Not long after meeting @John Wolfe had Adlai begun to consider him a friend. They spoke on a daily basis, completed their homework together and on more than one occasion had John offered to walk her back to her houses common room.
However, unlike most friends they never really spoke of anything personal. Whenever Adlai would think a bit it, she didn’t really know John, even after spending all this time with him.
Nonetheless before she knew it winter break had passed and unlike her other friends Adlai had not written a letter to John. She hadn’t become aware of this until she returned to Hogwarts and saw him once again. She started to feel guilty very quickly, even if John didn’t care about her not sending a letter Adlai wanted to make it up to him in some way.
Thus, with a new Holiday being just around the corner Adlai hatched a plan. She would give John an extra special valentine! And everything seemed to fall into place for her when a boy was selling magical valentine treats and cards in the courtyard.
She didn’t remember exactly what he said about them, then again she didn’t really listen to him in the first place. However, she bought a card from him and that night she wrote to John, asking if they would be able to study together the next afternoon.
