Marisa walked into Professor Higgs classroom wand at her side with a severe look on her face. She walked across the room in a determined walk. She looked around for him and finally shouted "Professor Higgs are you in here?" She sat down. "Mr. Higgs you have no idea who you are dealing with I suggest you come down and talk with me."
Lifting his head from the desk he was lying or more like sleeping on, Steve looked around with tired eyes wondering what had awoken him and then a stern voice came from the classroom that was attached to his office . "Oh Merlin" He muttered under his breath as he walked towards the door and swung it open staring at Marisa Brant. "Keep your voice down" Steve told her while looking around his classroom quickly "I know why your here and that reason is just a load of crap" He said harshly "I have no idea why a girl would come up with such a sick plan because i rejected her" Steve said loosening his tie.
She walked over to him very gracefully with a keen eye. "But Professor Higgs the girl had a bruise on her arm." She said when she got to his desk. "I asked her to do the Reparo spell and she burst into tears." She eyed him up and down. "She said you performen the cruciatus curse on her and that she performed it on you is this true?" She asked very persuasively.
Steve stared directly at her "Yes, I have a huge scar down my chest because of her" He said with a cold edge and then ran a hand through his dark hair and shook his head "I can't believe this" Steve muttered and then looked at his desk "That is correct, I did use the cruciatus curse on her only because it was the only way i could make her stop using it on me and it gave me time to stop the blood coming from my chest..but it only lasted a few seconds and i honestly didn't mean it..it happened so suddenly" He told her in all honestly with a guilty look in his eye.
She looked at him with sad eyes and walked closer to him so they were just inches apart. "Oh is that so." She said very softly. "She's leaving Hogwarts. She told me." She looked at him. "She's now afraid of you." Marisa touched his shoulder and looked away. She stepped back and and sighed.
Steve stayed silent not really knowing what to do and he look towards Marisa "Please say you believe me" He begged her with pleading eyes, he had never felt so vulnerable and these last few hours have been rather hectic. "She's leaving?" Steve said his eyes widening in shock, there was defiantly something planned Aimi would never give up so easily and especially not be afraid of him.
"Yes professor Higgs she's leaving." Marisa said. "Now the question on whether I believe you or not Professor Vardane has told me a lot about Aimi so yes I guess I do believe you." Marisa said. "Now what started all of this? Why did Aimi cast the curse on you?"
Steve let a breath of air escape his lips as he leaned on his desk silently thanking Tarquin in his mind. "Thanks" He said with a soft smile finally relaxing from all the stress and thought back to the previous meeting with Aimi. "Well," Steve began, "Long Story cut short, She got in trouble so i gave her a detention and Aimi tried to get herself out of it by coming on to me but i rejected her and she got annoyed and cursed me" He finished with a shrug "It all happened within 15 minutes" Steve explained to Marisa.
"Oh so she tried to get you under her charm." Marisa said. "Now Aimi said she was going home wherever that is. But she did say she would write to me." She looked at Higgs "Tarquin also said you weren't the type to start it and resisting her charm well that's impressive." Marisa moved closer to him "Now tell me Higgs are you married?"
"Indeed" Steve said with a nod as he listened to Marisa contently.He wasn't really worrying over anything anymore but once she complimented him and asked him if he was married Steve smiled and shook his head "No, Are you?" He asked politely.
"No I'm not. Well actually that would be a lie I was married. My husband divorced me 1 year after I had my son Oliver." Marisa said in a sad tone. "It wasn't because we hated each other it was because he wanted to go off with the Order and he let me go because he didn't think he was my "top" priority. I guess he thought I loved my son more then him." Marisa said looking very sad.
Steve had the deepest simpathy for Marisa "Whoever you where married to must be crazy considering he let you go" He told her with a sad expression "I'm sure you can do far better" Steve reassured her. If Steve was ever to get married he would never leave his wife or worse child....what kind of person does that he thought ti himself silently.
She smiled at him. "Well we stopped having sex and we stopped kissing actually. Things were very distant for us so I guess he just felt the urge to leave." She sighed and looked at him. "So what about you any serious relationships?"
Steve understood "Yeah, I know how you feel my last girlfriend kinda went like that too" He explained to her with a shrug "But i got over it after a while" Steve said. Looking at Marisa he gave her a lopsided smile "No actually, What about you?" Steve asked curiously.
