"Having to go running to get some exposure isn't much of a compromise. I would much rather spend my time asleep," he replied. "I would also hardly call that an adventure. There was any danger or excitement." Or well there had been some excitement but it had nothing to do with the Restricted Section as its own thing.

Kameron felt the corner of his mouth twitch upwards. "Stop thinking small. Where's your sense of adventure?" Maybe that was just the Gryffindor in him though. He wasn't sure. "And no, it's not fair, because you know how I feel about the secrecy."

"Because I don't run. Or jog." Plus there was something said about mornings and that was definitely a no thanks. Kameron much preferred to get sleep instead. "You'll have to go without me I'm afraid. I'll spend my time happily asleep."

Kameron was ready to defend himself some more because Edgar was impossible at times, so the abrupt change of topic threw him for a second. "Running...?" he asked for clarification that he'd heard correct. His eyebrows drew together and he frowned. "No thank you."

"Not in a creepy way. Sometimes they're hard to ignore when they're being really noisy though," he explained. It wasn't like he went out of his way to do it. It was just sort of there when they decided to make out in the common room. Which happened more than he was really comfortable with.

Brilliant was definitely a good sign. Okay. He hadn't screwed it up then. That was good. Not that he'd been really worried. But it was nice to hear all the same. "I'm not saying that," he said with a shrug. "I would, however, say that I'm just doing a mix of what comes naturally to me and what I've seen older students doing." Though that last bit had definitely been more from the older students.

The gasp Kameron heard was promising if nothing else. He hadn't been completely sure of himself going in, mostly aiming for the shock factor. It gave him a bit more confidence in the situation. This was unlike anything he'd ever done before, considering he had never kissed anyone before. The fact that he hadn't gotten shoved back had to mean he was doing something right, right?
Either way, he kept it up for a moment longer, just enough for them both to get a feel of it, before moving away again to look at Edgar. "Was that alright then?" he asked to make sure he hadn't read things incorrectly.

Although the kissing was nice and although he'd let Edgar make the first move this time, Kameron did enjoy having the upper hand in this situation. He moved just enough to break the contact with their mouths, but he didn't withdraw fully like he had done previously, instead moving to place kisses along the snake's jawline, hoping to catch him off guard again. That was always fun.

Although he'd told himself he wasn't going to move closer, that he was going to just be chill this time, Kameron found himself taking a step closer, just to fill in the gap a bit more. But he didn't push things more than that. Although they'd shared very few kisses so far, and hopefully it was just a so far, there was something different in this one and he wanted to keep a hold of that for a little bit longer.

"Yes, marriage. It was the first awful thing I thought of." It didn't used to be so awful, but then his family fell apart. Now he wanted to avoid getting hurt like that again at all costs.
There was little time to reflect on that though, as Edgar's lips finally met his. His hands moved to rest on the other boy's torso, not pulling him closer this time. This time he just let things go slowly, softly.

"You're scared," he accused him. "You're scared and you're stalling. It's just a kiss. It's not like I'm making you marry me or something." That probably a terrible comparison given the situation but it was the first thing Kameron had thought of that was horrible.

"Yes, I'm sure," Kameron replied trying to not sound impatient. There was no reason for impatience and it wasn't like he couldn't just take matters into his own hands if he really wanted it so badly. "Unless you're too scared?"
