Dardanius Dubois
With a Friend
Tue Apr 4, 2017 16:10

Having decided that potential awkwardness and hazardously undefined parameters were going to be more trouble than they were worth, Danny had invited Camilla for a coffee up on Pearl Street just a day or two after that fateful party. She had surprised him with her honesty and forthright attitude when she’d said she wasn’t looking for anything serious, but he didn’t have any argument against having an attractive friend who wanted to kiss him from time to time. Amendment: having two attractive female friends he kissed sometimes, apparently.

Regardless of whether he should or should not - morally, emotionally, and considering his familial responsibilities - Dardanius was meeting Camilla again for a movie, and he had also suggested a light meal at a thus far unspecified venue. He had been to the Muggle theater a couple of times with the other fifth years and Emmett (the first time he was pretty sure they were teasing him for never having seen a movie before), and knew his way around several of the more casual eateries. He assumed this would be appropriate for two friends who very definitely not dating. Yet even with their relationship being defined by them both as platonic, Danny was keen to keep their less platonic activities confined to more secluded locations. If the RMI rumour mill was like dropping a match onto dry grass, the wizarding society rumor mill was like igniting a fuse. He very much doubted that anyone would be spying on him specifically, but his youth had taught him that bored witches and house elves gossiped like their lives depended on it. He really didn’t relish the thought of having to explain things to his mother. It seemed that at RMI it was perfectly acceptable for a person to have a variety of experiences with a variety of people, but it was not like this at home, despite what his mother’s friend Lia might have suggested about her school days.

Striding out from the bookshop, Danny was dressed in a gradient t-shirt that faded from white at the top to purple at the bottom, with black straight-leg jeans and orange sneakers. The sunlight was sort of patchy; he debated for a half second about whether to go back for his shades but ultimately continued on his way and smiled to himself as Camilla waved to him. He grinned a little at her enthusiasm about Spring. He did enjoy the warmer weather, but he couldn’t admit to noticing it smelling any different. “I smell coffee and burgers,” he chuckled. “Does that count?”
