PostSubject: Summer Lazing (Jake's Charries)   Tue Apr 04, 2017 3:58 pm

It was a blue kinda day, and Sienna had gone with just that, colour coordinating her entire outfit to the chosen colour, save per the flower in her hair. That would be just a tad too much blue. It was a Saturday just before the last week of school or so and Sienna was not bothered by the dress code any longer. What could they do? Threaten to suspend her? It was almost summer holidays, so that wouldn't carry much weight. Besides, everyone was mostly past the caring stage, and she was going to use that to her full advantage.

Making her way down to the lake with everything she wanted on her, she smiled to herself as she found it free of others. Most of them were busy with the assignment due dates coming up and the essays that they had to write. They weren't very interesting topics, though, and Sienna knew she'd be able to do them rather quickly later on. For today, she wanted to just chill with her music.

Earphones already plugged in, she silently sent an ironic thank you to whoever was out there -- Merlin, god, fairies, whatever the hell else people invented -- that they found a way to allow devices to work in Hogwarts. She would've flat out refused to come if she wasn't able to text her friends or listen to music.

The latest iPhone in her hands, she walked to a secluded spot under a shady tree and sat herself down, humming softly to the music playing.

Oliver had given up on his homework, finding it much too tedious to stay focused for long enough to complete it. He could hear his mother chastising him in his head, but he really had tried. It had just become too much in the end. He'd come back to it, though whether this would be before the deadline, only time would tell.

Instead, Oliver had gone about using his time for other purposes, namely going out to the grounds with the intention of maybe going for a run - so he'd put on a pair of shorts, and a sports shirt - before deciding it was too hot for such things. The lake, had therefore been the place in which he was headed that morning, aimlessly wandering, really.

His mind was off somewhere else, until he noticed another figure. A smile touched the boy's lips as he focused - politeness never hurt anyone - but as his eyes fully registered the witch he received a very odd feeling flood him. The need to impress, followed by an impulse to go closer. Oliver blinked a little, not really knowing what on Earth that feeling was, but tried to shake it.

Oliver's feet, however, had a mind of their own as he moved closer to the witch. "Umm... hi..." Oliver said to the witch, managing to stop himself from moving closer in case he were to startle the witch. The frown on his features would probably tell a whole story, though, to anyone who actually knew what was going on in that moment.

Sienna was enjoying the light breeze that was just playing with the tips of her hair and the music blasting in her ears. It wasn't all too often she got to take breaks like this, and Merlin knew that she wasn't going to have any time to herself when she started the summer 'holidays'. Her parents would have too much to teach her and she'd have too many lessons to complete to be able to chill like this.

Truth be told she didn't really mind all too much. She liked learning about the different ways she could follow someone without detection, and how to seduce even the most faithful of men -- and, perhaps, woman, if the need were to arise. She found a thrill in brewing potions that could murder people with a single drop, or paralyse them, or give them nightmares so bad they wet the bed. There was something about power that captivated her entirely, and learning how to harness this power and create it where it wasn't naturally found was her hobby.

Still, it would've been nice to have some off time to hang out with friends from school or to sit by the water doing nothing. At the very least she had her summer allowance to spend, both in galleons and in muggle money, and the weekends were allocated to her for doing just that. It wasn't to be all lessons; she had her assignments, too, her part of the work for her family.

But that was still a week away, and for the moment, Sienna merely enjoyed freedom.

Something caught her attention and she quickly paused her music, pulling the earphones out and letting them dangle around her neck as she turned to survey the person approaching her from the side. It was a male, seemingly younger than her, but still rather good looking. He had an odd expression on his features, a frown, eyes staring, and she recognised it at once.

She offered the male a wide smile. She'd seen him around before, although they'd never been properly introduced. He was a Hufflepuff, if she recalled correctly.

"Hello," she replied, sitting up a little straighter to reveal her entire midrif. She stretch her legs out in front of her, crossing one over the other to hide anything that shouldn't be seen, although her skirt was high enough to be more than a little suggestive.

