Who: Ernie Macmillan & Hazel Ridgebit
What: A promised lesson...
When: Wednesday, 30 March, evening
Where: Hogwarts, Hufflepuff common room
Hazel's lips were really starting to hurt, and not for any of the reasons she wished they were. Practicing her French horn for the fourth night in a row in the corner of the common room, she was beginning to think perhaps Ernie hadn't really meant he wanted another lesson, at least not from her. She also didn't feel exactly fit to be giving any lessons, as her shortness of breath and chapped lips attested to how very little regular practice she'd been doing since O.W.L. year. It was just so hard, keeping up with everything, but if her attempts to attract the attention of a boy made her a better horn player, well.
That wouldn't be any sort of trade-off at all.
Flipping through her sheet music and feeling bored by every last note, Hazel puffed a little sigh into the mouthpiece of her horn, wondering if perhaps Brenna had given it up over a boy, too.
