Emilia sat carefully on the ledge of the big stained glass window in the quiet corridor. It was springtime, so most of her schoolmates were spending their time outdoors, frolicking in the fields or playing with the giant squid in the lake on the school grounds. She didn't enjoy that sort of thing anyway; she was graceful... a lady. And the squid was disgusting.
Besides, she rather enjoyed the way the inside of the castle stayed cool when the rest of the world started to warm up. It gave her a reason to wear her cardigan, which she absolutely adored. And, being alone inside, away from distractions, she was able to daydream about the boy she liked, He was tall, dark, and handsome. Sometimes, she thought he looked at her the way she looked at him, but she was on the fence as to whether or not there could even be a possibility of something between them.
They were cousins. While their pureblood family may have supported it at one time, she wasn't sure if they would now. Or if she was even alright with it. But there she was, regardless, thinking about what it might be like just to hold his hand. Lost in curious thought, she leaned her head back against the frame of the window and watched multicolored birds flit from tree branch to tree branch.
