Hyde Park

Hydepark

A light, glinting snow falls slowly from the sky. The street lamps illuminate the walkway. The stars shine brightly above you, the moon casting a pale glow over everything. The grass is blanketed with snow and the sweet, jazzy sounds of music sound throughout the park. The chatter of Muggles in the ice-skating rink are faint as you stroll around the rest of the park.

There was something comforting about being in muggle London; a home away from home. There was a simplicity about muggle life that he missed so, whenever he got to experience it, he always relished in the experience. What made it even better was, for this weekend getaway to the muggle side of Britain, Hephaestus had accompanied him. Now, with the tables turned, Leaf felt a little more confident in showing his other half the world he grew up in. "Hyde Park is a big deal or something," He said as they walked down one of the paths that littered the park, "I don't really remember why though - big cultural attraction, maybe."

Festus looked around the park, unimpressed by the "big cultural attraction". The only thing worth while there was the man standing beside him. "Muggles are amused by the most mundane things." He muttered, trying his best to keep any disgust out of his voice. Hephaestus had been working really hard to embrace muggle ways for Leaf, but it was so hard. He's spent eighteen years of his life hating Muggles and Mudbloods, and now he's in love with one. He's still adjusting to say the least. Though the park didn't thrill him all that much, being with Leaf did. That's what's important.

"There's probably more significance to it," Leaf said, trying to rectify the impression of the park he had given off but, truly, he knew very little about it so with all the will in the world, he wasn't the best person to be selling it - especially to a pure-blood of Hephaestus' nature, "I just... don't know about it." He fell silent for a few seconds, trying to figure out how to move on; did he want to jab back and say wizards were and still are fascinated with muggle things? Or did he want to just move on altogether? The latter seemed better to which Leaf perked up, "We could go ice skating? There's a rink around here somewhere apparently and that could be fun?"

Festus realized his mistake rather quickly, his eyes widening in concern. He didn't mean to offend him, and he mentally scolded himself for being so judgmental. It wasn't fair to Leaf. "You're right. After all, they say beauty is found in simple things." Hephaestus amended, before a small smirk appeared on his lips. "And I know that's true because it's proven to me every time I see your smile." He added cheesily, his hand latching onto Leaf's. While Hephaestus is abrasive and often rude, he is also a hopeless romantic. It can't be helped. "Ice skating, huh? I've never been ice skating..." He admitted, his voice smaller than before.

Leaf couldn't help but cringe a little at Hephaestus' words, but he smiled all the same, even going as far as to squeeze the other's hand lightly to reaffirm that. "Are all pure-bloods so overly cheesy?" He teased, "Perhaps its a good thing I never fell for any of them for the majority of Hogwarts." He did want to jab at being insinuated to being simple, but he decided to let it pass before tilting his head, "Haven't you? Not even on the Black Lake when it froze over?"

Troy was trying (and failing) to skate around the ice rink. It was eight pm at night and the sun had long since set, leaving the only light sources was the bright lamps scattered around the park. Naturally, the rink was closed but Troy was small and lanky, easily able to sneak in. It was his favourite place to go recently, ever since his father became minister. Of course, he wasn't very good at skating. Troy was terrible with physical activity and his hand was fixed onto the barriers as he tried to keep his balance.

Margie was walking around the park, looking for a scarf she'd lost there earlier that day. She had gone skating with some friends and had left it there by accident. Just like she suspected, it was on the ground next to the bench where they drank hot chocolate. Though it was the summer, the rink was cold and hot chocolate always warmed her up. Picking up the scarf and throwing it around her neck, Margie made to leave, but a figure in the ice rink made her stop. It was supposed to be closed... Moving closer to see who it was, she was surprised to see Troy from school. The poor thing was trying his hardest to skate, and she couldn't help but smile at his efforts. "Need some help?" She offered with a small laugh, her eyes alight with humor.

Troy almost jumped as he heard a voice and turned his head to look at Margie, slowly recognising her from not only his house but also his year level. They had classes together and he was pretty sure they had met once before...right? "Uh...yeah, maybe...I'm not very good at this," he confessed, rubbing the back of his neck. Bad idea. It had made him start to lose his balance and it took him a moment to straighten himself out. "You're...Margie, right?"

Luckily Margie still had her skates with her. She may have left her scarf, but she'd never forget her ice-skates. "Yeah, I am. And you're Troy." She recalled with a smile as she easily made her way into the rink. "Why are you out here if you don't know how to skate?" Margie asked with a slight laugh.

How to explain your dad was the minister of magic and would never be seen dead in a muggle park. Of course, technically, neither of them were meant to be there either but it wasn't enforced quite yet. He shrugged, his cheeks turning a light shade of red. "Oh...you know...practise makes perfect," he said before pausing, "and no one I really know hangs around this place."

