PostSubject: The Vase and me   Sat Mar 14, 2009 10:08 am

Bored! Bored! Bored! Bored! BORED!

The words continuously zipped about in Icarus’s head. At first, they were just screaming in there randomly, but then they took the form of a song.

Booooored. Bored. Bored. Bored. Boooooored. Bored. Bored. Bored. Boooo-ored.

It was almost like the bored ghost had taken over his brain and was trying to turn him mad. He was at the point of it too before he got an idea. Spying! Icarus liked to spy. But not in the creepy way. He liked to spy to get useful information, then use it against people. Oh, and by against, I mean blackmailing them into doing whatever he wanted them to do. Yes, to him, this was fun in its fullest. Ok, so maybe it WAS creepy and, to tell you the truth, he liked that. He’s an oddball indeed. But, hey, at least we can cross out the boredom:

boredom

With that, Icarus left the Slytherin common room to the wide world of Hogwarts. Catching sight of someone, he immediately slumped down behind a vase. Only he accidentally made contact with the vase and set it tumbling down. Acting quickly, Icarus threw himself to the ground in time to catch the vase before it cracked. Setting it straight, he let out a breath of relieved air as he wondered how old this vase could have been and how much it probably cost. Yup, his so called ‘family’ wouldn’t want to pay for it, that’s for sure.

It was only then that he remembered the person he was spying on. Or about to anyways.

Where the f*ck was the ruddy library?

Lucille's brain felt like mush. And not the yummy, baked potato kind of mush. Just plain, stupid mush. In her five-and-a-half years at Hogwarts, she had only ever gone to the library twice - once to complete a foot-long essay for Potions, and once to pull a random prank on Madam Pince. But both events were in her second year.

She had avoided the library at all costs since then. Seriously, the word 'library' just sounded like 'boring musty place with old books'. But now she had to go there and find a book to help her with Divination. Sigh.

She lingered for a moment in the hallway, trying to remember which floor the library was at, when she heard a strange sound - like something heavy rolling on the ground. She turned around to see a fellow Slytherin getting up from the floor and settling a vase on a pillar. Weird.

Lucille stared at him blankly, wondering how long he had been there, and what he was up to.

The girl was looking at him blankly.

Icarus searched for something to say. A plan. Then he got one. Didn’t take too long either considering how he’d done this before. This was still going to be a bundle of fun. The girl’s probably wondering what he was doing here and might have suspected spying. They all do. After all, what would you think when you see someone knock over a vase? Especially if he was hiding behind it a minute before.

Anyone know the answer? Anyone? What’s that you said? Nobody? That is RIIIIGHT! Or so Icarus thought.

Icarus give a toothy grin. “Bet you want to know what I’m doing,” he asked. He didn’t even care if he was wrong and didn’t let the girl answer. Instead, he continued talking. Hey, it was a rhetorical question after all. “You also probably want to know the truth. So, I’m going to tell the truth and say that I was spying.” He continued his grin, relaxed as he shrugged. “Sure I messed up. But, hey, it was bound to happen after the two hours of spying I did. Cool, right? Two hours of spying and you didn’t even catch me.”

He then laughed as though he was teasing her. His laugh didn’t take long, though. It didn’t need to.

"Two hours of spying and you didn’t even catch me."

The boy was acting like knocking over a vase was the most normal thing to do. And that spying wasn't creepy. Lucille's cheeks went slightly pink at his words. Was he saying the truth? Had he really been there for so long?

Wait. That wasn't possible because - "I just crossed this hallway now....Don't tell me you've been following me from the girls' lavatory?" Not that she had been there. She was at class. She raised a brow, smirking at him, but feeling amused. Of course he hadn't done that, but he was kind of cute, and funny...Psh. Whatever. This was better than crawling around in the library anyway.

The girl’s lavatory?

Ooops.

Icarus searched for something clever to say. Or at least something cleverer than defeat. He could say that he did follow the girl into the lavatory. But, hey, boy’s got some sense of pride. Though he doesn’t care much about his reputation, he doesn’t want to be known as “the creepy boy who follows girls into their lavatory” either. Though a bit funny for others, it’s too much for him. So, that’s out of the question:

Tell her he did.

But, hey, he could still eavesdrop, couldn’t he? Yeah, plus, that’s a form of spying. With that, he grinned and began talking in his calm and relaxed way. “No,” he admitted, “I eavesdropped. Then when I heard you coming out, I tiptoed out of the way. As easy as taking money away from the floor.” Yes, that was Icarus’s version of taking money away from a baby. Do you know how hard that is? Especially if the baby’s attached to it. It’ll cry your ears off.

Makes you wonder who comes up with these ridiculous sayings.

Was he serious?

Lucille stared at him, her expression blank again. What was he, a maniac? Well, in any case, he at least hadn't gone inside the lavatory. If he did, everyone would've realized...the girls would've screamed themselves to death. But he was clever, being able to strike up excuses like that. Lucille would give him the satisfaction of thinking she believed him.

