Defense Against the Dark Arts was a really awesome class and Natalie couldn't help but be excited about the fact that they were having it in MARS instead of the Defense classroom. Even though it was a class she generally liked, there were times that she didn't really want to go. She got tired of studying and CATS coming up this year just made that worse. It felt like teachers wouldn't let them forget about the test coming up as if it were a life or death matter.

Sometimes Natalie even had dreams of a giant cat who was giving her a test and if she didn't pass, he was going to scratch her to death. She kept hoping a dog would come by and save her but it never happened.

Anyway, that meant she was bored and tired and frustrated and just sick to death of hearing about how important these tests were. The thing was, Natalie honestly didn't have to worry about taking enough RATS level courses when she was just going to end up being a socialite anyway. Even though that sounded boring too or at least that was certainly how Kelsey made it look. Just like studying for CATS, being a "proper young lady" was dull and dreary and complicated and irritating.

That was the thing though, just because she didn't have to worry about a career, because she was privileged, people thought she had it made. They truly did not understand that her life had challenges too. That she had expectations that she had to live up to. Big ones. Society's rules were supremely complex and her sister made it worse on her by being so blasted perfect all the time.

And the thing was, Natalie really did not want to be like that. As far as she was concerned, Kelsey had pretty much no personality whatsoever. However, that was what was expected of her.

So to have to hear teachers go on and on about CATS, on top of everything else, was fairly grating.

Fortunately, Professor Hawthorne seemed to have gotten the memo because she didn't bring up the tests once, probably for the sake of the younger students who had to be sick of hearing about these tests that they didn't have to worry about yet.

Once they were released, Natalie looked over the four statues before making a quick decision. She approached the Crotalus statue and tried only to concentrate on it and her annoyance at her sister's perfection. " Reducto " The snake on top of the statue blasted apart and satisfied, the Pecari walked back to the end of the line.
