain way and not have people around. Likewise, he'd respect if she didn't want him around too.

And if anything, Drewett never meant to be confusing. He was the type of guy who wanted to hear what everyone had to say, half because he didn't really like doing most of the talking and half because he didn't want anyone to feel shut out. Neither did he mean to be confused himself as well. It was probably just in his nature, and he was truly trying to be less oblivious when it came to girls.

But apparently he had dug himself a hole he was not prepared to dig deeper into. It was only then when he realised he had asked about boys and now, the tables had turned. Welp.

"I-I'm not interested in pictures of b-boys," Drewett helpfully pointed out, though he was now slowly realising that this would be a difficult way out of the hole he had just dug for himself. "You just weren't b-being specific, so I assumed...." Was it bad to assume? Probably. And no, he was not going to look summer edition photos unless he was subjecting himself into another Blushing Drewett mess. Not today. He was glad for the sort of shift in discussion about his trousers and his unpleasant experience of growing up. "R-Rather inconvenient, actually, but...really?" It was a dumb question because how could anyone miss it? He had grown an inch and a half since he started his fourth year.

She appreciated that about him. While his bedside manners weren't exactly the best (far from it), he tried and for that, she would be forever grateful. Most people just turned the other way. She was a stranger, and yet he stopped. It took slight prompting and a few dramatic sighs, but in the end he helped. He didn't even know her and he did that. That's how she knew he was good. He was one of the good ones. And the fact of the matter was that she probably would be a crying Nina some more... Let's face it, she's been a crying Nina a lot lately. And when it happens this next time around, she probably would seek him out. On purpose.

Which was perhaps more telling than anything else she could do or say. Because typically, she wouldn't want ANYONE seeing her in that state. With mascara running down her cheeks, looking as if she was an absolute mess, life falling apart. She liked people to think she had it together. She was one of those. But did secretly envy those who felt comfortable enough to be messy and confused in public. Like Drewet!

Being confused is in his nature. It was actually very admirable and far from anything Nina would ever let happen to herself. Besides, there was a difference between faking a lack of intelligence and straight up digging yourself into holes.

"It wouldn't be weird if you were," incase he needed to hear that. She didn't think he did.... But now Nina Castillo wasn't entirely sure? Had she really missed the signs this whole time!? Please. No. For the love of lipgloss, please no. "Assumptions are dangerous things to make," she said knowingly. She gave him her classic eye roll, meant to be far more playful than it was to be mean. His question was ridiculous and she was sure he knew it. "No." She attempted to keep a straight face, but her eyes were an absolute giveaway.

A day of walking and guitar-playing and more walking and picking pockets and even more walking was starting to take its toll on Kaiser. Not that he wasn't used to this sort of thing, but there was only so much activity you could do on very little food before the exhaustion took hold, and he was just about at that point. Dropping down heavily onto one of the park benches, Kaiser lowered his bag and his guitar down to his side, but kept a firm grip on both.

Allowing his thoughts to briefly stray to the food provided by the nearby street vendors - the smell was so tempting, but he knew he could get more for his money (or for no money at all) elsewhere - Kaiser stretched out his feet in front of him, and finally allowed himself to relax, just a little bit.

It was a great day to spend the majority of it in Flourish and Blotts sitting in a corner and reading. Which to Mercy was almost a perfect day. would be more perfect if Nicola Bernice Jarvis was there also but you can't get anything perfect. The shopkeeper didn't even come over to keep asking what she was doing so it really was great. She was starting to get hungry and had to get up and leave. Walking around she saw a vendor and bought whatever it was they were selling because she nowadays has more money than she knows what to do with.

Taking a bite into it. she turned and saw Kaiser there sitting down on a bench with a guitar.

Looked actually in decent shape, which surprised her

"Hi Kaiser. How are you?...um can I sit?"

Tessa looked up when she noticed a child near her. "Hey there." she greeted. Then, to her surprise, the toddler was speaking a little Russian. "I see you speak a little. Hear it at home?" she asked the little girl. She then looked around to see who owned this small child before spotting a very blonde woman.

Ah. Yes. This kid must be hers.