Too bad she wasn't really in the lavatory. If he had taken a look at the sixth years' schedule, he'd know she had just left Divination - which brings us back to the fact that she has Divination homework, and needs to go to the library.

Lucille felt her lips form a small smile. This guy was funny as heck. "So what did you hear me say in the lavatory?" she asked in an amused tone, wondering what he'd say, then added: "And what year are you in? I don't think I've noticed you before...Come to think of it, I ignore a lot of people..." She shrugged.

What was this?

Some sort of an interview? Don’t get Icarus wrong. He doesn’t mind interviews. But, not when he’s squirming to come up with a decent lie yet to be asked another question again. He wondered whether or not this interview had an ending. He hoped it did. Or either he’ll be here for hours trying to convince a girl he was spying on her or she’ll find out he’s lying. Yippee! Frankly, Icarus had no idea which he liked the most. Sure, he hated admitting defeat. But, somehow, he didn’t think his little plan would work.

Plus, she appeared to be amused. amused ? amused ? amused ?

Gasp!

Icarus had no idea why. He wasn’t particularly liking it either. It wasn’t part of his plan. His plan was she thinking he’d heard something, then asking him to keep shut and then he blackmailing her. A perfect plan. This? Not so much. But, coming to think of it, his little ‘plan’ did seem like something only a gullible person would get sucked into. It was quite obvious that this girl wasn’t gullible what-so-ever.

In fact, she seemed smart. Especially after she’d asked him what he’d heard.

Once again, Icarus found himself searching for an answer. Then he realised that he didn’t have to. He could be mysterious and not give out a straight answer. With that thought, Icarus give a shrug. “Stuff,” he answered. Genius! Mwhahaha…he should have thought of answering mysteriously sooner.

When she asked him what year he was in, however, he decided to answer fully. After all, it wasn’t a lie. “Sixth.” Thinking that perhaps asking another question would change the subject, he quickly asked "you?" Plus, he was curious. He could swear he'd seen her around before. A lot before. Wait, was she a sixth year too?

So maybe he wasn't stupid after all. 'Stuff'. Decent answer - mysterious, short, yet didn't give him away just yet. He was playing jokes, trying to make her feel uncomfortable, but...Lucille knew that, and because she knew, she felt exactly the opposite. This might be fun.

She smiled - a strange thing for her to do, she so rarely did it - and cocked her head to one side, thinking for a moment. She wanted him to admit he lied. To give up. But he certainly didn't seem like that kind of person. If she was in his position, she wouldn't admit defeat, either.

Ha, they had something in common.

"Stuff, huh?" she said, biting her lip and trying hard not to look like she was going to laugh. This was the perfect time to reveal that she hadn't really been in the lavatory in the first place, just to take him off-guard. "Stuff like...I was in Divination class the time you were supposedly eavesdropping on me?"

Hee. Wonder how he'd take that. He looked cute when he was thinking hard. And...Oh. They were in the same year, and yet she didn't notice him before...odd... "I'm in the sixth, too," she answered when he asked her the same question. She furrowed her brows and tried to remember a time when she had seen him...maybe in the common room, or in a class, once or twice...Wait! Classes. They should be in the same classes. So why wasn't he in Divination? Didn't he take that class?

"Stuff like...I was in Divination class the time you were supposedly eavesdropping on me?"

WHAT?

Icarus blinked.

Oh….yippee!

It took Icarus a couple of seconds to realize and accept what this meant: he was tricked. He couldn’t believe it. Though he wasn’t about to admit defeat. Not now. Not ever. So, what would he do? He was thinking now when, suddenly, he remembered something. He never necessarily said that he was eavesdropping on her when she was in the lavatory. He’d just said he was eavesdropping.

A smile slowly curved onto Icky’s head.

“Exactly,” He answered, “I was eavesdropping on you in divination class. Have I ever said I was eavesdropping on you in the lavatory? Nope, I don’t recall. I admit, though, I lied a bit. I could only eavesdrop for a couple of minutes until I got caught. But, hey, it was only a class, right? Nothing too big. So, I decided to waste the rest of the time in the common room until you leave.” HA!

-Enter a happy dance here-

"But seeing as you seemed to think I meant the lavatory, it amused me enough to go with it."

Yup, Icky just never gives up. He just hoped this girl did. “A sixth year, huh? Knew it.”

Lucille couldn't help it: she laughed. It had been so long since she last did that. But this guy was so funny - he was talking like he just drank coffee and was now really hyper, shooting excuses at her like he was going to die if he didn't.

But he did make sense. He never said he eavesdropped on her in the lavatory, though he was obviously thinking it. Lucille wasn't going to give up. Never. So what would she say now? She had an excellent memory, it came useful many times, and she could use it now. There had to be a loophole in something he said before....

