It should come as no surprise to learn that Lucy hadn't had many friends before this year came about. Although she was friendly with most of the girls in her dorm and a scattered few throughout her classes and year, she had only been able to call Roger and Branwen her close friends. Now, she had Nikolas and even she and Millicent had gotten along well enough. When she had been introduced to the rest asked to be apart of McGonagall's group, she had hoped this would help her make a few more friends.
Although they all got on well enough, she hadn't yet made the friends she thought she would. She was glad that both Sam and Seamus had decided to come along. It would give them all an opportunity to get to know each other a bit better.
"Yeah?" she asked, smiling slightly. "I'd been planning on going out tonight alone until I realized that it might be nice to have a little company."