Margie offered him a warm smile as she laced up her skates. "Well, now you have at least one person you know." She decided as she stood up and grabbed his hands so he wouldn't keep holding the side. "First thing's first - you'll never learn if you keep hugging the wall." She instructed with a laugh, beginning to slowly skate backwards, pulling him along with her.

Troy widened his eyes as he felt his hands be slipped off the walls. "W-Wait!" He said, his cheeks dotted red. Was this because of Margie or the cold? The former. Troy knew that it was the former. He could hear his heart beating as he felt himself slide along with her. His legs were shaking so his balance was wonky and he found himself gripping Margie's hands rather tightly. After a second, he decided maybe it wasn't so bad. Margie better not leg of him though.

Margie was beaming at her housemate, proud of how well he was doing. "See? You've already got the hang of it!" She laughed happily, beginning to pick up her speed. She squeezed his hands back to match his grip, letting Troy know she was there and that there was no need to worry. "Next thing you know, you'll be landing the lutz." Margie assured the boy with a warm smile, her cheeks and nose beginning to redden due to the cold.

"The what?" He asked, his voice shakey and rather weak. They were going faster. Oh no. Troy was barely use to the slow speed than before let alone this. (It was really not that fast but it was fast to Troy). He could feel himself beginning to stumble and after a second, he found one of his legs slipping out from under him, making him fall forward. Widening his eyes, the only thing that went through his head was 'oh no'.

Margie should've slowed down, but she was so used to going her speed. By the time she realized, Troy was already falling. She made an attempt to hold him up, but all that did was make her lose her balance too. Next thing she knew, she was falling backwards, Troy falling right after her. It was then that her embarrassment hit her. He. Was. So. Close. Her cheeks were no longer reddening because of the cold, now they had a different reason. Eyes wide, all Margie could do was stare at the boy on top of her. She swore her heart would beat right out of her chest. She hoped to Merlin that he couldn't feel it's fast percussion.

The one good thing Troy did was have his hands fly out, landing directly on the ice with a thud. That was going to leave a mark. His nose was on the verge of brushing against Margie's and his cheeks were now a dark red. It took him a moment to be able to form words. He should also probably get off her. "U-Um..." he trailed off, "are you okay?"

The poor thing couldn't even form words. Which for her, was unimaginable. She always found something to say. But this time, she could only nod. Despite the cold ice pressed against her back, Margie's whole body felt warm and fuzzy. She'd never felt like that before.

God, she probably wasn't speaking because she was so...so...humiliated. Because of him. Scrambling off her, he tried to get back on his feet but he slipped right back onto his ass. "I'm really sorry."

Troy falling was enough to pull Margie out of her stupor, evoking a laugh from her. "Are you okay?" She asked through her giggles, holding her stomach as she sat up. Her eyes were alight with humor as she took in the other boy, the tension from moments before long gone.

Apenimon was strolling through the park, trying to get used to his surroundings some more. He quite liked London, but it was nothing like America. It was cramped and cold most of the time, and for a big guy like him it was claustrophobic. Being in the park was a breather for him, and he was enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.

It was one of those rare days that Chrys hadn't had to go into work or be there for someome. In all honesty, always being the support for someone else and no one being the support for you was emotionally draining, at least for himself. The fresh air gave him the breathing room that he needed quite literally as well as a beautiful park view. It was a few moments later when he finally sat down on a bench, just wanting to take in the natural beauty.

He didn't pay any attention to the man who had sat down beside him. In all honesty he wasn't in the mood to speak to anyone, but at the same time he didn't mind it. What a contradiction that happened to be. When the male spoke, Chrys turned in the males direction. "Oh, sure. Thank you." He took one of the apple slices, his lips curving into a jalf smile before biting into the apple slice.

It's pretty common to have names like mine. Not that it matters much here half of them can't even pronounce it." He didn't mean for it come off rudely, but the tone he used could be seen as such.

"I'm good. It's nice to be home." It was really nice to be home for a bit. No uniform. No having to study twenty-four seven and dealing with homework constantly. No strict teachers. The break was always quite relieving at the beginning. Though, like always, Colette would start to miss Hogwarts soon enough. School occasionally felt like a break, too. "How's your summer so far?"

"Mine, too." Although her mother had been more easy with Colette going out lately, she always had been pretty chill about other things.

"Quiet," Colette restated, can't helping but laugh a little bit. In a banshee household, quiet wasn't a thing. Her siblings sometimes communicated by bloody screaming loud enough to make the average wizard or witch deaf... And it could be for dumb stuff like who's turn it was to do laundry. "Definitely not quiet where I live."
