Shelby Ewing
I'd rather be drawing
Mon Feb 21, 2011 12:51am

Shelby didn't argue with Delilah, but rolled her eyes and picked her sketchbook back up, wiping the dust off with her hand. These floors were as filthy as half the school's population. "You'd think they'd bother cleaning up one or the other," Shelby complained, sticking a pencil behind her ear. Delilah grabbed her and they were off at a terrible pace.

Shelby couldn't see anything this way. It was too much of a blur. What was the point if you couldn't notice anything? Delilah didn't care. She hardly noticed anything.

They got to the party with the other boy and Delilah finally bothered asking. Could have been a mudblood for all she knew. They both looked to Sloane.

Ah, Sloane. Shelby had heard of her. A little at least. In an instant she wanted to draw her. Something about her eyes. They were cunning... they had something to them. Something not many eyes had. Like they contained the present, past, and future of everything and everyone around her. Fascinating.

Her thoughts were interrupted by the boy Delilah brought along. "That's Delilah," Shelby said. "Delilah Bell. I'm Shelby Ewing. No need for you to remember unless you know the right people, though," Shelby answered. The implication was there. If he looked confused, she wouldn't bother with him. Not for a moment.

        Delilah smirked proudly at her own introduction. Torn seemed to already knew Sloane Rissanna and Damon Clay, so he was probably fine. "You're Pure, right?" she asked, and shrugged to Shelby. "He's in ... more

          She was drinking a wine cooler. Drips of condensation slowly traversed down the bottle, some wetting her hand, and Torn was lost in the image for a moment. He only just pulled his eyes away when... more

            Shelby was satisfied when he said he was pure. Delilah was bound to get herself into trouble one of these days with assumptions like that. Shelby had already seen half a dozen muggleborns come... more

              Delilah might have been a kid, but she was no fool. Torn definitely knew Sloane at least. Personally, Delilah wasn't sure how to answer her own question. She remembered being in play jumpers, playing ... more

                Indifferent as Torn seemed around these two, the three of them clearly had the same upbringing, the same childhood. Irritating memories surfaced of him being dragged to some party or another, having... more

                  Shelby's cheeks went instantly hot and she knew there would be two spots on her cheeks that would be nice and pink, as if she'd dressed up as a doll. She scoffed. "Whatever, that was just stupid and... more
