PostSubject: Among the books (Tag: Lucien)    Fri Mar 22, 2013 3:15 pm

It was another quiet afternoon at Hogwarts, not that Lore paid any attention, she was more interested in the book she was currently reading. The library was oddly "empty" today cept with a few students that would come and go as well as a few ghosts.

Lore bit her lower lip awkwardly, as much she would rather be doing something else...probably something active for once on a Saturday...she just didn't know how to socialize with others. It was just rather unnerving and annoying! Then again she figured other students probably found her weird...she almost spends most of her free time in the library after all.

She frowned, shutting her slate green eyes as she ran her hand against a familiar bookshelf. She stopped, selecting a book she had read on countless occasions. It was some sort of folklore or history book and what not, she didn't even look twice at the title or the name of the author when she came across it.

Her pale fingers brushed through the old pages of the book, feeling the roughened texture of parchment beneath her finger tips. Ah...how she loved books, they contained so much knowledge that it probably surpassed some of the greatest wizarding minds to date. Well, that's what she liked to think.

Lucien breathed in the all so familiar scent of aged paper. The library seemed emptier than usual, bringing a small satisfied smile upon his lips.

Upon reached the desired aisle-Ancient History, his hand retrieved a miniature pile of books from his pocket. The crowds on the way to the library often proved troublesome to some who wanted to return a pile of books.
He had already notified the librarian that he would be returning them...They probably knew form his frequent visits that he wouldn't decide to 'steal' them.

Engorgio. The books returned to normal size. He started to return them back to their places, his memory clear on their locations. He was finished within seconds.

His eyes drifted to a table. Though he only intended to return books, the thought of poring himself over books, was a pleasant one...

Lore began reading through her favorite chapter of the book, just as she was about to turn the page she heard someone walk in. Now, normally she would keep reading though something in particular made her want to look up. So she did. Her slate green eyes fell on another student who was currently returning books he had borrowed. By the way he was dressed she assumed he was from the Slytherin house.

Lore felt herself sink into the chair a bit, hoping she wouldn't have to start a rather awkward conversation with him.

Quickly she averted her eyes back into the book.

He wasn't really one to believe in superstitions but he felt someones eyes on him. Lucien peered over his shoulder, he only saw a few students, noses too busy burrowed in books.

Superstitions, he repeated again.

He slowly pulled a book out from the shelf. Theories on Transubstantial Transfiguration. He had already read the book a few times during the abundant free time he held, memorizing the many laws and theories. It wouldn't hurt to read once more would it?

He gently placed the book on the closest table and took a seat. His oddly coloured eyes wandered, unfortunately the seat across was taken by a girl. He inwardly sighed, moving would be too much effort for his dislike of other people. Luckily, she seemed meek and quiet enough to not bother his reading.

Lore couldn't help but frown slightly as the boy chose the seat across from her. At the sound of a book being placed down on the table, she looked up. She arched her eyebrow curiously at the book on the table, not all too familiar with transfiguration; she decided to mentally add it to her queue of books to read. She shifted uneasily hunching over trying to block her view of the boy with her book.

Lucien leaned forward as his fingers gently turned the front cover.

He was distracted by the movements of the girl across him. His eyes glanced down to the peaking Ravenclaw badge. Though he disliked most people in this school, Ravenclaws were probably the least disliked on his list ~save one particular Hufflepuff. They were clever, conversations weren't always simple gossip and they weren't as noisy as the Hufflepuffs either.

"It must be quite uncomfortable, reading like that" Lucien chuckled, keeping his voice low yet it was loud enough to be heard by the girl. Often the librarian could be as vicious as a Hungarian Horntail, he wasn't keen on being removed from his sanctuary so soon.

Lore lifted her eyes slightly from her book when the boy spoke. The corner of her mouth twitched as if she was going to speak before closing it. She sat there in silence trying to formulate some sort of reply to the boy, "Perhaps I..." she paused for a moment trying to translate German to English, "I can read better this way." she replied quickly in a thick German accent.

After a few seconds her lips formed a slight scowl in embarrassment thinking her response was utterly stupid, "Uhh..." she mumbled quietly, straightening her posture in her seat.

He smirked, recognizing her accent.

"Deutsch?"

He had picked up a few snippets of languages after he had begged Eugene to teach him.

"Really?" He raised an eyebrow to her, "It almost seems as if you're cradling a bad headache" he smirked. He had already noticed the sudden tension in her body when he had sat down. It wasn't really that hard to recognize the reason.

He leaned forwards, closer to her personal space. "You don't need any medicine do you?" he asked, a slight amusement in his eyes.
As he said before...Ravenclaws were the least disliked...

"Ja..."she mumbled instinctively when the boy said Deutsch. Lore uneasily let her slate green eyes fall on her book; desperately trying not to make as much eye contact with him in hopes he'll just get bored and wonder away from her.

She couldn't help but feel her cheeks heat up in annoyance when he stated that she seemed to be cradling a bad headache. Hell she'll be lucky if she didn't come out of the library with one. Her lips twitched a bit, feeling as though the boy was smirking at her at this point. She quietly looked up from her book, letting her eyes meet his two colored ones, "Nein nicht ich Medizin notwendig----.... " she paused quickly correcting herself, "N-no, I don't need any medicine..." she muttered as she leaned back so he wasn't in her personal space.

