Ground Floor Storage Room

Wikia DARP - 4th floor storage

In a dreary corridor, overlooked by even the more discerning rats, squats this last refuge of long-forgotten trinkets and broken baubles, the rug under which are swept the accumulated flotsam and jetsam of centuries of students, coming and going in tides. Those personal artefacts, those keepsakes they failed to keep safe, the wafting winds of misfortune have buffeted into this place and then abandoned. Save for the occasional Christmas reveler, and the caretaker on those nights when too many things went bump, it is unlikely anyone has set foot in here since flairs were the height of fashion, and, with the exception of a single, dripping, self-perpetuating lamp, flower is about the only power in this place.

The ball has been going on into the early hours of the morning and Adrian is hopped up on sugar and lots of dancing, so he's disappeared to try and find the bathroom to splash his face with cold water and loosen his tie. Somehow he's managed to end up in a storage room in his hyped-up stupor, so he's just kind of looking around like he's lost, trying to figure out how to get back to the ball.

Cordelia's just come to a very important realisation in a teen girl's life: boys ain't shit. Or rather, Gideon Fawley is a fuckboy who only asked her to the ball because he has a giant poster of her grandmother above his bed. Like, yeah, Celestina Warbeck wasn't bad to look at back in the day, but she's over a hundred now. What teenage boy likes that? She's been in this storage room for a while now, calming herself down before she hexes someone, and has just about decided to swear off boys forever like some Greek virgin goddess when one stumbles in looking lost. Clearly it's a sign. "Hi!" she exclaims, all previous anger dissipating to be replaced by a wide smile. "I'm Cordelia."

The sudden voice nearly scares him out of his fancy red suit, but when his eyes adjust to the shadows and he sees the face of the girl who is currently sat in the corner, he mirrors her grin with drunken ease. "Ma'am," he smiles, giving a mock bow. "Not in the ball, enjoying yourself?"

There's a glimmery sheen of sweat across Adrian's forehead that kind of answers the question for her, but he nods in reply anyway, laughing at her curtsey and her overall enthusiasm. She's cute. "It is. But there's free food and punch and good music, so I'm sure I can make do. You, however," he adds with a point. "I refuse to believe you don't have a date."

Her first comment takes a few seconds to register and his brow furrows - grandma? - before he gets distracted by her compliment. Or he'll take it as one, at least. "Aye, I do, but I think she lowkey hates me and is only there for the free snacks. Not that I blame her."

Her enthusiasm again kind of startles him - okay, now he has two dates apparently? With a smile, Adrian tries to erase the image of Rihanna hanging him from the Astronomy tower by his nutsack when she finds out he's officially a two-timer and thrusts his hands into his pockets as he approaches her. "It's Adrian. And you are, my lovely lady?"

Oh my God, did someone just recognise him? Considering he comes from one of the most infamous families in Quidditch history, it really hasn't happened to him enough, and the sheer delight shows in his face when he breathlessly replies, "The only and only," with a dazzling grin. "I'm - thanks. Yeah, that's me."

Truthfully, she only knows that because Celestinus is a Schmidt fanboy but Adrian seems so genuinely happy she recognised him. It's cute. "So you're a budding Quidditch star?" she asks, smile just as delighted as his. Someone who understands coming from a famous family! It's clearly fate.

"You must be freezing down here," he comments, feeling a lick of cold air against the back of his neck which makes his hair stand up a little. Before realising it he's pulling off his suit jacket - which is heavy, multi-layered because hey, he can afford it - and handing it over. "At least keep this until you come back so you don't freeze to death."

The coat catches her by surprise. How did she manage to find the only considerate boy in this school, completely by accident? "Oh my gosh, thank you!" she beams, slipping the jacket on over her dress. "Chivalry isn't dead! Are you sure you won't get cold though? Because I wasn't really that cold yet, so you should take it back if you are. Can't have a future Quidditch star dying of hypothermia, can we?"

Now he is sans jacket he is officially fucking freezing, but he's made someone smile, so it's worth it, right? He'll try and convince himself of it, anyway. "If I'm going to be flying hundreds of feet in the air, in English weather, I think I need to get used to the cold, don't I?" he grins. "It's nothing. It suits you! Red is definitely your colour."

"...Good point," she says after a pause. "Still, dying of hypothermia isn't really my idea of a fun Christmas. You sure you don't need it back? You're shivering," she says, then her eyes light up with an idea. "Wait, we have magic for this! Duh," she hits her forehead with the palm of her hand before casting lux lucis to conjure a small handheld flame that she passes over. "Thanks! I've always preferred yellow, but red is cute too."

The flame is little but powerful, and Adrian feels the tip of his nose and the high points of his cheeks instantly flush with warmth as she hands the flame over, throwing yellow light over the pair of them. "Maybe meet in the middle and try orange," he offers with a smirk, cupping the flickering light in his hands.

Cordelia adjusts her position on the table, crossing her legs like she used to during muggle assembly. "Hm, okay," she agrees, nodding and leaning forward to be closer to the flames. "But it has to be the orange you see on old muggle cars. That's by far the best shade."

Having grown up in an entirely magical household, he doesn't know what shade of orange she's talking about, as he's not very familiar with old Muggle cars. The bemusement shows on his face as he says, "I've never seen one, to be honest. I'm imagining sunset orange, like when you go to one of the towers at dusk."

"Sunset orange is cute I guess," she says diplomatically. "But old muggle cars are so cool, though they can be pretty loud and smell bad a lot of the time. The orange I mean is like-" she snaps her fingers, having forgotten the word. And she'd been doing so well. "What's that word, where something catches fire and turns black? It starts with a b."

"Like... more orange than rust?" she hazards, not really sure how to convey this specific shade. That's when her face lights up, as it always does when she solves a problem, and she starts looking for her phone on the table beside her - except it's not there. "I'll show you - wait. Do you see a phone anywhere? The case has a painting of sunflowers on it."

A more thorough search does nothing to reveal the device, and by the time he’s moved some boxes and lifted some crates, Adrian’s had to undo his top button and loosen his tie to try and cool down. This was a nice dress shirt, too. “Tell you what, love,” he huffs, straightening up. “I think your phone has fallen into another dimension. That or someone’s playing tricks on us.”

His ears perk up at the mention of her interning - not that he could ever dream of applying himself, seeing as he does not have the brains for such a career. Give him a ball and a bat any day. “I wouldn’t so much say brawn,” he chuckles, looking down at his skinny frame before throwing her a kind smile. “But I’m flattered nonetheless.”

He has to hide his growing smirk behind another box search, which dredges up only moth balls and one old shoe. “I play Beater mostly,” he replies. “Good with a bat, if I say so myself. And trust me - I’m not. Unless you want proof.” He should feel bad with Rhi upstairs, waiting for him. He doesn’t.

At first he thinks he’s misheard her, but then she’s sitting there expectantly and Adrian realises that shit, he’s actually got to follow through with this.

The fact he's actually doing it catches her by surprise - Merlin, this boy has balls - and she barely stops herself from bursting into laughter. But no, that would be rude, so she claps a hand to her mouth, mock-scandalised. "You're a scoundrel and a rogue!" she exclaims, dramatic as ever.

His eyebrows fly up at such a challenge. He sure has ten Galleons to spare. "I'll take that bet," he says, standing upright. "Raise you ten Galleons that Gryffindor kicks Ravenclaw's ass. Especially with Schmidts on the team." He neglects to mention that his sister has more fun controlling a little Italian plumber through a platform game than she ever will chasing a Quaffle, because it's the most depressing thing in the world.