Almost absentmindedly, she plucked her flower clip from her hair and began rake her fingers through her hair before repositioning it. She hadn't needed to do it, but it was fun to see the reactions it got. "Come to relax by the lake, have we?" she asked as she did this. "There's a shady spot here, if you don't mind sharing with me."

Oliver Goulding was what his mother would call a 'perfect little gentleman' and though he wouldn't admit it, he did believe in this philosophy completely. He would never, ever treat women less than himself, and he would always, always, make sure he was polite, respectful and not predatory in any manner.

In his normal mind set, anyway.

However, as the witch before him sat up straighter, revealing a midriff that would set any man's heart beat in a moment, Oliver's eyes strayed from the witch's face without really meaning to. Taking her in - and it was definitely not subtle - Oliver felt his cheeks grow a little warm. Not in a deep blush, no, but a slight reddening of his cheeks began to appear.

Oliver didn't really know how to deal with this, he'd never really spoken to a woman with such... well, beauty. Okay, that wasn't true, he knew many beautiful girls, but none of them wore it in such a manner as the witch before him. Swallowing as she moved her legs, Oliver tried to force himself to look away, but something... something he didn't understand, was keeping him in place, almost helplessly.

The question of the lake made Oliver nod almost at once, and then the option to sit with the beautiful witch before him made Oliver scramble to sit beside her.

What on Earth was going on?

"I don't know what I was doing..." Oliver admitted before looking over at the witch once more. He swallowed again, somewhat nervous now he was sat beside her, almost like a puppy. "You-know-you're-really-beautiful?" Oliver blurted out, eyes going wide because he had no idea where that had come from.

As soon as his eyes moved from her face, Sienna knew she'd already won, and the blush proved it. It seemed the boy was thoroughly captivated by her, not that she blamed him; she knew she had looks. Sure, not as much as her mother (or her mother's siblings, whom she'd never met but seen pictures of) or those who had more Veela blood, but a third was already more than enough to gain attention -- not that she minded. In fact, Sienna thrived on it, finding it a thrill when people outright stopped to stare at her or check her out.

And, while she herself was straight, she didn't mind being checked out by other females. It was, after all, a compliment.

She let him take her in, not bothering to move or pretend to be abashed. Why should she? If she was shy, she wouldn't have chosen such revealing clothes. The only thing she regretted was putting in a belly ring; that would have really set the boy staring. But she hadn't exactly gotten permission for that particular piercing, and she didn't want that to get out just yet.

His statement brought a gentle bubbling laugh out from her. "That's alright. You can keep me company," she told him, lifting a shoulder in a semi-shrug. "It's boring by myself." Slowly, she uncrossed her legs and then recrossed them, this time with the other leg on top, as though simply to get comfortable.

His next words really made her laugh, and she let it out slowly, so it didn't appear as though she was laughing at him. She wasn't, not really; it was the way he admitted it. It was clear that he was not a flirter, and that it was most likely his first time meeting a Veela. Who could blame him?

"That's such a sweet thing to say!" she gushed, making it sound as though it was the very first time she'd heard such a compliment. "Thank you." She offered him a smile, bright and full, and then let a moment pass. "Am I to know your name, or only that you're remarkably kind with your words?" she asked, then, adding a very light wink.

Oliver simply gave the witch a smile when she said that he could keep her company. Words, it seemed, were failing the boy, because he was somewhat captivated by the girl who had invited him to join her where she sat.

The witch moved her legs again as he sat down, and Oliver's eyes followed the movement. He knew he shouldn't. He knew his mother would be horrified if she knew how he was acting in that moment, and yet, he couldn't stop himself from doing it.

Why? His mind supplied, trying to understand what was happening, but failing.

As the witch thanked him for the compliment, Oliver smiled brightly at the witch, eyes reverting to her face now and not on her legs. Though, he had noted, not purposefully, that her legs looked very smooth. Oliver's mind suggested something that he knew he couldn't do, and was thankful she took his attention away from those long legs.

"My name is Oliver. Oliver Goulding." Oliver supplied the witch, almost without a thought. He wanted, no, needed, to please her. His mind insisting that this was the thing to do, even if he had absolutely no reason to do so. "What's your name? Sorry... that's rude..." Oliver asked, looking slightly sheepish in that moment.

