[font "tempus sans itc" The blonde woman looked down at the parchment before her. She was already needed to grade papers, and she was nervous about it. She was silently kicking herself, but deep down she knew she was glad to be back here. Even if she was one of the youngest professor's ever to work for Hogwarts. She chewed on her lip lightly as she flipped though each student's papers. Some of the answer's were wrong, and in a way she felt like she was doing them dirty by giving them a bad grade. That's what being a professor was about.]
[font "tempus sans itc" She looked up and over her shoulder. The sun was still shining, and the weather was still perfect outside. She pushed herself away from the desk and went to open the window. She let in the fresh air, and a small smile crossed over her lips. Watching as the students were out about on the grounds, made her heart lighter. She felt like she was finally home once more. She jumped slightly when she heard Teddy's voice, and realized she had gotten wrapped up in her thoughts. Her cheeks turned a light shade of pink as she turned around.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He was speaking about the Triwizard Tournament, and her heart sank a bit. She honestly didn't know how to feel about it. Her uncle had his name thrown in there, and that's when Lord Voldemort had come back. The worst time of their lives. She shuddered at the thought of it. [#FFB6C1 "I honestly don't know what to think of it.. I'm scared for the students, because I feel like something horrible is bound to happy like it did with Uncle Harry..."] she whispered. She then wrapped her arms around herself moving away from the window.]
[font "tempus sans itc" [#FFB6C1 "You aren't the only one who has a really bad feeling about all of this. I'm avoiding putting my name in, I don't think I can handle the challenges like my Uncle did.. Just thinking about it is making my stomach turn"] she admitted. She then closed the distance between them, and grabbed the front of his shirt, pulling him into the office. She closed the door behind him, before sliding her arms around his neck, and tangled her fingers into his hair. She was much shorter than he was.]
[font "tempus sans itc" That's one of the many things she loved about him. When he was standing beside her, she felt safe. She kept her fingers tangled in his hair, as she gently led his head down to her's. Her lips found his, and she kissed him gently. The kiss lasted for a little bit before she pulled back, her heart hammering inside of her chest, a slow smile spreading over her face. [#FFB6C1 "Let's not talk about this right now.. I know it's important, but I want to hear how your week has been"] she whispered. She kissed him again, before letting him go.]
[font "tempus sans itc" She felt like she hadn't seen him in months, when it's only been a week. When she would try seeing him, something always popped up, so having this time alone with him, is all that mattered to her at the moment. She moved back behind the desk and sat down. She pushed the parchment aside, as she waited for him to start talking. She wanted to hear about his first week, and how his students were. She felt her heart flutter a bit just watching him. She didn't fully understand why he chose her.]
[font "tempus sans itc" They had been the closest friends throughout school, and she knew he missed his parents more than anything. She was just lucky enough to have caught his attention. She pointed to a chair and smiled a bit. [#FFB6C1 "Sit, and start talking love"] she said lightly, as she leaned back wrapping her arms around herself. The fresh air felt amazing blowing though the room.]

[font "tempus sans itc" Luthrix let out a small sigh. Being back in school was something he had been looking forward too. That was until Morgan and her little followers came up behind him, and started taunting him. [#ff00ff "Come on little boy, why won't you even look at us? What are you? A God damn freak?"] she cooed. The other girls started calling him names as well, and he did his best to turn a deaf ear to them. Sometimes it was harder to do, than other times. Right now he couldn't really do anything, and he knew that. He could yell at a female.]
[font "tempus sans itc" His mother would roll around in her grave if that ever happened. He had been raised to treat women with respect, even if they treated him like that. He was about to finally say something, when a girl from his house walked over, poured the pumpkin juice on her head, and spoke. [b "I think the juice suits you. And honestly aren't we a little old to be toying with people like this?"] Luthrix was slightly surprised at that, but he couldn't help but smile a bit. Morgan's eyes narrowed.]
