Chlo carried her books all in one hand, allowing the other to dangle at her side, her bangles occasionally clinking together. It was a pleasant day and she had some free time, she had passed by the Gazeebo in the court yard on her way, and had found it to be empty, she had been bemused by this, but had ventured on, hoping to do some studying by the aestheic beauty of the Lac Diamant. The walk had taken a while, and when she arrived she was slightly out of breath. Chlo leant lazily against a post and looked up. It was a beautiful sight, the lake had been frozen over the christmas season but was now alive again, Chlo could even hear the rushing of the waterfall close by.



She ventured slightly down the path to her left following the sound of the waterfall, she loved to swim by there, and though she didn't have time to indulge in that today she still wanted to see it. As always she was awed, the Beauxbatons was a beautiful place, and it took everything in her power to walk away from the waterfall and back the way she had come.

Settling on the grass 5 minutes later she open her book, and began to read. Chlo looked up suddenly hearing giggling, and excited laughter. Two girls and one boy stood on the pier, it seemed they were glad to be back also. Chlo looked back down at her book, and wondered whether any students might join her, she did love the company after all.

Belle had awoken the next morning rather early, the dreams she had been having slowly faded as she came back into reality. She lay there trying to think what it had been she had dreamed about but as often dreams do, this was was fading fast . . she only knew that Astrid and Tommy had featured in it.

Knowing she would not be able to get back to sleep she rose and got dressed. It was a bit early for breakfast but she did not want to stay copped up in here. Nor did she want to go back and work on her lesson that was laying in her office. Going back there would only serve to remind her of what had gone down last night.

She made her way from the castle thinking about what she had told Tommy. She had not spoken about her sister to anyone, not even Luke knew and she had been with him for 6 years. Yet she had blabbed it out to a near perfect stranger last night. A perfect stranger that had kissed her. She kept telling herself it had only been the moment but she so wanted to believe it was more. Then why had he run out and apolgised she asked herself as her feet took her outside and down the path to the gazebo.

So deep in thought was Belle that without knowing, she took a wrong turn and by the time she realised where she was , she decided it was too late to turn back. The sound of laughing voices had been what had alerted her to look up to take notice. Some students out for an early morning swim no doubt grateful the weather was finally warming up. She gave them a wave but did not disturb them. A funny thought crossed her mind as she crossed to a path that would take her to the waterfall. If they had Hogwarts they would never have dared to swim in the lake.

She had forgotten just how beautiful it was down here. What was it now . . 10 years . . nothing much had changed she thought as the waterfall came into view. A young gril Belle recognised from class was sitting on the grass reading a book.


"Bonjour Miss Aurelis", beautiful morning is it not . . I hope you enjoyed my intro lesson . . and I hope you wander back for my first lesson Belle said to her as she neared. It was sure beautiful here and the sound of the falling water in the background was soothing.

Chlo kicked her legs trying to get comfortable, but did not want grass stains on her uniform, it was for this reason taht she did not hear the footsteps coming along the path, but looked up when her name was called. Her eyes bugged. Avalyne was right, these teachers did leave the office. Perhaps they were not vampires after all.

"Mademoiselle Belle." She said jumping up suddenly and curtseying. She felt foolish, like she had embarassed herself, and her cheeks flushed."You look lovely today." She appraised. "You are right, it is a beautiful day, the weather is goregous for January." She confirmed smilingly.
"Your first lesson was amazing." Chlo gushed unexpectedly, hissing at herself, "I really enjoy learning new things, so I hope I didn't embarass myself to much." She chuckled.

Chlo rocked back on her heels, and she remembered what she had wanted to ask the professor.

"Mademoiselle," She began, "Avalyne tells me you are hoping to start a potion, andI was wondering if I mate be able to join..." She trailed, she as never good at talking to teachers, but in her defence the previous lot had not been very forthcoming with her.

Astrid walked down the hill wringing her hands, she had not slept well at all that night, and though you could not see it on her face, her body felt it, and every part of ached. She continued to walk building up the pace. She was wearing a cream dress today, and in her hand she carried the list of 5 mens names, and every so often she would peer down at it, as if she would instantly know who her Father was. And then Tommy was on her mind again. Though truth be told he had not been off it.

