One might think that having a magical education would make studying more interesting. Perhaps that was true at times. But at other times, it was still studying, and no matter the content that was only so much that a person could take at a time. Abandoning her books for a moment, she went for a wander around the library.
It was huge, and full of so many different things, things that she probably couldn't even imagine, and yet it didn't quite fill her with that sense of wonder. It was a room full of books. Maybe it should illicit a different reaction to walking through a library in the muggle world, after all, there was magic, and didn't that change things? Shouldn't that change things? It didn't quite feel like that sometimes. Lorelei supposed that it was a matter of what had become the norm.
Slightly distracted, she tripped over the legs of a chair that she was walking past. "Ah!" Though she managed to catch herself on the bookshelf, that it turn knocked a couple of books to the floor. She winced at the noise, looking down at them.

Haze felt like the library was her home. As she was coming up to her last year at Hogwarts she had upped her hours of studying in the hope that she might do well in her exams. If she had actually been honest with herself, an hour or two of revision here and there would have been good enough but she was so determined to prove her father wrong and pass with excellent grades.
So here she was again, with her head in a book and her mind focused on the task at hand. It wasn't particularly busy today so she hadn't been distracted much at all, this had resulted in quick naps here and there. Not much help to her studies. However she soon woke with a start when she felt her chair move slightly and books behind her drop to the floor. "Ahh.." she involuntarily let out a low noise, one which she hadn't been expecting. "What was that?" Turning around a girl was stood looking at the book. Haze guessed she was the one who'd dropped them. Getting up, she bent down and lifted some of the books up. "You OK? They didn't fall on you did they?"
Lorelei was half expecting the librarian to swoop in and tell her off about the noise, and about the books that were currently on the floor. But by through some miracle she seemed to be safe from that wrath. At least for the time being. She was still staring at the books with a grimace, when she heard a voice. Oh. Right. There'd been a person in the chair that she'd tripped over.
"No, they didn't, I'm fine," she said quickly, bobbing down to pick up the other books. She glanced briefly at their titles, hoping perhaps they might hold something of interest. But if they did, they weren't capturing her interest. "I'm sorry about that." The girl didn't seem as though she was about to get into a fight with her tripping over her chair, but it never hurt to cover your bases.

In Haze’s experience, the library was usually quite quiet. To be honest she hadn’t really come across anyone whilst studying. The place was so big and most students just studied in their rooms or in the common area. She had been surprised that her chair had been the cause of the poor girl tripping over. Maybe she should have tucked herself in a bit further.
“Good,” she said with a smile, glad that she wouldn’t have to accompany anyone to the hospital wing (she hated it in there). She watched as the girl started to pick the books up with her. Glancing over the titles, they weren’t particularly exciting and she wondered if the other girl had knocked them from the shelf or had dropped them. “That’s OK. I was more worried about you being injured. None of them landed on your head, did they?” Her blue eyes glanced over the girl, she didn’t think she had met her before. She looked slightly younger and hadn’t spotted her around the Ravenclaw common room.
Maybe she should just find a secluded corner of the school and never leave it. That sounded like a better idea. Being around other people was a stressful experience, especially if you were doing things like tripping over chairs, and knocking books to the floor. She would much prefer to just keep to herself, and not have to deal with any of it.
"I'm fine," she said quickly, tucking a strand of hair behind her ears. "They didn't, no, it's fine," getting to her feet, she began putting the books back on the shelf. Both because she couldn't just leave them on the floor, and it gave her something to do rather than just sitting there. "Thank you." Right, that was polite, she'd asked how she was, thanking her was polite.

Glad the girl hadn't hurt herself, Haze sat back down. She didn't really fancy a trip to the hospital wing and she wasn't sure how to cure concussion with a spell. Getting back to her reading, she could hear the girl continuing to pick the books up from the floor. "What brings you to the library then?" she asked, not looking up from her book trying to distract herself from what she was actually meant to be doing. "I'm guessing it wasn't to mess this place up?" Haze wasn't too sure if the girl would want to talk but it was worth a go.
Oh the girl was still talking. Oh. Okay. She was nice, at least. But Lorelei still felt uncomfortable. Especially considering the circumstances that had started them talking. She chewed on her lip, as she continued putting the books away. "I - oh - uh - no," she stumbled, and then gave a sheepish smile. "Destroying books wasn't my intention."
"I was just trying to find something to read. Find something that would interest me." Which shouldn't have been so difficult in a library full of books, there should have been a lot there that caught her attention. There was a couple moments pause. Oh. She should return the question. "What about you?"
