Aerin knew the signs all too well: the twitchy smile, excessive babblying, undue excitement. The librarian was on a sugar high. The second-year shooed the basket of sweets away from her and then glanced around the classroom. Most of her classmates would be bouncing off the walls before study hall was through.
Madame Toladaeri sure had a weird way of teaching. On the one hand she was strict, but on the other hand her lessons made it seem like she was asking for trouble. It was almost unfair that she gave out detentions so freely. Aerin grimaced as she remembered the detention she had shared with Zakir and Seth.

Yup. Aoife definitely didn’t like kneazles. She even said so herself. It was surprising for Aerin to see such fear in her friend’s eyes. “But they’re so cute!” The second-year admonished, and then... more
Hold him forever? Aoife couldn’t even look the beast cat directly in the eye. She was quite certain dogs didn’t like that and cats could feel the same way, it was better not to risk it. Aoife didn’t... more
