It was Valentine’s Day, and the whole school was filled with students giving each other lovely chocolates and gifts, enchanted ‘cupids’ flying around and bugging innocent victims with arrows to the backside. Everyone generally had a smile on their face, or at least a care-free attitude.
Everyone that was, except for a certain red-haired archer ex-boyfriend.
Bette had spent the beginning of her morning passing out some of the various baked treats she’d made for her friends in between classes and giving them little cards, and she’d gotten nearly everyone. However, she couldn’t find Roy anywhere, and she had the feeling he was spending the day somewhere outside, possibly drinking and most likely being a grump.
So, during her lunch break, she began looking for the Slytherin boy. First, she checked the Grand Hall. No Harper to be seen. The outer courtyard? Nope. She even worked up the courage to ask William Hayes if he was in their common room, to which she received a creepy glare before discovering that he was not there when he had left.
That left very few places for him to go angst at. The blonde furrowed her brow and tried to think which one was most likely, considering he probably wanted somewhere to be alone to wallow in his self-pity. This wasn’t healthy, and Bette, worrying per usual, was determined to find a way to get him out of this funk and back to a more functioning attitude.
'Perhaps, he’s gone down to the forest by the lake. It’s still pretty cold, so not a lot of students are probably down there.’ Bette thought to herself.
It was worth a shot.
