Well that wouldn't be very fun, now would it?

His voice was only too familiar to her ears. "Oh, it's you again," she grumbled as she approached him, though she didn't really mean it and her mouth tugged up in a faint smile. She'd been wondering if she'd see him again. Lee raised her eyebrows at him, spinning her bat idly between her fingers. "What a record indeed. I've come to the conclusion that either you're a magnet for trouble or my own personal stalker with a death wish."

Her eyes widened as he reached for her basketball. "No wait, don't touch that-" Within moments of his hands closing around it, her charm had started up again and the orange ball began thrashing about wildly in its desperation to get to her. She looked at him apologetically. "Uh, could you just hang onto that a moment?" Not waiting for an answer, she set her broom down and her bat beside it before unsheathing her wand and flicking it towards the ball. It stilled almost immediately and she moved closer, poking it with a finger to make sure it wasn't about to come back to life. "You're such a spaz," she said to it before glancing up at him. "No, it's a... a Muggle ball, actually. I was looking for a Bludger but the shed was locked, and it didn't feel right to break into it when Bradford wasn't around, so I improvised," she muttered a bit defensively. Her gaze hardened and she turned away. She still remembered how his brother had acted towards her and how he'd just sat there; of course she remembered. And yeah, Aaron had reassured her that he couldn't care less, and she wasn't the type to be easily offended either. But it had still hurt. "You should probably put it down before it gets your hands dirty."

Lee took a few steps away and looked up to the clouds, tracing her eyes across them as she searched for the remaining balls. She tried to ignore him, but her mind was just so bothered and confused that it was impossible to not feel him standing there. Her tie with Muggles had led his family to despise her, and she couldn't help wondering why he'd even be with her now when that hatred was probably shared by him as well. It didn't make sense and the whole thing just frustrated her. There was no reason for her to care about him or what he said. He was just some guy, he shouldn't matter. She screwed her eyes shut and exhaled slowly before opening them again to cancel the charm on a soccer ball hurtling towards her, watching it fall to the ground as her thoughts returned to him. He shouldn't matter, so why did he?
