It wasn't the first time Maria has been in an instrument store to canvass their selection; she promised herself wasn't going to dawdle. She sat with a cello in a back corner of the store, and played, her eyes shut, paying no attention to neither the shop workers, or the other customers.

She'd come in with the intention of buying an instrument, but she'd gotten caught up in just looking at all of them.

Elysia walked through the store with no intention of buying anything. Not like she could afford an instrument from here if she wanted, and Calvin sure as hell wouldn't buy her anything like this. She had her violin at home anyway so there wasn't a problem. She passed some Cellos, brushing the side of each with her hand ever so slightly. She knew she probably- definitely shouldn't touch anything, things would not be good if she accidentally broke one, but it was almost too tempting to just not feel them.

She looks over the harps, and can't help but gently run her fingers across the strings. Harps aren't really her thing, but they look beautiful and sound just a good under the right hands. The strings do sing a bit, and she glances around to see if anyone's giving her the angry stare.

She turns her attention from the cellos when she hears the sound of strings playing, a harp Elysia assumed. When looking around for the person who played the instrument she met eyes with the other girl.

She meets eyes with a girl she recognizes from school--was her name Elysia? They were in the same house, so Will really thinks she should be a bit more sure about her name. Either way, she gives her a shy, awkward wave.

She returns the wave with a polite smile, also recognizing the other girl from school. She's close to positive that the girl's name was Wilmot, learning from classes, but that's mostly all she knew except that they were in the same house and year. It didn't take Elysia long to walk over to her, realizing she was the harp player. "Do you play?"

"Correct." She sends a smile at the other girl, glad that they both had each others names right. "Having a good summer?" Almost after asking, Elysia felt a bit dumb for asking the question. She didn't exactly know what to add and since they usually saw each other only at school, it was the first thing to pop in her head.

She breathes a little sigh of relief, glad she had the name right. "Slow, really. Ready to get back to school if I'm honest." It was, in fact, an entire lie; she still hadn't gotten the hang of wandwork yet and she wasn't looking forward to making a fool of herself in public again. "What about you?"

Has he ever picked up a musical instrument in his life? No, he hasn't. Despite that little fact, Morgan wanders into the store with an air of slight awe about him as his eyes dance over all of the guitars and cellos and saxophones and violins hung on the walls or leaning against stands. Where would he ever start?

This was one store EQ frequented almost as much as Honeydukes. Unfortunately, this time was not planned. His little brother had gotten ahold of his drumsticks and ended up breaking them right in half. He honestly could've strangled him on the spot, but lucky for him, Sadie saved the day with money for a new pair of sticks and ice cream afterward. Now the only delema was which ones to get. EQ stared down at the varied selection with a conflicted expression. There were too many.

He notices the blonde boy around his age staring just as blankly at the instruments, and wonders if he's just as ignorant about them, so he does something quite out-of-character for him: he approaches, a friendly-looking smile plastered on to make a good first impression.

EQ snapped out of his mental debate and looked over to see a shaggy-haired kid that appeared to be about his age. He returned the smile, but then widened his eyes in surprise when the boy spoke. "How did you know?!" EQ asked in an astonished relief, despite the fact that he misunderstood the kid. He thought the boy was struggling between brands and designs just like he was. Poor thing was just delighted that someone understood his position, but little did he know... "I mean how am I supposed to know what to look for when they have gold Pro-Marks and Vaters with blue flame designs?" EQ huffed, totally ignorant to the fact that all of that probably went straight over this poor kid's head. For as clever as EQ was, he could be quite a dunce.

Pro-Marks? Vaters?

It was EQ's turn to be confused. Fire Horns? He followed the kid's gaze to the trumpets. It took a minute, but then he managed to piece together the situation. This kid had no idea what he was talking about. That's what he meant earlier when he first approached EQ. Needless to say, he felt like an idiot. But if this guy could play along with EQ's nonsense, then he could do the same. "Ah, I know what you mean." He answered with a curt nod and kind smile. "The name's EQ by the way."

