Clock Tower Courtyard

250px-Ctc

The Clock Tower Courtyard is a cloister at the base of the Clock Tower at Hogwarts. This cloister seems to be one of the older parts of the castle, and the ceilings and walls are dilapidated. From the Clock Tower Entrance, the other end leads to the Covered Bridge, which in turn leads to the Gamekeeper's Hut, Stone Circle and The Forbidden Forest. As it sits on top of a hill, it is level with the third floor. In the center of the courtyard is a fountain with statues around it. Plants and vines grow on some parts of the flooring and walls.

Hekate and Xavi

Xavi was leaning against the tower itself, with his eyes closed. His jacket was absent from him and he was deep in focus, trying to convince himself of something impossible.

Hekate sprung from one of the stone ledges and landed lithely on her feet, her icy blue eyes fixating on Xavier. Moving toward the cloister in the middle of the courtyard, she kept him in her line of view at all times.

Like a spark, he suddenly felt a presence. He opened his eyes and shifted, spotting Hekate. "Oh, human being," he iterated, getting ready to return to thinking again.

"You say that as if you aren't one," she replied cooly and teetered dangerously close to the cloister. She didn't hesitate to fish into his memories, having already been aware of his existence from other Serpents. "But you are a human, sadly."

"It was sarcasm, my dear," he yawned, blinking slowly. He watched her with lazy pupils, smiling nonchalantly. "Disappointed? Did you want an alien?"

"I know," she replied with a roll of her eyes, seemingly annoyed by his choice of sass. "I read your mind," she replied and begun to inspect her short nails, looking for any impurities and weaknesses - kind like how she searched through the contents of Xavier's mind. "An alien would be far more interesting," she pointed out.

He kept his stare focused on her, strangely unwavering. He was still positioned casually, rather sleepily if you looked at it the right way. He had heard of Hekate. She sounded like a little troublemaker. Apparently dealt in the mind. With the sound of it, she was probably poking around in his head right now. He didn't say anything.

Hekate wasn't a dog that chased in circles with no aim so when the conversation ceased, she respected the silence and leaned back into the stone with a curious quirk of her eyebrow. Xavier was definitely weird but she felt a pang of empathy for his situation with the Serpents and how he got into it all. She was vaguely surprised he didn't want Bella to rot, maybe even a little disappointed too.

He looked at the ground after a good six minutes and pushed off of the wall with his back, standing up straight and slipping his hands into his pockets. "I suppose you're done now?" he asked, silent smile on.

"For now," she said and offered a playful wink despite the lack of a smirk, her ice-blue eyes picking up his subtle movements. "Why aren't you at the Yule Ball?" she suddenly asked, having picked up on a person in his life and the fact that Xavier didn't seem to plan on going. Something just didn't add up correctly. "Don't blame you. He seems to teeter on being bland and wanting adventure and it sounds exhausting." She crossed her arms over her chest and leaned her temple against the stone. "The ball is shite anyway. The food? Even worse."

"For now," he echoed. "Care to give a forewarning next time? I like to clean my head before visitors show up." He rolled his neck, stretching and looked back at Hekate, smiling tilting into a smirk. "If I wanted to dress all fancy, I'd die and ask for a funeral. Oh, he is a handful. His priorties are all over the place, and I don't mind the food. In fact I might even smuggle some snacks later."

"If you think you can hide things from me, I regret to inform you I'll likely find them. Give it time," she said with a slight turn of her right lip; it was like a mix between dangerous understanding and maybe a shred of amusement. "I don't see the point of dressing fancy for your own funeral. The maggots won't care what you wear," she said lowly, which in turn could have been taken as discompassion but Hekate was all about the blunt truth. "I'm sure more than his priorities are all over the place," she slipped in quickly and pulled her infamous pink zippo lighter from her robes. "The elves take requests in the kitchen - what they do make is a mean mac n' cheese."

"That's not what I meant," he chuckled. He gave her a playful wink and turned to the courtyard's entrance. "Customary for a funeral. Not really my decision how they dress me considering I'll be dead."

Hekate plucked a nonexistant wool from her shirt and then peered curiously in his direction. "They can burn my body for all I care," she said with a shrug. Termination by fire seemed like a lovely way to leave this world behind - considering her slight obsession with it.

"You won't really have the choice of what happens to your body unless you say something before you die, y'know?" he pointed out, glancing over his shoulder. He spotted the lighter and raised an eyebrow. "Planning to light something up?"

"Actually you technically can," she murmured and tipped her head to the other side, grey strands soon slipping over her shoulder and reflecting glimmers in the sunlight, "as long as you write it into your will. I suppose it doesn't work for sudden deaths." Hekate crossed her arms over her chest and finally sat down in the grass. "I plan to light a lot of things up," she admitted with the ghost of a content smile.

