Re: Project F

Leo was in a good mood, which was rare enough in itself, but he looked it too. Wearing a shirt of navy blue (which was alarmingly bright by his standards) he sauntered along the corridor towards his study lab and leaned heavily against the door frame.

"I'm better," he grinned. Blackwell had been lenient, considering it was his first offense. She had accidentally called him Miss Hardy several times out of habit but given the circumstances, his defence of one of her own students against one of the notoriously difficult Bs, he'd managed to come out of it with a very reasonable week's worth of detentions. He also had to take on the job of Blackwell's TA until she thought he'd put enough work in to counteract the duel but that was nothing compared to what could have happened to him.

Nurse Flowers had done a pretty good job of fixing him up too. He wasn't nearly as used to injuries as his sister, who came and went twice in the time he was there and both times gave him a wary look, but he was young and healthy and bounced back surprisingly quickly. Georgia Derby had't been so lucky, with her injuries or her reputation.

Now he had something planned to put that smile back on Grace's face, the secret one she gave him when no one else was looking. It was a brilliant plan too, if he did say so himself. So he'd asked her her to meet him in his study lab, where the project they were working on with stolen flobberworms was being guarded under a heavy web of spells. She looked bright and lovely and eager. He held out his hand for hers.

        Grace’d tried her best to be patient. Flobberworm care required patience. Merlin, patience was boring. But if she lost these, she’d have to get new ones. Actually Thom would have to get new ones.... more

          "Aww, Grace. C'mon! What did I say about giving them names, huh? They're for practice. They're not pets!" He peered over into the container which was stuffed with too much lettuce and had a strange... more

            “ But how else are we supposed to tell them apart ” Grace protested, as she always had. It made perfect sense to her. If they wanted to notice the different reactions the creatures had, didn’t it... more

              Leo ignored the protests. It was simpler that way. Otherwise he'd have to try and fathom how she could name a thing, call it George or Fred or the like, and then be perfectly happy to turn it inside... more

                She almost protested that they were leaving Project F without any proper supervision and who knows what might happen while they were gone, but he had a gleam in her eye that said they were better off ... more

                  All he could manage was to nod and even that took a lot of concentration for some reason. He wanted to tell her that she looked wonderful, that her outfit was perfect and she was perfect in it. The... more

                    The whole time they were watching, he had that slight tension that said his mind was not focused on the matter at hand. She tried everything, her hand brushing along his knee, her other hand... more

                      Whilst Grace was gone to get food, Leo locked himself in the bathroom. Once he'd filled the sink with ice cold water he plunged his head into it. The sharp stabbing sensation in his eyeballs brought... more

                        Her heart had begun a long drop when he said no. She had though they were doing well, how had she messed up now? But he smiled and understood the joke. She made a thoughtful face. “Well…it’s only the ... more

                          He wanted to...and she wanted to and it took every ounce of his well practised self control to pull away from her. Especially when his hands were already half way there, never mind the rest of him,... more

                            She made a small cooing noise and kissed the tip of his nose."Good. Because I'm never telling anyone ever. Not even Maurie." She slipped away just enough to give him some breathing room and cast a... more
