That was why the young Slytherin girl had gone to Hogsmeade that weekend, believing that she would do a little bit of Christmas shopping, maybe have a snowball fight with her friends and then go for lunch and a butterbeer.
It didn't bother her anymore. Honest.
Alicia had gone inside the Magical Neep to stock up on some of her favourite drinks and Katharine wasn't much bothered about going inside. She was rather enjoying the freedom of being outside; OWLs were stressing her out, and she often felt like she wasn't taking full advantage of her weekends because she was too busy studying. She had told Alicia she would wait for her, so she was now stood against the shop window, kicking the snow with the toe of her boots.
