Title: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Jessie Pendragon on 04/08/2012 at 12:39
July 17

Jessie woke up excited,today was her sixteenth birthday and she couldn't wait to get things set up for her party. She put on her black sundress with the pink and green flowers and her sandals before heading to the lake to set up. The day was slightly cloudy but it didn't really seem like it would rain and it was warm enough outside.

She had set up some tables and filled them with refreshments and decorations. Each table held an arrangement of her favorite flowers with chairs in a group setting. There were pink,green,and white balloons floating in the air all around the party setting. jessie had made sure everything would be perfect,her sister Joelle was even going to be allowed to attend before having to go back home. Jessie had sent out the invitations and was ready for the best day of her life...so far.

She left her blonde,wavy tresses hang freely about her shoulders and her brillant green eyes glowed with happiness. It was a day where Jessie was going to put everything else out of her mind and just have fun. She had been stressing for far too long and today was about letting go and being...well, Jessie.

The music was playing from the enchanted radio she had borrowed from the school and Jessie smiled as she surveyed the job she had done setting up for the party,now all she had to do was wait for her friends to arrive.

Asita grinned, running down to the Lake. I can't believe it's already Jessie's birthday! Asita thought, laughing softly. She wore a strapless knee length dress, a deep purple colour, and black sandals.
As Asita reached the lake, she grinned as she saw Jessie.
"Happy birthday, Jessie!" Asita laughed, passing a square box to her friend, inside a emerald green necklace, with matching earrings. "Who else is coming?" Asita asked, grinning with anticipation.

Thalia checked her reflection in the mirror. She looked okay but it wasn't as if she cared much about her appearance. Of course, she was conscious of how she looked but...well, she couldn't have cared less that night. This was Jessie's birthday party and she was going there to celebrate her friend's sweet sixteenth. Birthdays were supposed to be fun.

She had on a green, floral-patterned sundress, partnered with tan-coloured platform shoes. It seemed like dresses were taking over her wardrobe, whether she liked it or not. Her shorts and jeans didn't diminish in number but it was apparent that frocks were almost dominating the space in her trunk. She wasn't supposed to like dresses any more than she liked eating her veggies.

Shaking her hair loose from its braid, Thalia grabbed Jessie's present from her bed. Hastily, the blonde headed towards the lake, where the party was held. Almost late, the teen half-jogged, half-ran to the venue. She arrived, huffing and puffing.

"Whew! Happy Birthday, Jessie!" the girl exclaimed, panting slightly. Having caught her breath, Thalia paused to give the birthday girl her gift.

"Here, erm, it's nothing much but...I hope you like it!"

Inside the box would be a silver bracelet, with sapphire gems embedded on the band. She didn't exactly know what Jessie would like, but she decided to go for jewelry. Girls loved jewelry, didn't they? Takeshi had given her one, and she never took it off.

"Nice party," commented Thalia before noticing Asita, a younger housemate. She'd seen the girl around before, but they've never really talked.

"Oh, hey, Asita! How are you?"

Asita looked up, surprised the other girl was talking to her. She had seen her, what was her name?, but they'd never had the time to talk.
"Hi," Asita smiled warmly. "You're Erathalia, right? Nice to finally talk to you." Asita said, grinning. "I'm fine, thanks. How about you?"

Jessie smiled and greeted her guests as they started arriving. First Asita arrived and Jessie ran up to hug her friend who had actually turned out to be her cousin in a round about family connection. She took the gift Asita handed her and placed it in the middle of the center table. Next was Thalia and she accepted another box adding it to the table as well.

"Thanks so much for coming if you would like there are various pastries,snack and drinks on the long table over there." Jessie offered pointing to the table that held assorted cookies,cakes,pastries and other snacks. There were glasses of pumpkin juice,punch and bottles of butterbeer out for anyone that wished to have some. The cupcakes all had either pink or green frosting with the numbers 16 in sugary candies on top. Of course there was also plenty of chocolates and other candy from Honeydukes.

"How's everyone's summer so far?" Jessie wondered.

Claire had walked down slowly to the lake, after a few minutes of preparing. Claire smiled as she saw Jessie, Thalia, and another girl she did not really recognized. This party will be fun! She decided as if if she says so, it will turn out well. Her gift was in a big box covered in wrapping paper, inside was a soft life size dog plushie (http://www.dogcollectibles.com/store_images/product/MDSheridanOESD.jpg) that Jessie could easily hug. I hope she likes it. Claire thought hugging the big box with both her arms, her chin holding the box as well so that it won't fall.

"Hey Jessie! Happy Sweet 16! Today will be great fun! Here you go!" Claire said and offered the big box to Jessie, undoubtedly her gift was going the more childish route, but even as one becomes older, having a child quality is never bad. Claire waved at Thalia and the girl she didn't recognized, "Hey guys!" Claire said to both of them, even thought she technically didn't know one of the two.

She wore a plain white dress that ended around her kneecaps it was pretty simple, but comfortable and nice looking enough. Her hair was short now, she had only cut it a few days ago.

(Refer to avatar for appearance, exclude the instrument shown! So if the picture were to show her legs, it will be a white dress.)

Stella wore turquoise, a summery shade of one of her favorite colors, blue. Besides blue, Stella supposed she liked yellow best. The turquoise fabric formed the  dress  (http://funky44.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Gorgeous-Turquoise-Dress-by-Lotus-Vintage-NY.jpg) that Stella was now wearing to her best friend's sweet sixteen. Stella's had been back in Winter, and she hadn't invited quite the amount of guests that Jessie did. Among the partiers, Stella found Jessie and handed her a present ((Guess I'm just too lazy to decide what the present is  ;) )).

Over the course of her life, Stella had learned that it was always best to claim a seat as soon as possible, so that she wouldn't have to play the can-I-sit-here? game. She grabbed a lemonade and put it in front of the chair that she decided to make hers for the duration of this party. Stella admired the selection of flowers that had been placed on the tables. Her mother always kept their garden beautifiul, with a wide selection of flowers and other plant, so Stella was quickly able to identify most of the flowers in front of her.

Call it bullying, or maybe there was just some psychological flaw he didn't know about or didn't want to address, but there had to be a reason – a good reason – why Colton was sticking fireworks into a cake. Two tiered and nearly a foot tall, the birthday cake was beautiful and pricy: each layer was smothered in canary yellow icing and bundles of decorative lavendar ribbons dressed the edges. And now he was uglying it up with poking trick blowers (multi-colored sticks of minor explosive available in blue, pink, yellow!) in it, his other hand busy trying to smooth over any suspicious bumps with a spatula.

Satisfied, Colt took a step back in the boys' cabin, licking his sticky fingers and admiring his handiwork. The cake sat quiet on his bedside table and he felt a rush of joy that only he knew its potential. It looked completely harmless on the outside but the moment it was cut, the summer partiers would see a blast brighter than the sun.

Personal vendetta against Jesse, it was not; he was just bored.

First making sure that he hadn't gotten icing on his white shirt or jeans, he bent his knees and carefully slid his hands under the cardboard tray holding the cake and lifted it up. Then he carried it outside with hesitant steps, making sure not to rest the side of the cake to his chest, or it might stick and expose a firework or two. It wasn't long until he reached the part of the lake where tables were already set up with various balloons, napkins, refreshments, and other things that society deemed party-like.

“Jessie,” he called, knowing full well in advance that he wouldn't be well received. A fraudulent frown formed on his face to express his mock-regret, and he looked down as if he was truly ashamed for his past discretions. “I'm sorry about how I acted at the Pitch.”

His hazel eyes peered around with mild interest and at nothing particular, carefully shifting his weight when he saw the cake begin to tip leftward. “Well, I heard it was your birthday today so I got you a cake.”

Asita grinned at Jessie. "Mine's been brilliant so far, with discovering two of my best friends are actually my cousins. But then again, you know that Jessie."
Asita smiled at the other girl who had just arrived. "Hi. I'm Asita Shan. Who are you?" she asked politely. Asita was really eager to met Jessie's other friends.
Asita frowned as a boy came to apologise to Jessie, holding a cake. Turning to Jessie, she pointed at the new boy. "What did he do to you?" She demanded, glaring at the new boy. Glancing at the cake, Asita bit her lip. "And do you really trust a peace offering from him?"

Lia rushed from the cabin, present in hand, as her red locks flew behind her with speed. She didn't want to miss out on anything.

She was wearing a midnight blue summer dress to her knees, which was loose and very comfortable, with white sandals. Her hair was down and curly as usual, her brown eyes gleaming with happiness, again, as usual.

She saw a crowd already at the edge of the lake, and saw a huge cake she immedietly knew would be delightful. Lia just had to try some now.

"Jessie! Happy Birthday!" Lia squeled and attacked Jessie in a tight hug. Letting go, she stuffed the white box wrapped in a blue ribbon into Jessie's hands. Her gift was  an antique broach that used to belong to some Lady in France. It was beautiful, with blue and white gems decorating it, and the rim golden and silver flowers. Lia would've kept it for herself, but she knew it was perfect for Jessie.

"Ah, i remember my 16th birthday..." Lia said mystically, even though she turned 16 only two months ago.

"Do you mind if i try some of this cake?" Lia gushed, skipping to the great thing. She tried some cream. Scrumptous. Then she gasped.

When Lia was five, she'd have lots of fun stuffing blowers into poeple's bags. She knew it would be a disaster if it went off in a cake.

"Jessie..." Lia warned. "I wouldn't light this cake if i were you. Those blowers will expload the whole thing. Cake everywhere! Who brought the cake?"

"I've never been better, Asita." said Thalia to her younger housemate, before adding. "We should hang out sometime." For the blonde, it seemed only natural watch over the younger ones and look out for them. She'd never had a chance to do so since she was an only child. Her childhood would definitely have been less lonelier.

"Same old, same old." Thalia joked, in answer to Jessie's inquiry. "It was fun! And now, with your birthday bash, I'm sure it's gonna be awesome."

The party seemed to be in full swing. Thalia swayed a little to the catchy music. Blue-green eyes gazed at all the scrumptious food that had been especially prepared for the occasion. She might as well enjoy herself.

"Hey, Stella. Claire. You guys are looking great!" Thalia grinned as she sipped at her bottle of Butterbeer. Before she realised it, the blonde had let out an uncharacteristic giggle. Was she drunk or what? Butterbeer wasn't all that alcoholic, was it? Then again, she'd had two bottles now...

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, a tall boy appeared with a huge cake in his hands. Thalia sidled closer towards the group to get a closer look at who was Jessie's new admirer. Anyone who'd bring a cake that size could only be besotted with the birthday girl.

"Ooh, Jess. A boy's brought you a cake!" Thalia gasped, her eyes twinkling mischievously. She nudged the birthday girl forward, whispering into her ear. "He seems sweet and good-looking at that. Forgive him already."

Thalia grinned like the Cheshire cat. Secretly, she'd always wanted to be a matchmaker. This could be her break. Nevertheless, a familiar-looking redhead came along. Lia.

"I wouldn't light this cake if i were you. Those blowers will expload the whole thing. Cake everywhere! Who brought the cake?"

Thalia wondered why not. The cake seemed harmless. However, if Asita and Lia seemed so against it...

"It's that guy." Thalia lazily pointed to the dude holding the cake, addressing him vaguely. His was a new face, and naturally, she didn't have his name. Until she did, she'd have to stick to nicknames in the meantime."Hey, big guy, why don't you hold the cake for us while we light it up?"

If the cake was truly harmless, then the boy would have no problem holding it, now would he? He wouldn't run away.

"Would you like to do the honours, Jessie?" A little Incendio was all it took, after all.

Now, this was going to be fun.

