the better cousin...

When Things Start To Wear You Down...

Timeline: September 2007 and onwards.
Characters: Alphonsine Claris, Faiz Claris, Cadence Griffin and others.
Place[s]: Hogwarts and Hogsmeade... maybe others.

Current Place: Library, Hogwarts.

Pho was sitting cross-legged on the floor in a corner of the library, somewhere near the Mythology and History sections of the library. It was her only sanctuary in school now, apart from her small place in the girl's (Fifth Year) dorm. She felt utterly disgusted with herself and was angry at her father, uncle Horatio and aunt Jeanette.

Why would they ever do something like that to me... to us? I hate them!

She sat there on the floor reading a book on some mythology or something, she couldn't remember what though... well that and sulking.

"You're welcome," he muttered, wondering how he had wounded himself into complimenting this girl far too much. But he couldn't help it - he was being honest, and maybe for the first time of his life too. All right, he was exaggerating. He had met amazing girls before, but Pho was different. He didn't know why but she just was. She was just not easily fooled when he tried to flatter her.

And now he couldn't help but lean closer to her and brushing his lips against hers.

Pho froze the moment his lips brushed against her own, it wasn't that she hated it but simply that because of what recently happened she was just... scared of being hurt like that again. She didn't know what to say so quickly she pulled away and got up from her chair running from the pub.

She frowned as she looked up at the sky after having felt numerous raindrops fall upon her head. Just wonderful, she thought as she ran left of the Three Broomsticks.
Cade was suprised (and his ego bursted a little) when Pho pulled herself away from him. He opened his mouth to ask her what was wrong but never got a chance because she had gotten up and ran away. Since when did girls ran away from him when he tried to kiss them? Since never. He sat there, slightly dumbfounded, before getting up and running after her.

It was raining too, unfortunately. He had never liked rain. Cade looked around for her, and turned left. He sighed in relief when he saw her standing by herself. Knowing that he would not be heard because of the rain that pounded the ground, he walked to her, tentatively placing both hands on her shoulder before hugging her.

Her long hair was flat and was just hanging either side of her head, totally drenched by the rain. But for some strange reason she didn't really care at all. Besides all she kept thinking about now was just when Cade kissed her and all she did was run away.

I'm so stupid...

She didn't really react when Cade had walked towards her and placed his hands on her shoulder before hugging her. But she felt a little comforted by the action.

"I'm... sorry," she mumbled, not even sure that he had heard her.
Cade could only make out what she was saying in the pouring rain, but he was certain that she had apologised. He wanted to tell her that it was his fault, but it wasn't in his nature to just admit his mistake. He gently pushed her away and turned her around, leaning forward slowly so that she had a choice whether or not to kiss him.

He had never pictured himself having to kiss in the rain, but it wasn't so bad after all.
He was giving her a choice, she would hate to have to admit it but she was surprised by that, a choice that she felt if she were to decline she wouldn't really get that choice again. She blinked a little as the rain poured down on them trickling down her face as she let out a small breath she didn't even know she was holding.

You're being too slow...

Slowly she reached out with her right hand and with the back of it she lightly caressed his cheek, not sure why she was doing that but it made her smile. And leaning forward, that small distance between them closing, she brushed her lips against his slowly but surely.
Faiz Cade smiled into the kiss; he had predicted that she would kiss him. Of course, he wasn't being all boastful about it, but it was nice to have the girl you like kissing you. He placed his hands on her hips, pulling her closer (if that was possible). It was getting pretty cold, but he didn't really care. He liked having this moment with her, and he preferred prolonging it.

But he wasn't that insensitive. He pulled away from her slowly, and rather hesitantly.

"Would you like to come over to my place?" he asked. "It's pretty near and it would save you the trouble."

He was inviting her to go his place.

He was inviting her to go to his place. He was probably asking for trouble from Vasser but he knew that the man wasn't there so...
She knew some of the implications that would come about by her accepting his offer, but she found herself wanting to go anyway. Before the whole potion thing had happened she was already beginning to like him, so she thought that maybe this wouldn't be wrong at all.

"Sure, okay," she replied. "And save me the trouble of what?"
He knew that when a girl started asking questions when he invited her to come over, it would mean that the girl was suspicious. Well there was nothing to be suspicious about, he didn't have degrading behaviour when girls came to his place. "From the rain," he answered her, chuckling softly, then tugged on a strand of her wet hair. "Silly."
She stuck her tongue out at Cade. "I'm not silly. So which way to your place then?"

