“You’re probably right. That must be what that says,” Anisha nodded, when Parker said he’d also had some kind of pill possibly for pain. There was a line of scrawl in the notes that she couldn’t fully decipher. Apparently some things were universal between magical and muggle healthcare, and terrible handwriting was one of them.

Given that Parker had two scars to go along with his stories, Anisha couldn’t entirely fault his mother’s theory that he had a slight tendency to… well, she wouldn’t call it doing stupid things, but she was starting to think that there were two sides to this, and Mrs. Fitzgerald wasn’t worrying over nothing. Well, in terms of Parker’s tendency to get hurt at any rate, the rest was still a bit out there.

“Ok, well I know it’s your mother I need to tell this, but just so you know too… Nothing much different. Magic is something that comes from genes - the kind that make you, G-E-N-E, not the kind you wear,” she clarified, “Your genes tell your body how to build itself. Blue eyes or brown ones. Magic or no magic. Which genes show up in a person is… complicated, but sometimes things like blue eyes can skip a bunch of generations and then show up again. Magic is kind of the same. It’s a trait you possess, but it doesn’t change your physiology. You know that you’re still a human being, right?” she added with concern. It was probably pretty hard to adjust to the idea of magic, but to have someone doubt your status as full human being… Well, there was of course someone in the school going through exactly that right now.

Like you say, your mom needs to know you’re being taken care of. I can do a quick scan with my wand, which will show me if you’ve got anything worse than a bump or scrape going on. It will probably be easier if you lie on the bed, especially as your stomach’s of particular concern, but it’s non-invasive, and it’s not going to hurt - you might feel a light tingling sensation - and it works through your clothes.”

    Parker looked up from the floor. This new healer's voice was comforting. It reminded him of the voice his mother would use when she would take him with her on in person check ups. It was the... more
