Meiriona returned alone to the lakeshore after spending time with the hippogriffs and Cathrine expecting to see James and Lily still there, talking. Or, at the very least, she had expected to see James skipping rocks and waiting for her. When she didn't see anyone there, though, she frowned. That was weird and unlike him.
She sighed, kicking at the ground for a moment before picking up a rock and throwing it into the water. It sank instantly. "So much for that," she groaned, tucking hair behind her ears and letting out another long sigh.
