Who: Megan and Ernie When: Monday, After Classes Where: Hufflepuff Common Room What: Meg's decided to confess. Rating: Low Status: Incomplete/Closed
Classes had been harder today than normal. Maybe it was because she was so tired. Megan hadn't been feeling herself every since she got sick, but falling upon Lavender's body had made it worse. Whenever Megan closed her eyes she saw the pools of blood. Whenever Megan tried to sleep she saw the jagged teeth marks and the line across Lavender's throat. It wasn't something she could forget and everything else seemed empty and pointless beyond it.
Stan had been trying. She loved him for trying, but Megan couldn't gather the strength or desire to talk to him. He would ask her questions and try to make it better and she knew there wasn't anything that could make it better. Only time.
Curled up in a beanbag by the fire, Megan stared at her notes from the day. They didn't make any sense. Megan knew she was going to have to try harder if she wanted to pass any of her exams with a mark above a P, but she couldn't hear anything in class. Looking around the common room, Megan spotted Ernie. He'd have notes she could borrow. Of course, walking over to Ernie was likely to get her snapped at since he was so hard at work. Hopefully being his friend canceled out the fact that she was bothering him.
Megan crossed over the common room and stood next to Ernie. "Hey? Ernie? You busy?"