Lia shrugged and grabbed a bottle of Butterbeer, chugging it down. She smiled, and stepped as far away from the crowd as she could so that the cake didn't get all over her.

She would and could never get drunk, so she examined the scene, popping a chocolate eclair into her mouth. Espeon would've loved it here, Lia thought.

Jessie stood happily talking to her friends when her green eyes spotted Colton and she instantly froze. Her green eyes clouding over with a terrified look on her face. She couldn't help but wonder what his purpose really was here. The cake looked good but she was sure his intentions weren't. She looked around nervously for one of her many protectors and seeing none clenched her fists as he approached. Wasn't there someone here who could come to her rescue?

Asita and Lia were warning her about the cake that Colton had brought and she eyed it suspiciously as he offered an apology. Jessie looked to Asita and quietly answered her question,"he set some bludgers free on Amber,Calla and I as we stood on the pitch talking,we weren't prepared for it and someone got hurt protecting us.". Jessie liked Thalia's idea so she swallowed hard before putting on her pretend brave face and telling Colton," That is so sweet of you,would you like to light it for us and sing happy birthday to me?"she asked taunting him. There she goes again getting herself in trouble,would she ever learn to keep her mouth shut? Jessie not only feared Colton but she didn't believe his sorry act for one minute. First the poker game now her party,why did he seem to turn up everywhere Jessie was?

Jessie asked Stella if she would grab the new gifts her friends had offered her and place them on the table next to the others for she was afraid to turn her back on Colton.

"Stella,would you please take these for me so I can show Colton where to put this beautiful cake he brought?" she asked her best friend as a sly smile played across her lips for she had her own ideas of where he could stick it.

Post by: Asita Shan on 04/09/2012 at 21:10
Asita smiled at Thalia. "We should hang out." Asita agreed, grinning at the older girl.
Asita listene to Jessie, becoming increasing horrified. She stared open mouthed at Jessie, before storming over to the boy.
"Do you think you can just apologise for that? Hurting someone, and thinking that saying sorry will change that?" Asita spat furiously. "It's no surprise I'm not the only one who's suspicious of you! And now, you're trying to ruin my best friend's sixteen birthday party!"
Asita glared at the boy, before walking back over to Jessie.
"Jessie, can I please kick that sorry excuse for a human being out of here now, before I hit him? I could do both, if you wanted."

Jessie smiled at how Asita wanted to protect her,she was a feisty little thing. Jessie put her hand on her cousin's shoulder to calm her before whispering,"Let's just wait and see what happens,I'm curious to see how brave he is on my turf with my friends." Jessie said as she smiled deviously.

There were so many people around what was he going to do,throw Jessie in the lake or something? He was harmless here,she hoped. She pulled Asita away and directed her towards where Stella was so she didn't end up throwing a punch at Colton the way amber had on the pitch. She turned her attention to her other party guests. She turned up the music,grabbed another bottle of butterbeer and started talking to her guests. Her attention on her friends who had come here today to celebrate her birthday. Happiness flooded through her as she looked at the turn out and it was still early.

Damon was very excited he had never been invited to a birthday party before. He had put on some of the best clothes he had so he could meet new friends.

Damon walked down to the lake wondering how many new people he would meet. he was so excited.

Damon got to the lake and looked around to see all the people and got a little shy but still tried to be open.

He saw Jessie so he walked up to her. "Hi Jessie, I made it." He stood next to jessie and tried not to make eye contact with anybody else.

Claire smiled at Asita, and introduced herself as Claire. Thalia had complimented on her appearance, and she didn't know how to reply back except with a simple "Thank you!"

Sure, she was very pleased by the compliment, but she had thought this dress was not formal enough. People started arriving left and right, Claire greeted and talked to a few people. The a boy who seemingly did something horrible came to apologize to Jessie, the boy had even brought a cake. Expensive gesture...that was pretty nice of him...

"I wouldn't light this cake if i were you. Those blowers will expload the whole thing. Cake everywhere! Who brought the cake?" Lia had conveniently pointed out.

Oooh! Who goes through all that trouble just to prank someone? Claire thought and smile forming, she couldn't help but let out a few laughs.

" That is so sweet of you,would you like to light it for us and sing happy birthday to me?" Jessie said confidently, Claire really wanted to say, "Good going!" and give her thumbs up or something, but decided against it.

"You heard her, the birthday girl is waiting!" She said before she could stop herself, and made an overly sweet smile at Colton that people could probably tell was not genuine. Before she knew it, the girl that had asked for her name was going off at Colton angrily.

Jessie had directed her attention to the guest, so Claire went back to socializing and putting the boy out of her mind. Claire was very impressed by how Jessie handled the situation, cool and calm wins the game.

Lia was now on her fourth bottle of butterbeer and was filling a bit light on her feet. She ate another chocolate cup-cake, and curled one of her red locks.

"That is so sweet of you,would you like to light it for us and sing happy birthday to me?"

Lia giggled for no reason. But then she felt instantly sober and set the bottle down, deciding to mingle. She walked to a girl who looked like she was probably a second year, and smiled, sticking out her hand to shake.

"Hi!" she cheerily siad. "You're Asita, right? I'm Ophelia, but call me Lia. How long have you known the birthday girl?" Lia asked, with genuine interest.

Jessie was happily socializing with her guests when she saw Damon arrive,her smile lit up her face as she excused herself to go greet the shy new friend she had made in the forest just one day prior. She bounced over to him,giving him a slight hug so as not to freak him out but that's what Jessie did,she hugged people when she was happy to see them.

"Damon,I'm so glad you made it,I was hoping you would. Come on I will introduce you to my friends."Jessie offered taking him around and introducing him to everyone. Joelle wasn't there yet but she was bringing Jessie's real cake and would be here soon. Jessie started by introducing Damon to Asita since she was closer to his age and worked her way around the party stopping to grab a butterbeer from the refreshment table.

"Would you like anything to eat or drink?" She asked Damon wanting to get it for him and make him feel comfortable. She knew he was shy and it probably took a lot for him to show up at her party. She was truly grateful for that.

Asita smiled at Lia. "Yeah, I'm Asita. Nice to meet you, Lia." Asita grinned excitedly. "I've known Jessie since I started last year, and it does help we're cousins."
Asita looked up as Jessie introduced her to a small boy, probably only a first year.
"Hi, you must be Damon. I'm Asita Shan, Jessie's cousin. I suppose you must be a first year." Asita smiled gently at the young boy. "I was a first year last year, so if you need any help, I'll be glad to give it."

And so he was found out.

But not so accurately. There were trick blowers on the cake, but the ones that would explode were those he had poked inside its body. Because you could light the ones on top and they would take flame as any other candle but it took them a couple minutes to burn down wicks and explode. For a more immediate reaction, it took force -- such as throwing them on the ground -- to make trick blowers explode.

Cutting the cake would be the part of the celebration he was aiming to miss. Colt had no qualms with lighting them and mumbling a quick song, but he was sure Jessie would be the one wielding the knife to cut the first piece.

Colt glanced casually at Ophelia, weighing her worth in the term of respect, money, and looks, in his mind. Frankly, he didn't come up with much. Not true, less than much; she earned some negative points for possibly ruining what could have made this party a real blast.

"That is so sweet of you,would you like to light it for us and sing happy birthday to me?"

"You heard her, the birthday girl is waiting!"

The smile deepened in his cheeks. "Sure, I'll do that." He placed it on the checkered table and removed his engraved lighter. "Everyone ready?"

"It's nice to meet you Asita". Damon had a large smile on his face and his cheeks were bright red. He turned to jessie and spoke,"I would love some butterbeer if that is no trouble." Damon turned back toward Asita and said,"I am a first year and if I do need help i will surely ask." Damon was so nervous and had no clue what to do next.

Damon looked around quietly waiting for a response from Asita or Jessie.

Lia, for the first time, glanced this Colton boy over. He didn't look terrible looks wise, but his personlaity was a bit loose.

She curled her hair. Originally of course, Lia's hair was not bright red. When she turned ten she demanded they dye it red, and for whatever reason, (Lia suspceted it was her magical abilities) it grew bright red ever since.

Lia's family did quite well in the muggle world. Of course, she was muggle-born, so her parents have muggle jobs. Her dad, first off, is a CSI agent, which brings in a lot of money quite well. Her mom's head editor in a big News-paper, so that wasn't bad either. They lived in a pent-house in London. though they frequently visited their chetteu in France.

But no matter how much money they had, Ophelia's hair grew red whatever they tried.

She prepared for the cutting of the cake, grabbing another glass of butter-beer. Lia  preffered Bollinger's Vieille Vignes Francaises, her parents allowed her to drink and smoke, as most Europeans do. But butter-beer ought to do, she guessed.

Asita smiled at Damon.
"It's alright. I was a bit shy too, when I first started. But it's alright. There's quite a few nice people like Jessie around. If you want, when we start back at Hogwarts, we could meet up once in a while and just hang out, if you want." Asita offered. While it was true she had been shy when she started, she hadn't been shy on this scale.
Turning towards Jessie, Asita looked around.
"Jessie, is Amber coming?" Looking over towards Colton, Asita glared at him. "Why does't he stay and have some of the cake he's so delightfully made for us?" Asita asked Jessie, glaring darkly at the intruder.

Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 21:21
Damon smiled at Asita. "That would be great to have a friend thank you." Damon saw that Asita was looking at the boy and said,"I'm sorry but if you dont mind me asking is there a grudge going on between you to." Damon placed his hands in his pockets with his thumbs sticking out.

Damon looked and examined the guy and he didn't look like a bad guy. Damon stood waiting for someone else to talk.

Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 21:29
Asita shrugged.
"Well, I've just met him, but he throw some bludgers at my friends," Asita nodded towards Jessie. "Bludgers are this balls that can break bones if they hit you." Asita explained, smiling at Damon. "And someone got hurt really badly 'cause of him." Asita glared at him darkly. "I don't forgive people for doing that intentionally. If it was an accident, yeah, okay, that happens. But, when someone does that to try and hurt someone." Asita gritted her teeth. "Let's just say if that had hit someone on the head really hard, that person could have died." Asita bit her lip. "Anyway, Damon, let's talk about more cheerful things than egoistic, self centered fools. What house do you want to be in?"

Damon's smile went down a bit for that guy didn't sound nice at all." I would prefer Hufflepuff over anything" Damon Said. Life was happy now after he left home and met new friends.

Damon thought Asita and Jessie were two of the nicest people he had ever met. He waited for a response from Asita or Jessie.

Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 21:44
Asita grinned. "Well, after all, if you're in there, you'll have Jessie to look after you. It would really suit you if you did to there, though to be honest, I don't mind what house you're in, or speaking of that, your bloodstatus either." Asita bit her lip.
"Damon, talking about that sort of stuff, I know one or two people who would most likely be really mean to you if they found anything out." Asita looked at the younger boy, and smiled at him. "If anyone's mean to you about that stuff, you come and find me, alright? There are very few people, but still people, who would be cruel to you cause of that. If they are, come and get me, and I'll talk to them, 'kay?"

Damon smiled at Asita and said "I promise i'll come and talk to you." Damon loved having friends who were willing to look out for him especially ones that were as nice as Asita and Jessie.

Damon smiled and looked around again smiling waiting for Asita to respond.

Asita smiled at Damon. "Good," she nodded, then looked at the refreshments table, then back at Jessie.
"Do you want a drink?" Asita asked, nodding towards the drinks. "If I were you, I wouldn't try the Butterbeer." She paused slightly. "It's a bit too strong for first years. But then again, I'm not you, and I am no longer a first year." Asita grinned widely. "Who knows? You might be able to hold your drink better than me." She shrugged. "Anyway, it's your choice."

Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 22:06
Damon giggled to himself."I might as well try it, Never have before" Damon walked over to the refreshments and picked up some butterbeer. He took a small first drink and didnt think it was bad.

Damon walked back and asked Asita, "Can I get you anything to drink." Damon really wanted to tell her he liked her but they just met and it didnt seem right.

Damon sipped on his butterbeer while waiting to see if she was thirsty.

Asita smiled at Damon. "No, I'm alright for now. Just enjoying being near my friends." Asita raised an eyebrow at Damon. "And that includes you." She could sense Damon's nervousness, and grinned. "Now, there's no need to be shy around me, is there? I just about your age, when," Asita gestured towards the rest of the party. "They are fourth years at least."
Asita watched Damon drink his Butterbeer. "It may be Butterbeer," Asita giggled softly. "But that doesn't mean you can't get drunk on it."

Damon giggled at Asita's last comment and replied,"Its not like i'm chugging it just sipping." Damon was So happy Asita considered him a friend and he felt no longer shy around her he had really no reason to be.

Damon looked around and she was right everyone looked at least 4th years at the party and some looked a lot older. Damon looked for a place to sit and saw two empty seats on a small bench."Would you like to go sit down." Damon asked.

He continued to sip the butterbeer although not as much as before and waited for a response.

Asita chuckled, delighted.
"My point still stands," she grinned, laughing. "I was only pointing it out so I don't have to drag you back to your cabin."
Asita stared at Damon, surprised. "God, you're a little gentleman, aren't you?" Asita smiled. "Then again, so far, your year seems to have more gentlemen than mine does!" Asita nodded.
 "And thank you, yes I would." Asita sat next to Damon, shivering slightly as a cold wind drifted past.

More people arrived at the party, most were new faces, some of which she couldn't put a name to. Yet, she hardly cared about that.

What she was most interested in was that cake and that suspicious-looking dude that came along with it. Thalia was waiting for the thing to explode already.

Thalia opened her fifth, or was it the sixth?, bottle of Butterbeer. At this point, the girl swayed dangerously on her feet, her speech slurred slightly. Perhaps, she ought to stop drinking.

The night was still young and drunk was the last thing she wanted to be.

Gradually, Jessie and company had moved away from Cake Boy, going about their conversations. Thalia, however, decided to stay back. She stood near the cake, peering at it curiously. Casually, she dipped her pinky into the cream, sticking it quickly into her mouth for a taste.

Sweet...with an after taste of what, exactly?

Her eyes flicked up to Cake Boy, head cocked to the side in interest. He was wielding a lighter, a pretty-looking one at that. Now where'd he get that come from?

"Everyone ready?" asked Cake Boy.

The blonde nodded a bit tipsily, but no one else seemed to be listening. She took the opportunity to make small talk with Cake Boy. Everyone deserved the benefit of a doubt, besides, she cannot possibly call him Cake Boy forever. A smirk played on her lips.

"Hey, I'm Thalia. You're new to Hogwarts, aren't you?" Her slighty slurred voice was barely a whisper. Something told her that she wouldn't be quite as well-received if she had been caught fraternitizing with the so-called enemy.

"What's your name? And most importantly, do you really plan on blowing this thing up?"

Damon saw Asita shiver,"Would you like my jacket" Damon removed his jacket and offered it to Asita. Damon also made a comment about the butterbeer,"Don't worry you wont have to drag me back to my cabin you just might have to hold me up." Damon said his comment in a joking manner of course and giggled at the same time

Damon waited to see if Asita would like to wear his jacket and a response.

Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 22:37
Asita smiled, nodding. "If you wouldn't mind," She said, teeth chattering from the cold. "For some reason, I managed to forget mine again."
Asita looked at the Butterbeer longingly. "I think I'll have one glass. Anyway," she joked, "One of us has to be sober, right? Even if I have to hold you the whole way to your cabin." Asita giggled. "What will your cabin mates think, me dragging you in drunk?" Asita smiled, before quickly going to take a glass of butterbeer. She looked at Damon, smiling.
"Make sure I don't get ahold of another one after this. I really don't want to be stumbling the whole way back to my tent."

Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 22:48
Damon salutes jokingly,"Yes Ma'am" he said. Damon thought of what his cabin mates would and giggled silently a bit. Damon hands Asita his jacket and unbuttons the top button of the nice shirt he was wearing to cool down a bit.

Damon took a small sip of his butterbeer and decided to be a little brave."Do you have a boyfriend." Damons mind flooded with unknown answers and thoughts. He was very afraid she would say yes.

Damon waited for a response.

Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 22:52
Asita smiled as Damon laughed. "Thanks," she said as she put the jacket over her thin, red dress.
Asita stared at Damon. "What? Me, with a boyfriend?" Asita laughed. "Damon, you're the first boy I've had a proper chat with since I started here. Of course I don't." Asita grimaced for a moment, then shrugged. "Anyway, who'd want to date me?"
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 22:59
Damon smiles after he hears she doesn't."Why wouldn't somebody want to date you." Damon said without thinking and Blushed brightly.

Damon looked away a bit and took a bit bigger drink of butter beer he still felt sober so he was ok. Damon very much regretted saying that.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 23:07
Asita shrugged. "No idea. I've never really talked to boys before you, to be honest. I've be friends with one other boy, but I haven't seen him in ages."
And now you're mentioning Alexander. I was wondering when that would happen. A small voice muttered in the back of her head.
Shut up! Asita thought furiously, trying to banish all thoughts of him from her head. I will not think about Alexander while talking to my friends.
Quickly, Asita drank roughly half of her butterbeer in one go.
"I'm probably going to regret drinking that much that quickly." She muttered to Damon, giggling.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 23:11
Damon looked back with his cheeks still bright red hoping she wouldn't notice."Only one other boy?" He asked. he thought it seemed off that a girl such as her has only been friends with one other boy.

Damon kept sipping at his own butter beer and noticed she had already downed half of hers "You might wanna slow down or i'll have to carry you back to your cabin." Damon giggled and continued."I mean what would your cabin mates think." Damon giggled again.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 23:25
Asita giggled slightly. "Yeah, only one. I've known him for," Asita frowned, and started counting. "Five years. Though, to be honest, I've haven't seen him since we came to Hogwarts... As if he's been avoiding me..." Asita paused, pouting, before sipping some more butterbeer.
Asita laughed. "Damon, I'm one of the unlucky ones. I only got a stupid tent. But, on the bright side," Asita smiled, "I've only got one tent mate."
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 23:32
Damon saw that the boy is a conversation she didn't want to have so he dropped it."Who's your tent mate." Damon asked. "I wish I had a tent." Damon giggled looking into Asita's eyes. He could get lost in them without even trying.

Damon took a bit bigger gulp of his butter beer and it was almost gone.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 23:42
Asita smiled. "She's one of my best friends, Amber." Looking around, Asita was surprised not to see her friend. "To be honest, I'm surprised she's not here. Then again," Asita giggled softly, blushing as she realised Damon was staring at her, "She probably won't be pleased I've gone and got myself drunk, especially with a boy!" Asita sipped her butterbeer, almost gone, smiling. "Nor will I in the morning, when I've got a hangover!"
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 23:49
Damon felt a bit tipsy and drank the rest of his butter beer."Your not gonna be alone on that." Damon giggled and noticed that Asita was blushing a bit and it made him blush even more."You look cute when you blush." Damon said without thinking and kept staring into her eyes.

Damon placed his cup next to him on the bench."So it's just you and your friend amber?" Damon asked. He placed his hands next to him and sat there looking into her eyes and imagined the feel of her hair.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/10/2012 at 23:54
Asita smiled, giggling again. "Thanks." Asita said, giggling again. "You know you're blushing as well?" She smiled, eyes looking towards the ground under his stare, sipping the last of her butterbeer.
"Pretty much. And since Amber plays Quidditch a lot, I decided I'm gonna try to be on one of the teams during the summer!" Asita grinned. "I could get hurt, but I doubt it. Though," Asita paused mid-sentence, and smiled at Damon. "Damon, do you know what Quidditch is, and how to play? I'm not expert, but I think I could show you how to sometime." Asita paused, blushing again. "If you want me to."
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/10/2012 at 23:59
Damon got a little shy and tried to hide his cheeks."Oh am I." Damon also got a little scared when she said she might get hurt but he pushed through it."I would love to learn Quidditch i have only read about it in many books."

Damon looked at Asita's red cheeks and he thought it was the cutest thing ever.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/11/2012 at 00:05
Asita laughed. "Damon, come on, it's not like you can choose when you blushed," Asita paused for a moment. "Though, that would be pretty cool if you could." Asita murmured, then blushed. "See?" she giggled, "This is what happens when I'm drunk..."
"I could teach you, but Jessie and Amber have been playing for ages." Asita sat up straight. "I know! They could teach us both how to play Quidditch together!"
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/11/2012 at 00:16
Damon smiled,"That would be great I would love to learn Quidditch." Damon blushed a deep dark red. He had never talked to a girl for this long before. Although he wasn't shy around her.

Damon raised his hands and stretched and place his hands next to him.

Asita grinned, swaying slightly. "Then it's a date!" She laughed, slurring her words everso slightly. "I will ask Amber and Jessie and see if they can teach us, before my first Quidditch march..." Asita frowned slightly. "I didn't mean to say march, I meant to say match. Anyway, I haven't really seen Amber this summer, except at my tent..." Asita rolled her eyes. "Silly me. I forgot to ask, who do you share with?"

Damon smiled the biggest smile when Asita said date he just wanted to jump up and scream to the world."I dont really know anyone in the cabin with me," He saw Asita frown and giggled a bit."You dont have to be embarassed about that it's really cute." Damon placed his hand on her leg and didnt move it this time he just left it there.

"I hope Jessie and Amber say it's ok." Damon said and started blushing cause his hand was still on her leg.
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Asita Shan on 04/11/2012 at 00:47
Asita smiled, her whole leg tingling as Damon put his hand on her leg. Carefully, she put her hand on top, blushing as her leg tingled where he was touching it.
"I'm certain Jessie and Amber will agree." Asita murmured quietly, her words slightly slurred from the butterbeer. "If not, and I doubt that will happen, I could get someone from last year's team to teach us."
Title: Re: Sweet 16 and never been kissed....(open)
Post by: Damon Garcia on 04/11/2012 at 00:53
Damon's hand was tingling as Asita placed her hand on his and he felt happy and blushed."I hope that Jessie and Amber would teach us that would be amazing." Damon still felt a bit tipsy yet a bit less at the same time.

Damon gently started rubbing Asita's leg and felt very shy again for some reason.

Asita felt the blood rush to her head as Damon rubbed her leg.
"Um, Damon," Asita said, suddenly feeling out of her depth. "I do like this, but it's just a bit too... Fast for me." Asita said quietly. "I liked it when you were just touching my leg, but..."

Lia was getting drunker as it got darker. She was on her 5th or 6th butterbeer, and was becoming giggly, merry, tipsy, and slurry. A lot of -y's.

She couldn't help but notice an obvious flirting session between young Asita and the new boy.

"Ah, young love!" Lia sighed. There was nothing more irratating than kids under the age of 15 claiming they were in love, and dating. It was beyond irratating for Lia, but it wasn't her place to butt in. She sipped her butter-beer, and inched closer to the lake subconsciosuly.

Before she knew what was happening, she has slipped and was sinking into the water quick. She kicked with her feet to the top, trying to get there, but she felt something was pulling her down. Why did she drink so much?!

In panic she let out a gush of air form her mouth, slowly blacking out. No, she thought, i can do this. She pushed and kicked and finnaly broke the surface, gasping for air. For whatever reason, she was laughing like crazy.

