Marian had never thought about her parents much. They were just the usual wizarding parents. Why did Amber ask that question? And what did she mean, "the open wounds from her past?" Marian decided to talk to her about that later, in private. There were too many people here.
"My parents were fine, ordinary wizarding parents. I wasn't spoiled, but I wasn't neglected, either."
The dares this round were very servere, things like making up your own spell, and asking a boy out, so Marian, deciding to play it safe, said:
"I don't realy want to play anymore after this. You guys can keep playing, but I'd rather not."
Marian's brain started wandering, wondering about Amber's mysterious backstory, then thinking about classes and schoolwork. It was getting late, almost 17:00, and Marian's stomach was rumbling. The candy didn't help, but she tried (to no avail) to ignore the empty feeling in her stomach.
"Are you guys hungry for dinner, too?"
Marian decided to pack up her stuff, except for the blanket they were sitting on, and, after saying goodbye to them, saying she'll hopefully see them again soon, left to drop off her picnic supplies at her dormitory before dinner at the great hall.
