Chapter 10

"Hey Rowlanda?" Calleigh hollered as she ran to catch up with her older friend. "Yes Calleigh," she responded. "Hey um I was wondering if you had noticed that the Cuban man that came with the team, Eric Delko had eyes for you?" "He does, are you serious he's sooo hot!" Rowlanda squealed in delight. "yeah he really likes you but didn't know if you had even noticed him." "Yeah me and Minnie and Poppy where talking about him last night, they told me I should go for it but I didn't even know his name." "well you should defiantly go for it ask him to go to dinner at the three broomsticks or somethin, but go for it. "thanks Call."

Horatio walked up behind Calleigh and wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her neck softly. "Are you playing matchmaker with my team?" he asked "hum why yes I am." She responded turning around so she was facing her new lover and kissed a trail down his jaw. All of a sudden horatio tensed and got really serious and said "Calleigh Hun do you really think this is a good idea?" "I mean when we leave… they'll all be heartbroken." Calleigh sighed and said "don't worry H love a ways finds a way. "oh beautiful did Albus tell you they were having a start-of-term ball this year?" "yeah tomorrow night right?" "yeah I was thinking if you wanted we could go together and tell everyone." "I'd love to H." Calleigh said smiling.

Severus was walking around looking for some students to terrorize during his free period when he literally ran into Yelina, sufficiently knocking her to the ground. "Oh My Gosh Yelina I am sooo sorry." He said kneeling down to help her back on to her feet "are you ok?" he asked sounding concerned. "I'm fine Severus." She replied kindly. "Hey I was wondering, would you like to go to dinner with me tonight, at the Three Broomsticks?" he asked her smoothly. "I would love to Severus." She replied. "Ok um… so I'll meet you outside your rooms at 6:30 then alright?" he asked causing her to nod, then she asked "Severus, would you like to join me for a walk around the grounds?" He smiled and happily excepted the invitation offering her his arm.

"Yelina, I don't know if you heard or not but Albus is planning a ball tomorrow night to celebrate the start of term, and … well I was hoping that you might… well that you might accompany me? " Severus nervously said causing Yelina to smile and nod, "I would love to Severus." By now they were out at the black lake, Severus, having felt Yelina shudder in the cold, wrapped an arm around her waist and pull her close to him gently.