He was one of the good ones. And the fact of the matter was that she probably would be a crying Nina some more... Let's face it, she's been a crying Nina a lot lately. And when it happens this next time around, she probably would seek him out. On purpose.

Which was perhaps more telling than anything else she could do or say. Because typically, she wouldn't want ANYONE seeing her in that state. With mascara running down her cheeks, looking as if she was an absolute mess, life falling apart. She liked people to think she had it together. She was one of those. But did secretly envy those who felt comfortable enough to be messy and confused in public. Like Drewet!

Being confused is in his nature. It was actually very admirable and far from anything Nina would ever let happen to herself. Besides, there was a difference between faking a lack of intelligence and straight up digging yourself into holes.

"It wouldn't be weird if you were," incase he needed to hear that. She didn't think he did.... But now Nina Castillo wasn't entirely sure? Had she really missed the signs this whole time!? Please. No. For the love of lipgloss, please no. "Assumptions are dangerous things to make," she said knowingly. She gave him her classic eye roll, meant to be far more playful than it was to be mean. His question was ridiculous and she was sure he knew it. "No." She attempted to keep a straight face, but her eyes were an absolute giveaway.
That was the most he could offer, really. His efforts. And Drewett could only hope that, despite his terrible skills at comforting people, his presence would be enough even if he knew that it wasn't. So the concept of her seeking him out whenever her dorm mates were being mean wouldn't come unsurprised. He'd tried telling Eloise to chill but honestly, not even a professor could stop that redhead. Drewett has had his fair share of Eloise shenanigans in the previous term so he understood. It was perfectly fine to not have it together.

And, for the record, Drewett quite found his messiness as inconvenient. Like now, for instance. He knew he unconsciously brought this upon himself, and he was already mildly twitching. Being oblivious wasn't something worth applauding for, Nina Castillo.

"I-I know, but I d-don't." To be clear. He'd heard stuff about him and Hudson. It was just... no. Really. Two boys can be good friends only, alright? "I'm aware... I'm sorry th-that I assumed. You still weren't b-being specific, though... so will you be specific?" He half smiled. So there was that, but he hoped she wouldn't push more on this subject because he hated digging deeper into holes.

......No? Drewett blinked. He could tell she was joking but he was also very good at acting clueless. It was only fun when he wanted to be clueless..

His presence was enough, honestly. And even if he didn't know the right words to say, the words he did say were enough to make her laugh. That itself did wonders. So maybe not being good at comforting people was actually a good way of comforting people? None of these thoughts were anything Nina would attempt at verbalizing because it all sounded silly, even in her head, but hopefully he knew that he appreciated his presence that day. And that she'd continue to appreciate it when she did seek him out as a crying Nina.

She liked his twitching. It was his brand.

"Okay," she nodded, SECRETLY so relieved. There still wouldn't be anything wrong if he was. She would just feel incredibly embarrassed and completely blindsided. So yes, Nina was relieved and she believed him. There'd be no further pushing of this subject, thank you. But again, she found herself pausing. Be more specific? ..... "Well, I like looking at the new trends in fashion, see?" she diligently flipped through a few pages to show him her favorite spread. "Colors are making a comeback, as are overalls and tasseled earrings." She pointed.

"But the articles are written in poor taste," she flipped through to another page. Celebrity gossip. "They are all written with strange syntax, a minimalist vocabulary, and brute grammar. The topics stay the same just about every issue and there's hardly anything worthwhile in them anyway." And honestly? "It's insulting." She had been stewing on all of this for quite a while.

... Um. Was that specific enough? She was decidedly avoiding eye contact.

"I'm kiiiiiiiidding," she gave him a LIGHT, playful shove. "You are very tall and handsome, Drewett Slinkhard." She topped it off with a classic, innocent Castillo grin.

At first glance, you may be able to tell that Penelope and Daphne were related. They had the same unruly curls, though Penelope's were darker. Penelope also had darker skin, implying that her father (who was very much not in the picture) was darker skinned. Penelope also had Daphne's nose. But Penelope could apparently speak Russian. Daphne was very much American and spoke zero Russian, so clearly Pen was paying more attention to Vladimir than Daphne was. Oops.

