Simon Mordue
Room for one more?
Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:21

Simon had been a bit dazed and confused through the length of the school tour, but he had made note of where the library was. The library was very important for anyone who meant to be serious about his studies of magic, of course, but it was also a place which was inherently attractive to Simon on its own merits. He had never been brilliant at any of his studies, but Simon nevertheless enjoyed being among his books at home. Books held no expectations, passed no judgments, had no ambiguous facial expressions; the histories were the only ones that even did anything for him to compare himself to particularly, literature generally being dedicated to showing what kind of person not to be. Books were relaxing, as long as he wasnít being quizzed on them.

Accordingly, the first time he got a chance, Simon found his way back to the library. He took several wrong turns along the way, but persevered and made it through the doors at last. Relieved, he just wandered around for a while, seeing what there was to see; once he was startled when a person a foot taller than Simon and with features that resembled those of the villain of one of Simonís old picture books asked if he needed any help, but other than that, he might as well have been alone, a comfortable thing for him. He relaxed to the point, in fact, that he almost missed the sign-up sheet posted near the front altogether on his way out, but somehow his eye lit on it at last and he stopped, reading what the librarian had written.

Simon bit his lip for a moment, but really, he had no choice. Father had been very clear that Simon should be involved in things at school; the thought of Father frowning at him had not been why Simon had allowed himself to be ushered to the Quidditch sign-up sheet, but it had not helped him maintain his lack of interest in joining, either. This seemed like a respectable thing to be involved in, and a responsible one, the kind of thing that would prepare Simon for his role in life, and it was here, where he had decided he liked to be. There were, therefore, few downsides to signing up, so he did - Simon Mordue, First Year, Library Assistant.
