[London] Glitz and Glamour

Eva Corolla, Occult Records

#31491
Location: London, Gala Dinner • Date: October 5th, 2003


Eva Corolla found herself dressed up in a sparkly black dress, makeup and hair done beforehand, and supporting another charity that she barely remembered the name of. Though despite the fact that she had very little control over where she made appearances and even what she looked like anymore, she did enjoy the glamour and importance of it all.

The hall they were in was immaculately decorated, and there were round tables set up ready for the meal and auction, and of course there was a seating plan.

Eva made her way over to the table, wondering if she would know the people she was sat with this time. She braced herself for another uncomfortable evening of small talk.

Perecles sauntered into the hall, dressed in a spiffy suit. Keira was at a show, so she wasn't with him. That wasn't going to stop him from enjoying the night, though. He wove his way through the tables, looking for the number he had been assigned. Always in the back of his mind he wondered if the people who organized the event actually thought about the seating plan or if it was random.

As he approached the table, though, Perecles settled on random. Otherwise, he had no idea how he had been placed at the same table as her of all people.

"Eva!" he announced in a light, airy tone, spreading his arms. "How nice it is to see you!"

Eva looked up, and internally sighed. Externally, she did not want to be seen looking anything less than pleased, especially after his reaction upon seeing her. But here was the boy that had been a rival to her ever since she was eleven years old going for the main singing parts in the Frog Choir and Drama Club at Hogwarts.

"Perecles," Eva smiled back, as she hugged him. "How have you been?"

He couldn't believe he had to sit with Eva of all people. He would never forgive her for stealing the Halloween solo in their fourth year. Never. He was confident in his ability to put on a show for the press, though, so he simply fixed the most fake smile on his face he could muster.

"Oh, just wonderful. I had a big show in Brighton recently, and we were sold out. And you? How is my favourite duet partner?" he asked, taking his seat next to her.

"Duet partner? It's been years," Eva said, though she still had a smile on her face. She had never known that your facial muscles could actually get tired, until she entered the public eye. Smiling all the time did get tiring.

"It's going well, Occult are starting to expand a bit more internationally, I did a few shows in the USA, and we've been talking about possibly Romania next," Eva took pleasure in telling him.

Perecles could swear he felt his eye twitch. "Oh, that's just wonderful," he said, thanking his years of being in the spotlight for allowing him to continue pretending everything was alright. In the back of his head, he knew he needed to talk to his manager about more shows in the USA.

"Romania, though? Not scared of the vampires?" he asked, just as a waiter arrived to fill his champagne glass. He would need a lot of it to survive the evening.

"This is a far cry from feasts at Hogwarts, hm?" he added, glancing around at all the people dressed in such immaculate outfits.

"I doubt they'll be allowed anywhere near me," Eva smirked. Having signed a recording contract straight out of Hogwarts, Eva had never really experienced adult life as a Witch without some level of security and protection around her.

"Yeah, remember the dress robes everyone used to wear at events," Eva remembered. She was barely older than a Hogwarts student, but it already seemed like a lifetime ago.

If anything, Perecles had even less life experience than Eva when it came to life without security. He had dropped out of school in his sixth year to sign his recording contract, and barely held onto his wand anymore. He nodded in agreement, thinking about the time the aurors had provided his security for a concert. Aurors, of all people.

"Oh, Merlin, those dress robes. My parents bought the most atrocious robes for me. I had to get those burned when I left school," he replied, scrunching up his nose.
