Here comes trouble again
I better act carefully
She knows what she's doing to me
Jack stared at Romilda as she walked into the common room shaking her hair out and the droplets from the rain flew around. She then looked around with a bored expression until she caught sight of Jack then she wetted her lips and came over to him.
"Jack." She smiled winding her hair around her finger and leaning down to kiss him on the cheek giving him a complete view down her shirt but she pulled up to quickly for him to stare but as she sat down next to him her smile let him know that she knew he was looking. "How've you been?" She asked innocently placing her hand on his knee.
"Fine." He muttered staring at her then he clearing his throat. "Working on the Charms essay." She nodded and started sliding her hand up his leg leaning her face closer to his but she froze right before their lips could touch.
"Fun." She whispered and then stood crossing the common room going up the girls dormitory. Jack sat there staring in front of him and then he buried his face into the nearest pillow and screamed. She was going to be the death of him.
A handful of moments
I wished I could change
But I was carried away
Katie sat at the counter her back rigid, hands clasped tightly as she stared at the little bottle in front of her filled with a purple liquid.
Don't turn green she prayed in her head turn red please turn red.
She stared as the purple slowly lightened and she dug her nails into her palms as the vibrance began to leave the color and then all that was left was a mellow green. Katie stared at it defiantly as the door slammed shut across from her and Roger entered their flat.
"Babe!" He called out coming into the kitchen. "What's going on?" He asked the strain evident in his voice as Katie continued staring at the potion.
"I'm pregnant." She said finally not taking her eyes off the bottle and its betraying green color.
This is how an angel cries
I blame it on my own sick pride
"Hey love." Anthony said coming into common room and leaning down to kiss Padma but she dodged him and then took a breath and stood up looking him right in the eyes. "What's wrong?" He asked his face masked with concern.
"I need to break up." She choked out.
"What?" Anthony asked the concern melting into hurt.
"I don't love you." Padma said and Anthony bit his lip. "Not as much as you love me. I just can't be in a relationship with you. Maybe we could've if the Carrows and Snape weren't in charge but right now it's just too much for me." She explained further. His eyes started to cloud over and she moved closer but he stumbled back and shook his head.
"Don't." He said painfully. "Just don't touch me. I can't..." he trailed off and she wrapped her arms around herself. "Go please." He whispered quietly as tears began to creep into his eyes. Padma nodded and walked past him out of the portrait hole. She couldn't be with someone she didn't love. She just couldn't.
I've fought it for a long time now
While drowning in a river of denial
Zach's eyes followed Pansy as she left the Great Hall and shortly afterwards he said a hurried goodbye to Susan who rolled her eyes knowing where he was going. Pansy grabbed him by the tie in one of the side corridors and slammed her lips to his pushing him into the wall. She kissed him forcefully and roughly her teeth dragging over his lips. Then the tapestry was ripped back and she pulled back from him and looked over at Blaise who was standing there eyebrows raised. Then she turned back to Zach and slapped him hard across the face and went to stand next to Blaise.
"He forced himself on me." She blubbered to the other Slytherin who threw an arm over her and led her away from Zach glaring dangerously. They walked down the corridor her hips swaying back and forth then she tossed her head back and winked at Zach. He ran a hand through his hair and fell back against the wall. Fuck, he was in trouble.
Love me, hate me
Kiss me, kill me
Daphne winked at the fifth year Ravenclaw who was staring at her as she exited the cupboard and then ran her thumb underneath her lips as the girl's boyfriend followed Daphne out of the broom cupboard zipping up his pants. She tossed her head back and laughed gleefully as the girl burst into tears. Daphne headed straight for the Great Hall and slid into her seat next to Astoria and across from Pansy.
"Who was it?" Blaise asks looking amused as he buttered his toast.
"Stelley." She answered smirking. Astoria turned to her with raised eyebrows and Daphne rolled her eyes. "So what if he has a girlfriend? She's a bitch." Pansy cackled and then the owls soared in, a beautiful tawny one settling down in front of Daphne. She took the letter not looking surprised and then began spooning some yogurt on her plate.
"I can't believe Pucey thinks you're in love with him." Blaise remarked. "Why don't you dump him?"
"He gives me nice presents." Daphne shrugged. "And I barely have to see him since I'm in school still. Win win."
So it's over, this time I know it's gone
Salt water, tasted it to long
"Seamus." Lavender whispered rapping her knuckles. "Seamus." When there wasn't a response so she opened the door and walked in but her breath caught in her throat. He was in there all right. His eyes were bright red, his hands were clenched tightly, he was sitting on the floor his back leaning against the foot of his bed. "Seamus." She said going over to him and sitting down on the ground clasping his hand in hers. "Shay." She whispered.
"I miss him." He finally let out with a sob. "I miss him and I'm scared for him. What if he's dead or the ministry captures him. Lav I'm scared." She didn't say anything as she knew she was terrible at comforting and would probably make it worse. Instead as Seamus's head fell into her lap she leaned down and kissed him on the forehead and stroked his hair softly as he cried onto her skirt.
