PostSubject: Cloud Examples (Finley)   Mon Sep 07, 2015 6:43 pm

The Gryffindor laid sprawled out on the ground, looking up at the sky. For the past hour she'd been laying there comfortable picking out shapes in the ground. As a pop star, it was something she probably shouldn't do because people seemed to think pop stars were constantly preparing for their next tour or whatever. However, right now, Layla was enjoying being just a regular child.

The girl was beyond naive for her age and she was oh so innocent, she'd feel sorry for Ethan if he ever dated her because she'd probably only ever hold his hand.

As she stared up at the clouds, she thought about everything: her classes, her lack of friends, new songs and her parents. They seemed to be proud of her, but maybe that was just because she was bringing in money for them. Layla was enjoying the cool but not too cool September weather when she vaguely heard the sound of footsteps.

It shouldn't shock her, especially since she was at such a large school with a large amount of students on a beautiful day.

Finley was - stupidly - still on cloud nine from his summer. Crushes were something very, very new to him, and every time he thought about the Amber he got a slight reddening to his cheeks that showed he had enjoyed the moment more than he would care to admit.

Moving in to his fourth year meant that a number of things had changed for Finley, but mostly it was the new awareness he had of himself.

And girls.

Girls were very beautiful to Finley now, not that they weren't before, but now he noticed (and often reacted) to girls much more than normal. Not enough to distract him from studies, but enough to make him wonder. But, Finley was too shy to act upon any such feelings, so it would never, ever matter what was going on in his head.

Stepping out in to the grounds with his Herbology book, Finley took off across the grounds with no destination in mind. Naomi was busy with something he'd not quite heard, so he had to make himself busy - or at least scarce for a while.

Thinking he'd found a quite spot, Finley was about to sit down when he noted someone else. A girl. Wondering whether he should leave, Finley stood still for a moment, thinking. Then, deciding it couldn't hurt, Finley did something he didn't usually do. "Hi!" The Ravenclaw said brightly, managing to keep his stutter at bay for the single syllable word. "I'm F-Finley. Do you m-mind if I join y-you?" He asked, controlling his stutter just a little more than usual, despite his cheeks going a little red in the process.

She was a princess in a far away land. However, her village was under attack by a large dragon so she wielded a sword and battled it. The dragon tried to burn her to a crisp but she dodged him, smacking him with the rather large sword. Round after round she tried and tried to defeat the dragon, always falling just short of success before finally -

The sound of the voice caused her to look up, her blue eyes connecting with eyes of the same colour that the older boy wore. Layla loved eyes. Mostly because eyes were the window to the soul or so she was told. To her, you could tell what the person's personality was like by their eyes which is why every time she met someone, she looked them in the eye.

"Hi," she replied cheerfully back towards him. "I'm Layla, nice to meet you Finley, and no, I don't mind at all." She gave the boy a warm smile as she waited for him to sit next to her. She noticed the stutter in his words, but it didn't bother her, in fact, she thought it was sort of adorable, especially as his cheeks seemed to turn to a reddish colour.

She recognised the boy from several of her classes. She knew he had been older, but if he shared classes with her it meant he was maybe only a fourth year right?

The smile from the witch was enough to make Finley relax, if only marginally. Smiley people were usually nicer. Not always, but usually. This meant that Finley could try to be a little more relaxed, even if that was difficult for him.

When he was told the witch's name, he scolded himself inwardly for not remembering her from classes. "It's n-nice to meet you." Finley told the witch, taking a seat beside her and putting his book down beside him. Whilst he wanted to read, he knew that it would be rude of him to simply open his book upon sitting next to the witch.

The only problem now, however, was that Finley was not very good at conversation. Well, he wasn't very good at conversation unless the person was Naomi, with Naomi he could talk to her for hours. And, slowly, he was getting better at talking with Sumire, but Sumire was confident in leading a conversation... His mind was going off on a tangent as he thought of his friends.

Shaking his head a little to rid the thoughts, Finley looked sideways to the witch beside him and gave her a small smile. "It's a nice d-day, right?" He asked her. Okay, it was not the best conversation in the world, but it was a start. "I c-came outside to see if I-I could see t-the plants changing for w-winter." Finley explained, motioning to his book. That, he realised a moment later, probably made him sound more of a geek than he looked.

