by the light of the stars
There was something soothing about the way the stars seemed to laugh every time they winked in the distance, and even more so when the night was still and cool. It was fresh air, something she dearly needed on a return to school that didn't feel as welcoming as the previous years. Juni had returned despite all of her father's reservations, and the world was much more hostile than she'd seen it before. To cope, she had been more than eager to beg for more classes. Astrology had been given to her after a good amount of convincing with the professors, but even there would always be flaws in good things.

The flaw was the Slytherins. Despite the best of her attempts, she hadn't been able to avoid them and now she had a scheduled appointment with one. Theodore Nott. His reputation preceded him enough that Juni could feel something akin to butterflies in her stomach, though not the "oh gosh, he's so cute" kind. These were angry butterflies, formed from the anxiety of dealing with someone whose views were drastically different from her own.

Her teeth bit her lip softly as she splayed her parchments out across the table she'd found, setting up her telescope before taking her seat. They were to chart a very specific set of stars for the next week and it meant nights of her spending time with him here in the tower, something she wasn't looking forward to... And even worse. He was late.

TAG: Juni Krause

NOTES: NONE

The last thing that Theodore wanted was to be spending the evening with a Hufflepuff alone in a tower. He however was not about to risk getting a bad mark for not showing up. He debated with himself for the better part of an hour after dinner and then with a sigh got up from the couch in the common room. Theodore headed up to the dorm room and gathered his telescope and notes. Another moment of hesitation and then he was off.

Hooded eyes were dark and the look on his face a scowl. He saw a few people he knew along the way but gave no more acknowledgement than a court nod. For most, this was his normal attitude anyways. Theodore moved with purpose as he climbed the grand staircase. The stairs winding up the astronomy tower was narrow and Theodore made a bit of noise climbing it. He mumbled to himself when he finally reached the top.

Theodore did not speak to the blonde. He moved to set up his telescope on the table beside Juni and unrolled his parchment. Before long he had his ink and quill ready to go as well. Theodore finally took a few minutes to look around. Not so much at the girl, though she was pretty, he knew all he wanted to know about the mudblood lover. It was not often however that he got to be here without the whole class. He suddenly felt quite small looking over the vast stretch of stars.

One hand came up to tuck dark hair behind his ear and then he finally spoke in a voice much more comforting to the ear than one would have expected.. "What have you got done so far?" He glanced at her.

There was no grand entrance or even fleeting introductions when the haughty Slytherin finally decided to grace her with his presence. By the time he'd arrived, her lips had formed a hard line on her face as she moved between peeking through her telescope and making careful lines on her paper. Her eyes were hard and irritation plain on her face from the set of her jaw. He was going to make every moment of this assignment a terrible one for her, she felt, and she didn't want to give him the pleasure of her looking weak. When in doubt, silence always proved to be the best answer.

He took his time as he glanced up at the stars in their shared unspoken agreement of no words before finally setting his items down on the table she'd selected. The agreement was broken with a simple question and her quill paused on the parchment. To break the silence or not? Her teeth momentarily bit her lip before she finally moved her eyes up from her tight but neat handwriting, "I have done," She blew on the ink briefly to help it dry before offering it up to him to see, "a cluster here to the right of Saturn," Her accent hung heavy on her voice, perhaps because she was concentrating more on her words than how she said them.

"Where would you like to start?" Always formal, always polite, but her eyes refused to meet his. Eye contact was to be avoided at all costs and her gaze instead was back on the parchment, inspecting her own work. It was clear that she was about as thrilled to work with him as he was to work with her.

NOTES: YOUR NOTES.

You could almost feel her frustration coming off of her in waves. Theodore was oblivious to it. He glanced at the drawing she held up to him but Theodore did not comment on it. The way she refused to look at him made Theodore smile just a little.

It wasn't the type of treatment Theodore was used to getting from women. Theodore took up his quill.

"Why don't you just keep charting the stars. I'll chart the movement of the planets for this week and we can be done with this." He smirked. "Then you won't have to worry your pretty little blonde head over this. We'll get better grades if I do it anyways."

Everyone knew Theodore was dedicated to getting high grades. He worked diligently on quality and the presentation of his work. Theodore did not need to loose marks because he depended on someone else to do the work. He would write the required essay and look over the star charting when she was done. It looked fine right now but if her work turned out to be crap, he'd just do it over himself.

Theodore bent forward over his parchment and started to write.

She would have been content to ignore him and his haughty demeanor, would have been satisfied just leaving things as they were, but no. He had to make a comment on her intelligence and suggest that she was less than him. The hand holding her quill grew stiff and her jaw grew taut as she ground her teeth, her nostrils flaring for a moment. There weren't many things she took pride in, but her grades had always been something she took seriously above all else. Juni's flared anger turned towards more silent rage as she set down her quill.

"Not that you have noticed, but I have never made below Exceeds Expectations." She snipped at him, though unfortunately her anger had turned her accent thick enough her English was almost hard to understand. Her message was clear - he could insult her for many things but her intellect was not one of them.

"So unhöflich." She grumbled later, quiet enough it was nearly under her breath but not much. Her distaste for working with him was even more obvious than it had been previously. The way he treated her was without respect or regard for her as a person, and thought it was the same way she had been treated throughout her years at Hogwarts, it was painfully more obvious that he felt himself to be far above her.

