Olivia Knight
Here comes your princess!
Sun Dec 15, 2013 16:44

Olivia climbed into her multi-piece gown and slipped on all the accessories before stepping on front of the mirror. She shouldn’t have spent this much, she thought as she examined her reflection. Aunt Ava had paid quite a noteworthy bill to acquire this costume, but once Olivia had told her she had a date for the Halloween dance, there had been no reasoning with the woman. Still, Olivia felt rather guilty having so much money spent on her.

She finished pulling up her hair and slid into the glass slippers. There she was, a brunette Cinderella. It would go well with the Prince Charming idea she had recommended to Demitri, which was mostly what she was going for. The low neckline in the front inspired several minutes of insecure questions, but it was too late now to change her mind.

Mostly, she was just nervous about messing this up. Demitri’s friendship was a pleasant surprise in the Draco’s life, and she hated to ruin it, but part of her was hoping to reach more than just friendship. She wondered whether or not she was seeing more than was actually there, but Mitri had seemed so nervous when he had asked her to the dance, and if she did not mean something special to him, he would not have attached so much care to it…. right?

Brown eyes scanned her reflection once more before glancing at the clock. Oh Merlin, she was late! What if Demitri thought she was standing him up and left?! She hated to hurt his feelings like that! Olivia hurried down to the Rec Center, careful not to lose a shoe if not only because it would be extremely inconvenient, but the irony would be murder.

Fortunately, she made good time, and she found Demitri leaning against a wall near the entrance. Holding her skirt to avoid stepping on it, the fifteen year old hurried toward him, a grin spreading into her cheeks. “Hi,” she breathed as he grabbed her gloved hand, his lips dancing across her knuckles, and a rouge blush coloring her otherwise fair skin.

“Good Evening, Olivia. I-uh… It’s really nice to see you.”

“You too,” Olivia beamed. “Your costume is really great; where did you get it?” It did not exactly match what Prince Charming wore in the Cinderella Muggle movie, but it was actually better, she thought. It looked so real! “It really suits you,” she added. Mitri looked just like a real prince!

                • Me too.Olivia, Thu Jan 2 19:42
                  Berating sentiments plagued Olivia's mind; how could she be so uncoordinated? And she was wearing heels , so that definitely did not feel pleasant on Demitri's poor foot. He had been so kind, either... more

                        "But what makes you think I'm so special? You hardly know me, Demitri, and while it's really so nice of you to say, you can't possibly know that." A moment before, Demitri had been open and... more

                          Inevitably and unsurprisingly, Olivia had screwed everything up. She knew she had done it when he stepped away. His touch suddenly absent, she felt as alone as she had ever been. It was solitude in a ... more

                            “No, please!” Brown eyes closed and shoulders slumped ever so slightly at the words spoken beseechingly by the girl. A hand caught his own, and he turned around to meet the brown eyes. Demitri felt... more
                            • Slipping, slipping, slipping. Brown eyes watched, praying to the heavenly nothing. Please. No. Please! His hand in hers, the skin so warm against her own, and it felt like infinity. An unspoken... more
