Dude, I'm not going to wear any ruby slippers

Connor continued to look at the kids for another thirty seconds before he called down one of the house elves and got a small Dr.Pepper with a bowl of Chicken Alfredo. It took him 15 seconds to realize he had forgot to ask for a fork and another 5 seconds to actually acquire one from another elf. He was about to dig in when he heard a high pitched voice speak to the right of him.

"Are you a transfer student or eleven, like the rest of us darling little children?"

        Well, his stab at the boy's age had been a little off. Poor kid, to have been taught for three or four years surrounded by a group of friends, only to have to his parents force him out of the routine ... more
