Norah frowned as she mulled it all over. “For right now, I think it’s the best.” Her words were uncertain, but she couldn’t think of any other way to go about her seemingly doomed fate. The blonde ran a hand through her hair, sighing as she did so. “If I respond, well I won’t have as much time to think about how to deal with this. I do know I can’t avoid it forever, but for right now I need time to figure it out.”
What “it” was, Norah wasn’t entirely sure, but the fourth year knew that it was important before she started playing this game that the pure bloods did. The Lyra spooned a mouthful of flowery ice cream into her mouth and hummed, feeling a little more optimistic about things now that she felt like she had a little more time to sort out her brain. She couldn’t say whether it was a good idea, probably not, but it was the only really decent option that she’d been presented with.
Her lips twitched up in a smile at the girl across from her. She hadn’t expected for Dea to offer to help her, after all they were really only acquaintances, but it was nice to know that someone had her back if she needed it. Her face etched in concern as her new official friend coughed violently. Norah leaned forward a little as if to help, but hesitated as she managed to compose herself.
“Well good,” she practically beamed, happy that her offer had been accepted. She still felt like she’d bothered Dea, but she wasn’t one to harp so she dropped it. Such things weren’t worth the struggle and she had a bigger battle to fight. “Wanna just walk down the strip and see what store jumps out? I definitely feel like a new dress is in order too!” Norah quirked her head to the side, smiling as she waited for an affirmative answer or alternative plan.