For a moment, Sienna wondered how long he would stare at her legs. If she were to keep switching them, over and over and over during their conversation, would he look each time? What if, by sheer accident, she moved it in such a way that it wasn't closed? What if she shifted position and her skirt rilled up just a tad more? Would he still watch, or would he try something more? There'd been those over the years that had taken her lack of clothing to mean they could try their luck, and these she very swiftly and quickly dealt with; her parents had, after all, made her learn numerous types of martial arts.

But that was a game for later. For now, she merely wanted to know more about the boy. Besides, it wouldn't do to get someone expelled because of something they couldn't control, although she highly doubted that the male before her was one to try. He was captivated and easily influenced, that was certain, but he seemed too shy to do anything forceful.

Besides, he'd blushed, and those who blushed usually weren't all that experiened and knew that staring was wrong. That meant, at the very least, he had some form of manners.

She took note of his name. Nobody famous or well known, as far as she knew; it certainly wasn't a Pureblood name. While her father had been disowned, she was still made to study the list of names of higer up families, both so she knew which to stay away from and which she could go after. But Oliver Goulding seemed to be a nobody -- and those were her favourite kind of people to deal with; nobody really cared if something... happened... to them.

"Sienna Gibson," she replied, smile widening. "And I think your manners are perfect, Oliver." She paused, wondering if she dared be cruel -- then, seeing no harm in it, held out a hand towards him, palm down. "But if you feel like you've been rude, a kiss would suffice as an apology, although I don't think you've done anything that requires one..."

Gibson... Gibson... The boy tried to place the name, coming up short in that moment. He might have seen her in classes, he wasn't particularly sure. But, he didn't recognise the name, for whatever reason he attributed to it. But, her first name was both unusual and pretty, and Oliver couldn't help but murmur it softly under his breath to get a feel for it.

As Sienna continued on about giving her a kiss - on the hand, his mind supplied a moment later as he was given her hand - to make up for his rudeness, Oliver took her hand, and with a glance up at the witch, he kissed her knuckles ever so gently. Not in a manner that would say he didn't want to, but in a sign of respect to the witch before him.

"I am sorry, I should probably know your name by now. I guess... our paths just haven't crossed, for some reason..." Oliver explained, rubbing the back of his neck a little in a sheepish manner before he glanced out across the lake. There was a pause, before Oliver turned back to the witch, giving her his full attention once more.

"How come you're out here on your own? Surely someone like you has a tonne of friends..? And if you don't then I definitely think we could be friends." Oliver explained, much more quickly than he would usually talk, but he was blaming that on the weird feeling inside of him that he couldn't put his finger on.

He went for it, and Sienna had to hide a laugh of sheer glee. Merlin, if only everyone were as susceptible to her as this boy, she'd (quite literally) rule the world in a matter of weeks! But she wasn't so self-absorbed that she let this get to her head; she knew this wasn't too common, and that most of the time she had to work for this sort of reaction -- and even then, usually only in part. Just because she knew it wasn't common, however, didn't mean she wasn't going to milk it for all it was worth. No, Sienna was much to devious to let an opportunity like this go. Besides, she wanted to test the male before her, see how far he'd go for mere looks.

Oh, she could have offered more than just looks -- and perhaps, depending how it went, a kiss or two -- but he was younger than her, and unless absolutely necessary, Sienna prefered older males. They had more experience, most of the time, and were more mature about the whole thing.

His kiss was gentle and soft, and she wondered briefly if he'd done this sort of thing before or only ever observed. There wasn't really a right or wrong way to kiss the back of one's hand, though; it was the real kissing that determined how experienced someone was in that field. First kisses were almost always a bore.

She didn't bother biting back a smile at his comment. It really did seem as if she had him head over heels already, which was quite amusing, considering she hadn't really tried. Sure, she'd hinted and done some light suggestive work, but nothing over the top. If she really wanted to, she knew she could have him literally eating out of her hand.

