PostSubject: I beg your pardon?   Thu Jun 28, 2012 2:48 am

Ai walked into the bar in Hogsmeade and sat at a table in the corner.

"Firewhiskey" She said. As she waited for her whiskey, she contemplated going back to Japan. She was done with school. Perhaps she should wait and see if a job at Hogwarts was in store for her. There was nothing for her in Japan, either. Her cousin, oh so wonderful Shin, would probably slam the door in her face. Her mother was a coward who couldn't stand up to the men in the family. No, she didn't need them. She didn't need anybody. Her firewhiskey came and she raised it to her lips. It was time to start a new, have hope and leave her past in the dust. She was a full fledged witch now. She could do anything. Suddenly a shadow fell over her.

"Excuse me, but you're blocking my light" She said, looking up at the stranger.

Katia wandered into The Hogs Head, intent on finding her fellow Avenger and barmaid slash pub owner Cecily, and having a few drinks in the process. She got to the bar, ordering her drink from her friend and waiting as it was paused before demanding that Cecily gave her attention. She was rather bored.

She was distracted however when she saw someone who she thought looked vaguely familiar, making her way over to the woman, seeing she had a drink already. Katia trusted the barmaid to bring her drink over to her, standing behind the woman, enjoying the way her shadow fell. A grin spread across her face when the girl turned to look at her, recognising the face as a girl she'd met in the Forbidden Forest on one of her little explorations.

"Oh, I'm sorry," she said sweetly, before sitting down at the table instead. "I just thought you looked familiar. Do you remember me?"

Ai immediately recognized the woman and smiled wryly.

"But of course" she acknowledged. "How could I forget?" She sighed. "I wondered if we'd cross paths again"
She smirked and took a sip of her fire whiskey.

"So, what are you doing here?" She asked.

Katia's grin widened as the girl confirmed that she was indeed recognised, resting her chin on the palm of her hand, watching Ai take a sip of her drink. She spared a moment to glance at the counter, seeing Cecily heading over with her drink, before turning back to Ai to respond to the question.

"Do I need a reason to come to the pub?" she asked, smirking lightly. "I know the barmaid. And I enjoy drinking. Lots of alcohol for me. What about you?" she didn't bother looking up as her drink was placed in front of her, taking it in her hands and sipping. "What brings you to this fine establishment today? Ooh, and how is school? You look old enough to have graduated by now, no?"

Ai took another sip of her whiskey.

"Yea, I graduated" she replied. "I'm a teacher now" she sighed. "Not exactly a thrilling job is it?"
She sighed again. "At least it gives me a place to live. Someday I will work with dragons" She glanced
at the faint burns still on her arms. "I know I can handle the burns with that kind of job"

Katia raised her brows at the fact that the girl had become a Professor. She gave a surprisingly comforting smile considering it was her, shrugging slightly. "I'm sure teaching can be thrilling. What are you teaching? Do you enjoy it? Or haven't you started yet? I don't think I've ever thought of being a Professor, I wasn't overly fond of school when I was there. I don't like people telling me what to do."

She really, really did not like people telling her what to do.

"Why do you think you can handle the burns?" she asked, glancing down at Ai's arm as the girl did so. Her mind flashed back to the event at the Ministry, all the fire that Vera had caused. "Or is it just worth it to be with dragons?"

"I'm teaching Astronomy" Ai replied. "It was my favorite subject, but I'll be teaching students not much younger than me. Students that I went to school with" she smiled wryly. "The burns would be worth it to be with dragons but I know I can handle it because I received some very nasty burns at the ministry event" she replied.

Did Katia like Astronomy? She couldn't quite remember. That was the one with the stars, right? "Sounds fascinating," Katia said with a smile, unsure whether or not she was serious. It was forgettable, apparently, but she forgot most things. Memory wasn't her strong point. Nor were theoretical subjects. Was Astronomy a theoretical subject? "So long as you enjoy it, I'm sure it'll be fine. Teaching something you love must be nice. Teaching your former classmates must be weird," she added with a grin.

She gave a sympathising look when the girl said she'd got burns from the ministry. "Oh, you poor thing. I heard that it was horrific, the thing that happened at the Ministry. And with school children, too. Some people have a message that needs to be put across, I suppose, at any cost," her dark eyes glinted for a moment. "It's up to us to decide whether or not the message was important enough for the damage it did."

Ai shrugged.

"One of the guys who attacked cornered me and asked me to join them. I was considering it, but a professor got in the way. Besides, I owed Albus a favor, so I helped him and his friends escape. But instead of staying away and going to Malfoy manor, I went back to the ministry. That's when I got injured. I was looking for the guy who had cornered me, but since I couldn't really see what anyone looked like, it was a lostcause" She smiled wryly. "Being Head Girl, I didn't want the professors to know what I was considering.

Katia's eyes sparkled slightly as Ai said that she was considering joining them. One of the guys who attacked her? That must've been Mitchell. Oh, she would definitely considering joining someone if he was the one who asked her. Then again, looks weren't really a factor when you were clouded in a smoke screen of fog. But she was getting slightly off topic.

"Well, that was very nice of you, to help Albus and his friends escape. I can't imagine that the Professors knowing what you were considering is a good thing at all, no. Probably best to wait till you have another opportunity," she said with a smirk. "I'm sorry to hear you got injured though. I don't like hearing that people I like get injured. Do you have scars?"

