Christabel was extremely relieved about the change of subject; she hadn't meant to blurt out quite as much as she had, especially to someone who was her own house prefect and Head Girl. She hoped that her enthusiasm for a subject that was taught by her head of house would make up for it, at least a little bit, but she was still grateful that Zevalyn had moved the conversation along.

As a half-blood, her parents had made it very clear to her at home that magical ability was just one of many talents a person could have. She hoped people here would agree, and that hope had increased a little more on learning that at Sonora, people of all backgrounds could be successful.
