You know I have never been on who liked to get into these sort of things and prefered to be a 'wallflower' when I was still a student.."] Seraphina said softly as hazel eyes came up from her clasped hands and the black skirt that she wore. She had been listening to Professor Dumbledore explaining his concerns and how he wanted her to act as a spy in a sense. But even so, the young woman of nineteen didn't understand. Couldn't understand. [b "Seraphina, I understand your concerns in my asking this of you. But it is because of your past and how many thing of you that you are the perfect choice for this. I promise that there will be no harm done to you and your family."] The old man said as he sat back in his chair, sparkling blue eyes almost hidden by half moon spectacles said gently as he seemed to be trying to reassure the young woman. God she sometimes hated the man. He had been both her favourite professor and her least favourite all because he just had that air about him that made you want to trust him and even do as he said. Plus everything he had told her about a new evil coming into play had been enough to draw her in. Sera had always wanted to help others and in a big way, so this was a chance to do it. [#f4462f "And I have your word that this is only for this year? No harm comes to me or anyone I care about?"] The blonde asked as she now kept an almost tired hazel-eyed gaze upon Professor Dumbledore as she had only had three hours of sleep the night before because her anxiety had decided to act up. [b "Yes, you have my word. Now you best be heading off to the feast. The other professors and I will be along shortly."] Dumbledore said as he waved Sera off and against sat back in his chair. A sigh slipped from soft rosy pink lips as she pushed her own chair back and clicked to the cat who had been watching the owls flying from the windowsill. It was when Simba, well as she liked to call him, Mouse had hopped onto her shoulder and curled up across them did the young woman leave the office and make her way down spiral stairs. As soon as she was off the the stairs, she began her way down the long familiar hallways and ket out a squeak as she bumped into someone apparently going the same way as she was. [#f4462f "I'm so sorry....I wasn't watching where I was going.."] Which was true as she was still SO very distracted by thoughts of the meeting she had just had with the Headmaster. [#f4462f "I...are you making your way to the feast too? Maybe we could go together?"] Why did she have to be so awkward? It was only her cat's soft purring and nuzzling that was keeping her semi-calm as she waited to see what would happen next. ~~~☆☆☆~~~☆☆☆~~ [pic https://as2.ftcdn.net/v2/jpg/01/36/60/95/1000_F_136609573_uvQhuMmeZ0wNhnpvZjSL1kF3PP7WHhN2.jpg] Piercing blue gaze was locked upon his mother and father as both sat across the long wooden table from him. It was their annual before the start of term meal and Alfred was not at all pleased. For they had JUST told him that after this school year he was going to be married. APPARENTLY the marriage had been arranged for the last year or two and they were just telling him now. Some bullocks about knowing how defiant he could be and how they feared he would try and sabotage the whole thing if he had known. Which to be fair, the young man of seventeen would have as he believed arranged marraiges to be a thing from "the dark ages" and that people SHOULD be allowed to choose their own partners. "Alfred, do not give us those looks! It is something that we were asked to arrange for our 'Lord' and so we were more than happy. And you should be happy to serve as well. From what we were told she is a nice girl and should do well as a wife. Very complacent as well and can be trained." Of course one Reginald Draxler would say such a thing. He had come from one of the ancient families and so all this arranged marriage stuff was as he would say "a part of life". [b "I don't bloody well care! I am not you nor mum. And I would prefer not to get involved in your 'Lord's' affairs. It is NOT who I am and I wish you would bloody well stop."] The seventeen year old all but growled at his mother and father, hand slamming down on the table. The bang was not necessarry and he knew it, but Alfred didn't give a damn and was trying to get his point across that he did NOT want to be married to some girl that he may or may not be going to school with OR even like all because it was "The Dark Lord's" wishes. His mother was the next to speak. She was kinder and more gentle than was her husband, but Cecily Draxler had also come from an ancient family and shared a lot the same views. Though she was not as blunt about it. Or rather the woman normally wasn't. "We understand that you are not happy about this. But it really would be the best thing for us as a family, darling. You have to learn that you cannot only think of yourself and what is best but need to do what is best for family." Came gentle worda as she tried to reason with her son who was still very much fuming. Drax had a soft spot for his mother. The boy always had. But he could NOT for the life of him understand why she was on his farher's side and trying to convince him that this marriage thing was a good idea or "best for the family". The woman had always told him she wanted him to live his life and be happy. So what was this rubbish she was feeding him now? Was it scripted as she was usually compliant with his father's wish as that was the old way? Honestly, he had heard all he needed and