Felix was floating about the room, passing through walls and cupboards in a daze of boredom. Lily was busy with details for the upcoming cocktail party which to a ghost was perhaps the most tedious thing to do when they should be out causing havoc, not that she ever let him do that anyway.
He tried to keep himself amused with making spooky screams and wailing as well as making 'bloody' messages appear on the walls, but it was failing pretty horribly. Felix hovered over Lily's shoulder to critique her work, "You know, all these fancy parties you people throw are soo boring... there's no blood, no death, no screaming, and most of all no gratuitous nudity and sex. You people are not fun at all, and remind me again why i can't make more public appearances? Your boy toy Lance seemed to be fine, considering." He smirked and flew in front of her face.
Try as she might, Lily was having a devil of a time ignoring Felix. Her uncle was out of town until the 18th, when he would be hosting his annual summer cocktail party. But of course, since he was gone and her aunt with him, it was up to Lily to get everything in order for the entire party. And Merlin forbid if she made a mistake... Which is why she was desperately wishing the crazy ghost was solid enough to smack into silence. "Felix, for Merlin's sake, go away! I have to get this done and done right! Can't you go terrorize the slaves or something?"
She had to admit the specter had a point though. There was nothing that the petite brunette hated more than the society parties and balls and rubbish that her uncle dragged her to, well except maybe her uncle himself. Shaking her head to regain her concentration, Lily scowled in frustration at the ghost and put down the to-do list she had been going over. "You can't make more public appearances, you idiot, because it would royally screw up my plans! Making Uncle Lionel angry at me because you decided to follow me around and scare people to death would only be bad for both of us. And I am not discussing my boyfriend with the likes of you."

Felix gave an overly dramatic sigh, "You are just no fun, and besides the slaves have seen me too often to be scared anymore."
He hovered around the ceiling for a bit, bobbing up and down through the floor. The downside to being dead was of course there was so little to do, especially when he was attached to the little chunk of Hogwarts stone Lily kept and couldn't simply roam and terrify at will, not could he indulge in the torture and killing of his time as a death eater. It was all very depressing, especially the no killing part.
"What the devil are you working on, anyway? What is so important that you need to block out everything else? I rather like to think that my point of view is much more interesting than whatever is on that little bit of paper you've been pouring over."
The petite brunette sighed and pinched the bridge of her nose, trying to head off the headache that was starting to form behind her eyes. Remind her again why she agreed to 'adopt' the ghost? "It's a list of things I need to accomplish before Uncle Lionel comes back, for the party this weekend. It needs to be done correctly, or I will get beaten to a bloody pulp, as you already know. Therefore, I am trying to ignore your incessant chattering and idiotic antics so I can concentrate on where to start, and thus try to prevent the beating I will probably still receive when my uncle returns," Lily added, watching the specter float lazily around the ceiling. She did feel sort of guilty for not taking him out more, but until Uncle Lionel was taken care of and out of her life, there was just too much at stake for Lily to risk being linked to Felix publicly. Honestly, it would just be too funny, in her mind anyway, to take him to a Death Eater meeting and let him run loose. With a reputation like his, and with many of the same members still in the organization as when he was alive, the Death Eaters' reactions alone would be highly amusing. Of course, she wasn't going to tell him that though. Merlin, he would think she actually didn't mind having him around...

Felix rolled his eyes and started fading in and out at random as he went about the room, "A shame your uncle never wanted to meet me in person while i was alive, probably would have taught him the real reason people wake up screaming at night when i was done with them." he smirked a bit, "Poor, old codger, has to hide behind beating his niece for doing nothing wrong because he's scared. I will get to meet him right? Please tell me i get to meet your uncle."
Felix passed through her desk again and gave her a wild grin. He had followed Lily's instructions so far simply because if he misbehaved she'd seal his stone in a box for a while to trap him there and since he rather enjoyed being loose he begrudgingly did as he was told. For someone as unstable as Felix was in life, such things did not come easily and he was more than ready to perform some more nefarious acts toward anyone he could think of.
The petite brunette couldn't conceal her vicious smirk in response to Felix's enthusiasm. "Oh of course you get to meet him, Felix," Lily replied. "When the plan is ready, you can have all the fun you want with the bastard. Just don't kill him; I can't blackmail a dead man," she added just as evilly. She knew she would never be able to take her uncle in a duel, so blackmail was really her only option to be rid of him. As much as she wanted him dead for the years of abuse she had endured at his hands, she didn't want to be convicted of murder and lose her future in the Imperium Guard. She had gone back and forth with Lance and Felix yesterday trying to find a way to kill the abusive bastard without any of them going to jail, and had come up short unfortunately. So unless Felix somehow developed poltergeist powers, Uncle Lionel would have to stay alive and be blackmailed into leaving her (and Lance) alone.