She scrunched the list up and tossed it in frustration... It might have been more dramatic had she not written the names in her notebook, nor poured her heart into after last night. She groaned, glad that no students seemed to be in the immediate area. It was still rather early.
Whilst she wasn't as irrational as she had been the previous evening, she felt hurt and anger like no other. No man that could make her feel this way about herself, or in general was good for her... And how dare he talk of her life like he knew anything of it! All he had asked her had been regarding her Father, and it had been quench his own thirst. He missed his old life, and he was using her past to have some semblance of it... She did not want his help anymore. She had decided this last night, after feeling the surge of fear at being reunited with the man that had rejected her before she was even born. No. She was happier with the only man in her life being her Grandfather.

She shook her head. No tragedy? She laughed harshly. Some people just didn't walk around holding signs screaming victim. She wrapped her arms around herself as if to defend some attack, though she knew it was pointless. The blow had already landed. She closed her eyes and felt a tear trickle down her cheek, she wiped it away quickly, and continued to walk on.

Just how far was this pier? Had it always taken this long to get there? Great now she was frustrated with the route. Was she a fool of a woman? An ungrateful witch? She chuckled, was witch meant to be an insult in this sense. She laughed louder. She was not ungrateful, she had traded lessons for his help... Ungrateful? Far from it.

And his comment about her not being right for the Ministry. She mulled that. She had all the credentials that he had, true she had not taken that path for anything more than what if offered her but she had fought too. She too had receieved her own scars. She too had lost someone. She shut her eyes.. against the harsh light of the morning sun, and kept walking. She let out a sigh. The wounds he left would not be so easy to heal. It had been cold of him to talk about her fear of love... She had always been careful about that. Never touching unhealed wounds, but he had ignored that.

She never wanted to become so afraid of love, her heart thudded painfully against her chest. She was fine with intimacy to and extent... She was more than able to kiss Tommy... but he hadn't meant it. Not really, she had just been some distraction for whatever had hurt him to begin with... She often found that was where she fitted into things like this.

Astrid looked up suddenly as if to become aware she was not alone in the world, and saw Belle and a student.

"Morning ladies, I apoligise zat I cannot stay to talk, I 'ave rather been wanting to visit ze old pier" She said smiling sadly, and began to walk quickly towards the empty pier, reaching it quickly.

Belle did not mean to startle the young girl but she must have for she jumped up in quite a hurry. She did look though when the girl curtseyed . "oh Miss Aurelis. . " she laughed "You do not have to curtsy and I am glad you enjoyed the first lesson . . many of the student find learning about ingredients boring but it is important one knows much about the ingredients. " she said ignoring the fact Chlo had told her she looked lovely. She was sure that was not the truth for she was decked out in her old jeans and a sloppy joe in readiness for herbology later. She did not hold to wearing robes, for her they only served to get in the way.

"I hear you did well in your other classes too and no you are not embarrassing yourself, you should be proud of your achievements. I hope to see you in Magical Botany soon and I do have my first practical lesson ready if you interested. " she told the young student. It was refreshing to find one so young that was so polite.

Just then Astrid walked up and Belle knew immediately something was wrong. First off she was not her usual self and second she did not stop to talk. Now that was strange she thought for since knowing Astrid she knew how much her friend liked to talk. Belle watched her walk toward the old pier thoughtfully.
"It's been a pleasure Chlo but if you would excuse me please " she told the girl and turned to follow Astrid down to the pier.

"Astrid " Belle said as she neared and came up beside her friend "What is wrong my friend. I hope it is not me . . I am sorry I did not get to catch up with you last night but I had so much homework to mark. It is murder having to do two classes. I hope they find a botany professor soon, if I keep this up it will wear me out " she said and smiled. She was not about to tell her that Tommy had dropped in. The more she thought about it the more she decided he had just dropped by to ask about lessons and somehow they had ended up telling each other about their darkest thoughts. The kiss was nothing . Something that had happened in the moment and he had regretted it immediately. She banished it from her mind as she turned her focus back on Astrid.

"Astrid please talk to me, I hate to see you like this . . " Belle pleaded with her . . "I can tell you more of Luke if you want. "

Astrid leant against the rails of the pier and took a deep breath in. It truly was as beautiful as she remembered. Though perhaps wearing heels out here wasn't her greatest decision ever. Astrid turned suddenly at the call of her name.

