Alecto let a sigh escape her lips. Life would be easier if things were just always handed directly to you. In this instance, especially. Knowing Kate, she would be impatient and expect to find the firewhiskey right away. And why should she not? In the notes they had exchanged during class, it sounded as if it would be an easy find. Alecto had half expected to not have any troubles, but unfortunately, this was not going quite as planned. If only the room were not so damn big- it would be much easier to find things. Next time, she would have to just bring her own alcohol. It wasn't that hard to smuggle into the castle and would make things far less complicated. Alecto opened another dusty cabinet (only to find it empty) when she heard her name being called from behind. Instinctively, she turned around and at first saw no one. After a moment though, her friend appeared in the distance. "Took you long enough,"
Alecto greeted teasingly. Actually, Katherine had only been a minute or two later than her. But, small details of that nature were too minor to matter. Since she had beat rightfully beat her to the Room of Requirement, it was worth pointing out. Just for some friendly banter, really.<p>
Of course, the first thing that Katherine inquired about was the firewhiskey. That was to be expected. "No, but I'll get to it soon."
Alecto opened another storage container, but to no luck. Oh well, they would find it eventually. This still beat being in class. Even if there was no chance of being caught at this point, the exhilaration of breaking the rules flooded through her veins. It was not as if acting out was anything new for Alecto, but she still enjoyed the adrenaline that doing something she was not supposed to gave her. It reminded her that in the end, she was the one in control of her destiny. No matter how much other people (her mother, in particular) wanted to control or make decisions for her, in the end, it was still Alecto's life to live or screw up. And she was sure as hell going to live it right, no matter what everyone else said. Perhaps that was why she liked ignoring rules so much. Besides that, it was often just fun. If you listened to what everyone told you all of the time, life would be quite boring.<p>
Alecto glanced up and watched her blonde friend lean against a book shelf, obviously not looking thrilled. From the sounds of it, Katherine wanted the room to take on a much different appearance. Although Alecto wouldn't admit it, she actually liked the old, dusty aspect of this location. It was comforting to sit in the same area that so many great witches and wizards before her had also stepped through. The room held bundles of evidence of the generations before her. Who knew what evil plots or romantic flings had occurred in this very place years ago- even before they had been alive. In Alecto's opinion, it was interesting. The room may not smell the best, but it held more secrets than somewhere more luxurious would. Still, she could not admit this. People knew Alecto as the popular, social butterfly. She was sometimes cold-hearted, sometimes flirtatious, but never sentimental. Who only knew what people would think if they knew that she appreciated some ancient things. It was not a bad quality really, just... too deep down in her personality than she was willing to reveal to just anyone- even if she was close to Kate. So instead, she simply shrugged and replied with, "It was the first thing that came to my mind."
Looking away, Alecto started canvassing through more objects in search of the firewhiskey. She opened one final nearby cabinet and to her delight saw a full bottle surrounded by tall glasses. She took it out and grabbed two of glasses, before setting them on a nearby table. "Doesn't matter now, I found it!"
She announced with a smile. Picking up the bottle again, Alecto unscrewed the cap and filled both glasses nearly to the rim. She handed one to Kate before taking the second for herself. Gosh, after this week she could certainly use some alcohol to relax. She had been on edge lately (for no apparent reason) and it would be nice to finally have something to help her let loose and calm down. Even better, she could spend some time with her friend. She lifted the glass into the air and locked eyes with Katherine. "Here's to... a much better conclusion to a boring day."
