Yeah, he's not that scary

The charm quickly took effect and made Juniper feel better-physically anyway. Or at least, in the sense that she wasn't hot anymore. That was probably the one drawback to Herbology, it was awfully hot in the greenhouses.

However, what Finn said next made Juniper freeze and sweat at the same time. Was something wrong? Everything was wrong, everything! He didn't want her, he wanted Gwen Fintoc. The sixth year wasn't good enough for him. Finn clearly only liked her as a friend because if he felt the way about her that she felt about him, he'd have never asked someone else to the ball.

But she couldn't say that. First of all, it would make her look jealous and that wasn't a good emotion to show, even though it was true. She was jealous of Gwen. At the moment, the other girl was everything Juniper wasn't and that her mother-and apparently Finn-wanted her to be. That the entire world wanted her to be.

And Gwen had what the sixth year girl wanted most....Finn's heart. That was the other reason Juniper couldn't say what was wrong and how hurt she was. She didn't want to confess she had feelings for him. Especially now when he was just probably going to say that he was sorry and that he didn't feel that way and that he was in love with Gwen. He had to be after all. There was no other reason that he'd ask the younger girl to the ball rather than Juniper. None.

So she said what she had to say to not make things worse. Because if Finn said that to her, Juniper would likely start crying right here in class and that would be humiliating. And it would probably get around the entire school and everything would be even worse for her. "I-I'm fine. Just a little hot but that cooling charm is helping quite a bit so thank you." She replied, her voice betraying her words.

OOC-Sorry it took so long

        Juniper seemed to brush off Finnís question, which wasÖto be expected, really. He doubted that the heat was really to blame for her loss of weight and air of sadness. Sure, heat could be unpleasant,... more
        • Really? - Juniper, Wed Dec 19 15:15
          Juniper wondered if Finn really believed her when she said she was okay. She hoped so. Even though she had been hurt deeply by him asking Gwen to the ball and she really wasn't okay, she didn't want... more
