"Oh that's really neat." Connor replied. Just because calligraphy wasn't one of his own talents didn't mean he looked down on it. Some people were like that.

Now Connor and Ivy had to fight to keep it open while the Quidditch players had combined into a full school team and were playing against other schools despite a waning interest among the students at Sonora.
