Lily walked outside unto the grounds, the smiled upon finding her favorite tree. She sat down at it, back against the trunk. She looked around for a moment taking in the peaceful surroundings and animals about, she smiled upon hearing the birds sing. It was nice out here, that was why she came, it was a good place to relax. She grabbed her bag and began looking through it in search of her book, Pride and Prejudice, it was her forth time reading it but she loved the book. So she opened it and began reading, simply enjoying being outside.

Marlene smiled lightly to herself as she walked around the grounds, fondness painting itself on her features as a small sigh escaped her lips. She loved this place so much, it was more of a home to her than her actual home. She knew she had been lucky to come here - of course, she was a witch so it had been rather obvious her whole life that she'd be allowed to Hogwarts, but her father being who he was, she'd almost been convinced he'd rather force her to stay home and help her mother instead of going to school. It appeared that he still lived in the decades before his time and he thought that, even for witches, education for women was something stupid and she'd much rather learn how to keep the house clean until he found her someone to marry - a pureblood wizard, obviously.

She shook her head with a frustrated sigh and then noticed Lily Evans sitting by a tree not too far away from her. Tilting her head slightly, she bit her bottom lip lightly, hesitating before going to her. She had talked to her a few times, but never enough to consider her as a good friend, though she wouldn't mind at all if she were. After a few seconds of thought, she shrugged lightly to herself and made her way to the Gryffindor girl. She almost stopped when she saw she was reading - maybe she wouldn't want to be disturbed. But if she had noticed her coming her way, she'd look rather silly turning around now.

"Hello Lily," she said with a shy smile when she reached her.

Lily looked up from her book and saw Marlene. She gave a small smile and shut her book, it was rude to read when someone was talking to you and after all she'd read it before.

"Hello Marlene," she said. "How are you today?"

"I am fine," Marlene said, smiling. "I hope I'm not disturbing you, if you'd rather read I can leave," she said, a shy smile playing at her lips.

She knew Lily was a nice girl to most people, except one or two famous Gryffindor boys who were known from the whole school, but Marlene could understand why she acted the way she did toward them.

"That's good," Lily said. "And please stay, I've actually read the book a couple of times already so I don't mind."

"Alright, if you are sure," Marlene said shyly, smiling lightly as she sat on the ground and looked around.

"I love this place," she said with a small sigh, more to herself than to Lily.

Lily gave a small smile as she looked around also. "I do, too. It's peaceful, a nice change from inside the castle."

"That's for sure," Marlene said with a small laugh, nodding. "But I love the craziness going around the castle as well. I just love everything about this place, even Mrs. Norris at time," she said, making a face.

Lily laughed. "I love this place but at the same time I'm always missing home, even with Petunia there... I don't know I guess I just sometimes miss my life before being a witch. It was so different," she said voicing her thoughts a loud as she got lost in them.

Then, coming out of her thoughts she shook her head. "Sorry about that," she said.

"It's alright, I know what you mean," Marlene said with a smile. "I do miss my sister terribly as well, and my mother. It worries me to leave for school sometimes, but she writes to me almost every day so I know that she is alright," she sighed.

"Wow, I wish my sister and I had that kind of relationship," Lily said with a small sigh. "But ever since I became a witch she hates me."

"I am sorry to hear that," Marlene said sympathetically. "But I'm sure she doesn't truly hates you. As for my sister, we have to have this kind of relationship..." she said, not able to hide the slightly dark edge to her voice. She never talked about her family life really, or explained it anyway.

Lily heard the edge and frowned slightly. She was going to change the subject, but curiousity got the better of her.

"Why is that?" she asked.

Marlene realized maybe she had said too much and bit her bottom lip nervously, trying to find something to say, and quick.

"My mom is not really healthy, she has heart problems and she doesn't need us fighting all the time," she said.

It wasn't exactly a lie - her mother wasn't healthy lately, but it wasn't because of her heart. That part of her body had already been broken for a while now.

Marlene looked down at her hands, lightly pulling at the grass with her fingers. Then she cleared her throat silently and looked up with a smile.

"What were you reading?" she asked curiously, attempting to change the subject.

"I've read it before," Marlene said, smiling. "It is a good book, though I prefer Sense and Sensibility."

"That she does," Marlene agreed, nodding. "I love Charlotte Bronte's work as well," she added.

Marlene smiled and looked around the place, not really sure of what to say. She wasn't used to having long conversations and most of the time she had no clue how to act or talk, just like right now.

Dorcas was walking on the castel grounds when she spotted a red head -- like one of a kind in the world -- with Marlene. She made her way towards them smiling. "Hey girls." she said being in a good mood.