Frowning to himself, Finley took a deep breath and looked to Layla once more. "W-what brings you outside?" He asked, his smile a little sheepish because he wasn't sure he should be pestering her.

She hoped that she looked friendly enough to the boy. Layla couldn't imagine looking unfriendly, even worse, she could never imagine making an enemy. The thought of it even occurring was enough to make her cringe internally.

She was glad that he thought it was nice to meet her as well, for if he had not, then Layla could not think about what to do more less say. However, now, they were in a predicament. Layla wasn't a very good conversation starter and she didn't want to always talk about herself, so she needed help with evenly distributing their conversation.

The girl dramatically rolled over from her back to her stomach and looked at him, leaves scattered about her hair. "It's a fantastic day!" She threw an arm up as she gave him a large grin. The girl was enjoying herself, especially since she was only thirteen and the times she could be her silly self were rare. This, was probably the first time anyone had actually seen that side of her. She listened to him and nodded. "That sounds really interesting, I guess you like Herbology as well?"

"Cloud watching," the girl said, rolling once again, back onto her back this time. "So Finley," she asked, "what's your favourite class?" She glanced at him sideways and smiled.

Finley couldn't help but let out a very soft chuckle at the witch's overly enthusiastic response to his mundane question. Not in a mean way, but in a manner that showed he appreciated it. It reminded him, a little, of the actresses he'd met over the summer with Sumire. He liked it.

The idea of being interesting made Finley pause for a moment, trying to work out how to deal with that comment. Of course, as with any compliment, Finley's cheeks warmed visibly and it took him a moment to collect himself. Compliments were not something he was used to, even with is new friendships that had blossomed in the last couple of years, but he was getting better.

"I do l-like Herbology." Finley confirmed to the witch after a moment. "T-though I'm not very g-good at it." He explained sheepishly, though he didn't add that this was the case for almost everything that Hogwarts taught.

Realising that the witch was cloud watching, Finley looked up to the sky in wonder, but he couldn't see anything of interest. Reading a book was much more interesting, in Finley's opinion, but he wouldn't say that out loud because Layla might think he was being rude.

"My favourite c-class..." Finley mused for a moment, before giving a small shrug. "I l-like all the classes." He admitted, knowing that it sound very geeky but not really caring anymore. "But, I like A-Ancient Runes the m-most." The reason for that was because it was the only class he was actually any good at, but again, he didn't think he needed to say that out loud.

"W-What about you?" Finley asked, watching the witch who was watching the sky.

She was glad to hear a chuckle. For some reason, being able to make someone smile or even laugh was a big accomplishment for her and it felt great. It was one of the reasons she was a musician. Her music could relate to people's feelings and make them feel good about themselves.

She found herself wondering why the boys cheeks grew red again. Was it something she said? Did she have something on her? The girl looked up to the sky before looking back to him, wondering if maybe she was just seeing things. Maybe his face just naturally held a red tinge to it and she was exaggerating things with her eyes.

She smiled at his confession. "There's always time for improvement, I'm sure you'll get better." Typical Layla. She always felt the need to encourage people and make them feel better. "I'm not the best at Potions of Defense Against the Dark Arts," she chimed in, a bit embarrassed.

She smiled, typical Ravenclaw, however, she'd never say it aloud in fear that she may hurt his feelings. It was nice to see someone that liked all the classes almost equally, as it was a hard thing to do.

"Mine is Ancient Runes as well," the girl explained, grinning real big once again at the fact of them having something in common.

The idea of having time made Finley nod a little. "I g-guess." The Ravenclaw replied with a small smile. "P-Professor Ellingston is h-helping me." Finley explained, he wasn't ashamed of needing help, everyone has their weaknesses, and Finley's lied in his confidence and spell casting.

That reminded him that he needed to speak to Professor Ellingston and Professor Hollands about his extra study periods, but that was not for Layla to know about, really.

"P-Potions is good, but m-my hands shake too m-much." Finley explained, holding up his hand that had a light tremor running through it due to his nervous disposition. "But w-when we can work with p-partners it's okay!" He continued, smiling to himself. Layla didn't look like someone who would judge him due to his stutter or nervousness, but he could be wrong... he hoped he wasn't though.

