As Katie stood in her dorm room staring into the mirror, she really questioned if she had done the right thing. All the other girls in her room, and in her House if she was being honest, were in something far more alluring than she was. Outfits that caught the eye. That flirted without having to use words. That turned heads and had the potential to make one question what was underneath those gowns.
And then there was Katie. The pureblood was used to dolling up for these events after years of training back at the O'Brien household. She knew the expectations that were held.
But she also knew Elliott's costume, even if he didn't know hers yet. To her hormonal, last minute, teenage brain, showing up as someone injured in an accident when he was going as a doctor had a romantic pull to it. Adult Katie would have been embarrassed by her lack of originality, but teenage Katie was just plain ol' nervous to see him again or that he'd want to fix her rather than spend time with the other beauties floating about at the dance.
Still, it was too late now. She had done an impressive job with the fake scrapes and bumps and just enough skin was showing to remind him of the touch of his hands to her waist during their first kiss. During her first kiss ever. One that hadn't been repeated yet, but that she hoped would be part of tonight's festivities.
Merlin, she was nervous.
Putting her hand on the mirror to cover her reflection and try to settle herself, she pushed away and headed out the door. The whole walk down to the ballroom, she tried to train her eyes on the decorations or on the ceiling. On things that wouldn't make her regret her costume choice (or lack thereof).
Once there, she hesitated at the door. Katie normally didn't care about these things enough to care if she was alone or with others. She had a confidence that steadied her. But the idea of having a date was throwing her off a bit, because she didn't know if she was supposed to wait her or go in. She felt a few people walk past her as she stared at the door in indecision. Yes or no? Stay or go?
TAG: Elliott Grace
NOTES: I know we haven't RPed their first kiss yet, but figured safe to say that happens in one of the threads we have going. xo
