[Hogwarts] White Teeth Teens

Eliza Villiers, Hogwarts School

Magical ★ Seventh Year • Slytherin
#30381
The summer had been an...interesting one for Eliza, to say the least. She had gone to the Villiers holiday home in France (as usual) and spent her summer lazing by the pool and drinking wine without her parent's permission (as usual). However, once she returned, the family harmony (as strange as it often was) took a turn for the worst when news of her father's affair reached the Villiers siblings.

The following days and weeks were riot albeit a quiet one. The silence in the Villiers Estate was deafening. Eliza had never been as glad for September 1st to roll around so she could make her sweet escape from the rolling English countryside.

Upon her return, however, Eliza's mind had only been on that of the affair. Her focus on her studies was at an all-time low. Multiple teachers had commented that the young Slytherin did not seem herself and she had heard a few of the girls whispering about her family in the corridors between classes.

This was Eliza's final year at Hogwarts. This was meant to be her year. The year where everybody in the school knew her name and adored her. She needed to get back on top, quickly.

Eliza sat in the Great Hall, Potions books scattered around her as she tried but desperately failed to complete the essay assigned to her the week before. She tapped her pen on the table repetitively, her eyes staring off into space.

Alexis Nightshade, Hogwarts School

Magical ★ Faculty • Charms Professor

One such professor that had noted that the Slytherin student had been rather withdrawn, was Professor Nightshade. Now, normally the seventh year's were perhaps the more energetic of the years, albeit a little stressed knowing exams were somewhere make or break this year, and making decisions for their futures. Alexis' remembered those times well.

It was a free period for some, and a break for others and Alexis was on duty to keep a watchful eye on the students remaining in the Great Hall. Her eyes flicked around as she did the occasionally loop about. Stopping briefly to converse with a student seeking assistance with homework. Sometimes, they just wanted to see her pet hamster, that accompanied her around the school, and during lessons.

She paused as she wandered past Eliza, "Knut for your thoughts Miss Villiers?"

Just as Eliza was thinking about some plot or scheme she could come up with to make herself more popular, Professor Nightshade wandered into her peripheral vision. The Slytherin sat up, putting a bright smile on her face.

"Oh Professor Nightshade." she replied, "I'm just trying to decide which of the many Everlasting Elixirs I should write about for this potions essay. The list is," she paused, smiling at the Charms professor, "well, everlasting."

Alexis eyed the young woman with a curious expression before settling on a warm smiling, "I can see that's quite the conundrum, in these circumstances, I think the best option is either to settle on the one that really calls to you. Or if you really can't decide, you can always put the name of the potions into a hat and then randomly select one."

Appearing just around Alexis' neck, though partially hidden by her hair were two small beady eyes watching the girl with utmost curiosity.

Eliza nodded at the professor's suggestion. "It would be great if there was an Everlasting Elixir that could make you popular forever." she laughed. "That would definitely be the Elixir for me."

The Slytherin began to pack away some of her belongings. After all, she had been here an hour and written a measly three words. Work was not going to be completed this evening. As she began packing away she noticed a small creature at her teacher's neck. Professor Nightshade and her hamster were well known amongst the students at Hogwarts although Eliza never actually got to interact with it. The young blonde smiled.

"How is your hamster getting on, Professor Nightshade." Eliza asked.

"You think so?" she asked the student at the girl's desire to always be popular, "would you really prefer to have that instant, faked rather than the popularity that comes naturally, not forced?

It wouldn't be Alexis' cup of tea, not by any stretch but then she was a lot older than Eliza, and had gone into the phase of simply not caring if she was well liked etc, part of the it crowd and all that jazz. That said, she knew still just about remembered being a teenager and all the agro that went with it.

At the mention of Button's she smiled, her hand reaching up to gentle coax the little creature from clinging to the back of her neck to into the palm of her hand, with a very careful hand movement, she scooped him up and held him down lower for both he and Eliza to see one another clearly.

"Oh, like a duck to water. Curious little thing that seemingly adores everyone and everything. Nosey too..."

Buttons shifted forward on Alexis' hand, little nose and whiskers twitching as it regarded Eliza, very slowly it shifted from it's not usual soft lavender grey hue to more grey. Alexis frowned only for a moment before looking back at Eliza.
