PostSubject: Lost In Oblivion :: OPEN ::   28th July 2010, 01:15

It was a particularly cold night and René had difficulty sleeping. It had been several days since her mother had left her at the dingy inn and she'd boarded a train alone to make her way to Hogwarts. Everyone was friendly here, everyone wanted to accept her and yet she had this burning feeling in her that she had to go home, her mother was alone in the house with her father and who knew what he would do if he didn't like whatever explanation she came up with for where René was and how it was possible to send her off without any money.

René remembered the flash of bright gold in the dark depths of the wizard bank she'd visited with her mother and closed her eyes, seeing again those dank tunnels in a blur. She hadn't really gotten a good look at anything until they'd reached her mother's vault but every blurry image stuck in her head. She shifted on the mattress and felt the aftermath of the last meeting she'd had with her father. Her back, arms and legs were still covered in bruises but she'd managed to cover it up pretty well while around the other kids in the school.

A bed squeaked nearby and René's eyes flew open, there was no chance of her getting any sleep this night. She quietly flung her legs over the edge of the bed and slipped her feet into her slippers before getting up and opening the case that held the violin her mother had bought her. Someone stirred nearby and she turned to stare into the face of a girl who slept beside her. The girl's eyes were wide open and she whispered softly, "You'll get into trouble if they find you in the corridors." Her eyes closed and she sank back into sleep, her breathing becoming instantly slower and deeper.

René stood there for several seconds, thinking over the options and decided to risk leaving the common room. She opened the door that led onto the landing, everything was quiet and dark. With conscious thought René held her wand up, she'd remembered to grab it just as she walked out of the dormitory and now cast one of the few spells her mother had taught her before she'd left her at the inn. "Lumos." A thin light lit the tip of the wand and René held the wand out in front of her to light the way, listening all the while for any sound of footsteps or shuffling - anything that would indicate someone was approaching. She made it all the way to the owlery without meeting anyone except a rather polite ghost who told her that she wasn't supposed to be out of bed and warned her to take a round about route because of another ghost who would surely make her rule breaking known to the whole castle.

She took the ghost's advice and it took her almost ten minutes longer to reach the owlery but once she got there she felt better. The common room had a way of making her feel tense, there were a lot of people in those rooms, always people around her, it made her anxious and jumpy. The quiet of the owlery was calming her. The more she looked around the happier she felt, it was the perfect place for her.

René pushed her sleeves up around her elbows and raised the violin to her shoulder bringing the bow down on the strings she closed eyes and swayed on the spot as the music poured out of the instrument she held. There was no thought now, only the music, her head bowed against the violin as if she would pass into the music and enticingly no one around her to see the scars on her arms or the bruises left behind. All sense of her left her and there was only the sound, long vibrant notes reaching up towards the sky...



Obviously without all the extras, just the violin music... but here's the song I'm imagining.

With his Armani wool jacket buttoned up, and his Gap scarf wrapped fashionably around his neck, Sebastian left the warmth of the castle for the chilly outdoors. No one would really say the castle was warm, but compared to the cool air blowing around outside, tonight the castle felt warm. Sebastian shoved his hands in his pockets, as he had forgotten his leather gloves, and made his way around the castle. He stopped now and then to take a closer look at the foundation, eying the quality of the stone work. The castle had nearly been completely destroyed in it's final battle, but the hopeful people had rebuilt the damn thing. Sebastian was determined to find a way to destroy the castle so that it could never be rebuilt again.

As his touring of the grounds continued, he soon came upon the Owlery and could swear he heard music. Curious, Sebastian slowly and quietly made his way up the stone steps, the music growing louder as he did. Once he reached the top landing, Sebastian stuck close to the wall in order to remain out of sight. If it were a Professor up here they wouldn't be pleased to see him spying on them. As he leaned around the wall he spotted the girl making the music. By her petite form, he could tell that she was young and obviously a student. She was playing a violin, and quite nicely, though he didn't really care much about music. Eying her more closely, Sebastian could see that her arms were tattooed with scars and bruises and he wondered how those had to come to be there. She didn't seem like much of a fighter as she played the violin, though he did take notice to the shape of her body and was curious as to how well the front looked. His curiosity getting the better of him, Sebastian cleared his throat loudly, stepping in the doorway slightly and leaning casually against the stone.

René heard the throat clearing through the music and jumped in fright, almost dropping the violin in her haste to cover up her arms. Her mouth had opened to scream but she saw the one who'd crept into the owlery and the sound died before it escaped her. She drew herself back, clutching the violin with both hands while holding it in front of her chest and stomach as if it was some kind of shield. She'd seen him entering the owlery and leaning against the wall and when he looked at her his eyes burned with some emotion René couldn't fathom.

He didn't look aggressive at all, he was merely leaning against the wall, watching her steadily. His gaze suddenly made her want to look away but she held herself still. "I'm sorry, did the music wake you?" Her words were breathless, she realized she'd been holding her breath since he'd cleared his throat and exhaled heavily. This had been her second trip to the owlery, she'd come back because no one had said anything about hearing music - she'd assumed the sound was drowned out in the distance from the owlery to the castle.

Sebastian smirked as the girl tried to cover her arms before he noticed the marks, oblivious to the fact that he had already seen them from behind. He smirked even more as his eyes roamed her body from head to toe, appreciating her small frame and beautiful face. She looked a bit younger than him, but that wasn't a problem in Sebastian's eyes.

Quote :
"I'm sorry, did the music wake you?"

Sebastian chuckled softly and shook his head. "That would be quite the distance for the sound to travel. I was walking nearby and heard it as I came close." He pushed himself away from the wall and took a few steps into the Owlery. "You play nice, from what I can tell anyway. I'm no musician." He smoke smoothly, his eyes engaged on hers.

((Sorry, it's a bit short - Didn't know what else to put.))

René didn't miss the look the boy had given her and she felt curious suddenly as to why he'd be there. He'd just told her he'd been walking past and had heard her so there was no real reason why'd come into the owlery - unless he was a really curious person... She felt a twinge of nervousness when he approached but he didn't come too close and she smiled at the compliment. Her father had always told her the music she played sounded dreadful and was a waste of time. She never did find out what he would rather have her do with her time, she'd never really asked - a question like that would've, no doubt, led to another bout of anger from him. "Thank you." She could hear the warmth in her voice, it really did mean a lot to her when people complimented the music.

"I don't think you really need to be a musician to appreciate music." She realized she was staring straight into his eyes, the world had dimmed around her but as soon as she realized this she looked away nervously, not knowing where to look now. She cleared her throat and stole quick glances at him. "Would you like me to play some more for you?" She held up the violin and stared at his mouth while smiling uncertainly.
