    Skipping Stones
    #1
    Open Thread 
    Munny was looking forward to the Easter Break and going home for the weekend. He didn't have a lot planned other than the usual things but it would be nice to be free from the rigors of the school environment, if only for a couple of days. That was still a couple of days away though and he was feeling rather bored.

    Deciding to head outside after classes had ended, he ended up by the black lake. Picking up a round, flat stone, he held it in his hand for a bit before tossing it towards the lake. He watched as it skipped a few times before stopping. Deciding that he had found something to kill a bit of time, he began to look for another stone.

    The third year had been following her cat among the grounds for a while now, finding no harm in letting it choose where they would settle. It seemed to find the shores of the Black Lake a satisfactory location as Fairy abruptly laid down in a grassy sunny spot not far from the shore. She almost sat down, a book tucked under her arm along with paper and a self-inking quill, she had planned to do homework, but it seemed she was not alone. She vaguely recognized the boy. He was one of the older Gryffindor quidditch boys. The sport had always been far too rough in her opinion. He was a MacFusty, she knew that, and she was fairly certain his first name started with a M as well, though she did not know that.

    The MacFusty were an odd bunch. While they were a part of the upper class they tended to be one of the most scandalized families of the upper class, and in her opinion, that fact basically rendered their higher status meaningless to her, and she could interact with them with little jealous. Still, there was some as they still had their fair share of money - likely the only reason they still were upper class, and that fact left her feelings of them quite a mess and still with a hint of jealousy that her branch of the family no long had such money. Still, she was unbothered by interacting with on while she was still young. As she got older, she would likely to go out of her way to avoid the clan before any association with them prevented her from marrying someone from a well-off family.

    She watched the stone skim across the surface and sink before she made her way over, young enough that the mandated length of her skirt that hung roughly an inch above her boot meant she did not yet have to worry about the dress underneath her robe to get dirty. "Mr. MacFusty, greetings. That was quite impressive. How do you do it, if I may ask?"

    Munny had no clue who the blond girl was but assumed she knew his name due to Quidditch. It would be entirely impossible for anyone who paid any attention to the games to not know a name or two of who the players of the sport were. He didn't pay her much mind when he had seen her with a book since she wasn't of much interest to him.

    It wasn't until she outright spoke to him that he paid her his full attention. "Greetings," he said in return before chuckling at her question. "It isn't so impressive as it isn't very difficult." Picking up another stone, he held it in a way so that she could get a good look at it. "You want to find a smooth, kind of round stone like this and you toss it like this." Demonstrating the toss, he watched the rock skip before turning to the young girl with a smile.

    "Now you try."
