I probably don't taste very good
Fri Jan 3, 2014 22:00

ďHurry up, Emily! Donít be late!Ē Arnold yelled at his classmate as he rushed to Defense Against the Dark Arts. As usual, after Cultural Studies, Emily was socializing with someone that Arnold didnít really know. Though he was still sore at her for roping him in to the House Elf Initiative event against his will, he knew that Professor Emilian didnít take tardiness lightly. As the door slammed shut at exactly 10:58, Arnold knew that today would not have been a good day for rushing in at the last minute.

Professor Emilian procured a tiny green creature and set it on his desk. Though it was little, Arnold knew that being small didnít make creatures any less dangerous. In fact, sometimes appearing harmless could make something even more dangerous.

Oh good, Arnold thought. Just another creature thatíll probably kill us in our sleepÖ .

Erkling. Before Arnold could finish copying down the name in his sloppy handwriting, he suddenly felt strangely lightheaded. Laughter filled the air around him, and he couldnít tell if it was menacing or melodious.

ďCome play!Ē the voice cried. Shrugging his shoulders, Arnold dropped his quill and stood up from his desk. Who needed to learn anyways? This strange voice seemed to be more fun.

All at once Professor Emilianís voice pierced through the fog, sending Arnold crashing back down into his seat. He ran his fingers through his brown hair, trying to figure out exactly where he had been going. According to Emilian, the voice of the Erkling had the ability to captivate anyone under the age of twelve and lure them away from safety.

Oh, so he had just been about to wander to his death. No big deal, right? So not only would the Erkling kill him, it would do so without his realization before it was too late. This would be an interesting class. With a swish of his wand, Emilian moved all of the desks to the sides of the room, giving the Erkling ample feasting space. As the Erklingís cackle began to pull him under again, Arnold prayed for the competency of his classmates.
