Lily Spencer, Pecari
Seeking a motivated partner.
Wed Nov 15, 2017 02:58

This feeling was something akin to depression, she supposed. Lily dropped into her seat without a fuss, in her usual row in the back. She was wearing a hoodie with the top up, covering her short brown hair. Her hair wasn't brushed and the hoodie was a size too large for her, but she didn't think anyone would care to notice. Lily dropped her bag on the floor and didn’t bother taking out any of her materials – there was no point, really. She knew the new professor wasn’t going to say anything of significance. All he was going to say was in the textbook.

Instead, Lily rested her chin on her arms. She observed Philpott at first, but soon wandered off into her own thoughts. Jack had been a right arse as soon as they’d gone home after not speaking to her for weeks after the Quidditch match. They’d had a row about it but were fine now. Poor Jack. Lily didn’t think Quidditch was in his future, no matter how much he loved it, but she wasn’t going to say anything like that to him directly. Their cousin, however, was extremely talented. She loved watching him play. His personal life was a bit of a muck, according to Mum, but that didn’t matter when he was a brilliant Beater.

If she looked at herself, she was certain others perceived her life as being in the muck as well. Her friends back home had abandoned her, she was just too strange and boyish to be fancied by anyone here, yet wasn’t boy enough to enter into the unspoken ‘brotherhood’. Adam had tried to comfort her when she’d told him, but he didn’t really understand. She couldn’t tell even him what had ended her friendship with them, the real reason. She didn’t think she’d be able to tell anybody, if anyone would even care to listen. Lily’s small shoulders sagged.

She knew what her sister would tell her right now: ‘Buck up, Lily, you’ve still got friends at Sonora! People still like you and you’ve never been one to doubt yourself or brood like this.’ Lily buried her face into her arms, resting her head there for a moment before sitting up properly. She just needed to forget about it.

The Draught of Peace didn’t seem too difficult, but Lily had no motivation to do this today. She needed to work with a friendly face, someone a bit more motivated. “Want to be partners?” she asked the nearest person who fit these qualifications. “I can get the ingredients we need from the cupboard.”

                    Jozua shrugged, trying not to look shifty as Lily questioned his certainty that wizards would like her. “Sure,” he agreed with ready confidence, figuring that was a safe ‘prophecy’ to make. “I Saw it ... more

                      Lily grinned at his teasing and would have punched him in the arm if he hadn't been holding the porcupine quills. She didn't feel insecure about being liked much, but she knew she wouldn't care if... more
