    “Well it just occurred to me-
    The one that I need could be right here by my side”

    Delight had tried to keep it to herself for as long as she could. It was bad enough hearing her sister’s reactions this morning from other Hufflepuffs, and having Ruby at least going out of her way to avoid her. She had thought she was doing the sensible thing- prior to meeting Miss Lovegood she had thought to sever her father’s tie with the girl anyway, so there had been no point informing her sisters.

    But then she’d heard repeated to her some of the things they had said over lunch. Did they think her complicit in some vicious deceit? They could not honestly believe she was their Papa’s favourite, could they? Surely they were the ones he cared more about, for he had obviously planned to tell them in better circumstances than via letter and telling her to give up her weekend to meet Miss Lovegood. They had been favoured enough not to have to shoulder the burden of secrecy!

    With no sign of RUby at least returning to the dorm and Lois nowhere to be found, Delight had stepped outside the castle for some air. The moment she was out of people’s gaze, however, it all became so much worse and the tears began pricking at her eyes. They were never going to forgive her, she knew it. She might have tried to escape down to the lake again, had she not spotted a familiar shape in one of the greenhouses where several students were working on their herbology projects. The Hufflepuff let herself in quietly and caught the Ravenclaw on the arm.

    “Ben-” She began quite urgently, but her voice caught and the prickling tears began to fall unbidden. “They hate me.” Delight finished with a desperate whisper.

    Ben Turner was not a boy who was in tune with emotions—his or anyone else’s. Awkward to a fault in this regard, the moment he had heard the gossip about the Minister and Miss Lovegood, he had begun actively avoiding Delight for fear that she might be upset—and for fear that his uselessness might only make matters worse. Of course he felt terrible about this, but not terrible enough to change his behaviour. The look on the younger Miss Urquart’s face in the common room of late was enough to reassure him that his decision was a sound one.

    He worked with Somersby to study for their Herbology practical, taking advantage of the fact that the practical component of their Astronomy OWL wasn’t until after dinner. He did not see her until she was almost-literally upon him, and anxiety seized his chest as he spotted the tell-tale sign of tears upon her cheeks.

    “Not here,” he chided her gently, grabbing the Hufflepuff by the hand to lead her outside the greenhouse. Whether for his good or for hers, Ben couldn’t have said, but whatever was going on, it was best done out of the public eye.

    This is a Téble