"Anone going to help me out of the water?" Lia slurred in french, splashing around. Whenever she got too drunk, she would forget English and speak only French. It was a curse, but she hoped they'd get the idea.

"Oh" Damon slightly exclaimed. Damon stopped rubbing her leg."I am so sorry i was completely unaware" Damon said. He felt very embarrassed and for some reason felt like he was going to cry.

Damon started to tear up a bit but held it back so he wouldn't cry.

Asita blushed slightly. "It's alright. I was just caught unaware." Asita explained, blushing slightly.
Asita looked up in time to see Lia get dragged into the lake.
"You okay?" Asita asked, before realising that Lia was drunk, and had no hope of getting out without help. Sighing, Asita looked around, and quickly jumped in the water, swimming over towards Lia, before dragging her out of the water, shivering and shaking from the cold water as they reached dry land.
"Not a party without people falling into the freezing cold water at night, is it?" Asita said, her teeth chattering from the cold.

Damon got up after Asita jumped in the water."Are you guys ok, oh and thank you for getting my jacket wet." Damon said the last part jokingly and giggled. Damon stood next to Asita Making sure she and the other girl were both ok.

When Colton said he would light the candles and sing to her,Jessie grabbed a nife to cut into the cake afterwards. She smiled before finishing her butterbeer in one gulp and looked up to him.

"Well after you than Colton,you light it and sing and I will cut it afterwards. I'll follow you to the refreshment table then." she said calling his bluff for she was sure the cake would explode when he lit it. She grabbed another butterbeer and looked around,Asita and Damon seemed to be getting along well and Jessie was glad she had introduced them and met Damon the day before. She opened her butterbeer and took a drink as she eyed Colton suspiciously.

Jessie thought that she should probably watch how much she drank because even if she let her guard down a little she feared Colton would seize the opportunity to intimidate her. The butterbeer may make her fear him less but she wasn't sure that was a good thing.

Jessie didn't even hear the commotion going on down by the lake for all her concentration was on Colton's next move. She knew he wasn't there of pure intentions and she wouldn't be giving him the chance to ruin her party. She looked around wondering where the rest of her guests were.

Paranoia seemed to be contagious after Ophelia had opened her mouth, as if the words had somehow become a passable poison that was added to the punch. Wary, his hazel eyes swept over to the tables to where a cluster of butterbeers were waiting, the glass bottles dull with frost. He wet his bottom lip. Maybe drinking a few would take the edge of his anxiety; this party was supposed to be fun after all.

"Why does't he stay and have some of the cake he's so delightfully made for us?" 

He only smiled lightly at the girl's bitter words. Colt would take the next chance to slip out once he lit the candles, but he wasn't going to leave unless he had a butterbeer in each hand first. There wasn't much else to do other than light the cake so he turned and flicked his lighter, a flame. It would have touched the first candle but then a small girl on uneasy steps sauntered up to him and it took him a second to register her words through the verbal slurry:

"Hey, I'm Thalia. You're new to Hogwarts, aren't you? "What's your name? And most importantly, do you really plan on blowing this thing up?“

His thumb flicked the lighter shut-- he had to light them all in one go or one of them might just explode before he was done with flaming all of them. He couldn't help it, the corners of his mouth tugged up mischievously; drunk girls were hilarious. “Colton Humpledink. A transfer,” He nodded his head in a bow; she probably wasn't going to remember him anyway. “I have no idea what would give you that idea. Cakes can't just be cakes nowadays?”

"Well after you then Colton,you light it and sing and I will cut it afterwards..."

That was all the incentive he needed. Colt drew his lighter out and after sparking it, passed his arm quickly over the trick blower wicks. It was an impressive move, one pass and they were all lit. Now, as he watched, time was starting to race against him (2 minutes before the top blowers exploded) – he had to get out and away before one of them haphazardly went off by accident or if Jesse suddenly fell against the cake. He turned to her casually, “See? I lit it, it's fine.”

But even then, she wouldn't let him leave, he could tell that much, not by how she was looking at him now. So he did what came naturally to him – call it a diversion strategy, applicable on or off the quidditch pitch. Colt leaned forward slowly and pressed his lips lightly to her face, against the smooth skin half an inch past the corner of her mouth: a half-kiss, but an effective one.

He drew back with a private smile, hazel eyes darkening to black. “Happy birthday, Jessie.” Then he turned and strolled away on easy steps, taking advantage of what he assumed would stun her. His hands plucked two butterbeers from the side table as he put himself a safe distance away.

With the knife in her hand she stood stunned,she hadn't expected that. Her face was turning bright red. The anger rose in her how dare he kiss her? Her first kiss was supposed to be magical and sweet and not from him. She threw the knife at the cake he had brought and a second later it exploded covering her in the sweet confection. Frosting and cake covered  her dress that she had gotten just for her party. Clumps of it hung from her blonde curls and her face was covered in it. Tears filled her green eyes as she tried to clear her face of cake.

She dropped her bottle of butterbeer and ran at him screaming like a mad woman.
"How dare you,come back here you coward!" she screamed. She was gaining on him and wasn't sure what she would do when she caught up to him but she was furious and he would not take away this special day,it was hers not his to ruin. She didn't care anymore whether she feared him he had pissed her off and he wasn't going to get away with it.

When she caught up to him,she threw herself at him,arms flailing,tears in her eyes and anger on her face. she had just enough liquid courage in her to not care what consequences her actions would bring. She wasn't going to stop until she ripped his face off or some similar action.

Asita jumped back as something exploded, falling backwards. Jumping back up, she realised that Jessie was running after the boy, screaming madly.
"Oh hell." Asita muttered, before running after Jessie, unsure of whether to stop Jessie or to punch the idiot who had ruined her best friend's birthday.
I wonder if Jessie would stop me if I punched him now.
After a moment, Asita grinned.
Only after she's punched him herself.
"Jessie, wait!" Asita yelled, trying to catch up with the two older kids.

Damon was a little shocked after the cake exploded commotion everywhere. Jessie was running after the boy everyone seemed to be mad at he had no clue what was going on should he help or do nothing. He could conjure his birds again and use them to attack and stop him but he was very unsure of what to do.

It had only taken four steps before the grass shook under his feet. BANG! and shrieks and yells were accompanied with undertones of wet splats, each marking where pieces of the cake rose and fell. Colt turned back and laughed hard as he clutched his stolen butterbeers. His eyes teary, his body shook with mirth as he took in the scene:

Most of the party goers were wide eyed with the deer-in-the-headlights look-- as if an unforeseen catastrophe had happened. They clutched their napkins, staring straight in shock or dabbing at their clothes hastily. Jessie stood closest to the explosion and was now a tint of bright yellow. Her tailored floral dress was now literally caked in canary icing. He could barely make out her frustration under the white cream layer. Colt doubled over, shaking with obnoxious laughter and he was breathless when he looked up again.

"How dare you,come back here you coward!"

Her arms were outstretched, reaching for his face. Colt blinked and his body acted, he was lucky to be blessed with quidditch instincts. He swung around and caught her wrists. But he had underestimated her strength because his shoes began to slip on pebbles. They were too close to the lake. With a internal groan, he felt his body lean much to far back and left and he couldn't keep balance. The water closed over him and rushed up his nose, the consequential coughing made him release her.

He surfaced, smacking a wet palm down his face to clear off the water. “Can't you just be happy you got a kiss?” Colt tried to continue but he was caught in a fit of uncontrollable laughter again.

There wasn't a lot that surprised Elsbeth anymore, what with all of the madness of the past three years and the countless times she'd nearly been maimed about the castle, but people always managed to catch her off guard. She had never spoken to Jessie more than those polite, meaningless words passed between acquaintances trapped in forced conversation or chance encounters. Never the less she had found herself with an invitation to the girl's sixteenth birthday party.

Perhaps this was the doing of her younger sister, Jo, whom she'd grown rather close to last term. She had often thought of Joelle as her own little sister, which she supposed made Jessie the older sister she never had, nor met, nor really knew existed. She didn't really feel up to another dreadful party, these things never went well, but she had spent all Summer working at the bakery and getting away for a bit was more than a touch welcome.

Always fashionably late Elsie descended upon the party upon the shabby old broom her mother had passed down to her, losing bits of straw all the way. Sitting side saddle, as a proper lady should, her yellow sun dress flagged and fluttered like a brilliant streamer. A halo of golden curls whipped about her face as she neared the gathering of students by the lake. And then it happened. There was an explosion and madness ensued. There was screaming, running, and flying cutlery.

Touching down by a few other dazed onlookers the out-of-uniform Ravenclaw dusted herself off and considered reaching for the wand sheathed in a sleevelet along her left arm. It wasn't terribly subtle, but she couldn't find a good place to keep it on her dress and it was too long for her handbag. "Blood heck, what's going on? Did that boy explode the cake? Or... are they about to passionately make-out like in the movies?" You know, the ones with the couples rolling about on the beach.

"I'm late." She heaved. She was never late. There was a little skip in her step as she rushed towards the lakeside. Ebony wore her light pink dress for an occasion like this, she supposed she ought to. A girls sweet sixteen was an important day in a girl's life, she knew. And she only knew so because her muggle cousin Aleia rambled on about it for a good year before she turned sixteen, the more mature age, the age where she cleaned out her mother’s wallet completely. Though she had always been good at that.

In two days it would be her birthday, she was still a year from becoming a teenager but she was excited nonetheless. Birthdays always drew excitement.

She arrived just as an argument had erupted but quickly died down. "Happy Birthday Jessie!" Eb dug into her satchel for the present and then handed it over to her, cerulean eyes bright. She had most likely received many necklaces for her birthday but a girl could never have enough jewerelly. Aleia had also mentioned that once or twice before. The gift had been a sweet sixteen charm that dangled off of a golden chain. It hadn't been real gold but it was nice enough.

"Hi Asita." She smiled, though it was an uneasy one. Eb could only smile at the others that she didn't quite recognise.

It seemed only a minute after that Eb froze, stunned at the scene before her. The cake was lit, suspicious Ebony fell a step or two back, watching the boy who seemed to be retreating. Ducking as the cake exploded, her eyed followed the rage. She couldn't believe a boy to be so arrogant, so disrespectful. Narrowing her gaze at him she stepped beside Asita, who she sincerely hoped would break it up.

Colton grabbed her wrists as she lunged at his face,he held on tightly but Jessie was still raging and going after him. In her struggles she had knocked them both into the lake. It wasn't until they hit the water that he let go of Jessie's wrists. Now she was soaking wet and mad as a hornet. Although she didn't have much cake left on her,only yellow stains as a reminder of Colton.

He was still laughing but at least he had fallen in with her so he would be wet as well. Her blonde hair dripped in her face as she struggled to find her footing on the bottom of the lake causing her to slip under the water one more time. When she resurfaced for the second time she glared at him wishing her eyes could burn a hole through that smug face and laughter of his. She swung her arm back in preparation to slap him across the face,when he said the words that made her stop in her tracks. He was right he had been the one person to have given her her birthday wish,but it wasn't supposed to be like this and not from him. It wasn't right he didn't get to steal that moment away from her. She pictured in her head someday telling her own daughter about her first kiss and this isn't what she had pictured,it was all wrong.

Jessie wasn't sure if she should hit him or hang her head and cry so with shaking hands  she put her hands over her face so he wouldn't see her eyes and tried to get out of the lake before she let him see her cry. She wouldn't give him the satisfaction. She galred at him before saying,"So what do you expect me to thank you,well thanks for nothing special!". She nearly spat the words out at him as she shook in the water.

Damon reached down toward the lake "Jessie give me your hand i'll help you out" Damon waited for Jessie to grab his hand so he could help her out.

