Quidditch Practice || Theo&Gwen
It left him confused. Completely and utterly confused but he couldn’t just leave her like that, could he? She was just talking nonsense… she was off, that was all. Quidditch would make it better, he knew it. Quidditch always made her think clearer; better than when she was stressed, or anxious, or worried or other bad feelings. Perhaps then she would explain; perhaps then it would make some more sense.
He got up off the couch quickly and went up to his dorm room, changing into suitable attire for the night as well as grabbing his new cane. With William, he had promised to use it more, and given that it was night, Theo always did use it if he ever decided to take a stroll, just in case he couldn’t see what was there, hidden in the darkness of sorts. With a nod of his head then to clarify himself, he was off: down the stairs, out of the portrait hole, into the corridors, down the Grand Staircase and through the doors leading to the grounds. It was a nice night for flying, that’s what she would always say anyway, so he knew that she’d be in at least a bit of a better mood.
With the cane extended, Theo began to walk along the pathway alone, nobody following nor watching, as he made his way up to the Quidditch Pitch for some unintentional yet highly intentional practice.
“I’m not, I swear… not this time.” He said the words ever so softly as her mouth ghosted across his own, and soon after he was being led by her to the library, which was surprisingly quiet. As she walked and he gazed around, he couldn’t help but to think that, somehow, it wasn’t enough, and so he leaned forward slightly and whispered two simple words.
His whisper danced down her spine and even she shivered. A coy smile tugged at the corners of her lips as she looked around the area. It was rather empty, but most people had lessons at that hour of the day.
“If you say so…”
The coy, shy smile turned into a grin as she pulled him down the way a bit. At the gate of the Restricted Section, she looked towards the desk of the librarian. The woman was busied with her work and so, she placed a small silencing charm on the door and opened it. “After you.”
A Kind Today || Theo&Persephone
“You just, you’re such a good soul and I think you should try to teach more people your ways. I am fairly sure that with just your smile, you could make this world a brighter, happier and an easier place.” Holding onto his hand, she began to pull him out of the castle, down the path they both knew well and towards the meadow they loved. The sun was lodged behind clouds, but managed to seep through the cracks in the sky. It was almost warm and slightly cool, the perfect weather in her opinion. “I won’t push you or dunk you in this time, I swear. If I do anything of the sort, I’ll give you fair warning okay?” Laughing, she squeezed his hand and pulled him between the trees.
