Skylar walked into the beautiful Tākarokaro Park, feeling the fresh breeze blow around her, and she smiled as she felt how good it was to be in nature again. She had finally finished all her exams, and she was reasonably happy with how they'd gone, though her Potions one could have definitely gone better. But it was all behind her now, and she was happy to just be able to enjoy the outdoors and have fun for a few hours today, leaving all the stress exams had brought behind her.

She saw a stream and went over to it, sitting on a rock and taking off her shoes to dangle her feet in the water, when she saw a familiar face approach her. She noticed it was one of the Slytherin students from her Defense Against the Dark Arts class, his name began with R or B she was pretty sure. Oh yeah, and he was a twin or a triplet right? She mentally tried to remember what she knew about him from her two classes with him, DADA and Flying. But she couldn't remember anything else before he'd come close enough to be within earshot, so she just said "Hey, how are you?" thinking that being friendly and starting a conversation off like that never did any harm.

Ruben was wondering around the park lost in his own thoughts, he was trying to see what he could do to enjoy the break between the semesters in Hogwarts when he came across the park that wasn't too far from the school grounds.

He found a little stream and walked alongside it always looking at floor, he wished he had his phone and headphones, he had to admit that even though those were muggle things they sure knew how to invent a lot of cool stuff that could keep him entertained for hours without needing any human interaction.

He looked up when he heard a girl's voice talking, probably to him since he was the only one around, he found it a strange coincidence that one of the girls from his DADA classes were there "Hey! I'm good" he said nodding "What about you....?" he said poiting at her and taking a bit more time in the 'you' word hoping that she understood he was waiting for her to say her name.

Skylar was pleased to see the boy answer, it would have been really awkward if she'd said hi and he'd ignored her, but thankfully that didn't happen. "Oh yeah I'm good too, thanks!" she said, before realising she hadn't even properly introduced herself. "I'm Skylar by the way, but you can just call me Sky." she added with a friendly smile. "I remember you from Hogwarts, you're in my DADA and Flying class right? Or at least you were." she finished with a grin, remembering that since it was the end of semester, they'd have completely different subjects next term. She wondered what they'd be like, and whether or not they'd actually be as much fun as some of the ones this semester had been.

Ruben gave the girl a smile "I'm Ruben, no cool nickname unless you wanna call ke Ben or something" he said chuckling a bit.
He gave a relieved smile "Yeah! Really loved that, DADA is my favourite class from everything I had this semester. What about you? What did you like and what are you most looking forward in the next semester?" he said taking a sit next to her but not putting his feet in the water like Sky. He was going to aske her what made her decide to visit the park but he decided to wait for her to answer all the questions he had just thrown her firsts.

"What?! How on earth is Defense Against the Dark Arts your favourite class?!" Skylar burst out before she could stop herself. "Professor Styx is terrifying!" she added, allowing herself to laugh a bit, mostly out of sheer relief that the class was over. Sure, the content had been interesting, but the Professor was incredibly intimidating and there was something off about him that she couldn't quite place, but she knew she didn't like it.

Deciding to answer the other two questions Ruben asked, she replied with "well, I really liked Flying since it's obviously just heaps of fun, but I'm definitely the best at Charms out of all the classes I take." she finished with a proud smile, thinking about how much fun it had been. "As for next semester, I don't actually know. What are the classes we're taking again? I've completely forgotten!" she said with a laugh.

Ruben laughed, this girl probably had been traumatised by Professor Styx "Well considering he is my Head of House I need to get used to his mood. Besides a subject is more than the teacher who teaches it and I find the Dark Arts very interesting to study." he said, he was sure if he was totally clear with the last part so he decide to clear any doubts "Not that I would practice the Dark Arts, I just like the knowledge" he said giving her a smile and hoping that the girl would think he is either a nerd or a weirdo.

Ruben was excited by hearing the word charms "I'm really excited for those classes". Ruben shrugged his shoulders, he didn't knew what classes she was going to take next semester, he only knew his "Well next semester I'm taking Herbology, Charms, Transfiguration and Potions." he said hoping to help the girl but then he remembered something "Considering I had History of Magic and Astronomy this semester and you weren't there it's more than certain that you'll have those two next semester at least."

Skylar felt her cheeks flush a bit as she realised it was probably dumb to hate the subject due to the teacher, but she still felt pretty justified in her reasoning for not liking the subject. "Well, I still think the type of teacher you get can make a pretty big impact on how much you like the subject! Like for example my Potions Professor was incredibly boring, so I don't really like the subject, whereas my Charms Professor was amazing and heaps of fun, so I guess I liked the subject more." she finished with a grin, the thought of Charms always made her happier.

