Unfortunately tagging Niccolò York

He "remembered".

Nothing in his note had said it, but Amelia knew. If he did not, he would not have bothered with her, more likely than not naturally preferring to ignore her the way he had for years prior. Niccolò's mind was now assuredly swimming with memories that were only half true, the fabricating in which she had taken part fogging him down, altering his reality. Suddenly she mattered, and that was why his request scared her.

It was nothing extreme, nothing demanding. Niccolò simply wished to meet her at the Student Government Association's bowling party. What exactly bowling was, she did not know, her knowledge limited to "a Muggle game". But maybe he knew enough to think it would be fun. Or maybe he just wanted an excuse to see her. Either way, it was not exactly going to be fun.

The blonde faked a smile when she last saw her roommate, struggling to fight the incredible knot in her stomach, not sure if she was more afraid of Niccolò's affection or the possibility of enjoying it, of falling into her own deceit. Alone on the elevator to Pearl Street, she closed her eyes and breathed deeply, mentally preparing herself for this maybe-date. But the doors opened too soon, and with outward poise, Amelia repressed the inner shaking. Niccolò is just another boy, she tried to tell herself. A boy who... thinks he's in love with you. Great.

Her only source of strength was the clicking of her heels on the pavement, an irrational testament to her femininity and power. The sound of her steps provided something that resembled pride. Even this gift, however, was taken away when she was handed a disgusting pair of clearly used shoes. Revolting! Why did bowling require special shoes, anyway? So far, this thing was turning out to be awful!

And it was only getting worse; Niccolò was in sight.

OOC: Godmodding of Niccolò approved.