was NOT in the mood to go back and forth with his parents on the matter anymore. Truth was, Alfred was already TRYING to figure out a way around the arrangement. Maybe he could find the girl whom he was supposed to marry and convince her it was a terrible idea and to help him go against their parents wishes. So without any other words, the boy all but shoved his chair back from the table, made his way up the stairs, and once in his room slammed the door behind him just to make clear he this was not over and he had every intent to defy their wishes. In the morning, Alfred's mood still had not improved from the night before. All through breakfast he had not spoken a word to his mother or father and he even spent most of his time before going to King's Cross in his room and making sure again and again he had everything he would need for the school year. He did NOT want to be writing home unless he absolutely needed to. By ten-thirty in the morning, the boy was apparating with his parents to an alleyway just across from the train station and walking in with them as they had found a trolly outside that he could put his trunk and puppy's cage on as he kept Axel, the little husky in his arms. It kept the pup close and it was also a way to keep Alfred calm and to seem like nothing was the matter. It was only when past the barrier and on the platform for the Hogwarts Express did the boy break his silence to his parents. [b "See you over the holiday...love you both.."] The words were soft as he spoke them and gave his parents the quickest of hugs before he took his trunk and Axel on the train and found a compartment with only one other person inside. [b "Er....mind it I sit with you? Everywhere else seems claimed.."] Came quiet and almost awkward words as it was a girl whom he knew to be a Hufflepuff and maybe a year or so younger than he was.
[pic https://i.pinimg.com/originals/93/ce/61/93ce61c6e56048f79aef84ec47367351.jpg] Awkward, that was DEFINITELY the only way that Seraphina could describe her encounter with the young man she had quite literally bumped into. From just those first few moments, the young woman could tell that he seemed to very cold, almost like ice and yet, yet he seemed to be composed as well. Because of the mix of ice and composure that the male displayed, in the young woman's mind it was almost like he happened to be hiding something. But those thoughts were quickly pushed from her mind as he had answered her questions that she had asked. The questions that she had almost forgotten she had asked. [#f4462f "I would assume you know these halls just as well as I do...I mean you wouldn't have chosen this path if not..."] Her words were soft and JUST barely uttered before the platinum blonde male, a new professor from what she guessed began on his way again. For just a moment, Sera did allow herself to stay where she had been standing and just stare after him. It was a shame he seemed so closed off. He was attractive to say the least and being close to her age (or rather she assumed that he was) it would have been nice to have a friend. Well...someone she could maybe talk to who would understand her. And those thoughts right there had the professor of nineteen flinch. Given her task, the young woman had no time for friends...or rather it was better not to try and make them. If she did, then she would be putting more people in danger. With a shake of her head, the blonde began to rush after the male. [#f4462f "By the way... I'm Seraphina.. Well I prefer to be called Sera..."] She said as she managed to fall into step beside the him. It couldn't hurt to introduce herself, right? Or that was what she told herself. ~~~☆☆☆~~~☆☆☆~~ [pic https://as2.ftcdn.net/v2/jpg/01/36/60/95/1000_F_136609573_uvQhuMmeZ0wNhnpvZjSL1kF3PP7WHhN2.jpg] A hand had absently been petting his pup when he heard the soft and awkward words of the girl whom seemed to find her way to his lonely compartment. For a moment, Alfred found that for lack of better words, cat had somehow "gotten ahold of his tongue" and he struggled to speak (which was so unlike him). She was a pretty little thing, even he could not deny that as his eyes seemed to trail over the girl who had spoken to him. [b "You might as well join me. Usually others have a hard time when they want to sit with me. Supposedly I give off an air of intimidation. Or that's what they claim. So having a companion this year's train ride would be nice."] The words slipped easily from thin pink lips and sounded much more confident than the young man felt. But it was what it was and he needed something or rather someone that could possibly make him forgot all that he had been told the night before. And after his spoken words, Alfred did take piercing blue gaze from the girl and allowed it to fall to the window oncd again which was looking into the platform. [b "Still quite a few others just getting here. You think more would take to heart when the train leaves rather than to have to rush in the last moments just to get a seat and not miss it."] The boy of seventeen glanced to Fallon and he slowly gave a motion of his hand as if to invite her closer to the window so that she may get a look as well and see for herself what he was talking about. To the male, things seemed a bit awkward and he could very easily assume responsibility for that fact. All the Draxler boy could do was hope a rhythm would be found and that the train ride would not be an awkward one the whole way through. And if it was, well than it would be his fault.
