Food? Aw, heck yeah!

Deagret held back her wince--she admittedly had never seen Gigi before, not even in class, and honestly, it made her feel more than a little bit guilty.

To be fair though, Deagret was very much an attentive student, even when she was doodling on her notes or highlighting things unnecessarily just because she wanted to add a bit of colors to her study guides (especially when the other non-muggleborn students looked at her funny and asked her "What in the name of Merlin are those things?". She always got a kick out of their confusion). Sometimes, she'd even do that thing she and her friends from elementary school would do with their pens and highlighters and pretend to paint little designs on her nails, before wiping them away with the pads of her fingers. But yes, even when she was "messing around" she was still listening to whatever the professor was saying, though sometimes she did daydream a little bit, but it rarely got out of hand.

But no, she'd never seen Gigi in class before, had never even just barely glimpsed the older girl, and it made her embarrassed that the dark-haired second year already knew who she was And then Gigi's question pulled her from her thoughts.

"Nah, I don't need gloves," she said with a quick smiled before reaching down and snatching up the veggies, her nails already gathering dirt underneath them. And then Gigi caught her attention and the words "bad color match" rang across her mind. Deagret was sure the second-year hadn't meant it meanly--in fact, it seemed more like she was just trying to alert her to the mess on her face.

Besides, Dea had been raised to have thick skin.

Even when it was covered in paint that clashed with her red hair.

And she certainly wasn't going to let a few little words upset her or possibly ruin a budding friendship.

So, Deagret shot Gigi a smile and shrugged nonchalantly. "I was painting for the talent show gallery before I remembered this meeting. So technically, I just came back from war. Unfortunately, it's still undetermined whether the painting won or I did." She said with a laugh, rubbing at the oil stains on her face before realizing that that was most certainly a mistake, because it was only smearing the blues and yellows and pinks and blacks further into her skin.

        Point to Gigi for deducing Deagret was not a glove wearing gal when it came to gardening. In fact she just sort of delved into the veggie patch, getting herself unnecessarily grubby. Gigi was no... more
