Carrick Pendergast
Trying new things, looking forward to one old thing!
Mon Apr 21, 2014 14:32

Carrick landed well enough, with his short legs from the portkey he had barely gotten his bearings when he heard his sister wish him a good term and using that horrid nickname for him. He mumbled that his name was Carrick, but new it was useless, Alannah always got what she wanted and to her he would always be Carrie, her dolly from childhood. Something had changed with Alannah over the summer. It had been while Cayden had been for her yearly visit. She had become distant and Carrick wasn’t sure why.

The fifteen year old shrugged and looked around for his betrothed, he had a gift for her, a sort of “it your fourth year let’s celebrate” gift. It was a necklace that held a silver and jade shamrock. Carrick had seen it while shopping last week and thought it would just perfect on Cayden. He liked spoiling Cayden, she was unlucky in the fact that her husband would be a dwarf so he figured if he showered her with enough love and gifts she could over look his size.

He didn’t spot her right away and if he didn’t see her at the Opening Feast he’d catch her in the common room before bed. He had missed her the last month, they had owled some but not much and it was never the same as being at RMI. The Cetus walked over to the fire sat down and waited for the feast to begin. Thankfully, the new Deputy Head was short spoken and soon food was coming out.

Carrick, grabbed some odd fruit he had never eaten before off one of the trays and smiled at the person to his right. In his thick Irish brogue he asked. “Know what this is mate?” he held up the green, orange, and red fruit.
