It didn't matter that she knew why, or that she wasn't mad at anyone. Sapphire was just frustrated. She'd fought with Diana, and now Onyx. She just wasn't having a good year so far. Even if Kira had helped her figure out what was in her own head, Sapphire just couldn't relax.

Maybe all she needed was some fresh air. With most students preoccupied with breakfast, Sapphire went out to the lake. She picked up a handful of pebbles from the shore and started skipping rocks.

The soft splashing of the rocks against the water relaxed her. She had skipped maybe six when she heard someone approach. "I'm not really in the mood, Onyx." She said without looking. Who else would be out here but her brother?

"Who's Onyx?" Jacob asked, only slightly interested. The lakefront had always been one of Jacob's favorite spots on the grounds, really most of the outdoor spots were, but it was never empty. He'd decided to try anyway, figuring he could probably do with the company even if he was shying away from most people.

Scooping up a rock, Jacob tried to remember the technique he'd been taught ages ago. He side armed it, hearing the soft plunks. Three. Not bad for not having done this in years. "He your boyfriend?" Jacob teased, a half grin appearing on his face as he ducked down to find another suitable skipping rock.

Sapph looked over, a bit relieved to see one of her friends. "Hey Jacob," she greeted. "You don't know?" She was a bit surprised. She thought everyone knew. "You're telling me that obnoxious twat hasn't tried flirting with you yet? Huh."

She skipped another rock, trying to figure out how to tell him. After a moment's consideration, she turned to Jacob and just laid it out. "Onyx is my somewhat clingy, overly friendly twin I just met last year who has no clue what a personal bubble is. You haven't met him yet? He's in your house; he transferred here this year."

Beater

Jacob shook his head, wondering if he should know. The name didn't ting any bells, but his cheeks reddened slightly as she made her next comment. Jacob didn't just go around telling people he was gay even if it wasn't a secret to him. Turning his head to skip another rock (a four!), he quickly ducked down again, taking his time in finding a suitable rock as she spoke. He now knew a lot about Onyx, perhaps too much and he realized it had to be the guy he'd noticed when he'd gone to bed the day before. Jacob was hardly in his room the first few days, not wanting to make small talk with anyone about his break. So he returned to the dorm just in time to hop into bed.

"Wait wait wait. So your parents named you Sapphire and Onyx? Tell me you have a sibling named Emerald" he teased before shrugging. "I'm a busy guy but I think Onyx must be the guy I saw the other night. Dark hair, bright eyes, doesn't smile much?" he asked.

Sapph smiled a bit. "Nah, no Emerald, but I do have a cousin apparently named Amethyst. Can't call her that though or she'll kick you. It's 'Amaya'. Her older sister has it better, she got stuck with 'Ember'."

Sapph sighed as the subject returned to her brother. "Onyx... he never stops smiling unless he thinks I'm mad. I'm not, really, just... frustrated." She threw her next rock and it splashed instead of skipped.

"I can't introduce him to my friends, he flirts with all of them. He never stops hanging on me. Hell, he tried to set me up on a date with a bloke I wanted to be friends with and now I'm pretty certain he thinks I'm just a stupid kid. I just don't know what to do with Onyx." She let out a frustrated sigh and ran a hand through her hair.

She flashed Jacob a wry smile. "Alright, alright, I'm done with the ranting. Sorry bout that, you snuck up at a bad time." She nudged him. "What've you been up to? I haven't seen you much since I ran you over last year." She teased before she resumed her task of skipping rocks across the lake.

Jacob let out a small chuckle before he tossed the next rock. His wrist movement had been off and it simply plunked into the water. The second year frowned at his attempt as he listened to Sapphire complain about her brother. Jacob almost told her that she should be grateful that he wanted to be around her. His own brother didn't and Jacob was still trying to deal with that.

"Oh, nothing much. Tried out for the quidditch team the other day and made it as a starter. I'm still a little shocked " he admitted. He knew he was going to make the team, but he had expected to be an alternate for a few years. Jacob was really thrilled about it though and very proud of himself. He'd worked hard over the break. "Do you want me to make friends with Onyx, keep him busy for you?" he joked as he tossed the rock he'd chosen in the air slightly before whipping it towards the lake.

Sapph let out a delighted laugh as Jacob told her he'd made the Quidditch team as a starter. "Hey, maybe I'll see you out there then," She told him, smiling wide. "I'm an alternate Beater for the Slytherin team." She held up her hand for a high five. "Maybe we can practice together sometime," She offered hopefully. She needed all the help she could get.

When he offered to keep her brother distracted, she let out a laugh. "You could try, if you think you could handle him." She teased. "Onyx is a lot of energy, and I have a hard time keeping up with him." She told Jacob before remembering he had family of his own. Truthfully it was hardly a subject she thought much about. It was only recently that it had become a recurring thing.

