The light coming in from the stained-glass window casts a nebulous glow throughout the room. The air smells of soap and the floors damp with water. You walk to the edge of the large tub, wrapped in your bath robe. Slowly, you lower yourself into the wonderfully warm water.
Harley strides to the prefect's bathroom, glancing around. He has a towel and some fresh clothes, clearly preparing to take a bath. He says the password clearly in order to open the bathroom. "Pine fresh." His voice rings out a little louder than planned, but it opens nonetheless.

Max is in the pool tub, he has been there for a few hours now and is lazily admiring the nice-looking stained glass windows. He hears someone come in, and after recognising who it is, the edges of his mouth curl up into a smile. Harley. The boy that had been in his mind for quite some time now, and his latest conquest. The guy is bi-curious at the very least, and he wants a piece of all that. Max does not reveal his presence yet and watches the other boy from under the foam and the bubbles.
The bath looks like exactly what he needs. He sighs, putting his towel to the side and stripping down. It suddenly occurs to him how akward it would be to encounter his sister here. Once he's down to his birthday suit, he wraps himself in a towel, moving towards the bath. Thus far, he hasn't noticed anyone else there. Harley dips a toe to test the water, then takes off the towel and lowers himself in.

He grins to himself after seeing Harley in all his glory. Impressive, he thought, and he waits for a couple more minutes before announcing his presence, simply watching the other boy as he passed the time. "Relaxing, isn't it?" He asks, his voice echoing all throughout the room.
He takes a moment to relax, only to tense up as soon as he hears someone speak. Pushing himself against the tub, he looks around. The voice is familiar enough. "Max?" He calls, uncertainly. Spotting the other finally, he pulls some bubles to cover up his chest. "What are you doing here?" he asks testily, a little unnerved.

"I could ask you the same thing." He says, smirking. "But obviously, I am taking a bath. Although I wasn't stalking you or anything, if that's what you're worried about." He replies after taking note of the other boy's unnervedness. "I've been here for quite a while now." He shrugs.
"...Right." He's not sure how much of that to believe, mainly because he's narcissistic enough to believe it is all a lie. Part of him wants to leave the bath, but that would mean losing, right? "I'm taking a bath too," he says, recovering from initial shock. Harley smirks. "Unfortunately for you, I'm still not gay, so you're not getting any of this-" he motions toward himself. "And you're still not winning quidditch." He's a little releaved the other hasn't asked how he happens to have access to the prefect's bathroom, that could ruin is bad boy image.

He just shrugs, still smirking. "It's okay, I like guys who play hard to get." He teases. "And guys who like to break the rules and smoke in hallways, especially those in power. Right, Mr. Ravenclaw Prefect?" He teases some more, winking at the other boy this time. He'd asked Elena about him, and since she's prefect, she actually knows who Harley is.
Fuck. So he does know. He wishes he had his pack now. "You've been asking about me?" He raises an eyebrow, a bit mockingly. "Not that I should expect less. The only game I'm playing is the game of winning, because as far as I know you are not female." Harley looks at him pointedly. "Not. My type." Even as he says this, he starts noticing more and more of Max's features,misfortune of being naked in a bath tub.