"And what a shame it is that it hasn't!" she replied. "You are quite the charmer, I must admit." He wasn't, not really, but feeding the ego of people, she found, usually always worked in her favour.

This time she really did let out a laugh, light and gentle, at his words. He was cute -- and not in the way some people were that made her want to go after them, no. He was like someone else's puppy or kitten, great to play and mess around with, but not something she wanted in her life. She needed more challenge, more brains, more...everything, really. But still, a part of her couldn't help but like Oliver. He seemed naive and sweet, a breath of genuinity in a world of fake.

That also meant he would have his heart utterly and brutally shattered at some point, but that didn't bother her. Reality always seemed to crush the innocent; it was simply a matter of time.

"My friends are busy with homework," she replied, shrugging. "I thought I could use some fresh air and relax before the busy summer up ahead." She offered him another smile. "I would love to be friends with you," she added, stressing the word just a little. "And what about you, Oliver? Why are you out here alone?"

Oliver had simply smiled as Sienna told him he was a charmer.
Not really knowing whether to agree, or disagree with that statement, Oliver had simply allowed it to be because there wasn't really a problem with the word. He was - oddly - nervous as to whether he'd kissed her hand in the right manner.

Was there a right way?

But, his mind gave up on trying to second guess himself when the witch explained that her friends were busy with homework, and that was why she was out her on her own. "Busy summer?" Oliver asked, almost without thinking. He'd only just met the witch, the question was probably not one he had a right to, but he'd asked it anyway. "You have a summer job?" Oliver asked, genuinely curious before he remembered her question of why he was out in the grounds on his own.

"Oh, I just like some time to myself. Especially when exercising. I can go at my pace." He explained, motioning to his running gear. Though... now... well, he didn't really want to go running. He just wanted to stay sat with the beautiful witch beside him, and talk about... anything!

Yes, I have to seduce a wealthy muggle male, steal something from his room, and then return home without anyone catching on. On top of that, I need to perfect a deadly potion and the antidote, and then I have a test on my poison antidotes. If I fail, servants literally die, not that it matters; we can always get new ones. I'm pretty sure I'm also going to have an assignment similar to the one I had over Christmas -- to secude men into giving me money, and to reach a certain quota. And, lastly, I have my school homework. So yes, busy summer.

Sienna wanted to say all this, just to see the reaction it would garner, but held herself back. That was too much, and besides, some of the things there were secret. So, instead, she shrugged lightly. "You could say that," she laughed. "My parents run a business in the US -- nothing too interesting, and it's really technical -- so they want me to learn the secret of their trades. Most of my summers are spent doing odd jobs for them and practising what they teach."

It was her standard answer, and while seemingly detailed and complete, actually gave nothing away whatsoever. If he chose to ask, she had other answers similar to that, ones that had taken her a while to come up with and perfect, but was now recited with such ease and simplicity that not a single part of it seemed suspicious in the least.

She glanced over at the gear, allowing a hint of surprise to touch her features as though only noticing them for the first time. "Oh! Did I interrupt your exercise?" she asked, as if she'd been the one who approached him and not the other way around. "I'm sorry if I have; please, don't let me stop you if you wanted to run." Now she was just toying with him, seeing exactly how far down the rabbit hole of emotions he'd slipped into without meaning to.

Oliver listened once again as Serenity explained that she'd be working for her parents. The idea of someone's parents having their own business was quite impressive, really. He didn't know anyone that did that... well, no, that wasn't true, he knew of plumbers who worked for themselves, and electricians,
but he didn't think Serenity's parents were doing something that small from the way she was talking.

"Well... It sounds fun." Oliver offered the witch with a small smile. He didn't have a summer job, personally. But that could well change over the summer if his parents suggested he needed one. He wasn't entirely sure that they would... but who knew.

The idea of heading off on a run was not one that appealed to Oliver at all in that moment, his eyes being drawn back to the witch, he gave her a very contented smile. "No, it's okay. I'm quite enjoying talking to you, if I'm honest." Oliver told the witch, the weird pull of the girl beside him still not completely registering for what it was in that moment.

