"Come on Cat, you’re beautiful, and I’m getting as many as I can for the house." he chuckled and opened the door for her, "My lady,"
”..Thanks..You should have seen me a few weeks ago when I was here. I was eating lots of pastries a day so I went cold turkey for a bit,” Cat grinned and curtsied at James. “Why thank you, kind sir.”
"Ok, then we’ll just enjoy delicious french pastries." he chuckled and offered his arm to Cat.
"That sounds like a good plan, though I can’t eat too many. I’m still not over the last time I was in France," Cat giggled and took his arm, smiling at him.
"Well, I’m still here if you ever need to talk, or a hug, okay? I was going to the pastry shop, would you like to join me?"
Cat smiled faintly, “I know you are J..I just don’t want to bring it up to ruin this trip. I’d love to join you, still got time to kill before Frasey is finished.”
"Oh Kitty Cat, what happened?" he asked concerned knowing how close Gideon and Cat were.
"It doesn’t matter Jamesie. I made a mistake that he hasn’t completely forgiven me for yet," she bit her lip, trying not to go into too much detail.
"We are mostly here, the McKinnons, the boys, and the Prewetts, and Lily would’ve known you were coming and would tell you to join the party last night. You must join in one of our adventures."
Cat nodded slightly, “Maybe, Gid and I aren’t on the best of terms right now so I’m not sure if he’ll want me to hang round with him. I promise to join in with at least one adventure though.”
James gave her a hug, “I’m so glad you’re here! Is Frase okay? that must be a lot of responsibility.”
Cathleen hugged her friend back, “I’m glad I’m here as well, and you’re here as well! Frasey is fine, he’s having his briefing today so I’ve just been exploring.”
"Kitty Cat you’re here!"
Cat grinned, the first smile that wasn’t forced for days. “I am Jamesie. I arrived earlier today with my brother. Fraser is helping the ministry with the Quidditch as he’s training to be a mediwizard.”
Gideon rolled his eyes, “Whatever. Call me only Gideon, you have lost the right to nickname me. Oh, dear, I know. It’s just I don’t want to socialize with someone who makes horrible decisions and waits till now to fix them. I guess so.”
Cat continued crying, “..Gideon..please forgive me. We’ve been best friends for years and I can’t live without you…It was a mistake and I’ve regretted my decision since…I didn’t come before because I was scared…Is that it then?”
