Well so could I!

When Riley had pulled off his shirt, he could’ve sworn he saw Zakir blush a bit. Riley, smiled a bit cockily. He knew he was good looking, and he didn’t mind Zakir admiring him. The fact was Riley missed the attention he got from Sebastian, and having another male around his age looking at him made Riley feel a bit better than usual.

The sixth year couldn’t help but chuckle at Zakir’s answer. It always seemed like he was trying to avoid answering questions. “Acceptable is never a good night’s sleep.” he said with a smile. Riley swam over near to Zakir and grinned at him when he asked how he had been.

“Busy, I decided to graduated early so getting fit for auditions into some schools in New York. Plus between Quidditch, and rehearsals I’m running myself ragged.” He admitted. He liked staying busy, it kept his mind off well other boys. Before Riley wouldn’t have admitted it but Zakir wasn’t bad looking, he could imagine keeping his mind off Sebastian with the other boy. Yet, did he really want to walk down the road of closeted Purebloods again?

He shook his and smiled at him. “What about you? Ready to get out of this school?” He asked with an arched brow genuinely curious about Zakir’s plans after RMI. If he was like all normal Purebloods he was off to get married, just like Sebastian. He forced another smile while shoving Sebastian out of his mind again.
