Fall Into These Arms

Post by Guest on Tue Mar 11, 2014 9:44 pm

Paige loved being girly and the annual Valentine's Day Dance that was open to sixth and seventh years gave her a great excuse to show off her girly side. It gave her a chance to bond with her room mate as they prepared for their first dance, they helped each other do their hair and pick out the best jewelry to go with their dress and what not. Paige was finally ready with all of her long, blonde hair pulled to one side of her head with plenty of curls giving it a fancy look. She had bought her dress that summer, a beautiful knee length white dress with a layered, frilly white bottom and matching white heels. With her makeup finished she was finally ready to head down to the hall, and boy was she excited.

The excited teen was more than ready to jump into the dance festivities, she had a personal goal to make sure she saw each of her friends there, even if it wasn't for a dance and just them talking. Paige wasted no time in finding her friends, she had shared a dance with Caleb, and had talked with Adela already, she was sure there was nothing that could ruin her mood at this point.

She grabbed a glass of punch and stood near an empty table when she spotted another one of her friends. Finishing the last of her punch she placed the glass on the table and quickly made her way through the crowd where she had seen her friend go a moment ago. Finally she spotted the tall teen ahead of her, sliding past one more person she grabbed his arm and smiled. "Quinn! Are you having fun? You look great in those dress robes too." She said excitedly.

Quinn had finished getting a pep talk from Caleb only to chicken out once again and danced with Marie-Laure instead. At this rate, he was never going to get his chance to talk to Paige and the butterflies that infested his stomach made him start to believe that maybe that wasn't such a bad thing. He'd probably end up saying something really dumb, once he got a dance with her, then would crush all her pretty toes because he was a horrible dancer even when he wasn't nervous.

He was perfectly content with standing by the refreshments table and eating an assortment of chocolate when the person he had been avoiding all night made her way over and took his arm. Through a look of surprise, he chewed the chocolate in his mouth before swallowing. "P-Paige," He replied, trying to not sound disappointed, though he did sound off. There was no escaping now, he thought to himself as she dragged him onto the dance floor.

His face blushed as she complimented his robes. "Thanks my mom picked them out," he replied and then looked down at her white dress. She looked so pretty and angelic and happy in her dress and he absolutely loved it. "Your dress is perfect for you," He started. "It's so cheerful and pretty, just like, uhhh," He stuttered as his face darkened even more. He averted his gaze for a moment and then took a deep breath. He could do this. He had to do this. "Hey, uhhh, Paige. There's something I need to tell you..." He cut off and felt his heart pound in his chest as he waited for her attention.

Paige was so happy to have found another one of her friends, however when she got his attention he sounded off. He almost sounded a bit unhappy to see her, though she had no idea why he would sound that way, maybe she was just hearing things. She brushed it off as just hearing it weirdly over the noise in the room and preceded to gently tug Quinn towards the dance floor. She took his hand in both of hers which she held behind her back as she slowly made her way to the middle of the grand hall, she assumed if he didn't want to dance he would let her know. Once they were near the dance floor she turned back around to face Quinn with an ever cheerful smile. "Thanks, I thought it was perfect as well." She thanked him for his compliment of her dress, she was glad he liked it.

Paige was unsure on how to start a dance, she knew how to dance as Xavior had taught her back when they were much closer, but she couldn't remember how one started to dance so she ended up just standing there. She looked up at Quinn who seemed different than usual, much like earlier when she thought he sounded off she was sure there was something different. She had been about to ask him if he was alright when he suddenly spoke up, though she didn't exactly expect him to say what he did. "Oh, okay what is Quinn, you can tell me anything." She assured him with a soft smile looking up at him exactingly.

His mind wasn't entirely there with his person as he went between moving into dance position to back to normal and back to dancing a few times before he decided to just quit it. He'd probably trip all over the place if he told Paige while they were dancing anyway and at least this way he could look her in the eye instead of his eyes fixed on his feet.

