Warning: Swearing and cameo by Keidis Ellis if you're iffy about swearing then don't read, the summary is Kiedis basically gets very emotional and ends up breaking all the non-fixated items outside the room of requirement including the glass windows.

"GOD FUCKING DAMNIT!" Kiedis roared out in utter disappointment. His anger was due to his lack of ghostly prowess as most ghosts have been able to turn on taps and lift things, the benevolent spirit of this pissed off teenager could not. He hated being a ghost, at his seventh year he would have graduated and ended up living on his own. How fucking great would it be to actually live for once in his godforsaken joke of a life? But no, he had to fucking save a stupid eleven-year-old who was ignorant enough to walk towards the mother fucking Whomping Willow.

It wasn't really an easy transition having all your senses except for hearing and seeing stripped away from you. What would he give to be able to taste something even when he wasn't hungry or to be able to punch someone in the face if he was angry enough which was usually the case. To the newly baptized ghost, being one was torture. The first two days Kiedis spent as one was a struggle. He did not know how to float thus he still had his legs on the ground and pretended to walk and that had stuck to him as if he was still acting like a human. Another problem was how he can occupy his time. He did not need to sleep and it irritated him when he was conscious all the time. This led to boredom and uneasines in his part he was just happy he can just turn off his mind for hours to look out at various windows across the castle at nights up until the sun started to peek in. The baby ghost can sleep really and it was a mind over matter thing but he was at a loss. But among the new things that the dead boy wanted to learn was how to make objects move because he as hell couldn't.

Did he really have to stay that way forever? Didn't dying have a road map that said left for eternal ectoplasmic life and right for wiped out from existence?

No matter how pissed he was there were no u-turns or save files on this and he wasn't the type who would take it calmly either. Right now he was a cold mist that made everyone feel like they walked into a meat freezer with freshly killed cattle in it, unpleasant and very cold.

Kiedis jabbed at the air as he hoped he could hit something, anything! He wanted to break something. He just wanted a release from all the anger he'd been keeping inside. With every strike of his fists through each and every glass and every hanging lantern was him just going through them. The only thing that his cold and dreary body was able to put out was lantern fires as he passed his fists right through them.

But only when he had come to the double corridors of the hall just where the room of requirement sat that he tried repeatedly to break the glass windows using his see-through fist. He took a stab at punching but every time he did was a failure. The departed's clenched fist would just go through. Only after a few minutes of total anxiety and frustration of constantly 'missing' the mark in front of him was when the dead boy roared loudly in anger.

"FUCKING BREAK ALREADY YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT!"

With that shout of emotional focus on breaking every single glass along the corridors, they finally gave in and broke with the boy's ghostly force. He breathed in and out deeply as if he was a bull looking at a red target ready and angry. Even when he didn't really need to. He then laughed maniacally at what he had done. It was a horrible and eerily scary laugh. As if he might actually kill a person if he saw them. He could finally try and break something or someone as practice.

Elias had been thinking back about his previous encounter with the Hufflepuff girl. He wondered if her wounds had healed. With the right care and treatment, he supposed she would be okay in time. She was also shown to have a vast amount of knowledge on medical treatments. Even without going to the infirmary, she would be better off than most students. Then again, the girl's wand had broke. Elias pushed these thoughts aside. Why think about her now, when he would never talk to her again? He continued down the staircase until he entered a darker corridor. He liked this route because it was the road least traveled. Hardly any students used this path.

Then came the ghost. Elias was used to their presence in the castle, like every other student. However, the ghosts tended to leave the fourth-year alone and in return, he left them alone in their misery. That was the general contract. This ghost, however, was clearly not having a good day. He was being loud and shouting at something, as if his words alone would be able to break it. Elias almost felt pity for the ghost except for the fact that the boy hated loud things and this ghost was certainly loud. He grimaced, almost certain that if he had to walk past the ghost, he would become the ghost's next target to vent his frustrations on.