Joelle walked carefully towards the lake,her tiny arms carrying the cake she had been in charge of ordering from Mr.Mann at the bakery. She took slow careful steps so as not to ruin the surprise cake she had brought for her sister. As she walked she concentrated on getting the treat there safely but also hoped that Jessie had kept her word and invited Elsbeth,Joelle missed Elsie and hadn't seen her since she went home for the summer. She only had a few hours before her parents came to retrieve her and take her back home. She hoped Ebony would also be there for they had been partnered together in Charms class and she liked the girl who was just as small as Joelle.

She carefully placed the cake on the refreshments table before looking around for Jessie. Her face lit up when she spied Elsie and Eboy. Running over to Elsbeth she wrapped her tiny arms around her saying how much she had missed her. She smiled as she looked at the job Jessie had done decorating for the party. Jessie had always been good at that kind of thing.

Joelle saw Ebony and of course their cousin Asita was in attendance as well. At least Jo would know some people here. She couldn't find Jessie though and figured jessie was probably socializing somewhere and would turn up eventually. She turned to Elsie and asked," How has your summer been?"

"Merci beucoup!" Lia giggled, stumbling on her feet. She wrapped the soaking small coat around the brave second year and skipped to the cake which was about to be lit.

Then she remembered that the cake would expload. She was sure of it. Endless hours of reading human psychology came in handy. She backed away from the lit blowers, and hid just in time behind a fat tree to shield her from the cake.

Lia popped her head around, and saw a mad Jessie running towards the bad kid. Then they both fell in the water.

Lia laughed for no reason. Wasn't it funny how she was just there?Pouting her lips, she wished she still was. It would be fun! But then she saw how upset Jessie was, and rushed over to the bank.

"Espèce de salaud ..." Lia said bitterly, eyeing him angrily. Boy, Lia would've exploaded just like that cake with anger if this happened to her.

Without batting an eye, Lia jumped in the river and started kicking the guy. But he was a bit too strong, so she reached for her wand and realized it wasn't there. Damn, she swore, i left it at the cabin

"You're lucky i'm forgetfull!" Lia said, English coming back to her. She swam over to where Jessie was and asked her gently.

"Are you okay?"

Who was Florence Prothero?

He had no idea who she was, but she had to be some important lady to have a debutante ball.  An important wizarding event he had to actually look up in a library to see what was.  It sounded fun.  It also was in England and had his parents send him arrangements to get a portkey to get to England.  It turned out a few galleons and a sick note later and he was not going to meet this Florence.  After all, in his mind one Florence was enough and Snodgrass had to be better than whomever this girl was.

That left him walking around the hangout now with no one suspecting the wiser.  Of course the people at Salem should they look for him would be surprised not to find him, but unless they told the Pendragon's he was free.  Though even if the Pendragons managed to get informed he could pull the making connections card.  Even better he thought he even managed to get Jessie a decent present that had nothing to do with candy. 

Hopefully she would like the jacket he bought her.  If not the box of tea might entertain her.

Though as he walked towards the lake catching noticing Joelle with a cake ahead of him, he wondered just how late he was.  Then he smiled as Joelle went towards some girl he could not remember who was.  Part of him hoped he had been replaced in some way by others over the summer as he knew he was a rather rubbish friend.

Unfortunately as he put his present down on table near the cake and looked towards the lake he was rather certain he wasn't .  Looking at the kids in the lake he wished he was not fully dressed with black pants and a grey collared shirt.  He certainly did not fit in with the party.  Paras shouted " Over here birthday girl.  Your sister brought cake. "

Figuring cake could distract both from his lateness and perhaps from whatever had just gone wrong.  With a smile he added a point to the tally of the number of times perfect timing by Joelle saved the day.

Post by: Colton Brent on 04/12/2012 at 02:03
Normally, girls were ecstatic when he kissed them – or at the very least, pleased. It was odd to have her shouting at him for doing something he usually was thanked for. Was it truly that big of a deal? In her lifetime, there was bound to be hundreds of kisses she would received and forget and Colton's would just be one of them.

"So what do you expect me to thank you,well thanks for nothing special!”

He smiled, lupine and amused. “My kisses are nothing special? Aw, that hurts inside.”

It really didn't hit him how much a kiss meant to her – even if it was her first kiss, he wasn't all that surprised that Jesse was freaking out, it seemed to be a habit of her's. She got upset over the bludgers, over some cake...what would be next?

Colton didn't have time to think about it because the next moment Ophelia appeared in the water, spewing some foreign insults at him in spite, french, he thought. Then her fire red hair swung wildly as she raised her foot and started kicking him and frankly, he was surprised she was still able to slosh around in the water given how much butterbeers she drank. The first kick caught he by surprise and he had to take a step back.

“Whoa.” He held his palms up to ward away any other further attacks but it seemed she soon lost interest because she moved onto Jesse.

Jessie stopped screaming at Colton when she swore she heard Paras's voice. Had he actually made it to her party? She hadn't wanted to believe he wouldn't show up but she understood that he had been in America for the summer and maybe wouldn't be able to. She turned her tear filled eyes to him and started exiting the lake. Her dress now soaked hung on her like a used garbage bag,dripping puddles at her feet. Her hair wet and stringy still held pieces of cake thanks to Colton. Her make up running down her face from a combination of tears and lake water made her look like a rejected clown but she didn't care Paras was here.

She made her way out of the lake glancing back at Colton, as she hit dry land her long legs broke out into a run. Tears running down her face as she sobbed trying to catch her breath. Without a word she threw herself at him crying,she wrapped her arms around him. She had never hugged him before but she had never been so glad to see him before either. Her thin body trembled from the cold she was now feeling from being thrown in the lake and wet and with the frustration with Colton.

"Paras,you made it,I'm so happy to see you.I've missed you this summer."she cried barely able to breathe. She couldn't catch her breath.

Joelle had brought Jessie a cake but she was quite sure she had had her fill of cake for the day and she hadn't even eaten a bite of it.

Post by: Elsbeth Moriarty on 04/13/2012 at 04:43
There was an inconsistency in people that Elsie could never quite comprehend. Jessie's actions were an enigma to the off-duty Raven, but perhaps she simply didn't have enough information to make sense of the situation since she was forced to glean information from those around her as no one was so kind as to fill her in on the details. But from what she'd overheard the boy in the water had snogged Jessie who proceeded to throttle him, or at least attempt to. She had spent the majority of the past year hunting for a kiss, which was arguably a complete failure, so she couldn't understand why Jessie would be so upset by an overt token of someone's affection. And on her birthday no less! Then again, maybe it was a bad kiss. Those existed, or so she'd read in her mother's magazines.

Further speculation on the quality of the unknown boy's kissing prowess was suspended by a familiar sight, in fact two familiar sights. Joelle came sidling into view carrying a rather marvelous looking cake which brought a wide, proud smile to Elsie's porcelain cheeks. It brightened her mood considerably to find a friendly face amongst this crowd of distant figures. Sure, she'd spoken to a few of them before, and even made a fool of herself in front of Paras even though he was kind enough to ignore it. But few of them had gotten close to her, the only other exception was Ebony, her partner in crime. She thought she had seen Asita as well, another first year... second year soon, whom she'd guided through the castle's circuitous halls. Not sure that she'd call her a friend, however.

As Jo ran up to her she held out her slender arms in anticipation of the inevitable hug. Embracing the younger girl firmly, or as firmly as her willowy limbs would allow, she let out a soft peel of laughter to express her own pleasure in seeing her confidante again. "This Summer? I've spent all of my time at the Muffin Mann. You have me to thank for the baking of that cake if I'm not mistaken. James handled the icing though, I still need a bit of practice at that part." She pointed towards the cake with her nose as she spoke of it, as if Jo might not know to which cake she was referring. "And how about you? Staying out of trouble?"

Joelle was so happy to see Elsie,since fate had made their friendship happen due to the actions of someone else. She was so excited that Elsie had helped bake Jessie's special cake even if for some reason there appeared to have been another cake that had been destroyed. There were cake pieces everywhere which led Joelle to assume that something had happened which was why Jessie was in the lake screaming at a boy Jo didn't know.

"My summer has been alright. My parents say I'm too young to stay at the Hangout for the summer,but Jessie is staying here so it's been just the three of us. We have been doing a lot of fun things together but I miss Jessie and my friends that are allowed to stay."Joelle said with just a hint of disappointment."Mr.Mann was really nice when I ordered Jessie's cake all by myself,how do you like working for him?"Joelle wondered.

That's when she heard Paras call out to Jessie and she turned to look at him,she smiled and waved shyly before casting her eyes at the ground. She didn't know if she should go talk to him or not. After all,he really was Jessie's friend but she had been his Divination partner last term. So she excused herself from Elsie and timidly walked over to Paras.

"Hi Paras,How's your summer going?"She inquired quietly. That's when Jessie came running up to him crying and threw herself at him in a hug. Joelle wasn't sure what had all happened but Jessie was horribly upset. Joelle saw a girl with bright,red hair in the lake fighting with the boy Jessie had been screaming at and wondered what had happened before her arrival. Jessie was soaked and disheveled and Joelle just stood there silently trying to figure out why on the day she had been looking forward to all year she was so upset.

Now he realised how Jessie must've felt when she approached the Muffin Mann that night. He had never had a problem talking to people but the prospect of being the older than everyone else there, coupled with the likelihood that there will be many of Jessie's friends there and he wasn't sure exactly what she had told them about that night, or him.

He had bought her a white gold locket that stored a photo of them at the Muffin Mann, the picture displaying the two hand in hand, laughing and nearly folding over with James stood behind them laughing. The picture was in black and white but he felt it encaptured their friendship perfectly. He had it tucked away in a small crimson box that had been decorated with a purple box that he had put in his pocket as he made his way to the lake.

As soon as he came to the clearing by the lake, it was evident where the party was at. There were seemingly a vast group down by the edge of the lake but only one figure stood out. He saw Jessie ahead of any other student there. The question now is, how will he go about introducing himself to such a vast crowd, with only Jessie knowing who he was, he couldn't help -

With a second glance he realised that the figure he had slowly started to approach was actually Jessie's younger sister Joelle who had the pleasure of meeting at the start of the year. A situation that could've both been embarrassing and unfortunate. His eyes gazed around the crowd, trying to spy the birthday girl.

With a smile he saw Joelle and said " Got sent to America.  Not as exciting as I thought it would be.   You? "  Figuring Joelle would want some semblance of the truth.  As he had spent most the summer practicing flying on a pitch on the other side of the country, while wondering what was happening in this one.  Perhaps he would manage a trip to London later today.

He had obviously missed something.  As while he had expected Jessie to be happy to see him he did not expect this much crying.  Of course years of experience with older sisters like Pryia made him automatically hug her back while looking over her shoulder at the others.  The probably was it was either innocent faces or ones he did not know.

He'd figure it out later.  For now he just smiled down at Jessie and said quietly " Parents made arrangements for some debutante's ball and I played sick. Figured this would be more fun. "  At least he sent a letter and a present to the girl, along with his friend Florence Snodgrass who had the same birthday.

He ignored the fact that she made his clothes wet.

Stepping back he said " Looks like the summer has treated you well. "

Damon saw that everyone was fine now and that they all found someone to talk to. Damon walked back to the bench and sat down.

After all was said and done, Damon did feel a bit lonely and left out but he was used to the feeling.

Damon had thoughts in his head of different creatures you could find at lakes but for some reason it was all fuzzy. He saw a flower on the ground and picked it up and began pulling out each petal one by one.

Stella helped out her newly-sixteen year old friend by moving the giant stack of presents onto the table Jessie pointed out for her to do so.