"I bet your mum's pleased that you made the team," She tried, deciding that it could either open up the opportunity for Jacob to talk about his family or Quidditch.

Jacob returned the high-five, leaving out the fact that he'd also tried out for a Beater position. She'd find out soon enough. Games were right around the corner, though he was great there was some time before he'd have to take the pitch. Even though Jacob was confident in his abilities, he was still nervous about playing in front of the whole school. He'd sent a letter off to his cousin, Link, asking for some advice. Link never looked nervous about anything and now he was playing professionally.

"I'm a Gryffindor. He's a Gryffindor. I think I'll be ok" Jacob shrugged, wondering how bad this Onyx guy could be. "Yea, she used to play on the school team too, so she's pretty excited" he said, ducking to find another rock. He remained down there, finding a good rock become increasingly more difficult as they continued. "Why didn't your brother start with you?" he asked, unable to contain his curiosity.

Sapph dropped a few of the rocks from her hand, trying to be inconspicuous about giving them to Jacob. "That's cool, what did your mom play as?" She asked, skipping another rock. Five.

"Onyx lives with Uncle James. We were separated when we were born and he stayed with the family." She told him, trying not to sound jealous. "We didn't even know about each other until a girl in my house thought he was me during the last break last year."

She pulled a few more rocks from her bag. "He was going to keep traveling with Uncle James, that's why he wasn't here last year. Uncle James's a photographer for a Muggle travel magazine, but Onyx decided to come here and hang out with me instead." She told Jacob before letting out a little chuckle.

"Onyx is a good guy, I guess." She ran a hand through her hair. "I'm just having a hard time adjusting."

"Beater" he replied, finally finding a rock he was happy with. Jacob was much too distracted awaiting Sapphire's reply to throw it though and he simply kept spinning it around with his fingers. When she finished, Jacob let out a low whistle. "Wow, and I thought my family had a wild history" he muttered. He couldn't imagine suddenly finding out he had an extra sibling. That would be something, though the Kingsleys certainly had enough going on at the moment.

"At least he wants to hang out with you" Jacob nodded. That had to make him a good guy. The second year now knew that not all siblings wanted to stay together. Ever since Aunt Kiera had died, he'd been learning that, first when Link dropped out and now with Noah leaving to another school. Jacob turned and tossed the rock. Five.

Onyx had been out looking for Sapphire -he knew she was still mad about his attempts to set her up, but his heart had been in the right place. Even if she wouldn't tell him how it had gone, he figured it hadn't gone the way he had wanted. That's what drove him out to the edge of school grounds and back again to find her.

On his way back to the school, he spotted her by the lake. Grinning widely, he ran over, popping out through the trees near her. "Sapphy!" He cooed, throwing his arms around her. "I've been looking for you!" He told her cheerily, before finally noticing the boy with her.

"Oh, hello," he flashed the boy a copy grin. "I didn't see you there. Sapphy, aren't you going to introduce me to your cute friend over there?" He grinned, winking playfully at the boy.

Sapphire let out a squeal, smacking at her brother as he appeared out of thin air to hug her. She made a face but didn't move to push him away. She's worked out at least a bit of her anger at him, though she was a bit irritated that he'd snuck up on her.

"Speak of the devil," she muttered as Onyx noticed Jacob. She couldn't help but roll her eyes as he called him cute. "I dunno," she asked warily, "Can you behave?" She shrugged out from under her brother, putting a few feet between them before turning to him. She crossed her arms and looked her brother in the eyes.

Jacon grinned as Onyx appeared right on Sapphire's shoulder as if he'd been there all along. He should've known they were siblings. Seeing them together now, the resemblance was uncanny.

Holding a hand out, manners instilled to early for him to fight them off easily, Jacob tried to take the compliment in stride. "Jacob. We're house mates" he introduced himself, knowing he should have done this days ago and hoping Onyx wouldn't hold it against him that he hadn't.

"Sapphy here was just telling me what a great brother you are" he added with a small sideways glance to the girl.

Onyx grinned impishly at his sister before turning and shaking Jacob's hand. "I've seen you around," He told the boy, kicking himself for not being friendly before. "I should've stopped to say hi. I've just been a bit caught up with my little elf here," He dropped his voice to a conspiratorial whisper. "She's got quite the arm, has she hit you yet?" He asked playfully, letting out a little yelp and dodging the whack he knew was coming from his sister.

Sapphire rolled her eyes as Onyx turned his charms on Jacob. She whacked at him, not caring that she missed. "I swear you're like a lost little puppy," She told Onyx, trying and failing not to smile. "If you start calling him dreamy like you did Oliver and Alkander I'll toss you in the lake." She warned, glancing at Jacob. It was never easy to tell how people would react to Onyx.