I blame it on the exhausting trials of labor. She must've been delirious when she signed off on my birth certificate." EQ joked.

Morgan's eyes widen in genuine curiosity - the close he'd ever come to an instrument in his life was his mother briefly mentioning one day that she could play piano.

For once in his life, he doesn't have his earphones on, but he's singing under his breath quietly Born this way. What? He'd had it stuck in his head all morning.

Twyla is planted delicately on a cushioned seat before a grand piano, having sought out this place merely to pass time while Felix was recieving his check-up. She tentatively reached over and brushed her finger tips across the keys, her brows knitting together slightly despite the hesitation. After a moment, she begun to use her left hand to lazily push down on a few notes to construct a small rendition of To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra.

Slowing into a full stop, he leans against a rack for some support as he watcher her play the piano.

The loud thum of each note drowned out the presence of Duke, her other hand carefully moving to properly touch the keys. It had been so long since she played that her fingers felt rusty and like they couldn't quite reach their full potential. Softly and ever so quietly, she begun to sing the lyrics. "There is a house built out of stone," she poured, her eyes closing ever so slightly as she winced at a missed key. "Wooden floors, walls and window sills." Painful memories of her mum filled her head, making the emotion in her tone change the intensity of her words. "Tables and chairs worn by all the dust - this is a place where I don't feel alone..."

He can see it on her face, too, and the cracks begin to deepen. He feels for this girl, even though he doesn't know who she is. He stand around idly, wanting to hear the rest of it.

"This is a place where I feel at home," she drew out with finality, knowing full and well that she couldn't continue the song. As if the lyrics stung, the girl stopped playing the piano and slid around on her chair, snagging her bag that rested beside the seat. That was when her eyes caught on Duke, realization soon dawning upon her and making her freckled face screw up with acidity. "Unless you wanna throw a coin in my hat," she snarked jokingly, "then I suggest you find entertainment elsewhere." She went into full defensive mode and crossed her arms over her chest, more embarassed than annoyed.

Duke grins at her. He fishes something out of his pocket - a coin. He flicks it, sending it flying in her direction. "Easy there, tiger," he chuckles. "You play the piano good. I like it. Are you a pro or something?"

Twyla snagged the coin from the air and placed it delicately between her middle and forefinger, her gaze soon sliding back toward the boy. "I'm more of a thestral than a tiger. Much more dangerous," she warned and slipped the coin into her pocket. "I don't play," she protested her correction, her eyes narrowing carefully to observe him.

"No? Then what were you doing now? Juggling?" Duke retorts, tilting his head, pressing his lips together and giving her an ain't nobody buying that kind of look. "...tigers are more dangerous, I'm willing to bet. Dunno what thestrals are, but c'mon. Have you seen tigers?"

"Whatever helps you forget what you heard or saw," she said smoothly and moved past him, hovering down the aisle a little more with the occasaional glance in his direction. "You can only see a Thestral if you've seen death," she tossed and flicked a strand of her hair pointedly, as if to make a point that she didn't agree with him. "Thestrals are much cooler than tigers, trust me."

"Doesn't mean they're more dangerous, does it?" Duke pauses. In a split second, he makes the decision to leap after her, interested in how their conversation is going to play out. "Death, huh? That's... sad. Can you... see thesters?"

She wrinkled her freckled nose in response to his first question and ran her fingers through some wind chimes. "Thestral. Yes, I have. They're extraordinarily underappreciated," she said and looked up at him. "Which explains why you've never heard of them. That or you live under a rock."

He has a feeling he won that first argument. He counts it as his own personal victory for the day. Although briefly concerned she's a supremacist like that de Luca psycho chick, he has a feeling this girl isn't like that. "I'm a mugger - wait, no, muggle - born. Yeah," he grins, proud of his status. "My brother's probably heard of, um, thes - thestrals? But that's why I haven't. Haven't worried much about the animals here. Why study them now when I start Hogwarts this September, no?"

