One of the first things Emerald did the day after the Opening Feast was head to the library. She'd gotten a glimpse of it when she'd been led to her common room the night before and now in the light of day with more time, she could see it was marvellous! Normally, she wasn't given to excessive hyperbole. Showing too much enthusiasm tended to make one seem less intelligent but if anything was deserving of a feeling of excitement, it was an enormous library!

And she would finally have the opportunity to find a quiet place to read without the interference of small children. After all, she was currently among the youngest students in school so there couldn't be. And surely, her roommates would not be an issue and she wouldn't hvae to worry about any Pecaris getting into her common room and running amock. Even if her roommates did feel like being talkative at times, why, she could just come here and find a quiet corner of her own.

It wasn't as if she didn't want to be friends with the girls she was sharing a room with, it was just that Emerald was so accustomed to noise and found it rather...completely aggravating. It would be nice to have some time when it was quiet. So refreshing.

And there were so many books. The Aladren wandered around the stocks in awe though she tried not to let it show on her face. Fiction and non-fiction, many different disciplines, ones that weren't even taught at Sonora. And there would be time now, so much time, nobody constantly bothering her to play with them or screaming about how Topaz was being mean to them. Topaz always seemed to wait until Emerald had just gotten nice and comfortable and in a really good part of a book to start terrorizing the younger kids and making them scream. It didn't matter that she didn't have to do anything with them, they were disruptive and got on her nerves. Emerald knew full well Topaz had to be doing it on purpose to irritate them and her both and she was definitely looking forward to four years primarily free of the creepy little brat. Unfortunately, Topaz would likely be in Aladren too but for right now, Emerald wasn't going to think about that. She was going to enjoy herself.

That's when she spotted it. The library helper sign-ups! This was one of the two must do activities for her at Sonora along with book club. She'd be spending hours and hours in the library as it was so she might as well be a helper. So she signed her named to the list.