The living did not pity the dead. Elias was well-versed in the literature of the wizarding world, and he remembered reading a line like that somewhere before. He sometimes wondered if it was a curse, that when a wizard died, there was the choice to remain among the living. The Slytherin boy wasn't sure what had driven so many wizards and witches to stay. Perhaps it was the fear of not knowing what was in the afterlife. Or perhaps there was some lingering attachment to a loved one or a mortal enemy. There were too many reasons and Elias couldn't care enough to list all of the ones he could think of. After all, there was an issue that was much more pressing at hand. Elias had been minding his own business before he encountered the ghost. He had just finished up at the library. Two essays were done, which he counted as his accomplishments for today. He had packed his bag and headed to the Great Hall to eat a quick dinner before he planned to wash up before going to bed.

The Slytherin boy wasn't an inanimate object, so he'd highly prefer not to be yelled at by some random ghost he never did any harm. Tightening his hold on his book bag, he wondered if it would be a wise idea to just sprint out of the hallway. It was a dubious move, considering it was possible that the ghost might give chase. If the ghost was as irritated as he sounded, the chances were high that he would follow Elias. That would not be a pleasant experience. Elias sighed. What was he to do then? Stand here awkwardly while he waited for the ghost to calm down, which may or may not happen anytime soon, and then leave the corridor. Elias rubbed his forehead as he heard the ghost shout out another expletive. No, if he stayed any longer he'd get a migraine and he hated those too.

There had to be another solution that he wasn't considering. He didn't blame himself for not thinking of one immediately, considering there was an angry ghost nearby that was going absolutely bonkers. Taking a cursory gaze, the boy studied his surroundings. Now that he was using his mind for something useful, he noticed that he was really close to the Room of Requirement. It wasn't a place that he generally tried to visit. The library was really all that the boy needed, and he wasn't sure exactly what would show up in the room if he ever tried to enter it. Nonetheless, it was a good hiding place while the ghost in question wrecked havoc. Quietly, the boy walked quickly in the direction of the entrance to the Room of Requirement. Without hesitation, he turned the doorknob and entered the room hoping that whatever was inside wouldn't be worse than the ghost outside.

After all, sometimes, the living could be scarier than the dead.

A loud crash as the glass windows broke along the halls as Aki had been walking with her book bag. By habit, she grasped at her hip to procure her wand but it wasn't there. The witch had forgotten that her wand had been broken. Luckily, she was not hurt by the glass that had shattered. Investigating on what had created the damages to the castle, her eyes located a ghost. This ghost was familiar but how can it be?

"O-oh my, K-kiedis El-lis..." she said in her whisper of a voice. The young badger stepped back at the memories she had with the formerly breathing Slytherin student.

The time when the see-through and intangible boy was opaque and with a physical body. The badger had spent five years encountering students who had been beaten up by the boy badly. Bloodied faces and crying sobs of innocent students that happened to pass by the Slytherin in one of his moods. She remembered completely well of the time she had encountered Kiedis. It was in her third year as the ghost was in his fifth. A second year Ravenclaw had tripped over a tree root as he was walking to the other side of the courtyard to get to his next class. The studious boy had a stack of books from the library he had wanted to read over the weekend. Tripping over and on his face, the young eagle met with a bleeding nose. Aki rushed to the boy's aid only to be shoved over by an angry fifth year Slytherin, Kiedis Ellis. He had apparently been hit by one of the books as he was enjoying an afternoon nap. Kiedis had started beating the boy senseless while Aki had repeatedly tried to stop the boy only to get bruises of her own due to the older Slytherin knocking her back with a forceful rage.

It was a memory that shook the young Hufflepuff. Bullying was still rampant in Hogwarts but even so, she felt awful that Kiedis had died. She didn't even catch news of it and there he was the Slytherin bully was dead and floating? If walking with his feet on the floor as if he was still alive. Aki was scared, Kiedis was angry and she had nowhere o go but behind her which she thought was a bad idea as the ghost would definitely be faster than her. What can Aki do to get away? She took another step back only to step on a shard of glass that made a loud sound. Even with the windows opened, the sound still echoed through the hall.

"Oh no." She had managed to say before looking for a way out of the ghost's reach. Even if she was worried that Kiedis may have felt so much pain and grief before dying. It sent shivers down her spine just imagining it.

Maybe it was her desperate need to get away that the wall beside her slowly turned into a door. The room of requirement. She breathed easy as she was not seen by the ghost yet but he surely was looking for where the noise had come from. The lamb-like girl opened the door and walked through, happy as she did. Hopefully, Kiedis wouldn't have seen her as she hid from him. Kiedis was scary before but he was a lot scarier now.

