I prefer "urban vagabond"

"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 didn't really know how to be friends with boys, he was glad to have met her. He'd met Howl before, too, though. The boy who . . .

"Whoa," he said. "Blue." His eyebrows furrowed and he looked down at his plate, then back up at Howl. "Uh," he ventured, feeling a little hopeful, "I heard you and Kim Baden broke up." He paused. "Is that true?"

He was also certain that he was the only boy his age who liked girls as more than just friends, but he'd right away seen Kim and thought she was brilliant. An hour later he'd found out she was dating Howl. Now that didn't seem to be true any more. He knew he didn't stand a chance, two years younger, but he was curious enough to keep tabs on it. Besides, most people said he was pretty mature for his age. He had no idea what they meant. He didn't want to grow up - eleven was a good age to be, probably forever.

"I'm Reece," he smiled at the red-haired girl.

    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

        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
        • I may adopt that as a title...Evelyn, Sat Nov 13 8:32pm
          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
