Kida wasn't too sure about being around so many people at Hogwarts. While sure, she liked the school there were just a bunch of people she didn't want to deal with. So the female had pulled her hair up into a pony tail and wandered off. The good thing about not being on the Quidditch team and not being a prefect meant she didn't have to deal with too many other people. So days like today just made things go a lot smoother for her.
Grabbing an apple out of the kitchen, she leaned against the counter. This wasn't too bad. Sure, there were house elves moving all around, but she wasn't sure what else she wanted to do. Maybe she could just...find someone to talk to? Or there had to be something else like that. She didn't have OWLS or NEWTS this year, so she needed to figure out something else. Anything was possible after all.
She could not stand a moment longer in the common room. It was too crowded and too many people were talking loudly. It had got to the point where Dahlia was ready to slap someone or at least tell someone off. Dahlia had the whole day been in a foul mood, making things fly. Not with magic but with her bare hands. She had quite literally dismembered one of the suits of armor because of the way it had looked at her. This meant at least detention with professor Redgrave who was the professor who saw it but it had all been worth it.
Her flaming red hair was now on a loose bun on top of her head when she finally snapped at a 4th year who was moving her bottles of ink too loudly. " I will not hesitate to murder you with a fork during breakfast if you don't shut up." She told her fellow housemate. There was a silence before one of her friends asked if everything was alright. Dahlia tilted her head and painted a smile that was hauntingly terrified seeing as her eyes were full of rage. " Of course. Everything is just peachy." Dahlia cooed. " Now, you better disappear from my sight before I stick something very sharp into your eye sockets." Her friends scampered away and Dahlia was left alone.
The girl did not stay put for too long and headed out in a manner of seconds. She was simply too annoyed to suffer anyone anymore. For a strange reason, Dahlia was now heading towards the kitchens. The discovery of it had been pure accident but it turned out to be a blessing. Dahlia could simply vanish into the kitchen and eat all the things she wanted while the house-elves served. It made her miss home. It made her miss her own kitchen.
With a rather sour look on her face, Dahlia noticed the other girl as she came but kept her voice cool. " Oh, hello." She had been taught to be polite, to swallow all her emotions in front of strangers after all.
Kida had been born with more money then anything else in the whole wide world. Her parents were never too worried about having to show her around anywhere, because she was going to be the best in their eyes. He knew how to act and she knew how to be a good daughter. She'd never do anything to upset the Whittaker name, and that was important. Maybe if she upset someone else, it wouldn't be the end of the world or anything else like that.
But she'd been in the kitchens and now with someone else with her, she wasn't sure what she needed to do or say. Looking at the other female, she tilted her head slightly. "Hello." It was best to not out right ask someone if they were feeling okay. The other girl would tell her if she wished for Kida to know. "You're in a bunch of my classes, correct?" She was almost positive that they were in the same year. If not, then they were close enough that they were able to see each other in classes and the like.
"Have you been studying for NEWTS as well?" It was what Kida had been doing almost nonstop. She adored it, but it was also stressful. Maybe there was something about having her nose to the grind stone?
Dahlia did not recognize the other girl. Well, perhaps remotely but the red head was too stubborn to admit anything. There was a hint of sneer in Dahlia's face but it was soon gone because she was taught to be polite. Even to mudbloods. Who was this other one then? How come Dahlia had not seen her? Obviously she had seen her but because she was simply too vain and too engrossed with herself, she hardly ever noticed anyone else expect herself.
" I think so." Dahlia finally said with a shrug. She hadn't come here to have a chitchat yet here she was, opening her mouth and talking to strangers. " Not really." That was an honest answer. " Have you?" Perhaps they could be use to each other? " My name is Dahlia. Dahlia Clementine." She introduced herself. " And you?"
"I think so. I think we're both seventh years." Kida wasn't really sure what was going on with the other girl. It was almost like a mini stroke or something. It was utterly facinating. But really, she wasn't sure what she should say to the other female. The name sounded mildly familiar, but not enough for Kida to place anywhere.
This wasn't going too great, but it also wasn't going too awful. So she wasn't sure if she needed to worry about anything or if she was going to just sit back and let life move on. "It's nice to have a name to match to your face." That wasn't super awkward or anything like that. " I'm Kida Whiattaker."
