She stumbled backwards against the wall as he charged forward and her heel got caught in a crack between the paving stones. His arms pinning her in on either side prevented her from getting enough room to pull it free though and the angry, blood red feelings that came pouring out of him were distracting. Then one particular thought hit her and in an instant she suddenly understood the faces Dagon and Randy had pulled and remembered the latter's advice. She stopped struggling with her trapped shoe and looked up at him.

"Oh my god," she muttered. "You didn't mean broomstick. You meant...oh hell no!" Small hands balled into fists and began pounding against his chest, his arms and anything else she could reach, accompanied by loud shrieks. "Forget Dagon, I'm going to kill you! You stupid son of a...." An imaginative string of insults in language colourful enough to make any Thestral blush followed. Both the words and the punches kept coming until something else occurred to her.

"Wait, why are you angry?" she turned on him, his arms still pinning her against the small section of wall. "You don't get to be angry! This is all your fault! If you'd just...oh. OH!" It was turning out to be a night of revelations for Ri as the more she yelled at him and the fiercer he looked back at her the more she understood.

The village Parson and his wife were taking their evening amble down the quiet lanes near the centre of Hogsmeade. The school children didn't venture much into the town itself after dark, preferring venues such as the Pit and various others on the outskirts. The Parson himself had been part of the Board that had made sure it was kept that way. They turned a corner onto a road of old cobbles that led back to the vicarage, lined with slim maple trees and lit with gas light. It was here that seven little words, louder than anything they'd ever heard, echoed through the streets.

"You want me to ride your broomstick!"

His wife looked shocked and held a hand to her chest in vexation. The Parson shrugged and gave her a hopeful look which she returned with the same disgust that had become his old friend the past twenty years.

Ri's face was sheepish, well aware she'd said that sentence far too loud and convinced Blackwell was about to appear out of no where and give her detention. Still, she refused to look away from him until he said something.

"But...you don't like me," she finished.

    “Riddle?” Brad said. “What riddle I never…” Her words to Dagon came forward in his mind, along with a very clear image of what exactly that actually meant. His nostrils flared, and he could feel his... more

                  Up until the last moment she wasn't sure that Bradley wouldn't just growl at her, spit out an insult and stalk off as he usually did. That, or give her a black eye. He didn't though. His full weight... more