He smiled as his hearing proved corrected. He was that she wasn't Austrian...Lucien disliked being wrong.

His eyes fell upon her blushing cheeks, then onto her green eyes.

"So you really do have a headache?" He quizzed, raising an eyebrow. He adjusted his position so his cheek was propped up by his elbow, his other hand freely on his book, his eyes were watching the girl intently all the time.

"Nein, no....if I did I wouldn't be in here." she stated in a hushed whisper, "Might I ask why a Slytherin would be here? Not that I discriminate or have a distaste for the other houses..I figured someone like you would be out socializing." she said arching her eyebrow.

He raised another eyebrow. "Socializing?" he smirked, "If i recall, this here would count as socializing," His smile was there, but his eyes told otherwise. He was far from one to socialize...He had felt slightly insulted, being grouped with the other irritating snakes in his house.

His eyes wandered down to the book in front of her. Despite his dislike for the sorting of houses...she did fall into a typical Ravenclaw.
"That's lucky," he replied as she said that she had no headache, " I don't discriminate or have a distaste for the other houses, but i heard that you Ravenclaws are very clever, how do you feel about a puzzle, a game perhaps?" He smirked, using her same words with her

"On the contraire...I wouldn't count this as socializing." she said frowning slightly at his smile.

She arched her eyebrow at the boy again when he decided to quote her, "Cute. Do you usually quote others?" she asked sarcastically as she closed her book, "Puzzles and games?" she asked, "Are you implying we should play a game?" she asked, slightly intrigued.

"You wound me, Miss" Lucien feigned hurt, placing his free hand over his chest.

"I've been known to, us Slytherins are, unfortunately, not as...bright as Ravenclaws such as yourself." once more he was stressing the house stereotyping. He had disliked the segregation into houses from day one. Why was he, a Muggleborn placed under the name of the 'righteous' Salazar Slytherin?

He smirk and he too closed his book cover. He leaned forwards, "Despite being in different houses, everybody enjoys a game every once in a while."

Lore let a slight chuckle pass her lips seeing the boy pretend to act hurt by her comment. He's not so bad... she thought.

"Well, I do fancy a game once in a while...." she replied simply.

Lucien gave a delighted smile, but like always, his eyes remained untouched.

"Lucien Dupre," he introduced himself, holding out a hand across the table.

He was glad that she had been willing. If not, he would have to find another person to whittle away his boredom.

A game was always fun.

"Ich bin Lore Schiffer." she said simultaneously extending her hand after Lucien introduced himself, "Pleasure to meet you Herr Dupre." she said gripping his hand.

"Schiffer..."Lucien repeated the name quietly, associating the name with the face in his mind.

He released her hand and in her palm was a small Muggle puzzle...a Rubix cube.

"We'll start off easy ja?" He smirked, leaning back slightly, "Solve all the puzzles and i'll gladly relieve you of my presence."

His book soon transfigured into a small timer. The librarian would certainly rage upon seeing the treatment of her books he smirked to himself, unfazed.

"I think three minutes must be feasible," he said, waiting for her.

"This is what you call easy?" she half teased as she fiddled with the rubix cube. Her eyes lighting up with interest, "Alright three minutes. For the rubix challenge?"

"Ja," he smiled. It had first taken him four hours, then half an hour, then two minutes. He had taken it up as a newly set challenge when he lost interest in visits to town...

His fingers brushed the start button. "Three," tap "two," tap "one," beep. His ring finger pushed the button and his hand returned back to propping up his chin.

Let's see how she'll fare.

Drei....zwei...eine... thought Lore as Lucien counted in English. Lore shifted the right face of the cube, then counter clock wise with a few flicks of her fingers. She flicked the left face of the cube then counter clockwise simultaneously with the right face. She then proceeded with the back face, down face, and the front face of the Rubik cube. Each with a precise 1/4ths rotation.

Lore was completely familiar with this muggle puzzle given the fact she is a halfblood. The first time she actually solved a Rubik cube it took her more than two hours, but of course after a few more hours of practice she was able to finish within three minutes and fifteen seconds. Hopefully she'll be able to beat her old time.

Lucien's eyes were attached to her fingers, watching them manipulate the Rubix cube with such ease. From a third-person point of view, it was really something different...the way the colors were all but a blur.

It took him to realize that around one and a half minutes had passed. His gaze wandered to their surroundings, they were lucky enough to be secluded from any interruptions.

Lore stopped, setting the completed Rubik cube down, "Time?" she asked looking at Lucien.

Lucien was pulled out of his trance. He looked over to the stopwatch and arched an eyebrow.

"1 minute 40," his tone was amused. She had beaten his score even though he endlessly challenged himself with the Muggle puzzle for days on end in his boredom.

"Gut gemacht Frau Schiffer." He congratulated as the stopwatch transfigured back to it's paged form. Lucien pushed it to the side with the back of his hand, they didn't have a use for it anymore.

Lore's eyes lit up, "Really?" she replied a little dumbfounded by her time. She blinked a few times chuckling as Lucien congratulated her, "I think you mean Fraulein Schiffer." she mused, "Frau is used when a woman is married."
