     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.

NIGHTTIME had always intrigued the young Bishop heiress. The way everything was completely quiet, dark - or at least barely illuminated - made her want to stay up as long as possible just to take in everything she could. Besides, there were so many things she could do at night that she couldn't during the day - so why in the world would she go sleep? Hogwarts at night was beautiful, with the torches and the paintings and the suits of armor... Oh, she could go on forever. 

Yes, she realized that she was staying up past curfew - but she technically was patrolling the halls. Just enjoying the night peace that came with it as well. A smile never leaving her face, Rhea slowly walked through the halls, making her way through the floors that she was supposed to patrol. Although, she wasn't really looking with a careful eye for rule-breakers - she figured they would hear her coming and would scram, so she wouldn't even find them anyway. 

The candles and torches lining the corridors provided adequate light for Rhea to be able to see in front of her, but not enough to be able to see everything around her. It didn't bother her, though, for the only thing she needed to see was wherever she would step, in order not to trip or anything. As she made her way through the corridors, the girl began to hum underneath her breath - a soft lullaby that her nanny used to sing for her when she was younger, in order to make her fall asleep. The song itself brought up memories and nostalgia, which spurred a few tears to appear. She wiped her eyes furiously and blinked the tears out; why was she crying?

Too focused on getting rid of the sudden tears that had appeared for absolutely no reason, Rhea ended up not looking in front of her and bumped into something right in front of her. Squeaking, Rhea began to wave her arms wildly to stop herself from falling. Her eyes widened and she stared at what she had just bumped into - it was a short girl, a few inches shorter than her. At the apology that fell out of the girl's mouth, Rhea's eyes widened even more and she waved her off. "Oh, no, it's quite alright! I wasn't looking in front of me, it's completely my fault," the redhead smiled sheepishly, and rubbed the back of her neck nervously. "Sorry."

She hoped the other girl wasn't too shaken up by Rhea walking into her. "But hey, why are you up so late? You do know it's past curfew, right?" Rhea had no plans of busting the girl for being up at this time of night, especially when she herself was up. Maybe the other girl also wanted to enjoy the peace and quiet that the night provided, or perhaps she just wanted to get away from her rowdy dormitory. Realizing that the question was a bit intrusive, Rhea pressed her lips together and added on, "You don't have to tell me if you don't want to, I didn't mean to pry."

the trouble is, if you don't risk anything -- you risk more.

     The girl right in front of her was unintentionally intimidating in that moment. Maybe in a different circumstance she wouldn't have seemed to be, but right now, this girl was scaring the living daylights of of Frost. Perhaps not intentionally, but there was nothing the redhead wanted to avoid more than trouble. And judging by the time of night it was and that she had just run into a prefect, the odds of her dodging the detention was very slim. 

     She was shocked when she had apologized and said it was her fault instead. Was this girl not going to bust her? Couldn't she have just skipped the apology and went straight to the yelling? So the Hufflepuff couldn't help but feel weirdly relieved, her eyebrows knitted ever so slightly. It was silent in the halls. Complete silence except for the low speaking of the girl and her thoughts. The redhead was already working on an apology speech in her head. 

     "Heh, it is very late yes I know." Frost let out a sigh, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear while staring at the girl's much similar hair. She was a redhead as well, and the fact made her smile a bit. "Oh, no. You aren't prying, no worry." Hazel eyes traced the shape of a torch on the wall, watching the light flicker. How the dim orange light cast itself on the stone wall nearest to it. "Honestly, I was in bed until a weird feeling came over me, almost like calling me to go look at the stars again." She spoke in a quiet tone, voice like honey in the dull stone setting. "Merlin knows how long it's been since the last time I did. There's just some things you can't do in the daytime. Surely you must know." 

     Oddly enough, the girl wasn't tired. Though usually she was asleep by this time. But her mind was going five-hundred miles an hour. All she could think of was how much trouble she was about to be in and how she should have just stayed in bed. None of this would have even happened if she had just stayed sensible. But there was no going back. Frost slouched her shoulders and the corners of her lips were down-turned. She shrugged. "So detention it is, huh? That is what happens, right?"

NOT wanting to just stare at the girl awkwardly, Rhea leaned on the wall next to her, avoiding the surrounding paintings so they wouldn't begin screaming at her. The redhead was still in a sort of daze, not really able to focus on her surroundings - perhaps that was what had caused her to bump into the stranger. 

The girl then began to speak, explaining the reason she had been out so late. Rhea nodded along, understanding almost exactly what the girl was talking about. It was kind of eerie, actually, how much Rhea found the girl's explanation equivalent to hers. "Yeah, I actually do understand what you're talking about," the redhead managed a small chuckle. "That happens to me, sometimes. Just not tonight, I'm just patrolling... kinda."

