Parker Fitzgerald
Sorry what? There's a buzzing in my ear.

Parker had started to receive letters back from old friends and his sister, and it was weird. He'd always known they had lives without him there, but when he'd been home last, it seemed like nothing had changed. But there was his sister talking about how she was taking an advanced maths class in the middle school, and one of his friends wrote Parker about her girlfriend. She had a girlfriend, how did that happen?

His friends from home all seemed to assume he had been sent away to a military school like his older brother, and each stated that they thought that was unfair, as John Jr. was definitely the dangerous one. Seeing some of the things that sometimes happened at Sonora though and reading about the animals that Cleo had mentioned in her letter, Parker wasn't entirely sure.

So as Parker wondered into Charms he was lost in thinking about what his friends were doing. He'd seen that some of the garden had been taken care of, so he was sure that Cleo was out and about, even if he hadn't seen her. He wondered about his sister and how she was able to actually learn.

When Professor Right started speaking Parker was mid thought trying to work out how his sister was able to study. As the Professors voice filtered in he realized that he was missing the class, and that was definitely not how his sister did so well.

Parker reached into the box for second years and came up with, a vase. The first year next to him pulled out a flashing cube, which looked like a fun thing, even before it was charmed. Parker looked at it, and back at his vase. It was slightly boring by comparison. He turned around to see if the box was still there to change out the object, but it had moved on. So Parker took out his wand.

Parker remembered this from last year, and remembered how much he hated doing it. Last year he had a spoon, which was fun, cause he made it spin a bit like a top, and then bend like in the movie The Matrix his dad liked to watch, then finally it had danced a bit like it was in Beauty and the Beast. It was fun to watch, but it had danced as if it had a peg leg of a pirate.

Waving his wand Parker got the vase to move a bit, spinning really. Concentrating Parker tried to get it to move more like a dance in some way, but instead it kept spinnning like a top across the table. Parker had to move quickly to grab the vase before it went crashing to the floor.

As he sat back into his seat holding a still moving vase, the box next to him started to whistle really loudly. Parker tried to cover the ear closest to the box with one hand and hold onto his vase with the other.

The box was going crazy now, and Parker wanted to help the first year who seemed to be about as dazed as he was with the sheer noise, but holding onto his vase made it difficult to raise his wand. Suddenly the boy was able to say Finite incantatem and everything stopped except the flashing lights.

Parker shook his head a bit to get the ringing out of his ears the vase still moving around in his lap. Parker laughed at the boy next to him, "I think you get 1 1/2 credits. You did more than asked. Though next time, maybe make it a little bit softer."

Parker put the vase down on the table, and without missing a beat it started spinning again. This time a bit faster. Parker flicked his wand and shouted, "Finite". He hadn't meant to shout, but his ears were still ringing.

As the vase came to a stand still Parker turned to the boy sitting next to him reaching out his hand.

"Hi, I'm Parker and apparently I can't make things dance. You are?"
