@Cornelius // Astronomy tower
Ariel could remember the bowtruckle chaos, specifically hovering infront of a window on her broom, laughing as over dramatic students ran towards their dorms. She laughed now, bracing a hand on the window ledge to keep her balance and nodded her head “Yeah.. I remember that! I spent two days sneaking around and throwing twigs everywhere to confuse the old git, it was a right laugh!” it had been a good week, one Ariel had actually considered writing home about, which was rare. Still, Cornelius’ pranks never failed to brighten things up a little around here, and she appreciated them probably more than she should, considering.
Cornelius laughed with her and tried his best not to lean back too far on the ledge. “That’s brilliant!!” He said, remarking her comment of teasing Filtch with the twigs. “I’m glad my pranks are remembered…” he said, his laughter calming down. He let out a heavy sigh and leaned back against the wall that bordered the window. He looked down at his hands as he tried to think of something to talk about next; but noticed a crumbled paper under Ariel’s hand, out of the corner of his eye. “Whatcha got there?” he asked, pointing to the hidden paper.
