He seemed... ok. Maybe kinda shy. He kept looking at his books instead of her, which was a good sign. It wasn't like when Winston Pierce had called her pretty and dressed her up in a ball gown. She still wasn't really sure she wanted to work with Isaac. But she also wasn't really sure how to say 'no.'

"Sure," she nodded, "You've probably got more ideas than me. I'm... not getting this," she admitted. Isaac was a fifth year, so he had a head start on this stuff.

OOC - just a reminder of what's set in place about Cleo's powers in case you need it. Also, the whole school was told she's a half veela, so Isaac would be aware of that.

    Oh my God, she was talking to him. Isaac wanted to sit closer, but he restrained himself. It would be too weird to just move over without asking. His mom had brought him up better than that.... more

        Cleo had agreed to work together, so Isaac piled up his things in his arms and walked over, glad for the opportunity. "We can probably figure it out together." He knew about her half veela status, as ... more

          "This paragraph on switching spells," Cleo asked, when Isaac asked what the problem was. "You ever read something and get like... The big flashing sense that this is something super important that... more

            "Yeah, totally," he said, sounding a little more enthusiastic to find a kindred spirit. "I get that in this class a lot. It makes me nervous for Advanced classes," he admitted. Isaac wished he could... more

              "Well, the plus side of advanced classes is that you can choose right? You might never have to look at another Transfiguration theory again after this year!" Wow. This was... less scary than she had... more

                  "You have college plans?" Cleo asked. That sounded super grown up, and made Isaac seem pretty smart. She wasn't really sure she was college material... Not that she was dumb, it just... wasn't... more

                      "Wow. A healer," Cleo echoed, sounding impressed. That was seriously ambitious. And pretty cool. She bet Isaac was smarter than he was letting on if he wanted to be a healer. "Great. I'll show you... more
