A sigh of relief exited as he finally walked through the doors of the castle. I don't remember the walk being that long, or maybe I'm weaker than I thought. He shrugged to himself, and then looked up straight into Dumbledore's eyes.
"It is good to see you back, Mr. Hallowsfield," Dumbledore said pleasantly holding out his hand in greeting.
Devon smiled one of his few genuine smiles and shook the proffered hand. "Thank you, Professor. It's good to be back."
Dumbledore smiled back at him and then gave a brief warning about behaving properly in the school until graduation. Devon nodded his agreement and then watched as the old professor left.
Instead of heading to his dorm right away, he sat down on the grand staircase. Classes would start up tomorrow for him, and he had no idea where his counterparts were in the scheme of things. He leaned back against the steps and just sat for a while, ignoring the students who gave him slightly odd looks.

Kaila yawned a bit as she slugged through the halls. With exam time so close, she spent every waking minute that she wasn't breathing or playing Quidditch to study. But really, who needed sleep? She even took to a rather bad habit; reading while walking. Now this usually took place while she was doing her prefect rounds, which she happen to be doing now. And it usually ended in her on the floor, chasing after all the papers and books that escaped from her faux leather book bag. Her round was just about over, just to the entrance hall to finish. With her nose deep into a book, she nearly stumbled and tripped over someone on the stairs. "Sorr- Devon?" She had to change her sentance by shock alone. She hadn't seen this Slytherin boy in ages.

The sound of someone almost tripping right behind him and then his name made him turn around abruptly. Captain, Kaila, was behind him, a book in one hand. A wide and brilliant smile spread across his face. He ignored the inelegant state she was in at the moment.
"Hello, love," he said with a wink. "Did you miss me?"
He hadn't realized that he missed her until he saw her again. What was it about this Ravenclaw that made the best come out of him?

She blinked a few times and rubbed her eyes just to be sure. Was it really him? "W-what? Devon! Where have you been?" She giggled a bit as she righted herself on the steps, picking up a few things that fell from her bag and righting her hair. She wondered if she should embrace the Slytherin, or something at least. But would he want that?

He laughed and helped to pick up a few things for Captain. "I'm sorry I've been away for so long. I had some... business to take care of." He hesitated to explain what had happened to him. Kaila was trustworthy but he wasn't certain if he could tell somebody what had happened. Legally. He shrugged mentally and then stood up and embraced Kaila tightly. "It's good to see you again, little Claw," he muttered into her ear.

Kaila smiled as she took the things he held out for her and carefully placed them in her bag, thanking him as she did. She squeaked a bit at being taken by surprise by the Slytherin's hug. She paused for a beat before tantatively wrapping her arms around him to return the embrace. She blushed a bit at his words so close to her.

He let Captain go then stepped back a bit, slightly unnerved by his own actions. Oh well, what is done is done. Plus it's Kaila. "So what have you been up to?" he said trying to put the focus on her instead of him. "How's old Hogwarts doing?" He softly placed a hand on the wall next to them. "I've missed this place."

She smiled a bit at his hasty retreat. She truly had missed him. He was her friend, and Kaila was loyal to end for her friends. "Nothing out of the ordinary. Upped my study a bit though, got to make sure I'm one hundred perfect ready." She grinned. "Hogwart's... Have you... Have you heard about the attacks?" She questioned quietly, as if afraid to speak of it. "I know what you mean. I can't imagine what it's going to be like to graduate.... To leave forever I mean. Never see this place again."

"Attacks? They're still going on?" He frowned thinking about the Mrs. Norris one. "I'm assuming nothing very serious has happened. I mean, the school is still open." The attacks had never made sense to him, not realizing the importance of the pureblood-muggle feud that was constantly going on. He dismissed it almost immediately because of Kaila's last remarks. "At least you will have another year here. I just got here but am forced out already. Crazy how that works huh?" The hurt couldn't quite be hidden from his expression. After everything, to be sent out already....

"W-well, not as much. Nothing too Bad I guess... A few petrifications. In fact, a very good friend of mine happened to get petrified.... But thank Merlin it was only that. It could have been so worse..." She let her voice trail and shuddered a bit at the thought. "Yeah, one more year... This is your last year right? Seems like everyone I know is leaving..." Pumpkin, CC, Hex, and Tor. What would school be like without them? "But I always was the baby of the group..." She mused, mostly to herself.

"But hey, at least we're the same age!" he winked at Captain trying to cheer her up. "And I'm sure you'll find someone you can chat with." He had entered a year ahead of the other sixteen-year-olds because of his advanced homeschooling. It was something that slightly bothered him now. "You know... if I fail the N.E.W.T.s, I can always come back for another year." Assuming I don't get put in Azkaban or back with Uncle.