"You were listening to your iPod, right? What's your favourite band? Do you like Muggle bands?" He asked, wanting to know more about Sienna but not really having a clue about how you flirted... or even did that. Therefore, her music taste was the first thing that had come to mind, and he was rolling with it.

She let out a light laugh. Fun was exactly how she'd describe it -- along with dangerous, exhilerating, and sometimes downright sexy. But some parts were also tedious, and held consequences should she get it wrong; it wasn't a typical job where the worse that could happen was you get someone pissed off and get fired. In her line of work, if she screwed up, it could result in death. Or, worse, her parents got exposed and the entire family was shipped off to Azkaban -- herself included.

But if there was no danger, nothing that could go wrong, there was nothing to lose -- and if there was nothing to lose, there was no risk. And it was the risk that was fun.

She smiled at Oliver, flashing perfect teeth. "That's one way to describe it," she agreed. "What do you do during the holidays, Oliver?" She drawled his name out, pronouncing it slowly, deciding not to roll the 'r' at the last moment. As a result, it came out soft, familiar, as though it was a secret shared between the two.

His next set of words set into stone what Sienna was already certain about; he was smitten, completely. There'd been no challenge, and she was somewhat disappointed, but instead of focusing on what she hadn't gotten, she focused on what she had instead -- and what she had was a younger Hufflepuff male in the palm of her hands.

She sent him another smile. "I'm glad, although I'm not entirely sure what about me you're enjoying," she said, then paused, considering him for a moment. "And please do be honest; people who lie are so unbecoming."

The question told her more about the male -- he either grew up in the muggle world or had parents who were very open. How else would he know about iPods? She nodded, considering her options. Her taste in music wasn't exactly what one would call specific; she had a tendency to listen to a wide range. Besides, she didn't know what the male liked.

So instead of offering solid answers, she simply shrugged. "I listen to a lot of people. I do like Muggle bands; I was just listening to Demi Lovato. What about you? Who do you listen to?"

The question of his holidays made Oliver shrug a little bit. "Nothing much really. I don't have a summer job. So, I just hang around with my little sister mostly. And some of the boys from the school I went to before Hogwarts. But... things have changed, since coming here, I mean, the friendship is different." Oliver tried to explain, though he wasn't sure that would make a lot of sense, really.

"I like the way you say Oliver..." He added, musing over it for a moment. Honestly, Oliver was taking the bait from the witch without her really having to try. The Hufflepuff had no idea what was happening, he just felt a little out of sorts. But not in a bad way that made him question himself.

Not in the current moment, anyway.

"You're good company." Oliver said almost insisting in that moment. "And, you're very pretty. Not to mention... I feel kinda relaxed sat here." Oliver explained, not seeing a problem with doing so, either. "I just, want to get to know you a bit better."

As Sienna went on to explain about what music she liked - even if it was a bit vague - Oliver nodded at the name he was given. "She's not too bad." He commented, before the question was turned back on him. "Oh, I listen to anything and everything, really. But I do like this quirky band called Panic! at the Disco. Mostly, though, I listen to the music in the Muggle charts." He finalised, giving a small shrug. Oliver wasn't a crowd follower, per se, but the music of the majority was good enough for him.

Connections were always something that Sienna made double sure remained no matter what, but at the notion of friendships she couldn't help but smile. She often kept in touch with people, both Muggle and non, but were they really friends, or people useful to her? A lot of effort was put into maintaining them, so she couldn't really say she knew what it was like to have the friendship change; but, she supposed, if people she talked to often acted differently around her, she'd ferret out the whys, only to ensure they weren't going behind her back.

Still, she nodded, pretending she understood; that was, she had learnt, the sucess to friendships. If you made general statements and nodded at the right times, you could convince anyone of anything -- without once actually lying, at that.

His next comment made her laugh, although she made sure to keep it in a judgement free tone; she was, though, completely amused. "Well, I can say it again, if you want, Oliver," she said, not even bothering to pretend she wasn't outright flirting. He was so far gone that she was sure she could admit she was going to kill him and carve his body into pieces (not that she would; she never got her hands dirty whenever possible, and to do this in the middle of a public area at this time of day was stupid) and he would stick around and let her.