Daphne heard the other woman and laughed lightly, watching Penelope stare at the baby. "Occasionally, yeah," she said with her very clearly American accent. "My, uh.. boyfriend is Russian." Boyfriend was a loose term, considering they hadn't actually ever... determined what they were. But they had been "together" for long enough that it was weird NOT calling Vladimir her boyfriend.

"Do you want to say hello, Pen?" Daphne came around the stroller, picked up her three year old, sat on the bench and set her on her lap so she could get a good view of the woman's baby. "Say hi," she whispered to her, but... alas, Penelope was shy. So she just stared instead.

Being a twitchy ball of anxiousness was, indeed, his brand. Drewett wished it wasn't, though. That was the thing about brands. It was something constructed by the people around them. In a language that Nina Castillo probably understood better, it was like branding something as Gucci when, in reality, it was a Prada.

..........Okay, so maybe that wasn't how it worked. Scratch that. He didn't know if the analogy there worked. But regardless, he liked being a wallflower, standing by the corner observing everyone and minding his own business. When the spotlight was shifted towards him, though, he'd turn into exactly what a Drewett Percy Slinkhard was expected to be. However, he would never admit it, but he didn't want to be remembered as that.

Drewett watched her as she explained, in detail, what she meant. That was exactly what he wanted to hear. He liked listening to people talk and share their opinions. That's how he knew how someone viewed the world around them, and it intrigued him a lot of times. He liked trying to see things in another person's point of view. "I-I take you wouldn't recommend this magazine, then." The Ravenclaw said, a little smile making its way across his lips. He wasn't a fan of gossip either. "Why d-don't you put it down and then we can...th-think of something else to do." Perhaps she would like that better than reading something that she found insulting, right?

He appreciated kind words very much, but compliments (no matter how many times he's heard them, apparently) still always made him all wiggly. Fuzzy on the inside, of course, but Drewett never knew how to accept compliments. Did he chuckle? Or make it seem like he had a big head and go all 'I knew that'? And it showed because he was now ruffling his hair again after being called tall and—Merlin, please—handsome. "Uhm, thanks...." His ears were probably giving him away because they were tingling and turning into a faint shade of pink. Nina Castillo, honestly.

His ears were probably giving him away because they were tingling and turning into a faint shade of pink. Nina Castillo, honestly.
Other things were his brand too, though. It was limited at twitching. Soft boy smiles, hair ruffling, calming laughter. Those were all part of his brand too. And while Gucci and Prada were indeed words that made much more sense to Nina Castillo, the analogy didn't make as much sense as Drewett Slinkhard would probably like for it to.

But she did appreciate the effort. He was learning. But hopefully when he did receive the spotlight (which he did, in fact truly deserve) turning into what others expected him to be was what... he wanted to be too. Hopefully it was authentic. Because Nina Castillo did a similar thing. She preferred to observe (though attention was never unwelcome), but when eyes shifted towards her, she acted exactly how others wanted her to be. And while it wasn't authentic, she did it anyway.

Which is why she didn't often share her opinions in the way that she just had. Unfiltered. She had still been avoiding meeting his eyes until he made his observation, which, made a subtle smile appear along her lips. "No, not really," finally she looked up to meet his eyes. "Oh," his next words surprised her. "I like that idea." Was she grinning? Yes, indeed she was. Maybe if Keenan saw her now he'd rethink some of his thoughts. She didn't always pout. Not when she was with good company.

Nina didn't give compliments out too often, again there was a philosophy behind this. She was highly selective with her words. And while Drewett was feeling all sorts of uncomfortable, Nina found the situation absolutely hilarious. She didn't laugh, but her eyes were giving away her thoughts. "You're welcome," she smiled sweetly at him. Drewett Slinkhard, honestly.

The shopkeeper didn't even come over to keep asking what she was doing so it really was great. She was starting to get hungry and had to get up and leave. Walking around she saw a vendor and bought whatever it was they were selling because she nowadays has more money than she knows what to do with.

Taking a bite into it. she turned and saw Kaiser there sitting down on a bench with a guitar.

