    During the COB
    After a waltz with one of her male friends she excused herself and went to the bathroom. Her bladder couldn’t hold much longer-she shouldn’t have consumed that much juice. Feeling as though that the nearest one were occupied by the guest she opted to go one that was farthest from the ball.  

    Once she relieved herself, she exited the bathroom. As she left a sudden explosion have occurred right in front of her. Thankfully she was not hit for what a shame if it did! She spent hours with Daffy in dressing up and her mother won't appreciate it if she destroyed a new gown. She coughed a bit as she moved her gloved hand in an attempt to clear the smoke. “What do you think are you doing?!” She shouted with an authoritative tone. It was their last night at school, couldn’t the student have waited until he got home to do none sense.

    Alvis was not in attendance to the ball. Why would he be? For one, he was underaged; two, he wasn't an up-and-coming young lady; and three, even if he had met the requirements to go he surely would've opted out. He didn't want to celebrate the apparent womanhood of those snobby high-class wenches. He'd rather spend his time doing more important stuff, like... blowing up fruit, for example.

    The young Slytherin boy was alone in some random hallway; he could hear the faint sounds of the party not far off. In one hand, he held a basket of slightly withered fruit - in the other, his wand. He leaned against the stone wall, setting down the basket but not before he'd fished a bruised apple from its contents. With a yawn, he tossed it into the air and pointed his wand, one eye squinted. He had to aim perfectly.

    "Confringo!" Light shot from the tip of his wand, striking the apple and causing it to burt into a miniature explosion of fire and fruit bits. It would've been glorious - had it not been for the well-dressed upperclassman who'd exited from the bathroom opposite to him at the wrong time and was now gasping at him in horror. A stormy expression crossed his face, and he slumped his shoulders. Great - now he was gonna get a scolding. He waved a hand dismissively. "I was practicing," he drawled, "It didn't hit you or anything, huh?" It was supposed to be a question of concern, but it sounded far too sarcastic.

    Once the smoke had cleared up the troublemaker was revealed to be a young man probably in his third or fourth year. Kat doesn’t recognize the boy so he probably didn’t belong in Ravenclaw nor the upper/middle class.

    The walls that surrounded them were decorated what look liked bits of food which smelled a bit funny. The tone that he used also did not sit well with her. “Practicing? You do remember that it is against the rules to use a wand in the corridor.” she said with a brow raised. He could have done it in an empty classroom or in their dorm. That would have made her night much easier as she did not have to deal with him.

    “I'm not hurt but what a mess you’ve made.” She added. After a moment, a short high pitched shriek escaped the wide-eyed girl as she realized she was also covered with the mess as she finally felt the stickiness in her forearms and face. What a great way to ruin her night.

    Alvis cringed inwardly. Right - rules. He was supposed to follow those, wasn't he? He imagined that this rich girl would have no qualms with reporting him to Professor Something-or-Other, and then he'd be in for a hard time for sure. It became even more obvious that he'd be in heaps of trouble when the smoke dissipated and he was given a clear view of Katherine's dress.

    The boy bit down on his lip,  stepping away just as Katherin screamed abruptly. It was hard not to laugh; after all, she was dripping with apply guts. He doubted she would be fine going back to the ball like that. As much as he didn't want to help her, he preferred to avoid detention when possible. Maybe.... He lifted his wand just slightly. "Look - what if I helped you clean up? Shouldn't be too hard. Though in my defense, y'should've looked before coming out into the hall."

    He thinks it was her fault?! While he did have a point, the prefect did not appreciate the tone he used at her. It was sounded disrespectful! What if a staff or someone important was the one who got caught in his ‘practice’. “Ten points from your house for breaking the rules Mister-- who are you again?” While the earlier procession did tell which house was close to winning the cup, it probably wasn’t too late for her to remove points as tomorrow was the formal announcement. If not then she was doing this to give the boy a hint that she had authority against him.

    “And you will help me or I won’t hesitate to give you punishment.” She warned. That was probably enough to scare him and hopefully not repeat the same mistake. She actually didn’t know how exactly this boy could help her get cleaned up. “This is awful,” she whispered to herself as she took out a handkerchief. The rotting stench hit her nose once again and Kat couldn’t helped release an annoyed sound. Alfie was a lucky that she wasn't the sort to lash out.

    Alvis' eyes bugged, and a grim shadow fell over his youthful features.Ten points?! And right at the end of the year... As if the snotty upper class, pureblood elitists in his house didn't have enough of a reason to hate him. Deep down, he knew that he deserved this - he had been unnecessarily rude to Katherine, right after he'd ruined her - probably very expensive - dress. It was his fault. But he was in a poor mood, and things just didn't seem to be going his way.

    "Alvis. Alvis Castor," he would mumble, in response to Katherine's inquiry of his name. He could've lied, but he was probably ankle-deep in enough trouble at this point. When she demanded his help, he would approach and stop just a few feet from the older girl. He wrinkled his nose; the aftermath smelled much worse closer up. He drew in a breath. "Would you let me try a spell, o-or would you rather do this the hard way?"

    Kath felt she might have been too harsh on the slytherin. He probably didn’t mean to make her smell like a can of garbage but rules where rules. He sure was lucky that it wasn’t one of the newly debuted prefects or the headmaster who were taking points, they would probably hang him by the thumb or do some other victorian punishments.

    Using his wand was probably the better option. It would take hours for him to get her to smell like flowers again if he were to do it manually. Plus it was probably going to look inappropriate,“Well, Mr Castor I suppose trying a spell would be better for the both of us” Because the sooner Alfie was had cleaned up his mess, the sooner she can return to the Ball. “But you better not plan on turning me into a goat.”