"Please, go away..." she said gently as the door behind her vanished. The room of requirement was just right on time.

Elias found himself in a room with four plain white walls. There weren't any windows; there wasn't any door, which he would have found problematic if it weren't for the fact that there was a noisy ghost outside giving him a terrible headache. But for now, the boy was content with the mostly silent room. He suspected that the walls were sound-proof because once he was inside the room, he was no longer able to hear the cries of the ghost. His own breathing stilled until he could no longer hear his own breath.

That was a lie.

When the room was this quiet, he was able to hear many sounds, including the sound of his beating heart. He closed his eyes as he leaned against the wall of the room. Despite the stillness and solitude of the room, he didn't feel at peace. Maybe it was because he knew that the moment he left, the ghost would be outside waiting for him. While he might have been able to use a spell to discourage the ghost from following him, ghosts that angry were known to be vindictive. He did not want any possible side-effects from occurring, like having the ghost go after him in a fit of fury for days on end. That would be worse than having to deal with it for only one night.

He was trying to get some sleep, but he found that he could not sleep. Never had the beating of his own heart been louder than before. He opened his eyes while still in a groggy state, wondering if the ghost had perhaps decided to leave when a door appeared. Elias froze for a moment, afraid that the ghost had somehow managed to get into the Room of Requirement. Without any windows or doors, the boy would be stuck with an angry ghost. He felt a chill down his spine, but immediately felt relief when he saw that it was a student that had entered. It was only for a few seconds that he felt relief before he realized who the student in question was. Without even blinking an eye, he guessed that luck again was not on his side. When was it ever? Of all the people that could have chosen to go into the Room of Requirement the same time as him, it had to be the girl he scorned for having a lesser than pure blood. He didn't know what to say to her. After he carried her from the library to her common room, he simply left and let things sit. The wizard certainly hadn't expected to see the girl again so soon, not after what had transpired in the library between them.

With that, the boy looked up from his sitting spot and studied her expression with a cold gaze. “It looks like you might have had the misfortune of running into the same ghost as me.” It was his way of acknowledging her presence, even if he refused to look at her directly in the eyes. His hair was disheveled, like he had ran a hand through it multiple times in his effort to soothe the headache that was slowly forming and growing more malicious. “Maybe it's best we just stay here quietly until he calms down.”

The sound of a voice as she stumbled down onto the white ground made Aki feel a bit at ease as she fell down onto the floor. She had her eyes closed as she walked in and didn't realize that the Room of Requirement would have someone in it. The Hufflepuff girl was happy that Kiedis hadn't gotten a student when he had shattered the windows the way he did.

Aki did recognize the voice that had emerged from the room in the second the male voice spoke. It was definitely the Slytherin boy back in the library. She never really did get the boy's name and she hadn't apologized and thanked the boy for what he had done for her back then.

Trying to stand up as she saw the white floor which she thought was weird since she always thought that the Room of Requirement would be the same stone floors and alcoves. But this was far from it, did Elias make this room? The lamb-like girl felt a certain uneasiness she had this before back when her aunt Hanabi was needed for a small study lecture at a university. Aki had wandered into a white room which was used for teaching purposes in a school, the door had closed behind her and she couldn't find where the opening was. A small child trapped in a clean white room for an hour would be alarming but she was trapped for at least two.

In her corner, the room changed. From the corner's wall emerged a green patch of pasture, a fully bloomed cherry blossom tree with its pink petals falling onto the ground around her. She was singing as the room created a small safe haven for her. She was scared both inside the room and outside. Another chance that Aki had been in complete distress in front of the boy. She was on her knees as she had her eyes closed as tears formed from the gaps and falling onto the base of the tree.

She then started to sing in her gentle voice a song a very close friend of hers had sung to her whenever she was scared or when she felt homesick.

"Once there was a way,
To get back homeward.
Once there was a way
To get back home.
Sleep, pretty darling,
Dot not cry
And I will sing a lullaby."

For whatever reason, she was crying again. It seemed inevitable to have tears spilled across her cheeks every time the two met. Was he that horrible of a person that she felt it was scary enough to tear up at the sight of him? He kept a neutral expression, no longer looking as angry as he did on the day of their first meeting. No, the boy was just tired at this point. He wanted everything to be over, so he did not have time to be angry at a girl who never meant him any harm.

