Pat pushed open the door to the armor room and sighed. Two-Bit was with his sister, something he regretted but Pam told him that if he didn't get some time to himself that she'd hex him. She'd been bugging him lately, it was beginning to get weird.

Rubbing his eyes, he sat down on a bench. Why he decided to sit on a bench in a room full of sharp pointy objects was beyond him but he just wanted to be somewhere that people didn't normally go in.

"When'd life get so complicated?" he muttered to himself before getting up to look out the window. He wanted to go outside but there was just something about the lake that he hated now more than ever. Hearing the door creak, he whirled around.

"Sorry," he said to the person coming in. "I can go if you want privacy."

Keeping to herself was something that Alliana had been doing her best at as the weeks had dragged on since her break-up with Pat. Eventually she'd gotten up out of bed and tried to get back to her familiar and usual routine, but that had only been something she'd forced upon herself. After her one in the morning break down with Buddy, she'd known from there on out that things needed to change. Break-ups happened, people's feelings changed, and life had to go on. She was slowly (but almost unwillingly) beginning to accept it.

Being alone was never easy for her, seeing as she was always quite the friendly person. Lately though, she didn't mind being closed off in her own little world while reality whipped on by her. Maybe that was the reason why she was blindly wandering the hallways of Hogwarts looking for something to do, anything that would exclude her from being around people. For the time being, she was just interested in being alone. Where was a place that people rarely visited?

Appearing at her destination a couple of minutes later, she sighed as she reached out to open the door. She supposed she could have made a slightly more better choice then the armour room, but it would just have to do. It was better then sitting in her dorm-room doing absolutely nothing. Although she certainly got the shock of her life when she realized she wasn't alone in the room - especially when she saw who the person was.

All at once she could feel the color draining from her face, her heart leaping into her throat, and her stomach lurching dangerously. Pat. She hadn't seen him since the break-up, since the fighting... "Oh, I uh.." She looked down, struggling with her words and with the sudden internal conflict of emotions. "No. It's okay, I'll leave." She barely waited for an answer before she was turning to go. Why was she suddenly so eager to disappear?

Pat's eyes widened and his face flushed a little when Alli walked through that door. He hadn't seen her since the break up and was suddenly wishing he hadn't left his common room. She was probably with Buddy now anyway.

He never remembered feeling this awkward around Alli, even when he had a crush on her. Times changed though, even if he wished they didn't.

"No," he said when Alli turned to leave. "You can stay."

Though he was sure that there was to be an awkward silence if they both stayed in the same room.

"How have you been?" he asked.

Alliana was completely unaware of Pat's reactions because she was too busy trying to control her own. Her hands suddenly felt clammy, and her stomach was doing uneasy somersaults. Her heart-rate was going at a slightly irregular speed, and she was doing her best not to look completely ready to run out of this room at a break-neck pace. She never favored the giant elephant in the room and that was going to be the awkward tension between the two, in which she was completely hoping to avoid.

She was almost disappearing through the door when she heard the word that had her halting in her steps, and she exhaled slowly to keep herself composed. She had known that this was bound to happen eventually, with classes and everything but even still she'd never really been ready for handling it. "..Okay." She finally managed to mumble, slowly turning back on her heel and hesitantly slipping back into the room.

She was still avoiding his gaze and it hurt to have to do that. It hurt to have to walk into a room and keep her distance, to not be able to feel the overwhelming happiness she usually did whenever he was around. But she knew times had changed, and there didn't seem to be a thing she could do to fix it.

"I've been alright." She decided to extend the truth just a bit further then it needed to be. No sense in letting him know that she'd actually been rather terrible. "How about you?" Awkward small talk was one of the last things she ever thought she'd have to endure with Pat.

Pat wished it wasn't so awkward with Alli, and he also wished that he could go back in time to slap his past self for ruining the best thing he had ever had. He looked down at the window sill to try to get his cheeks to mellow out and allow for some normalcy to return to his face.

"Oh, that's good," he said, avoiding her eyes and feeling a pang in his heart as he did so. He hated to stand in the same room as her without hugging her. It stung that he couldn't kiss her, couldn't giver her a big kiss and love her, but times had changed. He wanted times to go back though. Was that too much to ask?

"I'm good," he said with a shrug. Yeah, right. He didn't want to admit that he wasn't the best he'd been. Didn't want to admit that he was actually somewhat miserable. Really didn't want to admit that just seeing her again made his heart clench into two tight pieces and took his breath away. "Ummmm.... so. How are classes?"

Well, this was getting even more awkward than he thought it could be.

Alliana breathed in deeply through her nostrils, letting the air settle in her lungs for a longer period of time then what would be considered normal. She wasn't particularly sure why she was holding her breath, maybe because it gave her something else but the situation to focus on. Either way, this was the last thing in the world she wanted to deal with. She could feel the deep ache in her chest and she hated it. She didn't want things to be this way, but it didn't seem like she had much of a choice at this point. All part of growing up was dealing with things you didn't want to, right?

"Yeah.." She mused absently, her gaze skittering up to him for mere seconds before away again. He wasn't looking at her she realized, and that just made her feel even more miserable. He disliked her so much he couldn't even look at her? Not that she was looking at him much either, but that was because it bothered her far too much to look at him.

Hearing that he was good, the barest minimum of what could be considered a smile flickered across her lips. "Oh, cool.." She ventured. This was awful, terrible, nearly unbearable.. but she wouldn't bring up what was happening. It was painfully awkward that they had no clue what to talk about and that just made the situation worse. "Alright. How about you?" Okay, this was getting ridiculous. This had to end. "You know what.. forget it. Have we really stooped down to the level where we can't even talk to each other anymore?" Her voice was quiet and the hurt was almost obvious in her tone, but she swallowed to hold it back.

Patrick saw her lips twitch and wondered if she was smiling. So she was happy that he was alright? Well, it was better than her hating him for the rest of his life on this planet.

"They're going fine," he said, deciding to make a conscious effort to look at her. "Wait, aren't you in most of mine?" Even if his heart broke into a million pieces due to regret, he figured that it was time for him to grow up. He was of age, it was time for him to show some maturity.

When he heard her question, he inwardly winced when he heard the hurt in her voice. Had it come to this? He remembered what they had talked about when they first got together.

"Well, we could always talk about Two-Bit for thirty minutes before one of us realizes that's all we've talked about," he said; a faint note of amusement in his tone.