As the party unraveled, Stella helped herself to a butterbeer. She started by sipping, but as she remembered how good the stuff was, she began to pour it down her throat and had to scold herself halfway down. Stella inwardly sighed, putting it on the table at her claimed place.

The center of action was around Jessie, of course. Stella had been the center of attention at her sweet 16, too, but hadn't appreciated it as much as Jessie was now. Suddenly, the atmosphere became less cheerful. "How dare you kiss me!" came Stella's best friend's shout. Stella stopped in her tracks. Had someone just stolen Jessie's first kiss? Stella agreed. How dare they!

Jessie pulled herself away from Paras and wiped the tears out of her eyes,realizing she had gotten him all wet. She looked at him apologetically and said,"Sorry I seem to have gotten you all wet but that vial excuse for a human being has tried to ruin my birthday." she quivered slightly as her body shook. She took out her wand and dried her dress and erased the make up running down her face by casting "scourgify" She looked to Joelle lovingly an asked,"Would you show me the cake you brought?" taking her little sister by the hand.

She turned to Paras to excuse herself for a minute when her eyes spotted Filius. Her brilliant green eyes lit up and a smile crossed her lips. He had showed up for her and it made her happy to see him. She let go of Joelle's hand and turned to Paras,"Thank you for doing that for me, would you please excuse me just for a minute,I will be right back. Please don't leave though."she said pleadingly to Paras. She had only a short time with him before he would have to return and she didn't want to miss any time with him. Besides Colton was still around and she didn't trust him,he was bound to have more tricks up his sleeve to try to ruin this day for her.

She ran up to Filius and wrapped her arms around him smiling at him.
"I'm so glad you came ,would you like to meet some of my friends?"she asked as she shivered slightly. She may have dried her dress and removed the cake pieces from her hair but internally she shook from her fear of Colton. She unwrapped herself from him before intertwining their hands like they had at the party. She turned her eyes to his face,her eyes brimming with new tears but not the tears from Colton's actions more tears of gratitude from him showing up for her.

"Colton is trying his hardest to ruin this day for me but now it's going to be okay,just promise you wont let him near me." Jessie asked realizing Filius had no clue what had happened before his arrival or why she was terrified of this boy.

"Come with me!" she insisted as she pulled Filius by the hand,"You have to meet my best friend Paras,hey you two have the same surname,do you know each other?"Jessie asked,realizing she had never thought of it before and she probably sounded like an idiot asking that question.

Damon looked sad and she would make her way over to him and introduce him to Joelle but first she wanted to make sure Filius was not too uncomfortable being here with all these students. She wished James had delivered her cake so that Filius would have someone to talk to but she understood Joie wanting to since she was so proud of the job she had done ordering the confection.

Filius was absent mindedly looking through the gathering of students that had made their way to the lake. He recognised a number of students that had been there, most of them from his shop but others from random occasions, noting both Jessie and the girl who he believed looked like Stella...was that her name...Filius was pretty sure it was.

He turned his head and all of a sudden there was a Jessie like figure hurtling towards him, her dress looked soaked and her make up had streamed across her face. The impact of her force hugging him nearly knocked him off his feet. He could feel the damp off her dress seep through onto his shirt. He was about to open his mouth to ask Jessie if she was having a good time in the water before the birthday girl spoke.

He had never minded Jessie's all over the place conversation, infact he quite admired it, kept him on his toes to try and keep up with the conversations they had. Though his primary question was who the hell Colton? before his mind wondered onto Paras. He had only encountered the boy once but was fully aware of his surname. "Of courlse i'll meet your frliends, afterl all, you met mine" he smiled, peering down at her piercing green eyes.

He broke the gaze between the two to stare around at the party goers "Of courlse but whats he done?" he asked, eyes scanning each individual. He felt his nerves and anxiety heighten, he had completely forgotten about the box in his pocket as Jessie interlaced their hands.

Jessie sighed as she looked at Filius,tears forming in her eyes once again as the thoughts of Colton filled her head.
"Earlier this summer Colton attacked me and some of my friends with bludgers as we stood on the pitch talking. Someone I don't know got hurt protecting us,then he showed up at the poker game and intimidated me. Worst of all he crashed my party today,bringing a cake that had explosives in it. To distract me while he waited for it to blow up all over me he tried to kiss me. I hate him,my first kiss was supposed to be with someone special,someone like y...umm I mean someone who cares about me and not just trying to hurt me. So,when I tried to rip his face off he pulled me in the lake,ruining my dress."Jessie said as a tear slid down her blushed cheeks. She turned her sad eyes up to Filius once again before wiping her eyes with her hand.

"He just keeps trying to hurt me and I am afraid of him."Jessie added as she pulled herself together somewhat,determined not to let Colton take anymore of her day away from her. She looked around and realized all these people were here for her because they cared about her even if that insensitive jerk wasn't. Still holding his hand,their fingers laced together like puzzle pieces that fit together she led him over to where Joelle and Paras still stood. Trying to erase from her mind the events earlier she put her smile back on her face.

When they reached her sister and Paras she introduced them by saying,"You already know Joelle,but Paras this is Filius." She said proudly as she ruffled Joelle's hair with her free hand. Jessie knew her sister wasn't a little girl anymore but old habits die hard and she would always be Jessie's little sister. Jessie looked around at her guests pointing out who everyone was and explaining how she knew them to Filius. He knew Stella from they day she herself had met Filius in the forest.

Amber was late. Make that very late. She had forgotten all about Jessie's birthday and had gone hiking on Mount Agrippa. To top it off, she had gotten lost and had broken her right wrist.

So now she had to run towards the Lake if she wanted to make it to Jessie's party. Her left hand held the gift, a beautiful and unique music box decorated with emeralds with gave out soothing music, while her right hand hung limply on her side. She had loosely tied a cloth on her wrist. She was not going to miss Jessie's party for anything in the world.

She panted as she stopped and said,"Sorry for being late." Her eyes widened as she took in the scene before her. There was pieces of cake scattered here and there and Colton and a girl with red hair was fighting in the lake.

She spotted Jessie and went towards her. She smiled apologitically and she pushed the gift into Jessie's hands and said,"Very Happy Birthday and terribly sorry for being so late."

Her smile vanished and eyes narrowed as she noticed that Jessie had been crying. "Wjat happened?" she asked. She looked back at the Lake and saw Colton again.

She looked back at Jessie and asked through gritted teeth,"It's because of him isnt it?" Without waiting for a reply she spun on her heeels and marched towards the Lake. On the Quidditch Pitc, Calla had been there to stop her. But today she would punch him and nobody would stop her.

She stopped at the edge of the Lake as she glared at him and her eyes turned to midnigt black from her usual green. She balled her right fist forgeting all about her pain and tried to punch him. Tried being the key word. She slipped and fell in the Lake.

And as if that was not enough, she fell on top of him. Oh joy!

Just as Jessie was about to talk to Amber she rushed away and right for the lake and Colton before Jessie could even open her mouth. Jessie's eyes followed Amber as she too ended up in the lake. This was a disaster,she normally threw such wonderful parties but had managed to mess up her own royally.

"Oh hell let her have a go at him,why should I stop her,he deserves it." Jessie said to no one in particular. Amber had been one of the girls on the pitch that day Colton attacked them with bludgers so besides being Jessie's friend she had her own axe to grind with him.

Jessie turned to Paras and asked," So how is America? are you staying out of trouble?". She smiled at him. Knowing Paras probably had no use for being there except for possibly quidditch.

"Can I get anyone anything to eat or drink?"Jessie asked politely.

Post by: Paras Pendragon on 04/15/2012 at 16:18
An answer, or more accurately part of an answer was within his grasp.  Someone had taken a shot at ruining Jessie's birthday, now the trick was to figure out whom.  Of course it would probably not be a mystery for long mostly as Jessie was rather expressive with her feelings on people, and he could eliminate most the individuals around.

Paras chuckled " A cannon ball later into the water would have done the same thing later. "  when Jessie mentioned making him all wet.  Not that he had planned on doing a cannon ball later, but he did not want Jessie worrying about him being wet.  When she excused herself he placed his hands in his pockets and walked to where the cake was.  Looking around he noticed a boy who seemed to be standing apart from some of the others and he waved towards the kid (Damon) in a friendly manner. 

After all, he had to start somewhere taking guesses amongst the new people.

Then he noticed Fiius Pendragon.  If he were making a list of people he hoped not to see he as sure the man would have ended up on it.  On last name alone, even if he hardly remembered the gentleman. 

Looking over towards Joelle who he had decided to go stand near her and some other he was rather unsure of things.  Paras said " Joelle, any clues on which one annoyed Jessie? "

Then he noticed Jessie coming towards him.  With a smile looked towards Filius and knew he was caught.  Not that he intended to react to the fact as he still could get back to America before he had to deal with any sort of punishment.  Paras looked at Filius with a nod and said " Nice to see you again. " even if he did not mean it at all. 

Filius was a Pendragon, and he would be happy if besides Iris he never saw one again.  Maybe there were a few others he liked, but Filius was one he simply did not know really.

An definite answer.  Paras said " She probably won't even need back-up." in response to Jessie commenting on Amber leaving.  Then he was being asked about America.  With a smile he said " Of course I'm staying out of trouble.  Actually enjoying the classes and plenty of books to read. "  Naturally he was rather sarcastic about it as to be honest he would have rathered been at the Hangout.

Damon noticed the boy who waved at him so Damon smiled and waved back at the boy then looked back toward the ground. He felt a bit lonely still not as much somebody noticed him. He looked at Asita at the lake and around at everywhere else. He noticed Jessie was talking to a lot of people and one of them was Mr. Pendragon from the wand shop.

Damon just sat being himself.

Asita had finally dried herself, and looked around, glaring slightly. She noticed there were a few newcomers, including Joelle and Amber herself.

Walking up to Joelle, she raised an eyebrow, "Have you heard what happened?" She asked, realising her cousin might not actually have realised what had happened. Asita bit her lip, looking around. "If not, do you want me to tell you? It's not pretty, what happened."

Claire had went back to the cabin to get some stuff she had forgotten, she had missed some of the commotion, but something surely had happened. She went back to get her wand, which she had forgotten again, and also a blanket. She walked back slowly, hearing a lot of commotion once she was near the party again.

She heard something about Colton kissing Jessie, but surely other things had happened since she was gone for a while. She looked around, she placed her blanket right on the edge of the boardwalk and sat on it, she didn't want to get her dress dirty.

It was nice and peaceful just looking at the water, which she kind of wanted after what she heard about the commotion. She looked into the pond trying to see if she see any creatures in there. I wonder if the fishes here would be afraid of humans or are they really evolved super fishes that are no long afraid of human! Big scary, evolved magic fishes like mermaids! Claire thought excitedly and smiled.

She had heard that there are mermaids in Hogwarts, but she haven't yet seen them before. I hope they are as nice as described in the fairytale stories! Claire thought thinking back to those fairytale she use to listen to as a little child.

Joelle looked at Paras before answering,"From the owls Jessie sent home a guy named Colton Brent has been picking on her all summer and she is afraid of him. I guess he attacked her and some of her friends as the stood unarmed on the pitch and then he scared her at the older kids poker party. From what I heard today he brought a cake with explosives in it and it blew up all over Jessie,then he pulled her in the lake against her will. I think that's him in the lake." Joelle said with a shrug of her shoulders as she pointed Colton out to Paras.

Joelle had noticed the boy that looked about her age sitting alone by the lake and was about to go talk to him when Jessie returned holding hands with Mr.Pendragon,she shook her head with affection realizing she didn't understand what had been happening in her older sister's life this summer.