“Don't cry.” The words were out of his mouth before he could stop them. If she listened carefully, she might have noticed that his words did not contain his usual curtness. The words came out as a whisper, a sign that the boy had no intend to say anything else to the girl. He looked slightly surprised, but he looked away. It couldn't have been helped when he had been caught off-guard. It seemed to have lowered his guard as well. Once the Hufflepuff made her entrance, he noticed that the room was gradually changing, morphing so that her wishes would be incorporated into the room. There was more color now. Vivid pinks and rich green colored her portion of the room. Was that her own way of calming herself? He wondered if he was scary enough that she'd cry upon seeing him or if it was something altogether. It was impossible to know, considering he barely knew her enough. He supposed her reaction was fair, considering his earlier treatment of her. Not sure if the girl felt safe with him being so close, he made no move to move closer to her. It wasn't as if he wanted to touch a filthy mudblood anyhow.

“I'll just pretend you aren't here,” said Elias, hoping that his words would make her feel better. He doubted it because it would be hard to pretend that someone who hated her for being who was she was didn't exist when he was right in front of her.

Then he heard her song. It was a gentle and soothing melody that blocked out all the other sounds. The world grew faint as the boy's eyes fluttered shut.

Elias had fallen asleep, his back still leaning against the wall.

The girl could faintly hear the Slytherin boy's words as she cowered in her little corner but she couldn't reply. Her fear and timidity overcame her. She felt fear scream at her despite the gentle caress of comfort that the boy's words offered.

It took the small badger at least half an hour to calm down and find that the room converted her side into a green and pink paradise due to the cherry blossom tree where she was sat upon. The room didn't quite seem all that horrible anymore as the small petals that had fallen from the tree had scattered many directions and onto the white floor that the rest of the room created. She took a deep breath as she wiped away her tears. Crying had been habitual to the young girl recently. There had been multiple times that she had been in a situation that led her to tears more than once. The badger was sure that maybe something good will happen soon but now, she wasn't as sure.

Aki stood up from where she sat and noticed the boy from before asleep in the corner of the room. The Hufflepuff out of instinct to help walked briskly towards the Slytherin boy. Upon inspecting he was just asleep. She sighed and smiled as she was relieved that the boy was alright.

Taking another look around here there weren't any doors available yet. The girl sat on the floor beside the boy and thought deeply for the door to appear at that instant if the ghost, Kiedis had left. Minutes pass but no sign of a door. She figured that maybe the angry ghost was still there. Hugging her legs she patiently waited. Hoping that maybe they wouldn't need to wait too long as dinner would be done in a few hours and she had doubted that the boy beside her had eaten yet. Because she was also on her way to the great hall when the encounter became something of an urgent flee for safety.

Aki's eyes wandered to the sleeping figure and gently brushed away the flower petals that had settled onto the boy's face and hair. She was just happy that she didn't have to be alone in this room. She hummed her lullaby softly as she waited. There wasn't anything much to do.

He dreamed of death. There was the sound of an arrow flying through the air. Elias was running as fast as his legs could manage. The forest surrounded him, overwhelming him in absolute darkness. His eyes could not see anything but the bushes and trees. He kept running, but no matter how much he tried, he could not find the exit. His heart pondered loudly in his chest. He was almost sure he'd die of a heart attack at any moment. Where was he? Another arrow flew past him, this time grazing his cheek. When he moved his hand to touch that cheek, he found fresh blood. Who was going after him? He dodged another arrow. The arrows were coming at shorter interval. Pretty soon, the boy was dodging two arrows at a time, then three. He was running out of breath and space. The forest seemed to be growing smaller. It felt as if the trees were alive themselves and closing in on him. Eventually, there was a loud crash. He wondered if it was lighting. When he looked up, the sky was raining blood. There was the sound of a sword stabbing flesh. He stared in shock as he realized that the sword had went through his chest.

Then he woke up.

The shock was so sudden that he hugged the nearest object he could find out out of reflex. Unfortunately for Aki, who was sitting right next to him, she was the one he chose to embrace. If she listened carefully, she would be able to hear his ragged breath. The boy was shivering slightly. He was still in shock that someone had just murdered him in a nightmare. If the wizard wasn't so stunned right now, he would have laughed at his pitiful state. He wasn't even safe in his dreams.

