PostSubject: Meeting someone new { Max }   Sun Jan 08, 2017 1:22 pm

Primrose let out a soft sigh as she walked down the stairs from the Girl's dorm, her book bag slung over her shoulder. Her first week at Hogwarts was going well so far and no-one had actually bothered her about anything. With her summer gone, Primrose had been glad to come to Hogwarts due to the fact that her orphanage had been going from some financial troubles and she had been forced to actually go through the process of getting adopted though she had been quick to actually dissuade her potential parents by saying that she was going to be away for nine months out of the whole twelve at a boarding school and the couldn't pull her out from it; that certainly made them second guess their choice of adopting her.

Letting out another sigh, the blond stepped out of the tower and made her way down the corridor, her limp prominent as she walked through the slightly darkened corridor. The Gryffindor Common Room was a bit too loud for her liking, as it usually was on the weekends, and she wanted some quiet to get her thoughts in order and to actually finish off the rest of her homework.

Max had been trying to find Elyah. Which was normally quite easy, because Freddo had a way of just being able to find the witch. However, Freddo was not in a helpful mood today, and had led Max on a wild goose chase - to find a mouse. After berating the stupid cat for being a waste of time, Max had tried to find the Hufflepuff Common Room - he always got it confused with the kitchen, to little success.

After an hour of gorging himself on cake (Max's attention had been easily swayed by the elves), Max had began his ascent to the Common Room. He needed to go get his book so that he could go to see Buckle, his Bowtruckle.

By the time he'd gotten to the Seventh Floor, Freddo was weaving in and out of Max's legs as he walked, purring incessantly because he wanted attention. Max was being moody with him, though, and not taking any notice of the cat. Well... sort of...

"I'm not petting you, Freddo. You know how I wanted to find Elyah, and you just wouldn't help. It's rude, you know. And if you think you're getting one of your treats, you can think again. Because you're not." Max told the cat as they rounded the corner. The corridor was almost empty, save for one witch who... was limping. Max's features turned to something of a frown of confusion as he watched the witch. He didn't mean to stare, but her walk was not right.

"Hey, are you okay? You're not walking very well..." Max said to the witch - a witch he assumed to be in his house. Truth be told, Max was not very observant when it came to people. Animals he was fantastic with, but not people. "I can help you out, if you need to get somewhere. That looks very painful... Do you need to go to the Hospital Wing? Nurse Mayer should be able to help... I think... I've never seen her do any fixing of people, but it is her job!" Max spouted, his smile never faltering, because he saw nothing wrong with what he was saying.

Just trying to help.

Rubbing her forehead, Primrose stopped for a few seconds to rub at her throbbing knee, the coldness of the castle making the pain a little bit more prominent but not enough to actually send her to the Hospital Wing. When she had first come to the Wizarding World she had went to St Mungo's to see if they could do something about her knee but they had told her that due to the bones being re-set and grown in the way they had over the past few years they couldn't do anything.

It irked her but she understood that it would be impossible to actually do anything about it. Her bones would forever be brittle and she would forever walk with a limp in her knee. Though that certainly didn't stop her from doing any sort of strenuous or adventures activity like Quidditch or rock climbing.

Hearing soft meows coming from down the corridor and then the footsteps of someone, Primrose cursed her luck. Just great; why did someone have to invade on her free time. A twitch formed when she heard the question and she held back the urge to just let loose on the boy. She knew he didn't mean it in a bad way as he didn't know what happened so she tried hard to hold back the urge of hitting him for the question.

"I'm fine," Primrose said with a smile upon her pink lips. "It doesn't actually hurt so I don't need the hospital wing." She knew that the boy didn't mean anything bad so she tried to push her irritation to the back of her head. She needed to keep calm about this; it wouldn't do for her to get detention this soon in the year after all. "I just wanted to get away from the bustle in the Gryffindor Common Room."

As the witch smiled at him, Max's smile grew a little. Smiling had that affect on most people, he was sure. But Max was a very happy-go-lucky kind of boy. Not to mention the girl before him was kinda pretty. Not that Max was actively interested in girls, because he wasn't, but his sub-conscious mind knew how to work in front of girls.

Even if her explanation was rather confusing for him to comprehend. How could someone be limping but not in pain..?

