It's too early for that kind of talk
Sat Jun 24, 2017 20:36

Isaac hated Charms, but it wasn't because it was boring or he hated Professor Wright or couldn't understand the material. It was because it was so incredibly early. Isaac and his whole family knew he was not a morning person. His sister Lauren had always been super patient waking him up for school back home and let him throw tantrums while she drank her milk or orange juice or tea (depending on the weather). His mom was less patient, usually telling him to shut up or threatening to throw him out of the house in his pajamas if he didn't behave.

Luckily, those days were behind him, but his hatred for mornings were not. Just like everyday, Isaac walked into Charms like a zombie, with his almond eyes half-lidded and his feet dragging on the floor. He collapsed into his usual seat and put his head down on the desk. As usual, he had skipped breakfast in order to sleep a little more, but he didn't even feel hungry. Once lunch came around he would be ravenous, but for now he just wanted to go back to bed and stay there for the next four hours.

Isaac stifled a yawn as Professor Wright started the class and shook his leg to keep himself occupied with at least something. He hoped against hope that he wouldn't make a fool of himself and fall out of his chair or something equally embarrassing. The practical lesson was pretty easy and Isaac thought it would be a good one to remember to keep his younger sister out of his room.

Once the professor had finished talking, Isaac rubbed his cheeks and opened his eyes wide to look a little more alive before he obediently went up to grab a box. He returned to his desk and curiously looked at the objects inside. He couldn't imagine what it would feel like to be unable to open a bag, but if it worked he'd find out.

"Wanna be partners?" he asked, glad to be talking to someone instead of listening to a boring sleep-inducing lecture. "You can go first if you'd like."
