Flying wasn't the most interesting class, but it was the most fun because Mikey got to play around while others learned how to fly for the first time. Playing catch wasn't really the most exciting game either, but he liked to spruce it up by doing loops when the teacher wasn't looking and trying to catch it with one hand or with his non-dominant hand. He would've hated it if he had to learn the basics with the other kids. It was a little weird having their Charms teacher as their flying instructor, but Professor Wright seemed alright if a little long-winded at times.

Playing around during their "lesson" wasn't too bad compared to his other classes, but he couldn't wait for tryouts to start. He was looking forward to becoming the next star Quidditch player at Sonora. Even if he didn't make it to the pros, which would be totally awesome, at least he could brag about winning the Quidditch Cup somewhere outside of his club. His dad had been a part of a Quidditch team in college and Mikey wanted to do something like that in the future too.

Mikey brushed back his hair and practically jumped onto his broom and into the air. What he really wanted to do was race back and forth or find someone to do tricks with, but he highly doubted that kind of stuff was allowed during school hours. It was boring matching everyone's pace, but he didn't want to be known as the rebel. One of the international kids got his attention and Mikey nodded. The way the kid talked was kind of funny, but accents were always interesting so he didn't laugh.

"Yup, pretty much. It would be more fun if Mister, I mean, Professor Wright let us race. I've been flying for a long time, so this feels kinda, like, basic to me."

    Heinrich was not terribly impressed with flying lessons. Professor Wright was a bit wordy, in Heinrich's opinion, but so were most of the teachers. Not one of them kindly kept to simple... more

        Heinrich was glad for nearly universal nonverbal gestures and facial expressions because “Yup pretty much” sounded to him like the other boy was saying something was very beautiful or nice but the... more