Turning back to Jessie when she walked up Joelle asked her sister,"Are you alright Jessie?". Jessie still looked upset as she glanced around the party,granted she had stopped crying but she looked unsure.

Joelle decided she was going to walk up to the boy who sat alone and talk to him,normally she wouldn't have the nerve to but Jessie was surrounded by her friends and Joelle didn't know many of them. She liked talking to Asita and of course she knew Elsie and even Paras but the party was for Jessie and so far it sounded like it wasn't turning out as Jessie had dreamed it would so she excused herself and walked over to the boy(Damon).

"Mind if I sit here? I'm Joelle."she said quietly as her cheeks turned a slight red. Then she realized maybe he wanted to be alone and she was bothering him. Joie stood there motionless not sure what to do next.

Damon looked up and saw a girl standing there asking if she could sit. Damon's Cheeks turned a bright red."Umm... Of course, by the way i'm Damon." Damon felt very shy and didn't know what to say at all.

He twiddled his thumbs.

Things moved quickly at the hangout, and they had for as long as Elsie had been going there. Subjects changed at the drop of a hat, allegiances changed without notice, and relationships formed and shattered each time you batted an eye. Jessie's party was no exception to this phenomenon. Jo was there, told the harrowing tale of her Summer-so-far, and was gone in a flash off to brighten the day of some strange boy.

More party-goers arrived, including Amber who'd become Elsie's friend and another partner in crime towards the end of the last term at Hogwarts. And in a style all her own instantly launched into a renewed assault upon who she supposed was an unwelcome guest.

Not one to participate in wanton acts of violence Elsie lingered by the cake, mostly to watch people's reactions to her handiwork even if she could only take credit for the boring part beneath the icing. When Jessie attempted to regain her composure and assume the role of proper hostess Elsbeth was more than happy to comply. "Actually, is there any punch? Or has that boy gotten them all?" She was rather proud of her play on words, although she wondered if it wasn't too soon to make light of the situation or the seemingly perpetual assault on the unknown delinquent.

Jessie giggled slightly at Paras's joke about doing a cannon ball into the lake to achieve the same wet look that Jessie's hug had provided. She rubbed at the red marks left on her wrists from Colton's grasp when he pulled her into the lake. There would be bruises there by morning matching his exact finger prints just what she needed another reminder of him.

She looked at Paras before saying,"You look nice and really thank you for taking the chance you did to be here for me. I wish everyone here was welcome."She said with bitterness dripping from her voice as her eyes clouded over when she glanced towards the lake.

"Well,America may be all that wonderful since you seem so overly impressed but I sure miss you being here. It was a year ago we became friends that night in the kitchen."Jessie joked since she could tell Paras was not all that happy about being in America. If he had been at the Hangout all summer Colton wouldn't have been able to get to her a second time,let alone a third. Not that Jessie blamed Paras,it wasn't his fault. Jessie knew Paras would have been there if he could have. It was all Colton's fault,well and her big mouth as well. Damn her temper,but didn't she have a right to be angry?

Joelle seemed to have found someone to talk to and Jessie smiled as she had noticed her little sister coming out of her shell just a little bit. Before this Joelle would have been glued to Jessie's side and now she had friends of her own,Jessie was proud of her. Elsbeth had asked for punch and then made a joke about Colton getting all the "punches". It made Jessie smile before she directed her to the large bowl that still sat on the table.

Joelle sat on the grass next to Damon,pulling her tiny knees up to her chest and wrapping her arms around her bent legs,then she rested her chin on her forearms. Turning her head to the side to look at Damon,her straight blonde hair partially covered her face.

"Is this your first time here?" Joelle asked shyly before looking at the ground. She hoped she wasn't intruding on his space. She looked around at all the commotion and wished she had been allowed to stay at the Hangout for the summer. Yes it seemed like a lot of drama but it also seemed like fun. Being around other kids,activities and parties all seemed like fun to Joelle. She had to miss out on it all just because of that stupid family rule. Joelle sighed out loud as her frustration grew. She hadn't meant for anyone else to hear her sigh but she couldn't help it. How was she supposed to fit in once the term started if all these kids had spent all summer growing closer while she played tiddlywinks with the house elves?

Claire had decided that she wanted some deserts now, so she went where the cupcakes, cookies, and chocolate are placed. It then did she really noticed what happened here. Couldn't even give her a break on her birthday? What an irritating guy! Claire thought slightly angry now and let out an angry breath.

She took some cookies and a cupcake, the fresh fruits looked tasty too. The food had instantly got her in a good mood again. She took a bite out of her chocolate cupcake that she grabbed, it was so sweet and tasty that she almost feel her cheeks go red, if it was possible.

With the food in hand, she looked around to see if there was anyone not already in a conversation. Parties like this are about socializing and making new friends. She will do that, Summer Camp wouldn't be fun if she didn't met some new faces.

She had met a few new people during camp, but a party is the perfect time for meeting more new people to late decide rather you really like them or not.

Damon looked at Joelle with his practically bright red cheeks."Yes i'm going to be a first year." Damon saw that her hair was covering half of her face."Why cover your face?" Damon questioned trying not to be rude.

He looked around and saw everybody talking to eachother and all the comotion.

Joelle sighed when Damon asked her why she covered her face with her hair and wondered what she should tell him and decided to go with the truth.

"Umm mostly because I like to blend in with the background and my hair is always there to hide behind. I guess partly because I know I am not like Jessie and it just suits me this way,by the way Jessie is my sister,how do you know her?" Joelle asked trying to divert the conversation off of her. She was never comfortable talking about herself unless it was something she had read in a book.

"I'm going to be a second year,I am in Ravenclaw. What house do you hope to be in? How do you like the Hangout so far?"Joelle wondered trying not to be jealous that she would have to return home in just a few short hours.

In life, there were just certain things that needed a catalyst so that they would become an experience worth remembering. And in Colton's mind, he was that very much needed spark that this sweet sixteen party needed – who really wanted a quiet get-together with punch and balloons and small talk? Talk about boring. His presence should be welcomed with open arms... and this was the simple thought he had, selfish and arrogant, but Brent's weren't known for being humble or thoughtful figures of their community.

He shook his head like a dog would do, sending droplets splashing everywhere. Jessie was helped out and he didn't follow her, only remained in the water to squeeze the lake from his clothes before looking up to see a girl about to attack him. She ran at him, head first, so that he was struck with the image of a very enraged bull. There was something distinctly familiar about the scene and it hit him quick: that same girl (Amber was it?), same choice of attack. Colton shifted to the side to walk back a step, but the girl tripped herself up and belly flopped into the shallows, taking him with her.

Water, meet Colton again. Really regretful to meet you too.

He surfaced with his arms flying, coughing from the water that had rushed up his nostrils. There was something preventing him from getting up and he realized it was Amber's weight. Unapologetic, Colt pushed her off his chest so he could sit up, rising from the two feet of water, sheets of water passing down his cheeks and lips like he was getting rained on. Gritting his teeth, he slicked his hair to the side and out of his way before he addressed the annoying girl. “What's with you girls throwing yourselves at foreigners these days? Don't you have any shame?”

Damon giggled as Joelle changed the subject."Me and Jess met in the woods kinda a long story but an unforgettable one." Damon Smiled and hiis cheeks were a little less red than before.

"I hope i'm in Hufflepuff." Damon said with a wide smile on his face. In his head he was thinking,'Gryffindor wouldn't be bad either.' But that was only for one reason.

Joelle smiled and giggled slightly as she pushed her hair away from her face slightly. She wished she made friends as easily as Jessie did but she had made friends with Elsbeth on her own.

"Jessie is in Hufflepuff,in fact most of my family have either been in Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. I think I am one of the only Ravenclaws in our family's history. I think you would make a great Hufflepuff but if you end up in Ravenclaw at least you will have me for a friend,"Joelle said hopeful that she had made a new friend. Granted he was Jessie's friend first but then again everyone seemed to be Jessie's friend. To the young Black,Jessie seemed to have it all and she spent many days wishing she was more like Jessie,but Joie was who she was and maybe someday that would be good enough for her. Today was about Jessie and Joelle wantd to take some pictures to put together a scrap book to give Jessie as her present but she wasn't sure what she should capture. She looked at Damon shyly and asked,"I brought my camera and was going to take pictures for Jessie would you like to come with?"

Colton Brent.

It was a pity Mr. Filius Pendragon was around.  As if the older Pendragon had not been around he would probably not be looking at Colton after what Joelle said.  He probably would have introduced himself with a simple swing of a handshake.  Paras said quietly " Is your divination abilities predicting my first detention for next term too. " hoping only Joelle would hear the comment.

As Mr. Filius Pendragon would not always be around.

He just raised an eyebrow when Jessie mentioned Colton.  There was little he could do now so he figured he would continue rolling with things.  Paras said " Better food here too. "  Adding another thing he missed as missing his friends went unsaid.  Though when Elsbeth made her comment about punches he could not hold in a chuckle.

Looking over he noticed someone hanging about eating cake by themselves and smiled and waved towards the girl (Claire) trying to invite her over to where he was with some of the others.  He did not want to hog Jessie, but he knew unless other people came over he would.

Paras heard Colton and said with a shout " Got nothing to be ashamed of unlike yourself. "  He might not be able to toss a punch, but he could certainly toss a few taunts.

Damon smiled when Joelle moved her hair even if it was only a bit."I would love to take pictures." Damon said with a smile. Damon stood up and held out his hand."Would you like some help." Damon said politley.

Damon was't sure he had made a friend out of Joelle but he wanted to keep trying she seemed very nice.

Jessie instinctively tensed her body and started to tremble slightly as Pars shouted back at Colton. She didn't want him coming over to where she stood antagonizing her again. Although she knew Paras and Filius along with her other friends wouldn't let him get too close to her,her fear still took over.

When Paras made a comment about the food here being better than in America she smiled,"Oh this I made it all myself, see how talented I am? Can I get you anything?'she joked. Jessie herself could use another butterbeer, besides the cake Joelle brought was starting to look really good and Jessie thought it was about time to cut it and see how it tastes. Jessie knew James would make the cake taste good and look pretty as well.

Jessie looked around and aside from the commotion in the lake,everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and talking amongst themselves. Which made her smile and Joelle was making friends too.

Joelle put her tiny hand in Damon's when he offered to help her up. She noticed that even though he was younger than her,her hand still seemed small in comparison. She let him pull her to her feet. Once she was standing she brushed the grass off of her white shorts and got her camera out. The first picture she took was a surprise picture of Damon as he smiled at her.

"Let's go take a picture of the birthday girl,"Joelle suggested as she walked towards where Jessie stood with Paras and Filius. She put her camera up to her eye to plan the shot and before she took it she said,"Get closer together,one, two,three,' she counted down before yelling "smile" and took the picture. She smiled once she had finished and decided to move on and take a picture of the cake and other party guests.

She turned to Damon and smiled and asked him,"I know a few people here,do you want me to introduce you to any of them?"

"I'd love to meet some people." Damon said with a bright smile on his face.

Claire grabbed a few more cookies and cake, she then notice a guy waving at her. Claire waved back as if she knew him already, she walked over and grabbed a cookie from the plate and offered it in front of his face with a smile.

"It's really good!" Claire said with a laugh, "My name is Claire, by the way! I'm in a cabin with Jessie and a few other girls!" Claire said happily.

Out of nowhere, Claire shouted happy birthday at Jessie again just for good measure that today was all about her.

"What is your name? This party sure turned out to be something, huh?" Claire said to the boy, she could hear Colton shouting in the background.

Jessie smiled at Claire as she walked over to where she stood with some friends.

