RP: Peter & James
Who: Peter & James
What: Friends that fight monsters together..?
Where: Seventh floor corridors
When: 6th June, afternoon
it had been another bright day. Cooler than some of the days before, but still easily warm enough to spend the day outside. James had spent most of his Sunday under the old tree by the lake. The same spot where he and his friends, and later on Lily, had often spent sunny free periods and evenings. Only without the homework, thankfully. Old habits and all that.
Still, he'd fancied a fly before dinner and so had popped inside to grab his broom from Gryffindor tower. James was just on his way there, stepping out from behind a tapestry depicting a particularly disgusting case of splattergroit, when he all but walked straight into Peter.
"Bloody hell. Sorry Wormtail."
Obviously it would be him. He doubted many other people here knew that passageway existed. Still, it wasn't exactly ideal. James hesitated, rocking on his heels for a moment as he searched for something to say.... 'Nice weather we're having' was apparently all his idiot brain could come up with, and he would sooner snog Snape than stoop that low.
James sighed, "Pete, I don't really have-" And then he stopped. There was a noise coming from the far end of the corridor, heavy and low, but repetitive. Like rumbling footsteps. Definitely not a normal corridor type noise, even for Hogwarts.
"Do you hear that?" He asked, some forgotten, Order-ish part of him kicking in so that his wand was suddenly in his hand. Instinctively, James took a few steps closer to Peter so they were shoulder to shoulder, peering down the hallway.
