I wholeheartedly object to this!

Arianna had never really been a fan of Care of Magical Creatures. She wasn't a big animal person-they might get her clothing dirty-nor was she really the caring nurturing type. Sure, there were animals she found beautiful such as unicorns and animals she admired such as dragons and rattlesnakes, but on a one on one basis, not really her thing.

Professor Taransay began the lesson. As animals went, Arianna supposed Fwoopers weren't that bad. They were at least pretty and she could definitely see the benefits of one as their cries drove people crazy. That was something that could definitely be utilized for one's benefit by making an enemy listen to them. Locking her brother in a room with one that hadn't been silenced had been a thought on more than one occasion. Especially if Arianna put the silencing charm on Beau instead!

He'd be coming to school next year and the Crotalus was not looking forward to it one little bit. Her brother was stupid and irritating. Many times, more times even than she'd wished to lock him in a room with a non-silenced Fwooper, she'd wished she could trade him forJasmine. Of course, that wouldn't be all that fair to Aunt Holly. She had enough to deal with regarding Anya's resistance to being a lady. Beau would only be a bad influence.

Hopefully he'd stay out of her way, like Connor. Her cousin was a dork of the highest order, but at least he didn't seem interested in annoying her.

However, when Arianna heard what they were going to being doing with the Fwoopers, which was most definitely not torturing annoying little brothers, she was utterly horrified. She didn't want to be anywhere near a tick! What if one got on her? They weren't just disgusting, they carried disease. How was this an acceptable lesson?

She turned to the person next to her. "This is utterly revolting. How can we be expected to not only touch those things but risk Lyme disease if one of them gets on us?"
