That's my summoning call!
Sat Feb 25, 2017 18:37

“Bye, Flo! Bye, Makenzie! Bye, Dustin,” Brett said in decreasing order of importance as he separated from his family members at the end of their wagon ride. His sister had told him to expect a bumpy ride, but he hadn’t expected it to be that bumpy! It was awesome! Super fun, like a thrill ride! Flo had told him once about something she’d read about that Muggles did, roller coasters? Those sounded awesome too. This was kinda like that, but like, not as much.

There was a big dude greeting everybody individually when they got off the wagons, and Brett thought he was pretty cool. He stretched up as far as he could to offer the man, who would soon be introduced as Professor Xavier, a high five.

He flounced over to the concessions immediately, popping a cookie in his mouth as he grabbed his schedule and looked it over. Brett wasn’t really an academically-minded kid, but he figured Flo would do his homework for him help him with anything he didn’t understand on his own, so he wasn’t particularly worried.

Professor Xavier talked about classes, too, as well as a bunch of other stuff, but Brett honestly sorta tuned out. No offense to the dude, but Brett was just ready to get this show on the road. He was eager for the tour, and even more eager to come back sometime in the future for his own tour. Flo said she hadn’t explored too much without him, so he was super excited to get into all the school’s nooks and crannies with his big sis, maybe get lost in the Gardens somewhere and find something exciting!

Brett struggled to suppress a groan at Professor Xavier’s conclusion, resisting the urge to toss back his head in frustration, partially because having a bad attitude on the first day was a bad plan and partially because he didn’t want to deal with his brown curls flopping in his face. Seriously, how far off was 4:30? Brett had no problems being sociable and getting to know his new yearmates, but he really wanted to get the tour going.

So. Hi.”

Brett turned to face the source of the greeting. A girl. “Hi,” he grinned at her. “I’m Brett. What’s your name?” When he had gained that information, he asked a follow up question. “Are you excited about the new school?”

        The stranger was smiling, and he had brown curls that were flopping about in a manner way more irritating than Jen’s hair. He introduced himself as Brett, so she guessed he wasn't a stranger anymore. ... more
