I’d certainly like someone to hang out with while I’m there, so if by some sliver of a chance you don’t find a date, you’ll know where to find me. But I’m sure you’ll get one.
-smiles- Do you not have a date either? Merlin, what is wrong with the boys in this school? You’re absolutely beautiful.
I’d love to hang out with you. How have you been, by the way? Did you have a good summer?
Come with me, Lily! I don’t have a date either. We’ll rock this party.
MARY! -a big smile appears on her face- Oh I’ve missed you so much! How do YOU not have a date? Merlin.
Mary Macdonald, will you do me the honor of accompanying me to this ball?
