“Cooling charms from Quiddich, right?”

Emily raised her eyebrows; this guy was sharp. She still couldn’t believe that he was related to Rose, who had seemed so on edge during the beginning of the year. Ryan seemed so relaxed. At least that meant Rose couldn’t be completely neurotic. Besides, she had seemed to chill out a bit as the year went on. Emily made a mental note to see if the Lyra had changed at all over summer.