Pho still remembered what had happened before at Hogwarts, would probably always remember, but right then she was definitely happier than she had been for a long while.

I just hope it last that way, at least for a while...
Once they had arrived at his and Xavier's cottage, Cade took out his keys and unlocked the door, leading her in. "Well, here we are," he muttered, looking around for signs of his housemate. Fortunately for them both, he wasn't there. He took out his wand and waved it at Pho, muttering a drying spell so that her clothes were dry, and did it to himself too.

He smiled at her apologetically. "Maybe I should have realised earlier that it almost always rains here in Scotland."
"Thanks," she said. "It's alright, not your fault. I'm kind of used to all the rain now, well mostly."

She felt better now that she was dry, even if her hair was still a little wet. She took a quick look around the cottage, finding it to be rather neat and she wasn't all that surprised seeing as Cade always appeared to be a neat person.
Cade quirked an eyebrow. "Used to it?" he smiled before moving closer to her, wanting to kiss her again. It was most relieving that his housemate wasn't there. "Will you be used to me kissing you everytime I meet you?" he smiled, holding her hand tightly.

My God, I am turning into a sap.

And for some reason, he liked it.
"Well that depends," she said, smirking afterwards. "How often you plan on meeting me?"

Her mood had most definitely improved now, as she was genuinely happier and she was now teasing Cade. She smiled up at him, as she took Cade's other hand into her own.

"As much as I can," he said softly before kissing her once more, this time deeply. Cade pushed her gently against the wall so that they were both comfortable - snogging. He was used to this anyway, but he had never felt better about kissing someone, which was very strange.

Then again she had always had that strange effect on him.
"I'll be looking forward to it then," she managed to reply before being kissed once again.

She'd never really done this sort of thing before and was of the opinion that the potion incident didn't count at all. But she found herself liking it and slowly wrapped one arm around his neck, resting her hand against the base of his neck as she kissed him back.
Cade deepened his kiss, deciding that if there were audiences watching them at the moment, they would surely be told off to get a room. That was the difference though; they was nobody in the house, except for them. I could really get used to this, he thought, smiling into the kiss for an instant; one of his hands sliding underneath her blouse to touch the skin underneath it. Soft, he smiled once more, kissing her intensely than before.
Pho continued to kiss Cade, not even aware of anything else happening around them. She was rather surprised at herself and how comfortable she was with this, after all this was her first time doing this sort of thing. And like all things she spoke too soon, for the moment Cade's hand slid underneath her blouse she froze.

It wasn't that she found it uncomfortable, she just didn't know how to react to the simple action.
Just as his hands were roaming her back, he noticed that she had stopped kissing him. Frowning slightly, Cade pulled back, giving her a questioning look. He wondered whether she was out of breath - hell, both of them were out of breath. His face was flushed, and he was breathing heavily. He couldn't help but feel a little relieved that he had pulled away from her for a moment. "What's wrong?" he asked, kissing her neck gently before looking at her again, knowing that he didn't do anything wrong. Girls liked him kissing them, and he knew he was a good kisser.

Maybe there was something she was unsure of.
She smiled shyly and was blushing, not just from what she was feeling but because she felt rather inexperienced and she wasn't sure what Cade was used to.

"Nothing's wrong..." she started off a little nervously, sort of liking the feeling of him kissing her neck. "It's just, I've never... done this... before."

Now I wonder what he'll say to that...
"Done what? This?" He kissed her forcedfully, his hand making its way underneath her blouse, lifting it slightly for demonstration. He pulled away, giving her an innocent look. "Was that what you meant, m'lady?" He smiled a little at her naiveness. There was nothing wrong with it, of course. Just... well.. he was easily amused, he supposed.
She gasped at what Cade did next, taken by surprise and yet... she found herself enjoying it. She nodded soundlessly, not trusting herself to speak right now. That and it felt to her as if he was amused by her naievty.

Makes me feel just a little bit worse...
Uh-oh, bet she's feeling awkward now.

He took her hand and led her towards one of the couches, making her sit down. "We don't have to do anything you don't like," he said, though inside he actually wanted to keep on snogging her, but Cade knew that being persistent was wrong. That, and she wasn't even sixteen... yet. He kissed her forehead gently.

Damn it.
She smiled a little as she sat down next to Cade. "It's not that I don't like it, because I do," she said sheepishly. "It's just... I'm not quite sure what to do."

Pho hoped he wasn't all that disappointed with her and her naievity. Even though she didn't want to remember the love potion incident, she had to admit with Cade it was... well... so much better.

Maybe because that whole thing I found myself liking him...