When he found out Layla's favourite subject was the same as his, Finley couldn't help but smile. "Really?" The boy asked, the excitement showing in his features. "T-that's great!" He added a moment later. "I like t-trying to crack the p-puzzle of the Runes, d-don't you?" He asked, enthusiasm quite clear in his features. Though he didn't want a job with Ancient Runes, Finley enjoyed it.

"That's great," the Gryffindor told him. "It's always nice to have a professor who didn't mind giving the extra help." In all honesty, because of that reason her favourite professor was probably Professor Newbury or Headmaster Jameson because they didn't scare her. In fact, to her they seemed encouraging and welcoming and they seemed like they'd be happy to help her if needed.

Lately, she thought about maybe talking to Professor Newbury about what she wanted to do as a career. She knew that he didn't work with Runes, but maybe he could still help her.

"That's okay," she said as he explained about his hands shaking. She knew what it was like to tremble, she did it before every performance, during the performance and even after the performance, but no one would ever know because she moved too much. "I've never worked with anyone," she admitted, "I don't know a lot of people here, but that's okay." The girl was cheerful which hid the fact that she wanted more friends.

"Yes," she smiled. "I really want to have a career based off the Runes, but I'm not sure what." She shrugged as she listened to him and agreed. The puzzles, she had to admit, were quite fascinating and challenging.

Finley smiled to himself when Layla said that Professor Ellingston was nice. The man was nice, despite having a little bit of a scary persona. He'd helped Finley a lot already, and though his confidence was still shaky, Finley was getting more comfortable with magic with each additional lesson they had. "It is g-great." Finley agreed with the witch after a moment.

When Finley found out that the witch didn't have anyone to work with, he frowned a little. Layla seemed nice, which meant she should have friends. "Well, if w-we're allowed, you c-could always work w-with Naomi and m-me." Finley offered, though he didn't know whether Professor Balan would allow such things in his lessons.

Layla's career choice was a good one, and Finley grinned in response. "Professor J-Jameson could probably help y-you." The boy suggested, seeing as they didn't have a school counselor the Headmaster was probably the best choice seeing as he taught the subject. "I t-think I m-might work with animals." Finley told the witch, giving a small shrug. "It n-needs the least m-magic." He added in explanation. Dragons would be cool, but Finley still hadn't made his mind up just yet.

The boy seemed nice enough, much like her in fact, overly nice and maybe under appreciated, but she didn't exactly know about that. She felt under-appreciated sometimes but she didn't know Finley well enough to know if he felt the same way. Sometimes, she found, people took niceness for granted and it wasn't very nice of them.

The boys frown brought a small frown to her face as well. She didn't want to see the boy with the pretty eyes like hers, her new friend, upset. "No really, it's okay," she insisted before finally adding on, "but if it's okay with Professor Balan then I'd be fine with it." She gave him a reassuring smile, hoping to have made the boy feel a bit better.

"I'm sure," she added, agreeing with him. She wondered why Hogwarts didn't open a Career Counseling position and choose a Professor for each year starting at fifth year to help students with what they want to do in the world and adjusting to life on their own. "Animals are so sweet," Layla practically squealed at Finley's career choice. "Have you spoken with Professor Valentine yet? I'm sure she'd be thrilled to help you out," Layla commented, giving him a smile.

When Layla agreed, Finley couldn't help but grin. It seemed, to Finley at least, that he had made another friend. Which was always good. He didn't have many friends, he didn't even need one hand to count his friends, but he could see Layla was going to become one of them. "Great!" Finley summarised with a smile, not needing to say much more on that in that moment.

The question of speaking to Professor Valentine made Finley feel a little nervous. Whilst the professor was always very welcoming, the idea of speaking to another professor was scary. "W-well..." Finley started, swallowing to buy himself a little more time. "I d-don't know..." He finished meekly, giving a small shrug. "I g-guess I could." He continued, before nodding once to show that he was definitely thinking about it.

But, what if Professor Valentine told him it wouldn't suit him to join that career... No, Finley wasn't sure he was quite comfortable enough with the professor to ask her about it just yet.

