Location: Courtyard • Date: Winter


Despite the cold, Harry had decided to venture out to the courtyard for a little quiet time. He listlessly kicked the snow on the ground and he thought back on his last attempt to get the Professor Slughorn's real memory of Riddle asking about horcruxes. He seemed to be failing in this simple task that Dumbledore had given him.

How was he going to save the entire wizarding world from Voldemort if he couldn't even get a an old man to tell him the truth about something that had happened over fifty years ago?

Luna found herself wandering, as usual. She rather liked wandering, as it cleared her head and brought her a sense of clarity that she was struggling to find lately. With everything that was going on, it seemed like the world was getting darker and darker. Like it was clouded by pesky wrackspurts.

Her wandering had led her to the courtyard, and across the courtyard, she spotted her friend, Harry. He seemed frustrated, but when didn't he seem so, when it was so evident that so many people were against him in so many ways. It was a lot for a teenager to handle.

"Hello, Harry," she greeted from across the way. She offered the other a small smile, hoping to cheer him enough to get him to unfurrow his eyebrows.

Harry was deep in thought when Luna's familiar yet soothing voice broke his concentration. He was far from annoyed by the interruption; it was quite the opposite. He was relieved to have something, someone, help ground him to the present. He spent so much of his time thinking - worrying - about the future that he was missing out on a lot of the present. Ron and Hermione were usually good about helping bring him back but lately they both seemed to be dealing with their own stuff as well, so much so that he felt like a burden at times.

So it was nice that he other friends like Luna.

"Hey, Luna," he greeted her, the slightest of smiles crossing his lips as he found himself sitting up a little straighter, "what brings you out here today?"

He was expecting nargles or some other creature Harry had never heard of and Hermione would say was made up.