Was she seriously trying to brag? Theodore scoffed. He turned his head to look at her and got a little alarmed. He didn't look forward to what looked like an impending probability that he was going to either hexed, punched or kicked. "Easy, Princess." He he said as he straightened up slowly and hesitantly turned towards her. Theodore had no idea what unhöflich meant, or if he even heard her right, but he would not have seen himself as rude or disrespectful. Just honest.

"I just want to do well. And I'm not about to jeopardize that just cause..." He suddenly didn't want to finish that sentence. Instead he smiled. There was a flirtatious glint to it. The smile was one that he used with a lot of females in the school. To get his own way, get lucky or just get out of trouble. The good looks were a blessing.

He wasn't going back on his original statement but he would stay silent about that just to keep the peace. And to avoid a failing grade if she complained to the right sympathetic ear. "You do whatever you want."

If there was any way he could have made the situation worse, it would have been to call her something like... 'Princess'. Her jaw clenched and she fought against the urge to leave him here to do the assignment alone and just do her part on another night, but her want to succeed made her unable to leave her seat. "Do not call me princess. You do not know me." She stated, and that much was abundantly clear. While he had been busy working on his social life, Juni had holed herself up with her studies and working on improving herself as a student.Her father had always told her that her brains would get her further in life than anything else and he was never wrong.

"I will do my part of the assignment.You do yours." She snapped finally, making it quite noticable of her distaste for him as she pushed her table a bit away, crossing her legs primly as she returned to her parchment.

The image of that smile still lingered in her mind's eye and it taunted her, something there but something she didn't quite see. She wasn't good at reading faces and was even worse at nuances, but this one was tickling at her just beneath the surface. She exhaled sharply, a huff that was audible enough for him to hear. Damn him.

This girl struck Theodore as being seriously over dramatic. It was like she was just looking for a reason to freak out. When she snapped at him Theodore just shrugged and said "Sure, that's what I said." He watched her pull her table away from him and this time Theodore laughed out loud.

"Oh come on." He taunted her. Theodore considered pulling her table back over to his. It would piss her off even more and that could be funny.

So instead, Theodore stood and grabbed the back of his own chair. He spun it around backwards and placed it down right beside her again. Theodore sat leaning forward against the back of the chair and facing her. Theodore watched her for a moment.

Being childish but trying to defused the situation, he reached out with one hand and poked her gently in the upper arm. "Hey." He said softly. "Don't be mad. I'm not that bad."At least he didn't think he was. Many other people would disagree with him. Yet right now, Theodore was being nice and that could be rare for him.

The poking finger slipped down her arm gently.

Every nerve in her skin was painfully aware of Theo as he both aggravated and attempted to defuse the situation, her fingers wanting to desperately to twitch around the quill in her own anxiety. This wasn't the type of attention she was used to and it definitely wasn't the way people normally acted around her. Juni had worked for years to stay diligently away from social interactions and get through her school work without a lot of attention to herself, but it seemed with everything else that was changing this would too. Her father had told her that anonymity was safety and friends couldn't be trusted.

Father was always right. To disobey his word was to break everything she'd been raised to believe.

His finger on her arm was enough to make goosebumps rise on her skin, her hand suddenly gripping her quill tight. Touch was something that had been mostly forbidden in her home - her father was a man that though he loved his daughter, he didn't believe much in physical contact. She pulled back away from it, her stern attention on her parchment broken as she stared at him with a mix of confusion and flustered shock.

Her cheeks grew pink before she could stop them, her expression showing she was clearly caught off guard. "I... What?"

Theodore did not push it when she pulled away. He did watch her closely though. This girl, she put up a strong front but Theodore would bet that she was innocent in reality. Not that he cared... Theodore looked towards their assignment, thinking, but after a moment his eyes were drawn back to the blond.

Her blush was enough to make him laugh again. "Come on, Princess." He said again. Now that he knew she didn't like the title, he was going to use it even more. It was not really to annoy her and if she took a second before going off on him, she would see the term as more of a attempt to lighten the mood. "I don't bite. You need to ease up."

He watched her for a moment longer and then poked her one more time playfully before going back to his work. He pretended to forget about her when in reality, he was very much aware.

Again, he was pushing her buttons and trying to get a response from her and again it was working. This time, it wasn’t anger that rose from her but a blush that made her eyes move sternly to her parchment. The quill was trembling in her hands and she knew that this was absolutely a horrid decision to work with the man. He was known for being flirtatious and it had gotten him many places already. She bit down on her lip and turned her head away from him to look through her telescope again.

But he persisted. His finger touched her arm again and goosebumps rose on her pale skin, her eyes narrowing even as she peered up at the stars. “I thought you wanted me to work on my stuff and you work on yours?” She stated, her arm pulling away from the table now. The alarms were going off in her head because he’d touched her multiple times now and everything was telling her to run from the situation. There was safety in being hidden and here she was painfully exposed. Her father’s words were ringing through her head in his gruff tone, the familiarity of her native language more comfort than having to translate everything he said.

“What is wrong with being tense? Now more than ever it is important to be wary.” It was a comment referring to the Dark Lord, a man she feared quite plainly. Though she was pureblood her family had worked hard to escape him and her father had already paid the price. He’d lost a son and now he feared he may well lose his daughter if Voldemort truly made a return. There was no escaping the Death Eaters. He’d known that when he ran all those years ago, and he knew it still. Juni had been safe at Hogwarts, but with Dumbledore gone her safety had turned quickly to jeopardy. He didn’t want her here this year, but her grandmother had insisted she finish her studies.
