Ah... the smell of a nice rainy day was something Maura loved, she loved the smell of rain more then anything.  She loved how everything was growing back again, it was like a beginning of new life each time it came.  Stopping to smell the roses near by, she smiled happily to herself.  It was nice to stop and enioy the smell of the flowers and the breeze through her hair, it was refreshing and soothing.  


Skipping happily down the village she stopped at the flower garden in a small courtyard not too far from the three broomsticks, she loved it here during this time of year it was so pretty and magical.  Taking a seat on the beach by the roses she opened her book on non verbal spells and set it beside her before getting her wand out. Taking a glass vase she accidentally broke in the process of using the levitating spell,  she set it down before she thought of the spell before flicking her wand.  As the pieces floated up and startes going together she smiled, but it quickly fell as it fell down and on the bench again.  "Dang it!  Oh come on that was a good one!"  Stomping her foot like a toddler who didn't get their way, she tried again and failed.

Sighing to herself,  she sat down biting her lip thinking about what she was doing wrong,  but then again not many witches and wizards can do non verbal magic.  It was pretty hard to learn,  almost as hard as wandless magic and she heard that was almost harder then becoming an animagus.  Deciding to take a break from it,  she massaged her temples to get rid of the headache that was forming.

The final stretch. Merlin, did that feel good to say. He was almost out, not that there was anything wrong with being at Hogwarts, he was just ready to be out in the real world. Right now the closest thing he had was going to Hogsmeade, like he was currently doing. It was nice to take time from the castle every now and then, even if it meant that he would just be wandering around the small village for a few hours. It was amazing how much happened there, despite how small it seemed. It was always so full of life and it made Ryo sad that he would actually leave it soon, not that he couldn't go back and visit it. As long as his adult life allowed it, of course.

He hadn't been in the village for very long before he spotted a familiar face near the Three Broomsticks. It was strange to him that anyone wouldn't want to go into the pub, but given who he was looking at and where she was sitting, he supposed it made sense. Along with being his housemate, Maura was also a chaser for the Hufflepuff team and they got along rather well despite her being a year below him. He watched her for a few minutes before approaching, watching her practice her magic, though a frown formed on his face when he realized that was what she was doing. He wasn't a goody-two shoes by any means but he knew that students weren't supposed to be doing magic outside of the castle walls, especially when underaged. He shrugged it off, but made a mental note to remind her of the rules when he could.

When he finally walked toward her, Ryo put on a small smile, almost like a smirk though it was unintentional and said, "Hey Mars, fancy meeting you here." He put his hands on the back of the bench and leaned over it a little to be able to show her his face from above.

She knew half of her friends were lesving after this year and she was a bit sad over it, but she was told by Soph and them they'll stay in touch, so she wasn't worried about it much.  Although she knew that real life was different then being here at Hogwarts,   hell her parents tended to stay busy quite a bit with their jobs at the ministry and candy store her mother owned.  Only thing she was worried about was being left alone here next year, of course she had other friends her year or below, but it'll be different without Soph and them.   She was going to miss them, but she didn't want to think about that now, she wanted to enjoy the time they had left and make the most out of it.   Maybe just maybe get out of her shell more and make more friends seeing how she only had one year left here.


She wasn't aware of that rule, she only thought it was in the muggle world and during the summer time and holidays that they weren't unless they were at age.  Although she turned seventeen already she wasn't a seventh year by any means.   She didn't want to get into trouble,  but she simply didn't know anything about this rule.  Maura wasn't a goody-two shoes by any means, she broken her fair share of rules without even trying to at times.  She always seemed to get into trouble without trying to,  some how she was always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hearing a familiar voice, she let out a smile and shrugged her shoulders.  "Just practicing some non verbal spells, still haven't gotten it down by I'm going to if it's the last thing I do."  Although she knew not many people came over this way or stop, they were usually in the three broomsticks or so but she wanted some place alone and somewhat quiet and away from everyone incase something went wrong.  Realizing how close they were a blushed escaped her cheeks.   Of course she knew Ryo cause they were borh chasers on the team and he was the captain,  but she always had a crush on him since her third year.   Biting her lip she looked up at him.  "What are you doing here? Thought you were going over Quidditch strategies for the next match." She knew how he was, always trying to make their team the best.

Upon walking up to her and seeing how hard she was working on her spells, Ryo's face softened and he decided against saying anything to her. Though she was frustrated, the look of determination in her eyes was more than enough to keep him from spoiling her fun. If she did end up getting in trouble for it, he could just cover for her if he was around. There was something about Maura that made Ryo want to protect her. Maybe it was that they were housemates, or maybe it was that she was also on the quidditch team. Whatever the reason, Ryo felt a strong pull toward her that he couldn't really explain.

"Are you cold?" Ryo said with a look of worry on his face when he noticed that she was pink around the cheeks. Anyone else might have been able to tell that she was blushing from being so close to him, but Ryo had never been too slick with women. Many thought that he was attractive but Ryo had never really had much time for girls, aside from a snog here and there. The Hufflepuff had always been more focused on his school and quidditch career than anything else. It wasn't like he didn't find the girls that liked him attractive either, he just wasn't interested. A few of his friends had said multiple times that it would take a "special" girl to make Ryo realize that there was more to like than studying and quidditch.

