ooc; do you mind having susy?!
The entire school has been feeling a little off lately, between juggling school work, and doing extra credit work for Professor Sprout, Susan hardly had time to sit down. This was typical of the Hufflepuff, she was never the best student, but what she put her heart into she was able to excel in. Typically stuck in the library attempting to complete her Potions homework, or out in the gardens tending to the plants, it seemed Susan became a bit of a recluse. However, despite her busy schedule, there was one thing she always had time for; Her friends. There was nothing that meant more to her than being there for her friends, and while her close circle of friends might have been small; the most she could do was be for them whenever they needed her.
Finishing with the Chinese Chomping Cabbages a little early, Professor Sprout gave Susan praise for her work before sending the girl back to castle to clean up. The chance to have extra credit with Professor Sprout meant millions to Susan. Plants were one subject she knew so much about, she could understand them more than she could waving a wand around. Feeling slightly defeated that Professor Sprout didn't offer her any extra work, Susan headed back to the school.
Auburn red curls were pulled back from her pale green eyes with a dark red ribbon and her Herbology robes were covered in dirt. A few streaks of dirt marred typically flawless ivory skin on her face as she paid little attention to the dirt she might be trailing with her. Realizing she was thoroughly exhausted - perhaps it was a good thing she finished the cabbages early? Susan was looking forward to a nice warm bath, and a clean change of clothes. However, stepping into the common room, that future quickly diminished as she witnessed Ernie do one of his 'we need to talk' types of sighs. Frowning slightly, Susan tilted her head slightly, as she moved to the corner of the room where he sat.
"Everything all right, Ernie?" Voice was soft and gentle, carefully trying to figure out what could possibly be wrong. A natural instinct to make him feel better kicked in, as her look of concern tried to appear consoling, and comforting. Typical Susan Bones, without fail the girl was always able to push away her wants and needs to aid those of her friends.
