That's what everyone says when they sit by me

"Don't know her," Slate shrugged, instantly uninterested. Clearly she didn't have any good ideas about hair color anyway, so he wasn't going to give her that much thought. Flora. Huh. He'd remember the name. "Why wouldn't it show up?" he scoffed. "Don't you dye it white first, then go over with the orange?"

He swallowed, and admitted, "Well, none of them said anything really about it, but my aunt married a blood traitor, and he still hears stuff because his mom's secretly a blood traitor sort of but not really, and apparently Rissanna's mom talks all the time to everyone about everything, like all of them do, they all just talk all the times. Ugh. Adults," he rolled his eyes. "So that's how I knew."

But he twisted his mouth curiously, picking at his hamburger, sesame seed after sesame seed popping off like buttons. One bounced onto Howl's plate; another flew in Damon's direction.

He ignored the accusation that it wasn't his business.

"Do you even get to pick at all?" he asked. "Do you want to go out with her?" Girls were still that interesting, far-off thing that he didn't really want to have much to do with. But the idea that someone else might was fascinating. He couldn't wait until he was one of those boys who could make girls flutter their hands in front of their faces when he walked past. It'd probably be because he'd be so amazing at Quidditch. "She doesn't talk at all," he added, french fry in her mouth. "She's probably really stupid. What if you had stupid kids?"

Slate understood everything just great, and he talked all the time. It was the dumb kids who couldn't answer questions in class.

"What if your parents set you up with-" Slate started on Howl, but then the name caught in his throat. "Someone?" he finished, turning slightly pink. He still hadn't shaken off that memory of Kim saying he'd tried to cuddle.

    "Flora; she's in Quesne, started this year." Howl shrugged. She was great, really, they'd just not spoken a lot since starting school. That was a good thing though - he was glad Flora wasn't relying... more

        "I'm not sure," Howl said, furrowing his eyebrows. In all honesty, he was actually terrible at using hair dye, sometimes ending up with a funny coloured forehead after he'd finished. He shrugged and... more

          Slate, who considered himself to have an excellent temperament, was beginning to get a little annoyed himself. Sure, he didn't know half of what he was talking about, but that wasn't for Damon to... more

              Slate's heart was going faster, thud-thud-thud and he had his wand out in his hand while Damon talked. His mouth tightened, jaw clenched, he felt engorged with rage. Sure his mom's name was Magenta!... more

                " Wife? Don't be such an idiot!" Okay, he really had to start being more creative with his insults. "Anyway, you're the one hanging out with mudbloods ," Damon said, nodding in Howl's direction. Howl ... more

                  "Hey!" Slate roared, when Clay called Howl a Mudblood. Howl was his roommate, and friend (whether Howl knew it or not), and just because Slate was a Pureblood, it didn't mean half the people in his... more
