My bad! (Vincent)

Post by Astoria Greengrass on Tue Oct 06, 2015 4:20 pm

It was a lovely day outside, and although she had homework left to finish Astoria had decided that it could wait. Normally, she would have finished it by now, and by normally she meant fifty years ago. But it was difficult to do so in her common room or dormitory, and so that only left the time before curfew and on the weekends to do it in the library. Which was probably what she should have been doing on that Saturday afternoon, but instead she’d decided that the good weather was far too wonderful to waste doing school work. As she stepped off of the stairs, she was so focused on the open front doors of the Entrance Hall and as such didn’t notice someone in front of her until she walked straight into them.

Vincent's attention, as usual, was buried in the pages of a book. He had developed his maneuvering skill and so far hadn't run into anyone while walking and reading. He made his way into one of the hallways, where the sunlight tugged his focus away from the history book. It is awfully nice out... I suppose it wouldn't hurt to read outside.

Face back in the book, Vincent resumed walking, aiming for the closest exit. In doing so, he collided with another student, causing both of them to drop just about everything they were carrying. Panicked, he rushed to help the girl pick up her things; in doing so he noticed her house emblem, and swallowed nervously. He so far hadn't had any good run-ins with a Slytherin this year, and he had made literally one of the worst first impressions possible. "I'm so sorry! I wasn't... I should've... Are you alright?"

Astoria winced at the impact, before frowning as she saw both of their things landing on the ground. Crouching down, she started picking them up, making sure to keep her own items in the crook of her other arm. Once everything was collected, she stood up straight again and put them into the bag that was hanging over her shoulder as she probably should have done before she left the dungeons. As the boy made a slightly flustered apology, she shook her head and waved her hand dismissively. “It’s alright, I’m fine,” she said, offering a smile, “we both should probably watch where we’re going next time.

Vincent nodded as he stuffed his book into his bag, along with everything else he had dropped. He was admittedly surprised that the girl was so cordial after he'd barreled into her like that. Most people, Slytherin or not, snapped back and made the situation even more uncomfortable. But this girl was decent, nice even. How peculiar.

"I thought I had the walking and reading down," he said, rubbing the back of his neck, "but I guess we all fall at some point."

Astoria let out a soft laugh as his words, before she replied, “yes, well, I thought I had walking like a person down, too. Apparently not.” Brushing a few strand of hair that had fallen out of place over her ear, she looked over to the doors before back at the boy. “Were you headed outside?” she asked, thinking that perhaps she would enjoy some company. “Oh, I’m Astoria, by the way,” she added, though her tone was a little less enthused as before. When people knew who she was, she had found she was more likely to end up hurt. But she would rather take a chance and make a friend than let the entitled Death Eater kids keep her down.

"Vincent," he replied with a grin. Astoria's tone change went over his head completely, given that he still wasn't entirely buying into the paranoia that came with attending a school dominated by Death Eaters. "And yes I am heading outside. Would you mind the company?"

Nice to meet you,” Astoria said, adjusting the strap of her bag on her shoulder as she took a couple of steps toward the open, wooden doors. “Not at all,” she replied, gesturing for Vincent to start walking. It wasn’t that she was just normally impatient. She was just in a particularly good mood, and for once the weather was actually matching it.

Vincent let Astoria pass through the doors first, following close behind her and searching for a bench or an open space in the grass. "If I may ask, which year are you in?"

Astoria smiled when she saw the boy had started to walk as well, and so she turned and stepped out into the fresh air. It was pretty busy outside, but she saw a section of grass not too far away and began walking toward it. When he asked her what year she was in, she turned to flash him a grin and said, “sixth. What about you?

"You're far out of my league," he joked, laughing at the ridiculousness of crashing into and then befriending a sixth year. She was well on her way out, nearly an adult ready to take on the challenges of real life. And here he was, dumb fourteen year old, sitting on a patch of grass chatting with her like an old friend. "I'm a third year."

Astoria glanced at Vincent when he spoke, before she laughed softly. She wasn’t sure how old he was, but she figured he was a a few years younger than her. “Third year, huh?” she asked as she leaned back on her hands, “in my third year was the Triwizard Tournament. You missed out on that my a year, then.. be glad for that. It was fun to start with, but the end wasn’t so great.

"Did something happen at the end of the Triwizard Tournament?" Vincent realized that it was probably something monumental that everyone knew about, but frankly he'd never done well keeping up with events, current or not.

Astoria eyed the boy, surprised that he didn't know about what had happened during her third year. "Yes," she replied, "one if the Hogwarts champions was murdered by Voldemort, just after his return. It was a really sad day, and also the beginning of everything that has happened since."

Vincent was startled, but then realized that he had overheard his parents talking about it once. The name started with an S, if he recalled correctly. His parents had sent him away before they reached the part about Voldemort, however. That would explain the current chaos. "I have heard people talking about taking sides lately, so I would assume that they were choosing to be with or against Voldemort. Did you take a side?"

Astoria was surprised by his question, as it wasn't something that most people openly discussed. But she that Vincent was quite young, though he was definitely old enough to know what was going on. They didn't have a choice on that matter any more. "Yes, people are talking more of taking sides," Astoria said quietly, "things are getting worse. I have chosen my side, which has caused a lot of problems for my from.. old family friends. But I won't pretend that what Voldemort is doing is okay."

Vincent smiled softly. "I'm glad to know there are people willing to go against expectations to do what's right. God knows we need more people like that... Thank you." Vincent was still having a hard time with seeing the other side of a particular person, someone he'd thought was a sweeter person than her name alluded to. He was glad Astoria was the opposite. It gave him a little hope in humanity again.

"Yeah," Astoria agreed, "there aren't enough people who are willing to do something different from what they're told. And some of the ones who are don't know how." She knew what it was like to be dubbed one of their traitors, and so she wasn't surprised that so few people were prepared to do the same. "But at the moment, the priority is to stay alive," she said softly, smirking with little amusement.

"Only at the moment?" Vincent teased. "For your sake I hope you change your view to a more permanent one." With a more serious tone, he added, "You're right though, about people being unwilling to go against what they're told. Humans are indoctrinated no matter where you look, and so few people realize that they can develop their own ideas. Or if they do, they're too afraid to share them. And with a boss like Voldemort, I wouldn't be surprised if very few people defected. I suppose there weren't many like you?"

"Yes, only for the moment," Astoria said, a amused smile on her face, "because when this all comes to a head.. and it will, lives stop meaning quite so much. The priority then will be the fight because if we lose, we will wish we were dead." The Slytherin chewed on her lip, considering his words. "I had it fairly easy," she said, "I just never truly believed it all. I did my realising in a time where we were at least somewhat safe here. But it's important to remember that the people who didn't know the world before that battle, the people who were brought up like this.. they don't know any better. They've been told that we are the enemy, and it's the truth. Do you think that the Death Eater's kids would be safe either, if they walked into our camp?"
