Leo walked in the Hall with a pounding headache. She had skipped the end of Transfiguration to go to the hospital wing for a potion from Pomfrey, but she had taken one step in the hospital wing, saw Colin Creevey's Petrified body - so it hadn't been a dream, I had heard the portraits talking about it ... - and had been unable to go any further, moving straight to the Hall in a daze. Colin had been so frozen. So lifeless, and it was made all the worse by his youth and innocence.
And it had looked so familiar.
Running away. It almost felt like Leo had been doing it all her life. Always running away from something. But what was it this time? Memories of an event long past, memories that she thought she had pushed down deep, threatened to resurface. She didn't want to think about it - she couldn't think about it.
Because she had nowhere left to run.

She walked into the hall and straight away sat down at the Hufflepuff table. She picked up a muffin and started to look around the room.

Leo stared at he food in front of her. For the first time, for as long as she could remember, she had lost her appetite. And it wasn't just because of the headache.
She rubbed her forehead, hoping that would somehow massage away the tension. The Hall was somewhat empty and, thankfully, quiet, so she wouldn't have to worry about the overly gossipy fourth years that liked to chirp at the top of their lungs.
The sound of quiet footsteps echoed. Leo glanced up out of reflex. Oh, Merlin. Possibly one of the last people she wanted to see, especially now. "Don't do it. Don't."
Leo let out a shaky breath and looked at the wood. Why now? And everything had been going so well.

She munched on her muffin. Happy that, at last the hall was relatively empty.
She looked around the hall once again to see if there was anyone hiding in a shadow. She caught sight of Leo a gave a small half smile before returning to her muffin.

Leo ran a hand through her hair. She had finally got it cut. She nodded back, uncertain of what to do. What would be the least painful thing?
Leo left her bag on the seat next to her and wandered over to the Hufflepuff table. She coughed, clearing her throat. 'Uh ... Hey.'

'Hi' she looked up at Leo, smiling slightly. 'How are you?' she asked, she always felt a little awkward around Leo. Then again, compared to how she felt around anyone else. That was a positively amazing relationship.

'Could be better ...' Leo admitted. She rubbed her forehead again. 'So, um, you heard about Creevey, yeah?'

'oh, yeah. So sad' she picked away at her almost finished muffin 'Did.... Do you know him?'

'No,' Leo replied quietly, her eyes on the muffin. She dug around in her pocket and brought out one of her trusty Acid Pops. 'No, I didn't.'
So why had this affected her so much? She knew perfectly well why. Too close to home. Much to close to home. A scowl darkened Leo's face. Why did Creevey have to be such a fanboy and try to visit Potter when he shouldn't have been out? Now look what had happened.

'yeah, neither did I. Leo...' She trailed off, deciding it was best not to mention anything. Perhaps wasn't thinking the same things she was. '...ahh, never mind'

'What?' Leo stared at her. 'What were you going to say?'
"Don't do it."
"Why not?"
"Just ... you really shouldn't."

Leo looked up at the ceiling. Don't do it. Some help that had been. 'You know what?' she snapped, suddenly annoyed. 'Don't bother. You don't like to tell me things, as I can recall.' Her jaw clenched, she stormed back to the Gryffindor table.

She sat in silence for a few seconds. Leo's words feeling like knifes going through her.
After a few moments she got up and walked quietly over to Leo.
'Leo... I'm so sorry' she paused so she could attempt to swallow the fear and shame rising in her throat 'I... I shouldn't have said anything. I...' she broke off unable to think of anything she could say.

Leo picked up her bag and spun around. She knew she was being irrationally angry - it hadn't been Scarlet's fault, not in the slightest - but emotions aren't, for the most part, rational. Leo needed someone to blame, to make her feel better about herself. Portion off the guilt so she didn't have to take the whole burden herself.
'You might as well not have,' Leo snarled, 'for all the good it did.' Leo paused, but the fire in her eyes didn't dim. 'I don't know how much you know about it - I don't know how you know about it, and frankly, I don't want to know. I don't want to think about that at ALL.'
But she couldn't help it. The cage had been unlocked; the monster released. Her ghosts of her past were making a comeback with a vengeance. And it was one ghost in particular that would never stop haunting her.
Without another word, Leo turned on her heel and strode towards the door. She needed air. A few younger students were forced to move out of her path, because Leo showed no sign of stopping.
Running away. Yet again. She never stopped.

She walked back the her seat and collapsed under the table. She curled up into a tight ball and buried her head in her knees. She started to rock back and forth, humming to herself an old child's rhyme that she used to use when bag things happened.

'nobody loves me, everybody hates me. I think I should go and eat some worms'

She hummed it over and over, until she finally felt numb again.
