Never fear.. help is here!

Cora had managed to get to her Spellwork class without getting lost at all! Well, maybe only once.. or twice. But the point was she made it there on time!

She grabbed the first item she saw from the box, some mysterious rag with some mysterious stain. Cora didn't know what it was, and she didn't really want to guess. Most likely, their teacher had just squeezed bottles of muggle food coloring (or some such thing) onto different cloths, placing them in the boxes for the students to pick up. However, Cora didn't know this for sure, and though her stain was purple, she did know that a couple other things could be purple (like bug and snail guts) and she didn't want to think too hard about what exactly could have caused the stain.

At any rate, Cora decided she had better start on the spell. She expected it to go very easily, and it did! The stain looked a little lighter after only the first time she did the spell. This was not the case with a few of the other students who would nervously cast the spell, hoping and praying for some results.

Maybe it helped that Cora had been confident. Could spells sense this kind of thing? She had also tried very hard to do the exact movements her teacher had demonstrated. That would probably also be a contributing factor.

Cora set to work, hoping to get the stain to disappear completely when a girl about her age came up to her.

“Um, excuse me,” the auburn-haired girl had said, tapping Cora on the shoulder, “would you mind showing me how you did that so quickly?”

"Of course!" Cora told the girl with a smile, "I'd be happy to help!"

Growing up in the muggle world, Cora had gone to a muggle school. She had always been competitive, and even though she had only gotten as far as elementary school in her muggle education, she was always at the top of the class. Especially in the last few years, whenever someone needed help, they would go to Cora or her friends. So, Cora was used to helping people, and was eager to help this other girl.

Thinking of the past made her think of her friends, though. Where were they without her? She had told them that she was going to a boarding school, but couldn't be specific and tell them which one. After all, no one would be dumb enough to trust a couple eleven-year-olds with the knowledge of a secret world. Cora really missed her friends, and with this realization came a bout of homesickness. But, she had made pretty good friends in Beka, Cara, and most recently, Astien, and she knew she would enjoy her stay at RMI.

[OCC: I know it says wizard, and as a female, Cora is a witch. I hope that is ok!]

                It seemed that as soon as Cora suggested they ask someone for help, help came. Well, that is help came as long as this girl-Meci could help, which, at the time, was still undetermined. Cora watched... more

                      Cora giggled as Brielle got hit in the face by a jet of purple liquid, spewed from a stain. Was it rude to giggle? Probably. Well, actually, it was most definitely rude. Cora tried to shut up... more

                        Usually this is when someone offers to help clean this up with me, Brielle thought as she knelt on her hands and knees, still covered in the gook from the explosion. On the other hand, she thought... more

                            "Yay... More practice.." Cora muttered under her breath sarcastically. She had gotten the hang of it until Meci and this stubborn stain made her feel like an idiot. Cora did not like feeling, or... more

                              Brielle glowered at her disgusting robes, which were now beginning to dry with a crusty purple finish to them. She rolled her eyes and began to cast the scourging charm at the ground, the desk, the... more
