Black Lake

The Black Lake

The murky, black water spans as far as you can see. The air is tainted with the scent of salt water. Still you remain, perplexed by the foggy beauty of your surroundings. You risk putting your feet in the water, despite the fact that the water is home to a hoard of creatures. The cool water entices you into wanting to take a dive.

This is just on the shore of the lake. To go into the water, go to Merpeople Kingdom.

Leading the class out to the water, she passed out the gillyweed to each student before stepping back, gesturing for the wide-open expanse. "Go for it, just be careful about how long you spend under the water. This will give you about an hour to swim about and hunt for kelpies. Have fun, students."

She was used to gillyweed, and chewed it quickly and without much thought before diving into the water.

She took the gillyweed and ate it hesitantly, as it was her first time using it. She jumped into the water quickly not to feel the awful need for oxygen she had read about.

Finding someone among the plethora of students during her free period was difficult. It wasn't long until Tori gave up and made way to the Black Lake, in search of some peace and quiet. She's currently picking rocks from the shore, before tossing them out onto the lake, watching them until they sank to the bottom of the lake.

The letter was... surprising, to say the least. It had come by owl in the morning and lay on Kevin's bed like some horrible ticking time bomb, just waiting to ruin his day. He was sat there on the shore of the lake, parchment in hand having given up rereading it in the hope that it would magically rip itself into shreds, cease to exist. At least the lake was peaceful. Kevin stared at the surface, rippling and silver, wanting to submerge himself in and not come out.

At some point, the sandwich that she'd also been happily chewing on gets mixed up with the rock she's about to toss out. It doesn't end well, and the horror grows on her expression as she watches her sandwich be engulfed by the waters of the lake. She sighs heavily, as though she's going to mourn the loss of a loved one, and then throws the rock with a little more force than necessary. Shoving her hands into her robes' pockets, she turns to stomp all the way back to the Kitchens. The sight of a familiar blond boy stops her. She has to squint to confirm, but yes, it is him. "Kevin," she says, a little surprised. Of course he's in the one place she didn't think to check.

Well, that voice certainly helps break his concentration, and he squints against the white swathe of the sky when he looks up. Huh. He's not seen her in so long, it's almost like he forgot what she looked like. "Hey, stranger," he says. "It's been ages."

"It has," Tori agrees, and her voice has this tinge to it - sadness, maybe? Or guilt. "How have you been, Kevin?"

The sadness in her voice is easy to pick out to such familiar ears, and Kevin feels something pinch inside of him, probably the guilt. It's his fault, he hasn't kept in great contact with her. "Cold," is his spritely reply; he offers her a smile, one which doesn't quite reach his eyes. "To say I'm from Ireland, I can't keep out the cold."

She frowns. It's sad, hopeless and pained, and she has to admit it suddenly feels a lot like when she was slowly beginning to spiral out of her own control. The possibility scares her, because she knows it's still there and growing with every passing lonely day. So she turns fully towards him and cuts the distance between them, throwing her arms around his torso and burying her face in the crook of his neck, which she's happy to say she now reaches somewhat. "You're not okay, are you?" she asks, quietly, if not fearfully, for she thinks she knows what kind of answer he's going to give.

The hug takes him by surprise, but it's something he desperately needs. She's warm, and he can't stop himself snaking his arms around her waist and pulling her closer, twirling a hand in her hair. "I've got to go back into hospital." Saying it out loud helps, certainly. It's like taking a breath of fresh air.

She wasn't sure what she had expected him to say, but that certainly wasn't it. She sucks in a breath sharply, and holds him a little tighter. "Why?" she asks, her voice barely above a whisper.

In all honesty, he can't quite figure out why they've called him back: the letter is vague, as was his therapist. "Um," he says, mouth dry as he rubs his hand up and down her arm, fingers dancing on her shoulder. "I don't know. Not really. But clearly the doctors think something's wrong."

The concept of losing Kevin again is daunting. She doesn't know what she'll do without him, especially when all her plans for her future had essentially depended on him. Goosebumps erupt on her arms at his motions. "I'll be with you every step of the way," she returns, her voice laced with conviction.

He doesn't know what prompts it, in the end. Maybe it's the calmness of the scene, how the lake isn't stormy and the air is crisp and the sky is clear; maybe it's that, contrasting with the conflict of emotions in his head. All he really knows is that at this moment in time, everything feels right. So maybe that's what leads him to say: "I love you." He can't really believe he's said it when the words actually register, but unlike with Dex, no alarm is triggered. In fact, no panic occurs whatever. He looks down at Tori, the only panic beginning to stir when he realises that she's about to react.

