You, my new friend, are missing out.

Ryder was pleasantly surprised that Jen decided to at least humor him and answer his questions. “Beet and cherry juice huh? Sounds...tasty?” He chuckled a bit. “I like cherry alright, but I am not sure about the beet part.” He reached across the table and poured himself an orange colored juice and sniffed it. He took a sip and nodded his head. “This one is good. It tastes like melons.”

Listening to Jen state that she did not like her previous school either made Ryder feel a little more at ease. Ryder nodded as she explained that her family moved around a lot. “Moving around a lot would be hard, but it also sounds kind of fun. I mean, did you get to live a lot of different places? I have just lived in California all of my life.”

Ryder was not expecting Jen to ask a question about Lexi, but before he could answer, another girl asked if he was a muggleborn and introduced herself as Zevalyn Ives. He hesitated to answer. Ryder was not sure how much of his family history he was ready to divulge to two classmates he had just met. He was a half-blood, and while that didn’t bother him one bit, he knew some people would look down on him for not being a pureblood. His grandparents had no problems with doing that. He wasn’t really suspicious of Zevalyn, since she just stated that she is a muggleborn, but he didn’t know how Jen felt about half-bloods. He decided to choose a safe answer.

“No, I am not muggleborn,” Ryder said turning to face Zevalyn and then turned towards Jen again, “but my best friend, Lexi, is a muggle. That is why she is not here. She doesn’t even know about magic. She thinks I transferred to another school because of my, uh, incident at my last school. Some jerk broke my new skateboard, and let’s just say I was a little angry.”

Ryder turned towards Zevalyn once again. “My name is Ryder Knight. Are you in the same year as us?” He hoped he wasn’t being too forward or rude, but the girl appeared to be older than them. He had noticed her earlier during orientation, but wasn’t sure if she was in their year or just transferring here to another year.

  • Zevalyn's head was spinning from everything she had seen on the tour. It wasn't even just the big things, either. Obviously the potions room looked . . . incredible, she supposed was a good word, as... more

        “Are you a muggleborn, too?” a girl asked out of nowhere. Jen glanced at her, preparing to frown disapprovingly in her direction - so maybe her conversation with Ryder hadn’t exactly been private,... more

          Not a muggleborn. Zevalyn felt a small rush of disappointment, and it showed on her face, but she consoled herself with the information that he at least knew - and was best friends with - a muggle,... more

            While Ryder was waiting for Zevalyn to respond to him, Jen seemed ecstatic about his reply and began asking questions about skating. Zevalyn raised her eyebrows at him, which left Ryder in the... more

              He brought his board with him. Ryder had a skateboard, and he had it with him. Why did her mom hate her? Why? His skateboard was in his dorm room, right now. Jen's skateboard was in her bedroom at... more