"If you're sure..." Max replied, slight uncertainty in his tone. "But, if you change your mind, I can help. I don't mind!" He insisted, because he wasn't sure the girl was being truthful. Not that he thought she was lying...

"Oh, is it busy again? I hate it when it gets busy. Freddo isn't very fond of the business of the common room, which means he gets more clingy than normal." Max explained, motioning to his cat that had decided to sit at his ankles. Sometimes Max wondered if his cat had the mind of a dog. He was weird. "Where are you heading? Or are you sneaking off somewhere? Though... I think that's the older girls... They don't appreciate it when you ask, they seem to get super defensive. I don't know why, you know?" Max continued, giving a small shrug.

"I was personally going to get my Care of Magical Creatures book and notebook so that I could go and study the Bowtruckles I found. Do you like animals?" Max asked, which was going to be make or break of whether he was going to like the witch before him.

The smile from the boy certainly made butterflies flutter in her stomach but she took no notice of them and instead just widened her smile; there was no denying the fact that smiles were addictive and could make anyone reply with a smile. She remembered Matilda always telling her that smiles would just make other people smile as well. It had been something that she hadn't actually believed in until now.

"Thank you." Was all she said towards his words, actually feeling a little bit guilty about suspecting him of actually trying to bully her; she had bad memories though so no-one could actually blame her about that. Not many people knew of her past at the orphanage after all and she would make sure that only a handful of people knew.

"Mmm.." She nodded her head and crouched down, holding her hand out towards the cat by the boys' legs, a grin on her lips. "Hello Freddo, it's nice to meet you. I'm Prim." She introduced herself to the cat though the introduction was also aimed at the boy and she made sure to show him that by looking at him through her fringe before focusing on the cat. "I'm just trying to find some place away from the business of our common room." She replied to his question before soft giggles burst from her lips at his slight fumbling.

"They're probably meeting up with their boyfriends and they don't want anyone to know." Primrose doubted that she would actually understand why until she got a boy of her own; not that she was actually thinking about it for now.

"I love animals." The blond replied to his question. "No matter what sort of animal it is I love them." She hummed as she waited to see if Froddo would approach her so she could stroke his fur.

As the girl bent down and gave Freddo attention, he responded almost immediately, moving to her hand and purring loudly. Spite, Max was sure, was something Freddo loved. And the cat made sure to look back at Max every few moments as if to say 'this human likes me!'

The introduction pulled Max's attention away from Freddo and back to Prim. He screwed his face up in a manner that said he'd just realised how rude he'd been, before brushing a hand against the back of his neck. Slightly embarrassed, Max gave a small laugh. "Sorry, I always forget to introduce myself. It seems rather inconsequential to start with. I'm Maximillian. But most people just call me Max because it's easier. I don't mind, though, which one you use." He introduced himself, thinking about offering his hand for a moment, before deciding that was an adult thing to do, and, well, Prim was a girl!

The explanation of why the girls wouldn't tell him where they were going didn't really help Max. If they were going to see their boyfriends, why should it be a secret? Merlin knew that he would probably be happy about that and want people to know he was going to see the person he liked a lot. "Some girls are strange..." Max decided to settle on, letting out a small chuckle.

"You do? Awesome!" Max replied enthusiastically. "Do you have any pets of your own? Most people seem to have an owl. Some cats, I've seen very few toads. They're a little difficult I suppose. And slimy... I think a rat would have been cool. But I got Freddo, the little fluff ball!" Max explained, getting an indignant hiss from his cat who continued to steal the affection from Prim. "Do you have a favourite magical animal? Or do you prefer Muggle animals?" Max added, evidently very keen to know all the answers to his questions.

"My full name is Primrose but I prefer Prim." Prim blushed in embarrassment as she realised she had actually given the shorter version of her name to the boy, Max. Blinking her eyes at Froddo the blond-haired female giggled and continued her petting of the cat, rubbing beneath his chin, over his back and under his belly. She had always wanted a cat but the Matron at her orphanage had forbidden it so she had settled for an owl however the moment she turned sixteen, in two years time, Prim would be able to leave the orphanage as long as she could prove she was able to take care of herself.

"It's nice to meet you Max." She replied in kind with a small smile upon her lips. "Believe me you aren't the only one who forgets to introduce themselves. I just tend to go without introducing until someone asks me for a name." Which, Primrose thought, was a bit rude but well, what did they want her to do about it? It's how she was.

