So she had someone else here at Sonora. That was nice. At least she wasn't alone at this totally new place. Nico couldn't imagine being the first one at a brand new school mostly because Mikey had always been there to show him the ropes. "Was your cousin surprised to be magical too?" Nico asked. He didn't know how common or rare it was for cousins or siblings to be magical, but it was definitely convenient.

He tried to imagine what his mom would have felt back then when she found out she was magical. Uncle Jimmy probably would've been a little jealous that his younger sister was magical and he wasn't, but he and Grandpa didn't seem so bothered by it now. Nico didn't know anyone else on Mom's side of the family that was magical, so she would have been the only one. If Nico had been the only magical one in his family, he would have been so scared to go to a totally different school and have to keep it a secret from other people.

Nico shrugged at the question about his brother. "He said that Pecaris are the adventurous ones, so they have a lot of fun and throw fun parties. He really likes the other people in Pecari too, but it would make sense cause they must be more like him." Mikey made his house sound like a lot of fun, but he was good at making a lot of things sound really fun or entertaining even if in reality they weren't. Though, when Nico came to watch Mikey's concert performance last year, Pecari's had been the most fun to watch because of all the flying.

"He said the classes were hard too, but they're a lot more fun because we get to practice magic." There wasn't much else that Mikey had told him that hadn't been covered during orientation. Nico personally was looking forward to seeing what the classes were like. It sucked that they didn't have art or math or science, but learning about charms and potions seemed cool too. He couldn't wait to use his new wand.

    Jezebel relaxed tremendously when Nico expressed curiosity instead of distaste. On one hand, she would've preferred not to seem like such an oddity, but it was better than being ridiculed or... more
    • Thanks! — Nico, Mon Jul 8 19:08
      • Anytime! Jezebel Reed-Fischer, Mon Jul 8 23:08
        Jezebel wrinkled her nose, wondering what exactly Dathan had thought when he'd gotten his letter. "He must've been," she decided. "Neither of us knew magic was real, so I'm sure he was, but I don't... more

          Nico could guess that this girl wasn't too close with her cousin just from her reaction. He nodded, not sure how to respond. His own cousins were either older than him and not interested in hanging... more
