It's what people look for in a partner, right?

"Sounds good," Cleo smiled, as Parker tried to think of how he could help. She was glad to pair up with a first year. After all, Professor O'Malley had expressed a preference for them doing that, and it didn't hurt to be in a teacher's good books in case she forgot her homework or caused an explosion. Plus he didn't know her as an accidental pyromaniac. It was good to have a fresh chance at first impressions. "Two pairs of eyes are better than one, right?" Even though she knew the gardens well, and knew her potions plants, she didn't tend to keep her eyes open for them when walking around. She liked gardening, rather than plant spotting, and tended to spend her free time in the vegetable patch or the green houses.

"I'm Cleo," she replied, "Nice to meet you too.

"Ok..." she ran her eyes over the list again, trying to think how to describe things or break down the task to include Parker. It wasn't a position she was used to being in - the older role model. Cleo was an only child of an only child. There were no siblings or cousins for her to play with at home, and even at school, it wasn't a role she'd adopted frequently. People had tended to baby her a little, either pandering to her choices or wanting to pet and look after her. When they played house, she was always the little one, or the baby. The mummies in class would brush her pretty blonde hair, or cuddle and shh her. "So... Moly is a flower, and so are asphodel and moondew," she explained, deciding to break the plants down into their broader groups first. "Dittany is a herb, Puffapods are the seeds of a flowering plant, and Wiggentree is actually, like it sounds, a tree. Moly is white, or can be blue... Wait, so is asphodel - white, I mean. And Moondew," she frowned, trying to decide whether it was mean of Professor O'Malley to give them such similar looking plants, or whether it made things easier in a way. "So, I guess, step one is keep your eyes open for white flowers... Puffapods have seeds inside that flower when they're touched, so I would guess that they're the most likely to grow by the edges of the path, or even out onto it - if they dispel their seeds into areas where they're likely to get touched, it speeds up their growth cycle," she explained. "The pods are pink. I reckon dittany will be in the herb garden, so you don't need to worry about that, any maybe we can do the wiggentree after as well, because we'll be having to keep our eyes to the ground for all the flowering plants?" she suggested, not wanting to overload Parker with too many descriptions all at once.

"You spent a lot of time outside back home?" she asked, in reference to his comment about finding plants.

OOC - sorry this took me so long! I needed to look up all the plants on the wiki, so I wasn't able to write it whilst offline, and didn't have much other types of writing time.

        Cleo seemed nice enough and whenever she smiled Parker became a bit heated. It could just be this cloak I have to wear. Parker thought, knowing it wasn't, or at least not entirely. Cleo listed off a... more
