 so small you'd miss it, damian
Quote

It’s Trisha who apparently knows where to find this secret room, so it’s her who leads the way to the fifth floor corridor.

But leading the way feels a bit weird, so she tries to get there fast and, in the process, almost falls over when she trips up one of the staircases in her hurry. Luckily, she catches herself, and since she’s in front it’s easier to pretend that no one saw her do that.

“Here we are,” Trisha announces when they reach the fifth floor corridor and her eyes are already scanning the area in front of her. She’d been hoping that they’d catch some older students in the act of going into the secret room so that they wouldn’t have to spend time looking for it at all but no such luck.

“I’ve heard the…” Trisha begins to say, only to stop as she tries her hardest to recall what exactly the club guys had said. “I think it’s the statue. Anyway, I think that’s the thing that leads to that fancy bathroom only prefects can use. So we don’t need to worry about that.”

Trisha’s money is on one of the portraits since she’d heard stories of them leading to hidden places, but she has no idea which one.

He follows Trisha up the stairs, eyes looking left and right to see if he can spot an entrance to this secret room or passage she's heard of. When the girl trips, Day instinctively jerks forward to try and help, should she fall. But then she catches herself and Day rolls his eyes, knowing she can't see him doing so.

Trisha mentions the statue being the entrance to the prefect's bathroom, and Day immediately stores away the information for a later date. It's something he's heard rumors of, but never confirmed, and anyway, doesn't entrance require a password?

Day walks forward. "Right, so. Ideas?" he asks, looking up at Trish. He'd love to take charge, but he knows that he should have the one with information taking the lead, as much as it gives a sour feeling in his gut.

Honestly, Trisha would love it if Damian took charge, and at this point they probably knew about as much as each other anyway.

Still, he’s only asked for ideas, and that’s easy. Trisha is quick to part with the knowledge that’s keeping her in the lead as her eyes keep flitting around the corridor. “I’ve heard a lot of the portraits in this castle lead to secret places. Or maybe, if they’re feeling kind, they’d give us some kind of hint.

“There’s also the rooms,” she adds after a brief pause. “Not everything’s hidden in the corridors.”

She finally turns to Damian and… waits. It’s his call now.

Day tilts his head, considering Trisha's words. "Well. I'm looking for more of a room, right now, but we can search for corridors later." he pauses to give Trisha a sideways glance. "That is, only if you have an inkling of where this secret room of yours might be."

He raises an eyebrow, hoping for a favorable answer. A room hidden from others would be best for his purposes. But otherwise...a corridor might work.

When Damian glances at her, Trisha quickly looks to the side, as if she hadn’t been watching and waiting for an answer. “A-a room?” she repeats his words and her brow furrows as she tries her Trisha best to come up with some information that she didn’t really know.

“Um, well then, I guess we’re best off looking…” her voice trails off as she again looks down the corridor with a scrutinising look on her face. If I were a hidden room, where would I be hiding?

“No one ever really looks in the classrooms, so I guess we could try there?” Trisha suggests, only halfway confident in her suggestion. But it made sense, didn’t it? To hide a room next to another room.

Day tilts his head. Then nods, confident. "Okay. Let's search one, then," he notes, sounding as if it was a suggestion he'd come up with first. Arrogant as always.

He leads them to the first classroom they come across. A quick peek inside shows it's empty, and Day pushes open the door first, knowing Trisha must be behind.

"I'll check the far walls," he says, pointing to the walls furthest from the door. "You check these ones. Maybe cast the unlocking charm every so often — see if it opens any passages."

“Alright,” Trisha says, also sounding as if the suggestion was Damian’s. She’s all too comfortable in thinking that it is, and in following him into the first classroom they come across too.

Trisha looks around the room, awed by how empty it is. She doesn’t think she’s ever been inside an empty classroom before. It’s almost kind of eerie when you know it’s supposed to be full of students. But before Trisha has a chance to say any of that though, Damian’s already given her some instructions.

“Right,” Trisha says, as she turns to the closer walls and starts inspecting them. They look pretty wall-like so far. “The ‘alohomora’ spell, right?” She’s checking in case there’s another spell that’s slipped her mind.

The wall she’s looking at looks pretty ordinary. A little dusty, though - no one’s cleaned it in a while. “Which classroom do you suppose this is anyway?” she half-asks Damian, half-wonders out loud to herself.

DAMIAN BLACK i've got no dnd for a month so imma fill the void by rolling perception checks with every trisha post o/ she got a three this time.

Day nods, slipping his wand out of his pocket. It's a jet-black, sinister-looking thing, but he holds it up like it's an old friend, pointing it towards the stone walls.

He shrugs at Trisha's question. "Dunno. Ancient Studies, maybe?" It doesn't look well-equipped with much, so it's probably not one of the core classes. Maybe a less-chosen elective. Or perhaps even a classroom that's no longer used.

Day sweeps his wand in confident motions. "Alohomora!" he calls.

