Good for you.

This was the last year that Emerald would be able to get away from Topaz for the majority of the year. Next year, the little monster would be attending her first year at Sonora and she'd probably be in Aladren too. Ugh. So much ugh.

At least they would never be in the same classes. Emerald took a seat in Transfig and waited for the class to begin. Like a lot of Brockerts, this was one of her favorite classes. Actually, she really liked all her classes. Learning was one of the best things about Sonora and one that would still be here next term when she'd no longer have the other best thing.

Professor Skies began the lesson and Emerald received her wooden stick. Last year, she'd completely mastered the plastic tulip and didn't expect to have too much trouble with this either. She would start out easy though, with a solid color tulip. Emerald wasn't inclined towards flashy displays in the first place, nothing wacky. She was going to pick a color for her tulip that was actually found in nature.

She was trying to decide between red and yellow when a commotion arose. Emerald rolled her eyes. Jozua Sparks was always creating a commotion with what seemed to be gross incompetence. Of course, his incompetence wasn't as gross as his taste in friends.

And for Emerald, judging the fifth year as incompetent was actually being nicer than the alternative, which was that he was being disruptive on purpose.

Her attention was diverted further when Professor Skies hair went pink. She was pretty sure what had happened. Lily Spencer had either persuaded Jozua to create a diversion or taken advantage of him being generally incompetent to throw a color changing charm towards the professor's hair. The Pecari had given it away with her laughing. It would figure that Lily was the sort who thought she was just so super funny and clever that she'd laugh at her own tricks. Even though she was literally the dumbest person Emerald had ever met. Which made the Aladren inclined to believe that there wasn't a plan. Which was a crappy way to treat a friend really as you shouldn't take advantage of someone's faults that way especially someone you supposedly cared about. How very Topaz of Lily.

Which figured. Along with being the dumbest, Lily was also the most disrespectful person she knew. The fifth year clearly thought she was entitled to do whatever she wanted for reasons Emerald couldn't fathom. She didn't think it had to do with how the girl was raised or her blood status since there were other purebloods who were perfectly respectful people, including Emerald herself and Lily's brother had been in Owen's class and as far as she gathered from her cousin, didn't act this way.

Then there was the fact that she was a prefect! Okay, yes, it was by default-Emerald assumed that was the whole reason because she couldn't imagine anyone less suited for the position, except maybe Topaz as Topaz with any sort of power was a disaster waiting to happen-but still, one would think that being given such a responsibility would make someone more inclined to behave in mature fashion.

And now they were being threatened with a detention because of her (and possibly Jozua). Emerald resisted the urge to glare at Lily. After all, as someone from a big family, she recognized attention seeking behavior when she saw it and she wasn't about to give the older girl the satisfaction.

"This is ridiculous" Emerald muttered, louder than she intented but just loud enough for Winston Pierce to hear next to her.

    Winston wasn’t sure what was going on this year, but he blamed Jozua Sparks for it. He’d been the center of both the Charms episode and now the Transfiguration episode. One would think a guy who runs ... more

        Winston put his tulip aside for later grading once Professor Skies was done dealing with the more troublesome members of the class. He smiled in commiseration toward Emerald who he had been lucky... more
        • Aw, thanks. I appreciate that.Emerald, Thu Apr 5 17:35
          She was pleased to hear Winston's agreement. When the initial conflict had happened, two older students acted like Lily's behavior was perfectly okay. How would they have felt if it had been a member ... more
