He was going to be a graduate soon which Philip was excited about. He was going to achieve all of his dreams. Well, he was going to try to anyway. He still had no real clue how one was supposed to do a business plan but that was something for him to worry about in the future. For now, he was going to master the basics and then once he felt ready, he would open his own place. He would be the next Honeydukes. He didn't think he could ever truly compete against the long standing candy store but his place would have his own flavor. It also probably wouldn't be in Hogsmeade so he wasn't too worried about that.
Sitting in one of the nooks on the ground floor, Philip dealt out cards for a solitaire game. Exploding Snap was only fun if you were playing with someone else so he was using a deck of regular, non-magical cards. Philip was a social spirit so being on his own was kind of boring so he was hoping that someone else would come along.
As the term came to an end, Angelo started wandering around more. He hated doing work, and worse, he hated sitting still, unless it was, like, to play a game or something. The end of the term was awful because he actually had to do well on his exams, even though he was kind of lost for what he wanted to do with his life.
Well, he knew what he wanted to do with his life: chill. He wanted a chill life. He hadn't told his mother that yet, but he doubted she would approve.
Angelo had just finished a walk out of doors when he reentered the castle and came across a fellow Hufflepuff, one older than him, playing a game of cards. "A person!" the younger boy declared, bouncing over with a wide grin. "What are you playing?"

Philip hadn't been playing his card game for every long when someone else came along. Finally. He was beginning to think he was invisible or something with the way that people kept just passing him by. He needed human company to feel happy and didn't do well when he was stuck being a loner.
"Solitaire. I've been playing because I'm bored," he said with a smile towards the younger boy that he recognized as being a fellow Hufflepuff. "What about you? What are you up to?"
The other boy's smile was encouraging. Of course, everything encouraged Angelo, but that was neither here nor there. "Don't be bored--I'm here now!" Angelo declared. He sat down across from his housemate, legs stretched out at angles away from his body. "I've been looking for someone to spend time with. Let's play something together!"
It was a request, really, even though it sounded like a demand. Angelo was just glad for the company.
