So weird, so gross, just... no.
"You must be... headless Nick?" he said slowly, trying to force a smile at the apparition before him. "Not a romantic walk, just showing a friend around. Can we... go in?"
"HEADLESS NICK?" The ghost laughed hysterically at the name and threw his head back, quite literally, as he did so. "Nearly-headless, as you can see. And sure. Just walk through me to get in. Nothing wrong with going in."
Ben stared at the ghost, especially the neck where his head was hanging by a thread. It was disgusting to say the least. The muggle-born struggled to keep his cool but he also noticed Felicity seemed unhappy. He could keep his man card as his dad would call it, while still chickening out. It was the perfect avoidance.
"Actually, you know, class starts soon and we promised we'd get there early," he glanced at Felicity and hoped she got the hint. "You know us, Ravenclaws, right?"
He swore the ghost rolled his eyes on his still detached head from laughter before waving them off. Obviously he was disappointed he couldn't prank the new students more. Unless Felicity didn't take the hint and pressed ahead. Then he would have to give his man card up. Did ghosts take those? Did Wizards have man cards? Was Ben weird? Probably.
Just when I think I'm getting used to this place...
