Who wouldn't want Christmas muffins?

Who: Emma and James
When: Friday after classes, week before the game between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw
Where: outside the Great Hall
What: MUFFINS!!!!

Emma made her way down to the Great Hall after she'd dropped her books off in her dorm. She'd not been surprised to find her cat no where in sight.  Izzie was probably around spreading Christmas cheer with her colorful ribbon collar and her playful disposition.  The hall was deserted and James was no where to be seen.  This didn't bother Emma and she sat on the stone floor, looking up at the giagantic Christmas trees that had taken up residence in the entry way the day before.  She loved Christmas, the smells, the sounds, the music.  She loved to spend time with her family and relax.  This Christmas, she knew, would be different without her father and her aunt. But she hoped that she and her mum could create some new traditions.

She nodded. "Yes. I'm looking forward to it." Emma smiled, breaking off a piece of muffin and eatting it. "I can't wait to be able to cook again. I forgotten how much I miss it." It would be odd to cook for two instead of the four she was used to, but it was Christmas. She could handle that.

"I suppose you are as well?"

James shook his head a bit, then thought and shrugged. "Well, as far as I know, I'm staying here. It all depends on if Remus is staying or not. Can't leave him here by himself after all!" He munched on a piece of muffin and smiled. "Besides, I think my mum secretly likes to get rid of me." He laughed a bit, thinking of the time he set booby traps around the house just for fun.

"It sounds like you'll be having a smashing time, though! I never knew you were a chef, Emma."

"That's sweet of you, keeping Remus company." Emma smiled softly, returning her attention to her muffin for a moment before he spoke again. She laughed softly. "I'm sure that's not the case, James. She probably misses you terribly." Emma smiled warmly.

She flushed softly. "I wouldn't go that far, but I find cooking very soothing. And besides, it's nice to cook for people who appreciate it."

"I try," he said with a wink. "Remus is one of my best mates... I'd do anything for the lad." He finished off his half of the eggnog muffin and smiled. "And my mum loves Remus, so she'd want me to keep him company as well. She'll give me up for the holidays for that."

James nudge Emma a bit when she flushed and snickered. "I'll bet you're a wonderful cook and are just being modest again. You can always experiment on me, if you'd like."

"Your friends seem like they're more like family to you," she said with a smile. It was a wonderful trait to have, to love one's friends so well. The only friend she felt that for was sitting there with her, James, the big brother she'd always wanted.

Emma laughed at the nudge. "Oh, good. I have a new test subject." She grinned at him.

"Oh most definitely. My friends are the most important people to me," he said with a nod. He knew they were the people that would always be there for him through thick and thin. And Emma was certainly being added to the list. She just had a way of always cheering him up that he found endearing.

"Anytime you need me, Emma, my stomach and I will be there!" he said with a snicker.

She grinned. "It's a wonderful quality to have in a friend." Emma felt something rub against her leg and looked down to see Izzie. "Well, look who decided to join us?" Izzie went over to greet James now that her mistress had seen her.

She laughed again. "I will remember that."

"Hey Izzie!" James said happily. He leaned over and gave her a pet, smiling at the purring little cat. "She's certainly a friendly thing." He sat back up and took the last of the muffins, the house specialty: blueberry.

"Care to share the last one?"

"What can I say? She has good taste in friends." She grinned at James. Izzie purred and jumped up to Emma's lap and then the table, curling up in a ball between the two friends. Emma reached out and scratched her between the ears.

"Sure. I love blueberry. And these are the best. Mine don't even compare."

James gave Izzie a quick tickle under her chin, then quickly split the last muffin between himself and Emma. He floated Emma's half over to her and grinned. "Ha, she makes a lad feel special."

"And I'm sure your muffins are delicious," he said as he took a bite.

Izzie purred and nuzzled his hand with her head. "I'm sure she does. I know she makes me feel better when I'm down. She seems to always know when I need her with me." She smiled at her kitten.

James was a sweetheart. "I'll have to make you a batch so you can compare."

"Well," James noted, "it must be good to have her around, then." He smiled and munched on the muffin, savoring the blueberry flavor. "I've been bugging my mum for an owl, myself. Think one would be dead useful."

"And I can't wait to try some Emma muffins!" He smiled and winked at her.

"An owl? That would be useful. I used to have one..." Her voice trailed off a little and Izzie cocked her head. Emma reached over and scratched her between the ears. "But no owl can compare to my Isabella."

Emma laughed softly. "It'll be the first thing I make when I go home."
