Alice ran down to the lake as fast as her feet could carry her. When she was upset, it was her favorite place to go. Right now, she was totally bummed out that she still hadn't been asked to the Fools Day Ball.
She started skipping rocks. It was one of her many hobbies.

Caleb was sitting by the lake, on his own. The black lake was a glorious place, and Caleb came here often to contemplate things. He used this quiet time to reflect on his family life, and his letters. Chester, one of his owls, sat and nipped at his hand, expecting a reward for his strenuous journey. Caleb was reaching in to his bag when a girl, with a sad look upon her face, came hurtling by to sit in the same place he was, and by the look on her face, the same way he was too.

"Hello! I'm Alice, Alice Crawford. And you are?" she said as she stuck out her hand and tried to muster a smile.

"Well, hello there, Miss Crawford."
Caleb said, deciding he should turn on the charm. Alice looked like she could use a bit of loveliness, or something.
He took her hand and kissed it, the way a gentleman should, before drawing himself up to full height.
"My name is Caleb Hathaway, and I must say, it's a pleasure to meet you."
Chester was long since forgotten, and was now foraging through Caleb's bag.

Alice turned a soft shade of pink.
"It's nice to meet you too,Caleb,"she said. "Is something wrong? You look kind of pale."

ooc: Sorry for my short posts. I feel braindead today.

Caleb smiled. Alice had turned pink, and this, to him, was a good sign.
"My dear lady, you looked awful crestfallen. What is troubling such a fine girl like yourself?"
Casanova business? Piece of cake to Caleb.

[ooc: don't worry about it, I sometimes make really short posts too xD]

"Oh, nothing really,"Alice said softly. "I'm just experiencing homesickness."
Alice knew this was a lie because this was her 5th year at Hogwarts, but she hoped Caleb wouldn't ask her anything else. And besides, she really did get homesickness once in a while.

Homesickness. The one thing Caleb would never experience.
"Oh, is that so? Well, I wouldn't worry too much. Just write a letter and tell them you miss them."
He said, looking at Alice. She was quite pretty.
In a rush to change the subject, Caleb said "So... who's your date to the Fool's Ball?"

Alice was hoping he wouldn't ask her that question. With a heavy heart, she replied,"I don't have a date, no one's asked me yet."

Wow. That was hard to believe.
"Get out. No-one's asked you? Seriously?"
Caleb fumbled arpund in his bag for a bottle of butterbeer or two to share with Alice, and was promptly bitten by Chester.
"Argh. You bloody nuisance."
Caleb fed Chester, who cleared off after his treat.

Cassie sauntered up, most likely breaking off an awkward conversation. "You should ask someone, not wait for them to ask you. Geez, there's no rule the guy has to ask."

Alice giggled. That was exactly why she got a cat and not an owl. And yes, it was really true that no one had asked her. Many of the girls in Hufflepuff house had teased her about it. That's why she was down at the lake in the first place.
Alice felt somewhat hurt by Cassie's words. Everyone knew she was too shy to ask anyone herself.

Caleb looked at this cocky new girl. He instantly disliked her.
"Excuse me, it's rude to barge in on a conversation."
"Alice, would you prehaps like to go for a walk with me?" He said, turning back to Alice.

She chuckled, not bothered in the least. "Watch out for the giant squid," she advised. "He might throw you in."

Then she ran without bothering to watch Caleb's face.

"Umm.. Sure I guess,"Alice said. She too was shocked by Cassie's rudeness.

Caleb smirked. The cocky one left, and with fleeting, bad remark. The Giant Squid could kiss his behind, for all he cared.

"Hey, Alice... would you like to go to the ball with me, perhaps?"

He said, surprised at the anxious feeling bubbling in the pit of his stomach.

Alice picked up her bag which she had left among the rocks and then ran back to where Caleb was standing.

The anxious feeling was growing larger. 'Had Alice heard him?' He wondered.

"What was that?" Alice inquired. She had gone to get her bag and didn't hear what he said.

"I said... maybe we could go the ball. Together."

Then, he started practically drinking in the air. Who knew asking a girl out could be this hard?

Alice smiled,"I'd love to."
Alice was literally bursting with joy at this point. Now she had nothing on her mind, and the teasing would stop.

Nothing could stop the grin Caleb felt spreading across his mouth.

"Excellent. This should be fun right? Oh by this way, this makes you my girlfriend, okay?"

He added, with a flirty wink.

This time Alice turned a shade of red. "It's getting late, we should head back to the dorms soon," she said hastily.

Did he go a step too far saying that? He didn't wanna care her off, or anything.

He coughed nervously.

"Err, sorry. I just get a little over excited."

His hand reached to the back of his neck, and he rubbed it anxiously.

"Sorry if I made you nervous."

"No, it's ok," she replied. She smiled as she gazed into his deep blue eyes. They reminded her of the pool in her backyard. She used to love to playing there with her brothers Daniel and Jason, but they had been sent to Durmstrang.

ooc: I have to go shopping with my mom right now, so I'll answer any posts when I get back. Bye!