She just laughed at his words of girls being strange before, with a small teasing grin on her lips, she said in a slightly haughty tone. "You boys are just as strange you know." The teasing tone in her voice said that she didn't mean anything bad by it.

Blinking her eyes at the onslaught of questions, she had to take a few moments to actually figure to what he had asked before she answered his questions one by one. "I've got a snowy owl which I got when I was eleven. I agree, toads are very slimy and I would never touch one willingly but they are a cool animal. Rats I certainly put a stop to, I'm not too much of a fan. Freddo is a beautiful cat and very loyal, you should treasure him." The girl said with a small laugh as she continued her petting. "My favorite would have to be a Hippogriff." She hummed softly. "And you? Apart from this beautiful creature here," The girl said with exaggeration and a mock bow towards the cat. "Do you have any other animals? Any favorites?"

"Primrose," Max echoed, nodding to show he'd taken it on board. It was a nice name, and 'Prim' now made more sense. Max liked to find other people with shortened names, because then he wasn't the only one with an overly long name from parents who were trying to create a record for longest names. "I prefer Prim, too." Max added with a smile. "Primrose sounds very posh - not that you're not posh, I don't know that. But... Prim makes you sound more approachable." Max explained, hoping that made sense. He wasn't being mean, just saying exactly what he thought.

When the girl said she struggled with remembering introductions, Max smiled. "Well, it seems we have a number of things in common, then!"

"Oh, I know we're strange. The other day, my room mate, Tom, asked me if I had a copy of PlayWitch. I mean, who reads those magazines? It's so weird!" Max explained, not being able to keep the filter. Honestly, the boy didn't know what was in the magazines, because he'd never seen one. But he had an idea that it wasn't a very nice magazine. "And, then Callum, another roommate, was going on about the different ways you'd be able to stick a Slytherin to the Potions classroom roof without Professor Balan noticing. I don't understand them sometimes..."

"What did you call your owl? May I meet him, or her, some time? That'd be pretty cool, snowy owls are beautiful!" Max replied, very glad to have met someone who owned one. "Oh, the feel of toads isn't as weird as you might think. You get used to it! It's the hopping that I can't get my head around, it's rather... unusual. Rats are misunderstood. You should... you know, try again with them. They're quite nice once you get to know them.

"Freddo? He's an ass! He was supposed to help me find my friend, Elyah, earlier. But he decided to take me on a tour of the castle and find a mouse." Max explained, shaking his head. "He's good at finding Elyah, I don't know why. Just one of those things." He added, because it would probably be weird to anyone who didn't fully understand. "Hippogriffs are awesome! But, my favourite would probably be a Niffler. I'd love to have a Niffler! But, they're not easy to keep as pets, for obvious reasons. I could try, though..."

Max gave a small pause at the question of other pets. Hesitating. "Well... I don't know if a Bowtruckle that lives in the Forest counts as a pet. But, I've befriended a Bowtruckle, his name is Buckle. I try to go and see him every day, because Bowtruckles are the cutest! I'm hoping that I can get more pets, but my parents don't think I'm responsible enough. You see, I kept losing my ties last year, I don't know how, or where, so they said if I can't look after an inanimate object, how can I look after a creature? But, they just don't understand!" Max explained with exasperation. Anyone who knew Max well enough, knew that animals were of the utmost importance to him, and that he'd never neglect them.

"I know that Primrose sounds posh, it's why I rarely tell people my full name." Prim took Freddo in her arms and stood up, still stroking the purring cat and giggling softly as she nuzzled her nose against' his fur. The cat was a cute one and she wished she could have one. "And I prefer Prim myself, it's... easier to say for most people." And she just loved her own just because.

"I say introductions are overrated if you want to know someone you should try and find the stuff out for yourself." She giggled softly. "It makes it more interesting that's for sure."

She blinked her eyes at Max before a furious blush overtook her cheeks at the words PlayWitch. She knew perfectly well what that magazine was as the boys in the upper years didn't hide it that they were reading them. It was the magical equivalent of the muggle PlayBoy magazine.