He didn't doubt them.

"Oh, um." Ryo pulled back from Maura after hearing her question. He ran a hand through his hair as he straightened himself up and shrugged. "I was doing that but it didn't take me as long as I thought it would. Plus I won't know if the strats work unless we execute them on the field. I figured I would kill some time in the village before curfew." he explained, a sheepish smile on his face. He wasn't one to admit to slacking off, not that this was slacking, but Ryo always thought that if he was "finished" with something involving quidditch, he more than likely still had more he could do.

Maura was always  propensity  in working hard and trying to achieve her goals she set out for herself.  She was determined to at least get this spell down, if she could just get this spell done she'll be happy.  She didn't want anyone to get into trouble especially him, but he was seem to protect in Quidditch him taking the hit instead of her or getting bumped extremely hard by the other chasers at pratice at times.  She thought it was sweet of him, but she didn't like when he gotten into trouble or hurt.  She also felt more closer to him then anyone,  she didn't understand why but something about him felt safe and protected.  She didn't understand it, maybe it was because they were on the same team and house.

Realizing that it was a bit breezy,  she nodded her head looking up at him.  "A bit,  I should've brought me a jacket but I didn't know it was going to be this windy."   Although the breeze was calming down her hotness ffom her blush,  she was indeed getting a bit cold from the wind.  She knew that he had girls follow him around and fond over him she wasn't one of them,  even though she did have a crush on him.  She swore he had a fan club of girls after him,   she seen them in the bleachers at the Quidditch pitch.  Although she was a odd ball, she knew most boys found her weird or just wanted her for her looks and get into her pants.


She nodded.   "That makes sense,  I can't wait to see what they are, sure they'll be great!"  Looking around she put her book back into her bag and simply threw away the broken vase, it was no point of keep carrying it around.    "Hey... you want to go to the three broomsticks or grab something and walk around?  I know of this really cool area not far from here."   She wasn't asking him on a date or anything just butterbeers and walking as friends but she knew how people were around here,  rumors fly quicker then the golden snitch in a Quidditch stadium.

Ryo wasn't one to pay attention to the weather that much, but for once he'd dressed appropriately. Along with his usual leather jacket that he wore, he had a long sleeved black shirt on underneath. Hearing Maura say that she was feeling a bit cold, as if on instinct, Ryo took his jacket off and draped it around her shoulders. "There. That should keep you warm." He smiled at her. It was a simple smile, not a flirtatious one. In his mind, if he could do something to help keep her from catching a cold, he would. Especially if he wanted to make sure she didn't get sick before a match.

"Sorry that it smells like my cologne. Some people say it's strong." he half mumbled. Ryo suddenly felt himself get a bit shy after giving her the jacket. It was nothing more than a nice gesture to a teammate but somehow it felt like it was something more. He wasn't reading into anything by any means but the more he thought about it, the more he realized that it could easily be misconstrued. He watched her gather her things and throw away the pieces of the vase quietly, almost like he was lost in his thoughts but when she asked if he wanted to get drinks/food and walk around, he almost seemed to perk up.

Ryo didn't get the chance to hang out with anyone much, so he sure wasn't going to turn the opportunity down. Besides, it wasn't like Maura was a stranger and they could talk about the team or anything else as they seemed to have multiple things in common. With a nod Ryo replied, "Sure thing. Whatever you want to do." He smiled at her again, a genuine smile that he rarely showed anyone.

Maura was usually the one who forgets to dress warmly on days like these, but she simply thought it was going to be a nice day so she did bother bringing a jacket. It was just her luck not bringing something warmer to wear,  why did this always happen to her?  "Thanks, but what about you I don't want you to get cold." That was the last thing she wanted was for him to get sick, but she would take care of him if he was though.  There was something about him that made her care alot about him, she didn't understand why though.  She cares about him deeply, probably more then her friends, but the thing is she didn't mind one bit.

A soft blush escaping her cheeks as he said that, but she did have to admit it did smell good.  "It's ok I dont mind, I actually like the way it smells."  Looking down as she said that, she put it the rest of the way on and giggled.  The coat probably looked like a huge leather jacket that was way too big on her, but she felt warm and safe plus it smelled like him.  "I'm nore worried about the guys giving you a hard time for it smelling like strawberries and vanilla."  She knew how the guys were on their team, always messing around and teasing whoever they could.  Maura remembered how they really didn't like her being on the team cause it was mainly all boys,  but after she proved to be better than them they accepted her.

Maura didn't have many friends,  she was a loner and tended to stay away from people for the most part.   It wasn't that she thought they were bad, just she had trust issues and was a bit shy at times.  Giving him a soft warm smile she looked up at him.  "Just thought it'll be nice to take a walk and talk, the pub is so crowded you can barely think in there."  She wasn't lying about that, it was always crowded and noisy and finding a seat was always a game of musical chairs basically.
