The nice thing about an underground school was that the weather system was entirely its own. So while winter still had its tendrils on Pearl Street, the Quidditch Pitch provided an outdoor-ish area that didn’t necessarily require pants to stroll through it. That was always a positive to Francine. As long as she wasn’t heading there for practice, she was fine in her skirts.

She was pleased upon arrival to find the weather just perfect for her outfit. If anything, she was a little warm, which was fine because she was planning on meeting Lucien in one of the more private sections, with intention of some loss of layers. She was less pleased to find the pair already on the Pitch: Frankie and Holland. Now, with her keen observations, she hadn’t noticed anything before that would indicate there was anything between them - the Cetus was pretty sure her brother had subconsciously invented the whole thing because he was afraid of his feelings for his best friend and needed a reason not to act on them - but she was immediately suspicious of any two people hanging out alone, especially if one of them happened to be the boy of Nick’s admiration.

So she decided her boyfriend would just have to wait while she investigated. Francine approached as they tossed a Quaffle between them, catching Frankie making some comment about Holland’s hair. (Yes, Nick, Frankie is sooooo straight.) When she was up to them, she smiled, “Hey, can I play? Or is this Lyras only?” Without waiting for an answer, she took off her backpack - a plush tiger with straps, basically - and held up her hands to catch the throw she hoped would come.

“Weird how it’s just you two and not the whole team,” she commented innocently after a moment. “I mean, I didn’t know you were that close or anything. Unless….” Francine paused, pretending to let the thought hit her, but of course, she wasn’t a particularly good actress. “Are you two a couple?!”

    When Holland said that they had wanted to work on reflexes and stuff Frankie grinned at them. “Good!” Frankie replied happily as he began to stretch. He didn’t want to pull anything there were a few... more

      • But I like what I have on now - Holland, Tue Feb 21 22:14
        “ Nothing too earth shattering, ” Frankie said, doing a perfect impression of someone who had had an earth-shattering break and wanted to hide it. If Holland was talking to Danny or Emmett or Marissa ... more

          Frankie groaned when he noticed Francine coming near Holland and him. Francine was the last person Frankie wanted to see now. It wasn’t that the seventh year hated his fellow seventh year he just... more
          • ....Awk-ward~ - Francine, Thu Feb 23 13:54
            Holland passed her the Quaffle. I’m in. Their response was about what she’d been expecting: playful, but indicative of a negative. Nothing that read whether or not Holland actually wanted to be more... more
            • You can say that again - Holland, Thu Feb 23 19:31
              Holland was mostly joking in their answer to Francine, which made it all the more baffling when Frankie got absurdly defensive about it. RMI’s rumor mill was quick, myopic, and inaccurate, much like... more

                Frankie narrowed his eyes at Francine while she fumbled through her answer of why she cared. The seventh year was not in the mood for this. He caught the Quaffle easily, glad to have it back under... more