Leaning up again, Rhea kept the smile on her face. "I'm not going to bust you though, don't worry. I ran into a few kids a few minutes ago, but didn't bust them either," the Bishop shrugged, not including an explanation as to why she didn't. Quite frankly, she herself didn't know. Maybe it was because she was lazy, or because she simply did not see the need to do so - whatever the case, it would be unfair to bust this girl when she hadn't busted the ones she'd run into earlier. "Quite honestly - and don't tell anyone this, I'm trusting you," Rhea spoke with a teasing tone, "I'm just using patrolling as an excuse to walk about. It's not my turn to patrol tonight, anyway. I just wanted to admire the castle at night."

Rhea shrugged, realizing that she had just exposed herself to a total stranger. But quite frankly, she didn't care all too much. It was weird, actually, the fact that she didn't. The summer had really opened her eyes, and caused her to realize that she couldn't care about what everyone, including her parents, thought of her all the time. "Detention? Hm.. No need," Rhea shook her head, giggling a bit. Realizing that she still hadn't introduced herself, Rhea stuck out a hand. "I'm Rhea, by the way. Rhea Bishop. It's nice to meet you!"

      It seemed reasonable that the girl would want to use her prefect powers for something like that. Night patrols were probably boring for prefects and using the time to enjoy the night was probably the best solution. A breath of relief escaped her. Thank goodness the nice prefect girl wasn't going to harm Frost's currently squeaky clean 'bad stuff' record, she didn't know what she would do if she did have to go to detention and die of getting in trouble. Yes, the girl was that kind of girl that simply hated the mere idea of being in trouble.

      The pretty girl was no longer nameless, in fact having a just as equally pretty name. A small smile grew on her lips. "Ooooh! I love your name, it sounds like a princess name." Frost was just about hopping in excitement though she already knew that it wasn't like people named themselves. The night didn't decrease her brightness even though it was a quiet time. Reaching her hand out, Frost offered Rhea a polite handshake. "I'm Frost. And it's nice to meet you too, but I don't think it's exactly the best way to meet."  She laughed, trying her best to keep it quiet. But hey, meeting people when you weren't exactly supposed to still was meeting people. At that was something she could ever say no to.

       In even the mere minutes that they've been in each other's presence, Frost could already tell that she liked this girl. It was some sort of odd sense in her stomach that was just telling her that meeting Rhea wasn't at all bad. Perhaps with time, the two could be even something remotely close to friends and by no means did the Hufflepuff girl disagree with that. But for now, she wouldn't try and force it just because she had assumed Rhea was good friend material. Nobody liked to be forced into things, even if it was something as pure as friendship. 

       "I just wanted to say thank you for not giving me detention." She spoke tenderly, selling it all the more that she was being genuine with her words. The redhead may not have known her at all, but that wouldn't stop her from being polite to people. Who knew that breaking a rule could help you meet someone you might have never met?

in the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take.
RHEA giggled, sounding just like a six year old. Quite frankly, she felt like one at the moment too. Like a six year old, going against her mother's wishes and staying up later than she was supposed to. Except she wasn't 6 years old, and her mother never actually cared how late she stayed up... whatever! Rhea wasn't an edgy teen, there would be plenty of time for that in the future.

Besides, there was no point for her to focus on such trivial thing as memories when she was in the company of someone as sweet as the girl in front of her - or at least, someone who seemed sweet. From the limited amount of time Rhea had spent in the other girl's presence, she had already made the assumption that she liked her. Maybe it was the compliment she'd paid to her name, or maybe it was simply because of the other's energy. Whatever the reason, Rhea liked the girl.

Uttering a quiet giggle, Rhea tilted her head. "Does it really sound like a princess name?" a childlike smile was present on Rhea's face. "I've always wanted to be a princess," the semi-redhead admitted, looking down at her slipper clad feet. Quite frankly, she'd been treated like a princess her entire life, but never had she felt like one. Princess were treated like they were some higher force descended from the heavens above to bless the 'commoners,' but Rhea wasn't treated like that. She was treated like a regular, pretty spoiled girl. Though she looked like a princess, she wasn't one. And that was the brunt truth of it.

"Wait, is your name really Frost?" Rhea's jaw dropped, and she cracked a huge smile. "My owl's name is Frosty!" Rhea's smile widened, thinking of her owl at home. "I just got him during the summer." She maintained the smile, shaking her head happily. It wasn't everyday you found someone with the name Frost! It was such a cute and pretty name; Rhea truly couldn't help but smile upon hearing it.

Leaning against the wall, Rhea didn't seem to notice the muses in the nearby paintings glaring down at them. In fact, she didn't notice a few leaving their paintings to go into the one directly above her head, all looking down at her. It was only when they all cleared their throats, at the same time, that she finally looked up and noticed them.

"Oh! Hello," she looked between the paintings and Frost, wondering what they could possibly want. "Can we help you?" The paintings looked down sternly at her, eyebrows scrunching together as they looked between Rhea and Frost.

"Why are the two of you up past curfew?" one of the woman, an old crinkly one, asked in a nasally voice. Rhea, rather than replying, looked to Frost. The attitude of the painting caused Rhea to narrow her eyes, and she knew that if she said anything, anything at all she would blow up at the painting. For no other reason than it rubbed her the wrong way. 

in the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take.
