(Serena Towers & Amelia Lovell)
Serena peeked down the corridor, wondering which way to go. She loved to explore and wanted to find all of the secret passages in the school. However, it was something she had quickly forgotten about after being made Prefect. Her role required her to patrol several floors as part of her duties. It took a lot of time out of her day - and it was starting to get tedious walking around on the same floors. She was so familiar with everything on those floors, it was becoming a bit of a pain. Today was a special case. She had some free time after class and before dinner. Instead of sitting around in the common room or dorms, which is what she would normally do, she thought she'd make an effort to visit a floor she had not seen much before.
The fifth floor was one of those areas. In fact, she had barely touched anything above the third floor as her dorms and most of her classes were below that level. She knew there was a Prefects' Bathroom around here somewhere but she had not actually seen it yet. Deciding to try and find it, she had found her way here. However, the corridors were long and there were so many random rooms - how was she meant to be find anything in this gigantic castle?
Deciding to go right at this point, Serena started to walk down the new corridor she had entered. If she was not mistaken, if she went up a few floors and continued down this corridor, she would end up in the West Tower where the Owlery was. The Asian girl was trying to find her bearings and get a sense of direction by relating things to places she did know or had been to once or twice before. It somewhat helped.
The girl noticed a door on the right that she was about to pass. Pausing outside it, she looked around to see if it said Prefects' Bathroom or anything. But there were no signs. Frowning a little, she pushed down on the handle. The door was unlocked. "Huh..." Serena pushed it open, taking a peek inside. It was an empty classroom...? She frowned a little, entering it as she wondered why it was not assigned to any classes. There were no plagues on the door to say what it was for or indication in the room of what it might be used for. Perhaps it was just a spare room for studying.
She walked around a little inside, more so out of curiosity than care. Serena did not actually care what the classroom was used for. She was just curious as to why it was so empty. In all honesty, she wondered if there was any hidden secrets in the room. Perhaps a fake door. That would be cool. Not seeing anything obvious, Serena turned around to leave.
It was at this moment that she caught her foot on a table leg and went flying forward into the ground, "Wo-OOAH!" In her attempt to catch herself, she waved her arms around like mad and ended up catching one of the magical candles in her hand.
A magical candle was a candle that floated in the air. It was great and incredibly useful. They were used often in the Great Hall to light up the beautiful room. The candlelight flickering looked so lovely. There was a cosy feel to it, as well. At least... that was all true until you accidentally grab one and end up falling with it in your hand, "AAAAAAAH!" She yelled out as she fell. The flame in her line of sight as she fell. Instantly, she foolishly let go of the candle out of instinct. Trying to distance herself from the flame that had flickered in her eyes. She hated fire. Well, she was beginning to really hate seeing it so close to her.
The flame was luckily blown out in the speed of the fall. It hit the stone floor below and distinguished itself before she could do any real damage. However, as she let go, it ended up spilling hot wax everywhere as it spun around in the air. Including a few droplets that got caught on the hand that had been holding it.
Her scream echoed in the room, escaping down the corridor. It hurt more immensely than she even realised it would. Hitting the floor, face face, at the same time definitely did not help. She had her hands out in front of her to break her fall slightly but it still ached. The Hufflepuff groaned, lying forward on the ground. Everything hurt right now. This definitely summed up why she should not go out alone...
Oh Serena, you do need to stop being so clumsy.