She laughed as Ruben clarified on what he meant by liking the knowledge of Dark Arts, even though she obviously hadn't thought he meant it in the 'evil wizard ready to take over the world' kind of way. But now the fact that he had to explain himself made a flicker of doubt cross her mind, but she quickly dismissed it, thinking it was probably just her unhealthy prejudice against Slytherins, though they weren't all bad, as she'd learned throughout her first semester with them.

As the conversation turned back to subjects she smiled as Ruben said how excited he was for certain classes. "Oh I'm sure you'll love Charms! Not so sure about Potions though..." she said with a laugh, remembering her previous experience with it. "Oh yeah, that'll be cool!" she said as he suggested which two subjects she might have. She had to admit she wasn't all too thrilled with History of Magic, thinking it'd probably be boring, but she especially would have to learn it due to being a Muggleborn. But at least Astronomy sounded cool, she loved the outdoors and seeing as the stars and solar system were part of that, she hoped she'd like that class too. "I think I'll probably be taking Transfiguration and Herbology as well, since those are the other two you said which I haven't taken yet so it makes sense for me to take them." she added, thinking it was probably logical enough reasoning. "It's cool how we eventually got to find out which subjects I'm taking though! Almost like an elimination game I suppose!" she said with a chuckle as she realised she'd just found out what subjects she'd be taking next semester, through teamwork and process of elimination.

Ruben had to agree with that, a teacher was no reason to hate a subject but they had a pretty huge impact on how we learn and if they make it fun, students are more prone to like their subject. He got excited when the girl talked about the Charms Professor since this was one of the subjects he was most looking forward too next semester. "Did you brew any potions? Was it a poison? Maybe sleep potion?" he said trying to figure out how could the potion classes be so boring.

As Sky told him she was have Transfiguration and Herbology he presumed that she would be on his classes too "Kinda excited for Transfiguration. Not very into Herbology to be honest but...it might surprise me, History of Magic certainly did. We went to the Smithsonian! A museum in Washington D.C." he said excitedly remembering about the geodes and gems exhibition he visited and where he saw tons of minerals and jewellery.

Ruben laughed, it was certainly funny to guess since he also didn't knew what she took or didn't took besides DADA and Flying. He didn't knew about her but he was more ecited about the second semester than the first.

As Ruben asked about what they did in Potions class Skylar had to stifle a laugh, he seemed so excited, but if he got the same Professor as her... his excitement would probably leave him very soon. Or maybe it was just her not liking the subject in general... “Well... I won’t spoil it for you but all I’ll say is it was a lot less ‘hands on’ than you might think it’ll be.” She said, not wanting to spoil the details, but also not wanting her new friend to go into it expecting something amazing, only to be disappointed.

“Really?! I’m not excited for Transfiguration AT ALL. Or Herbology for that matter. I’m really bad at keeping plants alive...” she trailed off with a laugh remembering how back on the farm it was always her brother tending to the plants, and she looked after the animals instead. As Ruben told her about what they did in History of Magic, Skylar did have to say it sounded slightly more interesting, but not by much.

Deciding they were probably done with the conversation about subjects, Skylar suggested, “hey, do you want to go walk through the park? My feet are freezing!” She laughed as she pulled her feet out of the water, shaking them dry before putting her shoes back on. It was nice by the stream, but she’d just seen a large family with kids come near them, and she had no doubt that soon enough there’d be so much noise and shouts of laughter that she’d barely be able to hear Ruben.

Ruben chuckled when Skylar said she was bad at keeping plants alive, hopefully they didn't need to keep any plant alive and they would just need to care for it during class time.
He nodded "Yeah, sure" he said getting up and looking at the river. That was exactly why he didn't touch the water, he is more sensible than most people. When Ruben goes to the beach or to a pool he usually doesn't stay in the water for more than ten minutes as he starts to shake uncontrollably due to the cold. People often told him to move or swim so he's get warm but that didn't work. Putting his feet on the river wasn't exactly the same as putting the whole body in the water but it had the same effect on him.
Sky did seem to have a great sense of opportunity as a family had just arrived and the Slytherin boy was thankful to leave. Young kids usually mean he'd get wet and again, he would become a human block of ice if he got wet "So you are not going home for the holiday break?" he asked while walking alongside with the girl, that he presumed to be a Gryffindor, "By the way, do you have somewhere where you wanna go?" he added as they were walking but he didn't exactly knew where they were going.
