He had listened to Lucy’s words, he had gotten enough courage to speak with Roxanne. At first he was right, it was awkward, she avoided eye contact with him, she stuttered but as time progressed it got better, Jay knew he’d have to grow up again sometime, he had a job he had to go back to, a life he had started but it was nice being at Hogwarts while he still could. He walked through the halls, taking in the memories, a bottle of aging potion in his hand he had made himself with the help of the Professor. With just a sip, everything would all go back to the way it was, normal. But he had to say goodbye first, to his friends and to Lucy. He had been thinking about her a lot, maybe a little too much, he tried to make his thoughts drift else where but they’d usually just return back to her. It was dinner time and he hoped she’d be in The Great Hall, he walked in, his eyes scanned through the Hufflepuff table until he finally spotted her, a smile on his lips, he walked towards her, but why did he feel nervous?
Lucy took a last drink from her cup of pumpkin juice, putting it carefully on the table and smiling across the table to her friend and dorm mate, Mia. She wasn’t really paying attention to what was going on around the Great Hall; it was far too noisy, far too many people in it all at once. She wiped her mouth and began standing up, mouthing to Mia that she’d meet her back up in their room. Lucy picked up her belongings and waved bye to her friend, turning around to walk out of the hall. She noticed the boy walking towards her, taking her a second to recognize him. She grinned, and waved at him excitedly, meeting him halfway. Lucy hadn’t seen him since the last time they had spoken, a couple of weeks ago. “Hey!” She slung her bag over her shoulder and opened her arms to hug Jay, before stopping herself momentarily, letting the awkwardness arise at the fact she’d almost hugged a boy she’s only spoken to once before.
Jay was glad he didn’t have to go and get involved in a conversation with other strangers, not that he minded, he just didn’t want to make more friends, it’d be harder to leave if he did. It was hard to leave now, he really didn’t want to go, but by the end of the week, he’d be gone and he’d back to his old self, Jay looked down at her once she was close, a smile tugged at the corner of his lips, the way she raised her arms to hug him and suddenly hesitated it was sorta cute. Okay. It was really cute. He opened his arms and pulled her into a hug with a bright smile, “Hugs are always nice, even if its to someone you’ve barely met, so don’t worry.” He slowly pulled back and rocked back and forth on his heels, why was he nervous? He didn’t quite know himself, “So.. I guess I kinda wanted to say goodbye, should we walk and talk?”
Lucy laughed as he pulled her into the hug, glad that he burned that bridge so confidently before she had. She hugged him tightly, nodding and agreeing. “Hugs are always more than nice. You’re right.” Her smile fell, however as he reported the last bit. Leaving? Already? Her brow furrowed, but she nodded, leading the way out of the Great Hall. It was too noisy in there anyway, they would have never gotten any talking done in there. Plus, people would see them, and that would just raise questions. She hated how quickly small things fired rumors. She walked them out of the Hall quickly, finally slowing her pace down to walk beside him when they were out of earshot, out of the door way. She kept her gaze on the floor. “So you’re leaving? Like, for sure? There’s no convincing you to stay?”