“....Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you like that,” said Elias, quickly withdrawing from the embrace. He looked apologetic. “It looks like I managed to fall asleep. Is the ghost still outside?”

The smell of death lingered even after he awoke. He was keenly aware of how rigid his neck and back felt. That made sense, considering how he fell asleep in an uncomfortable position. A bead of sweat slid down his neck. He wiped it away with the back of his hand. As he pulled his hand closer to his sight, he realized that his hands were still shivering. The dream had been too vivid for his liking.

The calm that filled the room as the young girl only heard the sound of her voice and in between was the sound of the boy's breathing as he slept. The surreal feeling of calmnes after the bursts of emotion from the week before. The Hufflepuff had went through rejection from her first love, another was how she had broken and injured her arm on the same day she had met with the Slytherin beside her. It was an adventurous turn of events from her usual life in the background like a stage hand who waas always there to help behind a curtain of a theatre show. There but never noticed. This calmness was like the beginning of another scene wherein the stagehands may rest and let the leads take their place and do their roles.

This pleasant silence did not last long, however, as the snake beside the badger began to turn in his sleep the girl became concerned. A bad dream? Nightmare? She did not want to seem like a thorn on the boy's side as she had before back in the library. It was a first meeting that wasn't very friendly as the wizard had to help the witch after her wand had been broken. She hoped to make it up to the boy. Looking down at the boy beside her she leaned closer only to find herself in a tight and shaky embrace. This left the gentle badger both shocked and confused not knowing what to do.

With flower petals still carried by the room's will she wasn't sure if the room had created this scene for her as she was still in a heartbroken state from the day of the first quidditch match.

As the familiar snake stripped away from his embrace on the meek badger and after hearing his apology she understood and nodded. "N-no." she answered with gentle concern. "It's alright. Are you okay?"

Darting her eyes as the boy asked if Kiedis was still outside the girl found no doors, assuming that the rampaging ghost was still outside. "I think he's still outside."

Aki was still very worried about the boy, his shaking hands had caught her eyes the moment they were in view after the embrace. She slowly held the Slytherin's hands to steady them. "You can squeeze as tightly as you want if it would help relieve your tension..." she offered as she shifted to sit closer to the boy.

The Hufflepuff's voice was gentle, much too polite for someone who was a filthy Mudblood. But when she bled, didn't her blood look as red as everybody else's? The color of her blood was the same as his spilled blood. He wasn't blind to the facts of the world. She was a Muggleborn and was probably oblivious to some of the older wizarding traditions that had been passed down from family to family. She probably did not even understand the insults hurled at her way when she wasn't looking, much less understand the importance of blood purity. She was someone who had just entered the magical world and already, people were wanting her to go away. It felt unfair, but when was life ever fair?

“No, I'm fine. I'm sorry you had to see my outburst,” said Elias, already regaining his usual demeanor. From a young age, he had been taught to maintain a calm composure and good posture throughout any situation he might have encountered. Despite his overflowing emotions, his expression was calm. There was almost no sign of the frightened boy from a few moments ago. Sometimes, his ability to hide his emotions scared even himself. While it was true he had not expected to see Aki so soon again, it was as if fate decided to have the two meet again. It was useless to fight again destiny and truth be told, it was the girl's misfortune to have to encounter Elias again so soon. The silence felt unbearably loud now that there was an extra person in the room. He needed something to get his mind off the bloody images in his head. From Aki's response, it looked like the ghost was still outside. What was he so angry about that he was still breaking things? Elias rubbed his forehead gingerly before looking at Aki with slightly tired eyes. The nap did little to help him get actual rest. He needed to be back in his own bed.

“I noticed that when you entered the room, Sakura blossoms appeared. Do they bring you comfort?” asked Elias. It was a safe question and did not involve talking about anything that could be deemed as too personal. He reached out a hand to catch a falling blossom, cradling the blossom in the palm of his hand. “This is the first time I've seen them up close. They look beautiful.”

"It's really alright..." The girl answered, "I understand and I don't mind it. I'm just happy you're calmer now. I was rather worried."

