It seemed that luck struck twice within a week - Samantha and Amber had managed to make some time to hang out again on Thursday, two days before Amber's birthday. That afternoon coincided with Amber's rest day, of course, as well as Samantha's scheduled day off for the week. The pair had set about walking around town, with no set course in mind, just wanting to take in the feeling of freedom instead of forcing themselves to do something. Or so Amber insisted, at least, outright refusing tagging along with Samantha on a second fishing trip.
The two eventually walked up a street with a few seemingly Muggle kids (from their assumptions) playing with a rugby ball. Eventually, one threw the ball far too high; it flew all the way to the roof of a nearby house. as it rolled downwards it got stuck in its gutters on the edge instead of falling, resulting in a collective whine and groan about their misfortune.
"Hey! We can get that for 'em, right?" Amber nudged Samantha's elbow whom proceeded to survey the scene - the house had a rather tall foundation and she was unsure if she could make the climb without giving away the fact she wasn't exactly a human.
"You could try, I guess..." It would make more sense for Amber to give it a shot - always the daredevil, people would believe it more if she retrieved the object. Nevertheless, as she ran up to the wall of the house to try to give herself some momentum and boost herself upwards, she always fell consistently short of the roof - it didn't help that the house was in a rough state, conditioning the quality of her ascent to begin with.
"Damn it." Amber gave up after her third attempt, looking up at one end of the ball sticking out of the roof. Reaching down to grab a loose rock, the Spencer aimed and threw it at the offending ball; her plan backfired as the ball didn't dislodge itself, instead withdrawing further into the gutter from the impact. For a moment she shook her head in disappointment and considering breaking into the property as it was abandoned as far as she could tell, but then her eyes widened as she had an idea.
A much, much better idea.
"Hey Sammich, come with me." Before Samantha could protest, her wrist had been grasped by the cousin and she was being dragged around the house and to its back. Looking over the shoulder while she let Amber have her way, she frowned as she noticed the kids giving up and walking away from their playing space. Once around the back of the house, she was let go.
"Boost me up!"
"What?" She looked up at the roof, and at Amber. Was she insane? "What if someone sees?"
"Do ya see somebody around here? C'mon, just a little boost." Samantha was a Veela - surely, her increased strength would make for an easier time making the climb. Begrudgingly, the Bourke obeyed her cousin's request - after looking around, of course, and spotting nobody in the surrounding back lawns.
"Okay, okay..." Placing her hands in the appropriate position, Samantha waited for Amber to place her foot down on her palms. "On three." She said once the girl did. "One, two... Three!" With a rough push upwards, Samantha gave Amber a sizable amount of momentum - so much so the Spencer would've equated it to flying.
"WHOA!" Came the yell as the girl hurtled through the air, so much so she managed to land on her feet atop the various broken shingles, crouching momentarily to keep her balance with the inclination. She ignored the shushing sound the Veela sent her way and gave her a thumbs up instead before deftly dashing to the other side of the roof, grabbing the lone rugby ball, and aiming it towards the general direction of the children walking away.
"HEY, KIDS!" She yelled out at the same time Samantha was making her way around the house. "CATCH!" Just as she had spoken and the children had turned around, she threw the rugby ball at them with frightening accuracy. One of the kids caught it and they erupted in cheers and gratitude, soon returning to their game; Samantha then waited in front of the house for Amber to decide to get down, an event that never came.
"What are you doing?" She inquired as the Spencer seemingly hesitated to come down.
"I'm stayin' here a while! The view's great!" Samantha's eyes widened in exasperation - for all the times Amber's love for altitude could strike, that wasn't the best one. "Plus, wanna bet this is a haunted house? We should totally explore it!"
"Amber, get down, please..." The Bourke was very close to kneeling and praying to all that was holy to send her help to deal with her cousin's... antics.