The Quidditch captain smiled at his remark. It was good to know at least he was still her age. She blinked a bit owlishly at his remark. "Fail your N.E.W.Ts? You shouldn't talk like that." She shook her head a bit. "Besides, I highly doubt someone like you would fail."

"Thanks for the confidence, love," he said winking at her. "I'm not expecting to fail, unless I somehow managed to get too far behind. I doubt that though." He wasn't boasting just stating his own opinion of himself. It was no secret he was both advanced and intelligent. He could have easily been a Claw but the Hat had sorted him into Slytherin. Then he realized he didn't have much else to talk about. The only thing that he really wanted to discuss with his friend, he didn't know for sure if he could. Instead he went back to the 'monster' terrorizing Hogwarts. "So, what do you think is behind these attacks? You said one of your friends was petrified. How?"

Captain smiled a bit at Devon's always humble words. She frowned a bit at him mentioning the attacks. "I don't.... Actually... Know..." One of the hardest sentances possible for a Ravenclaw student to say passed through Kaila's gritted teeth. Godric, she hated that sentance! "My friend... He said the last thing he remembered was looking down into a puddle in front of his common room, that's about all we know."

He frowned thinking through the possibilities. But he knew for a fact none of the students would be able to have any black magic knowledge. It just wasn't taught in Hogwarts. "A puddle... possibly something with reflection then..." he mused. Then something about her sentence caught his attention. He. Who's he? He didn't press but knew that it would bother him for a while. The most annoying part is, he hadn't realize he would be jealous of someone over Captain. She was just a little sister-like person... right?

"Reflection..." She mentally saved that for further analysis. "Yes, I;ve talked to him a few times. Visited him in the hospital wing. He didn't hear anything, no footsteps, no nothing." She shrugs a bit, frowning.

"Weird..." he frowned getting over his momentary jealousy. Captain can befriend anybody she wants. "Do you know if the others have experienced the same thing?" This was a mystery, alright. One that actually interested him enough to get involved.

"The others? Well, I there wasn't anything on the floor where Colin Creevy was found..." She shuddered a bit at the thought. She had there, along with a few other prefects when the teachers had gone into the scene. "And Mrs. Norris wasn't petrified where she was hung, it was somewhere else."

"Hmm..." he said thoughtfully lapsing into his own thoughts. So maybe a reflection had nothing to do with it. What then? Maybe some dark wizard had gotten into Hogwarts. There are tons of them in England for some reason, even if they aren't very strong. He scratched his chin and realized that he should shave again soon. He was slightly surprised by it.

"I... I don't think it was a wizard. Or at least, not someone who hasn't been in the school for a long time. They've been moving around quite efficiently, whoever they are..." She supplied after he had gone silent. "And the only connection between the victims is that they're all muggleborn. They aren't even from the same house."

"Has anybody come forward with any information?" he asked happy that Captain had guessed the reason for his silence. This was more interesting by far than anything he had recently been involved in. "Only muggleborns....? Why only focus on them? Oh that's true. That feud..."

She shook her head. "A few of the prefects have been asking and working around." Her face fell a bit at the recolection of herself trying to convince one former best friend Percy Weasley to aid her, but being roughly turned down with a statement about having better things to do than play with children. "Only muggleborns. Obviously, no attacks on Slytherin. And actually, no attacks on Ravenclaw either but..." She let that sentance drift instead of finishing it, realizing what she was going to say. "A-anyway, attacks on Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. My friend is in Hufflepuff actuallly.." She supplied. "And I think... I think whoever it was, they were waiting outside Hufflepuff common room for him, or at least any muggleborn... Or at least that's how it seems."

He snorted with derision. "How noble. Wait right outside for somebody just to attack." None from Ravenclaw or Slytherin, that's good. Slytherin wasn't a surprise to him. Most were pureblood or half-blood, and too ambitious and cunning to get caught in such a situation. Plus they probably all thought it was for the best. "Are you alright with all of this? A friend got petrified. Please don't tell me you were on the scene after one of the attacks?"

She shook her head in agreement of the statement. Someone wanted to hurt these people, but obviously didn't want to get caught. "I... I've seen a few of the s-scenes, yeah. Nothing I can't handle." She assured. After all, she was a Darington, soon to be the next Auror extrodinaire, a few petrifications shouldn't shake her that much. "Tor's by far the most.... upsetting, I guess, but I'm fine." She forced a smile.

He narrowed his eyes at her, knowing she was lying. She came from a line of Aurors but that did not really mean much. "You can talk to me, you know," he said casually. His jealousy returned. Would she feel the same if he had been laid up?
