He's a miniature house lion
Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:07

Albus weaved his way between Ayla’s ankles, purring loudly as he rubbed against her. Usually she’d scoop him up and kiss his ears at this point, but her attention was fully on Victor. He was, after all, pretty cute. The Teppenpaw girl couldn’t decide if he was handsome on his own, or if the fact that he was pureblooded made him more attractive. Either way, she didn’t mind his company one bit. Her heart leapt when he mentioned seeing a lot of each other regardless of being in the same house. What exactly did he mean by that? Did he want to see her more often? That wouldn’t be the worst thing ever, the 11 year-old decided as her mind threatened to run away with daydreams of wandering through the gardens with Victor.

“I hope so!” She said with a dimpled grin, as she brought herself back to reality. There was, after all, a good chance that he meant they’d be seeing each other in classes. “So far, my roommate Gwen and I get along just fine. Do you like yours?” Ayla wanted to ask what they were like, or if they were purebloods as well, but refrained. She didn’t want to come off as gossipy, even though she was very curious about who was who when it came to the other students in her year. Instead, she left it simple, if Victor wanted to divulge information regarding his roommates, she imagined he would do so. Plus, even if he didn’t, she could partner up with them in class or something later and find out first hand.

“I haven’t been in yet, not since orientation anyway.” She said, letting her green eyes drift towards the labyrinth before falling back on Victor. “It sounds cool though! Maybe you could show me around sometime?” Ayla asked, with a hopeful tone to her voice. Mother had always said it was good to show interest in things people you were trying to get to know where interested in. She said that it gave you more things to talk about and showed that you wanted to learn about them. Mother was always busy doing something social, so the girl figured she knew what she was talking about and tried her best to employ the woman’s wisdom. “Since you made it out alive, and everything, I mean. I’m not the best with directions, I’m afraid I’d get lost forever if I went alone, but I’m curious to see what it’s like.”

Ayla glanced down at Alby again, who was now stalking a butterfly rather unsuccessfully. He was adorable, but a hunter he definitely was not. The girl laughed a little as her cat shook his butt, rather unstealthily, as he prepared to pounce. She brushed some of her long blonde hair back from her face as she looked back to Victor to answer his question about the boys in her house. “Yes! There are two; Sawyer, who is a musician from Massachusetts, and then the other one I haven’t really had a chance to chat with.”

There were few things in life that Ayla Tremaine loved more than her cat. She lit up when Victor asked about him, revealing the dimples on each of the girl’s cheeks. The petite blonde stooped to pick up her large white cat, and hoisted him over one shoulder. “This,” She started, still smiling, as she turned so that the feline was facing Victor. “Is Albus! I call him Alby though. And a number of other silly nicknames, but yeah. He’s a cute little dope.” She said scratching the cat between the ears before turning back to face Victor. “Did you bring any animals? Or do you have any at home?

    Well, if all other pureblood girls had been siphoned off to other houses like Ayla had, that would explain why there were only boys in the group of first year Crotali. Victor was quite relieved – it... more
