I’ll take that zero and detention now

Jozua stiffened his back as Professor Skies not only refused to allow him to leave, but also suggested he try the third year assignment. Didn’t she understand that he was too dangerous to trust with any magic right now? He wouldn’t even trust himself to practice Wingardium Leviosa around other people right now, nevermind anything in the intermediate range of lessons!

She could force him to sit here if she chose, that was her prerogative as the teacher, and Jozua was well aware that he had earned some kind of disciplinary action for what he’d done already, accident or not, but he could not in good conscience lift his wand again this class period, and so he would not, even if that compounded his original offense.