"Yes... Well..." She cleared her throat, her cheeks burning with embarrassment. How could Max say those things without actually being embarrassed she had no idea. "Everyone is weird. Let's leave it at that." She wasn't going into that sort of talk in the middle of an empty corridor where anyone could stumble upon them.

"Her name's Melinda!" Prim beamed at the mention of her owl; she had been with her ever since she had first stepped foot into the Magical World and she doubted she would let her owl go anytime. "She's just beautiful." She hummed softly before shaking her head. "Nope, I am not touching a rat. I don't mind watching them but actually touching them is a no-no for me. The one rat I had been introduced to had tried biting off my finger once so yeah.." She shrugged her shoulders.

"Did you give him any incitive to take you to this Elyah?" Prim arched a brow with an amused smirk on her lips as she jutted one hip out. "I mean if cat's smell a mouse then, of course, they would run after it. You should know that." She teased her fellow Gryffindor.

Primrose blinked her eyes before nodding her head at his obvious worry. "Anything that you visit or love with all your heart is a pet. It doesn't matter where it lives." She said with a soft smile upon her lips. "It doesn't have to be an animal you own personally to count as a pet you know." She snuggled Froddo close to her chest. "I don't think many parents understand their children. Don't worry, it's not just yours."

Not like she could talk, she had no parents of her own just an orphanage Matron and a pair of twins who had left the orphanage two years ago though they do come visit her from time to time.

"People say the same about Maximillian." Max replied, hoping to make Prim feel better. "Though, mostly I'm only Maximillian when I'm in trouble... which is more often than I mean." He added, laughing softly because his parents just didn't understand him.

As Prim went bright red, Max felt like he needed to find out what the magazine was. Maybe not right now, though. But Max was more than sure that Prim knew what this magazine was. He really wanted to ask, but her flushed cheeks made him question the need to. "Agreed." Max replied softly, looking away from the witch for a few moments so that she might stop blushing.

Girls were definitely weird.

"Melinda..?" Max weighed the name up. He'd never heard that kind of name for a pet. But he liked it. "Sounds awesome, I can't wait to meet her! And, fine, fine, just watch. But maybe one day you'll reconsider." He compromised with a small, hopeful smile. Rats really weren't that bad, in comparison to a lot of animals in the world.

"Well..." Max opened his mouth to explain, then sheepishly closed it. Rubbing the back of his neck, he looked to his fluffball of a cat and sighed. "No, I didn't. But, you see, normally he just finds her. But, today he didn't want to. I didn't think of that. That was stupid of me..." He explained, feeling his cheeks growing much warmer at the admission of not doing the blatantly obvious thing in this situation. "I will note it for next time, though. Thanks!"

The words of the definition of a pet made Max nod. "I like that!" He admitted, nodding along. "So, I guess Buckle is a pet. I'll show you to him, and his family, one day. If you'd like, I mean. I know some people don't like the Forest..." Max explained.

"And yeah, parents, eh? Mine really don't understand anything!" Max sighed. They weren't bad parents, they just couldn't quite comprehend Max's hyperactive, hit and miss personality. And animals simply weren't interesting enough for them.

Prim gave a soft laugh at that, rubbing the back of her head with one hand while holding Freddo with the other. "It's the same with me. They tend to use Primrose when I'm in trouble." She could still remember when she had been just a little kid and the matron at the orphanage always used to call her full name because she had either done something she wasn't supposed to or didn't do any of the chores that had been assigned to her. Not like she actually got into much trouble; just a day of grounding or no snacks. It wasn't like it hurt her.

Prim shoved the thought of that magazine from her mind, she didn't want to think about stuff like that. Not now anyway and especially not when she was with a guy who probably had no idea himself what it was by the way he said the stuff. She didn't know that there were still such innocent people in their year but she supposed not many were yet interested in stuff like that. Or at least not interested in seeking random naked girls.

"She liked it." Prim pouted though beamed when he said he couldn't wait to meet her. "I'm sure you'll love her. She's a dear. Always knows when I have a letter to send and she comes to me herself, without me having to trek all the way to the Owlery to do it." It had amused Prim when she had noticed that and she couldn't help but be proud about her owl.

"Ah, and that's your problem." Prim giggled softly. "You need to give this little ball of fluff something before asking him to find someone. It's how cats, dogs and any other animals really work. "You don't need to thank me. I'm sure you would've realised it yourself after a few more times of being led around the nose by your cat." She said in amusement.