“Ancient studies,” Trisha murmurs absent-mindedly as she looks over the wall with the door. She’s fairly certain that it will lead nowhere - because, well, it already leads somewhere and there’s no spaces unaccounted for. Or that’s how the logic would work in a muggle world.

She hears Damian cast alohomora and suddenly remembers that she, too, can - ought to - use magic and pulls out her own wand and half-heartedly casts the spell on the wall - as expected, nothing happens, and Trisha moves onto another wall.

“What is Ancient Studies, anyway?” Trisha asks, not about to let the room be void of too much silence. “Is it like History of Magic, but… well, ancienter?What’s she’s trying to articulate is 'Is it what Classical Studies is to an ordinary History class?' but clearly doesn’t quite get there. Go Trisha.

DAMIAN BLACK 16 - she realises that the wall she inspected wasn't the one

Day scowls at Trisha's ignorance. His aunt does ancient studies. He knows more about it than she might, but the way she worded it was so ... derogatory.

"Ancient Studies," he says, like he's talking to a little kid, "Is the study of ancient magic. History of Magic is history. Of magic." He glances at her, wondering if she understands. Wondering if any of that filtered into her brain.

He gives the wall he's facing a slight push before turning to the next wall. He casts, "Alohomora!" again, hoping something will reveal itself.

A section of the wall slides away.

“Oh,” is all Trisha dares to say. She recognises the tone of voice Damian is using, knows it enough to know that she’s said something wrong.

And anyway, she still got her answer. The two subjects are like Classical Studies and History.

And really, Trisha’s pretty sure that her own wording had been pretty spot on. Because the way Damian puts it, it still sounds like History of Magic But Ancienter.

She’s not going to say any of that though. And luckily, she doesn’t have to, because she hears an unnatural sound behind her, right after Damian casts another spell.

“You found it?!” Trisha exclaims, half-excited, half-disbelieving that Damian had done so so quickly. But, well, maybe that’s just the power of being a third year.

She rushes to Damian’s side and tip-toes so that she can peer further down into the…

Day peers into the newly revealed room with wide eyes, lips set together. He's here for business, he thinks. But he can't help the smile that creeps onto his face.

The room looks....far better furnished than he would've thought for a secret place. It's got a fireplace, complete with couches and even a potted plant. Though from the layer of dust and the shriveled leaves, Day can tell the place hasn't been touched in a long time.

"Dang," he says, grinning as he inspects the room closer. "Wasn't imagining this."

Trisha follows Damian into the room, eyes wide and taking everything in. To her surprise, the room is decorated - because aren’t secret rooms and the like supposed to be empty? She almost feels as if she’s trespassing and her footsteps suddenly seem louder than they have any right to be.

But the room emits a clear feeling that it hasn’t been used in a long time, and her worries ease enough. She walks to the couch and brushes off a bit of dust - and it already looks more comfortable than anything at home.

Trisha tries to nod her head in simple agreement, but instead she does more than that. Awestruck, she says, “This place is amazing... I can’t believe no one’s been here in…” She pauses to look at the dust her fingertips have picked up, and gives up on her mental calculation quite quickly. “...well, a long time, anyway.”

There’s no way that this was the room she’d heard about from her seniors - and somehow that kind of makes it even better.

She looks over towards the decayed plant and walks over to it, hoping to find… she’s not really sure - a clue, maybe? Because, really, how long can a place like this…

Day picks at the edge of the sofa, then blows on it. Dust billows up in a flurry, and he coughs, covering his mouth with the crook of his arm. "Obviously, this isn't the place your older friends told you about," he notes, dusting off his hands.

He glances at the younger girl (so much taller than him), and he gives her a nod. "Good job," he remarks, approving. He makes mental notes to remember where to find this room — empty classroom most likely for Ancient Studies, use 'Alohomora' on the wall to the left — then raises his wand, pointing it at the pot.

"Orchideous," he murmurs, then watches as flowers bloom. The old plant crumbles away and lays, pushed aside by new shoots.

Day casts Trisha one quick look, then smirks. "Maybe step back a bit?" he suggests. He points his jet-black wand at the sofa, then calls, "Ventus!"

“Yeah, no kidding,” Trisha says, agreeing. With a bit of embarrassed blush for having thought it, she doubts that any couple could come here to do… couple stuff without making marks in the dust.

She almost misses the praise and does a double take - first looking over because Damian said something, and then again because she realised it was something nice. (This isn’t to say she considers Damian mean or anything; Trisha just likes being praised).

It’s just as well she’s paying attention to him, since he goes on to warn her to step back, and as she does Damian casts something that sends dust flying off the couch. Trisha instinctively grabs the collar of her robe and pulls it up to cover her nose and mouth.

“What do you think this room used to be?” Trisha asks through her robe, her voice muffled a bit. She looks around again, more critically this time, taking stock of everything she sees. It definitely seems like this had been a place to relax. Now that the dust appears to have settled more, Trisha lets her collar drop from her face as she continues her speculation. “Do you think one of the old professors used to use it alot? Oh! Do you think any of the professors we have now know it’s here?”
