    I Can Hear the Music

    She was, in fact, well aware of the rules stating that no one under their fifth year could attend the coming out ball, but that didn't mean she had to be pleased about such rules. Normally she didn't mind too much that she was excluded from social events due to her age simply because they were so far away that her only contact with them was reading about anything big that had happened from her next Witch Weekly. This one, however, was right here in the castle and she couldn't go. She swore she could hear the music, though that was likely because she was hovering in a nearby corridor where she could watch the comings and goings of the ball without, hopefully, getting caught. Honestly, watching the door probably made it worse, but she couldn't help wanting to be here, not after helping her cousin get ready. Ohh... it had been lovely, Delight had even let her try on her dress and it fit quite well if not a little long, but a different set of shoes could have fixed that issue.

    Two more years, she would tell herself, leaning against the wall, a frown lining her face as she watched the attendees move past.

    open to anyone from school [student, teacher, staff, other] or a cob attendee wondering past who notices her

    It was Maddie’s 5th circuit of the room, she wasn’t really engaged with the dancing, perhaps her social status, and the knowledge that she was so far beneath most people’s social notice had put off anyone who might have been inclined to ask her to dance. She didn’t mind so much, after all there was so much else to enjoy, the beautiful music, the wonderful dresses, everything was so fine and exquisite. However, the room was very warm, and Maddie was most unused to wearing such a constricting corset, it was a little after 11, before she needed to leave the room for a spot of air. Unwilling to fully leave the delights of the party, she slipped into one of the nearby corridors, which was cool and dark, and where the music from the hall drifted in only very faint strains.

    She was a little surprised to see another Hufflepuff loitering in the hallway, clearly trying to get as close to the action as she could without getting caught by a teacher. ’Demelza’ Maddie greeted with a rye smile. ’imagining what it would be like to attend are we?’ she added

    She couldn't help but panic at the sound of her name. Grrreaaat, she'd been caught. Whoever it was would probably scold her for being out and send her back to the dorms - hopefully without points counted of or a detention to speak of, but likelihood fate was not in her favor tonight, why would it be, it hadn't been for the whole month, which honestly she hadn't been prepared for, her horoscope had seemed so positive! Though honestly, she should know by now those are never what they seem to be.

    She shoulders sagged down though when she recognized Miss Backus. While she was one of the prefects, she had never gone out of her way to interact with her simply due to her sense classism. Well no, classism was the wrong term. She had nothing against the lower class, they just didn't benefit her really. Still, with the sixth year being one of their perfects she did know a few things about her. "Maddie..." she breathed, not as worried anymore. Yes, she could still punish her being a perfect, but Dezzie doubted she would.

    "I suppose. It just isn't fair the younger years aren't able to attend. I know perfectly fine how to compose myself," the third year would snort, glancing once more the doors.

    Maddie leant against the wall with the younger student for a moment. It was so close to the end of the year, there was no point in deducting points from her. Besides, Maddie couldn’t exactly blame her for wanting to be part of such a lovely evening, it was all that Maddie had wanted last year and she hadn’t been able to attend. This evening Cinderella had been able to go to the ball.

    ’It’ll come quickly enough Demelza’ she said with a smile, ’and then you will be sick of parties and balls.’ Maddie made a dramatic gesture with her hand against her forehead like a fainting debutante. Being a niece of the minister would no doubt mean she would have lots of opportunities to go to parties and balls, while Maddie was off working somewhere, working in a way Miss McGonagall would never have to. She gave a little twirl, ’What do you think of Miss Kelmthorps dress, it doesn’t like just as nice on me as it did on her, but it passes rather well doesn’t it!’ she said with a smile, keen to pass a few minutes in the cool of the hall, and seeing no harm in letting the third year stay for a few minutes, before sending her back to bed. The cup had already been announced, and there was no point in dinging her 5 points at this late stage of the year.
