Glad to hear it

Jozua pulverized his unicorn horn. He was kind of glad they were talking about this in potions, during the part of the lesson where he got to ground something into powder. Ed kissed Lily. That was bad enough. That she hadn't wanted to be kissed, that he turned the rest of his friends against her afterwards, that was unforgivable. Ed. It wasn't much to go on, as far as tracking a guy down went.

At least Lily had punched him. That was good anyway. She could serve her own revenge. Though a pair of broken glasses seemed a poor vengeance for the crime to him. He nodded in complete agreement that she should have hexed the guy.

"Adventurer's Honor," he promised solemnly, crossing his heart, as he vowed to keep it all Top Secret.

He finished with the unicorn horn and dumped it into a measuring cup. The Draught of Peace did not require precise measurements, as they were supposed to keep adding it until there was a color change, but the cup would make it easier for pouring out the powder in a controlled manner. "Lots of blokes will fancy you," Jozua told her loyally, hoping to dispel any lingering doubts Lily might be feeling in that regard. "Too many," he added, under his breath, not meaning for her to hear it, but a sharp ear might have been able to pick out the words.

He watched the potion for a few moments, frowning as it simmered. "Is that purple yet?" he questioned, not quite sure what the proper term was for the potion's current chromatic state. It was close to purple, but it wasn't entirely done being blue yet. He readied the porcupine quills, just in case.

  • Consider me impressed.Lily, Fri Nov 24 02:52
    Lily thought she’d known what a good friend was before. A good friend was someone who could play pretend and not laugh at one’s childishness or adamance to fight monsters even at twelve. A best... more

        There was nothing left to crush into powder. Instead, Lily put swept off the remnants of dust on the desk with her hand. "Thanks," she replied to his oath to keep it a secret. It was embarrassing... more
        • Oi, hey now, don’t do that.Jozua, Wed Nov 29 10:08
          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
          • Well, why not?Lily, Thu Nov 30 15:26
            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
            • I don't wanna talk about itJozua, Thu Nov 30 21:14
              Lily wasn't talking. That was never a good thing. Lily was a talker. If she wasn't talking, it was because she was thinking, and there wasn't anything about what he'd just said that he wanted her... more
              • Oh. I see.Lily, Fri Dec 1 13:22
                Lily had not expected Jozua’s answer. She had imagined more adamant denial and maybe admitting he liked someone, not be madly in love. She waited a moment to analyse his tone for sarcasm, but found... more

                  Lily again was not talking. That always made him nervous even when he hadn't just admitted what he'd just admitted. He hadn't mentioned any names, but how many girls did he really hang out with or... more
                  • For the time being.Lily, Sun Dec 3 15:28
                    Despite her unhelpful advice, Lily was relieved to hear Jozua decide to be a total coward for now. It was still strange to hear Jozua talking about this third party and it made her feel... more