"I love the forest!" She grinned as she got into his personal bubble. "Please do show him to me. I'd love to meet a Bowtruckle at least once. They sound as if they would make the perfect pet for anyone." Not to mention she loved animals that lived in the wild.

"..." She didn't say anything on the topic of parents. What could she say? Oh sorry, I can't say anything because I don't have any? Yeah, that would just be an invitation for unwelcome questions that she wasn't comfortable answering, at least until she, herself, still didn't know the answers to most.

"What do you get in trouble for? Mine's always my attention span. Mum and dad think that my attention span is a problem. But adult stuff is so boring, I don't understand why I can't just switch off!" Max explained, shaking his head at the thought.

"I like it too! I just never heard that name before!" Max replied when the witch pouted. He hoped she wasn't upset, because he really hadn't meant to upset anyone. "That sounds awesome, too! I never have anyone to write to, though. Well, except mum and dad, I guess. But they probably wouldn't have very much of interest to talk about. Who do you write to?" Max added, not meaning to pry in to Prim's business, but curious no less.

"I know, I know! I'll get him a treat next time." Max replied, knowing that it had been a really stupid thing to fall down on.

"I will show you. But, not now. Buckle is a little bit shy, so if you came unannounced, he'd probably not come out. But if I explain, he'll be happy to meet you, I'm sure of that much!" Max insisted, though the explanation might be weird, Max knew his Bowtruckle. "I'll let you know about it, though, yeah?" The boy added, hoping this would make sure that he could see Prim again. Hopefully.

The silence on the parents front Max took to be that Prim didn't fully agree. He didn't mind, he knew that some people had very good relationships with their parents. Sometimes he had a good relationship with his parents, but it wasn't always easy. "Don't worry, everyone has their own experiences. I'm just a bit too open about mine. But, it's okay if you're not. Understandable." Max filled the silence giving her a small smile.

"Most of the time it's for not doing what I'm told to do." Prim said with a soft laugh as she rubbed the back of her neck, a cheeky grin on her lips. "I rarely listen to what I'm being told and I get in trouble because of that." The blond tended to get in trouble more often than not and the orphanage Matron had actually slowly stopped even caring and only chided her in exasperated amusement.

The fact that Prim only really had the twins to write to didn't actually upset her as much as she would've thought. Of course, it did at first when she had been an eleven-year-old but after that, it just relieved her that she actually had someone to write to, unlike some people who had no-one or whose parent's didn't want to write them. "Just... some people." She wearily said, not really actually willing to talk about her orphaned state just yet. It wasn't fresh but it still stung.

"I know you will." Prim beamed at Max as she let Froddo down from her arms when he started whining. She was quite sure he smelt another mouse somewhere.

"That's okay. I can wait to meet Buckle." She replied with sincerity as she flipped her hair over her shoulder, the locks getting in her eyes which just annoyed her though she wasn't willing to cut her hair. She loved it long.

"...I.. don't have any." The girl said after a few minutes of silence, biting her lower lip as she looked away from Max. She didn't want to see the pity or guilt people use showed on their faces after asking her about stuff like that. "Parent's that is... I'm an orphan..."

Max was finding more and more that he had a fair bit in common with the witch before him. It was nice, because many people didn't give Max the time of day because he was quirky. Prim, though, seemed much nicer than a lot of people in this school. "I get that, so much!" Max replied to her explanation, giving her a smile which said he completely understood the getting told off for not doing something.

The closed off response of who Prim wrote to was one Max let go. Instead, just nodding to show he had heard her response. No press came from the boy, though. Some people didn't like to be open about everything, and he understood that. Most of the time.

As Prim put Freddo down, the cat strode off towards the common room. Max suspected that he was going to go and curl up on Max's bed as he usually did after wandering the castle. "He likes you." Max told the witch with a small chuckle. "Though, he has a fondness for girls." He added, shaking his head at the beast for being so fickle.

The agreement to wait was all Max needed as Prim played with her hair. Max's attention was captivated with the movement momentarily before he caught himself staring. Small things took Max's attention, like the movement of someone's hair. He took a moment to look away, before realising he hadn't responded to Prim. "Great, I'll let you know!" Max insisted, and he meant it sincerely.

