PostSubject: Every New Beginning Has an End [Open!]   Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:48 pm

Week Before University || Year 1

Eliana let out a soft sigh as she moved her gaze from the window to the dish before her. Normally, she loved ice cream. Normally, she had to stop herself from a second scoop. But 'normally' was the ice cream in Malaysia, with their odd flavours ('teh tarik', 'durian' (this one, she didn't enjoy), 'sweet corn', and even 'yam') that most people were hesitant to try. Here, there were all the typical flavours -- rocky road, vanilla, strawberry, chocolate -- and she stirred the liquid that had once been 'peanut butter' and sighed again.

There would be no more travelling for a long time. There would be no more stepping off the plane into humidity that made her hair stick to her forehead at once. There would be no more struggling to understand what people were saying to her or using the phrase she first learnt from any new language -- I'm sorry, I don't understand.

There's a first time for everything, but what nobody told me is that every new beginning has an end. The lyrics she recently heard had struck a chord in her, and she couldn't even listen to the rest of the song.

'It would be fun', they told her. 'It will be a new adventure.' 'It's a new season of your life.' They were right, in a way. They also warned her. Re-entry, they said, wouldn't be easy. But she never expected how it would feel. The crippling loneliness; the sense of loss, like something important had died and she was the only one mourning; the feeling of restriction, of a longing to leave and go anywhere but here...

Eliana forced her mind away from all of it and focused on her melted ice cream. It wasn't appetising before, and it definitely wasn't now. She pushed the bowl away, but didn't get up to leave; where did she have to go? Nowhere. So, instead, she pulled out her notebook and pen, and stared at the few lines she'd written, a song she started a while ago and just never got around to finishing. There was no point, but it was better than doing nothing at all, and so she sat, staring at the paper and trying to will up lyrics.

With all her friends each busy doing their own thing, Alexis was left on her own. She didn't mind it one bit - for she loved having alone time - but she'd just about run out of things to do. She'd clocked almost two hours gaming with a few of her online friends and had gone on a TV marathon. She could always spend the rest of the day reading but deciding that she'd strained her eyes enough for one day, and needed a change of environment, she opted to head outdoors instead.

In a simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt, she grabbed her backpack and headed out of her dorm, one destination on her mind. Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. Alexis loved anything sweet and was always up for some ice cream.

Once she was out in the open, she shifted to her Animagus form, a Golden Eagle. With a few powerful beats, she was off, cutting through the air and enjoying the rush of adrenaline she always felt with such freedom. She circled the castle one time before heading to Diagon Alley, her eyes on the lookout for spot she could safely land in. A few metres out, there was an open space. She circled a few times, descending gracefully and shifting back to her human form before completing the journey on foot.

Diagon Alley was busy and thronging with people but Alexis ignored everything and went straight to the parlour, smiling as the bell dinged to announce her arrival. She spent a good few minutes deciding on the flavour she wanted, finally settling on two scoops of mint chocolate chip with sprinkles and a crunchy waffle biscuit.

Cup in hand, Alexis glanced around the place for an empty seat seeing only one at a table occupied by another girl who seemed to be writing - or trying to write - something down. It seemed almost wrong to have to interrupt her but Alexis could not find somewhere else to sit. There was nothing to it; she just had to ask if the girl minded.

She walked the few steps to the table. "Hello! Mind if I join you?" she asked with a smile.