Deciding to change the topic, Finley looked up to the sky for a minute, thinking to himself before he looked back to his new friend. "How w-was your summer?" The Ravenclaw asked, hoping he wasn't intruding but curious no less.

The one worded answer told her that she didn't need to say anything else on the matter, which honestly, she was thankful for. There were times Layla actually enjoyed working alone and other times, she did actually want a partner, however, she didn't want to feel obliged to be someone's permanent partner. Though, the girl had issues with telling people things like this in fear of hurting their feelings.

Maybe she shouldn't have mentioned the Professor, because seeing the boy sort of hesitate worried her. It was hard to notice, but Layla did in fact notice and she felt horrible. She wanted to squeeze his should in an attempt to reassure him, but she didn't as she was unsure of his stance on friendly contact. "You don't have to if you don't want to though," the girl added once he was finished, "I just thought it would maybe be a good idea." She returned the small shrug and found herself biting her lip as a sign of slight hesitation.

When the boy changed the topic, she let out a breath. "It was a bit stressful and tedious, but also really fun," she smiled, her voice filled with a hint of enthusiasm. The best part had been Ethan coming to her concert, but she didn't really know how to tell Finley that.

"What about yours?" The girl smiled as she returned his question. "Anything exciting happened?" She rested her hands under her chin and batted her eyelashes, smiling hugely.

Finley knew that Layla was right when she said it would be helpful to talk to a professor, but what Layla didn't know was the amount of anxiety that run through his veins every time he had to talk to someone. Especially when that someone was someone older and a lot more powerful than him. Of course, the girl wouldn't know about that. "I'll t-think about it." Finley replied, giving her a small smile.

The answer to his question, however, was a little confusing. The emotions Layla had given him were contrasting, and Finley wasn't sure what to make of what the witch had said, truth be told. "So..." Finley started uncertainly, trying to work it out still. "W-what did you d-do?" He asked, hoping it was okay to ask.

When the question was returned, Finley got a small smile on his lips as he thought back to his summer with Sumire. "I w-went to America." Finley told the witch, looking over to her a little. "I s-stayed at my friends h-house." He added in explanation. "It was g-great, the first t-time I've been abroad. And I m-met some really nice p-people." Finley concluded, thinking of only one girl in particular for a moment.

He wasn't going to tell Layla about Amber, because that was his personal information. Information he would only to tell to the people he really, really trusted. Which meant Naomi.

She smiled towards him when he gave her another answer. There was no use debating about anything, but usually, when people said they'd think about it, it meant they just wouldn't do it. The whole "thinking about it" comes from the fact that people didn't like to make other people feel bad by straight up refusing whatever it was they had offered.

She didn't know how to tell Finley about her summer without seeming incredibly self-centered and proud, neither of which she wanted to present herself as to a new potential friend. "Oh, well, I wrote a song and I hung out with my best friend. He's a seventh year," Layla smiled, providing little information. She wasn't lying even, more so just leaving out the juicy details and giving him the bland ones.

"That sounds really awesome," she exclaimed. She'd been to America too, but it was to perform, therefore she didn't get much tourist time. One thing she hated about world tours, or the world tour, was that just as soon as she'd arrived at her concert site and performed, it was time to leave and head onward to the next. Besides, even if she were allowed to explore as a typical tourist, she would have to have security with her and that was no fun. As a thirteen year old, she should be able to have fun without guards surrounding her.

Despite Layla wishing she were a normal thirteen year old girl, she wasn't and would never be. She ruined her one chance to be anything but famous.

As the conversation seemed to fade out, Finley smiled to himself. He'd made a new friend, of that much he was quite sure. He hoped it would be a long lasting friendship, because he needed them, he was clever enough to work that much out. But, Finley knew he wouldn't ever have lots of friends, and that was okay.

After a few minutes of looking up to the sky at the clouds that seemed to captivate his new friend, Finley let out a soft sigh and picked up his book. "I s-should get on with this r-research I'm doing." He told the witch, though it wasn't vitally important, he was interested in expanding his knowledge as much as he could.

"It was n-nice to meet you, L-Layla, and hopefully I'll see you around s-soon." Finley continued, his smile growing in that moment as he stood up. "E-enjoy the clouds." He finalised, giving the witch a small wave and heading off in search of the plants in his book.
