Arnold Bittleby [Cetus]
Watch where you throw that stuff!
Wed Nov 20, 2013 21:20

After wandering around hopelessly for about ten minutes, Arnold had finally managed to locate the Spellwork classroom. It would have been a lot easier if he had just asked someone, but he didn’t want to seem like a confused first year. Though thinking about his aimless drifting, he realized that he probably didn’t fool anyone. Luckily he still managed to arrive almost on time; the professor had just started to introduce herself. Unfortunately, because of his lateness, all of the good seats were taken, forcing the elven year old to sit in the back of the room. Of course, because of his short stature, he wasn’t able to see anything.

He tried to take notes, but without being able to see what the professor was doing hindered the process. All he could get from the lesson was the incantation “Scourgify” and its use. He hoped that being able to see the teacher perform the charm wasn’t terribly important. Arnold vowed to never be late to class again. If he didn’t grow, he’d be doomed to sit in the front of the class for the rest of his life.
As the class lined up to rummage through a box containing various filthy items, Arnold wondered if he should ask the professor to repeat the charm so that he could see it. Suddenly, a dirty rag flew over the shoulder of the boy in front of him and whacked Arnold in the face. Before Arnold had time to react properly, the boy whipped around and shoved a plate with a piece of pasta adhered to its surface in his face.

“Ay, ‘ow boo-tee-ful!”

Arnold took a small step back, wary of the sudden onslaught of words. Hopefully this guy wasn’t crazy.

“Er… if you say so…” The first year gingerly plucked the rag off the ground, deciding it was sufficient to practice on.

Nodding, Arnold turned around to return to his seat. Then a sudden idea hit him. He pivoted back to his potentially insane classmate.

“Hey, you didn’t see how the charm is supposed to be performed, did you? I can’t see anything back there!”