"You're such a sweet boy," she pratically cooed, smiling at him. Boy, though, not man; that was clear. For a moment, she was tempted to reach out and pat him on the head, the imagery of a dog at her feet being amusing -- but she resisted, because that was just a tad too degrading, even for her. Instead, she added, "Consider me your open book, then, Oliver; ask me anything you want."

Listening to Muggle charts... The idea was solidifying that he was a muggleborn, but she wasn't going to ask -- not yet, anyway. Some people got offended at being asked, and while she was sure he saw her as nothing but pure perfection, she didn't want to risk the slight chance that her comment offended him so much that she lost her grip.

"I have some of their music," she said, nodded at his words. "I listen to a lot of Indie artists, but there are nice ones on the charts, too." She paused, slipping out her phone and, turning it on, opened the phone page and held it out towards Oliver. "While we're at it, why don't we exchange numbers? With summer about to start, we could always text."

The offer for her to say it again was one that just made Oliver smile in a manner that said yes please without actually saying those words. She'd said his name again, and he couldn't deny that he was enjoying the sound of it. Weird how just one person's slight infliction on his name could make it sound so much better than anyone else.

The haze of his mind was not lifting, by any stretch of the imagination, but Oliver wasn't even trying to fight it off anymore.

Sienna continued on with how he was sweet, before expressing the fact she was an open book for him. He considered for a moment, before he spoke again. "What things do you like doing the most? When you don't have to work, and things like that." Oliver asked, because that would surely give him more of an insight to the girl beside him. "What do you like? Favourite color? Animal?" He asked, before shrugging. He didn't have a clue where he was going with this, but Oliver was going to keep talking until he ran out of ideas to talk about.

"Indie music is good, too!" Oliver replied with a small nod of his head. "I tend to listen to a mix, so there is some Indie music on my iPod." He told her, giving a casual shrug before Sienna held her phone out to him. And asked for his number. Oliver's eyes widened at the presentation of her phone, before taking it from her carefully and plugging his phone number in to it, and saving it with his full name, before handing it back to her.

"Text me any time. Or, if you have WhatsApp, I use that too, so that I don't run down my credit if I have Wi-Fi. But, you know, it doesn't matter if you don't. It's just an option." He explained, smiling warmly.

The question made her pause, and she pretended she was considering an answer. In actual fact, she was constructing her answer into words that were both acceptable but ambigous; she would tell him exactly what she was into, but in such a way that he, most likely, would intepret in a wrong way. But before she could, he was asking more questions, and she took note of each of them; those were easier to answer.

"I like people a lot," she said, a moment later. "I like talking to them and getting to know them; I find them... interesting... and figuring out what they like and don't like is fun. But my parents are in that business -- of knowing what people want and giving it to them -- so I guess that's not entirely what I do when I don't work. I enjoy work, though." She flashed him another smile.

"I like chocolate," she added. "And shopping." She let out a girlish giggle that was completely unlike her, purely to see the reaction it would get. At this point, she was seeing how far she could push it before he'd realise something was up. One thing was for sure -- she wouldn't keep him around for long. Puppies were fun, but worthless, after all.

"My favourite colour," she went on, then paused and grinned. "What do you think? I'll give you three guesses. If you get it right, there's a prize in it for you." Winking, she left it at that.

"I don't really have a favourite animal, though." There was more she could say on that subject, more she could draw from it, but it was dull. What was the point? She could've twisted it to such a way that it caught his attention, but at this point he was so far in she didn't even need to try. And so, boredom already starting to creep in, she didn't bother.

This was the reason she merely flashed him a smile at his comment about music, and said nothing more; there was nothing more to say.

Taking the phone back, she made sure to let her hand brush against his, even if only slightly. Human contact, she'd learnt early on, was vital to keeping someone hooked -- especially in limited and small quantities, keeping them wanting more but never giving them quite enough to satisfy their needs. "I have WhatsApp," she said. "Do you have snapchat? I tend to send my friends pictures often, if you do, but-" she shrugged, "-no pressure. I'm not sure you want to see my face all summer, anyway."
