So let's clear this up
Fri Apr 7, 2017 15:33

Danny had recently learned that Camilla was a very expressive person. He’d been only vaguely familiar with her prior to his fifth year, knowing her mostly as Elijah’s friend. Yet even while he’d spent more time with her over the past months, he still had considered her to be a quiet, reserved sort of person. He was realising now that this was just the hardened outer shell of a passionate individual who was quick to laugh, and equally quick to anger. Her current infatuation with the fragrance of Spring was therefore unsurprising to him; in fact he appreciated her individuality in that regard. Yet he doubted he would ever be as close to Camilla as he was with his existing friendship group; she was too intense to mesh well with his comparatively laid back approach to life. Of course she also kissed with that same expressive passion, and that was currently a very strong factor in his present high regard for her.

“I could eat,” Danny answered non-committally, considering he was a teenaged boy and eating took up a large part of every day. He linked his arm into Camilla’s as they began a languid stroll towards the cinema. He noticed that she was wearing flats again; he didn’t know if she didn’t like being taller than him or if she was doing it to sooth any non-existent concerns he might have on being shorter. “How about we get a drink then maybe some snacks for the movie?” he suggested. As Camilla didn’t have any particular preference, the fifth year guided them to a cafe they were passing anyway. Danny held open the door (which, to Muggles, bore a sign that indicated the establishment was closed to customers) for Camilla, and followed her into the cafe. Once seated, they wrote their order (Dardanius selected citrus iced tea and granola bar to keep his stomach content for the next hour) using the pale blue order slip provided on their table, which then folded itself into an origami bird and flew through a hatch and out of sight.

“Hey, do you mind if I ask,” Danny studied Camilla with interest, to gauge her reaction; he didn’t think she’d mind talking about quite personal matters, and she had so far been surprisingly forthright with subjects that some more timid people might have considered delicate, “why you’re not dating anyone?” She had been clear that she didn’t want to date Danny (which had been a relief, because he wasn’t sure how to tell a person he didn’t want to do that, and Camilla had saved him the trouble), but, as far as he could work out, she didn’t want to date anyone. He had similar reservations, but he didn’t think his reasons were aligned with hers; he was curious to find out.

(OOC: godmodding of Camilla approved by her author)