"Well if you don't mind, could avoid lighting me up then?" he asked good-naturedly. He glanced up at the sky and whistled for a second, holding a note for a few seconds before sighing. "Hogwarts seems to have a much more interesting lot this year."

Hekate set her abysmal eyes on Xavier, her fingers feverishly snapping open the lid before closing it again. She was extremely tempted to take him up on that request, moreso because of her adoration for the flames rather than a deep-seeded dislike. She didn't necessarily find him annoying so that was a plus. "Haven't noticed," she replied, shrugging. "Everyone is boring. I expected more from the other students. How disappointing."

"Well then you'd be more bored if you got here earlier," Xavi said matter-of-a-factly, shrugging somewhat. "Much doesn't go on around here. At least, not anymore..." The trail off was an invitation for a little chaos, that of course, he wasn't going to say he was encouraging. For the sanctity of what remained of his clean reputation.

Before she could even speak, a disturbed little smile played on her lips as she recalled the memories that were already plucked from his head. "I can see," she hummed lowly in agreement before leaning toward him with squinted eyes. "Must have been hard to deflect that little journalist rat?" she geniunely inquired, knowing how ruthless the media could be. "In the end, it's almost sad to see the Serpents on display as a restricted biker club." Hekate set the lighter ablaze and allowed herself to get lost in the flickering flame. "Do me a favor though and squash those runts in the Triwizard Tournament, mm? I need something entertaining to watch."

He smirked seemed a little sinister after that. "Will do," he whistled, finally turning back to her. "Journalist was a bitch. And I suspect she didn't listen to a word I said. But we'll find out once we read the article, won't we?"

"I don't think she could understand a word you said," she pointed out before tipping her head to the side. "They only care about the juicy details. All the important information filters out." She plucked a flower from beside her and allowed the fire to light the petals.

"Figured," he yawned, picking up a smooth stone with his foot and dribbling it, bouncing it on his knee. "Probably heard gang and had her whole story already written in her head."

Hekate glanced over the older male with mild amusement, her intense blue eyes picking up on details only she would pick up on. "How is gang life?" she probed lightly, subconiously tucking a long silvery strand of hair behind her ear.

"Can't really say it's pleasent but really, could be worse," he admitted. "Plus, I'm getting this feeling that I have a lot more eyes on me than I should have."

She rolled her shoulders to dispel tension and glanced at him with an arched brow, "what do you mean?" Hekate felt a nagging grin appear, almost mocking him. "Are you getting paranoid?"

"Not paranoid, annoyed," he corrected. "Has it occurred to people that staring doesn't do anything but aggravate? I'm not that interesting, move on."

Hekate couldn't help but snicker because she totally felt the same way, unable to stop herself from subconsciously nodding before she flicked open her zippo again. "I get stared at because I got into a fight on the train and gained a month of detention before even seeing Hogwarts castle," she said with a shrug.

"Oh, that was you? Nice." He smirked, crossing his arms over his chest. "Must've set a record or something. Already getting detentions at the palce you haven't gotten to yet."

Hekate suffocated her surprise with a smirk, eyes glimmering with immense amusement. It was awesome that he had heard of the little spat. "It was a warm welcoming," she injected sarcastically. "Ever been to detention? Not fun."

"If I have, no one knows." Weird way to spend an hour. Talking to a fourth year pyromaniac who got herself detention before she even got to Hogwarts. Has it ever occurred to him he has problematic friend skills? Yes, but the crazier, the merrier. Although, he doesn't think that's how line the went.

She tucked a strand of silver hair behind her ear and finally stuffed the lighter back into her pocket, using the freedom of her hands to now stretch out. She looked more like a lazy feline than a human stretching, with how fluid and calculated the movements were. "Do you know about the escape routes from detention?"

"You're right," she mused and finally found a comfortable spot in the grass to lounge. "Unless you know Occulmency, I have a one way ticket to figuring out everything there is to know about you. Given, it would take time and patience that I just don't have." The silver-haired female leaned back on the palms of her hand and basked in the rays of sunshin. "Mother dearest never taught me about manners, personal space or patience."

"You didn't need to tell me, kind of obvious you're not exactly a rainbow vomitting unicorn," he deadpanned, clicking his tongue. "But if you don't mind, I'm going to put learning Occulmency on my bucket list."

"Occulmency is perfect against Legilimency," she begun and peered up at the boy from beneath her lashes. "That doesn't mean there isn't other ways to access your mind," she said with a cruel little smile before rolling her shoulders. "It's best to just give in to it. I've been known to help people deal with deep seeded issues when I don't entirely fuck their mind up."

Hekate scoffed and looked off to the side, a small yawn causing her to use the back of her hand to stifle it. "Bye," she said and went back to tinkering with her lighter.
