Who: Padma Patil, OPEN (Students, or anyone who wants to be in Hogsmeade) When: Saturday, the 6th, evening Where: Hogsmeade. What: Shopping. Rating: TBA Open/Closed: Closed
Padma meant to leave early for Hogsmeade. She had no actual plans to do anything, aside from pick up some sweets or something, but she wanted to get away from the castle. As it urned out though, she ended up spending the morning sorting out four second year girls who somehow managed to turn one of the unused third year classrooms into a miniature rainforest while they were practicing Charms.
Padma managed to get the Charms undone with a bit of last minute help from Professor Flitwick, and gave out detentions for the minor catfight the girls managed to get into in the meantime, but by the time she was finished, it was already almost sundown.
Padma was frustrated, and that was probably why she ignored her own advice to not go anywhere alone, even Hogsmeade, and set out down the path anyway. It wouldn't be long, there were plenty of people in town, and if she stayed any longer, she might be tempted to petrify two of the four girls. (The ones that were still sniping at each other when she left them, at least.)
Still, she didn't dawdle, and walked down the path toward Hogsmeade a bit quickly, head down and coat collar pulled up against the chill in the evening air.