Twyla seemed relatively unvexed by his blood status and moved around the end of the shelf so that she could peer at him through the objects from the other side. "So this will be a whole new world for you," she said with piqued interested. Somewhere near the front of the store she could hear the bell ring from the top of the door, a soft breeze soon reaching them from the open door. "Are you excited to go to Hogwarts?"

"It will! Or, it is. My moms, sisters, brothers and I moved into, umm, Coral Gates, is it? We moved in last week. They want us to embrace our lives as wizards, y'know what I'm saying?" he explains, quite quickly, too, managing to say it all in one breath. "I'm excited to go to Hogwarts! I hear the stairs move, there's ghosts, and the portraits talk. It's gonna be super fun!"

"Ah, the rich neighborhood," she said before crackling a sly grin, "me and my brother live there with my aunt." She moved backward carefully until she could lean her hip against the shelf and be a little closer. "I can't wait to spend hours on those staircases," she said with an impish smirk, a devilish glint filling her eyes. "You won't be able to get me out of the 24/7 open kitchen either."

"You might live on the rich side... but I live on the other edge. The one that's less pretty," Duke chuckles. He pauses, seeing the look in her eyes, and slowly grinning. "...24/7, you say?"

"I'm definitely not on the rich side either," she said with a slight laugh and then plucked what looked like a traingle from a hook. She shot him another smirk, eyes half lidded with deviousness. "Open all the time, even on holidays. Never ending supply. All you can eat meals and sweets and I hear they even take requests."

He kind of wants to point out she's just called it a rich neighborhood, but supposes it wouldn't do any good. So he grins, big and goofy, and focuses on the 24/7 kitchen. "That sounds hella cool. Guess I'll be doing loads of raids at Hogwarts," he grins. "Aside from the pranks. C'mon, Hogwarts is sounding more and more like heaven by the day."

In her mind, there was two divisions; snobby and very rich and sorta wealthy with status. She was moreso lower on the rich scale at Coral Gates but that didn't really bother her. "Pranks, you say?" she suddenly hyper-focused on that one topic, amusement dancing in her piercing eyes. She could feel a slight itching between her collarbones as her excitement grew. "I'm going to leave a legacy behind with my pranks. Or I fully intend to, at least."

"Well then may the best prankster win," Duke's grin becomes mischievous, and his eyes shine with gleeful determination. Though a good part of him is only joking, he's Duke Lyon-Hawtrey and he'll take on any challenge he sees. And this seems like a hella good one. "What'd you say your name was again?"

Without skipping a beat, she competitively spoke up, "it will be me." Quirking a smile to make her statement seem less intense, Twyla slipped back into her facade easily. "I didn't say - and it's Twyla." She allowed her greenish-blue eyes to stray away from the boy, thoughts endlessly churning in her mind as an evil little twinkle appeared.

"Ooft. Big words for someone so small. Good luck, though. You'll need it," Duke smirks. Even though she's looking away, he shoves a hand forward. "Duke. Can't remember if I said mine, so that's that," he chuckles. Something about Twyla is a little disconcerting, but... he tries to ignore that feeling.

"You don't know anything about my capabilities," she warned, eyes carefully narrowing at Duke. "If you assume, you make an ass out of u and me." That was her aunt's favorite thing to say so a small smirk tugged at her mouth. She plucked a flute from the shelf and inspected it carefully despite having zero interest in playing one.

"And you don't know anything about mine. I'm only offering you some luck. Chill out, mate," Duke frowns, not really liking the way she was talking. "You're doing the same thing as I am, so... I suggest you don't go there," Losing interest in the conversation with the peculiar girl, he turns, about to check out another aisle.

"I think I'm starting to get a picture," she said simply and set the flute down as he moved to another aisle. Apparently he wasn't the only one over the conversation. Twyla skillfully dodged the owner as she slinked out of the music shop.
