I'll Stand By You

“Ballet? Yeah? My mom made us go to one. All the girls looked like they were dancing around on their tiptoes and the guys did abnormal jumps. I swear they must have been Wizards, but my mom told me they just had a lot of training,” Sawyer stated in regards to the ballet world. He hadn’t really enjoyed the performance and had been bored for most of it except for when they had flown around on the stage. No muggle should have been able to do that.

He nodded his head. “It’s called Krabby’s.” The name was self-explanatory that they served seafood. “We live near Cape Cod. That’s probably the easiest way to explain where we live. The restaurant’s right on the water. It’s great. We have an outdoor space where you can eat and you can see fish and stuff swimming around.” In the summer, he would get to eat lunch outside with the cool breezes.

“My mom helps sometimes and she experiements to add new dishes to the menu, but there’s a staff that does most of the work. She has to manage the place though. What about your family? What do they do?” Sawyer asked, curious to what Ayla’s family was like.

The left side of Sawyer’s mouth curved up in a half grin. “Sounds like a plan. Have you met anyone else here yet? It’ll be nice to start getting to know everyone. I like that it’s not a big school. I know some of the other magical schools are quite a bit larger. It seems like you can get lost in the crowd somewhere like that.” The Teppenpaw wasn’t a fan of crowds. He liked things more relaxed.

“Me neither. Mine is poplar with unicorn hair.” When he had received his wand, he was told that the poplar wood chooses wizards and witches of moral character. He wasn’t sure if that was true or not, but it was a nice thought. And the unicorn hair was supposed to produce consistent magic. He felt like that was also suited to him. It was interesting to think about the different wands that each person he met would have and why they would have that particular wand. “I think it’s a good wand.”

“I have a sister. Jenna. She’ll be coming to Sonora, not next year, but the year after.” He didn’t say too much more about his sister. She was a bit of a pain sometimes. She was always trying to be the center of attention. He figured that Ayla would probably get the whole sibling thing since she had a little brother.

Sawyer’s eyes lit up with interest when the other Teppenpaw mentioned music. “Music is awesome. I play the guitar. It’s actually up in my room. I want to expand and learn a few other instruments. It would be great if there was a group where we could experiment with different styles. Do you play anything?”

    There was that smile again. Ayla always had a feeling that when she got to school one of her favorite things was going to be being around boys that weren't her brothers. Granted, at nearly 12, she... more

        Ayla laughed at the description Sawyer gave her of the ballet he’d seen. It seemed pretty accurate, honestly. It was a lot of hard work, and maybe that way why Ayla hadn’t stuck with it, she had... more

          “My dad doesn’t really get too involved with the restaurant besides financial and, of course, eating there. My dad is a pastor for our church,” Sawyer explained. “So, everyone pretty much knows me... more

            Ayla’s brow furrowed slightly as Sawyer described his father’s profession. She wasn’t completely sure what all being a pastor entailed, really. The Tremaine’s didn’t subscribe to any organized... more

              Sawyer couldn’t help laughing at the fish description Ayla gave. “I don’t really think that I want to be that big of a fish. Maybe a koi will do.” He wanted to get to know his classmates and the... more
