Dimitri finished his dinner fairly quickly; he didn't eat very much tonight. After he was done, the teenager scanned the table for a particular redhead. He'd briefly caught sight of her earlier - confirming that she was, indeed back at school - but they hadn't spoken since he'd snuck out of summer school to go and visit her in hospital. The boy stood, stepping out of his seat and moving to where she was seated. He slid in beside her without saying anything to the person on his opposite side whose room he'd just cut in half. Dimitri gave them a look and the kid glanced away, a little intimidated. Good.

Turning to his friend, Dima couldn't help but examine her face. He hadn't been this close to her physically for what, a year now? No, less than a year he corrected internally. Less than a year but more than six months, he thought. "So, what do you think?" he asked gruffly, jerking his head in the direction of the new headmaster. "Seems all right?" Dimitri was glad there would be no punishment for Klyks this year for losing the chip contest. It seemed so lucky and unlikely that it would happen two years in a row, but he wasn't complaining. The teenager glanced down at the food she was eating, remembering a comment she'd made when he'd last seen her.

"Better than hospital food?" he asked. Dimitri wasn't really all that good at small talk. He and Lena were still in a weird space; last time they'd really talked, they'd argued. It was easy to forget all of that now, though. The Koldovstoretz students were gone and Durmstrang's glory was going to be restored... or whatever the new Headmaster had said. He'd only been half listening after all. He'd never say it out loud, and he didn't really feel it when he hung out with his male friends and they talked crap about her and everyone else, but being with her now... he remembered that he'd missed her.

Thank Merlin for their luck. After Dimitri had told her that the Krovs had won the house cup again, Yelena had definitely not been looking forward to the first few weeks back at school but apparently there would be no punishment. For the second year in a row... They really had to do better this term as they surely wouldn't get so lucky a third time. But well, things were back to normal and as Klyk Vampira's duelling club captain she'd make sure that they'd earn enough chips to stand a chance against the Krovs.

Some movement to her left made her turn and her hazel eyes widened a little when she realised who had just slid in beside her. That was new. During the day they usually spent time together in their little group of friends, not really talking just to each other, and she couldn't remember the last time he had willingly approached her while others were watching. Sure, the fact that they hadn't talked at all during the last few months she'd spent at Durmstrang last term hadn't really helped. Maybe she should even be thankful for her illness. To be honest, she wasn't sure if they'd talk again hadn't she been injured.

"Yes, I think so." Lena glanced at the new headmaster with his dark blond hair and handsome face and a small smirk appeared on her face. Definitely alright. "I bet he's a former Klyk." It wasn't fair but favouritism had always been a big part of the school's culture. It reminded her of the one time Professor Zafirova had caught them in the middle of the night with a bottle of vodka and they hadn't even lost a single chip. "That was a rhetorical question, right?" After stroking a strand of red hair our of her face, the Klyk popped a raisin covered in chocolate into her mouth. "So, how was the rest of summer school?"

"Definitely," Dimitri said, referring to Lena's comment about the headmaster being a former Klyk during his time at Durmstrang. "I'm not complaining," he added flatly, resting one elbow on the brown wooden table. The teenager watched as his friend popped a chocolate into her mouth. He didn't really like dessert food. He didn't have a sweet tooth like a lot of his friends. "It was fine," he said with a slight shrug. Pretty shit, actually, he thought. Too much sun, too much sand. He'd avoided as many of the activities as he could but he'd still somehow ended up with his fair share of sunburn and sand through his hair. Ugh. The black-haired boy almost shuddered at the thought.

"How was hospital?" he asked in return, waiting for her to finish her food so they could walk back to the common room together. He was sure Lev would comment on Dima's little visit to this end of the table later, but he wouldn't have to deal with that for some time. It felt kind of nice to just be casually near her, but he was sure that as soon as anything that had happened last year came up in conversation the vibe would be different. Maybe they'd just never talk about any of it, he thought, flicking his blue eyes over her face for a moment. That did seem to be the way they did things.

"It was fine," Yelena replied, sarcasm oozing from her voice. She knew him well enough to know that he'd probably hated summer school. The heat, the people... To be honest she couldn't really imagine him relaxing at some beach on a carribean island. She, on the other hand, would have swapped her time at the hospital with his time at summer school immediately. Cocktails at the beach, tanned guys in swim shorts... Yes, she could definitely think of a worse way to spend her summer. Knowing that he wouldn't appreciate it, she didn't say anything about it, though.

