Caleb Taylor
I’m here for Claudia

RMI was interesting. Caleb couldn’t really place his finger on specific things that he found so interesting – and weird, but good weird -, but the new fifth-year was thoroughly enjoying his time at the school. The blonde had a little bit of catching up in the academic area since his school back in Chicago had a different curriculum, Caleb was sure he had not worked his hard academically ever before, but it was okay because good grades equaled to prospective scholarships. The Lyra knew what he wanted to do in life, and it involved Quidditch. However, his father was adamant that he receive a good college education along with playing the sport. They had compromised in competitive college Quidditch before attempting the pros. Caleb was okay with that. Sort of.

But anyways, the blonde young wizard was always hungry, probably since he trained quite a bit and his body required the sustenance. The grey-eyed boy didn’t mind it, but had started a habit of having yummy snacks in his backpack for such occasions. Now, since it was almost dinner time the blonde had arrived earlier than usual and had devoured in a matter of seconds a hamburger, a side mac and cheese and French fries. Caleb had been famished. It was never a great idea to train on an empty stomach! However, no matter how hungry he had been, he had taken a quick shower before heading towards the dinner. No one liked a smelly teenage wizard.

Caleb had been peacefully finishing his dessert – a sundae! – when he saw his Quidditch captain enter the diner and sit down with a younger witch. A specific younger witch Caleb had seen a couple of times and had caught his eye. He had not done anything to meet her, but maybe Danny would be cool enough to introduce them? He had heard they were siblings? Caleb wasn’t sure, but he was going to ask Danny next Quidditch practice. He made a mental note and grabbed a couple of sugar cookies that were laying sadly on the table.

After another glance to the table were Danny and Claudia were sitting, Caleb went back to the book he had open on the table – a Quidditch book focused on Chaser strategies, a light reading, really. He turned a few pages before his grey-eyes went back to Claudia, but this time his attention remained there. The atmosphere seemed a bit hostile, and Calen could what seemed tears? He wasn’t sure since he wasn’t close enough, but he got up from his seat as Claudia moved away from her brother, and that when the Lyra saw she was, indeed, crying.

He knew it was kind of creepy and weird since they didn’t know one another, but he wanted to make sure she was okay. “Hey,” he caught up with her. “Are you okay?” he asked her hoping she would stop.

  • Still not posting with myself - replies to either welcome - Dardanius (and also Claudia) Dubois, Mon Feb 12 16:13
    Having spent an incredible afternoon with Holland, Danny now had to complete the far less enticing task of telling Claudia that he was - once again - in an unsanctioned relationship. He was hoping... more
    • Heeeey Danny boy! - Ruben Lundqvist, Mon Feb 12 23:49
      At this exact moment, Ruben couldn’t entirely tell where his hair ended and his salad began. This was an unusual experience and also one that he was absolutely fine with. The Drama Club overall had... more
      • Hello Ruben - Dardanius, Thu Feb 15 16:30
        Danny sat back down in his seat, having very little idea what just happened. He didn’t expect Claudia to be so opposed to him dating before he’d even mentioned a name, and even then he hadn’t... more

      • I'm glad someone is - Claudia Dubois, Thu Feb 15 15:51
        She was finding it so difficult not to be overwhelmed. Her high-waisted pencil skirt restricted the movement of her legs, forcing her to take smaller steps than she would have liked as her matching... more

          Caleb didn't receive a response right away but instead Claudia continued to walk presumably out of the sight of everyone in the Finer Diner. He didn't blame her, to be honest. She was crying in the... more
          • I'm not sure you can - Claudia, Sat Feb 17 15:06
            Claudia couldn’t think about Danny right now - her mind seemed to have recognised that she would not be able to process this information without a great deal of emotional anguish and confusion, and... more

              Everything was going better than expected. Claudia had accepted his company! And it made the fifth-year feel a bit useful. He had no idea how to help the younger witch, but he seemed to be on the... more
