10.01.2019 - year five
A loud clatter echoed throughout the empty classroom Mina was in. The sound came from a chair she had kicked over in anger, the cause being a seventh year boy she had been vying after for a while turning her down, the fact of which she did not like. The bubbling frustration of feeling like she had wasted her time during the last few months had held on just long enough for the classroom door to shut and until the sound of footsteps in the adjacent corridor dissipated. To make it worse, today was her birthday, and she had purposely turned down doing things with her friends in order to hang out with this stupid guy. Figured, nothing ever really seemed to go the way she wanted it to when it was planned out. The excuse he had given her was a pretty weak one too; the fact that he ‘only had a few months of school left and needed to focus on his studies’ did not resonate with her beliefs in the slightest. What she couldn’t understand was why that even mattered at this point in time. The years leading up to seventh year were more important, to be honest. Even she knew that. But she ‘wouldn’t understand, because she was only a fifth year still’. God, she didn’t need to be treated like a child anymore – she was sixteen as of today, after all.
Letting out a low, frustrated groan at the turn of events, Mina crossed the room and threw herself into a chair that was situated at a window near the back of the classroom, folding her arms up on the sill with another huff as her chin hit them. There was no use in leaving the room for the next few minutes, the odds of her running into him on the way back to the common room were relatively high still. And even if she did make it back there without another encounter, what was she going to do? Have her friends spring into action in order to celebrate her birthday? While it certainly sounded like something she would normally do, it was too exhausting at this hour of the night. Better to wait until after curfew and wander back, if not stay here all night. As long as she wasn’t intruded on, no one would care all that much.