"Believe me when I tell you that it was one of the best days in my life when I could finally leave that room again." The redhead had spent the last two weeks of vacation with her grandparents and her grandma's cooking had definitely helped that she didn't look like a ghost anymore. Lena still hadn't gotten her initial weight back but the dark rings under her eyes had almost disappeared and what was still there was covered by make-up. After her first visit, Miha had brought her some more beauty products and she was still grateful for her friend's support.

After popping the last raisin into her mouth, the girl looked at Dima again, a questioning expression on her face. "Do you want to leave and get back to the common room? Or shall we take advantage of the fact that there's no curfew today?" She didn't know where she wanted to go but going back to the common room where everyone else would be sounded kind of boring.

"A fine time indeed," he agreed with a slightly quirked eyebrow and an otherwise blank expression. She'd probably see the smile in his eyes, though. There was something that felt familiar about joking about something like that with her. It almost seemed strange that so much time had passed since they'd been... well, whatever they'd been. Close or whatever. He nodded at her comment, looking away down the table for a moment. Lev Leskov caught his eye but before he could catch whatever his housemate was mouthing to him - probably something obscene - Dimitri turned back to his redheaded friend.

The teenager had been planning on walking back to the common room with Yelena but now that she'd brought up the curfew thing, he was considering it. "You wanna go outside or something?" He asked gruffly. Subconsciously, the black-haired boy ran a hand over his breast pocket. He could do with a cigarette. After not having a single one all day, he could do with forty-two cigarettes honestly. "Got your wand?" he asked. As she well knew, outside of these stone walls the environment was cold and unforgiving. The boy got to his feet and waited for her to follow suit before they started walking.

"Sure, why not." She noticed him touching his breast pocket and her red lips curled into a smirk. If she told him he was addicted he'd probably deny it but by now she doubted that he could just stop. Lena still had no idea why people smoked. Maybe it was somehow relaxing but it was also so so disgusting. She remembered the one time she'd tried it in Dimitri's presence and she'd reacted horribly. After almost coughing her lungs out she'd had the taste in her month for hours and she couldn't remember how often she'd brushed her teeth afterwards. Dima had made fun of her for a while and she doubted that he'd ever stop mentioning it.

Yelena nodded and after waving at her friends and receiving some ambiguous looks, she followed him out of the grand hall. She knew exactly what they were thinking, it was nothing new, but once again she also knew that whatever they were thinking wouldn't happen. He was different than all other male friends she had and sometimes she wondered if he ever saw anyone in a romantic light. Dimitri surely wasn't into boys, that was something she was sure about, but at the same time she had no idea if he was into girls. She had never seen him with anyone and only the fact that he'd reacted in such a bad way when she'd dated Tomasz last year had made her think that he could feel jealousy.

They left the building and she let the cold air hit her for a few seconds before she raised her wand and worked a heating spell. It was dark outside, only the moon was illuminating the grounds. It was pretty, really. "Feels weird to still be a sixth year," Lena broke the silence after a while, looking up at her friend. "Did I tell you that they promoted me to duelling club captain now that Sabina is tsaritza?"

The outside air was not cold in a pleasant way. It was cold in a way that nipped at Dimitri's bare cheeks and almost burned with its intensity. He was pale as anything, with sharp cheekbones and a permanent scowl. Dimitri suited dark clothes and heavy boots and stone walls. This environment fitted him perfectly, but even for the Russain boy who despised summer, the wind was too cold. He was thankful when she performed her heating charm. He could have done it, of course, but she'd always been better at heating charms and his wand was in his pocket anyway.

Aside from the eerie, swelling sound of the cold air rushing around them, it was strangely quiet out here after the noise of the hall. Dimitri instinctively went for a cigarette; he felt like he'd been waiting for it all day. Luckily, the boy's lighter was charmed to resist the wind, so he only had to try it twice before the spark took and he was inhaling warm smoke. Dimitri waited a short moment to respond to her, savouring the familiar taste of smoke for a moment before the wind snatched the smoke from his lungs. "No you didn't," he said. He almost made a crack at how he hadn't been made klyk tsar, again, but he refrained. He wasn't feeling particularly jovial.

Briefly, Dimitri wondered how she felt about being dueling captain. How she felt about duels in general. After the events of last term, it was hard for him not to imagine her in the hospital bed whenever he thought about duelling. A part of him still wanted to break whoever had done that to her, but the piece of shit was probably back at that mudblood school again. "Happy about that?" he asked shortly, flicking his pale eyes to her and then back to the long stretch of white snow before them.
