Eliza Steinbeck
Neither am I... I swear!
Sun May 15, 2016 17:46

Eliza had been having a good enough time her first day at Sonora - with the exception of the first hiccup with Arianna, but she thought it had ended well. The blonde eleven-year old had been quick to assess the people that had turned the same shade as her as they took their place in the Crotalus table. Eliza had been proud, so proud that she was sure people could actually see a bubble of light around her. She had felt like the Queen of Sonora for the briefest of minutes.

The new Crotalus had dreamed about this since she had been accepted at Sonora and her mother had told her all about the magical world. If she was honest, Eliza was had been a bit angry at her mother for hiding such an important part of her life from her. Magic was amazing, magic made everything easy, but her mother had left it all behind for her father. It had been a bit daunting to realize how much her life was going to change - for the better! -, but she had also felt quite smug to know just how special she really was. Though it had sucked that she couldn't tell the girls at her other school.

After dinner had finished, all the new Crotalus had to follow a grown-up to their common room. Eliza got up from her seat, brushed her robes from any crumbs, and quickly followed the older witch. The blonde took mental notes about the path towards the common room - she didn't want to get lost! That would be embarrassing - and about the other 4 children moving with her. Eliza had to admit she was a bit sad about having to share her living space with 3 other girls. She had never shared anything in her life, to be fair she never had to. Her parents were wealthy.

The girl stopped surprised in front of a painting with a zombie and inferi in it. Eliza was repulsed and scared about it at the same time. She quickly moved into the common room trying to make the least eye contact with the painting and shuddered a bit. That had been sooo gross.

Eliza barely listened to DH Skies as she talked about the rules since she had been taking everything in. The common room seemed nice to lounge in and the colors weren't as bad as she thought they would be. She smiled at her surroundings and hurriedly went to the girls room to find her place. She finally found her luggage in front of a bed. She supposed that would be where she would sleep. It was okay, she guessed. The bed to her right had been already occupied by another girl that introduced herself as Cecilia Carey. She sounded very important.

“Good evening to you, too,” she replied to the greeting. “I am Eliza Steinbeck fro Manhattan.” Eliza smiled and for whatever reason offered her hand to the other girl. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Cecilia.”

    Cecilia recoiled a little when she first saw Gunther the Zombie, but more out of surprise than disgust. Once she realized that her eyes were not deceiving her, she looked the painting over from top... more
