Merle stood alone and watched the students on the dance floor. She had never liked balls but gave the Yule ball a chance anyways. But for the last hour she had done nothing except walk around the room sipping her drink. She knew that she should really make some friends, but she just couldn't bring herself to be friendly and talkative. What was the point?

Ella sipped her drink and looked around the room. It was beautiful but it didn't quite have the same effect on you if you didn't have a partner. Ella looked around and saw two slytherin girls talking. She walked over to them
"Hey. Not dancing either then"

"Yes, plenty" Merle said sarcastically, "I trust you've been having fun?"

Suddenly a girl she did not know walked up to her and Cat.

"Hey. Not dancing either then." The stranger said.

"No..."Merle quietly answered, "I'm not much of a dancer." Merle didn't recognize the girl. Inside Merle was debating: be friendly....be antisocial....be friendly.... antisocial. It was a hard decision. She would have certainly prefered to simply stay within the comfort of her solitude, but she had to admit, she wished she had more friends.

"Hi," She said hesitantly, "I'm Merle."

"I'm looking for Draco actualy...I saw him come in but gods knows what he's doing, sadly it is probably something stupid." She nodded to the other girl. " We can't dance if we have no partners...I should fix that..." she scaned the room for people she knew. " Well, I'm going to flutter off again, and find Draco." she kissed Merle on the cheek. "I'll be back!"

Merle stared blankly as Cat ran off just as quickly as she had shown up.
"Okay..."

"Nice to meet you Merle. I'm Ella. That's a really nice name by the way" She added as an afterthought. It was also quite unusula.

"Thanks..." Merle bit her lip nervously. She really wasn't used to being social. She searched for something more to say. "Um.... it means 'blackbird'...my name that is..."

"Does it?" Ella said politely. Merle seemed a bit anxious.
"In what language?"

"I'm not really sure, it's just what my father always told me." Merle's limits had been pushed far enough in the social area, she didn't think she'd be able to take anymore tonight.
"Um...well, I should...probably go." Her eyes darted towards the exit.
"Uh... nice meeting you." She gave Ella a small smile as she left to worm her way through the crowd.

Hey everyone. This is the first time I've been able to get on a computer for more than 3 minutes in the past month or so. I'm at school right now, and I don't have a computer at home.

The hard drive on my computer if fried and my parents wont let me use their computer (cause they suck!) I apologize to anyone who may have needed me, and should be getting my hard drive fixed within the next month.
