25th-Aug-2006 10:20 am - Distractions Before Dinner
“Dean,” I call to his closed bedroom door, “we’re going to be late.”

“We’ve still got time,” he calls back. Read more...Collapse )
10th-Aug-2006 07:08 pm - One Day at a Time
Once again, I’m consumed with feelings of guilt. Last night I didn’t go out to fight against Lucius Malfoy’s forces attacking Hogsmeade. I was asleep as soon as I had eaten dinner since I’ve been working so hard lately, but I know that even if I’d been awake I wouldn’t have gone to battle. After Peru, my entire body just breaks out in shakes at the mere thought of being part of another battle. I know that one day I will find myself in the middle of a battlefield again, but I’m just not ready yet. Thinking about fighting makes me think about Ernie and my selfish thoughts before he died; thinking about fighting makes me think about almost dying myself. Read more...Collapse )
9th-Jul-2006 12:15 pm - Looking for Help
After leaving Gringotts yesterday with Dean, my mind was racing a mile a minute. The gravity of the situation is completely frightening, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to help us figure things out than Melinda. I owled her right away and insisted that she come meet me for dinner to discuss things. I don’t think she was completely happy with the manner in which I refused to take no for an answer since she had already eaten dinner, but she did meet me. HelpCollapse )
19th-Jun-2006 12:57 am - Settling Back In
After Harry and Ginny’s wedding I spent the night in my old bedroom at Mum and Dad’s house. This morning I had to break the news to Mum that not only was I not returning to India, I was moving back into my flat. She didn’t take the news well. Apparently, she liked the idea that I was letting her have a say in my life again. It did appease her slightly that Parvati has decided not to move back with me for now. I can’t say I blame her, I just feel the need to be independent again.Read more...Collapse )
11th-Jun-2006 11:46 pm - Packing My Bags
I think I’m losing my mind. I went to visit Dean last night, but after seeing how awful he looked I couldn’t manage to face him. Does he know that I’m the one responsible for his kidnapping? If he does, he must me angry with me. I’m so disappointed in myself; I can’t imagine what he thinks.Read more...Collapse )
5th-Jun-2006 12:02 am - Searching for Dean
over shoulder
Alohamora,” I whisper, my wand shaking as I point it at Dean’s door. I was angry when he first stood me up, but after talking to Parvati and Neville I became concerned. What finally moved me to action, however, was finding the note crammed under my door from Dean that said he’d see me at seven on Friday.Read more...Collapse )
2nd-Jun-2006 12:40 am - Sleepless Nights
I’m lying in bed but I can’t sleep. I’ve got too much on my mind.

I’ve taken a lot of time to myself this week. Even though I wasn’t really upset about my break up with Anthony, it took a lot out of me. I had a lot of unresolved feelings for Anthony to sort through, but I think I finally settled them all in the friend category. If only I could say the same for my feelings for Dean.Read more...Collapse )
16th-May-2006 01:44 pm - Breaking In
It’s been such a long weekend. It was completely terrifying to wake up Sunday and discover the mayhem that occurred while I was sleeping. So many people were killed and yet I can’t help being grateful that those I love are still okay. I actually went home without being asked. I submitted myself to Mum’s prying eyes, and just tried to ignore the outside world with my parents. Of course, Mum managed to convince both Dad and me to take Monday off. I didn’t mind too much. I’ve been working so hard lately that I think taking time with the family is good for me. I know Mum could tell I was upset when I agreed to spend the night at their house. I don’t know what’s wrong with me; I’m normally so strong. To see so much pain, suffering, and fear around the country really hit me hard. I think going the one place I felt comfortable being weak was good for me, though, I wasn’t feeling quite as weak anymore when Mum suggested Parvati and I move back in.Read more...Collapse )
12th-May-2006 10:00 pm - Overworked
Sighing, I rest my head in my hands and close my eyes. Everything I’ve been working all day seems to be running together in my memory. I came in to work early this morning to continue looking through deciphering charms. I’m going with Dean this evening to Ernie’s family home to try and break into the notebook again. Then, on my lunch hour I looked over Jessie’s family tree again. I took note of some of the prominent family members, and made notes to myself to look into what is known of Ollivander’s disappearance. All I know currently is that he was assumed dead years ago.Read more...Collapse )
5th-May-2006 07:58 pm - Asking for Help
Anthony and I lay together on his couch after the wonderful dinner we had at Bewitched. I’ll have to ask Ginny to tell her mother how much I enjoyed the food. Even though the ball of guilt is still residing in my stomach, it feels good to simply relax with Anthony. He strokes a hand through my hair absently and I close my eyes.Read more...Collapse )
