Barnaby Pye
Making a come-back.
Mon Oct 10, 2016 23:01

Helping out in the library was the one extracurricular activity at Sonora that truly brought Barnaby joy. Book Club was always fun and he liked to sit around and here what kinds of things other people had to say about various titles. John Umland, for example, was someone with whom he had always admired. He had a certain way about it him that made Barnaby feel at ease or comforted.

He hadnít been feeling well when he arrived at Sonora, it had been an exhausting summerólate nights going over all kinds of books and sifting through notes with Tarquin, and he had not slept at all on the wagon ride. Tarquin had also began drinking a new tea and insisting that Barnaby try it as it made him feel loads ore energetic, but Barnaby had barely been able to keep a cup down.

The next morning however, after breakfast, as he walked back to his dorm to collect his bag for school and noted that the library was unusually empty for a school year he remembered that the library assistant program had not yet started. Last year he hadnít participatedóthe reasoning for why momentarily escaped him but he was sure there was a reason for it. There had to be. Barnaby Pye never did anything for no reason, that just wasnít like him. He noted that a few of the students in his year had signed up for the monitor position and though he hadnít participated as sequentially as they, he didnít see why he also couldnít apply for that role. After all, next year he would be in advanced classes and he was just as qualified if not more as the others from all the years he had spent going through his fatherís library with Tarquin.

So he added his name to the list:

Barnaby Pye, 5th year, Monitor

And set off to the room he now shared with only Jack Spenceróhe briefly wondered why Jax Donovan no longer shared with them but it was a passing thought and not one he could dwell on for long. There was something else more pressing that tugged his mind away from it although he couldnít quite be sure what it was, to collect his things for school.
