the shiteth hath hiteth the faneth
Who: Melinda Bobbin and Pansy Parkinson.
When: After dinner on Thursday evening.
Where: 7th Year Girls Dorm.
What: Tattling, gossip, whatever you want to call it.
Rating: Um. Tba? I don't imagine Pansy's reaction will be pretty.
Open/Closed: Closed. Pansy has made sure they'll be alone, apparently.
|Melinda had agonized over whether to share what she was about to with Pansy, not because she cared about the feelings of others or what the repercussions were sure to be, but because she wasn't quite sure how the information might be otherwise useful to her. Perhaps holding onto it might have been wiser. It could prove an excellent bargaining chip at some point. To be frank, though, there was really nothing either Draco or Astoria had that Melinda couldn't achieve for herself, nothing she could see at any rate, and Pansy was a dear friend. The pros to feeding her this juicy bit of gossip (and watching the world implode around them, of course) far outweighed the cons in her book.|
Of course, she didn't just come out with it, either. After all, she hadn't socialized much since holidays and she wasn't ever one to just blurt things out. There were niceties to be observed, first. She smiled as she entered the older girl's dorm, pleased it was empty, though she didn't imagine their chat would be a secret for very long once it was all said and done. Or it might be. Honestly, it did prove a little embarrassing for Pansy that Draco has been in the company of another, didn't it?
Oh, well. That wasn't something Melinda was worried about, really.
"How have you been? Your family is well, I trust?" she inquired politely as she sat on one of the beds, taking care with her posture as always, though the curiosity in her tone was genuine - Pansy was one of the few people she didn't genuinely enjoy spending her time with and the question, while polite, was mostly sincere.
