Emily stared blankly at the potions worksheet in front of her, trying to force herself to focus on it. Though study hall wasn’t mandatory, she figured that going wouldn’t be a bad idea. After spending so much time focusing on her Quidditch tryout, she had gotten a bit behind in her studies. Her blue eyes narrowed at the questions in front of her; none of them looked familiar. Had she really missed that much information? Sighing with frustration, Emily glanced around the room, hoping to find someone she could work with. She never learned well by just looking at information, she much preferred to talk it out.

Emily fingered the corner of the paper, trying to decide whether or not she should approach him or not. She didn’t really like asking for help, but judging by their less-than-eloquent introduction, Emily figured Astien probably didn’t have a very high opinion of her anyways.

Tiptoeing over slowly, she tapped him on the shoulder.