His heart raced as she told him he could go on and he felt his mouth go completely dry. You can do this, Quinn! You play quidditch! You're a man! You can ask a pretty girl out! No big deal! He tried to pep talk himself, but it was to no avail and yet he was standing there awkwardly not saying anything with Paige staring at him. "I, uhhhh, I just wanted to...Ummmm, y'know, I think..." He stuttered and played with the sleeves of his dress robes and then took a deep breath. His eyes closed as he decided he was just going to go for it. "Paige, I really like-" He opened his eyes and then suddenly chickened out and said the first thing that came to his mind. "Peaches. I really like peaches, okay?" He felt sick as the realization of how he had just ruined the opportune moment entered his mind. He wanted to run away and hide and never see Paige again.

Something kept him there, though, and as his face grew redder and redder, he decided he needed a cover up for it. Around him, people were dancing and he figured they ought to do the same. "Hey so it's a dance...so do you wanna dance?" He questioned and didn't wait for an answer. He took her hands in his, placing one of them on his shoulder, and then rested his hand on the small of her back and started moving them around to the beat of the song.

There was definitely something off about Quinn today, it wasn't even the constant stuttering he was doing, he did that sometimes before, but he seemed... Paige couldn't exactly find a word to describe how Quinn was acting, unhappy kind of, scared maybe, nervous possibly. Whatever it was she didn't like seeing him like this and she started to think of anyway that she could help him be his usual happy self again. She couldn't think of anything and just ended up looking up at her friend, he closed his eyes before saying he really liked something but paused. Her breath caught a moment when she thought she was going to say he really liked her but when he quickly exclaimed he really liked peaches instead she breathed out almost disappointingly. She chastised herself for thinking that he was going to say her, of course he wasn't going to say that they were friends. Paige wasn't even sure why that was the first thing she had thought of but she quickly brushed of the ridiculous idea. "Yeah, uhh peaches are good." She said confused as to why that was something he felt the need to tell her before they could have their dance, but she wasn't going to question it.

She perked back up and lost her look of confusion when Quinn asked her to dance since they were at a dance. "Yes let us dance." She said with a smile as he placed her hand on his shoulder and started the dance. She moved her feet the way Xavior had taught her and smiled up at Quinn. She noticed that he didn't seem very confident with their dance and she wanted to reassure him that dancing was nothing to be worried about. "You know if you don't think about it too much dancing isn't that hard." Paige told him. "Also don't watch your feet, okay keep your eyes on me not you feet." She said looking into his blue eyes with a smile.

At that point, he wasn't really listening. She was speaking words, instructing him on how to dance, but his eyes fell to his feet anyway and watched for a moment until she told him to look at her. Slowly he lifted his eyes to meet hers, and when they did, roses bloomed on his cheeks and his foot stepped right on Paige's. "Oh! I'm so sorry!" He immediately lifted the weight from her foot, only to trip over his other foot into a table, knocking a punchbowl over and onto his blue robes. He felt the heat rise in his face as he stumbled back to his feet. No doubt he caught a lot of attention, but the only person he was looking at was Paige. He doubted she still wanted to dance with him after he made a spectacle out of himself like that. Who would want to be seen with a fool like him?

Feeling that his time there was running short, he knew he needed to split soon. He'd only cause more trouble if he stayed, though the fact that he had already embarrassed himself greatly gave him a courage he lacked before. He was already going to run out of there, so he'd might as well do what he came there for in the first place before going.

His feet moved him closer to Paige, his eyes not moving from her face. He paused for a moment, standing in front of her, dripping in punch and then spoke. "Paige, I-I think you're the prettiest girl in school and I like you a lot," He admitted and before he turned heel and ran towards the door, he leaned down to her height and pressed a kiss to her lips.

Paige had no idea how to teach someone how to dance, she had only even been the student not the teacher but she didn't think her slight instructions for Quinn were that bad. However the moment she was finally able to get her friend to look up from his feet he stepped on one of hers, he quickly apologized but her smile didn't fade, "Don't worry about it." She said reassuringly before Quinn tripped over himself and ending up backing himself into a table behind them, she tried to help steady him but it was no good and he fell into the punch bowl.

If she had thought her friend looked unhappy before he looked even more upset now, not that she could blame him. She wanted to go to him and help him but she found herself froze to the spot. Quinn started walking back towards her looking like he had something to say, she wasn't sure what it could be or what she should say or do right now so she stayed where she was. She didn't expect him to say or do what he did next, especially in this situation after just falling into the punch. He told her he thought she was the prettiest girl in the school and he likes her a lot, and before she could say anything he pressed a kiss to her lips. She barely got a second to return the kiss before Quinn was gone. Paige blinked a few times to bring herself back to the situation before she could take off after her friend before he got out of the hall.

