Cora Procella [Aquila]
Freedom... sort of
Mon Jan 27, 2014 14:06

There were perhaps two things in the whole world that Cora loved.. well maybe three including flying. But they were scavenger hunts and competitions. This little trip was shaping up to contain both. Sure, Cora's teacher hadn't said anything about competing or getting a prize, but to Cora, even the title of the first team to finish would be enough. She knew she would have an advantage over some of the pure-bloods, or even the half-bloods raised in the wizarding world. Cora was a muggleborn, and she knew how to use a camera.

She glanced around, looking for a partner, running through options in her mind. Of her current friends, Astien was probably the most book smart.. but she didn't know how he would be in a social experience. Of course, if she still wanted to get him more comfortable in social experiences, he would be the right partner. Brielle would be a very good partner-- smart and efficient, but perhaps Beka would be the best choice. From what Cora knew of her, she was smart and driven to get things done, driven to compete as much as (well almost as much as) Cora herself. And then there was Meci. Cora and Meci had bonded in a very odd way in Spellworks class, and then again in the Quidditch pitch. But Cora still didn't know too much about her.

But it was still Cora's first year at school, and with six and a half more to go, she wanted to meet more people. For this reason, she would be completely happy with whoever wanted to be her partner, whether they be someone she already knew, or someone she would just meet.

Cora made her way into the center of the crowd, moving around with her classmates, waiting for someone to ask her to be their partner.

                  Cora was puzzled as Alannah insulted her. Cora's hair was, as always, in a braid pulled tightly to the back of her head. Surely it couldn't be that bad. Cora swiveled around to check her reflection... more
