The Quad

The quad

The Quad (also known as the Paved Courtyard) is a courtyard located on the Hogwarts Castle exterior area. This courtyard is connected to the Boathouse and the Viaduct. There are four towers, two each located at either end of this courtyard; Gryffindor Tower, the Grand Staircase Tower, the Stone Bridge Tower and the North Tower. In the middle of the other two sides are the Suspension Bridge Towers and the Hospital Wing. Gobstones players usually gather here to play Snake Pit.

There was a light blanket of fresh snow on the Quad, and Regan was taking some joy in making artistic footprint paths in the snow.

She still wasn't use to snow. It snowed a little bit in Paris, but it was nothing compared to the snow in Scotland. Charlie wasn't sure if she liked it or not. Still, she was moving through the quad, dressed in a large, winter coat and a scarf, trying to keep herself warm, when she spied Regan doing...something. Walking over, she watched her for a few seconds until she voiced her confusion with the question, "what are you doing?"

She gestured behind her, to the loops she was doing in the snow. "Having fun," she said with a grin. "It's silly... but I like doing it in the fresh snow sometimes."

She looked in the direction that the other girl gestured in and a small 'oh' left her lips as she looked at the loops. "Nice," she said, not sure what else to say, "I'm presuming you've been doing this for years?"

"I like it better than France, lot more independence here," she confessed with a shrug, "the people seem to be nice enough, though I'm not really a fan of the moving stairs," she confessed.

She hesitated at the question, slipping her hands into her pockets, and shrugged. "Away from the parents," she said vaguely, "they struggle to get anywhere with you when you're miles away."

"Something like that, yeah," she confessed with a small smile. She thought briefly of mentioning that her mother, the only alive parent, was more reliant and needy, suffocating Charlie after the fire, more than hovering and strict, but shrugged the thought off. She'd probably come across as cruel and selfish. "You're the same, then?"

She nodded slowly. "I think that if you can't be friends, if you happen to break up for... whatever reason.... and work together with someone who you had a relationship with... that's a reflection on your maturity. Like... so what if we break up? We could still make it work. You be an adult about it and... keep at it, or find a way to gracefully move on. It's not like you're inherently screwing yourself... right?"

Wren didn't want to be disturbed by anyone. Someone from his past returning had taken enough of a toll on him and to attain a very visible and very painful injury? Made the whole ordeal worse. He was sitting on a bench in the quad nursing his cheek that was swollen slightly. In any other case he would've used magic to make the swelling go down, but that was the last of his priorities. He was so absorbed in dabbing ice cubes onto it that he didn't notice anyone approaching him, let alone that person being Bella.

"I am one of the quiet ones," Wren said, ignoring her initial reaction and moving his cheek a little to re-position some ice, "You don't need to be loud to brew lethal potions or use wandless magic." He shrugged, gaze finally falling on her, "If it was with one of the Serpents I'm sure I'd have more than one swollen cheek." He ran his free hand through his hair and sighed, shaking his head as much as his face would allow him. "Some ghost from the past decided a punch was a better greeting than a simple hello," he muttered, the venom in his voice making it clear that it was a raw issue, "Guess nobody's given him the brief down on who the Serpents are yet."

He took the ice and raised an eyebrow at the girl's words, what little empathy he had for Oscar worrying that the other could be in danger. "Oscar Fermanagh," he said after a few seconds of silence, debating internally on whether or not to give away details about his former best friend, "From the looks of it, Gryffindor." He nodded in the direction of the Clock Tower Courtyard, "The brat punched me in the clock courtyard. Some firsties were about so I'm sure if you ask any of them they'll lead you to him." He paused for a few seconds before clearing his throat, "Don't completely destroy him - I need to get out some personal vendettas too, so leave some of him for me."

Wren immediately nodded at the offer to heal it, smiling as much as he could at her, "If you could, it'd be nice to not look like this." He felt slightly uncomfortable under the wild look but he figured it was more so a reaction of what he had revealed, rather than anything he himself had done and subsequently pinned it on the fact she was a lot closer to his face than before. He laughed airily, flashing another smile at her, "Maybe give him a broken leg, a few scars and some bruising? I'd like to make my own mark on him - only after he's been told why you don't mess with the Serpents, of course."

Wren stifled a smile, "I'm sure if I was straight I'd be fighting off a boner." He let a hand move up to his face, probing the cheek and was thankful to not feel the swelling he'd been fighting against for the past hour or so, "Thanks." He nodded at her words before smiling, "Oh! Another request, maybe don t tell him I'm part of the Serpents? I feel like he'd actually kill me if I didn't say it myself." He was silent for a few moments before waving a hand jokingly, "Enjoy your douche-hunt! I want all the details when it's done."
