Emery was aware that the staff knew he was the Headmistress’s sonjust as they had likely concurred that Chloe was her daughter. Some of them might have met him at his mother’s wedding to Chloe’s father or met him when he had been a small child and she had taken him to the school for various functions prior to returning to being a Magizoologist. He knew that they would be professional about it all and not hold him to higher standards than maybe some of his peers would, but Emery felt that he needed to prove that his mother had raised him well. This meant that he would be on his best behavior at all times while in class. He wasn’t so sure he could say the same for his sister.

Chloe was unconcerned by the idea of the professors expecting her to do well. She would try her best, of course, but if she didn’t succeed, she would not allow that to really get her down. Chloe was loud and a chatterbox, so sometimes she could come off as a little ditzy, but she never let that bother her. Emery sometimes told her that people might not like her because she was too off-putting with how honest and aggressive she could be sometimes when she was excited about something. He told her she wasn’t allowed to be like that during class, but Chloe wasn’t so sure she could handle that. After all, what if they had a really awesome lesson? Today, seemed to be in her luck too!

Sitting in the classroom, neither sibling sat near one another. Emery sat in the front while Chloe sat in the back. This wasn’t because they didn’t want to be seen together, but rather, Emery wanting to make a good impression and Chloe just finding the first free chair she saw. Emery wrote notes as soon as Professor Fawcett began to speak. He tucked the syllabus neatly into his binder. He would go over it later in greater detail.

However, they would not be working on a Potion for the first class. This surprised both Emery and Chloe. Confusion etched Emery’s youthful face as he stood with his self-inking quill while excitement etched across Chloe’s fresh face as she bounded towards the door to follow her professor. Anything that was not of the norm tended to excite her. Emery was comfortable knowing what was coming, so change was less easy for him to take.

Chloe skipped along with the rest of the class until she found herself in the front hall looking at the painting of the crotchety old mean looking man. Chloe did not like this portrait very much, so she tended to not make eye contact with him. He was not a happy person. She listened only half-heartedly as the Professor introduced them to the painting. She thought for sure they were going to have to sit through a lecture from the cranky old painting. But Professor Fawcett had tricked her because soon after greeting the portrait, it swung open to reveal a swirling vortex. “OOOOO!” Chloe squee’ed, so incredibly happy that this was her first lesson for Potions. She didn’t care what it was anymore; they were going through a swirly vortex hidden behind a painting! It was like an adventure!

Emery, however, was not as enthusiastic about passing through the entrance until after he had gone through it and discovered it was nothing more than a forest. Clearly, this was amazing magic and he was awed by it, but there was nothing weird or frightening waiting for him and that had been what had mostly concerned him. Chloe, who had somehow managed to make her way to him, was practically jumping in her spot as she looked around. “Look, Emery! Look, look!” She poked him to get his attention as she pointed out into the trees. He didn’t know what she was looking at, so he ignored her.

It turned out that their lesson for the day would be a scavenger hunt. This made Chloe even more excited and, it actually brightened Emery’s mood.

While in the Mirage Chamber, Chloe and Emery had somehow ended up together again. It was probably years of working together on scavenger hunts or Easter egg hunts that it was just natural for the two of them to get together to find the items on the list that Professor Fawcett had given to them back in the classroom. Chloe wasn’t paying much attention to the list though, she was too busy restraining herself from running around the place. “Chloe, pay attention!” Emery said firmly. He had already marked off holly, belladonna, and pomegranate. He was pretty sure that he had seen lavender, but Chloe was going in the wrong direction.

“Emery, Emery, look! A butterfly!” Chloe squealed again as the butterfly flew around. She was such a girl. “It really does seem like a real forest! This is so cool!” Chloe started off after the butterfly and lost her footing as she did so. Emery watched in bewilderment as his sister went careening straight into another classmate. Chloe landed hard onto the ground after crashing and laid there for a moment before turning to see whom she had run into. “Ow, sorry! Are you okay?” Chloe asked the person, hoping she hadn’t hurt them. Emery just sighed from his position and returned to the class lesson.
