Sawyer Matheson
Getting to meet everyone
Fri Oct 7, 2016 16:28

When the first year Teppenpaws were called, Sawyer followed suit. As they made their way through the school, he looked around with wide eyes. The school was huge in comparison to the modest school he had attended back home. Of course, that school hadn’t needed to house students nor had it needed to worry about extracurriculars. Here, though, it was like a whole new world, one full of possibilities, and one that he was excited to be a part of.

Glancing at the other Teppenpaw students, he saw that there were only three other students – two girls and another boy, none of whom he had had the pleasure of talking to. However, it was the other boy that worried him more since they would be sharing a room for quite some time. He had never actually shared a room before. At home, he had a little sister and she obviously had a separate room. So, this would be a new experience. He hoped that the other boy wouldn’t mind that he had a guitar that he often played. Sawyer didn’t know what he would do without his music. He would be utterly lost.

As they continued, Professor Xavier mentioned that their House was close to the Hospital Wing. He thought this was rather convenient. Sawyer was a little accident prone. Mostly due to the inability to control his own limbs. His mom told him to have patience that he would outgrow the awkwardness, but that wasn’t something that quite reassured him at the moment. He hated that he was always making messes, because his brain and limbs didn’t quite communicate with each other or he would trip over his own feet like the right didn’t know the left was trying to walk. The only coordination seemed to only come when he was playing his guitar. He hated to think what might happen if he tried out for a sport like Quidditch.

A jig? Sawyer blinked in shock and horror. They had to dance a jig? There was going to be absolutely no way that he was going to be able to pull off dancing a jig. He didn’t care if Professor Xavier was telling them that it didn’t have to be good at it. Sawyer wasn’t worried about whether or not he would be good at it. He was worried about the fact that he wouldn’t be able to get the steps at all. He wasn’t concerned about remembering the steps. It was just like a beat. He had rhythm. Just not in his feet. He just knew he would try to shuffle and end up falling flat on his face. He knew he had no choice though and would have to make sure no one was around when attempting to get into his House. If he carried all his books, he would theoretically only have to get back in once a day. The options were not good.

Moving on, Sawyer entered the Common Room. It was warm and inviting. Instantly, he felt like he was at home. It even had a parent-like figure. Though, at least here, the punishment was detention rather than grounding. He had only been grounded once when he was in third grade and a couple of friends had convinced him it would be cool to jump off their roof. Thankfully, he hadn’t broken anything. Mostly due to his magic kicking in to keep him safe, but his parents had seen them and he had gotten grounded and so had his friends. It had ended up being an utterly boring week of being stuck in the house. He didn’t really want to ever repeat the experience.

Sawyer nodded his blonde head slightly in attention as Professor Xavier gave them other important information like where their dorms were and the people that they could go to for assistance. He was glad when it was over. He was beginning to feel tired. It was three hours later back home than it was here, but he didn’t want to be rude and ignore the others. Taking a seat on one of the couches, he waited, making himself busy with the map, while seeing if anyone would join him. When someone approached, he smiled, “Hey, I’m Sawyer Matheson. I can’t believe I’m really here. What about you?”