To her credit, Tori doesn't laugh, stand back or show anything akin to disgust. But she doesn't express immediate joy, either. She doesn't know what's prompted him to say this, and she doesn't think she wants to, either, in fears that that answer might not be what she wanted. She truthfully doesn't know how to react. If she's reading the situation correctly, his words aren't exactly platonic; Kevin might really hold love for her. But her confusion prevails. Since when does he harbor these feelings for her? She's a hard person to love, even she recognizes that. "I-" Tori's words die out in her throat before she can even utter them. "Since when?"

Well, at least it isn't a total rebuttal. The feeling arising in Kevin's chest isn't quite relief, but something of that ilk: maybe it's just pure, shining hope. Still, the question is amazing. He laughs a breathy, almost sarcastic huff as the corners of his mouth turn up. "Since forever, I guess." Then he pushes further, not wanting to waste the moment whilst it's here. "It's always been there. It's only recently that I've actually realised it."

She doesn't realize she'd essentially stopped breathing until she exhaled, long, shaky and tired. This was - this was something. She hadn't expected it, not now and certainly not from him. It all just seemed too good to be true. It's why she looks so hesitant and her steps forward are so tentative. She wants this, she does, but she's afraid this is a dream that'll go up in smokes the second she makes a move. Regardless, dream or not, she takes a leap of faith, because in reality - at this point, what does she have to lose? Even if it's a dream, even if Kevin regrets it in the near future (which is likely, in her opinion), Tori is at a point she's willing to take this risk. So she surges forward, brushing her lips against Kevin's before she cut the (very) small distance, kissing him softly.

His heart kind of starts hammering, at a hundred times a second, thrumming like helicopter blades behind his ribcage; he hasn't felt like this in a very long time. If it was up to him he'd stay here forever, in the cool air of March, kissing Tori - but it isn't, and he can't. So, after a few seconds, he pulls back. Not violently, so she knows she's done nothing wrong. "I can't," he says, softly, voice barely above a hum. "I'm only just going to leave again soon."

She smiles, sad and broken but not with disappointment - she'd expected him to pull away, as soon as he could. Hell, she would too, and that takes a lot to recognize. "I figured," she admits. "I'll be there with you every step of the way," she reiterates her earlier words, to emphasize the point that he wouldn't be alone. "As friends, or more, or nothing at all. But I'll be there."

The fact she takes it so well takes him by surprise - pleasantly, but by surprise nonetheless. A part of him worries that she blames herself, so he says, "If it was just - another time, y'know?", tightening his arm around her shoulders. "Talk about a great end to the school year."

Unbeknown to Kevin, the hope he'd given her, followed shortly by the rejection, leaves her exposed to this crushing, aching sensation in her chest. She truthfully doesn't know what to do with herself. She doubts she can come back from this - from that kiss. From knowing that her feelings are reciprocated. She feels like something inside her breaks when she puts on a (hopefully convincing) smile. "We still have like three more months of school."

Unfortunately he isn't a mind reader, so he can't feel the crushing weight that just landed on Tori, and he stupidly keeps his eyes on the lake. "I'll be spending it all in hospital, though," he sighs. "I'll probably miss any parties we have and all the Quidditch matches and -" Quickly he shuts himself up: nobody likes to hear self-pity more than himself. "Sorry."

Tori tries to clear her expression, hoping to steer herself into a more positive position. She shrugs lamely when he apologizes, and forces a smile. "No, it's fine. Let it all out," she encourages softly. Realization dawns. "Wait - you're leaving now?"

That's the thing he hoped would go away; with a sigh, he nods, solemn. "Someone's tipped off the hospital and told them that I'm not coping," he says, through slightly gritted teeth. "Despite the fact I feel better than ever. I think."

She runs her hand through her hair, tugging it out of sheer frustration. Someone had f-cked this up for her, and it irritated her beyond belief. "I swear to God," she mutters irritably.

He rubs her shoulder, probably trying to quell his own nerves more than hers: his breath crystallizes in the air. "Don't worry," he says, a small smirk gracing his lips. "I'll try and act as normal as possible with the therapist."

She scoffs. "Those hijos de la gran putas can smell anyone's bullsh-t from a mile away," she mutters. More notable is the way she doesn't look at him, like she's avoiding his gaze, if the way her eyes flutter everywhere except towards him is any indication.

The professor was standing at the side of the lake, dressed warmly, silver eyes fixed on the setting sun. She had somehow got stuck with watching the students staying for Christmas, and was personally not enjoying it, but the rumor mill conveyed the words of one of her badgers dealing with some health issues with an eagle student watching over them.
