Her lips were warm against the cool temperature of the day, the pressure of it was nice, and his lips felt tingly too. Kind of like before. It was a short kiss, he pulled back and looked at her, a smile on his face, sharing in the slight embarrassment but trying to cover it with confidence. He was in his element on the pitch, with the win, with Tomie.

The question caught him off guard and his eyes darted back to hers for a moment before sliding away, covering the moment with a forced confident half-laugh and smile. "No," he said, as he stepped back and felt a breeze sweep between them. "Just giving you a chance to kiss your future captain," he joked and then winked at her. (He had obviously definitely not practiced all summer to perfect the confidence of using a wink). "Cmon," he said, taking a step away. "I'll get you a butterbeer at Hogsmeade," he said, more statement than offer, assuming she was just as thirsty as he was after the game.

She felt a bit disappointed that he moved away, even though she wasn’t really sure if she wanted to kiss him again. Right now, anyway. She did want to talk more, though. She’d like to be able to read his mind right, really understand what he’d been thinking just now. They’d never kissed before when they weren’t ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’; Tomie had never kissed anyone outside of those clear bounds, with the exception of Benny, one time, and that had been entirely different.

She wondered, watching him take a second step back in the snow, if maybe they’d outgrown the kiddy way that they’d ‘dated’ in the past. The first time he’d asked her out was when he’d asked her to the dance at camp at the end of first year, but she’d been banned from that for punching a yearmate in the face. The second time, she’d basically laid it out for him and said that if he asked her that she’d say yes; it had been valentine’s day or just a little before, right after that whole Shelby kiss thing... The third time, he’d asked her out by note. She’d circled ‘yes’ with a pleased half-smile on her face, sent the note back to him across the classroom with her wand.

“Co-captain,” she corrected, still playful despite the more thoughtful reflection going on in her head. Well, if he asked her again, she wouldn’t mind, she supposed. He would ask her again, right? Why else would he have kissed her? It might be nice to see how it went this round, now that they were both a bit older and more grown up (a tiny part of her did register that most did not consider fourteen or fifteen to be a very grown-up age, but. Whatever.)

Her heart was still beating kind of quickly as she turned, letting him move past her as she fell into step beside him this time, instead of walking ahead, backwards. “‘Kay,” she said, the smile still on her face, too. She gave his shoulder a gentle little bump with her own. She might have reached for his hand if hers were free; it felt appropriate for the moment. “Feedback on your plays over butterbeer,” she said, like they were shaking hands.

"Deal."

Later

At the Three Broomsticks, they had each had a butter beer so far and JR had ordered two snacks, mostly because he wanted them and the smell from the table next to them was enticing, but he wasn't hungry hungry.

"Think they'll let us be on the same team next scrimmage?" JR asked her with a conspiratorial grin. They were too good together, how could someone not possibly have a problem with that? Obviously the teams were weighted too much in their favor, and JR and Tomie would of course use that to their advantage. He smiled to himself, smug, happy thoughts circling his brain.

"I have tickets to the Griffins game over break. You could have one of the extras.. if you want," he offered casually.

Tomie was starting to get hungry. Like, hungry, hungry. She’d had a big breakfast, but between breakfast and now she’d only had a muesli bar and a banana, which was like half her usual between-breakfast-and-lunch snacklist. She bounced her knee under their table impatiently, then took a sip of her dwindling butterbeer.

“They’ll probably make us captains,” she answered coolly, her lips pursed to contain an arrogant smirk. She gave him a sidelong look, her eyes conveying everything anyway. It was a bit of a reference to their conversation earlier, but mostly it was just typical smugness at the fact that they’d been better than everyone they’d played with today. They’d probably be split up next time to avoid the aggressive defeat, right? Be made captains so they could pick the teams? Beating him like that sounded fun, too… But it couldn’t be as fun as today, she didn’t think.

"Huh?" she said, turning and looking at him properly now, eyebrows raised. "This break?" she asked, her finger pointing straight down, poking the table's surface on the this.

"Well..." he said as she made a comment about making them captains and he glanced across the room at the server with a tray full of foaming butterbeers. "At least once of would be, probably." He gave her a sidelong glance and a quick grin before he took another sip from his mug.

He had missed bantering with Tomie like this. Glad for more than one reason that she wasn't dating Timmy anymore. He'd never make captain on any team he was on, JR didn't think. He had an errant thought wondering what Wyatt Sr would say about Timmy's style of play and technique.

Tomie tapped the tabletop, JR tracking the movement with his dark eyes as he nodded and took in her raised brow expression. "Yeh, this break," he said, tapping his fingers too, imitating her. "Why, do you already have tickets to go otherwise?" he asked, the first thought coming to his mind, a curiosity, a secret envy he wouldn't ever admit to.

He was teasing her; she shook her head, her smile shifting from away from smirk to just amused and easy. “If you got made captain you’d pick me first anyway,” she said, fully confident. If he denied it, they’d both know he was wrong, so it’s kinda like she’d win either way. “It’d defeat the purpose,” she added helpfully.

“Nah,” she answered casually, to the already having tickets thing. Oh god, was he asking her on a date? How was she supposed to say yes when her parents were so strict about that sort of thing? They were alone at a table in a pub here, but this would never happen at home. Not unless her parents had known his parents for like a decade or more, at least. And even then…

“I just might be busy, I’ll have to check the dates,” she said with a bit of a shrug. She tried not to make it sound like she didn’t want to go; it was pretty late notice, and plausible that she’d be busy. Tomie sat back in the chair, trying to work out if he’d meant it in a datey way or not. She looked away from him.

“Uh..” she said, the sound escaping her lips as she accidentally caught sight of Tommy Quinn, looking at them from across the pub. Their eyes met briefly before he glanced away at the same time Tomie did. Ugh, how awkward, she thought. She felt the urge to apologise to JR, but shot him a bit of an apologetic grimace and shrugged again instead.

His brows raised and he fully wanted to debate that confident statement, just to play devil's advocate. But, they both knew the truth. So he just left it at an ambiguous shrug, not feeling generous enough to tell her she was right. "Guess we'll see."

"Yeah, not a big deal either way, I invited a bunch of people from our year and the year above so it's cool if you can go, but no worries if not," JR said before taking a sip of his butterbeer, his tone cool and casual. A practiced look of ease on his shoulders.

JR followed her gaze across the pub, his brows raising as he saw Timmy. His eyes darted quick to Tomie to see how she was reacting to the attention. Did she still have feelings for him? Tomie turned to look at him but JR couldn't read the expression on her face, what did that shrug mean? "How do you feel about the big win against..." he nodded at Timmy. And he hoped the bloke saw the gesture, saw the smirk on his lips as he thought of their big win.