"Belle, please do not zink zat I would be upset with you." She smiled, leaning against the pier again, the wind bowing her hair into disarray. She liked moments like this... sometimes. When she wasn't so carefully put together.

She beckoned Belle closer. for she knew that occasionally the wind could carry ones voice further than to the recipients ears.

"He kissed me... A proper deep kiss. My first." She sighed. She never like to let anyone get close enough to her heart to hurt her, and had been about to mention Tommy's drinking, but did not want embarass him; so left the part out."And zen when I decided zat 'eading up to is chamber was not a good idea... he said such 'urtful zings..." Astrid closed her eyes tight. She never cried in front of people... ok maybe twice in her life. When her Grandfather started losing his memory she had cried in front of his healer, and then when...

"I am not destined for love Belle." She chuckled. "Tell me about Luke... And then perhaps I can share some things with you, afterwards. If you like. I feel you do not know me as much as I know you." She whispered, removing her cloak, so she was standing in just her dress. She walked to the other side of the pier and smiled and the pointed.

"In my time students would meet her for romantic rendevous." She chuckled, harsher than she had meant to.

Tommy had only stepped outside when the Owl swooped down on him . "What are you doing Pandora " he yelled at the bird as it came to halt on the ground. The bird looked at indignantly and held out is foot. Tommy bent down to retrieve it. . no doubt the bird had gone to his quarters and found him gone and had searched the castle to find him.

"Just wait in my office next time " he laughed giving her a scratch behind her hed. She hooted and pecked at his and affectionatey. "OK off to Owlery with you, go get somethign to eat. If this needs a reply I will do it later " he told the bird then watched her as flew off.

They had been together for a long time now. He had got her as presnt when he had first started school. 16 or 17 she would have to be he realised with a start, she was getting old.

Tommy stood up and continued walking as he unfolded the note. It was from Mary and it was a list of the 5 names he had sent her yesterday, though this time they had notes attached to each name. He gave a sigh . . it only served to remind him of last night and how he had treated Astrid. "Bloody Hell, I really screwed that up didn't I " he sighed as he kept walking.

he kept reading what Mary had written and found from her notes that he could iscount three of the names. That was because two had gone to work in the creatures separtment and the one had gone to Muggles Misuse. But two of them had been given a job in the Law Enforcement department. It didn't say what they were being trained for, just that's where they had gone.

Mischa Akylas Knoylls and Dareois Henry Duboir . . he looked at the two naes blankly. Neither man stil worked there accoridng to Mary's notes. Mischa had lasted 4 years before leaving and Dareois had left abotu 5 years ago. Somethign to do with his health but there was nothing on why Mischa had left.

A little closer he thought but still a long long way off. It might have just have been 20 names . . Damn he had thrown that notebook of hers back at her and damn he had told her that it was over. It was not over . . and he knew it . . this mission was what he need to keep his sense alive . . he knew that . . if he could not continue in that which he had been trained in he would stagnate.

He would just have to go and grovel to her, there was no other way. She needed him and damn he needed herto teach him french. He gave another sigh and shoved the letter in his pocket. He had still opted for his black jeans, black boots and a long black coat but today he had decided a white shirt was in order.

His feet took him down a path tha tled to lawn and across from the lawn stood a gazebo. A peacock strutted across the lawn and he stood still for a moment as he watched it. No one had told him there were peacocks here. He smiled and kept walking. It was so peaceful out here, nothing like it had been at Durstrangs. He felt good for the first time since gettign up buit it did not last long as he came down another path and came into view of the lake.

Out on pier stood two women and he knew who they wereeven though they had their backs to him. Belle and Astird. . together . . crap, this can't be good he thought. He had forgotten they were good friends . . . they were probably down there telling each other about last night. Tommy suddenly had a funny feeling in his stomach. Tommy suddenly did not want to be here.

He stood for a moment looking out at them, grateful they had their backs turned, then he simply turned on his heels and went back the way he came.

