Sort of? It's been a while

“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 in the Pureblood world had been filled with rejection and humiliation. It had become so unbearable that they had ended moving to the united states in order to start all over. It had worked for the most part, thank Merlin, but the shadow of her biological father had followed her. It hadn't been as big as in England, but still there. Camilla had learned to deal with it by mostly sticking to herself for most of her teenage years, but now it was different.

“After what happened with Rose and Ruben I asked him for help, and he took a sort of liking of me,” the blonde explained without going into much more detail. She didn't think Danny needed to know the details of the agreement she had gotten into with her grandfather. However, he didn't seem as bad as everyone portrayed him. He was serious and direct, but he seemed to have an interest in her.

“I did have a lot of fun, especially since Mrs. Randolph took me under her wing and showed me the ropes,” she said with a smile. Camilla played some random keys, waited until the music stopped echoing before continuing. “Besides, it was kind of fun having people that used to scorn me give me a place besides them because they had to,” she confessed with a chuckle. It had been an empowering experience to have people bow their head to you out of respect because of her family was even when she was still a Baird. Like Mrs Randolph had said, she still had the connection and the wealth to play around with me if she so desired. Her mother was ecstatic.

“But mostly I enjoyed your side of the Pureblood world and now I see your point of view,” the Cetus said with a smile. “Though mostly, I think I realize that I can't really run away from something that's going to follow me wherever I go. It's better I just confront it. No?” She asked Danny. She was curious to hear what he had to say.

The blonde aimlessly began stroking some keys remembering song she used to play and brought her some comfort while she endured hours after hours of an activity she didnt really wanted to do.
