Of course Maria had noticed Margaux. All night. Whenever Maria wasn't flirting and attempting to get Viola to flirt back. When she and Viola finally went their separate ways and Maria danced with several partners, male and female. But every chance she spotted the fellow part veela, Maria stopped for just a moment to appreciate the view. To be honest, Maria was actually happy Margaux went with Elias. She knew the french girl would ensure her cousin had a good time. And considering their conversation yesterday, she was pretty sure Elias had more on his mind, so Maria felt absolutely no guilt in eyeing his date any chance she got. She wouldn't move in though. No, Elias deserved a good night. As the hours went by, the crowd in the Great Hall began to thin. Soon, and just after the clock struck midnight, Maria pushed away the boy she'd currently been snogging against one of the walls. He, obviously, looked confused, to which Maria just rolled her eyes and stepped away. He'd only been a distraction to pass the time.
Maria caught sight of Margaux once more, and smirked. No sign of Elias. She wasn't sure where her cousin had gone. Whether it be back to the ship for the night, or entertaining someone else. Either way, Margaux was alone. When she was sure Margaux had spotted her near the entrance of the Great Hall, that smirk widened. She didn't say anything, or attempt to make any sort of gestures. She didn't need to. The eye contact was enough to make her intentions clear. The eye contact lasted only a few moments, before Maria slipped out into the Entrance hall, and then outside into the cold night.
Well, it must be cold. Maria didn't really notice it. It'd been hot inside the Great Hall, and the cold air felt nice against her skin. Maybe not for long, but for now. Stopping on the steps, Maria slipped her high heels off, carrying them in one hand by the straps while her other hand yanked out the bobby pins, her hair cascading down onto her shoulders in dark waves. Only then did she keep walking, stepping down the few remaining steps. She was in the courtyard. A few hours earlier there had been throngs of students, trying to find a quiet spot but it was silent now...