((ladies I would appreciate it if neither of you saw me))

Astrid beckoned her forward but Belle did not want to move forward. That was water out there and Belle did not like water. She had never learned to swim but it was more than that . . she had a real fear of large bodies of water, one that she probably still would have even if she could swim. But at least Astrid seemed not to be upset with her so she stepped a little forward, but she could not bring herself to lean against the rail.

"He? " Belle asked , her mind working furiously as Astrid started talking. she had to be talking abut Tommy, he was the only male adult around for miles. That can't be right she thought. . . Tommy had kissed her . . yes but he left in a great hurry. she told herself . . straight to Astrid it seemed.

Her mind reeled at this revelation . . a passionate kiss and an invite to his chambers. Oh my she had certainly read him wrong. No wonder he had run off last night. Whatever feelings she may have thought she had for him were squashed in that moment.


"maybe he just did not like being rejected, did you kiss him back . . " she asked thinking at least she could be happy for Astrid. fights were good . . her and Luke had plenty of them but oh what fun it was to make up. Belle knew anger quite often meant they liked each other.

"Stuff Luke . . he is past . . this is now . . tell me more Astrid and stop this nonsense you do not deserve love. It's obvious he likes you. " she told her as Astrid moved to the other side of the pier.

Astrid pushed herself off of the rails and turned back around to face her friend. She shook her head, her hair falling around her, and ran her fingers through it, tugging at it softly.

"Oui. Tommy." Astrid confirmed, fixing her hair and wringing her hands again, simply for something to do. Astrid sniggered at the notion of it being her rejecting him, but felt immediately guilty.

"Sorry. No. It wasn't zat... I. I kissed 'im back... and zings were fine, but I just wanted to take zings slow, so I sat 'im down, brought 'im some coffee over..." Astrid took a breath to steady herself. "Ze zings he said." Astrid shook her arms as if to clear the whole situation. "He no longer wishes to 'elp me search for my Father either." She added, beginning to walk away from the end of the pier to a bench nearby.

"No he does not like me... he used me and my quest to find my Father, so he could have some semblance of 'is Auror life. I am not anyzing to 'im." She said simply, "And after last night, he is no'zing more zen my colleague." She added, crossing her left leg over her right, and leaning back into the bench.

Astrid tapped the bench encouraging Belle to come over with a warm smile, "Tommy is in my past now too.. Tell me about Luke." Astrid said pleadingly. She wanted to talk about anything other than what happened last night, but she knew that would probably not happen.

In her past Belle thought and nearly snorted. Why do you keep on abou thim then she thought as she followed Astrid tot a bench that was a little further away from the water. Belle felt a little more secure now as she sat down beside her friend.

"He does not seem type to let things go, perhaps you misunderstood him. " Belle said. Why did her friend not see it. It was the classic mistake in any relationship. The fight the words, then the apolgies and the make up. "You should go talk to him. I bet he is feeling just as miserable this morning " Belle said as she looked out over the water. Why did she hate it so much she wondered.

somehow she could not see Tommy telling her he was not going to help. Not after what they had talked about last night. Honour and Fate she had got from it all . . and a desire to never fail. Giving up did not seem quite right when it came to Tommy Eriksson.


"Toosh . . Tommy is not in your past . . he is here and now and if you stop wallowing in your misery he can be in your future. You like him don't you . . and he seems to like you, I mean he kissed you and invited you back to his chambers. . . so what if he didn't like you saying no, personally I think you did the right thing. But there must be something there to have made him ask i the first place. " Belle was trying her hardest to get Astrid to see sense here. If it had been her he had been interested in, no matter what the fight. . she would not give in so easy.

The morning was moving on, Belle would need to head to the Greenhouses soon. She had organised it so all her Botany classes could be in the morning then afternoons were spent in the dungeons with her potions classes. It meant for a long day but Belle did not mind .. . it was not as if she had anything else to do with her time.

"we should get back for classes . . . " she said and gave a sigh. "I'll tell you about Luke on the way but you gottta promise me you won't give up Tommy that easy " she said to her friend as she stood up and gave a stretch. She would need to stop by her office and grab the lesson plans Belle thought as she started toward the castle .

"I dunno what else I can tell you about Luke though. . what do you wanna know " she said for basically Belle had already told Astrid the story .