[font "tempus sans itc" [#ff00ff "You are going to pay for this Serena!"] she snapped. The dark haired female didn't seem to mind. Morgan huffed and turned on her heel and stalked off. The other's followed behind her, and the male broke out into a smile. [#0075D0 "Bloody hell, that was amazing. Thank you for that.."] he said softly, his thick Irish accent showing. That's one thing he hated about himself, he had a really thick accent, and people sometimes couldn't really understand him. He reached up and rubbed the back of his neck looking down.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He didn't really understand why he had a hard time talking to females. The only woman that he opened up to was his mother, and since she had died a couple of months ago, he really didn't have anyone else to talk too. Maybe this female would help. He looked up towards her, and slid down a little bit. [#0075D0 "Sorry for being slightly rude.. Take a seat. I'm Luthrix by the way, and thank you for saving me. I couldn't really do anything, because of her being a female"] he said with a sheepish smile, a slight blush coming to his cheeks.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He had seen this woman around before, and he never really had the chance to get to know her. Maybe things would be different this school year. Maybe this time he'll be able to open up, and focus on making friends instead of being so shut down. He cleared his throat and started talking again. [#0075D0 "What's this I hear about a Tournament? People are talking about how it was banned years ago, but it's coming back? If you don't know anything about it, it's okay"] he said as he turned his eyes down to his plate.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He reached for a slice of toast and the jam. He then spread the jam onto the bread, took a bite and let the silence wash over them. He didn't like how he was so nervous, but he did feel slightly comfortable around this female. Today was going to be interesting to say the least.]
It had been twenty-one years since the war had been fought and since it had been won. He like the other children of the main heroes had gone to school or were still in for their last year or so. And everything seemed to be quiet and calm. But in the young man's opinion it was almost too calm and like something was around the corner and bound to come up. One Edward (Teddy) Remus Lupin would be damned if he spoke of his thoughts to everyone. There was only one he trusted enough to let in fully and completely. Only one who had had even spoken these fears to. And she had been first his best friend and now that old enough the two were dating. Had been since he was sixteen and she was fifteen. Victorie Weasley had always been the one that he trusted and he would not trade her for anything or anyone.
All of that was going through his head and as a result, Teddy was not minding his hair or the fact that is had changed from it's natural brown to a fiery red that proved he was deep in thought. A habit or circumstance that seemed more likely than not as of late. For both he and Vic had been asked to become the current youngest professors of the school (Hogwarts) that they both had attended. Oh and to top things off, the Triwizard which had been banned when Victorie's uncles and his godfather had been at school. For some godforsaken reason the Ministry thought it would be a good idea to revive the tasks.
Lightly he knocked on the door and slowly pushed it open as it had been open the briefest of cracks. And instead of going in fully, Teddy just leaned upon the doorframe and let brown eyes fall on the beauty of the blonde young woman within the room. Well the office, her office. School had been back in school for about a week and the adjustments were interesting to say the very least. Sometimes he forgot they were no longer students. [#f1be0e "Sorry to bother you, Professor Weasley. But I wanted to be able to talk to you a bit.. Mostly about how it feels to be professors at our old school.. But more so what you think about them bringing back the Triwizard when we KNOW the stories of what had happened before. I mean I know we can join if we want.. But I just think something os coming."] He knew getting to the point would be for the best as she NEVER liked it when he was indirect or beat around the bush. Besides even had he, Victorie knew him better than anyone. She would have known the lie or indirectness and called him straight out on it. A trait he both loved and hated about the young woman depending on the circumstances and the situations.

Another year at school and another year the girl would have preferred to pretty much be on her own. It was normal and something she was good at. Her parents had died..no had been killed when she was about four and so her memories of them were fading. All she knew was what she was told and that was that they died as heroes and to keep peace that had come after the way. That was all fine and good, but she WANTED her mum and dad.. She didn't want to be another orphan who people looked at and pitied. Who people whispered about. And yet that seemed to be the case.
Her mind was wandering as always as she sat at the long table beneath the blue and bronze that were the colours of her house. It was still early and school had been back for about a week which meant everyone was still getting used to being back. Most the professors gor on them saying that they should be up and ready to be back. And then their were others who were a few years older, new like professors Lupin and Weasley who were relaxed and got where the students were coming from. So Serena could say she really did at least admire them.
Giggling and taunting broke through the silence or rather the quiet hum of them morning. And blue eyes came up to look down at the other end of the table. Morgan and her little clique seemed to find a new toy for the morning, a boy she had seen around often enough but never dared to talk to. It was the cackles and the words of being a freak that had the raven haired girl on her feet with a goblet of pumpkin juice in her hand. Silently she came up behind Morgan and poured it over her head. [b "I think the juice suits you. And honestly aren't we a little old to be toying with people like this?"] She asked with a smirk before turning to the boy and giving a weak smile as the other three girls had rushed off with on very pissed off Morgan shouting threats over her shoulder.
[b "Sorry...usually I'm their toy...I just couldn't sit and watch someone else endure those twits."] Serena said quietly.