"Hi,Claire, let me introduce you to everyone. This is Filius,Paras and over there is my sister Joelle and Damon,everyone this is Claire." Jessie said as she introduced everyone to one of her new friends.

"Now how about we cut the cake so everyone can have some."Jessie suggested,trying to forget what had happened earlier. It was starting to get cooler and Jessie wanted everyone to enjoy some of the cake that her sister was so proud of. She had done a great job of making sure it was everything Jessie would want in a cake for this special day. She knew she would never forget it but she would take the good memories that would hopefully out weigh the bad and hopefully after today Colton would never approach her again. Yeah right, he enjoyed tormenting her too much and she had a feeling he wasn't done yet.

Jessie walked towards the refreshment table hoping everyone would follow her. As she looked around she realized how lucky she was to have such good friends and people who cared about her. That comforting thought brought a bright smile to her lips.

Amber gasped as water hit her face. Her eyes and mouth closed tightly as she failed her arms trying to move.

She felt a force push her as she felt herself fall in the water again. She struggled as she tried to stand up. She was somehow able to stand up and wiped her eyes with her hand trying to clear her vision.

Her hands shook with anger as she glared at Colton. How dare he say that she was throwing herself at him? As if she would throw herself at someone as low as him.

"You don't need to worry. I rather date the Giant Squid than throw myself at someone as low as you. And you deserved it to try and spoil Jessie's party. Why dont you leave her alone?"

Her eyes turned dark red as she took deep breaths trying to calm herself down. But that was harder than it looked. He looked unguarded that Amber couldn't resist. This time she would get him. She raised her right hand and hit him hard on the face.

Maybe a teeth ot two could break.

"Nice to meet everyone!" Claire said looking at the people Jessie just introduced her to, the boy who waved at her was Paras.

"So you're Jessie's sister!" Claire said looking at Joelle, "You guys do have some family resemblance, I can see it!" Claire said looking at both sisters.

Claire on the other hand looked nothing like her brother, her brother was really cute and would probably mature into a good looking guy too. Claire just look like her mother, or at least most prominently were her mother's Japanese features. Her brother has a good mix of both parents, which was what a mix is suppose to look like.

When Jessie mentioned cutting the cake, Claire got really excited. "Yes! Cake! Hoooray! Let's cut the cake!" Claire said clapping her hands and jumping like a little girl getting candy for the first time.

Claire followed Jessie in excitement, and couldn't stop grinning now. Jessie will probably open the gifts after, and she was sure that Jessie would like her's. Every girls need a plushie to keep them company, Claire was sure that Jessie would love it. It's like boys and toy cars, you just can't go wrong with it.

As Jessie had taken his hand to introduce her friend, Filius couldnt help but notice the commotion that had been surrounding the party. Granted, it certainly as formal as that at the Muffin Man though he found it oddly amusing that he recognised more faces here than he had at that particular party. Amoung those faces were Jessies younger sister and a boy in which he had not anticipated ever seeing again, though in his heart he could not entirely rule out the possibility.

He stared at the boy silently for a couple of seconds, almost gazing through Paras. With a slight nod of the head Filius spoke softly "Parlas" the words almost being choked out of his throat. Sharing the boys surname had made no impact upon his opinion of the boy, there seemed something sinister about him. However, a conflict of interest arose upon watching how Jessie spoke to him, more than just an acquaintance but more so as a trusted friend. The idea made Filius uncomfortable, shifting his weight from left to right.

Jessie broke the link between thier hands to talk to another girl. Filius didn't mind, the awkward silence between the two Pendragons had made it a little bit more awkward thought fortunately Jessie hadn't departed from Filius' side too far nor for too long. Filius had poked his hands in his hands, fiddling with the box that contained Jessies present anxiously. He had spent this time looking around at the crowd, he was pretty sure he had now identified this Colton boy, eyes studying him with daggers.

Jessie came back, introducing a girl named Claire to the particular group around Filius. Filius raised two fingers upto his head and saluted the girl whilst bowing to her "Lovely to meet you Claire" he said in his ever improving english(ish) accent. "Now how about we cut the cake so everyone can have some." said Jessie. Filius looked over at Jessie as she slowly walked over to the refreshments table. Without taking any notice of anyone else he persued her, placing his hands upon her shoulders, her beautiful long blonde hair resting against his chest. Filius whispered into her ear. "Arle you ok m'dear? I believe i prlesent forl you" he spoke, a smile forming. Of all days in which she could be upset, today will not be one whilst Filius is here.

Jessie walked towards the refreshment table hoping everyone would follow her. As she looked around she realized how lucky she was to have such good friends and people who cared about her. That comforting thought brought a bright smile to her lips.

Jessie placed her hands on top of Filius's hand as they rested on her shoulders, she leaned back against him for support or maybe just because she wanted to be closer to him. When he whispered in her ear her heart raced as her pulse quickened. A smile on her face and the brightness returning to her green eyes,her fear of Colton momentarily forgotten as she felt safe.

"I'm alright now,but he scares me and I don't want him near me."Jessie admitted.

She turned around to face Filius when he mentioned having a present for her and she looked into his eyes,"You coming to my party was what I wished for and you're here."She said in a breathy voice but she was being sincere. She knew how he must have felt coming but he knew it meant a lot to her and he did it for her and that was all that mattered to her now. That alone made her eyes and face glow with happiness. Although she was curious as to what he had gotten her,so she closed her eyes and cupped her hands in front of her like a child awaiting a surprise, smiling and said,"Okay I'm ready.." a slight giggle escaping her lips.

All the rest of her guests and all the activity seemed to disappear for a moment as she got lost in the time she was spending with Filius. It may not last for she knew she had many guests who wanted her attention but for this moment in time her undivided attention was all Filius's.

"Lovely to meet you Claire"

Claire was amused by Filius' reply, she smiled at salute back to him. "Yes sir! It's lovely to meet you as well sir!" Claire somewhat loudly as you would in the army to someone higher up the ranks than you. Claire let out a silly smile to let him know that she was just poking fun.

"I'm alright now,but he scares me and I don't want him near me."

"Oh, don't even worry about it, he won't come near you with us here! We will make sure he doesn't, he's done enough at this party." Claire said confidently and held the thumbs up to Jessie.

He admired Claires spirit, he really did as she comforted her friend. Filius had waited until she left to unveil the box from within his trousers. The confusion around the party was put to the back of his mind as he place the tiny crimson box into Jessie's hands. "You can open yourl eyes now m'dearl" he said softly, a smile broadening across his face.

Soon the White Gold locket in the shape of a heart would be unveiled, the carvings etched by Filius himself, on the front was a badger standing on two legs carrying a quidditch broom. Underneath the badger was a scroll that held her name upon it. On the other side was a Welsh Green Dragon that looked like it was in flight. Filius had added an ivy finish to the outline of the dragon and also included the scroll beneath in which his name was upon the scroll. Inside the locket on the right hand side was the photo which had been shrunk to contain the picture of the two of them laughing, the photo moving and Filius almost falling out of sight in the photo with thier laugheter induced staggering. On the opposite side of the locket was a small message with the letters seemingly floating on the white gold.

Jessie
Keep smiling
Keep believing
Keep being you
Forever
Filius

With his heart pounding, the nerves started to build over whether or not she would like the locket. He felt sweat build up on his brow and he watched Jessie open her eyes.

Jessie opened her eyes as Filius placed a little red box in her hands,she smiled up at him before opening it. She stared in disbelief at the beautiful locket inside the box. As she looked closely at the locket the detail struck her that he had gone to all that trouble for her and her eyes filled with tears once again but not the tears caused by Colton,tears that showed how touched and happy she was. She opened it up and saw the engraving and the picture of her and Filius together and it filled her with emotion. She was at a loss for words and that was unusual for Jessie. She turned her green eyes to him and said,"It's beautiful,thank you! I love it. will you put it on for me?"she asked as she handed him the locket and turned with her back against his chest. She lifted her blonde curls off her neck for him to close it in the back.

She wondered if he knew how much the necklace meant to her or even how much he meant to her.She knew she would never take the locket off,just as she never took her ring from her father off. She knew she would never forget this birthday and it wasn't that she would remember it because of all the trouble she would remember it because of Filius.

Colton Brent couldn't ruin this day anymore even if he tried,although she still didn't want him there. Jessie was confident her problems with him would be over one way or another. All Jessie wanted to do was stay with Filius,but there was a cake to cut. she looked up at Filius and asked,"Will you help me cut the cake?".

Post by: Filius Pendragon on 05/03/2012 at 23:47
"It's beautiful,thank you! I love it. will you put it on for me?" Jessies response filled his heart with both feelings towards her as well as relief. Romantic gestures was never Filius's fortay, then again any form of emotional attachment to females  wasn't either. She watched as Jessie turned around, lifting up her hair and exposing the back of her neck. He placed the locket in one hand and wrapped his arms around Jessie, holding the locket out infront of her before fixing the white gold chain around her neck, the locket neatly resting on her chest.

All the time he was putting the locket on her, Filius came to the realisation if anything was to happen between the two, today would have to be the day he told her how he truely felt. The words spun around in his head, to such an extent that at any moment he felt that they would just erupt out of him in a flood of emotion. Filius knew too well that he they had come too far now, what with her attending the party at the Muffin Mann and him being here. He leaned into her ear. "Happy birthday..Jessie"

He watched as Jessie turn around, he only realised that he should've finished the front of the locket with green as well, to match her dazzling eyes that looked like two gems themselves. "Will you help me cut the cake?" she asked, staring up at him. A smile beamed across his face as he extended his arms to reel her in to hug her "Of courlse i will m'dear".

Soon Filius....soon.

Post by: Jessie Pendragon on 05/04/2012 at 00:32
After Filius closed the locket around her neck Jessie let her hair fall back down freely. Before turning around she grabbed the locket in her hand and closed her hand around it. She held on tight, half afraid she would wake up and find it had all been a dream. She let it fall so at sat on her chest,next to her heart which had been stolen by Filius months ago.

Before Jessie turned around he was whispering in her ear,wishing her a happy birthday. She wanted to stay like that forever and never let anything pull them apart,but she was still unsure of his feelings for her. She knew how she felt about him but would she tell him,what if he rejected her,what if he didn't love her back? These questions floated around in her mind as she tried to push them away and just enjoy the moment. She was with him now and that was what had mattered,she could deal with the future later.

When she turned around he was pulling her closer and wrapping his arms around her. She closed her eyes and let him hold her. In his arms nothing else mattered and no place felt more right. Suddenly cutting the cake seemed like it didn't matter if it meant she would have to give up time wrapped in his arms. She smiled and knew no matter what he had made this her best birthday ever.

She looked up at him and with her green eyes almost glowing and said,"Thank you for coming and for the locket and for making my birthday special. It wouldn't have been right if you weren't here to share it with me."

Filius looked down at her a let out a soft chuckle "Don't be silly m'dear, i wouldn't miss this forl the world" he said before placing a firm kiss on her forehead. "I'm glad that you like yourl locket but i'll be honest with you, that isn't yourl only gift frlom me today. That i shall rleveal laterl but i think it's about time to get this parlty back on trlacks" he said, looking around at the dispersed groups of students by the lake.

Jessie practically glowed with happiness and then he kissed her forehead as he had done at James's party. She stood there motionless trying to commit every last detail to memory so she would have it to look back on later.

She wondered what other gift he had for her and she was curious,so she turned her best puppy eyes and pouty face to him and said,"Please tell me now?". Hoping he couldn't resist her best weapon. It usually worked and it was all she had at her disposal at the moment

She looked around at her guest and figured it was time to have fun despite Colton's appearance there. Although there would be no lighting of any candles she had enough of that for one day. Now it was time to round everyone up and have cake.
