I would have hoped so!
Tue Sep 19, 2017 16:38

Music kept coming out of the piano under the movement of her fingers that the blonde felt like she had been transported to the tranquility of an enclosed cove filled with relaxing noises of the coming and goings of the waves. Camilla could swear she could feel the sun kissing her skin. She smiled as the tranquility of her fantasy washed over her erasing any care she might have had in that moment. Music was amazing.

The blonde had been so concentrated on the music that had been surrounding her that she completely missed anyone entering the theater, let alone when said someone leaned himself on the piano becoming a complete distraction for Camilla. For a few more minutes the blonde continued playing like there was no one, because she had not realized she suddenly had company.

One key, next key, and her fingers missed the next note.

Camilla looked up from her fingers and rested on Danny’s grinning face. She mirrored his grin, “Hi there,” she said with a small laugh before stretching her fingers. They felt a little stiff after months of not being used to play the piano. The Cetus shifted her position to face Danny, “How was your midterm?” she asked curiously, sincerely interested in what he had done. Camilla had sent him a Christmas Card expressing her best wishes to her friend, but she had been so busy during the holiday season that she didn't know if he had written back or not. Mrs. Randolph had only left her be for two days while she spent christmas with her actual family and had her come back for New Years. The blonde barely had time to breathe.

The blonde had to admit that it had been a very successful and fun first holiday party season. She had acquired a boyfriend, new connections, and a lot of new dresses, etc. It would be a bit of a stretch to say she had new friends, because the same age acquaintances had merely tolerated her. She knew most of the people she had met had smiled at her out of duty, but she didn't care. It had been extremely fun, for the most part. Though she had missed the relaxing atmosphere of a family holiday.

      • You're also a pianist - Dardanius, Tue Sep 19 17:24
        “Hey,” Danny replied, his grin broadening. Camilla didn’t seem to mind the distraction, and the way she flexed her fingers indicated she might have been about due for a break, anyway. She further... more
        • Sort of? It's been a while - Camilla , Tue Sep 19 17:58
          “Apparently everything changes once you have Alec Edwards´seal of approval,” Camilla answered Danny’s question with a serious tone, but her lips were pursued in a small smile. The blonde´s experience ... more
          • Sometimes a break is good for us - Danny, Wed Sep 20 15:00
            Danny nodded along while Camilla briefly explained her altered circumstances. He'd never had much to do with the Edwards families, but was peripherally aware of them, mostly by dint of attending... more
            • Hope it's not a long break! - Camilla, Wed Sep 20 15:39
              The blonde scooted over while she listened to Danny talking about inevitabilities, armies, strategies and sleep. Camilla chuckled and shifted her position to face her friend. Danny seemed changed?... more
              • Be careful what you wish for - Danny, Wed Sep 20 16:32
                Whatever they were talking about, Camilla seemed to accept his premise that the future needed tone confronted in any hurry. He liked her metaphor of walking into her future; it was apt. He was trying ... more
                • I'm certain that's a very good wish - Camilla, Thu Sep 21 11:07
                  “You are absolutely right,” Camilla grinned back at Danny. Their personalities were too opposite and even when she enjoyed and liked Danny they didn't compliment one another that well. Yes, they... more
                  • Traditionally you get Three - Danny, Sun Sep 24 15:41
                    Dardanius grinned, enjoying Camilla's flattery. He had never considered himself to be unattractive, and the awkwardness of adolescence was receding from his features with satisfying results, which,... more
                    • Ooh! I still have two more! - Camilla, Mon Sep 25 01:58
                      Mason was great, at least from what she remembered about him when they were younger, and from they had had lived during the christmas break. It had been amazing and very intense if she was honest,... more
                      • How will you use them? - Danny, Mon Sep 25 07:01
                        Danny didn’t disagree; he liked Rachel and thought they probably would have a good time, and he was sort of excited about it. That didn’t stop it feeling all kinds of weird, though. The chances of... more
                        • I have to think about this very carefully - Camilla, Thu Sep 28 18:09
                          Danny was one of the most respectful and nice wizards she had ever met. Camilla was sure that life through Danny’s eyes would be a very interesting experience in every aspect. She was sure Danny was... more
                          • Your time may be up - Danny, Fri Sep 29 09:24
                            Danny nodded along as Camilla concluded he had years left to decide what to do with his life. He genuinely hoped that was true, because he was counting on it. Even without all the family stuff to... more
