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.

The amused look on Mags’ face sort of hovered there for a second, even after what Blake had said, almost as though she hadn’t heard him right. Finally though, her expression slowly melted away and froze into one of fright mingled in with bitter disappointment. She didn’t address him straight away, but suddenly felt very self-conscious of his hand resting on her mid-region and she quickly removed it from its place on her stomach. Her hair curtained her face from view, but she could still feel it burning with shame. She started to feel sick again, but she was fairly certain that it wasn’t the baby acting up this time. Ruby’s words returned to her again, stinging her as she recalled what her best friend had told her the day she had found out about her and Jack. What, already?! Dude, what’s he putting in your drinks? Had she really allowed herself to be that careless?

“How did you want me tellin’ you exactly Blake?” she asked him, her head still cast down. “How could I tell ya somethin’ like that when I was still gettin’ used to the idea myself like… couldn’t even bring myself around to the concept. Blake… I’m sixteen years old- I can’t be someone’s mum, least of all when I can barely take care of myself properly… I’m not even outta school yet and I’m gonna have a baby? That’s stupidity right there if I didn’t know any better… I’m so stupid Blake… like honestly, can’t say I even knew what I was doin’… was my first time n’ every thin’ n’ now I gotta prepare for a kid… I mean…” Her voice trailed off as she choked up over her own words.

She shook her head and finally raised her eyes so that they could be leveled with Blake’s. “This wasn’t meant to happen… but I gotta live with it now,” she concluded finally. “Gotta deal with whatever comes my way and if that means you leavin’ me, which I can understand- I mean, I am bringin’ loads of baggage with me, well… I’ll try to live with that too.”
