Isaac Song
I miss my friends
Mon Sep 19, 2016 00:17

Saying goodbye had been really hard before getting on the wagon to Sonora. Isaac almost wished he wasn't magical so he could go to the same middle school as the rest of his best friends. He knew he couldn't tell them he was magical either, but it had never mattered until now. Isaac was depressed throughout the whole wagon trip, a relatively short ride from Southern California. Isaac sat with his arms folded and his eyes gazing out at the blurred scenery trying not to cry about how unfair all of this was. It wasn't that he couldn't make new friends; he just really didn't want to leave his best friends behind.

When the wagon arrived, Lauren tousled his hair before leaving him with the other first-years. Isaac looked around at his classmates and wondered how they felt about all of this. It was cool, being in a magical school, and Isaac had never experienced anything like it. His mom was a half-blood like him, but she'd never been in touch with the pure-bloods of her family. Isaac never really knew why, but he'd never thought to ask. It was going to be weird meeting people other than his siblings who had magic inside of them just like him. Isaac wished that his friends could have had magic in them too; it just wasn't fair the way people were just born with it or not.

Jason, Dray, and Manny were all going to attend the same school together for six years, and even though they promised to keep in touch and write letters (even though they didn't fully understand why he had chosen such an archaic form of correspondence), Isaac knew it wasn't going to be the same. They'd be going to school dances together and making new friends and joining sports teams together--all while Isaac was learning how to use a wand at school and trying to make new friends. He wasn't afraid of not fitting in, he was afraid of missing out and his best friends moving on without him. His greatest wish was for the four of them to stay best friends for life no matter what.

Even though he felt bummed out and missed his best friends a lot, Isaac was naturally social and did like meeting new people. It was a little overwhelming since he'd never been to a social event like this before without his mom or Lauren. Isaac grabbed a parchment with the class schedule and went to grab a brownie and a cookie.

Isaac thought 'professor' sounded so formal, but he would just have to get used to it. He was looking forward to seeing the rest of the school, and as Professor Xavier rattled off what kinds of classes and extracurricular activities the school offered, Isaac first tried to stifle his laugh at the inappropriate word included in 'RATS,' then perked up. He was definitely going to join the Quidditch team, but first he had to learn how to ride a broom. He'd always dreamed of flying but had never had the chance. The other club that interested him was the Sports Club. After playing basketball and soccer competitively since he was five, Isaac hoped he could find some people who shared his similar interests. That was another awesome thing about his best friends: they all loved sports and three of them had played together in the same league.

Isaac was familiar with the houses since his sister had told him about it before they'd arrived, but there wasn't one particular house he was hoping to get into. He finished off the brownie as Professor Xavier finished his spiel, and then turned to find someone to talk to. He approached someone and smiled, unused to this idea of small talk. "Hi, I'm Isaac," he said, trying to keep his tone friendly.