Looked actually in decent shape, which surprised her

"Hi Kaiser. How are you?...um can I sit?"
It wasn't uncommon to hear footsteps on a crowded street, so Kaiser didn't turn to look at who had approached him until he heard them say his name. Seeing Mercy, he smiled lightly, as his gaze lingered on the food she had in her hand. Trying to ignore the pangs of hunger in his stomach, he shook his head as though to clear it, and tore his eyes from Mercy's food and tried to focus instead on her face.

"Mercy, hi. I am... good..." he replied, now feeling slightly more conscious of the fact that it had been... however long it had been since he'd last had a proper shower. Kaiser reached up to his hair and kind of tried to make it look slightly more presentable, before nodding and gesturing at the seat beside him. "Yes, of course." Another small smile. "How are you?"

She didn't really even know what she ordered besides it smelling delicious as the Ravenclaw smiled and took a seat. It was apparently confetti popcorn and was suppose to fizz in your mouth. which was an interesting concept even if she did not particularly like soda. But wanted to try it anyway which she took a handful and started eating it.

"Good... just spent the last couple hours reading on the floor of Flourish and Blotts. It was nice and actually not that crowded considering....Do you want some? I think I bought too much?"

Mercy asked holding it out the popcorn. She might have bought too much for her to eat. Even if he didn't want anything she wouldn't think anything of it. And thinking to herself she really needed to start on her newt stuff if she wanted to stop worrying about her OWL grades and focus on something else to worry about...anything really.

Tessa was admittedly surprised when the woman turned out to be a fellow American. One that was dating a Russian! Maybe they could all be friends! They even both had kids. The only thing that may be a concern was Misha's profession.

"Aww. How sweet. I married mine." Her Russian boyfriend, she meant.

She waved at the little girl before moving her kid's hand in a wave. Hehehe. Being a mom was fun.

And thinking to herself she really needed to start on her newt stuff if she wanted to stop worrying about her OWL grades and focus on something else to worry about...anything really.
As Mercy took up a seat beside him, Kaiser found he couldn't keep his eyes off of the popcorn. Was he staring? He was probably definitely staring, but he couldn't help it. He was just... so... hungry...

She was talking. She was talking to him, and he was barely listening, distracted as he was by the food and finding it so difficult to concentrate out of pure hunger. But what he absolutely did pick up on was that offer. Kaiser looked between Mercy and her food a few times, just kind of processing her words to make sure he'd heard them right. She was holding out the popcorn to him, which made him think, as a matter of fact, yeah, he'd heard perfectly.

"Oh, well... yes, actually. I would like that," Kaiser replied, smiling lightly, and reached across to take some popcorn, trying to be mindful of not taking too much, even though his body was crying out for it. "Thank you." It was at that moment that he became fully aware of just how grubby his hands were, and so Kaiser tried quickly to continue the conversation, a wild attempt at distraction. "So... what were you reading?" She had said she'd been reading, right? ... Well, even if she hadn't, it was a fair assumption, given who he was talking to.

Meanwhile, Kaiser ate some of the popcorn, barely noticing the fizzing sensation, grateful as he was to just have something. He did do his best not to completely lose his head and stuff the entire handful of popcorn into his mouth, but it took a great deal of self-restraint.

As much as he was enjoying getting the Head Boy badge in his letter, he was not as overjoyed as his father had been when he had seen Dorian holding the badge in his hand. It came to the point that he would not stop congratulating him throughout the whole day and...oh Merlin's Beard...he started to call his family members to tell them the news.

All in all, Dorian escaped his home the moment he had heard his father talking in the study room to them and went to Diagon Alley to just hang out.

He wasn't wearing his badge, actually he had left it at home on his nightstand. It didn't feel right wearing it when he wasn't even at school yet.

He took a seat on an empty bench and placed a bag with a newly bought second hand robe because he had grown, obviously. He leaned back against the bench and looked up at few white fluffy clouds up and the sky, trying to see figures in them.

