Chance would be a fine thing
Wed Feb 14, 2018 07:47

Eek. So Lily had secrets. Secrets she now wanted Ingrid to keep. That wasn’t exactly hard – Ingrid had a limited number of people she could tell, and she wasn’t really all that gossipy, unlike a lot of Pureblood girls. But that was exactly why she didn’t want to be burdened with other people’s secrets. Secrets were like having a powerful curse at your fingertips, one you weren’t entirely sure how to control… And then, if it came out, there was all this fallout. There would be suspicion from Lily that Ingrid had been the one to betray her. There would be people questioning whether, being close to Lily, she had known this kind of thing was going on…

“Your secrets are safe with me,” she promised, “Just… try to not get disowned, yeah?” she requested.

The party for sure sounded interesting. Drinking and dirty dancing. She’d heard of less formal parties at college where that kind of thing went on… She’d seen the non-Pureblood contingent dancing at school events. Some of them tried to emulate proper dancing, but some just seemed happy to move around to the music. Or to move in on each other.

“Ugh, you’ll never believe it,” she rolled her eyes, when Lily asked what Theodore had said. “He forbade me from seeing him. Even if Freddie wasn’t super cute, I’d go after him now just to annoy Theodore. Starting to see each other would have been nice,” she sighed, when Lily asked if she and college boy were still seeing each other. “My family watched us likes hawks.” Ok, so Jemima’s eyes were a little less vigilant than Theodore’s. They’d been able to push the boundaries a bit more when she was “supervising” with her nose stuck in a magazine, but it had been hard to take it beyond teasing and flirting. There had been one night where she’d slipped out… But she shied away from telling Lily. She preferred her secrets to stay that way. At least until she knew…. “What happened with you and your guy?”

    It was certainly not proper to be seen hanging about Muggles, but Lily took pride that she wasn’t from such a high-profile family that pure-bloods waited thirstily for some sort of scandal to pounce... more

          Lily seemed to be sure she wouldn’t be disowned for her wayward behaviour. Ingrid was still slightly unconvinced. Or rather, even if Lily’s family wouldn’t disown her, that there wouldn’t be other... more
