Better than empty headed

Another advantage of dousing Marissa, besides revenge, was that she was now wet in a sports bra. “What?” Danny asked, her words not matching his thoughts. Then he realised she was talking about his lip and he grinned. “It’ll heal,” he reassured her. He wanted to add that it would take more than a trip jinx to slow him down, but then she might take that as encouragement to try something more substantial. Instead he said, “Pretty sure your Quidditch team has had me in worse shape that this.” He hadn't come off too badly in school games so far, but he was a Chaser; it was inevitable he would be hit by a Bludger from time to time.

Turning back to the flames, he cast the water charm again, assuming that Marissa would add her own charm, too. After a few short moments Danny was able to pass through unscathed and continue on with the course. It seemed like he was going to be stuck with Marissa now, unless one of them out-ran the other. Or she made a more successful attempt at disabling him.

There was a misty fog up ahead. Danny’s half-successful bubble head charm was still in place, but he cast impervious on his face, too, which repelled the mist. It helped him to breathe and see right in front of him, but the thick fog was still obscuring the rest of the trail. He didn't think running through it was necessarily the best course of action. “Any ideas?” He asked Marissa. She had definitely benefited from his wand work on the mud pit, so he figured it was fair that she could come up with a plan this time.

  • I guess I can just be empty handed - Marissa, Sun Jan 15 16:39
    Marissa gave a celebratory whoop! as she made it past Danny. In the back of her mind, she thought of going back to check on him because that fall looked way nastier than she had intended, but she’d... more

      • My head is full of knowledge, okay? - Marissa, Mon Jan 16 15:38
        If they weren’t next to a big thing of fire, Marissa would probably be shivering. How did Danny produce so much water with that tiny wand? The Aquila was almost tempted to stay by the fire a little... more
        • Okay. Just not useful knowledge. - Danny, Mon Jan 16 17:02
          “I’ll fix your lip for you when we don’t need the bubble head charm anymore,” Marissa offered. “Thanks, but I’ll pass,” he said, warily. He was not certain she had eptitude in healing spells. Spells... more
          • Marissa noticed the wariness in his voice, which she found to be a little unfair. She said she was sorry, she meant it, and she thought it had come out very genuine. Danny clearly didn’t trust her... more
            • Usefulness is to be commended - Danny, Wed Jan 18 15:51
              How was she still cold? The water from his charm but have been icy . If he’d have known that, Danny wasn’t sure he would have gone through with it. Maybe. Dardanius himself was actually pretty warm,... more
              • I do what I can - Marissa, Wed Jan 18 17:27
                Marissa could tell that her shivering was making Danny feel uncomfortable or something. She was a good actress. She wasn’t the best – she’d never do fancy stuff like her mom did, and she didn’t want... more
                • You sure do - Danny, Fri Jan 20 05:07
                  Once Marissa was in his shoulders, Danny shakily stood, using the sheer face of the wall for support, raising his companion sufficiently that she could haul herself onto the top of the wall. That was ... more
