Who: Nikolas, Lucy, & Daphne. What: A belated meeting. And the beginning of some problems. Where: The library. When: Wednesday, 17 February. Not long before curfew. Rating/Warning: PG? Maybe a bit higher if there is language involved later? Who knowws.
Although he and Lucy had made some very indefinite plans to do "something" on Valentine's Day - even if they'd really only been together for a week - it had unfortunately not come to pass. Friday night found Nikolas feeling a bit under the weather, and by Sunday morning he was still getting over a passing illness that had kept him dorm-ridden all through Saturday. As much as he liked spending time with Lucy, he was tired, and still not entirely himself, and didn't really want to do anything but sleep on the holiday itself.
He'd seen her at Animagus training, at least. It didn't feel right to skip out even if he still wasn't quite well. But they'd decided to meet on Wednesday night. The library seemed safe enough at the appointed time - not many people remained there so close to curfew. At least not at this point in the year, when exams were a long way off. It had been quite easy to find an unpopulated corner towards the back, near a collection of books he felt sure no one was going to feel a need to use right now.
Feigning studying, Nikolas waited with a random book open in front of him.