Bingo!

"You went to the common room and waited till I left?" she quoted him, keeping her smile, "But you said before that you 'tiptoed' away when you heard me leaving." As easy as taking money away from the floor, right? "Unless you left and waited in the common room, and then came back to the class when it was going to end, and then tiptoed away...." But no, that would be a stupid thing to do. Haha. And if he explained that he was also lying about that bit, he'd be stupid.

Harsh, but fair. This was becoming a game of words. And lies.
Lucille liked it.

"Oh, I never thought you meant the lavatory. I knew you were smart enough to realize it from the start." Hee. Sarcasm was nice in small, complimentary doses. "And I'm Lucille Perry, in case you didn't know me...suppose we should at least know each others' names before we get to seventh year."

She was laughing? Laughing ? Icarus didn’t like that too much. He was hoping annoyance. But, nope, he got laughter. He was about to say something when she talked instead.

Icarus smiled.

He was ready for this.

“As I see, you have a good memory. Well, then, you’ll probably remember this too: I said that I ‘admit I lied a bit’. That was the part I lied about.” He sighed, “I just didn’t want to admit getting caught. But, hey, looks like you got that out of me, huh?” He grinned, victorious yet again. This was actually quite fun, lying. Though he much rather blackmail and spying, this was still alright.

She’d used sarcasm, then, asking for his name and introducing herself as Lucille Perry. Sarcasm, huh? Icarus found himself on the merge of laughter. Sarcasm always did that to him. “Icarus Craft,” he answered with a smile.

“So, anything else you would like to question me about? Or have you finally got your proof? Admit it. I was spying and you never found out. You’re lucky that vase fell over, no?”

He never gives up, does he?

Lucille grinned and shook her head a little. That was exactly the answer she expected. He was skilled at being creepy, but at lying? Not so much. Still, he was making a pretty good effort. "I got what out of you? That you got caught? I realized that the moment you knocked the vase over," she said, "Brilliant way to keep yourself hidden, really."

She nodded when he introduced himself. "Icarus? What's your nickname - Icky?" She expected him to say 'no', but then again, he was full of surprises. Maybe his mum called him that. Or maybe everyone did. It was a suitable nickname for a funny stalker-slash-liar guy.

"Admit it. I was spying and you never found out."

Stubborn, wasn't he? "Oh, fine, you win!" she said, magicking out a tiny white flag in her hand and waving it around. He could walk away with the feeling of victory for all she cared. At least he made her laugh, something she doubted anyone else could have done. "But for the record, I still don't believe you spied on me." She smiled.

Icarus rolled his eyes.

“It was an accident. Happens to everyone and, for the record, I’ve spied on many people without getting caught before. Don’t care if you believe me either.” He shrugged, showing that he didn’t. A grin split his face as he added. “Plus, I bet I’m better at you by a long shot.” He believed it too. One hundred percent. Icarus was the kind who knew he was a pro-everything. To him, whatever he liked, he was good at. Plain and simple.

Then came an attempt at making fun of his name. Or so Icarus guessed, anyways. He smirked. “Sure,” he answered, “Icky Craft.” His smirk twisted into a laugh then. Icky Craft? It was almost like making fun of his last name which Icarus liked. He hated being a Craft. It was what messed up his whole life in the first place. Forcing his laughter to end, Icarus took a deep breath as he tried to stop thinking about his real parents. How he disliked them. Thinking of his parents was the only thing that could ever make him angry.

Then Lucille give up, leaving him smiling. “Good,” he said, ignoring her ‘for the record’ comment. “Now say ‘Icarus is the mighty spy’ to make it official.”

He grinned.

"Icky is the mightiest spy of them all," said Lucille, grinning. "You don't mind me calling you that, do you? It's not an insult, it's just...cute," she added and shrugged in an it's-no-big-deal way. She checked her wristwatch and calculated how much time she had left to research on crystal balls: 20 minutes till Arithmancy. She supposed she must get to the library now. The game was over, after all, with Icarus 'winning' and yadda yadda.

"I'll see you around, then," she said, waved her hand offhandedly, and walked away, feeling a bit happier than she had before.

((ooc: Sorry it's short, Pastel, I gotta go.. But really, you're a coolsauce RPer~ xD))

Icarus watched as Lucille walked off happily. And how many times had she smiled throughout this entire thing?

He sighed. His whole plan to ruin someone’s day obviously hadn’t worked. But, no biggie. What’s a little bump in the rode? He’ll just try on someone else until he’d at least had three people annoyed. Three people in a day’s good enough for him. He grinned thinking of what he’ll try next. There was always the whole “ruin someone’s belongings” thing. That was always fun. Yeah, plus, he had some time before his next class.

And didn't he won the game with Lucille? He grinned and, with that thought in his mind, walked off happily.

[Tis alright, mine’s short too. And thankies! You too…moi hat fun! =D]
