Marauder Era:

17 yr old Remus pov:

the first time I saw her, it was raining. She was sitting in one of the window casements facing the courtyard, her long legs stretched out ahead of her. She had a small, absent minded smile as she sniffed the air with her eyes closed. I went to walk past her, but was stopped by a lightly Irish accented voice.

"Hello, I just love it when rains. Don't you?"

I turned back to see her watching me from a pair of deep golden eyes, half hidden under her slightly wavy bangs. She wrinkled her nose at me in a friendly way and I realised I was staring. I couldn't help it. There was something familiar about this girl and her Russet hair and gold eyes.

"I do, actually. it makes everything smell so clean afterward. " I said as I moved forward and leaned on the sill by her feet. I took a deep sniff, my werewolf enhanced senses picking out and identifying each of the individual scents. Except I couldn't label one that flitted teasingly under my nose. It smelled like home cooking with spices, then it would change and smell like cinnamon, then something else.

She held her hand out, her nails decorated with silver polish.

"Sorcha Alexander, Ravenclaw." She smiled and winked like there was some great secret about her name.

"Remus Lupin, Gryffindor." I shook the proffered hand, then turned as another Ravenclaw ran by, tossing a book at her. "Oi, Sorcha! You forgot this in Potions!" He shouted as he went on by. I fully expected her to duck or miss it, but she caught it in one fluid motion without a blink.

"Well, it's been lovely, but I have to get to my next class. my free periods up." She jumped down from the sill and landed without a sound on the hard, stone floor. I blinked, I couldn't even do that.

"You spent your free period just smelling the rain?" I questioned skeptically.

"yep, Housemates think I'm a bit daft, but every time it rains, I'm either outside in it or near a window. Then, of course, they complain a bit about how I smell after I get wet." She gave me a cheeky smile and left, leaving me a bit confused. Why would she smell after getting wet?