He took a seat on an empty bench and placed a bag with a newly bought second hand robe because he had grown, obviously. He leaned back against the bench and looked up at few white fluffy clouds up and the sky, trying to see figures in them.
Just like previous summer breaks, Rylee had found a way to keep herself busy for the better part of the summer. Her days had been filled with family, vacations, training (for Quidditch and dance competitions), plant work, babysitting and getting herself ready for the upcoming new term. And that wasn't even the half of it really.

So far she was having an amazing time. Nothing was standing in her way of happiness these past few weeks. Not even heading into DA to get her supplies for next term. Which is why she was here today.

With her cat, Lamb at her side she made her way down the pavement. Spotting a familiar face, Rylee made her way right over and slide down onto the bench near him. "Declan! Hi!" Cue the usual bright smile she always had on her face.

Dorian jumped slightly in his seat at the sound of Rylee's voice for he had not heard her sit next to him. He let out a small chuckle at what he had done before he moved his eyes away from the clouds and looked at the Gryffindor beside him.

"Hey Rosie, those names never get old do they?" he said as he looked down at the cat near her feet and smiled. " what is her name?" he asked and reached out his hand to pet her.

"Did you read the daily prophet article about that we are going to study at Beauxbaton this year?" he still didn't know how to react to this news because he had wanted to graduate from Hogwarts after surviving 6 years. " I don't speak a word French, should I buy a dictionary or something?" he was deadly serious right now. And mildly freaking out.

Oops. Rylee hadn't intended on startling him at all but it had happened. Smiling warmly she couldn't help but giggle a little when she heard him laugh first.

"Nope." Perhaps one day she would stop using the names given to them years ago.but that day wasn't today. "His name is Lamb." Yes, she had named her fluffy little male cat Lamb. And he was the cutest kitty ever not including Cosmos who was at home. Lamb noticing the hand reaching out to pet him wandered right on over to Dorian. "He's very friendly."

Rylee nodded. "I did. I'm actually rather excited about it." A change from Hogwarts was just what she needed. "No? Well that's alright. I know some and I'll be learning lots more before summer is through. I can help you, if you like?" She had plans to visit Ana, Jarrod and Benji for a bit before summers end, they could all help her become more fluent in French. "A dictionary wouldn't hurt though?"

"Lamb?" he repeated and look down at the cat as it came closer to his hand. " That is a really cute name" he said truthfully and scratched the cat behind its ear.

It didn't came as a surprise that Rylee would enjoy going to Beauxbaton. He himself was a bit worried about it. And not just because of the language barrier... " I think that just the basic words and sentences will be enough to survive" He laughed.

He took his hand back and reached inside of his bag where his new yet old cloak was in and pulled out a liquorice wand. He put one in his mouth and held up the other. "Want one?" he asked.

"So, something else happened a few weeks ago when I got my Hogwarts letter..." he had been wanting to tell someone about this but he was too afraid it would sound like he was bragging. But Rylee was a friend and he should tell his friends first. "They gave me a Head Boy badge..." he trailed off. "Do you think I will be the first hogwarts Head Boy at Beauxbaton?" probably not but if it were true.... He took another bite from the liquorice.

"Mhmm," Rylee hummed softly. "Thanks! When I first got him he was really small and all fluffy. He reminded me of a tiny lamb." Truth. Cue the instant purring of Lamb and pressing his furry self into Dorian's hand. "I think he likes you." She laughed.

"If that's all you want to know I'm positive I can help you learn some." She had a good feeling that Dorian wasn't the only one that was going to need some help with the language.

Rylee nodded accepting the offer of a liquorice wand. "Thank you." Takes the offered one from him. "Would you like a sugar quill?" Always has some with her, not including recently when they hadn't been able to get owls or leave Hogwarts. That had been a disaster she is more than happy to forget.

The almost sixth year turned all her attention onto her friend. "Oh?" What happened?! Rylee's eyes went wide and she smiled brightly. "Head Boy! That's amazing, Dorian!" Better believe she was hugging him for this news! "You're going to be great." And she wasn't just saying that because they were friends either. She honestly knew that he would do a splendid job. Rylee considered his question for a moment. "I really don't know but even if you're not it's still pretty cool." At least in her eyes it is.
