Arriving to Potions, Kit took her seat at the front of the class. She always sat at the front whenever possible. Judging by the looks of her – blonde and always fashionably dressed – one might not suspect the brilliant mind behind it that enjoyed classes. She would even go so far as to say they were fun. Though, the shortage in staffing hindered some of that fun.

For some reason, it seemed that the school had lost a lot of staff members and students. Kit wasn’t sure why, but she did overhear her parents talking about the possibility of sending her to another school to ensure that she received the best ‘education,’ which was really just code for ensuring she had more eligible pureblood males to choose from when she got older. She had barged in on them, even though, it wasn’t quite ladylike and convinced them that Sonora was the best place to be, because there were possibilities. She even had someone particular in mind, which was enough for her parents to leave it alone for the moment. She had no idea what she was going to do when she actually had to produce someone, but that was a problem for another time.

Today, her focus was Potions. She had left her long hair down, because it went best with her outfit. Under her robes, she was wearing a black and white short-sleeved sweater with a pink skirt, black stockings, and black wedges. Her belt was pink and black as was the bow clip that she had pinned on one side of her hair. Fashion achieved, but loose hair was not a good idea in Potions. Pulling a spare hair tie from her wrist, she pulled her locks up into a messy ponytail. Safety first.

Hair up and notebook out, she was ready to learn. And she was certainly not disappointed since they would be working from the Intermediate textbook. She frowned though as to why there were two sets of instructions. If they weren’t really that much harder and produced the same potion, why would there be two sets? Was it simply a matter of substitutions like how there were certain things that could be substituted in food recipes to make the dish healthier or was it more along the lines of how effective the potion would actually be. She made a note to ask the professor about it after class.

For now, Kit decided that she needed a partner. Turning to the person closest to her, she asked, “Do you want to be partners?”