Astrid stood up, and began to follow Belle. She figeted where she stood, she just couldn't stand still, and found that walking helped that.

"I will 'ave to got to my office also." She confirmed, looking upwards at the sky resolutely, and brushed a few stray hairs from he face. The sky looked pretty clear and she wondered whether she might be able to see the stars out here late at night, and mentally added that to a list of things she wanted to do.

"Tell me Belle, 'ow do I go to 'im. What do I say exactly. I cannot bare to see 'is face." No she felt for sure that he would have to come to her. At least an apology on his part was needed first. She was stubborn like that.

Astrid chuckled remembering something Tommy had said "He said I was an ungrateful witch... I zink it was supposed to be an insult on ze witch part." She smiled sadly, "maybe he is not my 'past,' but to be perfectly 'onest. He isn't my anyzing Belle." She answered, looking down at her feet.

"He only kissed me because he was tipsy... he came into ze lounge and started drinking... by ze end of ze evening. So was I." Astrid admitted embarassment setting in. "I know eet is so unprofessional, and I ofcourse will never let eet 'appen again.." Astrid paused, turning to look at Belle, and then smiled when she confirmed she had indeed done the right thing in not returning to Tommy's chambers.

"I wanted to.. go with 'im zat is. But I wanted eet to be when he was 100% sober." She paused again, and walked in silence for a while.

"I cannot promise anyzing Belle." She said truthfully, nearing the Palace. "We should probably get to our classes, but... would you meet me later after lessons... perhaps in my office, or your office... or ze lounge?" She asked, hoping Belle was not too busy.

Now the truth was coming out, Belle thought as they made their way back to the castle. She gave a laugh at one particular comment "it sounds like a beauty of a fight " she said when Astrid had told her about what he called her "And what did you call him " she added.

So they had drank a little alcohol . . how cost she thought.. all she he had shared was a cuppa. Loosened off the inhibitions . . feelings they had both buried that had risen and had culminated in a kiss . . and a rather passionate one from Belle's understanding. Perhaps she had agreed to go back with him to his chambers then changed her mind . . she had said she would rather have done it sober. Which meant she had wanted to with or without the drinks.

Belle gave a sigh . . so Tommy had chosen and yes she was a little disappointed but she was happy for her friend. Astrid deserved to be happy and in time she was sure her and Tommy would work it out. To her this was a little lovers tiff.


"It will work out Astrid . . I am sure it will " she told her friend. They were nearing the castle now and Belle gave another sigh "yes we will meet up after class, though my last one does not finish until 6 . . Then I have to mark lessons but I can bring them down to the lounge . . I can't very well ask you to come to my office, it's a bit crowded at the moment " she laughed thinking of the couch that still dominated the room. She would have to do an extendable charm on the place . . as much as she like it it she knew leaving where it was meant she would not have room to work.

" I will see you later and you better be in a better mood by then " Belle said with a smile then with a wave made her way into the castle and immediately went to her office down in the dungeons.

Astrid wrinkled her nose. She had never used ever considered there to be beauty in an arguement. She absolutely detested them, but then, perhaps that was because she always found herself in them. She nodded anyway, a ghot of a smile upon her face, and contnued to push herself forward, keeping up with Belle.

"Call 'im?" Astrid asked, thinking back, she was sure she hadn't said much, infact as far as she could remember, she hadn't even raised her voice. "I told 'im his Mother would be dissapointed with 'im.. zat is all." She was certain that was all she had said, nothing to prompt such harsh words from him. She shrugged, what did it matter now, words had flown and there was no changing that.

Astrid watched Belle , wondering desperately what she would be thinking of her actions, but found that Belle's face betrayed no emotion. She turned her head and stared ahead, her mind racing.

"I do not care if eet works out, only zat we can be civil for ze sake of ze students, and our jobs." She replied, though she knew that it wasn't the whole truth, she bit the inside of her cheek, and took a deep, audible breath.

"Ok, zat is fine... I will see you zen... ze Lounge eet is... but please know you are always welcome in my office." She added, putting her cloak back on, and tightening it.
She smiled at her friends optimism... she too hoped she would feel better by the time they met again. Astrid waved as Belle set off to her office, and after a seconds hesistation Astrid did the same, hoping she wouldn't be terribly late.
