"Not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life just sucks."
I might take you up on that. Right, okay. Maybe you should look harder? I don’t think anyone read that much into it. They were probably just going with the feet thing..
Oh wonderful! I’m always looking for more people to eat my baking, the first years can be dreadfully ungrateful and it wasn’t until I became really nasty for a week that I realised perhaps there’s better people that deserve cakes in the castle. Oh trust me, I haven’t given up just yet. I reckon they’re hiding them in a broom cupboard somewhere that is totally out of use. Otherwise I’ll just have to get myself some new shoes, which is a shame because they have the right shoe to one of my favourite pairs of shoes. Probably, I tend to over think the small details though.
I really don’t think they will, or I will actually. Never mind. Yeah… that’s not all that funny. Unless you’re the one who took a shoe from someone, but still that’s a terrible prank. Because don’t flamingos stand on one foot?
Well if you ever need cake I’m always around, you can always rely on me for cake. Or biscuits, sometimes I have biscuits instead of cakes. Oh don’t be silly it’s not a prank, it’s nargles. They always steal my things! The sad part is that I never seem to find my things. Yeah but I don’t have a beak, I’m not pink and i’m definitely not as beautiful or extravagant to be called a flamingo.
Thanks. [ he takes the cake.] I don’t think anything can really make that sad slytherin happy. Sure. What’s so funny?
You’re very welcome. Hmm, well that’s a shame but I’ll sure they’ll perk up one day, as will you. Sad moments make the happy ones all the more special. Oh well I woke up the other morning to discover at all my right shoes had been taken by nargles! So now I’m walking around with only a left shoe on and I thought it was funny because I’m always saying I have two left feet and it’s like the nargles heard me and wanted to prove me wrong. That’s sort of funny right? It’s probably just me but now I have to hope about whenever I go outside, a lot of people have been giggling. Someone even called me a flamingo! How can I be a flamingo if i’m not even pink?
Would you mind if I had some of the vanilla one? Yeah…I guess I am.
Of course you can dearest. Eden took the cake from a box in her bag and handed it to Rabastan carefully. That’s a shame, I ran into another sad Slytherin the other day but she said that cakes didn’t make her feel any better. I’ve got it in my head that comfort eating is the key for everyone but sadly it’s not. Would you like to hear something funny? I find it funny anyway you might not.
….What kind of cake?
Well I’ve got two actually, I had even more spare time today. I’ve got double chocolate chip muffins which are still a little warm I think and just plain vanilla with buttercream icing. Are you sad too?
Do you have another smoke?
Sorry, I don’t smoke… I have cakes though.
Even something really really bad?
Yes, even the absolutely dreadful things. You’ve got to stick with people even through the bad times, it’s whats makes us stronger.
Not me, believe me. (She nods) And do you think true love can conquer all? Like, if you love someone, really love them, do you think you could forgive the bad things they did?
Ok, but I do find it really hard to grasp I hope you understand that. Absolutely. If I were definitely in love with another person like for sure then I would be able to forgive them for something bad so long as I knew they were sorry. I mean it could take me some time to totally understand and forgive completely but I’d definitely try if it were someone I loved with all my heart.
