Ellie gave a small, barely noticable wince at the mention of the owl. She'd been so mad when she wrote it and had fully intended to send it in its entirety, but the walk from Hufflepuff to the Owlery had calmed her down. By the time she had an owl actually down and ready to send it she'd been biting her lip in indecision. So she'd pulled out a muggle pen she kept on her and scratched it out and had ended the letter with what Ginny had just quoted. She definitely didn't want it thrown back in her face now and she'd never sent another like she'd originally planned.
But to hear Ginny mocking her about it now made Ellie snap and before she'd even registered what she'd done her hand lashed out and she slapped Ginny hard across the face. Of course at the feel of her hand striking skin her eyes widened impossibly and she dropped her hand to the side, taking a shaking step backward. "Oh Merlin. I can't- I don't believe. Oh Merlin."
