Rai had taken the day off yesterday but she was back now, taking a walk along the trees by the forest at the edge. It was January eighth, and Rai was more sure now than ever that she was head over heels for one of her best friends, Grey Slater. She had been iffy, confused and unfocused about it all before. But recent events had cleared it up for her. And now, replacing that doubt and that fear with confidence and brightness. She felt like she was flying, which she actually could so she knew what the sensation was like. The strange lift in her stomach, the elation in her heart. She felt... well, she felt incredibly cheesy. Like she was in a Broadway musical and the only way she could express these feelings was through song and dance.
Her mind flickered back to that night with Poe, two nights ago. She felt her heart tug a little at that night. At what she'd felt verses what she hadn't. She'd thought about kissing him before, even pictured it but... it didn't happen how she imagined. First of all, it wasn't really on purpose and second of all... she felt nothing. Nothing romantic, that is. She was sad about that, in a way, but also couldn't deny that she was incredibly relieved that her mind had finally found some sort of stable ground.
She thought about that night that she almost died, that the vampire had given her a choice and she had chosen to stay. Of course she stayed for all her friends and family, but in her heart she knew what the main tether was. Who, rather. And, luckily, she happened to see said person up ahead, walking in her direction. She grinned widely. He was walking along the forests edge, too, not that she should be surprised. She felt her stomach do a summersault and she knew what she had to do next.
She was a Gryffindor, after all.
She continued her path until he noticed her approaching and gave a little wave. As the distance closed between them, he opened his mouth and started to say something, stopping where he was. But she didn't break her stride. Instead, she took the necessary steps to completely close the distance between them. Her left hand grabbed the front of his shirt and her right hand clasped the back of his neck as she pulled his lips to hers.
She kissed him, whether he kissed her back or not.
