"This was my favourite place in the whole school," she informed him, not moving any closer. "I didn't want to ruin it by associating it with some stupid boy I'd only date a couple of weeks."

Only vaguely cognizant of her discomfort, he waded across the water towards her, parting the clouds of bubbles. Rachel's dating life in high school was as mysterious to him as her work, and he was trying to piece the conflicting parts of her together. "So... You dated around a lot?

Her eyes narrowed, tension at their corners. "I dated nine boys at school, and most of them are dead or locked up now," she said quietly. "It was a lifetime ago."

"Oh...." He hadn't been expecting that kind of answer. This time, he picked up in her discomfort, and his gaze averted from hers and he stopped just short of intimate take with her. "So... That's why you think I'm gonna find someone else, right?"

Lips parting, she had no idea what to say for a moment. It hadn't occurred to her to think about it that way; she hadn't thought of herself that way in so long that it almost seemed laughable. "I guess that's one of the reasons," she said finally. "Mostly I just think you can do better."

"No one's better for me." He said with conviction, the kind of blind conviction that only the young possess, and he closed the distance between them, his touch skimming against her as his arms encircled her.

She didn't remember what it was like to feel such absolute certainty about something; the older she got, the more Rachel realised she didn't know, though she could at least be confident that almost anyone at all would be better for Freddy than her.

Recognising the futility of reason and treacherously unwilling to give up the time they still had, she clung to him in the embrace and rested her head against his shoulder. "I love you," she whispered, without cynicism or doubt.

Coaxing her with soft caresses, his nose nuzzling against her cheek, he angled her face to his and kissed her slow but ardent. As if the chemistry of their bodies could erase every trace of uncertainty between them.

It should have concerned her that they solved their disagreements this way, but his touch could make her forget - sometimes mid-sentence - whatever was bothering her, and it was no different now. She looped her arms up around his neck as she kissed him, and buoyant in the deep water, wrapped her legs around his hips until the heat between them far surpassed the warmth of the bath. High on the wall, the painted mermaid watched them hungrily.

Wrapped in the warmth of the bath, the minutes slipped by until they had exhausted their desires. Magic had solved some of the problems posed by underwater intimacy, but unfortunately for the mermaid, the thick clouds of bubbles concealed most of the good parts.

Cuddling together in the afterglow, Freddy asked, "is it weird being back here again?'

She traced patterns on his chest in the foam. "Not really," Rachel said slowly. "I was so different back then...when I think about it, it's like remembering someone else's life. Someone I probably wouldn't like very much now," she added on a huff.

"Why not?" He asked softly. It was hard for him to imagine any incarnation of Rachel that he wouldn't like.

Her tongue feathered over her lower lip, and her gaze flicked away from his for a moment before returning. "You have to understand...it was rare for the Sorting Hat to put anyone in Slytherin who wasn't a pureblood before the war. If you ended up there, everything became about proving your worth; you had to be better in every way than your peers just to have them accept you, and that didn't leave a lot of room for empathy or kindness."

"Mean girl stuff. Starting rumours, causing drama, putting people down. Anyone that was different in any way was fair game." Her tone was soft, regretful. "Even if you apologise for it later, that kind of damage can't always be undone."

A heavy silence followed her admission as he imagined what their relationship, or lack thereof, would've been like if they'd been the same age.

"... Yeah, I guess so."

She watched him uneasily. "What -" her muscles stiffened unconsciously as if expecting a fully body blow. "What are you thinking?"

Though he spoke carefully, he couldn't eliminate the ominous tinge in his tone. "I was thinking... I know some people like you. I mean, like your teenage self."

There was no point in trying to feign ignorance; Rachel had a fairly clear idea of what school must be like for him based on how his personality had been shaped by it, and how she'd seen people react to him that night. She looked him in the eyes. "I imagine you do," she said quietly. "I imagine that you wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire, and that if we'd been the same age, you'd feel the same way about me." She brushed her hair back behind her ear with nervy fingers. "Is that about the size of it?"

Gaze gaze averted from hers, his shielded by rays of spiked lashes. An awkward silence floated between them, and then he said, "I'd... probably wait a few seconds first and then put them out."
