What in the world was she doing?
Surely, she had gone out of her mind. Maybe for real this time. The set curfew was long gone and here was Frost, still out in the corridors. Never had she stayed out past the curfew before, scared to get into trouble. Even as a second year. Nobody needed unnecessary trouble. The girl had never been one to ever get caught up in problems. Heck, she could barely remember the last time she did.
Maybe she would've been in bed if she had half a brain and the decency to keep track of the time. How hard was it really to do such a simple task? Could it just be her pre-teenage brain that urged her to get out of bed? She had just been laying there thinking about how long it had been since she went star gazing. It was one of her favorite things to do and it reminded her of all the times she used to look through a telescope with her dad and siblings.
But not even two floors up, her darn conscience hit her like a point-blank bullet to the gut. It didn't hurt her physically, but she whatever had urged her to go in the first place had so quickly subsided in that moment. Now, she was realizing how absolutely stupid it was for her to be out here. There was no way she wanted to get into trouble. Not tonight, or ever if she could help it.
Frost had just fully processed what she was doing and stopped in her tracks. It was quiet in the halls as she made her way back. Almost too quiet save for a few echoed footsteps that could be heard. Seemed far away enough for her not to be seen. Her feet moved at a fast pace solely out of how much she wanted to get back into bed and pretend this never even happened.
Hazel eyes glued to her feet as they moved forward, feeling as though she knew the route well enough. Everything kept low in fear of being seen. That was until she bumped straight into something else. It was solid and it was enough to knock her back a little. Just enough to make her traverse back and catch herself from tripping. Frost's head snapped up just as quick, scanning the area before her for the thing she had ran into.
"Oh dear, I'm so very sorry." The lump in her throat grew hard to swallow as her eyes met with the other's blue ones. The girl before her was a few inches taller than her and it was making it worse for her. For certain, the last thing she wanted right now was for her to be angry with Frost.

And her heart was the best part, it would always calm the storm for those scared of a little rain.