Felix let out a lengthy sigh, "You're no fun. Blackmail and espionage is not my style. I much prefer death and insanity."
He resumed his random floating and paused at a window where a pair of pigeons had roosted. A smile spread across his face and he darted through, wailing like a banshee as he did so, sending the bird fluttering like mad and falling from the ledge. He was laughing hysterically and came to rest above Lily's head.
He reached down to cause cold feelings around her head and neck and make her neck hairs stand on end, "Will you be done any time soon? I'm bored and feel like causing some mayhem. I know you don't like when i'm bored." Felix cackled and floated into the air again.
Perhaps it only spoke to her own madness that she found Felix's antics with the pigeon amusing, but Lily couldn't help the smile that quirked at her mouth. Instead of attesting to madness though, she liked to think the amusement came from seeing someone else suffer for once. When the ghost re-entered the room and began agitating her again, the petite brunette sighed exasperatedly and put down her quill. She was pretty much finished anyway; she might as well give the crazed specter what he so desperately wanted.
Pushing her chair back from her desk, shuddering when her head passed through Felix's hand, Lily sighed and said, resigned, "Come on, let's go." Heading downstairs to the servant's quarters, Lily located the butler (one of only two free workers that the Blakes employed) and gave him the list of things that needed to be done for the party. After making sure the man could handle the task, the former Ravenclaw headed for the foyer, holding out the small chunk of stone she wore around her neck, obviously expecting the ghost's cooperation. "Back in the rock. I'll take you to Diagon Alley for a bit. You can have two hours, then we're coming home and you'll let me finish my work, won't you?" she added with a stern look. Honestly, if she had wanted to be pestered constantly she would've just had a kid. At least they grow out of it...

Felix let out a victory whoop and circled in the air before diving back into the stone. A bit of fresh air was just what he needed, not that a ghost needed air, but it was always such a bother to be carried around in a little chunk of stone as opposed to moving freely and scaring the bejeezus out of anyone who crossed his path. It was not something he could avoid, however, so he took what was given to him.
"I suppose I can let you have your peace after our walk. After all, fair is fair." His disembodied voice echoed in her head from the stone as they walked along. There were few people Felix actually liked, but Lily had a style he could appreciate and her nearly homicidal plotting toward her uncle was always a plus.
Lily rolled her eyes at Felix's antics, sighing exasperatedly. truly, she didn't mind having the ghost around as much as she claimed she did, it was mostly her natural reaction of keeping people at arm's length that made her treat him like such a nuisance. Not that the ghost couldn't be quite the pest when he had a mind to, but the young Imperium Guard actually liked having Felix around. Merlin knew she could use both the company and his insight in dealing with her uncle. And besides, was there really anyone else she could discuss blackmailing her guardian with, who wouldn't think she was crazy/dangerous and report her to the authorities? Of course, she had Lance, but with her uncle being home often and the fact that she wasn't sure he wasn't checking her mail, she didn't get to see or talk to Lance as often as either of them would want.
Apparating to Diagon Alley, Lily paused a moment to regain her bearings as the momentary dizziness passed. Realizing she couldn't very well go wandering around looking like she was talking to herself, the former Ravenclaw pulled a piece of scrap paper out of her pocket and held it in front of her like a shopping list before addressing Felix. "I take it you want me to wander around until you find a Death Eater or a small child to terrorize like last time?" the brunette muttered under her breath, her amused tone still obvious. She had to admit, she enjoyed watching Felix with other Death Eaters; their terrified reactions were simply priceless.

Felix let out a peal of laughter inside her head at the offer. This girl knew exactly how to please him and offer exactly the activities he enjoyed the most, tormenting his former peers was fairly high among them. In life, not many of his fellow Death Eaters had met him in person, but all had heard of his exploits and those who had not met him counted themselves lucky.
In previous encounters with Death Eaters in his current form he had caused quite a few to run screaming from the room or spill food and drinks all over themselves. Those were the times he treasured.
"Let us go visit some of my former colleagues. I could use a good laugh at this point in time." Felix's giddiness was more than evident in his voice.
Lily couldn't help but smirk at the thought of the last time she and Felix had gone for a walk. He had guided her through Knockturn Alley, to the seedy bar he had frequented when he was alive. They had encountered three Death Eaters that Felix had remembered from years past. Grigori, Jones, and Bailey, if Lily recalled correctly, had been favorite targets of Felix's before his mysterious death at the Battle of Hogwarts. According to the ghost, they were morons who just wanted the status of Death Eater, not truly dedicated to 'mayhem, torture, and the like,' and he had taken great joy in bullying the weaklings. The looks on their faces when Felix appeared in that pub had left Lily smiling the whole rest of the day.
Deciding that would be as good a starting place as any, Lily began walking toward the entrance to Knockturn Alley. As she walked, the former Ravenclaw kept a sharp eye out for anyone she knew. The last thing she needed was an old schoolmate to decide to approach her, and end up scared senseless by Felix. Merlin forbid if one of her uncle's cronies saw her out and about either; they would be sure to report her to the madman. A few blocks from the Knockturn Alley entrance, Lily turned a corner and nearly collided with a dark-haired woman who came around at the same time. The woman's scowl was practically lethal, but Lily simply smiled and apologized before moving on. Muttering under her breath she asked Felix, "See any prospects yet?"