Once she caught up to him, which she was worried was impossible with her shorter legs and high heels, she grabbed his hand and made him stop. Without saying anything she instantly started pulling him towards a table near the corner of the room. Channeling the side of her that helped so much in quidditch she brought her friend over to the table and made him sit on the bench. She reached into a secret pocket she had had her mother sew into her dress and pulled out her wand, since starting school she refused to go anywhere without it. Without saying anything to Quinn she pointed her wand at the punch that was soaking his robes and said "tergeo" before watching it dry up and become spotless. She had learned that spell three years ago and used it more times than she could count, for who doesn't spill stuff a lot?

Once Quinn's robes were clean once more and her wand was back in the secret pocket in her dress she stood in front of the bench she had sat him on. "How can you drop a bomb like that and run?" She asked making sure her tone was not mean but strong. "You know you were supposed to give me a chance to enjoy hearing those words, and you were supposed to give me a chance to enjoy the bliss from your kiss, and above all you were supposed to give me a chance to tell you that I really like you too, inability to dance and all. Then we would've smiled from the happiness of finding that we both feel the same way and we would've shared another kiss." She said her voice getting soft as she talked, she had slowly walked closer as well until she stood right in front of him where she leaned down to press a kiss to his lips. It was going to be a short on but she found it harder to break away for a few moments, finally she pulled back and gave him a small smile. "And that was the perfect moment you just ruined."

Somehow Paige had managed to catch up with him and stopped him. After that, he hardly needed any force to follow her, but instead let his arm lay limp as she guided them to table, his head bowed in embarrassment from everything that had just commenced and feared what was to come.

Paige lead him to a seat, which he sat down in and avoided eye contact as she cleaned his shirt without uttering a word besides the incantation. He felt like she was about to yell at him for what he had done and he wanted nothing more than to disappear. "Paige I-I'm so sorry!" He said, just before she started speaking. Like he had expected, she was upset with him and complained about his actions.

His eyes remained on his hands as he felt he truly messed things up until he noticed something odd about the way she criticized him. "Huh? Wait, you like me?" He questioned, as if it wasn't clear. He smiled out of relief, forgetting that his poor actions made the whole thing entirely unromantic and just beamed at the girl he adored. She actually likes me!

Suddenly they were kissing again and Quinn held onto her face with his hand as their lips moved together. He didn't care that he had made a complete fool out of himself. The fact that Paige returned his affections was good enough for him to consider the moment perfect. However, it occurred to him that the night was still going and he still had time to salvage it. Standing up suddenly, he announced, " Wait! Let me try that again!"

He walked away from the table, leaving Paige there, and snatched a bouquet of roses from a nearby table, hiding them behind his back as if she wouldn't have noticed. Then he approached her again, trying to conceal the ever growing smile on his face, and took a bow. "M'lady, you are the fairest in the land of Beauxbatons Academy and my affections for thee run deep," He giggled at his own attempt at playing a Romeo-like figure, just not as dead. "Would you honor me with being my girlfriend?" He asked and handed her the roses he stole.

Paige had been very unsure about using the approach she had used since she was afraid it would come out sounding a lot meaner than she meant it. Thankfully it seemed Quinn understood that she wasn't yelling at him or anything of the sort. She smiled when he asked if she liked him as if she hadn't made it clear a moment ago, but to make it even clearer she followed it up with a kiss. She had planned it to be very long but once Quinn returned it and even went as far as to hold her face in his hands she found it very difficult to break the kiss. When she finally pulled back she simply smiled, until Quinn said something about trying again and then walking off. She stood there for a moment confused before she watched where he went and then her smile returned.

Paige giggled a bit when the blue haired teen held out a bouquet of roses and started talking like the people of old. She smiled uncontrollably at his words they sounded so fancy and she thought it was sweet the way he was trying to make up for running away a moment ago. She took the roses he offered her before nodding with a sweet smile. "I would be honored." Paige told him softly before standing on her tiptoes to place another soft his to his lips.
