Natalya entered the dining hall clutching her bag tightly as she looked around at the students in the dining hall. They were all acting like a bunch of immature primates stuffing food in their faces and making a great amount of noise. This made Natalya uncomfortable and wince in a mild agony. She was hesitant to approach any of the students even though Mistress demanded she socialize....but she never said when.


James saw Natalya and smiled. She was always so quiet and reserved. He slid over a little bit to make room on the bench beside him.

Natalya noted the boy named James slide down the bench and look over at her as if to make a spot for her to sit. She shyly walked over bowing her head down careful not to make eye contact and sat down beside him.

James smiled at Natalya, "Glad to see you out and about, the more the merrier."

"Thank you." she replied simply bowing to him with her head.

"Not a problem, Natalya. You should join us more often. You might just have some fun." James said with a smile.

"Yes." She nodded. "That would be nice."

Reginald just sat there listening to the conversations within ear shot. He let out a quiet sigh as he looked over to Jennifer and then around again. He was looking for something specific. Rasputin, for starters. That chatty reptile never missed a free meal. He hadn't see him since the incident in the forest and he was worried. It was rare for him to see less of Rasputin.

Second, Reg was looking for any sign of his father. His annoying white ravens in a window or his father himself. He still hadn't gotten to the mystery of how he and Jen's names ended up in the Goblet, but he was still convinced his father played a hand in it somehow.

"What is it?" Jen asked quietly.

Victor sat quietly at a corner of the Slytherin table. Most students have kept their distance from him, but those who didn't soon learned not to come closer. He appreciated his privacy, especially on days like this. He was running dangerously low on Blood-Flavored Lollipops and he felt his vampire side slowly creeping up behind him. Victor slowly pulled out a lollipop from his pocket and removed the plastic around it. He slouches a bit in his seat as he popped it into his mouth and closed his eyes, taking in the hypnotic taste.

Evan slipped in late to breakfast grabbing only a cup of tea and some toast and bacon, Evan slumped onto a chair he was particularly tired, Prefect duties have been taking there toll with all the extra patrols late at night and keeping an eye on the Gryffindor Champions, Evan would be relived when the tournament was finely at an end. He had hardly seen Nathan the last few days, bloody hell, He had hardly seen anyone except in passing. It had been Class, Study, Patrol and Sleep no time to socialize at all. Evan hoped things would soon return to normal.

When breakfast was nearing an end, Maggie stood. "May I have your attention please?" She waited for the chatter to die down. "As you all know, the Beauxbatons carriage left early this morning. They have forfeited the competition. That does not mean the tournament is over. There is still one challenge left. In addition, classes will continue as usual. You are all expected to be ready for your final exams."

Maxwell felt something in the pit of his stomach; aside from the heavy breakfast he ate knowing he would need the reserves. The book end of it he as great at, the Practicals are what got him. He had magic in his being; just his hand/wand coordination were not up to the task sometimes. He had muddle through to this point; he did well on exams and managed to keep a higher grade point average.

"Finals...." He groaned.

Kairi never really minded exams and such, it was just some subjects that she was rather nervous potions. She quietly got up with nods to her Hufflepuff friends along the way. Kairi looked with a fondness over to the Gryffindor table. To see Robin again before Finals might just be a sign of good luck to come.
