I didn't do it!
Thu Feb 22, 2018 18:15

These past few weeks had been nothing but odd. Lily slumped into her seat in Potions and contemplated what had happened. Intermediate courses were getting a bit out of hand. There were strange magical occurrences going on that she couldn't really explain, but she couldn't gauge what the cause was. She didn't want to be on the bad side of any of her professors, but she was quite certain Skies was not a fan of hers. Lily was really surprised none of the other adolescents in her class had laughed with her; was it because they were too afraid or too stuck up?

Then there was CATS this year, which Lily had been trying to study for. She was doing pretty well so far in staying disciplined. She preferred studying in the gardens whilst she could, before the weather got bad. The ball also came to mind here and there. She didn't think she'd made the wrong decision, but she was still scared the ball would muck up their friendship irrevocably. There were so many things to worry about, but in that moment Lily wondered how animals were going to be implemented in their lesson today. Ratios sounded like a nightmare, but Lily tried not to be anxious about it.

It was clear what the potions were if these frogs weren't the correct size. In an effort to be a better student, she raised her hand. "One's a shrinking solution and the other, the blue one I think, is a growth elixir." She knew she wasn't the ideal Prefect like her siblings, but she wanted to rise up to the standard and be more responsible. Even though she wasn't popular with the snottier pure-bloods, she wanted to be liked by the rest of her peers. Gaining house points was an added perk.

The frog she was going to share with her partner was the size of a cat and looked at her with its grotesquely large eyes. Lily shivered a bit in disgust, but tried not to let it get to her. She was a city witch through and through, so interacting with any magical creatures besides pets was not common for her. "Merlin, that frog's big," she commented. "And slimy-looking."

Their assignment was to develop a mathematical formula based on the potions, and that bit gave Lily a load of anxiety. She was not good with maths and had tried to avoid it the best she could. 'Don't think about it,' she told herself, but as she stared at the vials that was all she could think about. "Shall we get started?" she asked her partner instead, trying to distract herself.

Suddenly, both of their vials exploded and Lily gave a little shriek. Most of the liquid splashed onto her and the frog gave a croak as it shrunk exponentially, seemingly without any cause. She was almost afraid it would disappear into nothingness, but luckily it stopped shrinking at the size of her thumb. "I'm so sorry, I don't know what happened. I didn't do anything," said Lily, shocked. It wasn't her fault, but who else could have done it?
