Howl and Flora
Fri Nov 12, 2010 5:48pm

Why was his hair blue? Howl looked up, hearing Evelyn's voice, and tilted his head to the side a little, considering his answer. "Because green was getting old?" he asked. "I wanted a change." He realised then how much he had changed since first year, at that moment. First, he no longer had green hair - but that was obvious - he was more confident than he was, less scared of what people would think of him, and he was less stupidly optimistic. Howl knew that people that happy got annoying sometimes.

He glanced at Flora, and then looked back down at his letter, carrying it on. Flora sighed and looked at Evelyn. "He's sulking, I think," she said. "I'm Flora. Are you Evelyn?" her brother might have mentioned Evelyn before, but she wanted to make sure anyway.

"Shush, Flora," Howl mumbled, continuing to stare down at the letter he was writing. Of course Flora was bound to find out who Kim was sooner or later, and he should have known she would make a big deal of him practically being dumped.
"Touchy," Flora grumbled.

      • Actually they call me the Drifter... Evelyn, Fri Nov 12 6:21pm
        Evelyn shrugged at Howl's rather insufficient answer, but she felt she might have been a bit tactless. On the other hand, her eyes did hurt quite a lot. Blinking them once more she shrugged again and ... more

          "Hi, Flora!" Reece smiled and sat down next to a girl with red hair, across from Flora. He'd met her at the opening feast and then Quidditch lessons, and as probably the only boy in his year who... more

            Howl took a look at Evelyn, who seemed to have something in her eye. "Maybe when I've washed it a few times..." he sighed, folding the paper up and shoving it in his pocket. This seemed to be making... more

              Evelyn nodded and smiled as Flora gabbled about her baby sister. Evelyn had learned from Howl the previous year that their mum was expecting a baby, and Evelyn had been meaning to ask Howl about the... more

                "Oh," Reece nodded, trying not to look too happy about Howl's breakup. "Cool." Frowning at the plate, he said, "Can I get some pizza with loads of black olives and mushrooms and pepperoni?" Then,... more

                  "I know," Flora replied, "I didn't sleep much over the summer." not that she did usually, anyway, but that wasn't the point. No one had this time. "Do you have a baby brother or sister, then?" she... more

                    "No," Evelyn said to Flora, "but I had to babysit for a neighbour once. The kid was only one and it was pure hell." She closed her eyes and shook her head, briefly reliving the horror that was... more

                      Reece nodded to Flora and Howl, and turned his head politely to listen to Evelyn. There was something familiar about her. He didn't catch it at first, but then his eyes widened at her story. "Wow!"... more
