That doesn't sound good
Sun Nov 26, 2017 08:47

Raine’s standard method for dealing with class was to keep her head down and just do as she was told, as best she could. It didn’t always work, because sometimes she found the work too difficult, or made mistakes which drew attention to her. However, in wandwork subjects, she could usually get on with it quite well. Her practical spellwork was decent. So long as she took time and care to master the words, which were often tricky for her to read, but which she had become adept at listening in on other people to verify, then she did ok.

Today though, Professor Skies was throwing them a bit of a curve ball. They had to try the spell three different ways… Whilst that was well within Raine’s capabilities, she was a little bit phased by the directions that deviated from the norm, and by all the writing that seemed to go with them. She looked around, as usual taking her cues from others in the room. Other people were writing, which meant she had some time to think it over. She began to dig her quill out so that she would look like she was being purposeful and not just staring into space, although she planned to read over the directions again as best she could before she actually started work. However, before she could find her writing utensils, she became aware of the muttering beside her.

I can’t do this.

Raine turned, ready to offer her sympathies, but the person next to her continued to talk. When he seemed to have reached a stopping point, she gently placed a hand on his shoulder.

“I feel like that a lot of the time too,” she reassured him. “I… It’s tricky sometimes.” She wasn’t sure how else to help… When she’d been distressed, Joe had offered to take her out, but Joe knew her better than she knew Jozua, and also had more confidence when it came to asking things like that of teachers. In lieu of knowing what else to say, she rubbed his shoulder gently.

            Jozua sighed and relaxed his cross-armed stance as she asked in concern after the well being of his family. “Nah,” he said, shaking his head. “We’re Sparks. My great great granddad figured out how to ... more

              “Those sound very interesting,” Raine commented with a smile, as Jozua explained about his house. She wanted to tell him how nice it was to meet someone else who thought in usual ways, or at least... more