Aki gave a small smile as she usually did. She was relieved that the boy was alright. The change in his posture and demeanor was enough to convince her. The badger was not hard to please nor was she especially doubtful of anyone. To her everyone was innocent until proven otherwise and even with proof the girl would still think that that everyone had good in them. With how the Slytherin boy had acted on their first meeting it was harder for her to think that this snake beside her would bite. The boy freeing a hand from hers did not other her, however, she was intrigued that the boy would catch one of the cherry blossom petals and lay it on his palm. It was the side of him she had seen from back at the library. It was calm and comoposed. Even when it confused the girl at times when the Slytherin said things in contempt the last time they met she was sure that this boy was honest.

His question about the blossoms in turn made her comfortable. A question that adde her forget the stark white room and the ghost that was rampaging around the wallls outside. And at that moment she just let go.

"They remind me of. My family... my aunts... my mother...." Aki started her response. The cherry blossoms were there during her times when she visited her home country with her mother and afterwards her aunts that took her place. She loved her mother, even with the smallest bits of memory she had of her. How her mother was always so carefree and happy. How she was hopeful even after her passing. She spent years before her death waiting for Aki's father to come back. Life was cruel to her and her mother but it never did faze the both of them. They had patience and they had hope. "Almost twenty years ago my mother met my father underneath a cherry blossom tree. She fell in love and four years later i was born but my mother had to part ways with him."

She paused and caught a petal of her own on her free palm. The white room slowly turning into a garden full of cherry blossom trees and green pasture.

"My father promised too come back. But my mother died due to malaria when I was just a very small girl so I now live with my aunts. We still spend springs watching the cherry blossoms bloom and fall. Because my father promised to come back in time to watch the blossoms with her. I still hope to meet my father."

Aki looked back at the boy and with her other hand still holding his hand, she gripped at it a little as she reminisced about her mother's dream. The timid girl realized she was still holding the boy's hand and she turned a vibrant shade of red. It flushed her cheeks and was apparent with her pale complexion before slowly letting go of the snake's hand and retreated to holding her own.

"They remind me of all kinds of love."

Elias smiled politely at the Hufflepuff. Once he regained his senses, he also regained the mask he wore that kept outsiders oblivious to his internal turmoil. “There's no need to worry about me, but thank you for your concern.” He was once again pushing people away, a natural habit the boy had formed over the years.

The snake smiled softly, but the look in his eyes were cold. He did not know how to smile even if he wanted. “Your parents were in love too? You're Muggleborn, so maybe that is why it happened to easily. True love...is uncommon in the wizarding world,” said Elias, alluding the arranged marriages that happened far too often. His next set of words were said in almost a whisper. “It was different with my parents. They also fell deeply in love.” The rate at which the Sakura blossoms fell seemed to slow down, almost to match the melancholic expression in Elias' brown eyes. His parents were two people who were never meant to have fallen in love; it had been entirely coincidental that Jeremy met Alexis, but the result had been powerful enough to defy the traditions of the Deveaux family. Elias did not have the luxury of meeting his mother, who passed away the day he was born. So when he heard about Aki's deceased mother, his usual unrelenting stare softened. His brow relaxed and he looked substantially more...normal, almost as if he was merely a teenage boy and not Elias Deveaux “Do you remember what your mother was like?”

“Why did your parents part ways?” He paused, realizing he might have asked a question that was too personal. “I'm sorry. I didn't mean to pry into your private life. Please excuse my abrupt question.” Elias wasn't sure what he was doing by being so nice to a Mudblood. She was just filth on the bottom of his shoe, but his death in the nightmare had mellowed him out considerably. To sleep, perchance to Dream. Death was unwanted, but it was inevitable. He did not understand why anyone would stay behind. Why did Kiedis choose to remain behind when he could have found peace? Maybe it was just something the boy would never be able to understand because he wasn't human enough.

“I only know familial love and filial piety,” said Elias, eyes once again cold and reflecting the calm that so defined Elias Deveaux. He was not staring at Aki, but at the blossoming trees. Soon, everything on the trees would wither and die, just like his father's heart had when his mother died. “Everything eventually comes to an end.” Those words were cryptic, and he did not bother to elaborate on what he meant. The notion of romantic love did not exist for Elias. Never would he make the same mistake as Jeremy Deveaux and become so attached to someone that her departure would create a void so vast that he'd never be able to fill it up, even if it meant being alone for the rest of his life.

