Although you can technically define them as high school sweethearts, it wasn't sunshine and daisies the entire time. They met as first years, and experienced what they'd later try to claim was love at first sight. They crushed on each other for two years and a half, afraid to ruin the friendship they had. It wasn't until third year when Louis Spencer got his head out of his ass and asked Gwendolyn to be his girlfriend. It was a dramatic affair, really, because it was in the middle of a quidditch match, while he was defending her from the other team so she'd catch the snitch.
They only lasted a grand total of six months. It was an at school only kind of relationship, by any means toxic, and they both knew Louis wasn't going to be loyal for three months without actually seeing his girlfriend. Gwen didn't want to date someone who'd potentially cheat on her, and swiftly ended what they had going on. It took a total of one week for them to get over each other; Louis was a popular guy back home in Orlando. He could have anyone. And he did. That summer was a wild one; he ended up losing his virginity to an older chick, messed around with her cousin, and wound up hooking up with said cousin's brother.
It wasn't until seventh year that they got back together. Louis was a playboy - he'd won a reputation at Ilvermorny for sleeping with girls and tossing them aside. Until he met his match: Thunderbird beater Olivia Cobbold. She was a Hogwarts transfer in their year, and the only girl who outright rejected him. And Louis - well, Louis loved himself a good challenge, so he pursued her. It took him an entire year, but by the start of seventh, he'd managed to win her over and score a date. It didn't settle well with Gwendolyn. Sure, what they had was brief, and they'd grown apart after their nasty breakup, but she hadn't realized he'd ever settle down with anyone. Especially someone who wasn't her.
Gwendolyn was nothin if not intense. She confronted them after their first date, much to Olivia's humiliation and Louis' amusement. Could you really blame him? Here was his ex, going crazy over his date with another girl - a girl who had decided they'd ultimately be better off as friends. Although Gwen got what she wanted (Louis), that was an instance he never let her live down. Not when they moved in together fresh out of Ilvermorny, not when they signed on to play pro together, not when they got married, not when they had their children a year after.
First came Patrick, Sean, Peggy, Isaac, Theo, Freddie, Elyson, Andy, Madi, Noah and Eleanor Ella. Anyone who calls her Eleanor should get ready to be punched. Little Ella, as the baby of the family, was surrounded by love. She never had to worry if people liked her or not because she knew her family loved her no matter what. Although she is the baby, she never really played it up as much as some others did. She was too busy living life. Instead of being coddled, Ella was always trying to be independent. She played by herself and was perfectly content with it. At a very young age, she started dancing. While that can be done with others, dance was yet another thing Ella was fine doing alone. She only lasted a day in a dance camp before deciding it'd be a solo sport for her.
Ella had her first magical experience at age six when she witnessed a man abusing his dog. Never had so much fury been in a six-year-old. Next thing Ella knew, the rain gutter atop the man's roof fell directly upon his head. It knocked him out cold. Ella got a new dog that day. Dipz has been with her ever since. Even when it was time to move to England. Ella had no attatchments to America and was excited for a new adventure. It didn't take her long to adjust to the new location.
Upon turning eleven, Ella recieved her letter to Hogwarts. She was so excited to be going to school with her siblings. Ella knew Hogwarts would be good for her. She just had a feeling. Moving to England was a good thing, no matter what the surrrounding circumstances were. Ella was bound to make it positive anyway, but it's looking like she doesn't have to.
