Susan really didn't want to be at the ball any more. Not because she had better things to do, or that she had been thinking about this for weeks, but the crowd was oppressive, the look on Weasley's face was making her stomach turn, and just the whole atmosphere in general was starting to overwhelm her.
But she'd tried, and the panic attack had been held at bay long enough. Now she just needed the fresh air and headed home. Cass knew how much she hated that sort of thing, so probably wouldn't be surprised when she fled home. Closing her door behind her, she breathed a sigh of relief when she was back in her familiar surroundings, alone, and with blissful silence and plenty of air to breathe.
