Raymond was leaning against the stone, staring down at the Quad.

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

Sophronia stormed to the battlements with her bow, having just recieved a letter from the parents regarding potential suitors. She wanted to let off some steam.

He raised his eyebrows to the girl that walked in, seemingly very peeved. "Sickle for your thoughts, milady?"

 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She regards him, "Only a sickle? I'll sell them for a galleon, at least."

He chuckled. "You've got some pricey thoughts."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She strings her bow as she says, "One supposes. Why would you wish to know anyway?"

He shrugged as he watches her prep. "It's generally how one starts a conversation," he said. "As well as the fact that you looked rather annoyed when you walked up just now, and some buy into the idea that venting... or sharing their thoughts leads to feeling better about a situation."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer

 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She shoots, hitting a bullseye at the target. "Thoughts are disease to the mind. Share them, and you spread them." She eyes him. "My parents want to package me off and marry me." She says in an irritated voice.

"So do mine," he said, shrugging. "Seems that's... nearly everyone's dilemma these days. So what makes your predicament so much worse?"

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She rolls here eyes, shoots another neat bullseye and then says, "Men are moronic creatures."

"Nice shot," he said. "You and a lady named Cedrica should compete sometime. And not all men are moronic. Some are just moreso than others," he added with a wink.

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She allows a half-smile. "I shall keep an ear out for the name." She sits down on a nearby bench and considers his statement, "Not all men are moronic, but why take the chance? Why shan't I have any aspirations in life all because some man wants to preen me to be his wife and raise his ugly children?" She begins, angrily. "What about my strengths and my own virtues? Why must I sacrifice all I could achieve just to pleasure an oaf that will simply drunkenly roll around and say the wrong name? And in the off-chance he is beautiful, must I worry about other frivolous young frumpets running around chasing him." She stops, realising her tirade, but doesnt apologise.

He turned around, leaning against the stone and smiled at her. "And why should I be forced into a partnership when I've got two older brothers who will inherit everything first? Why force me into a marriage where my wife will just grumble to me about her lost freedoms and the woes of child-rearing, when I could be off gallivanting in the next jousting tournament or... something similar? What about my freedoms? And my choices?"

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She scoffs, "Oh please, you're a man, if you're smart, you'll make your own fortune. Women can't do anything these days. I can't own land on my own right, but you can. So don't complain."

He folded his arms and observed her for a moment. "I'm not, I was making a point. Marriage doesn't have to be all that. It could be a partnership between a man and a woman. And even if it is arranged, they can learn to love each other, rather than continuously finding fault in their partner. They can grow old in happiness, or in bitterness. It seems to me that it's a choice on both ends."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She raises an eyebrow. "What an idealistic notion." She says with a hint of a chuckle. "But I suppose you could convince yourself it's going to happen to you." She stands up and takes another shot. "I don't want to settle or grow old. I want to be happy in my own right, and if that involves marriage, it would be by my choice." She says pointedly.

"Who would you choose if given the choice?"

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She smiles coyly. "I'm thirteen. I don't expect to make tha decision for a long while now." She says. "What makes you interested so suddenly?"

"Just wondering if there was anyone on your list yet," he said, flashing her a grin. "I'm fifteen, and since I'm one of the youngest in my family... I like to think I'd have some pull with Maman et Papa. And that they might let me choose if I made a suitable suggestion."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She places a hand on her hip. "And you think I'm a suitable suggestion?"

He grinned at her. "You're sharp as a tack, you've got a clearly defined set of values and desires, aims and ideals, you're an excellent shot, which tells me you take pride in what you love," he said, gesturing to the bow, "And you're beautiful," he added softly.

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

She laughs, "I wonder how many poor ladies you've used that on." She muses.

"None," he said honestly. "Well, I mean, I was honest about Cedrica, and was honest with her about her archery abilities. I saw her take out two birds with one shot."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

"Tell me, do you have a fixation for ladies who could skewer you?" She asks with a light laugh.


Raymond1

"Perhaps I have a fixation for ladies with precision, and a good eye."

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer
Slytherin, Third Year
 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

"Well thats extremely materialistic! I could go through an accident tomorrow and never be able to shoot again, would you still be interested?" She asks, half-joking.

His trademark grin came back. "You're right. As soon as you lose the inability to practice one thing, I'd lose interest entirely. Forget about everything else I said about you having aims and ideals, and all that rubbish." His tone was sarcastic, but light.

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer

 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

"How chivalrious, truly." She admits. "But all my suitors provide me with at least a name."


Raymond1

He gave a bit of a mock bow. "Raymond Lisieux. And who did I share the pleasure of this conversation with?"

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer

 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

"Sophronia Chamberlain." She says, "You weren't as irritating as the other boys in this school."


Raymond1

"I'll consider that high praise," he said with a grin.

 

Sophroniawb

Sophronia Chamberlain -Elegant Archer

 – "A Lady walks as though she has a secret, but speaks for the world to hear."

"It is." She says plainly. "Perhaps I shall see you again, soon?"

"I'd like that," he said grinning, pushing himself off the stone. "I'll see you around, Miss Chamberlain," he said nodding to her as he headed back into the castle.
