adding fuel to the sparks
Another School Year, Another ...
Aramis was in the cathedral during his free class playing music that had a bit of a romantic overture to it as it was directly reflecting his mood and feelings. he had found himself thinking about Satele more and more lately and that seemed to make him feel more at peace and very happy.
Walking into the Cathedral, Satele was happy to hear Aramis playing. Ever since they had agreed on a relationship, Satele just felt different some how. She couldn't explain or describe how she felt, she just knew that it was different. Making her way up to where Aramis sat, She quietly found somewhere to stand and wait for him to finish his song
Aramis winked at Satele when she walked in and after finishing the song he was playing placed the flute down long enough for him to give her a hug and kiss. He was still getting use to the whole relationship aspect but was finding that it was most enjoyable. He was also glad that his little sister was very accepting of it.
"How often do you come here?" Satele asked, reaching into her shoulder bag, "I mean, every time I look for you outside of class or lights out you seem to be here"
"I think it's safe to say that this is my secret permanent home here at Hogwarts." Aramis replied fondly to her.
"So noone ever wonders why you don't turn up in the dorms at night?" Satele asked, sitting down beside him
"The secret to that is waiting until after the lights out check is done then sneak out. and with the martial arts training i have i am pretty light on my feet." Aramis replied as he took a single step closer to Satele.
Satele nodded, "I guess that would work, but anyway I have something to show you" she said, pulling out a small blue wooden instrument. It was almost teardrop shop but with a mouth piece projecting out from one side
"ah." Aramis smiled as he looked at it. "shall we make some beautiful music together?" he asked her cheerfully as he retrieved his flute.
"Actually, I have to be careful what music I play with this. This was a gift from my mother who enchanted it with older magic. If I play certain music styles or songs, I can make people sleepy, happy, dance, I'm sure you get the picture"
aramis smiled. "so you pick the tune and i'll join in" he said.
Thinking it through, Satele decided to play something slow that wouldn't trigger a magic spell, Scarborough fair.
Aramis recognised the song and smiled as he joined in with her and took a single step closer to her before offsetting himself slightly to her right.
Closing her eyes, Satele just concentrated on the song she was playing and listening to how Aramis was playing so as to not mess up the pace.
Aramis looked at her and decided to put a bit more emotion into the music to reflect his feelings for her.
Hearing the change, Satele stopped playing and looked at Aramis. Of course she knew that it took emotion to make a song beautiful, but changing moods halfway through a song was a little strange, at least to her.
Aramis winked at her and finished the song and then with great emotion started to play Fur Elise.
Listening to the song, Satele thought she could bring in a larger audience. Taking a few breaths to concentrate, she started to play another tune, but this time her ocarina started to glow a little with an orange hue. After a few minuets of playing, a few small birds flew in and landed at the edge of the platform they were on.
Aramis smiled as he kept playing and seamlessly transitioned from Fur Elise to a song that still had great emotion behind it. (Everything I Do (I do it for you) by Bryan Adams).
"Gee, I get the feeling you're trying to tell me something. Who is this girl you're in love with? I'll hunt her down"
Aramis stopped playing and pulled Satele in really close, wrapping his arms around her waist while kissing her directly on the lips. "you're the one I love." he said with a smile and a bit of blushed cheeks.
Satele smiled, "well of course I know that, I was just checking"
"Trust me... I would never do something as dishonorable or stupid as to cheat on you." he reassured her as he caressed the side of her face gently with his hand.
"Oh I know, and I would never intentionally cheat on you. Though I can't control the actions of others"
"any man that touches you the way i do gets to spend 6 months in a full body cast, breathing and eating from tubes." Aramis stated in a cute but very possessive manner.
"You know that's not what I mean. They don't have to touch me to make me do something I don't want to. Like hurt you for instance"
"in that event i'll find out who did that to you and i'll end them." Aramis said softly.
Satele smiled warmly, "and i would never stop to save you either" she replied, grabbing hold of one of his hands
Aramis smiled as he pulled Satele in against him and wrapped an arm around her waist while touching his forehead to hers and simply enjoyed the feeling of being in such close contact with her. "I'll always protect you." he whispered very softly.
"Don't make a girl a promise if you can't keep it"
"I never make a promise if i have any doubts about being able to keep it." Aramis replied as he slowly guided them over to one of the pue's and lifted satele up into his arms before sitting down only to place her on his lap with his arms around her waist. "I wish we could share dorms. it'd be nice to be able to have her beside me as i sleep." he thought.
"Don't you think this is the wrong place for this sort of thing?" Satele said, looking around them, "this seems like holy ground or something""
"i have no intentions of doing anything else but holding you in my arms.. but if you would feel better we can always go to the room of requirement and continue in there." Aramis replied with a very soft but warm smile on his face. "and if you want more to happen then just being close like this and periodically kissing then you need only say so." he added in a soft whisper.
"I think this would be enough for now" Satele said, resting her head on his shoulder
Aramis instinctively just gently rubbed Satele's back with one of his hands and smiled softly as he rested his head against hers.
