Evelyn Stones
A moment between us.
Sun Aug 5, 2018 01:01

Evelyn was momentarily surprised to see her friend, and even more surprised to find that they were still friends. She hadn't had a chance to find out about Ness' feelings towards Pecari students and had been more than a little concerned that she would be unwelcome in the other student's social circle. Apparently, this fear was unfounded, and Evelyn's expression of blank shock turned into a grin. She snapped shut her book, muggle relations quickly set aside, and sat up straighter. This was difficult in as large and poofy a chair as she had managed to find to read in.

"Ness!" Evelyn blurted. "I'm so glad to see you. I want to be roommates, too." She frowned, thinking of her own dorm experience. Pecari wasn't bad, but Ness was so easy to talk to, and she didn't like the idea of being separated for the next...forever.

She pressed her lips-- a vibrant shade of coral blue-- together in a sort of sad smile. Ness was sad, too, and that made her sort of happy in a weird way.

"Sit with me," she said, making room on her own chair. It was large and the two would fit easily beside each other.

"That was Malikhi you saw with the slime," Evelyn laughed. The memory was a happy one and a recent one, but still tinged with all the weird feelings of everything that had occurred since then. She was also mildly worried Malikhi would think she'd been trying to escape him by leaving so early, but decided that she couldn't waste time worrying about everything that other people thought. She had herself to take care of first and foremost, and had to trust her friends to do the same.

"He's really fun. I hope you guys get on. He wants to be a Chaser, too! I told him I'd come to games, I hope I can see you both play!" Evelyn had a near overwhelming urge to hug Ness.

She wasn't sure how much of that was just desperation, but it was certainly accompanied by the thought that crying on a friend's shoulder sounded lovely. However, so did a nice morning together. She chose the latter.

"How was your night? I missed you loads, but I guess now we can find out people's secret stories twice as fast. Your sibling's in the house with the girl with the big hat, right? That's kind of an in!"

Evelyn knew she was rambling, and she sort of regretted wearing her hair in a ponytail. It was a habit while she was reading, as it was easy to put up and take down in no time, but it left her feeling exposed when she couldn't brush her hair out of her face. It also revealed her chunky jewelry, orange cacti earrings and a dark blue beaded necklace. The latter clacked as she adjusted herself in her seat, trying to avoid brushing too closely against Ness. She wasn't quite ready to make this friend uncomfortable and didn't want to push any boundaries. She also was just nervous, although she couldn't place the reason.

OOC-- Ness sitting with Evelyn approved with Ness' author.

                      Evelyn wasn't sure how much she could get into lip synching herself, but watching drag queens at a disco something or other do it sounded amazing. And rooming with Ness for two weeks? She wondered a... more