The next piece of information made Max look at Prim without a clue how to respond to that. Well, momentarily Max didn't know what to do with it. But, then he realised something. "Well, everyone has parents..." Max replied very cautiously, trying to decide how to continue. He'd never come up against this before. Well, not exactly. "My friend Elyah," Max didn't know that Elyah might like this to be kept quiet, so he was sharing without thinking. "Thought that she didn't have a dad. But, he came for her in our second... or was it third... I think it was our second year. And, he's pretty awesome!" Max explained, hoping this made some sense. Though, he was somewhat tentative with how he looked at the witch.

"And, you know that if doesn't matter. That your parents aren't around. You're still awesome!" Max told her, hoping that would be enough to make her see that, to Max, these things were of little consequence. Parents didn't make Max like or dislike someone.

Prim laughed at his words and gave him a smile back as she stretched her arms above her head, her head tilted back. The cracks of bones snapping back into place made her wince but also made her exhale in relief. She rarely stood around in place for so long but talking with Max was certainly fun and she didn't want to stop.

Because people rarely asked her about her family situation she rarely had to answer so she couldn't yet control her emotions or expressions. It hurt to think about parents who, quite probably, abandoned her but she hoped to find the reason why she had been left at the orphanage as if she was only some type of next days rubbish.

"I like him too." She beamed at Max, fondly thinking that maybe she should've gotten a cat instead of an owl but quickly threw that thought away. She loved her owl and there was no way she would trade her for anything else.

She felt Max's eyes on her but didn't think anything about it and instead just smiled at his sincerity. There weren't many people around who were as sincere as Max and it was a welcome relief to Prim who had only met fake people so far.

"I probably still do have parents...." She shrugged her shoulders. "All I know is that I was abanonded at an orphanage when I was four. I can't remember my parent's faces or if I had any other family." It didn't hurt as much as she thought it would; the thought of having more family out there but them not caring about her.

"Thank you." Prim said softly with a bittersweet smile; yup, she would enjoy hanging around Max. He didn't pity her for not having parents or any other family.

As Prim agreed with him about her parents, Max was glad to see she wasn't getting upset. There wasn't much need - if she didn't know them, it would (in Max's head) be quite difficult to miss them. It was still sad, yes, but Max thought that she had lucked out, not knowing her parents.

"They've lost out, you know. Not knowing such an awesome person. I mean, I'm a bit biased, of course, 'cus I think you're awesome already." Max explained, not knowing what else to add in that moment. Standing awkwardly for a moment longer, Max contemplated the thought in his head (a rare occurrence) before moving forward and enveloping Prim in a tight hug.

Prim might not need the hug, but Max figured a little bit of comfort might help. And, hey, a hug was always nice even if you didn't feel sad. Holding it for a short while, to make sure his point was made, Max pulled away with a wide grin.

"I've got to go, Prim. But I will definitely look out for you! Stay awesome, yeah?" He insisted, cheekily booping her nose with his finger before moving off toward the common room. "Oh!" Max added, turning around but still heading in the direction of the common room. "If Freddo pesters you from this point on, it's all your own fault for giving him attention!" Max told her with a laugh, turning back to walking forward and hurrying off to find his book.

Prim didn't care either way that she had no parents; if they had wanted her they would've kept her. However, she did want to find out just who her parents were and what had been their reason for abandoning her. She had a feeling that even if she did find out she just wouldn't care. She certainly wouldn't want to get to know them either.

"Thank you." The blond laughed softly at his words, already feeling that little bit better about her own lack of parents. It amazed her what having a friend could do to a person's self-esteem and worth. Finding herself suddenly enveloped in a tight hug, Prim stiffened for just a tiny second before her arms came up and around Max's waist, returning the hug with equal tightness.

It had been a while since she had been given one but it was something that she had missed; especially since the only ones that had given her hugs had been the twins and the last time she remembered they had given her a hug a good five years ago. Adult life keeping them from actually visiting her at the orphanage.

"Alright." Prim beamed at him, her eyes going cross-eyed at the finger that booped her nose before a light flush appeared on her cheeks. "He's welcome to pester me!" She laughed herself. "He's an awesome cat." She watched Max disappear into the common room before she herself, made her way down the stairs. Maybe the library would be a better place for some quiet?
