Kir McLeod
That's my girlfriend!
Sun Jan 13, 2019 01:43

Kir sat at the Teppenpaw table, keeping his fingers (their nails painted a shimmering blue with black ombre effect) very firmly crossed. Which was utterly ridiculous and superstitious seeing as the votes for head students had been cast and counted long ago but it felt wrong not to. He thought there was a chance he was every bit as nervous and excited as the people who were, themselves, actually involved in the ballot. He kind of wished they would make the first years wait. They were nowhere near as important as this, and there seemed to be an interminable number of them. Though he did manage to give his friend’s cousin a cheery thumbs up when she got into Teppenpaw.

Luckily, Headmaster Brockert was not known for his long-winded speeches. Or really stringing enough sentences together for them to even count as a speech, and tonight was no different. As soon as the last first year was settled, he was calling out the names and

“YES!” Kir cheered, punching the air enthusiastically as Zevalyn’s name was called. He added several enthusiastic ‘woos’ to the round of applause for the head students, a huge smile spreading across his face as he watched Zevalyn get her badge.

There was some news about the concert, and Kir’s brain took a moment to catch up that said news was that he, as a prefect, had to help co-ordinate Teppenpaw’s performance. He had been too busy being happy for Zevalyn’s victory to actually be listening, but the words had sort of filtered through. They were quickly put to one side though. Part of him wished he could go join the Aladren table and celebrate with her, but he didn’t want The Night Zevalyn Got Head Girl to turn into The Night Kir McLeod Got Busted for Breaking Feast Rules, and just had to content himself that tomorrow he would give her the best ever double celebration possible for it being both her birthday and for her getting the badge. He had had worked out several scenarios in his mind for how he would jointly honour the two occasions, and none for how he would juggle her birthday with commiserations, because he did not like the thought of planning for a worst case scenario and because it seemed like a lack of faith.

“That’s my girlfriend,” he informed the person next to him with a nod to the Aladren table and a huge smile on his face. Unless the person was a first year, or habitually inclined to residing under a rock, there was little chance that this was news. Whilst Kir tended to keep more passionate making out for quieter places, such as between the library shelves, he was definitely not one to avoid public displays of affection altogether. “My girlfriend got head girl,” if he couldn’t celebrate with her right now, he could at least point out her achievement to anyone who would listen. It wasn’t boasting, given that it wasn’t his own achievement, but just shining a spotlight on someone who, in his opinion, had earnt that. He was proud of her. And there was nothing wrong with being proud of someone when they were awesome and amazing and wonderful. “And she thoroughly deserves it too,” he beamed.

                      Zara grinned upon hearing Johana-Leonie utter the word "cool," or something very like it. If she had mastered that word already, they would be just fine. "At home," Zara replied, when Johana-Leonie... more