Aki shook her had as the boy asked his questions. "No, not really..." she replied thoughtfully. "I isn't really any trouble. My mother was very much in love but I haaven't really met my father."

Her flushed face slowly cooled and gradually started to come back to its natural pale. It wasn't that the questions were too personal. More like they were neglected overtime that she hadn't really talked to anyone about her mother. Hazuki Sei. Hazuki was a loyal shrine priestess, the herald for fox deities. She was a beautiful young woman who fell ini love with a foreigner who was always so fascinated by the wonder and power of the shrines. One who had been Hazuki's first love and the reason why Aki's mother steppped down from her duty and in turn banished from her home for being tainted. That person left after a promise which hadn't been fulfillled.

"I know very little of my mother. And what little of it was her kindness and patience in everything." she continued to answer. "And my aunts often tell me that I look very much like her... and that I also have the same personality... so she never really left. She lived on in me." The girl hel back her tears as a prickling pain settled at the bridge of her nose. The girl breeathed in deeply and smiled back at Elias.

The snake spoke and the badger listened intently. He spoke of truths. Aki knew them all too well.

"But beginnings come right after endings."

Aki turned too look against the cherry blossom shower and her hair moving with the wind as if it was dancing in it. Much like the times when she visited her counntry to enjoy them with her family. How the sweet scent of the fllowers would fill the gardens as they ate under them.

"Family will always be there, the only time when family ends is if you don't continue. I may not know much about how magical families work but I believe that family works just the same. It ends and starts the same, what's different is how and what happens in between."

The movements she took was graceful much like her mother was. Taking after her, the only thing she had thought she inherited from her father was her auburn hair that the Japanese did not have.

"Oh." she stopped in her thought of how family was. "I haven't really gotten your name. If it isn't much trouble can I ask what your name is?"

Facing the boy beside her she held out her hand for him to shake, something she hadn't really done just before the end of winter. "My name is Aki Sei. Fifth Year Hufflepuff."

At the sight of the Hufflepuff girl's tears, Elias Deveaux looked away to give her the privacy that she deserved. Elias hated it when other people saw him cry, so he almost never cried in public. He wondered if the girl felt embarrassed for her emotional outburst. Taking out a white handkerchief from his pocket, he passed it to the girl.

I know very little about my mother too. As usual, the words were on the tip of his tongue, but Elias found that he was unable to comfort the girl. There were certain subjects that were still taboo. Despite never having met his mother, Elias found the memories too painful to bring up still. He wanted to talk to someone about it, but he lacked the courage to do so every time. This was one of those time and pretty soon, the opportunity would slip away. The Hufflepuff was only a mudblood, but he felt that she was stronger than him at this moment. The ability to disclose information so easily about her sad past to someone who had scorned her was most certainly rare. She was someone Elias could admire, even if he would admit these thoughts outside of his mind. The girl would never know of course. She'd continue to think of him as a quiet boy who rarely spoke. He was fine with that because he hated getting closer to other people. In a quiet voice, as if he was speaking in the library and did not want anyone to hear, he said, “You are kind and patient, like your mother. It's been a pleasure to talk with you.”

“Where I am right now, I am unable to see the beginnings. Maybe one day, when the storm is over,” said Elias, still maintaining his polite tone. He still made no attempt to further explain.

“You say that family is always here, but your father still has not returned even after your mother passed away. How can you say that?” asked Elias, not unkindly. He was sure she meant her words, but he wasn't sure he understood. To him, everything was ephemeral so concepts like “always” were vague.

Elias shook her hand after a few seconds of hesitation, not sure if he should touch a Muggleborn so easily. Her hand felt soft and warm, like a normal pair of hands. “My name is Elias Deveaux. I'm in my fourth year. I'm also a Slytherin. I think we should keep it at that. I don't have any intention to associate with you outside of these walls. Given your blood status.” He knew he was being blunt with his words and might have possibly hurt the already crying girl even more. That was why he didn't bother being kind. However, he did not want to cause any misunderstandings between the two. They would never become friends because that was how the wizarding world worked.

Elias stared at the walls. “Maybe one of us should go check to see if Kiedis is gone. I can do it if you're scared.” Truthfully, the wizard wasn't all that eager to go on his own, but he didn't think a crying girl was suited for the task.
