Greenhouses and Gardens

Professor Sprout greenhouse 1

The roots and shoots that abound here bear plentiful witness to the enduring legacy of Helga Hufflepuff in Hogwarts. Here in the various greenhouses are cultivated all the exotic plants and plant-based lifeforms which students examine and explore in Herbology. You can find Professor Coryn's office here. The gardens amply supply the kitchens, and in turn tables, of the school, whilst also providing a pleasant backdrop for a casual stroll on a warm evening.

Beware the next Greenhouse over, which is full of the dangerous plants.

Serpentine was just now getting around to her traditional weeks spent over the small garden bed that had been designated to her nearly three years ago. Currently she was putting an all black apron on with white letters that read out On Wednesday We Wear Black over her usual outfit.

It's been a while since Kevin's ventured down here for non-academic purposes; usually he can't stand the place - the plants hate him and it all stinks of fertilizer - but his therapist has recommended he spend some time amongst nature and this is the closest he can come without venturing into Hogsmeade, which he can't be arsed to do right now. Still, maybe it was worth the trip, as the sudden shock of blonde hair and unforgettable leather jacket he spots near the rose garden makes his heart start thudding. "Bloomin' heck," he says as he approaches, eyes a little wide. "Hello, stranger."

The approaching footsteps didn't come as a surprise to Serpentine and she honestly expected to see Tori since that girl seemed to be everywhere - not that she minded it in the least bit. Serpen lifted her blue eyes and was surprised to see Kevin standing there, her confusion mingling with something else. "Oh- Kevin," she said gently and moved quickly so that she didn't have to face him. She sifted through the various packets of seeds. "Hey," she tossed over her shoulder. "What's up?"

It's been months since he last saw her, since they last sat and had a decent talk over a herbal tea or a verbal cookie or something equally quaint. His hospital stay definitely disrupted whatever it was that they had - which is why he's so surprised at how curt that response is. His eyebrows furrow for a quick second, but he tries his best to push any insecurities aside - god, Kev, give the girl chance. "It's been - wow, it must be months, right?" he says, approaching her and peering over her shoulder at the array of plants. "I've not seen you in ages."

Serpentine lifted a particular packet of seeds and quickly read the back for instructions to ensure she got the best quality possible. "Yeah," she agreed with a slight nod of the head, "it's been a while. You look good though -" she felt goosebumps prickle up her back as he neared, "how have you been?"

Something is just... not right. She looks timid, like a dog about to run at the slightest noise. In one fluid movement, he slips from behind her to next to her, turning round so he's leaning against the table and facing her properly. "Better," he replies - and it's clear in his voice and the new roundness of his face that he means it. He looks healthy, there's a nice glow to his skin and his cheeks. "Much better. How are you?"

Serpentine was aware of movement but even more shocked when he was suddenly standing in front of her, the packet of seeds nearly falling from her grasp before she hastily grabbed for it. She finally peered up at him, her blue eyes searching his subconsciously. There is something different - a small horiztonal scar positioned under her eye. It was white and raised and clearly newer. "I've been fine. Mostly just practicing some songs." The brief interaction was cut short by her quick tuck of blonde hair behind her ear and sidestep around the table to gather her little hand-held shovel. "I'm glad you are doing better," she deflected back, twisting the topic to include just him.

Kevin is nothing if not observational - he likes to think, anyway - so he doesn't miss the scratch beneath her eye. It makes him frown for a second, but he doesn't want to pry and scare her away, so he makes a mental note of it and watches her as she skirts around both the table and the topic. "Ah, the songs! I've missed your singing," he comments, a kind smile on his lips. "I've just missed you, to be honest. And all the vegan biscuits you used to make."

Serpentine allowed a sigh to escape her lips as she turned to gaze at him with a dull look that lacked its usual humor. "Kevin, I'm done with all this." She suddenly didn't want to plant her garden and let the bucket settle on the table as she officially levelled off. "I just don't think this friendship is going to work out," she said, her defenses officially up. Did he really even care? "I'm just baffled by the prospect that I have never been mentioned to the closest people in your life," she said and rolled her shoulders. "I get it though - maybe I'm not important enough but don't sit here and treat me like I'm more than just an odd conversation for you."

Well, that certainly knocks him for six. The smile instantly melts from his face and he's left there, mouth agape and eyebrows drawn together, trying to process her words. "I... excuse me?"

"I get it," she said with a slight grind of her teeth, clearly frusterated. "Your other friends are your world and I respect that but when none of them know my name or who I am..." she said in a winded gasp, "and I've been walking around thinking I was more than this. More than someone not worth mentioning." She let out an estranged laugh, her blonde hair falling over her face to conceal the look of utter shame. "It might just be my mistake for thinking I was actually a friend to you. But I suppose everyone can be wrong," she said and watched him. She wasn't going to run this time.

None of this makes any sense to Kev, and it shows in the way his face is all screwed up and his words come out in clipped, short stutters. "I- wha- Serp, I don- you're amazing." It comes out in an exhale, a rush. He means it. "You're one of the most amazing people in my life right now, I don't get why you'd think any less?"

Serpentine walked directly up to him and allowed her nose to wrinkle in order to quiet down a slight sniffle. "Kevin, don't. I bet if I asked six of your best-friends, none of them have heard you talk about me. Tori was looking at me like I was some sort of meaningless affair you have been having behind their backs," she pressed ruthlessly. "If you cared about me at all, you would have wrote that you were in the hospital recovering. You would have told your friends about me if I meant anything to you."

He blinks, suddenly feeling... angry. Unreasonably, of course - but angry, nonetheless. "Serp, I didn't even tell my family that I was in hospital," he says, voice monotonous, almost icy. "And because I don't go parading your name and face to every person I know, it means I don't give a shit about you? What sort of philosophy is that?" He knows he shouldn't feel so annoyed, and that it's definitely born from Serp's insecurities and it's not her fault, but he's allowed to feel. "I lo- Serp."

Serpentine felt a flash of anger in return, her first instinct to push a clay pot over. It smashed at her feet and she suddenly felt tears pour down her cheeks. "What?" she shot back, genuinely wanting to hear what he had to say about it all. "You don't think it's a little weird that no one in your life knows who I am?" she said, her voice raising. "Because guess what! Everyone in mine knows about you! Because you mean so much to me."

"For fuck's sa-" he says into his hands, spurred on by the tears suddenly running down her cheeks. He hates upsetting people. "That's- I- do I have to spell it out or sommat?" Hopefully not, because that would be insanely embarrassing. "Look, I don't know what you think, but I promise you: you are one of the most important people in my life. Please don't think anything else."

Serpentine didn't know if it was her anger and emotion that drown any sense in Kevin's words or she really was that oblivious. "What the hell are you talking about?" she rushed with a whine, sounding something close to a lost child. "You sure as hell don't act like I'm important," she rebutted and crossed her arms, her steps backward uncalculated and dangerous with the high emotion.

At a loss of what to do, Kevin flaps his arms around in confusion, before folding them across his chest. "Well, I- I dunno how to act like that," he stutters. "But you are. So just... I promise."

Serpentine's frusteration only grew and she found herself gingerly tugging at a strand of blonde hair to keep herself grounded. She didn't fight the exhaustion that settled into her bones and encouraged her to look up at him. She felt her blue eyes slip away momentarily as if it pained her too much. "I don't know anymore," she said finally. With tha, she left the greenhouse to cool down.