Katia did like scars. A lot. She tried not to let anything show on her face as she thought of one boy who she really hoped had scars. Such pretty scars.

"Why are you thinking of joining them, anyway?" she asked, running the tip of her finger over the lip of her glass. If she was going to offer the hand of friendship to Ai, Katia wanted to know she could trust her first.

((OOC: sorry about the long wait! I got really busy and totally forgot I owed you a post D: I made it long to make up for it <3 ))

"I still have burn marks" Ai said rolling up her sleeves to show Katia. She smirked. "The guy who asked me to join was very seductive" She smiled a bit. "I guess I have a lot of reasons for joining. I've been deserted so many times, I want a place I belong. I feel angry and I've long since been fascinated by the dark arts" She shook her head. "I'm tired of being nice all the time"

Katia leant over to see the burn marks, a smile slowly spreading across her face. Weren't they pretty? "You do. Very nice marks," she complimented like she was complimenting the girl's hair. Though marks were a norm in her line of work. She giggled as Ai mentioned about how seductive the man was. "Oh, I bet. I've always found darker things to be seductive. It's the danger in them," her eyes flashed. "Makes you get a little excited."

She reached a hand across the table at Ai's words, a slightly softer smile on her face. It wasn't one she wore often. She could understand the feeling of being deserted. And being angry. "You will belong. We can find this group, for you to belong in," that certainly wouldn't be hard. A smirk crossed over Katia's face. "Find that seductive man for you to join up with, I'm sure. We just need a way to find them," Katia wanted to test the girl. See how much she really wanted it.

"Being nice is boring," Katia advised. "Sometime's it's nicer to be a little mean."

Ai's eyes gleamed with excitement.

"Do you really think they'd accept me?" She asked. "I've always wanted to be accepted" she frowned. "But I wouldn't even begin to know how or where to locate them. They probably have a secret base that's hidden really well" She cocked her head. "Why would you help me?" She asked. "No one helps me since...." she trailed off. She remembered the last thing she had told Marcus was a promise not to physically hurt herself. She had kept it, even after he vanished

Katia felt herself becoming more excited when she saw that Ai was becoming excited. She smiled, nodding confidently as Ai asked if she thought they'd accept her. "Absolutely. If you can prove yourself to them, of course," her smile became more of a smirk. "Perhaps that's where we should start. After all, what better way to find someone than doing something to get their attention."

She was surprised when Ai trailed off after talking about help. Why wouldn't she help Ai? Two people with the same aim were always better as a team than on their own, surely? Though the slight sad tone to the words and face had her feeling a little uncomfortable, not entirely sure how to deal with someone who was feeling upset.

"Because we have the same goal," Katia explained, trying to be sensitive. It wasn't something she was known for. She kind of liked this girl though. She felt like they had a lot in common, after their conversation in the forest. "And I like you. Why would I not help you?"

Ai's face lit up.

"I'm really glad I met you" She said. She thought about what Katia had said and frowned. "What could I do to get thier attention?" She mused. "I don't really have any ideas" She thought for a minute. "If I knew thier goal, maybe..." She turned to Katia. "Do you know?" She asked. "I'm ready and willing, but I'm not much of a planner. I rarely think ahead" She laughed. "I'm never sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing"

Katia grinned as Ai said she was glad they met, thinking about whether or not she was glad. She was. She didn't know many English people here, most of the people she did know where from elsewhere, or her friends who she had travelled here with from Russia. Sure, Ai wasn't English either, but she'd gone to school here, so she was more familiar with the place.

"Their goal?" Katia repeated, though she laughed with Ai when she said she wasn't a planner. "That's fine, their goal is to have a more pure society. To show the Muggles who's boss," she said quietly with a playful smile. "A goal to make things better. Come on, we should go somewhere else to talk about this," she said, glancing around. "And then we can figure out how you catch their attention."

She could test Ai's resolve if they went elsewhere. And if she failed, well, Katia could deal with that.

Ai frowned when Katia told her what the goal was.

"Will it matter to them that I am muggle-born, if I hate my parentage?" She asked. If they hated muggles, would they also hate muggle born witches. Ai hated muggles to, for being shunned because she was a witch, but she wasn't sure the view on muggle-borns. She nodded and finished her firewhiskey. "Where do you want to go?" She asked.

Katia shook her head at the question of being Muggle-born mattering. She was Muggle-born, after all. Though she'd never really questioned it. Perhaps they cared more about how the Muggle-born's thought about their parentage? She wasn't entirely sure. She would have to ask The Lady, or Cecily.

"I don't think they care about your parentage, not if you agree with them on their view on Muggles. Maybe if you were a Muggle-born who didn't agree they'd care, but not if you agreed with their ways. We Muggle-borns are still witches and wizards, and still better than Muggles."

She stood, holding out a hand for Ai, trying to think of where they should go. The forest should do. After all, she was only giving Ai a proposition. The place they first met should do. No one would overhear them in the Forbidden Forest.

Ai accepted the hand without hesitation. She had no idea where they were going, but she trusted Katia. She didn't know why, nut this woman was the first person since Marcus who made her feel alive and happy. Her family never did that. They would pay. Well, her father was dead, but her cousin would pay for stealing her inheritance, her glory all because he was a boy and a muggle. Her father couldn't even look at her because she was a girl, and when he discovered her magic, it just made things worse. She would prove to be the greatest samurai witch the world had ever known and she would show her family that she was no longer that weak pathetic little girl that they trampled all over.

"Let's go" She said firmly.
