"U...um...d...does the school have a library?" Brielle smiled as the shy boy asked the question. Everyone seemed to like the library on their first day of school here; it's where she had gone first, as well.

Eirikur's voice was soft, and she was hardly able to hear him at all. Luckily, over the years of living with Evan, she'd learned to read lips a little because Evan would always mouth jokes to her across the table at dinner.

"Yes, the Reference Centre, just upstairs. I'll take you at some point soon," she agreed and looked down at the new boy closely. Brielle had remembered that the Headmaster showed her around the school on her first day and figured he'd be back to show Eirikur, too.

He kept his eyes away from Brielle as he hugged himself tight. His robes were becoming frayed rather quickly; if he kept picking at them, there'd be no more robe left to un-fray.

"...T...then....where...my classes will be...a...and...at least.....where....where i go...to g..get to the c...ce....cetus? common room...." Brielle pondered that for a moment.

"I'm not quite sure where Cetus is," she said slowly, "but I could probably show you to classes and things." Her Irish accent exposed itself whenever she said Cetus. Instead of saying "See-Tus", she ended up saying "Sae-tis". As she let out a deep breath, she attempted to piece together Eirikur's next question. She noticed that he tended to fragment things quite often.

"w...what do I do with my luggage? D..do I j..j..just leave it here?" She shook her head and said how she wasn't exactly sure.

"I believe the Headmaster will be down soon to meet you here," she explained, "I mean, he showed me around and things when I got here, and took me to the Aquila Common Room and such, so I'm sure he may do the same for you. In the meantime, though, I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have about school."

"....w...what are...what are the beds like?" Really, that was his question?

"Well... I have my own room in Aquila because there wasn't anyone in need of a bunkmate when I arrived," Brielle explained and shoved a thin piece of auburn hair behind her ear, "and it'd be silly to put me in a double room when there's only single me." Brielle hoped to at least get a small smile out of the boy. She could've sworn his eyes flickered up for a moment, though she couldn't be absolutely certain. "The rooms are pretty nice, they're cozy. I like them, they're better than the room I had at home."

    Eirikur felt his face flush red at her comment about his name. Shyly scuffing the floor with his foot as he thought about her question. "U...um...d...does the school have a library?" he asked, voice... more
