Log Title: All I can say is you save me
Location: Gryffindor Common Room
Characters Involved: Blake Parker (youllbeokay ) and Mags Rowley (peacelovechaser )
Summary of Log: Blake really needs to apologise to Mags!
Rating: PG, maybe?

If he was honest, Blake was feeling pretty weird lately, about a lot of things. His main concern, was of course, his girlfriend. Her behaviour was really strange. Some days, Mags could be really affectionate and cuddly - That's what Blake liked, although it seemed to become a little bit of a rarity these days, because of his girlfriend's constant mood swings. Mags was really snappy now, she'd flip at the smallest thing and bite Blake's head off with no thought of the consequences. Hell, she'd made it quite clear that she hated him the other day, then claimed it was down to being angry... but that wasn't something you just threw around with no thought about it, was it? And what was with the panicy outburst that Mags had posted on the network a while back? It wasn't something that he particularly wanted to bring up, but the truth behind the post had been flitting about Blake's mind ever since he'd read it. He was sure as hell it wasn't down to a cat dieing at all, it needed to be way more serious than that... But he couldn't risk having Mags turn on him again. He didn't want to have to face being told he was hated a second time within a week.

The second thing that Blake was concerned about was the whole situation with the Death Eaters that had plagued the school at the end of last year. The most that he knew, was that he was the one who had committed the kidnappings... but if that had been the case, then why was there a complete gap in his mind? He had absolutely no memory of what he had done throughout those months, and he was feeling way too guilty to ask the victims that had been in that cell what had happened to them. Hell, most of them refused to talk to him in the first place. Getting information out of them would be one hell of a task, considering virtually all of them seemed to hate him now. He wanted to know why he had even agreed to the kidnappings in the first place... surely his free will would stop him from ever agreeing to putting his fellow students in danger? Especially Lanisa and Abby. The entire idea of the Death Eaters had been a constant worry for Blake following their rescue from the hell-hole. What was to say the whole thing couldn't happen all over again? As far as he knew there had been little-to-no increase in security around Hogwarts...

Still. Death Eaters could wait until another day, because this moment was being dedicated to his girlfriend. Through one moment of weakness, he had turned on her and Blake Parker felt awful for that. He didn't care that Mags appeared to be getting away with treating him however the hell she wanted - Blake had already made it quite clear that he wasn't going to live without her, so that included being treated badly at the worst of times. And it was true that the Gryffindor Common Room was pretty quiet right now. Deserted, even. Taking his place on one of the comfy sofas, Blake stared down into the fire as he waited for his girlfriend to turn up. This quiet atmosphere was good. It could mean either a full-blown shouting match with no audience... or something else. He hoped for the something else, in all honesty. He was craving attention so badly now.

In the time it had taken Mags to get ready to meet him, Blake had been scouring the network in an attempt to cure his boredom... but what he'd found really made him wish that he'd left his network parchment in his dorm. The news that his girlfriend was pregnant - by his best friend, no less - had hit Blake hard. What had been merely gossip a few moments before had quickly escalated into truth, and as much as Blake wanted to fool himself, there was no denying what had happened, because it all added up. The mood swings, Mags' constant illness, her withdrawal from the Quidditch team... there was no denying that his girlfriend, Mags Rowley, was going to have a child.

The moment his girlfriend appeared next to him though, Blake discarded the network parchment and turned to Mags with a sort of half-smile on his face. "Hey." Was his simple reply, before Blake moved in to give Mags a gentle kiss on the lips. He'd discover later if that was the last kiss he'd ever share with Mags Rowley. As she went on to babble about random nothings, his mind was still half-concentrating on the news that he'd just discovered, because hell, that was Goddamn hard to forget. Her last comment was a gateway to the topic of her pregnancy. It was now, or forever force himself to pretend he didn't know about it... and Blake couldn't go through with that.

"Yeah, I would actually." He commented, slipping his arm around his girlfriend to rest his hand on her stomach. "Here's the thing..." A deep breath, and a sigh. "You slept with Jack, didn't you? ...And you're pregnant, right?" He shuffled awkwardly a little, though not loosening his grip around Mags. "I mean I'm not angry or anything but... I guess I'm a little sad that you felt like you couldn't tell me, you know?"
