Poppy was enjoying the calm before the stress of the second term hit by coming out the the lake to watch the water and do some sketching, maybe even read a book she brought from home before lessons took up all of her free time. But it didn't take long for the at plan to get thrown out the metaphorical window. It was simply too beautiful and too hot to simply sit still. Poppy pilled up her things and unceremoniously took off her well worn boots and socks before wading into the water to cool off. She had rolled up the bottoms of her pants and She stared at her feet, watching as the ripples of the water distorted them. She thought she could almost just make out the shapes of tiny fish in the sunlight. She knew they weren't actually there, but it was just more fun to pretend they were.

"Cannonball!"

From the pier jutting out over the Hogwarts lake, Lysander gave himself a running start, before he dove over the edge and curled up into a ball, landing in the clear water with a heavy splash. He sank like a stone, his backside hitting the pebble floor after a few seconds of descent. The blow was softened by the time he'd reached it, and after releasing his legs, he kicked his way back up to the waters surface. Sander had missed the lake over the holidays, especially with how warm the Summer months had been. He'd spent some time splashing around at Obsidian Harbour and searching for mermaids, but the salt water was nowhere near as pleasant to swim around in.

Breaking the surface of the water, Lysander brushed his damp mess of a fringe from his eyes, and paddled back to the shore to dive in again, this time deeper. By the time it was shallow enough to stand in, he realised he wasn't the only person at the lake, and sloshed his way over to a girl from some of his classes. "Hey! Are you going for a swim?" He asked brightly. From memory she was Alec's friend - or acquaintance? He wasn't sure which, but they'd seemed to know each other while touring the castle.​

Poppy’s daydreaming was finally broken by the sound of someone shouting, followed quickly by a loud splash. She looked up and saw a fellow first year she had met briefly during the castle tour and she couldn’t help but laugh at the way his wet hair hung in his face as he resurfaced in the middle of the lake. He waded through the water towards her before asking a question. She pondered it for a moment and looked back towards her stuff still sitting on the shore and then looked down at the simple pair of shorts and t-shirt she was wearing. Not exactly ideal swimming attire, but also not the worst thing to go swimming in. “Well...I wasn’t planning on it.” she began. “But I could be convinced.” she said with a grin. She waited for just the right time, when he would least expect it, before shouting “I’ll race you!” and taking off for the pier.
