- Feeling something paw at her face, Lizzie's eyes fluttered open, only to see her kitten, Felix, sitting right next to her face. Although a smile was on her face, she still groaned.Why couldn't the kitten just let her sleep in peace? Looking around and seeing that all of the girls in the room were still passed out, she could tell it was early. She had a feeling that nobody else would be getting up anytime soon. It had been a late night for most of the older students, that much was for sure. Unlike most people who attended the party in the Room of Requirement, she'd restricted herself. Who needed to be drunk to have fun? Well, quite a few people, but she wasn't one of them. She could have fun on her own, with or without alcohol. Even though she did drink a little bit. Luckily, there weren't any classes today, just the trip to Hogsmeade.
That was something that she couldn't help but to look forward to, even if she didn't really have any plans for it. She was sure that it wouldn't be too hard to find someone to bother. Going to Hogsmeade was always fun for her, there was always so much to see! There was just something so nice about the old town. Her thoughts of the trip were interrupted when Felix bit her nose and she swatted lightly at the calico kitten, unable to hold back a laugh. He tended to get angry when he wasn't fed right away, and could really be quite a sight. "Calm down!" She whispered, amusement in her voice, as she pulled herself out of bed to feed the feline. Now that that was taken care of, this seemed as good a time as any to start her day.
Getting ready hadn't taken her very long at all. It definitely hoped that many people still seemed to be asleep, therefore she didn't get distracted talking to anyone. Lizzie tended to get quite off-task whenever she ran into a friend, or anyone for that matter. Once she got talking, it was hard to stop, and next thing she knew, she'd completely forgotten what she was even trying to do in the first place. Being so talkative was both a curse and a blessing. Quickly, she'd managed to get dressed in a pair of shorts and a cute top. It was rather different than her outfit from the night before, and she was grateful for that. She'd much rather be comfortable on the trip as opposed to wearing a dress or something like that. The blonde wore just a bit of makeup, keeping it simple. After all, it was just a trip to Hogsmeade, not a ball!
Once she decided that she had everything she'd need for the day, Lizzie set off to the courtyard. The halls were relatively quiet, which she found a bit unusual, but it was still early. Actually, she hadn't even glanced at the clock, so maybe everyone was already there, waiting to be able to depart the school. A bit confused as to which, she continued to walk, arriving at her destination. A few people were hanging around about the courtyard, but not nearly as many as usual. This led her to the realization that she was early, and not the other way around. Well, this was certainly a first! She was nearly always late, take the ball and the scavenger hunt for example. Sighing softly, she waited for the signal for them to leave, or for someone to come talk to her. Either, or even both, would be greatly appreciated.
