The quiet hum of the radio filled the room, a comfortable silence surrounding you and Matt. Nestling myself further into Matt, I sigh contently, inhaling his cologne. “You smell nice.” You mutter softly. His chest vibrates, telling you that he is laughing.
“I try.” He says jokingly, pressing a kiss to your forehead.
“Matt?” You say, looking up at him.
“Yes Y/N?” He replies.
“I’M BORED!” You cry out, wriggling out of his grip and rolling across the bed, landing on the floor with a thump. Matt giggles at you. “You’re a weirdo."
You pout. “Stop laughing and help me up.” He hoists you up onto the bed and pulls you into him.
"Can we do something?” You say, feeling restless.
“Like what? It’s 1 in the morning.” He says, giggling.
“We can get ice cream, or go to the park, or we could walk to the ice cream shop and then go to the park!” You squeal like a little kid.
“Can we Matt, can we please?” You pout, glancing up at him.
“You’re truly insane,” He mumbles. “Grab one of my sweaters and meet me downstairs."
Your eyes light up and you quickly jump up and press a kiss to Matt’s lips, leaving him blushing as you run off to his closet and rummage through his sweaters. Your hands feel for the material of one of Matt’s hoodie until you find your favourite hoodie of his. Slipping the large hoodie over your shoulders, you skip down the stairs, almost crashing into Matt on your way down.
"Whoa, whoa. Easy there tiger.” He chuckles, pulling you into his chest.
“Ready to go?” He asks and you nod.
He wraps his large hand around your small one and you begin your walk, your arms swinging together. Arriving at the ice cream shop, you immediately dash to the counter, examining the flavours on display. “Matt,” You groan. “I don’t know what to get.” You say, pouting slightly.
“Get whatever catches your eye."
"That’s the problem Matt, everything is catching my eye!”
Matt walks over to you, wrapping his arms around your waist and resting his head on your shoulder. “If you want everything, get everything.” He says chuckling.
“You’re no help."
"Hmm, you wanna share a sundae then?” He suggests and you smile.
"Whatever you want baby.”
“I love you Matt.” Pressing a soft kiss to his plump lips.
“I love you too Y/N, now go order.” He says, gently pushing you towards the counter.
“Can I get a large hot fudge sundae please?” You ask the old lady behind the counter.
“Of course darling. You’ve got quite a nice lad.” She says, gesturing to Matt.
“I couldn’t ask for anyone else.” You mutter softly.
“Don’t let him go dear, he’s a keeper."
"I won’t.” The lady hands you your sundae and as your about to pay, Matt pushes your hand away and hands the lady a 10 dollar bill.
“I could’ve paid."
"I know, but I wanted to pay for you.”
You sit down on the bench outside the shop, enjoying the sundae in a comfortable silence. “You have something on your face.” Matt says and your hand flies to your face.
“Where?” You ask. Matt edges closer to you. “Um, right there!” He says, flicking some of his ice cream on your nose.
He giggles at you. “Run Espinosa. Run.”
He jumps off the bench and races off to the park with you quick on his heels. “You’re not going to catch me!” He screams into the wind as he races around the park.
You speed up a bit and gently jump on Matt, tackling him to the ground. “I caught you.” You whisper, your body pressed onto Matt’s as you lay in the cool grass.
“That you did.” he says chuckling, effortlessly flipping you over so he is on top of you.
“Can I kiss you?” you nod.
He presses his lips to yours, in a sweet yet passionate embrace. He pulls away from your lips, slightly breathless. “Promise me you’ll never leave?"
"I’ll never leave; I love you too much to leave.” You reply, pressing your lips to his once more.
A Slytherin is a good friend to have. The Snakes are shrewd, and calculated, and always seem to be two steps ahead of the rest of us - we’ve noticed, subterranean friends, that you’re never found at the scene of the crime. Your common room should not be welcoming, underground as it is, with those porthole windows that look into the depths of the Black Lake, but there’s a regality to it that puts an inch onto the height of everyone who walks through your doors. Here’s your mix of cool-as-ice beats to inspire you as you plot world domination. Are the rumours of an underground Stock Market really true?

SHOW PREVIEW: The Lilies and Sparrows, Mazes and Monsters, and Foley
You guys are in for a real treat. This Friday, the Radio Room is bringing a powerhouse trio of amazing bands. First up is The Lilies and Sparrows (from here in the Upstate), Mazes and Monsters (from Augusta, GA), and Foley (from Newport Beach, CA). All of the bands are similar in the fact that they all name a few of the same bands as influences. This makes for a very cohesive event.
I can’t stop thinking of Harry and Louis going out on a date, both dressed up. For some reason they left the radio on. They come back home, take their shoes off at the door and when they get to the living room the radio’s playing Thinking out loud. Louis asks Harry to dance with him, Harry thinks he’s teasing, but he’s serious.
So they slow dance. Barefoot. In their living room.
Just a reminder that Kim Jongdae is a kind-hearted and pure soul who gives hotpacks to ghosts, introduced himself and chatted with a random repairman, and effortlessly defends people who’ve been made fun of. He needs to be showered with the love he deserves
Ravenclaw, we get it: you like it when we play ‘study music’. But we don’t think you’re always studying up there. Ravenclaw common room is where to go when you need to relaxed, to be curious, to ask questions. It’s where you go when you’re tired of homework and just want to study a ceiling painted with an accurate map of the stars, or gaze over the grounds, or even just to ask a passing student for their answer to the meaning of life. Ravenclaw, you are full of quirky charms, magical-experiments-gone-wrong, and esoteric lore, and we love you for your eccentricities. Please take this mix of ‘study music’ with our understanding that it will be just background noise to the rich fabric of your everyday life.
