"Sweet Summer Child"
Rain was the life-bringer to all things on this planet. The very fact that it rained water on earth was a magic in and of itself. Without the rain nothing would be here. Terra would simply be a rock of magma and dust. And yet the rain fell and so there was grass and lakes and trees and animals and life. For this, Tori loved the rain.
She hummed as she worked in her plot of the greenhouse, carefully picking up her potted plants and moving them outside. She placed the ones she moved with care, setting them tight against the outer wall of the building so nobody would trip on them throughout the day. The early morning sun shone weakly through the clouds, giving the mist-covered grounds an ethereal gray shine. It didn't take her too long finish her work; most of her plants would not do well in the rain and some were too heavy to bother moving. Yet by the time she was finished, the knees of her jeans were soaked through with muddy water and wet grass clung to her hands.
She double-checked her plants once, then twice, then with a final nod to herself strode away from the greenhouse. She made it about five yards before turning around and hurrying back to grab the umbrella left forgotten leaning against the wall just inside the door to the building. She made her way back to the castle slowly, the umbrella swinging lightly around her wrist (it wasn't raining hard enough for the badger to feel the need to use it at the moment). Her meandering way through back to the castle led her through the courtyard where she spotted the shimmering and unmistakable ghost of a seventh year slytherin.
"Hello, Kiedis." She greeted him, a small smile on her lips as she stopped next to where he stood. Floated? It was difficult to say with ghosts. She had known him before, though he was a separate year and a separate house. Her friendship with Elias often brought her to the slytherin common room where she would occasionally see the angry teenager. He wasn't exactly the most pleasant to talk to, but something of him reminded her of her father and her brother. But mostly, when she was being completely honest with herself (which was as rare as a unicorn letting a male touch it), the snake reminded her of herself. So she had often made an effort to talk to him, a small voice in her head naively and pridefully telling that she should take any chance to try and help him, whether he accepted it or not. "The grounds look very nice today, don't they?" Yes, small talk. Because it was hard enough to get him to say anything civil in the first place. She had long since learned that.

""What am I?" - Sion"
Cause Kiedis, he's vulgar. Also parental abuse.
There were many times that Kiedis encountered the natural shower that is rain. The snake did not appreciate it. It reminded him of times when he had to stay outside in the cold at night when the sky wept as a punishment from his parents. Nights when the young boy had to take shelter under the porch. Wood damp and ground muddy. Nothing but a shirt and shorts that were old and worn, using a garbage bag as a blanket. It was not a way should a nine-year-old be treated. That was over now. Kiedis had a shelter from the awful memories. Seven years in Hogwarts had saved him. The Slytherin boy abandoned his home back in London. If one can even call that house with his parents in it, a home. He was free, but somehow the memories still had this tight grasp on him. It was as if the dark past he had given him a shackle that was the perfect length. Clasped at the bottom of a deep ocean and his ankles, chin deep in water, no land in sight, and he had to swim up else he drowns entirely.
Death was also a lie. Apparently. Kiedis was still on earth. A ghost is also a form of life in a way, right?
It was rare for Kiedis to walk around the grounds and outside, but he had to today. He wanted to walk around as he normally did. Take his mind off things. It was his way of passing the time. The courtyard was vast, and at this time there was usually minimal accounts of students populating it. One of those accounts, however, was a girl that Kiedis fails to remember.
"Am I supposed to fuckin' know you?"
His words were brash and cold. The snake's face mirrored his speech in the way his brows contorted downward and towards his nose bridge, the way his eyes that glistened in the sun whenever he was spaced out were now devoid of light, and the way his jaw prodded out at the sides because of how his teeth were pressed forcefully together.
Yes. The grounds were beautiful to the departed boy. The lush grass and how quiet it was in this kind of weather was soothing. Kiedis was one to walk along the grounds whenever there was no one around more than he enjoyed staring at it from a window as he stared into the distance for hours on end. He chose to lie to this girl.
"You need to get your eyes checked. The grounds look gloomy as fuck in this weather."
