Turning the tables.
Tue Nov 28, 2017 17:53

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 enough without everyone else knowing she'd kissed a rotten boy, and a Muggle at that. Whilst she expected pernicious behaviour from her lot, she'd been taken aback by this incident. It was a lesson for her that not all Muggles, like pure-bloods, were trustworthy.

Lily didn't remember why she'd been nervous to tell Jozua now. It all suddenly seemed less traumatic than it'd felt a few minutes ago. Maybe there was some sort of magic in unloading her burden onto a best mate. She took another deep breath, this time releasing all the stress she had been carrying with her and sending it off in a sigh.

What Joz said next was unexpected. Lily didn't think she would ever gain as much attention from wizards as her beautiful older sister, but she had never thought much of it. Charlotte was the stereotypical proper pure-blood whose goal in life was to be a proper wife and mother. Catching the eye of handsome wizards was sort of Charlotte's prerogative, certainly not Lily's. Still, it was nice of Jozua to say and she couldn't help but smile. "Is that a prophecy then?" joked Lily, feeling more like herself again. "You really are the best friend anyone could ask for, you know that?"

Lily looked over the potion, watching as the colour slowly changed. "Just wait a bit longer, I think." After another minute, the simmering potion was undoubtedly purple. "OK, shake it in. I'll stir it once it turns red." She hoped they hadn't waited too long for the colour-change, but as long as it didn't explode they would be fine. That was, however, still a possibility with Jozua Sparks as her partner.

"You don't talk about other witches much," she noted as she began stirring the powdered quills into the mixture. "Haven't you fancied someone over the years here or back home?"

  • Glad to hear itJozua, Sun Nov 26 15:45
    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... 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
                  • Nope, I was wrong. Catastrophic failure!Jozua, Tue Dec 5 08:59
                    For a whole minute, Jozua thought he was in the clear. But once the potions disaster was averted, and it was quietly bubbling away with the appropriate grey color it was supposed to have, Lily went... more
                    • *screams*Lily, Wed Dec 6 13:56
                      “What?” Lily might’ve been genuinely confused about his answer if his facial expression didn’t give it away. It was a good thing she wasn’t holding anything because her body went slack, including her ... more
