She didn't hang out with many people, not outside of her siblings. Call it pathetic, call it misguided, whatever. But she just never seemed to get out of the shell of the quadruplets. However, when they went off on their own super secret adventures that they refused to tell her about because they feared her judgement, she was left to fend for herself.
She had thought that at least one of them would join her in Hogsmeade today, but it appeared they were all far too busy with their own drama to care that their sister wanted to go check out Phantasie (for the thousandth time, but whatever). Juliet was very fond of the little shop. The muggle goods reminded her of a world she'd left behind. It made her feel a little more grounded.
As she browsed a selection of muggle board games, many of which her siblings and her used to play when they were little, Juliet began to speak her worries aloud, without realizing it. "Oh, no, Juliet, we're not doing anything. Oh no, Juliet, we're too busy to go to Hogsmeade. Pfft. They just don't want to hang out with me. All because I try to keep their best interests at - " Her mumbling was cut short when she looked sideways, catching the eye of some of the other patrons in the shop. Well. Talking to yourself wasn't a sign of insanity or anything, right?
Hogsmeade days were fun. Kathleen wished that there was lots and lots of them. It was really nice to get out of the castle for a bit. Grabbing Adie by the hand, they moved through the street. "Where do you want to go first?" she asked her best friend. The answer ended up being phantasie so off in that way they went. Kathleen didn't really like the books too much, because reading was hard, and she preferred not to do it if she didn't have to. Unless it was about dragons, then she could deal with it. But she did like looking at the games, maybe she'd find a fun one that they could play?
"Hey Adie, what do you think of this?" she picked up a board game, holding it out to her friend. Behind Adie she noticed Juliet, who seemed to be muttering about things to herself. They caught each other's eyes, and Kath smiled. "Hi!" She didn't really know her, but they were in the same year, and Kathleen would say hello to anyone and everyone. So that was okay. Maybe she would be nice, and then could play a new game with them when they decided what they were getting.

It was a Hogsmeade day, so they got to go run around town for a bit instead of simply being menaces in the castle. Her step-brother was old enough to come with them this year, but he seemed to be continuing to refuse to have anything to do with her, so while she pouted she decided she would just go with Kath instead. She didn’t understand why he didn’t like her when he had obviously made friends with other people, there was nothing wrong with her obviously so the issue must be him. Maybe he was taking out his dislike for their parents marriage out on her or something? That sounded like it could be plausible honestly.
Anyway, Kath asked her where she wanted to go first and she pointed to the game store. Surely the two of them could get some new games to play together there right? Maybe they could even get ones that could have lots of players so that they could rope others into playing with them! That sounded like a lot of fun, and so now they just had to find the right game. Kath held a game out to her and she took it to look at the back and read what it was about. Though, then Kath was saying hi to someone behind her and she turned and waved with a smile. ”Hi! Looking for games too?” she asked the girl with a smile. ”You should play with us sometime,” she said with a nod, she thought Kath would agree too.
Juliet hadn't known what kind of reaction she'd get out of the other two girls once they caught her talking to herself. However, it was actually much friendlier than she could have pictured. Brightening as Kath first greeted her, then Adie followed, Juliet moved closer to the pair. She'd seen them hanging out before, and had envied the sort of friendship they seemed to share.
She smiled even more widely when Adie suggested Juliet join them for a game sometime. "Hi!" She said, greeting both of them at once, the word infused with the excitement she felt. "I love games. What kinds do you two play? We should definitely play some together." She agreed, ever-eager.
Ooh had they just made a new friend? That was kind of exciting. She liked talking to new people. Especially people that seemed to like games. Games were even better the more people that there were in them, so that was definitely a bonus. "All games," she said decisively, not caring if it was not the most useful response that she could have given, but it was more or less true. She did like lots of games.
"You should play with us!" Adie had already offered, but she was just confirming that she thought it was a good idea. "We can pick out something fun and new and play that." It was an excellent decision, and it was going to be great fun.

Clearly they had just made a new friend, and now they needed to solidify that friendship by playing board games. How else did one solidify friendships? Now they just needed to figure out what games they wanted to play. Kath said they were interested in all types, and Adie nodded as that was true. ”All games are good,” she said with a smile. As long as everyone was having fun then it was a great game and they should play it over and over again until they wanted to toss it out a window. Kath confirmed that the other girl should play games with them and Adie smiled.
”Well, we’re in a store full of fun and new games. Why don’t we let our new friend pick the game?” she suggested with a smile. That was the polite thing to do right? Besides, if they let her pick the game it told them a little bit about her and then they could just all start off on the right foot. Speaking of, there was a game that involved all sorts of feet on color circles apparently as she was looking at something called Twister. It looked fun, and very physical for some reason, but that was fine. ”What sort of game would you like to play with us?” she asked Juliet with a smile.
